Well, some of you have been wondering what I’ve been up to and, really, it’s the usual being inundated with work and getting distracted. As usual, XBox LIVE is a great escape from work. Been getting back into CoD Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops (surprisingly, Black Ops has grown onto me though I still prefer Infinity Ward’s approach, in spite of tons of customization and gameplay options in the Treyarch product) with new and old clanmates from NoF, my gaming clan. Crysis 2 has been fun but BOY is that game frustrating!
Possibly the biggest distraction is the massive Netflix Anime expansion. About two or three months back, Anime was only available on DVD or Blu-Ray mailings. Not so now. Netflix has tons of streaming Anime options including Trigun, Berserk, Rin, Blood+, Bleach, Naruto, and Full Metal Alchemist, to name a “few”.
Rin is particularly interesting. The release date shows as 2008 but the subject matter seems dated, especially if you consider the computer references (128MB RAM 300MB HDD is no longer top of the line, folks). Regardless, it is a fun Anime. It’s a little graphic so, kids, go back to Dragon Ball Z, please.
Rin is about two immortal girls that run a private investigation company. They take on strange cases, battle supernatural beings, and make lots of friends along the way. If nudity is your bag, Rin has that too but the plot is substantial, I promise. The Anime series is beautifully drawn too.
If you need more reasons to procrastinate, check out the new, ever-growing Netflix Anime Instant Play collection. Netflix has stepped things up due to the competition from Amazon, Hulu, and others. If Anime is not your thing, add me on XBox LIVE. Yogizilla is my name there though I’m considering changing to YogizillaNoF to fully rep my clan.
The Anime catch-up has definitely been a time killer for me but, fear not: I am still very much excited to bring you my very first online Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Buster. I got tons of cards I have yet to reveal for myself and you, my AWESOME loyal readers. I’ve been focusing on my Y3B blog but I’ll be switching content back and forth, as well as cross-promoting.
There’s still tons of stuff in the pipelines including new Mundane Chatter v2.0 Podcast Episodes, XBox 360 Hardware Mini-Reviews (just got a Turtle Beach X31 and I LOVE it.. looking to get a Razer Onza TE but they’re hard to come by), and MORE! Leave a comment and let me know what games, Anime, and other fun has been consuming your life – maybe we can join forces and veg together!
