Time to write a journal update again~
I feel like trying out some special journal skin just because I can because ~Hoodiboo
has given me a subscription! Hooray!
I knew so much I wanted to do with it when I had none and now that I have it I can't remember anything of it...
Oh yeah right - I finally wrote a proper commission journal. It's here
, as well as in the header up there.
So, I just returned from school and got my semester certificate of this year.
High school is really hard over here and consumes most of your time - I am the only one who is good off with taking it easy (not wanting to show off, just saying that there's no student who doesn't think its hard)
I'm very pleased of the outcome as it is the best certificate I have had in my entire high school years (for those who understand, I am 12th grade G9 Gymnasium.) I don't want to go into detail because I think I'd need to expalin how hard it is in comparison to other schools first - we have 11 mandatory classes, 34 hours of school per week, at colleges nothing but your final graduation in all 11 classes counts which means somebody who is good at physics and math but doesn't even know what a canvas is has better chances to get taken by an art college than me bla bla bla.... But I actually was able to get a score of 2,0, which equals B. (With A in art and philosophy, and goddamn A+ in biology, heck yeah!)
Just happy about that.Anyways. Okamiden.
Christmas is some time through already, I got tons of awesome stuff, JTHM for example, which is awesome, and also the long awaited sequel of the masterpiece Okami - Okamiden.
I would give it 3/5 stars personally, but 5/5 when I think of what my critique points are. They are all based on comparisons to the original game - which of course being made for PS2 has a far stronger engine for everything than a DS, so I missed stuff like double-jumping, actually jumping up and falling down from somewhere, the basic stuff like headbutt, digging and HECK how I missed randomly barking! XD
I also see that I am not nearly at 100% after playing through the story once, just as with Okami, but I also found the storyline had some lenghts which bored me - maybe also only because of speed running. The story idea though is nice, design and everything is great. Still I always felt the urge to turn off the DS and start playing the original Okami with its fluid fighting style and smooth running and jumping - I personally found the rosaries in Okamiden pretty hard to handle, though they are my favorite weapon to fight with in Okami. I haven't unlocked the stonger weapons yet but I will soon just to test them out.
As you can see all my critique points are based on comparisons which shouldn't be done due to engine limits, and that's why I would give Okamiden 5/5 though it feels to me like 3/5.Hooray for journal update,
I'll be going to a Dropkick Murphys concert today. It's in Hamburg.
