Not really! I’m humiliated, angry, sad, confused, and shaking like a leaf. I feel lost, I don’t know what to do, don’t have anyone to turn to, and nowhere to go. Clearly I screwed up somewhere because I’d like to think after 22 years I deserve to start living my life and be happy, but I’m not seeing a light at the end of this tunnel!
No, there were times where I did die, so I quit the game and went back in. I should have kept track of the actual number though, because I still didn’t die much at all. I’m playing another file now (because I can’t get enough of this game) and I only have 1 death so far, which was due to a clumsy mistake on the final Bowser level.
3D Land. It’s just got more of everything. Don’t get me wrong, New SMB Wii is great, and I’ve always been a bigger fan of the sidescrollers than the 3D titles, but 3D Land finally tops it. Now, if they take some of the elements from this game and put it into the next 2D game we’d really be cooking. And someone said they were going to do that, in fact, but I forget who and where I read it. It was probably in an Iwata Asks interview.
You’re one of the only people from the really old days of Geoweasel that has kept contact. Occasionally someone will say “Hey, I used to read the old comics a long time ago,” but unfortunately I don’t ever remember them (maybe they just never introduced themselves though).
I always feel weird when someone says I’m an inspiration to them, and I never know what to say. The only thing I can ever think to say is just “thank you,” but then I feel like I’m coming off as a jerk. I’m very critical of my work, and myself as a whole, so it’s just weird. But don’t think I don’t appreciate it! And it does make me feel good to hear from certain people sometimes. So your message is not in vain. Depression is tough. And when you keep getting dealt one bad hand after another for years and years, you stop thinking “maybe things will get better.”
It was mostly because of people trolling me and sending really nasty notes and whatnot. I don’t remember how long I left them off, but I felt bad so I turned them back on again fairly quickly I think. I like answering questions, especially the normal, everyday things like “What do you think of…” or “What’s your favorite…” and not everyone who follows my blog has a Tumblr account for themselves and therefore couldn’t ask anything. Thankfully I don’t think I’ve gotten any mean notes since turning it back on, but I have gotten weird questions recently like people asking me to post pictures of myself or asking specifics on where I live. I’m not comfortable with that.
