My sources say that writing something outside the subject of my NaNoWriMo project still counts towards my monthly goal, and there are some things that need to be said about this week’s episode of Once Upon a Time. Grievances to be aired, nits to be bloody picked and so on. I realize, having said this myself before, that UOaT is not a haven for amazing writing or storytelling. There are some bright spots, don’t get me wrong, but for the most part the scripts are pretty lazy. Not to mention the CG. I’ve seen better effects in low budget 80s movies. Oh yes, spoilers.
Really, this is less of a post and more of an excuse for me to relate the most hilariously awful gaming experience of my life. Its been forever since I wrote anything (even for the Starcraft Diaries, though I have TONS of material) so I'm hoping to get the brain juices flowing once more. Alrighty. So, there's a group that meets every other Saturday at my preferred game store to play Pathfinder. I love me some Pathfinder, so I decided to join one of the open tables.
Apparently there's a new God of War game coming out, and I want to talk about that. But I'm trying to develop my thoughts somewhere beyond "... really?" so I'm killing some time. We've all experienced these moments - the ones where you want to bang your head against the keyboard, throw your controller against the wall, and scream until your roommates threaten violence. The cool thing about rage quit moments is that we all have different ones. Something that was incredibly frustrating for me might have taken someone else no time at all.
This isn't the first time I've run at the mouth about Final Fantasy XIII, and my opinions weren't exactly favorable. I stand by what I said, and to this day will probably never finish it even though I stopped mere moments away from the final boss. The battle system, as visually frenetic as it was, bored me to tears. I miss the days when you had to spend hours excavating the secrets in a labyrinthine Final Fantasy system.
