Random Favourites


I'm sure a lot of people are gonna say Mega Man 9.  And yeah, that was one of the best modern-retro games that perfectly captured the feeling of the NES Mega Man games.

Shovel Knight has to be my favorite, though. 
There are actually a lot of pop culture quotes and references I make when I'm at work.  It's always funny to see people's reactions, especially when they have no idea what I'm referencing.

Whenever someone makes some sort of mistake, I'll sometimes quote Lemongrab from Adventure Time, asking people "Who did the thing?!". or threaten them with a million years in the dungeon.

A lot of my coworkers are Tolkien fans too, so we'd toss Lord of the Rings quotes back and forth.  I remember I'd always say "Touch it.  It's quite cool." like Gandalf whenever the pans were cooling, and "You shall not pass!" whenever I don't want anyone walking in the back when I mop. 
Let's talk about games that you gave up on or lost interest in, but liked after picking them up again.

When I first got Pokemon Sapphire, I stopped playing since I just couldn't beat Norman. I decided to give it another go after buying Omega Ruby.  While Hoenn is still my least favorite region, I found the game a lot more enjoyable the second time around, especially with the features they added from X and Y. 

Resident Evil was another game I just couldn't get into.  Granted I was 10 when I first played it, so survival horror games were foreign to me.  The puzzles were too frustrating, and I was pretty bad at conserving ammo.  After playing it again when I was a little older, I appreciated the games a lot more, and conservation of resources actually became my favorite thing about it.

I mentioned this before in another thread, but when I played Majora's Mask for the first time, I gave up after Woodfall Temple.  It didn't help that I was really sick at the time, so for awhile, I'd associate the game with it.  I could care less about the side-quests, too.  For me, Zelda was all about exploring and finding secret items.  Well, I caved in and bought the 3DS version, and now I'm hellbent on collecting all the masks and collecting stray fairies. 
Though The Simpsons left a bigger impact on me, Futurama was still one of my favorite shows. 

Anyway, my favorites:
Fry and the Slurm Factory
Brannigan, Begin Again
How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back
Deep South
The Problem with Popplers
Tales of Interest 1 and 2
War is the H Word
Amazon Women in the Mood
Parasites Lost
That's Lobstertainment
Roswell that Ends Well
Luck of the Fryish
Leela's Homeworld
Less Than Hero
A Taste of Freedom
The Why of Fry
Where No Fan Has Gone Before
The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings
 Jurassic Bark
The Farnsworth Parabox
The Late Phillip J Fry
A Clockwork Origin

As you can see, I havent' seen a lot of episodes from seasons 6 and 7.  But, I've been meaning to get to them.  From what I've seen, they're okay.   Though, not as good as the earlier ones. 
If there's one thing that used to annoy me about anime dubs, it was how they censored certain scenes.  But, sometimes it could actually be pretty funny with how the writers had to work their way around them. 

Most scenes that originally had alcohol are usually hilarious.  I remember an episode of Sailor Moon where Serena/Usagi accidentally drank some wine at a party and got drunk.  The dub changed it to her getting sick from drinking too much juice.

I'd talk about the 4Kids One Piece dub, but I could probably write an entire book on funny edits if I did.

It's been years since I last wrote a journal, so let me start off by talking about a few things that have been going on in my life.  Last year, I finally graduated from Nova, with honors after passing a math class that was giving me a lot of trouble.  I've been going to George Mason for a year, where I'm working towards my Bachelor's degree in Spanish.    It's a new experience for me, but I'm managing, and even made the Dean's List for both semesters.

Now, I have more than two months to relax.  And on a completely unrelated note: Today, I started my first day at Great Harvest; a bakery near my house.
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Playing: Super Street Fighter IV
