And now, MEME! She hit me up with Castlevania, Saiyuki and Utena, so~

I've just been incredibly lazy as of late XD; Weeks off, why are you so oft interrupted by me getting ill? McDonalds, why can I not quit ye.

I babysat mom and dad's kitty for the week to make sure that, when I take care of her in June, things will go okay. Thus far, they seem to be. Harley's a sweetheart and though she TALKS ALL THE TIME (sample sentence: "Raow. Raow. Nrrraow. Nao. rrraow? Erraow. Mrrow*squeakyawn*aow. Mrrrp? Mrrwrrrp? Mrrrpt. Mrrrptaow. Ngao. Ngaaaow. Mkngaow? Mnaow. Mreh-aow-aow. Mrrbrrbt. Prrwrtt!" and this was transcribed over a minute or so XD) I adore her. XD She doesn't do horribe things aorund the litterbox and though she is kind of a dorkus I've vastly enjoyed having her afoot ^^ Right now she is questioning my hygiene by washing my left hand when I am trying to pat her. I dunno man XD

What else. Kyl is back online and I am overjoyed? XD

hamster balls, 2D gaming, other stupid! )

Yeah, at a loss of a better title so let's be the DC Tribute Band!

I haven't put a big nerdy informal fandom-y essay up in a while (I'm still working at the meme post, don't worry ^^) so I figured hey, why not.

Hokay. So. Here's de erfno no no no wrong introductory sentence. *donk* Most people are probably familiar with Super Castlevania 4, even if they haven't played it. Released in 1991, ostensibly the fourth game in the series (it's actually the seventh released game), oddly marketed as a sequel to the original Castlevania though in actuality it's a re-imagining of that game.

Weirdness 1: The English opening title crawl makes it seem as if Simon's been around for 100 years on account of some seriously funny wording. This isn't present in the Japanese one. There are other differences as well - you can find a list of them on Mr P's site, or here. But anyhow! No, Simon isn't 100 years old (we think XD) in Super Castlevania IV; if he were that'd put the game in 1791 and then we'd have Richter and Simon squabbling over the map trying to work out how best to proceed and Simon calling Richter a young rapscallion1 and Richter snickering at that and then you'd have a large Belmont squabble that lasted the whole quest and no one wants that.

Ahem. Srs tiem nao. I promise.

THAR BE SPOILERS HYARR for SCV4, CV2 and 3, and CoD among other games. So yeah.

no one likes having to deal with being knocked off floating platforms :P )

So it looks like the new DS Castlevania has a badass fighting femme protag. Unto this is say MWOO HAA HAA HAA YEAH BABY. I wish Shanoa has a whole shirt but I suspect there'll be significance to her tattoos or something so I'll leave off my 'but - backstab - dang' concerns for the time being. besides she looks speedy enough to avopid back attacks nine times out of ten, so. :3

I suspect there'll be some whining from ninnyhammers (when is there ever not) but I'll file that where it belongs. (FOR ME TO POOP ON!) Funnily enough, despite the retconning of Sonia (I'm sorry, Iga, but women did whip ass in historical contexts - Fa MuLan, the Celts, Anne Bonney and Mary Read, Grainne O'Malley...), Castlevania has a much better record of dealing with tough women than do a lot of games that come from the 'enlightened west' - Japan's no utopia of tolerance and equality by a long shot, but they at least realise that women (a) can kick ass, and (b) do have sex drives.

But anyway.

WARNING AHEAD OF TIME: if some snot-nosed little dimbulb decides it'd be oh-so-clever to get into accusations of misandry and shit up in my comments, I will take great pleasure in publically dressing 'em down and revealing them to be goddamned fools. I've explained MANY TIMES what I think of this society's crappy attitude toward women and men at length and if people are too cretinous to comprehend that I am fullstop anti-bigotry, they should GTFO. I do not suffer fools.

Okay. Now that that's done with on with the lunacy. CASTLEVANIA WOMEN wooo yeah. Here be spoilers. Proceed if ye nom nom vampires )
