ATTN people on my PS3 friends list thingie who haven't logged in in months: GUYS YOU REALLY NEED TO because the update makes your background all sparkly ^_____^

Also, it's October which has now become my favorite month of the year except December and some of November. But anyway, all this month I'll be playing SPOOKY-THEMED GAMES like Baroque, Grimgrimoire, and of course Castlevania games. But it's not just vaguely Halloween-ish games that make this month fun, oh no. Girls dressing up goth-y and Halloween cosplay are two of my faaavorite things~

Plus, it's the only goddamn time of the year that New England is even remotely nice, weather-wise.

P.S. I've added The entire cast of FFV to my Twitter and nothing is more amusing than having Exdeath post things like "DIE~~~~~~~~!" randomly.

So, I think Halloween is now officially my favorite holiday. I mean, Christmas kind of becomes meaningless when you can afford to buy video games pretty much whenever you want to anyway, but it still remains an excellent occasion to receive Legos. Halloween, on the other hand, is a convenient excuse not only for girls to dress slutty, but also to play Castlevania games all day and eat nothing but candy. Santa's going to have to step things up if he's going to compete with that.

I actually don't have much of anything else to say besides that. Obviously I've been playing the newest DS Castlevania game, I just beat Shining Force II on the VC, and I have begun to play Baroque for Wii, which I picked up a couple of weeks ago on the cheap. I literally have no idea what is going on in Baroque so far, but I kind of like it like that. Also, [livejournal.com profile] krile won our game of Dokapon Kingdom and married the princess, who was more than willing. I think that pretty much cements the game in the realm of awesome, as if it wasn't already.

I shall, however, share my favorite internet secret: the amazon.com Video Game Deal of the Day. Basically, every day Amazon picks some game and sells it for a ridiculously low sum of money, even lower than it would go if it were a Greatest Hits game. They also sometimes have peripherals on sale, too.

I've picked up quite a few games using this, which theoretically defeats the purpose of saving money if you're going to end up spending more of it anyway... but whatever. I've been using this RSS feed to easily check what the deal of the day is, but now it seem to be kind of stuck on October 30th. Maybe they died on Halloween. Uh, anyway, there are probably other RSS feeds out there, or you could just check the actual link to Amazon every day. I've seen games that sell for $50 get cut down to half price or even more, and portable games go for less than $15 when they're normally $30-40. I figured it was my duty to be an enabler to all my video game addict friends out there, you can thank me later~ (after they shut off your electricity)

It's Castlevania time~!






Best. Preorder Bonus. Ever.

Yes, you're looking at Simon Belmont in 8-bit Simon's Quest form walking through "Stage 03" of the original Castlevania, and that is actually Stage 01 depicted there. BUT WHO CARES, THIS IS SO AWESOME.

Apparently there's a couple of different ones you can get, but I ♥ Simon's Quest so this just made my day.

Plus, you know, finally getting Rondo of Blood released outside of Japan and all. Between this, FFT, and the Star Ocean remakes on the horizon, it is a very good time to be a PSP owner ;D

Now, to unlock Symphony of the Night~ *Bloody Tears begins to play in the background*

Muahahaha~

Halloween-chan hopes everyone has a happy Halloween and Día de los Muertos!



(God, please let us have more Trick-or-Treaters. What am I going to do with all this candy?)

Also Batty rocks out to Castlevania music and scares small children.

I spent two hours last week stealing from a boss in Xenosaga Episode II in order to get my "perfect save". I wonder if I'll ever look back on my life and think of how I wasted it doing these things..... naaah. I should carry around memory cards in my wallet to show off my perfect saves like other people show off grandchildren.

In the Halloween spirit of things I've been playing Castlevania: Curse of Darkness recently. It's a lot like Lament of Innocence, but without whips. Actually, it's eerily similar to Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, but with more breakable candles. You know, forging weapons and gathering materials and having summoned creatures do your laundry for you. But, anyway, it's entertaining and fun and Michiru Yamane's soundtrack is again awesome, so I am content. Did I mention I got this game LAST CHRISTMAS but I'm only now playing it? Yeah.

I've also gone from leveling post-game in Disgaea 2 to... leveling post-game in Makai Kingdom, for some odd reason. I don't know why! Maybe because I started playing it almost a year ago, and this time of year somehow reminds me of Makai Kingdom. I'm basically getting all the bonus characters now and trying to remember which items are the ultra-rare ones to look out for because I forget. I do have the strategy guide but.. it's all the way on the other side of the room =( (also the FAQs for this game are not so great)

Also, I do things besides play games! I need to get the last things together for my Halloween costume. I probably won't do much with it besides confuse neighborhood children, but still. Hint: my weapons are NES Zapper light guns.

(Oh wait, crap, that has to do with games too. Dammit)

OKAY WHAT
