I hope everyone had a good New Year Day!

I don't really have any New Year's resolutions or anything, but I do need to write or draw more things this year. I'm getting really out of practice. :T

I ended up spending quite a bit of money on the Steam Christmas sale, but the game I'm looking forward to playing is Darksiders. It looks pretty fun, it's another one of those games that uses Biblical characters and whatever. I hope it plays well enough on my laptop.

The one game that took me by surprise this sale was The Binding of Isaac. I've played Super Meat Boy and didn't like it so much, probably because it's ridiculously challenging. But Isaac is a lot more fun to play, even though it's still stupidly difficult. I just like experimenting with all the pills and stuff.

I also finally got LIMBO. That game is super atmospheric, wow. Kinda freaky, too. (THE SPIDER. THE BRAIN BUGS.) The design style just adds to the whole thing. Love it.

My goal is to finish these games, damn it. I need to stop starting games and leaving them hanging. I'm pretty sure the last game I finished was El Shaddai. 8|a

Two things:

First, today I had another Batman related dream. About two weeks ago I had one where I was Robin, soaring through the air and taking down badguys. It was a super exhilarating experience. Usually, when I'm dreaming of falling, I end up waking up in fear. Nope, not this time. When I fell, I just used a grapple gun that could hook onto the edge of a building and zip me back up. When I was held captive by thugs, I just broke free and snuck my way out to go meet up with Batgirl. (So we could both help Batman later.) It was an awesome dream, and I woke up with so much confidence in myself it was ridiculous. PROBLEM? DOESN'T MATTER, I'M A ROBIN.

I did wonder which Robin I was when I woke up. I think it was more Tim Drake than Dick Grayson. Nowadays I primarily associate Dick as Nightwing anyway. /nerd

So today I had another dream like that. The only real downside to these dreams is feeling incredibly tired when waking up. It's like I didn't sleep at all because I was too busy fighting crime. Seriously, it's the most exhausting thing.

Second, I took my first mock LSAT exam today. 3 1/2 hours of reading and testing and internally sobbing. I was more tired this morning because of the dream, and I accidentally skipped an entire page of questions. That was a major error.

Still, I got a 150. My internship supervisor says it's a great start, because that's the average score for someone trying to get into law school. She was happy about it, so of course I'm walking on air right now, lol. It just feels so funny. I've never felt that I was very good at school, so it's kind of weird to feel like I'm heading down the right direction with this whole law thing. I'm excited.

... ... .....so I just downloaded Hatoful Boyfriend.

Yes, the pigeon dating game. If it makes it any better, they do have human portraits. We just. Get to see the pigeons only. At all times. ...apparently they have nice voices though?

...am I really going to put off getting homework done just to satisfy my curiosity over pigeon boyfriends? Yes. Yes, I am. Don't judge me.

Download the game here.
English patch is over here.

First off, there are no plot spoilers in this post. I'm gonna make a separate post for things like that, because the game just released yesterday. This is mostly about the gameplay and some of the things I liked/disliked about what they did with the game.

Note: If you're on my Plurk timeline, you've probably seen most of this. |D;;

NO PLOT SPOILERS )

And that's my opinion. :3c
