Oh long time no see my old friend LJ. How I neglect you in favour of working myself to an early grave at a coffee shop.
Well, now is a good a time as any to get back into keeping up my LJ, especially since I've been thinking about RPing again. In like, a game, not with like one or two people over AIM.
So yes, characters I've been thinking about getting back into good ol' LJ RP with?
Well, there are my kind of default muse things I go to who are always easy to play anywhere; Yorda, Sakon, Balthier and Honey being my darlings.
But now that I have my PS3 back in working order, a few other muses seem to be nudging me. Namely the Prince of the really pretty Prince of Persia game. Could have fun with the whole "So what's your name?" thing. Fuck that Destan shit, he's always just The Prince to me. Problem is, while I love the more recent re-imagining of this Prince, my heart will always belong to the lovely chap from the Sands of Time who originally sounded like he was educated at Cambridge and complained like a champion. So it's a tough choice on Princes, especially since SoT has gone through so many changes (many of which were met with Stern Disapproval) and the story just got all twisty and weird, especially with all the spin-off games (only one and a half of which I've played).
Second of all is Ezio Auditore de Firenze mostly because I'm the kind of person that, in a game taking place in Renaissance Italy, I want to play an ninja who says 'Bene' like a motherfuckin' pimp.
Third and foremost is a character from a game I haven't actually played on account of not having an X-Box 360. I have, however, been following closely the 100% completion Let's Play
. That's right. Agent Francis York fucking Morgan. I just want to throw this wonderful ball of insanity into some game somewhere and just watch the utter mindscrew that happens when he walks into a room and opens his mouth. I think he'd be fun to play as I seem to have a thing for deeply intelligent but highly neurotic detective characters with multiple personalities
. Also York seems to share my love for punk rock and old B movies.
Another thing for me to ramble about is, after looking up some things on the new Silent Hill movie, subtitled 'Revelation', I found this
and wasn't nearly upset as I thought.
I'll get to the why of that in a minute, but first I need to ask a very important question.
How the fuck do they plan on making a movie based on the third game after that profoundly stupid corner they wrote themselves into at the end of the first film?! No, seriously. Did Heather just grow up in the foggy otherworld? Speaking of, the girl they got to play Heather? Not too shabby. Could do with the reddish bags under her eyes but otherwise, I can't complain. Vincent on the other hand...
Anyway, back to why I'm not so upset about our friend P-diddy appearing in the third film as I was about his little tapdance and wink in the first film. I suspect that our good friend Triangle Man is probably going to fulfill the role of Valtiel, acting as the guide rather than an antagonist. At least I hope so. After all, it's pretty common fan speculation that Pyramid Head and Valtiel are similar entities, if not one in the same with just different roles to play. Pyramid Head acted as judge, jury and executioner to James' and his massive pile of guilt, while Valtiel was benevolent (as much so as some twisted abomination of the Silent Hill otherworld can be anyway) towards Heather. Both seem to have roles equivalent to angels or demigods. So if they're simply playing on what is already fan speculation and using Pyramid Head's image just to make it more accessible to more casual fans? Sure, okay, I can deal. Just get rid of the goddamn bugs. I mean seriously, what the hell.
Eagerly awaiting both Catherine and American McGee's Alice in June. And Portal 2...
Anwyay, should have a massive sketch and art dump soon since it's been ...several... months... since... ...yeah.
Let's just pretend that there isn't over a year's difference between this post and my last one.
A'ight. Jabbers out!
