I did say "attempt", right?

Well, true to my nature, I've already broken my attempt to stick to a list.

I almost feel like this should be a freebie though... I was made aware today that the Japanese versions of Phoenix Wright also include english text - so I promptly ordered Phoenix Wright 2.

So we'll just alter the list a bit and stick that one in there, mmkay?  I had anticipated getting the US release in January (my list was meant for before Christmas) but extenuating circumstances, yadda yadda yadda.

In other news, I picked up my Collector's Edition of Final Fantasy XII.  So far, I've really enjoyed the bonus material (skimpy as it may be, it's at least well done).  Looking forward to getting started tonight... let's hope it lives up to its predecessors.

Attempting to be a minimalist

I hear that people often fill their lives with too much clutter, which in turn makes them unhappy; currently I feel that way about my current gaming collection.  Not that I'm unhappy, per se, but I do feel as though I have a mound of clutter.

Maybe it's some strange zen thing I'm feeling because I've been drinking so much tea lately, but I am making an attempt to cut down on the number of games I purchase this season.

So, here is the list:

Final Fantasy XII
Gears of War
Viva Pinata
Sam and Max Episode 1
Wii and one Wii title TBD

The first two are actually only because they have limited editions that I am looking forward to (my incessant listening of Final Fantasy piano music has warmed me to the series again).  Sam and Max needs to be supported (plus I think it's releasing at a budget price?), and Viva Pinata is game that is just MADE for me.

Outside of these, I believe I will spend my days playing WoW (I'm fortunate enough to be in the BC beta) and various FPS on my PC (BF2, BF2142, CSS, Q4).

I have to wonder a bit if I'm missing out on anything huge...?

Apologies to everyone!!

I'm sorry for all of you who voted for me - I was still at the event, but I didn't hear the things going on.  I was either playing a game or chatting with some friends of mine and I totally missed them calling the VIP contest.

Apologies again - I really appreciate all the votes, but someone deserving still won.  :)

Maybe next year I'll be less spacey about it... ARGH!

Thanks to everyone!

For some reason, I am currently leading in the votes for Gamespot's Ultimate VIP.  I'm not quite sure why, but I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me.  :)

THANKS!  And I'll see you all at the event!! *hearts*

Comfort Games

Slashdot had a posting about your top 5 comfort games.  To quote them, "These reliable, fun titles are the old favorites you consistently look to for amusement and solace after a bad gaming session, a bad day, a bad week"

I would have to say that mine are (in no particular order):

Parappa the Rapper
Katamari Damacy
King's Quest VI
Final Fantasy VI

These are off the top of my head so the list might change depending on the day... but I know that everytime I even see/think of these games, it brings a smile to my face.  :)

What are yours?

Oh It's ON!

I'm heading out to Showdownlan this weekend ( for some good ol' fashioned nerdiness.

I will be taking lots of pictures and posting them up here when I can.  :)
