Rule of Rose

I myself am a great fan of horror games and especially Japanese horror games (Resident evil, Silent Hill, F.E.A.R, Calling etc) and I can’t believe I didn’t come across this came earlier! Thanks to a friend of mine on Facebook I got to know “Rule Of Ros
e” (ルールオブローズ,) which is a Japanese horror game made by Atlus who I am not familiar with. But they decided to make this game for the PS II and it was published in EU on the 3 of November 2006 but due to some problems in the game the game was NOT released in the UK.

The Story (from wiki since I can’t give a review if I haven’t played the game, duh!)

Players control Jennifer, a young woman who is led to an abandoned mansion by a small boy. She follows the boy into the mansion's attic, and is led to a grave in the courtyard of the mansion. She digs up a coffin with a bloody sack inside it. Four children sneak up on her and pour water on her, before shoving her into it. She passes out, and awakes in an abandoned airship ruled by a cruel group of children known as the Red Crayon Aristocrats. Under the threat of death, Jennifer must appease the Aristocrats by finding an offering for them each month. While doing so, she must piece together clues and recall forgotten memories which will ultimately allow her to escape. Each chapter of the game is introduced with a storybook that loosely describes the characters and the theme that it's based upon, each with a specific time in which it took place.

Jennifer finds and grows close to Brown, a dog who comforts her while she endures the torment inflicted on her by the other children. The sickly Wendy grows jealous, especially as her friend spends more time with the dog. As the game continues, it is revealed after Jennifer was orphaned, she was cared for by Gregory Wilson, an unstable farmer who renamed her Joshua after his dead son. Wendy discovered Jennifer, initially mistaking her for a boy, and eventually convinced her to leave; she helped her escape, but not before taking the gun Gregory owned. The two renewed their promise of "everlasting, true love" and Jennifer's stuffed bear is exchanged for Wendy's brooch. Wendy then took her to the orphanage.

Later in the game, the setting changes from the airship to the orphanage after Jennifer retrieves the stolen teddy bear and is made a member of the Aristocrat club. Frustrated, Wendy forces her to choose between her own life or Brown's and frightened, Jennifer allows Brown to be killed. Afterwards, she slaps Wendy and casts aside her brooch, hating the Aristocrats and herself for being too cowardly to oppose them. After this, Jennifer replaces her as the leader and the tale of the Stray Dog is cast aside as Wendy's lie. Angered by Jennifer's love for Brown, Wendy brings Gregory, whom she trained like a dog to obey her, to the orphanage and the orphans are slaughtered by him. Wendy then commands him to attack Jennifer before leaving.

Halfway through the fight, Brown inexplicably returns to aid her. After Jennifer manages to subdue Gregory, she walks outside and discovers that the boy is actually Wendy in disguise. She confesses that she was wrong, and gives Jennifer the gun that they had stolen from Gregory before he snatches her into the house. After attacking Jennifer, he apologizes to her and commits suicide with the gun.

Reflecting on her previously forgotten memories, Jennifer reveals that after it was discovered she was the lone survivor of not only the orphanage massacre but the airship crash that was thought to have no survivors; the murders were pushed into an obscure corner of the newspaper. She makes peace with her past and vows to remember her friends.

The game has been talked a lot about due to some of the content in the game; animal cruelty, sexual themes, and bloody violence amongst pre-teens which had awaken the fury in some countries. England forbad it to be released since they thought that It might affect many youngsters in the UK and they saw the PEGI rating as to low (16). In my opinion I want to play the game merely for the fact of it being trashed really hard. Many gaming sites has giving it a bad rate based on the game play but still most of them like the story.

The graphic of the game is highly stylized and resembles Silent Hill a lot and to an extent, Resident Evil. I can’t help but seeing Ashley Graham (from Resident Evil 4) in her with the little round face and all. A major theme in the game is the difference between a child's and an adult's way of thinking and how children might treat adults if they were given power over them. Players are helpless to prevent their adult player-character from being bullied by the children. Another is how attachment "to one thing can bring out the worst in people." But all in all this is a game that I would love to play but sadly can’t since my old PS II is no more. I don’t crave the game enough to want to spend money on buying a new PS II merely for the purpose of playing RoR (and I’ve thrown out all my old PS II games, lol)

!!!WARNING!!! Many will find thsi a VERY mean thread, but I mean every word of it. I this means you won't be following my blog anymore I won't be mad, just don't troll me or write a hate comment as an anon for thats just low.

Im sooo fat! Look at me! Fat fat fat! And I weigh 50kg OMG! Isn’t it funny how everybody is obsessed with their, and everybody else’s, weight these days? I know it started back in the 80’s with all those fancy fitness places opening op everywhere, telling you you had to look healthy and slim. Too bad it’s escalated to a whole different level now. Now girls (well in my eyes) are being skinny simply for the cause OF being skinny, there’s no REAL reason for it. It’s not to be healthier or to lower their calories or even to get a normal bloodpreasure... it’s because the fashion industry and everyone affected by it crave that you starve yourself to the rim of death before you can rightfully call yourself beautiful. And this even accurse in the Lolita fashion world as well. I know many girls who hold the Japanese idolisation of the body as their “Thin-spiration” so they too can fit down into JSK with a waist of 65 cm. It’s somewhat sick! I know there are girls out there who are born thin and just can’t gain weight, I was one up and until I turned 20. I used to be a really small and skinny girl who could eat whatever I wanted without gaining so much as a few grams and look at me now! I just have to LOOK at a pie and I gain 5 Kg (just a figure of speech) and now it sickens me to see girls fall into the sick game of “Fashion says” where one step out of the ordinary may cost you other people’s social acceptance of who you are. I get angry when I see girls with anorexia and bulimia trying to blame the world for their troubles and condition. GIRL! You chose to participate in the “fashion says game” and you lost it! So stop making it everybody else’s fault simply because you couldn’t control your urge to look like frigging Kate Moss! It’s not beautiful no matter how much weight you’ll manage to loos you’ll always be ugly, I know this is rough and really bithcy to say but please, have you looked at an anorectic girl lately? No? Well you should. Their skin is unnaturally pale, they got bag under their eyes or petruding eyes, their skin seems older and you can see every friggin bone in their body! I know all of you at there would scream into my head and say “HEY! Those poor girls have a problem they can’t control! SO stop being an ass, bitch” No I won’t. This is not me being butt-hurt over thin girls, this is me being angry with them for letting their body rot away due to some stupid ass dream and a sad try to try and control what little they have left in their lives, their eating habits. I myself had a classmate once who suffered from anorexia and I just couldn’t find her to be pretty in any way and I always wondered what made her adopt this insane though of needing to lose weight at an alarming rate... Mostly it’s a sort of defensive mechanism triggered in the brain when you loos control over your life to make you feel, like mentioned before, that you can still control one thing. I won’t say I’m sorry for writing this for I’m not. A lot of those girls can’t see that they have a eating disorder and mostly they won’t accept people trying to help them, or in their world, hindering them from gaining their dream weight. But one thing I really hate with these kinds of girls are those who write about it to everybody they know, on Twitter, facebook, MySpace, Tumblr you name it. If you do so you don’t just make it your own problem, you make it EVERYBODY'S problem and you pull them into your web of constant despair over being “fat” and that your life sucks! Stop it. If you have to tell everybody you know expect people to comment on your whiny, sad-ass, my-life-is-a-living-hell, because-my-parrents-and-docter-don’t-get-my-problems blog, with some really harsh and maybe even mean comments, but hey that’s life! Stop disrespecting your own body and stop being naive and stupid enough to fall for the “skinny twig girl” trap that the fashion industry is laying out for you to fall right in. You are beautiful as your normal self, not as a thin borderline girl who has zero control over herself or her life. Really girl! Love yourself for who you are because even though you reach your dream weight you will still think you look fat when you see yourself in the mirror. If you can’t accept who you are then how do you expect the world to do it?

Liek omg!

Before anyone comments on my miss-spelling it's meant to be spelled "liek" and not "like" ;D
Okay, so, Me and my BF finally move into our new apartment and it’s SO great! There’s kids everywhere (who can be noisy at times) but mostly it's a nice a quiet area we live in. It took a while for us to move into the apartment, mostly because we STILL have a few boxes in our old and still got some junk to throw out before we can rightfully say that we have moved out for good. It’s all slowly coming toget
her now and we still wish for new furniture’s. For the first couple of days in our new place we did not have a fridge since my dad wasn’t able to transport it over to our new place, so we had to live on noodles and stuff that wouldn’t go bad outside the fridge. But after 4 days you grew tired of it. Anyway we have begun the work on making the old place look nice, which means; Cleaning, re-painting, repairing and what not so that it will end up looking really neat again. I must say I’m glad we moved away from there. We have had nothing but problems with the old apartment. moisture, mold, cracking paint (because we had a shower in the bedroom and there was poor ventilation even with open windows), a bad window in the bathroom that kept the rain out but weren’t isolated and therefore the heat slipped out during winter, a crooked stove which warmed unevenly, it was all on two floors and, last but not least, the apartment itself was uneven (since it was very old)... Our landlord wasn’t good at getting things orderly when we asked him about it. It took him three years to patch up the holes on the house facade, which gave us mold in our living room. He didn’t fix the radiator which a blacksmith had after we had told our landlord that none of our radiators would warm up a winter. One senses clearly that he only has these three apartment (ours being on of them) so that he can earn a little cash. It lies under the Danish Standards for what one should live in. .. But hey, out of sight out of mind, right? ( ̄- ̄ )

People kept telling us that they just couldn’t understand that he could to let us stay in the apartment, with all the mold that was there. It might easily have made us sick and even caused me to develop my asthma again. We tried many times to keep the worst down, but it came back and now it has left some rather ugly stains on almost every wall in the apartment ガ━━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━━ン!!

Now we started to put the old apartment into a position so that it will hopefully end up being more habitable for the next tenants. The worst thing about it is all the sloppy with the paint work done around the place ... and the funny thing is that our landlord is trained master painter. But at least we’ll hopefully end up making it better than he did. We make sure to use something proper paint, which can reject water and will hold for a couple of years. It’s nice to have an uncle whose father is a master painter too, and a stepdad who was previously vice-chairman of a housing association, so he knows what we should repair and what we shouldn’t repair.

Hopefully we end up getting a super nice apartment at the end. Enough about the old apartment. I just started on Food College here on August 2 and it has been some really good two weeks already. We started with two introductory weeks where we had to try different kinds of workshops. Each intro-team had to make a little bit of food for the final, and huge, intro-buffet for every intro-team where was. When we had eaten and cleaned up after us we were distributed out into different groups which matched what we wanted to become later on. I’m going to be a backer so I’ll be attending a backer team. Can’t wait to start my education as a backer and hopefully, later on, a pastry chef! On Monday I’ll be starting my actual education O(≧∇≦)O

My team will first be getting our schedule on Monday and awarded a contact-teacher who will guide us if we have problems, or can’t show up to class. I've even got me two uniforms and a pair of shoes that I MUST wear every day at school. The teachers aren’t allowed to let us into the bakeries without us wearing our uniforms, due to hygienic reasons, of course. And I must say I really fancy my uniform! I have already learned how to bake the first couple of things. Baguettes, Danish brunsviger cake, cinnamon, buns, Swiss roll and biscuits. I am simply crazy about having to train as a baker! I love being inside the bakeries. I will say that I am sorry for the lack of entries lately. I’ve been super busy with the moving and my education so for that I am sorry

m(_ _)m ゴメンナサイ

Until next time darlings, have fun (^ _ ^)/~~サヨナラ
