Hello once again folks! It’s your beach lovin’ guy, Eddie the Wolf, coming at you with a life update! =D
Let me ask you this: Are you guys ready for Halloween? Yeah? What plans do you all have for the occasion? I want to know! ^^ For me, I will be working, but I hope to get some Halloween gaming done with Resident Evil 4. I also hope to have a couple of drawings done in time since I want to be able to do a piece for the upcoming holidays. Lots to do between now and the end of the year drawing wise! The idea I have in mind this time will feature four of my characters dressed up as video game characters: my fursona along with my samurai, Raul Xi, will be dressed in my take on the Gunstar Super Heroes outfits while my lioness, Lucy Martinez, and my tigress, Jane Hanzawa, will be R. Mika and Cammy respectively from the Street Fighter series (particularly the outfits shown in Street Fighter V).
Since I did mention gaming, I recently finished Demon’s Souls via co-op sessions with Usagi704 and JiibayDan. I had hoped to do some with HartKnight, but I’m sure we will at some point. :) I look forward to doing so again. Since they have been playing this every year when the game first game out, it got me inspired to play it! I will say that the game does not let you leave without many of its punishing difficulty, but that is mostly due to human error. It was best that I played it with others because I think I would have given up on the game real easily knowing myself. lol For the most part, I had a lot of fun and had to laugh at myself for all the mistakes and blunders I made during my sessions. I do thank the fine folks I co-oped with for their patience. It was a tough game to swallow, but I am glad to have played it all the way. :) If I feel like it, I may even play the New Game + myself, but it really depends on how I feel about it. Still, I’m up for more co-op sessions for the New Game stuff if you guys are. And, I might even consider continuing with the Souls series. I liked it that much, and I always welcome a challenge! I can even see why you guys would play this series for Halloween. A lot of the bosses you face certainly would send chills down any gamer’s spine.
So the question is how would I score Demon’s Souls? I think it gets an 8.5 out of 10. The game is very challenging, and I appreciate that greatly! The game would otherwise be a 9 if it weren’t for the difficulty. Yeah, I’m going to be that guy. XD Still, the way the game integrates the hint messages is a big welcome and very innovative adding great depth to the game’s lore. It’s really refreshing to see something like that in video games these days. It’s definitely a game to look into for those wanting a good challenge. And I mean a really good challenge. ;)
Next up will be Resident Evil 4. Now I’ve played it once on the Nintendo Gamecube, and I had a complete blast being freaked with certain situations with it. I picked up the HD version on the PS3 while there was a sale going on awhile back via PlayStation Store. No doubt I’m going to have similar unnerving experiences throughout, but I’m sure to have loads of fun. :) After I’m done with that and Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy for my friend’s YouTube channel, I plan to go back to GTA: San Andreas which will conclude the PS2 trilogy set I purchased earlier this year. After that, I will continue to play more of Tales of Symphonia and Xillia on the PS3.
Speaking of the Tales of series, I plan on knocking away at my backlog which includes Tales of Phantasia. I know I keep saying that I will, but I will do my best to get to it. ^^; I’m sure many fans enjoy the game, but I’m playing the GBA version of it. If I had my hands on the SNES or PS1 version, I probably would enjoy it more for the fact that combat looks and plays out real smooth compared to how sluggish it is on the GBA. :/ That’s really why I’ve taken so long to beat it. Plus, I’m stuck in one section of the game where it’s a maze. The last thing I want to do is start all over. I WANT TO BE DONE WITH IT! DX If you look at my backlog, the games you see in my “Now Playing” section is what I plan to focus on before trying to tackle other games. After that, I hope to get to other games I have been in the middle of for quite some time. I don’t know… There’s just a lot I really need to play through. ^^; Maybe I will have a month dedicated to a theme and focus on a handful of games based on what you guys choose. :) We’ll see how that pans out! I need to give it a try at some point with my current “Now Playing” section real soon.
That’s enough about games right now. Let’s move on to how my birthday went! It was an awesome three-day weekend! =D The day before my birthday I went with a couple of friends for Epcot’s Food and Wine festival. We got to try out a lot of food samples that were offered (within our budget, of course). I think that I had a much better experience this time around since I had others to share the occasion with. The day of I went to a Halloween furry gathering in Sarasota where I met a couple of folks I’ve known for some time, and it was fun. I did a small art trade while I was there, and it goes to show that I really need to work on drawing more females. Why must they be so difficult to draw? Why?! Always how the hips are. Always! DX Anyway, the day after I spent indoors just watching some football, and it was mostly a relaxing time. As for the presents, I got plenty as you can see here in this picture.
Hmm… I think that about covers everything that’s been going on. :) Now there was something that happened recently that I need to share. As of this update, I found out that I will be full-time status at Disney World on November 1st! I was caught by surprise when I was asking for help on how I can get full-time. I remember going on their website to transfer to other places with hopes of going full-time then. Since people have transferred out of my area, it seemed that my chances of going full-time were high. And so, this just happened. lol I can’t complain! Now I don’t have to worry about picking up hours. ^^ With that, I may be a bit quiet as far as gaming and art updates go.
Speaking of art, I hope to have some ideas drawn up between now and when the new year rolls around which include reference sheets for my characters (they desperately need them) and a commission examples of an idea I really look forward to doing soon. But first, I want to accomplish the Halloween ideas I mentioned earlier. They might be a bit rushed, but I look forward to finishing them real soon. So stay tuned on that!
Anyway, that should do it! Thank you all for reading and to any and all that wished me a happy birthday. I really appreciated them. ^^
Take care, everyone! And have a great rest of the weekend.
Eddie the Wolf signing off!
