...and eat it. This cake, to be specific:
On Tuesday, Egonga celebrated his 25th year upon this earth. I went to see Inception (excellent movie) and went to Yo! Sushi for my tea (dinner... whatever). I love Yo! Sushi... it's expensive, but delicious, and I just love the way the food rolls on past on it's conveyor belt. I had Chicken Katsu, some fish maki, raw salmon, a duck and plum sushi roll and some custard and strawberry pancakes ^_^
Has anybody seen the Dragon Quest IX DS adverts, by the way? I can't find a clip on Youtube, sadly. You know the way that you can customise your character now? Well, the advert focuses exclusively on that. It features a teenage girl dressing up her Barbie-like character in bunny ears, while another teenage girl giggles at it. Yep - Nintendo have taken a legendary RPG series, renouned for it's level grinding, dungeon crawling and tough difficulty, and promoted it as a Fashion Designer. Nintendo, I'm so appalled that I actually have a grudging respect for you now. You're pretty damned ballsy.
Loeanubis got in touch with me recently about a re-re-re-revival of the GWE. Sadly they never usually work out, but Id be willing to give some time to it. Of course, none of you probably know what the GWE is. Solidruss will, and for some reason I'm thinking Elraptor does, although I'm not sure why.
And finally: I'm going to be taking a break from Gamespot for a wee while. I'm sort of losing interest, and running out of things to say. Absence makes the heart grow fonder (except the absence of an aeorta artery during bypass surgery - the heart REALLY hates losing that) so I shall return someday fresher, sleeker, sexier, and with a rainbow afro wig of some description.
Remember, this is not goodbye. This is "Sod off, I'm busy".
