Stuff About Mondays!
But I Still Love You All

Monday, January 12th –
Hey again Giga-Landers! Hope your Monday is going well. I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I haven’t had much time to play games or watch anime.
Well, that’s not entirely true, I’ve been inching further in Person 4 Golden and it’s pretty spectacular. I figured out who the murderer was (without anyone’s help!) and it turns out I was right! Even through David’s incessant denial of my accusations! The reveal was done incredibly well and, even though I was pretty sure who did it, the scene made me so emotional that I was ready to take it out on someone else. This damn game is pulling on my heartstrings like no one’s business!!! I’ve written before about how great this game is and I stand by that. But, the game continues to surprise me with how just darn fun and exciting it is.
I also had a small chance to play Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- just a little bit. My biggest disappointment is that Kuradaberi Jam isn’t a character in the game. I am sad man. It’s a little slower than it’s predecessors but offers a lot more options in terms of attack and defense. It seems to be making a lot of ripples in the Fighting Game Community (FGC), but the biggest complaints are: 1) You cannot tech throws, so basically every throw is a command-throw. 2) The roster is too small, especially compared to the other games in the series.
I’m enjoying it so far though. The story is finally being expounded upon and all the (important) characters are getting a bit more depth. The arcade plays like normal: do fights, get a few lines of dialogue, end. But, now, the end of the arcade mode signals the start of that particular character’s story mode which plays just like a visual novel. Good or bad? You decide!
NOW ON TO ANIME!
Watch Log Horizon!!! Watch Rage of Bahamut!!! Watch Yuuki Yuuna was Yuusha de Aru!!!
That ends that session. We are currently writing our articles for last season’s anime, look forward to a few this week! BE PATIENT YOUNG PADAWAN!
In place of my long-winded anime sessions, here are some funny pictures!
