Good evening, everyone. Hope you are all well. Me? I’m hanging in here.
Welp, I didn’t finish Anubai chapter 23 this week. I apologized for that on Friday, though, so I’m not going to do it again. I have plans, though, oh do I have plans… 😛
Anyway, I’ve sunk some hours into ROTTR, and as expected I’m having fun. So I’ll be writing a post about that tomorrow. I’m being consistent with the wrong thing, but meh. At least it’s writing.
I also have been playing the hell out of Super Mario Odyssey, since its much easier to find opportunities to play it. I’m not going to write about it, though, so I’ll just say here: I’ve got every listed power moon in every kingdom except:
- 100 Jump rope record (Tricky and boring)
- 100 Beach volley ball record (tricky and even more boring than (1))
- [Redacted for spoiler, but the very final final challenge] (Fun, tricky, and unforgiving of error)
I will, eventually, get number 3, since practice will eventually pay off. Probably. But 1 and 2 are so boring, I don’t know if I will bother… I’m still missing a couple hats, though. I suspect I’ll get one for completing 3, but… I really don’t want to do the jump rope and beach volleyball challenges, so if that’s a requirement, I might not get all the hats… ;_;
Yeah, I could just look it up, but that’s boring. 😛
Well, that’s all for now. Supposedly we’ve got a major snowstorm moving in tonight, so that should be interesting. It will be even more interesting for my son, who has to walk to school through it. Poor boy. ^^;
And as thanks for reading, here’s a little teaser from near the end of Chapter 23 of the Anubai Hero:
The fat man coughed, spitting up more blood which also disappeared before it could hit the floor, and spoke. “Forgive my… sudden intrusion… I’m afraid that I don’t have time… for anything subtle…” He coughed again. “Ahhh… I haven’t felt this pain… in a long… long time… I guess… I feel responsible… this time…”
The Weaver gestured, and two of her spiders leapt at the intruder again, with as little effect as the first time. The fat man didn’t even seem to notice, as he continued speaking. “I’m… not allowed… to interfere… to intervene this far… is fairly costly…” He laughed, a low, self-deprecating sound. “This too… is Karma…
“I bring you… warning… This place… this construct… your Underworks… will collapse soon… releasing… the ancient evil… sealed within… You have no idea… it’s worse than you could expect… You need to… run…”
The fat man coughed again, then suddenly stood up straight. He spoke normally for the first time, sounding almost conversational as he said, “Ah. It seems this is as far as I go. A pity; I would have liked to see how it ended–”
Sun Mia shrieked as a sudden gush of blood spurted from the fat man’s body, directly from his heart. He had a twisted smile on his face as he collapsed backwards. Only Dolgo Mehek, who had been standing closer than the others, caught his last words as he fell: “Seek safety in the Abyss.”
But before the fat man’s body hit the floor, it had vanished as abruptly as it had appeared, leaving not so much as a bloodstain behind.
Have a good week, everyone, and stop by tomorrow for my examination of Rise of the Tomb Raider! 😀
