Title: Shit, damn, fuck, and other obsenities. Posted: December 06, 2006 (07:16 AM)
Well, I am here, sitting on my ass waiting for death. I closed last night/ this morning, so albiet, I'm a bit scatterbrained. I got here uber early in order to write my paper that's due today, and when I open up my backpack, I find that my rough is no longer there, and niether is my peer review. I can't write or turn in the essay without those, so now, there's no real point in writing the damn thing. I can't go home, otherwise I'll lose my exemption and my history class is today, too.
In regards to my last post, I must go into detail about how awesome Okami is. I may even write a review about it, but I've never written one before. o.0
Okami takes place in ancient Japan (reffered to as "Nippon" in the game, which is Japanese for "Japan". Ha ha)and you play as the sun god, Amaterasu, reincarnated as a white wolf. Your mission is to bring life back to the areas of the country that have been afflicted with curses from the evil Orochi's return. You do this by aquiring brush techniqes for your Celestial brush. With this brush, you can make withiering trees bloom, slash foes, and even make cherri bombs.
The little voices for the dialogue are a bit annoying, and I can't seem to find a way to turn them off, but that's the only downfall of this game. The graphics are all in the traditional Japanese/ Chinese art style, which may sound wierd, but it looks wonderful.
The first few minutes of gameplay, I was amazed by the wolf's movements. The detail! It's amazing! Sometimes, even now, I just run around to simply watch Amaterasu run because the makers programmed it SO FREAKING WELL.
But good graphics mean nothing when the gameplay sucks, right? Dirge of Cerberus proved that. (Ouch!) However, the story line is enthralling, fighting foes is always an adventure, especially bosses. Each one requires an entirely different strategy, and they aren't too frequent your eyes blow out. There are also little side quests for your entertainment, like digging up ten turnips without getting bludgeoned by a fat women.
I haven't finished the game quite yet, but I'm excited. I only have three more brush gods to find (they're the Chinese zodiac) and I know that the conlusion will be awesome.
This game rocks, in other words. Go get it.

I know how you feel. I missed one of my classes last week and because of it, I'm not allowed to sit the assessment. A friend of mine missed one a few weeks back and wasn't allowed to submit the main coursework.
Which is shit because if you fail that particular module, you have to resit the entire year again.

I skipped like 2 weeks of classes in a row because I went to every class throughout the whole semester. I am given absences, so why not use them?

I only get checked for that one class. The rest I could just not attend and no one would give a crap.

What a pain. Not many of mine really care. Then again, I only have three. 0.o
