Book of the Past:
I originally got into gaming when my brother broke his collarbone from a stupid skateboarding stunt my father allowed him to do ("Hey, son, won't it be cool if you hold onto the back of my car as I drive around town!?"). As a get well soon gift, my parents bought him a NES, from which his gaming days began. Me, I just enjoyed watching him play, mostly RPGs until I tried them myself eventually. My first game was Dragon Quest and I remember quitting shortly after the first dragon killed me. lol
Since then, though, I have enjoyed games for multiple reasons, mostly because I love stories and characters...and games are the perfect way for me to experience the hard work and strife that the characters have to go through. It's fun and I feel like I can play a part in their story. It's a much better story than mine.
My favorite RPGs of the past are (in no certain order):
Shadow Hearts 1 & 2
Having an evening job does little to help me be a morning person. Instead, I end up staying up until 4 or 5 in the morning to go back to work by 2pm the following day. I still get 7-8 hours of sleep, but as car as human contact goes, yeah, not much going on there.
So to help pass the time, I've been busy reporting DOD3 news whenever it should pop up. Last night I found an article by Famitsu that reported there would be DOD3 Themes for the PS3 in the No.1300 issue of Famitsu magazine. I quickly went down to the nearest convenience store that stocks Famitsu and picked up the magazine to check out the DLCs. They do look pretty nice on screen, although my iPhone can't take the best pictures. heh
Here is a quick look at some of the images…

Also, there's just one more week to get involved with the Halloween Art Contest!! There's only been one submission made thus far, so if you're interested in DOD3 *and* free stuff, be sure to check out more information on this event!!
