No matter what game you're playing, that'll probably come in handy. Then again, usually giant bats are easily beatable. Unless you're playing Resident Evil 5 with an AI Sheva.:|
Acceptance is pretty cool. A lot of stuff has been accepted recently by various parties, and that feels kind of awesome.:D Like, if the past month of my life were an episode of Sesame Street, the word of the day would totally be acceptance. The shape (or color, depending on your preferences) of the day remains to be seen, but that's perfectly fine by me. I accept that, y'know. And it's all good.
Phew, that's it for the late-night philosophy session. All in all, other than the occasional boredom, my life's good and relatively stress-free. Minor social link levelups aside, it's all pretty much the same as it was at the time of my last blog post. Games, books, comics, movies. I don't really watch a lot of anime, but a couple of series have kept me amused recently: Gintama, Yakitate Japan and Star Driver. The first two are cIassics that most of you have definitely heard of (so funny, yet surprisingly deep -- I can't believe I haven't gotten around to watch these series sooner), Star Driver is quite new. The final episode aired this weekend, and well, it was pretty much the most epic episode of any series ever. You should definitely watch it.. That is, unless you like clear plots and hate pretty boys and giant robots. It had.. some holes in the plot, but it was one of the best "stupider" (as in total opposite of Death Note) series I've seen. I haven't seen many, but enough to pick favorites. Kiraboshi, y'all.:P
Read Bryan Lee O'Malley's Lost at Sea. Pretty... pointless in terms of the story, but it was filled with.. points regarding.. stuff.:| Definitely not the kind of stuff you'd expect from the creator of Scott Pilgrim. Look it up, but be prepared for something else than comedy, fighting and video game references. Finished a few books of Finnish origin, very enjoyable and amusing. Also started Teacher Man by Frank McCourt. Good stuff.
I know what you're thinking; "You can't possibly fit all this into that time!" Oh, I can, and that's not even all. I've also obviously been playing games. I've mostly been busy with Dragon Age: Origins. I've played it about 25 hours now, which is crazy when you take into account that I started playing it about a week ago. I'm so addicted to sidequests, I can't stop doing them!! :cry: I keep thinking that one more before going to sleep won't hurt, and before I know it, I'm completing the 7th one of the night. Hnnnng. What's more, I've played 25 hours of Hard Corps: Uprising, which came out on the European PSN Store about what, 2 weeks ago? To those of you who don't know, it's a prequel to Contra: Hard Corps. It's made by Arc System Works, also behind Guilty Gear, BlazBlue and Arcana Heart. It even features the same music composer and character designer, Daisuke Ishiwatari! :D Can't find a bigger fan of his on all of GS than me, I tell ya. So, I've been getting pretty mad scores. Always loved run-and-gun games like Metal Slug, and this one is all that to the 9th power.:lol: Sure, it's got some flaws, but it's this gen's best RnG for me. Also, been playing a bit of Yakuza 3 -- gotta get it over and done with before moving onto Yakuza 4.
Also been getting back into Marvel vs Capcom 3 and BlazBlue -- still accepting challenges, although I'm a bit rusty.:P
That's all for now, I think. What a wall of text, now that I look at it..:| Tl;dr version: played a truckload of games, watched some anime, read a few books, went all sentimental for a sec. See ya!
