  • Hey, happy birthday!

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Thanks for the well wishes and taking the time to come to my wall to say it Sunshine :D

  • Happy Birthday friend!

    Posted by Winnie

  • oh my gosh your new avatar. <3

    Posted by zoraluigi

  • CONGRATS XENO!!!! You’re gonna do great!

    Posted by Winnie

  • *poke* what's up friend? How have you been?

    Posted by Winnie

    • Hey Winnie! I'm doing alright; my life is pretty underwhelming haha. Been DMing a Pokemon Tabletop campaign, that's been awesome so far. Work stuff hasn't been working out, and classes are much harder to take seriously when they're online and free x_x Beyond that, been enjoying getting outside and listening to podcasts haha. Enough about me xD How's things for yourself?

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Aw man I’m sorry, I was hoping your work situation would have been looking up by now! Do you at least like your classes? Things are going well with me, just hitting the gym and trying to moderate my sweets intake haha! Besides that playing Hollow Knight is taking up my time!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Xeno you need to talk more during game night!!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Haha, I suppose it would help if I joined the call, but Monday! Probably! :D

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Yeah!!!

      Posted by Winnie

  • xeno vent

    Posted by Cody

  • Oh look! It's Blue!
    Hiya Blue!

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • I'm Blue ba ba de ba da do~

      It's funny, cause I've actually heard this character referred to with two names. Blue and Leaf. I suppose both are from Pokemon Red/Blue, but for me Blue has always been the Gary rival, so I call her Leaf :D

      Either way, how ya doing?

      Posted by Xenovent

    • I heard in the Pokemon manga she is Blue. So there you go! :cookiemonster:

      I'm doing great aside from leg tremors, which has been very annoying. But I'm getting meds for that soon. So hopefully that'll be fixed. Other than that same old; same old.
      How about you?

      Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Glad you're gonna be getting something for those, cause that sucks :/

      As for me, same ol as well. Classes finishing up this week, looking for some online courses for next semester. Leaf is at least partially inspired by my current obsession over Pokemon, as I've started running a Pokemon tabletop game which takes up a substantial amount of my free time (but I consider that a good thing haha) :D

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Is this tabletop game, a Din Game Night special, or something?

      Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Tabletop game, like Dungeons and Dragons, except fanmade and Pokemon. It's called "Pokemon Tabletop United," and while fairly complicated, it's been a ton of fun to GM :D

      Posted by Xenovent

  • cool new avi

    Posted by Chloroform

    • Thanks! :) It's "Leaf," the female trainer option from Pokemon LeafGreen. I spent a lot of time cutting out the character and adding the background, but I really wanted to celebrate Spring finally showing up somehow, and snowy kimono Hifumi wasn't gonna do it xD

      Posted by Xenovent

    • I thought she looked familiar although I havent really played leafgreen in ages. lol But yeah its a nice change of scenery altho i do miss Hifumi as your avi haha

      Posted by Chloroform

    • I just left a huge comment on your wall re:avvys, but I'm considering having a seasonal thematic avatar switch. So Hifumi is my winter one, Leaf is my Spring, I have a Fall picked out already, but I'm not sure what I'd do for Summer yet...

      Dunno if I'll follow through with the idea, but I know what you mean....it's a little weird not having Hifumi here :(

      Posted by Xenovent

    • if you dont mind me asking what Visual Novel were you referring to on your first avatar?

      Posted by Chloroform

    • One called "Umineko no naku koro ni," and the character was George. It was an interesting VN; very long, with great music and some really awesome scenes/story-arcs, but it was like Lost in its convoluted story-telling over time haha

      Posted by Xenovent

  • An isogete is a strange thing to proclaim yourself to be.

    Posted by Vulpes

    • It's certainly not meant to be taken very seriously :p It just comes from the fact that I enjoy reading into things.
      Also, a pleasure to make your acquaintance!

      Posted by Xenovent

  • Tri Force fell for the April Fools prank you gays pulled. lol He's all hyped and disappointed.

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Lol aw...I remember one of the comments we discussed was someone essentially saying "that's mean I really wanted this to be true and you're mean for getting me excited" xD

      Posted by Xenovent

  • (To avoid incurring the Wrath of Sol in the Din Embassy)

    I've been a Melty Blood fan since... ah... 2003? I suddenly feel a bit old. ^^;

    Got my wife, Scarly into it last year as well. :D

    Posted by Chel

    • Man, I first encountered Melty Blood..in high school, but I didn't start playing until college 2004ish, it was my first fighting game that I was serious with

      Posted by Xenovent

    • My first was Soul Calibur, with Melty as the second... which I got into more and more as better hacked together netplay clients became a thing, lol. I was a TINY BIT surprised when it came out on Steam.

      Posted by Chel

    • YEAH. I wanted to, but it's a lot of money and I didn't have too many people to play with. (Not to mention I'm just no good at competitive games)

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Sadly the Steam version's multiplayer is kinda dead, from what I've heard ;_;

      Posted by Chel

    • Aw that's sad. I'm guessing the sheild lady is your fav character? I tend to grow toward several characters.. I liked Akiha normal, Nanaya Shiki, and Len.

      Posted by Xenovent

  • Xeno how are you?! How’s your semester going so far?

    Posted by Winnie

    • Hey Winne! I'm hanging in. Job interview coming up and trying my hand at GMing which is satisfyingly eating up a lot of my spare time. Semester is going well, just had my midterm exam at 8 this morning actually lol. Class keeps getting pushed back from snow haha

      Posted by Xenovent

    • You’re going to do great at your interview!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Thanks! Here's hoping xD

      Posted by Xenovent

  • I figured it out. So smart

    Posted by Ty.

  • :3

    Posted by Cody

  • Just one wish, what is it?
    Tead.

    Posted by Tead

    • A job that I love, with a living income and enough freedom to grow as a human being outside of it :D

      Posted by Xenovent

  • I like this Aigis kimono pic as my avatar lol

    Totes Persona kimono buddies.

    Posted by Serenity

  • Xeno xeno vent vent, Xenovent~!

    Posted by PrinnyOfTime

    • Is that how I sound as a Pokemon? Because I think I've decided I'm an Ice/Rock type :3

      Posted by Xenovent

    • I approve! I was also just bored waiting for work so I decided to post something on your wall just because lol

      Posted by PrinnyOfTime

  • Hifumi is cute. There are so many cute girls in the Persona series especially P5 lol

    Posted by Serenity

    • Very true lol xD Almost a little unbalanced how many likable girl characters there are to likable guy characters, but hey, I ain't gonna complain!

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Boy romances in video games tend to be kind of boring considering how many games are centered for heterosexual men in mind.

      Posted by Serenity

    • True. Even taking that into account, the lack of cool male side characters is disappointing. Maybe I'm just in the same demographic of not paying as much attention to the cool guys as the cute girls, but even the cool guys I can think of from P5 didn't stand out very much. Oh well, here's hoping for a well-balanced P6!!

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Oh, as an aside though, I really did like the Garrus romance in Mass Effect 2, so I'm glad I can think of one xDD

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Reyes in Mass Effect Andromeda was arguably the best male romance in the ME series, since he wasn't some standard dude and was a "bad boy," you could say. Garrus was cute. Lol he's a dork. But femshep and Liada is imo the best overall.

      Posted by Serenity

  • What's your avatar from?

    Posted by Pennington

    • Persona 5 - this is one of the side characters Hifumi Togo :D

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Ah, shoulda guessed. I'll beat P3 one of these days >o>

      Posted by Pennington

    • You definitely should. P3 is a pretty awesome game. I'll admit I didn't enjoy the grind of "The Answer" arc/DLC/Expansion whatever you'd want to call it though lol. Dungeon crawling is much more fun in P5.

      Posted by Xenovent

  • Boo!

    Posted by Winnie

  • Where can I find this Japanesepod101 thing?

    Also. If I ever git gud with the language, I'd be down to chat with you.

    Happy belated birthday, by the way!

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Thanks Miku :3 Here's a link for JPod101 - japanesepod101.com/index.php. When I got my resources, I had signed up for a free trial, which let me download their audio library, I then made use of those afterward.

      Feel free to hit me up to practice chat whenever you'd like or if you have any basic questions (I've forgotten a lot, but I'm still around a beginner level ^_^;)

      Ganbatte nasai~

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Cool beans. I had to create a new email address, cause I forgot my password. >_>

      I looked in my Japanese dictionary, and I couldn't find, Ganbatte nasai. So what does it mean word for word?

      Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Pardon me for not being more precise, but "ganbatte" is the "te" form (the form for verbs to link with other words, hard for me to explain better right now xD) of "Ganbaru" meaning "to do your best" or thereabouts. "Nasai" is a gentle command suffix, so loosely translated as "Do your best!" or another very common equivocal translation "Good luck!"

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Arigatoo gozaimasu ni anatagata setsumei!
      (Or in eigo(Englsih))
      "Thank you for your explanation!"

      ^I spent around 15 minutes or so trying to piece that together, and it probably needs rearranging or changing. lol
      Let me know how it's suppose to be said.

      Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • I would probably rearrange that as "Anata no setsumei de arigatou gozaimasu" or "Anata[you] no [possesive particle] setsumei [explaination] de [from/for particle], arigatou gozaimasu [thank you very much]. Typically in Japanese, verbs are last and they play loose and fast with the necessity of subjects in sentences. They expect you to take a lot of the meaning of the sentence from context, to the extent that "Tabemasu" [to eat, present form] is a complete sentence, and you have to know from context if it means "I eat" or "she eats." That is all to say, in Japanese expect to reverse your sentences from what you would expect in English. So "For your explanation, thank you!" or "That delicious sushi roll, I want to eat!" (Ano maki wa tabetai!)

  • Happy Birthday! :D

    Posted by HarmonicalHero

  • Happy birthday buddy! Have a good one

    Posted by Chloroform

    • Thanks Chlo! You don't mind if I call you Chlo do you? lol

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Lol you can call me chlo,chloro, pichloro... i don't really mind at all! XD

      Posted by Chloroform

  • Hello Xenovent,

    I just wanted to get on over here and wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    How have you been?

    I hope that you have a wonderful Birthday,
    Tead.

    Posted by Tead

    • Thank you Tead! Been well. New classes have been good so far, and I'm enjoying life! How about yourself?

      Posted by Xenovent

    • New classes?! How dare they?!!

      Actually, new classes are nice! I would like to take some classes, but I opted to travel. I might consider online classes, but I am not certain I like that idea entirely.

      I am glad to here that you are enjoying life; I do not always enjoy life, but much of it is not bad for me currently.

      What are your Birthday plans? Anything exciting in the works?

      Enjoy your Birthday,
      Tead.

      Posted by Tead

    • Nothing too excited. Got a new video game and did homework today. Mom is making me a special dinner and then pie afterward. I'm not too fussy lol One of my classes is part online, I'll let you know if I like it, but I definitely like in person classes too.

      Posted by Xenovent

    • Aawww,

      How lucky for you, a double post; all this luck for you, and on your Birthday as well!

      I love double post! I really do; if someone has one anywhere, I try to reply to them both. If it is a subject that I like.

      So, double post much? LOL.

      Have fun Xenovent,
      Tead.

      Posted by Tead

  • Hey! You're going to do GREAT at your job interview! Is it scheduled?

    Posted by Winnie

  • Sorry about my post in Din's Community thread, I hear you were upset by that. It was suppose to be a light weight Trump joke, while still maintaining sincere thoughts. But at the same time I meant well. I should've at least offered a thoughtful statement after the joke, basically summing up to, "I know that's a real bummer. I'd be upset too, if my property was in any way gone like that.

    Just wanted to offer my apologies to you. And I feel you.

    ,Miku

    Posted by Amber The Gay Fox

    • Thanks for the apology, though I was more confused than upset (I didn't get the Trump reference lol - makes sense now), so I'm not sure who said I was. All the same, thank you for that and your sympathies :) I appreciate you reaching out.

      Posted by Xenovent

    • It's something forum mods say a lot, in Slack, for both depressing Trump news and for laughs. It's a thing. lol
      Also. Sol is the one that informed me that he deleted my post and told me that you were upset about it. Or so that's what I was gathered at least from the PM.

      Anyway, Just making ZU great again, one post at a time! See you around! <3
