It’s Halloween week and somehow October has blown right past us. It has for me at least. A lot has been going on this month. Among the things that would be keeping me busy are my video game challenges. Why else would I do them in the first place? It’s time for another progress report to close out the month. This month’s challenge is a redux edition, except I’d say this challenge has been more trick than treat.
The conclusion to the first season of the uncut Sailor Moon aired last Monday through streaming services Hulu and Neon Alley. Being able to see the last two episodes fully intact and how it should have aired in North America when Sailor Moon first burst onto the scene back in the ’90s was what I have been waiting for my whole life. I wasn’t disappointed either and I found myself deeply affected by the whole viewing experience. Fair warning, the following post will contain spoilers. If you’re interested in watching the series or haven’t seen the episodes, I suggest reading this afterwards.
Every October is the one month New York City becomes geek mecca when Comic Con comes rolling into town. It’s the social event of the year for all geeks to unite and show their passion for their favorite TV show, comics, or video games. This is also the best place for people watching, as hard core cosplayers come out from all over to either show off their creations or just dress up for fun. And just like previous years, I have been fortunate enough to attend New York Comic Con this past weekend at the Jacob Javits Center once again.
A brand new month brings forth a new video game challenge. Well, seeing as it’s October, it also means Halloween is around the corner but we’re not talking about that at all. October does bring me one step closer to Dragon Age: Inquisition! It’s coming in November, people. So EXCITED!
I’ve given a lot of thought on how to approach this month’s challenge. Do I start a new game again or go back to a game I failed to finish the first time I took the challenge? Considering the look and shape of my video game challenges will change once Dragon Age is out next month, I decided to go back to basics and do another game redux.
