    Is that emoticon going to become a "thing" now? :[

    Thank you!

    It was a good thing that you told me about checking the 3DS eShop when you did. Because while I didn't find SMT4, I did find Rune Factory 4 on sale, and bought that because I wanted to try the series. I've been a fan of Harvest Moon (which is the farming side of Rune Factory) since the first GameBoy game, and Rune Factory combines that with an RPG system with stats.

    I just haven't played it yet because I also bought Adventure Island 2 on the Virtual Console, and that's a game that I've been trying to get through for years. So it's easier now with save states.

    I'm surprised I haven't heard more about the Professor Layton/Ace Attorney game yet! That was so hyped up when it was announced. Now, I didn't even know it was released. I haven't played any Ace Attorney games (heh), but I have played the first three Professor Layton games. The stories are really the best part about those games. If you're going to go for a completionist run of them, then prepare yourself for a lot of puzzles. But I do recommend them just for the stories.

    Also, I saw this and thought of a story you wrote once, speaking of Ace Attorney.

    Oh god, I snorted in laughter. :[

    Also, thank you for not spoiling me about one of the fights in chapter seven of SPM. It's the one with the Underchompers, where the battle screen looks like an old-school RPG. I enjoyed it so much, and I'm glad that I could discover it on my own!

    Speaking of gaming, what have you been playing on the 3DS? I need some on-the-go games myself and am always up for suggestions.

    Marcin I'm telling you because you're like the only one that cares but I finished my big fanfic project that I've been working on for two years!

    I really just needed some time off from work to figure out the last five scenes, and I scribbled out the first three. The last two were still giving me trouble, so I went back and started editing older chapters.

    And then wrote four pages of the next big project.

    But today, I just sat down and powered through those last two scenes. And now they are done!

    Also, your month sounds like it was super-busy. Though a part of me is jealous that you got to go to the Pokemon symphony and got to do some more observing. On the few nights that I have the time to go outside with a telescope, it's either really cold or cloudy.

    I did like chapter six of SPM, mainly because of the motif of the world. Though the kind-of boss rush did get annoying, but was easy thanks to Bowser. I haven't had the time to play anymore though.

    Sorry about the delay in my response! Life got busy.

    And that does sound like a pretty amusing read, especially with the plot holes being a legitimate threat in-story. I'd be glad to read it if and when you post this project. ^^

    Out store didn't lose power, but nearly everywhere else did. Pizza tripled in sales on Tuesday and Wednesday, while coffee quadrupled on Wednesday, and I'm probably looking at three and a half hours of overtime, so I was busy! My apartment lost power for a little while, but it came back up within a couple hours of being home, so that wasn't bad. Some houses really suffered some damage, and one was even cut in half from a tree falling down, but thankfully it seemed not a lot of people were hurt.

    We just got done having a wind storm with 70 miles per hour gusts that snapped several power lines, so several people have no power. It sounds like we're both having crazy weather! But that's awesome with the observation. Sounds tiring, but yay for research!

    How goes your writing?
    Not well. D:

    I have five more scenes to write and then I'm done with my current project. Just five more scenes where I already know which characters are involved, what they talk about, what they think about, and where they go. And yet the words won't come. I've been getting this kind of block on the project while working on the last few chapters. I would say that I don't want it to end, but I've already started on the first chapter of the sequel.

    In the meanwhile, I finished Chapter 6 of SPM and am in the middle of Chapter 7. Luigi just joined the team! I think the weirdest thing about Luigi in SPM is the fact that he has actual dialogue. In the Mario & Luigi games, he talks in the same gibberish as Mario does.

Latest Blog Entry

Well. I sometimes felt that I should revive this blog, but you can see I was too lazy/busy/both for that given the lack of updates the last couple years.

But the sad passing of David Bowie is a powerful enough exception, I think.

I'm far from the biggest fan of him (and we all know who that is on PC), but I've certainly enjoyed a lot of his music. And he was still making it, and good stuff as well!

So let's have some music education with some random videos...

And so does his heavier friend Scizor.

Nearly two weeks and unlike any other Pokémon line so far he hasn't had any entries in The Writer's Dex Project! =(

Why not cheer up the guy and throw together a poem or drabble or 5,000 word essay on him?

Have another entry out of the blue. Not too much basis behind this entry - just a song I happen to like, heard it again recently, and I figured I probably should have a few more blog entries involving female vocalists!

Still open to getting challenge themes btw. Come up with a theme of any sort and I'll come up with a bunch of songs that fit it! Well, hopefully anyway. Otherwise I'll just go with whatever comes to mind.

It's what I do best here. Besides music blogs I guess.

Anyways, more of you should still join in the Writer's Dex! While the selected Pokémon have changed (now the focus is Shroomish and Breloom), you can also still write about Helioptile/Heliolisk if you so wish. It's a group project where we basically try and compile a bunch of writing for each Pokémon, one line at a time! And they can be short entries too. For sake of example:

The Writer's (Poké)Dex!

Basically, the aim is to try to get as many pieces of writing out for each Pokémon line, with that rotating every week. Entries don't need to be long - can be a drabble, or piece of poetry, for example. Do join in! The first set up is Helioptile and Heliolisk, and everyone likes lizards that can zap you I'm sure.

And if you review other people's entries you'll get a bonus review too! :V
