The Dying of the Light

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Aug 28 2014 · 75 views

The ninth and final Skulduggery Pleasant book was released today, and with it came both the silver cover edition and my quest to Waterstones for the limited edition, 1 of 1000 black edition. It was actually kind of sad as I took it to the counter. There ends yet another era, a favourite series of mine since the first installment back in 2007. Not really that long ago when you think about it, I guess, but it still remains one of my biggest influences and inspirations. Of course it isn't actually over because I haven't started it yet and that normally stops something from ending. Still need a regular retail edition so I don't accidentally damage one of the others.

Yes I am buying three copies of the same book shut up

A Crazy Theory

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Aug 24 2014 · 118 views

I think my motivation to write is directly related to the proximity of a new series of Doctor Who. Expect a new story soon, one that I hope will both be finished and...y'know, read.

After I finished Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright, of course. Can't say if it's that great so far but it's convinced me to get more Professor Layton games.

Sometimes I lie awake at night

And I think of the guy who decided that the Rock Steeds in The Legend Reborn should whinny like horses

And I know I'll never have vengeance.

It makes me sad.

Critical Levels of Happening

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Jul 02 2014 · 143 views

So I spent most of the build up to E3 laughing at those who posted "leaked" schedules of each presentation because it's obviously official if it's a photo of a piece of paper with some blurry and hard to discern matter of interest being viewed at an angle.

But screw that because I really want to believe that this is happening. Maybe my dreams are coming true...
