Hello friends! How's everyone doing this week? My week has been pretty lame... haven't had much time for video games lately because I've been worrying about real life stuff, like working, looking for a new apartment, waiting to hear back about a possible new job, etc. Finding a new place to live is hard! And so is finding a new job! I just wish everything could be settled already so I could stop worrying about it. Luckily, I'm going on vacation in two weeks, so that will be nice. It's really hard to worry about things when you're relaxing on the beach!
Another reason I haven't been playing many games is because there haven't been very many exciting releases lately... I've been waiting for Spelunky to finally release on PSN, because then I'll always have something to play when I have nothing else to play. They announced a PC release date for next month, but no date for PS3/Vita. Oh well, I guess it's just been a slow summer. I'll just keep biding my time with Persona 4 Arena (I recently reached rank B in online matches! Woo!)
