Holy shit I've been waiting on this volume FOREVER.
For the uneducated this is official Tsukihime manga volume 3.
The picture is Shiki from volume 2, when he's gone into Nanaya (assassin) mode.

This has been my new distraction for a while, I'm just late in posting because I wanted to unlock more things for that pretty screenshot.

Anyway, it's a sidescrolling shooter with Air characters.
It is hard.
As in "easy" mode is hard.
Summer mode alone takes approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes to get through, and this is with no heals and only 9 hits before game over.
Yes I used a trainer to get through summer mode, and that's why I have Kanna and Yao Bikuni =D

So far I have:
Winged Misuzu
Crazy Kano
Yao Bikuni

Hijiri rocks, her knives are amazingly powerful with a good spread.
Winged Misuzu is Misuzu on crack, too good.
Haruko sucks -_-a
I have not played with Crazy Kano/Keisuke/Uraha/Yao Bikuni yet.
I suspect Yao Bikuni is broken as well.

Edit: Holy SHIT Yao Bikuni is amazing.
Her punch FIRES A PROJECTILE THAT STILL COUNTS AS A PUNCH and kills almost everything in one hit.
Her fully upgraded shots form a GIGANTIC CIRCLE around herself before moving out at a target, sort of like a cone.

Dead or Alive...mostly Dead

Fresh from the powerbook of another Hollywood hack! I want to work at a theater. Just so I can punch the face of every last man, woman, child, and invalid that goes to see crap like this. I don't discriminate who I'd sucker punch. Equal opportunities... FOR PAIN. Unless they're much bigger than me. Then it's just a stern fist shake... When they're not looking. Naturally.

Edit: Link updated, hopefully it works now. Warning, Rapidshare ahead.

Impatience is the devil.

Call of Duty 2

So I finally caved in.

Random thoughts:
The Thompson is ridiculous at small-medium range.
I can not snipe for the life of me.
I am totally unsure if there is leading at far ranges, as I haven't HIT anything at far ranges yet.
Search and Destroy is ridiculously hard for me as of now.
Shotguns are powerful.

Double KO

Wow, Sony is STUPID upon stupid.
Remember the CD protection that allowed people to install malware without tripping anti-viruses?
Turns out LAME source code was embedded deep within the copy protection.
LAME is open source under LGPL (not GPL), and by open source I mean if you use the code, you have to make your application open source.
So basically Sony used it without permission.

chioyoung: they had a Turducin
SibladeKO: turducin
SibladeKO: what is turducin
chioyoung: = duck stuffed inside a chicken stuffed inside a Turkey
SibladeKO: you just blew my mind
SibladeKO: wtf

KBILLY's super sounds of the '70s just keep on comin...

Reservoir Dogs is an awesome movie, the soundtrack only used '70s music, but there's something infectious about the entire soundtrack.
I think it's all the horns and trumpets and real instruments blaring like crazy along with the ragged guitar.
I'm a sucker for real band/orchestra instruments.

I heard Creed's cover of Magic Carpet Ride before I heard the original one by Bedlam.
And of course you have Stuck In The Middle With You, which puts you in that oh so fun homicidal mood.
"Clowns to the left 3SKBITCH of me, jokers to the right WTFUSELESSHOG, here I am stuck in the middle NOIDONTHACK with you."

I find it amusing that centrist political bloggers like this phrase enough to make up more than 70% of the first page hits when googled (the phrase, that is).

In short, I had found a script ripper app on an obscure but still updated JP website.
However, it was for the CD version, not the DVD version, so I emailed the guy asking if there was DVD version.

His reply basically says no DVD version, and no plans to work on one at this time due to the differing formats of their ..a files (compressed txt files).

Anyway, at least Oh! Text Hooker works so I can ghetto script rip (Stupid repeating sentences ugh.)

Slowly but surely converting the layout.
Frikkin rounded corners are built directly into the gifs half the time.
Also, I need adobe photoshop back -_-

Progress is slow, but finally starting again on Utawareru Mono's translation!

Wish I had a script rip, it'd make things so much easier than doing it myself.

Adel is innocent.

I don't mean he claims to be. I mean the military says so. It held a secret tribunal and ruled that he is not al Qaeda, not Taliban, not a terrorist. The whole thing was a mistake: The Pentagon paid $5,000 to a bounty hunter, and it got taken. The military people reached this conclusion, and they wrote it down on a memo, and then they classified the memo and Adel went from the hearing room back to his prison cell. He is a prisoner today, eight months later.

Oh yeah, absolutely fucking horrifying.
I hate to say it, but I'm glad I'm not a Muslim in this day and age.

You lose Kansas.
Heck, even the pope supports evolution over intelligent design.
Now excuse me, I have to set my calendars back one hundred years or so.

That's Half-Baked!

Found a new diversion, a site to throw your uncreated ideas/inventions around.
There are actual practical ideas, and then there are the slightly insane people ideas.

Antivertising is one of the latter.
Slightly insane people to look for are wagster, benfrost, 2 fries shy of a happy meal and squeak (who writes everything in limerick).

Summon Suffering

If you were "in the know" you'll notice I've updated the right side with a link to people's Soul Calibur 3 character creations, including my own.
I only have two at the moment, Unlimited Saga's Laura and FF4's Rydia.
I think I'll post Last Blade 2's Hibiki next.
And then...I might be stupid enough to attempt Stephen Colbert.

Sweet Kitty

Hello Kitty has a pet cat.
This strikes me as wrong on no less than two levels.

Glitch on the level of Roll Cancelling found in SC3

G225, G885
I don't really think this makes everything dead.
First off, you have to basically EXPECT a GI.
No one expects a GI really, but how many people expect Re-GIs?
At high play, a lot.
The Re-GI wars were hilariously annoying, this cuts down on them.
Honestly Kenny learned to GI my Talim pretty quickly, I'm sure if I learned to Re-GI consistently it'd get stupider.
I think it actually gives the initial GI-er an advantage, cause unless you FULLY BAITED A GI (i.e. mindgame aka depth), you're not going to expect it.
And when you try to counter with a GI of your own, they will buffer with G225 and retain advantage.

I have yet to make judgement on the ability to G225 out of stances and throw escapes.
Stances still unsure...throw escapes's like punishing a throw with an anti-throw.
I think it's more mind games again .
(Have to guess right first, then perform the buffer input, then counter with something that will hit fast enough)

I think though this will make high level SC3 very hard for me to even crack -_-a
Like roll cancelling, I still can't do that shit reliably.
