Actually the extension of my ring finger to W while my middle finger is bent to push D makes it feel like my hand is going to cramp.

omg I'm so confused right now.
You stretch. This is ideal if shit talking at a moments notice is more important than finger health. Source: me.

Like I said the tablet market is pretty much dead at this point. The newest iPad can be found new or refurb for under 300 bucks so the ďApple taxĒ is negligible,. Otherwise you can buy some garbage from Samsung I guess.

Finally decided to move on from League of Legends. Too much time commitment and some changes they made to the game recently just didn't do it for me.

Walmart is running a deal for a Switch + game for $330. Ordered one with Zelda that should arrive wednesday.

Also been playing Divinity Original Sin (part 1), but mostly getting my butt whooped.

That was a fun game - will replay some day. I Also will play Part 2 someday as so far I only played it when it was still in Beta but never got back around to it when the full version was released.

I didn't quite enjoy BOTW because I thought it was too focused on inventory management which took away from the core Zelda experience I enjoy.

FWIW I thought that would end up bothering me, but it really didn't. I probably spent too much time thinking about it anyway and could have just gone with the flow.

When the game was in preview and heard weapons would break, I groaned and thought it would ruin Zelda.

In practice, I truly think BOTW would be a worse game without breaking gear. In doing so, the game forces you to explore more, make decisions on whether you want to fight this mob or find a safe way around (maybe you donít want to waste weapons on fighting...or maybe you need some weapons and there could be good ones in this enemy camp). Itís definitely not without frustration, but I think it added to the gameís appeal to me at the end of the day.
