Well a friend gave me Guild Wars Factions. I wasn't actually planning on playing guildwars anytime again (with an almost endless stream of jobs i have to do this month)but i got some time off to play it. After clocking about 4 hours into the game i can honestly say that they've taken alot of the frustrations from the first game and have made things alot better. The whole game itself feels streamlined, almost like trying to compare Kingdomhearts one and two. You don't have to finish the first game btw, you can just move your characters over into the Asian like version of the world.

Once you get to asian land, things get remarkably better. Remember those hard to find skills that took a pain in the ass to find, well you can buy them now for an honest price (its to cheap but its doable). Oh that forsaken Profession NPC that was so hard to find in the first game is there after you complete mission2. My only real qualm is that its still kinda glitchy as in collision is still bad, and it still really disturbs me when you the characters talk but you can't see their mouths move. As if everyone's some kind of ventrilaquist. The voice acting is ok, and at the voice actors did a fine job at being entertaining. The new story is also good enough to keep going after those missions. Its ok, and a good way to spend dinner while drinking tea. (and i swear the community is great after you get past the halfway point of the game, most of the the more unsavory people get left beind somehow.)

Anyway that latter was for those who've played GW. But for anyone out there who has the free time, i would reccomend it. Its not WoW, oh no. Guild wars has found its own nice niche, and Factions is a vast improvment.


Also the Second Naruto Movie is slow. The whole selling point for the movie is seeing Gara just killing everyiething. Naruto himself is getting slower and dumber by the month, there are points when Sakura beings to sound like a cocky single mom, and the new characters for the movie are somewhat unintersting and boring compared to the first. Bleh. Its a step down from the first movie in my opinion, both in quality and quanitity. Still, i can't help but like Naruto as a series. Its just i was forced to ask "where's the effort going?" while watching the movie. Are they planning something special in the future? are they saving their budget for something that's will woo and raise us out of our seats again? and where the hell is Susuke, oh he's out there somewhere, probably in space or on Orichomoru's lap. explosions and an ending slower than Return of the King.

The Prophesy Holds True [Apr. 26th, 2006|07:51 am]
saint_sake
I'm reffering to something my parents told me after graduation. They basiclly made mention that none of my highschool friends would ever change. They would either stay the same, become worse, or get married. Today this two year old prediction still holds true, of my original 11 close allies in high school 4 have not changed 4 have gotten worse and one is married and one is engaged (to whom I have to help do their wedding next month). The ONLY ONLY exception is my old comrade Matt. I've known him since jr high and he's actually gotten better, both in personality and in life. But everyone else i remember from my high school has either go the drain or has stayed all but stagnant.

Then, what of I. Have i changed much since high school... i've gotten darker, plan things out much more (but still fail miserably at times) but at the same time... i'm not sure. Have i become a better person since that time? I've been through alot more pain and frustration that before but i've dealt with situations better than i would have in high school. I'm... getting older, but have am i better than who i was? Do i listen more to people? Do i argue less? I'm being plagued by these questions, these frustrations. I'm changed... alot but i'm not so sure how. I'm trying, trying for that better. To be there for my friends more when they need it. I'm trying to love more, but... its been costly. Very costly. I'm still going to keep tying, what else can i do. I don't want to stay the same, but i'm still afraid of who i could become.

(Invader Zim, G.I.R. and battling lulls....) [Apr. 21st, 2006|01:08 am]
saint_sake
G.I.R. is freaking awsome. At last a character who's far more random that i could ever hope for. "I like waffles". It's rediculously cute, is the best and most terrible friend one can have, and it can cook!! It can cook waffles and muffins, wild. Ja, I never like Invader zim, i know its kinda an old show (2001-2002) but somehow its really really grown on me. There's still a few parts to the series that seriously seriously disturbing (Zim basiclly "killing" a father, the veins comming from the children in the series, the fact that the main character is a out to kill or enslave everyone on earth) but somehow it stays quirky enough for me to have enabled me to perhaps overlook the flaws of the series. Its a shame it never got a chance to finish. Forever stuck on episode 8 of season two the chances of the series being resurected is close to none. Just one of those series that will never be completed.

On a personal note i've been stuck in somewhat of a lull lately. Kind of when the lake water is so still it seems almost like a trap of simmiering blue jellO. I've been trying to fight my way out of this, and apparenly my cold is helping me somewhat.

Finally i've been working on using my Graphic Tab more efficiently. P-chat is one of the most amazing things to do online ever. If you hhaven't heard of it its worth looking up. Today, my urge to help and support people has finally returned, now if only i don't screw up so much~ I'm going to keep on trying i guess, Die Lull die!

Good Friday [Apr. 15th, 2006|03:40 am]

Spring break is almost over. Its been a good week. Nothing too amazing nothing too spectacular or even really note worthy. But its been good non the less. I'm taken care of everything that needs to be done for Fanime. So no need to worry about that anymore. I got a new mini-job that should help pay for things. I'm almost done with a few more chapters of script. It seems that this is just part of the story where most writers would usually just skip over. Why write about something that isn't so memorable, nor life changing, nor even important to anyone else. I guess i really don't know whether to say that's a tragedy or if this is a blessing. A tragedy that my life has finally found a nice boring place to rest, or a blessing that things have finally quited down. Perhaps the recent few days have been a tell tail sign that things are "maturing". I can almost safely say, life is nice right now. Its just, its still missing something and i'm still looking for it~

Unexpected Resolutions [Apr. 8th, 2006|12:51 am]
saint_sake
Today, my pride and recent mentality was utterly crushed. If you've read my last post I wrote about how "frustrated" and frazzled about some friends and people this week. There's been alot of tension and alot of sheer and unnessesary dreama that has occured. But today, I have once again realized how low and stupid I really am in this world. I fell into the one trap that I hate the most, i became... more of less selfrightious. I really became the person who says "You did something wrong and you need to pay for it..." when I should realy have been "this is what you did, this is what you deserve, but that is not what you are going to get becuase..." I should have been more forgiving and i should have given the people in question more credit that I did. I came to the conclusion that they could never really grow up, and today... when that one person finally said "i'm sorry i admit i was wrong..." time stoped for me. Three seconds became 20, and my mind nearly shut down. This was, to me, the impossibibility, the most unprobable senario possible. And it happend. In the end I was the one proven wrong and i was the one who's pride was crushed completely and utterly.

Now everything has been compeletly resolved. The friendship that was lost, is now stronger than before. I now know where I fall and where I need to move and work on. And my pride has been reset to where it should be... as slow and true as possible. I am sorry and i am greatly humbled by the events of today.

*sigh of relief* looking to tomorrow [Apr. 6th, 2006|10:20 pm]

[mood |refreshedrefreshed]

So~ today I've learned an important lesson. "Never put Busness and Personal things together" ohhh man that's good advice. So I'm heading a project named "Finish the Fantasy" and last weekend we hit a relative crisis involving 2 (3 per say) of my older friends. Gabe, Al, and Chris. Gabe, is one of those friends who's mentality is always "i'm looking for a fight lets argue something so i can convince myself i'm right" type of people, Al is horrible at giving opinons especially ones that are more on the lines of critisism. Chris on the other hand is usually laid back and really doesn't care about things.

Of these three, there's Gabe. His actual philosiphy in life is that "fighting is enevitable" and that the only way to survive in this world is to be on top. I disagree with that way of life. I believe that fighting is not evevitable and that it is possible to make peace with two mature people. Though in the case of someone who is mature and someone who wants nothing more than to justify himself even when he is blatantly wrong, its all but unforuntate. Gabe needs to grow up though, becuase his lack of respect, selfishness, and lack of maturity has hurt many people and people who I work with every week. As frustrating as it has been to deal with him, and the problems these three have caused me and so many people, there's nothing i can really do now but be patient.

In any case this has been a good week. Non the more. And i'm looking forward to enjoy spring break this year. weeeee

so ya, daylight savings time is this sunday. Turn your clocks forward su. Today has been a good day. Jazz festival was the most fun i've had working, the choir concert at Chapman thing turned out ok. And for the most part, this week has been good.

I'm certainly in the mood of serving people right now. The part of me that just lives to do what i'm told seems to be fairly active. Anyway I'm going to buy the bus tickets for everyone in Fanime this weekend. and the person who was supposed to give me info on that one thing, i'm going to clobber with a stuffy hammer doll~ gah what the hell is that get together, when is it... people from numerous anime stores (anime nuts being of them) have HEARD of it... but that's all. Gah

Oh well on thing at a time.

oh btw i'm going to buy the bus tickets by weds i just need 70$ for each of em (round trip btw) weee thank you su.
