I went to the pub for the first time in months. It seems to becoming standard now that you need an app for table service to avoid mouuth breating queuing at the bar. If there's one thing that comes out of this it should be that table service at the pub should be the norm!

@WoomyNNYes Do the have still to pay for the vaccination itself if they take up the $100? Given how notoriously expensive the American healthcare is I wouldn't be surprised if they are still out of pocket afterwards.

@jump Very astute. US vaccinations are free, thankfully.

@WoomyNNYes Are they? I've listened to podcasts with Americans mentioning they have paid, maybe it's funny one off occurance or something.

@jump There are bars administering vaccines and giving drinks/shots(alcohol) as incentive. Can't recall where.

Shot number two tomorrow evening - moderna.

Two weeks after, I'm going to my brother's a couple states away so we can finally boot up Forza Horizon 2. I got Horizon 2 for him last year, and we've been waiting for vaccination to play it.

edit: Update: Got shot #2 last night. My arm hurts like heck. Heck I tell you.

NHK News reports today that Japanese people 65 years and older are now 6% vaccinated. Yeah, well, so what @WoomyNNYes!? Why does that matter? Stop boring me!

After a year of Nintendo development being handicapped, due to the covids, this statistic may mean Nintendo may have a while yet before they can work at full regular capacity again.

As another heads up, Japans covid surge that started back in April has continued. As a result, Japan's state of emergecy (that shut down Universal's Super Nintendo World) has lasted longer, and expaded to more prefectures - the effect of more contagious uk, and possibly indian, variants.

So, why isn't Japan farther along with vaccine progress? The reason is, Japan's medical regulatory system wanted more robust testing on japanese/asian people before approving vaccines. Beyond that, I'm not sure why their vaccine production/approval system hasn't been streamlined like some other countries.

I like big vaccines and I like them now. Booooomshakalaka!! I got my vaccine. I feel alright after my first dose, better than I thought. My arm still aches a bit though, so I stayed at home and relaxed.

@WoomyNNYes It's useful info, really! Thanks! I do wonder why Japan suspects there's different side-effects on Japanese/Asian people than... non Japanese/Asian people though. Maybe I'm misreading it, but do elaborate on that part, I'm interested...

@TheJGG While equality for people is good, there are some genetic variations that affect medical outcomes. Data appears to show asian mortality rate for covid has been lower than for western anglo populations, and they aren't quite sure if it's because genetic/race or prior exposure to SARS in the asian region in the previous decade or so.(that knowledge may be months old now, don't know if there's new light on that subject). With more tech/data in recent decades, they are discovering varying outcomes for gender & race. On occasion, it can be significant enough to justify tweaking how things are prescribed.

US raised travel advisory to highest level on Japan: "Level 4: do not travel".

I was hoping for some summer olympics, because bmx freestyle is debuting, but things look shakey. I wanted to see some childish adults jump bikes.

@WoomyNNYes sounds like an opportunity to release Mario & Sonic Coivd Olympics edition, unfortunately it’s delayed though.

@WoomyNNYes At this point.I wouldn't be at all.surprised if they just cancell the 2020 Summer games completely and just move on to the 2024 games.

They could rework Mario + Sonic Olympics to add masks & tumbleweeds, remove crowds, and replace crowd cheers with a lone cough from the audience, like when a comedian bombs

Kyoto Prefecture (Nintendo headquarters) covid state of emergency extended to June 20. After a year of the pandemic, I'm not sure how this affects Nintendo productivity. If anyone does know, please share. Also included, Osaka prefecture - where Universal's Super Nintendo World is. Note: As a country Japan is only 2-3% vaccinated.

The Japanese government decided to extend the coronavirus state of emergency for Tokyo and eight other prefectures until June 20. That's the same day emergency measures for Okinawa Prefecture are due to expire. People are especially concerned in Okinawa and Hokkaido where infections have been on the rise.

How does Okinawa have to go under state of emergency; it’s a chain of islands hundreds of kilometres off the coast of Japan! All this is inevitable so no major surprises. Makes me wonder how this’ll negatively impact the game lineup this year.

@TheJGG Anywhere there are people and cases rising, straining healthcare. I suspect the people in Okinawa have visitors and also breath air. Okinawa is tropical, southernmost Japan. I think it attracts tourism.

@TheJGG Regarding how covid affects Nintendo's game line up, I've been wondering that too. I'd love to hear nintendo's productivity quantified, or put into context, while under covid restrictions. The fact that we haven't heard specifically how covid has impacted nintendo, makes me nervous, because Nintendo probably fears that discussing it will hurt sales and stock value, possibly because it's bad news for the next year+.

As a country, Japan only has about 6% of 65+ age group vaccinated. Which means, the general working populartion, Nintendo, is possibly no better now than they were last summer. On the other hand, MAYBE? they've gotten better at working remotely? I have no idea.

I'm just trying to keep my hopes in check for Nintendo's E3 presentation.

@WoomyNNYes I mean we have Paper Mario: The Origami King, and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, but that's about it in terms of original games. I'm excited for E3 but people need to be realistic, Nintendo's been badly hit, and their notoriously secretive nature means we won't know for sure. But they may have some decent digital infrastructure in place, who knows? But we'll find out soon whether it thwacked them this year.

Even if Okinawa's a tourist destination... shouldn't people be staying at home; what happened to that?

But I'm still glad we have games to begin with, I'd rather have ports than nothing.
