You play too much Oni when...

1. You say your attacks in sync with executing them.
2. You believe purple is a natural hair colour that can be passed on to your kids.

Think of some more! big_smile

Re: You play too much Oni when...

Well, (1) is not really specific to Oni... Happens all the time in anime-based fighting games. (2) is nice (we can't be sure it's 100% genetic though wink ).

There were 2 anthological instances of "too much Oni", both of them true stories:
A) Aiko sighted a Mercury Bow shot outside her window (after a night spent playing Oni)
B) Loser jerked at the sound of Konoko's "gruesome death" and sustained severe injuries (late night gaming, too)

I can't think of any original "symptoms" right now...

BTW, whoever is creative enough to contribute to this thread should consider having a look at THESE TWO (especially the latter).

Re: You play too much Oni when...

I'd say that you "played too much Oni when...:

You attack your syblings and force them to tell you where Shinatama is.

Your first thoughts at seeing any weird purple-ness on your hands is "DAODAN!!!"

Your first thought regarding medical injections is "DAODAN!!!"

You can't hear the word Hypodermic without immediatly thinking "DAODAN!!!"

The word "superball" brings to mind the image of a rifle rather than a rubber ball.

Every time you get a stomach ache you think "DAODAN!!!"

You look at Butterfly kukoons with fear.

You ask for a Superball at your friendly neighborhood arms dealer.

You try to call the TCTF after being hacked.

You try to use your laptop to open a locked door.

You ramdomly attack all people with purple hair at anime cons.

You cower in fear before people with purple hair at anime cons.

You see any Frankenstein movie and think Muro.

You hear Murry, but think Muro.

You can list this many symptoms for playing too much Oni... off the top of your head

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You look at a hamburger and see Dr. Kerr's face.

You start asking scientists and civilians for hypos.

You try out some moves from Oni at school.

You wear a breathing mask because you think the air is toxic.

You start looking for the syndicate on Wikipedia. (BTW, check HERE

You think all brains have lasers attached to them, with cannons.

YOU START GOING ON ONI FORUMS!!!

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You play too much ONI when...
You are trying to surpass your body limits and think that *something* will happen when you are almost unconscious. (personal experience, so far nothing happened -> maybe I wasn't exhausted enough)

You are looking at the real world around you and thinking what could be hacked in order to be more real. (personal experience)

You are experiencing states when you think you are like an AI2: dumb and stubborn. (personal experience ^_^' , pretty often)

You are trying to jump 2.5 meters high. (personal experience, you can see it on YouTube, search for andrashi, it is titled *Anime jump*)

You are wondered that you can see shadows of objects. (personal experience)

You wake up in the morning and in half sleep you are trying to think what you should enhance today in ONI (personal experience, at least
once per week ^_^')

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You search for random info about it's development out of boredom. neutral
http://www.bungie.org/bungiechatlog.html

...
5:31 PM:  Nijhazer: How would you say the final version of Oni will be 
                    different from what we've seen thus far in the previews? 
                    And can you comment about what we can expect in terms of 
                    length of the game?
5:31 PM:   Isolder: What will happen to the myth/oni goods currently for 
                    purchase at the Bungie Store after they have run out of 
                    stock?
...
5:39 PM:    yeroen:   Isolder: The current Myth/Oni goods in the store will go 
                    into our online team's closet, to support fan gatherings, 
                    tournaments, etc.
...
5:51 PM: DeadWhore: How do you feel to let "children" such as Myth and Oni go? 
                    Somewhere it must hurt..?
...
5:55 PM:    yeroen: DeadWhore: It hurts a lot to let go of ownership of the Oni 
                    and Myth franchises. However, it was impossible to do this 
                    deal without it, Take2 held a lot of power.
5:55 PM:    yeroen: We like them a lot, however, and we hope they'll do a great 
                    job supporting them.
...
6:01 PM:   Panamon: If PC/Mac versions of the games aren't developed, how long 
                    do you expect the community to last?  It's already been a 
                    year and 7 months since Bungie's last game (excluding 
                    Chimera), and several more months until Oni.  How long can 
                    this community wait (for the answers we want/need to hear, 
                    among other things)?
...
6:01 PM:  GreenMtn: I would like to let you Bungie staff know that i will no 
                    longer be purchasing any of their products. I've been an 
                    avid fan since Marathon I, but i will not support MS in any 
                    way shape or form. It's a matter of pride, morality, and 
                    standing up for something i believe in. Youre going to lose 
                    alot of long time fans.
...
6:02 PM: ProudFles: I don't think we have a right to be involved with another 
                    Myth or Oni, but we get along with the Take 2 folks well so 
                    maybe they would be kind enough to ask.
6:04 PM: ProudFles: Green, that's your decision, and you're entitled to it.   
                    All I can say is that we too felt we were making the best 
                    decision for the company and the people who work here.

Re: You play too much Oni when...

If you are impressed by someone, you say "You are capable of so much more..." in a zombie voice.

You dye your hair purple and make it spiky.

You raise your arms and scream and assume you have evolved.

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You see a lizard and think "Glorious isnt it?"
You're the only one who can find a relationship in the words "Spin", "Devil", "Kick".
You expect everyone to give you something after you end your conversation.
You find it weird how your shadow isn't round.
You see Konoko's father's picture on a milk box.
You search for all kinds of gels to make your hair reflective.
You talk without opening your mouth at all.
You don't like blinking either.
You have nightmares after you eat pizza.
You kill your wife and you write a letter - "She broke her nail and I shot her to ease her pain".

You start to like chicks with short spikey dark hair.

You go around beating up anyone in a uniform.

You look at Wolverine's head and wonder where the purple went.

You spray paint TCTF into a license plate and run around various factories.

You work on unlocking new moves at the Gym.

You keep coming HERE with more "Too Much Oni" off the top of your head.

You swallow Cacoons in hopes of reaching the "Next Level"

You battle Ninjas on a daily basis.

You think your life will end after several hours of play.

You stand perfectly still on "pause" to avoid the above.

You think you can die, reset, and try again.

You think you can replay any prior event in life.

You think you can kill your boss.

You think you can kill your brother.

You think you can kill random civilians and steal their ammo.

You think you can survive toxic air, so you dare to walk through the perfume department.

You think you can survive toxic air, so you start using puplic restrooms.

You think you can survive an acid bath, so you bring a rubber duck to watch it melt.

You spend all of you free time reading and responding to threads on this forum.

You think the Matrix has you... nevermind.

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You murder your brother's best friend after he steals one of your pink dolls.

Afterwards, your brother electrocutes that doll in an attempt to find out your best combat moves.

Your doll then blows itself up because your boss told it to.

You can perform amazing combat moves whilst wearing extremely tight jeans.

You always tell someone to "come out with your hands up" whether you have a firearm or not.

You bathe in poisonous acid to make your (ex)boss think you are dead.

You try to emulate certain guns. (screaming cannon, anyone?)

Anyone you attack begs "please! oh please! not in the face!".

You start asking people for ammo.

You dream of dolls floating around and giggling.

If you are cornered, you say : All you have done by hunting me is force me to fight, you should have let me go!

If you are being attacked, you say : Please! Oh please! Not in the face!

Re: You play too much Oni when...

Slightly offtopic, but I know this applies to some of us:

You Know You Watch Too Much Anime When...
..."hai," "baka," and "hentai" come to your lips so easily that sometimes you have difficulty remembering what the English words are.

I could also add this about myself:

...THIS symbol is somehow very familiar to you, but you can't remember where you saw it
...so you look it up in the Special Characters table of your word processor, to no avail
...and then you start to wonder whether you've dreamt it up smile

That's the hiragana for the sound no (with the o as in on.

Re: You play too much Oni when...

you have played too much when you...

...start running and try to jump over someone else.

...Try to trow someone.

...Think that the everyday basic is killing and being killed.

...When you try to knock someone else trough the wall just to see if there head will be seable on the other side.

...When you start seeing doubles of your self in your dreams.

...When you have been examinated inside your uncles lab.

...When you try fallowing the road but an invisible wall is blocking your way.

Re: You play too much Oni when...

You might be playing Oni too much if...

-you love your relatives so much, you say hello to them every time you see them, even if it's only been a few minutes.

-your idea of cool includes riding motorbikes at speeds in excess of 100 mph without a windshield or a helmet or goggles.

-your idea of cool includes never wearing sunglasses by daylight and saving them for dark, stormy nights instead.

-some poor ex-mugger still hears the words "RISING FURY!!!" in his nightmares.
