Nothing in particular

In all honesty, I don't have much to blog about. I did just watch a dubbed version of the 5th Lone Wolf & Cub movie, and I did catch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull last night, but I really don't have much to blog about at the moment. A little worn out.

I will, however, keep my word to a Japanese blogger (spammer) named BunBunGirl, who has recently been checking out my blog. She has a blog about Japanese pop culture (a habit of spamming her blog across dozens of message boards like some mindless bot), and if you're literate in Japanese, it looks like it might (not) be quite informative (as in, not at all.) I'm not, so it really doesn't say much for me, but I'll be the first to say that my language skills stink. So, please (don't) check her blog out if Japanese pop culture from a Japanese perspective is up your alley. (Actually, it looks like she's either added a translation tool to her blog, or else I've been completely blind.)

Who knows, I might have a new blog friend out of this. (No, not really.)

Threats of the Galaxy

Well, this is neither here, nor there, but it is an update.

I snagged this the other day:It's basically a Monster Manual for Star Wars Saga Edition, and seems to be worth it's weight in gold... which probably isn't much as the book is pretty light. It is, however, pretty useful and will help my future SW game out a fair bit. There are a bit of errors in it, but they're par for the course with RPGs these days, especially one with as little resources behind it as this one.

One day later...

Oh yeah, I actually finished "The Journey" later that night, clocking in at about 96 hours, and have now moved on to "The Answer." I expect that one to go about 40 to 45 hours.

Plus, I'm hooked on fansubs of the Persona -trinity soul- anime series, which is a sequel to Persona 3.
I'm so snagging this when it gets licensed over here.

Now to get back to revamping my Star Wars Saga Edition game. Threats of the Galaxy, you will be mine.

Gah, I am such a geek.

Two weeks later...

Yep, still going. I'm at 90+ hours at the moment of this rest break.

I'm at the final boss fight for "The Journey", and then I have "The Answer" to go on with.

I love the game, but at the same time, it's pretty creepy and that's not creepy in the 'spooky' variety. Basically, on top of being Buffy meets Final Fantasy, it's also a dating sim of sorts. Basically, the whole thing is an exercise in male otaku wish fulfillment. Basically, nearly every female you meet has the hots for you and, after a series of unintentionally cynical social episodes, sleeps with you... including your 'composition' teacher, whom you're talking to via an MMO and is unaware that you are the object of her obsession. (Although, I never got the chance to take that one all the way... and I think I need a shower now.)

See what I mean? Creepy.

Fun, and addictive, game though.

So, say what you will.


I have been doing other stuff, too. So, here's a short media rundown:

Watching: Independence Day, AvP: Alien vs. Predator (Unrated), Fullmetal Alchemist vol. 8 to 13, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa, Cloverfield, Zebraman, Shogun Assassin 4: Five Fistfuls of Gold, G-Saviour, Smallville season 7, Battlestar Galactica season 4, and Persona -trinity soul-.

Listening (to): Various Coast to Coast AM mp3s and the Order 66 Podcast.

Reading: Star Wars Saga Edition

Playing: (see above)

So, I've been sick, stressed out, and generally depressed for the past few days. Good thing I've been able to get a little enjoyment out of things.

For the record...

My reason for little content is a little work, a little depression, and metric tonne of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES. I haven't been hooked on a game like this in ages, if ever.
