Dear sentienttoaster,

You have received a LiveJournal virtual gift from an anonymous sender

The note attached to your gift reads: "I like otters! They're comfy and easy to wear! ...wait."


OKAY, WHOEVER THIS ANON IS, I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW I LOVE YOU.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH OTTER ANON I WANT TO GET TO RANK 10 WITH YOU.

Has anyone else gotten any anonymous otters? I know some other people got them and my sister got one that comment was written in the style of the Old Spice Guy commercial.

I'MMA LET YOU FINISH BUT

What's the best new game of 2010?


WELL I AM COMPLETELY SNOWED IN AND THEREFORE HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO BUT IGNORE DIGGING MY MOM'S CAR OUT OF THE SNOW. FUCK YOU SNOWPOCALYPSE.

I don't even know, this year was kind of... dry in terms of gaming for me. I mostly just played the more recent Persona games, Soul Silver, and Birth by Sleep. I think Birth by Sleep was the only one that was released in America and Japan in 2010 so I'm going to say Birth by Sleep is the best game-- especially Terra's mode with all his wacky idiotic hijinks. Soul Silver was pretty good too but I'm going to be perfectly honest and admit that I'm not as fond of Johto as everyone and their mother is. I know that is a cardinal sin in Pokemon fandom but I just liked Hoenn more.

OH SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI, YOU'RE COMPLETELY INSANE BOTH PLOT WISE AND IN DIFFICULTY. AND THAT'S WHY I LOVE YOU. If Persona 4 came out this year I would have called it the best game of 2010 but it's still one of the best games I've played in awhile, Persona 3 FES was good too but it was also soul crushing. I guess I could have played P3P since I ended up buying a PSP this year anyway but I was really content with the ending of the Answer, you know? Everything is fine in the end and there was pretty music and girl on robot girl hand-holding -- THEREFORE I AM CONTENT AND CAN MOVE ON TO PLAY OTHER RIDICULOUS GAMES.

And that's about it, it was... an especially boring year for me altogether. But 2011 is actually looking pretty damn awesome with Black & White and a whole lot of games that I can roll around in all year long, which is good because next year is probably going to be hell for me because I'm at that age where I need to start being a mature responsible adult and plan for college. On the other hand, if Nintendo brings over the new Fire Emblem game that still takes priority over everything else.


...

Well fuck this was nerdy, should I talk about comic books while I'm babbling? I think Virgil is still powerless, M'gann is in a coma, and horrible things are going to happen to Jaime. The solution is clearly DC needs to have the three of them go on a roadtrip in 2011.

Otakon Post Part 2: YOU SAYING I LIKE DUDES?

'Sup dudes, welcome to part two of the (very late) Otakon posts. This one details the events of the midnight SMT/Persona photoshoot by the fountains. Shin Megami Tensei, as some of you might already know, is a series where the apocalypse happens on a weekly basis and you can become bros with quite a few demons and deities. In Persona you luckily don't have to fight off a bunch of demons and it's not the apocalypse 24/7, you just have to fight Jungian horrors and the occasional Lovecratian god.

...

OR YOU COULD JUST PLAY POKEMON. It's probably safer and will end up being funner in the long run to just play Pokemon. Anyways, so here are the photos and the wacky hijinks that occurred. Enjoy!

SO THAT'S OTAKON 2010. IT WAS ALRIGHT.

It's occasionally nice to see so many nerds and know that you're not alone and that all those people on the internet aren't just the same person playing a mind game on you, on the other hand... I can never look at pillow cases the same way. I still want to know why I can't get a pillow with Kamina on it.

Well, seeing as how I've posted more this month than I ever thought I would I'm going to hibernate now and start storing food for Nanowrimo, being a creeper about Birth by Sleep, and flailing about stuff nobody else cares about.

PEACE OUT MY FRIENDS!

Otakon Post Part 1: SPARE HIS LIFE FROM THIS MONSTROSITY

'Sup dudes, this is part one of a two part post about Otakon. It does contain photos from the first day of Otakon but not of the SMT/Persona photoshoot, that's coming later or whenever traincat uploads those photos.

Let me start off by saying one thing that has been bothered me all throughout my Otakon experience this year -- what is with all the half naked anime ladies on pillow cases? This bothers me for so many reasons. I think my first reason is that it's kind of skeevy, my second reason is that I did not see one hunkly anime man on a pillow case. Now I don't necessarily want anyone on a pillow that I rest my head on or hug when I'm having that dream again where Justin Bieber turns out to be my father but I would like some equality when it comes to having pretty people on pillow cases. YEAH, I JUST RANTED ABOUT THE WHOLE "PILLOW BRIDE" PHENOMENON, IT'S GOING TO BE THAT KIND OF POST.

In non-Otakon news, welcome this_is_ark, connie_connike, ink_kee, kouriko, and talli_ho to this cosmic horror of a journal. I don't update incredibly often and can go a long time without commenting on your entries but I don't bite and I'm pretty understanding even if I don't always show it. I do flail around a lot too, so watch out for that.

I'm going to start throwing ideas in a hat for Nanowrimo this year, last year was fun but my novel sucked and I will not let that happen again. BECAUSE THIS YEAR, I'M MORE CRAZY, AND CRAZY PEOPLE WRITE WELL. Or I could just plan ahead, but I should probably do both.

The Giant Persona Fanart Post

» This post is filled with Persona fanart I've gathered from Pixiv (With a few exceptions) and is mostly P3 and P4 fanart. For those of you who do not know the Persona games, it's pretty much a series where mythology rich plots meet Jungian psychology and freaky shit happens and a bunch of teenagers fight Shadows with their Personas. This series is very...special.
I don't know what drugs Atlus takes to make these games but I don't want them to stop.

» To summarize P3 and P4: Persona 3 is the game where you shoot yourself in the head and magical stuff happens (I'm serious, this is how they summon their Personas. It makes sense in an odd way.) and had a Greek mythology theme and is therefore seriously depressing at times.

Persona 4 is the game where you move to the country and then fall into the TV, also there is a murder case and you eat strange stuff from the back of your fridge to gain courage; less depressing than P3 but it has more freaky bosses and it is basically like if Twin Peaks made love to Hot Fuzz and their baby was a JRPG.
I DON'T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE OTHER GAMES BESIDES THE FACT THAT NYARLATHOTEP IS A HUGE MEANIE.

» I do not take credit for any of this wonderful fanart, all credit belongs to the original artists. The only thing I can take credit for is searching endlessly, like a mindless zombie, on Pixiv...and I'm 100% sure I've seen other people seek out fanart better. If you are the artist and find this post and want me to take your art down, just ask.

» This whole post is safe for work, and is kept relatively spoiler free. However, it is pretty image heavy. I might make another post like this for Fire Emblem or Durarara!! fanart at some point.

» And now, with that being said.....

This weekend I start searching for more Fire Emblem, Durarara!!, and Pokemon fanart BECAUSE I HAVE NO LIFE ): on Pixiv. I- I just need some time to recuperate from this post. My eyes hurt :|
