Damn it, Square-Enix, you're slowly starting to piss me off. Why the hell are you making Final Fantasy XIII-2?

First it was Final Fantasy XIII Versus or whatever it's called, which has another boring angsty male protagonist (who looks like the lovechild of Squall and Cloud) who hangs out with a bunch of boring dudes that were specifically designed for yaoi fanfiction, and one chick named Stella who looks like the only worthwhile character in the whole game.

Then it was Final Fantasy XIV -- online. Another RPG. Woo.

Then you're making another Dissidia game, in which a crude gesture is made towards Tifa's cleavage, because the only valuable thing about Tifa is her boobs apparently.

And now you're making a sequel to XIII?

You know what I want? I want Final Fantasy VII remade for the PS3. That's what fans have been asking you to do for years. Way to completely disregard what we actually want. But at this point, I'm not sure I want you to be held responsible for that, considering you don't even know what the fuck you're doing with your characters anymore.

Ever since the Enix merger, you suck so much, Square-Enix.

Um, okay, this is an instrumental piece from a movie based on a video game, but it does make me happy after I listen to it. And I think it's a beautiful song that needs to be shared.

I started playing Final Fantasy XII yesterday. Instead of finishing Final Fantasy VIII or X, I'm playing this one. S-Somebeody stop me.

Spoilers? I mean, this game came out awhile ago and I haven't gotten very far into it yet, but I thought it suits as a fair warning for people who haven't played it yet. )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (been waiting for a miracle)
Well, I beat the game.

Give me a little while to give my finalized pros and cons of the game, as well as my impression on the game overall. All I've got to say is that it definitely wasn't what I expected at all.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (I made a mistake)
So. Chapter twelve.

Spoilers! )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (I'm half-doomed and you're semi-sweet)
I was been playing Final Fantasy XIII last night, to get through my missions, buff up my characters, and get ready for the next chapter. Well. One of the missions was completely insane.

Spoilers? I don't think it's that much of a spoiler, since it concerns a common 'Easter egg' in the Final Fantasy series, but it mentions characters' relationships and other things. )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (all my troubles seemed so far away)
I picked up Final Fantasy XIII once again, for the first time in a few weeks. I'm near the end of chapter eleven. Instead of ending that, I'm grinding and completing missions so I don't completely get my ass kicked in the next chapter.

Some notes/opinions are under the cut. Um, obviously there's going to be OMG SPOILERS )

Little Sister: Did I tell you about my dream last night? Hope was in it! I just woke up in the middle of the night and he was standing by the closet, looking at me. I was all, "...Why are you here?" And he said, "Because I am, okay?!" We talked for awhile and then he started to cry. He was very sensitive. I asked him what type of music he liked and he yelled, "THERE IS NO HOPE!"

Me:...You have the worst dreams ever.

At least it wasn't my lame dream last night in which I was the only Barret/Tifa shipper who couldn't convince anyone as to why Tifa should dump Cloud and go get with Barret instead. It was kind of horrible.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (blow my speakers up)
YES

YES

OH GOD YES I BEAT HIM YES I DID OH MY GOD YES

IT TOOK ME ONE DAY AND A FEW HOURS TO DO IT, BUT I FINALLY DID IT, AND I BEAT THE BATTLE IN THREE MINUTES, FUCK YEAAAAAAH.

(um, SPOILERS FOR FFXIII? It's related to my last agonizing entry.)
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ([av] I am in love with you)
So tired. I've been awake since five o'clock this morning. @_@; I can't wait to get to sleep tonight, because I had a bad day and I want to put it behind me.

I got The Princess on the Frog on Blu Ray today! It's great. (And I spazzed out because OMG, THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE'S COMING OUT IN APRIL, EEEEEE.)

I played through Final Fantasy XIII a bit more today, and I've finally reached chapter eight. Obviously there's a huge spoiler warning here. Nothing major, but I'm putting a warning up just in case anyone else hasn't reached that point yet.

SPOILERS )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ([nana] . . .)
I DID IT. I BEAT BULBASAUR. IT TOOK ME A FEW HOURS, BUT I FINALLY DID IT.

And I did it under ten minutes and fifteen seconds, at six minutes and fifty-seven seconds.

KISS MY ASS, BULBASAUR.

fucking boss fights ain't got nothing on me.

Nearing the end of Final Fantasy VIII over here, and just let me say...I totally ship Squall/Rinoa now. I was 'okay' with them in the beginning, but then they both tugged at my heart strings in disc 3 and made me all teary-eyed. I need icons of them! But I don't, so have an Zidane/Dagger one instead.

I'm defeating all of the side-quests first. I'm trying to get all of the GF. I already got Tonberry, and I'm trying to get Behemoth, but I have a feeling I'll have to return to it after leveling up. The Ruby Dragon keeps kicking my ass. @_@; (Also, leveling up is going to be a pain in the ass. Squall is level 61 and some characters are still at level 20-ish. /whine, too lazy to level up.)

RANDOMLY. Nostalgia Critic/Channel Awesome reviewed Quest For Camelot last night, and lulz, I tried watching that years ago and it was just as bad as it was described. But now I want to see the animated musical of The King and I get ripped to shreds. (PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one who remembers that film.)

AAAAAAUGH.

Okay, quick question to those of you that played Final Fantasy VIII:

Do I really have to play the card games? :\

Personally I can't stand card games. They're aggravating. I hated them in FFIX, and I hate them even more in FFVIII, and I completely ignore real card games in real life. I hate losing them and 85% of the time, I lose a game. Each and every time I lose and get a great card taken away from me, I literally can't accept that and restart my game so I can keep those cards. If I keep doing this, I'm probably going to lose my mind. And probably break the PS3.

I know I can get special items through the game, but are these special items really that important? What can I get out of the card games that are actually useful, or can I just ignore the existence of these games and be okay near the end?
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ([kh] we live on front porches)
I think PS2 is on its last leg. Whenever scenes change, during game play or cut scenes, it lags. It takes a full minute to change scenes. I can always get another PS2, but it surprises me because I've had this PS2 Slim for a long time and it's breaking on us now. :\ (I suspect it's because my little sister never turns off the console when she's done playing them. I almost always find it running for hours, without anyone using it, whenever my sister plays a game and forgets to turn it off. PS2, PS3, the Wii, anything that can play a game. I wish the PS2 had these controls to lock someone out of the PS2 console, because it's starting to get on my nerves, not to mention how expensive these consoles were.)

I was playing Kingdom Hearts 2, and the only real thoughts I have on it is my aggravation over the voices of the Final Fantasy characters. Some of them are just awful.
(a) Mae Whitman can never be Yuffie to me, because whenever she opens her mouth, all I hear is, "HI, I'M KATARA." (Which isn't a bad thing! It's just that Whitman has one of those voices that never escapes you once you've heard her play one character.)
(b) Cid sounds like he's sixty instead of forty-something. I get that he's older than the other characters, but he's not that old.
(c) Aerith. Every voice Aerith's had with the exception of Crisis Core has been terrible. Why can't they figure out which voice actress suits her? She's had three in total so far, and all of them sound too ridiculously soft-spoken. And her voice actress in KH2, Mena Suvari, sounds like she had a head cold, and as though she wasn't even trying with her lines. :\ Please, ppl, stick with Andrea Bowen from Crisis Core from now on.

The only voices I don't cringe whenever I hear them belong to Leon, Cloud, and Sephiroth. (Well, the second game for Sephiroth, since they realized casting a member from the pop group N*Sync to play an extremely popular, menancing villain like Sephiroth wasn't exactly a good idea, and thankfully picked up George Newbern to play Sephiroth since then.) There's Tifa and the others, but I haven't really heard their voices yet, and I forget what they sound like in the Kingdom Hearts series.

And I realize I'm rambling, so I'm going to end this entry with a completely random realization that I haven't been reading a lot lately, which disappoints me greatly. I think I'm going to start getting around to House of Leaves, BUT I AM SCARED, YOU GUYS.

On that note, Sev, I just found something related to our little inside jokes. A picture from Tumblr... )

I purchased Tomb Raider II and Final Fantasy VIII last night! I played a little bit of Tomb Raider II today. I'm at the Opera House, and oh man, the PS1 graphics did not transfer well over to the PS3. Either some parts of the game are pitch black or really, really bright. But it's fun! (Also, I locked the butler in the freezer, and it gave me so much satisfaction.) And I still remember the cheats for level skipping and getting all of the weapons. Which helps me, because I die a lot playing this game.

I started up FFVIII for a few minutes, and yeah, the opening sequence is still one of my favorites from the Final Fantasy series. <3

Also, posted a meme last night! Leave me some comments, plz?
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
Feeling better than I did the past few days. I'm trying to look on the brighter side of the situation. I keep reminding myself that everyone else is okay.

Currently I'm still plugging away at Final Fantasy X. Last night, I experienced Tidus and Yuna's epic first kiss and my characters reached the Calm Lands, which is a great place to level up. I seriously need to work on my characters' abilities. I have some thoughts about the game underneath the cut. Have a cut! )

I beat Final Fantasy IX tonight...er, today, and before I go to bed and stop being a major dork (okay, that'll never change, who am I kidding), have some run-on sentences and thoughts.

Final thoughts! Sort of. Not really. More will come when I'm not tired. )

I am taking a nap, then I am possibly taking another one. Away I go!
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (❝pretty girls make me nervous❞)
So, 6AM. I’ve defeated disc three of Final Fantasy IX.

I have not-so-coherent thoughts, but thoughts I wish to share nonetheless!

Spoilers, of course. Unless you don't care about the game/already played it, approach with caution.

Scattered thoughts and run-on sentences about characters, ships, and complaints about gameplay because I am anal! )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (❝her face is the map of the world❞)
I started playing Final Fantasy IX again last night. I, uh, played all day and I'm nearly at the end of disc one. 8D;

Let me say, Quina is fun to play with, but it's a pain in the ass to get him/her/whatever to eat enemies without Dagger's scan ability at hand.

Also, the card games are pretty much useless.

More on that later. Right now, have a meme from [livejournal.com profile] escalove!

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favourite character, favourite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged.


I feel like my journal is turning into a meme-filled blog, but w/e, it's fun.
