Testing 1, 2! Testing, testing! Is this thing on?
Howdy everyone! It most certainly has been awhile, yeah? I don’t have much of an excuse for my absence of any updates of late besides having not much of a drive of typing something up. This is probably why I have put off on ever doing video blogs on YouTube.
Let’s get to it! The games! You know I love video games! Overwatch has practically taken over for me especially with the new event, Overwatch: Uprising, taking place at this time. And with special events come skins and other goodies for the heroes in the game. With that, I’m slowly getting back into playing with other friends that do have the game. But still, I tend to just play with random people with the mindset that it’s myself against computer-controlled characters (yes, I know I’m playing online with others).
And when I have the chance I do get around to playing Yakuza 5. This was the series I had hoped to have finished last year, but I was never able to. I’m still playing it bit-by-bit, and it’s become my favorite of the series! At this time, I’m playing as the ex-baseball player Shinada, and I came across a second trainer for him. He’s immediately become a new favorite character to play as, and it was real refreshing to get to his chapter after playing Haruka and Akiyama in the previous one. As much fun as I had with those two, I kind of felt they overstayed there welcome. Then again, I’m that rare breed that will attempt at completing any and all side stories for the games. lol Still, I look forward to finishing that game before moving onto something else.
The year before I focused mostly on the PS2 GTA games, and last year it was all about the Yakuza series. This year I may attempt at focusing on Mass Effect 2 and 3 after I obtain any and all DLCs that were not included in the trilogy set I got for the PS3. They’re sitting in my shopping cart on PSN with a total rounding about at $57. I’m not too thrilled about the cost, but it’s something I will bite the bullet if I want to get the full Mass Effect experience. It’s a good thing I finished the first game as I had forgotten just how slow it was when I played it the first time on PC. I can’t wait to get to playing Mass Effect 2 again though. That one was a much improved game over its predecessor.
I know there will be a few friends of mine that will get after me to play Yakuza 0 as soon as I finish Y5. I will! Shoot, I plan on pre-ordering Yakuza: Kiwami soon especially for that steel bookcase. A nice little break will do after I finish Y5, and I’m just thinking what else I can do once my Mass Effect playthroughs are done. Maybe the God of War saga I have for PS3? I did finish the first game after all. Or maybe I’ll settle for smaller games I have digitally downloaded just to get them out of the way. That is a thought. And once I get into the swing of things with games, I will look into tackling some RPGs. Aah, the never-ending struggle that is RPGs. After seeing Game Sack’s episodes on RPGs, I really want to get into the Phantasy Star series since I do have them via Sonic’s Genesis Collection. But first, I’ll focus on what I have of interest and work my way through the smaller games.
Up next is art. For those that follow me either on Twitter or Fur Affinity will know that I have changed gears as far as the content I want to post. Now I do plan on using my original FA page especially for pics I’ve taken and art I’ve commissioned from conventions, but I have started posting new content on a new account. What is it? Well, you’ll just have to look for it. 😉 Yeah, that isn’t fair of me to do that, huh? The reason for this is I want to start anew and really work my way up in gaining recognition. I have to say it hasn’t been easy gaining some followers, but I will keep at it! I guess cyberpunk just isn’t much of a thing for others. lol Still, it has been a nice change of pace from drawing Speedo and bikini pinups. That doesn’t mean I won’t stop drawing beach related things. I just want to go for more detailed oriented pieces with some story to go with them. For those that have found it, awesome! I thank you for the continued support! ^^ For everyone else, happy hunting!
That should wrap it up! As always I thank you for taking the time in reading this, and I hope everyone is doing well at this time!
Take care now! Eddie Santiago signing off!
