I got to spend three days with Jimmy for three days of fun~ ♥ We're unlocking the final boards in the original "Mario Party", (Rule: Skip/Deliberately lose games like "Paddle Battle" so you don't ruin controllers) and I played half of "Portal" and watched Jimmy beat the rest because I couldn't figure out the last puzzles for the life of me. We watched "Battle Royale" at Dave's apartment, which is probably one of my favorite movies now. <.< I gotta get my hands on the book and manga! We went to Lock-In, which is basically a place where you stay up all night to play pinball and arcade machines free of charge. (You still gotta pay to get in and for extra drinks and pizza, as well as signing up for tournaments, but still) I played and beaten "Dragon's Lair" and "Space Ace", but I only got beyond the first level in "Dragon's Lair II" before I ragequitted. Deranged Animation aside, that game is friggin' hard. :/ I got the top High Score in "Bubble Bobble II" though! Some dude praised me on my skills and said I should be in the Smash Bros. tournament. :o Apparently I was at it for so long that someone was waiting their turn. Whoops. I managed to beat the game in time though, even if I didn't get the true ending. (Fuck that, I'm raising a kingdom as a bubble-blowing dinosaur queen! Why would I want to be human again?)
I watched some guy play crappy SNES games on an emulator, which was fun. Once AVGN is done with his movie, he's got
to review the "Flintstones" games. The SNES one based off the live-action film feels reminiscent of the "Wayne's World" game, and it's so deranged in its Uncanny Valley it isn't funny. Just... look at Fred's face and the "health emoticons." wtf.
I didn't go for the Smash Bros. tournament 'cause hey, it was No-Items-Final-Destination-Only crap anyway. :/ I would've signed for the Pokemon tournament in a heartbeat, but B/W wasn't allowed (not compatible with "Pokemon Battle Revolution") and I had already moved all my best Pokemon from Diamond/Platinum/HeartGold. Aaaaaaaaugh. DDD: Those bastards used Garchomp and Legendaries, I would've wiped the floor with them with Togekiss. >( (And if we're going the Legendaries route, Shaymin will be there for the whooping too) Thankfully, the trainer without Legendaries won, and his Breloom cleaned some guy's Mewtwo's clock~ ♥ Which goes to show how awesome Breloom is. Spore/Leech Seed/Substitute/Bullet Seed doubled with Poison Heal/Toxic Orb combo, baby. 8) He had a Swampert with Jimmy's name, awwww~ ♥ There was a hilarious match where someone challenged a trainer with a Magikarp called "YOURFUCKED" and it was getting beaten up by a Shuckle. Eventually, the guy only had Magikarp (poisoned and in the yellow) left, then he forfeited the match because "I didn't want to see my baby get hurt." Awww. Crowning Moment of Heartwarming there.
When we got back to Dave's (and crashed for a while, because Lock-In wiped us both, and we had no pillows. :( ), Jimmy introduced me to "Minecraft" and I'm kind of hooked now. <.<;;; I'll have to buy the game on PC, nomnomnom. We also went to Target because I wanted to see if "Pokemon Conquest" and any G4 pony I didn't own was there, but no luck. "Pokemon Conquest" was nowhere to be found, and except for expensive playsets and a Fluttershy or two, the "My Little Pony" section was wiped clean. :( I was hoping Honeybuzz or Plumsweet would be there, but alas.
Jimmy has also sent me a .pdf of the entire "50 Shades Of
Twilight Boredom Romanticized Abuse
Grey" trilogy, so I'll likely be snarking on that later. Buwahahahaha.This post has been crossposted with Dreamwidth at http://shamanicshaymin.dreamwidth.org/27057.html. Pick your poison. Mwoiiiiiiiing~!
