    That very thing had came to mind when you mentioned you were playing it and liked the fourth wall breaking and humour. I had to not-spoil it, haha.

    Of late, it's been a turn-based game called Shin Megami Tensei 4, because my friend was playing it and seemed to enjoy it, and it was on sale for $13 in the eshop, incredibly cheap for a full-length 3ds title here. And it is pretty long! It's also hard (or maybe just more unforgiving at times and at others just dumb-luck hard), and weird. Maybe somewhere halfway through it rn.

    It has demons which you summon in battles (or otherwise fight) and to get them on your side you have to... talk to them and play random q&a games mid-battle. If they like your answers and you give them some stuff, they'll join you, if not they'll murder you. And sometimes you give them stuff and they'll just bugger off! They're very rude. =( And you can fuse them to make stronger demons. It's fun overall. Idk if it's dirt cheap over there (or has been).

    Before that I re-beat Shovel Knight (it has a free dlc mode which is basically another take on the game with a different character and playstyle!) which is very fun imo. 2D platforming with a lot of dying involved and fantastic music. And before that was the Majora's Mask remake, which was also good fun.

    My next game on the 3DS will be the Professor Layton/Ace Attorney crossover game which i got from some friends as a belated birthday present! I've played every other Ace Attorney game and certainly recommend those. Haven't played any PL games though.

    Woo! Well done!

    Also well done in getting more written and edited as well!

    Super busy is right. At least a lot was the good kind of busy! It has meant rather little playing of M&L on my Wii U, been more on-the-go 3DS gameplay instead. I may try and play a bit more before Xenoblade X comes out this weekend and consumes my life. :V

    Pokemon symphony was really good! Quite enjoyed it. A couple song choices were not what I expected but I was quite glad for others.

    Observing was done with a radio telescope through my laptop! Clouds were fine for the frequency we used, although storms less so (too strong winds require the telescope to stow :<). But we didn't have too many interruptions. I had a look at the data from my bonus observing and now can say I have a tentative confirmation of a tentative detection! :V (I'm more positive than that however, haha).

    Bowser is great for hurting stuff in the game, haha. Especially with stat boosts for boss battles. =)

    Absolutely fantastic to hear! Keeps the candle burning, huh? How you come to find that tech was more your gig?

    And yeah, it's crazy to look back on all of that, but you walk through hell to come out stronger, so even if it had disastrous effects for my life on PC, it was ultimately the best thing to happen in the long-run.

    I'm, like... the exact opposite at the moment. Not much going around here, just finishing up the last class or two of the English major. Some job hunting here and there. But I am impressed with all you've got going on, so long as you're enjoying it, I hope :D

    You and me! My busy month became very very busy and only now I'll have time-no wait I won't because weekend doing stuff with friends as belated birthday/post-exam celebrations. Including going to a Pokemon orchestra concert. :B

    Part of my busy-ness was self-inflicted because I applied for bonus observing and got it with a telescope despite already helping out, so I went to ~24 hours of observing or semi-active 'back-up' observing out of 48 hours. :V And then there was a hailstorm at the place I was housesitting and hence cleaned up after, then a conference, then a workshop... and that's just the last 7 days, I was busy before that too. All the busy.

    Bugger about the words not coming with your remaining scenes. Good luck with forcing them out! If you haven't yet maybe just put those plans for those scenes to paper and if so flesh them out slowly with more detailed dot-points?

    Cool with SPM. Yeah, Luigi talks in TTYD as well (and is pretty darn amusing actually with that). In Sticker Star he's purely background just as a 'find him' challenge in specific levels, which is less entertaining... But here he has the whole Mr. L thing going on too! M&L gibberish is amusing to listen to, as well as how he says 'thunder!'... I also like how he strikes a pose when using that power, heh.

    And what did you make of chapter 6!?! (I think I'm remembering the numbers correctly anyway). (!?!?!?)

    Cheers! Nice emote there btw, haha.

    It was a bit weird that chapter 4 turned into a shooter level at times, but it was still enjoyable, haha. Chapter 5 is alright too, but I prefer Chapter 6. It has a particularly neat theme for the place's location. =) Meanwhile haven't played much M&L past week but I am in the university now. I was also pleasantly surprised to see E. Gadd pop up, complete with Luigi Mansion ghost, vacuum cleaner and music!

    Nano goes slowly. Had a busier start to the month than expected, and not much writing done at all on the days I do uni and karate. And then with birthday I had dinner with friends and all so that took time out. :V Still, if I get 20,000, maybe 30,000 words in the month I'll be pretty happy. I'll try and hit the target today at any rate with a mixture of my main story and then some drabbles before I judge some sppf contest fics. [I should totally count words written for those reviews. :V]

    My project is an original story which I'm still figuring out but I have managed to make some sense of prior to Nano starting. The setting is an unstable world in which plotholes can grow and wreck with logic, but there's a company whose entire business is to resolve these glitches and keep things going more or less. Anyway, one day a guy decides to try and write a story and ends up getting help for it, but said help ends up wrecking stuff badly in the world. :V Going with a bunch of different characters in telling the story. And that's a suitably vague summary!

    How goes your writing? Also your avatar is hella cute.

    I have not. *googles* Interesting... not much info on wiki nor imbd on it though.

    I know there are a pair of composers who call themselves Bob and Bill. Not sure if they or I came up with the names first. =p

    Also, started playing M&L: Superstar Saga a week ago! I'm currently in Chucklehuck Woods.
