Greetings from TA ^_^

Latest Blog Post

Having fun with the Xbox One and the PS3.
I have decided that Final Fantasy XV is far better than XIII, but still nowhere near the grand heights of VI. Turn-based JRPG gaming is a thing of the past, sadly.

I also have decided that it is fun to play Battlefield Hardline with randoms, as long as I remember that it's nothing more than a game and don't get nearly as dramatic as some of the other guys I've run into while on there. I play games for recreation, and although I take my recreation very seriously, it still is just recreation, and it is not a solid foundation that my life depends upon.

Playing the Taiwanese and the Japanese versions of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is proving to be a bigger challenge than I first thought it would be, though, primarily because I have to learn what skills I am applying to my character's weapons through trial and error, as I cannot read a single word on the screen on either of those versions unless we're talking about the rather sparse usage of simple hiragana/katakana on the Japanese version.

And achievement hunting? I think that is going to be something that I am going to dive deeply into for a couple of months, then take a couple of months off, repeated infinitely. I have laser-focus attention abilities as long as I only have one thing in front of me, but even I need variety in my recreational activities.

The PS3 is a JRPG haven, I have discovered. Pretty much 95% of the games I own on that console are JRPGs. I regret nothing.

Some of you may have noticed that I have not been adding achievements to this account. I still am blogging with this account, since I already established myself here...... But the vast majority of my gaming has moved on to the CompleteKurisu gamertag. What I start on that gamertag, I fully intend to finish. Who knows, I might be halfway decent at Battlefield Hardline MP after I slaughter 40,000 randoms.

To follow up with my last blog post, I think my purpose in life is merely to play the cards I was dealt in life the best I possibly can. I should not let my disability define who I am. I am Christopher, and I have worked too hard to build myself up the last few years to let a little thing like an average midlife crisis chip away at it. I have wanted to take college courses since I was a young child, and now it is finally happening, even if it is only part-time. I have proven myself to be the opposite of expendable at my place of employment over the last year. I am getting around to reading the books that I have always wanted to read. I am finishing up the PS2 JRPGs that I have owned for many years but never completed thoroughly until now. I have been clean for five years at this point. Half a fucking decade. A part of me wonders where all that time went, while another part of me thinks of my past life as being centuries ago.

Cheers, people. Thanks for reading.

Haha! I love a real ale, a Bud or a traditional Somerset cider as much as the next red blooded man, but sometimes you just wanna mix spirits together and drink stuff!
