August and September were… strange for me. I was dealing with exhaustion, stress, and motivation issues for a long time there. I’m still struggling with some of it a bit, but for the most part it’s all cleared up. I won’t bore you with the details but I am very pleased that a lot of it has been dealt with, and I’m back on track. I even managed to finish my spring reviews and do my winter and spring anime review roundup!
Last month we finally finished my year-long introspective on my life of gaming. For those who haven’t seen it, please check out my Shadow’s Sixty if you’d like to see the best games I’ve ever played. It’s been an amazing journey, and was a lot more difficult than I expected. If you take a look, I’d love to hear about your lists or if there were any big surprises on my list for you. There were also a few game reviews that made their way out, for Abzu, I Am Setsuna, and Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
This month is going to be a real test of whether I’m back on track. It’s summer anime review season! And that means at least a half dozen reviews upcoming – this season I actually have at least 12 shows that I would like to write about, but I can’t promise I’ll have time to watch and review all of them! We’ll see how far we get though, and I’m excited to be back writing again at full speed! The first review is hopefully going to be ready later this week, for New Game, followed by my first non-Crunchyroll anime review in a long time – Love Live Sunshine.
Aside from that, I doubt I’ll have time for much else. That being said, there are a few games in the pipeline. I’m currently working on playing through the sequel to the best JRPG I’ve ever played. To be specific, I expect to finish Act 2 of Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2 tonight, and I’m loving what I’ve played of it so far. If you want to see the rest, feel free to pop by my stream. Additionally, we have World of Final Fantasy and Rise of the Tomb Raider’s release coming shortly – both of which I am looking forward to. The last thing I would like to mention to you all here is that my next Selubration will be, barring any unforeseen conflicts, October 29th! The strawpoll will follow in the days to come and will have a few special additions that weren’t in previous months!
