Another game for me to play!

[personal profile] dragovianknight linked to KnightFight today, and it looked like so much fun that I've signed up for an account. Lookie look, my first mission went well!

An evil duke is terrorising his people. You decide to set them free of his evil rule! Your mission was very successful. You received 108 gold as a reward from the liberated farmers and merchants!

You have been credited with 108 gold. On your mission you were also able to gain 2 experience points and your alignment has shifted 1 points towards the good side!

Not bad for ten minutes' work! Two more EXP points to the next level.

I may have done something incredibly cheesy/daft with my username, though. "Anria" was already taken, and somehow "almighty_frog" just didn't seem to cut it as the name of a Knight. On Friday I picked up a copy of Anna Karenina from Waterstones and I've been reading it ever since, so it was on my desk beside the computer when I registered. (Thus far it is bloody good, by the way.)

So can you guess what I named my Knight, then?

Yup, "Anria Karenina". :D

(Hey, for 7:15am, I think that was pretty imaginative! Or at least pretty punny, not sure which. Or which is better/worse.)

In other news: I am attempting to write my remaining two fics for [community profile] areyougame, but I've had a few life crises and a return of the dreaded exhaustion (the doctor gave me pills for this! ::shakes fist::) so I've not really got much further than before. :/ I'm trying to force it through, but the tiredness makes it difficult to concentrate and my job is pretty demanding on the "needs attention" scale, so it drains me a lot.

In an attempt to keep to a semi-normal sleeping pattern, though, I've been replaying KH2. It's entertaining and doesn't require much brain power since all I have to do is button-mash. Ooh, look, a beneficial side effect of KH2's designers' laziness!

Edit to fix grammerz.

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Diddley diddley~
There they are all standing in a row
Bom bom bom~
Big ones, small ones
Some as big as your head
Give 'em a twist
A flick of the wrist
That's what the showman said

I'm trying to figure out how to customise the layout of this thing without either tedious hexadecimal code amendments or saying "screw it" and nabbing a free layout meant for lj. Eh, I'll try again in the morning.

ANYWAY. In other news, I have now seen Advent Children: Complete. You know, that remake of Advent Children, since someone in Squenix actually noticed that its plot made no sense. (Although I guess that's giving them a lot of credit - personally, I'd subscribe to the theory that they decided it wasn't pretty enough for Blu-Ray, and since Nomura had thought up some more fight scenes/gratuitous shots of Tifa's boobs they decided to give it a shot.)

However. Despite my well-honed cynicism, Advent Children Complete actually manages to make things make sense. It even explains what the fuck the geostigma was about and how it was connected to Sephiroth, instead of expecting you to psychically know!

Plus they worked out how to make people bloody and dirty, which makes me happy because Cloud actually looks injured when he is injured! Although his top still suffers from the magical ability to mend itself. His fight with Sephiroth is also much less of an anti-climax because they extended it and made it look more like, I dunno, Sephiroth is actually difficult to beat.

And there's more ZACK. Having now played Crisis Core, I heartily approve of this. Zack is AWESOME. Screw resurrecting Aeris, I wanna ressurect Zack. And then set Yuffie on him, because I'm one of those freaks who actually like her.

Will ramble more later.
