JUST IN TIME FOR THE RE6 DEMO TOMORROW

BRB PLAYING IT FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS EVER



MY BODY IS READY
its_game_time: (WAT R U DOING MR ANDERSON)
I've said very little on the upcoming live-action RE film -- with good reason -- and what little I've said has been mostly restrained to Plurk. However, with the latest "fight" scene that just popped up, I feel I should do an obligatory .gif-reaction post.

I didn't think you could get by in Hollywood lacking THIS much quality. )

its_game_time: (Don't you trust your partner?)
Now, the only (mainstream) Final Fantasy games I've actually played are X and XIII, and those frustrated me so much that I've decided to save myself some pain by probably never participating in another one. BUT, the games are so freaking pretty and awesome that I do watch my sisters play them off and on; they started FFIX a while back, and I was actually there for most of it, so I'm familiar with about 90% of the story.

They beat the game last night.



I just. I just. I JUST--

GOD WHY ARE THESE STUPID GAMES SUCH TEAR-JERKERS

WTF WHY DO I EVEN TAKE INTEREST IN RPGs ANYMORE BECAUSE ALL THEY DO IS MAKE ME CRY

SPOILERS )

brb sob
its_game_time: (Do not care at all.)
Video games: the only thing that can both get me to dance like this and enjoy it.

Say what you like. I have fun with it.
its_game_time: (Stress relief comin' right up.)
As I play through RE2, there are a few things that I really need to keep in mind:

-THERE IS NO 180-TURN. I MUST STOP FORGETTING THIS EVERY TIME A ZOMBIE GETS UP ON ME.

-I AM NOT JILL. Read: I cannot dodge things except when I manually run around them. ...Which probably means that reflexively button-mashing every time I get grabbed is useless.

-I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT CERBERUS DEAL MORE DAMAGE NOW. Stop trying to dodge and just kill the stupid things. I HAVE ENOUGH AMMO TO SPARE.

Orz I don't know what it is about this game in particular, but fml it's tedious and things need to stop jumping out of pseudo-still background images. Trenchy The Tyrant's going to give me a heart attack at this rate and stop popping up at random, Sherry. You're lucky I'm not in control during cutscenes because I would've shot you by now.

Iiiiiiin other news, I was tricked duped ganged up on tempted enabled talked into joining a new RP game, [community profile] dragonhaven -- my first DreamWidth game, no less! In my defense, all I did was post at dear_mun with Trish after moving her journal over and I was immediately jumped by an awesome DMC cast. ;; Who, aside from being awesome, doesn't seem to mind my backtagging tendencies. Excellent.

It seems like a pretty laidback place, and it's considerably brighter in theme than I generally find myself interested in, so that's a nice change of pace. I'm not a total sadist, tyvm. I was just accepted as Trish, and I may app Jill, too. Maybe from a different canon point than usual, just to mix things up? Hmm...

Either way, I figure I've made time for a game on the side since I've pretty much forsaken Bakerstreet; it's full of so much drama now that it's practically a joke. 'B| Not to mention half the memes are sex memes, which I have no interest in (and I swear I see the same one three or four times a week sometimes, wtf), and I play from a lot of obscure series, and a lot of players are rather snooty about refusing to backtag (or about tagging back at ALL), so. Bleh. Unless I'm interacting with RP buddies of mine, it's really not worth it.
its_game_time: (Default)
I already posted this on Tumblr, but wth, I'll post it here, too, for reference.

My RE6 Ada Wong Conspiracy Theory -- because seriously? No one else has noticed these things? )

So, in a nutshell--

Capcom: LOOK GAIZ IT IS ADA

Me:




Also, I did a thing, because this is pretty much how I feel as I play through the REmake.

I AM A TTL ARTIST, Y/N

Here at [livejournal.com profile] timetogame

Cross-posted like a mofo, sorry for any repeats.
its_game_time: (Lloyd; lol wat)
I just started RE0 (so my commitment to replaying the whole series is OFFICIAL), and as I watched Billy's intro, I suddenly connected the dots and made a startlingly delayed realization concerning the men in this series.

Resident Evil 0

Rebecca: OMG YOU'RE THAT WANTED FELON
Billy: So, you seem to know me. Been... fantasizin' about me?

Resident Evil 3

Jill: Hey, dude I don't know--
Carlos: YOU WANNA ASK ME OUT, RITE. ALL THE FOXY LADIES DO~
Jill: WTF

Resident Evil 4

Leon: Let's board up this house against the looming onslaught of angry villagers!
Ashley: Okay!
Luis: AW, COOL, SHE'S GOT BOOBS!
Ashley: >B|

-A few hours later-

Leon: SORRY, ASHLEY, BUT I MUST REJECT YOUR ADVANCES
Hunnigan: o hai Leon good to see you're alive--
Leon: OH HEY BABY YOU LOOK SEXY WITHOUT DEM GLASSES
Hunnigan: ...

Resident Evil 5

Jill: Who're you?
Josh: I'm Josh Stone and-- HOLY CRAP YOU'RE JILL VALENTINE HEY BEAUTIFUL LET'S GO ON A CHOPPER RIDE TOGETHER 8DDD

-10 minutes later-

Josh: HEY DOUG I PICKED ME UP A LADY FRIEND
Doug: Is she cute??
Josh: HEY WATCH IT MAN THIS IS THE JILL VALENTINE, TYVM
Doug: HOLY CRAP HEY MISS VALENTINE 'SUP SEXY DON'T WORRY I WILL COME SAVE YOU AND LET YOU MEET A REAL MAN K
Jill: .............../polite-ish laugh

-10 minutes later-

Doug: ARE YOU STILL WAITING? I'M ON MY WAY, YOU BEAUTIFUL THING~
Jill: ...

-5 minutes later-

Doug: I'M STILL COMING, CUTIE ♥~~~!
Jill: /IGNORES

Resident Evil: Revelations

Chris: GOSH DARN IT VIRUS LEAK
Jill: WE HAVE TO STOP IT FROM SPREADING!
Parker: Oh, hey, Chris, you take Jill and I'll take Jessica -- we can do some friendly partner swapping~ /NUDGE NUDGE ;D
Jill: /sidelong look
Jessica: D8
Chris: /either TOTALLY OBLIVIOUS or TOTALLY IGNORING


Realization: the men in this series pick the absolute worst times for flirting and/or thinking about Things Like That -- e.g., they do it RIGHT AWAY or they do it at the most inopportune moments.

...Except for Chris, who... doesn't flirt. PRIORITIES, MAN. HE HAS THEM.
its_game_time: (TAKE ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE OF MY HEART)
AWWW YEAAAHHH

FINALLY BEAT FINAL FANTASY XIII

\o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

...Yes, I know it's like two years old and the sequel just came out, but IDC WE FINALLY FINISHED IT \o/

WHICH MAKES IT THE FIRST FF GAME THAT I HAVE COMPLETED

SPOILERS )
its_game_time: (The mark of a genius.)
With RE6 on the horizon, I figure I'll probably do the thing that a lot of people are doing and replay the entire series before it arrives. o7 SO, as a reference list for myself:

[ ] RE0
[ ] RE1 (REmake)
[ ] RE2
[ ] RE3
[ ] Outbreak (File #2)
[ ] Code: Veronica X
[ ] Darkside Chronicles (Operation: Javier levels)
[ ] Umbrella Chronicles (T-A.L.O.S. + bonus levels)
[ ] Revelations
[ ] RE4 (plus Assignment Ada + Separate Ways)
[ ] Degeneration (I know it's not a game. NO SMART-MOUTHING TY)
[ ] RE5 (plus Lost in Nightmares + Desperate Escape)

...Looking at it like that, it's actually a bit daunting. Until I remember that most of them can be beaten in under ten hours, anyway. I do intend to do each one blank slate -- as in, no carry-over weapons or supplies from previous files (except for alternate costumes in the cases of 0, 1, and 3 because HECK YEAH I LOVE THEM). I'm not sure whether I'll do both Chris' and Jill's stories in RE1 or just one of them, but for RE2, I'll only do the Claire-Leon scenario (as opposed to Claire-Leon AND Leon-Claire). I'm not a huge fan of RE2, okay, so sue me.

I'm actually not sure how I'll handle Outbreak, though; since it's not directly canon, I might do all the other games first and then just kinda screw around with it since it has been forever since I played it and I was positively awful back then, SO.

Overall, three months to beat eleven games, more or less, and watch one movie. RE0 might give me trouble just because it's been so long and I haven't played it as much as the others; I tend to die in RE2 more than any other game in the series; I've only played CV once, too, and AUGH GOD THOSE WESKER LEVELS IN UC I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THEM. B|; Still, even if I just play for a couple hours each night, I should finish with plenty of time to spare.

Ideally.

WISH ME LUCK?
its_game_time: (You keep talking; I'll keep facepalming.)
WELL. As I stated previously, I've been doing my best to avoid news of the upcoming RE live action movie, as well as keeping quiet on what I do see -- BUT APPARENTLY [livejournal.com profile] tao_empress LIKES ME WHEN I'M ANGRY, and since she went to the trouble of linking me to Retribution's E3 trailer, I decided wtf, I'll amuse her because I love her. ♥

SO, I watched said trailer, and typed up my reactions as I was doing so.

But first, two disclaimers and a Srs Moment. )

The BEST PART about all this, though, was when I was talking with my sisters about it and I again wondered aloud why Wesker didn't just eat Alice if he captured her, since that was his goal for all of the fourth movie -- and then in the next room over, my mom calls in, "Because she wasn't on the menu!"

PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT XDDDD

EVEN SHE REMEMBERS THAT TERRIBLE LINE LKSDJFLKSJDFSDS /DEAD FOREVER

Hoo.

Moving on, let's go in a different direction: I recently watched a trailer for the new Spider-Man movie, courtesy of my 3DS. Honestly, I hadn't watched anything on the movie since the first or second teaser, waaaaay back when; for whatever reason, this reboot just failed to capture my attention or my heart.

...That has changed. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
Just finished Spider-Man: Edge of Time!

In short... )

And SPEAKING of Spidey, I finally got around to watching some episodes of the new Spider-Man cartoon on Disney, Ultimate Spider-Man.

...

......

...Well... it's not... bad, but... it... definitely needs some work. Like, a ton of work. 8|

It doesn't help that the last Spidey show I watched was Spectacular Spider-Man, which was easily the best Marvel cartoon (if not THE best cartoon, period) that I've ever seen -- so living up to its reputation would be difficult for any show, but Disney... well. It dropped the ball on this one.

WHY, DISNEY. WHY. )

And thus, the recent announcement of a new Avengers cartoon, also by Disney -- which will undoubtedly result in the cancellation of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the second best Marvel cartoon ever -- has broken what bit of my heart that the loss of Spectacular Spidey didn't. 8'((( I DON'T EVEN WATCH THAT MUCH TV, DISNEY, SO WHY MUST YOU TAKE AWAY THE FEW THINGS THAT I ENJOY?? >|

On a separate note, I just started my free trial at Gamefly. First up, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, finally. I'm half-considering renting Operation Raccoon City again towards the end of the trial, just so I can get some more achievements and at least see all the cutscenes (since they are pretty, even if Nicholai and Jill and Carlos look rather... eh.), buuuut idk yet. I got so frustrated with that game at times that I'm not sure it's worth it when I could rent something new instead; not to mention I'm irked that I keep seeing more and more DLC for it, making it come off as One Of Those Games that purposely puts very little content in the actual game just to force players to buy more of it.

IDK, but aside from AC, I'm hoping to get my hands on Fatal Frame (ffff WISH ME LUCK GUYS IT WILL PROBABLY GIVE ME NIGHTMARES WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF) and Portal 2. Uhhhh what else... probably some multiplayer games for me and my sisters to co-op, maybe Mario Tennis Open, and OH some dance games for the Wii, since my self-esteem knows no injury and I am totally cool with dancing around like an idiot. Maybe I'll finally give Mass Effect a try, even.

E3 Round-up

its_game_time: (Neliel; 8DDD)
With E3 more or less over (unofficially? ...starting early threw me off, wth), it's time I roped in all my impressions and opinions into one place (at least on the things that left the biggest impressions on me), SO, here we go.

Note that any of these rants statements are prone to have spoilers for that particular series.

The Wii U (overall) )

Resident Evil 6 )

Dead Space 3 )

Black Ops 2 )

ZombiU )

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon )

Lego City: Undercover )

LEGO The Lord of the Rings )

Assassin's Creed 3 )

And that's about it.


...Reluctantly, I will admit that some word reached me regarding the next RE Anderson abomination film, but. I think it's best for everyone, including myself, if I don't Go There just yet. Or ever, if possible.

/sits on hands

NEW RE6 TRAILER FROM E3~~



It... actually doesn't tell us much story-wise, BUT OMG THE GAMEPLAY

THE GAMEPLAAAAAAAAAAY <33333

I HAVE NO WORDS EXCEPT DO FREAKIN' WANT

EEEEEE )

...and ffffff, I simply voiced my opinion in the comments that I still don't believe New Chick is Ada, and some dork immediately jumped on me about it and IS BEING SO EMO OVER IT.

Him: "She look's like Ada, they say her name in the trailer (Ada Wong) - She is Ada"
Me: "They also said Jill was dead in all the RE5 trailers and showed her tombstone. She wasn't."
Him: "And what, they will now make RE 6 to have a fucking Ada Clone or what, SAME VOICE, SAME LOOK, SAME BEHAVIOR(Atleast it looks like) I don't think they would let themselves to make such a shitty story with clones and stuff"
Me: "Could be. As for her behavior, I don't think she acts like Ada at all, actually; Ada works in the shadows a lot more, and she's not cruel like this woman is acting. It's hard to say at this point, so I'm not assuming anything."

TAKE A CHILL PILL, PEOPLE. IT IS CALLED HAVING AN OPINION. NO NEED TO DROP F-BOMBS. U MAD, BRO
its_game_time: (Lloyd; lol wat)
So, uh. I think I just had a dream that actually continued from that weird Matrix/Batman/Final Fantasy dream mix thing from a little bit ago. 8|a

In this one, I'm actually all Matrix'd up in the long black coat and sunglasses gear, lmao, and infiltrating the storehouse of this black market weapons dealer. A little ways in, some guards spot me and a brief chase scene ensues, and I escape because I've got someone on my cell phone who's giving me instructions and directions (idk who, maybe it was Alory or Tao??).

Skip to later, and for some reason I actually have a meeting with the weapons dealer -- who turns out to be my grandma.

...

Yeah, I have no freaking idea, either.

Turns out she's been trying to get ahold of me for a while and I've been avoiding her. Fully aware that I'm Neo The One, she asks how I escaped her guards the last time, and since I don't want to tell her about my phone buddy, I just respond, "...I'm a little special." She asks how I'm special, and I decide not to mention that I can see the Matrix coding; instead, I tell her, "I can move faster than most people. That's how I was able to dodge bullets."

And that's all I remember.

idek what to think of you, subconscious mind.
its_game_time: (Saccharine BS? DNW.)
So I finally got around to reading the infamous script for George Romero's version of the Resident Evil movie, and naturally I had to log my reactions as I was reading it.

MY MIND IS BLOWN )

Still, it was an honor just to read the script. You da man, George Romero, you da man. As if there was ever any doubt.



I want this movie to be made like burning. ;^;
