Err, yeah… It’s been a heck of awhile again, hasn’t it?
Still, I’m breaching no apologies this time, as there are no real excuses besides being generally exhausted and unable to handle blogging. As much as I like it, its a large chunk out of my leisure time and after my hours of civil service, the last thing I sometimes need is more typing on a computer!
But anyway, you’re not here to listen to my bitching. Today is a post of no special focus.
First of all, I would like to advertise the Humble Indy Bundle III, which is still open for the next two whole days! You may pay whatever you like for seven rather good games. What’s more, pay over about $7 and you’ll also get Humble Bundle II thrown in for free, bringing the total up to 12 games for less than the cost of a chinese takeaway. If that wasn’t enough, theres some free Minecraft membership thrown in, and you can choose to support charity with your donation. Personally, I thought it was well worth the cost of a full priced game, so thats what I donated (though all my dollars went to the developers).
For me, its highlights were VVVVVV, Cogs, Braid, and Revenge of the Titans. I’ve always enjoyed supporting Indie games in any case, since I’m a bit of a dabbler in game development myself.
Speaking of which, since I’ve had Enemy Within 0.8 playtested by some friends recently, I guess I’ll do some final polishing of it and then release. Part of me still wants more features in it, but at the moment its stability is ok, so its a good release candidate.
Over to some anime season thoughts: It turned out much as I anticipated. I’m most interested in Dantalian no Shoka and Bunny Drop; both of which have likable characters. Dantalian had a bit of a wobble briefly and is currently monster of the week, but its got alot going on subtly. Bunny Drop is just plain heartwarming and makes you feel good. Kurousagi and R-15 are stupid but entertaining. Kaminote somehow alienated me with its first episode, but I might try the next couple when I have time. Mayo Chiki and id@lmaster are also in my to watch list for braindead entertainment.
Lastly for today, a new wall adeptly matching the mixed-up-ness of this post.
It’s Fragmented Touhou Girls in Cheongsams (courtesy of mochi-f, one of my favourite touhou artists):
Anyway, thats about all for today. Tune in again soon.
