Epicness is a foot.

Last summer, I received a notice of entitlement for EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance) telling me I would get paid £30 a week to stay in 6th Form (College basically), so I sent in the form and got no reply.
Last week I received a letter telling me there was not enough information to complete my assessment, and that once I redo the form I'll get back payments to august last year. Fuck yes.
DSi is out in a few weeks, which allows me to make use of this extra money, and take perverted pics at the next MCM. Fuck yes.
New Touhou announced: Unidentified Fantastic Object, it has space ships, better 3D, and playable Sanae. Fuck yes.
English patch for SA was released. Fuck yes.
I finished shuffle, it suddenly got awesome in the last few episodes, and the best end was obtained. Now I've started watching Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu. I've just watched ep2, and I'm fucking hooked. Fuck yes.
First Higurashi Rei ep is out, Strike Witches season 2 confirmed. Fuck yes.
In b4 something shit happens, like my HDD gets corrupted or my lappy breaks.

Edit: I actually managed to successfully inb4 something.
It seems my parents are splitting up.
Well, I guess that means I won't be going to MCM.
Fuck it, I'll probably move out early next year anyway.

/me returns.

I'm back from cornwall, it was pretty epic. There were loads of rocks and equally hard things to climb on, and it didn't rain.
Unfortunately, of the 30-odd people I saw, not one of them resembled Ana in the slightest, nor did they end sentences with ~desuwa. I guess the japanese aren't as smart as I thought.
I'll post pix of some badass rocks when they finish uploading from a really slow camera to a winME PC.

While I was there, I was faced with a lot of free time with no internets, and no big games, since I couldn't plug in my external hard drive. Good thing I had downloaded Yume Nikki and Melty Blood the day before I left.
Melty is a fighter like SF2, SWR and Mortal Combat, and the gameplay is pretty normal for a fighting game. I'll probably get more into it when I get netplay working.
The majority of my time was spent playing Yume Nikki, which, for an RPG, is a FUCKING GOOD GAME, even though it's full of randomness. It revolves around a hikikomori girl named Madotsuki, who does nothing but sleep, play NES, and write in her Dream Diary. There is basically nothing to do until she falls asleep, then she enters this trippy dream world full of random creepy shit. If the dreams reflect what her life has been like, it's understandable that she never leaves her apartment.
At first it seemed pretty boring, randomly wandering around, looking for "effects" that change her appearence and alter other things in weird ways, but after I got the bike and medamaude, I was pretty much hooked. It's strange how even though Madotsuki's only represented as a small sprite, the creator still manages to make her look moe.
After I got a shitload of effects, met a five-armed girl and a freaky white head thing, and went to mars, I eventually figured out that there would be no more effects, but I had no idea how to beat the game, good thing I had yume_nikki_010_walkthrough.rar.part. I eventually found out I had to drop everything in the lobby-type room, so I tried it, and nothing happened. I exited to the bedroom, and nothing happened. I went out to the balcony, nothing. Then I woke up, and repeated the process.
I had only just gotten over Ushio ;_;

Edit: I FINALLY figured out how to allow people without google accounts to comment. Now it's only a matter of time until ebaums floods the comments.

I'm heading over to Cornwall today, and I'll probably be back on Friday. Pix will be posted.
It'll be interesting to see how many girls have blond hair and blue eyes, and end every sentence with ~Desuwa.

I gave up on EoSD after failing so much on Remilia's second spell card, so I dusted off the old MoF and set out to 1cc it with the recently released English patch.
After a week of practice, I finally managed to do it. On easy.
Then it said I need to 1cc normal to get extra, so I closed it and facepalmed.
Pic related, it's the second most epic spell card ever.

Bitch, get out of the way!

Sorry about the lack of updates, I've been pretty busy with schoolwork (Doom) and housekeeping (Touhou).
I've been on EoSD a lot, probably because of some freaky NicoNico videos I've seen on /jp/. It's probably gonna be the first game I 1cc Normal on, just because you can't face the final boss (Remilia) on Easy.
I've actually been trying it on a variety of different displays, none of which are as good as my laptop. My TV worked well, but it randomly started flashing white, so I turned it off in fear of it blowing up. It was pretty fun on the DS for the 5 seconds before I noticed HUGE lag between it and my PC. So I now just play in fullscreen mode.
The lack of PoC sux, every time there's a bunch of power thingys I head up to the top of the screen, only to watch them fall and disappear. The controls piss me off too, it seems much less responsive than the other games.
IMO IN is best. It has Alice with her LAZOR, Wriggle with her pants, Mystia with her DUN...DUN...DUN...DUN...DUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUN and best of all, Reisen with her Ears, Suppositories and DUN DUN DUN DUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUUUN DUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUNDUN. She should be playable in a REAL Touhou game, rather than a multiplayer scramble with horrible controls, or a fighting spin-off game.
Also lulz.

In other news, I was gonna go to cornwall next week for my 17th birthday (in b4 underageb&), but it got canceled. I'm still going in summer, though.

Edit: Scratch that, it's still happening.
