So, recently I decided I think I'm probably going to be leaving Gamespot sometime in the future. Not right away, but probably before the end of August 2010. For anyone wondering why, honestly, I'm just bored. There's next to no activity in the places I like. I used to stay for the friends I made here, but I lost touch with all the ones that were the most important to me. It's not that I don't care about everyone I know here, but they were the main reason I stayed around for so long. Plus, I'm level 41. It's getting kinda sad at this point. lol. Originally I was looking forward to even breaking the upper 30's, but now it's just a reminder of how it's been over 20 levels since I actually had fun here. I know they work at different paces for each user, but my levels here climb at a pretty slow pace, so that's been a while.
I dunno. There's just not really any reason to stay anymore, and I don't know why I don't just leave right now. Plus, there's just so many other places that feel so much more comfortable to spend time at. I don't now, nor will I ever, own an Xbox, so Gamespot just isn't for people like me. They've made that clear enough. lol. There's just new places that have actual discussions over stuff, instead of nothing but 14-year-olds spamming bullsh*t about how Final Fantasy 7 is the greatest game of all time, just because the chan sites told them so. I think the day the legacy forum here had nothing, and I mean nothing, but FF7 topics was the day that it just once and for all conviced me that I don't want to be here anymore.
Anyway, as far as games go, I'm finnally at the end of Star Ocean 4. All I can say is: Meh. lol. Once you play 3, it really does ruin the entire series. The whole time, I keep thinking,
[spoiler] This would be so much more awesome if it wasn't just a game. And just in one of the last scenes I watched, they had a part where the drawings Lymle was making the whole time turned out to be useful, and protected the Calnus from the Phantoms and so on, after Crowe makes that black hole. But I just kept thinking how much more awesome it would have been if I didn't know Lym's user probably did that in advance, for just such a situation. [/spoiler]
Anyway, that's pretty much it. I'll still be around for a while, but I won't be on the site anywhere near as much. Which will make no difference anyway, since everywhere I actually still bother to go is dead, or slow as sh*t around here. lol
Special Bonus 64! (The final Special Bonus?)
I don't remember if I ever used this or not, but it's here anyway. This is a video by Zun based on the Silent Sinner in Blue manga. It's actually surprisingly very acurate. It just won't make any sense at all for people who have never read it, and that's what makes this video amazing. It makes perfect sense, but not to people who don't already know what it's telling you. Also, if your wondering what the text that scrolls by says, don't worry, it won't help you understand at all, so its not worth writing the translations. lol
By the way, had to try to post this 15 times, because Gamespot can't understand that I didn't use tags. I never have. Yet another reason I want to leave sooner than I plan to.
