E3, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Style
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With game companies announcing
The games they’re releasing
Let’s all give a cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those new game unveilings
And everyone hailing
The games for this fall
It’s the hap-happiest season of all
There’ll be parties for hosting
Noob balls we’ll be roasting
So let’s go check out the new shows
There’ll be celebrities showing
The games that are going
To blow our minds, that much we know
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
The worlds shown before us
Will soon join the chorus
The launch dates are near
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
[Instrumental]
There’ll be parties for hosting
Noob balls we’ll be roasting
So let’s go check out the new shows
There’ll be celebrities showing
The games that are going
To blow our minds, that much we know
It’s the most wonderful time

Princess on the Run: The Beginning
    “Princess Kara!  Are you ready?” the handmaiden shouted from behind the door to her bedchambers.
    “Yes, Dalia, I’m ready,” came Kara’s reply.
    “Your mother and father are waiting!  Be down in the great hall in five minutes!”
    Kara could hear the handmaiden’s footsteps grow quieter as she walked away.  She chuckled at the thought of a lowly handmaiden giving her orders.  But, such was the life of a princess.  She looked out her window to see a fleet of starfighters flying in formation.  They circled and looped, eventually forming the number 18.  What an elaborate way to celebrate my birthday, Kara sarcastically thought to herself.  Even though she was princess of one of the largest empires in the universe, she did not have a taste for flair.  She preferred the simpler things in life.  The same could not be

Star
“Now, steady friend,
Welcomed as remaindered gleam,
Earth’s enemy, long dead.”
Those words speak volumes to me,
For they describe a star.
A star, although shining bright today,
May be long gone by now in reality,
Never again giving off a warm glow to
Its planetary children, never again
Filling one with a sense of wonder
As to what is out there.  But what
Difference does one star make when I
Cannot see any other stars?
Are they dead, too?  How?
How could this happen?
Did they die in a blaze of glory?
No, they didn’t.
We killed them.
Our city lights have murdered
The heavenly ones.
The artificial has destroyed the natural.
Only pockets of such beauty remain,
Visible only where Man has not
Ravaged the Earth beyond recognition.
Yet, Man slowly encroaches into these
Pockets, determined to execute
Every last point of celestial light.
“Earth’s enemy.”
Are they our enemy?
Or are we theirs?
Will we finish our heinous work?
Or will we repent of

With E3 2017 finally over, here's my annual review for the show:

EA started off the show with their press conference. They showed the classic EA sports games, plus a look at Star Wars Battlefront 2 and a new IP called Anthem. Other than Battlefront 2 and Anthem, however, nothing really stood out to me from EA's press conference.

Microsoft's press conference was next, and fared a bit better. They showed off their new system, Project Scorpio, now known as the Xbox One X. Despite being reputed as the most powerful console on the market with next-gen tech, it is still part of the current console generation as part of the Xbox One console family. Unfortunately, at $500, I don't see any reason to buy one and replace the Xbox One I currently have, especially if you can play the same games on either system. Some interesting games were shown, but nothing really stood out, except for Rare's upcoming game "Sea of Thieves". Not even a teaser for Halo 6 was shown. However, Microsoft's announcement that cross-platform gameplay was coming to Minecraft and backwards compatibility with the original Xbox library were welcome announcements.

Bethesda had their press conference next, at 11:00 p.m. Central Time. As if that wasn't bad enough, nothing really new was shown during their presser, except for a new Wolfenstein. Nothing really excited me, except for Skyrim on Switch, but even then, very little about the game was revealed, except for Amiibo support. We got no word on whether it was the Special Edition of the game or a port of the original. And we didn't get any info on whether or not it supported user mods. In all, I think Bethesda had the worst conference of the show.

Ubisoft came next, and they came out swinging. They showed off some really neat games, starting with a collaboration with Nintendo by showing off a Mario/Rabbids crossover game. We got to see a trailer for a new Assassin's Creed game, and a pirate game that looks really interesting. And their trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2 was hilarious. In all, I think they had a really good presser this year, although I missed seeing Aisha Tyler hosting the event.

Sony was next, and they had a pretty decent press conference as well. They announced an expansion for Horizon: Zero Dawn and announced a new Uncharted game. They also showed some of their VR-compatible games. However, there were some extended trailers and gameplay demos that really bogged down the presser and made things drag a bit. However, given that they had games that I was actually looking forward to, this can be excused somewhat.

Finally, Nintendo had their press event, and despite only being 25 minutes long, they had a lot to show. They showed a bit of the Mario/Rabbids game, along with a new trailer for their mainline Mario game, Super Mario Odyssey, as well as a brief teaser for the much-requested Metroid Prime 4. During their Treehouse Live Presentation, they announced that a remake of Metroid II: The Return of Samus would be coming to the 3DS in a few months, and showed off some gameplay of it. They had a really good press conference and Treehouse Live livestreams this year, and IGN gave Super Mario Odyssey their Game of E3 award.

In all, this E3 was a mixed bag. There were some great games that were shown, but a lot of duds as well. So who won E3? This year, I'd have to say Nintendo, although Ubisoft came close. This is my official ranking for each company's showing at E3 this year:

1. Nintendo
2. Ubisoft
3. Sony
4. Microsoft
5. EA
6. Bethesda

Hopefully next year's E3 will show more exciting gaming news. Until then, game on my friends.  =)

If anybody hasn't noticed, I just changed my gender option on my DA profile to "Other."  I recently came out as transgender to my friends, and my family well before that.  My friends have taken it fairly well, but the same cannot be said for my immediate family.  I chalk it up to the fact that they are conservative Catholics and are biased against it.  My mother thinks that I cannot possibly be transgender because I am attracted to women (despite me telling her ad nauseam that gender identity and sexual orientation are two different things, according to the American Psychological Association).  My father and brother, on the other hand, are more hostile to the idea.  My brother cites "scientific" studies that say that being LGBT is abnormal (despite evidence to the contrary), and my father has outright forbidden me from ever talking about it in front of him.  As such, I don't really feel welcome in my own home anymore.

Unfortunately, my financial situation has me stuck where I am right now.  I have no income, no job, and my bank account has only a little over $1100 between both savings and checking.  The cheapest rent to be found in my area is well over $1000, and most of the jobs I have applied to don't pay anywhere near enough for me to pay rent.  On top of that, I have $30,000 worth of student loans to pay off, with monthly payments of about $337.  So what I am thinking of doing is this:  I am considering opening up a Patreon account to try and get at least some money rolling in, as well as opening up another DA account to post content that for may be considered NSFW.  I may possibly open up a Patreon for that account as well, or just tie the first Patreon to that account.  I will let people know when such a thing happens, and if people are interested in viewing my second account (once it is up), just send me a note, and I will send you the link.

By the way, I am a bit conflicted on what I want to call myself.  I am sticking with Brett for now (as it is a gender-neutral name; the main female lead in the novel The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway was named Brett, oddly enough), but I would prefer a different name somewhere down the road.  I was thinking of changing my name to that of a Nintendo character, like Samus, Zelda, or Krystal.  Brett is a Celtic name, and so is Samus, but I do like the name Zelda; my parents said that if I was born a girl (or what they consider a girl), I would have been named either Zelda or Magda.  But Krystal from Star Fox is my favorite video game character, so I'm going back and forth between what I want to call myself.  I'm thinking I could just use all three, using two as middle names.  So leave some comments down below and tell me which name out of the three you think I should pick, or if I should pick all three.

Until then.  ;)
So my family and I celebrated my birthday at Medieval Times today, and I have to say, a lot has changed since the last time I was there.  The story that accompanies the show is different (as expected), but a lot of the merchandise they sell has changed as well.  When we were walking into the building, I (somewhat jokingly) quipped to my Mom that they would hopefully be selling replicas of the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda.  To my complete surprise, they do, both foam and metal replicas.  Not only that, but they also sold replicas of the Diamond Sword from Minecraft (foam only), the Energy Sword from Halo (metal only), and what looked like Connor Kenway's tomahawk from Assassin's Creed III (also metal only).

Of course, I did not buy any (partly because my Dad said no, but I couldn't really afford it anyway, especially since I bought a Nintendo Switch as a birthday present to myself), but I think it's cool that Medieval Times is now catering to the gaming crowd by selling video game swords (although the Energy Sword seems out of place, given that it comes from a sci-fi franchise and not a Medieval fantasy one).  I did not see any swords from Game of Thrones or The Lord of the Rings, but who knows what will happen in the future?  Either way, I enjoyed my time there, and it was cool to see our knight (the Red Knight) win the tournament.  Hopefully it won't be my last time going there.  Medieval Times is always fun to go to.  Cannot wait to go again.  =)
Yes, it has been a while since I posted anything on here.  Things have kind of been in a bit of a slump for me recently.  But, I have not stopped writing.  In fact, I am writing a children's book that I hope to have published by the end of the year.  I will share more details in the coming months, but for now, my lips are sealed.  I also plan on attending a screenwriting workshop in the near future to draft and hopefully someday produce a film or TV series!

But while on the topic of creative writing, I attended a seminar recently at Barnes & Noble hosted by a children's book writer on how to write books for children.  And one of the things they passed out was a little book that had samples of several manga, one of which intrigued me:  a manga called Cells at Work!

I found the concept highly similar to that of Osmosis Jones, in that it was about a red blood cell making oxygen deliveries to various parts of the human body, and is joined by a white blood cell who kills bacteria and viruses, and usually saves the red blood cell from a gruesome fate.  All the cells in the human body are anthropomorphic, in that they themselves look like humans going about their daily business.

I find the concept highly interesting, and I hope to find it on the bookshelves, either at Barnes & Noble or my local comic book store.  So if anybody hasn't checked it out, I highly recommend that you do.  :D
So lately I have been having some vivid dreams that can stay with me for days on end.  Since a lot of my story ideas can come from dreams that I have, such as my Princess on the Run story, I have decided to create a Pages document completely dedicated to writing down the dreams that I had the night before.  Some of these dreams may be adapted and fleshed out into larger stories, and some may not, depending on how interesting and coherent the dreams are.  When I have a series of dreams that melt together, I will probably be able to take out bits and pieces and make stories out of those.

So, for a little preview of what I mean, last night, I dreamt that I encountered Princess Zelda (or somebody dressed up like her) in a hotel when I was walking to the pool.  I tried to walk around through another room to get a better look at her when I walked into one of her guards and was knocked out.  When I awoke, the guards accosted me, until their commander, who was dressed in futuristic black and green armor, asked "What is going on here?"  Turns out it was Princess Zelda, who also doubled as a general in her own army (which probably makes sense).  Then, all of a sudden, I was in an RPG, and Zelda and her guards joined my party.

The night before, I dreamt that I was hanging out with Michael and Lindsay Jones of Rooster Teeth in Austin, Texas.  We went to Wendy's a couple of times, and Lindsay begged me to give her my chili (because she apparently LOVES Wendy's chili).  I forgot, and I apologized to her, promising to get her the entire vat of chili that Wendy's had in their kitchen.  A weird dream, but probably not as interesting as the dream I had last night (the one in the previous paragraph).  That one I will most likely adapt into its own story (SO NOBODY STEAL IT!!!!!  ;P).  Until then, I plan on writing my dreams down, and we'll see where it goes from there.
