I hope everyone had a good New Year Day!

I don't really have any New Year's resolutions or anything, but I do need to write or draw more things this year. I'm getting really out of practice. :T

I ended up spending quite a bit of money on the Steam Christmas sale, but the game I'm looking forward to playing is Darksiders. It looks pretty fun, it's another one of those games that uses Biblical characters and whatever. I hope it plays well enough on my laptop.

The one game that took me by surprise this sale was The Binding of Isaac. I've played Super Meat Boy and didn't like it so much, probably because it's ridiculously challenging. But Isaac is a lot more fun to play, even though it's still stupidly difficult. I just like experimenting with all the pills and stuff.

I also finally got LIMBO. That game is super atmospheric, wow. Kinda freaky, too. (THE SPIDER. THE BRAIN BUGS.) The design style just adds to the whole thing. Love it.

My goal is to finish these games, damn it. I need to stop starting games and leaving them hanging. I'm pretty sure the last game I finished was El Shaddai. 8|a

... ... .....so I just downloaded Hatoful Boyfriend.

Yes, the pigeon dating game. If it makes it any better, they do have human portraits. We just. Get to see the pigeons only. At all times. ...apparently they have nice voices though?

...am I really going to put off getting homework done just to satisfy my curiosity over pigeon boyfriends? Yes. Yes, I am. Don't judge me.

Download the game here.
English patch is over here.

...therefore, I shall post.

Ky Kiske again, but this time it's a coloring of a doujinshi panel. Image. Box. Thing.

Yeah. I'm on my Winter Break, can't you tell? 8D

Uh. Not very big images, but I was using a tutorial and managed to mess that up a little and ended up winging it halfway through. I did learn a new way to use the brushes, so that was cool! It's just a little time-consuming. It'd probably help if I actually programmed commands into the tablet, though. /idiot

SHADING IS STILL MY NEMESIS and I also totally half-assed the background, if it wasn't obvious. ONE DAY I WILL MAKE A DECENT BACKGROUND but not now.

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.
