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
So, I am due to move out of my apartment tomorrow, have everything packed up by the end of today and what do I do? Play games. Perfect.
I don't know what time I started playing Xenoblade again last night; it must have been around 9:00 or 9:30 because I needed to get my cat more food and litter, but once I started I didn't have much awareness for the time. Before I knew it, it was going on 3am. Woops. And then I just had to post half of the videos to YouTube before I went to sleep. By that time it was about 4:30. So sorry to the gas man who just came to disconnect my gas stove at 9:30 in the morning while I'm suffering from my usual wicked sinus attacks. They are absolutely wicked.
Anyway, I recorded a bunch of really bad quality videos on my iPhone as I was playing last night if anyone is interested. Let me warn you, though. I am at the end of the game. ^^; I recorded the ending. So these are mostly for YOU, spoiler whores! You know who you are! I'm a bad one myself. But please, if you don't want to be spoiled about the ending or even who's on your team at the ending, please don't watch. You have been warned, so don't cry to me later when you realize that maybe you should have heeded my warning!! HAHAHA *evilness*
The first two videos are not spoilerish, although it may indirectly spoil something for a given character. If you don't mind, however, they are some pretty good boss fights. And I may swear. Sorry. ^^;
The rest are in the "Ending" sequence of videos that I took. Unfortunately, though, I guess I recorded them too long for YouTube to accept so I had to crop them down, which is why there are so many freaking parts. Sorry about that.
I've put all the videos in one, handy playlist. Enjoy!
