About
Hey, I'm Elec. Just another guy in college, I'm working on a degree in Web/Digital Media. I got into gaming in the N64 era, when I got said system for Christmas.

I'm a huge JRPG fan, but I also play a lot of action games and platformers. I play some shooters, but I don't really like buying new ones all the time. Halo and Mass Effect 1/2 are really all I need to hold me over. I aspire to one day be good at fighting games, but I'm not sure I ever will be.

Consoles I own:
Current: 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP
Last: GCN, PS2, GBA
Ancient: N64, PSX, GBC, GB

Currently Playing: Valkyria Chronicles 2, Halo 3

I came home from college today for a relaxing weekend at home. I recently went super retro and listened to the Final Fantasy 7 episode of Retroforce Go. I'm usually one of those guys who is bitter to the game thanks to all of the hype, but after hearing them reminisce I just couldn't resist the urge to play it again. So I've been anxiously waiting playing FF7 again for about a week or so. Shortly after I got home today, I went to my room to grab my copy of FF7 only to find...IT WASN'T @(#$ING THERE.

I grabbed FF8, and quickly realized my error (those roman numerals blend together!), so I put 8 back and scanned the shelf for 7, but to no avail. I'll tell you right now, I'm a pretty damn organized person. My room is always clean, my games organized in alphabetical order, etc...there's no way I could have misplaced it. I went all over the house searching every place I thought it might've been, but after not playing the game for 4-5 years, God knows where it is. I've looked for about an hour now, and only stopped to share my pain with people who might actually understand.

I was a latecomer to the Playstation, because at the time I was in elementary/middle school and had no money. I finally got one early in the PS2/GCN era, and started my collection with FFIX and Chrono Cross. It took a long time for me to get FF7 though, and when I finally did it cost me about $70 (new, Greatest Hits version off amazon). I was so damn proud to have that game (well not as proud as I am to own a black-label Xenogears, but I digress). So much for that.

My options are really running out at this point. I'll keep looking, but I still have no idea why it wasn't on the shelf where it should've been. I'm losing hope, and I really don't think it'd be worth it to get another new copy ($130 on Amazon). Of course, there's always PSN...but a digital copy of one of my favorite RPGs won't wipe away the tears. =(
