Happiness Returns

So I decided to go down the shelf of games and actually beat them as I go along. There were so many I ha.... You know I posted that earlier, so nevermind.

I started Bioshock and defeated it too. I was happy. Great game, just the correct lenght... And I loved getting that Adam. Oh that Adam, I couldn't have enough. Fucking kid, just die and lemme have the Adam. Anyways, the story had a interesting twist. I was like fuuuck... Would you so kindly?! Fuck you!
(I apologize for this abomination)

So next in line was Brutal Legend, was... I got destracted by a game I played for two hours and bought over a year ago. I got bored fast and was like, fuck this. why did I even try? Did I really expect this to bring back those happy memories? I'm talking about Tales of Vesperia. Some blogger (who I cant remember his name, sorry) on this site blogged about the Tales games. I was like yeah, I've only played Tales of Symphonia, but I own Vesperia... Why haven't I let myself experience this baby?!

I bought it hoping to get those happy memories of playing Tales of Symphonia to come back to me... I have to say, that game had the most memorable characters in a video game. I will never forget the entire cast of that game, and I'll never shut the fuck up about how great it was. THIS coming from a girl who freaking hates JRPGs. There was just something about it that struck a note in my heart. It was the Linear Motion Battle System. I found it so much more interesting then turn based systems. Which make me go, ew. Because of this, I could actually get into the game.

I think I was just coming off of Fallout 3, a much more free to choose RPG. In this case, Vesperia felt like a boring rippoff. But to the point, I put Vesperia in my 360, started over again, and actually got into rather quickly. I think maybe I just got over the "choose your destiny" type games. Not as in, I won't play them, as in, I won't only play them. I was being pretty stuck up about it, and I think I've grown out of being obsessed with that experience.

Finally, while playing I thought to myself, "Ah, memories of an epic storyline and epic cast are returning." I was far from let down, and now addicted as hell. I find myself enjoying it, and I hate Estelle as much as I hated Colette. Yes, happy memories do return. Vesperia will be my obsession for awhile... So I actually prolly won't be blogging much at all... I'm gonna go play some more now.

About RetroSoldierone of us since 4:05 PM on 12.21.2009

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
