Ah, Within Temptation...  
I used to listen to angsty, depressing music, like the Cruxshadows.

Then I started listening to happy music, like Utada Hikaru and video game soundtracks.

Now, I listen to happy-sounding music with angsty-depressing lyrics. Things have achieved a balance, of a sort.

Watching this video has made me want to play Symphony of the Night again. For a platformer, it was pretty damn good. It had plenty of RPG elements, which is something I'm a huge fan of (I even went and found a mod that added RPG elements to Unreal Tournament. I don't know anyone else who used it, and the bots weren't the best at point allocation, but it was still fun), the castle was huge, there were all kinds of moves you could pull off...SotN is basically the Castlevania game against which all others should be measured. It should be fun to play again. Now, if I could just manage to beat Xenogears...

I saw The Illusionist tonight...again. It wasn't bad, though I liked The Prestige better. Not that the two movies are really comparable, except insofar as A) they're about magicians and B) a lot of the movie seems to be about one thing but is actually about another. The Illusionist didn't have sci-fi elements, though (well...not really), which does make it better as a period piece. They're both worth seeing, regardless. :)

Wedding invitations have been assembled. We'll be sending them out soon.
Current Mood: chipperchipper
Current Music: Within Temptation - Hand Of Sorrow

SotN was the best 2D platformer for any system in the past 3 generations of consoles. Period.

Um, Cruxshadows is now happy-sounding music with angsty-depressing lyrics. They're dance techno goth. So does that mean you've come full circle?

Are they?

I should have bought that album like you suggested. -_-

So, you didn't outgrow Cruxshadows, they've just outgrown you? Like Tony Snow doesn't really have cancer, cancer has Tony Snow.

In Soviet Russia, Tony Snow cancers YOU!
