That Nyrate-y thing

So it’s my favorite month of the year already

Obviously that means I should draw something Halloween related, but I have no idea what to draw…

the-supernatural-zelda-force:

I love Ghirahim. I really do. I mean….

how can you not?

LOOK AT HIS DANCE!!!

LOOK AT THAT TONGUE!!! (he’s awesome enough to freak link out)

He’s a freaking SWORD!!! (It’s soul eater come to life)

He’s so freaking flamboyant-its beautiful. Look how happy he is at world domination and the end of the world!!!!!!

He is the most dramatic character I have ever seen (he’s such a fucking drama queen and its so awesome!!!)
and for all you freaking haters, Ghirahim has something to say to you:

random note of the night

Ghirahim is still an amazing character and I still plan on cosplaying him once I get in shape (somehow I lost ten pounds in the past six weeks by doing absolutely nothing different, compared to losing nothing but some bodyfat after six weeks of intense exercise, if that means anything). Will probably take a few years but hey if I ever go to MAGFest it’ll be him or Kuja I dress as.

I’ve been playing as him a lot in Hyrule Warriors (he’s level 60 at the moment), been trying to get his badges/equipment but man is it hard. I can’t think of a single good mission to farm Fi stuff (at least I ASSUME it’s Fi stuff since it’d make the most sense and I have drops from just about every other enemy).

still need to mess with Zelda and the other Adventure Mode characters though, barely played as them yet. Also Gauntlet Link and the other hidden weapons I need to unlock.

"New Nintendo 3DS" CM featuring Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
New song - “KISEKAE”

Nintendo has gone full Kyary and I kinda like it

Nintendo has gone full Kyary and I kinda like it

I dunno I feel kind of self indulgent or something when I talk about how much I’ve worked on You May without having anything to show for it

but as you can see I have a serious problem here

a real serious problem

pinkuboa:

Theory: RPG Maker Dev Blogs don’t reveal much of the plot because they haven’t come up with the whole plot yet

I’d believe it

but then there are those people who have in their minds that they want to do what Yume Nikki did and leave it up to interpretation. Then again, said people could just be using ‘interpretation’ as an excuse to put random things together without having to write a plot, which leads back to the first point sooo yeah.

or you could be like me and have this

and wanting to be more of a show-don’t-tell person which doesn’t really work at all when you don’t have a lot to show for it

Welp, now the majority of my week shall be filled with Hyrule Warriors. Obviously playing on Hard mode despite never playing a Dynasty game, just beat the Goron level with Impa, and boooyy that was a level. She was level nine-ten going into it, she left level 18. Those bombchus, man. I dunno, I probably played it wrong, but having to do that part over and over because boulders mixed in with bombchus even though I tried to take over as many as I could, with the checkpoint always having the home base at half health…

so yeah fun stuffs. Then next week will be Smash, then the week after that will be more Smash (and birthday), and then the week after that would be free (more Smash let’s be honest), and then the week after THAT would’ve been Fantasy Life… if I could afford it, so probably more Smash instead (luckily I could afford Hyrule Warriors via babysitting money and Smash will be a birthday gift but then it’s back to broke again).

I’ll put it this way, that planned October You May release date is not looking good at all. I’ll try for New Years instead.

Dead Dead Demon’s DedededeDestruction’s official PV

on one hand I have not worked on You May all week this week

on the other hand Nifflas has been very inspirational and a fun experience with the three games I’ve played (Within a Deep Forest, Knytt, and Knytt Stories. In Stories I’ve played The Machine, A Strange Dream, An Underwater Adventure, Sky Flower, This Level is Unfinished, and Gustav’s Daughter).

as in I finally figured out how I can theoretically make a form of 2D platforming work in RPG Maker

I dunno I feel like venting even more about FFXV but yeah like

so much negativity around it now.

Tumblr up in arms about the starting cast being an all male brotherhood because equality means everything must be 50/50 even though FF has an okay record in treating women (heck, the main protagonist for the past decade has been a female). Even though that’s only the starting party, with confirmation that there’ll be more characters to choose from. And even though this is the first FF game to feature an all male team so far, with the explanation being how they’re a group of childhood friends being bros and travelling the countryside. Complaints about “lack of diversity” is all you see when you go into the tag, and a certain blog I follow is convinced the game sucks because there’s no playable female characters. I dunno, it just doesn’t seem like that should be the deal breaker of all things.

And then there’s the whole slew of information coming around now that just makes me irked. The fact that Nomura’s no longer directing (according to a Tweet I saw, it was the company’s decision, not his) his pet project he’s been wanting to work on for eight years. The fact that his replacement has supposedly said that the combat will be “hold down a button and everything happens automatically for you”, because he’s getting too old and dislikes having to button mash.

"Another example is in the combat," explains Tabata. "With the hardware specifications of the newer consoles, it’s possible to set it up so you have different enemies and different choices of attacks you can enter in, but I want to simplify that. It’ll basically be a one-button action, and the AI intuitively outputs an action that kind of satisfies, gives you that instant gratification, and it connects with the simple touch of a button. I myself am not getting any younger. I don’t want to be frantically pushing buttons. I also want to utilise the intelligence of the hardware spec, and not have to go through too much hassle or trouble in order to execute moves."

It’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s false information lately, but a lot of the things I hear repeated around aren’t sounding good. Especially after that 2011 interview that had a bunch of things that sounded awesome…

compare that to this

Now, supposedly you can only control Noctis (whether just in the demo or full game, it’s hard to tell, but if it’s the latter then that’s proof they’re going back on what they said in 2011. Hoping it’s the former). The gameplay in the latest trailer looks to me less like Kingdom Hearts and more like Crisis Core (which was such a dull game to me in comparison), supposedly. Tabata says he wants to make it more casual and easy, and wants to focus on realism, stating

"I felt that I wanted to shift it more to be more realistic. For example, when you’re battling a really strong boss like a behemoth, if you go at it from just the front you’re going to get hit with his counter-attacks. You have to think about baiting it to attack forward, but then break its stance and attack it from the side. I wanted to make it so you’re fighting a real animal, but with easy-to-manipulate controls as well as dramatic effects. My basis was to keep it grounded in reality."

it really just sounds dull to me. What’s wrong with the KH-esque gravity-defying action of punching Godzilla in the face?

Who can tell, once the playable demo comes out in March, we can at least hear other people’s reactions. Plus, it still has beautiful visuals and Yoko Shimomura, so who knows, maybe that mixed in with a surprisingly good story might make up for it a little bit.
