qwop, the greatest game ever played  
It's 11:25 PM and I'm about to go to bed, so there's no time to type out a real journal entry! Instead, have QWOP!

Yosh, QWOP! Basically, QWOP is a hilarious as hell flash game that everyone's been playing lately. The game goes like this: you're an Olympic runner, and all you have to do is run 100 meters, from start to finish. Easy, right? Wrong! You can only control the runner's thighs and calves, on both of his legs. The Q and W keys move his thighs, and O and P moves his legs. Thus, QWOP. The game is ridiculously impossible, but addicting and hilarious as all hell. You'll fall on your face and die so many times, your runner's legs will twist and bend in impossible angles... and every time I died, I laughed my ass off. You can play QWOP over here, but you've gotta watch this vid before you do, seriously...
In which Kiri lawls out loud to this guy's QWOP commentary, and promises you will too... )

fuck you guard armor, you ruined my childhood  
Alright! So I know for sure that I'm definitely getting Final Fantasy XIII and Fable III for Christmas! In fact, I know for a fact that Dad snagged it yesterday - mainly because I begged and pleaded for him to, haha. There was a sale at Gamestop yesterday (it was Black Friday and all, of course) where Final Fantasy XIII was 50% off (making it $20 instead of the usual $40) and Fable III was $20 dollars off (making it $40 instead of $60!). So yeah, it was a steal of a deal! Hah! Now I just hope that I'll get Birth by Sleep and Days - then Christmas will be amazing!

(Kiri, you're so cold-hearted, there's more to Christmas besides presents!)
I know, I know, but I'm a broke gamer, don't judge me!
This is the only time besides my birthday where I get to have new video games!

Speaking of Kingdom Hearts, I wonder if I'm alone in this, but... whenever I hear the trademark Song 'ping' at the end of all their commercials now, I immediately think of Kingdom Hearts. It's because, in the commercials for the second game, they used that same sound at the beginning of the commercial - I believe it was the original sound for Square Enix... or something. It's probably just me, but that's something that's been bugging me a lot lately! Just to check if it was true, I went and rewatched the KH II commercial on YouTube, and yeah, it's the same sound! But damn, watching that commercial brings back fond memories... I remember all the KH II news was talked about all over Disney Channel (pre-Hannah Montana, when it was actually good?) and I squealed like a pathetic fangirl when I heard Jesse McCartney was going to be Roxas's voice, because I was such a big fan of him when I was younger! Ah, how old was I? I wish I knew! Maybe fourteen or so? Not sure. Ah, the memories...

In which Kiri talks way too much about her KH memories... )

But I'm excited to finally get my hands on Birth by Sleep and Days! I want to know what Xion's deal is - who the hell is she, why does she get to number XIV, and what happens to her, anyway? I want to know the backstory behind Ven and Aqua and Terra - why does Ven look so much like Roxas, what does "Birth by Sleep" mean anyway, and why does Vanitas look like... (Fuck, I thought I forgot about that spoiler! Get out of head, get out of my head right now!)

Seriously though, I can't wait! In the meantime, have some nostalgia...

more video games and less fruit cups please  
Somehow, Dad got me to eat a fruit cup today. It was this cute little cup of fruits with pineapples, cherries and other assorted fruits that I can't even name inside - he randomly said it was really good so I should try it, so I did. God, fruits in fruit cups are slimy! It felt totally gross, just squirming down my throat, and the fruit juice was so sweet... That stuff is supposed to be good for you, but I guess I'm just not used to foods that don't have anything artificial or preservatives! Do fruit cups have preservatives? I don't know, but it made me feel like I just sucked a snail out of it's shell. My dad sort of grinned and was like, "It tastes good, right?" Haha, of course, totally yummy...

Okay, so I've finally come up with my finalized Christmas List! For someone who only gets games at Christmas, this is a very important occasion for me. Sadly, I don't think I'm going to get everything on this list, but that's cool; I'll still end up totally stoked either way.

In which Kiri lists all the games she wants for x-mas... )

Okay so I'm also planning to replay a lot of games too, and actually beat some games that I have lying around that I've kind of just abandoned... I'm tired of being a gamer who starts a lot of games but rarely ever finishes any!  And I've never really replayed any game, except for Dragon Age but that's 'cause I wanted to see the different endings... So yeah, list time again!

In which Kiri talks about games she wants to replay or finish... )

I also want to rewatch Advent Children, and watch Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. I actually own a copy of both, 'cause I'm a frickin' lamer. I wish I owned Advent Children: Complete though. I mean, that's what you get for actually buying shit. All they'll do is just come out with a better and more advanced version that the shit that you bough. Lame. And I've never watched The Spirits Within - my uncle lent it to me a while ago and I never got around to watching it... No idea what it's about, too lazy the read the back. (Yesss, I'm a lazy ass, I know.)

Speaking of Final Fantasy, [community profile] areyougame has posted up it's December prompts, and I'm tempted to take the Crisis Core/Advent Children crossover prompt that's due for Dec. 10th:

Crossover: Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core/Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children: Timewarp AU/Crisis Core has a case of SHM - ”Sephiroth, you have to do something about them.” “Why should I?” “Because, apparently, they’re yours.”

Imagine the possibilities! Ugh, but I swore off fanfiction, but hell, what's wrong with fanfiction? It's just for fun, right? Right? Ugh. I don't know. I shouldn't even be worrying about that. My Pridea piece for the art trade between me and [personal profile] razzberree isn't even done yet - it's getting there, but it's not done. Get back to writing, Kiri! Stop goofing off!

Watching this video kind of inspired me to start playing more Final Fantasy games... Cheesy, I know, leave me alone!

dazzling the stage! galactic pretty boy!  
I've been watching my fair share of anime this season, but one of my absolute favorites has to be STAR DRIVER. Take a mecha anime, mix it together with a fabulously hilarious and heroic lead, stir in tons of mystery, drama, and badass music, and you'll get STAR DRIVER: Takuto of the Radiance, a mecha/high school anime that... really, how to explain this?

It starts out with our hero, Takuto, laying half dead on a beach after swimming all the way from the main land to an island where he'll be attending school. Yes, you heard me right, he SWIMS. Apparently, he missed the boat and decided to do what every logical person would do... swim there! He's found by two passerby, Wako and Sugata, who save his crazy arse and take him back to their house so he can recover.

Later, we learn that this island is protected by a variety of Shrine Maidens, who are being captured one by one by a group called Glittering Crux (or Glittering Star... it's never really made clear) who all pilot mechas and are trying to "break" all of the Shrine Maiden's "seals" so that their mechas ("Cybodies") can all advance to the next level. We find that Takuto can also pilot a Cybody, one of the biggest, baddest cybodies around, Tauburn. When Takuto summons his Cybody he transforms into... Well, see for yourself!

I wonder if I should do posts like this more often? It's rare when anime gets me this excited, but when it does, I can't help myself!
