    Music: Particularly variants of the Punk genre, I honestly think right now that Folk Punk might be my favorite. Check out Andrew Jackson Jihad and The Front Bottoms to see what I mean by that.

    Movies: Not a huge movie guy, honestly. I enjoy a good Marvel superhero movie every now and then, though.

    TV: To be honest, I'm probably not nearly as big on anime as the rest of the users of this site are, but it's mostly because I'm completely lost when it comes to finding good ones to watch. My favorites are Toradora!, Sora no Otoshimono, Haganai and High School DxD (not just for the boobs, I swear.) As far as other TV goes, I don't watch much of it.

    Books: My absolute favorite book of all time is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, followed closely by its sequels. I also really enjoy the Harry Potter series, the Inheritance cycle, the Percy Jackson books (even though I know I'm too old for them,) and a few other stand-alone titles like "Looking For Alaska" and "It's Kind of a Funny Story". A lot of young adult fiction, I know.

    Games: I love games. I have favorites from all sorts of different genres. I'm particularly fond of Nintendo titles. My favorite game of all time is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. After that it's the Paper Mario games, the Ace Attorney series, Tales of Symphonia, and then a bunch of seemingly random games. I could also call Bastion, Dust: An Elysian Tale, Terraria, Persona 4, Pokemon Red/Blue and Gold/Silver, Super Mario Galaxy, Ghost Trick, Dark Souls, and the Rune Factory games some of my favorite titles.

    I also like VNs, obviously, with my favorites being Katawa Shoujo and Tsukihime.

    Oh, and MTG. I like MTG a lot.

  1. Happy Birthday, me.

  2. Ah, cool, the first post I post on these boards after being away for literal months is immediately met with someone making fun of me. Ah well, whatever. Tsukihime is actually fascinating in its structure and the points of view it forces you to look through are what makes that VN interesting. the whole point of the VN was to be filled with things that you hate and that suck. But I digress. I fully disagree with you about the story not being good. It's not a fact that Nasu is not a good writer. It is an opinion, and I disagree strongly, which is why I find UBW to be such a good show. The wor
  3. Unlimited Blade Works is my favorite, but I think Heaven's Feel is probably a better written route. I just found UBW more personally relatable. I actually didn't dislike Shirou too much, aside from his occasional chauvinism that all VN protagonists seem to suffer from. "I helped you because you're a girl! Not because I would help any human being that was in danger! It's because you were born without a penis!" I hate that line of logic. And it's worse in Shirou's case because until a very specific point in the story, he isn't actually helpful in the least; his belief that he can somehow pr
  4. I live on the East Coast of the US. I used to live on the West Coast, though.
  5. Here's some lyrics I wrote recently that people seemed to like. The song is called Shallow Water.
  6. Oh my god, thank you so much, translation team. I've been waiting for this for so long (just like everyone else) and had almost given up hope. Miyako is probably my favorite female heroine in any VN I've played so far, and I'm so happy to finally get a chance to see her route through to the end. Thank you guys so much. Seriously, thank you.
  7. It seems reasonable to say, honestly. They're allowed to have whatever views on it that they want. If that's their take on the situation, that's fine. People can choose to listen to their advice or not. That doesn't mean I think fan-translators should stop, though. But if there is a way to make it happen legally (which there more often then not isn't. I'm probably never going to get a legal English version of Ace Attorney Investigations 2) then by all means, pursue that route first. But keep doing it, even if legal avenues seem closed off to you. There's a whole community of people that lo
  8. I guess I should mention that Tsukihime has "Good End"s that you can go back to after getting the True Ends for every route, and that almost all of them really lessen the impact of the True Ends. For example.
  9. Yeah, I second this opinion. Remember 11's ending is bad to the point of actually ruining the rest of the game for me. It's so unsatisfying.
  10. I have a hard time when the length seems overwhelming, though if it's good enough, that won't make me drop it. Tsukihime is incredibly long, but I played through every route and savored every single moment of it. Kamidori Alchemy Meister, on the other hand, is frustratingly long with a meaningless story tacked onto a pile of H-scenes and gameplay that is only fun for the first quarter of the game. I might pick it back up someday, but for now, it's dropped.
  11. None have changed my life nearly as deeply as they have changed yours, though some of them have certainly changed my perspective. The change in perspective has likely led to me making somewhat different decisions than I would have otherwise, and has actually led me to make a friend or two, too. For example, playing Phoenix Wright for the first time gave me a whole new outlook on what video games could be; up to that point I had played primarily JRPGs and platformers. I have since played many different games and looked for deeper meanings from them than I ever got out of (most) of those oth
  12. "I will play with all I've got. With all my love, to this fucking world."

  13. I don't know, I just started watching Fate/Stay Night and it's pretty enjoyable. I'm not exactly well-versed when it comes to anime, though, so maybe I'm just wrong.
  14. I write a lot. Here's another poem; this one's about a breakup. It's a generic topic, I know, but stuff happens and it's hard to get over so I write about it.
