Review - Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin

Wow, how long has it been since I've posted anything on this blog? Over a year? It feels like a lot has happened since I've stopped regularly blogging, but it really didn't. I've been busy working 6 days a week, 9 hours a day for most of the past 3 years now, leaving me very little time to enjoy anything else in life. During what free time I did have though, half of it was spent playing Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin with my friends, and here is my review for the game.
Keep in mind that this is my first Dark Souls game and I have very little knowledge about Dark Souls I or the original Dark Souls II. With that said, let's get down to business.

New Power, New Opportunities

It's been... well, even longer than last time since I've posted here. My life situation is still the same, work practically 9 hours a day, 6 days a week. Don't have much time to update this site ... well, at all, considering it's been over a year since I've posted. I certainly do miss writing things, like my opinions on video games and talking about my experiences in general.

I did buy myself a new computer during Black Friday since Pugyuu, my laptop, hasn't been running as smoothly as it used to. Meet Pal-D879 Kai. It's a desktop, mainly because I wanted the ability to be able to upgrade components in the future when my specs fall below the standard specs for new games. At the same time, I wanted to get the best specs for what reasonable prices were available at the time. Chances are, I won't be needing any upgrades for several years considering the specs I've chosen for Pal.

Here are Pal's detailed specs that I've bought from iBuyPower, including the many free upgrades that I got during their Black Friday sale.

Life -

It's been a while since I made a post on here, mostly due to how much more work has been demanding of my time than ever before. I am still working on Project X Zone, although I have started Phoenix Wright 5 when it was released since then. I really can't seem to find the time to even finish these games, let alone blog about them like I used to...

I hate the idea of having to abandon this blog, but with both lack of time and the lack of content to put on here due to not having enough time to find and/or make content, I don't have much of a choice at the moment. It sucks. It feels like I can't even have a social life. I haven't been able to see any of my friends from my hometown since I moved back to NJ.

Here I am, wasting away my time at work on my birthday, reminiscing about the time when Firion and I met 3 years ago, and the time we spent together. The life I had then and now are so different... Sure, things in Florida wasn't ALL good, but my hopes of a better life with a better paying job... Well, considering the time I spend at work, I don't even know whether if this is truly a "better paying job" at all. What good is a bigger pay if you don't have the time to enjoy them? I just don't understand the work-a-holic mindset, I guess...

Well, I just wanted to let you all know I haven't completely abandoned the blog, but due to my new life, I won't be able to update the blog as frequently as I had promised.

NY Comic Con 2013!

Long story short, Vicki is here to visit for the week, and as it turns out, the week she planned to visit me also happened to be when Comic Con was going on. So... why not go to Comic Con together? So we did, for Friday, since Saturday and Sunday were all sold out when I looked.

Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses

I went to the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses on August 10th, at the NJ Performing Arts Center, of course with my 3DS in hand, ready to play in the StreetPass Mii Plaza before the concert started. There were certainly plenty of people there, with a good 50% or possibly more with their 3DSes out, especially while I was waiting in line to get myself a poster and t-shirt combo for $25. I found out that there were 3 puzzles that I wasn't aware of in Puzzle Swap; Nintendo Starlets, New SUPER MARIO BROS. U + New SUPER LUIGI U, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Not sure how I missed out on the announcements for these...

Journal of a Busy Person. Boring stuff.

Well, it turns out that this work schedule is too much for me to keep up with the blog. It's unfortunate, but I hardly have the free time to plan a post in an environment where I can think without distractions. I wish someone would either get some better taste in music or learn to use headphones... Instead, I have implemented Raptr and my Twitter feed on the side as a pseudo-update to the site. It isn't much, but at least there will be something new to see on the site until I finish moving to the new house.

Also, I have to say, Steam's Summer Sale this year was pretty neat, but I ended up only buying 3 games and a soundtrack. Regardless, I was able to complete the badge via collecting all the Trading Cards for the Summer Sale. I have to say, it's a neat system, and I'm pretty interested in collecting more cards now. There's a good chance that you'll be seeing games that gives cards in my Raptr feed for a while because of it.

Speaking of trading cards, I'm surprised to see that my Dark Summoner Monster Giveaway isn't taking off. I've only given out 3 monsters so far. The previous three giveaways I did were a success, but things have changed. I also want to know why Dark Summoner wants to limit our trades with Trade Tickets or whatever. I may not be able to do any more giveaways if gifting monsters continues to cost tickets to do.

That's all I can post here for now, and I'd like to do a progress report on my games again, since I haven't done one in forever. I feel the need to talk about Project X Zone some, and all these Steam games that I'll be playing will have some details I'm sure.
