I'm bad at keeping up with things. I don't remember how long ago I last updated this, and I don't remember what I wrote about either. I ended up having to reactivate my emails for the billionth time. Tried to draw something for the first time in months and months (picture sucked as always, didn't bother to finish it). Thought about oil painting again and remembered that not only do I suck at that too, but my turpentine got thrown out.

Had been playing World of Warcraft (thanks to a friend of mine who bought me the game) for about a month until the free time ran out. Thought about seeing whats going on with Guild Wars, since I left without saying anything to the people in the guild I was in, but... I pretty much did everything I could do by myself + henchmen and I don't work well with other players. Yet I still keep playing these apparently social games.

Maybe I will check up on GW after all.

I'm not sure if this will even update, as our internet connection has been absolute shit lately. The internet connection cuts out or the modem un-synchs very frequently. One can also hear the modem through the phone, despite having a filter on it, and we even tried changing the filter. I suspect picking up the phone is one of the main things that makes the modem un-synch. Even with the squealing modem unplugged, the phone itself crackles annoyingly, making conversation difficult and obnoxious. This really sucks.

Haven't updated in a while, which isn't unusual for me. Nothing much to say either, unless one cares about video games.

Metal Gear Solid is a surprisingly interesting series of games. I assumed they'd be pointless shooters, but the storyline is actually interesting and the game itself is rather more fun to play than regular shooter games.

I'd been playing Guild Wars again, and actually joined a guild at last. Though I still hate the inevitable 'r u boy or grl we must knowwwwww' questions that I can't really answer well enough to be comprehended by dumb american teens. Most of the people in the guild don't seem to be logging in much anymore, and I'm already getting tired of the game again.

So I started trying to play Ragnarok Online again. It still sucks, and still involves far too much time walking around trying to find where is a good place to hunt, then dying and having to walk it again. People still kill-steal everywhere. Though one person actually gave me a useful hat for no reason. Other than that, everyone else I met was either an unavoidable jerk, or an ignorable jerk.

I've been reading a lot of science fiction. I still haven't been drawing.

I've been playing a lot of Final Fantasy lately. 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 (as '3' for the super nintendo), 10, 10-2, and Tactics Advance. So much leveling. Hate mini-games so very much.

So of course I had a look at the information for the upcoming (eventually) FF12. From the screenshots I thought it looked like a combination of Tactics/Tactics Advance and FF Online, with some visual elements from Vagrant Story. It turns out that it is in fact set in the same world as the Tactics series, combining the countries and designs of Tactics with the races and clan factions of Tactics Advance (Hume, Moogle, Viera and Baanga, though the fluffy white magic-using hippo-looking creatures have been replaced with round reptilian/orc-looking things).

The trailers looked very flashy and interesting, the actual in-game scenes (of which there was very little in the trailers) reminded me almost of the online game for some reason, though I couldn't say why. It looks like it will have the battle system of the regular FF games (monsters on one side, party on the other, hit until dead) rather than the Tactics move-around-the-board system. At least, I didn't see any scenes of fancy rendered characters surrounding a monster, punching it and throwing potions at it for 5 hours to build up job points.

In what seems to be Final Fantasy tradition, the main character looks young, blonde and annoying. But I played both 10 and 10-2 the whole way through without throwing things at the screen, so I imagine I won't mind this one.

Changed my icon even though it now doesn't match my lameass username. Changed the colours to match it though. I should put the full picture it comes from here, but... I'd likely have to edit things or something. I think the face is the best part of it anyway.
