It's an autobattler with no gameplay where you collect cute girls. Everything is voiced, has tons of animated cutscenes and the main draw of the game is collecting your favorite girls, reading their stories, the main story and the events.

recommend me a new gotcha based on my past experiences:
got 3 separate accounts to endgame after quitting each time, dropped because events too time consuming
get to about tier 20 PVP before using my favourites instead of meta becomes not viable and lose interest
Very cool but too depressing and hard for a retard like me, dropped last month
>Pokemon Mastersex
Good but dropped from lack of content
Fun but impossible to catch up to endgame stuff
>Duel Links
Again, can't get anywhere without being a metakek
>Kirara Fantasia
Very cute but close to no moon reading skill

Genshin Impact
Why is Ganyu so heavily regarded? Every time they've announced a new banner since launch everyone seems to say "I'm saving for Ganyu." And now her banner is coming up so the moment of truth has arrived. Is she supposed to be the next broken OP character or what? Or do people just want her because they like the character? I didn't play the beta so I don't know anything about the gameplay of the unreleased characters.

But I was looking at my gems and realized that I'll easily have enough for a 5 star by the time her banner starts, so I was thinking of trying for her. If I don't get her I still end up with one of the other available 5 stars, all of whom I want, so I figure the only reason not to try is if Ganyu herself isn't worth it. Keeping in mind I have no intention of getting any constellations, what's the verdict?

Also it's currently doing a collab with Machikado Mazoku for some reason, probably because of VA connections

One of the advantages of playing on NA is that as a free player I can find out about a character and then save quartz for two years until she is on NA, so I am thinking of doing that. I have two servants I want in 2021 so I've also got that to do in the meantime. So, good idea? What do you think of her gameplay wise? Kit looks good to me since I like Buster servants.

Fire Emblem Heroes Choose your Legends
FE5_Dagdar_Artwork (1)
Last year FEH won an entire banner through votes and the people who don't care for the game were pretty upset. They are trying to hog another banner when they continue to get characters each month. We want to personally add the dumbest character by votes to show the Byleth Stans a lesson. The Character in question is Dagdar. Dagdar Is from the most obscure game Thracia 776 which was never released outside of Japan. He was part of a Pirate Gang and quit to join the heroes because one of the characters has tits. He has a Daughter but the Horny Dad being a good person makes us think he's the best choice
