Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Professional Gamer. This week I've been on the giving and the receiving end of media sharing. But have also found myself a bit preoccupied during most of the evenings. I managed to find some time to enjoy myself, so read on to find out what I did.
Watching: This week I only was home for one evening where I could watch some television. And that time was spent sharing Steven Universe with some friends. I have to say, I miss getting to watch something new to me at times, but I also really love the feeling of sharing something new with a friend.
Playing: This was another week where almost all of my video gaming time was spent on Guild Wars 2. However, I am now also working to get a tabletop RPG ready for my friends. I ran a long term game using the D&D 4th Edition rules. My group (and me) got a little tired of how long combat tended to take in that system, and have opted to try continuing the story using the Pathfinder rules. But, I haven't run a game in that system yet, so I'll be learning the rules a bit as we go along.
Reading: I spent my reading time this week with Volume 11 of Pretty Guardian: Sailor Moon, and have now started into the "Stars" arc. After the fun and uplifting story of the "Dark Moon" arc, this one has been rather tough. Warning: spoilers on a 10 year old series ahead. Momoro's death in the first chapter is really rough. Especially the way that Usagi blocks it out. If she had confronted this event dead on, I feel like things would seem less tragic. But, now it just feels like a scab that can't be left alone. I've got to hurry my way through the rest of the story though. All of the library books are due back next week and I have run out of renewals!
That's all I've got for this week. I'm very close to releasing some new podcast episodes featuring our interviews from Nan Desu Kan 2015. Look for those to start appearing this week. Have a great week and game on!
