I was hoping to be able to talk about Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright today, as today marked the long awaited European release date of this game that can't possibly be anything other than pure brilliance. As luck would have it though, my preorder didn't actually arrive today and is now scheduled for tomorrow at the latest. And since I'm not going to be home tomorrow, in all likelihood I won't get to solve puzzles, present evidence and point fingers until Sunday night or even Monday.
That makes me a sad Phoenix.
(by the way, you wouldn't believe how many pics Google has of sad Ace Attorney characters)
Still, once I do get it I plan to tell you guys all about it, and I'm even thinking of writing a review in the Cblogs. I know reviews aren't usually the most popular of posts, but this one seems fair game to me. At the very least expect some impressions and silliness from me somewhere down the line.
In the mean time I, shall we say, "acquired" a fan translation of Ace Attorney Investigations 2, but I haven't had much time to play it yet. So honestly that's pretty much a dead end for now as well.
What to talk about, then? Actually, I'm going to keep it short today. I'm supposed to be studying for an oral exam on information and IT law (which involves mostly freedom of speech vs. privacy) and I've been procrastinating for far too long already. So even though I could talk about how I've been watching a frankly insane amount of Doctor Who, finally beat the Elite Four of Pokémon X, getting near the end of Kingdoms of Amalur, "acquired" The Hobbit 2, and I'm starting to think about which games to ask my parents for my birthday in two weeks, instead I'll just do what I usually do when I got nuthin'.
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
