About
I'm a Londoner who enjoys the amusements of the video

FAVRIT GAMES:

-Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance
-Final Fantasy VI
-Shadow of the Colossus
-the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
-Megaman Legends
-Fallout 3
-Earthbound
-Mother 3
-Street Fighter Alpha 3 (even though I suck)


I also watch a lot of, usually older, films. My favourites are those of Kurosawa, Leone, Kubrick and John Hughes.
I sometimes take pictures with the big old Nikon camera my dad gave me, but I don't consider myself a photographer, as my main interest lies in drawing. That said, I'm an avid fan of comics (both eastern and western; I'll read anything from Osamu Tezuka to Mike Allred) and am currently working on my own of the web-based variety.
And if I watch any anime at all it's usually from before 1990. I don't play many sports, but I do boxing every now and then.

I haven't been able to make many updates lately,as I have become completely addicted to Persona 3.
Thank you, Dtoid community. I'm only on the second block of Tartarus and I'm enjoying it far more than I should be. Tell you what, I'll give you something to make up for it, here, take this:



Also, today commemorates the day I crawled out of the womb! I'll probably hit the town with some friends later to celebrate.
I'm playing Ghostbusters right now, and so far so awesome! The only real criticism I can offer so far is that the camera feels a tiny bit claustraphobic, which is extremely minor.

I'll make some variety of "proper" post at a later date.

I'm feeling tired and worn out, which is weird because it's not like I've going outside all that much.
I suppose it all started last month, when I decided to play the Dragon Quest IV DS remake. I can't really explain it, but from there I went on a rampage through possibly every unfinished jRPG I own. Or at least all the Final Fantasies.
So over the past two months that's:
-Dragon Quest IV DS
-Final Fantasy V Advance (A game so good it makes the Japanese orgasm, apparently)
-Final Fantasy VII (Thanks for the advice on this one, you guys!)
-Final Fantasy IV DS
-Final Fantasy XII

The strangest of all of these is XII. XII is a game I've always kind of hated, but as this jRPG binge progressed, I knew it was inevitable. I fell completely in love with the game, nothing has captured my imagination to such a degree since I saw the Empire Strikes Back for the first time.
I made a ridiculous amount of progress in all these games, but today, I'm completely worn out. I think it's finally come to an end, and my head is filled with pirates and dragons and ninjas and castles and big swords and doors that are actually monsters and Chocobos. I never want to see an ATB gauge again. (although, I am getting a sudden urge to fire up VI now...)

As of yet, Persona 3 remains untouched... but you never know...

I may be a little late on this, but I just noticed Final Fantasy VII in the PSN store for Ł7.99. Now I can honestly say that I've never played this game before, But I've heard a ton of stuff about it both ways (and quite frankly, its fanbase scares me).

The only thing that really bugged me about this game was the fact that they replaced Yoshitaka Amano (An incredible artist, with gallery shows all over the world and who has worked on classic animes such as Gatchaman, Tekkaman and Time Bokan) with Tetsuya Nomura (Someone who imitates the so-called "anime style", and not very well I might add, and who started a trend of stupid, girly-looking protagonists in games), honestly, only about three of his designs look slightly appealing to me (These being Barret, Tifa and Cid).

But I suppose I really have no idea what I am, or am not, missing. I've heard the soundtrack is quite good, and I mean, it has to have done something to earn such a rabid fanbase, right? (then again, maybe not)

Maybe I'll just wait until I have eight quid that I reeeaally don't need.
