Hellgate London Launch - 31st October 2007

warning: fair number of photographs


Today I was in the Courts doing research (and waiting to join my brother at the Hellgate Launch later) when a_songfor_xx and I discovered we were BOTH in the vinicity! She was at the launch much earlier than I, and I was WAIT WAIT OMG DON'T LEAVE BEFORE I COME. XD I must say it is DAMN HARD to work when one is thinking WHEN CAN I LEAVE OMG WHEN CAN I LEAVE BUT I did it!

:D When I was DONE I got to rejoin the sibling and the sensei at the launch! :D They had a really cool Jeep parked OUTSIDE the mall, and what I think was an attempt to replicate Big Ben:



AND THEN:



And after which there was much Oh The LOL when, sensei in tow, we came back to the car to find it FLANKED BY TWO POLICE CARS. Oh officer, I know I've been a bad, bad boy.

So we kidnapped sensei home! And then we proceeded to DISCOVER HELL ON EARTH. You can customise characters when you play this game, so there was a WHOLE LOT OF LAUGHTER when we were customising my brother's character, along the lines of, "WHERE IS THE ADOLF HITLER MUSTACHE?!" and "OH MY GOD HE LOOKS LIKE VAN NOW!" - and that was for the FACIAL HAIR alone. You can choose between six different character types, then between males and females, and then you can customise hair colour, height, bulk, hair, mustaches (or lack of). OMG

Then sensei and I went off for waffles where I cheerfully overdosed on sugar, and we watched tiny little Halloween kids trick-or-treating. SO ADORABLE. ♥







they say the world will end in FIRE





making headlines all around the world!

More launch photos here and here!

The box states: WANTED: 10 MILLION GAMERS FOR THE ALLIANCE. *LAUGHS*





welcome to hell on earth

this billboard SCARED ME. MOMMY ~



short notes:

Switching back to the Abyss layout for THIS post! ;) How to switch back. Hate the custom interface, prefer it the old-fashioned (and more elaborate) way.

icons of the day
heaven & hell

or the angel & the devil on your shoulder.

??? WTF Is Hell Gate? O_O Looks like a cross between Star Wars and Darker than Black.
31st-Oct-2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
I'd put it closer to the Darker Than Black side of the scale than Star Wars, though the weaponry is certainly more SW. Here's the Hellgate London official site! Naturally the Wiki entry says more: the premise is that a gate to hell opens up in London, and the earth gets overrun by demonic creatures. ;) FUN FUN FUN. The game gives me lots of happy flashbacks because it is set in ACTUAL London locations, with real landmarks and places. You start the game RIGHT WHERE I first stayed in London, so it makes me HAPPY. ♥

*HUGS* wai wai wai.

also. CHASE ICON LOVE! ^_______^
1st-Nov-2007 02:38 pm (UTC) - GREETINGS FROM THE WOMBAT APPRECIATION SOCIETY
XDDD!!! I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THE CHASE ICON LOVE. I have SO MANY of Chase icons, by other icon makers, and I love all of them! ♥

HEEEE. ♥ SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HERE ~
31st-Oct-2007 02:15 pm (UTC) - I spy, with my little eye, a labcoat! XD
Yay for you managing to celebrate Halloween! :)

OMG you bought Hellgate? *covets*

And, srsly, WTF is up with the cheesecakes? They don't look halfway dangerous enough! More blood and gore and 'TUDE (and possibly tattoos), plz!
1st-Nov-2007 02:49 pm (UTC) - and a really bad tie! ;)
Yay indeed! *hugs!* It would have been EVEN BETTER had you been there! ♥!

My brother bought Hellgate! ;) It's very much like Diablo, really, and works much along the same principles when it comes to moving around and doing things. What I love best about it is that it's set in REAL London geography, so it's really funny when my brother strategizes how to go and where to go with me because I have a map of London in my head! ;)

Cheesecakes?! XDDDDDDD I never thought of them that way! I assume you mean the ladies, do you? ;)

AND ACTUALLY YES I expected more blood and gore, too! :D :D :D Oh oh oh, you will get loads of tattoos with the Cabalists around! (those scary chicks in the HUUUUGE billboard)
31st-Oct-2007 02:35 pm (UTC)
I ACTUALLY KEPT THE NEWSPAPER FOR THE AD. BWUAHAHAHA.

Also... I WANT THE TEMPLARS ARMOUR! RAAAR!

Sadly I probably won't play the game... haaha. Is it by monthly paying system or a buy once and that's it? If so... it sounds pretty nice to get.
31st-Oct-2007 02:36 pm (UTC)
Ps. On second thought, it looks like I can make a better set of armour that the one used in this promo.
31st-Oct-2007 02:37 pm (UTC)
For a moment I thought you'd been in London and hadn't told me! :O

Yay, photos! You are super cute. *dances you* Also for once a cosplayer is hotter than the original -- in the billboard picture the Hellgate London Cabalist looks a bit cross-eyed.
1st-Nov-2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
♥! If I'd been coming to London, you'd have heard me coming about a MILLION MILES AWAY, and definitely pretty much once I'd booked the ticket. ♥!

OR OR OR there is always a chance I would have SNEAKED UP TO .CAM AND STALKED YOU LIKE A GOOD NIISAN DOES. ♥!

(Don't worry! When I come up to London, you will DEFINITELY be one of the first to know. ♥!)

EEEE!! Thank you so much! ♥ YOU'RE CUUUUUTER ~

OH THAT IS SO TRUE. The Cabalist really does look cross-eyed. And the billboard is SO HUGE, and SO SCARY. That or I am a coward when it comes to skimpily-dressed women.

Happy Halloween! xD *squee!*

You know I'm all about long hair and girly stuff, but I think your new haircut looks really awesome! I'm also very amused that we are both wearing all white on the same day... Though you're missing your wings? *grin!*

DEAN LOOKS SO COOL. I noticed the shirt in the very first picture of him and it's reaaally nice. WHERE IS SAM THOUGH? HE NEEDS A SAM! Though I guess that'll be a bit weird seeing as we ship them together and all. He's probably better off without a Sammy, haha. xD

OOH! Are you meant to be Chase? O.o I haven't watched enough House (I was paying more attention to Wilson - APOLOGIES!) to be able to tell... *sob!* I will watch it again on Thursday and RESEARCH.
31st-Oct-2007 07:10 pm (UTC)
... by the way, I can't tell if you are being OPEN AND YAYZ! or just forgetful: this post isn't flocked? I think? xD
31st-Oct-2007 08:11 pm (UTC)
Fitting day to open the Hellgate, don't ya think?
1st-Nov-2007 03:07 pm (UTC)
Indeed, it is! ;) And your icon fits it PERFECTLY.
31st-Oct-2007 09:39 pm (UTC)
ZOMG you were there.. T.T
*weeps at the amount of coolness that i happen to be missing out on*
well good to see that you're doing good, finding time to smell the sweet scent of the cybergaming rose XD ^_^
1st-Nov-2007 03:10 pm (UTC)
Wish you were able to be here too! It was a lot of fun just being there to see the launch happen, and everyone RUNNING away with a little piece of hell to take home. ;)

You'll be back soon, don't worry! Just a LIIIIIIITLE over a week and you will be back to join in ALL the coolness too! ;)

XDDDDDDDD!!! Next day was a TWO-ASSIGNMENT DAY, so WE TAKE OUR TIME WHILE WE CAN! ;)
1st-Nov-2007 05:11 am (UTC) - somehow all this associates to the fergie song >___>
the costumes are pretty awesome, so I looked up the Wiki entry and... ahhhh cool action rpg, I semi-want to invite myself over! I mean, flamethrowers shooting Greek fire and swords with locusts: cool;customisable avatars that don't look like Sephiroth (see: WoW), great; multiple gameplay modes, also cool.

What amuses me, though, is the cover - tentacles out of a head. D: D: D: I suppose the London limited edition version is okay, though? Hehe.
1st-Nov-2007 03:18 pm (UTC) - loves you! ♥
When you say, "That Fergie song" I immediately think BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY because that was what was playing where I was at for dinner tonight. XDDD!! And also because PETER PETRELLI played Fergie's dissolute tattooed boyfriend in that video. ARGHHH MY EYES, and MY PETER, too!

YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME HERE ♥ Just say the word! ♥ We have Halo 3 too, if you want to try that out! :)))

OH OH OH OH OH THE CUSTOMISABLE AVATARS WERE SO FUNNY. YOU COULD MAKE ONE TO LOOK LIKE MASTER VAN. AND WATCH THE MONSTERS RUN AWAY SCREAMING ABOUT BEING BADTOUCHED. :D

I think the multiple gameplay modes are the most fun things. The sibling is currently running around in third-person mode, and I imagine if I played that's what I'd do to! ;)

XD! The Collector's Edition the sibling has is the limited edition version, and hmm, if not for the Cabalist's attire, it would be pretty tame. Funan Mall is still plastered with Hellgate ads! AND MAN THE TENTACLES REMIND ME OF CTHULU. I need to remind myself that that image is still Hellgate when I see it, because I don't associate it with Hellgate at all! ;)
1st-Nov-2007 05:46 am (UTC)
Are my eyes going retarded or did your layout change? Well of course it did! XD;;
...oh wait, I missed that part, you switched back. XD! I CAN READ WELL.

We have had SO many people pre-order this at GameStop, actually. It's got me curious, but I suppose it's another MMO? I don't need anymore MMO games. XD!

And hooray for pictures...they look so much fun! :O!
1st-Nov-2007 03:37 pm (UTC)
Just for Halloween! ;) It will be changed back soon! ;))) I just think the colour scheme of this post fits this layout so much better. It looks so ODD on my gentle baby-blue layout! I need something BOLD and harsh and WARLIKE! ;)

My brother wouldn't describe Hellgate as a MMO, but that's just him. ;) I think it has the potential to be another MMO like Warcraft, IF they can get the critical mass. ;) But yes, they have the option of paying to play online, JUST like Warcraft.

Sigh, I remember the GOOD OLD DAYS of Diablo 2 and Battlenet - when gaming online was FREE.

*grin* Thank you! ;) I think it was so fun just to be there and BE part of it! ;)
