Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

Hm just felt like it.
Woke up and it's 10pm on December 31st...nothing else really to do.
My PS2 is still locked down under Guitar Hero usage.
However, there's a bunch of Comiket 71 stuff to look forward to!

Currently listening to IOSYS's new album (loopy as hell...that locked girl rendition makes me think of Patch being forced into a dress or something...and of course O-Overdrive.)

There'll probably be more but I'm a bit less enthused about C71 than C70.

Maybe it's cause of my lack of hard drive space...then again that's never stopped me.
I don't know, probably cause I have no clue what's being released (being remedied as I'm torrenting the catalogue.)

Also, I think I'm going to have to crack and download the ultimate sad girl in snow anime Kanon.
Need more Kyon :V

Kara no Kyoukai

Remember Warakia of the Night in Melty Blood?
He'd gotten so powerful he was just a concept (your worst fear), so Shiki couldn't really take him out (no physical form) until he had Arcueid help him and Sion by manifesting (by using her reality marble) him into a physical form where Shiki could hit the points.

Meet Ryogi Shiki. Female. Prototype for Tohno Shiki and actually from Nasu's first? work, Kara no Kyoukai. Actually stronger, as she can kill concepts, plus she doesn't need those wussy glasses (Wonder how she stays sane.) Official movie or animated short? Not sure, ufotable is actually real but Comiket 71 seems an odd event to announce an official work.

A response to "Whatever happened to online etiquette?"

1. People are jerks. Not all of them, but many. What Pogue calls “online etiquette” never existed—or if it did, it was just like regular etiquette: something some of us aspire too, and others ignore and mock. People were jerks on Bulletin Board Systems in the 80s and on USENET in the 90s, and people are jerks on web forums now.

Merry Christmas

YouTube just keeps the lols coming, now it doesn't accept new lines anywhere in it's fields.
This means video descriptions, even if you edit them later.
It also means complaint forms, so even my snarky message to them could not contain an enter.
Freaking idiocy.

I'm quite looking forward to Arcana Heart now that it's out.
Actually that's a lie I was looking forward to it ever since it was announced.
Lilica is mine.

GGAC is looking more loopy than ever. It's still GG but still, I have a lot of reservations just seeing it in action. And yes the voices are still unforgiveable.

MBAC verB should be hitting the arcades soon. Get to see if people can figure out how to close in with White Len, she has lots of really cool shit once she's close to you but getting in there is pretty hard (shitty shitty air normals.)

IaMP now works again, or rather, the superglue mod I did on the trigger button seems to have finally decided to work. This is awesome for me, now I don't have to ship it back to Hong Kong for no replacement (just a refund) because it's out of stock/print.

Youtube can not do SJIS

I figured out the problem through simple trial and error.
Using a 500kb clip of Ichigo Mashimaro, I attempted to upload under the very simple title/description/tag "Nope."
It worked.
I then tried with my IOSYS movie title/description/tag, but with the same video.
It failed.
I then tried just having the title with SJIS, then the description, then the tag.
All three failed.
Only when I completely cleaned all fields from any trace of Japanese text did the upload finally work.

This would also explain why googling the error only gave Japanese webpages.

Polysics/Strong Machine 2

Even if Youtube currently sucks for me, there's still awesome stuff on it.

YouTube fucked me over

It's official, I can't upload to Youtube anymore.
Not in firefox 2, not in firefox 1.5, and not in internet explorer.
I know it's a shitty javascript error on THEIR part, because I can upload to jhed (jhu webspace) with THEIR javascript uploader just fine.
Fucking A.

IOSYS strikes again.

Udongein Udongein Udongein Udonein!

Googlevideo works for now.

Guilty Gear Act wait Accent Core is out.
New announcer is gay as fuck.
COMPLETELY redone voices are throwing me off like fucking crazy.
Some voice actors have been changed, and the ones who stayed completely redid their samples.
Like a lot of their sayings have been...well slowed down.
Example is Sol goes BAAAANDIT BRINGER.
Not sure if there's an option to use old voicing, as it's really fucking up my hearing these matches (sometimes I swear it's the same sometimes I swear it's completely different.)

Bridget...girlier? Yeah possible. Loli to the max.
Johnny, I think same VA, but his ensenga is like ENSENGA! RAWR!
Testament, mostly the same.
Faust, mostly the same.
Dizzy, completely different, maybe the movie file I had was wonky but a lot worse.
Sol, is it still Daisuke doing the voicing? Not sure
Zappa, same.
Ky, same.
May, same.
Anji, unsure, I have one movie of him sounding mostly the same, and the other it seems all his samples are lot angrier.
Edit: will be updated as I watch more. (I have like 100 matches of ggac so yeah)

Already finding shit that looks stupidly broken.
Half life coin loop otg from Johnny, half life combos off grand viper for Sol...
EX moves look weird.
I'm probably going to throw the filebank matches on u2b because of how stupendously horrible filebank is.

Melty Blood Act Cadenza bonanza

Wow Ecole came out with a verB demo that let's you test out White Len!
Wait a sec, they said they couldn't bring MBAC to the computer and that we are all stuck with Final Tuned!
What liars!

Second half of this post is the finals of the NEC MBAC tournament are finally up (well some of it anyway.)
Pretty damn good show by Sp00ky and Zar here.

Verizon can not do math.

Not a video, just a phone conversation.
Yes it's long, it's 22 minutes long.
It shouldn't be.
Just listen to the first five minutes or so and then go burn some cats to dispel your now exploding rage against the stupid people.

The last person he gets, the floor manager, says something to the effect of "IT'S A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION."


I fucking hate stupid people.

Such Great Heights

I wonder if this is how wafer production really is (a lot more robotic/isolated) then I thought it was.

Star Ocean 3

I've basically holy shit default font changed new blogger beta has made me stupidier I can't even choose a font number revert revert!
Anyway, I've basically hid myself from the internet (not really) and buried myself in this game.
It's silly, there is SO much silliness, for example you're on the way to tame a HUGE dragon, and your midboss is basically...Peter fucking Pan.
Why is Peter Pan in an ancient dragon cave in the middle of God knows where?
Who knows.
Things like that ("I'm a winner!) and the huge plot "twist" (lolwhat) made it hard for me to take any of the late game story conflicts seriously at all.

That being said, for some reason I still really like the characters, especially Maria.
Not sure why, I think I might have to add a blue hair to my bookworm/mage/yanderes with swords/random lolis deal (the random lolis category is falling further and further into obsoletion, which is good, because people always look at me funny when I say that category; primula is easily covered by mages, and Ren now falls under blue hair...Shana falls under yanderes with swords...if anything I sort of want to add in cold "artificial lifeforms," except GA's Vanilla failed spectacularly.)
Anyway I like Maria enough to want to draw her.
Except I have 260 battle trophies to take care of first.

This time, it’s a sweet fleeting love story about Dejiko, who has become an adult. The story starts on a certain year’s Christmas. Dejiko, who works part time at a cake shop, meets a boy, Senba Takurou, on her way home. The two who ran across each other by a tiny coincidence meet again in the city soon after. Dejiko was becoming interested in Takurou and while looking forward to meeting him again, he comes to Dejiko’s workplace… Will Dejiko’s love be fulfilled? Look forward to the story!

…Wait what?
