Updating My Games Again

Traded-in games



I finished Lost Planet 2 campaign, playing co-op with my friend. Sure, the game is good, but there are not enough reasons for me to playing it again, so I decided to sell it. And then there is a case with Resonance of Fate. The earlier plot is confusing, not making any sense. The battle supposed to be hard, but since I already anticipated the difficulty, somewhat it became easy. Having no patience and desire to continue with the game, I traded it too.

I want to trade Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey too, but I forgot to put the cartridge inside the game box when I traded the other games. Maybe I'll sell it later.

At first, I though I want to sell them on eBay, but the process will take a long time and I'm kinda lazy. So I decided to trade the game at Gamestop with the upcoming game which is...

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker



I never missed any main series of MGS, so I decided to buy this one too. It is on PSP, so I had a doubt at first. But after I read a preview (here) and watched a review (here), my heart was set. So I traded those two games stated earlier and used the credit to pre-order Peace Walker.

The price is $39.99, but since I pre-ordered the Collector's Edition, I need to pay extra $10. Luckily the credit I received for trading the two games covered up the price more than enough~

I don't think I will buy any games this month, that is why I decided to buy the Collector's Edition. Plus, it is $10 less than usual price for console games (but same price as standard Wii games).

Today, I looked up at Gamestop, and I found that the Collector's Edition had been removed from the site. Meaning that I was one of the last person the get the Collector's Edition. Even the free camouflage bandana (pre-order offer) that should come with the game had gone. How lucky I am~

After watching the review, I was worried because he said that playing alone will be hard. Since I have two PSPs right now, I persuaded Shafiq to buy another copy of Peace Walker and I can let him borrow my PSP. Of course, he declined, unless I bought the game for him too (haha). Then, he suggested me to rent the game. After doing a little research, I had come to this

GameFly



What is GameFly? To make it short, you can rent any set number of games from the company per month. I really wanted to try the service since January this year, but...erm...I can't remember why I didn't. Never mind.

In normal condition, I should pay $24.95/month and I can rent two games at one time. But since I only wanted the Peace Walker, I make full use of the trial version which last for ten days. That should be enough. I will cancel my account before they charge me. Plus, I'll be going back to Malaysia, so I don't think it will worth it if I subscribe to GameFly now. So I will definitely subscribe after I come back here, sharing the payments with Shafiq. Right now, I just want to know how good the service is (and get my Peace Walker for Shafiq)

Going back to Malaysia

I miss the scenery from my room

I will be going back to Malaysia by the end of this month, and I will bring my PS3 along so I won't get bored at home (unlike some of my friends who left me here alone while they went back to Malaysia and complained how bored they were at home. mwahahahaha )

Since I rarely played my Wii, I decided to bring it along too, and left it at my home in Malaysia for my brother and his friends to play. He asked for a bowling game. Wii Sports Resort would be perfect but unfortunately I had sold it to buy Final Fantasy XIII (hahaha). So I will need to buy it again later.

In my inbox, there is an email from Gamestop that is perfect for my situation right now~~~

Trading my Wii



There is a reason for this. To my brother at Malaysia, don't worry. I will still bring a Wii for you~ I will update this tomorrow, ok? Coz' I have something important to do tomorrow before I can make a post for this part.

Sudden increase in offer



Right now, I am really pissed with Gamestop. Yesterday, I traded-in my games since there was an offer of 30% more credit if I trade my games toward any game. It expires at June 6, so I went to Gamestop as earlier as I could. But today, they increase the offer to 50%!!!!!!! ****!

You can look at it here.

That is all for now. There a lot more I want to update, but I will do it after I finish my summer class next week. See ya~

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")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

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…
