It's been a busy few weeks this past month, but I've managed to squeeze in some gaming time. Namely, I've finally got round to completing God of War. I've also been playing a bit of Okami, a recent purchase, and rented copies of Rugby 2008 and World of Conflict.
There's also the small timesink that is World of Warcraft, although I think I'm regulating it ok. My guild has just started raiding Karazhan but other than that I'm not on that much.
Last but not least, my copy of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for PSP has just arrived. I never played the original, which this is an update of, but I was really into Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (as well as the FF series in general, of course!) so I'm looking forward to trying this out.
And England are playing in the World Cup tonight so I'll be round the TV with some mates and some beers cheering them on!
It was also good as I got my new HD TV, which I also helped put money towards, a nice 32" Samsung :D. Saving up for my 360 now though...
I also got FIFA 07 and Oblivion, both for PC. FIFA is enjoyable as usual, I've played quite a lot of manager mode and online games. Oblivion is truly an awesome game; as good a follow-up to Morrowind as I could have hoped for.
Anyway, Happy New Year to everyone and I hope you have a good one!
I did get around to buying an N64 off ebay though for a good price.. along with the reason I bought it: The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. I've played this on and off (not very much I have to say) to try and catch up on some gaming history and it hasn't disappointed. Even to this day the game remains fun to play! (It's not quite FFVII but what is ;) ) Anyway, more about that when I get round to completing that and writing the review.
Another retro console that I've purchased recently is an old Dreamcast, along with a copy of Soul Calibur and some random games.. again, trying to play an old classic.
I also bought Tekken: Dark Resurrection for the PSP, which is very entertaining.. the first Tekken I have played since Tekken 3, it brings back the memories. Hwoarang is still my character of choice, but I like the new character Lili.
After Christmas and all the present-buying that goes with it I hope to save up for an Xbox 360. In the future I'd also like to buy a Wii and a PS3, but I'll have to wait and see.
Anyway, I don't know if anybody still reads this but feel free to leave a comment if you do.
Got a couple of parties lined up for the hols so I'm looking forward to them.
Not really gaming much at the moment, many real life commitments taking priority, and the fact my PC crashes whenever I play games now (see here.)
Sort of writing a FFX "Perfect Game" FAQ, but only making slow progress, and also working on my own RPG called "Endless Horizon".
Anyway, must be off so cya later.
And, just a note to the couple of people who have left comments on previous posts, sorry I didn't reply to them: I never read them until now, sorry!
