Resonance of an Overlooked Classic: Follow-Up

This blog is a followup for a previous blog, found here.

I was checking Video Game Countdown on a regular basis looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII, Resonance of Fate and God of War III.

Through a series of events too complex to mention here (involving a simple favor being blown way out of proportion,) I ended up sitting in front of my PC, a small stack of PC game cases on the desk in front of me. Somehow, I ended up with The Sims 3.

Pictured: "Real" Game?

So I derailed all my plans to buy Resonance of Fate, coming approximately one week after FF13 did, and bought the first thing that became available to me.

I don't know as of yet whether my time will allow me to juggle Final Fantasy XIII and The Sims 3, and whether, like a cartoon, I will struggle when a cartoon furry bastard throws more stuff for me to juggle in the form of God of War III and Resonance of Fate.

The Sims 3 didn't just derail my well thought plans when it came out of the blue, it destroyed it.

I'll keep you posted on the epic conclusion, which you can expect sometime this month.

About SAMA1984one of us since 3:01 AM on 01.11.2010

I'm a lifelong gamer who has enjoyed video games through the thick and thin of my life. I'm also a person who speaks my mind often, which is why I chose to start this blog here where others can discuss what I have to say.

Originally a Nintendo fan, I've turned my back on it when they turned their collective backs on their old following. Currently, my Wii is still connected to my TV and I play with it from time to time.

Had an Xbox 360, which got the red ring five times before I put it out of its misery, and got an Elite, which got the E74 error and couldn't be replaced or fixed. Currently, it's on a shelf in some game repair shop, collecting dust, and that doesn't look like it's about to change anytime soon.

Have a PS3, which is going strong. It's currently my primary console.

I also have a DS and am planning to pick up a PSP as soon as Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out. And a PC that runs Crysis, Supreme Commander and World of Warcraft, often at the same time.

You see, my posts may get responses suggesting I'm a fanboy or a hater, which is why I clarify this here: I tried all consoles, and didn't cling onto them when they started to fail, either in company support or in hardware/software.

My favorite genres are real time strategy and first person shooters, and I often turn to role-playing games and fighting games, with a bit of platforming on the side.

I hate, HATE music games. I love the songs you can play in them, but I hate the concept.
