I'm in at the God of War 3 party/press event. There is a woman on stilts behind me for some reason. Oooh! Free booze.

Man, according to my LJ calendar, I haven't posted here since June/July. It's still the first link on my bookmarks bar, right next to my Facebook link that I click on all the time, so I can't really forget that I still have this LJ. I went back and read my first couple of entries. My first Fanime, my Dilandau skit, getting various people pissed at me. God, I was such as annoying asshole back then. Nowadays, I'm an annoying cynical asshole. Ha ha. Oh well, I'm just posting this here because it's really just a very long Facebook post. I'm not very good at distilling my thoughts into a one sentence Facebook entry.

Making an LJ entry because I honestly dislike writing a paragraph for just a Facebook update.

For some reason that I can't remember, I got a subscription to Electronic Gaming Monthly. I swear it must've been one of those free for a year deals. Anyway, EGM's dead for a while now. Last week, Kotaku said that EGM subscriptions would be transferred to Maxim. Lo and behold! An issue of Maxim for me arrived today. Too bad it's the boring American one and not the amazingly awesome British Maxim. Time for a refund!

This was an unusual Fanime for me. Having to work through most of the weekend, I only had Friday afternoon and all of Saturday, and finally Sunday afternoon to actually be there.

Friday

I rushed through packing Thursday night, pack some old cosplays and clothes for both Fanime and work for the whole weekend. Then after work, I dealt with rush hour to get to Fanime and tried to call Jen on my way there. Since I couldn't get my hotel card, I just parked my car in the garage behind the Fairmont, then when to the reg line. Jen was still busy with shoots, so I browsed the arcade, waiting for the swap meet to start. I played ITG with Sean, and cramped up doing my Touch Me on Stomp. I am WAY out of shape now... The swap meet started up, but the offerings are less than last year, so all I got as a promo Star Trek shirt before joining Jen, Alyssa and their gang, and then we went to Pizza My Heart for dinner.

Saturday

I wanted to start the day off early to make the most of the day, so of course I waited an hour or so for Jen to get her cosplay ready. We circled the dealers room for a bit. Sadly a lot of dealers that I'm used to seeing weren't there this year, so a lot of things I was looking for weren't available. I ended up with a Yamato VMF Mtoko Kusinagi, an MMS SOL Swat Lady, and an Alternity Optimus Prime in silver,. I just can't see myself getting an Optimus Prime in red and blue that isn't a truck of some sort.

After dumping the rewards of our dealer swag hunt to our room, Jen and I ate up some McDonalds, then went back to the room to rest up. We went back to the dealers room til it closed, then we rested up before heading to Alyssa's room to watch the new Haruhi and more anime. Dante kept spamming our phones about his party, so Jen and I went there around 2am for drinks and fun and shit before we retired back to the hotel. I intended to make Saturday as awesome as possible and it certainly was awesome indeed. I think this shirt I wore for half the day was also partially responsible for the awesomeness. It got more people talking to me since I wore Dilandau.

Sunday

Driving to work after 3 hours of sleep and two cups of Baccardi 151 from the party was an interesting experience. On one hand, it felt like I couldn't handle as much alcohol as in my younger years, but on the the other hand, the 151 didn't kill my throat, so maybe I actually can handle it better.

We had a 90 minute lunch break at work, so I actually drove back to Fanime and spent a whole 25 minutes with Jen before having to drive back.

After work, I went straight to the dealer's room with Jen and Alyssa for last second buying, then had some Philly cheesesteak at Johnny Rockets before Jen and I went to the arcade. From the meager offerings of the arcade, and still trying to digest the cheesesteak, I went and tortured myself by trying to figure out all the changes to my mains in Tekken 6, Julia and Xiaoyu. Sadly, as I discovered before, WAY, WAY too many changes were made to them that they are essentially totally different characters to me. I played some DDR and ITG later on and I finally beat Touch Me on Stomp as my last song of the night. Then we packed up for the next day and then went back to Alyssa's room to watch teh most awesome Detroit Metal City live action movie.

Well, that's pretty much all of my Fanime. The post-midnight shenanigans each night were crazy fun, as always. Actually I think things were more fun this year than last year.

...but just for Saturday. And Friday night. And probably Sunday night too.

I've been hesitant to post anything about Fanime because I didn't want to jinx my chances of going, even though I prereg'd for all 4 days a long time ago and paid off my share of the hotel room all in advance. The chances of me going to Fanime are constantly in flux and there were times when I thought I couldn't go to Fanime at all. The reason is because there is a major deadline at work and we have to work for the entire weekend to make it. So far, I've been able to bargain my way to get Saturday free, and I can now guarantee that I'll be at Fanime Friday night and all day Saturday.

The gathering I set up to watch Star Trek on IMAX was an awesome success. For one, everyone got there before the movie actually started, ha ha.

My not-so-spoilery thoughts on the Star Trek movie in bullet points:

Before the movie started I was like:

- Oh God, this so called "Star Trek" is trying to be so mainstream and "cool".

And then the movie started and I was like:Collapse )

Yay! Facebook still fails at LJ updating!

Cool showers are SO GOOD on a hot day.

Left 4 Dead Survival Mode update tonight! No sleep for me!

G.I. Joe Resolute! More episodes!

Tax refunds are AWESOME.

Fanime and San Diego Comic Con are GO.

Which means cosplay needs work, posthaste!

The last game I bought for the Wii was Smash Bros Brawl LAST YEAR. And the cancellation of Fatal Frame 4 and the cancellation/delay of Muramasa: The Demon Blade seem to make that remain unchanged.

Nintendo haet hardcore gamers...
