Kibou – Rig of FailFebruary 5, 2009
Wow, it feels like I haven’t posted in forever…Maybe it’s because a lot of people posted last week, but whatever?!
Anyways, time for an extremely TRENDY, show off-y post! This is the rig post that everyone and their goats did a while back. Let me on that bandwagon already! I took pictures of both (the less fugly part of) my room and “my”…rec room. Kind of picture intensive, but really, I’m just lying!
Room of Doom
Say hello to my desk and bookcase, both from that Swedish giant named IKEA. I love both! (Not really…) Notice how the bookcase is all girly (Pink junk everywhere!) while the desk..isn’t (as much). This is what happens when one is too cheap to replace everything. Oh money, why am I so reluctant to spend you…If you are curious, that cut off poster in the middle is of B-wanted, some dumb shoujo manga series I used to be obsessed with. Eek.
y helo thar, Desk. This is where I sit in front of for extended periods of time. I used to never sit here…until I bought me that laptop. And wait, what are those pokemen doing..?!?! Most likely deletan my filez, pesky vermins. Or not. D: Also, that rack behind my laptop is where I keep all my homework, and the pile of junk beside the GBA SP is my “Now Reading” pile. It consists mostly of newspapers. Oh, and that…shelf (?) with the tissue box is for storing dictionaries, agenda planners, and bank statements. My Italian dictionary will be in there soon…
Ta-da, my bookcase! This shelf has little to do with vidya gaemz but obviously I wanted to show off. Last time I counted I had like…65 manga tankoubon there. This doesn’t include them manga magazines in the middle! Also, can you tell that I used to have a Nintendo Power subscription..? I really want to recycle them right now BUT I CANNOT.
Shelf contents (starting from top shelf):
1. Old teen novels, CDs, piggy bank full of HK monies, graphic calculator, failtrophy (I got this from graduating from Chinese school what…).
2. CLAMP manga collection (I don’t like them anymore ;A;), Sailormoon manga (hidden behind basket of more stuffed junk), more manga from my childhood, figure busts, Pikachu who used to be able to move/talk if you clapped but ran out of batteries.
3. Manga magazines (Hong Kong-ese equivalent to Nakayoshi), NP magazines, 900+ bookmarks, pencil bag of dried out pens.
4. More manga/light novels (series I don’t have more than 1-2 volumes of), books from Spain, playing cards, box of rocks, dumpling plush…(wat).
Bonus points to whoever can name name the CDs in the top shelf and/or find my copy of Senko no Ronde. :’D I’ll give out points for naming the most manga too. GO.
Aaaaaaaaand please don’t ask me why I have a book called “Names for Boys & Girls”.
Quite possibly the only vidya gaem-y thing in my room besides my DS! Here’s my entire GB/GBC/GBA collection ever! 40% of the bag consists of the GBA charger SO it is indeed at a Quite Pitiful status, but you don’t have to tell me that…
DUNGEON OF FUN
Wow, I don’t know if that title sounds ominous or interesting…maybe both. Anyways, this is a room in my basement. I spend my entire weekends in front of the Sony CRT TV. It is terrific! Funnily enough, the Gamecube is hooked up to the LCD TV, so when I preyed Custom Robo, I had it all widescreen and stuff, but honestly, I prefer playing games in that old Sony TV because MOTION BLUR GALORE on the LCD. I nearly got motion sickness from playing Tales of the Abyss on the LCD. Never again…The best part about this room, besides the presence of a PS2, is that armchair. I could curl up there for ages! (And be unable to walk, but that’s okay)
Sorry about the crappy writing on the big version of the picture…Text boxes are such a hassle! I’m aware that “now”‘s “n” looks like an “h”. How preyan ;A;
So this is the REAL rig. It’s a little pitiful, and kind of fail because I forgot to take a game box off of the PS2 before I took a picture…but oh well?! I’m not much of a veteran preyer, so I only have two consoles, the GC being my first ever UNhandheld platform. I let my brother use the consoles too, but really, both were MY birthday presents. What irritates me the most about my brother using it is that he plays a MILLION crappy games on the PS2. Last week he got Mountain Bike Adrenaline for $25. AHHHHHHH GOOD MONEY WASTED.
Here is my “collection” of games. (I dubbed it “Faillection”) It is extremely pitiful for 2 reasons: 1) It is tiny compared to most people on the Backloggery, and some of them are borrowed 2) It has a lot of crappy games. Names of the games here:
GC – Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, Mario Party 4, Animal Crossing, Tales of Symphonia, Baten Kaitos, Pokemon Colosseum (borrowed, defective), Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Custom Robo (borrowed), Super Smash Brothers Melee
PS2 – Persona 3:FES, Okami, Xenosaga Ep.I, Castle Shikigami II, Odin Sphere, Tales of the Abyss, Gran Turismo 4, Chu- (CANNOT…FINISH…TITLE), Persona 4, Heatseeker, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2, Mountain Bike Adrenaline.
Guess which ones are mine!
So yeah, that’s all the game-y stuff I have in my house…This post turned out longer than I expected, but hopefully it wasn’t THAT tl;dr. I already have an idea (or 15) for what to write on the next post but I am a slooooooooooooooowcat. UNTIL THEN, STAY TUNED.
