Black Mage keychain eludes me

Colette posted a story about some Chocobo Tales Keychains on Ebay about a week ago. Absolutely enamored with the Black/White Mage one I took a chance on it. I figured at 10$ I can't go wrong even if I don't get the black mage.

http://www.destructoid.com/final-fantasy-fan-alert-chocobo-tales-keychains-70804.phtml

Today they arrived in the mail. and was greeted by not two boxes with random keychains in them but THREE boxes with keychains in them. And one of those boxes gave me double the keychains!! and a Cait sith pin!

AND STILL NO FUCKING MAGE!! ARRRRRRRG






Now if you'll excuse me I think I'm going to see if that seller is still selling more keychains.
not that I don't like the chains, I like the translucent Chocobo and the Slime is a part of my keychain now. but FUUUUUUCK those mages are damn EPIC!!   read

Goodwill Hunting

After hearing Dyson and his visits to that retro graveyard called Goodwill. I decided pay a visit to a goodwill I discovered nestled away close to where I work on my way home yesterday

And while I might not have made out like a bandit. I did find 2 old games


kinda happy about Myst, believe it or not i've never played the game before. hopefully it runs on vista, i don't see why not. they also had a brand new copy of MBL2K7 for the 360 but I passed on it


I just wanted to show that its not just Dysons goodwill. If you have one close to anywhere within driving distance you owe it to yourself to check it out. and dont be ashamed to dig through piles of used crap CD's honestly, inspect each and every one. thats probably the best advice I can give you. good luck D'toiders.

Edit: doing a search online I found two more goodwills within a 10 minute drive. looks like i might have to pay each of them a visit before the sun sets   read

Lost Odyssey review up

Seeing as how my 360 just went on a 3 month vacation to Texas I sadly wont be picking this title up at day one. and because i don't want to spoil the experience for myself I forbade myself from reading the whole review. So I skipped the meat and potato's and went right for the last 3 paragraphs DESSERT!!

This was not supposed to happen to me

NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO


I knew this day would come,

as soon as that launch unit guaranty ran out...that ended after 2 years right?

sigh, I'm so upset by this, I really am. one would think that a functioning 360 for 2 years I have no right to complain compared to what all of you have gone through with your 360's but to hell with that, consoles should never break period. No system, as far back as my Atari 2600. has ever "broke" I left my PSone on accidentally 2 days strait and it broke but that was my own stupidity. i understand these things happen. but this is a first for me so I really want to lash out, Perhaps tomorrow after work I'll try the towel trick or whatever other methods the internet has conjured up. thank goodness it's late i can go to sleep and not have to worry about this until tomorrow afternoon   read

BREAKING NEWS: CLOVERFIELD PREQUEL

Wow, just wow. As if the hype weren't already at a fever pitch. J.J. Abrams made a Cloverfield prequel quietly while we salivated over it's predecessor.

Job well done all around, on the greatest viral marketing campaign ever made for a motion picture

38$ for Assassins creed? PSH please!

Saw the ad for the discounted Ass Creed at target this morning. thought i would pick that up on my sundaily visit to target (hey it's literally across the block. I know the guards by name)

anyhows I was about to grab myself a copy when i saw something 10x better. Tomb Raider anniversary for the new lowered price of 30$

So let it be known for those who want the game, but held off on the 40$ pricetag (frugality FTW) Targets new price lists it as 30$ and they keep it outside the glass cabinet sitting amongst the budget titles.

I'll take that over repetitious gameplay any day!

In other news I'm trying to teach my 3 year old nephew this song. if successful I'll make him internet famous lol

dear diarytoid: Birthdaytoid edition

So today I celebrate....nix that i haven't celebrated my birthday in 2 years lol

Well today I turn 29, at this point my birthday just becomes another day. And with it coming only 2 weeks after X-mas you don't really expect anyone to buy you a damn thing anymore. Everyones wallet is still feeling the holiday pain. and it's not like I require gifts at my age anyhow. though yesterdays Retroforce was a nice

Although I would like somebody to renew my XBL subscription. It ran out Dec 28th. and with all the live problems I decided to wait, I at least have a handful of the Free 48 hour trials that comes with nearly every 360 game, so I'll use those to play Omega 5 with everyone tomorrow. I'll probably Renew by the end of the month. I still have 2 DS games that need completing before I grab anything new for my 360

Well i guess i'll leave it at that....January 8th...just like any other Tuesday:)

Big Up to Elvis Presley. it's his birthday too!

Did the internets fail me?

Or have I failed myself?

Patapon. Why did nobody on the WWW alert me to this games release overseas? Watch as I scurry to not download it. WATCH AND LAUGH AS I SCURRY NEARLY TWO MONTHS AFTER EVERYBODY ELSE DOES TO NOT DOWNLOAD THE ISO

Don't even get me started on "Anata Wo Yurusanai"

I don't know whether or not to be mad at you or myself. I'm usually on top of this kinda stuff.   read

Dear Diarytoid: X-mas haul edition

Did a pretty good haul this year Diarytoid if I don't say so myself

New Dell PC with Windows Vistugh. so far no problems. but why in the Christ do I have to confirm everything I do? thats annoying as all hell. theres gotta be someway to turn that off.

A 2008 calender which wouldn't be sweet at all cept for the fact it had DRAGONS on it. And I luv me some dragons like Chad loves his dolphins.

A coffee mug that I can hook up via USB port to keep my Java warm. cause I literally bleed caffeine.

A fountain with DRAGONS all over. except it don't work.....sister failed me there. fuck that fountain is going to look sweet perched between my monitor and tower. resonating with a blue glow.

WiiZapper to which I promptly put together and ran around the house with my zapper cocked sideways and screamed "NIGGA RUN YO SHIT" while wearing a bandanna over my mouth and wearing the following gift



This could quite possibly be the worst fucking gift I ever got. honestly. My Father is always spot on when it comes to my clothes he knows what i like to wear so I don't know what compelled him to buy me that eyesore

Don't even get me started the matching jeans "Shiver"

Aside from that minor speedbump Christmas was awesome! lots of family and good times were had

After work today I got my last gift. "The Gamespot B2GO after X-mas sale"

I wanted a used RE 4 to play with my new Wii Zapper., but no luck. I did manage to snag Strangers Wraith in the rare chance it becomes BC on my 360 5 years from now lol.

Also bought Shadow Hearts: From the New World for the PS2

And Crackdown which was shockingly only 20$

No DiaryToid. not a bad haul at all.
Heres to next year!   read

My Retroforce inspired RETRO-lution

I listened to the newest episode of Retroforce to/from work today, Chad confessed to playing Mario RPG numerous times but never being able to finish it. I feel Chad's pain because I have attempted to beat SMRPG at least 3 times and never got it done, despite totally loving that game to death.

So I decided to make beating SMRPG my resolution for 08. But then I figured Why not include every game I regret never finishing. and actually beat them this time.

So with great humility I give you my new years RETRO-lution. a list of games I shamefully admit to never completing

ICO - Ill beat this first. I still have my save file at the point where the bridge breaks and the girl gets taken away.

SMBRPG - 3 times and never got to finish it

Earthbound - rented it once as a tyke. always wanted to go back and beat it.

Final FantasyII - Dude Zeromus at 13 years was NOT easy. I always felt I was missing something. I probably was. I'd rather wait for the DS remake though.

Super Metroid - The only Metroid i never beat is Only Metroid I never played. Honestly I don't regret this at all. this is just a personal drive to play and beat this game

Crystalis and Guardian Legend - when I think 8 bit failures these two gems come to mind.

So yeah... thats my list. Im sure theres are alot of good games I never beat...though none i regret as much as the games on this list. wish me luck   read

I'm playing Ur Culdecept Saga,

Weighing in at 620MB and Looking pretty good. I was afraid they would use messy sprites on high-res backgrounds like Disgaea 3. but no. everything here looks and sounds as it should. The cards are drawn well and gameplay is exactly like i remember it. Im not sure when this is coming out. but hopefully not too soon. I have a monster Queue waiting for me after the New years :/

So get ur ass on XBLMarketplace and play some medieval monopoly.   read
