Been a hot minute since I wrote an entry...but i've been busy in that gamers sense. I decided to dust off some of my old games I hadn't picked up in a while and try to put them down for good so I can rest a bit easier at night. I started with Chrono Cross, I game I had had since when it was first released on PS1 but had just been playing it off and on. I had gotten stuck on one boss at some point in time for like and month and 1/2...tried to beat him like 30+ times and was smoked each time. Miguel was a huge beyatch, but after taking a break for a while to play some other games I managed to come back and give him a smoking of his own. I recently picked the game up about three days ago and realized how close I was to completion...so I just sat down and grinded it out, finally beating the game. Sad thing is I barely remember half of the story. Hell, with soooo many freakin playable charcters, it's easy to lose track of things. So I put that game away and picked up Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. I had had an early infatuation with this one, i'm all about being a vampire and sucking people's blood. It's always nice to have a game with a different twist on it. The game itself isn't the greatest, but I only had about 2 hours of gameplay left to beat it, so I decided to get that one done too.
Sooooo, that's two games down and a bunch more to go. The game I'm closest to putting away next would be Devil May Cry 3...but it might be a bit before I finish that. I'm on the last level and the boss is....lets just say, recockulous. After that the list is as follows....
- GTA: San Andreas - After having my save game file deleted while I was gaving up video games for lent I sat down and played for a few days to get back to the 2nd city of San Fierro, but I still have a ways to go to complete it fully.
- Star Ocean 2: The Second Story - About 70 hours into it and on the 2nd disc. Basically at the doorstep to the final dungeon.
- Beyond Good & Evil - I've heard the game was really short, so judging by my play time i'm probably a little more than half way there.
- Silent Hill 3 - Barely even scratched the surface...finished the first area and it's all daaaaaaammmnnnn scurrryy. I'll probably pick it up every now and then for a cheap thrill.
- Final Fantasy V - I've been playing the game on my emulator and i'm pretty far, but I might just start it over on the PS for the sake of simplicity, not to mention a nice CG movie at the end.
- Legend of Legia - I've always thought this game was special in its own little way, the interesting martial arts fighting system for an RPG was a nice change back in the day, but in a present day's light it's kinda dull. Might just end up scraping the adventure all together.
- KOTR - Started playing the game over christmas break on my little bro's xbox and i've got to say it's a really cool game, I just haven't had the chance to get back into yet. I'll probably do so before I head back to school in august.
Well, that's all for now...until next time.
