(have some quick celebratory doodles)
I also happened to be finished with my exams today. They were not that bad, but honestly my school is pretty damn easy when it comes to sciences and maths. Humanities are a terror on a whole new level, but I studied a total of five minutes for all my exams combined, since I had math, chemistry and physics this semester. Yeah, talk about being a good student. I doze off too quickly when I try to look over notes or textbooks, so I just played games and chilled before the exam.
Hmmm…what did I even do this blog year? Probably quite a lot, but I barely remember any of it. Certain things feel like they happened so damn long ago. It’s a bit difficult to believe that a year has passed since I played Trails in the Sky, but if something happens to remain fabulous to me for so long, it’s a kami-ge in my book. Come to think of it, I started playing the Gagharv trilogy around a year after I started the Kiseki series. Oh yeah, I played the Muv-Luv series and Subarashiki Hibi. I recommend both of them strongly, although Muv-Luv will probably appeal to a wider audience. I also played all the Ys games available for PSP this past blog year. Falcom’s Ys IV remake is coming to the Vita this fall, and there’s no reason for XSeed to pass on this one. I also played Tales of Graces, which was really fun and made me go out and get Abyss and Xillia. Luminous Arc 3 was also a satisfying game that I actually played to 100%.
There’s some other stuff I played that were OK, but nothing outstanding. My backlog is still huge because I keep buying new games and beating those instead of playing what I already have, but the summer is here so I should be able to clear at least some of my PSP backlog. I’m hooked onto Xillia at the moment for console games, and will get Meruru soon, but if I manage to clear them then Nocturne is next on my list.
I’d like to believe that my Japanese has improved, but I’m not sure sure. I guess I’ve been playing more games in Japanese this year, so it has improved? I also started writing for Organizational Anti-Social Geniuses, which is pretty fun and I sometimes cover games that I was too lazy to review here.
So overall it was another fun year, since I played lots of games and visual novels. I haven’t done anything productive with my life at all, but I’ll play while I’m young. The grumpy jaded persona can come later, or never at all.
