Friday Things: 04/05 - I'm back!

LinksKristina PinoComment

[Hello! Greetings from Japan! I'm all moved in at my lovely little town, and it looks like I'm finally settled down enough to get back to my regularly programmed Friday Things. Yay! I'll be updating with pictures and stories about my life in Japan, so don't fret. For now, just chomp on some links.]

On Games:

I didn't know that DuckTales (the game) was being remastered, but Joystiq posted an update about it recently, including the info that we'll get a bit of a prologue with it for story background. Now I'm excited!

Square Enix's latest FFXI newsletter is all about Seekers of Adoulin. It definitely makes me want to re-activate my FFXI account...

One thing that did make me quite sad this week was to see that Zelda Reorchestrated is shutting down. When I went to MAGFest, I attended their panel and the crew was so hopeful they were going to launch their CD this year, talking about how they were in contact with Nintendo about it and getting final approvals. It didn't work out though, and they're not going to be able to release Twilight Symphony after all. Sad!

On Disney:

If you're a fan of Where's My Water? by Disney Mobile, there's a great behind-the-scenes look in this video by The Disney Post.

What's that, you ask? Am I excited about the next entry in the DisneyNature series? Yes, yes I am definitely excited to learn about Bears!

I've been a little more tuned in to Disney/Hyperion-published books lately, and these The Never Girls books totally slipped under my radar. Yep, I'll be reading those soon, too!

Other:

I like looking at cool cakes, and I must say this TARDIS one is impressive.

I'm pretty miffed that Google is nixing their reader, so I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do as a replacement for all the blogs I cycle through every day. LifeHacker has a list with alternatives that I'll have to try out soon. Any suggestions?

[A little short this week, but that's all I've got! I've been pretty busy with the move and settling in, not to mention exploring my area, meeting new people, and trying new foods. I'll be posting regularly again from now on though, so please keep checking back!]
