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
Well, the first day of December has been officially over for roughly 2 hours now…and we’re that much closer to the inevitable release of DOD3 in 18 days! Now that we’re heading into the final stretch, recent news has not been all that astounding, although we have had a couple awesome tid-bits!
More Soundtrack News!
Emi Evans has finally been given the official go-ahead to announce that she is indeed back performing vocals for the DOD3 soundtrack. You may recall her from the exquisite work she did for the Nier soundtrack. A sample of her newest work for DOD3 can be streamed directly from Square Enix’s page with other info about the soundtrack. As I’ve mentioned before, you can see that there is still room to hear 3 extra tracks on the page….but they are currently unavailable. Maybe they will upload a new track weekly until the release? Hmmm! Definitely bookmark this page:
And hurray for me, I'm being lazy. So if you'd like to read the rest of the updates, they're all on the main DOD3 blog here: http://drakengard-3.com ^^;;
