Hello there beautiful people. I'm the Flying Lion. I'm a writer, an artist, a reader, an indulger of awesome, and I carry a tiny lion in my pocket. I like to draw a lot, usually I'm inspired by my favorite anime, games, shows, movies, and other. I also love taking photos of the world around me and of my adventures.

Interests
  • Mood: Relief
  • Listening to: Caffiene
  • Reading: Jurassic Park
  • Watching: RWBY
Today I learned American, Japanese, and Chinese food can go well together. A belly full of streak, string beans, bread, fried rice, pork dumplings, coconut shrimp, and ramen can attest to this.

I also learned one can use both chopsticks and fork and knife in one sitting.

Honestly today was long. Started out fine watching my RWBY Blu Rays before I decided to go bargain hunting. Only to learn the store having s sale on movies was actually selling every thing for full price... And having every movie misprinted. Example? I would find movies prices at three bucks and then be told they're actually 29 or even forty dollars. It's not outrageous but it's insulting to be drawn in thinking you're getting a bargain only to be kinda jipped.

The entirety of the rest of the day prior to my large dinner was spent studying. American history can require that. Other free time was spent reading Jurassic park or doing other chores. My weekends thus was relatively... long.

Hopefully I'll get to posting the mini show discussions.  I just haven't been on my regular computer for a week and I rather like having extended break time from it. Also I've been trying to hang out with people more like relatives I actually care enough for that I just don't spend enough time with. We're all busy but spending time with people you do like or are just fun is really worth it.

Oh and my supply of snickers and twix have run out. I bring that up because I had gotten a rather large sum of funds and thought why not live a little? I decided to treat myself to candies in bulk. The thing is I only ever eat candy once every few days. So my supply lasted around two months.

Now I miss my candy. Well I don't miss the bad health effects. But I'm human. And I'm American. I do have a sweet tooth and a taste for snickers  and twix.

Speaking of chocolate il writing fics. One in particular is dear to me for how silt it is and how returning to form it is. Basically: Lucario and Solid Snake go to the DMV. No more shall be said. Other than I'm returning to my roots with fics.

This might seem random, but... what are your thoughts on Raiden? From the Metal Gear series.

Raiden? Hm... I haven't played the Solid series or Rising: Revengeance in a while. But I do get Raiden, he's a cool character with his own issues than that of Snake. Snake is my fav Metal Gear character but Raiden is a close second. Especially cyborg Raiden since in later games he gets upgraded and his story becomes tragic.
Particularly Raiden as he is in Sons of Liberty is relatable. He's kinda a dork and not as cool as Snake is then but I don't dislike him. I did like his relationship with his girlfriend Rose in that game. Something about the banter between the two felt natural, reminded me of a real relationship. Also it's a contrast to Snake who for the most part doesn't try to find love as opposed to Raiden who kinda does. There's also a big New York theme to Raiden in Sons of Liberty that I liked. He's not from New York but they incorporate the culture of the city to his character a bit in the game.
Raiden in MGS4 is a different story. IN that game he becomes kinda like Snake, more tortured and more serious. He's also fricken cool as a "cyborg ninja" learning new techniques for survival. He's really zen. What I love in this game though is Snake tries to convince Raiden not to be like him. "Don't waiste your youth fighting" he tells Raiden, especially since unlike Snake Raiden has a chance at a happy ending. That theme in the game is awesome to me.
By Rising Raiden is still a warrior but he's chill. Much more so than the prior games. It's also cooler because Raiden doesn't angst. He gets mad but he takes a stance closer to a superhero. Also his sword play in the game is really refined. He is actually a lot like a samurai, minus the cyborg part. He's the most fun I'm this game.
... And yeah. That's what I think of Raiden. In short he's goofy and fun, bad ass with a sad journey. But he doesn't let it big him down. He moves forward like a hero.

I've only recently bought a PS3, so these old games are new to me. :XD:
Actually, after watching my sister play through the Revengeance game, I really liked Raiden. And I was surprised to mostly see a really negative reaction to Raiden on the Internet. (Well, I haven't looked too much, but what I did see was surprising.) I wondered what you thought because you tend to have a more fair and complete assessment of characters.

I also liked Sam, but my favorite by far is Blade Wolfy. :meow:

Oh if you just got a PS3 and don't have much games might I recommend the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection? There's also the "Legacy" Collection with all the games from Metal Gear 1 to MGS4 but it's more expensive. Plus you could get the HD Collection for less and the original Metal Gear Solid for like ten bucks through... uh, digital... I'm blanking out. The system how you can get games digitally on a Playstation.

I ended up getting the HD Collection and MGS4. Lots of fun. But I don't play them everyday, maybe like once for however many days I feel like then stop. Well I do that with all the games I play. MGS4 and the HD Collection are a lot of fun considering you can get them for relatively low costs.

People disliked Raiden because he was made to be "bishounen". Also he was the first new protagonist who wasn't Snake and people felt an attachment to Snake. As years went by though Raiden has gotten more character development and more heart. I love the fact Snake encouraged him to have a family and not take his same path. There's something endearing about that that I love from Raiden and Snakes story.

I can never find Bladesolfs action figure but I so want one. Also Sam is cool especially since he's a foil to Raiden, he loves war an doesn't hide the fact. Him really trying to get Raiden to admit that he's not totally a hero was one of my favorite aspects of Rising. And Sams theme was so awesome!
