Hello friends! Today (as in Saturday, not Friday) marks the one-year anniversary for my boyfriend and I! Not sure what we have planned for the day, but there will probably be lots of Japanese food (from our favorite restaurant) and maybe some co-op Spelunky action. I can't wait :3



In other news, I'm back to obsessively playing Persona 4 Arena. My current goal is to conquer the Score Attack mode with any character (but probably Teddie, because he's the only one I'm really good with). Score Attack is freaking crazy. The AI is apparently set to a level above the highest difficulty setting, so they basically just go ballistic at you as you fight to stay alive and take them down. There are 13 rounds, and so far I've only made it to round 4, which, ironically, is Teddie. I can't manage to beat the one character whose moveset I'm most familiar with! Although he is granted abilities that I don't have, such as using a triple Circus Bear attack, Teddie's most powerful, and arguably cheapest, attack. The first time I tried Score Attack mode, though, I figured I'd never even get past the first round (Yosuke), but I've since managed to do that, so I have (a slim) hope that I can eventually beat it. Just gotta keep practicing! 

I'm also starting to pick up on some minor details about the game that I often miss during the hectic battles, which are making me love the game even more. I'm starting to hear more of the hilarious lines of dialogue uttered by the characters while fighting, like Teddie saying, "I'm spinning more than usual!" when he's about to be All-Out Attacked or Chie shouting, "Everyday's great at your Junes!" while auto-comboing Yosuke. I also never realized how funny Elizabeth is. Her attacks are so rage-inducing that I usually miss what she's saying.

It would be cool if Atlus released some more DLC for this game (and not just color swaps or additional navigators). There are still several Persona 3 characters they could add. I'd definitely enjoy playing as Koromaru or Ken!  Or maybe they could expand on the story mode to reveal the mastermind behind the tournament. Or they could just work on making Persona 5. That'd be cool too.



No topsauce today... :(

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
