Last night at about half 11. I got a weird message from one of my friends saying "Thanks a lot. Goodbye". It's the goodbye part that has me freaking out. He suffers from anxiety, depression and probably other stuff he hasn't told me. We hang out a lot and he was trying to get through to me earlier that day, asked if he could hang out later and tried to ring me, but I missed the call and didn't ring back as I didn't have the credit. To be honest I don't even know what tone I should read the message in, so I instantly tried to ring him with the very little credit I had. At this point all bad thing were running through my head. Made worse as he didn't pick up his phone. Sent a text and tried to ring him twice. So noticing his best friend was online on facebook I sent him a message telling him that I was worried and he tried to ring him but he got nothing, he even sent him a message. Then we noticed his facebook account had suddenly been deleted. So his best friend contacted his girlfriend to ask her to try get through to him, but there was no answer for her either.
This made me panic more. I suffer from anxiety too and have made myself sick with worry, literally sick. Also I suffered from depression years ago and I know the things that go through your mind. I was meant to be helping him, be the person he can vent to as he felt no one else but me understood what he was going through and I feel like I've let him down. I don't know what to do as I can't contact him and don't know where he is. Right now every alarm bell is ringing in my head, but I don't know if my own anxiety is making me think these things or if there is a ground to be so worried.
When I was younger I wanted to be a writer.
Now I'm both a sales advisor/customer relations (sounds fancy but I still work in a shop) and a freelance journalist, mostly reviews.
Still, I want to be a writer and am hopefully going back to university to hopefully get a masters in creative writing.
I'm not going to get it straight away, going to let the hype die down, let the price drop a bit, spend my time building a new PC and then the first game I will play on it will be this.
Overall the game is brilliant, a rough diamond but one you'll enjoy it.
The battle system is easy to use, maybe a little too easy at times, but its easily forgiven.
The graphics are beautiful but there is an issue with framerate but that's the wii's problem not the games.
Characters are compelling and memorable.
The story is very endearing though it takes time to get into.
Plenty of side quests to add up hours of gameplay.
Also if you're using a large HDTV I suggest investing in a component cable as it can look fuzzy when using an RGB cable.
