My name is Jessica. I’m very dear friends with Val, and an acquaintance of GG Crono’s. Been into games since I was four years old (think late 80s); been a huge RPG fool since I was ten and a half, though I’ve been less and less active in the actual act of gaming for the past eight years or so (I’m very slow to adapt to 3D action games; and RPGs these days do not give me confidence). In the meantime, I’ve been more and more obsessed with movies of various ages, nationalities and colour palettes; as Val could easily tell you. And because I’d much rather watch a movie than play a game on a console (can’t help it; I sit down in front of a TV and its movie time), my gaming tends to be emulator focused or portable focused lately, and it tends towards old games.
hey Jess. GLad to see you decided to join. I can vouch for her, guys, she’s a good egg. Just a bit too nerdy even for me sometime. oh, and yeah, she’s a girl… or at least, plays one so convincingly I can’t really tell. Either way.
When you say “movies,” what kind of movies are we talking? Like… Seven Samurai or Legally Blond or Eraserhead or does it matter (sadly enough, I enjoy all three of those movies, as different as they are <_<; )?
Also, welcome to RPGC. I hope you have a good time, and stuff. Check out the Food of the Day thread, or engage in an argument of some sort.
I was just about to make a jokingly ridiculous comment about how Eraserhead and Legally Blonde weren’t altogether different. Then I thought about joke justifications. And now I’m just horrified at how similar they are.
I guess, what I’m trying to say is, I am never, ever, having a baby with Reese Witherspoon. Under. Any. Conditions.
Welcome, Jessica. Any friend of Val’s (and GG’s!) is A-OK with me too. And there’s nothing wrong on preferring movies over RPGs. RPGC is more of a cool international hangout that a game forum anyway. Though you can still find out useful game stuff here, such as which RPGs may be of your liking. Check out the various sub-forums too. Hope you have a good time!
When I say “movies”, I mean, give me a year past 1920, and I can name at least five movies from that year I’ve seen; from as many different nationalities and varying lengths as possible.
…not to brag x.x Its just how I turned out! …and I keep a list.
Ehh, don’t get too excited, please ^^; I’ve only played through it four times, and I still haven’t beaten the bonus dungeons on the GBC version!
Also, Val lies. I try very hard to be as non-feminine as possible. But when I say things like “its 8:30; time to go to bed; doctor’s orders!” and “no, I don’t own any music CDs” and “…oh! I get it now. That joke you told me yesterday?”, being female is the only thing that keeps me socially acceptable.
Yes, I have seen Wings of Desire. Its been a looong time, but it was a beautiful movie. I understand there’s a new DVD of it coming soon!
Umm…one of my favorite directors is Georges Melies. I just love the sheer, unmatched creativity in his films, coupled with their simplicity. His work is timeless to me; despite how dated the technique. I also like Buster Keaton, Michael Powell, Mario Bava, Jan Svankmajer, Yasujiro Ozu, and Vincente Minnelli…its really hard to decide.
