Some awesome games are released this year and I’m especially looking forward to Mass Effect 3 and Bioshock Infinite (no surprises there?). I probably won’t have time to play ME3 right after the release though since I’m aiming for a bachelor’s degree in computer science this spring/summer. I’m a bit nervous about all this!
I have also started to plan for my return to Japan next spring (2013). I’m looking forward to it A LOT but I have yet to decide if I’m going to Gifu, Osaka or Tokyo. I’ve already been in Tokyo for half a year so it’ll probably be Osaka or Gifu but it mostly depend on the selection of schools available. It’s also a matter of expenses so I have to think thoroughly about all this! Totally different cities too. xD
But enough of that for now. I completed Illusion of Gaia yesterday and I really did enjoy it but there were some great disappointments. First of all; the story is messed up and mostly due to some of the characters’ actions. The plot itself has potential but the “execution” of the story is close to horrendous. Secondly, the soundtrack is not even near Soul Blazer’s (which I think has one of the best soundtracks ever made). I don’t care about the story that much, the soundtrack was the big blow for me with one memorable song at the most (yes, music in games is something I tend to prioritize). The gameplay anyway, is really enjoyable and definitely Illusion of Gaia’s highlight.
With that off my chest I will now try to finish my AI report! Yep, it’s not finished yet… But I’m getting there!
