Gaming stuff, because I don't post here enough [Feb. 8th, 2013|01:30 am]
Space Opera Symphony
So PSN is offering a bunch of old Final Fantasy games at $5 apiece

So I grabbed FF7 (which I never did finish on emulation) and FF9 (which I've been meaning to replay for a long time, but I don't think I have a PSX memory card anymore). I'm feeling pretty good about it. Been needing something new to play since I finished TTYD (Pit of 100 Trials and all) a couple weeks ago.

I do still need a new portable game I can bring to school with me, so I'm glad Project X Zone is coming out in the US this year.

So I got a new car this week and it's got some neat stuff my last car didn't have. Most notably a CD player, so I don't have to listen to blowhards on the radio. And it reads data CDs just as well as music CDs, so I can cram 3+ hours of listenin' onto a single CD and be happy forever. Got a very nice deal on it, too.

Meanwhile in football news,

(Longest post in over a year, feel free to go "tl;dr" and skip it, it's just random rambling pretty much)

Man, I made 10 posts in my LJ all year (not counting this one). There was a time when I would easily do that many in one week. I guess I don't have a lot to post about, but even if I did, there are so few people left who still use LJ, so I feel like why even bother. No, I haven't migrated to Dreamwidth or Tumblr or whatever else -- though I'm considering it. I still post my arena stuff on LJ, so I'm still around for now.

Really though it was a pretty uneventful year, my life's pretty much in the same spot it was a year ago. Still doing the school thing, still living at home, still single. Basically I'm still in a rut but at least I'm slowly moving out of it. There was RPXmeet, but I'm not sure anyone who still reads this even knows what RPX is. Oh and I'm trying to get back to writing. There's this old unfinished story I started writing yeeeears ago, so I'm going back and giving it a re-write. I'm roughly halfway through it so far.

I have been discovering that it's better to replay old games I really enjoyed, rather than impulsively blow $40 on new games. I think I bought maybe one new game all year (New SMB 2), and it was good but not great. Thought about Sticker Star, heard it was similarly "okay", and so I've been replaying Thousand-Year Door instead. I also got some extra RAM as a birthday gift, so my PS1 emulator runs a looooot smoother, so I've been seeing what's there that I should pick back up. I never did finish FF7.

Thought about streaming some emulated video games at some point, but even with the extra RAM there's too much lag and there's issues with the sound. I might be able to do it from another computer, though, if I can get all the necessary files and such copied over. Maybe.

So yeah. Happy new year, everyone!

When I draw, it makes me want to write, and when I write, it makes me want to draw

So here's a thing I wrote (it's tied in to a larger story so some context is missing) and here's a related thing I drew

Today I learned that the "squealing Sasuke Uchiha fangirl" is not just a stereotype. It was terrifying.

Question [Mar. 18th, 2012|05:06 pm]
Space Opera Symphony
If I'm checking out OCRemix's Mega Man X album on Youtube, why do the "related videos" include a 23-minute anti-Semitic screed by David Duke and a 50-minute anti-Islam video from a similar nutcase?

Last week I mentioned that I was holding out for a bundle of some sort before I got a 3DS and Mario 3D Land

Today Dan showed me this: http://mynintendonews.com/2011/11/21/nintendo-3ds-nintendo-of-america-announce-two-limited-edition-nintendo-3ds-bundles

[Current Music |Kirby's Return to Dream Land - Another Dimension]

As of today I've had this LJ for ten years. It's always fun grating to go back and see what a dork I was in '01. I'd post pretty much anything regardless of whether anyone gave a shit, often packaged with emoticons I wouldn't be caught dead using nowadays.

Mario 3D Land came out yesterday, I really thought about getting it with a 3DS, but I'm not sure I'm ready to shell out $200-plus at this point in time. I'm hoping we get a bundle somewhere down the line, or failing that, I can earn some more cash so I can buy a 3DS without breaking the bank.

So instead of that, I bought Kirby's Return to Dream Land last week. Lots of fun, mostly been playing that and Madden '12 lately when I have the time.

School is still going well. I'm not gonna be done for another year and a half, but once I am, I dunno if I wanna go into the workforce or transfer to a four-year school. Transferring would get me a better degree and a better chance for a good job, but on the other hand I will be pushing 31 and kind of desperate to be making money, having my own place, all that fun stuff I've been striving toward for a few years now. I guess I'll see what the job market is like in 2013, doesn't seem like it's gonna be getting much better.

I guess that's it

Today I saw someone wearing this shirt and listening to music from the Scott Pilgrim game

It was pretty neat

Also I finished a paper for my politics class so I should have time to actually do some stuff the rest of the fall.

I'm sure it's all building toward something but for now I still feel unaccomplished and pathetic
