gorsecloud: (friends - well go together)
I'm going to be upfront and say right now that if you're an atheist or skeptic this might not be the journal entry for you. Not that I have any problem with that - you're perfectly welcome to believe or not believe whatever you wish or want to - just that you might not appreciate me talking a lot about God in this entry.

And here is a cut so you don't have to read if you don't want. )


Hope everyone's having a good day!
gorsecloud: (Awkward Gorse is awkward)

You know, it kind of bothers me that any day I take my ADHD meds, I almost invariably am up until 6 am (this stuff is supposed to be short acting). And almost invariably, it's on one of my days with the 9 am class. And of course today, I can't exactly go to class then come back to my apartment and sleep until 4 pm either, because my mom is coming to pick me up for the homecoming game. Should be fun - will hopefully see some old high school buddies of mine. Maybe I'll even get to play some Abyss while I'm at home. I've kind of been wanting to canon review but I don't have many anime episodes with sh!Luke.

In other news the PMD game, [livejournal.com profile] riftedguilds is chugging along. Hoping to have it up and ready to open in... a couple weeks tops. I'm apping Luke there (and no one was surprised), and am looking forward to working with Ran and Holo on this thing. I just hope I'm not getting in over my head because hahhhh running a game is serious crap, you know? I really need to avoid the rpanoncomm more. It's so paranoia-inducing and I really freak the hell out over things enough (just ask Saffy) without adding to that, and yet at the same time I'd rather learn from others mistakes than make them myself.  I also worry about being able to run it and being able to keep up with my current games - [livejournal.com profile] luceti and [livejournal.com profile] paradisa. I'm never gonna have an impressive muselist, I think... and tbh I think I'm okay with that.

I am also beginning to wonder if I've always had my blinders on for politics or if this crap really is as insane as it looks like it is - Topeka's game of chicken with its own county governments, the whole "Personhood" movement in Mississippi, the anti-Abortion law in Congress... Am I the only one who sees this as the government playing games with people's lives and livelihoods? Because it's not funny anymore. It never really was funny, but when someone guilty of assault gets to walk right back out of prison to go beat their victim even more for having the gall to tell on them, all because the city and county governments are having a tiff over who wants to pay for it? When a woman has to be afraid of criminal investigation because of a natural miscarriage, or is afraid her life-saving abortion will be denied just because some person has set the rules that way to fit their own ideology?

Good lord, I hate politics.

Okay, now that you've followed my meandering train of thought everywhere. I think I'm done. ... I think. If not I'll come edit or something idk. Also, Saffy and Kukki are my not!moms, and awesome not!moms they are. Also Cherry is either my sibling or my original. Just thought everyone should know that.

Okay going to attempt to pass the hell out and get some sleep before class.

Spoilers for Tales of the Abyss, majority of them up to Tower of Rem, but possibly some after as well, so be wary. 

This has to do with the slight controversy around Luke's character development in the third part of the game. 

Reality is not a happy thing.  )

--------------------

Sometimes I feel like I think too much about stuff like this. But yeah, anyway. I haven't seen anything huge on the arguments for either side, but I still felt like standing up for the way the game is

And now that I've spent so much time on that, I need to go get back to studying. WHEE.

 So, I got Golden Sun: Dark Dawn the day it became available. And I beat it in around two days. There are plenty of points, good and bad, about this game. Overall, I liked it. But one of my biggest complaints is how short the game was. 

However, as I've played the game through a second time, some of the suspicions I developed the first time around have bloomed into something bigger. I really do think that the game was meant to go on longer, and that somebody, perhaps Nintendo, told them to cut it off early. 

Dark Dawn Spoilers under the cut.  )
