Title: Chrono Skating?
Posted: August 10, 2007 (07:30 PM)

Being the "gaymer" that I am, I love two things: video games and figure skating. Ha! Unfortunately, these two fields hardly intersect. Aside from (I'm not kidding) Michelle Kwan's figures skating video game for the PC (which hardly got a lick of press, for good reason), I can't think of any reason why something that is based on artful technique would be easily translatable to a mostly rule-based video game medium.

Which is why, this is the closest thing to a fusion of triple lutzes and games that I can think of. It's not perfect (especially towards the end), but the song strangely works with the choreography.

Figure skating? Badminton would be so much better, and you know it.

P.S. I'm at least halfway serious. Badminton rocks.

Watching badminton and ping pong set to Chrono Cross music? Would that work... *ponders*... well, if it was coordinated extremely well...

To genj: Me trying to explain what a lutz is will probably be more confusing than checking it out on wikipedia - but let us try, eh? A lutz is one of the many figure skating jumps, all of which are identified by what foot and what curve the skater vaults off of. The lutz usually starts with the skater going backward and (for a person who normally turns to the right) prepares the jump by curving left on the left foot. So, backward left on the left foot. Then the right foot jabs into the ice, vaulting the skater into the air. And hopefully they spin enough times and land the blade - or be pwned by the unforgiving ice.
