I am not going to be the very best, like no one ever was

I’m about three hours into Pokémon Black “Version 2” and have passed the first gym.

It was a god-damned virtual bloodbath.  I’m not good at this.  On the other hand, the stuff I am fighting now that I am past the first city is significantly higher-level than the highest level stuff I could get to previously, so grinding should be much easier.

Also wow the 3DS bottom screen collects dust like crazy.

Finally, yes, my starter Pokémon is named “Derpy” and my character starts most of her fights by shouting “Go! Derpy!” and it has yet to not make me smirk.

In other news, both TrueTrophies and TrueAchievements had these “My Year on Xbox” / “My Year on Playstation” things where they chew through your Xbox Live / PSN data and spit out lots of data on how much of your life you spent holding a controller.

I’ll ignore most of it and just post the “completions” bits because they show that I have an unhealthy attraction to anime rhythm games.

I did, in fact, take seven years to get the Assassin’s Creed II platinum.  It had a missable trophy that galled me for a long time until I finally broke down and bought one of the DLC missions solely so I could get the trophy without replaying the entire game.
