My city turns into a bunch of sissies at the first signs of snow. Which completely contradicts the rest of Canada...

Canadians are awful too, hell, I'm in Southern Ontario, we're not even the worst of the snowfall (hell, up north has to PLUG their cars in when they park)... but a bit of snow... AH MY GAWD *car accidents*. 

I do love those days where the weather is bad enough and everything is cancelled.  There have been a few "anticipatory cancelled days", where the weather is reported as "ITS GOING TO BE HELL" out there, so things are cancelled at the *first sight* of things being bad, but turn out not so bad... then I go to what Star talked about, as in, "everyone is for a day off work/school, so let's do it anyways".

Printing a French manual is a bitch.
Glad they reworked their sale to Canada, yeah it should have been announced for everywhere anyways.  Maybe it was just some drunk employee who sort of fucked the pooch on announcing that properly.

I already hate celebrity endorsements, but this takes the cake.

I got attacked on a Zelda forum for saying I hated these ads, the consensus being "but they're CUTE", but man, can they make simple looking parts of a game look more difficult?  Bad acting aside, I don't see the "heart" in them playing, it looks phoney.  I remember a while back some JP idol was playing a horror game that (pathetically) "reduced her to tears".  I hate girls sometimes, especially when reduced to corporate eye candy.

Low budget doesn't automatically mean bad game. I've played some amazing low-budget indie games.

I'm personally kind of excited to see what he'd bring. I'm sure he'll still have some sort of say in his franchise babies.

I didn't mean it that way, I am saying it's not always the best draw for most, more common idiot, gamers.

A want a remake of that directed by Tarantino so bad now.

Fred Williamson WAS in Dusk Till Dawn.  I almost feel like we get a bit of it whenever we see a black man in a Taratino flick (I love a lot of the black characters in Quintin flicks; Jules is my hero).

As one if few major advocates of Zelda here, throat part of me will be sad if it affects development of them at all (and we seriously need more Metroid). Otherwise, well... I dunno what "small games" means but it certainly doesn't sound like today's trend of ridiculously high budgeted epics you see today. We'll see what these low-budget titles can do in terms of staying power...

I kinda wanted and hoped Wii-U was going to be a marvel to revolutionize gaming too, a lot of Wii games seems low budget enough, don't think they need Miyamoto's help there.  *shrug*

Someone sent this to me... it's real.... nooo words.... xD

I'm sure Quentin Tarantino owns the only blu-ray copy.

bombasticness

Word of the day.

I'm in a "Zelda" mood.  Same thing happens when I watch a Quentin Terantino movie... watch one, gotta marathon others. :D

Started up Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and I''m building the courage for Majora... D:

Famitsu gave FF13 a 39/40...  unless a 39 is a C+, and the 40 jumps it to A ... caution will be taken.  I really wanted this game, oddly enough, the MTV-drama trailers are embarassing me out of my choice to be a "wait till price cut...-s"

And speaking of thing you do not want. http://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q4-2011/120611b.html

Well this sucks. :(

Hmm, I think I was close to doing this.  I didn't want to fight the Imprisoned-ass-wagon again so I went to Eldin first. :S

Link to the Past was pretty frickin dark.  I was scared to play it as a child.  The dark rain in the start, the flute boy stump, Blind the thief...

Skull Forest and those Wall Masters are now falling out of the sky instead of coming out of the woodwork when you touch the walls like normal.

I will fight DarkNuts by the PLENTY.... but I HATE Wallmasters.... x(
I don't wanna go back to the beginning of a dungeon... 'nuff said.

Majora's Mask gave me the willies as a kid the most.... I mean, COMEON!!! THAT FREAKING FERAKY MOON!! D:

I now what you mean, our pooch gets this recurring health problem, and my folks are on the same boat: they'd put her down if it just comes too much of a burden both to her, and the finances.  I can't think of anything that sounds worse, technically (hell, if it was a child, I think most parents would gladly take debt on, afterall).  I'd hate myself for the I'm sorry I can't save you, it costs too much money thought, and it's a bitch of a reality that would break my heart if I ever had to decide.  But, I'd "decide".

Bleh... BLEH BLEH BLEEEEHHH.  I couldn't sleep a wink last night (just not sleepy; every been "itchy" the whole night every time you TRY to fall asleep?), so I unfortunately had to punish myself with a NAP this afternoon.  I hated it.  It doesn't help it's miserable looking outside... BUT I HATE NAPS!!!!  I feel so gross, sluggish, groggy, and punished for not "sleeping right". BLEH.  If this throws off my jive the rest of the night, I'm gonna be pissed... D:

This is awesome. 

SO, I'm doing a Roman Art History Course.  Our textbook called Roman Art: From Romulus to Constantine.  You know Romulus and Remus and the famous she-wolf story on how Rome was founded? 

The piece in question:
The Capitoline Wolf

Well, our textbook shows off the Capitoline Wolf and it was well known to be an early piece of art from antiquity.  Turns out, it was from over 1000 years AFTER that date.  I feel bad for the textbook authors who probably flipped their shit, and now they gotta redo a good part of their book.

What makes the story that much better is that art historians actually sat on the evidence for about 5 years, not sure how to properly reveal the mistake that something that was praised from being from antiquity was actually from the middle ages.  A bit awkward. 

I'M TIRED, G'NIGHT.
