Here is wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017 full of nerdy goodness and many hours of video games that don’t suck!
Now that the insanity of the holidays has come to a close, I plan on making many more consistent updates featuring my artwork and thoughts on games I play throughout the year. You may see me experimenting with different mediums such as podcasts and comics as I try to find what sticks and that I generally enjoy creating. I will be updating my blog weekly, starting Sunday the 8th and continuing every Sunday after that!
Moving on to some updates!
Our trip to Tokyo is quickly approaching, and we have planned to do some really awesome retro video game hunting! Even though filming within shops is prohibited in Japan, I will try to sneak some footage or at least upload photos of our haul afterwards. We will also be visiting several arcades, the Ghibli Museum, Tokyo Disneysea and the Pokemon Center. Anticipate many pictures and gushing about Tokyo during that week in February!
Two days ago, Mzo and I finished The Last Guardian and I promise you that I cried for about 20 minutes afterwards. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I admit to being pretty upset by the negative backlash the game has received over the controls. While I admit that they are a bit wonky, they in no way make the game ‘unplayable’ as so many have whined. The Last Guardian honestly reminded me of playing really good PS and PS2 games back in the day: The controls and camera are tricky and sometimes a bit broken, but the game itself is so fun and unique that you just adapt and forget about it. The game is truly beautiful and memorable, and I am positive that it will stand out as a gem 10 or 20 years from now, when games of this nature are often better appreciated.
Trico is my precious angel and I will fight! everyone!! (ノಠ ∩ಠ)ノ彡( o°o)
Did someone say Pokemon? ….no? Well, since we aren’t talking about it I haven’t finished Moon yet, but I do really love it. I’m really close to the end, but I got the remastered version of Skyrim for Christmas and I was distracted by The Last Guardian so it took a back seat for a few weeks. I’m almost done, promise!
With a new year of gaming upon us there are a lot of things to get excited about! What are you looking forward to the most in 2017? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Until Sunday!
Oh, and Mzo proposed to me. No big deal. ٩(♡ε♡ )۶
