Don't Let the Door Hit You, 2012
Yeah. There were good things. Great things, even. But the majority of them were in gaming, which in of itself is not a bad thing, I suppose. The Vita came out which might be the single most high point of the year in terms of gaming (for me), and I guess if it's your thing, the Wii U came out too just recently. Beyond that, the year saw the release of such wonderful titles as Sleeping Dogs, Lollipop Chainsaw, the surprisingly fun Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden and a handful of other great titles. Playstation Plus hit its stride, coming out as the bonafide best deal in gaming, with the implementation of the Instant Game Collection not only for the Playstation 3, but the Vita as well. And did I mention Persona 4 Golden? Because Persona 4 Golden.
Everything else, though, pretty much sucked for me this year. Between suddenly becoming single (officially), health issues for myself and my family and a bunch of other stuff, it's been a stressful year. One that I'm not too happy with and one that I'm certainly not going to miss. I could always hope that 2013 will be better, but considering that I'll be spending New Year's Eve by myself with only my Vita and some carbonated beverages to keep me company, combined with the fact that I am positive I'll be getting some bad news fairly soon after midnight, I'm certainly not looking forward to it, either. But it's just something I've got to soldier through, I suppose. Or at least something I just can't let bowl me over whilst I drag myself through it, is more appropriate. Since I'm not too optimistic.
As such, I'm not going to do a big stats post tonight. I could - I have the time, but the desire just isn't there tonight and I don't want to force it. I can say that I'll probably do one tomorrow, but I don't know the truth in that statement. And I really do need to finish the series of 999 posts - had I realized that it was literally this close to New Years (I don't know why I didn't think about it) I would've started it after the new year. Live and learn, I suppose. Apologies for kind of wobbling that one, folks.
And with that, I have some social links to build up, and terrible soft drinks to consume. For Auld Lang Syne indeed.
