Sit back, relax, and ponder about the wise glow of The Blue Crystal...
"Laugh, and grow fat!" - Fatman, MGS2
"Too much hope is the opposite of despair... An overpowering love may consume you in the end." - Vincent, FFVII
"You gotta believe!" - PaRappa, PaRappa The Rapper
"Peace is but a shadow of Death,
Desperate to forget its painful past,
Though we hope for promising years,
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears,
And while the moon shines blue,
By dawn, it will turn a scarlet hue." - Kuja, FFIX
"Warping the minds of men and shepherding the masses has always been your church's domain. You lure sheep with empty miracles and a dead god." - Sydney, Vagrant Story
"Love is deeper and darker than the black seas of hell." - Lynx, Chrono Cross
"It's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap jaw space with a tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari-kiri rock. I need scissors! 61!" - Colonel, MGS2
"It's El Pollo Diablo! The giant demon chicken of Puerto Pollo!" -- Captain Blondebeard, The Curse of Monkey Island
"I look like...Mary, don't I? You loved her, right? ...Or maybe...you hated her." - Maria, Silent Hill 2
"I'd wet my pants, if I wore any." - Max, Sam and Max: Hit the Road
"The name's Andrei Ulmeyda. I am the man with the plan. People will come to me for salvation. I have a hunch, that something's gonna happen, take this Stacy concert goin' on right here. Something very bad is gonna happen here. You know the kinda people that come to these Stacy concerts, these dudes have got energy to spare. (Motions a pumping fist) I'm talking guys who beat off four times a day! This is an epicenter of energy, man. But this Stacy they love, she's an, she's an illusion, but in the new age, there's no foolin' them, no sir, they won't be fooled by illusions anymore! Oh, oh my God! I'm comin', I'm comin'! Whaaa-hoo, whoo! (Concert building in the background explodes) See, I told ya'... This is real!" - Andrei Ulmeyda, Killer7
"Sit down, shut up, and DRINK YOUR GODDAMN TEA!!!" - Cid, FFVII
"You've all heard this before. How life has infinite possibilities. I don't believe that one bit. There weren't many paths for me to choose. Sometimes, there would only be one. From the limited possibilities I faced, the choices I made have brought me this far. That's why I value the path I chose... I want to hold true to the path that HAD to be taken." - Irvine, FFVIII
"Ooo, soft..." - Zidane, FFIX
"Why should the world exist without me? That wouldn't be fair. If I die, we all die!" - Kuja, FFIX
And the ultimate quote ever:
"How can you prove that we exist? Maybe we don't exist..." ~Vivi Ornitier~ FFIX
You know what really messes with my puny little Bioshock-struck head?
I've taken the liberty of promising to myself that from now on, no more pirated copies of Final Fantasy. EVER. Nada, nope, a-a.
How do you suppose that's bad?
Well, maybe because FFXII is out for, oh, what, a year? More? Every person I know and who plays, every other gamer I met and saw played through it. Pirated, of course. Why?
BECAUSE FFXII NEVER CAME OUT HERE.
Sure, you can get the latest Lara. You can get the latest Potter game. Hell, you can even get FISHING for basically every platform on the market, but can you buy a blockbuster game, renowned for its features and characters whom you think are women, fall in love, and then realize you could be "slightly different"? I think not.
And why, you ask? Because the only shop chain that holds games in this god-forsaken country on the Balkan, or to be precise, its owner, got into a fight with the publisher for this area. Wonderful.
And no, don't tell me I can get it online. Don't have a credit card. My parents will not allow such deeds of online shopping. So that a virus doesn't enter the card. (Completely true. Yup.)
I need FFXII goddammit! I need a new game! Persona 3 won't be coming out here, that I'm sure of, and I can't play Bioshock on my crappy machine...
Luckily, at least my best friend Butchy will get Bioshock. The Collector's Edition. We vowed to get it.
