Hey everyone, haga here. So, I know what the all three of you who give a carp are thinking: "Where's Haga Weekly?"
Yeah, well, I can't be bothered. First off, like I just said, hardly anyone payed that blog any attention anyway. It makes sense (I've since realized that my life isn't nearly as interesting as I thought it was, and only a handful of you bother with any of my blogs at all) and I just don't feel like updating it weekly. "Haga Every-now-and-again" doesn't sound nearly as good. So yeah, so much for that. I still have some things I feel like talking about, though.
First, I've realized that Klonoa 2 is the best 2D platformer ever (yes, it's technically 2.5D, but it's still mostly 2D and Klonoa games are the only 2.5D games I have any recollection of ever playing anyway) and I've been playing that a lot. I didn't play it much when I first bought it, because it was part of my collection of 3 PS1 and PS2 games, and I never felt like swapping between my PS2 and Wii, but now that I've realized how little of a hassle that is (and I have way more PS2 and PS1 games) I don't care as much, and I play this game quite a bit. I'm actually kinda close to beating it (unless the doll shelf is misleading, I think I only have 3 levels left, give-or-take a few bosses) and I'm sad that this game is so short. Yes, there's that one chamber level (and probably another for getting all the dolls) that I haven't done yet, but that's still only 1 or 2 more levels. But yeah, loving this game.
In similar news, I only have two more people to find in Klonoa Wii (both of which are in Vision 5-2, a vision that I hate) and then I'm off to fight Nahatomb. I've heard that there are unlockable costumes for beating the game, and I want to see what they are. I'm a bit disappointed in how short this game is, even compared to the sequel, but it was still fun. Hopefully there's more stuff to do after you beat the game, because otherwise the costumes are really just a novelty. I think I heard somewhere that there's a reverse mode with some harder rooms?
I've been reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and it's pretty good. Somewhat confusing, but still good. To be fair, I'm not that far into it yet, but still.
School's back in. I don't see what the big deal about honors cla$$es is. Sure, it's only the second week of school (although I don't have school today), but still. It feels like people overestimate how challenging these cla$$es are. Of course, now that I've said that I'll probably eat my words when I get three hours of homework a night. :P
There are sooooo many games I want to get right now, it's ridiculous. Ivy the Kiwi?, Metroid: Other M (when it comes out), some of the great PS, PS2 and GC games I missed out on, games that will be coming out this semester, etc. Not to mention the 3DS, which will probably empty my pockets faster than a black hole. It's a good thing I don't have any real financial responsibilities, or I'd be SOL.
By the way, I'm going to be pissed if I get that stupid "unclosed tags" BS when I try to upload this blog.
