I haven’t been posting much because there has been a lot going on professionally and personally.
I’ve been having a blast with my Normal Classic file on Fire Emblem: Awakening. Still love this game. tRPG IS my genre, hands down.
Professionally, I’m in the process of writing a grant to create a game for my classroom that focuses on technology integration and global climate change. I’ve been doing writing and re-writing and that takes time and mental focus. I have a strong concept that I’m working off of. Thanks to my colleagues at school and Jon, Jack and DJ for offering additional very useful feedback. I’ll update the progress as I go, but don’t want to say much more so that I can work on my idea without fear of malevolent outside interference.
On the pencil front, I got a good deal on eBay and a delicious red Pilot S20 is on the way. I will do a video review of that one, because there actually no video reviews of the S20 in English that I can find! Also, Peter from France has sent me another Faber-Castell. Thanks in advance to him!
As a Platinum Club Nintendo Member again this year, I got to choose a reward. I was excited to see I could get a full release game for free! The game was first released in 2010 on Wii and is based upon the hugely popular Donkey Kong Country series that started on Super Nintendo and continued with Donkey Kong 64 in 1999. Here are my impressions!
