2008 was a great year. Everyday was like a new adventure. I fought the hopeless haze of the same old boring, lazy day routines by opening my mind to many new things. Some things met or will meet their conclusion soon, but that only opens the doors to even more opportunities.

1.) Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

Apollo Justice… filled with clever dialogue, memorable characters, a compelling story, nostalgic references to the Phoenix Wright games, and a main character with a lot of spark and hilarious one-liners. Apollo Justice 2 will not be released in the immediate future… but I consider that a good thing. I don’t want this series to end any time soon.

And that’s a wrap! Farewell, 2008… Let’s see what 2009 has in store.
