"I've heard legends of that person

How he plunged into enemy territory

How he saved his homeland

I've heard legends of that person

How he traveled the breadth of the land, reducing all he touched to rubble

I've heard legends of that person

I've heard legends of that person

Revered by many–I too, revere him

Feared by many–I too, fear him

Now, that person

Stands at my side

Now that person stands at my side

Now my friends are with me

Some of them were once heroes

Some, my mortal enemies

And as we face each other in battle, locked in combat

We shine ever brighter"

-Brawl theme song, translated.

Anyway, I haven't blogged in a while because I haven't really felt like it, much less had anything to talk about.

School is pretty much the same old crap it's always been, except me and some friends are going to start making some Pivot animations on Wednesdays and Fridays during the first bit of lunch. Other then that, a lot of things have been left unchanged. My math teacher's hamster is extremely obese. It can hardly walk.

OK, anyway, I decided to play Sonic and the Seven Rings or whatever again, and realized what a piece of crap that game really is. I admit parts are slightly addicting, but some levels are just WAY too hard. The controls are poor too, in my opinion. It should have been made like Sonic Adventure 2 in the sense that you have all around control, multiple characters, and.. Just, easier levels and all. The bosses in Seven Rings are just too hard and frustrating for me.

Anyway, I really like Brawl. It's a great game, and definitley an improvement of Melee. My only complaint about stages is that there are no N64 stages (I, however, made all those in the nice but too simple stage builder). Other then that, the stages are pretty good. The music, to say it was the best would be an understatement. Brawl has the best music EVER. I'm even listening to the OST (Official Soundtrack) right now. Character wise, no one was really left out. The only characters removed were either replaced by a very similiar character, or were simply a clone of an already existing character. (Though, Toon Zelda, Plusle and Minum, and Dr. Mario were considered when they were makign characters. And maybe others)

The Subspace Emmisary is another story. The storyline is epic. The person who wrote the storyline also wrote many of the Final-Fantasy storylines. Perhaps this is the reason why it's awesome? From fun gameplay, to easy-unlockable characters, to treats like stickers, trophies, and songs, to awesome cut-scenes. Some funny, some epic, some just to add to the plot. The only thing I hate is how Tabuu has that basically unavoidable 1-hit KO move, and some of the golden boxes (the ones you can only get once, that hold trophies, songs, and good stickers) are really hard to find. Hence, why I am at just 95%.

The way the trophies are stored is pretty cool. It isn't a big long list like the Melee one was, and the trophies are probably higher quality with improved information, and need I say there's definitley a lot more?

The thing that shows you how to unlock things is awesome. I forget what it's called though, but I have a lot of them. Only the hard ones left. Ugh.

Target Smash was a disapointment and cool at the same time. Each character had the same stage basically, leading to repetitiveness, but the 5 levels of hardness and the easy to memorize spots was good. Only thing I hate is the almost impossiible things, like doing the first one in under 15 seconds. Oh well.

Online play is OK. I win more then half the time, but soem say I abuse items. I really can't tell if I do-who's to say if it's unfair or not? Being judged is one reason why I don't fight people much. I prefer beating up level 9s or stuff like that.

And still pissing me off is the multi-man melee. I always seem to die almost before I'm done. I'm not even going to try most of those for a while.

Ok, enough of Brawl. I haven't been doing much else other then drawing comics in my free time. I have 27 pages of them, and I keep drawing them. Still haven't run out of ideas o.O. i gues this is it. Wow, looking back, this is one of my longer blogs. Oh well. Probably won't blog again till either my birthday (June 30) or after summer (Late August).

Oh, and I'm finally bored of Sapphire Tears. I no longer feel like I need more points at all. Oh well. I'm also kind of bored with Halo2, as not having Xbox live really shortens down what you can do.

You spelt your title wrong. You meant to say "Long time, no blog".
