Never thought I'd see four months pass without an update, but there you go. Many things have happened since, primarily involving my trip to fun East Lansing, Michigan, followed by a very harrowing work assignment, followed by the back to school rush and basically a long period of sleep deprivation which did no good to my creative tendencies. But I've managed to get this update done and I'll be doing my best to keep at it. We've certainly got a lot of plot to go through yet and I don't intend on leaving people hanging, especially not now.
I've gone through so many games in the past whiles, games that others have reviewed or commented on more extensively than I, so whatever else I may have to add will be of little consequence. Let's simply say that rolling stuff into a bright and shining star is fun, but should not detract from blowing up spore-infested cosmic hula-hoops or prevent one from defending the power core.
One thing of note: thanks to my girlfriend, I've managed to vanquish my blob. Most of you know what I mean by this; the blob. Our blob. The living, breathing, thriving mass of sheer stuff that follows us through life because we put off organizing it or getting rid of the no-longer-useful parts of it. Well, mine's dead now. Went in, splattered it over the floor, sorted through its innards and bought new storage solutions to keep it in, where it will do no harm anymore. The rest of it is sleeping in the dumpster or being sold on eBay. If anyone's interested in old-generation consoles, drop me a line.
I'll keep drawing, keep practicing on improving my technique and, most importantly, keep working on another update. See you soon!
