My finished FFVI Tattoo

I posted the other day about plans to go ahead with a gaming Tat (my first gaming-related one), and of course the request to post the finished tat was made. So here I am fulfilling that request, I've wanted to get this done for a long time, but for no reason , never got it done, until now. Jesus I can't stop staring at it. for any gamer out there contemplating a gaming tat, FUCKING GET ONE!! I feel like the greatest gamer in the world lol, nothing shows your dedication to your hobby more than professing your love for your favorite game by having it branded into your body for the rest of your life,

God I can't stop staring at it

oppinion on gaming tattoo

Friday I'm going in for a tat, it would be my first gaming-related Tattoo.

I've pretty much got my heart set on the magitek Armor portion of the logo without the red stripe. it would be all black. I want to pay homage to my favorite game of all time and this specific image is the only thing FFVI related that does not scream NERD. its something only a gamer would recognize, and to the casual person it would simply look like a pretty cool tat. I plan on getting it done on my forearm/shoulderblade. though I think the forearm would be better place for it. another Idea was for a Amano picture of Celes on the back of my shoulder blade






Feel free to post your thoughts on the idea, I don't mind negativity if you honestly dislike the tattoo say so. I'm even open to suggestions on a Tattoo. just don't suggest a badge of virginity like a 1-up mushroom or an NES controller. I want something that does not scream GAMER DORK, it has to be something ONLY a gamer could recognize and simply look pretty cool to the untrained eye (think the Okami Tattoos)   read

My Comic-con haul (figurine edition)

Just got back from the NY Comic-con, . And as expected I had a blast. Played a little Warhammer Online (It's WoW clone to be honest, not that theres anything wrong with that). and watched other people play Metal Gear Online (WANT)

although I came home with more shit than I thought possible. What I really went for was figurines. Or rather a "Certain" set of figurines. I think by looking at the photo below you know what I had my eyes set on the moment I set foot in the building lol

Oh and an apology to whichever one of you females went to the con dressed as Matt. I'm afraid I might have impregnated you when you weren't looking.

Misery loves company

In advance I would like to say I'm terribly sorry for the kicked pets, gouged eyes, shattered monitors and destroyed lives caused by the following video

New content on JP XBL

Well, at least it is for me. I tend to check it's marketplace every few weeks or so. Logging on today I noticed the following

Xbox originals : Puyopop fever and MAGATAMA

I'm sure everyone is aware of what Puyopop is, but for those of you who have no clue about MAGATAMA (yes, it has to be in caps) from what I dug up it's seems like some kind of Action RPG. If I ever feel like wasting 15$ I'll give it a shot looks half decent.

Both games are accompanied by FREE Gamerpics and themes.

There also looks to be a video up of a new DBZ game called "DBZ Burst Limit" I enjoyed the lil nod to OVER NINETHOUSAND they threw into the OP montage. aside from that MEH ANOTHER FIGHTER.

Also a video for Tales of Vesperia, which i promptly downloaded and FUUUUUUUCK it's beautiful

And last but not least a DEMO for Raiden fighter aces a next gen revival of the classic SHMUP it clocks in at 191MB and im 37%

also a bunch of DLC for Idolmaster, but its not like we can use it anyhows.   read

Persona 4, confirmed, Screenshots and complaining inside

after looking at these scans I am officially calling the series PERSONUGH!!!

I enjoyed the first game. and chances are very high that I'll buy Fes also

So why do I feel so underwhelmed by these screenshots? and it's not even the fact that it's being released on a last gen console, which in itself is upsetting.

For whatever reason I cant bring myself to care. perhaps because i just finished playing the game and I really don't want to play the same exact thing again, so soon, and it really does look like the same game with a fresh coat of paint

Hopefully when details emerge I could start to look forward to this....but Jesus why PS2 Atlus WTF? that in itself is a travesty, image how beautiful this game could look with a Next-Gen facelift

Shit, this post is making me late for work, have a nice day D'toid

Black Mage keychain eludes me

Colette posted a story about some Chocobo Tales Keychains on Ebay about a week ago. Absolutely enamored with the Black/White Mage one I took a chance on it. I figured at 10$ I can't go wrong even if I don't get the black mage.

http://www.destructoid.com/final-fantasy-fan-alert-chocobo-tales-keychains-70804.phtml

Today they arrived in the mail. and was greeted by not two boxes with random keychains in them but THREE boxes with keychains in them. And one of those boxes gave me double the keychains!! and a Cait sith pin!

AND STILL NO FUCKING MAGE!! ARRRRRRRG






Now if you'll excuse me I think I'm going to see if that seller is still selling more keychains.
not that I don't like the chains, I like the translucent Chocobo and the Slime is a part of my keychain now. but FUUUUUUCK those mages are damn EPIC!!   read

I'll throw the formalities to the side because you all know who the man is and why you're going to read this interview.

Goodwill Hunting

After hearing Dyson and his visits to that retro graveyard called Goodwill. I decided pay a visit to a goodwill I discovered nestled away close to where I work on my way home yesterday

And while I might not have made out like a bandit. I did find 2 old games


kinda happy about Myst, believe it or not i've never played the game before. hopefully it runs on vista, i don't see why not. they also had a brand new copy of MBL2K7 for the 360 but I passed on it


I just wanted to show that its not just Dysons goodwill. If you have one close to anywhere within driving distance you owe it to yourself to check it out. and dont be ashamed to dig through piles of used crap CD's honestly, inspect each and every one. thats probably the best advice I can give you. good luck D'toiders.

Edit: doing a search online I found two more goodwills within a 10 minute drive. looks like i might have to pay each of them a visit before the sun sets   read

Lost Odyssey review up

Seeing as how my 360 just went on a 3 month vacation to Texas I sadly wont be picking this title up at day one. and because i don't want to spoil the experience for myself I forbade myself from reading the whole review. So I skipped the meat and potato's and went right for the last 3 paragraphs DESSERT!!

This was not supposed to happen to me

NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO


I knew this day would come,

as soon as that launch unit guaranty ran out...that ended after 2 years right?

sigh, I'm so upset by this, I really am. one would think that a functioning 360 for 2 years I have no right to complain compared to what all of you have gone through with your 360's but to hell with that, consoles should never break period. No system, as far back as my Atari 2600. has ever "broke" I left my PSone on accidentally 2 days strait and it broke but that was my own stupidity. i understand these things happen. but this is a first for me so I really want to lash out, Perhaps tomorrow after work I'll try the towel trick or whatever other methods the internet has conjured up. thank goodness it's late i can go to sleep and not have to worry about this until tomorrow afternoon   read

BREAKING NEWS: CLOVERFIELD PREQUEL

Wow, just wow. As if the hype weren't already at a fever pitch. J.J. Abrams made a Cloverfield prequel quietly while we salivated over it's predecessor.

Job well done all around, on the greatest viral marketing campaign ever made for a motion picture
