Shakti's "Top 10" Video Games

February 28, 2011 at 11:05 PM - Games, Miscellaneous

I was wandering around dA for a bit trying to look for some inking tutorials/tips (derp), and somehow came across the Top 10 Video Games Meme.

Hey, why not? Let's give it a try. (In no particular order!)

Final Fantasy 7: I think this was one of the first RPGs I've ever played... This game inspired me to create the Aryvox and, eventually, the worlds they live in, so... Yeah.

Persona 3 Portable: AKIHIKO. As I've mentioned before, I love the characters and the story. Oh, and the epic final boss, complete with awesome music. I would totally fight Nyx (14 forms) again rather than, say, Nega Filgaia (9 forms) from Wild ARMs 3. Seriously.

Mass Effect series: GARRUS. PLAY AS A BADASS, SAVE THE GALAXY. How cool is that?! Also, aliens.

Warcraft 3: Finished the single player campaign for the original WC3, but not for Frozen Throne. : / What really got me hooked into this game was the variety of custom maps I was able to play... I was really fond of tower/hero defense maps.

Devil May Cry series: The first game, along with Guilty Gear and The Bouncer, was what prompted us to get a PS2, haha. Played all of the DMC games, haven't finished 3 yet...

Sonic Adventure 2: SHADOW. I think we got a Dreamcast just for this game. (Well, this and SA1, but we played SA2 first.) Back then, I haven't played any Sonic games since its Genesis days, so this game was really... interesting. Our Dreamcast eventually died, so we settled with SA2: Battle. (Now we have to get our A Ranks/emblems again, ugh.)

Half-Life series: Oh man, I was... 10 when the first game came out? The first encounter with the Grunt scared the hell out of me. ...When I finished HL2: Episode Two, I went back and played HL2 and Episode One all over again to get the gist of the story, which was a first for a FPS for me.

Portal: A puzzle game! With sentient robots that want to kill you! Also, cake Companion Cube.

World of Warcraft: My third MMORPG! (Before it was Earth and Beyond and Star Wars Galaxies.) Been playing this game on and off since its release.

Dungeon and Fighter: A beat 'em up MMO! How I got two characters to 70 mostly by soloing and still stay sane... I don't know.

...This was actually pretty fun to fill out. I should do memes more often. :V

So. Very. Tired...

*facedesk*

...Oh, hello!

Um, apologies for the absence (again). I've moved to a different clinic to work at since mid-January and they've been keeping me busy, eh-heh.

Yes, I still go to school. (OhGodI'mgonnabehereforever~)

At least it's Spring Break next week! :D

. . .

Uhhhn, still have work tomorrow. Must. Sleep. Now.

"Prinny, Dood!"

So, after playing BlazBlue for a while, we've decided to get a new game for the PS3: Disgaea 3.

(I... I played a ranked match for once! And got horribly owned by a Nu player. >_o *cough* Anyways...)

Looks like a grindfest, especially if you want to get the extra stuff done. ...I don't think I'll play often ever finish this game. X_x

What piqued our interest the most was the amount of familiar voice actors in the game... Mao is Vic Mignogna high on Red Bull. Beryl is Laura Bailey. Almaz is Johnny Young Bosch. (And so many more...)

Then came Chapter 5. Joshua was playing the map that had Gold Knuckle, and, when I heard his voice, I was like, "Was that Ragna..?" (Sh-shut up, blame my inner fangirl! D: )

. . .

Unfortunately, the internets could not confirm whether or not Patrick Seitz voiced Gold Knuckle. (He's got awesome dialogue, next to Prinny Mask and Baby Mao. XD)

So, I sent an e-mail to Patrick Seitz himself, asking if he voiced Gold Knuckle and if he knew who voiced Prinny Mask.

Apparently, he did the voices of both characters.

My God.

*imagines a scenario where someone calls Ragna an old man 'cause of his white hair*

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, Ragna is not an old man!"

I... Can not... Unhear it... O_o;

(By the way, we first had our strange obession on finding out character's voice actors when Naruto was released as a dub. I think. Still wondering who voices Nanako's doctor in Persona 4, hmmm...)

Oh! U-um, Hello...!

Wow, it's been a while.

Haven't been on my computer (as often) for, like, the past 2 weeks.

I'm just posting for the sake of posting.

M'ye-ah.

I'll write up more soon. Really.

Cleaning Up

April 10, 2009 at 08:42 PM - Miscellaneous

Need to reformat and clean out my hard drive. I have way too many old games hogging space and memory. D:

...My brothers and I have a bad habit of playing old games from time to time. Either out of boredom or "for teh lulz."

( A pic of my Programs List before I clean up! )
