submitted to playing pressure (if ever there's one >.>) and bought PoP:WW already. well, technically, the copies circulating before a game is officially launched here are those beta leaks. and so most of the times there are several glitches... like playing with no sound, no dialogue or even worse with invisible enemies who are hacking you to death. and that's what's happening with me. XD that's what you get for buying pirated games. x.x but then, this is asia... and there aren't really strict rules in bootlegs. i know i'm technically stealing but heck, an original game costs an arm and a half a leg here. it's that expensive. but for PoP, i think i'm willing to give half of my arm... let's just see.
anyway, on to the game... so far (and i don't know how far i am in the game) i'm loving it... though not as much as i love SoT. (but heck, i'm placing SoT really high in my rankings) what i'm currently really missing from SoT in WW: the witty one-sided dialogue by the prince. no.. really. i found that pretty entertaining in SoT. but since technically, the prince at WW is a darker and more mature one, i guess that hearing those SoT-kind of dialogue from his mouth isn't really possible. as for other stuff, the great gameplay's still there. love the prince's acrobats, his fighting moves, and yeah.. love using two swords this time!! that was a plus. ^O^ as for storyline, it's pretty much good so far. i just hope that everything culminates into a great ending which is one of the best points of the storyline of SoT.
enough of PoP. on to other stuff, i bought myself a belated birthday/early christmas present! a second hand original GBA complete with the necessary accessories and five games. got it from a friend who's selling it. yeah, right... a present for myself, eh? well, that's just me and my impulsive buying self trying to justify that it's really more of a present for myself than a me spending on unnecessary stuff. hahaha. but, hey, i really bought that one with the intent of playing KH:CoM on it. right now though, from the five games that i have, i think i'll only be able to play two of em. and i don't know what other games are good. so yeah. need something else to play on it.
since everyone's posting their wishlist.. i think i'll post mine later at my LJ. oh and yeah, tomorrow's the first of december. it's actually my mom's and dad's birthday but i don't know what to get them. any suggestions?
some upcoming anime for 2005 - problem is it's in jap so if you know some japanese, then you might guess what title goes where. some that caught my eye though: digimon x-evolution (not another digimon! i love the first two. frontier, i can live without it...), negima (from the maker of love hina. from the few chapters that i've read, it's really cute and funny), another aa! my goddess, peach girl (cool! that took a long time!), of course samurai champloo 2nd season, xenosaga (why didn't they just do xenogears instead of xenosaga! really!.. though i haven't really played xenosaga at all XD) and full metal panic! the second raid (at last! it's confirmed!!! full metal panic! something that continues the first season and not a totally side story of it. but i still love fumoffu.). i'm hoping to get my hands on the peach girl, samurai champloo and the full metal panic ones if i still have access to high speed internet by that time.
by the way, for those who greeted my a happy birthday, thaaaankkkssss!!! *super glomp tackles everyone*
this game is making me drool and wet my pants! no, really! and it's coming out on the 30th of november. i'll give it a week or more to be made available on our local pirated stores before grabbing it. so far the ign impression of the preview i've read gives it great marks like that of sands of time. the only drawback... so far at the first half, there isn't much puzzle solving. personally, i love the puzzles of SoT especially at the observatory room. i hope at the second half of WW, there would be something interesting popping up. gyash. i really really really want to play it right now. more screenshots here.
