naanima: (Yes I am plotting your demise)
Most of the time I appreciate the UN because it is like a sign of humanity's progress. Then my hope get shot down by events such as Rwanda back in the early 90's and what is currently occurring in Darfu Sudan.

Moving on: there's a list of things I want to talk about in more detail, but no time, so short sentences it is (not in any particular order).

+ Kingdom Hearts 1 (the ending is kind of meh.)
+ Hajime no Ippo (still one of my all time favourite anime series; Miyata and Volg in the same room would drown anyone in angst, and everytime I re-watch the series I am reminded of the coolness that is Sendoh.)
+ Suikoden V (the recruitment process is slow and painful.)
+ Final Fantasy 12 (the ending is LOVE! So MUCH love! Fran and Balfear should have hot sex, except I kind of don't want to think of them having sex either....)
+ I am in the painful process of writing a coherent article on JoJo. The coherency is rather lacking but I am coming up with pretty descriptive titles fro each part.

One more thing; who on my flist likes Hajime no Ippo? I need to fangirl so much about this series (I always feel like fangirling about this series after re-watching it. Hmm, I will eventually post my proper fangirl post about the series sometime in the future.)

naanima: (kicking and screaming)
I am very sleepy and have been completely swamped by work. Can't actually remember what I'm supposed to be focused on at any given point.

Is currently taking a break from Suikoden V because the actual game-play aspect of it is driving me insane (need something a bit more dynamic). Also, no matter how much Fran and Balfear's arse are the many kinds of mesmerising, I just can't deal with where I’m currently at in FF12. You can only scream in frustration for so many times as you go from one really bad fight straight into a major boss fight with no time to heal and prepare. This is also kind of irritating because I’m really close to finishing the game (possibly another 3-4 hours or so).

So, after taking a 3 year break from KH 1 I think I’m ready to finish the game (I was about 3 hours from finishing the game back then, and for some reason I just lost steam.) Also, I got my arse handed to me by the Platinum Champion in under 5 seconds; this makes me hmm in a rather zen-like manner.

In the past week or so I have written over 40,000+ words in relation to work and university, this is making me want to write a novel about the reaching nirvana through reincarnation in the pure traditional Buddhism sense.

suiko 5 - fishing and dreaming

  • Sep. 29th, 2006 at 2:54 PM
naanima: (dance)
I admit it I get terribly addicted to side-quests and mini-games in RPGS. Whether it is cooking, gambling (the DICE game!), shooting targets on horse back or whatever, I get so addicted that I start to dream about it.

What I'm trying to get at is that the FISHING game in SUIKODEN 5 is stupidly ADDICTIVE! I woke up at 5AM this morning dreaming about fishing with the Prince from Suiko5. There was much screaming and shouting in the dream because the bleeding CHEESE/CHOCOLATE fish REFUSE to be CAUGHT!

I don’t know.

BTW: CONGRATULATIONS [livejournal.com profile] anarch_kitty, you deserve to be HAPPY!

SuikoV game log. Short

  • Aug. 7th, 2006 at 3:29 PM
naanima: (OMFG)
I'm still in the stunned stage at just how much effort Konami went into developing most of the characters.

Therefore, random things that stuck in my mind. )

I wish I can be smarter about my observations, however, I doubt I'll be able to have any deep meaningful wank about the game till after I finish it.

Suikoden V

naanima: (alien)
Ten hours into Suikoden V, and I’m pretty sure the first arc of the game is over. I tend to think of Suikoden games in 3 major arcs, the opening arc, which is the introduction; characters, motivations and the how of our hero becoming what he is destined to be. The second arc being the building of your stronghold, collection of 108 SOD and the revelation of plot, and of course the many battles. Finally, the third arc, in which there is much death, pain, and the truth is revealed, this is where Leon Silverberg screwed me over in the first game, and Snowe fucked it up for me in the fourth game.

Moving on: Suikoden V Spoilers )

Will talk more about Suiko5 after Sunday, will get the PS2 back then.

FF12 game-log, the spoiler-less version

naanima: ([FF12] Larsa the Emperor)
26-hours into the game, and I still can’t get over the awesomeness that is the FF12 gaming/platform system. I have so much control over my team members, it is breathless-sigh worthy.

Random note: The Land of the Viera is inhabited by 6ft+ tall dark!Elf- coloration (dark skin, white hair), bikini-clad rabbit-girls. I am in awe by the sheer amount of g-stringed clad butts that keep on wiggling around (the R1 + R2 button are your friends *giggles*). If I was not more heterosexual inclined I’m sure there would have been much salivation, but alas I couldn’t stop giggling because ALL the Viera towered over Vann and Baltheir. The fact that I’m a Fran/Baltheir fangirl only make this fact that much more entertaining because dude, the interesting sex life the two of them would have! (Their BABIES! If they, you know, ever breed. The problem is while I’m all for Fran and Balthier doing the deed I’m also getting Mal-Zoe vibes from them, this is sad because I CANNOT picture Mal and Zoe getting it on *pouts*).

Beyond the insane het-shipping I am also in love with the R1+R2 buttons!

ETA: I need ff12 user icons.

ETA 2: Despite what my icon states, I am, in the process, of cutting coffee out of my diet. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

ETA 3: LARSA is LIEK REALLY, REALLY, REALLY AWESOME! Yes, I know he's like 12, but he's fucking awesome! And well Vann is OK as the hero I REALLY wish that LARSA would have TAKEN over the GAME (and the WORLD! Because dude! He's like 12 and he already OWNZ!) If they ever make sequel there NEED to be an ADULT LARSA!

Final Fantasy 12

Have FF XII, that’s FF 12, in Japanese. Playing FF12 in Japanese, there is no such thing as a language barrier (I can guess). It is shiny. Oh so shiny. I sense EPIC plot, and it is just so pretty, like watching a movie. I'm getting a mix of Revenge of the Sith, LOTR, and FF9 mixes from the game. Not far enough into it to make a proper review except for; it is really shiny, and it is like angst galore. Just wow. SquareEnix’s whoring skills are so much more ahead than any other Corporation I know of. In addition, I have become attached to a character that I doubt will survive… *cries*

ETA: O.M.F.G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have seen the FFXII clips and OMFG!!!! SQUEEEEE! Happiness! I haven’t being this excited about a FF game since 10, and we all remember how angry I got at that game. But OMFG! FFXII looks so AWESOME! The GRAPHICS is way cool, I fangirl so VERY MUCH! It is sooooo pretty!!!! It looks good, it feels good, I just get so MUCH good vibes from it. OMFG!

I need the GAME when it comes out! HAPPINESS!

I am taking a small break form Dirge of Cerberus. Got my little grubby hands on Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and it is really fun! The save points are absolutely gorgeous, ohhh, chair, ohhh, wings.

And [livejournal.com profile] _leareth, I love you! Got the GIFT! CONRAD key chain!!!! OMFG!!! SQUEEEE! *huggles*

10 minutes dot points Dirge of Cerberus game-log, not in any particular order.

Got the tutorial working! Oh pretty, the easy mode saves me once more, and omfg! Back story! )

ETA: More than likley I will speak of nothing but Dirge of Cerberus until I finish the game... or lose interest, however, as I'm playing on easy mode I'll more than likley be interested till I finish the game. Just thought I should warn people.

Dirge of Cerberus - Squareenix, you whore!

  • Feb. 6th, 2006 at 7:43 AM
naanima: (slightly abstract)
The boyfriend bought me a Japanese copy of Dirge of Cerberus! Much happiness! I don't think I can put up with bad English dub at the present time.

As I said before the language barrier is for the weak! Beside it is really handy when the boyfriend figure out the controls for you (PS2 shooting games that are made for PCs, are liek, ARGHH!) And the guy friends walk you through the menus figuring out what is what. So, I had 20 minutes of play, and OMFG! Why didn't anyone tell me it is a first person shooter game?! All I can say so far; it is pretty, the controls are relatively easy (once you figure it out), and I want to play more because there will be GUEST APPEARANCES! (I just know it.) And I really, really, really love the way you can accessorise your weapon (easily).

Need to figure out how to access the tutorial.

gold chocobo

naanima: (really really dangerous)
I have a gold chocobo! MWahahaha! It only took me over a million gil and hours of my life but it doesn't matter for I have a gender confused gold chocobo named Misara (I wanted to spell it with 'th' unfortunately I had limited space *woe*.) Replaying FF7 is bringing me much joy and crack of the good kind. It is also making me crave caffeine & sugar so that I may continue with the playing, unfortunately there is work and I need to sleep *sad*.

Just finished the first disk of Final Fantasy VII, feeling kind of drained. Quite amazed at how much of Aerith’s last moments I do actually remember from years back. Adored the girl, still adore her. Now, all I can think about is the Aerith and Cloud scenes that will be in Advent Children. About three minutes worth of FMV that’s going to break my heart and make me cry like a baby.

I can’t remember who, but someone at one point asked me to explain FF7 to them… and well, let’s just say I floundered for several moments before my brain went into shut down mode. It is just extremely difficult to condense over 100+ hours of my life into a 10 minutes explanation (even if the plot can be summed up in less than 10mins). There is just no chance of me being concise; I want to talk about every single character in great detail, their little idiosyncratics that makes me giggle, their varied fighting styles, their unique speech patterns, and their actions. I want to talk about all the places that our heroes had to travel to in order to save the day, I want to talk about the different materia, the combat system, the relationships between the characters, and so much more. Conclusion; there’s just no way to do that without confusing someone who has never played the game before.

I love this game, and now I await for Advent Children, because it will be good I can so do denial if need be.

Off to sleep.

naanima: (woot...?)

I don't go online for over 60 hours and I find myself incapable of catching up to email/lj/etc. The back log is truly impressive. Don't have enough brain power to form logical replies to people. Being gaming, sleeping, and re-playing FF7. Had forgotten just how badly Sephiroth got screwed over (mind-fuck comes pretty close.)

Good Things
  • Reno-love is still alive and kicking.

  • Rufus' introduction/entrance makes an impact (thought I might have remembered wrong).

  • The Corel bit bores me to tears (haven't changed, but is a good point to level and get gil).

  • Jenova is strangely pretty. Did not remember this at all.

  • Mog-Game is GOD!

  • Overall; on re-play ff7 is much easier and still enjoyable. Will finish it before Advent Children is released.

    Off to sleep.

    Need to sleep. Sleeeeeeeeep. However, need to finish accounting assignment first.

    Saw [livejournal.com profile] eirivan for five minutes on Saturday! Sorry [livejournal.com profile] eirivan, I was kind of out of it when I saw you, thus, the minimal talking. However, a dip. Ed? For some reason I just didn't see that one coming but I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Feeling wrecked (tired, tired, tired). The only thing I did this weekend was getting personal with my accounting assignment on Saturday and part of Sunday. Spent the remaning bit of Sunday with mum watching Asian sopies, and eating KFC (yummy chicken.) Played about four hours of Suikoden 4. Discovered the Adonis and Anti-Adonis attack. The few words that kept on spinning in my head when watching the attacks; GHEI! GHEI! GHEI! Oh HELMUT, how can you let Sigurad and Hervey corrupt you so.

    I finished Suikoden 4 by accident.

    I finished Suikoden 4 by accident.

    It took 38 hours and 48 minutes. This is what happens when I don't have a walkthrough, I speed-play through a game like a chipmunk on acid. As a consequence I'm truly lost on the whole plot thing, not saying what I have found out isn't interesting (it is damn fascinating,) but I feel as if I have missed out on large chunks of plot. Hmm, I'm so glad next week is going to be a holiday week for me. Going to re-play the thing to get every last cut scene.

    Now, I shall study for my finance mid-semester this Thursday.

    Suik04! I have TED!

    naanima: (journey)
    My weekend was tiring. Spent eight hours studying Finance and twelve straight hours doing my maths assignment. The brain is indeed tired. On the upside I'm pretty much finished with the said assignment, and I figure one more solid-day of Finance and I should be fine.

    The really good thing: Played MORE Suikoden 4 from 11pm to 5am (there wasn't much sleep involved this weekend).

    Another 10 mins. Maybe a bit longer. Suik04 game-log. The game is addictive. And TED! I have HIM! SOUL EATER! And the Ship-Guide.  )

    [I need a Suk0 icon. Maybe I can email one of the Japanese fanart site, and ask for permission to use their art-work for icon purposes.]
