Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep uses the word "Darkness" like in every fucking paragraph.    .... :D

I don't really know otherwise. =/

Guess what she wanted for her birthday.

It's a good title.  The cutscenes suck nut, but the rest is top-notch. ^__^d

Splash page now shows some lovely, 3D graphic'd in-game[?], scenery, and a fucking creepy ass red drgon holding a heart.  The contrast is brutal./

Meh, I think this kinda crosses over nicely as an anime.  Just imagine the day-time drama of accepting yourself and all that shnazz.

I actually watched the three Twilight movies (background noise while I was working on something) and came to two conclusions:

1) The acting is fucking horrible, which is a shame, because you have some decent drama here.  Everyone is actually okay, except for out two main fucktard lovebirds, the vampire dipshit and the on[e]motion Bella. Seriously, she is so, so awkward to watch, and seems to have trouble expressing "happiness"; this in turn makes the plot and the "gravity of love" between them hard to swallow and hard to buy.

2) I know how the series ends with her and the vamp; but is it just me, or does that just not seem right?  The script tends to push away from her decision to become a vamp, and does so pretty effectively, but her teen-crush is preventing rational thinking.  Wait, in fact, her teen crush *himself* discourages it.  With Jacob, she "wouldn't have to change", wouldn't have to leave her family and friends, and would lead a relatively normal life.  They make these contrasts too; Jacob is "warm" to the touch, and Ed is "cold", stuff life that. 

3) Fucking glittering.  FUCKING. GLITTERING.


Watched A Fish Called Wanda.  Perfect blend of Brit slapstick and vulgar American humour.

Also watched one of my favorite movies: LA Story.

gameplay >>>>>>>>story >> everything else

This is how it is for me. Actually, a game with a compelling enough story and SERVICEABLE gameplay (think NieR or Killer7) can be really liked by me too, as long as the gameplay isn't torturous I can get by on story, but if I had to choose between "awful gameplay but great story" or "amazing gameplay but awful story" I'll go with the latter just about any day. Unless said story has too much of an overbearing presence, in which case fuck it.

Star Ocean?

Everyone was pissy when Vesperia focused on development than "the past" (I guess because it worked so well for Abyss?). 

I'm indifferent -- both work.

If anyone enjoys hip-hop dance, this girl kills it:


Yes. I. Do. x)
She is amazing~!

Does wardrobe malfunctioning not even factor in or come into mind when she chooses her clothes?  She seriously needed some tape on her shirt -- but nice hooters nonetheless.

And Part 4 of Persona 4's pretty damn awesome comic dub. :D

I will watch it, and be stunned by MC yakking so much, probably. :)

I actually enjoyed Chrono Cross. It wasn't the CT followup that people expected, but it was a fine game on its own. It had too many characters and the battle system was a little better in concept than execution, though.

I liked it too, I found the plot twist was an AMAZING follow-up to the original, shame it came as a clusterfuck at the bitter end.  I was keen on the battle system as well.  One thing I hated, plot-wise, was the pace.  If you can, try to explain *why* you went from one place to the next and you may give yourself a nonsense-headache.

It must be hard to start exercising while over-weight, but you really showed it who's boss!  That's amazing, well done, Hathen!!

Had my best friend staying over for the last 5 days, which was fun. Though he is practically like another limb, as he never leaves my side. Which makes surfing the net a bit weird, since I hate people looking over my shoulder as I type. So yeah, it was radio silence while he was here. But I am back now.

Until the 20th. Because my boyfriend has asked him to babysit me while he is away for a week because I can't be trusted in the house by myself apparently. I AM OFFEND.

My best [childhood] friend was a sore for that.  Sometimes she'd stay the extra day after a sleep over and just be a pain in the ass.  One thing I loved though, was as a kid she was moody, when her mum came to pick her up, she did so literally while she was still sleeping, then she'd wake up crying "NOOoooOOOOoo".  To this day, she still hates her house.  Unfortunately, she did it while wearing bleach blond, red lipstick, and black as night eyeliner.  You rebel, you.  She is one of the single-child, rich kids who hates her parents; it's a bloody category, I know a bunch of rich kids that just seem to hate their home life.  Nothing made that more clear than when I asked, "What are you doing this Summer?", she says, "Oh... we're going to Europe...again" (poor little rich girl, huh?  =/  ).
7438  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: April 10, 2011, 01:34:30 PM
So, yesterday, I beat the game; took me 63 hours to do so. Having beaten it, I can say that...I really liked it, but I wouldn't put it up there with my favorite RPG's; I don't know if this case with anyone else, but to me, while the battle-system was good, and there were a fair number of sidequests, Trails in the Sky wasn't all that gameplay oriented; this game's driving force truely was the story, to the point where it felt less like a game, and more like an interactive book, which is actually alright, considering the story was rather good on the whole. But, due to all of this, I don't feel like putting on my list of favorite RPG's, simply because it doesn't feel like one; even Persona 3 felt had that RPG feel, whereas, again, Trails in the Sky is more like a book, albeit a book that you play through. So then, if you really like good story and narrative, mixed with some RPG trappings, feel thread to pick this title up and play/read it. ;) (Just don't let the fact that this a portable title fool you; like a good book, you're going to want to sit down for decent chunks of time with this one.)

This is a fair review and it makes sense.  Kinda like how you get some restaurants that are more of "a restaurant [the focus] with a bar [secondary feature]" (family diner's with like, 3 beers on tap) or a "bar with a restaurant" (Jack Astor's or something).
I feel this with Trails in the Sky, it's more of a storybook *with* battles than anything else, where say, Star Ocean's are usually hardcore battles *with* a story happening in the back. 

Mind you, I think I've said it a dozen times here, I'm more about gameplay because story's in games aren't nothing special half of the time, but I am pleasantly surprised with this one.  The gameplay can be a drag sometimes (I'm still in "Chapter 1" though, RPGs usually take time to heat up), but for once the story is keeping me hooked on it -- and it's not a bad thing at all.

Even though I dug the more optimistic looking female heroine, I do like the more-direct female version of P4's guy.

Haha a Social Link with Kanji would be amazing as a female. x)

Actually, to me the hidden hero of the FFV battle system was the fucking awesome equipment.  Often the equipment that came "enchanted" with like haste or any other special perks were more worth it than "stronger" equipment.  That was my favorite part, not only job customizing, but the items! =)

I hated FFV's story though.  The 3 worlds concept was the best part about it, ExDeath didn't make much sense.  FFIV had a bigger impact (ex; "BROOOTHHHERR!!!!").  FFVI was amazing though, I still didn't think the battle system was as good, but the overall world, people, and experience was what made it awesome.
