games i'm looking forward to

C’est magnifique

I have my issues with bioware, which I feel like is putting it maybe too lightly, but dragon age has gotten me through some of my most suffocating depressive episodes. 

The first thing Sylvanni realized was wrong when she woke up was the fact that she woke up at all.

As her addled thoughts struggled back towards fully aware, she focused on the odd thought. Bleary eyelids opened slowly, heavily, eyes refusing to focus on her dim surroundings. She needed her bearings: What had happened? Where was she? And what was going on? Why had she woken up, and why did waking up concern her?

Before her questions for the present were addressed, her memories came back to her, answering her first confusion. She shouldn’t have woken up because she was supposed to be dead.

Upcoming video games I'm looking forward to:

Torment: Tides of Numenera

I loved the first Planescape: Torment RPG, so I’m looking forward to playing this. I love that it will allow you to solve quests in multiple, different ways. I heard you’ll also be able to play as a female character in this sequel, which is nice, since the first game didn’t have that option.

Night in the Woods

I love the game’s soundtrack and art style. It feels quite rare to come across a game with such a friendly art style, yet has very adult themes. I like seeing works that do that.

Return of the Obra Dinn

I’ve played the proof-of-concept demo of this and ended up writing a positive review of it. I really like the premise of using a time-stopping pocket watch to solve multiple murders and deaths. This is from the creator of Papers, Please, btw.


I’m not sure if I’ll actually play this (I’m terrible at platformers), but I’m looking forward to seeing it come out and hearing people’s thoughts on it. I love how it looks like a 1930s Max Fleischer animation (the game devs went as far as using paper to traditionally animate and paint everything).

Ghost of a Tale

You play as a mouse bard. I feel like that premise alone gets me. The Redwall-inspired world that this RPG is set in looks breathtaking, and the fact that you play as a mouse simply makes that world feel even grander in scale. Also, the mouse is adorable. His name is Tilo, and he has a bell-hat.

Code:Realize ~ Princess of Genesis ~ Affinity Chart 

Translated and edited by me. 

I never thought this would be as much of a pain as it ended up being (´×д×` ;) The image quality is low and the text was really blurry so I had a hard time reading some of the kanji… they looked like blobs. Thankfully a friend helped me out (THANK YOU SO MUCH) or else I might have never finished ;;;

Dream cast for the English dub is as follows:

Ren is voiced by Microsoft Sam.

That’s it. That’s the dream.

Pokemon Sun and Moon : New protagonists, starters and legendaries

“ I’ve talked myself out of a thousand dark corners, Podrick. I don’t think I’m talking my way out of this one.

glimpse of lannister siblings' relationship in season 4 [ x ]

I’m still stuck on the fireflies-oni-fireflies thing, because those fireflies have been around since the start of 3a with little to no explanation

along with persistently weird electrical behavior throughout the season (anyone else remember Isaac’s ice bath and him screaming “They’re here, they’re here!”, and then the lights went out for no reason?)

I wouldn’t be surprised if the nogitsune has been around for much longer than we are being led to believe (Stiles had that car accident while driving though an electrical storm what if it wasn’t Jennifer?)

I spent a lot of time in 3a trying figure out if there was a definite link between the darach’s intent and the lightning, because the use of lightning was either very heavy-handed (wow! tension! very emotion!) or just very deliberate… I gave up after a while because I couldn’t connect it, but maybe I was looking at the wrong supernatural threat

also I’m really invested in finding out if that fox vs wolf mention this episode is hinting at something yet to come, especially if that something is Deucalion: the whole blue-skinned DEMON WOLF thing makes way more sense if you approach it as an “Oni” (typically shown as having red or blue skin, and the similarities between the oni masks and Deucalion’s transformed demon wolf face are rather striking) rather than trying to fit it snugly into the werewolf mythos
