Hello everyone! I haven't played anything new this week. I did play a ton of games though, in preparation for a Tumblr blog I've started, which was inspired by this blog about foliage in video games
. Mine is about marine life in video games. I started it last week, and I'm planning to update it once a day, so there's only a few entries so far. It's a lot of fun to put together though, and it seems like it's already gotten a good bit of attention. My first photoset, from Link's Awakening, has been the most popular so far, with over 50 notes. I didn't realize it would be so easy to get noticed on Tumblr. Anyway, you can check out my blog here
, if you want!
In other news, Dark Souls II comes out this month, and I'm totally ready to become absorbed in that game! If it's anything like the first two games, I'll probably play it for about a week, get stuck on a boss, get fed up with the game because of that boss, stop playing for 2 weeks or more, then come back and beat the rest of the game, falling in love with it. For Demon's Souls, that boss was the Tower Knight, and for Dark Souls, it was the Capra Demon. Both were early bosses, and I just needed to overcome a few hurdles and grow accustomed to the game's mechanics. Let's see if I can keep up the tradition in Dark Souls II!
