Can anyone recommend me some really moving, atmospheric game soundtracks to listen to? Stuff like Journey or Transistor's soundtracks.

Hi there folks', I'm Mike, but most folks know me as Midori, call me whatever!

:star:Season's greetings!:star:

About me?

I'm just yer' regular guy... Pfft--- Couldn't type that with a straight face...

I'm nearly blind, completely in my right eye and severely in my left, but my sexy glasses are a big help! I'm on the Autistic Spectrum, Aspergers Syndrome to be precise, I'm also Dyspraxic, and being tested for Bipolar, and an insomniac. I think that's everything wrong with me.

On the bright side I'm actually pretty cheerful most of the time, I'm quite shy, especially so at first, but I'm always hopeful to make new friends, so if you want to spark up a conversation, or just simply comment on my artwork, please, feel free, I love the chance to interact with people, and will try my very best to respond as soon as possible!

Why am I here?
I once got told that I'd never be able to draw because of my eyes, so I said, Hey, you want a bet? And that's what brought me here to DeviantArt, my home at (and occasionally away from) home!

What do I like?
In case you couldn't tell I love Manga and Anime, Especially cute Yuri fluff! :heart:
I love tons of music, from J-pop to Rock to Heavy Metal, and I worship Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters almost religiously...
I also LOVE stand-up comedy, especially British stand-up, my favourite comedians are Russell Howard, Dara O'Briain, and John Bishop.
I have MAAAAANY FANDOMS. Anime/manga wise, there are far too many to list...
None anime/manga, my main fandoms are: Doctor Who, Star Wars (Classic trilogy and Expanded Universe), Mass Effect, and Dead Space... It's all Sci-fi, huh.

My goal?
My long term goal is to publish some Manga comics, and maybe start up a small production company! Hopefully in a few years time I'll be good enough! ^w^

Other useless info.
I occasionally do crazy stuff to raise money for charity, mainly Marie Curie Cancer Care
www.mariecurie.org.uk/
Here is a video of me skydiving to raise money for them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcXV7D…

I'm hopelessly androgynous...
I have a Glasses Fetish that borders on the unhealthy...

One song that always tugs at my heartstrings, and makes me weep like a schoolgirl is Supercell's Perfect Day...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBI01o…

My ultimate guilty pleasure is The Darkness' I Believe in a thing called Love.... Don't judge, awesome glam is awesome...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRYNYb…

My anime Hero is Vash the Stampede from Trigun.

Also, I'm actually a smuggler from Corellia, so, like... Don''t ever tell me the odds, we Corellians hate that.

I guess that's really it...? Anyway, thank you for visiting my page, I really appreciate it, feel free to say hi and leave feedback, really, don't be shy!

Peace and Love!
~Midori

-------

Facts.

1. I'm completely blind in my right eye, and partially in my left eye.
2. I don't like hot drinks for some reason, none at all.
3. Besides the odd game (and Monster Hunter...XD) I actually mostly prefer to watch people play games, like on Twitch for example.
4. Up until the 14th of February 2014 I hadn't drawn or uploaded a single piece of Star Wars art.
5. Despite owning a Cat, I am a Dog person, and I want a Welsh Corgi, I will name him Ein, after the Corgi from Cowboy Bebop.
6. I wanted to call our Cat Yuki, which means snow in Japanese, but my family voted for Snowball, which is the same thing, but not as clever, or dignified... XD
7. I am a boring person and am running out of facts.
8. I am left handed. (Boring fact is boring.)
9. I am Dyspraxic, so much so that I cannot tie knots... ^^;
10. DeviantArt is the single constant in my online life, even during my dark days, when I deleted all of my social media ties, I couldn't get rid of this one, I love you all too much to consider that. :hug:  
-------

Tori's Questions:

1. What is your favorite appetizer? 
I generally don't do big meals... But on the rare occasions that I do generally anything with fruit. 

2. What countries have you traveled to?
I've been to a couple, like a couple of the Canary Islands, and Mexico. (Great places, though far too hot for me...)  
I'd like to visit many places, various places in the US, Japan, and France in particular. ^_^

3. Do you like classical music?
A fair bit, I like Orchestral scores more specifically though, I find I've been listening to a lot of orchestral soundtracks lately, for games in particular, I'm thinking of making a list of my favourites.  

Though for a classic symphony I have to say I really like Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No.9 "From the New World" Particularly the 4th Movement, it's so damn good... (Funnily enough the cleanest version I could find was also part of a game soundtrack (One of my favourites mind you), go figure... XD) 
 

4. Do you like flying in an airplane, if you have?
I actually love flying! I wish my family would stop holidaying in hot places so I could go with them... XD 
I've also done a skydive, it was for charity, but I'd love to do it again, just for fun! :meow:

5. What TV shows are you currently watching?
None really, I'm not really a TV person, though I enjoy rewatching my favourite shows a lot, shows like The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh, Father Ted, Black Books, I have the boxsets. :meow: I enjoy watching The Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park too, but we haven't got Sky, or Virgin Media, or anything like that, so I can't watch any of the newer episodes.   

6. Can you ice skate?
I know the basics, I used to go to the Deeside Ice Rink when I was younger with my family, haven't been in years though, I'm probably a bit rusty, but I really miss it. 

7. How clean/neat is your room?
Eheheh, my bookshelves are OCD levels of perfect, the rest of my room... Next question...

8. What age did you start using the internet? 
Hmmm... I can't say I remember... Early teens, I used to play those flash-based games... and Runescape... Oh my gosh that's so long ago, oh my wasted youth... XD 

9. Favorite time of day?
That secret 25th hour that occurs once a year, when the clocks change... :heart:

10. Favorite kind of cracker?
CHRISTMAS CRACKERS!!! Which apparently aren't as wide spread as I'd once thought... A lot of friends in the States thought that when I talked about Christmas Crackers I was talking about food, but Christmas Crackers aren't food guys, this is a 
Christmas cracker! ;P
-------

My Questions: 

1. When watching a series, do you take your time, or binge watch?

2. What's more important in a game, graphics, or sound?

3. For manga and anime, do you prefer to read a manga, or watch the anime? 

4. Do you have any fictional heroes who inspire you in your real, day-to-day life?

5. Do you like glasses...? :meow:

6. Can you think up a random question to ask yourself, and answer it? Thank you, I'm totally not being lazy or anything...

7. A lighthearted question now... It's a zombie apocalypse and I've been bitten, and am showing the early signs of zombification, you have precious few bullets left and the zombie horde approaches, will you shoot me in the head, ending my suffering but alerting the horde to your presence and possibly dooming yourself, or will you leave me behind to be consumed by the zombie horde as you make your escape? ^w^

8. Favourite Youtube personalities, if any.

9. Favourite OC's of yours, if any, and why? :meow:

10. Why do you watch me? :meow: (No seriously, why? XD) 
-------

I like to collect them, I have a good few scattered around now, but they are very expensive, so it's a rare treat, most of them I get from Crunchyroll, because they have daily sales, I tend to watch the sales and when one I want is going for cheap that's when I get em', Crunchyrolls great that way. ^_^
Ah, I see, they sound adorable! XD
