The official cards in CAH tend to be ghastly and offensive, but the game concept is sound.



With contributions from Mintywolf, I've created a large Final Fantasy themed deck. I've also created a smaller "mundane" deck because sometimes mixing fandom and real life can be entertaining. Both are PG, about the same rating as Final Fantasy games: no sex, no swear words, no offensive humor-at-the-expense-of-marginalized-groups jokes.

We tried to beta test them Saturday, but the third-party server that hosts custom games was overloaded with too many players and kept timing out.

So we're going to try again Monday afternoon. Not quite sure of the time yet, but I'll try to post a half hour warning here and elsewhere before I post the link to the room.

More suggestions for cards welcome. I don't suppose there's a limit, although I haven't checked.

this is NSFW. But I'm sure you'll get more out of it than I have since you can read the captions, whereas I only know the lyrics of the original zany song. (Yatta!)



I'm tickled by all the obscure cameos from FFI-V near the end, (Maria! Minwu! Faris! Lenna! Desch!) plus more recent folks like Sazh.

And Mr. Chupon. O.o
auronlu: (phear da crack)
Everybody get over to Sev's journal for a glorious Final Fantasy commentfic attack. She had stress today and called for minific prompts, and has been writing brief snippets of fic to everyone's insane prompts, and there's a full-on brainstorming session of Ashelia the Vampire Slayer happening over on one comment, and Auron is giving everyone (even Quistis!) detentions in another comment, and I don't quite know what's happening with that dolphin but I'm not going to ask... Er. Anyway. Go join in. Whatever fandom you love, it's there somewhere in small bite-sized bits. Or just add to the brainstorming and general crack.
auronlu: (ffiii)
Aside: I was tempted to call this episode "Oh. Okay." in honor of Sev's recurring response to all the WTF incidents during her playthrough of Final Fantasy III.

However, it turns out there is a supreme moment of WTFery involving a sheep in this episode, so... just keep Sev's Mantra in mind.

Off we go with Desch the Fifth Party Member (uh oh, we know where THIS is going) to find the Gnomish Village! Poor Arc is hoping he won't have to use the Mini Spell...

Arc protests Mini Spell

Now let us roam as sheep. )

While watching the prologue of The Hobbit, there was one unexpected item which caught my eye.

SALARTA JUST REVIVED [livejournal.com profile] capslock_ff WITH A GOOD DISCUSSION

THERE ARE SO MANY WORDS OF WISDOM

BUT I NEED TO PRESERVE THIS QUOTE FOR POSTERITY

ON FARIS IN FFV:

I THOUGHT FARIS WAS A GIRL IN THE BEGINNING OF FF5, AND WAS SO CONFUSED WHEN EVERYONE KEPT CALLING HER "HE."

THE REVEAL WAS KIND OF A, "OH BUTZ YOU ARE REALLY STUPID AREN'T YOU, SHE IS LIKE SIXTEEN PIXELS HIGH TO ME AND I NOTICED" MOMENT.

 I've found this (scroll down past the comic book characters) and this. Any more?

Or would anyone like to contribute a ponified send-up of their favorite Final Fantasy scene or characters?
auronlu: (Blitzball)
 Just ran across this screencap I took the last time I played FFX. I always have to stop and talk to this kid to find out his latest career choice (it changes throughout the game):

While I have somewhat tacky taste, I comfort myself that I've seen far worse in some of the old properties my friends have bought.

However, I think the following ... whatever it is... beats out even the Bucolic Horror wallpaper (with faux plastic ivy) in HoRD and the Screaming Yellow Roses (with cherubs) that originally graced my guest bedroom in my parents' house. 

A RL mafioso's idea of luxury living

 Somehow, I'm imagining Rufus Shinra sprawled in the chaise lounge dispensing orders to minions while Reno amuses himself tossing spitballs at the mosaic when the boss isn't looking.

...the worst science fiction show ever made. I loved it very much when I was six years old.

I had a lousy 24 hours, and I need me some Goldar. This episode is missing a monster in a rubber suit [MOLE-A-SAURUS!] but I guess it'll suffice.



Scarily, I can't tell that this was a thirty minute episode chopped down to 3.

Okay, that's enough stupid. I feel better now.

THE CAPSLOCK_FF COMMUNITY IS CELEBRATING A VERY FINAL FANTASY CHRISTMAS

AURON'S BROUGHT THE EGGNOG 

WHAT WILL YOU BRING? CLICKY LINK TO JOIN THE PARTY: 

HO. HO. HO.

auronlu: (Engrish)
Sissy, this is for you. I'm not quite sure what it is, but I thought it would make you smile.

... is a bunny-woman-in-a-mech-outfit, probably from some sexist anime or video game.

However, it made me hoot with delight when I saw those words appear on the list of eBay commissions made through my webpages this week.

RABBIT WAFFLEBUNNY!!!!!

I'm going to file it right next to BASTARD TOADFLAX, my other all-purpose nonsense curse.

 

(I told you I'm easily amused by stupid things.)


auronlu: (FF5)
I love this game. It makes me giggle. It goes along being a classic old 8-bit D&D spinoff video game, and then suddenly the script writer gets bored and throws in a hint of Terry Pratchett.

I feel compelled to make a userpic with one of the zany villain battle quotes.
auronlu: (Bobblehead Night)
Fandom, sometimes I love you.


A Dissidia (PG) fanart for your perusal...

YATTA! meets the guys of Final Fantasy (click thumbnail for full-sized):




Starring:
Squall in his usual "whatever" pose, "Butz" and his pasties, Cloud, Warrior of Light, Firion, Tidus and a speedo, Cecil, Gabranth,
Onion Knight, Zidane

Alas, I have no idea which artist did this magnificent piece of work. It's floating around the internets, and appears to have a Japanese provenance.

There needs to be a Yatta! Final Fantasy songfic to go along with this fanart, don't you agree?

"It's so cheesy.... emo angst puppy...."
auronlu: (Kimahri!Crack)
Every now and then I run across one of these videos where someone's broken into a game and hacked it in hilarious ways, usually by swapping one sprite for another or by giving the abilities of one monster to another.

This one takes the cake. Lulu, WHERE ARE YOU GOING with that dingo?!!! The explosive fart at the beginning of her battle move is also...special.

Question.

Q: Am I the only KH2 player in the entire universe who didn't notice that the obligatory Squeenix bishie villain's name is an anagram of MANSEX?



THEY DID THAT ON PURPOSE, DIDN'T THEY?!

They snuck in Auron's sake bottle as a decoration on Sora's equipment after Disney nixed it on Auron's character design.

DO NOT MEDDLE IN THE AFFAIRS OF SCRIPTWRITERS, FOR THEY ARE CANNY AND WILL SPOOF YOUR DIRECTIVES.

Please to be moving drinks away from the computer. Mr. Vin Scully himself just interrupted his silver tongued sportscasting to recommend this...

If you know Latin:

Arca Salvii by Lysimache (X-rated)

The tags/label say it all:

Cambridge Latin Course | Tags: Gaius Salvius Liberalis/Quintus Haterius Latronianus, BDSM

Yes, they're slashing a couple of characters used in lessons in a Latin textbook. I'm not familiar with the characters, but...SNERK.

Alas, my Latin is so rusty I had to resort to the (attached) translation.
