I don't know if I should feel ashamed that I'm excited over my 1 TB external hard drive that came in the mail yesterday. I'm practically treating it as a toy, even though all I'm using it for is to... back stuff up. Actually, no, this must be completely normal behavior. A thousand gigabytes has to translate into fun at some point, statistically speaking.

Anyway, school starts again next week, I'm hoping it's my last semester. I've been trying to keep up with both languages so I'm not terribly rusty... on my final I actually forgot how to write the katakana "テ" for SOME GODAWFUL REASON, it was so completely random. Yeah, sure, I can discuss Hiroshima memorial sites no problem but write "Television" in Japanese? NOPE :D (I managed to write about something else so it was no big deal, but still...)

Gaming-wise, I finished my "perfect enough" save file on P3 FES: The Journey, and I'm making short work of The Answer as well. I'll be playing P4 before too long! Maybe.

I'm actually thinking of writing up a self-help "how to finish your gaming backlog" guide, because I've been doing a pretty good job of it lately, plus I know many people out there with this shameful problem.

Well, tonight's date night, I suppose I should get around to that eventually... *sigh* the life of an ace gamer such as myself is a hard one, but someone's got to do it. *wears sunglasses at night*

I. SaGa 2, aka Final Fantasy Legend II, is being remade for the DS. And it looks all 3D and awesome and aww yeah this rules.


Cut for giant penis summoned monster. Yes this is an actual persona you can use in the game. )

I've been commenting on LJ a lot and [ profile] krile has been posting all the relevant RL-stuff that's been going on, so I've neglected to update my own journal XD;

Well, I beat Persona 3. I am so tempted to pick it up and play it over again, but on the other hand I want FES =(

I mean the opening movie has Elizabeth going down a slide in the park for some reason which is worth $50 or whatever on its own. I keep trying to conceive of what possible situation could warrant her going down a slide, I MUST KNOW! (and no, you're not allowed to tell me if you do know)

I can only hope the good reviews and sales of the game could cause Atlus to release it here, uh, please? <3

I've also bought Growlanser: Heritage of War but I have no idea why. I mean... it comes with a lot of goodies, so... but the shameful truth is that I haven't even played any of the other Growlanser games that have been release here, even though I have the deluxe edition sitting at home.

Maybe one of my brothers will want it for Christmas and I can use it as a gift maybe minus the goodies, or I'll play it myself at some point. Or sell it on eBay in a year for mucho dinero? Hell, I bought Suikoden II from eBay so I'm entitled to pray on some desperate gamers if I want to, it's karma or some crap.

Also, in case anyone still doesn't know, tomorrow at Toys 'r Us you can download a Manaphy to your game via Mystery Gift between 12pm-3pm, and if you participate in the download you get $5 off any DS game! Not a bad deal at all.

I haven't been this into a game in a long, long time. There are just so many awesome things about it rolled into one sweet package. The game just oozes style, the soundtrack is incredible (and yet something I thought I'd never hear in an RPG soundtrack), and - get this - the gameplay is good too! I really can't recommend this game enough, if the jaded old RPG veteran that I am can get excited over this, anyone could!

I've been playing for hours, then stopping only briefly to eat and do some other essentials, and then hopping right back into it.

Let me summarize:

- You can go to the bathroom in the game and it improves your status

- You summon your Persona by shooting yourself in the head

- Awesome hip-hop-ish soundtrack with lyrics like OOH YEAH, BABY BABY during BATTLES

- School sim during the day where you can hit on people and join school clubs, and at night you descend into a deadly dungeon for some fun extracurricular activities

- Sodas such as Dr. Salt, Moonkist, and Mad Bull will help you recover your strength

- The main character has an MP3 player equipped as his accessory

The game also comes with a hardbound artbook and soundtrack CD.

I know a lot of people on my FL are already playing this, but I just have to say I'm really impressed with the game so far. So, play it!

P.S. new layout cuz of this gaem 8-)
