New Tactics Ogre PSP prologue video! It...appears they have gone the War of the Lions route and indeed introduced the Ivalician lisp. This only really irritates me because it's pretty clear they're removing the whole Goetic demon naming theme (Hierophant "Balbatos" is the first clue there), which I've always thought was kind of awesome. Still, it looks like it will be fun?

(Squeenix has also released the other prologue video, featuring some of the in-game classes, and a video of the first 11 minutes of the game. Looks like it's shaping up to be awesome, weird translation choices aside!)

Also, HAPPY HALLOWEEN for MARIA (and for everyone else):

PERSONA 2 PORTABLE TRAILER

OMG LOOKS PRETTY AWESOME, though I notice Jun has been mostly removed, aside from a few nods here and there (and one headless shot of him in school uniform). This makes sense, as would not want to spoil people for the CRAZY AWESOME (and awesome crazy).

Anyway, in honor of this upcoming rerelease (for which more art has come out), I feel it's time to resurrect a long-dormant feature of my LiveJournal over here, which is a takeoff on one of the Persona 2 characters' signature phrases.

Let's Positive Linking: Persona 2 YouTube Edition!
- Durara parody video.
- Trinity Soul parody video. (Why does Baofu have a sunflower for a head?)
- Smooch parody video. SO CUTE.
- Higurashi parody video. Like chocolate and peanut butter.
- Danjo parody video.
- Peke Rush parody video.

Even though I am unfamiliar with most of the source materials to these (aside from Higurashi), I greatly enjoyed them.

Some other awesome videos that are non-Persona related:
- Full Metal Alchemist meets Final Fantasy VI.
- Ouran meets Final Fantasy VI...
- ...and Final Fantasy VII.
- "Sometimes, I'm a SOLDIER. Sometimes, I'm a mental patient. But my true identity is...CLOUD FLASH!"

(BTW, I have now imported all of my LJ posts over here, for the record.)

PERSONA 4 (and artbook, calendar, T-shirt, both soundtracks, and Teddie plush) GETTO

BREAK TIEM


Also, I just read the first story in the new Valdemar anthology during lunch - Mercedes Lackey's own story - and was vaguely horrified to realize about a third of the way through that it was a fanfic with the numbers filed off "homage" to, of all things, Scooby-Doo. There's a wagon with the psychedelic design, four Herald-Trainees investigating a ghost story (the handsome but slow blond guy, the emotional and gullible girl, the practical and intelligent but unfeminine girl, and the scaredy-cat guy), there's a magical dog who shows up and bonds with the Shaggy-type which plays absolutely no part in the story aside from saying "Ruh-roh" and asking for food, and it even ends with the exclamation (which I was waiting for from the moment I figured it out) that "I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling Heralds!"

And what's even worse, it was told from the viewpoint of the meddling kids' mentor, the world-weary wry and exasperated older woman which tends to characterize so many of Lackey's self-insert characters (culminating in "Herald-Librarian Myste" or whatever such shit showed up in the Alberich books). So it's not just a Scooby-Doo AU fanfic, it's a Scooby-Doo AU self-insert fanfic.

...remind me, why do I like Misty Lackey's books so much again? D:

Edit: ...is it a sign of things to come that the second line of dialogue in the game is my (rather DILFy) uncle telling me I'm more handsome than in my photo? I KNOW YOU, ATLUS, AND YOUR WAYS D:

I just realized it's been forever since I made a proper videogame post, so I figured it was time to talk about what I've played recently, what I'm playing now and what I'm looking forward to playing in the future.

The past )

The present )

The future )

Okay! So that's my Big Videogame Post o' Doom (tm)! But there's one more thing: the Persona 2: Innocent Sin fan translation hack is going to be released on October 15. It looks like it's going to be awesome, and given that this is my favorite game of all time (I played through it in Japanese, which tells you my level of devotion to this game), I think anyone who enjoys RPGs or likable characters or FUN IN GENERAL needs to play this game. (Also I <3 every character in this game so ridiculously much; they're so fully realized they do seem like real people, and I like them more than some members of my family, for god's sake!)

If that's not tempting enough, it also has Hitler and Mayan aliens and crystal skulls and the Lance of Longinus and a gay option for the main character and Lovecraft references and Jung references and obscure foreign poetry by Heinrich Heine and Marie Laurencin and Little Prince references and astrology and flower language and Steven Seagal and tragedy and hilarity and insanely bad driving and it's pretty much the awesomest game evar and EVERYONE SHOULD PLAY IT, TRUFAX
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Default)
From [livejournal.com profile] zerochan, the Square Enix teaser site for a certain game. HOLY CRAP, DO WANT. I suppose the question is, will it be a remake of the first game, or a new entry in the series? (I'm inclined towards the former, just because the clock ticking noise is exactly the same sound effect from the original game. Still, it would be worth it to have all the bonuses of the PSX version, and more, without the crappy-ass PSX load times.)

Either way, it had better eventually come out over here in the US, and ideally sooner rather than later!
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Default)
After going through my Backloggery, I have come to the conclusion that I am spending far too much of my free time on the Internet/dicking around, and not enough playing video games (which actually DOES feel to me like achieving something, much as it might not seem like it to the outside world).

SO...I am making a New Summer's Resolution. Starting when my classes do - that is, on Tuesday - it will be my goal to spend a large part of every other day working on comps stuff. The in-between days, however, I plan to spend sitting at home playing video games and trying to finish at least SOME of my massive backlog (seriously, according to my Backloggery I have yet to beat 81 games, or 65.9% of the games I own; a good portion of them I haven't even started or have played only a few hours of).

I'm going to spend today working on my first annotation for comps (mostly because I promised it to my special interest list advisor this week, and THE WEEK ISN'T OVER YET OFFICIALLY AMIRITE), and tomorrow I have some errands to run (I desperately need to get a haircut, for one, and I also need to check something regarding my fellowship with the grad college, and I need to go grocery shopping, and I need to call and make an appointment with the dentist, and few other things). Tuesday will be a work day, since it's the first day of class and I'll be on campus anyway. Since after that we'll set up regular meetings for said class (I imagine weekly or biweekly), that means Wednesday will both be a day off and a VIDEOGAME DAY.

(At this point my top priority is finishing Mass Effect, because a) I really want to know what happens and b) then [livejournal.com profile] lordtravis can borrow it, because he's also a big Bioware fan. After that my top priorities are Mana Khemia, Persona 3: FES and No More Heroes.)
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (ROS TOYLOR)
Okay, so I may have finally given in and purchased an Xbox 360 so that I can play Mass Effect.

...IT'S NOT MY FAULT, BIOWARE MADE ME DO IT

Anyway, ME is awesome, as expected. The customization for your main character is mind-blowingly flexible (even if all the male faces you can make tend to be very craggy-jawed and rough-skinned...to get anything approximating my own face I had to go to a female main character, and so I ended up just doing something that bore the vaguest resemblance to what I would look like as a MANLY SOLDIER MAN and went with that, since I wanted to play through as a male first).

But what struck me even more than that was the fact that it gives you a choice of pasts for your character, and they actually are referenced in the story! (I.e., if you grew up an impoverished megacity orphan who joined the military and became a war hero, people mention this, whereas if you grew up a military brat who was the sole survivor of some kind of horrific alien attack, people mention that instead. It seems obvious in retrospect but still, why aren't more RPGs with customizable main characters doing stuff like that?)

Also of course the plot is awesome so far, and the characters likable. I do think it's a bit unfair that you can be lesbian but not gay, but honestly the fact that this game lets you do any kind of same-sex relationship as more than just cheesecake fanservice is kind of nice (Bioware has a good track record of this, what with the possibility of female main character/Juhani in Knights of the Old Republic and then Jade Empire, which DOES let you be both lesbian and gay; the latter is also their least successful game to date, though probably not because of that.)

Also I'd like my stomach to stop devouring itself now plzkthx
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (NEED CAFFEINE NOW PLZKTHX)
...man, I'm exhausted and tomorrow's Monday, the beginning of the week. ARGH.

Anyway, as you can probably tell, I kind of had a working weekend - tomorrow I have to present on my seminar paper, and progress thereon, in my Lydgate seminar, and also had to send out a five-page excerpt from my paper this weekend, so I've been really working crazily for a good part of this weekend. (Read: I pulled an all-nighter last night to get the last part of said excerpt beaten into submission and in some semblance of readable-by-others quality.) Still, this means that I do now have a decent chunk of my paper draft done, so that automatically puts me way further ahead of schedule than pretty much any other semester I've taken a seminar, lol. The full 20-page draft isn't due until a week from Friday, but I'm hoping to finish it before then and have it out of my hair.

Speaking of hair, I went and got a haircut today. (I was overdue, since my last haircut was in January I think.) I like it, except that I had them leave it a bit longer on the top, so if the wind blows it wrong it has a distressing tendency to sort of settle into a faux-hawk. (The better you know me in person, the funnier this will probably seem.) So I think I may have to use product, at least for a few days until it settles down a bit, just to keep it from faux-hawking on me. D:

Tomorrow is going to be hellacious, as I have my presentation in the morning, then I have to scramble to get through my reading for Rhetoric (since I will have to lead discussion on it, being the teacher and all), and then I have my German class in the evening. (Also I may be meeting with my seminar prof sometime in there.) D:

On the plus side, Mana Khemia comes out tomorrow, and y'all know how much I like me some Atelier-series gaming.

...I was about to say that if Gamers doesn't have it in tomorrow I'm gonna have to cut someone, but then I realized that I won't be able to play it till Tuesday night/Wednesday anyway (since I have to do my Old Norse translation tomorrow evening for Tuesday, and even after that I probably SHOULDN'T be playing it and SHOULD be finishing up my seminar paper draft), so I guess if they get it in a day or two late I'll be able to deal. STILL I NEED TO START IT ASAP SO I CAN FINISH IT BY THE TIME FES COMES OUT

Finally, linkspam!

- I've discovered that I should probably be watching the British show Blackpool. It's several years old and is essentially a straightforward cop/crime drama, but every so often they break into musical numbers set to pop songs to express homoerotic antagonism or to celebrate a drug bust. Note that the series also starred David Tennant (a.k.a. the current Doctor Who)...and that judging from the second video, synchronized dancing is not his strong point. XD
- You know, I'm really glad that YouTube wasn't around when I was a teenager. This is not to say there aren't remnants of my youthful folly online - the Wayback Machine has copies of some rather embarrassing (attempts at) fan translation pages from when I was like 12 - but at least I never had to worry about being an Internet laughingstock, like this girl is.
- New Zealand man receives sentence for claiming that he was raped by a wombat, which caused him to start speaking "Australian." ...I couldn't make this shit up if I tried.
- On a similar note, the latest news on efforts to rekindle pandas' dormant sex drive in order to save the species. I didn't even know porn for pandas existed (unlike panda porn, which I'm sure does exist somewhere in the depths of the Interwebs).
- And finally, this is the best post I've seen on ONTD in ages (link probably not worksafe). I now know far more than I ever wanted to about Bobby Trendy's sex life, but the sheer horrific trainwreckness of this post left me simultaneously going "OH MY GOD NO I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE" and "...wait, they're refusing to give all the gory details? I CALL SHENANIGANS, GIVE US THE GOODS."

...For some reason I've had this song running through my head all weekend. So because pain shared is pain halved, have some early '90s cheese.

Two games that I am salivating over: Persona 4 and Valkyrie Profile: The Accursed One (hereafter VP:DS). (The VP stuff was announced a few days back with a screenshot, but the P4 screenshots are completely new.)

Gotta say, even though P4 has had very little of a graphical upgrade from P3, and Soejima's character designs are a little samey compared to P3's, I'm still super-pumped about this game. (But then, I really liked P3, even the much-maligned school-sim system and Mysterious Dungeon-like Tartarus.) I wouldn't mind if Shoji Meguro cut down a little on the BABYBABYBABY though...not that I dislike it, or even really got tired of hearing it, but I just really loved his DDS2 work and wish he'd do something a little closer to that for P4.

So FES next month, then P4 over here sometime early next year probably...sounds like a good Persona-year to me, though I always worry about games released near the end of a dying system, after the new one's already out (remnants of my SNES past). Atlus, please release Persona 4 even though it will be for the PS2! After all, the PS2 has a larger install fanbase than the PS3.

As for Valkyrie Profile, and for the DS no less...YESPLZ. Though I guess I'd better beat Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria first, huh. XD;

Still, tri-Ace has owned my soul since Star Ocean 2, so I'm anxiously awaiting this game. They've actually done quite a few of my favorite-ish games: the Star Ocean games, the Valkyrie Profile, Radiata Stories...so I have a feeling this one will be awesome as well. :D

[livejournal.com profile] nemissa recently posted about an awesome site, The Backloggery. You can create a library of your videogames and label which ones are incomplete or in various levels of completion. I've created my own backlog page; it still needs some work, but you can see where I am on a lot of my games currently (and how shamefully few I have completed).

The cool thing is that you can embed a list of the games you're currently working on, like so:
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Tamama)
Warning: completely arbitrary "best of" list ahoy!

...I figure it's late enough in the PS2's lifespan to look back on the games released for it as a whole. And specifically, my chosen genre of game, the RPG. So, bored and fueled by cinnamon bears, I am making a top ten list of the best PS2 RPGs ever.

My list (spoilers ahoy) )

Okay! Making this post was one of my goals for the weekend; others are making a post about cracktastic yaoi manga (the one I've been promising for like 3 months), posting about how the manga Princess Princess changed my life (...kinda), posting some Old English riddles that [livejournal.com profile] enkiae was asking about, playing a shitload of Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana, and watching a shitton of Doctor Who (they tried to deliver my megaset today but I was off teaching, so I get to go to the Post Office and pick it up tomorrow, whee!).
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Furry)
OH GOD THE 90S-FEST CONTINUES

I kind of sort of may have downloaded Take That's greatest hits collection PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME ;_;

In other news, I'm kind of fed up with how good I am at wasting time (as witness the cartoon linked in my last post, which does in fact describe my life), and feel the need to do something about it. I'd especially like to spend my leisure time more constructively - I don't mean, like, coming out of it with a novel or something, but maybe making a dent in my massive backlog of games which I own and really want to play but somehow never get around to because I'm on IRC or surfing the Net and am lazy/horrible at multitasking (take your pick).

So! In an effort to pack more fun into my leisure hours, I'm going to be pretty scarce on IRC for a while. Also, I'm gonna try to stay off my usual massive Intarwubs timewasters ([livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt, this means you). I am still going to be checking my flist, of course, 'cause that doesn't waste THAT much time, and I do still want to keep up with everybody. And of course for those of you who can't live without your daily dose of Yosi-chat, I'll still be on AIM.

Okay! On the cards for today are to finish my reading for my seminar tomorrow, re-watch the sample analysis speeches I'm showing my students tomorrow (I show it every semester but it's been a while so I'm fuzzy on what exactly they're about again), finish cleaning my apartment (the front room at least), and play some more Super Mario Galaxy (which is inordinately full of awesome). Also if I have time I want to get some of the numerous articles/books I have in photocopy form into EndNote, in preparation for the mammoth task of trying to copy them into PDFs and store them on my external HD (which will save room in my file cabinet LIKE WHOA).

And in completely unrelated news, this is pretty awesome - basically three guys with some props, a camera, a greenscreen and a crapload of CGI recreate D-Day for a BBC program. It does end up looking pretty awesome. :D

Questions and answers )
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (WOES I AM SO HELPLESS AND EMO)
I've been meaning to blog about this but keep forgetting, so I will do it while I'm thinking of it!

My PSP has apparently broken - it won't stay powered on for longer than like 5 minutes, which is putting a serious cramp in my Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions playing (as in, rendering it unplayable). The battery appears to charge just fine, but nevertheless this keeps happening, even with power at 100% and/or plugged in with the AC adapter. I thought it was just that the battery needed replacing, so I got a new battery when I got FFT (hadn't had much of a reason to play it for a while before that, so it wasn't a big issue till this came out), but same old problem.

For the record, I haven't dropped it, and I'm running the firmware which came with FFT (when I first got FFT home and replaced the battery for the first time it lasted for about an hour, which was long enough to update firmware and get through the first battle in Gariland). Also of course obviously it hasn't been bricked, so that's not the problem.

I haven't been able to find anything about this specific problem online; have any of y'all PSP owners on the flist had this problem? If so, were you able to fix it somehow? Because I am DETERMINED to play FFT and its snazzy new translation, especially since I have 2 5-hour bus rides (to KC and back) coming up this weekend, and while I'd rather not get a new PSP if I don't have to, I will if this one just won't work.

In related news, the TV-out on the new PSP models looks SWEET. >_>
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (Comics are cool)
Haha, as an actual fan of boybands, I find this song HILARIOUS.

And speaking of hilarious, I got the most awesome book from the library and zoomed through it today because it was so trashily good. First, I should comment that I rarely manage to get any fun reading done during the semester unless it's graphic novels, just for time purposes, unless it's a new book by one of my favorite authors. But this was amusing enough that I managed to get all the way through it during the semester - in a single day, even!

It's called Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary, and I believe its tagline describes it all: "Her soul was pure. Her desires were sinful. Her typing was impeccable."

...you see now why I couldn't NOT get it from the library. XD

Anyway, the story itself indeed lives up to its description. It's sort of like a cross between a pastiche of lesbian pulp fiction and a Nancy Drew book. (I was going to say it's like a lesbian Nancy Drew book, but that's actually the Nancy Drew book themselves - even as a kid I totally thought that Nancy's BFFs Bess and George, who were cousins, were totally in love with each other.)

A sample from the book )

Note that this happens immediately after her overbearing boss has made her dress up as a French maid and inadvertently introduced her to dominance/submission in the process. XD

Anyway, the book is deeply stupid (intentionally so; the denouement involves blackmail, jilted girlfriends and subliminal Communist messages transmitted through lingerie ads), but nevertheless really endearing; I kind of want it to be a series now.

Oh, and for [livejournal.com profile] jantalaimon, it does indeed include lesbrarians; the Dewey Decimal System actually plays a rather large part in the plot. XD

And as far as videogame nattering goes, I downloaded and tried out the demo (PS3, though it's also being released for Xbox 360) of Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, which is an interesting little Dynasty Warriors-meets-RTS game from Koei set during the Hundred Years' War between England and France. I'd heard about it, thought "oh, I like that period, I should remember to check that game out one of these days" and left it at that; but I should have known it would turn out awesome. (Koei's Kessen was my first game for the PS2, and while it had its flaws I still have very fond memories of it.)

Basically, you assume the role of a mercenary (male OR female, in case you want to do the whole Joan of Arc thing) and accept jobs with whichever side of the conflict you want (English or French). You can lead numerous types of units, from infantry to cavalry to archers to spearmen; judging from the menus, I think later you get elephant and camel cavalry, which is COMPLETELY AWESOME (if not entirely historically accurate). Basically, for each battle you lead whatever unit you pick into Dynasty Warriors-esque battles; if it starts to become less effective, you can leave that unit and take over another, more effective unit (once you find an allied version). As you use each kind of unit, you level up their abilities; you can also buy equipment, equip pennons that have an effect on whatever unit you're currently with, and accumulate treasure, money and fame. (I'm sure there's more complexity, but sadly I've only played the demo.)

After a playthrough of the demo this morning, my medieval-geek reaction is that I will be getting this ASAP: it comes out in early November, so not too long to wait. :D

Finally, Rob Liefeld rags on Alan Moore. My reply? DIE IN A FIRE, LIEFELD, YOU'RE NOT FIT TO PICK LICE OUT OF ALAN MOORE'S MOUNTAIN-MAN-SLASH-UNABOMBER BEARD.

Ahahaha, this bit of fucked-upness (courtesy of Neil Gaiman) is worth a read, despite its author's wanky tone. I have to say, though, that I called the twist in this article on the first page - clearly I spend too much time on fandom_wank. XD

On the plus side I finally get to use this icon. :D

Also, the Heroes Slash Manual is kind of awesome, and I wish I had $8400 so I could buy the newly Vatican-released Knights Templar trial papers (from [livejournal.com profile] moonsheen).

And because I can't go an entire post without talking about videogames, Gamers was out of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions. Weo. Also, I downloaded the demo of the new PS3 Conan game and it kinda sucks - I was hoping for something along the lines of Heavenly Sword with bigger thews, and it kind of is that but with worse control and uglier graphics. D:

Edit: Apparently I am indeed prescient - it just showed up ON fandom_wank, with a lot more details.

HAI EBURIBADII



I'm not sure there's anyone on my flist who has the same bizarre confluences of dorkinesses that I do and hence will get why I find this icon so funny - maybe one or two - but hopefully this and this will enlighten. XD

Apropos of nothing, can I just say that I am SO TIRED of people calling me "ma'am"? I've given up on it on the phone, but in person even? Seriously, yesterday I went to get dinner at Sbarro with [livejournal.com profile] lordtravis before our German seminar, and the woman working there - despite me having been there before, and despite me NOT HAVING SHAVED IN THREE DAYS (and when I don't shave, it SHOWS) - called me "ma'am" when she gave me my food.

...now maybe it's just me, but I do not think I look like a girl AT ALL. In fact, if I were a girl, I would be a DAMN UGLY ONE. And yet people still persist in thinking I'm a woman. orz

Let's Positive Linking!
- The Postmodern Article Generator. I think my fellow academics on the flist will appreciate this...
- ...as well as documentation on that absurd, parody cultural physics article that actually got published in a serious journal. I'd heard about it before, but this is my first time reading it, and WOW it really is nonsensical (especially reading the author's lucid explanation of its absurdities in the following article). XD
- SONIC IN SUPER SMASH BROS. BRAWL I'M SO EXCITED I CAN'T STOP TYPING IN CAPS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (sorry, but I remember fantasizing about this with my schoolfriends back in the 16-bit days and thinking about HOW AWESOME IT WOULD BE)
- A great fake anti-piracy commercial. I especially like the part about crapping in the policeman's helmet. (God, why am I so scatological lately? Between my last post about the opera-singing feces boss from Conker and this, I'm getting pretty bad...and that's not counting sitting all the way through the German priest/nun scheisse video [livejournal.com profile] jokersama showed me last night. For some reason I'm finding poo way funnier than I have since I was, like, 8.)

Also TONIGHT I BUY THE FFT PSP REMAKE WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

SERIOUSLY WTF I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS CANON, GUYS. HOW DID SQUEENIX GET THIS HOMOGAY PAST DISNEY?

Addendum 1: Sadly, this comic really is just barely removed from the actual events of the game.
Addendum 2: It's so weird watching Kairi now after watching Heroes, since Kairi is voiced by Claire-bear. XD
