It’s been a while since I wrote a post without any particular purpose. Since there’s a current lack of things to do at the moment, I decided “beh, why not?”
The drawing up there is something I did few days ago after honing up my photoshop skills. Lineart and coloring is all by me. I’m really damn proud of how this came out … it made me love Miu more than I already did. Miu is a character in Dark Crimson, by the way … but she has a minor cameo in Weiss. Click the image to enlarge it.
I mentionned in my last post that I finally got my hands on Crisis Core. I bought the game on Sunday actually and I’m currently in the chapter that started off with Zack at the beach. Right now I’m fighting against that damned scorpion (who has too much HP for his own good). I died once due to my carelessness so I’m winning this time no matter what (it’s a personal rule not to die against a boss more than once) …
Which brings me to talk about the two major flaws about Crisis Core -dies inside-
1: You can’t skip the scenes.
Yes they’re pretty … but they get annoying the second time around. I don’t mind it personally yet since I haven’t seen a scene more than twice but it reminds me of when in Kingdom Hearts I kept on dying against the chameleon boss in the Tarzan world. Hearing Tarzan go “ou ou ou ah ah ah” ten times suite is NOT fun.
(Yes I’m ashamed that I died ten times against that boss … my lvl wasn’t high enough)
2: You go back to the menu when you die.
I don’t get a to be continued!? It’d be a big no-no if I didn’t save at those save points and died … luckily I do save tho’ … but it’s hell of a annoying to be returned to the menu.
And 3! Well this isn’t a flaw … just more a personal complaint. I want my Suzu and Sakurai! If it weren’t for the fact that I can watch Crisis Core scenes at Crunchyroll … I’d be pissed. No one beats SuzuKen-Zack and Sakupyon-Cloud.
OH YEAH! One thing that freaked me out for a second was how Sephy doesn’t let out that whole “I am evil” vibe in C.C. Well, not yet at least (since I’m pretty sure I fight the guy somewhere later on). In that whole chapter where Zack was chasing after Hollander (the first time) … Sephy was just quiet, not evil or whatever. Honestly I found that totally cute.
((Dude. No one can voice Gackt er … Genesis better than … Gackt. Hell, Genesis was even made BASED OFF Gackt. What more can I say? Genesis’ english voice is ruin))
Yaoi/BL wise nothing new. Haven’t listened to a BLCD since Kotoba Nante Iranai (being preoccupied with C.C and all) … I plan on listening to “Darenimo Aisarenai” and “Double Call” soon so those reviews to come. I also listened to Spirits Tea … but I haven’t found the time to write its review yet.
But I’ll say this: HIRAKAWA DAISUKE IS WIN!
((Wow that was short. Guess its hard to rant when you’re not really pissed at anything. I’m kinda scaring myself with how happy I’ve been lately. Well, not happy per say … anyways … I haven’t been sulking or giving myself headaches with philosophical thoughts in a long while … which explains why I haven’t been writing DC is forever. Speaking of writing, my english teacher noticed my writing talents. OMG! 😄 We had to write a sort of prelude to “The Giver” and I prolly got the best one in the class. Nothing surprising considering that I’m attending a french school with over 95% of the population being primarily french-speaking -grumbles- Dude, I miss Montreal … I’m glad I’m going back next year))
