It is. But you'll use all your knowledge and sell them Xenosaga, impressing the bosses. This is your ticket to the top!

You mock me????  : 0

If you had an XBOX we could swap some RDR for RH

Absolutely if i knew what RH was.  I'm game whatever!  Oh, my brother has the X360... I'll steal it back.  I wanna play Trivial Pursuit ~Movie Edition~ with some buds anyways.

This time of year, I may pick up Assassin's Creed again too.. stabbing people is a nice escape from school.

You'll get that job and be selling $40 old PS2 RPGs to mouth-breathers in no time.



Creepiest thing.  I had a drawf-looking gamer loser stalk and talk to me around Blockbuster an entire evening one shift.  I called home, asking for a lift back, and so when we started walking, my dad pulled up alongside me and he made a break for the other direction.  It was extremely suspicious, like something on his mind was dishonourable.  He had the really gummy smile, and red edge the gums and teeth, I assume poor oral hygiene.

Anyways, I thought this was the age of Sports and Shooters?

I think I'm near the end of Red Dead. doing all the ranching shit.


I'd drop that ungrateful wife for Bonnie in a heartbeat



I beat Radiant Historia...





I have shipped myself, please expect and sign for my package in 2-4 weeks time.

Tracking number you sent said you'll be arriving in two boxes.

I hope we can piece you back together ok.

It stung some, Yoda, I won't lie.  I do appreciate the asylum and care afterward though.  It'd be lovely to smoke up with you and your lady friend.

Which reminds me - thanks for the heads up about the pee test for the job, I began to think (and I've heard) some school boards do it for their new employees.  Time to cut it out!  Mmm, I always feel fuzzy when I think how educated people have done chronic.

On the Radiant Historia ending: this is how endings should be - everyone get's covered!!

Playing some Legend of Mana.  I eyed Red Dead Redemption in local gamestore when I say a nicely priced used copy..

I'm in the middle of a total burnout.

Last week of class (no assignments, but a test)
Work all weekend
Job search all day today
Trips to the Bank (when you're broke - this is exhausting)
Just came off a Test and Two Assignment the week before.

I have some reading to do for an online quiz that we can take as many time as we want, so I just took it, screen captured the answers I did get right (or in the case of "click which are right", I clicked them all, then it told me which of them were right and which of all of them were wrong), and repeated this till I got 100%.  Go University!

Wish me luck, applied for a job at a game store, and got a hopeful reaction and an ASTERISK*** beside my name on the resume.  I told them I've been a gamer since (at least) '91, and I can up-sell.  I'm hoping my decent-enough looks and good, yet tasteful, cleavage that day help with a "geek-prone" gamer store.  Difference between me and other females working in these stores (yes, I generalize here) is that I actually do my hair and put it in something other than a ponytail.

Meh.  I have faith in J.J., but I can see why Spielberg jumped on this... thus far it looks like a modern-day E.T.  I'll need reviews, I like sci-fi just fine, but not this particular genre of it.

-  As usual for many artbooks, the scenery concept art outdoes anything you see in game - I apply this to even current-gen games... goddamit designers, listen to your artists!!!

Easier said than done, when an artist is drawing he isn't limited by memory or polygon count. The initial concept art is always scaled back untill it fits the budget that is alocated to each character/object/environment. And when you're using a piece of hardware as limited as the DS it becomes a painful process.

And yeah, the girl on the cover is totally naked.

Haha I know it's easier said then done.  But hot damn.
I know it'd be the biggest pain in the ass to make so many individual houses and design so many object to differentiate parts of town.  But it'd still be an incredibly noble uptaking.

I'll scan some shots later - even the (now) infamous cover so you can judge

Maybe it is supposed to be reminiscent of ballet.
Then wouldn't he be in tights too?
She looks barefoot... maybe I'm just a perv...

Up close, it's like super spandex.  Shoe-things are lined out in it.
Also, Raynie and Marco are the same age, despite height difference.  There is reason to believe he has animal ears too.

I got the Artbook (or "Official World Guidance" in Engrish)



Impressions...
- Pretty stuff!  The artist stick to a tablet and photoshop - barely a thing here was done with a pencil
- Amongst a ton of drawings, there's a long written section (which is sadly pretty useless to me besides...like... a few words... ah well)
-  As usual for many artbooks, the scenery concept art outdoes anything you see in game - I apply this to even current-gen games... goddamit designers, listen to your artists!!! (Alistel's city view is stunning, you get a way better impression of the "Mechanical City" bit; the Granorg one is on the OST packed with the game though).
- Stocke's artwork was relatively unchanged.  There's one hideous shot of him in some orange get up.  A lot of his designs made him with the anime trope where his bangs cover the eyes completely.
- Very little extra designs for Raynie... maybe the artist had a good idea of her from the start.  However, there is an alt. colour of her in red (Marco has one like this too... good they changed it)
- Wow, tons of designs for Marco.  A lot of them he was still in his "short, fat suit".  Seems it took a while before they settled on those biiig chipmunk eyes of his though.  One shows them being like dots, a few show him with glasses, and a few show him with more mischievous "fox"-like eyes.  One of my favorites covers his face entirely with the helmet (looking much like other Alistel soldiers).  His helmet went through several changes.  There's also one "normal" design, without the baggy clothes and button eyes and all that
- Interesting designs Eruca.  For a while it seemed she was a "dark skinned" princess.  The design was roughly the same.  One design COUNTERS her current one; black hair and black princess attire!  There's a lot of "princess-like" images in the back of the concept art.  Seems that no matter what, princess was integral to the story (I'm curious how they wanted to use it)
- Rosch was largely unchanged.
- Aht had a lot of pretty concept work, ones that don't run along the furry-pant and childlike one we see.  But the sort of "gypsie" concept stuck strong nevertheless.
- Gafka was largely unchanged.
- Interesting designs with Heiss.  Numerous that keep him bald and evil looking, but there is one that makes him look kinda handsome (glasses and wavy hair)
- Viola looked much more manlier in an earlier design and had a stupid looking scimtar sword before it
- Garland looks awesome is always
- A design for a deer-like centaur.  Only one and it looks weird.  Cross anime with a deer and....
- Interesting... I don't know if any other versions of the box art showed this, but Sonja was originally on it - and seeing as how everyone ON the cover was a playable character... hmm, makes you wonder.
- Never noticed this before, but Teo has suns on his shirt, and Lippiti has the 6 pointed star

If anyone wants specific scans, I don't mind.  I might scan the Alistel one for being awesome and making the city look less of a sewer.

The whole "Cartoons are just for kids" ideology.

And speaking of cartoons, enough with the 3D animation. 2D animation generally looks better in my opinion. And since everyone thinks that cartoons are just for kids, cartoons have gone 3D because of how simple minded children generally are.

It depends, I love a great looking 3D film, I mean, look at Pixar.  But I do think I know what meann.  There's more freedom wwith animation in general.  The Illusionist could attest to this - a greed for sure in a few shining gems

Back off. Get your own sandwich.

That ad was infectious.  I have since made it a part of my catch-phrases though; I make a damn good sandwich!!
