Call it a compilation journal. :V
Rant 1: I do not like fan characters
I don't mind if someone derrives their style or some of their ideas from a certain series but when someone's being a complete fucking fanboy and blatantly referencing things from the canon, especially mentioning their character in relation to canon characters, it really annoys me. For one thing, they look like a massive tool, and for another, and this is coming from someone who likes a serious RP with a story and character development, it ruins the feel of a story for me. Especially if it's an RP and they're shoehorning all kinds of things in from SOnic into an original universe that might not even involve some of those things. (Example, a magic and fantasy universe having technology and mechs plugged into it for no better reason than someone had to play a fucking Gundam.) I strongly recommend taking their shit to an RP centered around the universe their OCDNS is from, and keeping it FAR AWAY FROM ME.
Rant 2: ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU SPEAK IT?
Fucking illegal aliens running around MY country and they won't even learn our national language? I understand that their country is full of worms and poor rent but is it really that much to ask that everyone who wants to live here not carry this smug attitude that Spanish is so much better than English? What is so goddamn great about their language that they can't learn mine? And I would have the same expectations of someone who moved out of my country and in another, they could at least put forth the effort to learn the native language of the country they're LIVING IN. I know I certainly won't just up and move to Germany without learning how to at least ask where the ladies' room is.
Rant 3: Fuck the gaming industry.
I'm tired of the only games of today being shooters and gritty, realistic adventure games that just happen to involve guns (AKA shooters), what I'd like is for someone to pull their head out of their ass and develop something with an interesting art style that has more than three colors being displayed on screen, two of those being different shades of brown and the third being red, and preferably a fun gameplay mechanic that DIDN'T involve guns. At least Zelda isn't entirely in the shithole now, that being the only good fantasy adventure game left. I remember a simpler time when we play Nintendo games on a purple box and Sony didn't have shit for a library because devent companies actually wanted to develop for Sony and when you weren't missing out on half the game if you didn't pay $30 for DLC, yes THAT time back in the 6th generation when we all dreamed of the potential of the 7th only to have that potential take a shit in our gaping mouths and now the whole thing's just left an aftertaste I can't get past.
Rant 4: Fuck you Notch, fuck you.
Can you possibly make Monecraft run slower, Notch? I think my client is still remotely managable, you might wanna just fix that for me. :l Seriously, what kind of dumbfuck programs an entire game in Java? At some point, didn't someone turn around and say "Wow this game is getting bloated! We should probably translating it to C or some other language that doesn't shit on your processor." But no, they continued to develop the game in Java. I can't wait to see how much more unplayable this game'll be by 1.7. Also trapdoors suck and look ugly in my house.
Rant 5: Communities usually don't involve nuking each other!
It's like some places on the internet *coughwildcritterscough* don't know what acceptable behavior is, and honestly, I think it's pretty damn hard not to. Unless you were raised by complete assholes and never had any other human contact. Really, in a community where flaming and trolling is perfectly acceptable, you have to question the sanity of the admins. Same thing goes for a lot of places on the net. (Minecraft forums, Blockland forums, almost every MMO community, virtually every fan forum I've been to that wasn't Sonic-related) If I only had the time on my hands, I'd just go make my own damn forum and run it the way an admin SHOULD run a community, but I have other things like college to worry about so I can't even attempt to resolve a problem I think is serious. I think it's pretty sad that this should even be a concern, why can't admins just be admins and make communities pleasant places? Well obviously Blockland isn't pleasant becaust Badspot is a complete asshat just like the people he attracts but why can't the Minecraft forum admins actually whip that community into shape, or why can't Windcritters drop their pretentious bullshit about advocating free speech as an excuse to advocate flaming and actually do their damn jobs? I stopped going to a lot of these places because of how horrible the admins are and the lack of community in general is pathetic. With so many badly modded forums, I'm glad I started going to forums with one where people were mature and could talk freely while still being civil human beings.
That's all I can think of right now. :V
