Have you ever taken a side quest to another episode of a game that will never exist? Today we're not appearing on the world map, recreating 90's cityscapes, fighting walking dragons, marveling at asphalt, manipulating Zeboim culture, using war as a solution to infertility, reading insane lore magazines, winning NBA grand slams, buying Joe-brand parts, purchasing drugs, living through another year, getting outrageously upset at dinner, concluding it won't work, making it work, producing a nanomachine child, and growing into a nanomachine adult. I am a creature waiting to become extinct.
