eternal_rena: (Kratos "What?!")
While playing Star Ocean Second Evolution...

*Currently at North City, getting a Psynard. Collects data, tries to input data, Psynard goes crazy and the party has to fight it.*

*Goes into battle*

Me: Watch it go down in 10 seconds

*Battle starts after some crap about the enemy is stronger being said*

Dias: Air Slash!

*Psynard is defeated*

Me: Um, make that 5 seconds ~__~

Seriously, I swear, Dias's Air Slash is way too effective against the Psynard and Dragon Tyrant =/ Not only that, with the Crimson Devil doubling his attack power and the Berserker Ring doubling it again, his Air Slash is already doing 9999 HP damage for the long range version of the skill. Chaos Sword is already doing more than 6500 HP damage per hit and I already have it used more than 120 times, which means Chaos Sword now hits twice since it's at skill final change version. And Dias is only Lv 51...

Though one thing I noticed when I was trying to get Noel's voice for his spells was that Dias's AI now uses Air Slash against flying enemies O_o The AI never did that in the original game. Of course, this is great news for me, since this means I no longer have to go through the pain of using Engetsuzan (Dunno SOSE's name yet, original SO2 was called Full Moon Slash) 100 times for skill final change version just to make it execute faster...

Also, having Ashton in your party makes it way too easy to get money. In just about 15 minutes, I already have over 27 million FOL. Haha. One of the things Ashton is useful for, though I don't really like to use him in battle so much, especially for Universe difficulty.

I also finally started Pokemon Heart Gold. I'm playing as the male character character though, since I don't like the female as much. Besides, my female character is already called Rena in Platinum... I don't really want another character called Rena. So I went with the male character and called him Kratos. Called the rival Dante XD

I've already reached Azalea Town and am currently in the Slowpoke well. Of course, this means that I've already defeated Falkner and gotten one badge... 7 more badges to go I guess. But seriously, I'm like having fun with it. The upgraded graphics, and being able to talk you your Pokemon in the lead and seeing their reactions at different places is quite interesting too XD And the PokeWalker is a nice addition to the game. I'm using it to randomly level Pokemon and open more routes, although leveling Pokemon this way can cause you to miss out on learning moves that you want and evolving your Pokemon so this is something one needs to watch out for, so you need to check whether they're going to learn a move that you want or if you want your Pokemon to evolve before putting them into the PokeWalker. Another thing one needs to look out for is that you can't gain EVs, since that can only be gotten through battling.

Current team:
- Totodile
- Pidgey
- Butterfree
- Mareep
- Geodude

Not the final team yet (yes, there are only 5 Pokemon in the team currently), I'm actually still deciding, but I'm going to try going for getting Dratini from the PokeWalker so I can start training it earlier rather than waiting to reach Blackthorn City and going to the Dragon's Den to get one. Another Pokemon that I'm looking at to make the final team is Mamoswine, but you can't catch Swinub until much later in the game, so that's going to take a while. I'm looking to replace Mareep with Pikachu/Raichu later when the PokeWalker Yellow Forest route is available for download via Nintendo WiFi from 1st April to 30th April. As for my fire type, unless there is some way I can get Houndour pre-elite four other than trading from my Platinum game, which means I need to breed and hatch an egg and stuff (and whether you can trade eggs or not pre-National Dex) which I really don't feel like doing, Arcanine will end up being my Fire Pokemon.

I can't believe I forgot to take the weapon that I need to make the Eternal Sphere/Aeterna for Claude! T__T Now he's without a good weapon and the Holy Sword Farewell/Demon Sword Levantine is quite a while aways. Stuck the Silvance on him with the Sword of Marvels as a backup since that sword has an attack element on it. Also, Dias, why can't you customize the Sword of Minos =/ You can equip the sword and yet you cannot make it...pfft

This is what I get for not playing the game for a long time and forgetting stuff here and there D: Thankfully Claude's not my main fighter. It's Dias who's my main fighter. I've already made the Crimson Diablos/Devil for him so time for him to tear the battlefield apart and rock house XD;

Haven't started Pokemon Heart Gold yet. Didn't feel like playing it yet cause I could only start it at night on weekdays and two of the Pokemon I want to catch are morning/day pokemon =/ Will start it on Sunday.

Also, stupid ISP. Why did you have to disable the old modem and enable the new one, forcing me to setup it up??? Now I'm having problems with my internet, and that installation had me needing to reboot my computer and the stupid computer refuses to let me skip the stupid disc check. I hate that stupid disc check cause it takes AGES to finish. A disc check taking more than 12 hours...WTF is up with that? =T The only reason that disc check even pops up is because of the stupid OS randomly corrupting my stuff on the C: drive. Hopefully after I get home from work tonight I can set the whole thing up without any problems so I can have internet on my computer again. pfft. Then I'll have to set up all my WiFi connection to that new wireless modem/router for my NDS Lite, PSP and Wii. Luckily that is easy to do...once I know how to set things up on the modem/router page.

Finally, happy birthday to [ profile] atelierjoh before I forget.

Haven't updated in a long time X_X I'll make this quick though...

Pokemon Heart Gold get! Now time for that game to eat my soul!

Also recently started playing Star Ocean Second Evolution. I really couldn't take it. I really had no motivation to finish Star Ocean First Departure. Not only the character choices per save file are more limited, the equipment sucks too. I still love SOSE to death BTW, though I find some of the name localization to be pretty stupid (not to mention WTF is with all that...American slang??? I think they're American slang...) when compared to the first localization which wasn't done by Square Enix (or Enix to be more exact)... Haven't finished the game yet though. Going through Rena's scenario first since that's the one I'm most familiar with. Playing it with the Japanese Guidebook which I got. Got to love Japanese Guidebooks. I have all the PAs that can be done and maps! Will probably bounce between playing Pokemon Heart Gold and Star Ocean Second Evolution.

I also recently fell in love with a Japanese show called Madan Senki Ryukendo. That show is awesome. It's way better than Power Rangers. In Power Rangers, I tend to only really pay attention to one or two characters, but for Ryukendo, I actually pay attention to all the Madan Warriors. Not only that, the show is funny in its own way at parts and the minor characters (the townspeople) sometimes gets the spot light too, though not often, but it's really different from Power Rangers. It's really awesome! And did I mention that there are no stupid giant robots/machines or the enemies growing bigger if they get defeated when normal human size? Sure, there are machines in the show, but they're JuuOh (Animal Kings), their Mecha Support Animals that help them and they are about the size of a normal human too. Although the last episode is leaving me a bit depressed. I'm going to re-watch it one more time, since I first watched the local dub that was airing on TV, then I started watching crappy YouTube quality videos that were uploaded, then I managed to locate the sub group that did it and someone directed me to all the episode downloads that were uploaded to MegaUpload (for once I'm actually glad that I'm a MegaUpload premium user), so I'm going to re-watch the whole thing again in the actual quality of the subbed version that was released.

Also finished World Destruction. The game wasn't too hard, in fact, it might be a little too easy... Not only that, I was too strong even without real leveling up and I defeated the final boss without she EVER taking a turn against me O_o Just so you know, the game is 10x100x better than the manga or anime. The characters that are represented in the anime/manga is NOTHING LIKE the game. In fact, their personalities are way off if I were to make a comment about it. Also, Crimson Sun Kyrie is awesome.

Just a short Fan Fiction status, I've finished writing Chapter 2 of my ToS fic and am currently working on Chapter 3, though I haven't proofread Chapter 2 yet. I'm debating on putting it up on first, but I really don't know... I have more motivation to write rather than code a website at this point... Still got Eternal's site to work on... So I may just put it up at first... Also planning on a couple of one-shots :3

That's it for now? And Happy Birthday to [ profile] silentdrifterz, coincidentally who's birthday falls on the same day as mine XD;

Okay...I've been dying to know the meaning of the lyrics to the opening songs for Star Ocean First Departure and Star Ocean Second Evolution. I've tried looking on the internet for a translation but to no...avail. Not even Anime Lyrics has them...

SOFD OP Heart -

Would someone be nice enough to translate them? Please? T__T

Or if you know where to find the translated version for them please link me?
eternal_rena: (Yuri "Oh?")
Okay...putting up LJ cuts since the post itself is pretty long just to save your friends page...

MegaUpload fail )

Tales of Symphonia Fan Fiction )

Gaming stuff )

List of stuff to do )

Oh, and Nagi ([ profile] chiyo_sama), the Shrimp Sushi plush you sent me, the smiling face on it...makes me want to smile too XD I see my package arrived safely too. Hope you like the stuff 8D

In unrelated news...Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver's release date in the US is one day before my birthday O_o It's going to be my birthday present for myself (getting Heart Gold) :X I just know the game is going to eat my soul and distract me from a lot of things DX

eternal_rena: (Kratos Mystic Arte - ToVS)
Stopped playing Tales of VS for a while and finally picked it up again. Finished Cless and Kratos, Lloyd and Colette scenarios in Hard mode. Still haven't unlocked Eugene...I don't particularly like to do Special Battles, but I will finish them...EVENTUALLY!!!

Cless and Kratos scenario still remains my favourite, and after playing through Lloyd and Colette scenario a second time, I somehow managed to understand more of it compared to the first playthrough. Also got 100% in the Event Library for their scenario.

Also started playing Star Ocean: First Departure. I got the game like AGES ago (which is when I bought my PSP and I also bought Star Ocean: Second Evolution at the same time) but wasn't quite in the play it. And considering when I bought my PSP, the release date for Pokemon Platinum was pretty close so I ended up not playing much on the my PSP. I went through the game and looked at the guidebook, I was going "WTF!?" The character recruitment was pretty confusing and was making my head hurt somehow, deciding who to go with for my first playthrough... I went "WTF!?" more when I discovered that I'm lacking a healer for a good portion of the game, after entering the Time Gate, and the first healer I'm going to come across is...Ioshua... ~__~ Looks like I'll need to remember to stock on Blueberries and give the Herbology skill a little boost...

Star Ocean 2 character recruitment is so much less confusing...mind you, I've played the original Star Ocean 2 game that was localised in the US on the Playstation to death, and I know the game like the back of my hand, which characters I like to use and whatnot, so I won't have problems playing Star Ocean: Second Evolution, even with the minor changes to the battle system. Plus you don't get separated from the game's main healer for such a long time (in fact you're always with a healer if you play Rena's scenario, and for Claude's scenario, Rena joins permanently pretty early and Claude is easy to level up when he still has the Phase Gun) :/

Well, I'll survive, I guess...
