Pluto close up

Stuck here for another year!

I was going to do it over the weekend, but I completely forgot about it. I got the reminder this morning, so I was like 'oh shit, I have to make sure to do that!' What I'm talking about, of course, is renewing my livejournal account. Another year. It seems like its more expensive than it was last year. Could have sworn it was 20 dollars then and 25 now. But 5 dollars is basically nothing. So, yeah. Renewed account. I barely use the damned thing lately, but this is still my journal and, who knows, I might find a way to start my interest in this again. The odds of that are quite slim, but never say never.

I've concluded something: Virtua Fighter 5 really does 'condemn' button mashing... because I tried doing that and now my arms hurt like HELL. I'm not big on 3d fighters. Honestly. 2d all the way. But there was nothing on the PS3 that I wanted, so I had to buy something. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is friggen hard, and I'm not the best gamer in the world when it doesn't involve me being able to just power level the hell out of any situation, becoming strong enough to beat things into a pulp. Challenge be damned. I like things to be cake. That's how I skate through life. It's just the way I function...

But even in games where I CAN power level through crap like nothing there are those rare moments when my ass gets handed to me. Like in Jeanne D'Arc. I got slaughtered by this cadre of monsters. There was like 20 of them to my 8 fighters, and reinforcements just kept on coming. What the hell was I supposed to do? I was quite spiteful. So I gave up. On the plus side, the virtual console released Breath of Fire II!!! I never beat that game, either. Want to know why? Too hard.

I spend so much money on games, yet rarely end up beating them. I'm a shame to my people. Then again, I'm used to that. Now, I'm off to power level in Jeanne, watch some Golden Girls (even though I told myself I would watch something else... Sophia has power over me), and generally try and make myself content in life.
