Kupowered's 501st Post
There's a little bitty something about Kupowered that I didn't really think about when I started up last night's Review of Resistance: Burning Skies, and in fact, I didn't really realize it for a little bit afterwards. That thing is that yesterday's post here was the 500th post made in this blog. And it's not really since the last number special that I've done one of these and I don't really want to repeat myself, but daaaaamn. Unfortunately, there is no movie out there titled '500' that I have seen, so this might be a little bit of jibber-jabber, seeing as I want to acknowledge this milestone, yet there's not really a whole lot to talk about in terms of things 'changing' or anything like that. Since it seems like keeping the course as is is working out quite well if the five-hundred posts prior to this one is any indication. Just read that to yourself and get a nice big smug grin on your face and you can imagine that's pretty much what I'm like, currently.
I suppose, however, it's worth mentioning that it's a little funny that my 500th post was a review, considering when I started up this blog, I never thought I was actually going to review things here. And in fact, I sort of had to talk myself into doing it, but since then, it's gotten a little more and more natural. I only have just over half a dozen reviews at this point (all of which can be easily accessible by slapping in "Review" on the search-bar gadget on the side, or, since I'm feeling a little bit charitable tonight, I can go ahead and just link them since this is sort of a looking back type of post. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Star Ocean: First Departure, Yakuza 4, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Alpha Protocol, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and, of course, Resistance: Burning Skies. Despite it being literally the post under this one, it's nice to keep all of them handy in case I keep doing reviews and have to (or simply decide to) keep them together in a single post for a quick reference. Because, as is obvious, Kupowered is just going to keep going well past 500 if it made it well past 100, 200, 300 and 400.
While I wouldn't say my reviews are my most important posts on the board, I will say that they do take a good bit more work than most of the other things I post which are basically sit down, look for something interesting, look up some information, and then try and post that in a form that is interesting for myself, since if I like it, others probably will as well. At least, that's the plan, but I almost never know if it's the reality or not. Still, I tend to get positive feedback, so I call it a win regardless. Of particular note, as in, posts that I always like to point out (and I always think about it) is my Character Spotlight series about Caim from Drakengard, which -might- be my favorite posts, or at least the ones I would like people to read (aside from the spoilers of course). So maybe those are what I would think of as my 'most important' posts, but then again, I just have a big ol' spot in my heart for Cavia, so I'm totally biased on that. (But still, it's a big read.)
I'm not going to drag this post out and there's really not a whole lot going on. In the post-E3 time, we've just got people reflecting on what they saw during E3, people complaining about this year's E3 (mostly deserved), and not a whole hell of a lot else. Considering Netflix actually works on our terrible internet, I'm celebrating this milestone by gorging upon on-demand TV and other such relaxation means. Hopefully there'll be something to talk about tomorrow, or that I can at least come up with something! Because I'll need a post for something that isn't "Hooray, 502nd post!" because that would just be too much, clearly. I'm still holding out hope that there was a hidden gem in -somebody's- E3 floorshow or something.
