SO, IT TURNS OUT THAT I CAN'T USE PURGED USERNAMES WITHOUT BUYING A RENAME TOKEN.
FUCK YOU, TOO, LJ, FUCK YOU, TOO. D8
I'll be around at prufrocking
now. Still going around setting everything up, so it'll take a while, but yeah.
RIGHT SO. The aftermath of Ghana v. USA depressed me so much that I decided to watch the 1997 Oscar Wilde biopic.
I have no bloody idea why I thought that was a good idea.
"Oh, there are sex scenes? I'm sure they'll be tame!" BLOODY HELL, KYO, YOU SAID THAT TO YOURSELF TWICE ALREADY. IT'S A BLOODY EUROPEAN FILM. YOU SHOULD'VE LEARNED YOUR LESSON BY NOW.
sobs so much jude law ass.
the saddest thing is, i don't think i learned my lesson yet.
the first scene, i kept screaming at myself, "DEAR GOD, LOOK UP, KYO, LOOK UP, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD UP!!"
but it's okay, because martin sheen's nose made it all better.
/is going to hell
(I love how I'm such a prude when it comes to this stuff.)
But the history geek in me was displeased with how they made Constance die early for dramatic effect. but alas.
but still. jude law ass. i don't think i'm ever going to recover.
So, the minute I get on Horizon, as if it is cued by the Collector swarm, a fruit fly comes around me and starts circling around my head. I still have not killed it.
edit: I finished Horizon and then the bloody fly went away. |: AM NOT ENJOYING WHAT THIS IMPLIES.
This reminds me of the time it was storming while I was watching Finding Nemo (gave that weird 3D sound effect) or when THE FUCKING WEATHER KEPT RESPONDING TO P4'S IN-GAME WEATHER fffff
Dudes, I started Mass Effect 2 today and effectively played for about...4 or 5 hours straight. (I got hungry to the point of fainting two or three hours in, but that's because I kind of skipped both breakfast and lunch for the SAT today.) I recruited Mordin and Zaeed already, and Mordin is amazing. He talks like I do sometimes. (Something my friends kept mentioning yesterday. orz I am going to grow up to be one of those intellectuals who talk too much about stuff no one really understands. I'm actually talking fast again, like Salarians! fff This hasn't happened since I stopped debating.) I lol'd pretty hard when Mordin was talking about Kirrahe; the whole "Loved his speeches, though. HOLD THE LINE!" (It was honestly his face that sold it. Oh God, I'm really, really surprised that my graphics card can handle this game that well, since it came out this year.)
Also. EDI and Joker. I saw the whole "banter is lulz" comments on TVTropes, but didn't think it would be that funny.
I bloody love EDI. I snuck into the women's room for the lulz, and was laughing to myself about it, then EDI was like, "Commander, the men's room is on the port side of the ship." I subsequently laughed harder.
...all in all, I'm loving it because it's funny.
Sad because there's no more unlimited ammo to snipe the shit out of everyone anymore, though. :C
Transitioning from ME1 to ME2 was really harsh because of all the gameplay changes. I couldn't figure out how to get the bloody pistol from the weapons locker (yes, the very first bloody thing you do for the battle tutorial) because I'd customized my map and the tutorial was all wrong. Madface.
But oh man, whoever's in charge of directing cutscenes is a genius, because they're so much more cinematic than ME1. It's like Mass Effect went from indy to Hollywood! (Amusingly fitting, considering the movie deal.)
I wanted to baw a little when I saw Kaidan's picture on Shepard's desk. (Yes, I am awesome and modded the hidden gay option for awkward gheiness. It was indeed awkward -- especially the Almost Kiss scene lmao -- but hey, I liked Shepard and Kaidan together.)
The Normandy is so BIGGGG now. It was a little overwhelming at first.
But man, I hope ME3 will be this awesome.
.../wants to play more even though she had less than five hours of sleep
SO YEAH. I'M OK NOW. FRIENDS DRAGGED ME ON AN IMPROMPTU TRIP TO THE ZOO. IT WAS MADE OF WIN.
STOP MAKING ME FEEL EMOTIONS TOWARD POLYGON BLOCKS MORPHED INTO 3D FIGURES!!
I DIDN'T EVEN LIKE ASHLEY butbutbut watching her die made me go NOOOO and then Kaidan going all "She died...because of us" made me go bawww then going downstairs to talk to Garrus and Wrex AND NOT SEEING ASHLEY THERE made me want to cry.
/CURLS UP IN A CORNER BAWLING ABOUT VIRMIRE
this reminds me of the time i was cooing over the orge in jade empire >_>
In other news, I went to Fry's today.
I had a total geekgasm looking at a motherboard with a AMD Phenom II quadcore on it. By geekgasm, I mean geekgasm.
It was...strange. T_T
Also, I was amused, because I saw this little girl being dragged in there by her dad and little brother. I laughed because she so totally didn't want to be there, and I could tell. I think it was because I was like "Oh man, if I were her, I would've been skipping into the store."
Also. I discovered Cory Doctorow. He makes my inner geek happy. (I only read the first 50 pages of Overclocked while I was at Borders though. D: I plan on holding a crapload of Doctorow at the library to read over the summer.)
