One Game a Week

(Edited on God of War III's comment and Strange Journey's comment)

Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations
Released: February 16
Pre-ordered at
Done playing, traded-in for Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey
I am a fan of Ace Attorney series, and I love problem-and-case solving

Comments: I love this game very much, and it is more accessible and less dragging than the series before. I always love the Ace Attorney series, and this one is no exception. Interesting new characters, and also old characters make a comeback. The only things that didn't feel like enough is that the challenge is relatively easy, but it is still satisfying.

Heavy Rain
February 23
Bought at Gamestop store
Finished several times, and on the way to achieve all the trophies
I'd like to try a story-driven game, plus it is a PS3 exclusive

Comments: This game will be one of the most memorable game in term of story. This game delivers a very deep and emotionally involving experience. You are the one who will be driving the story, and your every choices will determine the outcome, like a wave that spreads through a pool of water. There are some plot holes, but it can be forgiven.

Battlefield Bad Company 2
March 2
Bought at Gamestop store
On hiatus due to Final Fantasy XIII
Just wanted to try another first-person shooter other than Modern Warfare 2

Comments: Still haven't played much, but this game is definitely for multi-player. So don't buy it if you only want to play single player campaign.

Final Fantasy XIII
March 9
Pre-ordered at Gamestop, traded-in with two games for lower price
Still playing, only halfway through
No need for reasons, I know I NEED this game

Comments: If you ever played Final Fantasy series, you know why you would want this game. As most western reviewers said, this game is very linear until later part of the game, but it didn't stopped me from buying. I am enjoying every last bit of it, from the great scenery to the engaging and intuitive battle system.

God of War III
March 16
Pre-ordered at Gamestop store, traded with two games for lower price
Just received it
Guys who don't love God of War are gays

Comments: I played both of the earlier series, but it doesn't satisfy me that much. Hope this will be the best and memorable. Zainal has been making his way through the game and he enjoying it like a kid who received a new toy, except that this toy is for real guys, not gays.

Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey
March 23
Pre-0rdered at Gamestop store, traded-in with Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorneyy Investigations
Still waiting
I'm fan of RPG, and Shin Megami Tensei series

Comments: I am always a fan of RPG and Shin Megami Tensei series is rivaling with Final Fantasy series for the top in my list. I just realized that it will come with a soundtrack CD and a poster! Now I am eager to wait~(More comments in the future)

I know it sounds crazy, but I just can't help it. Luckily, spring break is coming and in April, there are no games that caught my interest :)

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")


Finally, I reached Disc 2 in FFVIII. Still on the way to rescue Squall from the torture room. Speaking of Squall, remember the time where he was stabbed by icicle spear from Edea? There's an interesting theory where Squall was already dead at that time (Aerith died after being stabbed by Sephiroth's Masamune once, too). Everything that happened after that was, you guess it, just a dream. Click here if you want to read the full theory.

EDIT: One theory also states that Square had some other plan for Aerith. Here's the link.

Let say this theory is true. During the start of Disc 2, we were brought to the dream of Laguna. So it is a dream, inside a dream. Looks like Square had done it way before Christopher Nolan's Inception!


*ehem* anyway, most fan's theory are awesome to read. But no one can truly justify and give best explaination on where the hell do Necron in Final Fantasy IX came from. There were no hints or whatsoever about him, and suddenly he appeare…

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
