So….it’s been a while. Had family problems so yeah…onto the fun stuff.
Let me explain about myself first. If someone is in the room with me while i’m playing a game, I will often talk out loud, yell at the game, try to guess things, and say sarcastic things, and laugh often because of inside jokes. Alone…I still do some of these things, just not as much. I still talk to the game as if it was real.
Anyway…I was around Luin, and there had just been another revealed twist in the game…and that’s about all I remember other then I really wanted to save the Unicorn also. However…I sarastically said that…”Oh, next we’ll find out that Lloyd is Kratos’s son.”
My friend gave me a look at that and turned…since she had played the game before and didn’t want to say anything. I know she was laughing at me now, but at the time thought nothing of it.
“Well, they kind of have the same kind of hair style” I go, making the spikes in their hair with my hands.
Then after that it was dismissed.
Later on…before flying to the tower on the Dragons, I had seen the skit with Lloyd and his boat. I go…”Huh…I can totally see people shipping these two…” In fact…I might’ve gone for it too….but then my friend left the room and I went on DA to just see pictures of it…because I’m sure they would be cute and I’m silly like that.
Took two pictures and I was spoiled.
I just started at the computer for a few minutes…
I couldn’t believe my half-assed comment had been true. When my friend came back I just went….”Kratos is Lloyd’s dad….”
And we laughed after that and then yelled at Kratos to get on with it and tell Lloyd what was going on.
Also, btws….didn’t like Kratos at the beginning. My friend said he’d leave our party so I kept yelling at him because he would do that…and he would be snooty to Lloyd…Now I understand why and just go…aw….he wuvs his son.
So…more Tales of Symphonia talk.
When in the temple of Darkness…when you need to gather the five pieces of darkness to create Shadow…we totally talked to the little creatures.
Constant running back and forth saying…come on…come on little one…follow me.
Honestly, it was a lot of fun, even if it was constant running back to make sure they were following me all the way down to the altar to combine them to make shadow. And of course, trying to get all five pieces when they were in different areas.
That, and me and my friends decided they make a high pitch noise that written out goes: MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII (Or maybe MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE)….almost like the men who say Ni.
And for a while I couldn’t do their little voice because I had done it so often, but I think now I can again…and its fun to make as they are following me around the dungeon. Makes it seem like they are even more adorable.
They just wanna be loved!!!!!!!
Despite my love of Tales of Symphonia, I don’t really like the endings of either the first game, or the second game.
With the first…Kratos. Leaving.
I mean, really…you just found your son…he accepts you as his dad, you saved the worlds and got them to join together to stop the mana from competing, you stopped Yggdrasil…AND YOU ARE JUST GOING TO LEAVE BECAUSE YOU STILL CAN”T FORGIVE YOURSELF AND SAY THAT THE ANGELS NEED SOMEONE UP THERE WITH THEM!!!! WHY NOT YUAN!!! HE DOESN”T HAVE A SON!!! AND THEY SEEMED TO BE JUST FINE WHEN YOU WERE TRAVELLING WITH LLOYD!!! WHY DO THEY NEED YOU AGAIN? GRAH YOU SHOULD STAY WITH YOUR SON AND GO AROUND THE WORLD ON A BOAT WITH HIM AND BE A FATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BAD KRATOS! BAD! YOU NO GO! YOU STAY!
And then there is the ending to the second game. Basically Ratatosk with slowly take the mana out of things (which is what give things life). It will take thousands of years, so no one in this life time has to worry about it…but the world will become a barren planet again because all life will eventually die. Instead of working to balance the mana, no, he decides that it’s okay to just take it out…I forget why…but I was too dumbstruck by it.
YEAH. LET”S JUST LET THE PLANET DIE YEARS AND YEARS FROM NOW. IT”S OKAY.
I first met Sephiroth way before I even got into Final Fantasy VII. I met him in Kingdom Hearts.
Remember that ??? option in the coliseum later on in the game. I went…well, might as well try it.
Going in I was in awe of what was going on…because this guy was coming down from the heavens and there was epic music playing.
So right off the bat I was a little nervous, but I was up to giving it a try. I had leveled quite a bit so I was a bit cocky in what I could take down.
Then the fight started and Sephiroth basically two shot-ed, if not one shot-ed me.
I could only stare at the screen and go…omg…he killed me so fast….
Later on I came to know him as Sephiroth, but I’ll never forget the first meeting. That, and my cousin did the same exact thing too.
So…I kind of knew about FFVII and the characters. It started with a hot guy at an anime convention, and ends with my obsession of Cloud in all that he does.
Hot guy was dressed as Cloud and it was the first time I went: “Woah. Hot Guy.”
From there my friend let me watch FFVII: Advent Children. I had no idea what was going on, but it was hilarious to watch with no clue what was going on.
Especially the scene with Tifa fallen and Cloud finding her…and then him falling and then the Lifestream interlude. Me and my friend, who hadn’t seen it either were just going…WTF…and laughing our butts off.
And any part with Reno (like him getting locked out of the cabin by Cloud) was hilarious.
And when Cloud pseudo-died….I was almost in tear going OMG WHYYYYYYYY! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
But then he came back so I was happy again.
And after that we tried to watch the FFVII overview on the DVD, but that didn’t work cause we got distracted. I eventually borrowed a copy from another friend so I did go back and do my research.
And now I have my own copy and dress up as Cloudia (Cloud when he has to wear a dress to save Tifa from Don Conero. Whoot).
Otherwise known as the @I*#UI$U#()# Temple of Lightning. I don’t like this temple in either Tales of Symphonia game. This temple is mean, and doing it for the first time at like…two in the morning, is not good for the eyes.
So…why is this temple a bastard, and along with it Volt.
In fact…lets explain Volt first. SPOILER ALERT. He put Sheena’s grandpa in a coma, and kills a bunch of other people in Mizuho (Sheena’s Village of Ninjas). He kills Corrine (who is an adorable fox that travels with Sheena until this temple), and he speaks a language that is only understandable by some scholars (which, luckily, Raine is one)….and oh yeah…he likes lightning…a lot…and tries to kill Sheena with it.
And you have to get him on your side. >.>
Now lets explain the temple. They have rooms where it it’s like a slow strobe light that flashes every few seconds, and then fades in light before the next flash. Oh…and the walkway is limited and you can fall down off it and then have to start over.
Oh…and the tower puposefully makes you run through these rooms at least a dozen times…and you run to the top of the temple to release the little button thing that will change the sorcerers ring (which shoots fire/lightning/ect…depending on the last button thingy you pushed)…and there are three tiers of ‘lightning’ in the temple and its constant going up and down the tower. Oh…and if you forget to hit a certain block with a certain color (cause blocks block your way that can only be shot with ‘lightning’ away with a certain colored lightning tier)…you have to run back down and change the color to the right tier, run back..and then run back AGAIN and get the next tier…to finally get where you need to be and activate xxx thing so you can finally get to Volt. SO. MUCH. RUNNING. BACK.AND.FORTH.
And it doesn’t stop there. No…my first time I was running around and was stopped on a bridge that leads from one side of an area to the other, puzzling what to do next. It was late and me and my friends had been playing for a few hours already. So we were tired and Volt’s lightning was not helping our eyes. So, I decided what to do and then tried to move…
ONLY TO FIND OUT I COULDN’T MOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lloyd would turn a certain way if I moved him, but I couldn’t move from that spot. At a closer look I was literally IN the floor.
My words went like this: I can’t move! What the fuck I can’t move! I can’t fucking move. GOD DAMMIT! FML!!!!!!!!! Fuck. My. Life. (and then repeats of these phrases)
This pretty much woke me and my friend up and she started laughing (while my third friend snoozed on). I eventually dissolved into laughter and maybe a few tears, rolling around on the couch as my friend laughed at my misfortune. (And for those who know me, Marf was the one laughing, Shinde the one sleeping).
Eventually I rebooted from the last save point, but I’ll never forget that first time through the temple. And when I found out I had to go through it in Dawn of a New World, I was not happy. I don’t even remember it that much from the second game…I must’ve repressed the memories. I hate this temple that much.
(on a random note, I think I like gifs too much)
So…from this scene…we got a really bad dirty joke. So, if you are looking for a sexual innuendo to add to all your others…add Fight the Dragon.
So, an explanation. Richter and Emil have the hots for each other in mine and my friends minds. Richter is constantly helping Emil out even though he is supposed to be on the “bad” side. Also, just their dialogue mixed in with our crazy sleep deprived minds and the fact we hate Marta with a passion, this became a couple for us.
And…in this scene…these two are away from the group and they have to fight a dragon. And then they talk…and Richter tells Emil that his dreams are good luck…Emil says his name…and then Richter blushes….
WHAT ELSE ARE WE SUPPOSE TO THINK THEN SOMETHING ELSE IS GOING ON AND THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE “FIGHTING THE DRAGON” TOGETHER!!!
Plus…if you are reading the dialogue with that mindset, it makes it a whole lot more amusing.
(Emil when he gets back to camp)
Marta: Took you long enough.
Emil: Yeah. I got attacked by this monster.
Me: Hehe…I bet you did…*eyebrow waggle*
So….my cousin was playing my 358/2 days game, and my other cousin was questioning the difference between nobodies and heartless. So me, being the nerd I am, explained…and then realized that I don’t really understand why the nobodies want Kingdom Hearts so bad.
I mean, I get that they want hearts to become their own people or something like that. The original few became nobodies in the pursuit of finding out more about Kingdom Hearts and such. But…there is never mention of a consequence if they don’t become “sombodies”. What was wrong with how they were. Sure…they weren’t meant to exist…but people have been born on accident so they weren’t meant to exist either but they do. The nobodies were born…in a way…so…why not just stay as a “nobody” and live their life. I mean…even if they can’t reproduce or anything…so what, they could still live fulfilling lives. What…does something happen when their somebodies come back from the darkness…cause Roxas only had memory loss and went to sleep for like…100 days or something when Sora had his memories affected.
So yeah…the somebody and the nobody are still connected, but how much do they really affect each other?
And yeah…nobodies don’t have hearts so they want to get them to feel again…but for people without feelings they sure do act like they do…so I guess I understand why they do what they do in a way, while also questioning.
But…with Roxas…why did he have to join back with Sora. Sora and Roxas were both awake at the same time…and then Sora went to sleep…what, could Sora only wake up if Roxas was back with him? They were both fine and running around before so what was the difference. And, given the chance, I’m sure Sora would work with Roxas to find a way that wouldn’t put the worlds in peril to give Roxas a heart so he could be his own person. Why not go down that road. It’d be just like twins separated.
And Roxas was still there at the end of Kingdom Hearts 2…why not just separate then? Or are they past that then? I mean…I know Sora has no clue what is going on, but Riku has a kind of clue.
What happens to the nobodies Sora ‘killed’. Do they join back with their hosts when they come back from the Darkness?
WTF Kingdom Hearts…You no make sense if I think to hard about it. Yet I still love you so much.
