I'm kinda free for now, so yeah...
The road for independence is here, as I have to manage things alone from now on. Even my mutt has gone with the family to Sarawak, hope he's happy frolicking in the fields.
Although I gotta say this December has been a crazy month. A good one at that! Cloud is in Smash, Bayonetta too, then Akuma in Tekken 7? This used to be impossible, especially Cloud and Akuma. Nice birthday month for me here! Of course, I do watch other stuff as well. Digimon Adventure tri was one of them, and obviously One-Punch Man. Star Wars was great too. Although I have to say I'm not into hype culture, as I rather surprise myself, so this ones listed are pretty great, not euphoric or something like that. Funny because I actually watched the whole King of Iron Fist Tournament 2015 and Akuma in the announced Tekken: 7 FR was really unexpected for me!
Of course, Comic Fiesta...
It's pretty jam packed, but it's pretty okay. Met back some old friends, got my Yu-Gi-Oh nostalgia back with their booth (but then it's Konami....sshhh!
), and seeing and playing some great stuff. It was great, but I bought only one to none there, since I already have to keep myself busy with a Tensa Zangetsu sword that I bought several years ago (no, I did not bring it there) ant trying to not overspent. It's really packed in there, so I do went out from the Mines Convention Center and walk around the mall once in a while, especially in the arcade.
...and that's the first time I played Tekken 7 LOL! That to me was best game to play in the arcade in my entire life, especially with so many youths looking for alternatives for the packed event. Met new players, sharing game knowledge and passion, and manage to play with good players LOL! Guess my Tekken fundamentals were helping me even though I was not so good with sticks (I'm a pad player). Sure, Tekken is some of my favourite fighting game, and for me to actually managed to play Tekken 7 and beating it (granted the Arcade Mode was easy LOL) was awesome, but seeing the crowd having fun in the arcade and enjoying it with them puts a smile in my face, even when I don't know any of these people. It's great for me, because I can play with beginners and experts alike. And when you have the crowd enjoying the spectacle of your gameplay, it feels amazing (thank the Slow Motion and Rage Art for that!)! Let alone playing someone with an even skill level and the crowd enjoying it! It's a great day to spent time with people you don't know with your favourite game. And watching other people playing with their buddies on other games and looking at them having a fun time with each other was magical for me, even though one or two of them were pretty snobby. This might be one in a lifetime, since the arcade business might be as 'normal' as usual after Comic Fiesta is over. I did not manage to go for the 2nd day though, as I don't want a jammed exit again... Tekken 7 is the only game from 2015 that I played, and this experience is the best that I get from this game.
That took too long huh? Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
