Odds and Ends: January 2016
Both Christmas and New Years were awesome. This week has also been awesome albeit cold and rainy; More so the latter. As a whole, there has been more media consumption than gaming lately.
The Internet really seems to like this show. Steins;Gate gas a decent plot and fairly original as far as anime goes at least. The story ties most everything together and wraps itself up neatly. The characters are average to mildly annoying as they all seem to over exaggerated tropes.
If there was one thing that I really disliked about the series it would be it’s pace: Steins;Gate takes about 10 episodes to really get started. Given that it is a 24 episode show, that would be about half the series. Overall, if I had to give it a rating I would say that it is either a solid B or a B-.
This game was my one and only purchase from the Steal Sale. I am having trouble getting into Undertale but I have only really dedicated a grand total of 30 minutes to the game so there’s that. Today was supposed to be a play Undertale, clean the entire house, do errands day. It ended up being a watch #AGDQ2016 on Twitch and play with the cat day.
The Walking Dead Season 6
Caught up with The Walking Dead. You know that you have been watching too much of this show when you start using free head space to evaluate the structures around you for their zombie resistance rating.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
I was planning on writing on a lengthier post on The Force Awakens but… holidays. As a side note, I think we have passed the point in our lives where we are willing to attend any movie midnight showing unless there is a strong social incentive. So like old people, we attended the first showing of the day at the local theater on the Saturday after it was released. Without spoiling anything: Movie nitpicks aside, went in with very few expectations, came out thoroughly pleased.
