Hey guys!!

I have a proposition to make for all of my Assassin's Creed fan friends. You can ignore this otherwise because that is seriously all I am talking about. Also, money. You can ignore it if you don't have any. >.>

The thing is this: I really, really want the Doctor version of the jack-in-the-box collector's item. However, Gamestop does not receive these versions of the collector's edition and yet I do not want to cancel my reserve from there. Basically, I want both versions of the jack-in-the-box. (The other one is the Harlequin, which makes more sense iconically, but I think the Doctor one is more cute. Oh, me, why.) I can't exactly afford both or, more importantly, do not need two copies of the game itself nor any of the other items. So my proposition is thus:

If anyone is buying the collector's edition from anywhere OTHER than Gamestop, will they sell me the Doctor jack-in-the-box for about 20 dollars?


If I bought the collector's edition straight from Ubisoft would anyone like to pay only $75 and receive all of the collector's items except for the Doctor jack-in-the-box?

I figure the latter is probably more likely to happen but it's up to you guys! I think it's a great deal because basically all you're paying for is the exact amount for the full game plus an extra measly 10 for all the other bonus items. I'd have to see how much shipping is but I'll likely pay for that, too, especially if you're desperate on cash. ^^

This is basically me being selfish, yes. Oh! And the sooner I know whether you want to make the deal the better. This is so I can preorder it from Ubisoft asap so I don't miss out, plus I have a coupon I'm not sure when will run out. |D (Which means I'm more likely to pay for shipping it to you!) Also, I can always cancel my preorder with Gamestop if you have to back out for whatever reason so if you think it might be possible for you to do when it comes out just go ahead and say yes so we can do this.

Please let me know which copy of the game you need: either PS3 or Xbox360. This is another reason why I need to know asap before I just...go and preorder one.

Oh, jeez that's tl;dr, why?

aisuyoukai: (loneliness of the cat [okami])
Just watched Knowing. I liked it. I don't care if people think the ending is predictable/corny. I still thought it was a good film. I also happen to really like Cage so that helps. Sue me. But still I think I would have liked it anyway.

These are just thoughts I want to get out of my head. Things about the film. Spoilers if you haven't seen it.

Allusion )

That...did not turn out as expected. Ignore that. Please.

Heck yeah.

That is all.

It's a very good song, too. Not that that really matters but it is a good song. Very catchy, actually. Good beat.


P.S.--Yes, that is Altaïr/Desmond/Ezio singing. He looks different, I know. But it's him. Tell me he's not sexy and DIE.

...... /dying now over Caterina's words to the Orsi occupiers

Oh oh, oh my God. I-I was...gonna post over how cute Leo was at the beginning maybe, but... but now I am having a hard time breathing. Oh, Caterina. Suddenly I am in love.

And I thought Rosa had a foul mouth! xDDD

Edit: OH. That's what's in that stupid pink pouch. Because that makes it SO INCONSPICUOUS, Ezio!!!! Ffft!!

Double Edit (already finished): ...oh, that's not even fair. I want Sequence 13 already. :<

I think this is the guy I remember reading about when I went on my Medici/Florentine history binge on wiki. I should not be allowed to go there if I don't want to get distracted foreverrrrrrrrr. He's some weird church guy the people loved but has a bad history, or something, and for a while had Firenze in his clutches--till the Medici finally got it back, thank God. ...I just wish the Medici could have kept it a little longer after Il Magnifico died. Ah, well.

I just find it so amusing that I read about him already. I love how they play real history to make their own invents fit in so smoothly. It's awesome. Good job, Ubisoft! Bene, molto bene!

... /sigh. Back to being bored. :c

Happy New Year!

I had a great time! I had some friends over--yes, over at MY house for a change--and it was fun. We had some steak and chicken grilled to delish~ with some potatoes on the side and it was good. So then we huddled next to the small fire for like ever hanging out and dodging the smoke. XD It was hilarious fun. Ring-around-the-fire, seriously. Mucho funo. Yeah...

And smores. I almost forgot to mention the smores. Yum. Marshmellows~

Then after midnight and a few firecrackers--and watching everyone else's really nice displays, lol, so awesome of them to spend the money for our pleasure XD--we headed inside and played a zombie card game. Oh, man, Neko I am so sorry you missed out. It was wicked fun, and so crazy!! Baratus won by accident more than anything else. XDDD

Also, Tori, since you're the only one I've told something to you get to deal with my rantings next time we're both on AIM. Enjoy.

And that's about it. Hey Neko--when do you go back? Just curious. :3

Also I bought a game and ACII book that I do not need but oh well. Got a pretty soundtrack with the game I'm listening to now, so, uh, yay?. So yeah. End of my day. I'm spent and I think I can thoroughly get to bed by this point. Phew.

aisuyoukai: (famiglia [ac])
Spoilers I guess? )

Also, apparently my Xbox's graphics settings were dumbed way down due to me not knowing there's a switch on the back to enable the HD component. Way to go me. Had the right cables hooked up, got a TV that actually does HD like whoa, and yet-- right. Thanks, Bubba, for figuring that out. And fixing it. I have to admit I believe Ezio looks much better in HD. Fffffft!

That is all. Oh, well... why not...

Merry Christmas.
aisuyoukai: (40 days lost and wandering [ac])
...I think Desmond just summed the entirely of that game in three simple words. Yep.

That is all.
aisuyoukai: (changing of the guard [ac])

...oh, snap. What are you doing Desmond?
aisuyoukai: (winged devil [dmc])
HALLOWEEN WAS SO MUCH FUN. I had a blast. And while only one of you will get ANYTHING I am talking about in this spiel I am about to type out I don't care and you can have fun laughing at me, seriously. Also yes, there will be crude humor involved. XD You have be warned, damnit.

So I went to Renfest (that's renaissance festival for you non-Texans) with my friends this year for Halloween. (So cool that it actually fell exactly on it this year, heh.) It's kinda a tradition but this year was so sweet. I went as a winged devil. SO MUCH FUN. I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH. I was playing with the wings all day, but especially got into it as it got dark and beyond. I GOT ASKED FOR FOUR PHOTOSHOOTS. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I've never been asked for photos before; it was quite exciting. :D I also scared a kid who thought he could bad-mouth a devil. Retard. ....and then there were ten-million "horny devil"/"horniest lady I've seen all day" comments flying about. It was rather amusing, actually. All in good jest. (And then there was this one old guy who was creepy about it. I swear to God one of my friends tried to distract and he did NOT look away from me. /cries. But someone else walked up and said something and thus attention diverted we all just sorta....walked away. LOL.) Also got asked for a random hug, idk but I was too happy being excited people liked my costume to be "personal space RAWR" person that day so... she got it. lol. DID I MENTION I GOT ASKED FOR PHOTOS? /shot. Okay, okay.

AND TORI. (Teagan already heard.) GUESS WHAT? I SWEAR TO GOD (again even!) THAT I ACTED LIKE RAMPANT THE OTHER NIGHT. Technically the pair of friends I went with (there were more but we sorta split off and the fourth wasn't dressed up, whatever) went as elementals--the King of Fire and Queen of Ice--and I was their pet demon. lol. So "Master" bought a bag of sweet popcorn (best popcorn I've ever had, I kid you not; it is both sugared and salted) and because my hands literally were my wings it wasn't very practical for me to use them--so I was begging for treats. I did tricks to get them! Haha. (I would open my wings to different degrees and stuff like that.) It was...oddly fun. SHUT UP. I WAS HAVING FUN IN CHARACTER. Plus it was totally amusing. I think "Mistress" might have been a little embarrassed but that's okay, that's not very hard to do. lol. And she was having fun, too. I'm glad. I'm pretty sure we all had tons of fun. I mean obviously I know I did, and the new addition seemed to thoroughly enjoy the crude humor floating around, haha, and obviously Baratus always loves it, and I think even Mokushi loved every bit of it. ^__^

So awesome.

SO NEKO. We actually only managed to watch one show this year, lol, we kept missing the others, oops, but we were just having so much fun walking around and goofing off and talking to random people/shop owners and.... but anyway! You remember the "Art of Defense Symposium" or whatever it was called (at the Academy of Arms)? Yeah, we managed to actually catch that one. (And before that we listened to Tartantic if you remember them.) Well they had a new person this year! It was still four people battling it out and stuff, but instead of four guys their new person was a girl. SHE WAS SO COOL. And crude. LOL. It was great, really. I could not get over the fact that she was from Florence, Italy. (Why yes I am obsessed with certain assassin-y game coming out on the 17th.) Okay so for you guys who have no clue what I'm talking about their act is that they're four people from different parts of Europe who come here to compete in a small tournament. There is Oscar Hosslehoff from Germany, "Hard" John from England, "Little" Peter O'Toole from Dublin, Ireland, and the new Patchou--you know what I'm going to butcher her name if I even tried because not only can I not spell it but I couldn't even pronounce it really >.>--from Florence, Italy. (They each had specifics but that's all I can remember by heart, damnit!) I really liked the girl this year--and she won! (Which is ironic, really, because last year my favorite was O'Toole and he won when we watched that year. Haha.) They have the audience vote on the winners so even if one of them wins the duels the crowd favorite wins. Oh, and Hosslehoff has this amusing "new" book called "Grab Them By the Crotch and Throw Them Out the Window!" (Best said with a German accent, seriously. Go ahead, do it. I'll wait. /pauses typing for ten seconds.) So the steps are basically thus: I forget the first two but then there's 3) grab them, 4) pummel them (this is my favorite part, Hosslehoff says and pommels a few more seconds), 5) grab them by the crotch, and 6) throw them out the window! Fffft. It's wonderful. So then they introduce the four competitors and it's all great but the one thing I must share is when Hosslehoff was being introed the announcer ("Hard" John usually does this except for himself) mentions the book and Hosslehoff immediately plugs it with "It will change your life!" and then the girl went "It changed my gender!" Ehehehe. Also they have one "intermission" with an "advertisement" that Hosslehoff and John usually do together about (and here comes the really crude humor, folks) "Better Beaver Butter!"--with 50% less beaver hair than other beaver butter! FFFT. Okay, I'm done you can read again. >D

...and if you don't get that, please don't ask. LOLOLOL. (Or as they put it in the beginning: this act does have violence and crude humor; it is not for kids. we warned you! although if they go to public school they won't be able to tell the difference anyway! ...if you don't get a joke ask your kids.)

Vaguely sad we didn't catch any other shows but we did hear "Cast in Iron" while we--well, they--were throwing knifes and axes and stuff. Then we walked over there to listen more but...uh...this REALLY drunk gypsy-wench draped herself over Homer and he told her to get off after smelling her breath (apparently she was spinning around, dancing? and its not hard to wonder why she started to FALL). He had that "serious smile" on his face--it's hard to explain without knowing him 'cause it's not really a smile per se--but basically it meant he was being forcefully polite while really not wanting to deal with something. Least to say it kinda ruined the happy music times for us, lol, and anyway it was over with after that song apparently. We avoided the gypsy-wench and didn't shoot the longbows 'cause she was there at the time, ffft, and went straight to listen to the "drunk-a-wench" which is--you guessed it--more crude humor times. Basically what the, ahem, "lady" does in the tank is rally really hard on the people throwing at the button and/or the nearest would-be throwers if no one is currently doing so. It's great to listen to. Newb (he doesn't have a nifty name given for internet use, heh) threw at her and got close (coupla inches) each throw except for one where you could tell he was getting frustrated. XD Then we walked across the way and listened to the OTHER guy--like a jester type. You threw tomatoes at his face while he bad-mouthed you. lol. Newb threw at him too and this time got worse as he began laughing too hard. XDD All in all it was great fun.

...Hmmm. What else? OH YEAH. The sword shop had some new replicas they were selling this year: video game swords. They had Alty's long sword, a very interesting metal version of Halo's energy sword, and--dun dun dun--Red Queen from, duh, Devil May Cry 4. They're all too small in size for me to have wanted to buy them for shits and giggles. If it's not going to be a working blade I want to buy the damn thing at the right size. Ya know? Plus Red Queen was way too expensive. However, it was really interesting to see up close. I never realized just how AWKWARD a sword that thing is--seriously, it looks weird. It has odd angles and random pieces just...sticking out. I don't know how to explain it. But it was cool to see in person like that...even though it was so "tiny." (Maybe three-four feet long? And too small width-wise. Trust me. That's so not how large the real thing would be.) They had the rev parts and everything though. The first time I saw it I was pissed and turned my back on it. But I had to go back several times to look at it. XD /is a sucker. Seriously too expensive for the size though. Oh, and Alty's sword? Way too small too. It was say... short sword (if even!) size, and trust me it was NOT his short sword. That is curved. It was his long sword. Only... not long. GAY.

But that's okay because I know how easy it is to find them online (and even as WORKING BLADES if I want) so I'm not worried about that. Because yes, I plan on buying them. XP

SPEAKING OF ASSASSIN'S CREED. There was...a guy dressed as Alty up there. Except. It made me want to cry. He was kinda larger and the costume he had didn't fit so well and and and... and yeah, it just wasn't cool, sadly. (Someone today told me they saw a black robed version, too! But I didn't see him personally. :c) /SIGH

...I think that's FINALLY about it. Oh, yeah. I'll have pictures up later I SWEAR. I just have to get them first and they're not on my camera (yeah, right. WHAT camera? fft.) So I promise you those, flist, in the future!! Seriously!


Hope everyone had a great Halloween, too. Later~!
