Speaking of... I know a lot of you are into geek culture so I felt like I can go on this rant about what game I'm currently playing and the comics I just bought today. So that's what today's entry is about! If you're not into video games & comics, run away- far away.
So I know this game is super old and I know everyone is mainly obsessed with the 7th one but I'm a huge fan of FFIX. It's the only Final Fantasy I have ever actually beaten and pretty thoroughly too. I'm a fan of RPGs and although it's fun to do real time strategy fights, I'm not always the best at those so I enjoy turn base fights.
One of the reasons why I love this game so much is the characters and the message it spreads. Yes, it is cheesy and more "cartoony" compared to the other ones but I'm a chick so I like all that shit. It's a story about doing what you think is right, going against the odds, staying true to yourself, and finding love in others you'd least expect to. It's about over coming fears, working as a team, and finding your place in the world. Imagine if everyone had this mind set?
Princess Garnet is pretty rad. I totally have a video game girl crush on her. I like to call her Dagger though because it's more bad ass. The 2nd time I played this game (I think is this is my 4th?) I changed all the names to random stuff but generally I like to keep it the way the story goes. I don't do much cosplaying ever, simply because it's too god damn expensive and I'm not some sort of magical tailor but I think I'd like to try to do a Dagger cosplay some day. I think I could pull it off. But please don't ask me to sing.
Steiner annoys the hell out of me most of the time but I guess I get his deal. Actually, I sort of feel sorry for him. He dedicates his entire life to this ideal he thinks has so much honor and it turns out to be all bullshit. That sucks pretty hard. Plus, I keep wanting to call him Sturm thanks to the Dragonlance Chronicles. I like Sturm a lot more but that's a story for another time.
The photo to the left here is one of my favorite scenes in the game. I know that sounds so silly considering how many other things go on in this game but I just think Moogles and their obsession with kupo nuts are so adorable. Why can't they be real? Seriously. I'd be a crazy Moogle lady.
I'll talk about comics tomorrow!
