There probably wouldn't have been anything other than the usual Retrospective this time if it weren't for two notable happenings prompting me to weigh in. It was easy enough for me react to the pure negativity that sparked the first post, but accurately describing my mixed feelings about a trip that started off on the wrong foot and ended as wonderfully as I'd always hoped it would was difficult. I almost regret writing it for fear that my memories and impressions will be misconstrued, but that alone should tell you that there was more than enough good to make me feel that way at all.

Two of the three articles with which I'm credited weren't even written in June, and the other one I expected to be posted in July, so you can consider me a slacker this month. You can assume that something similar happened with any recording I did for YouTube, which explains why people who've seen my Retrospective posts before might think I'm missing a section after this one.

After I concluded the heavy, lengthy Mass Effect trilogy, I needed something comparatively short and fluffy to play. I accidentally chose one of the hardest games I've played in some time, but it's reminding me how to play video games like a serious gamer again. I've also been playing through the various LEGO games off and on with my wife, and we finally made some good progress. Lastly, I did just a little bit more housekeeping. Yay.
