Excellent video link Banjo! That's just the kind of thing I wanted to see :)
I knew this was right up your alley!

That demo was awesome! I did pretty well I'd say. I love the additions to Moray Towers. The new stages certainly do some unique things.

I missed the whole thing, but I guess I can just wait for the game. It's not like I was on the fence at this point. :P

On the plus side, it was missed because we were doing all kinds of fun out-of-the-house stuff like going to a local Vintage Grand Prix and prepping for an upcoming trip. Just wasn't the right day to be sitting inside I think!

Pshh, don't you know there are things outside? Things that want to kill you? Better to have just played video games inside. Where nothing can harm you.

I was 2 points off of Ice Cream Queen. Was so mad. Had I got a little better groups early on I would have made it but no I had to have weak teammates. They should all feel shame.

Also so excited for more. Friday can't be here soon enough.
You cannot grasp the true form of this post! Sorry.

Figured this is the place to post this fanart of Pearl I did. (I like Marina more, but whatever, poor Pearl needs some solid fanart online too!)

That turned out pretty well! If I didn't know you made it, I would wonder if it were some sort of official artwork.

That's some super high praise, thanks! :D

EDIT: In game news, I am getting the hang of this thing and really enjoying the heck out of it now. I still lose more than I win, I think, but victories DO come, where as before it was just loss after loss (unless I played with Banjo or someone, ha ha). Pretty soon I will feel confident enough to try out another weapon besides the starter one!

I also just bought my first set of gear today, so that was exciting. I feel like it does make a difference (or maybe I'm just improving, who knows).

Only thing I REALLY need to work on is keeping my heart rate down. I tense up like crazy while playing, and often after a few matches I'm literally shaking and have to take deep breaths and a break! This game is intense.

Having so much fun with this game! The addiction is real and back.

Been making great progress in Single Player (aka beating it fully with all weapons), and nabbing a sweet 43/7 ratio on my Win/Loss in my last 50 matches.

Keep. It. Coming!
