Pokemon series: Difficulty increase or just a hard mode. More serious story that occurs throughout the series, with gyms being a side part of it. Also wifi should have a simulator type of battles, for people who want to bother with EVs and IVs, so that the casual battlers can have fun and the serious battlers don't be called cheaters.
RPGs in general: More ways to make characters fit into your team. Give a swordsmen a rapier for pierce damage, or make him more shield based. Give some variety. Also avoid giving dungeon treasures that obsolete what you buy. Make enemy drops actually make sense. I'd also like to see light crafting. I don't mean make it the main focus, but instead of tiering weapons by where you are in the game, tier them by what you make them out of, and allow you to enhance them through drops and treasure. Also avoiding a few cliches here and there would be nice.
Started my college psychology class yesterday, and a week from tomorrow I start school. I can't wait to explain to everyone who asks that I did nothing all summer. Oh well, nothing's really changed in that respect. My family doesn't go on vacations and I don't get out of the house. Strangely, I haven't spent the night with any of my friends all summer. Usually something like that happens at least a couple times. Oh well. Lately via facebook I've caught up with a couple of old friends (except the one that won't ever text me back). I'll be testing for my learner's permit friday and I'm a little uneasy about the whole thing. Normal people are excited about being able to drive and leave the house more, but I don't really know where I'd go and it just ends up being something that I need to do at some point.
My sister wanted to play this on my tablet. I decided to try it out myself and it was fairly interesting. One of the neat parts was the fact that you can get away with using fewer parts than normally (they sometimes require this for a star), plus crashing contraptions that you make is fun. I really appreciate that you don't have to get all the stars in one go. You always have to have the pig cross the goal, but the other star requirements only need to be fulfilled once. To correct you on something, the criteria for stars varies based on the level, it's sometimes getting a star crate or two, sometimes not using a specific part, sometimes beating a time limit, and sometimes having to carry the king pig as well. At least this is a game to have on my tablet. Android has so few good games it seems.
I bought a 3ds, and I think that'll be the last console I get for quite awhile. Wii U is a bit more than I want to spend when I'm not the most enthused by future games. I have a ton of older games I could play that would cost me a lot less.
Saw this tonight. I was pretty satisfied with it. I can't say it completely avoided the cliches of a disney movie, however, the happen with a rather unlikely hero and works pretty well. There's an immense amount of references, both visual and otherwise. Even if it didn't have those references, it still holds its own as a good movie (the cameo characters don't serve much in the way of plot). One thing I was pleasantly surprised about (aside from all the references they make) was the inclusion of an original AKB48 (very famous j-pop girl group) song for the game "Sugar Rush". The song plays in the movie but is also one of the credit songs. It was rather interesting to be in a theater and hearing j-pop. Characters had some depth for them. Don't expect some deep and intricate backstory and development, but it's a disney movie. Overall I really enjoyed it. There's room for criticism, but I'm satisfied. I would consider watching it again if any other friends of mine wanted to see it.
Haven't posted much here recently, so here's a bit that's going on:
Homework is starting to cut into my free time a bit, but luckily next year I may may only be at school for a couple of morning classes. Of course then I intend to have a job, and I'll be taking some early college classes to count for highschool credits and give me a head start. Honestly I'm looking forward to college. I'm getting kind of sick of the people at my school, so I'm looking forward to meeting new ones. In addition, my highschool classes are so dull and slow paced. Don't worry, though. I'm not getting my hopes up, especially depending on how well I can take being independent. I really can't believe I'm 17, where did my childhood go? (the answer is video games)
I have my permit but have been pretty lazy with getting practice hours. I don't have a whole lot to worry about, though. As long as I can get to the intermediate phase before I have to start the earlier mentioned job and college classes, I should be fine. I was glad to find out that the intermediate phase is cut short if you turn 18, so no matter what I'll be getting my full license around the time I turn 18. I should really be less lazy...
I'm not sure why, but lately I've been thinking about (and therefore missing) a girl I know. It's the same girl I've had a crush on for awhile, just now I know that she can't speak to me because her father won't allow her (if this is the truth of course). It'll be a year and a half presumably before I talk to her again, so of course I have thoughts like "well what if she falls in love with some guy at her school in that time" and "if only I'd confessed to her earlier, then maybe she'd also be waiting". Worrying won't get me anywhere and I can't help what happens though. Still, either I'm impatient or just miss her in general, because I keep thinking about her. The most that will happen until then is us randomly crossing paths, maybe at an event. I could confess to her then if that ever happened, but that likely wouldn't be the best idea (after all, fantasies never work).
Okay now that that wordiness is out of the way, I'll return to only speaking on IRC.
Looking good as always. If I had to give some criticism, I'd mention the lack of bows for the glasses. For that matter, there isn't much indication of an ear to begin with. I can't pinpoint what, bet the left lens seems to have some strange perspective going on. Again, good work, don't take my criticism badly.
Yesterday I got my wisdom teeth removed. Everybody told me the first days after the surgery would be really painful and my cheeks would inflate, although the later didn't happen and the pain is really minor and far from being unbearable; I guess I'm just lucky. The only downside to this is that I can't eat anything solid.
At least you don't have to have surgery on your jaw in addition to having them removed. Hopefully my mom will right things with my insurance soon so she can make an appointment with the oral surgeon. The state loves to screw us over with medical coverage. This time I don't have insurance because they wanted my mom's last paycheck from her prior job or something like that, with the deadline being before she gets it. She told someone that, and yet the system still kicked us off of medical. Either way, I can't wait for a month or two of not being able to open my jaw whatsoever. It was bad enough having to eat yogurt, applesauce, and pudding when I got my braces two weeks ago.
I'm nearing the final stretch of junior year (aka, the last year of high school that I put any effort into). I've got a four page paper and an eight page paper both due the 6th. The four page paper will be cake, but the eight page one might give me a tad bit of trouble. Honestly, I don't worry too much about it, because (not to sound cocky), even if it's not college-esque like the teacher wants, I'll probably end up with the most professional paper short of maybe my friend who has taken college English. Regarding Sociology, the college class that I've been taking, my final will be this Friday, so thankfully it will be out of the way before I need to work on my papers. There's also finals for high school, but they don't worry me too much. Classes have been fairly easy, even chemistry. Everybody's been getting pretty lazy, myself included, however we've all started to get along a bit more it seems (unless you count the 8th grade girl who thinks I'm a creep).
This summer might be interesting, although summers usually end up being a long boring period where I laze around all day. I'll see what colleges I can take a look at, and hopefully find one that'll be good for whatever major I'll decide on (somewhere in the range of computer science or IT). Maybe to keep from being too lazy, I'll do some volunteer work. At some point I'm going to look for a job (as long as I can convince my mom that my jaw surgery won't get in the way of that). Maybe I'll find a girlfriend (I laugh at the thought) to occupy some time with , since we were on the subject prior.
Come my senior year, I'll only be going to school for an hour and half each day, taking into account that I already have most credits I need and college classes each semester will make up for my electives and math. I really have no idea what I'll be doing with most of the day to myself. I plan to have a job (hopefully I'll have a car by then to transport myself), but that won't take up all the time I have. I'll probably do some hobby stuff; perhaps being in school will keep me from being too lazy to do such. I'll possibly learn a programming language, or do some art studies so that I can have skill to make something more... presentable. </blog>
