This past month has had its ups and downs. I have not been out and about so much this month as I would like to be. I have been playing a lot of games. I am pretty much off of Fallout 4; the computer hacking isn’t up to my tastes. I have been mostly playing AION. I recently got a copy of Final Fantasy XV. I am ashamed to say that I have not begun gameplay as I also acquired a the first series of Naruto and am watching that!
I got back into chess club last Sunday. I came out 4-1-2! That broke down to 2 checkmates, 2 forced to resign to me, one loss and 2 stalemates. Not too shabby if I must say; I could have done better if my opponents weren’t so damn good at the game.
Ferg is trying to help me to learn German. I am not giving up on my Japanese studies! I also need to work on my English; I am fluent in it as I was raised in the United States, but my mental condition sort of “hinders” my speech in a way that makes me very hard to understand! So I am working on two foreign languages and my spoken English. Wish me luck!
Much thanks to my friend, Sam, for getting me hooked on yet another MMO. This one is different from TERA or Aura Kingdom. As a matter of fact, it reminds me of World of Warcraft, except it is free to play (but there are still purchasable items in the game). The game is called AION. To really get into the game, you will have to learn how to use the map and fast travel system. It took me a day or so to fully understand it all, but I get it now! There are two factions, six classes with eleven specialty subclasses to “ascend” to. The factions are basically dark and light. If you are interested at all, the classes and ascended classes are located here. My character is a level 43 assassin; I am pretty much a rogue! If you are interested, check out the website here!
Sam also wants me to try out World of Warships. I doubt that I will be that much into it as I am not a fan of much military games over RPGs, especially an RPG that I just recently got hooked on to!
I am on the hunt for English subtitles for the anime Comic Girls. I have tried subscene where I usually get my subtitles, but all they have are Arabic and Farsi/Persian. I am having one hell of a time locating the English versions!
I am going to play some AION tonight after I finish updating World of Warships u_u…
I just got a copy of One Punch Man season one! I watched the dubbed version when it was aired on Adult Swim’s “Toonami”. I fell in love with the show when I saw the first episode when Saitama still had his hair. He rescued a young boy with a “butt shaped chin” from an evil crab monster. Don’t worry, it’s not a big spoiler or anything. The version I have is in Japanese with English subtitles. I like that version better because the original voices that were chosen for the show enact the characters better. An example lies in Dragon Ball Z / Super. The English seiyuu (voice actor/actress) of Son Gokuu is a male that sounds carefree; the Japanese actress (yes, it’s a female) captures Son’s innocence in a whole new way. Speaking of Dragon Ball Super, I just found out that there is a Dragon Ball Super movie coming out on December 14, 2018!
I am looking for a digital copy of Fable III for my Xbox One. I borrowed a physical copy from a friend to play around with. I am still stuck on Fallout 4 on a terminal. I will pass that point SOMETIME in the near future! I was told that lock picking would be a good alternative, but there is no lock that I can find on or near the door.
My mother has been ill with the flu for the past week. Please think of her!
I am sorry for the lack of posting here as I have been rather busy. I have had a cough since late January that is still bugging me to this date. I was running a slight fever but that seems to have subsided. Since I have been slightly better minus the cough, I got my hair cut and beard trimmed. I have no picture to show but let’s say that I feel a whole lot better. My beard was messy and unkempt and my hair was running wild. I feel so much better now that I have been cleaned up! Now I have a nice and short goatee; I’m looking good :)
I went for a swim today. 45 minutes of laps and splashing around has a tendency to wear you down. I enjoyed a nice, hot shower and a good shave afterward and it was glorious! The weather here has been insane. Yesterday it was clear and sunny with a high of 65. Today it is flooding and the temperature is around 35. I can’t wait for this bad weather to subside and have it get nice and temperate again! I also can’t wait for outdoor pools to open in late May. Swimming is an awesome workout rivaling lifting weights.
I have been diving into Fable II and Fallout IV quite heavily, though I have been into Fable II more so than Fallout IV. I have also been watching my anime via the Xbox console as well. I am at the first terminal in Fallout IV. The game is very addictive. I like the fact that the game is very interactive and you have different choices and paths to take. The leveling system is pretty cool, too. My aim is pretty bad but Dogmeat helps me out a lot and I get lucky with a head shot once in a while.
I am working on a few projects. I am writing another story and am on the lookout for new things to render and make some more wallpapers. If anyone out there has something they want rendered, let me know! I will render anything that my skill level warrants. If you want a custom wallpaper made get a hold of me and I am sure that we can work something out.
A friend of mine, Falneth, loaned me his copy of Tales of Xillia for the Play Station 3. It is a live action, free roam RPG. It reminds me of World of Warcraft because it is also a free roam RPG; also because it is so freaking addictive! You start as a female character by the name of Lord Maxwell. She is in charge of “The Four”. That’s all I am going to say. I don’t want to spoil anything! I have been dabbing in it all week but haven’t had that much play time due to groups. The weekend is here, though, and I shall have many, many hours of playtime! All I have to say about this game is: play at your own risk–it is highly addictive!
I have been following Dragon Ball Super very closely and I find it almost as fun to watch as the original Dragon Ball from way back in the mid to late 1980’s. It features the fun tournament style martial arts mixed with the Dragon Ball Z style of “powering up”. It features a new take on super saiyans. It features a whole new take on the dragon balls. You thought that the namekian dragon balls were big, pffff you haven’t seen anything yet. The dragon balls in Dragon Ball Super are literally as big as whole freaking planets!
On to other shows! I have all of the current episodes of Konohana Kitan but haven’t watched a single episode yet. I am probably going to wait until it finished at episode 12 and binge the entire series. I have the series I want to watch this winter already picked out. I am going to watch Slow Start and Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san. Both are coming out this January. Slow Start comes out on January 7, 2018. Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san just comes out sometime in January, there is no set date that I can find. Both are Slice of Life, Comedy/Romance and School type… just like Azumanga Daioh!, my favorite anime of all time :).
I am ready as ever for Christmas to come around. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, Buttons and Tango, and opening presents. I hope to shift things up a bit this year. I want to visit my relatives in Kansas City to do some Hanukkah cheers. I wish the best for those who have no family or homes to go to… it brings tears to my eyes every time I think of those poor individuals.
I purchased Assassin’s Creed for the PS3, Shin Megami Tensei IV for the 3DS. Falneth loaned me Tales of Xillia and Dragon Ball Xenoverse to play as well :). I want to get Sims 3 and Tabletop Simulator for Steam. Both have been on my wish list for quite some time now. I plan on buying a Steam card to put funds on my account. Unless I get one for Christmas that is! I got my holiday shopping done early this year. Got parents taken care of a few days ago. I can’t wait to give them their loot! :D
