Hi. I’m currently en route from Tokyo (for TGS) to London (for EGX). I decided to save my company about $600 and not make the trip trans-Eurasia but rather by connecting in Los Angeles, which — midway through the trip — I can safely say was one of the dumbest things I’ve ever done. I left Tokyo at 6 p.m. Wednesday, landed in L.A. at 11 a.m. Wednesday, and will arrive in London around noon Thursday. I have no idea how I’m going to go about writing down today’s expenses. YES I DID NEED TO EAT FIVE MEALS ON THE 24TH OK
I got about an hour of sleep on the first leg of the flight, so I’m actually in a terrible vegetative state right now. I could sleep at the LAX terminal, but that would involve making bodily contact with either the seats or the floor at LAX, which… yuck. And knowing my luck I’d sleep through boarding.
In meantime, here is all the stuff I wrote about at TGS. I have quite a few more interviews to turn into features, but my semi-comatose state is not the optimal time for that.
- Zodiac, a fairly promising RPG
- Final Fantasy Type 0 HD
- Final Fantasy Explorers
- Final Fantasy XV (there was a lot of Final Fantasy, OK?)
- Bravely Second
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
- The New 3DS
- Earth Defense Force 4.1
- Everyone in Japan is playing Smash Bros.
- In memoriam, Doug Smith
Anyway, that’s as much writing as I can handle at the moment. I guess I am going to flirt with ebola and try napping here. If I die from this decision, know that I love you all.
