My 3 characters in the Destiny beta.
The female awoken is a warlock and my main.
The male exo is a Titan.
And lastly, the male human is the hunter (really wish I could change his voice actor to one with a heavy Russian accent).
Loving the game so far and can’t wait to upgrade to the ps4 and get the game in September!

Staying up much later than I should playing this:

Made another portrait for my library in Animal Crossing. This time I went with one of my favorite fantasy authors, Jim Butcher! Author of the fantastic series The Dresden Files and Codex Alera.

P.s. Please return to Codex Alera.

Got my copy of Pandora’s Tower today! Thank you Operation Rainfall for the hard work you put in to show that America wants gems like these to be available to us! Also, thank you XSEED Games for bringing us The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower. You’ve definitely become my favorite game company with bringing those and all the many other games that no one would (Way of the Samurai 4 as one example - was dying to play it and you brought it). These 3 games have made the Wii a console worth owning and I hope Nintendo gets their act together and brings us more of what we want (another printing of Xenoblade would be great for those unfortunate enough to not get a copy - going for $100+ online - or to make these and other great games available digitally). Enjoy your journey in the Thirteen Towers everyone!

Ni no Kuni Wizard’s Edition came this week! Best purchase I’ve ever made!

While playing this game, I just want to watch every single Studio Ghibli film at the same time. It is amazing and worth purchasing a PS3 for.  

To those who got their copies cancelled, I am so sorry! I think they should definitely give you what you ordered. I don’t care if I would have to wait months for it, I’d take that over what you are getting. 

I’ve been playing The Last Story on my Wii lately. Game is sooooo good! Have yet to play multiplayer but I think I’ll be giving it a try tonight. 

I hope I’ll soon be able to play Pandora’s Tower. I read that the Wii U will have backwards compatibility for Wii games, so why isn’t it being made here yet!?

Finally!!! Took me forever but I finally got all my familiars to level 99 in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Helps that I can finally play it on the Vita and got to work on it on the bus on my way to school.

Now to continue onto the second half of the game. *Enters Dracula’s upside-down castle* (Taken with Instagram)

PS Vita Weekly Update 07/21/2012

This guy deserves subscribers/viewers for doing these videos.

If you are a lover of anime from Studio Ghibli, get a PS3 for this. The game is co-developed by Level-5 and Studio Ghibli.

PS3 exclusive (sorry Nintendo 3DS/DS - maybe it will become available later) released in North America January 22, 2013. *sigh* The wait for this game is going to be tough. 

Why I put off purchasing and playing the Witcher games, I have no idea. 

Oh yeah, because I’m cheap. Thanks Valve for the Steam Summer Sale. 

"Oh, you are playing The Witcher & really immersed into the story? Too bad, time to sit on your lap." *sigh* Love ya Remy. (Taken with Instagram)

Currently playing The Witcher on my PC and really enjoying it. Got the first and second one for a great price thanks to the Steam Summer Sale. So glad I finally got a PC capable of playing games. 

Also I just found out you can redeem the CD keys on GoG.com and get DRM free versions of the game (don’t know if this is better or not). Also, there are other free goodies like wallpapers, music soundtrack, creator interviews, and more.
