Day 11: Favourite Teenager
I’m tempted to go with the ‘Flashback Teens’ but I’ll say Tambry.
Day 10: Place I’d Like to go to
I assume they mean in Gravity Falls, or at least on the show. Probably the arcade, that place looks stellar. Anything else come to mind? Summerween Super Store. I wonder what it’s like the rest of the year? Do you think it’s a store that changes it’s name to the Summerween Super Store around the holiday?
Day 09: Favourite Minor/Background Character
I really want to give Trembley a shout out one day, but if he a Minor Character? only been in one episode, but he’s the main player in it. That said, I don’t think he’s more prevalent in the episode than, someone like Blubbs, and I’m pretty sure he’s thought of as minor. He’s not a background character, but he’s definitely supporting. Okay, I’m...
Day 08: Favourite Moment
I dunno man. Let’s go with a joke. Carrying a pane of glass between two boats. Ah man. Hilarious!
Day 07: Scariest Moment
Hard to say. I’m sure if I watched this growing up there’d be some scary moments, but these days I assume it’ll all work out. So let’s not say, Scary, but Horrific. Like, I know it’ll be fine in the end, so I’m not afraid for them, but stuff does happen that would be terrifying in real life. I’m drawn to the Inconveniencing. There’s quite a lot....
Day 06: Favourite Outfit/Sweater
Mystery Dipper. (Wow, I’ve never answered one of these so quickly before. Should I talk about it? Naw.) Man, the more I think about it (read as, look up images) the more really outstanding outfits I see in this show. You’ve got Fantasy Wendy’s Dress, Tumbleweed Terror Trappings, and Soos in a Fez. Still Mystery Dipper though. Oh man and then there’s Summerween...
Day 05: Favourite AU
Okay, with the “Fan Theory” I was okay, since it is at least an idea of something that could happen. But this? What is this? This is pure fandom, which has nothing to do with anything anymore. I really do not care. Sorry Gravity Falls Fandom. Can I be a fan of something without having to try to change it? Thank you.[[MORE]] But this question is unresolved so instead we’re...
Day 04: Favourite Fan Theory or Headcanon
What? Uh, sure. I probably won’t go with anything that’s floating around the community, because I don’t care about that. But do I personally have any theories? Not actively, but sure let’s see. The Mailman is a Werewolf. Because I want to draw the mailman. Because he’s cool.
I always think I want a role playing game that’s rather rules light and guides a story, rather than these combat heavy, complex systems you see. But whenever I play a game like the latter I really love tinkering with a system. Man, I don’t even know what I want.
I’ve always liked the song Teleport, by The Future, off of Nerdcore Now Vol. 1 As you might be able to guess, it is impossible to do a Google Search for a band called The Future. Even if you add, “music” or “nerdcore” you’re still going to get results like “The Future of Music” Despite this, it turns out that if I’d just thought to read the...
I said a thing on google+[[MORE]] It’s not very eloquent. There are these two conflicting things in role playing game design that I want to talk about. Mechanics that allow you to do anything, that you can imagine, versus specific abilities that do a single thing. I always think that I want the open mechanic, but in practice whenever I encounter the specific abilities, I love them. I guess...
Day 03: Favourite Monster/Creature
Nothing springs to life on the top of my head. So let’s consult a list. Manataur’s are cool, Multibear is cool. Let’s check the Mystery Shack attractions. SIXPACKALOPE! Oh man and it totally works! I mean, there’s no way Stan actually taxidermied a real human torso right? Riight? Calling it right now. That thing’s a real creature.
20DGF Day 02: Least Favourite Character
Gideon Gleeful. I know I’m supposed to hate him. But that doesn’t stop it from still being true. I’m also not a big Old Man McGucket fan. I feel there are a lot of side characters tend to be a different kind of strange than I want in my Gravity Falls. But Gideon still wins. I feel terrible whenever I see his Mom. He is just a horrible human being (?)
20DGF Day 01: Favorite Character
uThat’s where we’re starting? well alright. Probably have to go with Stanford Pines. He’s nuts, but not in the way a lot of the side characters are. Also, I just can’t get over how a pathologically lying kleptomaniac is a protagonist on a children’s show. I drew a picture which severely creeps me out. So I scribbled this as a replacement. By the way, you can...
20 Days of Gravity Falls
Welp. I’ve been a little bummed since 30 days ended. Time for new drawing prompts. 20 Days? Whatevs. Day 01: Favorite Character Day 02: Least Favorite Character Day 03: Favorite Monster/Creature Day 04: Favorite Fan Theory or Headcanon Day 05: Favorite AU Day 06: Favorite Outfit/Sweater Day 07: Scariest Moment Day 08: Favorite Moment Day 09: Favorite Minor/Background Character ...
Pretty Young Things: Kill Bill vol. 1 →
socrappyicoulddie: Is this the first Tarantino film you’ve ever seen? No. I originally intended to mention in the write-up that I commonly have issues with his work. I honestly don’t understand why Pulp Fiction is a classic.
Do you ever see people brag about how long they’ve been reading homestuck? And they weren’t there from the beginning? I mean, it’s fine discovering something years after it starts. Obviously most people do, but. Don’t act superior than those who came along after. If you were around when Leaf was, then you can brag. Do you even know who Leaf is?
Kill Bill vol. 1
I just saw Kill Bill for the first time. I guess I’m a little late. Keep in mind I’ve only seen the first volume, so I realize the story is incomplete. But I’m not really concerned with the story. More the.. presentation. Let’s make one thing clear, I watched Kill Bill for one reason. Chiaki Kuriyama. Battle Royal is an amazing movie, and she just might have been the...
Does anyone remember that banana Pyramid Scheme that used to be in Runescape? What was with that?
Somehow I ended up browsing the Balamb Garden tag on tumblr. I can’t believe how much I’m melting over this game. But not just the game. Simply Balamb Garden itself. EDIT: I’m seeing a lot of girls wearing Balamb Garden shirts, and a couple with SeeD tattoos. It’s occurring to me that, maybe FFVIII is regarded negatively, is that it didn’t resonate with a male...
Apparently I can’t post images from my iPod unless they’re taken at the time of writing the post? Wow there must have been a less convoluted way to saying that.
DRAW YOURSELF AS A VIDEO GAME BOSS! (bonus points...
As you know, I’m a sucker for this crap. And I’ve been missing 30 Days since it ended, so this is right up my alley at the moment. Drawing prompt courtesy of http://vriskamindfangserket.tumblr.com/ First thing I need to say before I continue is that http://bluescaper.tumblr.com/ once drew this fantastic image of me as Griever from FFVIII: Give her all your loving. But I still...
Phineas and Ferb, you can never guess if you’ll break the laws of physics, or be educational. Probably both. Which is awesome.
I feel so creepy when I sing along with the chorus of K.Flay’s miniVANS.
30 Days of Gaming - Recap
Day 1 - Very first video game. Day 2 - Your favorite character. Day 3 - A game that is underrated. Day 4 - Your guilty pleasure game. Day 5 - Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were). Day 6 - Most annoying character. Day 7 - Favorite game couple. Day 8 - Best soundtrack. Day 9 - Saddest game scene. Day 10 - Best gameplay. Day 11 - Gaming system of choice. Day 12 - A game...
Day 30 - Your favourite game of all time
Final day. Wells like such an anti-climactic ending. On paper it sound like a big thing to end on, but in practice, you can probably guess if you’ve read the previous 29 days. There was one time when I was considering if Radiata had nudged up to the win. But no. A favourite of this type will stay static, because of the sentimental value and nostalgia. Forever, Final Fantasy VIII will stay...
Day 29 - A game you thought you wouldn’t like, but...
Well here we are at the end. Well there’s one day after this, but seriously, favourite game of all time? What’s there to say on that one. This one though, wow, where to start. This is going to require some thinking.[[MORE]] The most accurate game that comes to mind quickly is Bastion. People tried to get me to play that game for a while before I played it, and it’s not that I...
Day 28 - Favourite game developer
I expect to be stuck on this for a while. What makes the best developer? Consistently, good, or one time made a favourite game? Look at Square and Tri-Ace. Other than FFVIII, I don’t care much about Square titles. There are a couple good ones, but none that I get really excited about. Tri-Ace made Radiata, which I love, but they also made Star Ocean, which I only played one game from the...
Day 27 - Most epic scene ever
First thing. Ever? Wow, that’s a lot of pressure. So yeah, there’s no way I’m going to accurately answer this. I figure there are three types of “scenes” that could qualify. Cutscenes. Extended animation skills. Actual gameplay.[[MORE]] Cutscenes are the most obvious, and video games are known to have some ridiculous moments happening between the action, leaving...
Day 26 - Best voice acting
How do you define this? I imagine deciding a best voice acting to be very difficult. See this isn’t the best writing, its the quality of the voice acting itself to gauge. I am terrible at measuring something like that, I can only deduce if it’s good or bad. What makes the best? I probably will allow writing affect my answer.[[MORE]] Quick skim of my steam library comes up with this...
Day 25 - A game you plan on playing
I have such a backlog of games. I’m going to take this question more specifically then it’s worded. There are a lot of games I want to play eventually, but for an answer I’m going to restrict myself to something a truly plan to play in the near future. Then again, there are a select few games that I’ve been meaning to play for a very long time, and they could make...
Day 24 - Favourite classic game
When I think of classic games I think of games from before I started gaming. I think of games that I might have played once or twice, but never really played. Y’know what I mean? Anyway, let’s get a definition up in here: I’m having trouble finding one to be honest. It can’t just be any game from the beginning to early 90’s can it?[[MORE]] I’ve played games...
Day 23 - Game you think had the best graphics or...
Wow. There are a lot to choose from. Graphics are so subjective. Personally I don’t like the rugged “realistic” graphics you see in modern shooters and stuff. I like my games with a little polish. Like one of them fancy new FF games that I haven’t played. I’m going to only use in game graphics, just to make the distinction. no per-rendered cinematics in this...
Day 22 - A game sequel which disappointed you
I have a hard time thinking of sequels I’ve played at all. Let alone ones that were a disappointment. I guess I just play a lot of standalone games. I mean, I know there are a lot of games i played in the past that I just have a hard time remembering at all. Not every game stick with me, y’know?[[MORE]] So first up, list of game sequels. To count the game has to be a sequel that I...
Finally watched Brave. Thoughts? I don’t know how to put what I’m feeling into words. When I first saw trailers for Brave I immediately thought it’d be terrible. But when it came out I heard nothing but good things. Well, firstly, It certainly wasn’t bad for the reasons I thought it would be. Well, okay, it’s not bad at all. But there are things wrong with it, and...
Day 21 - Game with the best story
Final Fantasy VIII. I’m done, I really don’t think there’s anything else to say. Now I’m starting to wonder if some game is going to occur to me later, but I don’t think anything can beat FFVIII’s story. Without even taking the time to compare, I have no doubt that I wouldn’t be able to think of anything better. I guess I could talk about why it’s...
Day 20 - Favourite genre
Due to technical difficulties, I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I’m going to write, and I don’t think there’s much to say. Also, what am I going to draw? How do you draw a genre?[[MORE]] There’s a lot of things I could say about what would make the best game, but if I was going to just use a singular accepted term, that narrows things down a lot. What I...
While my internet was down, I played all of “Chocobo Tales”. I’m amazed how much I enjoyed it. It’s about a 20 hour game. It’s basically just a series of minigames, but the way the games are framed is executed very well. They try to have the purpose between the minigames as sort of a grinding to increase your prowess in combat. But the combat is really just another...
30days on hiatus due to Internet difficulties. This is why there was no post yesterday. If all goes well there will still be a post today. But no promises. Toodles.
Day 19 - Picture of a game setting you wish you...
Wow, this one actually calls for a picture. I’m not one for wishes. I’m pretty content. But this is certainly an interesting question so let’s tackle it. Some settings are great for games, but would suck to live through.[[MORE]] So let’s assume I’m me. Just some guy, not a badass warrior or whatever. Now, how much like me would I be if I grew up in that setting?...
So I was watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog and I noticed this in the credits. Obviously not an uncommon thing to find in movie credits but. You have a character, literally named “Dead Bowie” Good luck with that. (I cannot be the first to find this funny)
Day 18 - Favourite protagonist
Wow. For some reason I didn’t just start typing. I actually sat here and thought about not knowing where to start. Usually I just type and let it go (as you can probably tell) but for some reason I needed this stupid rambley bit to get the ball rolling. Anyway. Protagonists. The big there here is what you want to play as. This isn’t a movie, or a book. it’s a game. If you want...
Day 17 - Favourite antagonist
Day 17 already huh? Getting into the good stuff now. Favourite Antagonist, and Protagonist tomorrow. Nice.[[MORE]] A good Antagonist is complicated. So is a protagonist but I think they’re more straight forward, it’s just about what you as the player are looking for. So what makes a good Antagonist? I guess there are a few categories. There are the ones that truly piss you off....
Day 16 - Game with the best cut scenes
This should be interesting. What makes a cutscene good. Is it graphics, score, cinematography, voice acting, flow with the rest of the game. A combination of them all of course. So let’s see how this breaks down.[[MORE]] I think a big thing is consistency. This is the game with the best cutscenes, not the best cutscene in video gaming. One of the first games to come to mind in Kingdom...
