Rundown (9/09-9/15) Bonk This Bank!

This is such a petty thing, but the way Pokemon Bank subscriptions are handled really bothers me.  At first I thought that if your subscription lapsed, you could more or less indefinitely recover your stored Pokemon, but no, they are erased from the server after a while, and then they are gone forever, which is utter nonsense, especially considering how renewing one’s subscription works.  You need to wait until you have 14 days or less left on your pass before you can extend the subscription, and if you forget, say goodbye to whatever is in there. No email notifications, no nothing. I have a near complete Pokedex (I missed Marshadow a while back), a box of shinies, alternate forms, and a Ditto with 3 perfect IVs in there.  Do you know how upset and fundamentally broken I would be if I were to lose all of that? More than a goldarn smidget.

Rundown (5/21-5/27) Cheap Cheap Cheap’s The Name of My Soul

I have probably listened to the soundtracks for each of the Parappa games about eight times now, and find myself constantly humming and thinking of the lyrics whilst I do other things.  Also, I ended up making a recording of me trying to sing one of the songs despite the fact that I cannot sing worth a toss and know next to nothing about audio editing.  I hope my voice does not sound too atrocious.

Rundown (4/3-4/9) killyourself.exe

WataMote Kill Suicide Death Shame HatredAnother week, another rundown, another instance of me being depressed and dissatisfied with my very existence, but unable voice my frustrations to any single person.  Sure, I can post about it online, but that’s a lot like putting a message in a bottle and throwing it into a sea of nothing but messages in bottles.

Rundown (1/03-1/09) Ha La Mushroom Cha La

0 PGOS Irrepessable Impulse of hyperOh my great goodness to gargantuan proportions, Mark Haynes (Alvin Earthworm) is rebooting Super Mario Bros. Z!  I loved this man’s original work, it was one of my favorite things in the world when I was still toiling around newgrounds in the late ots with my friend, who I think is dead now.  Seeing this man pull himself out of the furry hole and a meaningless existence as a dishwasher is so hopeful, so joyous, and something I will undoubtedly support on Patreon.  Yes, I have a lot of nostalgia for this sprite based fighting series, but I still think it’s amazing.

Rundown (12/06-12/12) A Most Leaky Upset for All the Boys and Girls

0 TWGOK ToiletSo, my plans for building my new PC have fallen through yet again, and my confidence is somewhere down in a toilet, being eaten by rats, as opposed to living on the streets where kids throw rocks at it and call it gay.  Anyways, here’s a recap of happenings in the video game industry over the past week.

Rundown (11/29-12/05) NDR3NSEK+TGA+PSX

0 DR2 Fuck Yeah alright here we go now get hyped energy to the maxSo, I’m currently replaying Final Fantasy XIII, because I felt I had unfinished business with that game, and I am thoroughly amazed that the creators were able to tolerate their creation.  As a writer, there is so much about this game’s story that drives me nuts, and I cannot believe that 65 million was invested into such a lackluster story.  That, and the gameplay’s auto battle system simply does not work as it is told to—  I’ll save it for the review proper, for now, The Game Awards and the Playstation Experience both happen, so here is a rundown of some of those things.

Rundown (11/08-11/14) Growing Up is Hard

1 P4G I need an adult becoming grown up no longer a child think of the kids youngsters little onesNeptunia Re;Birth3 is taking forever because it is a Neptunia game and twice as long as it needs to be.  Meanwhile, I have yet to touch Student Transfer, and now Higurashi Chapter 2 is out.  I would start binging, but I have two papers due next week, and I need to work on a group project in addition to my next novel, so I’m a busy little buckeroo.  I also want to buy my new computer parts soon, build it, and get my new PC all ready, but that may need to wait until after this semester… when I’m working full time for a month.  I also want to come out as transgender, but am so terrified of worrying my poor mother that I feel I can’t.  Also, I’m turning 21 on Wednesday.  Growing up is hard!
