Well, two actually. I've started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I've begun to watch Japanese dramas. I've been watching enough to make it a separate category in my opinions! I've labeled it Asian Drama, in case I get into korean stuff later... ;)
Still have the "media list" from last year to post, I'll save that for next month
Wow, this is close, my clock is now 23:45 on the last november day, just in time for this months post. Didn't have to cheat this time!
So, big change on the frontpage. Now each blog post is in its own frame which makes it much easier to see where one post ends and another begins. Also added support for posting opinions to the front page. Not all opinions will be on the frontpage, only the ones that has a bit of writing in them will be published, to show them off a bit more.
I'm not used to writing reviews yet, last time I did something like that was back in college, so bear with me if they suck in the beginning. Hopefully it will get better!
Okay, time up, clock is now 23:57, better post it.
I've just updated the opinion system a lot! First of all: The poll is removed from the frontpage and replaced with a new box called 'Latest Opinions'. It displays the five most recent opinions added, and a link to each one.
Last and not least, I've also added support for longer comments in each opinion, as demonstrated by my opinion on Yui Makinos latest album, Holography.
I'm also working on a few new wallpapers but they are still work in progress, hopefully something will be done in the next month.
I've been working hard on my opinions since last time. I now have a total of 535 items in six categories, as well as a nicer overview page with some graphs and stats. The 'games' category is finished, all the games have an image, a rating as well as a short comment. 'Anime' and 'TV' have images and ratings on all items, but still missing a lot of comments. 'Books' and 'movies' are still missing a lot of images, but they have ratings.
Also been playing a new game, 'The Witcher 2'. So far I'm enjoying myself quite a bit. It's a bit more hack n' slash compared to dragon age, but the story seems nice. It's not a forgiving game though, I've probably died close to 50 times already and I'm only playing normal! Here's a screen from a boss in chapter one:
I mentioned in the last post that I was looking for a place to catalog the books I read, kind of like what I have for anime over at anidb. I wasn't happy with the alternatives I found, so I made my own place to rate and comment on stuff I watch/read/play etc.. So here it is:
Here's a preview if you don't want to head over there just yet:
It's still a work in progress. I have some new features to add as well as more content, stay tuned
