Where is the time?
Where do you get the time too do all the stuff you want to do? For the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of stuff for me to do at work, don’t get me wrong I love that. Because I love my job, so its fun. And I’m frequent at the gym too, and that takes it time.
You get home, shower, make dinner and after that you have so little time to really do anything before you have to go to bed. Well if you want to get a decent amount of sleep at least. I got Watch_Dogs yesterday and when all was done at home, I could play about an hour before going to bed. I know I have to prioritize and I’ve already freed some time and stress, but its still not enough for me. I need the time at the gym, since I really want to get in form and I need it for my health. And even if I don’t want to say it, my health is more important than games…
But I’m not working this weekend so I can get some time with my games at least, but then there is the other “problem” or “i-lands problem” as we say here in Sweden.
If I get my copy of Drakengard 3 on Friday, I want to play that. But then I have Watch_Dogs also… And I don’t like shifting my attention between games, I want to be 100% focused on one game at a time. Yeah, what a dilemma. Sure it’s not a life changing choice, nothing will be better or worse no matter what I choose. But when you are limited for time and want to spend that on your hobby, you really have to pick at the seams. It’s not just videogames that suffers, I would like to write more. I really enjoy writing, even with my dyslexia. I try my hardest to form the correct words and to be able to write down what’s inside my mind. That’s why I would like to continue to write my own fantasy story, and I’d like to continue to write more stuff about “The Saga“. But I can’t get the peace of mind to sit down and write something more serious with details when I know I want to do other stuff. But like everything else they need planning and again… For that I need time, so if anyone have some good time management tips, please feel free to post them!
In about three weeks my vacation finally starts and I hope, I can get some of this stuff out of my system. At least I can do some catching up on the gaming part and I have so many other projects I’d like to do. Hopefully some of them will actually turn into reality. But there are so much talk about what me and some friends should do this summer and I’m realizing right now that it’s really stressing me out. Firstly I don’t now how much cash I’ll have and if we are going somewhere I’d like to have cash to buy stuff. And all this will of course take time, its time worth spending with my dear friends. I love them all, but it it still stressing me out a bit. But it’s only stressing because I want to do so much, so I know I have to narrow some stuff down and take it easy. But it’s easier said than done I’m afraid.

Writning and stuff
So it has been a while since I last posted. Well as usually of late, there has been much to do in my real life, like work and other stuff I have no direct control over.
And I’ve been having some writers block for some time now. I love to write, but I just can’t get into the mood and write something. I’d love to continue writing me and Elden’s fantasy story, especially since we rebooted it. The only down part in this, except for the writers block is my mild dyslexia, something I try to overcome as much as possible.
And speaking if writing I have been writing on a blog since 2006, that’s a pretty long time. Why do I do it? Well as I said I like to write so that is one reason, another reason is for me to process some stuff. I write both good and bad stuff that happens and by doing that it helps me process some of it. If it’s bad stuff I can get it of my chest, and if it is good its worth mentioning. The best thing about writing the bad stuff is to read it later when you have overcome what ever it was. And I do it for the reason that my memory can be really crappy at times, and there are some things I want to remember. I write my blog for myself and if others see it and read it, that is fine.
On another note, last weekend me and Elden started our Mega Man X marathon. We finished MMX1 to MMX3 and are at the end of MMX4, that was very fun. We had some problem.with a real shit controller but that’s fixed now. So next time will be a much better experience. Not really looking forward to playthrough MMX7… But that’s just something we have to do. And we would have loved to do.videos if these marathon playthroughs and talk about the games while playing them. Maybe some other time, but that is something I really wanna do.

Two long awaited JRPGs of 2013
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch
This will be a great game to start 2013 with, at least I hope it will be. But everything I’ve seen so far just makes me want the game even more, the music is nice, the animations are pretty good. And the English voice acting is really nice! Wonder if I’m the only one to think that?
Wouldn’t be the first time, since I mainly prefer English dubs over the Japanese ones. As long as I find them good. Hopefully this game will up to the hype I’m feeling for it.
Tales of Xillia
This is so far my most anticipated game of 2013! I’m a big fan of the Tales of series and I’m eagerly awaiting this game being released in English. Hope it will be released in the US and EU at the same time, this time around. So I don’t have to go around importing this title, because I’ll do it if I have too. You can bet on that! Since we have no real English trailer for the game just now, I’ll just be posting Milla’s intro from the game. I also really hope they make an English version of the song, or at least keeps it but as an intrumental version instead. Just like they did with Tales of the Abyss’ intro. Can say much more really, I’m a Tales of junky and I’ll take every Tales of game I can get my hands on. Hope we’ll get Tales of Xillia 2 in English also.

Zelda medley with violins
Just saw this video and I love it! I really like violin music when done right and I think this is some of the best stuff I’ve heard so far. Check it out! Damn, really want to play some Zelda now. Hope I can play Skyward Sword soon or perhaps Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D.

Shake, shake. Wiggle, wiggle.
Today it happened folks. Something I really didn’t expect to happen actually. But I couldn’t resist when it was so dirty cheap. But I want to be able to play The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword and a bunch of other games. Now I am awaiting Zelda Twilight Princess and of course, Xenoblade Chronicles!

Anime Intros I like #02
Now on to two of my favorite animes of all time, well at least those two who have meant most to me. First out is Magic Knight Rayearth. I’m pretty sure I would never have started playing JRPGs without this anime. Sure it isn’t anything special but by the time I saw this, this was not something I was familiar with. A good nice fantasy anime, that I liked a hell of more than I thought I would. And after that I decided to give JRPGs a chance again and tried Lunar Silver Star Story Complete and the SNES version of Magic Knight Rayearth. And then I was hooked, on both fantasy and JRPG.
And one of my most liked animes of all time is… Sailor Moon! Yeah, I really liked that anime. Especially the Death Busters arc, which was darker and a bit more mature than the seasons before it. Sailor Moon is also the first mahou shojou (magical girl) series I like.
Some people will probably laugh and insult me for this, it wouldn’t be the first time. I’m not afraid to admit what I like. I’m a child on the inside and it will never die!
Here is the third version of the intro to Death Busters arc. And while I do like the Swedish dubbed intro, I wish they had stayed closer to the original lyrics.

OMG new AMV!
So its been 10 months since I last did a real AMV. A bit scary to think of… 10 months has gone by lightning fast… Well anyway my new AMV is a Final Fantasy VII AMV. With clips from Final Fantasy VII Last Order. And the music used comes from BUMP OF CHICKEN and the song from them is Karma. The Tales of Abyss opening. Enjoy everyone!
