*pokes* Is this thing on? Oh. Hi. I'm Solatrus (Cogit Latinae. Think Latin, if you don't know the language). Anyway, Aertyr's been bugging me like mad to join this ridiculous place, so here I am.
A bit about me: Obviously I'm a gamer, or else I'd probably have no interest here. My favorite game series is The Legend of Zelda, and I have played, beaten, and enjoyed (with the exception of Zelda 2... that one I didn't enjoy so much) every single one released here in the states. Yes, I play as Link and Toon Link in Brawl. Enough of that.
I also write electronic music, which is fun as hell. DON'T HATE. And before you ask, no, I don't do LSD, or Acid, or anything like that.
Active games (other than the obvious above): Guild Wars (send a PM to Jeremiah Astrum)
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (3 Heart playthrough)
Final Fantasy IV (DS Re-release)
Systems I own/have owned: PC (Duh. See specs below.)
PC Specs: APEVIA X-QPACK2-BL/500 Black/Blue (MicroATX) Case
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz
ATI Radeon HD 3870
Seagate 750 GB SATA HD
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio 7.1
I mean, it's a very good game, and it's neat to have it on the handheld I own, plus with the extras that weren't on the original SNES version that I also own, but uhm... where's our sequel, Square? Edit: And by sequel, I mean the sequel to Chrono Cross, too.
Ah well, that's life. Yay for more RPG goodness on my DS. Maybe I'll get around to finishing Final Fantasy III and IV soon, eh? Oh man... Or maybe not. I think I hear Mother 3 calling me for a second play through. *cough*
Yeah. On a side note, I think I have an idea for another video game remix, and I'm also reorking that Golden Sun remix I posted awhile ago. OC ReMix didn't like it enough as the song currently was, the elitist bastards. Hah. Well, all of the comments were good ideas, though.
So, I've been playing through that Jedi Temple thingy that's up for grabs. It's pretty fun. And hard. Harder than most of the rest of the game, but meh, it's too short. I feel a bit gypped. However, the new playable skins are fun. Playing through the game as Qui-Gon, anyone? :D But Qui-Gon looks weird using Starkiller's stance...
All in all, it was a bit of a binge spending, and I probably should not have done so. Honestly not enough for the price.
And I felt like being a bit of an achievement whore on this game. >_>
I was mildly disappointed in the final chapter, especially the final boss.
Took me long enough, eh? You'd think a Mother fan such as myself would at least learn that Japanese moonspeak so I could play the game back when it came out. Nope, I waited for the fan translation to be done. And I took forever to beat that.
The rest of the game was a blast, and more difficult than I was expecting.
I'll play it again, probably fairly soon after I beat Mother 1 and 2... again.
Is this thing on? Hi. I'm Solatrus. It's pronounced Soul-ah-trus, but if you can't do that, just call me Jeremy, or Jere (pronounced Jer) because I'm used to being called by my real first name online anyway.
Not much to say. Read my profile. I don't really feel like typing it all over again. It's a good enough intro.
But I guess that's not good enough for some of you, sooo, yeah Aertyr's been bugging me to get an account here at Destructoid, and I see no reason why not to.
Solatrus? Lolwut. Solatrus is a made of Latin word from solis (meaning sun) and atrus (meaning darkness), creating the enjoyably fun paradox of Sun of Darkness, or DarkStar, if you'd rather be lazy. Yes, I do happen to really like Latin, it's a kickass language, despite it being dead.
Can I go back to my life or am I going to be permanently scarred by this place? o_O
