I want to write that I will update my blog more often this year… But let’s not fool anyone. It probably won’t happen. But one can wish!
I spend my Christmas holiday together with my family at my parents’ place and then some at Akke’s parents. Yummy food and cozy atmosphere it was!
After Christmas we took the train northeast to our best friends (GamingGrannar) where we played around for a couple of days. We also celebrated New Year’s there with dinner, games and party. A perfect New Year’s! Thanks to EKKen I also had a very nice hairstyle during New Year’s Eve, I’m very grateful for that!
Everytime we go to our friends there we try to finish at least one game and this time I wished for it to be StarTropics. I have wonderful memories of playing this adventure game with my brother and sister, and I still regard it as one of my absolute favourites on the 8-bit. After finishing it we started playing the sequel and it looks promising. The gameplay is quite different comparing to its predecessor, not necessarily in a bad way though. Some things I like better, others I don’t. But it’s a well-made sequel, can’t argue with that.
We also did other stuff during December: Me and Akke went to “Christmas at Liseberg” (Liseberg is a famous amusement park in Sweden) and had a really nice time. It’s really beautiful there during the evening, with lots of small lights.
In addition we had a small party with Akke’s sister, colleagues and other friends on one of the days between Chistmas and New Year’s. And the day after we went to my sister’s place to celebrate her husband’s birthday. So yes, it was a lot of fun events this past month!
