I first started gaming when I was 7 years old, I think. My father went on a trip to Hong Kong and I asked for a computer but he bought me a famicom instead of a desktop pc. So I played the classics like Super Mario, Double Dragon, Galaga among others. Gaming has interfered with my studies so they have to take it away. After sometime I lost interest in gaming. The game that awakened the beast in me is none other than Final Fantasy VII and from there I never looked back.
Aren't we all sick and tired of this whole Sony VS Hackers debacle that disabled the PSN. Right now there are a total of two attacks against Sony and another one on its way. The result? PSN might still be down after the week's pass.
I am not much affected by this outage. I am quiet happy with my single player experience but enough is enough! Who do this fuckers think they are? They are screwing with millions of gamers for what? To bring down the tyrant known as Sony for going after Geohot. Yeah the hacker who opened pandora's box so that others can use the PS3 to launch homebrews and other goodies. Geohot said he didn't crack the ps3 to entice others for piracy, but to help gamers such as myself to make the most out of my ps3. That is good and noble and all, and the possibilities of using the ps3 to our hearts content is only limited by our imagination. Ok you cracked it but didn't you ever think that you also cracked the damn thing for piracy. Oh what you didn't intend it for piracy? Are you fucking high? Now that you cracked it, piracy is possible whether you intend to or not. What? You have no control on what other people may or may not do with the master key? They said the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I don't blame sony for taking action against Geohot because piracy will hurt their business. Not only that hard working people will lose their jobs because of piracy. It's a chain reaction. And if hackers would want to have homebrews on their consoles or whatever the hell they want to do with it like the ps3 perfoming the functions of a fuck doll why don't they just make their own consoles? They are smart right surely they can do it. They cracked the ps3, hacked into Sony's servers, surely they can make their own console?
The whole Geohot-Sony legal battle ended with a settlement but it didn't end there. Some group of basement dwelling virgins decided to continue the fight for gamer freedom and as a result brought down the PSN. Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't see any streets filled with gamers like a Libiyan revolt asking for these nut jobs for any favors. Hey assholes all we want is to play online take your hippie revolts somewhere else where it won't affect our gaming time. I do say I wish there is a stronger word than fuck you to express my feelings to these assholes.
It's been almost a week since PSN went into a blaze of stinking hacker shit. Some gamers are easily affected by this since a majority of their time is spent on multiplayer. Being an old school gamer I am not much affected by the outage. I do play multiplayer from time to time like Killzone 3 and AC: Brotherhood but since I don't have my closest friends on PSN for reasons that they don't have a ps3 or they just don't enjoy multiplayer that much. I do have friends on my psn account from a local forum here but I just don't feel comfortable playing with strangers. Guess that is just the curse of being an old school gamer, somewhat a bit of a loner. So right now all I could do is enjoy single player action. I just hope that they take too long fixing PSN.
I just got two gaming magazines a while ago. It was a bit old but since I have nothing better to do why not browse through it, bad idea. I don't really know why would anyone would let such an idiot write an article. The article is basically about how The Testers from the PSN is a worthless show. I don't really watch The Testers and I could give a rats ass about that reality show. What really pissed me off was how the bastard is this know it all that whatever comes out of his ass is all sunshine and rainbow.
First he writes that there are somethings that some people don't really want in gaming. Namely Little Big Planet, Home and Move. Ugh are you fucking high?! Little Big Planet was a Game of the Year. Millions of user created levels. Move sold millions and both Move and Kinect are standing toe to toe with Wii. Home....ugh well that one is up debate. A bunch of guys working for lower than minimum wage, they earn more than you, idiot. Hey Jackass! Just because you don't like it or can't afford it or live in your own little rock in the middle of nowhere doesn't mean you can run your mouth like a fucking expert in the field. Yeah expert a PHD in douchebaggery.
There are a lot of games that I played over and over again. I just believe that if a game is that good it must be played at least twice or even more. There are a lot of factors that I consider before playing a game again. I would replay it if it is part of a great franchise cough...Metal Gear Solid...cough. It could be nostalgia or I would play the game again because the next installment in the series is just a few weeks away. Sometimes I just play the game again because there is no new game coming out or I'm just bored out of my fucking mind and I need a release from my reality.
It's really hard to choose that one game that I go over and over again to play. There are a lot of contenders. There's Metal Gear Solid in which I always finish in extreme mode. Final Fantasy which always hooks me into the world in which I have to get every ultimate weapon, get all the summons, and kick the biggest, baddest bastards in the game, yeah you! I'm looking at you ruby, emerald, Ultima, and Omega! Like every Halloween I play or Marathon(If it's a part of a franchise) survival horror games, Dead Space, Resident Evil, Dead Rising, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill
But out of all the great titles out there there is one title that stands above the rest. Yes, even above Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid and that game is......
PERSONA 4! Let me explain. The other games that I have mentioned including those that I didn't list due to lapse in my memory, are really great games, some even better than Persona 4 but here's the thing, I only finished those games one at a time. I played it once wait for a few months then play it again or whenever I feel like it. I finished Persona 4 5 times.......in a row! I finished a JRPG 5 times in a row. Correct me if I'm wrong but that is unheard of. If my Playstation 2 were still alive and kicking I would still be playing Persona 4 up to now. The game is just fun. The story is superb and keeps you wondering who the killer is, at least in your first playthrough. The soundtrack and voice acting is awesome. No character is really annoying unlike other characters in other games cough...Vanille...cough...Snow..cough. Replay value you say, collect all the personas, try to date a different girl every playthrough. yeah I know total nerd. So for me it's Persona 4 because it's the only game that I played 5 times in a row and no game has broken that record to this day.
