I don't know who is reading, but I'm blessed that you are. I never thought anyone who bother to read it, and all my other blogs have failed miserably, so I vow to do whatever I can to keep this going and to make it all pretty interesting. Plus, it's really fun. To all I've had the chance to comment to, thanks for the comments and the advice. Okay, enough with the ego-centric posting. I'll get back to work now.

OMFG, YAY! Nobuo Uematsu

Posted by dandycandy on May 24, 2006

I checked the paper today (the Wednesday edition of the Red Eye for all you Chicagoans out there – all two of you), and I saw an ad for Tower Records.  It turns out that this Friday, May 26, from 7pm-9pm, famed Final Fantasy Composer Nobuo Uematsu will be there to sign autographs!  Isn't that awesome!  He is one of my favorite composers, and the music of Final Fantasy VI remains in my heart, years after its release.  If you are a huge Uematsu fan and you'd love to meet him, you wouldn't want to miss this.  I'm trying to figure out if I can go (i have a date with the fiance – online), but if you have a chance, go.  Beyond the characters, the most memorable part of the Final Fantasy series is the music.

A Disgaea Anime has been announced!

I passed by AnimeSuki, and I found out that there's an anime based on the hilariously fabulous PS2 game release a few years ago!  I loved this RPG to death, and hear there is an anime out there with my favorite characters (Etna is my love) is awesome!  Geneon has licensed it for release in the US, and I hope they use the original English voices from the game, because even though I bet the Japanese voices rock too, the English class, especially Etna, made me laugh really really hard!

Scream it loud, I'm goofy and proud….OMFG, YAY!! Best news I've heard all day!

crispy gaming – Persona 3

Posted by dandycandy on May 18, 2006

OMFG, YAY! Persona 3!

I'm travelling around youtube, I have no idea what brought me to search for persona stuff, but I stumbled upon this trailer of Persona 3 for the PS2.  I love the Persona series, and I'm still miffed that they ported Persona 2: Eternal Punishment to the PSOne, but not Innocent Sin (it would have made a lot of plot points much easier to understand).  But from what I've heard, Atlus had this game at their booth at E3, and it's coming to the States.  I can't wait!!  A lot of gaming magazines have dissed all the Persona games as well as the Megami Tensei (Digital Devil Saga) games, but I think Persona is an ingenious series.  Not only does it take place in the present day, a rarity with RPGs because it's either in the past or the future, not to mention, hot damn, it's got some serious fashion sense.  The uniforms are so cool, anyone who cosplays in them with be glomped incessantly.  Plus, the guys are looking pretty hot!  Hard to do, since Persona 2 heroes Katsuya and Tatsuya still give me pretty good dreams.  (and before your Yaoi mavens decide to investigate, they are brothers.  and if that doesn't stop you, all I can say is ewww).  I don't know much about the game since the almost 18 minute trailer (which was something to salivate over, lemme tell you) was in Japanese, but it looks pretty surreal and much more beautiful than all of it's predecessors (there have been Shin Megami Tensei games on the PS2, but the Persona games have yet to make it to the waning system).  It looks like it's going to be a more decided disturbing game as well.  I can't wait.

As soon as release info is brought to light, I will post it, too.  For now, here are a few pictures I got from the trailer.  Enjoy.

I don't know who he is...but that's hot

Another cutie...thank you, Atlus!

A really cute girl...

She is one tough woman.

Edit: And I got this article from IGN! SWEEET dandy candy!
