Grad Nite!!! Disneyland

Several High Schools all over the west coast got a chance to stay overnight at Disneyland for night-long partying. Exclusive to graduating seniors of course.

It was pretty epic. We arrived at maybe 10PM by a nice charter bus and hung out for a little. We waited in front of the Tomorrow-land area, eager for space mountain. So was about 10,000 other people (exaggerating just a little there). As soon as those ropes went down, it was a stampede, the crew members didn't even try to stop us.

We went on a lot of the rides. Space Mountain and Star Tours was first, those have got to be the best. It was my first time on the tabogan thingy, that was pretty cool. I also got to see the Pirates attraction, that was okay too.

Kat-chan and I waited forever in a line to get on the Big Thunder ride, but by the time we got up to the cart, it had broken down. Quite a disappointment, but at least it didn't break down while we were on it.

We shared some hot chocolate and a churro. We kind of got separated from the group around Tea-Cups, but that's okay.

It was fun just enjoying the park. It's quite bustling at night with nothing but high schoolers and DJs. The music was too bad. At least the HTH DJs weren't controlling the choices or it would have all been crap.

There was a very light mist through the whole night. It was kind of refreshing actually.

We stood and watched the 3:00 fireworks show, that was pretty kicking. Synched to music and everything, with pyrotechnics that you could feel from 300 feet away (not kidding), maybe more.

All of this after a long day of internship where I was hiking through canyons. Now I'm writing this after maybe 20 hours of non-stop moving and walking and fun in general.

The bus ride home was nice. We had a really big roomy charter bus. I was awake for the way to disneyland, but was completely conked out on the way home I think. It was nice and relaxing, the gloom made it all the better.

I hope it stays gloomy like this, it's so nice and cozy right now.

I'll get my pictures from the Astro Blasters eventually. Kat-chan will probably post about the cute Graduation Mickey doll she got too.

Even through the whole night, it didn't feel long enough. We couldn't hit all of the attractions, but I think we covered the major ones.

Okay, sleepy time. I've got a nice weekend ahead hopefully.

Tales of Fighting Game


Probably not as good as Tales of VS, but this is a pretty darn good game.

2D doujin freeware. A lot of the sprites are ripped from previous tales games, but a lot of it looks original too. They rendered the Abyss characters nicely.

Try it out for yourself, it's only a few megabytes big. This is really a must for a fan of the Tales series.

EDIT: In case you can't find it, it's the option that says 「A.C.S.」本体(download) under the third menu section.

Prom, what a night

So, this year's theme was Moulin Rouge. Pretty exciting stuff there I guess.

I went with the oh-so-lovely Kat-chan. I worked hard to match her elegant light green.

She looked absolutely stunning ☆。☆ Got her hair done, also had a whole tube of glitter and sparkles dumped on her. She was like a cuter version of Tinkerbell :) That's what everyone was saying. That's my fairy girlfriend ;3

I got to her house at about 5 or 5:30. Took some pictures and then left for dinner.

We had dinner at the South Park Bar & Grill. Ordered some Ahi Poke as an appetizer, it was really good. I has a grilled salmon as the main course, Kat-chan had a sirloin steak. Dessert was a warm deep dish cookie topped with ice cream. Delicious. We also made it for Happy Hour :D

We didn't look too strange, all dressed up. There was probably one other couple there. Kind of surprising really. According to Kat it's supposed to be really busy there. The couple identified us as prom goers, that was kinda neat.

It was straight to prom after that. Prom was hosted at Hyatt Mission Bay Hotel. Nice and fancy. The food looked okay, I didn't have much though.

Everyone looked so nice ☆。☆ I'm glad I at least got the chance to say hi to everyone.

I mostly hung out with Kat through the whole night. We talked, with eachother, and with other people. That's what you do at these social events, I don't really go for the dance.

The selection of music was crappy. It was all rap and hip-hop. There was one instance of a hip-hop remix of Never Gonna Give You Up (that's right, Rick Astley's song). We didn't dance to that either.

I got Kat to dance to the last song of the night. It wasn't the slow dance I wanted, but whatever.

We left promptly after. I (my dad) drove her home. I said good night to her there and parted with her.

That was my night. It wasn't the most exciting, but if I could do it all over again, I probably would.

Time to go back to sleep, I got home at like 2 after all.

Ghost X

YouTube - GhostX Gameplay Movie

I just got my Game'N'Game newsletter announcing the opening of GhostX in english. Out of curiosity, I looked into it.

It looks awesome! That's some innovative battle system there, it looks like a lot of fun. I might give it a try, don't know how long I'll stick with it. It is only beta for now.

aaaah! Blue!

Well, my brother decided to do the laundry today. Great idea. He feels he needs to get things done as fast as possible so he can get back to his games, so he just pushed everything into one load and washed it. All of the colors and whites were mixed. You know what that means!

So all of my white shirts and socks are a weird shade of pale blue now. It doesn't look too bad (trying to be optimistic here) but it doesn't look too good either (there goes the optimism).

Can't wait 'til I move out. Don't have to deal with this anymore.

Tomy USA - Welcome to the World of Tomy!

Pangya PSP

It's the English release of Pangya PSP! It's finally got its own place on the Tomy site. The trailer isn't all that different from the Korean or Japanese trailers, save the logo.

I can't wait for it to come out, if I could pre-order I would.

Here's hoping we get some of the same goodies that Japan and Korea got, like the figurine or the PSP pouch
