So I know you're just dying to know what I've been up to in my free time lately. Big surprise, it's VIDEO GAMES!
First of all, the PSP remake of Persona 2: Innocent Sin was released a few weeks ago, marking the first time this game was ever officially released outside Japan. I had the fan-translated original, but it would randomly freeze on me just enough to make me quit and wait for this one. I am infinitely happy because Persona 2 is my favorite Megaten game, and one of my fave games ever. (I count both games as one entity for convenience) It's really amazing, and I highly recommend it as long as you don't mind some pretty old-school gameplay, and by that I mean you will get raped if you don't know what you're doing (although they gave it an easy mode for the PSP). And I don't really ship many things, but THE TATSUYA/MAYA SHIP IS SOOOO STILL SAILING IN MY HEART.
Speaking of rape, okay actually not at all but I needed a segway, I started playing my new Dragon Age 2 file some more to get further before the new DLC came out. I had decided to basically remake the EXACT SAME character, do pretty much everything the same, except: I was gonna rivalmance Anders instead of friendship. Yes, that is the only difference, and yes, it bothered me enough to replay the entire game for it. But whatever, I'm like a honey badger, I don't give a shit. Now I know I could have just watched it on all the youtubes, but I refused to spoil it for myself, so I've seen up through all the act 2 stuff so far. I was afraid it'd still make me sad, just in a different way, but it's SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOODDDDDD!!!! Everyone who told me that, YOU ARE SO RIGHT. I had to change some of my choices I didn't necessarily want to in order to rack up dem points, but it was all worth it. It perfectly conveyed how I actually felt while playing ("I love you, but you're so fucking retarded") without being a giant raging dick AND you can yell at Justice. I don't even want to cut my wrists that much when I play anymore! Oh and I kinda also rivaled Merrill because after being nice to her the first time, my inner Dalish warden was like FUCK THIS SHIT. So almost every mage I know thinks I'm a jerk, and the ultimate irony is I'm a hippie mage-lover, I just think they're both being stupid. ;A;
I also finished the Mark of the Assassin DLC a couple of days ago. It was pretty fun, and very.... witty. Hawke talks a lot which is sort of weird, because it's even in pretty much every ambient conversation unlike in the regular game. Anyway, I've taken a bunch more screenshots I'll probably throw in the scraps for my own amusement.
ALSO, I haven't played it much (trying to finish the above mentioned games before I get sucked in) but I imported the European version of Xenoblade. Words cannot express how happy I am to finally be able to play this game. Seriously. I'm not even gonna try. Just.... play it.
ok done, thanks for pretending to read this~
