New Devil Summoner

So that Atlus teaser that Kotaku was showing, has been in fact revealed to be a new Devil Summoner game.

I still haven't beaten the one with the FREAKING LONG TITLE. Only because I keep getting distracted by other games, comic books, movies, and getting drunk and being air humped in the face by men in boxers.

Yea, I won't go into detail but enjoy the possible visuals.


Games! ZOMG!

Um... Soul Caliber IV rules. At least my 20 minutes of it was a fantastic taste for lunch.

Hilde, I love you.


I've mentioned video games scarecly, kind of misleading with the whole 'gamer girl' bit. I'll go in depth later today with my opinions of good games, what I look forward to, and what I dont' really care for.

:) Stay tuned! (Eric lawlz)

Let's talk about life for awhile

It's funny, that thing called 'Life'. Always tossing things into the mix that you may either be not prepared for, or things that aren't much at all. When life is boring you want something exciting, when it gets exciting, suddenly it's too much.

My life isn't dreadfully exciting, I mean I'm gamer right? I put notices in my EnV telling me when games are released. Obviously I have time on my hands. But, I read enough comics, see enough movies, read enough stories that I'll probably always feel like I could be doing more, that there will always be something missing.

It can't really be helped, it's just a part of the journey, but if we only have one, that we know of, shouldn't we just do whatever makes us happy? And if so, why is it that oftentimes, that decision of choosing your happiness over something else, usually means someone will get hurt.

It's a tricky thing. I would give my life, in a minute, to protect my friends from anything and everything. Friends, family, anyone that's in trouble, I want to help them, even if it means sacrificing something that I have or need. That's just the kind of person I am, but, every so often I reach my limit of happiness, and I can no longer take care of anyone else, and I need a break. It's those points that I regret the most, because when I choose myself, I am no longer helping everyone else. When I choose my happiness I have to let someone go.

It makes me feel selfish, but at the same time, sometimes you HAVE to be selfish. I certainly don't have the funds, or the resources to do all the things I want to do to help the people I love, and there comes a time where I have to take care of myself. Because how do I have the right to help anyone, if I can't help myself?

That being said, why is it so hard to put your foot forward and just go. My heavy heart is an anchor holding me in place. It's really not complicated, but I put my heart with everyone I meet. Even if it's just a little while. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and I look forward to friendships with much hope and excitement of things to come. But then, when it crosses that boundary into relationships, that's when they throw the friendship away. The very foundation that created the relationship is now gone. "I can't be your friend anymore". I never quite understood that.

You think I'm an emotionless robot, but you don't realize how fragile and devastated I am to have to make the decisions I make. I may seem cruel to everyone looking outside in, but I will sacrifice myself in order to let you hate me, if that's what it takes for you to move on.

And so this becomes the words I'll never say. And I will stand stalwart, because you do what has to be done.

"The hardest thing in this world, is to live in it."


Oooh how I love competition...

If you are not aware there is a game coming entitled Mortal Kombat vs DC. This game was actually really awesome until they confirmed, with good reason, that the DC characters will NOT be having fatalities. I can see why, but at the same time, it would have been awesome. There are, however, some other cool features.

But that is not what this is about, however long I could go on about it. This is about the revival of Marvel vs. Capcom. Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes! As confirmed in the last 11 words on this page.

I freaking love Marvel vs. Capcom, and with this news may play some tonight! On Dreamcast of course since I don't have the $60 PS2 version.

Also, in comic book news, say goodbye to Batman.


Movie Ratings vs Game Ratings

Here is something to read. I was contemplating the same thing the other day.

If you are too lazy to click the link, it is about movie ratings, specifically The Dark Knight movie, in comparison to video games like Condemned.

Although I loved The Dark Knight, I was really disappointed to see them advertising it children via toys and what not. Mostly because this isn't your typical Batman. This isn't the same crappy Batman they see on their Saturday mornings with the Rastafarian Joker. This is a darker, harsher, more serious Gotham and Batman than what we got to see when we were growing up.

Times change I suppose.

Movies I'm looking forward too...

The Spirit- 2009, based off of a graphic novel by the infamous Will Eisner.
Scarlett Johansson /drool.

Official Website

Watchmen- 2009, based off a brilliant graphic novel by Alan Moore.

See you space cowboy...

And yet again, another good animated series is being transformed into a live action movie. If Dragon Ball is any indication of the level of quality we'll be seeing, I am not prepared for the Cowboy Bebop adaptation.

It's not that it's a bad idea, in fact, Cowboy Bebop has a wonderful story line. It's just, usually, Hollywood picks up something that has fans, and they make a movie out of it. They don't take the time to appreciate why the fans like it, and in the end, all we get is a crap movie that creates new fans that "only like the movie".

It's happened.

In some cases, they do what they can, and it turns out pretty good. I won't lie, I enjoyed the Silent Hill movie. The story was lost a little but, I appreciated the fact that the development team had to play the game, in order to really see what the game visually had to offer, and I loved the soundtrack, because I listen to all the Silent Hill soundtracks all the time.

I'm very creepy like that.

Speaking of movies, comic book movies are coming out the wazoo. In some cases this is very exciting, I personally enjoyed The Dark Knight, Iron Man, and Hellboy 2, to name a few. However, there will always be a bitter taste left in my mouth after the atrocious adaptation of X-Men to the live action screen. I'm hoping Ryan Reynolds can curve my opinion as his role of Deadpool. I'm hoping his wacky personality fits well with Deadpool's grasp of reality. The man playing Gambit isn't a bad casting call either. Speaking of X-Men! Magik returns in December for the "Inferno II" storyline. I'm interested to see where this goes since I like Colossus, not a fan of Kitty Pride though. You KNOW they'll be involved.

Wolverine and the X-Men is another animated series coming soon as well, and too be honest, I was a little skeptical at first. But after seeing this trailer, I have decided I will watch this...Oh yes:


Jack Thompson talks to Jace Hall

From Crackle: Jace Hall, Ep 8: Video Game Violence & HOT CHICKS!

I only really care about the first few minutes honestly.

Speaking of Atlus...

This was exciting news for me.

It would be nice if it was a remake of some of the previous SMT games that were never released in the US. However, I usually appreciate most Atlus games, so who knows!

I'm just going to keep my eyes on http://new-moon.jp.


As far as you're concerned, my name is Askinya.

Yes, it's a false name. Though, beginning with a lie is never the most effective way to start off a relationship, I feel it's better in the end this way.

I'll start off with informing you that yes, I am a girl, and yes, I play video games. Before you ask, no, I don't play 'casual' games, I actually like playing ALL games (except sports games, unless it's NFL Blitz for Sega)

Ya rly.

What kind of games do I like?

  • Fighting
  • RPG
  • Action/Adventure
  • Strategy/Tactical
  • Puzzle
  • Survival Horror
  • FPS
Just about everything but sports games. Because I think that if I'm going to play the sport, I'm going to play the sport, in real life.

Yes I have played MMO's but I'm going to specify, right now, that they are in no way a huge part of my life. I find them boring and repetitive and only really like the aspect of creating my own character, other than that the moment I have to plan my life around a MMO, is the moment I no longer feel like playing. I have enough chores in my life, don't need to make gaming one of them.

Being a girl, I will also blog about random things that come to mind about life and relationships.

To clarify, this blog will consist of me posting fun tidbits of information I find and or like, screaming like a fangirl over Atlus, KOEI, or other announcements, or just throwing out my opinion about things going on in the Game Industry.

So that is what this will be. You are more then welcome to enjoy this blogging process with me!

  1. Don't ask me about what I do.
  2. Don't ask me about who I am.
Nothing personal, just not interested :)
