Seeing as the HC Rush servers for Battlefield 3 wont pick up for another hour, I figured I'd pull myself away from that and my television to drop on in for a second or two.
First extremely long story cut short, I bought a laptop. This one to be extremely accurate. I didn't do any research about it nor do I know if it's really worth the price I paid. But that's beyond the point, I simply wanted something I could do my programming on, 'cause to be honest, it's just too hard to concentrate on my desktop. It's so pretty and capable of online gaming with extreme comfort.
I watched Darker than Black season two. It was... odd. I'm glad I took my brothers advice and watched the OVAs before the series. That would have been epically confusing if I had done it the other way around. Whoo man, epically confusing.
It wasn't bad, lacks some of the finesse the first season brought to my screen. But I can't really complain, it fulfilled my desire for kickass fighting and the occasional knife fight.
Another to check off is Fruits Basket. Not sure how I'd briefly describe this one. I liked it. That's all there is to it really. I'd probably be more inclined to recommend it to a female instead of a male, love story and all.
BAKA and Test being the one I just recently finished. I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on but hey, it was amusing. Normally repetitive jokes get repetitive and annoying, but I quite liked "Iron Man" with his "Demon Remedial Class", especially the circumstances that lead to some. Still, have no idea how these avatar things can possibly fit into the mix. My understanding is it's a fighting game where your stats are determined by your test scores based on the teacher who casts the field. I can sort of see how it'd be fun, but with that whole teacher approval and stuff, I couldn't see it motivating my teenage self to ignore women in favour of a learning game. It isn't Age of Empires 2, after all.
Sekirei was another one I polished off between the last post and now. It was pretty awesome until every charter I'd seen thus far was killed off within minutes... It was an interesting way to start a series anyway. Spoiler alert: The majority of the guys in the trailer (the one I watched, anyway) are killed off pretty quickly. Episode one quickly...
I don't hate the show, I was quite entertained, absurd amounts of character deaths reasonably quickly makes for interesting character development (seriously). Give it a look at if you enjoy blood and the occasional sword fight.
Yeah, I think that covers me. Work still blows and no other employment exists. But at least I now have a nice desktop and what I can only assume based on the fact it will turn on when I get it (hopefully), a better laptop than the one I had. By... a lot... Win win.
See you on the Battlefield (3).
