Cave Martians – Moving to Mars?

Colonies on Mars? It would seem we are one step closer to that. Space.Com seems to think so. I highly doubt it’ll happen in my lifetime, but should we really attempt to take over another planet when we’re not doing so hot with this one?

I don’t know how I like being thought of as a future martian. I love being an Earthling. I don’t know, this whole idea gives me a foreboding feeling. I know it’s too early to really get my feathers ruffled, but there’s got to be some kind of morality being questioned here.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Some Kingdom Hearts 3 Thoughts

I mentioned a little about KH3 in an earlier post when I was talking about KHII:FM. I still haven’t finished KHII myself, but I’m working on it. (Oh come on, I don’t have a playstation 2, I leach off of other’s, give me a break).

So what we know so far is that there is a definite KH3, and that Sora has to be a main character (it’s his story, he has to be in it – even if not physically). But supposedly there are three new characters somehow related to characters from the previous games. We also know that Xehanorth plays a big part in it (in his memories) and a Keyblade War is going to happen.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, the secret KH3 trailer that’s at the end of KH2 can be seen here. It’s been out in awhile, so there’s no old news and tons of rumors about who the three are and what’s going on.

But some of those rumors have been fed and now there are even more, because this week the extended KH3 trailer has been released and oh my goodness, is it intess.

You can check out the trailer at Kingdom Hearts 3 with English Subtitles, or you can download the original here.

Let me tell you, I’ll admit, there were tears after I finished watching this. The graphics look absolutely amazing, the characters, the plot, everything looks like this is going to be the darkest Kingdom Hearts yet. And despite the fact that two of the knights in the video look like Roxas/Sora and Riku, we’ve been told that they aren’t. And because this game is going to be relying heavily on memory and the past, I wonder if this is something that had already happened… I don’t know. But I’m sure as hell going to be in line for my copy when it comes out.

Other than that, since KHII:FM has been released, KH-Vids has a whole mess of videos from the game that you can view and see what you too are missing out on. I really want that game. If you have, let me know how you like it!

Oh, and KH-Vids has created the Super trailer, with both the original and the new trailer combined:

Any thoughts/theories are more than welcome for the new game.

Girl Gamer Mode: Kingdom Hearts and More!

Haven’t blogged in awhile. It’s kind of sad. I’m probably the only one who noticed anyway.

So what’s new? Well in the gaming world, KHII: Final Mix will be released in Japan on the 28th of this month. Unfortunately, it won’t be released in North America or Europe until this Fall at some point, though the actual date hasn’t been announced. I’ve heard rumors that a KHIII might be in the making, but I won’t say anything else until I find out more.

I’m insanely interested in the Lord of the Rings Online MMORPG, Shadows of Angmar, but if I even attempt at thinking of signing up for the Beta run I’m afraid my computer with sponataneously combust. So, if any of you are playing it already or interested in it, I’d like to hear what you have to say about it.

And just to throw in a little WoW since that will forever be my favorite of all the online gaming world, the Armory is up and running in Beta mode. It’s been up for awhile, I just haven’t gotten around to saying anything about it. It seems pretty helpful though I admit I haven’t fully delved into its treasures yet.

In other news: I missed my favorite band playing tonight, and I’m incredibly sad about – I shouldn’t be, but I am. So I’ll spread the wealth. Go check out Great Big Sea and listen to some of their clips. If you like them, I’ll upload one of their CDs for you. Because I’m generous and I don’t have that big of an audience.

That’s it for now.

Big Flickr Update!

I haven’t updated my Flickr account in a long time, but I finally got around to putting some photos up from over Winter break and from January. I’m pleased with the results anyway.

They'll Eat You.

I’ll probably be fixing up a nicer set for my Wanderlust gallery on DA, but I’ll do that when I have more time.

We’re in the middle of a blizzard right now. I wish it were Spring.
