Castlevania is eating my soul

... Because I KNOW I read somewhere that once you beat the game and unlock the secret character, you can get Alucard to join you.


This game is so good. OMG. It's like.. the Castlevania game I've been waiting years to play. I dare say it's better than Aria of Sorrow, making it #2 on my best Castlevania games of all time list.

1. Symphony of the Night
2. Dawn of Sorrow
3. Aria of Sorrow
4. Super Castlevania IV or whatever that silly SNES Simon Belmont game was
5. Lament of Innocence (Hey, I REALLY enjoyed that one :P Bugger off)

And it's been a few years now since Lament of Innocence, I guess. But it wasn't 2-D, so it didnt' get the same warm fuzzies Aria of Sorrow got. Now I have over 74% of my map uncovered in Dawn of Sorrow, and I'm sad because I know I'm almost done with it :( I have been suck so many times in this game! That's how you know it's good. Anyway... I have SMT:DDS:AT:omfglongtitlegame to look forward to after I beat this one. I need to finish the first part so I can load data for the second part. (Oh yeah, and get that missing chunk of story. I last left Lt. Data, Angstyboobs, Jerkface, Rastaman, and Crunchymuncy down in some sewers somewhere, and kinda need to pick up where I left off with that.

I warned the guys in the guild on WoW I was a little pre-occupied with Castlevania, so I hope they understand if I only make it to minimal guild functions for a while :P

I'm also debating whether or not to work on those garments for my halloween costume. If I make the purple justacourps, I'm going to have to hold off on the lining until I get all the embroidery on the front. And that's going to have to be in either gold or silver. Silver would match my corset. Gold would match the satin I was thinking about making pants out of. The pants could be used for another costume, but it would be more accurate to make the pants out of a short pile velvet in a slightly darker color. Oh noes! The decisions! Whatever I do, though, I really need to clean that sewing table off..

Oh, and Mr. pukey is up to it again. Senpu threw up an amazing 4 times yesterday. I'm worried about somthing being wrong with him. Last time he was throwing up a lot, and I took him to the vet, he got some injections, but the whole thing seemed to be a mystery to even the vet. I mean, there was no definitive "This is what is wrong with your cat." It was more like "Here's 4 things that could be wrong with him. Let's treat them all and let me know if he keeps throwing up." Well, he stopped for a while, and then out of the blue, yesterday, 4 barfs. Today, he was at it again. We haven't given him ANY tuna since his first problems, so while it seemed he threw up every time we gave him tuna, it's definitely not the case. He was scratching his head a lot yesterday, so I think he might be allergic to somthing. We got him some new shrimp& tuna treats at the store the other day... and he managed to throw those up, too. But hey.. at least he's enthusiastic! He doesn't have a sore tummy, he's very enthusiastic about eating things that will probably make him barf, and he's still playing and purring a lot. So I think... maybe he is bulemic. Or maybe he is a CoE and just likes to purge.
HAHA.. he just sneezed.


I just wanted to let everyone know that I have just had the best beef curry I've ever had. It was at Shogun, our favorite hibachi place. I guess I never noticed it was on the menu before.. that, or they just added it. I don't know. But it was WONDERFUL. It was very mild, but the heat crept up on you. I don't like spicy things, really.. so it was very nice because you got to enjoy the flavor of the curry without the heat getting in the way, and you got to experience the heat of the curry after you were just about done with it. It has long, thin slices of onion, celery, and REALLY good beef. There were no carrots, and I was kind of sad about it, but it was still awesome. The funny thing is.. I guess they don;t make it too often, because they gave it to me with the rice on a place, and everything else in a gravy boat on the side.. rotflmao. But, it actually worked out best that way, because I didn;t get my rice absolutely drenched in curry sauce, and I could measure out the ammount of sauce I wanted, or just pick out all the meat and veggies with my chopsticks. New favorite <3

Castlevania still rocks. I found out Double Jump published a strat guide for it, so I ran out and bought it, because they are AWESOME. They also made a strat guide for the game "Genji." I wasn't really planning on buying that game.. but I might, since they made a guide for it. I mean.. the guys that make the guides over at doublejump pretty much have all the same game interests I do, and the guides they make are freakin' fantastic. They have made guides for some of my favorite games: Disgaea, Phantom Brave, Makai Kingdom, SMT:Nocturne, and this new Castlevania....
So Genji must be pretty good :O

When I bought the guide, though, the guy at the game shop was a total dick. I never liked working with that guy, and I see he's only honed his skills of assmanship since then. Even Akuma noticed and mentioned whad an ass he was. A WINNAR IZ U!
