Tales of Vesperia (The first 4 hours of playin' it)

Yes! It arrived technically yesterday (since it's 5:15am here at the moment XD)



It had arrived while i was out.. When i got in i grabbed it, ran straight upstairs, installed ToV to my hard drive then started the game...........

My first impressions were: Wow, Just wow. Graphics look incredible, stunning and amazingly beautiful ^_^

The storyline is nicely paced, within the first hour you get a good grip of what's happening etc.
Learning the battle system was pretty easy, there's quite alot to take on board but it's easily done.

Characters:
I'm impressed. The voices suit the characters and they each have personality.
The script is funny, quite alot of parts got me smiling XD I love that in an RPG. Fun and quirky! ;D

So far i'm really enjoying it. I didn't wanna switch it off! But alas, i was sleepy.. So i forced myself away from it and got into bed.. But as soon as i did, i felt awake, wide awake. So i decided to come on here instead and see what was happening on GS ;P

I'll probably try and sleep later (knowing me it'll be this afternoon XD) then i'll play on it more since i have nothin' to do (YAY GAMING TIME!)
I'm really glad i got this game now ;P Seriously!
I'll update my blog about ToV in a few days after i've played it more :3

I hope you're enjoying your weekend! Happy gaming! ^_^

Complaint about Square Enix (Yes, A rant)

Don't get me wrong, I love the FF series.. But even though FF13, in itself, is a decent game.. It shouldn't be called Final Fantasy. I think SE should wrap up the series :/
In my opinion, it sometimes feels like a recycled storyline with a few differences.
FF13 didn't feel like a Final Fantasy game to me, they should have at least named it something different.

Over the years, some fantastic RPG's have been shaded away by the Final Fantasy title.
2 amazing series for example:
Suikoden series
Shadow Hearts series
(I'm even getting intrigued by the 'Tales of' series ;P)

Those, to me, are more amazing than FF has ever been.. But no-one seems to care about other RPG's since FF has entered their lives. I could be wrong.

Plus, SE have payed alot more attention to FF than they have Kingdom Hearts, which is another great title. C'mon SE, leave FF and carry on with Kingdom Hearts for a while at least! =/

I'm not saying FF are bad games. I do like them but i take an interest in other RPG's more than FF now.
Whenever i think of Final Fantasy, i think of Cloud, Sephiroth, Tifa, Yuffie, Aerith, Squall. THAT'S Where the series should have stopped (or there abouts) (Though i loved Crisis Core, ZACK FTW)
From there they should have made the rest with a different title. (It's all my opinion)

I just hope Shadow Hearts or Suikoden storm in on a next gen console and knock Final Fantasy off it's throne.. Wishful thinking.

Sorry, I needed to get that out of my system XD
Some of you will probably disagree :3

Happy gaming!

Gaming Update!

Well, Everyone knows i've been playing Dead Space. Awesome game indeed.
Prince of Persia is good too ;P

Here's my small collection of 360 games so far




I've also ordered
Tales of Vesperia


Which will arrive sometime in the next week ^_^! YAY!
I'm having a gaming day with my friend in a few days, should be fun ;D EAT, EAT, DRINK, DRINK, GAME, GAME! O_O What could be better??? XD


I hope you're all having a good Easter week. What game(s) have you been addicted to recently? ;P

I'm back on Gamespot! (My new life, Upset, Engagement and Gaming)

Yes! I'm back. Sorry i've been away. I've been spending time with my girlfriend, since she we don't see each other very often right now. So i wanted to put my full attention on her =] ..

Firstly, I saw my girlfriend, Danielle, off today. We both cried as we kissed goodbye then i let her get on her train. I seriously wanted to cling onto her and not let her go :/ As soon as she got on the train, i walked away and just burst into tears. She then phoned me, saying she missed me already. It's hurting being sat in my bedroom right now without her =[

Onto other news. In June/July, after Danielle finish's college this year, she'll be moving in with me ^_^ So that will be the start of my new life. Another page in my book. =] I really can't wait! Then we'll get sorted of getting a place of our own. :3
OH! And she proposed to me 2 nights ago. I was SO shocked! She said "Lottie, You know i love you, with all my heart.. And you know that i really want to be with you for the rest of my life.. So i wanted to ask.. Will you marry me?" and opened a box with a ring in it. I was sat there, eyes like O_O and i was speechless. I hesitated but in the end, i said yes. ^_^ I had to think about it for a minute.. But it feels right, Even though i'm only 19, i know what i want. =]

Gaming:
I've been glued to Dead Space recently since Danielle bought me it xD and yes, it's made me jump a few times hah! I'm a wuss! ;D But i'm finding the story intriguing =]

I also have Prince of Persia (360) but i haven't played it yet. I'll give it a try either tonight or tomorrow :3
I hope you've all been well. See you on the boards.
Happy gaming!

I never said goodbye D: (and.. OOOOO NEW GAMES!)

Sorry i haven't been here in the past couple of days, i forget to post a blog to say goodbye D: So i thought i'd show up today to post one xD

My girlfriend is still here, we went to Gamestation today and she bought me Dead Space and Prince of Persia, both for the 360. YAY! ^_^

I'll be back on Gamespotfully onmonday night:3 Since Danielle is only staying for 5 days now, not 10. =[

I hope you're all doing well. I'll be back on the boards on monday! ^^

Luffles! HAPPY GAMING!

The Easter holidays, My new Kingdom Hearts video and some updates

Okay, most of you know i make videos on Youtube and some of you have seen this video xD But i thought i'd post it here, i might aswell [Click here to watch]

I'm in the middle of a lot of things right now.. Gaming, Makin' vids, Writing my new story, Reading, College. So i've been pretty busy and i haven't been able to game much this past week, unfortunately :/ But since it's friday tomorrow and i finish college at 10:30am, i'm gonna game like crazy when i get home! xD So that should be good.

The easter holidays are starting soon (next friday i think?) and my girlfriend is coming here next thursday and she'll be staying until the 10th of April ^^ So again, i don't think i'll be online for around 10 days this time D: Don't miss me too much ;P Anyway, i'm not saying my goodbyes yet so i'll save the 'sad news' for another time lawl.

Okay, I have a joke..
I've started cage fighting and won my first fight earlier today..... F*cking budgie never knew what hit it....

Oooooo, Harsh. xD
I hope you're all doing well ;P And thanks for taking up your valuable time to read this hah!

The weekend begins, Dragon Age + Final Fantasy and A Rant.

First off.. I'm seein' Alice in Wonderland tomorrow (3D) i can't wait ;P It looks so good. Tim Burton ftw!

Now i'd like to rant about the Xbox 360 vs. the PS3.
I hate fan-boys/girls with consoles, it's pathetic. My friend (yes FRIEND) was flaming me over msn because i have a 360 and not a PS3.. -_-''
I don't care for this console war going on. If you have any game console what-so-ever just enjoy the damn games on them! I told him he was acting childish and he said, in these exact words "your a pathetic c*nt for having a 360 cuz its sh*t" .. Like i care?.. I'm enjoying my 360, i can play games on it that i've been looking forward to playing, is that a crime?
I don't go around flaming people for having a PS3, both consoles are good in their own way.
In the end, i blocked him. I really couldn't be bothered getting stressed over some whiney little fanboy.
It's the same friend who said i shouldn't play Resident Evil because i'm a girl.. I've cleared them so many times, he hasn't cleared any yet. I rest my case.

Okay, enough ranting xD
Onto Dragon Age:
I'm looking forward to getting DA Awakening xP It looks really good! I'm getting my tattoo done first before i buy anymore games :3

FFXIII:
So far so good. Been playing for about 14 hours and it's great so far ^^ I'm really getting into it. Now that i've played it for myself, i disagree on the reviews saying it's cr*p. The storyline isn't as bland as people say, it's really picking up ^_^
I love the character design, personalities+ voices.
Overall i'm really liking it :D!


My girlfriend is coming to stay for a week in 2 weeks today ^^ I can't wait. I've missed spending a lot of time with her :3
I've seriously never felt like this for someone before.. o.o It's weird.. But i love this feeling! ^^


I hope you're all doing well. And i hope you all have a good weekend! ^_^

Singing my girlfriend to sleep. FF13 yet again and A Special Thanks.

So.. Here's my story.

First of all: Final Fantasy 13.
I'm enjoying it.. But.. I'm stuck.. DX I'm ashamed to admit when i can't do part of a game.. Ugh.. But i'm admitting it now.
I'm stuck on the Eidolon: Odin. OMG how tough is he??? The first time i tried it i died within seconds, I was like "Hm, Okay i'm in need of a new tactic.." I tried again but epicly failed once more. A few more times of dying and i gave up for the night.
It pains my heart when i'm finding a game THAT hard and it's incredibly rare for me to find a game tough like this.
I'll keep trying though, I must do this, I can't give up.

Final Fantasy aside, I sung my girlfriend to sleep earlier (how embarrasing..) She was having a restless night so i decided to whisper her favourite song to her in a singing kinda fasion as i held her and she eventually nodded off (Yes. I'm a softie!). But me.. I'm still restless =/ It's just gone 5:30am and i'm still awake. Plus, I feel quite sick due to tiredness :/ I'll try and get some sleep soon..

Gamespot:
Since i came back to gamespot late last year, i've taken more of a liking to it. Mainly thanks to a particular Union (Owned by Gormo) who made me feel incredibly welcome so i thank all the members of that Union who i now consider my friends =]
And thank you to others who comment on this Blog. =]
I hope you're all doing well ^_^!

Luffles!

The weekend begins (ANOTHER JOKE!) and Final Fantasy Xlll ;P

Okay.. Here we go, quite a read but i find it fun XD (WARNING!: may contain 'perverted' nature of some kind lmao)


Mr Cadbury and Ms Rowntree met on a cruise, it was After Eight.

She lives down Quality Street, he was a Fisherman's Friend. When they finished their cruise, they decided to go on a Date. They stopped at a Yorkie Bar, he had a Rum & Butter and she had a Wine Gum.
He asked her name, "Polo - I'm the one with the hole", she said.

"I'm the one with the Nuts", he thought. After a few minutes they decided to leave as the music was too loud, & neither of them liked M & M.
They checked into a hotel and went straight to the bedroom. Mr Cadbury turned out the light for a bit of Black Magic.
It wasn't long before he slipped his hand into her Snickers and felt the contrast of her Double Decker.

Then he showed her his Curly Wurly. But Ms Rowntree wasn't keen as she already had a few Jelly Babies, so she let him take a trip down Bourneville Boulevard.
He was pleased as he always fancied a bit of Fudge. It was a Magic Moment as she let out a scream of Turkish Delight.
When he came out his Fun Sized Mars Bar felt a bit Crunchie. She wanted more but he decided to take a Time Out. However, he noticed her Pink Wafers looked very appetising. So he did a Twirl and had a Picnic in her Sherbert. At the same time he gave her a Gob Stopper.

Unfortunately Mr Cadbury had to go home to his wife, Caramel. Sadly, he
was soon to discover he had caught V.D. It turns out Ms Rowntree had been with All Sorts!


There we go! Hope you liked that one!

Onto FFXlll
So far the game is good, stunning graphics and the voices are top-notch! And Vanille's voice is amazing xD I could just sit and listen to her for hours!


The characters also have personality, so i don't them find them bland in the slightest ;P
I haven't gotten very far, been playing for about 2 hours. I'm gonna have a massive gaming session tonight XD!

In other news:
Me and Danielle are doing great :3
My little brother won't stop singing the 'Go Compare' theme, it's literally driving me insane.
Need.. More.. Sleep. (Only got about 2 hours last night)

Well nao, Hope you're all doing well =] Have fun gaming! ;P
