Best Tales Game Ever.

It was a wild, emotional ride, and they really nailed the female protagonist. I cried, I loved every single character, and the character development was so well-done! It runs on even the lamest of PCs, so please get it if you can! Join me in my pool of tears and joy!

Here's a short preview: watch episode 5 and episode 6 if you're still on the fence. It's good give it a chance pls ;~~; The rest of the episodes have nothing to do with the game, and... have massive spoilers, so maybe don't watch those, hahaha.

I am so tired I will go back to speep.
northeasternwind: (LMAO)
I have made a terrible mistake and bought Hitman 2016 for half off.

It's amazing. I love it. I love how little Agent 47 cares about basically everything except killing his targets. I love how deadpan he is in all his ridiculous disguises. I love how the most emotion I've seen him show so far is when Dalia hands him a bottle of cyanide and he goes "Good choice c:"

And I also love how that guy at the end pointed out that he does actually care about Diana and how it's implied he and the Shadow Client used to be close friends when they were small but 47 doesn't remember :c


There's also the fact that the game revolves around murdering people for money, but I... basically do that in every game anyway, so it feels less notable than it should maybe.  The point is that I need favorite characters who are not paid killers. (Allegedly there are a couple previous games about 47 being ashamed about being an assassin, but one is apparently not that good and the other has dated graphics. I WILL INEVITABLY PLAY THEM BOTH LET'S BE HONEST.)

Dishonored 2 came out! My favorite character wasn't in it but it was a lot of fun and had a good story! There were WAAAAY more women than in the last Dishonored and we got to learn more about Delilah! D: Poor girl. Basically, she and Empress Jessamine were half sisters, with Delilah being the illegitimate child. Once while they were playing Jessamine broke something and blamed it on Delilah, and Delilah and her mother were thrown out on the streets to live in poverty.

The sad thing is that this happened while they were kids. Like... kids lie. They blame things on each other. That's what they do. Delilah has no choice but to hate Jessamine (and by extension her daughter Emily, whom you play as), but when you get down to it the fault should lie with the adults who thought being thrown out to die was a suitable punishment for a small child breaking something. It's just that they're all dead by the time Dishonored 2 happens, so that just leaves Emily to bear the brunt of Delilah's pain...

D: You have the option of letting her live out her fantasy of becoming Empress and everyone loving her harmlessly (you stick her in a magical painting. She was going to transpose it onto the real world, but instead she just stays in the painting while the real world goes on without her), which seems like the least she deserves for all the crap she's been through. I MEAN SHE'S A TERRIBLE PERSON WHO HAS DONE TERRIBLE THINGS, but like. Give a woman a break maybe.

ALSO I'M YELLING ABOUT BILLIE. She just wants her assassin dad back. ...Why are all my favorite characters assassins? I can't believe I have a type and it is murderers. Send help.

So yes, that's what I've been up to. Hit up my tumblr for more Hitman jokes. Where did 47 learn to play the drums. How does he know how to do all that yoga. Why does he need to use the bathroom. I have questions.

Oh! One more thing. It's more socially acceptable to post lots of quick, pointless updates on tumblr, so here's my personal updates tag if you're curious. There's... a lot of excited yelling.

So I discovered that I've sort of fallen in love with another demon king SOBBING.

It's Abaddon. He has no redeeming qualities. Even his girlfriend hates him. But I love him. Cry.

I'm gonna write a fic where he doesn't become a demon and the apocalypse happens differently sob sob.

Send help I'm collecting demon lords.
northeasternwind: (Littlefoot hug)

As for some updates, my cousins came over for Christmas and New Year's! ...I got sick on New Year's! I'm still coughing a little, as usual! We got a new doctor (because our old one of twenty years died bless his kind soul I miss him) and he says it's probably either asthma or acid reflux. ...I kind of hope it's asthma, because I strongly suspect I will be forced to give up chocolate if it's acid reflux. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it is...

I'm taking the semester off and searching for a job. So if you see me online at times when I shouldn't be, that's probably why. I'm not skipping class, honest!

I got into Elite Dangerous, which... have I posted about that here? It's a space game that's described as Han Solo Simulator If Han Solo Never Met Luke Skywalker, but I've never seen Star Wars so I couldn't tell you how accurate that is. You can go to every star in the Milky Way if you want, it's pretty fun.

I'M STILL ON A ROLL WITH DARKSIDERS FANFICTION. I've posted like... nine so far, and I'm almost done with my multichapter one! That'll be my first finished multichapter fanfiction ever! Also I have a new RP partner who is terrific and lightning-fast with the boomerang tags, and I've discovered that I actually make a better Abaddon than Uriel. Oops.

Speaking of that, I'm at [community profile] castle_perrault  with Uriel and Dhaos! It's only a dressing room, so come join us if you want! We have a bat!Batman...

Speaking of Batman, the Batman cartoon from 2003 is on Netflix and as a result it's gaining popularity on Tumblr. WHICH MAKES ME SO HAPPY. We need more Batman reboots like that, man.

SO IN OTHER WORDS NOTHING MUCH IS HAPPENING but I'm almost done with Arkham Knight and I will probably give an update on that when I finish it. It's been lots of fun so far!
northeasternwind: (Shanoa)
It's getting better though! On Tuesday Tales of Zestiria comes out for the PC, which I have preordered. That means I also get Symphonia PC for free, so I shall livestream it and get all my other friends into the Tales series as well. Muahahaha. Anyway, I'm really, super excited for Tales of Zestiria-- my first Tales since Vesperia! ...I also watched about five minutes of Tales of Xillia 2, and now I want to play that as well HAHAHA sob I need a PS3.

I made an RP account for Uriel from Darksiders (an arbitrary choice, since there are already like five of each Horseman around) and my regard for her skyrocketed accordingly. She spends the entire game doing nothing but getting in your way and trying to kill you, and then in about two seconds in the ending she solves every single problem she helped create alongside several she had nothing to do with.

Out of context it sounds hilarious: she murders the hero and then starts the apocalypse, and it's one of the most triumphant moments in the series XD She swore a Death Oath against War earlier in the game because she thought he'd started the apocalypse and gotten her crush killed, and when War informs her that it was in fact her crush who did that (and then became a demon haha sob) she does a complete 180 and never looks back. She gets over that guy so quickly XD; And then she fulfills her Death Oath while the Watcher is torturing War, and then shatters the Seventh Seal, starting the apocalypse properly and resurrecting War/giving him his power back. It's great. Uriel is great.

ANYWAY an idle thought resulted in a full-blown AU fanfic about Uriel and her crush basically re-enacting the tale of Beren and Luthien from Tolkien mythos, which I am still in the process of writing. Fortunately the tale gives me a pretty good outline, which makes writing the thing a whole lot easier, ahahahaha. Should be 16 chapters. I'm on chapter 6. It's 9000 words long. I'm really on a roll here. It's so nice to be writing again.

Hm, what else... Provided I pay attention, I should have less trouble keeping my grades up than usual this semester. XD; So that's good! I think things have been going pretty well for me lately. The big thing happening is Tales of Zestiria right now, so if I post again expect some of that next time XD;
northeasternwind: (Default)
I feel like a goldfish. My attention flying from one fandom to another. About a month ago a franchise called Darksiders was ridiculously on sale, and since I'd heard good things about it I got it and then put off playing it until... a couple weeks ago?

It has totally swallowed my life.

Images under the cut, because it's easier. And funnier. )

...So, er. yes. That is what I've been up to lately. They're actually not very story-heavy games, especially the first one, but bizarrely it seems they've managed to get me hooked with so little! Although the novel helped...

EDIT: Oh yeah, and one of the characters in the first game is voiced by Mark Hamill. IT'S THE JOKER.

For my music, see this incredible video featuring it and a feat of meticulous planning and patience.

E3 things!

E3 is so great and technically it hasn't even started yet.

I watched the entire Nintendo World Championships live, which, as you may have heard, was absolutely great. Whoever designed those Super Mario Maker levels was totally twisted and evil. There was yelling. LOLOLOL.

Next up was Bethesda's first E3 appearance, and man, they did not disappoint! I've never played Doom, but they announced Dishonored 2 with a trailer featuring... grown-up Emily! My little baby! ;~~~; Apparently things have gone pear-shaped for her again and she's out to either set it right or get revenge. They said that they picked an ending from the first game, and I highly suspect it was the worse High Chaos ending (although it's possible for Emily to die in High Chaos, which is... obviously not the case here) because The Outsider asks her if she deserves anything Corvo won for her when she was TEN. SHE WAS TEN. It's not her fault if Corvo was a bloodthirsty murderer XD;

That bums me out because I always play Low Chaos and I like the idea of Corvo the 'Assassin' Who Didn't Actually Kill a Single Person After Everything He'd Been Through (I enjoy non-lethal playthroughs), but... Emily. As long as she gets a happy ending in Low Chaos, I'll be happy.

Also, I wasn't interested in Fallout until they talked about Fallout 4. Now I'm super excited. What have they done to me.

I didn't watch Ubisoft's presentation (or Nintendo's. POOR SAKURAI. He works so hard...), but we did get the new Mass Effect's title: Mass Effect Andromeda. Yooooo.

And. Sony. SONY.  FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.  Never having played the original game to completion, I need to resist the temptation to get a PS4, despite the growing number of games I want on it. MMMMMMMPH.  Also, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus series game. E3 has seriously been great so far.

In Tolkien news, I recently discovered and am currently crying over the House of Feanor/Finwe in general. Feanor why ):

Classes and exams are all over! I'm not sure I did so well, but for a season I am free! And my sister is back from her dorm until August, so that is always nice. She's moving out into her apartment with her friends. Such a big girl.

I did end up getting my meds back, finally. I'm on half dose for two weeks while I get used to it all over again, in an attempt to prevent the whole Five Days of No Sleep thing that happened last time. Man, I've known not being able to sleep, but I don't think I'd known the true meaning of the word "insomnia" until that week. Dealing with it on a regular basis must be awful.

I continue to fall out of Tolkien trees and hit every branch on the way down, this time due to Shadow of Mordor, which I got because it was on sale with the Season Pass for $25 (without the Season Pass was $24. I think that's not a bad deal!). It's about an original character named Talion who's captain of the Rangers of the Black Gate, and takes place after The Hobbit but before The Lord of the Rings. Talion and his son and wife die in an orc attack on the gate, but Talion wakes up in Mordor with the help of an amnesiac elven wraith, who claims they were cursed by the Black Hand of Sauron and banished from death. They share Talion's body and go on a quest to release the curse, but then, well, spoilers.

Shadow of Mordor spoilers! )
northeasternwind: (Yggdrasill)
I, er, misplaced my prescription, so I have to get a new one. I've been without my meds for a couple weeks now, I think? So far no disasters (I almost had a panic attack, but I didn't! I was so glad!) but my inability to motivate myself to do even fun things I want to do has returned, and I'm not looking forward to handling actual responsibilities without them. So maybe I'll actually make myself go take care of it. XD;

I got a popcorn popper glass thing to put in the microwave for Christmas, but Mom forgot the whole Glass Is Fragile thing and put it in cold water before it had a chance to cool down and now we don't have it anymore. XD;

My dad got me a SEGA GENESIS! One of the ones with like 80 games programmed in! I was so excited, I can finally play Sonic games with a Genesis controller again! ...Because you know I'll only ever play the Sonic games. It also comes with ones I didn't have already, along with a bunch of other stuff, so more to do on a rainy day.

We got a Cless in Luceti! Oh man! I can finally have my hero villain duo shenanigans! Super excited for that. I hope it turns out with A WHOLE LOT OF DRAMA and the Cless and Dhaos becoming friends. Best ending to Dhaos's character arc in Luceti.

Hm, what else... I got Omega Ruby! I didn't realize the Pokemon Coliseum music was from the Hoenn games, so that was such a nice surprise! There are a whole lot of other post game surprises, too, so be excited for those? Hint: use Extreme Speed instead of Dragon Pulse to make your life easier XD; Also if you enter the code POKEMON497 on the mystery gift menu you get a free Serperior. With its Hidden Ability! I've been having a lot of fun with the game, and my brother has Alpha Sapphire, so we've been able to have things you can only do with both versions. Yesssss.


maybe i should like put it under a cut )


And then the same sort of thing happening with May's other pokemon bringing stuff to other people she's met to tell them she's in danger, including Brendan. By the way, I was relieved to find that their "date" was entirely platonic. I WAS DECEIVED AND I WAS HAPPY ABOUT IT. Norman, of course, would have to be involved and he'd demand to come along because... he's a Gym Leader, you can't stop him from coming to help his child. XD

And then May would have to have something to do while waiting to be rescued. Maybe she can befriend the mistreated pokemon of her enemy and then battle her way out somehow to meet them halfway.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I have to kill someone and then bring them back somehow. Can't forget that. XD Maybe Archie, so that Maxie can be extra sad and then extra happy once he's back, LOLOLOL. Yaaaaaas.

I guess I'll just throw that onto the pile of fic I have to write myself someday if I ever want to read it XD; I DON'T NEED MORE FIC PROJECTS, BUT I WANT TO READ FIC SO...

Lastly, Dwarf Fortress allows you to rename and re-title dwarves! So instead of Iden Crystalletter, Hammerlord, for example, it would say Amihan, Terrible Person or Angie, covered in bees XD So if you would like to make it easier for me to keep track of my dwarves and take part in the adventures of my forts then I have a form for you!

PREFERRED GENDER (male or female)
PREFERRED SKILLSET (with the most preferred one first, no guarantees you'll get any of the other ones)

And I will try to do a better job of posting so you guys can see the results of your dwarves' antics. Warning: you are likely to die in a very bloody and unintelligent manner-- the dwarves aren't very smart, and I'm not actually omniscient, so.

...It's one in the morning. Oops.
northeasternwind: (Default)
I had totally forgotten about Sonic Boom for months and months, and I saw a playthrough of the first hour or so of Rise of Lyric and... it's not very good. XD; So far it feels like they've treated Amy's personality with more respect than she's seen in other games, but Knuckles gets even more over-the-top unintelligent, up to and including having to do the left-hand trick to determine the difference between left and right. And also I've heard that Amy spends the 3DS game kidnapped, which is. Well.

Haven't seen enough of Sonic and Tails's characterizations to judge them, but the writing is not that great? And the gameplay looks really tedious. Meh.

Shadow is mysteriously not redesigned, and while he hasn't done more than make a brief cameo in the playthrough I saw I heard that he was stripped of all his sympathetic qualities and his motivation for hating Sonic boils down to "because people who like friendship are silly" >__>

Also Knuckles looks weird??

I'm actually getting Christmas presents this year, so happy! Of course I don't know what they are yet, hahaha. One thing I need is more lamps, everywhere-- it's so dark and unhappy in this house. Oh, and I got a computer chair yesterday! Now I can sit at my desk without hurting myself!

I've realized that I have exactly one OT3, and that's Shepard/Nihlus/Saren. LOLOLOL. Together they could make a pretty functional and healthy relationship, assuming a No Reapers AU or something. And of course it's a lot more likely than, say, Shepard/Saren by themselves. Saren would despise Shepard without Nihlus's intervention, and even a Paragon Shepard's diplomacy couldn't change that. XD;

Some time I have to do a truly aro/ace playthrough of Mass Effect. Apparently all the places in the plot with designated love interest scenes get replaced by reminiscences of whoever died in the first game, which I can live with, even if I would like to have had non-romantic scenes with other characters. I also have to do a playthrough with Kaidan instead of Ashley, but like. I love Ashley so much... XD; I can't get rid of her. Which is a terrible thing to say, that I would rather have her than Kaidan, but she's fabulous. Yes.

As long as I haven't got the patience to play Mass Effect again, though, I'll stick to all the stuff I have yet to finish, like, uh. Dragon Age Origins. SPEAKING OF WHICH THERE IS A TRANS MAN IN INQUISITION WHO CANONICALLY BINDS HIS BREASTS AND YOOOOOO YOU GO BIOWARE. And he's voiced by Jennifer Hale! It'd be better if they actually got a trans man to voice him, but getting a cis woman might be the next best thing? Hm, I'll have to think about that... Now I have to get into the Dragon Age series, and money... ...Of course I still have problems with all the other irritating things Bioware has done, but this is a step up, man.

Speaking of Jennifer Hale, I have to make an entry complaining about Other M sometimes. It's one of those things I actually enjoy complaining about, without anger, so it'll be fun.

Also, the Beta of Kerbal Space Program is in experimentals! There's so much new stuff, I'm so excited! SPACE! \o/

I'm going to be so happy when this semester is over. I am so ready to not have some of these classes anymore.

EDIT: OH ACTUALLY, I forgot to mention! I watched Revolutionary Girl Utena! It's definitely up there with Princess Tutu as one of the best animes I've seen. I love it so much, laksdjljsd, but this post is long enough so I'll talk about that later.
northeasternwind: (Shanoa)
Yesterday I discovered why I shouldn't take my meds without eating first, and that is because crushing chest and neck pain.  Which lots and lots of water fixed, but it was very unpleasant and interrupted my otherwise delicious dinner, which is sitting in the fridge waiting for me to eat it.

...What's that? You didn't know I was on meds? Oh yeah, that's right, I haven't posted in over a month >_____>

OKAY SO WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS I got put on a tiny dose of fluoxetine (Prozac) and have since felt SO MUCH BETTER (ie: I feel normal. I'd forgotten what normal felt like!) but lol side effects, including:

loss of appetite
increased anxiety (I HAD A PANIC ATTACK IT WAS AWFUL)
nausea sometimes. I already had problems with this beforehand so I don't know if it's the medicine or me though.

Loss of appetite in particular is pretty irritating because I barely ate in the first place. I think it's gotten better, but I'm still going in to talk to my psychiatrist about it. Because yo, I know I slept too much but now sleep is just not a thing sometimes. ...I had sleep paralysis after trying to get some sleep after my last post, by the way. That was kind of scary.

I am one of two girls in my engineering class, which is discouraging because there's a group evaluation thing at the end of the semester and that means I will inevitably be docked points both because of subconscious discrimination and because literally everyone in the class but me has built their own car. It has gotten better lately! But I still dread that class. weh. Calculus is a lot better.

I fell behind watching Sailor Moon (I AM SO EXCITED TO WATCH VENUS'S INTRODUCTION EPISODE but I haven't been in the mood lately for like a month. Oops) and got into Dwarf Fortress. That is a terrible idea, don't ever do it.

(it's super complicated, has an unintuitive interface, and unless you happen to know the names of the ores that iron and copper come from and how to turn them into steel then you're going to need either the wiki or a geology textbook. But it's really fun, and can be made funner by the tradition of ruling the fortress for a year, then passing the save file to someone else without telling them what's going on, and writing an IC log about what happens.)

I've come to terms with the fact that I have an enormous crush on Thane Krios from Mass Effect. I didn't like him at all at first, because he seemed to me to be altogether too sure of his morality for an assassin >__> Also his face was really uncanny and his voice is super gravelly.  But he was so polite and friendly and gentle and adorable. He's so grateful for everything Shepard does for him, and if he confesses his feelings and she turns him down he's not disappointed or upset at all and continues to support her and never mentions it again. HE'S SO NICE ;__; It eventually overcame everything I didn't like about him. Now I'm trapped >__>

The writers really did wrong by him by only giving him one scene in the third game. No one even acknowledges him, even if he and Shepard are supposedly a couple and he sacrificed his life saving the Councilor (he's sick, he was always dying, everyone knew he'd die in the third game). In fact, literally minutes after his death, you get at least two (possibly four) people trying to ask you out on a date! What the heck, writers 8| That's not how it works for the rest of the romances. An hour previous, all your friends were consoling you on the death of one of your other comrades. The writers even admitted that they literally forgot about him while they were writing the game. Thanks, guys.

I also think they did wrong by Jacob, but I've already talked about that. Ugh. There were so many ways to forcefully end his relationship with Shepard if they absolutely had to, and they did it by making him cheat on her. BIOWARE STOP.

Hopefully I get back into writing so I can add this to the giant pile of things I have to write about.  Oops.
northeasternwind: (Chapter)
In the form of an Imgur album! I wanted to do an After Action Report style thing, and this is me figuring out how. So join me on my quest to save Obmund Kerman, stranded in space high above the planet Kerbin.

EDIT: UGH I can't embed imgur albums, apparently. So have the link instead!

If I post another one it'll probably be something more exciting. Also I'll have to play in a lower resolution because some of the text is hard to read in these screenshots, ahaha. But a few hiccups aside, mission accomplished!

This was actually pretty fun to make, so I might do these more often. I'll have to find a way to make them more interesting with the screenshot format. Maybe I'll take a leaf out of other people's books and write it like a fanfic except with accompanying screenshots, LOLOLOL.
northeasternwind: (Catastrophe)

Oh, uh, my bloodwork came back normal by the way! So that is definitely a good thing. Should probably have mentioned that.

If you follow me on Tumblr (or if you spotted my post from earlier) then you know that I've been getting my jimmies REALLY rustled by Mass Effect, and Irikah, and the comics and writing decisions in general, but I think I have reached my emotional irritation quota and hopefully there will be no more bad feels about those things. But I mean, if they had to have one character cheat on you-- exactly one character-- why did they have to make it the black guy? Really? COmE oNNNNN... And then there's the games treatment of Ashley vs. Kaidan >___> Mass Effect does a lot of things right, but it also does a lot of things wrong, and I think I'm just going to. Not romance anyone next time.

...If I can resist Garrus's hilarious ME3 dialogue. And Thane's adorable puppy eyes. I am also mad that they were originally going to make him a gay option and didn't do so. Same with Miranda. I would totally romance Miranda! I've always considered myself a non-shipper, but some of these guys are ruining me >__>

In other news, new Sailor Moon anime. Love it. I only saw a couple episodes of the 90s one when I was a kid, and I don't have an eye for animation mistakes unless it's pointed out, so quite frankly it looks absolutely gorgeous in every way to me XD Except the transformations look a little out of place, but Lexi assures me that Xaolin Chronicles is significantly worse in that regard, so I'll forgive them that.

(I did see all the silliness with Sailor Mars, though. Oops. But I was seriously legit surprised to find people had complaints with non-transformation animation. My sister always did say I have awful taste... I'll probably change my tune later, though >___>)

Kerbal Space Program added money, which I would be enjoying if I could stop waffling about everything, and also my BFF came over today to play Minecraft! I built a wall around a village and she is building us a fortress. It will be amazing.
northeasternwind: (Shanoa)
I was responding to a PM on Tumblr and got... distracted. >__________>

So instead of filling up said PM with post-worthy things I have decided to make a post! But Tumblr is a pain in the butt so I am posting it here instead.

Most of the length is images, as usual... )
northeasternwind: (Shanoa)

I have decided that I am angry about For Ashes being a Day One DLC, because JAVIK.  It's not like with Kasumi and Zaeed in ME2 either, he actually gets interaction with the other squadmates and adds things and is comedy gold in general.

Also I want to sob and hold him ): Imagine going through ME2 except with Javik's ordeal instead of the one you got. That would have been absolute torture. I am totally willing to look past Javik's prejudices and general racism because all things considered, he's been pretty fair and reasonable about it! Like he complains about how he is SURROUNDED BY PRIMITIVES, but he takes orders and tells things like it is (or at least like he sees it, which of course could never quite be 'like it is') and it's easy to see that he was once a leader, too. It's okay Javik, Shepard is a licensed Warrior Therapist. NO BUT REALLY WHY DO I HAVE TO PAYYYYY

(sidenote I thought I wouldn't like Zaeed, but then like all squadmates I initially didn't like he SUPER GREW ON ME LIKE WHOA. Seriously, him, Jack, Miranda, Thane? JAMES? I AM SO SORRY GUYS also I did not appreciate Legion for a long time, Legion is the best. Someday I will have to bring Kaidan to ME2 so I can learn to appreciate him, too.)

.......also i am told conrad verner is in me3, conrad where are you i needs it

So basically I have done absolutely nothing fandomwise for about a year now except get a few new fandoms to get into (HANNBIAL), SORRY Someday I will continue to write fanfiction like the half decent writer I know I am. But it is not this day >>

EDIT: Having eaten, I shall now inform my audience that when I said I would enjoy any pairing as long as it was well-written, I meant it. I just didn't know I meant it as sincerely as I apparently did >__> Shepard/Nihlus/Saren is now my favorite OT3, God help me. I found a wonderful No Reapers AU fanfic about them, and now I ship it so hard. Along with every possible combination of just two of them. Someone help me.

I am starting to hate chem lab less because the labs are not tedious anymore, but we only have one left and then the lab practical. I'm suspicious >__>; I've been having less problems than in high school (and even then it was the pretty average UGH SLEEP high school problems), but I still wish sometimes that my body would fall asleep in a timely fashion when I want it to. Whenever I flop over on top of the sheets with my day clothes and leave the lights on specifically so I don't fall asleep, I'm out in ten minutes tops. Body pls.

Kerbal Space Program is still the best thing ever and I have a mighty need to do science in all the places omg omg omg. I don't think I've talked about it here yet-- it's a silly game where you build rockets for the space program of a species called the Kerbals, and they fly them off to space (YOU fly them off to space, they sit in the cockpit but they're not much help ahaha), and you can do anything you want. There's a career mode where you have to unlock parts by doing ~SCIENCE~ and despite how silly the graphics look, you need at least a basic understanding of orbital mechanics, or you're never going to get your rockets anywhere XD; It's so much fun!

Also, landing a Kerbal on his helmet is more likely to save his life than keeping him in the cockpit-- cockpits can usually only survive impacts of up to 12 m/s, while a Kerbal landing on his head can survive up to 45 m/s XD

I keep being torn between possible romances in Mass Effect, because while I realize the point of replaying it is to do something different... Garrus. Garrus is hilarious, and his lines get better if you romance him. XD I am also incapable of being mean to people, which my sister is quick to point out. She says I'm boring ):

We (my dad and I without my mom's input) decided that weekends are mine to do with as I please so now all I need is MONEYZ I applied at the coffee place for a job, but since there's no way I'm going to get that I'm looking into other options.  As it happens, the New Frand I mentioned earlier works with the Career Development Center at my college as a resume coach, so hopefully mom will not be the only source of income in this house for long XD

There is apparently a throat virus going around campus and I have apparently caught it, along with some sort of cold, so now I am stuffy and unhappy and I went to bed at seven last night and woke up at ten this morning.  Yesterday I thought I was feeling better but then PAIN happened and I'm glad I didn't have to actually do anything >>; I feel better today, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't play GTA V even if I actually had it.

When I tried taking cold medicine yesterday it BURNED MY THROAT ARGH PAIN AND SUFFERING but I did fall asleep so I can't complain.  It did what it was supposed to do XD 

As mentioned I got an audio splitter, so maybe if I'm up to it I will test it today? I really don't want a headache though, those suck D8 Again, ILL.  ...Actually, I'm going to see if I can get any work done on the Thor playthrough.  I FINISHED THE PLAYTHROUGH, I WILL FINISH THE VIDEOS.  I DON'T CARE HOW PAINFUL IT IS.

OH OH and we discovered what happened to the prom pictures that everyone ordered and no one got.  Apparently the school forgot to tell everyone that you were supposed to go pick them up from the school over the summer, so now they have a giant stack of them in the sports office.  Which is a fortunate place to put them, because my sister found them while she was looking for windbreakers for the golf team (SHE'S CAPTAIN NOW I'M SO PROUD OF HER AAAAH) and brought mine home.  I look pretty, guys.

I neglected posting long enough that a whole ton of stuff has happened since my last post. It was going to be a giant photodump, which is why I put it off...

OoOoOoOoooooo. I am the ghost of North's productivity! )

SO I shall get to work on that giant photodump post and maybe buy a notebook as incentive to actually get stuff done and maybe I will be productive this summer.  Maybe.

In case you were looking for me on Tumblr and couldn't find me, there has been a social media purge in the house due to my mother's irritation with how much time we all spend on the internet and I'm lucky no one seems to realize there's been a mass exodus to Dreamwidth. I just deleted an RP journal on LJ to satisfy her, so obviously my LJ still exists.  Yay!

I missed a grad party yesterday which I would LIKE to attribute to the above purge, but quite frankly I was just too lazy shy to actually ask where my friend's house was >_________>

I got Minecraft for the Xbox 360, which is fun! Also it's the only game I can get my sister to play with me T__T She has shown interest in Mass Effect but can't be bothered to play it because I'm kind of the poster boy example of why videogames are bad for people, BUT MINECRAFT. NO ONE CAN RESIST.  It's also BF/N's favorite game and tends to involve less violence than, say, the Tales series, so my dad can actually watch us play without getting bored at how repetitive all the fighting is. \o/


Speaking of Mass Effect, actually, I thought the Extended Cut endings were beautiful and have still fallen back into my old habit of FIX THE ENDING SO THAT EVERYONE LIVES because pffft death, in fictional space operas we save everyone.  Also the moral dilemmas presented by the final choice intrigue me enough that I legit agonized over which one to pick, a decision which was made much easier by the realization that I hadn't payed attention when the game was not-so-subtly instructing you on HOW to choose and had no idea which path was which.  (I ended up gravitating towards the color blue because I like blue T__T)
