y helo thar 4th wedding anniversary. We went to Otto's. I had beer. We're going out to a movie in an hour or so.

Also, Orochi Warriors is the bleeping win. 70+ characters to play. So much leveling, weapon farming, and maxing out to be had. At first, the battles felt slow (I was used to Dynasty Warriors 5 and its hordes of enemies who fall over when sneezed on), but after beefing up some characters and abilities, I can kill much faster and it seems like a proper beat 'em up peon-smashing good time.

OW inspired me to make some Cao Ren wallpaper to cheer up my apeshit work self. (Don't get me wrong. Work is great. Just nuts right now because I am partially in charge of a monster project. I put on my robe and wizard hat.) 1280x1024 PNG - feel free to download if you wish. I basically squished a bunch of tutorials as I saw fit. The gallery description explains the gist of what I did. It was fun and not really that difficult - just time-consuming because I experimented a crapton to see which techniques I liked best.

Current Mood: drunkdrunk
Current Music: Ogre playing DS

Did you get the game yet? I've been new game syndroming to the point where I wrote a FAQ for Buster Beetle. (It's posted on GameFAQs. v1.1 with quotes and more asskicking strategies will be up later this week.) I'm thinking of writing one for Ieyasu Tokugawa, a.k.a. that cannon head Samurai Warriors guy. I'm a fan of fun to play characters who are quite capable but commonly overlooked for not being god tier spammers.

Sadly, both of the GameStops in town were without a copy on Friday, and I haven't gotten around to trying again. I've got a three-day weekend coming up after exams this week, so I'll probably try again.

We just bought an Xbox 360 and another copy of Orochi Warriors for it. We wanted an Xbox anyway because there's good stuff coming out and the PS2 has been languishing near death for a while, so we figured why not? I'd be up for donating our PS2 copy of the game.

The downside is I have to unlock everybody all over again. It's fun to revisit that brand new phase, especially because I'm leveling more efficiently this time around (being more diligent about earning character attributes as I get the characters so I won't rush through a story and wind up having to grind attributes and weapons later), but I miss chaos mode assclownery. Chaos is awesome in this game because it feels like a natural extension of hard mode, not torture that overvalues defensive playing. You still get health drops (including turkeys and full recovery jars) and you can heal by switching guys or standing next to allies. You do need to fight with care unless you're playing a broken spammer, but at least you're not SOL if you mess up once and get bumped around a crowd.
