This was supposed to be posted a few days ago, but I forgot to publish it. So some stuff may be out of date 😉
It’s been a productive week.
I’ve picked up some new shelves from Ikea, which freed up a lot more space for my figures. While I was at it, I ended up rearranging my entire room, and wow…what a difference it makes.
First, I can now move around my room more freely, it looks more organized and less clustered and cluttered as it did before, and my desk area is now more open, so I don’t feel claustrophobic just sitting in front of my computer. Heck, even my Oculus Rift detects the new changes as an “Optimal Play Environment” when setting up the VR boundaries.
I still have much to do: Dust and wipe my shelves (also involves cleaning my dusty figures), clean out my closet, sort more figures, and donate a bunch of stuff to the Goodwill. With that, my room is going to require a lot of maintenance, so I plan on cleaning one portion of my shelves each week so it’s not completly overwhelming as it is currently.
I also might pick up another identical Ikea shelf to replace my glass shelf and give a sense of uniformity to my room.
Apart from that, Monster Hunter World should be on my doorstep today. I’ve been playing a lot of Monster Hunter Stories on my 3DS, and while it’s a charming game, it’s clearly tailored for Pokemon players. Still, I’m enjoying it a lot. Also got Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 on sale. I’m looking forward to playing it with my sister whenever she drops by.
Been playing Fire Emblem Warriors on the Switch and some Train Simulator on the PC. So far Train Sim is my go-to game for relaxation. While Truck Simulator and Flight Simulator can be relaxing; it involves setting up my controllers, my VR headset, updating mods, and (especially for Flight Sims) a lot of pre-planning before I even start them.
So it’s best to reserve most of my sims for the weekend. Train Sim on the other hand requires no setup, just pick a route, a train, a scenario, pop in some background music, and out I go. It gets a lot of flak though on Steam (understandably) for it’s outragous prices on routes and locos, but given I can spend something like 15 hours completing every scenario for a particular route, I think some of the addons are well worth it (when they are on sale at least), especially the Steven’s Pass route that goes from Mulkiteo to Wenatchee.
I’m watching Fate/Stay Night. It’s a good anime so far, although it’s a bit of a departure from the more lighthearted animes I’ve watched. I absolutely love Saber though, I will be on the lookout for a cool Saber figure for my collection.
