Well today is day 2 of "The Program", and while I haven't done my yoga yet, I have been using the stationary bike for two days in a row. I also have managed not to scratch my arm, which I discussed last time. Overall, I'm doing good so far. In a week I'm going to weigh myself and see what happens.
So it was back to Final Fantasy X yesterday but I didn't play that much, just spent some time going through the sphere grid and leveling up my characters. I'm stuck in Ronso land, and the monsters are frustrating so I've died a couple times. But next time I'm gonna plow through it, I swear. I have been playing a bunch of Etrian Odyssey 4 as well... that's such a chill game.
My friend was talking on Twitter the other day about the Atari gaming crash of the early 80s. A lot of people attribute this to E.T. but my friend disagreed, explaining that Atari had overestimated the demand for their products (E.T. was part of this of course), and when this demand never happened, Atari's loans dried up, and everything fell to pieces. This makes sense, and the old E.T. myth sounded a little too much like a myth anyway. I don't think we're in danger of this happening again. My father quoted something like 16 billion dollars in video game sales last year, and that's sort of insane. In addition, I don't believe this is the last console generation. I don't think consoles are going anywhere.
Well, as we all know, today is Bloodborne day. For those of you playing it already, I salute you. For the rest of us, who have no balls, it's just a normal day. I wonder if my brother will get it today, or if he has the will to wait. I'm leaning towards him getting it -- he loves video games, and he loves "Souls". He deserves some fun, to be honest. He's been a little grump lately.
