♥ /makes it forever and always
ztarman331 asked: TAG. YOU’RE IT. The rules are to state 5 random facts about yourself. Then, go to ten favourite blogs and tell them that they are it.
1. I’ve been actively trying to be more constructive with expressing my feelings for a while now, and I think it’s working
2. I have a freckle on my belly that I’m really self-conscious of
3. caffeine actually doesn’t wake me up in the morning. it relaxes me enough to be okay with being away, haha
4. it seriously bothers me to be on a desktop computer that doesn’t have two monitors
5. despite my job, I hate taking cabs :’D
I like it! (I like corests, yes, I should wear one soon for funsies. Maybe I’ll do it tomorrow.) Very pretty <3 and pocketwatches just make it better. (I shall have to finish a decent drawing of my Steampunk take on Karel. He has a pocketwatch.)
osagkjfgakjfgakj YES yes yes I want this drawing yes
did I mention yes (also thank you!!)

thanks!! I hope maybe some people buy some ∩( ・ω・)∩
ztarman331 asked: 1 2 3 4 5 6 10 13 16 20 21 23 24 29
1: Do you try to stay away from walkthroughs? - normally yes, unless I know the game has a lot of hidden content (see: the chests you couldn’t open in FFXII), in which case I’ll just find out what I need to do/not do to unlock it
2: Company you’re always loyal to? - lol I am loyal to nothing. if Clover was still a thing, though, I think I might be there because of Okami
3: Best game you’ve ever played? - see, I want to say Fire Emblem (7) here, but… Okami has the most replays out of everything I own. It’s a freaking excellent game that’s made me cry. Katamari Damacy is good too on a more casual level.
4: Worst game you’ve ever played? - Metal Gear Solid 2. I’m terrible at it, it sets off my anxiety, and I don’t want to discount the merit of it as a game, but personally, we were a horrible match as game and player. I liked it less than, even, say, shit like Star Wars Podracing for N64 which was an objectively terrible game.
5: A popular series/game you just can’t get into no matter how much you try? - Final Fantasy games aside from X, XII, IX a little (yes, I’m saying I didn’t like VII. I’m so sorry)… also Kingdom Hearts beyond 1 and 2. Squenix is just not a company I’ve been enjoying the productions of.
6: A game that’s changed you the most? - FE7 has had the most lasting impact on me as a person, I think. That’s mostly due to the fact that, I mean, fuck, like Karel is almost an aspect of my personality at this point. It’s also gotten me in with pretty much my core friends group.
10: A game you’ve completely given up on? - again, MGS2. I was all I WILL PLAY THIS!!!! and then….no
13: A game you were the most excited for when it wasn’t released yet? - hmg… I usually don’t get too excited for games pre-release, but I’m pretty freaking stoked for P4Golden (I preordered it, man. that’s a big deal haha). I also remember being pretty excited about Zelda Twilight Princess. I think my lack of excitement, though, is mostly due to A) not having a lot of current systems (my newest thing is a 3DS - no 360, no PS3) and B) not being able to afford most games on drop day ^^’
16: Character you’ve hated most? From what game? - Damn… I do not usually hate characters, so it’s kinda weird. I also don’t play a lot of games that have the archetypes I don’t like (weak, whiny characters who never develop or else loud and obnoxious characters in a game with voice acting), so… hmg. like as a kiddo I had some Rinoa hate? but… I got over it because pretty.
20: What was the first video game you ever played? - Dear god. Um. I want to say the GBA Spyro game? Yeah, that’s probably it. I’m horrible at above-view action games, so… I did not like that game very much.
21: How old were you when you first played a video game? - I think I played Spyro for PS2 at a friend’s house…maybe when I was 10 or 11?
23: Biggest disappointment you’ve had in gaming? - Gonna be honest, it’s less of a “this game” thing and more of a community thing in that because I can’t get games for a long, long-ass time after they release, it’s always really disappointing to finally get it, and just sit on the tail end of fandom watching everyone be just completely over it.
24: Casual, Hardcore, or in the middle? - oh god, super casual. I game maybe…solidly? a few times a month. I am barely a gamer at this point because of time allocation. I’d rather be talking to people online, and I’m incredibad at multitasting without feeling like I’m giving my friends a slight.
29: Which is more important, gameplay or story? - I’ll put it this way: story is important, but if I really want a good or coherent story, I’ll pick up a book or watch a movie. If I’m too frustrated by the gameplay to get to the story, you’ve failed as a designer. I’ll put up with a minor plothole or a handwaving “it’s magic” explanation or leaning on the 4th wall, but I will not put up with gameplay that makes me want to tear my hair out. Basically, if your battle system cannot be picked up within about five-ten minutes, I’m out. I don’t care how good your storyline is. And if I’m sitting there having to ~react~ to everything (hello Golden Sun 3)… get out.
I should really come to one of your livestreams sometime. This looks amazing!
YES come come come!! I’m trying to announce them further in advance now as opposed to just “LIVESTREAMING NOW” to give people a chance haha
What the hell do you mean “trying?”
haha it’s just my art tag XD I didn’t want just “art” because then it would be subject to the whole ~get this out of the tag~ drama, so I was all hell with it- XD
Whoa this looks amazing Ky! (And now I think I have developed an irrational fear of Jigglypuff)
this is why I’ve been doing livestreams- to try to push myself and make myself improve because I want to make other people happy ♥
