I found the weapon choice dictated how fun or clunky the battles were.  I chose one weapon due to the damage but it was really hard to fight with.  My character kept doing long ass combos, leaving him open to attack.  Once I got the crimson sword, combat became fun.  The water pistols weren't bad either.

I've been craving mysteries so I fired up my computer and played some Nancy Drew games.  I also finished Akiba's Trip which was a blast btw. 

Currently I am playing Rune Factory:  Tides of Destiny.  I just started so it is very slow going right now.

Is nobody playing this?  I finished the game recently and had so much fun, I actually did the new game plus and beat the game several times to see all the endings.  I have to say that Shion's route was the most interesting.  Rin was my least favorite girl.  I guess I'm not into females being tsundere.  I kinda rolled my eyes at first at al the stripping but it won me over since with was more funny than pervy.  Plus I was able to customize my clothing down to my underwear!  I'm such a clothes hound.

Well after taking over a month to finish AC:Black Flag (good game), I finally played a rpg and beat it in a week too.  I had 3 Atelier games in my to do list and finally decided to put to bed the Arland trilogy with Meruru.  I played blind and ending up with the Topsy Turvey ending.  The time management element in the game wasn't bad at all.  I hit the requirements well before the deadlines.  That said, I still didn't build up the kingdom all the way nor did I synthesize everything.  It was a fun trilogy and I can't wait to start the new one.

Oh no!  I am sorry to hear about your mom, Neal.   I'm not very athletic but if they have a Parkinson's walk/run, I will participate in your mom's honor since you so kindly biked for mine.

Well last week was a week of dr's visits.  I was so focused on my mom and dog I forgot about my appointment until they called me (I'm fine).  So my mom got her port in and she starts chemo Monday.  I am taking off work so I can be there.  She is getting 3 rounds, each lasting 21 days.  Then she will rest and have the surgery, rest again and do 3 more rounds of chemo.  She is getting chemo first in order to shrink the tumor before surgery.  Since she is getting chemo first, she doesn't get radiation.  They had wanted to do it first but the surgeon nixed that due to radiation causing a high leak rate.  Anyways she will be getting 3 drugs, one of the drugs she has to get continuously and carry around in a pack.  Due to her getting lots of fluids along with the drugs, it will be an all day thing.
My mom is strong so I am sure she can kick cancer's ass.  I am just concerned about her losing weight.  I've been taking her out in order to get some great food and fatten her up, but all I did was fatten me up.  She still weighs 95 lbs and has no buffer weight to lose.

On a high note, my brother had a healthy baby boy Friday.  He named him Hikaru after Sulu from Star Trek.  I told my bf I will follow suit and name our future kid Data.

I never realized what a headache insurance companies can be.  My mom has to wait on referrals to get appointments and procedures done.  The insurance company even denied her a PET scan and insisted that since it was stomach cancer, a CAT scan should be done instead.  My mom's surgical oncologist wants one done also so they will try to resubmit it and get the okay.  If not, I told my mom I will pay for it myself.  She did get a CAT scan and the cancer is almost through the wall.  So we were happy when the oncologist's nurse called to say my mom needs surgery and radiation but no chemo.

So my mom then goes to the surgical oncologist.  Apparently he wont know how much of the stomach needs to be removed until she is opened up on the table.  He is going to remove the lymph nodes around the area and possibly her spleen.  She is going to have a temporary feeding tube while she heals.  This is some scary stuff.  Then he tells us she is going to have chemo then radiation after the surgery.  This contradicts the oncologist, whom I am upset with since he didn't even meet with my mom after the initial consult.  We don't know what stage she is!  I told her maybe she needs to get a second opinion.  Anyways, she needs to get her heart checked out to make sure she is strong enough for the surgery.  She also needs to get another biopsy to confirm it is cancer since the surgical oncologist works for a different hospital.  So many hoops and contradicting treatment plans.

We are all trying our best to stay positive, but the surgery scares me.  I try not to think about it and instead I've been taking her out to restaurants so she can have some great meals before her surgery.

AC:BF - Finished sequence 7 of the main story after seeing I was only 34% done with the main quest and 60% done of the side quests.  There is way too much to do.  I am really bad at tailing people whether it is by land or by sea.  I can't tell you how many times I failed by being detected or losing the tail.  I also died several times trying to defend a friendly ship from a whole brigade of enemy ships.  That said, I am still having fun.  Go figure.

I too bought Broken Sword 5.  Still have to play 4.  Anyways I was proud that I didn't go crazy like last year.  I haven't downloaded a single steam game I have purchased (a little over a dozen).  At GOG, I went crazy since the more you buy the cheaper it is.  I have purchased 50 games over the years.  Several of those I have no intention of playing. But I have tried/beaten several of those.  I seriously should only only buy when I have nothing to play.  It is just so hard resisting the sales.

Thanks for the support everyone.  My mom has her first appointment with the oncologist next Thursday (seems so far way).  I am trying to stay positive but I have trouble sleeping at night.  I need to stop worrying and wait till the staging process to see how far the cancer has spread.  I am hoping she will just need surgery and won't have to do the chemo/ radiation. 

As for the dog, we named her Maya.  She is on antibiotics for a month.  Apparently heart worms live symbiotically with a certain kind of bacteria.  It is easier to kill the heart worms when you kill the bacteria.  After that she will get x-rays and an EKG to see how bad the infection is.  There is still a possibility she is too far along and will need to be put down.  If she is okay then she gets 2 shots that are two months apart.  First shot kills the adult worms and the second kills the baby/eggs.  She can't be active during treatment since the fragments of the dead heart worms could lodge in her organs and cause damage.  So cage rest for her.  Treatment is going to cost $700 something dollars.  If we turned her into the pound I am sure they would put her down since she is sick.  Luckily,  my dad decided he is going to adopt her.  She really is sweet.

I had my surgery yesterday and got my port removed.  I should be happy that I am in remission and no longer need my port, but I got hit with terrible news on Monday.  Found out my mom has stomach cancer and the sweet stray dog we found has heart worms.  The hits just keep coming.

Klyde -  Jumping into AC:BF without playing the other games seems to be no problem.  Most of the time is spent pirating.  The scenes that take place in the modern world sometimes allude to previous games, but those scenes are so few and far between it doesn't matter.  I just concentrate on the pirating and have fun.

Got hooked and beat Bloodmasque, the ios game from Square Enix.  It was actually really fun.  You can beat the game without paying real money.  I highly recommend it since it is free at the moment.

My brother and I get along so much better now that there is an ocean between us.  Actually I think growing up helped a lot.  I know that saying time and distance helps doesn't exactly help you.   I'm failing to impart good advice.  Just listen to Dice.
