"Sure enough, CT is inside the hut, standing, in the shadows, next to the unlit fireplace. And the shack is in darkness. And there's a dirty-looking bed in the corner. Christ on a cracker, even Michael Jackson handing out candy outside a school playground couldn't scream 'PEDO!!!' louder than this scenario."

Oblivion RR Part 6 — Silent Cyrodiil

Once again, I made it through the night without dying. I didn’t sleep well, obviously — I can’t imagine most people would enjoy the damp coldness, not to mention that dusty old smell. But I slept a lot better than I thought I would. I was just so tired from all the previous day’s killing. I probably should have taken a personal day rather than charging right into a dungeon, but…well, I don’t really have a good excuse. And I know it was stupid to sleep in those ruins, where more bandits could have shown up, or even worse things from the tombs. I don’t really have an excuse for that either, except that I was just so tired. I was probably safer inside the ruins than out in the open where I could have been eaten by a bear. Besides, nothing horrible happened.

I’m a fairly new adventurer, but I’m going to have to get used to all this fighting and sleeping in dungeons and stuff, diary. There’s really no way around it.

It’s like I have my own Sphere Recorder Bob to take photos of my adventures now!

I trekked back to the Imperial City to sell the stuff I had collected. Naturally, it was raining again. There’s nothing like running around in soggy fur and leather armor. I’m sure Squally would know all about the perils of that particular material combination. I had the bandits to thank for the fur helmet, gauntlets, and greaves. I know, I’m really fearsome. But at least my head is protected now.

I sold my stuff to Jensine, just because I wanted more money from her. I may have been able to haggle a better price elsewhere, but honestly, I just wasn’t in the mood to visit every store in the vicinity and compare prices. Even so, just selling the poor quality weapons and armor I found in the ruins earned me much more than 100 Gold. Suck it, Jensine.

After another back-and-forth journey from the ruins to the Imperial City to sell merchandise I couldn’t carry the first time around, I realized I didn’t feel like doing that a third time. No, it was time for me to face my fears and just explore the damn tombs already. Surely there must be a valuable treasure lurking down there. That’s the way it always goes, right?

Well, the tombs were not all that creepy. Not at first, anyway. I mean, they were creepy, but not in the “rotting zombies humping my head” kind of way. I kept expecting something to jump out at me, but nothing did. There was only some dumbass furry bandit skulking about. A single fireball took care of him. Not scary.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Part 10

Whooooooooooooop!!! Happy New Year! I am FINALLY done with the latest Phoenix Wright recap! There is only one more left to go, but I don’t have to write it! Fuck yeah!

So this one was brutal, thanks to everyone being as annoying as possible, not to mention a video that was terrible in every way. But I persevered so you all could have your gay lawyer fix. I hope it was worth it.

A few quick updates

Hello, everyone. I’m just writing a quick post to let you know a few things that are going on.

I mentioned something way back in the site anniversary update about a super awesome plan for this coming year, which is technically not over until 2/17/2014. So I still have a couple of months! The plan is to completely update the site, getting rid of the old shitty HTML, and converting everything over to WordPress. This will make it much, much easier to maintain. But it’s going to take a long time to do all the WordPress coding, site design, and recap conversion.

I’m currently working on the next Phoenix Wright recap, which is about 80% done. I’m hoping to finish it by Christmas. Once I post it, I’m going to concentrate on the site update for a while. So that I’m not totally slacking on actual content during that time, I’ve decided to revive the Recapper Roleplay posts, which are way less time consuming than the crazy long recaps I normally write. I know Oblivion is super old now — even Skyrim is two years old! — but I actually think the various guild quests are more entertaining in Oblivion than in Skyrim so I want to continue it. Maybe I will recapper roleplay both! No promises.

Finally, I am going to update WordPress to the latest version. Hopefully I won’t ruin everything! Update: Done!

Don’t miss it, baby.

So, after a heartstopping masterclass in trolling, Atlus finally announced Persona 5 at the end of a live stream today.

But, I’m ashamed to say, I’m kind of more excited about this at the moment. Yu’s got the moves.

Am I hallucinating due to the after-effects of my latest P4 recap, or is this actually happening?
