trickster: (05) apparently a real thing? I'm kinda surprised.

Not much data on it other than achievements, a cash shop, and cloud saves. I am very curious what the achievements are, the cash shop seems kinda useless to me, and cloud saves just makes me LOL for stupid, stupid reasons.

I do wish we could get info on whether the translation is redone/straightened out for this version. I'd buy it just for that, honestly. (FFT's new translation was so worth re-purchasing. I have no regrets.) If it's not fixed, then... eh. I'm not sure.

I'm playing Crisis Core for the first time.

I... I like it. The music, the graphics, the voice acting, Sephiroth, all that jazz. I'm only at the Modeoheim mission (ch. 5?), but it's been a pretty fun game so far.

This certainly makes all those times I've protested the existence of this game kinda awkward. /)_(\

It looks like I'll be able to do my internship early this year -- in fall instead of waiting 'til spring. That means I'll only have one class next semester, which gives me plenty of leeway to add on another class if it turns out I need another to graduate.

I'm very paranoid about this. I've fallen into the cracks of this university's system so many times I'm, like, on edge about another roadblock coming up. I've already gotten into a small panic over an upper division class that's supposed to count for general upper division credit, but isn't showing that way on the computer. I hope, hope, hope, hope it still counts (and my advisor said it would) but JUST IN CASE. Open schedule next semester. Gonna get it done, yes.

Been doing nothing but going back and playing Dissidia Duodecim again. I still haven't finished all of Cycle 13 yet, which is a shame for me. I just like to level everyone up to 30 before tackling the Impulse Shade chapters. (;A;) I also bought Prologus from the PSN store, which got me Aerith as an assist-only character. She's really useless, honestly, but oh well. My curiosity is satisfied. ...I also ended up buying some extra costumes for other characters. Four of them, I think.

Once again, Square-Enix gets the best of me. And my wallet. OTL

I can't stop smiling every time I see this video.

Dissidia Music Group (hand-drawn)

I can't find the same video on YouTube, so here's a link to the NicoViewer version. No registration necessary to view... I think. Let me know if it doesn't work -- I think there might be another alternative out there.

Blog surfing again -- it's possible that I'm just horrifically late in learning about this, but there's a Black Rock Shooter game in the works? What's that supposed to be about? I don't remember the OVA being really deep or anything, so. :\a

EL SHADDAI POSTCARDS this is awesome and so hilarious. I love this goddamn meme so much it's just laksjdflaskdjf. Also LOL I want that Enoch card. SO BEAUTIFUL. そんなポーズで大丈夫か?

EDIT: Caved in and downloaded them. I am such a sad little person.

The whole KAT-TUN plagiarism thing made it to the forums, of course. I think my favorite comment there is KAT-TUN 「歌ってみた」. That whole ordeal is rather unfortunate, so I've been trying not to get into it.

Which games to remake? Personally, I don't really see a point in remaking FF8 or FF9 -- not because I dislike the entire second half of FF8 or anything, but it's just kind of redundant. I imagine you could probably add voices, but otherwise the characters were in proportion when wandering around towns and the FMVs are still good looking imo. Not much to do with it.

FF7... you know, despite my apprehension, I'd probably buy it if they remade it. So I probably shouldn't say too much.

That survey is kinda suspect, anyway. EHRGEIZ ARE YOU SERIOUS isn't that called Dissidia? Did anyone buy it for any other reason other than lol FF7 characters? Was it popular in Japan? Do people want to see Sephiroth's hair flowing magically in the wind as he facedives into the sand in order to grab the flag? Because if there's one thing Dissidia is lacking, it'd be beachtime fun. DEAD OR ALIVE HAS IT, SO CAN DISSIDIA. Where's my all Final Fantasy cast volleyball minigame?! >T

Personally, I think it'd be really rockin' to see a Suikoden (I or II) remake on the PS3 with awesome 2D graphics. Maybe like Odin Sphere or something. I'd really love more games like that.

Every time I go on AIM I can't help but smile.

Because, uh.

One of the tabs is called Lifestream.

And I am easily amused.

I saw the Professor Layton and the Unwound Future commercial on TV today. Thought it was kinda cute.

Still need to get the game, but I'm debating whether to get that or Last Window -- the Hotel Dusk sequel. It doesn't look like Last Window is heading to the US, so maybe I'll nab that first.

Finally got Dissidia. Favorite voices so far: Cecil, Golbez, and Onion Knight. Least favorite so far: Cloud and Squall. I know they're supposed to sound kinda tough or cool, but they just end up being really flat to me. idk if that's on purpose or not. At least Squall sounds younger in English than he does in Japanese; I've seen some complaints that he sounds too old for his age.

Also, Cloud's lines tend to be Shatner'd. Kind of annoying. Stop channeling Yuna, Cloud.

Tidus' voice is both less obnoxious and yet still irritating. Also, how does anyone use him? I just have the worst timing when it comes to pulling off his moves. :T

I'll probably end up using Cecil as my main.

Jecht manages to beat me very soundly, very often.

Finally ordered a new tablet. Can't wait to use it; I think I've really lost my touch at drawing. I don't like the way any of my doodles turn out at all, lately.

Applied for graduation this spring. Here's hoping I can pull it off!

Uuuughghghgh, I don't know if I have a sensitive nose or what but. Whoever teaches the class before JUST 360 has some serious odor problems. It bothers me to no end and lingers for the longest time (or I just get used to the smell, whichever comes first). The worst part is that the room is full of windows that can't be opened. It's like a trap or something.

I have suddenly gone back to revisiting Final Fantasy stuff (primarily 7~10). I blame Pixiv and my stupid, stupid curiosity. From Pixiv it's a slippery slope to Nicodouga so I ended up watching a bunch of stupid Dissidia MADs. The ones I liked in particular were pretty much just someone taking the audio clips and messing with them. I am a sucker for those.

Links under the cut. )

Anyhow. This is TGS week, right? Sounds like there's quite a few games already announced. New Ace Attorney Investigations and another Dissidia. The third Professor Layton is already out too, isn't it? I'll need to get that.

Ahhhh... I have no life. orz
