So yet AGAIN, i’m late. So here I am again apologising about my terrible blog schedule and how i’ll do better next week when I clearly can’t.
Work is….meh. I haven’t actually done a lot this month due to lots of travelling and general laziness. Lots of time spent out and about, here there and everywhere though which makes is all better. Got to see my lovely girlfriend which is always a pleasure and managed to survive the terribly cold weather we were on the receiving end of for a couple of weeks. Had a super busy weekend in Stafford/Telford doing MCM Midlands Expo and the monthly CFC at Chips.
Expo was so much fun, as usual, as I get to see all the Stafford people and hang in the midst of some of the UK’s geekiest people! Didn’t spend as much as I usually do which is always a good thing and had an awesome time. Highlight was Dave’s boombox causing a large percentage of the food hall to start a giant Caramelldansen rave. SUch an epic moment!
Also another amazing moment was getting my copy of Blue Dragon signed by the amazing Hironobu Sakaguchi. Life making moment right there!
Purchased the Chobits boxset and a Lucy keyring and all was quickly over as we departed for McDonalds and eventually home. Next expo stop, Birmingham in March!
So the next day, slightly overtired, I made my way to Chips for my 3rd CFC. Managed to go 1-2 this time round which is better than last time. My first loss was to a solid Balrog player who kept me out of the air with good headbutts and played a good keep away which is a instant loss for Cammy. My 2nd loss was to a Gen player, which I felt a bit bad about because the loss was caused due to my inexperience in the matchup. Played a few more games with the guy afterwards and felt I learnt a lot about it and hopefully will do better next time. Looking forward to Street Fighter x Tekken now!
Another thing I got up to a few days ago was travelling with my good friend Lee to see the amazing Lights perform in Manchester. She sold out Birmingham and I was super gutted, so we decided it was worth making the extra effort and money required to haul ass to Manchester to see her. She was absolutely incredible, playing a good selection of material from both her albums and retaining her awesome voice. So glad I got the chance to see her! Here’s someone’s cam video from the night, hope they don’t mind me using it
So I haven’t been watching too much TV or anime recently. I’m still just as behind with anime as I was before but managing to keep up with GG, Hart of Dixie and 90210 as well as Raw. Wrestlemania buildup is getting pretty good now so i’m really excited for when it finally comes around and we get to see The Rock vs John Cena.
One anime I did finish this month though was Mashiroiro Symphony which was a truely beautiful VN adaptation with one of my favourite cute characters in a long time, Miss Miu Amaha
So my gaming of the month has generally been on League of Legends. I’ve been playing almost everyday, which doesn’t bode well for the stack of games I have that i’m yet to complete (or even start with a few). Been playing lots of Ashe as always, even bought 2 more skins for her and finally got to level 20 so I could start working on her rune page. Also got lots of love for Lux who is super fun to play as, albeit a little squishy on her own without a big burly champ to protect her. Tried a bit of Rammus yesterday and he may be the first tank i’ve really enjoyed playing so far. Power Ball is a really fun ability in itself for movement and for chasing, but also just to be generally annoying and roll into a mob of enemy champions to knock them all back and slow them. Hoping I can get the chance to play him some more and develop my playstyle as a tank.
Also pretty much finished Super Mario 3DS which is an awesome game and i’m really pleased I decided to get it as it was a lot of fun. I also bought One Piece Unlimited cruise for my 3DS which may actually get some play time now i’m done with Mario. What I played of it was really good and I liked getting to play with all the Straw Hats. Hoping I can bash out some more Super Pokemon Rumble too as I really liked what I played of that.
My manga reading slowed down quite a bit this month, as I only managed to get to chapter 160 of One Piece before forgetting to put more on my phone, which I still am yet to do. I will give shoutouts though to Fairy Tail and Bakuman, who are both in the middle of some really good arcs and I can’t wait to see how they will both develop.
So that’s all for now my readers. I am away for the next 2 weekends so I hope I will find chance to blog before the end of March hehe.
Until next time…
