I beat Mass Effect 2 last night.

Spoilers! )

So, yeah, I might replay it. Make another f!Shepard with more renegade choices and romancing Garrus. Or maybe try my hand at a m!Shepard, but I doubt it. Maybe I'll wait until Mass Effect 3 is out to try my hand at a male protagonist, since none of the love interests in the second game really piqued my interest.

Straight Male Gamer told to get over it by Bioware.

Long story short: Straight Male Gamer complains about the bisexual options in Dragon Age 2. Bioware responds with this:

The romances in the game are not for “the straight male gamer”. They’re for everyone. We have a lot of fans, many of whom are neither straight nor male, and they deserve no less attention.

[...] The very best we can do is give everyone a little bit of choice, and that’s what we tried here. And the person who says that the only way to please them is to restrict options for others is, if you ask me, the one who deserves it least. And that’s my opinion, expressed as politely as possible.

Oh, Bioware. I knew there was a reason why I loved playing your games so much, and you just gave me another reason to adore you guys.

Dragon Age 2 is fun! Is it the first one? No, but it measures up pretty well as a stand alone game. (Although I will admit that the game is definitely set up for those who played the first one plus Awakening. I'm afraid of Awakening spoilers because I've yet to buy and play through it yet so I'm trudging through it cautiously. D:)

I'm in Act 2 so far. I've barely started it since I'm doing nothing but playing the side and companion quests first. That and I just haven't had the time or interest to really sit down and play through it. LIKE TONIGHT. I OUGHT TO BE PLAYING IT BUT MY SISTER HAS FRIENDS OVER AND THEY TOOK OVER THE CONSOLES FOR THE DAY. (Yes, I am making angry faces at the back of your head, sis. SO HARD.)

My scattered thoughts on it thus far. Mostly related to the romance because haw haw who cares about plot. Spoilers! )

Also, there is a sad amount of good Anders icons. And Merrill. I don't want to go deep into icon communities yet because I'm afraid I'll walk right into spoilers.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (sten thinks the cake is a lie)
So, tonight, Dragon Age decided that Alistair and my character were a thing. Seriously. I think I took too long picking someone or I did something right/wrong? All I know is that I literally just finished a companion quest when Alistair was asking Wynne for love advice. UHH, THANKS FOR INFORMING ME OF THIS, GAME, BUT WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?

(This is literally after my sister yelled at me to go for the Slutty Elf Guy. That's his name in this household. Yes, his name is Zevran, but he is forever known as Slutty Elf Guy. We're horrible. And it's already decided that my sister's got dibs on him when it's her turn to play after I beat my game.)

Either way, I let it play out because Alistair won me over with his pretty words. Without spoilers, here's the short version: no regrets on my part...yet. We'll see. I only got done with the Landsmeet so who knows how the rest of the story will play out.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
Is it me or is time passing by too fast lately? The things I thought I did just recently...were actually a long time ago, or not as recent as I thought it'd been. (Especially Livejournal comments you guys give me and I ... almost never reply to them. I read them, think, "Mmkay, I'll save that for later when I'm ready to word my thoughts," and two weeks later I'll finally notice it and go "AHH FUCK WHY.") Maybe it's because I haven't actually accomplished anything lately? Or my insomniac sleeping patterns? I don't know, I don't like it. Watch, this is probably in my head and I'll feel better about it a few months from now.

I've been playing a lot of Dragon Age lately. I have one huge (okay, small, but it's a big deal to me) dilemma with this game: Silly, pointless rambling nobody wants to read but I'm going to talk about it anyway. )

That's it for now. It's waaaaay past time for me to go to sleep so off I go.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
So I see that a few people on my flist have either done this meme already, or they're getting around to completing it. I wanted to give a crack at it. I'm not sure if I played too many games that will let me fill out all of the prompts, but I'm going to try. Here goes nothing!

Day 01 - Very first video game. )

I'm going to work a Bulls game today. Tomorrow, it's my birthday and thankfully I have the day off! (And this was without me even requesting the day off.) HOORAY FOR SLEEP.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (we live in front porches)
I've finally purchased Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep yesterday (er, on Monday), but I hadn't gotten around to really playing with it. Sabrina was more excited about the game, so she took over my PSP and played through Aqua's part almost immediately. I played...maybe five minutes of Aqua's story on my own game. From what I've seen and heard about it, it seems like it's going to be a fun game. I'm ridiculously excited to play as Aqua because that was my first character's name and THAT'S WAY TOO COOL.

While I bought Birth By Sleep, Dad also picked up a new Classic Controller Pro for our Wii, since the one I purchased already wore out. So, now I'm finally progressing in Ocarina of Time. (I literally almost WEPT when I got the Megaton Hammer. I couldn't reach that bitch with the lousy controller before.) I finally finished Gerudo Fortress--which was a huge pain in the ass because I'm a lousy ninja and I do even worst at aiming my arrows--and now I'm on my way to the Spirit Temple. Oh, Zelda, you never fail to entertain me for hours.

(Also, since I know the whole Sheik = Zelda thing is still a huge deal in the Zelda fandom, especially for Sheik/Link fans who prefer Sheik being a completely different character from Zelda, I can't help but laugh at everything. It's a little obvious that Sheik is Zelda in disguise. I knew that the first time I ever played the game. Although I wouldn't have minded Sheik and Link's *~epic romance~* if Sheik was actually a dude.)

Um. I should really DO THOSE 30 DAY MEMES I said I'd do. I'll start tomorrow. Yeah, tomorrow, if I remember. I've just been out of it lately. My stomach's bothering me and my sinuses seem to be flaring up every once in awhile. WHY IS EVERYONE GETTING SICK.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (fuck yeah!)
Still sick and fairly crabby, even with Panera Bread in my tummy, so I stole this meme from two awesome people on my flist.

Name a fandom and I'll give you 3 unpopular opinions.

An entire list of my fandoms can be found HERE. Ask for any of them. Even if I can't think of three, I'll try and come up with one, at least.

Other than that, I've been obsessed with Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. My character married the doctor and I finally upgraded my house to a two-story. Oh and she's due to have a baby after season Spring is over. D-Don't judge how excited I am about this.

Also, I've gotten around to watching the first season of Big Bang Theory, and now that I know what the show's about and the characters, I no longer care about it because it pretty much has the dumbest shipping war ever.

EDIT: For the meme, we've got Sailor Moon, Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Final Fantasy X, and Soul Eater. Feel free to ask for any other fandom!

I did it. I finally got old school Resident Evil for the PS3, and oh my God, Chris is such a pain in the ass to play. I definitely prefer Jill. Better weapons, cheesier dialogue, and because Barry cracks me up.

I played for a bit last night, went to bed, and I woke up at noon with -- you guessed it -- my little sister's cold. She's been suffering from a cold all week, and it was going to hit me sooner or later. I have a sore throat that's been persistent all day. I just hope it goes away by tomorrow or a few days. Getting sick really threw me off from some things I wanted to do.

The upside to this week is that we're finally getting nice, cool, windy weather. It's amazing. I was able to wear a turtleneck today!

30 Day Meme, SHIPPING )

I'll get started on them later. I'm busy trying to figure out how to get more Sims 2 EPs on my computer without having to buy new discs. :[

By the way, I've got Mario Galaxy 2. IT IS ALREADY INSANELY ADDICTING.

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'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 )
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (he felt just like love)
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)




(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.
