After reading the Scott Pilgrim comics, I was a bit delighted to find that I share a birthday with the titular main character. It really does explain a lot - my general slacker tendencies, my love of retro games, my sleeping-in late... (Hell, I didn't wake up today until around 3 pm. Impressive, if I do say so myself - and I do.)
Oh yeah - it's my birthday. Only happens once a year, so I guess it's sorta special. Yay. Of course, I'm far passed the days of birthdays entitling me to gifts or whatnot, so I'm just kinda hoping to get some friends together and have some cake. Mmmm, cake.
Like this, but with less girls.
There's been a complete lack of activity on my end, lately - but not for lack of trying. Work has been picking up, and it's been kinda killing me. It's not like it's been a lot of work, but any amount of work is too much for my lazy ass. Hell, I'm even going to have to work on my birthday - I mean, I don't think I've ever had a birthday off, but it still stings every time. How dare they!
The time I do have that's free from that loathsome place that gives me moneys is spent on Disgaea 3. After the anouncement of Disgaea 4, I realized, "Oh crap - I still have Disgaea 3 sitting on my shelf, completely unloved." So, I decided to do something about it.
I want that Prinny ball... and just about everything else in this picture, for that matter.
And yeah, I've been enjoying it. Normally, I hate ultra-grindy games, but Disgaea has always been an exception. Perhaps it's just the way it's dressed up, I dunno - I really can't explain why I like Disgaea, but hate just about every other game that has excessive grinding as a feature. I just do.
Kinda ticked off that I have to pay a buck to use Nekomata, though. Not only because it costs me money, but also because if I did pay the pocket change to get her, it would feel like I'm cheating because I'm using a unit that wasn't planned for the game. It's a conundrum.
Hope to have another review up soon. I'm hoping, at the very least, to have a review for Sengoku Basara 2 on the PS2 up before the PS3 sequel comes out. Makes it sorta relevant for the kids, I guess. Also going to review Pocket Fighters for the PS1 at some point - I'm kinda amazed that hasn't appeared on the PlayStation Network yet. It would be perfect for the PSP.
So, yeah - not much to really speak of, I guess. Just kinda wanted to say something. For those that would try to argue that this is just a waste of valuable blog space...
