Skyrim, why you no leave me alone?!Just when I think I'm free from the hypnotic song of Skyrim's vast landscape, colourful people and epic stories it goes and pulls me back in! This time as an unarmed Warrior Khajiit named "Prymm". And already I am having WAY too much fun. XD
Problem is, I set out to make an "evil" character so I could fill in all the quests I never finished in my first run-through because of moral reasons. But that ... never happened. I am SUCH a soft touch! I can't be meant to those digital people! It's so hard! Especially after I get talking to them. D:
Is that very strange? Feeling guilty for stealing from a FAKE storekeeper? Being unable to assassinate a string of data? I can't even stand to let 'my' horse get hurt; I think I spend more time making sure he's safe than I do actually fighting anything! Lol!! It's no wonder I never get anything done! XD
Am I alone in this weird pathetic-ness? Am I doomed to play the same story line over and over until I finally get tired of the game altogether? Yikes!
Double Dragon Neon! (and apologies) Yikes. Frightening to believe my last journal entry was 8 months ago. *wince* It's been so long I'm afraid you guys have all most likely forgotten about li'l Tsuno by now! *wibbles*
I want to get back to being involved with this community, I really, really do (especially since I have nothing but time these days!)! But I no longer have ANY of my digital art equipment/supplies; just a crumby laptop some pencils and paper. Not even a mouse! So I'm afraid I don't have anything entertaining to offer. Which makes me feel sad and rather useless to this site and my friends as a whole. Sorry ladies and gents. T_T
All I can offer today is a mini-review of a rather awesome game D and I recently finished on Xbox: "Double Dragon Neon"! (bear with me, I'll try not to get too wordy!)
As an avid arcade-aholic when he was younger D was super excited to see this latest reboot of one of his favorites; 1987's "Double Dragon". When I say 'super excited' I mean SUPER excited! He bought it on the spot and insisted we play, so play we did.
I'm not a fan of arcade games myself; too boring and linear I've always thought. I've never been so happy to be wrong!
True, the gameplay itself is pretty standard (punch, kick, jump, grab, and a few combinations of these) but that actually becomes kind of addictive as you pile through waves of coiffed, spandex wearing enemies! The updated graphics are bright, exciting and colourful, and the animations are ridiculously fluid which makes it easy to navigate through the 'layers' of the landscape (no more getting stuck on invisible layer dividers!). Plus, there was an addition of optional "special moves" and stances which are unlocked as you find, if you can believe it, mix-tapes! How awesome is that? XD Even the music is deliciously 80's. All made for the game itself, the mix-tape songs still carry a distinct flavour of artists from the time (Rick Astley, Prince ect).
Bro-five! You don't play co-op, you play bro-op!
All the characters are cardboard and hardly fleshed out but you find you don't even care because that is obviously what the creators intended. Besides, you are too busy laughing at the corny 80's haircuts and dialogue (exclamations like "stab-ular" and "bro-dozer" fly like confetti) to be concerned with anything more than a stereotypical "save the damsel" plot. And the humour! Oh, the humour in this game is so tongue-in-cheek, cheesy and screwball that you can't help but love it! Especially if you don't mind a little (actually, A LOT of) good humoured fun being poked at the 80's. ^_~
Double Dragon Neon is a game that has no illusions about taking itself seriously. It costs 800 pts in the Xbox marketplace and both D and myself say it's more than worth it for the laughs and the replay value alone!
The hilarious song that plays karaoke style while the credits run doesn't hurt, either! :D
DO! WANT!After months of day-in day-out Skyrim my mind has totally turned into the delightfully squishy paste frequently associated with videogame overdose. It's a wonderful thing, but my hubby gently suggested (aka: hid the game!) that I take a break. Curse him and his loving concern for my well-being! *half-hearted fist shake*
So, of course, me being the sweet, gentle wife that I am I took his advice. That is to say, I've stopped playing Skyrim for now and moved back to Borderlands and L4D2 (Which we play together. He's such a hypocrite! <3<3<3<3<3)! These have to be my absolute favorite multiplayer games of all time! So much fun!! Just another reason to love D; he's the one who introduced them to me! \(^o^)/
But getting back into these games really reminds me how much I want want want a gold subscription so I can play online, 'cause I just really want to explore the other aspects of these awesome games! Stupid needing to shell out $$$ for the "priveledge" of getting vocally abused by 12 year olds and having my ass handed to me on a silver platter 'cause I'm just not that skilled! Lol! XD
Ah well, such is life. Part of what makes them my fav games is that D and I can play them together. Nothing says true love like blowing the heads off zombies or running giant spiderants over with a bright pink runner together. *awwwwww* kekekeke!
Also, OMG, Borderlands 2?! YES PLEASE!!! *dissolves into quivering blob on anticipation*
Caffeinated preview!!Sooooo, since I can't sleep tonight for some strange, unknown reason (the 3 cups of coffee right before bedtime, perhaps? kekekekeke *swirly eyes*) and I'm soooo impatient to prove I HAVE been working on the comic, I thought I would post a small, blurry, hard-to-see preview of the next Caffeinated installment! Weeeeeeeeeooooo!! *spins around*
Wow, I am soooooo creative when it comes to titles! XD
Okay, so am I the only one who - as a sneaky, "sniper" type character - finds the baddie dialogue just a teeny bit hilarious? Especially when your sneak is high enough that they can't find you, and then dismiss sneak-arrow attacks as "my mind is playing tricks on me"! I have taken out many a boss simply by hiding in the shadows and pelting them with arrows. LOL!!! Love it
Skyrim is eating my life!!Once again I seem to have become a ghost on this site. This time, tho, it has nothing to do with me being lazy 'cause, yanno, you can't be called lazy when you're running around saving the world and stuff right?!
Seriously, tho, is this game not, like, the BEST time-gobbler you're ever experianced?! OMG, I love it!
I always like to start my first run through as a Breton (they so TINY and CUTE! Eeee! ), relying heavily on sneak, archery, and heavy-duty healing spells. Stupidly, my Breton's name is "Prisoner" because I accidently skipped the naming process (I was just so impatient to get playing!)! I like to think that maybe she has amnesia and since the Imperials were all calling her "prisoner" she assumed that was her name. That makes sense, right? Right?! LOL, I know,how stupid can I get?! XD
Also Skyrim horses are AWESOME and so so sooooooo adorable! I call mine 'Charlie' and she can kick any dragon's ass! She also serves as the best distraction a little Breton could ask for. Nothing like having enemies focused on your horse and ignoring you while you pelt them in the back with arrows! Ke ke ke!
This game has given me so much inspiration for arts and comics, so hopefully I'll be posting something soon! In the meantime, what are all of you playing as? Any stories? From what I've heard, there are some pretty hilarious goings-on in Skyrim!
