Book of the Past:
I originally got into gaming when my brother broke his collarbone from a stupid skateboarding stunt my father allowed him to do ("Hey, son, won't it be cool if you hold onto the back of my car as I drive around town!?"). As a get well soon gift, my parents bought him a NES, from which his gaming days began. Me, I just enjoyed watching him play, mostly RPGs until I tried them myself eventually. My first game was Dragon Quest and I remember quitting shortly after the first dragon killed me. lol
Since then, though, I have enjoyed games for multiple reasons, mostly because I love stories and characters...and games are the perfect way for me to experience the hard work and strife that the characters have to go through. It's fun and I feel like I can play a part in their story. It's a much better story than mine.
My favorite RPGs of the past are (in no certain order):
Shadow Hearts 1 & 2
Well, this is going to be brief since all pertinent information is readily accessible on my new blog, but here's some of the highlights regarding recent news and updates on DOD3:
Monday, November 25th will be the 5th NicoNico Live Broadcast, featuring voice actors Uchida Maaya (Zero) and Higashiyama Nao (Mikhail). This may be the final broadcast before the Dec. 19 release.
Lots of speculation on the symbolism behind the Utautai sisters, what possible connection they may have to both the 7 Deadly Sins and comparatively the 7 Holy Virtues, as well as color symbolism.
The Halloween Contest has concluded... What's up next? Another undecided contest to celebrate the Dec. 19 release date! Be sure to voice any interest and/or ideas regarding this up-coming contest. This time, the prize will be an official DOD3 poster.
Also a ton more images have been added the Image Gallery, including crazy DOD3-ish photomanipulations that I made like the one above! Check them all out here:
All of this and more can be found on the main site: Drakengard 3 | Drag-on Dragoon 3 | DOD3
And lastly, a general Dtoid blogger question... Many times I try to use code to shrink down the size of an image...and on preview, it seems to work fine, but when the blog is actually saved and loaded, it doesn't work and simply displays the code. ^^; Any reason for this? Am I doing something wrong...? For example, here is the exact same image that I posted above, only I want it to be displayed smaller than the original size (500x181). Why does this not load right??
