Convolutions of an Evil Mind
It's a conspiracy, I tell you!
Well, my writing time has been nonexistent for the last week and I anticipate that things will not get any better for a good month or more. Why? Because spring is apparently the "Season 'o the RPGs", at least for 2006. For months and months, there's nothing I find interesting and then BOOM! three eagerly awaited RPGs are scheduled for release in the space of less than a month!

(1) Shadow Hearts III: From the New World
(2) Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
and last, but certainly not least
(3) Kingdom Hearts II

Oh, and did I mention that it's the end of the quarter at work, with all its attendant nervewracking, impossible deadlines? :P

At the moment, I'm playing Shadow Hearts: From the New World. While people have complained that the latest Shadow Hearts game is not as good as Shadow Hearts: Covenant (the second game in the Shadow Hearts series), especially in regard to plot, I've found the game rather entertaining. All the Shadow Hearts games are an absolutely cracked sense of humor and the third one is no exception. I mean, what other RPG series gives you characters like a narissistic vampire pro-wrestler, a guitar-wielding Desperado clone, a giant cat who's a master of Drunken Fist kungfu, an absolutely bonkers hero-wannabe who's a master of South American ninja arts (WTF!?), and so on? ::mad snigger:: Actually.... ::nervously peek around:: I found certain aspects of the game SO interesting that it spawned a fairly sizable plot bunny involving post-game Johnny, Lady, and Killer. Hopefully jotting down notes and scene snippets will suffice to keep that plot bunny placated. My main goal here is to finish my 2nd playthru of the game before March 28.

Why, you may ask? Because on March 28, Kingdom Hearts II comes out! ::trumpet fanfare::

And let's not forget Oblivion, hmm? The joy of playing RPGs on PCs is that they're so easily cheatable. No messing around with pesky cheat devices or cryptic codes. Just open up the handy-dandy command console and tweak things to your heart's content -- I'll take 'god mode', thank you.

So for the next month (at least!), I'm going to be horribly sleep-derived, both my back and butt are going to ache like hell, and my wrists are going to hate me. So call me a gaming masochist. ^_-

Current Mood: ditzy ditzy
Current Music: Sabbath -Demon Banquet- (Shadow Hearts: FtNW ost)

4 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

XD One in the same...

I haven't really looked into the other two games, but KH2 is deffinately on my "to get" list. Sora and Riku.... XD They just won't stop sending me inapporpriate mental imagery. And when I saw all of those previews on the Japanese site(AC Cloud and the return of Sephy), I was like... O_O *Fangirl SqueeTwirlFaint*

I once recorded how long I could go at an RPG. ^^ FFVII Holds the record at 3 days, 2 hours and 17 minutes before I passed out from fatigue. Of course, I had bathroom breaks, and I ate while I played, but that doesn't really count, right...? <.<

Meh, anyway... Gaming masochist... ^.~v Be it, girl!

You already have Shadow Hearts 3 out there??? DAMN, i think we have about another YEAR to go! And also we have to wait 'til the end of MAY for KH2. Meaning hours of avoiding several websites to ignore spoilers. As if there aren't enough around already ...

....wow, your earlier release dates are the death of me. I think we get Silent Hill games before you guys but ... *simmers more at the thought of Shadow Hearts/Kingdom Hearts*

... enjoy them. If you don't I will deem you forever ungrateful!

Hi! I'm a fan of your fiction "Black Feathers"! :) Last year I asked if you would put up a new chapter of it cause you mentioned it in one of your lj posts (you said that MAS-Zine deadline was coming near and you had to hurry)
but I believe you never answered me. So a new year a new try!^.^V I looked on the site but the last update on it was from 2003. So I wanted to ask if you are still planning on continuing it.

a fan of your creative work :)
