So, I finally got around to watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 -- yes, part 1, because after the seventh book I just Did Not Care Anymore, and I actually haven't seen the fifth movie in 100% full yet, or the sixth one at all.


o.m.g. The HHr scenes. ;_____; <333333 THE DANCE SCENE WAS THE MOST ADORABLY CUTE AND SWEET THING I HAVE EVER SEEN they are so, so beautiful together wryyyyyyyy.

Still my #1 OTP forever. :| For srs.

That aside... the movie was about 100x more tolerable than the book, since it A) shuffled those ridiculous plot holes and plot devices under the rug, B) made Ron WAY less emo and thus MUCH more tolerable, and C) cut way back on the hours and hours of pointless emo-ing and page-filling angst in general. But. Yeaaaaah, wtf was that. "ZIP UP MY DRESS PLZ?" moment. Ugh. B| DELEEEEEETE.

And I am laughing forever at the largely negative reaction that ~ULTIMATE~ MvC3 received from the crowd at Comic-Con during the Capcom panel. >D That was truth and justice at its beautiful finest. GET USED TO THE SILENCE, CAPCOM -- THAT'S ALL YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR IN THE HOLE YOU'RE DIGGING YOURSELF.

Day 20 - Favorite genre. )
its_game_time: (Pikachu; ...ahaha~~)
So, I finally got around to watching Disney's Tangled the other night.

...Did anyone else cry? >_>

/COUGHS Anyway, I also finished Dead Space 2 and omgggggg that game was so amazing. *_* I'm doing a second run-through to wrap up some achievements and let NO ONE TELL YOU that the game is less scary the second time. :| I played for about an hour and yelled at least five times.

We've also gone back to FFXIII and MY GOD, FINAL FANTASY. YOUR BOSS FIGHTS SUCK. The only exception was the fight with
which certainly wasn't easy, but it was challenging in an "OH, COOL, I LOVE THIS FIGHT" kind of way, the kind where you get real far and then lose and still have a good time, which I never get with turn-based and rarely get with boss battles in general. And, go figure, he'll be the ONE opponent who doesn't come back to harass you three or more times after you beat him.

Day 19 - Picture of a game setting you wish you lived in. )

So, my dad borrowed Dead Space 2 from a friend, and despite that I haven't played DS1 yet, I figured I'd go ahead and play 2 while we have it since I'm already spoiled like whoa for the first game, anyway.

Dude. This game

is a beautiful thing. :| <333

I AM KIND OF IN LOVE WITH IT. obvs I just have something for games involving dismemberment and large amounts of blood.

My sisters also got FFVII, and while I don't have any interest in playing it myself, I am jumping in to watch on occasion, and I gotta say, it's... not what I expected, lol. Aeris is way different than I always perceived her to be from RPing and whatnot -- and I admit, I kind of like everyone so far. PLUS ALL THESE ODD TERMS THAT I'VE PICKED UP OVER THE YEARS ARE STARTING TO MAKE SENSE -- LIKE "SOLDIER" AND "AVALANCHE" AND ALL THAT. Btw, Tao, Jill-muse totes approves of Tifa's "I'LL SMASH THEM" threat to that sleazeball. >BD

Day 17 - Favorite antagonist. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
As if she hadn't already won my heart, I recently discovered that Claire's response after getting resuscitated in Mercs 3D is "Much appreciated!"


For those confused, "Much appreciated" is one of Chris' gratitude!lines in RE5. |3


Day 16 - Game with the best cut scenes. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
SO, I actually found out through someone at Amazon that Best Buy has an awesome deal on Mercs: pre-order it and you get a $10 gift card. Hullo. So I cancelled my pre-orders at Gamestop and ordered them at Best Buy instead, bwahaha. ♥ Hey, man. That's $20 towards my inevitable purchase of Tales of the Abyss in the fall. :| That's srs biznis.

That said, I've been in a gaming funk lately. 8[ I finished Batman: Arkham Asylum (AWESOMEFREAKINGGAMEBTW) and hung around it long enough to get all but the most difficult achievements; I need to get back to Mirror's Edge and Bayonetta, but the former puts me in a bad mood more often than not (my own fault, lmao, since I INSIST on going through without shooting anyone. Very unlike me.), and the latter... idk. It's just. Really feeling more like a chore, the further I go along. It's not hard, but I'm not really enjoying it aside from the occasional "WOO CAPCOM REFERENCE" and "LOL WTF WAS THAT MOVE." It's just so full of male fanservice, and while I normally don't mind (because let's face it, that's just the video game industry in general and I've grown up on it), it's just really obnoxious to the point where I feel like it's going "OH HEY BAYONETTA'S HOT. DID WE MENTION BAYONETTA'S HOT. LET US DEMONSTRATE WHY BAYONETTA'S HOT. DO YOU THINK BAYONETTA'S HOT?" in every aspect of the game. B| Again, I normally just ignore the obvious flaunting of females in my games, but something about this one just irks me. Overall, though, it just hasn't clicked with me like games should.

I'm aware that I need to finish Tales of Vesperia on my profile -- having done it the first and second time on my dad's, so THERE'S A FREE 825 G FOR YA -- but. Ugh. That is one game I do not wanna go through again. If I do, there's no way I'm doing all the extra side BS for costumes and props. I'd just do enough to get the most (easiest) achievements, but aaauuughhhhh Idon'twannaplayitagain. DDDDX It's just so long and tedious and boring in so many areas, especially when you spend more time wandering one area than you do in the Spencer Mansion foyer. v_v If you could turn off the cutscenes, I'd be much more willing to replay it, but I'm lazy and hate even constantly mashing the A button to get through all the dialogue boxes.

I also (STILL) need to start Dead Space; my dad took about 13 hours on his first playthrough, so it's a short game, but I know I won't have time to finish it before the 28th, in which case I won't touch it for another month, at least. |D;

/lol EXCUSES LIKE WOAH. So I've really just been playing RE5!Mercs on and off under the pretense that I'm practicing for Mercs 3D, although my sisters got LEGO Batman and it is seriously so awesome from what we've played so far, hahaha. I keep telling myself I should at least make another go at Chris' story in the original RE, but IT'S HARD AND I'M A WUSS AND HIS STAMINA IN THE ORIGINAL IS NOT WHAT IT IS IN THE REMAKE I keep getting sidetracked like the pseudo-ADHD person I can sometimes be. Instead, I've been burning a lot of time on XNALara, reading, and fanfiction-writing -- the last being a huge improvement activity-wise from a long period of being idle. BUT IT'S SOMETHING.

...And I kind of just answered the meme of the day, actually.

Day 15 - Post a screenshot from the game you're playing right now. )
its_game_time: (ShadowSonic; pwned)
Crappy picture is kinda crappy because I took it with my 3DS, BUT:

/PUNTS THE VERSUS DLC INTO A RIVER I am NEVER PLAYING THAT CRAP AGAIN unless it's just between friends or something.

I finally -- finally -- came to the idiot realization that O HEY WAIT--I THINK JILL'S STAMINA IS LOWER THAN EVERYONE ELSE'S. 8Oa MEBBE THAT EXPLAIN WHY I SHOOT OTHER PEOPLE FIVE TIMES AT POINT BLANK WITH A SHOTGUN TO GET THEM IN A DYING STATE AND THEY ONLY NEED TO SHOOT ME TWICE. So then I look and see that S.T.A.R.S. Chris has the same loadout as BS!Jill, except with a better automatic, so I switch to him and win... 4 out of 7 matches, I think? Which was all I needed to get the achievement. Go figure. v_v And FYI, Chris is now the ninja of the series; I managed to jump through a window as him WITHOUT BREAKING IT. A glitch? No. CHRIS REDFIELD AWESOME IS WHAT THAT WAS.

So YUS, RE5, MvC3, and Soul Calibur are now the games that we have 100% on -- two Capcom games, ironically enough. I've come frustratingly close on several others, but I DO plan to get 100% on Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and I'm starting to think I could manage L4D2. :|

In other news, I've been debating selling my DS Lite since I have a 3DS. I can get a decent price for it on eBay, hopefully more than the average since I have the original box and all the things it came with. Goodness knows I'm scrabbling for school funds, anyway. I hate to see it go after how well it's served me, but ah, well. What can you do?

MEH reflections on all the late Resident Evil announcements and such. Move along. )

On the RP front: concerning [ profile] dissideo... idk, Tao; is it just me, or does it seem like the place has been dying for a long time now, and it's just kinda getting stretched out longer and longer? ;_; I mean. There's only a dozen or so players still there now, and less than two dozen characters, 90% of whom are Final Fantasy. Nothing wrong with that latter point, of course, but. Idkkkk. No offense to the new mods, but ever since the new management took over -- or maybe it was just the end of the last cycle -- I haven't really been feelin' it. Although I guess it doesn't help that almost every character Jill had CR with/every player I knew personally has dropped, aside from Chris and Tifa. I know Cody's been debating dropping for a long time now, but I've been with it so long that I don't want to plus Jill + Tifa is freaking awesome love -- but at the same time I don't want to just kinda hang around and character-squat by putting the minimum effort into it. AUGH IDK. /rant

On a more optimistic and less emotionally torn note... peeps need to be getting over to [ profile] underworldwars, because Jill's starting a friggin' Mercenaries Guild to try and deal with all the people-eating monsters there. :| This may or may not have been indirectly influenced by the approaching Mercs game, idek. But you all totally know you want in on that action, yo. And she's now the only RE character there, to boot.

Day 14 - Current (or most recent) gaming wallpaper. )

Also. That mission in Fable III where the ceiling comes down on you? I experienced a kind of... personal revelation there. More than usual in that game. I figured there HAD to be a cutscene activation and that nothing would really happen to you, but dude. I started panicking like I haven't panicked in a long time, game-wise. :| In that I was shooting and blasting and slashing everything and throwing myself at the door like a mad person and screaming for Wesker and Barry. ...Actually, not that last point, but I was definitely yelling. ._. /CLAUSTROPHOBIC, OKAY

Day 13 - A game you’ve played more than five times. )
its_game_time: (Default)
[ profile] tao_empress! Since you're a fellow Disney Geek, I need some input. One of the upcoming events at [ profile] underworldwars is the following:

The entire Underworld will be changed for this even, when character's wake up the entire Underworld will look like something out of a Disney movie. Character's will find themselves changed as well, suddenly taking on the appearance and personality of various Disney characters. As the event goes on a more sinister twist will begin to unfold as personalities change to match the Disney characters, people will find themselves compelled to act out their new with a darker twist.

Note: An example might be for the first few days a character has the personality/apperance of Ariel from the Little Mermaid, but as time goes on they start to find themselves compelled to act out Hans Christian Andersen's version

NOW. For Jill, my first thought was Helga Sinclair from Atlantis -- both are cool, blonde, and hot, and can use a gun. And have been known to fall from high places because of backstabbing villains. :Db And then backstabbed that villain in turn afterwards. BUT that was just my first thought, and idk what the "drawback" part for her would be. :\ Aside from maybe stealing people's life forces for money. Plus I'd have to canon-review by watching the movie, BUT since I love it, that's not really such a bad thing. So any thoughts on other possibilities?

I'm open to anyone else's opinions, of course -- Tao is just my resident Disney Expert, so she came to mind first.

And [ profile] sabbato! I have all of the effing Versus achievements except for one, so if you and your buddies wanna do some marathon-ing of Team Survivors sometime, I'm available as an extra body. o/

Day 12 - A game everyone should play. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS: Officially the creepiest site ever. :| It uses Google Earth and pretty much any and every source of public information to gather info on anyone and everyone; you can search by a person's name and state and pretty much come up with everything about them -- job, income, house, a friggin' picture of said house, family members, phone number, etc. :|;;; Creeeeeepy. You can go in and take yourself out of the system, which my mom did for all of us, so if you'd like to do the same, go check it out. Again, very creepy.

Secondly: ZOMG BARRY WAS CONFIRMED FOR MERCS 3D. \o/ THE S.T.A.R.S. FAMILY IS OFFICIALLY ALL HERE the important ones, anyway AND THIS IS NOW THE BEST ROSTER EVER, consisting thus far of Chris, Claire, Jill, Wesker, Krauser, HUNK, Rebecca, and Barry, for those not keeping up. If they add anyone else, it's just icing on the cake. I am so, so happy with this lineup. ♥ And come oooon, Capcom. After all the goofy fanservice you gave us in Mercs Reunion, there MUST BE A THROWBACK LINE BETWEEN BARRY AND JILL, FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE. PLEAAAAAASE. EVEN JUST A FLEETING MENTION OF A SANDWICH WOULD KILL ME DEAD.

But oh, Goooood, the Garrador's back. ._______.;;; As if good old Dr. Salvador wasn't enough of a heart attack. Lovely. I'll just hide out on roofs and play sniper in the RE4 village, then. And never without a partner. :|

Can't. Freakin'. Wait.

Bayonetta continues to kill me with its terribly lame and try-too-hard action scenes. But I'm laughing, at least. AND I C U, YURI LOWENTHAL <3333 I'm still loving all the Capcom references and FFFFFF the Resident Evil/Devil May Cry/Viewtiful Joe/Okami all-in-one throwback was hilarious. X'DD VERY CLEVER, GUYS.

Watched the Iron Man movies for the first time. Yeah, it took me that long. I am fail. I ONLY GOT INTO IRON MAN ABOUT A YEAR AGO, OKAY, IF EVEN THAT LONG THAT ASIDE, I loved them. The fight scenes were delightful, and they didn't rely solely on CGI for everything; it was a good blend of that and actual costumes and such, so yes. Very awesome. I haven't gotten around to seeing Thor yet, but I waaaaaant. o/

I've slipped into Summer Reading Mode, courtesy of my local library, so I'll probably do a book tally on here at the end of the summer and list everything I read.

Day 11 - Gaming system of choice. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
FINALS ARE OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR thank God. ._. I never want to hear organic chemistry again as long as I live. Don't wanna talk about it ever.

MOVING ON, summer is now here and so is my list of to-do's.

[ ] Job hunt!
[ ] Finally bake that Captain America cake I've been planning
[ ] Finish Mirror's Edge
[ ] Finish Bayonetta
[ ] Start/finish Dead Space, lmao
[ ] Hunt down the guy who came up with Jill's tenth mission in MvC3 and punch him in the face
[ ] Complete Jill's tenth mission
[ ] Finally finish some dangling fanfics I'M LOOKING AT YOU, FAMILYCRACKFIC(S)
[ ] Do that icon post I've been putting off
[ ] Come up with a decent exercise routine rather than just doing it sporadically/whenever I happen to remember
[ ] Start/finish Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. Maybe.
[ ] LIBRARY. Need to read something. Specifically, look into The Colour of Magic as rec'd by [ profile] alory_shannon.
[ ] Clean the upstairs bathroom :|
[ ] Catch up on tags

Not necessarily in that order, but you get my drift.

Day 9 - Saddest game scene. )
its_game_time: (Wesker; GTFO)
UGGHHHHHH MY EFFING SINUSES. B| My head's felt stuffy and icky ever since Thursday night and I CAN'T SHAKE IT COMPLETELY AUGH.

/whining. Does not feel any better.

I went to Gamestop today to pick up a Phoenix Wright game for the sisters, but they wanted $15 for a used game cartridge with no manual or box. Yeah, no. But since I was over there anyway, I went ahead and pre-ordered two copies of RE: Mercs. And abruptly shot the guy down when he tried to talk me into L.A. Noire. No me gusta Rockstar Games, all right.

Ended up apping at [ profile] underworldwars and was accepted last week, but I'm very glad to see all the revival efforts over at [ profile] dissideo. I HAVE FAITH IN THEM AND THIS GAME. ♥

Also, I love looking at the My Guests thing to see who all visits my LJ. Doubly amusing since I don't recognize half the people, aha.

AHAHAHA AND. AND. While bedridden last week, I happened to spot my Resident Evil: The Umbrella Conspiracy novel on my shelf and thought OH HEY it's been a long, long time since I read that and I've forgotten all of the fail in it, so I'll reread it!

Which I did.

Oh, my God the fail. )

Day 7 - Favorite game couple. )
its_game_time: (Wesker; GTFO)
For the love of everything, hair color should not be an issue of such heavy thought and consideration in apping. YOU KNOW I ALWAYS BACK YOU ON THIS ISSUE, CAPCOM, BUT NOW I'M JUST A LITTLE IRKED AT YOUR COMPLICATIONS.

Day 6 - Most annoying character. )
its_game_time: (Kuzco; OMFG)
I WANT SUMMER TO GET HERE I HATE END-OF-THE-SEMESTER TIME. B| And yet I enjoy it at the same time, so idk.

IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN TRAILER, DO SO. DO SO DO SO DO SO. Capcom seems bent on giving out freakin' awesome trailers lately, and THIS cinematic trailer... just. Wow. It actually managed to take my attention from Mercs. :| I don't even LIKE Kazuya or Ryu, but sd;skdfsldkfs;lk IT IS SO, SO MINDBLOWING. I'm pretty sure I'll get the Tekken x SF version myself, but STILL. So, so awesome. :|

Also, I will most likely probably app at [ profile] underworldwars since... it seems I've managed to pull in a Wesker and Chris without actually being in the game yet, ahaha. |D;

Day 5 - Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were). )
its_game_time: (Wesker; GTFO)
So this month's Nintendo Power had a hy00j Resident Evil Mercs spread that I love and can't stop staring at; they claim that there's a final roster of eight characters.

So I got to thinking.

Six have been OFFICIALLY revealed -- Chris, Jill, Claire, HUNK, Wesker, Krauser. That leaves two. Rebecca was recently leaked, and that is TOTES BARRY'S SHADOW IN THE OFFICIAL PROMO POSTER. So if NP is right and those are the only characters--

--I am going to die laughing. If Mr. Leon Poster-Boy Kennedy doesn't make it in? That is hilarious. And I'm a jerk and kind of glad because I am just SO SICK of all his fangirls and fanboys acting like he's the greatest creation evarrrrr. I love the dork myself, but come on. For every mention of RE, you get a hundred "ZOMG LEON ROXORZ!" gushings, and I am TIRED of it, and I just. Would find it downright hilarious and awesome if he got cut out of this game. Not gonna lie. HE HAS DAMNATION AND HIS RE4 RE-RELEASE, ANYWAY. Plus he's not dead. I'd just love to see the Internet have a conniption and explode over it, personally. But I WILL genuinely be sad if there's only eight characters total. I was hoping for Sheva and Billy. 8C And Carlos. I will take any of them over Leon, really. DLC PLZ BUT it's still awesome anyway.

Ahaaaaaa I'll just. Be over here snickering to myself and continuing to be a jerk.

THAT ASIDE, I'm keeping an eye on [ profile] underworldwars because it is cool and I am still always craving action. :| <3 Don't know if I'll make a transition yet.

And while we finally got 100% of the Achievements in MvC3, I STILL have yet to get Jill's tenth mission but I'VE COME WITHIN THREE MOVES OF DOING SO AND GOSH DARN IT I WILL GET IT YET. >8|

30 Days of Video Games Meme: Day 3 - A game that is underrated. )
its_game_time: (ShadowSonic; pwned)
If you haven't seen Capcom's trailer celebrating RE's 15th anniversary yet, go watch. It's epic and cool and WESKER'S NARRATION IS SO CLASSICALLY CHEESY THAT IT IS TOTES 100% RESIDENT EVIL FROM START TO FINISH. XDD They totally should have finished it with "I'LL GIVE YOU S.T.A.R.S.!" Ahhhhhh, I can't wait for these next games, although I realized that we have THREE new ones in the next year, and none of 'em are even RE6, ahaha. Then again, I'm in no rush to see fandumb hate all over it, so whatever. Speaking of, I had an interesting/lol wut convo with my mom on the subject recently.

RE5 spoilers )

And then there was when I was playing Versus the other day FINALLY GOT TWO OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS AW YEAH THREE MORE TO GO and I caught sight of a Wesker following me:

Me: :| Niiiiiice Wesker...
Mom: *doing stuff on her computer in the background, but suddenly snerks* Wesker? Nice?
Me: ....Oh, yeah. |D

And my dad's first reaction to learning about Operation Raccoon City? "I wanna play as HUNK!"

We. Are an American family. What can I say.

Day 2 - Your favorite character. )
its_game_time: (Dorky!Peter is love.)
Y'know, I admit that several characters in MvC3 have cheap and/or unfair moves, but none are as cheap and/or unfair as Ryu/Akuma's arsenal. B| They break out of things in the STUPIDEST ways and augh I will probably never play a Street Fighter game because of them. B|||| Latest case being that I threw Sparda at Akuma -- Sparda. Everyone who plays that game should know by now how that thing flies. -- and the JACKASS KICKED IT OUT OF THE AIR. Wwwwwwwwwtfh. >| NO ONE ELSE CAN DO THAT, I'M SURE. JUST HIM. And probably Ryu because IDC what anyone says, those two are the same. If it were that alone, I wouldn't spaz so much. But considering that's AFTER he kicks through Trish's electricity, Wesker's bullets, and Spidey's webs? And probably more that I'm not thinking of. Yeah, no. GTFO. No one's managed to knock Jill out of her Machine Gun Spray yet, but the day it happens, it will probably be because Akuma kicked her in the face. Cheaply. After her hyper already started and he somehow MAGICALLY went through twenty bullets to get to her. 'B|


And now to jump on the bandwagon with the meme that everyone's doing: the 30 Days of Video Games Meme. |D
