*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
Topic is -= Finally the game I have always wanted =-

[05:28] <@spiritflame> system announce - a new log begun -
[05:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> But then the vicar said, "that's not a strudel, my child".
[05:29] <C'est_la_V> Yeesh
[05:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So how's X?
[05:30] <C'est_la_V> He's feeling better... but you guys wouldn't let me help him ><
[05:31] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> And that, Neko, is *why* he's feeling better. The legends of "Malpractice Minako-chan" are well known arond these parts.
[05:32] <C'est_la_V> Don't believe what Chibiusa-chan says, *she* was the incompetent nurse!!
[05:32] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So why isn't X around, then?
[05:33] <C'est_la_V> I told him to rest up-- and now he's got addicted to a computer game...
[05:34] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Oh yeah, Doom 3, I got that for you guys as a wedding present.
[05:34] <C'est_la_V> No... he still hasn't finished that.
[05:35] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> DAMN. It's only been what, 2 months.
[05:35] <C'est_la_V> He got distracted with other stuff
[05:36] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I'll bet, heh ^_~
[05:36] <C'est_la_V> Not that kind of stuff.. mostly.
[05:36] * C'est_la_V giggles
[05:36] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Halo 2?
[05:37] <C'est_la_V> Nope, I broke the X-Box one day.
[05:37] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> X without an X-box, LOL
[05:37] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Half-life 2?
[05:38] <C'est_la_V> I won't let him play it until he beats Doom 3
[05:39] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL You need to see the Gravity gun. I think they stole the idea from a Ducktales episode where Gyro imagines a Furniture Mover Ray.
[05:39] * C'est_la_V remembers that
[05:39] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So what game is it, Neko?
[05:40] <C'est_la_V> Ever since I met X-chan I've been trying to get him to learn Japanese
[05:41] <C'est_la_V> But he has a hard time remembering the kana because he's too lazy to write them out.
[05:42] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Umm, I've heard your words of encouragement as well... "Baka! How hard can it be, I've been reading it since I was a little kid!!"
[05:42] * C'est_la_V was :P
[05:43] <C'est_la_V> I'm fully fluent in English :P
[05:45] <=^catablanca^=> That's because you'd always be late for class and sensei would give you 30-50 English problems to do each day as punishment, then you went to England for half a year, got tutored and immersed. All you do for X is teach him three words, "Baka", "Sugoi", and "Kimmochi"
[05:45] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LMFAO
[05:46] * C'est_la_V smacks Artemis (go back to larking)
[05:47] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL You might be fluent because of punishments neko, but your lack of knowing jack s[BLEEP]t about idioms is pun-ishment to us :P
[05:47] <C'est_la_V> Ha ha
[05:47] <=^catablanca^=> LOL
[05:48] <C'est_la_V> So anyway, X-chan was getting so desperate that he was going to learn by romaji, just to get the grammar down.
[05:48] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Why not just bang your head on a rusty nail and call it science?
[05:49] <=^catablanca^=> ...
[05:49] <C'est_la_V> So I said "Wait, when I was training as Sailor V, I trained on this wicked Computer Game that made things easier."
[05:49] * =^catablanca^= made that game
[05:50] <C'est_la_V> No you didn't, "Boss" did!
[05:50] <=^catablanca^=> Boss was a disembodied VOICE, Mina!
[05:51] <C'est_la_V> Wait... so you made the game?
[05:51] * =^catablanca^= nods
[05:51] * C'est_la_V looks over Artemis
[05:51] <=^catablanca^=> Ho Ho, got some new respect for me, do you?
[05:52] * C'est_la_V is wondering how you got the game to pop out of your ass
[05:52] <=^catablanca^=> _;
[05:52] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> BWAHAHAHAHA
[05:53] *** =^catablanca^= [arty@ip6943.ai.co.jp] has quit IRC (It didn't pop out of my ass you jerk... just the tools to build it with...)
[05:53] <C'est_la_V> LMAO
[05:53] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Don't do that, Neko... who knows what the hell might fall out
[05:54] * C'est_la_V can't stop laughing
[05:55] <C'est_la_V> anyway so back to the game-- I found a game that teaches you the kana and it's really fun. X-chan is addicted to itand is learning quite fast...
[05:56] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Oh, you found that "Strip Hiragana" thing?
[05:56] <C'est_la_V> The what???
[05:57] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Someone made a flash once, where it quizzes you on Hiragana and the more you get right, the more clothes come off
[05:57] <C'est_la_V> NO
[05:57] <C'est_la_V> Why would I give my HUSBAND that kind of a game!?
[05:57] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Unless he gets the special "live-live" edition, heh
[05:58] <C'est_la_V> _;
[05:58] <C'est_la_V> No.
[05:58] * C'est_la_V files that away for later ♡
[05:58] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL
[05:59] <C'est_la_V> This game is set up like an RPG from the Super Famicom... you go around a forest and kill slimes... the only way to make a hit is to type in the correct name of the kana they show you before you attack.
[06:00] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Neat idea.
[06:01] <C'est_la_V> It's fast-paced and addicitive. X-chan was getting slaughtered at first (They throw you right into the dork end of the pool) But he's actually picking them up now. I think he'll learn them in no time, which will be a feat for him.
[06:03] <C'est_la_V> Go here, click on "Slime forest". It unpacks to whatever directory you want to run it in. The game is updated ever week I think. --> http://lrnj.com/
[06:04] <C'est_la_V> The graphics are really bad (on purpose) but X-chan loaded them in Photoshop and changed it so now he's got sprites from "Another Story" running around and a kawaii Chibi Sailor V-chan to fight with!! ♡
[06:04] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> heh
[06:05] <C'est_la_V> Of course he can't change the text in the game, so everyone thinks V-chan is a boy, but who cares LOL
[06:05] <C'est_la_V> I think this is a fun way to learn Kana!!
[06:06] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- chuckles

Yeah, the ones you hacked for the game. That does sound like it would be awesome.

Kakyuu - Yeah, thanks, but I'm still not 100% yet, I just haven't been in a chatbox mood lately. I expect I'll show up eventually, heh.

Dr. X • 11/22/04 06:29am

wing0gund, do you mean the ones I hacked for the game, or just the regular Another Story sprites? If it's for the game I can probably put them up in a day or so.

Dr. X • 11/22/04 06:24am

Thank you for finding that, that will be helpful. By the way, any way we can get those Another Story sprites?

wing0gund • 11/22/04 03:15am

Same with me starcat!

Feeling any better X?

Kakyuu [e-mail] • 11/21/04 07:35pm

I might have to check this out! ^_^
