Journal: Jan. 2, 2013

Oops I realized I said my last journal entry was for January 2nd but THIS one is for what happened on Jan. 2.

After trying to talk myself out of it I finally got up at my normal time of 6:00. I missed sleeping in. I also got back on the good exercise and healthy eating wagon, as expected it was hard to wean myself off of all those holiday treats 😛 I also got a little bit of work done – work is nice and simple right now so it’s a nice way to slowly get back into that groove too. Oh yeah, and I got started on that FF7 LP I was watching – I just got to the part with the cut scene about Aeris’ mom’s back story and how her foster mom’s husband died in the war. I always liked that tiny little story.

Speaking of work, the other day at the New Year’s party I met a guy who was talking about the Witchblade anime and I was like, “Hey, I worked on that!” It’s neat to be able to say that these days – for the last many years I lived around old smelly people who barely even know that Japan exists, much less know about anime.

Oh yeah, I also tried out the new protein I ordered, and holy moly it’s much better than the usual crap I get. It’s a tiny bit more expensive but I recently got Amazon Prime, so the shipping’s free, which is a big plus.

And speaking of Amazon, the other day I also decided to go through my wishlist and saw a couple books on there that were really cheap and I could get free shipping on. Darn you Amazon, your marketing ploys work too well! Anyway, the books arrived and I have yet to read them, but hopefully they’ll teach me a few things about graphic design and layout and online graphic design stuff. Although it appears one of them was written in 2001 and features Netscape Navigator screenshots of web pages, so that one might not be so helpful after all, hmm.


Oh, the other day I got a 3DS finally, despite not really having time to play games. I’ll probably stick to short, downloadable games rather than big, time-consuming retail releases. Plus very few of the retail games interest me at all. If you’ve got a 3DS and wanna add me as a friend for whatever reason (I honestly don’t even know what being someone’s friend on it does) my code is:


Let me know your code in the comments and I’ll add you back!

    My FC is: 5026 – 4744 – 4088

    I’m just getting as many FCs I can count. Thanks.

    If I had a 3DS I would definitely play Virtue’s Last Reward.

    Why not?

    Mine is 4210-4483-4776

    I believe these are the advantages of having friends:

    1. You can see what other friends are online (3DS is open and connected to the Internet) and what they are playing (unless they turn off that feature). You can also set a favorite game.

    2. You can send messages with Swapnote between friends.

    3. If a friend is playing a game with Internet multiplayer and you also have the game, you can invite them to play with you, similar to Steam. Example: Mario Kart 7.

    Congratulations on a new video game system!

    If you have Swapnote, you can exchange handwritten messages and 3DS camera photos with your 3DS friends. I can send you the Legend of Zelda NES stationary once we’re mutually friended. I’m 4596-9795-0818 .

    (If you’re looking to buy a download game, I highly recommend Pushmo. It may not be what you’re looking for, though – each level is fairly bite-size, but there are a lot of them and plenty of user-created levels too. It took me months to beat the main game!

    Never hurts to have more friends.
    My FC is 0103-9366-3506

  6. Olivia says:

    Others have extolled the benefits of 3DS friends, so I’ll just leave my FC and say that I’m a big fan of Legends of Localization and EB Central. Thanks for all the awesome work you do! 2492-4186-3109

    Hey Tomato! My 3DS friend code is 1977-0177-4791. Also, if more bite-sized eShop games are what you’ll mostly be interested in, Denpa Men is a must! It’s a fun little RPG you can play a little bit at a time, and the method of getting new party members is quite awesome: you literally catch them with your 3DS camera! Pretty fun! And both Pushmo and Crashmo are worth looking into if you like puzzles.

    • skyrunner14 says:

      Also, definitely get Swapnote. Everyone on your friend list can send you messages, and you can send messages back! It’s always great to be surprised by a funny note.

  8. Darien says:

    I’m 1032-1328-0764, though that’ll actually show up as my wife, since it’s actually her system.

  9. Hey Mato, remember me? If you wanna be my friend, my code is 3050-7577-9658. I only have a small group of close friends from this one website registered, but i’d like to add you.

    • Mato says:

      I can’t forget you, you’re too awesome!

      I just added you, so now when my 3DS gets the flu your 3DS will get it too

      Whoa that’s almost a poem

  10. Also, it’s cool that you’re interested in Graphic Design. Though it took me a while to find a successful major in college, in the end i’m glad i finally went with graphics. It’s definitely a fun field.

    Just got a 3DS today and don’t know know anyone else who owns one.

    Been following you on Twitter and reading about your video game translation resarch, feel free to add me if you wish, or not if you don’t 🙂
