So, Ace Attorney 5. About fucking time, CAPCOM.

Seriously, not sure if want. Because they just said "yeah, okay, we're making the game" and that's it. So my level of enthusiast or dread will vary depending on the following factors:

a) Main characters: is it Phoenix-tachi or Apollo-tachi?
b) Producer: is it Takumi or Eshiro?

For a, I think it's not a surprise that I'll be "meh" if it's yet another Phoenix story. I'm horribly attached to the AJ cast and their cuteness, and I want to play with them again in a game that's not a hot mess and/or hijacked by hobo Nick. I wouldn't mind if they mention or show the old characters who were M.I.A. in AJ:AA, as long as they have tiny cameos or small roles. Like, if they have Apollo facing Franziska or a thirty-something Miles, I will choke a bitch because they already have their spinoff and I'm sick of their faces by now. I really want more Klavier, but since changing main prosecutors is a tradition, I'll just be glad if he appears at all.

For b... I have a history of RAEG with Eshiro. I'll cry and mourn for the franchise if Takumi doesn't come back, because I'm sure that guy will screw it up again. I have my Disapproval Stephen Colbert gif ready.

Honestly, I think I'm more squee about the new anniversary illustrations because EEEEEEEEH THEY'RE DRAWING MY PEEPS AGAIN AND IT'S ADORABLEEEEE ♥♥♥ The last one is perfect.

It's 2012 everywhere, so yay first year post!

Let's see, I could make the regular fandom meme for the year, but instead of that because no gaming in that thing, I'm going to do a manual year in review.

Anime and manga )

Animation and real action television )

Comics )

Gaming )

Books )

That was long! But considering I barely posted this year, I had a lot of feelings.

THIS IS SO UGLY AND SLOW AND UGLY. Not to mention the real issues: in only one night, someone was triggered like whoa because no subject lines.

I just. You know the jokes about LJ wanting to become FB? Every time less funnier and more true. Ewwwwwwww. Do I really have to set custom pages now if I want to stay here? Uuuuuugh. I can't even see my own posts without wanting to scream.

ETA: People are trying to recreate old comments with CSS. Meanwhile, I changed to the least ugh Minimalist layout for the moment since it's the least intrusive for my taste, IDK.

Happy Hanukkah for those who celebrate it. Happy Winter Solstice in advance :P

→ I feel a little too excited for finishing Ocarina of Time... AGAIN. Now to try the Master Quest (I almost type sword, LOL) mode. And man, the ending has some plotholes that make me wonder... and I don't mean the timelines and time travel shenanigans. I mean, how the fuck are the Kokiris partying at Lon Lon without turning into Skull Kids?! Makes no sense whatsoever.

→ Why the fuck are Hollywood making a sequel for the Clash of the Titans remake? That movie was SO SHITTY, I had to watch it with Rifftrax and it was still dull despite of the memetic one-liners and the MST crew mocking. It's THAT awful. Look, I don't care that you have actual titans now. This is an abomination.

Persona 4 anime, I'm just on the wagon still because anime!Teddie is so precious. No idea if Kappei helps with the squeaky moe voice or what. You know, I think I'm going to write a giant post about Teddie because he is my favorite P4 character and he needs more love. And stupid theories. And long eyelashes, apparently! Meanwhile, I shall ignore that guy with the gray hair for my own sanity.

Um, well

Some of you might've noticed I did a winter cleaning and went on a friends cut frenzy of sorts.

If you were cut, um, I'm really sorry. There are many reasons, which can be:
a) It's been years since we've met, and I feel like we've fell apart or were never able to connect at all, so maybe my LJfriendship is dragging you guys. This was a really hard decision, if this was your case, and I hope there are no hard feelings?
b) Your journal is pretty much dead and we weren't that close
c) I friended you in a meme and I honestly can't remember or differentiate you because we've barely talked ever since. So I feel awkward trying to remember who you were every time I see you, and perhaps the feeling is mutual
d) You defriended me first one day, so it's not like you are reading this anyway

My posts are mostly public, so I guess you can still read me if you want. It's not like they're so interesting, but just in case: you're not missing much because I don't read you. I'm keeping here people I like to talk to, close friends, and people who don't know me but I like to read them.

If you still want to be in my flist or that I give you another chance to click if you're under category c and I don't know who the hell you are when I should, then by all means we can talk it over here. And I guess that's it. I hope you'll be happy and have awesome holidays. Bye!

You know what, I'm so disappointed at P4A I can't even. I can't believe they turned Yu into a big douchebag and as much as a homophobe. The bathhouse episode was pretty bad, but like Kanji did, I assumed he'd accept this and get over it. So imagine when the camp pseudofiller has him saying those things to poor Kanji. UGH!! I was enjoying this anime, really! I liked how they handled Yukiko and Chie, for instance. Rise is going good, if we ignore Yu being too present because I can't see his fucking face anymore.

Fuck it. The game's MC is the only protagonist that exists, and he's pretty tolerant and cool, and I consider this OOC travesty just an icon fodder. The main reason I'm not dropping this? I want to make pretty icons for my RP account and they still haven't gotten to Teddie's alter form. Whatever.

Hmmmmmm, let's go with happier things. I'm giving my 3DS good use. Ocarina either is easier than I remember, was watered down a bit, or I've played this too much and I remember more than I thought. It's not a bad thing! I like easy because I'm a cheap idiot! And the sooner I finish, the sooner I get Master Quest mode.

Abyss goes slower, but then again this is an RPG with a lot of shit to do and characters to grind. OMG, I had forgotten that Ion was such a cute nice kid ;A; Pre-Akzeriuth Luke gets more unbearable the more times you play this game, too. Saint Binah is a gorgeous town and I wish I could go back later. Why are your cities so beautiful, Malkuth?

Oh, and my brother bought Skyward Sword! It's the special edition with the golden wiimote motion plus and the 25th Anniversary orchestra CD. I finally tried it today for a bit, and my arm was tired before I had even saved my bird. If can't even imagine how my bro can stand it, considering he's a lefty and he's having problems to adapt to the controls. Maybe that's why he hadn't played in a couple of days? Maybe he's ragequitting? I don't blame him, Nintendo did a dick move by alienating the left-handed clients.

I still have to write a mythology fanfic for a challenge. I have decided the story, but I haven't felt inspired yet with my family being pests or "improving" my mood. Nnnng.

So, how are you guys doing?
taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Ocarina of Time / this is a song of hope)
What? It IS.

Remember my nerdgasm over the Zelda-themed 3DS pack? I BOUGHT IT. It arrived yesterday morning and fdhjsgfssdfg.

I also bought Tales of the Abyss whose European release date, incidentally, was also November 25th. So now I have the pretty console and a very nice 25th Anniversary of Zelda golden poster with several Links, Ocarina of Time, and this one, which makes the early Christmas present well justified.

U MAD, AMERICA? |D *puts sunglasses and trollface on*

It's a little sad that the only things I really needed to buy this otherwise useless gadget were ports of favorite games of mine. Nintendo needs to hurry up with the good new games.

So, the software that comes with the Wii-- I mean 3DS, is interesting but a one trick puppy. Once I played the AR games twice, I kinda lost interest. I've never watched a movie in 3D, but I like the 3D mode in this thing... as long as it's in a very soft setting, just enough to make the objects and characters pop. To the max it's just a fucking blur to me. But one milimeter is cool.

The battery is as dreadful as I was told. I remembered last night, when it died on me, that one of the reasons I was waiting for a lite version was a better battery life. Nothing I can do, I guess.

I'm in the middle of Lord Jabu Jabu so I'm finishing with young Link soon. In Abyss I'm in the Cheagle Woods. It really makes me happy to be able to play again these games that meant so much to me, in new ways. Hell, I'm just glad I can actually PAY for Abyss as I had to play a pirated NTSC PS2 copy (this statement probably makes me a bad Latina). Of course Spaniards are whining and not buying it because it's in English, which is no surprise at all.

But yeah, Ocarina is fun and even pretty in 3D. There's still not much of a point for Abyss being 3(DS) yet, but then again I still can't set shortcuts on the touch screen. But fuck that, I love both games.

Reposting my 11/11/11 nerdosity. So many elevens in this screencap!

taotrooper: It's a polar bear dancing the hula; your argument is invalid (Ocarina of Time / this is a song of hope)
So I hadn't bought a 3DS yet because I wanted either a good deal or a pack with Ocarina. And I was thinking that the latter was not going to happ--

OH MY. And it's for Europe!

I didn't really want to buy a solid black thing because my NDS is black too, and I liked the blue and red ones. But look at this motherfucker, just look at it! It's gorgeous. I was worried about the price, but apparently it's going to be 199€. The lowest I've seen a console go is 166, and the lowest I've seen the game go is 37 (summing 203€ total), so if that's the price it's actually a sweet deal!

So basically, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, NINTENDO. I'm glad I waited.

Plus, this Halloween sucked balls.

I don't really know what to say right now, but I've felt bad about not posting for a while here. I'll try to write a real post later this week, but on the meantime have a meme.

Give me a fandom and I will tell you:

* My canon OTP
* OTP that hasn’t happened but I SHIP IT
* Most badass character
* Pairing I am not a fan of
* Character I’d wanna be best friends with
* Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another)
* Favourite friendship
* Character I want to adopt or be adopted by

I'm really liking the first episode of Persona 4. It is really rushed and it probably gives a different vibe to non-gamer people, but you know what? It was still lots of fun, fairly faithful, and props to the animators for making this many visual references to the gameplay. Besides, if they had gone on and on about the school life before the first TV excursion, that episode would've been boring as fuck. Cutting just after Tutorial Fight was perfect from a narrative point of view. I do worry that the characters will stay too shallow if they run too much to get the plot done, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt as it's just the intro episode.

Also, I never found game!MC or Souji physically attractive, but Yu? DAYUM SON.

But nevermind that, because yesterday I finished Son of Neptune. I loved it ♥ I puked rainbows. I didn't hate Camp Jupiter at all; the differences were fascinating, and the fact it's not just direct children of demigods is also pretty cool. I loved the new characters (Reyna, Hazel, Frank, Ella, Hylla, Arion, etc. Even if Octavian was a douche, he was interesting.) I loved the returning faces from PJO too. It was nice to have Percy back in the narrative and I'm glad he didn't steal the spotlight from the other two main characters. Honestly, I didn't find any of them a canon Sue. It's true that Riordan is making the Seven exponentially more and more speshul snowflakes, but I think that's the point? This is a gigantic (durr hurr) quest, they need extraordinary people with really freaky abilities and weapons. If anything, I think Jason is looking blander and blander as we meet more characters. Percy was still very Percy, so it's not the amnesia dulling him. And while Frank and Hazel's powers were as overhyped and underused compared to, say, Piper and Leo's, at least their personalities were very endearing and well shaped.

And while I did curse because of the cliffhanger, it was for the wrong reasons. As I'm not a huge Percy/Annabeth shipper (I just didn't ship anything with kids until this book), I don't give a shit if Riordan trolled people re: Percabeth (actually, let me look for the popcorn and drink the salty tears of the fandom). No, I wanted to see both trios meeting at last, especially Leo's reaction to the looks on Hazel/Percy/Frank's faces! Man, this is going to be sooooo awkward.

Long time no see :o

→ Raaaaaah, I'm sure that I won't get my copy of Son of Neptune until a week or two after it's out! Why? Because book store is slow and uses the slowest British Royal Mail option. My order included two other books, and they sent them on the 19th-20th. I still haven'y gotten them yet. Whenever they arrive, I'll count 10 days after it. Welp, I guess I'll have to hunt for the ebook copy anyway... /impatient

→ The season start of the ponies was quite good (despite the fact no one explained where IS Luna). May I say I loved Discord? I'm a sucker for trickster troll villains, and he managed to be terrifying and funny at the same time. I'll miss you, magnificent bastard.

→ Related to the above. Is it wrong I want to retake Star Trek: TNG because of My Little Pony? I really liked Q in the one episode I saw with him, and Discord was pretty much Q meets Drosselmeyer from Princess Tutu, so.

→ Back to cartoons, my jaw dropped when I saw how the Adventure Time fandom on Tumblr is basking on femslash. Granted, I do ship Bubblegum/Marceline as well and I'm loving the fanart, but the whole explosion was just astonishing. I shake my head at the Mathematical youtube channel wank, and I really doubt this would ever be made canon no matter what anyone does. Except maybe Natasha Allegri, bless her.

→ I'm glad there will be a fourth season of Natsume Yuujinchou, if only because I can now marathon this one without feeling bad. This is one anime I'm okay with endless fillers because of its nature.

→ Welp, Who season finale tonight. Might or not post again, depending on the mess that happens.

Okay, so I got my Pottermore mail last night. I'm RainSilver82 in case someone wants to add me there. The important part about this thing is the wand and house, so let's go with that. My wand is cypress, 10 inches, phoenix feather core, slightly springy. Sounds neat. I got sorted to Honey Badger House! I like to think of myself as a Ravenpuff mix TBH, but a good amount of quizzes and LJ sorting comms have seen the Hufflepuff sometimes, so I was well prepared for this result. Recently I've felt that I've lost most of my Puff due to depression and being a selfish lazyass in my adult years, but okay. It's still cool. *insert Hufflepuff gif with that dancing guy with the chicken legs here*

The site itself... I did everything last night and now I don't know what else to do? I absolutely detest potions, only managed to brew 2 out of 5 -I've even lost a cauldron thanks to bottles being glitchy-, and I don't really want to experiment while there aren't means to gain new money. Duels are down right now, so fuck this shit. I feel kinda awful because we're last place, but I doubt 1pt per cooking disaster will help that much.

McGonagall's backstory is awesome. Sad, but awesome to know.

Ah, before I forget, [livejournal.com profile] insanepurin gave me 5 things to rant about like a week ago.

I'm sorry if you saw that and I apologize for the damage in your flist. I thought that crossposting plugin was turned off.

In case you missed it: I'm trying to resurrect the mythology blog in my domain, now with reviews. I posted one for Okami today because area of expertise and stuff. But yeah, technical difficulties and that bullshit got accidentally crossposted without LJ-cut.

Man, I didn't want to plug it like this...
