This entry is basically a collection of random thoughts that I've had over the past few days, while sitting at the computer, and remembered to type into this LJ client. There's absolutely no connection between most, if not all, of these subjects. You have been warned. ^_^

My new roommate is bringing her Playstation to school with her. Keeping in mind my LoZ obsession, what games do you think I should look into purchasing for it? I'm fairly happy about that ... though I love Nintendo to death, I sometimes think I'm missing out on other good things. ^^;

I was checking over .:!Brainfuzz!:. today to make sure everything was functioning normally (why I do this, I do not know, as things have never gone wrong, excepting when Geocities used to shut it down rather frequently), and I saw that someone new had signed the Guestbook. Following links through, I found that starlight200 uses one of our icons, and she even linked .:!Brainfuzz!:. from her page, http://www.geocities.com/land_weird/ (which I thus link here). It made me feel a lot better to know that people like .:!Brainfuzz!:., and that it's useful. Someday, I hope that .:!Brainfuzz!:. will be a place where anyone can go and find something they can use.

I am going to memorize these lj codes someday.

I decided to decorate my assignment notebook in the hopes that I would use it more regularly this year, and so I wound up making a bunch of "collages" for it. I uploaded them here: http://faineant.silver-mask.net/collages/

Some of them suck, some of them are okay. Rurouni Kenshin and Inu-Yasha are the dominant selections this year, it seems, but that's most likely because they've been my focus recently. ::squeals with fangirlish glee as she looks at the Kenshin collages:: God, I love Watsuki's style. It's so clean, so elegant. It prints out damn well too. o.o

Luckily, a couple of the "collages" are icon-size, so I can upload 'em to .:!Brainfuzz!:. XD

::laughs:: I wrote this from 12/21/2001, before I finally got into the habit of entering things into LJ: "::sigh:: This is boring. I hate writing about these sorts of trivial things. >.>;;"

Sorry for the double post. x_x; ::deletes the other::
! ::jots down the Parn complex next to one of her other random complexes:: XD hee!

ROFL! thanks!! and I DO agree on some points, others well, that's probably because I've seen CoTHK, so my judgement is influenced. Ashram does rock, but I still wuv Parn loads more XD ::Deedlit's fangirl-esque over parn squeal comboed with skiping off to build a mini shrine, or something..or not:: I seem to have a linking for sucky characters like Shinji! MWAHA! Ph33r m3. XD Er I mean. ^_^;

ASHRAM SUCKS XD j/k! j/k!! ::ducks awaiting to be pelted, tared, and feathered by a mob of Ashram fans::

o_O I don't like Wagnard. XP Wagnard can go blow himself up with Kardis for all I care =D

However, I do happen to have some SD Lodoss Island ( the Manga version )Ashram icons in the making. XD I'll post up the link and you can go get them since I know you love Ashram ( probably not as much as link though, ne? )^_^ and I think for the hell of it I'll put up the one where Parn cross dresses XD in order to calm Orson's gone on berserker mode for you to laugh at >D

BTW, as for games PS2 wise, I'd say check out Final Fantasy Xdefinately. Grandia II has an absolutely lovely sardonic hero. I love his sarcasm throughout the game. The Story itself is pretty good as well as the game play XD Zone of Enders is a wee bit of a mix of action/RPG, but it's still fun none the less, and takes only 2-3 hours to beat the entire game, no seriously! If your in a bad mood and just want to ass kick something try The Bouncer, Devil May Cry,or Guilty Gear (more of a fighting game then the other two). You've probably played these but I'll list them anyway. ^_^; Suikoden II, the god of all RPGS XD ( Okay so I'm exagerrating. and yes I know it's not on PS2 ) Unfortunately a lot of the games that I'm anticipating aren't comming out til around November.. It would be really nice if they also had a few games of LoZ out on the PS2. I miss playing it -_-; LOL yes, old school Zelda! XD I'm too broke/cheap to get a console that has it -_-; Maybe I should try the gameboy one.. I wonder if that is any good?

Depends on which Gameboy LoZ game you refer to. Link's Awakening is great, but the Oracle series bored the shiznit out of me. ^_^; I still haven't beaten them (despite having owned them for some time) because I've forgotten where I was supposed to go next, and I don't really care enough to go find out. o_o

I love Shinji too, he's my favorite NGE character, and I identify with him a lot. ^^; He's not sucky! I haven't seen all of NGE yet, but he always winds up saving everybody's tush. o_O; Without Shinji, they'd all be dead several times over!

I don't like Wagnard either, and I dislike that {SPOILER} he hurts Ashram so much. T_T I'm glad Ashram kills him. ^^; {/SPOILER}

Re: Sorry for the double post. x_x; ::deletes the other::
yeah I was actually thinking of the Oracle series LOL! and thank you! I think I'll check Link's Awakening out, I wasn't sure if it just about the same as LoZ:3 A link to the past, so I didn't think much of getting it. er, but first I have to find my game boy and beat the others games I haven't. ^_^;;

Woohoo another person who likes Shinji! XD I refered to him as sucky because There's so many hate sites I see ol ;_; I don't find him suck though >_<

a Nice thing to know though with CoTHK about Wagnard and Ashram [spoiler?] is that Wagnard doesn't hurt him as much, sure he still manipulates the hell out of him, but Wagnard still sucks! XP It's kinda weird comparing between the two, like with RK OAV and TV, it's different, but at least it's still linked. There's not much of a link with the Lodoss one timeline wise. ^_^; [spoiler]

The collages you made are sweet. ^_^ excellent for putting little side things on the sites and what not.

If you can stomach PS1 games running on a PS2, I hear Alundra is a good bet for the LoZ addicted. Although, I can't say I've really played too many games like LoZ - nothing to do with PS games, but Terranigma is just about the best LoZ-style romp that isn't actually LoZ that I've ever played. It's a SNES game, so if you're versed in emulators (namely ZSNES), it's definetly worth your time to download it. Or I could send it to you, if you'd like.
However, I do agree that Final Fantasy X would probably interest you to NO end. It's orgasmic, and it's not too complexe and anal in the statistics stakes. Though if you really, REALLY hate dubbing, the voices may get on your nerves - but it's not that badly acted, really.
And, last but CERTAINLY not least... it's about as far from LoZ as you can get, but Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 are two of the finest games ever made for the PS1/PS2 platforms. Though if you hate games that're shorter than a week's worth of gameplay, you should probably rent them instead of buy them. Either way, don't miss out... trust me. :p
