Finally got Lana's 3rd Summing Gate weapon. Seriously one of the goofiest weapons ever. ;)

I picked up Hyrule Warriors yesterday. I'm not very good at it, but I'm hooked! It's so fun, and addicting! I love the attack animations, beating down hordes of enemies, and taking on the huge bosses. Dodongo and Gohma were great fun to beat up, and the over the top attacks when you wear down the weakness gauge is pure awesome. I'm struggling to stop playing. So far I'm liking Link best of the warriors, though Impa is pretty cool. Cia's attacks don't seem to have much rhythm to them (at least not for me) so I'm kind of struggling with using her, and I've not used Sheik at all as yet. Maybe the next battle.

Still, tons of fun, and I'm looking forward to being able to buy the DLC later on.

Trust me, each character has a rhythm, it's just that some of them are shorter/longer than others. Give the game some time and you'll find their rhythms and love this game even more. ;)

I started replaying this game in preparation for the DLC that just dropped. Now going through the Termina map and trying out the new characters, I have to say....TINGLE IS THE BEST. *mic drop*

After a 2 month disappearance from Hyrule Warriors, I return to play through the various adventure mode maps again. Man, Cia is very good for crowd control. That heel stomp is something fierce.

Be warned, I'm going to complain about work again.

So, the last of 'my' magazines will end, meaning I will have even less work. I already lost one magazine in the shittiest way possible last year (I'll get to that later) and now there's just isn't much left anymore. Magazines are dead, websites pay peanuts (like, a quarter of the rate you'd need to make a living), life sucks for game reviewers who don't have popular Youtube channels.

What also sucks about the death of this magazine is that it actually had a pretty strong community, one similar to this one though a tad younger. They'll have to look for a new place now. I hope they figure something out.

Meanwhile, I'm not entirely sure what I want to do. Writing for websites is okayish. I can't exactly make living that way, but atleast it's some income. Besides, there's more room to talk about weird indie stuff online, which is nice. Mags rarely had room for that. And it's not like I want to stop writing, but... internet commenters are assholes. Really sucks the fun out of it, because I don't have the confidence to not read their comments.

And you know who are also assholes? The people who run the mag I 'lost' last year. It's a long story, but I'm going to tell it anyway. Two magazines - let's call them Magazine C and Magazine P - once belonged to the same publisher. Sadly, they didn't have any faith in P anymore and dropped it. I was writing for C at the time, but P had always been the magazine I liked best. I was in luck. Former editor-in-chief Youri L. swooped in, found a new home for P with another publisher and saved the day. Our hero! I applied and got my first job within a few days.

There was one problem, though. The former publisher did not want 'their' people writing for a different magazine. Which I thought was silly, because I was already writing for two other gaming magazines that weren't theirs when I got my first assignment there. Also, they were like one step away from paying their writers with Monopoly money and it was not like any of us had a contract. Keeping my long term goal in mind (becoming big enough to be able to earn a decent living as a game journalist), I decided to keep writing under my own name instead of using a penname. Big mistake. The way I was let go was kinda... Yeah. The editor-in-chief of C simply stopped responding to my e-mails. It hurt, because we got along and even had some non-work discussions about comics and stuff. Basically, mommy and daddy (the publishers) got into a fight and the kids (us writers) faced the consequences. Awesome...

I guess I'll try to find a job in retail now, or something. Can't be much more soul draining than this anyway.

That's terrible news! :(

The Magazine C & P bit reminds me of an exchange of emails I had with two correspondents of different parties about certain topics that at the time seemed trivial, but later in life--I'm talking years--I understood was more toxic than I realized (I was 18/19 at the time). Fast forward to today: I'm glad they resolved to how they did, but back then in the end I felt like I lost what could have been a friendship between both parties. What's worst is when I was younger I took things really, really personally and was emotionally distraught in the aftermath because I felt I was responsible or could have done something different that could have changed the outcome. Yeah, I don't feel that way today because one of those persons were just beyond immature and still is. It just took a bit of time to figure that out because I looked up to a lot of people when I was younger.

I hope things turn out better in the end for you pass this current event. If you ever need an ear to hear you out, my doors are always open. :)

Shoveled 2 feet of snow from our drive way for more than 2 hours today. Good workout. I was pleased that our workplace did not break the law and open any of their stores. Good for them. Keep up the swell job! :)

Looking forward to checking how full the inbox will be when I enter work tomorrow morning.

I figured it tasted like the best darn tasting s00p ever. Also, I love the "Peter the Pink" one. ;)

Also, whenever I see this set, I must post it:

Beat XenoBlade Chronicles a few days ago.  ***ing fantastic.  New favorite Wii game.  Sorry, Donkey Kong Country Returns. 

So I guess you were.... REALLY FEELING IT?

I don't know what it is about Tales of Graces f that I enjoy so much, but I started this game earlier today and found it really enjoyable. Something about it makes it a very pleasant game to play. I haven't felt this way about a game in ages (probably since Wild Arms 2nd Ignition). Very chill, very pleasant. It clicks.

I think I might stick to playing just this game until it's done.

So this is happening:

"go to vogue.co.uk and type (on your keyboard) up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A and watch what happens when you keep pressing A"

Tried it out: CONFIRMED.
