My Birthday Weekend

Birthday Cake

My Birthday week has been pretty good.

On Friday I played some games with my brother. We completed the original Donkey Kong Country game as a tag team. I still need to get used to the original Snes controller as I died quite a lot! We’re getting closer to completing the Mario 3D World. I find that level mega hard.

On Friday I spent most of the time just chilling and writing down future creative ideas whenever they came into my head. I spent most of the evening watching Captain America: Winter Soldier with my family. To me, you can’t beat a good evening if it’s filled with a Marvel film. I got a lot of nice presents and cards too. I got Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea from my brother. I got Dungeon Girls manga, Avengers: Age of Ultron T-Shirt and Non Non Biyori art book from my parents and swell pair of jogging pants from my sister. Plus, some cash from my relatives.
The icing on the cake, pun intended, was that my sister made me a lovely birthday cake. It was Mario complete with toadstools, pipes, coin bricks, clouds, piranhas and stars.

The following morning I booked a slot to go Segway at the nearest forest (which is still pretty far from home!) It was my treat for my family. It was really good fun. I was slightly anxious as there were 14 available spaces and when I checked there were 5 left and that means that there were going to be a lot of people attending.

We arrived three minutes before our time slot so it was a bit of a rush. We all walked. Then, we power walked. Then, we lightly jogged… five minutes late and we basically ran for it. XD We parked in a different car park from last time and we were not familiar with the terrain of this car park. Haha. The events never usually start on time but being late was not ideal for anyone, especially for me. I arrived at a good time and luckily the Segway was still on

It was even better as my family were the only ones who took part in the actual session! All the strangers who have booked have either cancelled or didn’t bother to show. It was like a personal tutorial for everyone in the family. We all had fun and it was just as good as the previous time that I went.

I am very tired now so I will probably take this opportunity to spend the next few days to chill out. I haven’t had much sleep as I’ve been too busy having fun.

Thanks for Reading. =)

Namaste.^^/

Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit Game Review

Senran Kagura Bon Appetit

Bonjour.^^/

I decided to use some French Phrases here and there just for the sake of it. The title of this review did not influence my decision at all… honest!

  1. REVIEW

WARNING: I MAY GIVE SPOILERS AWAY

This is my kind of game- light-hearted and fun.

This game is in the style of StepMania. I’m not too bad at StepMania but I can only do easy levels and perhaps the medium levels at a push. I can listen to the beat and react but it appears that my fingers don’t have that kind of rhythm. Haha. I’m not too bad at waltz or ballroom and I am in time with the beat but I’m not so good when it comes to getting into the rhythm on the keyboards or console.

I laughed quite a lot at Hanzou’s [the character] introduction. He implied that the task was something serious but it turned out that he was just having a laugh.

I like how all the girls have their individual routes. My personal favourite is Ikaruga. I’ve completed her easy stage quite a few times and I just managed to complete her medium stage. I do like Yomi’s music though, I think out of all the personal music themes Yomi’s is probably my favourite. In character customisations you can change their appearance if you want. I didn’t change anything but I did add cat eats and tails as bonus accessories on both Yomi and Ikaruga. =) There is a lot of skin exposure as well, especially when they’re decorated with fruit and cream. Haha. They’re all really cute. =)

It came as a surprise to see Homura and co in the Crimson Squad. Last I checked they were part of the Hebi School Academy, but yet, it seems like Hebi School Academy have completely new students. I feel like I’ve missed something or something has happened and I haven’t seen yet. Perhaps it’s going to be revealed at the end of the 3DS game? Or perhaps it’s going to be revealed in Volume 3 of the manga?

I’m not the best gamer but I’m doing ok so far. I completed the routes of the girls from Hanzou academy and the Crimson Squad. I completed Yumi’s route and I think she’s very cute. All anime girls are cute really so the charm for me is about the personality and demeanour. So far I see I think Yumi is a lovely character. =)  I’m not sure if I’ll earn any more trophies but I do know that I’m enjoying the game so it doesn’t matter. =)

THANKS FOR READING

Ikaruga

I’m just starting to play Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus. So far I’m probably enjoying it more than the 3DS version. I think it’s because I feel that there’s more to this version then the 3DS. Perhaps it’s because it’s more like a 3D platform like Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm and Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. Speaking of Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, I slightly lost motivation to play that for a while. I’m more or less playing the game now just to earn more trophies. That and I need to keep on reading long manuals on how to upgrade my armour and beat the Child of Disaster etc. Haha. I still like the music and watching Escha twirl. =)

I’m looking forward to the Alchemists of the Dusk Sea. I think that’s going to be a lot of fun to play. =)

Merci Beaucoup. ^^/
