Today is Pretty Much Tops

Today was an awesome day!  It is the top contender for best day of 2012 so far.  Take note, months August to December.

Reasons why today was awesome:
  • A couple of us from work went out to lunch at this out-of-the-way ramen place we'd heard about. It is the best ramen I have ever had, seriously, it was even better than Ajisen Ramen, the broth was heavenly, I can still taste the memory~!
  • We had free Krispy Kreme donuts at work!  I don't know why.  Maybe to make up for that kerfluffle the previous week where the studio thought we were closing down for a whole twenty minutes.
  • THEATRHYTHM came out.  aslkfjlaskjflkasjdflksajfd  It is sitting it my hot little hand as I wait for 3DS to recharge.  This is me gone for the next month.  Which is bad, as I have cosplay deadlines.
  • I have a stack of new manga to read!  *___*  Viz has been stockpiling it, or something.  My order bag at the comic shop was full to bursting.
  • I got to play DJ Max!  Any day where I get to play DJ Max is better than average.
  • The grocer by the bus stop had my favourite chocolates on sale!  \o/  Also, I finished the transaction exactly thirty seconds before the bus arrived!  Totally boss.
Pretty much the only way it could have been better is if I got to sleep in.  But that's what tomorrow is for.

The weekend is thus now looking awesome.  Have to clean house for a rental inspection, but otherwise it's looking like a glorious stretch of Theatrhythm, cosplay-making, fic-writing and manga-reading.  In fact, I don't know why I'm on LJ right now.  I have things to do!

Theatryhthm!!!! I got a chance to play it on my friend's console the other day and I really want to get it!! But I have no 3ds.... Gradually building up reasons (ie. games) why I should get a 3ds. It is almost time. lol.

And sounds like you had a really awesome day!!!

Get one!
Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright (whenever that comes out)!
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask!
Level 5's Time Travellers!
Also holy crap they're making a Super Smash Bros for it. As well as all the other awesome Nintendo staples! \o/

I should just throw this link at you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_3DS_games

...granted a good chunk of this list isn't out yet. But hey, any one of those were a system-seller for me. Everything after that is a bonus. *Shoulder devil*

Lol. I know there's lots of good games but like you said, most of them aren't out yet. so i figure, there's no point buying the console before the games are out. cause it'll just end up sitting there unused. (and it'll be cheaper the longer i wait. haha.)

You've pretty much listed most of the ones I want! and kingdom hearts dream drop distance.

What's time travellers? if it's level 5... i'm interested. :D

Being an owner of a 3DS, I'm just going to throw out some great titles that are out.
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Cave Story 3D
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Tales of the Abyss 3D
Mario Kart 7
Pokemon Rumble Blast
Devil Survivor: Overclocked

aside from Devil Survivor, I own the others myself~ and I prefer the 3DS version of ToA to the PS2 version! Ocarina of Time also got a major overhaul.

Time Travellers is exactly as advertised. It's a Level 5 game about some Time Travellers. I am ridiculously excited.

Ooo, yes! How did I forget that one?

LOL, fair enough. Well then, it's only a matter of time!
Jul. 6th, 2012 02:47 pm (UTC)
i want to play it too, but no 3ds yet~ still deciding on the investment since i've not really been gaming as much since i started working.

lol love the gif~
Jul. 7th, 2012 03:56 am (UTC)
Know the feeling. It was a worthwhile investment for me as portable gaming is what I seem to do the most of since I started working - all that public transport time. :) Is your commute very long?
Jul. 7th, 2012 08:27 am (UTC)
depends? it's takes about 30ish mins by bus on a good day. it's just that i have a bit of a walk from the bus to home and vice versa so i try not to carry too much =D;
Jul. 6th, 2012 05:43 pm (UTC)
Oh man, I love Theatrhythm so much thus far. Already have 15,000 Rhythmia on my file. And have bought all the DLC. NO I'M NOT A MUSIC ADDICT, NEVER~ 0>8D

ANYWAY, glad to know you're having a better day than I. xD
Jul. 7th, 2012 03:57 am (UTC)
Whoa! And it hasn't even been out very long. XD Although, um, I maybe hit 3,000 Rhythmia just last night. And will be buying that DLC almost certainly.

Sorry to hear your day wasn't as awesome, maybe today will be better? :D
Jul. 8th, 2012 06:35 pm (UTC)
Yeah, though I also had the benefit of the US's release date being a few days earlier, heh. ^^; Granted, the number'd probably be higher if it weren't for the ridiculously long shifts I've had this week at work, but still. :V

Well considering I spy a Beloved update, I'd say so~ well apart from our internet being cut off the other night AGAIN gdi *headdesk* Worst 24hrs ever.
Jul. 6th, 2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
This is the first I've hever heard of that game. Tell us if it's any good!

And you are on here cause your lj is full of people who can realise exactly what kind of awesome a day like that is made of. Oooh, I wish I had a ramen place in town!
Jul. 7th, 2012 04:00 am (UTC)
:O Seriously? I've only been gushing over it for months. Although it doesn't seem to have received much marketing overseas. Tentative impressions are favourable!

No ramen places?! I complain about local food a lot, but I forget sometimes that our proximity to asia and all the ex-pats in the cities mean we get some awesome specialist places.
Jul. 7th, 2012 06:56 am (UTC)
No ramen places. My city's touted locally as 'the mexican food capital of the world' even though we're not in mexico. Bleeeeech. Low quality cuts of meat, generally, covered with too many spices so you can't taste it.

One actual japanese food place, one vietnamese, one thai, and the rest mexican. WHY DO I LIVE HERE?
Jul. 7th, 2012 09:36 am (UTC)
LOL. Well, at least you can be proud of something? To be fair, when Mexican food is good, it's fantastic... but when it's as you describe, notsomuch. (Kind of the same as Japanese food really. We have a lot of Japanese restaurants, way too many to count, but probably only ten percent of them are any good. The other ninety... :/)
Jul. 6th, 2012 10:22 pm (UTC)
Hee, that's so great, all these little things stacking up and making a fantastic day. I'm happy you're happy~ Enjoy your day!
Jul. 7th, 2012 04:01 am (UTC)
Thanks~! I hope you have an awesome day too~
Jul. 7th, 2012 04:13 am (UTC)
I revel in your happy day!
Jul. 7th, 2012 05:35 am (UTC)
Spread the joy!
Jul. 7th, 2012 02:41 pm (UTC)
lol love the Tangled gif. Grats on the best day! Wish those would happen around here a little more often <3

What manga are you reading? I'm in the process of re-reading mine as I haven't been able to find anything new lately that I've been interested in enough to read.
Jul. 7th, 2012 03:43 pm (UTC)
Naruto still. D.Gray Man. Natsume Yuujinchou. Nothing really new at the moment. :( Bakuman has finished so... I'm kind of in the same position, treading water manga-wise at the moment. Maybe we've just become pickier or something.
Jul. 7th, 2012 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oh Theatrhythm. Surprisingly short. You beat the game at 10,000 points, and all that's left for me to do is get the DLC (must. buy. points.) and Chaos Notes.
Also, I love the randomized phrases at the beginning of the music stages. I have Warrior of Light as my leader and his phrases make him sound like he's fighting for Chaos. Always going "for Chaos!" "...for Chaos?" "for idiots!" and stuff. He makes me laugh so hard. And Cloud is constantly talking about friendship. I love it.
Jul. 8th, 2012 08:59 am (UTC)
What, at 10,000 points? I'm almost there already! Well, rhythm games are all about mastering the technique anyway I guess. That's not looking like it will take too long though, Basic Course is disgustingly easy and even Expert mode is easy to pass first try...

LOL, that is cool! Cloud is constantly turning everything into a question on mine. And Cecil keeps talking about revenge! I think my favourites might be their little level up phrases. Somewhat incongruous with celebration....

Theatrhythm looked really cute but it's too bad it's on the 3DS. I will never buy a 3DS because it is a stupid piece of poop made of poop and stuff, and I think Nintendo made a horrible mistake in making it. I get terrible motion sickness and the one look I had at the 3DS I had made me want to lose my lunch all over Gamestop's floor. (And people are like oh you can turn off the 3D option and I'm like what, so I can drop $150 for a glorified DS? No thank you.)

I suppose I'll just wait until emulation gets really awesome and play it on an emu instead. XD Screw the 3DS.
