It might be a little later on than normal, but we here at The G.A.M.E.S. Blog still got up to things over the past two weeks. Michael continues to sample anime, both old and new, Nicolas is digging through some visual novels, and Jimmy goes outside the box (and outside in general) to try out a tabletop RPG.

In the video game department, there’s nothing new for me to report. On the anime side, I’m still keeping up with Baby Steps, Sword Art Online II, Sailor Moon Crystal and Aldnoah Zero. They added Cardcaptor Sakura to CrunchyRoll, so I started rewatching that, along with one of my favorite music anime, Chance Pop Session, which is about three girls who are brought together by destiny to become a famous singing trio. I also finally got around to watching Kill la Kill. I rather enjoy this anime. It’s crazy and violent and there’s fan service for both genders, so no one can say something like “oh that’s a show for perverted guys.” That’s everything new here, now I have to start preparing for the One Day Anime Con, on August 23 (Which also happens to be my birthday). That’s a double win.

After sorting out the files in my laptop and getting some personal matters out of the way, I plan on doing a good deal of writing and replaying Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. At night, lights off, headphones on.

This week, I don’t have a lot to report in terms of video games. However, a group of friends of mine has just started playing a campaign of Pathfinder, which is a table-top pen and paper RPG in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons. It’s my first time playing these types of games, and my inexperience shows by my struggle just to create a character. However, I’m looking forward to actually getting into the meat of the game, which looks to be pretty epic. On the anime front; I have watched a few episodes of a show titled Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, which loosely translates to “Goodbye Mr. Despair”. It’s a slice of life show that stars the world’s most negative teacher. Literally, the first shot of the series is a young girl skipping down a sidewalk, talking about how lovely and hopeful spring is, before cutting away to the teacher trying to hang himself. As it turns out, his students are all equally bizarre, with extreme mental disorders that range from stalking to schizophrenia. It has a dark sense of humor, and I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far.

  • I loved Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, even made one of the themes my ringtone for a while.

    Now that I have internet and my TV again, I need to do some catching up on anime and gaming.
