I have to confess that I was a little worried when ordering Idolmaster SP – mostly, that I’d get it, play it for 20 minutes, get frustrated and give up.
Not that I’ve ever done that before.
Anyway, that hasn’t happened yet. It’s not that I’m doing well at it, because I’m not. I’m still a rank “F” idol after playing through 9 weeks of the game, and I just had my first audition that went badly enough that I actually LOST fans.
On the other hand, that gave me motivation enough to start seriously looking for advice on how to play, and I found this post, which was very helpful, and which turned out to be attached to this blog, which is a pretty good read if you’re looking for advice on PSP games, and it gave me a link to this message board, which is full of, well, I’m not sure whether I should be inspired or frightened by how many English-speaking Idolmaster fans there are.
Anyway, to get back to the Kenobi-ism, above, I’ve been exposed to a culture I didn’t know existed, and it feels like I might actually have my feet under me now. Tomorrow morning, at 10:40 AM, I’ll meet Ritsuko for our appointment, and we’ll see how another audition goes.
