A Much Needed Blog

I know what you're all thinking right now. Why haven't I made a blog within the last month right? Well, it's because I've been generally disinterested in posting one, and really haven't had much to talk about either, but I feel as though an update is required to let all of my GameSpot friends know I'm still alive and well.

Life In General

Not much has really happened to me since I made my purchases blog in February, and right now life is going quite slow for me. I was suppose to attend one more semester of college for spring, but unfortunately funding to go to college, and afford books has been really tight this year, and I was forced to skip out on spring semester for college. I'm using this downtime I have right now until summer semester to look for a job, and do some studying for what major I'm doing. So far things are looking up in the job prospect, but it looks as though it may force me to leave California just to find a job which I'm okay with since I'm not tied down to anything. It might be a good thing if I get a change of scenery away from the desert. :)

I also noticed that I reached the 90,000 post mark on GameSpot back in February, and wanted to say something about it, but I felt as though a short blog pertaining that would be foolish, and if you don't believe me, here's a screen shot of my status for GameSpot:

I still go a while to go before I make it to 100,000 posts which is a goal of mine, and if I keep at the pace I'm going I might be able to make it there by the summer time.

Video Games

I haven't been doing much for games lately since most of the games I bought last year are still keeping me busy, but I did acquire two new games to my library, and those were Bayonetta, and Grand Theft Auto IV. So far both games are great, and believe it or not, but I've already beat Bayonetta. It's a bit short, but loads of fun with its action, and hilarious dialogue between the characters. Grand Theft Auto IV is a game I'm still playing, and I've barely even scratched the surface of the game. Top that off with the two expansions, The Lost and The Damned, and The Ballad Of Gay Tony, and you have a game that should last anyone a good while.

It's already 2012, and I've got two games already per-ordered, well three if you counted the other, but I'll get into why I decided to cancel my per-order on that. The first game is one I've been looking forward to for a while:

I've been looking forward to Max Payne 3 for a while now, and at first I was hesitant to per-order the game since it didn't look like the other Max Paynes, but after seeing a couple of videos, and how the game plays out I put my doubts aside, and per-ordered the game. I'll find out on May 15 if it's worth the money, but I have a feeling it will be. Another game I was originally going to get was Resident Evil 6, but after what Capcom's been pulling. I decided to cancel my per-order of Resident Evil 6, and instead put my money down on Assassin's Creed III. It was also quite a new surprise at what I got with my per-order of Assassin's Creed III:

A steel book case for when the game comes out. I gotta admit it looks awesome, and the artwork done by Alex Ross looks amazing. Too bad there's no demo with the case. I suppose we'll just have to wait this one out until it comes out October 30.

Television

I haven't been watching much stuff on television, and with The Walking Dead now concluding its second season there isn't much else to watch on television, but lucky I've got some anime to watch courtesy of my sister who thinks I should watch more anime. :P

Usually I'm not one for watching romance, but I gotta admit Suzuka is actually an expectation to this rule. I've watched about seven episodes of the anime so far, and I'm enjoying it. It's what you'd expect of a typical high school romance anime, but the characters are likable, and the humor is quite good. I really do need to sit down, and watch the rest of the series since I've been kinda delaying the series by watching other things. :P

Another anime I've been watching, well finished up now was an anime called Boogiepop Phantom. I've gotta say out of all the anime I've watched Boogiepop Phantom was the most engrossing. Each episode was unique because it plays out like an episode of CSI, but in a much more mature way, and there's some episodes that are downright nasty. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but let's just say anyone who enjoys murder mystery will dig this series, and you'll probably finish it up in no time since it's only twelve episodes.

I don't know why, but I've been on a spree of watching Batman Beyond once again since my interest was spiked after watching Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker with a friend. I really don't need to say anything about Batman Beyond since it was on my favorite animated series countdown.

I think that should about do it for this blog. It felt good blogging once again, and I'll make sure to write another blog with a few weeks, and not a month again. See ya later everyone! :D
