→ mom got approved for some credit care six month payment thing for the clinic we're going to for $2500 worth of coverage for my oral surgery
→ my papaw is sending up some money for the surgery as well, with the single stipulation that my father has to pay for the rest. So I guess we're not using that $2500?! IDK I am so confused.
→ my papaw is coming up for Thanksgiving. This is a Big Deal. My papaw has not set foot outside of southern Alabama in his entire life that I know of. I SENSE MANY HEADACHES THIS THANKSGIVING. So if I suddenly lose my mind the last week of November and people I promised cookies to never get them, it's because I finally lost it and went on a rampage. You heard it here first.
→ I somehow managed to sleep ten hours straight, what is wrong with me. I DON'T SLEEP TEN HOURS WHAT HAPPENED
→ If you need to smile, watch this /jumps into every box ever
→ This is kind of old news (about a month old) but I haven't seen anyone talk about it. Line tests for Avatar: Legend of KORRA. BITCH IS BAMF WITHOUT THE BENDING.
→ Disneyyyyyy STILL EXCITED FOR TANGLED AND NO ONE CAN MAKE ME FEEL OTHERWISE. Also OHMYGOD?! CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, I MISSED YOU SFM. I'm really excited for this and I can't even explain why
→ Pixar what what what are you doing. I CAN'T ACCEPT THIS. WE'RE DONE.
→ To rinse that teaser from your mind, Team Four Star is doing Hellsing Ultimate Abridged and it is fabulous. I laughed so fucking hard.
I have not forgotten my video game meme, I was just distracted.
IN THE PAST: Days 1-10
Day 11 - Gaming system of choice.
I have a decent number of systems (ColecoVision, NES, SNES, PS2, XBOX 360, DS, PSP), but out of all of them? I play my PS2 the most. I have a much wider variety of games in my collection to play and I just thoroughly enjoy them more than anything. It was also the first console I ever got that I didn't have to share with my brother. I still have one of the first gen PS2s and the only problem I have is that it sometimes doesn't read PS1 games (Chrono Cross NOOOOOO ;A;). But it's definitely my most used system and I love it to pieces.
Day 12 - A game everyone should play.
These games are cute, mindless, hilarious, and just downright fun to play when you're having a bad day. What better way to relieve stress than to roll up penguins that screech? I MEAN REALLY. Not to mention it's a game that pretty much anyone can play no matter your gaming preference. Even my mother, who hates video games, will sit and watch me play this game for as long as I'm playing and laugh so hard at all the characters' reactions to being rolled up. It's just fun and the music is catchy as hell. (you are now singing the Katamari theme in your head. manually.)
Day 13 - A game you’ve played more than five times.
Legend of Dragoon was my first JRPG when I got my ps2 and it will always hold a special place in my heart. ;_;b I JUST really love the characters (except Shana) and the story and how it progresses as you continue from disc to disc. The characters are memorable (whether that's good or bad is subjective) and most are easy to sympathize with. Yes, it does take a while to play through and yes, the additions attacks get frustrating at times, and yes, you will want to punch the shit out of some of the characters for being stupid. But that's any game, right? I play it a lot because I know everything that'll happen, so I don't have to think much when I play through it. But I do love it and I'll never stop playing it over and over again.
Day 14 - Current (or most recent) gaming wallpaper.
yeah I went there.
Day 15 - Post a screenshot from the game you’re playing right now.
PORTAL I am slowly but surely making my way through this game. It's the main reason I even bought a 360, I just have to have a lot of patience to play it in one sitting. But I Love it so much.
Final Fantasy IX I SIT AND PLAY THIS GAME ALL THE TIME, but it takes so long to play and, again, I have to have a lot of patience to sit through it for a long time in one sitting.
Devil May Cry 4 THIS IS TAKING ME FOREVER BECAUSE I'M STUCK IN ONE PART AND I CAN'T GET NERO TO FUCKING JUMP TO THE LEDGE I NEED TO GET AT MOTHERFUCKER.
Kingdom Hearts was originally a canon review so I could try to play Sora, but now I'm just replaying for the hell of it.
Kingdom Hears: Birth By Sleep the sole reason I bought a PSP in the first place DON'T JUDGE ME
Final Fantasy: Dissidia a perk of having a PSP is playing Dissidia, which I'm really only passively playing right now? I'm stuck at a point and have been for a while, so I tend to just jump onto arcade mode and beat people up as Zidane.
Day 16 - Game with the best cut scenes.
I'm actually really fond of the Chrono Cross cutscenes. They're usually very seamless with the gameplay and they just... work well. They're very nice to look at, especially considering the time the game came out (1999 Japan, 2000 United States). I just really love the direction and cinematography of the cutscenes. ._. /ALONE FOREVER
Day 17 - Favorite antagonist.
WHAT A DICK.
But no seriously, Devil May Cry 3 gave a lot of backstory development to Dante and I love the way Vergil fits into that story. I also personally love how well he can be adapted to LJRP throughout various interpretations (even if I don't agree with a lot of those interpretations). He's an interesting character to analyze and despite all his crazy, he's definitely sympathetic in his motives. It was just the means he went through that were cray cray. 8|
Day 18 - Favorite protagonist.
I cannot even explain to you why I adore Heather so much for her role in the Silent Hill games. She had the most normal reactions to the things going on around her than any SH protagonist I've seen (note: I have not played Homecoming, 5, or Shattered Memories) and she's just really down to earth. She wants simple things: to live a happy life with her father. That's all she wants. And then shit goes to hell for reasons that are beyond her control and she just says "OH YOUR GOD" and rolls up her sleeves because, dammit, she wants to go back to a normal life. I adore her and I just. AAAHHHH /holds SH3 close
Day 19 - Picture of a game setting you wish you lived in.
I mean, there are some beautiful utopian-esque game settings out there but I can't really... see myself as wanting to live in any of them.
Day 20 - Favorite genre.
This is actually really hard because I have a pretty even split in the genre of games I own, but I'm always drawn more to the survival horror when it comes to conversation and general fandom involvement. I love JRPGs, but I flock to games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil when I want to joke around with people. They're fun games, they're usually very nice to look at, I love the soundtracks, and they tend to lend themselves to humor much more easily than JRPGs and FPS do. (Not to say that they don't? I just don't see it as much as I do for survival horrors) I just really love them and the stories and the characters and the fandoms that keep me involved and I can't explain it any more than that.
