Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
For a long time now I've chronicled the connections between the various FF worlds, beyond the normal "Cid" "Chocobo" "Moogle" stuff. Why? I think it because the human mind thrives on connection. We live in a world where everything is inextricably but subtly connected and there is some joy for us that can only be achieved by discovering those connections and marking them. Thus, with a series which ostensibly has no connection between the games, what little information I can find to prove otherwise fascinates me.
It's been awhile since I wrote a synopsis. We just finished our 7th session, so I figure I'd better get writing before I start forgetting those earlier tales. On with story #3!
Spring was coming to a close. The rains had not abated and Fallan's thoughts were often drawn, against his will, to the people of Port Sumac. He wondered whether the dam he and Abram had reinforced had held. He often wondered about Patrick.
He had not seen his friend since returning to Lockhaven. Patrick had left sometime before Fallan's return and so he had not had time to deliver the news of his sister's death. In truth, Fallan was relieved.
I'm really torn between Dissidia and BlazBlu.
Dissidia is an interesting take on the fighter mechanics with characters I know and love and a lot of stuff to do. It's probably lacking in the story department and I know it is lacking in the multiplayer department (no online, just adhoc).
BlazBlu is possibly one of the greatest fighters ever made with definitely the best story of any fighter ever made (and a good story for games in general). Again, tons of shit to do. However, it is also a highly technical fighter that you really have to pour your soul into if you hope to get anything out of it. Of course, the pay off is that you can then use those learned abilities to show off in what I hear is a lag-free online rumble fuck.
Well, spent yesterday board-gaming it with a bunch of friends. We do that every monday... at around 11:00pm we started up a philosophical discussion on Batman which lasted until 2:30 in the morning.
Today saw me create a card game based on Zombie films, called City of the Damned. I'll be playtesting in the next few weeks and then printing and selling by December, with any luck. Keep an eye out for it!
As part of my "kill myself at Graduate School" campaign I've been cleaning out old boxes and what not from my attic. Finding a box of EGM, PSM, and Gamepro was not hard to throw onto my Dad's burn pile but then...
... well, then I came across a box of old Nintendo Power. I'm talking OLD. Like, Nester and Howard comics are still being run in these fuckers.
And you know? Every time I think of tossing them a knot forms in my chest. I don't know what it is. They aren't in great condition and the chances of me reading them again are slim. Even if I somehow did get the desire, there's a great site out with all that stuff:
Seriously, I hadn't seen that film in about ten or fifteen years and I watched it again tonight. Still awesome. It's mostly satire, is the main reason. It's not trying to be a serious film. And there's some awesome special effects. I still cringe at the toxic waste man. Ergh...
Also, best commercials in a film. Ever.
Man this shit is great.
