Heroic Weeb Empire

aaaaaaah this day is even busier than I expected and I still have the vast majority of that thing to write/make for tomorrow, so!! not good!!

for now I guess I should just hurry and get lunch

sooooooo my alarms failed me and I woke up at 8:55 so no first lecture for me (thankfully, they are recorded…)

but then I made the mistake of sleeping even more and so it’s 9:50 and that’s annoying because I coulda used that time to shower and then I’d have more time to write

at least I got more sleep, I guess


me: ok i’ll study at 8:00

clock: 8:00

me: *pretends i didn’t see*


Spring Never forget


Spring Never forget



26 and 29

26. Uhhh these days I find myself getting more handheld games, but it’s not like I don’t play PS3/PC games still too. (…though honestly, I haven’t played much of anything lately.)

29. I’d probably say story, by far. I mean, obviously gameplay is important, and it can’t be terrible, but I’m willing to put up with some pretty flawed gameplay for a significant length of time if the story is good/interesting enough!

3, 4, 6, and 7!

3. Uhhh it’s hard to say what I consider the “best” game I’ve ever played, because if I think about it the games I love the most are all really really flawed, so… if I was just gonna go with my favorite/most important to me, I’d still probably say “Gotcha Force”. I really want to replay it sometime soon, since though I don’t know if it’d hold up as well for me now, another part of me thinks that now that I’d enjoy it even more since I can appreciate some of the cool robot/toku things in it.

4. On a sorta similar note, I usually go into playing/watching/reading/whatever things with the knowledge that I’ll likely enjoy them, so I haven’t actually played too many games I’ve specifically disliked that I can think of? I mean what sticks out in recent memory in terms of a game I’ve actually played (…if only for like 10 minutes) that I really dislike… Killer Instinct for the XBONE. It’s just a clusterfuck of bad particle effects and I can’t understand a single thing that’s happening on screen; like there are fighters where things are happening way too fast and that’s an issue and all, but here it’s like I can’t even get my eyes to focus on the screen because of how flashy everything is while the animation is also really jarring? And the fact that the hit sounds are all really generically… meaty, I guess, really messes with my ability to discern how attacks are going (I guess I’m saying there’s not much of a feeling of “hit confirm”?) and so I can’t even use that to help make sense of what’s happening.

6. It’s… probably way too much to get into, but Umineko, though an obvious answer, is definitely it.

7. I’d say Umineko again but the fact is that it really wasn’t memorable 100% of the time or anything. Maybe something like… Violet? That just sorta came to mind rather than being specifically significant (though it is a game I really love), but the length really helps there.

apparently the actor that played Philip in Kamen Rider W is gonna play Kuranosuke in the live action Kuragehime

and also the head writer of Gatchaman Crowds is writing it

that’s!! really neat!!

as always don’t try to do work while sorta lying around on your bed because you will, in fact, fall asleep for a bit

so that was… 40 minutes wasted? which doesn’t really help anything

guess I’ll switch to playing now; I know the gist of everything and don’t really need to see it all to discuss it so I’ll only get a few endings, write a little more, and sleep

cause I got a lot more writing to do tomorrow, especially since I didn’t exactly get half of it done today like I planned, so
