So here's my nightmare... the night before a project is due and I can't fucking access the internet for 5 hours.  Late night.  I'm glad it's back up, but it's still working like ass.

So....stupid f'ing drunk driver rear ended us while we were stopped at a stop light, hopefully damage is cosmetic but the way the rear end looks I'm afraid the frame is bent, luckily we're OK and the dumb bitch got to spend the night in jail. Stupid people.

I'm just glad you're ok.  Drunk driver accidents can go a *lot* worse.  Hopefully you're not paying anything drastic and insurance has ya covered.

Today was busy, and now I do project.  B@()#@#*^@%&%!.

^Good luck with all that, sir.

Today I saw a pair of $400 shoes I absolutely loved (now if I had the money for it is a different story).  I feel like less of a tomboy than ever this year.  My mum's probably proud and sad that it meant a wardrobe change and $$$ being spent.

On that note, today at work, a customer handed me a black and metal American Express card.  ...yeah.  *It*.  I don't think I'll ever own one unless I can charm the pants off some CEO.  But I also don't know if I'll ever see one of these mythical cards again (unless I completely missed that they'd become ubiquitous or easier to get at some point... or there are just more rich people)..

Been playing Persona 4, the vanilla version not the Ponyboy version. I'm bound and determined to actually beat it this time. I'm nearing the 2nd to last dungeon and trying to finish up all the party member S-links. Every time I play this game I'm so amazed by how stylish the presentation is. The transparent silhouettes of the main characters on the main menu blows my mind every time.

I thought the menu screen was the coolest fucking thing on the planet; probably tied with the 1 second FMVs that played in FF13's menu (and then proceeded to forget about that milestone in the second installment).

Tokay island sucked balls.  It's not bad when you know what to do... but I'm all new-age-y now and I can't stand Link's general walking speed in those old games.  I'll give you that.  Goron dancing I barely remember, but I remember having a save stuck at that part for a bit.... oh... that and in Seasons where that fucker has to repair the Balance Stone (or whatever) and needs to have a minecart en route to crashing into it while enemies come at you.... that was the weirdest and stupidest thing a game has had to ask you to do.

I never bothered with the 4th bottle in OoT... 3 is usually enough and I'm no completionist.

Speaking of Link
URL says it all, I thought this was a nice gesture.  Kinda wish they do it more with "blank slate" characters.  I'm sick of playing as a dude, though I never really understood the "it makes *you* the lead!" angle of silent characters.

Chrono Trigger
Lucca's mom
The first time I played CT, I was pressing A to acknowledge the text box telling you to enter LARA, which would mean me pressing ALARA each time. As she was getting closer to the machine, I started to panic and swear at the game until *SCREEEEAM*
I loaded my prior save (which was a while ago) and redid it until I figured out what I was doing wrong.
I refused to let her be crippled because of some stupid mistake.

You and about 10,000 other people, amirite? Can't keep going through that game without loading prior save and waiting through that whole camping cut scene so you get another shot at it.

As a kid, failing that was pretty traumatizing.  There's another similar sequence in Robo's character chapter when you go to the second factory near the end of the game.  Some fella is sort of lying on a conveyor belt, and when his body passes into a machine part, you hear a scream, and what must be soylent green comes out the other end... fucken hell, I hated that too, I always run through that room *fast*.

I just got a healed picture of a really fun tattoo I got the opportunity to do... between this piece and the fact that I nabbed X-Com for 25 bucks at wal-mart this black friday officially rocks for me :)

Goddamn that's nice!  Really well done for pretty complicated work. :)
If I need a gaming tat, I know who to ask (and who to make a trip to the States for?? D: ...bah!). 

Today I worked on a paper... then I loafed and cleaned my room.  I was about to start up my paper again, but got too hungry and waited for dinner.  A good day.

Each game has an annoying sequence, so I don't think that's too Capcom-exclusive.
Ocarina of Time has Dampe's grave and the "childhood arc" dungeons, Majora's Mask has "the first 3 days", Twilight Princess has the Sacred Grove (*groan* twice), Wind Waker has sailing and Forsaken Fortress (which is one big stealth sequence aside from when you're thwacking an enemy with a giant stick), Skyward Sword has you doing three laps around the Hyrule track ... and Adventure of Link is one big long annoying sequence.

I bought a pair of Nike buds and the fuckers would occasionally shock my ears.

Pain is the only way we truly know we're alive.

Fuck that noise.

Actually, I've always wanted to survive like.. a stab wound or some sort of accident, to say I have, and stop being a wuss about a paper cut or whatever else.  But I guess that's not things you really should wish for...

I want this installed for the moment I die.  Crumble!!!  Sweet Estate!

Fought my brother some more, he's a terrible person.

Watching Harry Potter movies

Christmas shopped online

Reading about homosexuality and identity issues for a paper; reading about Metta Worldpeace for another.... he's insane.

Kinda on topic... but skipping the PS2 generation of games.

A good generation it was.

I have remorse for the stuff I've given away.  I traded Skies of Arcadia Legends and I don't know why (well, ok, it does get really tedious by the end, but...).

I've been watching Haunting Ground's LP (the one with the chicken who looks like Jill Valentine in Res5).  I want [another] dog.

I actually liked the Capcom Zeldas.  Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, and Minish Cap were pretty fun.

Those are actually my three favorite Zeldas, along with LttP :)

I'd *love* to see another Capcom-made Zelda title.
Seasons and Minish were a step above Nintendo's handheld efforts with the series.  Heck, I wouldn't mind a continuation of Minish Cap, I thought the concept was a lot of fun to just leave alone.

Getting better "completes" I suppose counts.  I was looking at my trophies in comparison to another persons, and man do they milk their purchases (i.e.; gets at least 50%+ of the trophies).  He also seems to do more with his life than I do work-wise.  I don't know where I fall in... then I wonder if I should even bother caring?  HMM.

Moving on.

Suikoden II
Not saving Nanami from her death.  I really lost my nerve when I missed only two....TWO of the permanently missable stars.  Then again, the requirements to actually save her are pretty...far out.  Don't you actually have to equip her with good shit too??  Fuck, if only FF7's Aeris knew that before Sephiroth cut into her like warm butter...

On that note...

Final Fantasy VII
Not beating Emerald and Ruby... without Gameshark.  D:
I do blame my youth at the time for just not really being up to the challenge too.  I also regret my latest playthrough that's letting KotR do all the work when a boss annoys me...

Radiant Historia/VLR? -- blind plays
Not watching all the "bad" endings.  If this game and 999/VLR prove: they can be quite worth it.  On that note, for the sake of saving time, I usually reference a guide... a lot of the impact is lost though when you do so, certain games are just way better to play blind.  Alice's "game over" ending is fucken frightening, but if you picked the right option you have it explained to you and really loses the kick of the original.  I really want to play more games blind.

For thinking they're hilarious looking right off the bat.  Which is pretty goddamn ironic if I side more with JRPGs (which can be equally "hilarious" looking for different reasons... For example: Infamous versus Eternal Sonata.  I wanna make fun of Cole every minute for being a grunge-punk, Batman-lung-cancer-wannabe with super static powers.... but Eternal Sonata takes place in Anime-Chopin's death dream...and deals with his sister in some time-loop[?] in that dream[?] and _______????_____??).  But this argument is old.  I've been getting into quite a few lately too.

Star Ocean 3
Despite being one of only 3 people who love the game, I never beat the secret dungeons.  I guess after clocking 100 hours and their difficulty still being a problem and the fact one dungeon is called Sphere 221 (I think) and having some ridiculous # of floors.... bah.  I moved on, but plan to go back.  That game, however, does have some of the meanest dungeons I've played in an RPG.

Mass Effect's
Kyuusei may hate me, or at the very least frown and grill me for it, but I regret not having played these yet.

I regrret not beating it.  I regret selling it a bit too.  But given the time I have, the game was just intimidating.  I find gigantic overworlds really scary to take on

Zone of the Enders HD
Um, I kinda have remorse for buying it haha.  I know there's a good game in there somewhere, but starting it up is a pain in the butt...

I wanna add a "win" to all of these.  I'm proud as hell for having a sort-of "perfect run" on VP's Hard Mode.  That was swell. :)
