Christopher wanted to take advantage of a Best Buy sale today, so we went out! I wore my new ODU onesie that Yookey designed. It has the cutest pastel dinos all over it:
Christopher has really been spoiling me lately. He got me another new game, Giraffe and Annika: Musical Mayhem Edition, which I’ve promised myself I will not open until I’ve finished Code: Realize / Guardian Of Rebirth.
This game just looks like the cutest thing from the box alone! It’s also quite well reviewed.
It’s a big thick box, comes with lots of goodies: a CD with the soundtrack, an art book and three patches!!
We also had McDonald’s for lunch. It was a really cheerful outing. Christopher tempered his spoiling of me with savage one liners such as:
Me: "I love this game already, it looks so stupid and cute."
Him, patting me on the head in front of the cashier: "Just like you!"
And, upon me commenting about it being a one-player game:
I had a subscription to WoW for a month, but as it came close to renewing I canceled it again. I want to keep playing, but since right now I’m reading Bears of The Ice and playing Code: Realize / Guardian Of Rebirth, it is better to take a break. However I am still very much in a WoW mood.
When I jumped back in last month, I got a new mount and race-changed back to a dwarf. Here are a couple of screenshots I took while playing that I found pretty or funny.
I also ordered a WoW gaming mat and pillow since they were having a pretty good sale, and I needed a new gaming mat after I switched my setup. Those should come in the mail today, but here’s stock photos in the meantime:
I’ll make another post when FedEx gets here with proper photos. ^_^
I’m playing two visual novels at this time, one with Christopher and one by myself. The image above isn’t really spoilery but anything else I say after this probably will be. Also, content warning for huge ass ramble on professional diagnoses of mental illness. 🙃
We finished Ever17! Honestly, I thought we would be playing it for weeks and weeks… as in, months… and there isn’t really a game I can play every single day for a minimum of an hour a day for months on end. When doing that, it is inevitable that at least a few days I’ll play when I really don’t feel like it.
So when we first started, half of me was excited, but the other half slightly dreaded it… just a little… I didn’t know if I would like it, and if I found that I didn’t, I’d have to still play the whole thing, if I didn’t want to disappoint Christopher. 😅
Now… I wish it HAD lasted months… it ended too soon.
While I admit I didn’t want to play every single day and sometimes I wished I could skip a day and have time in between to look forward to it more (which would apply to any game or book I am enjoying, frankly, as well as any tv show I am watching) on the whole, I immensely enjoyed the game.
The rest of this post includes written spoilers as well as spoilery art taken directly from the game, so it’ll be under the cut. IF YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED EVER17 AND YOU INTEND TO SOMEDAY, YOU SHOULD STOP READING HERE. Much like with Undertale, once you spoil this shit, you’ll never be able to enjoy it properly.
