Motoko, Hibiki, Fujiko, Mikiri, Zero

Last post was about my recent activities, and now you will be forced to read about my gaming activities *evil grin*

Let's start with what I play on my PSP. I have Dissidia 012 in my PSP-3000, but I stopped playing after I got back home. My experience with the game is nothing short of awesomeness, and I spent 80+ hours on it, but I wish it has online multiplayer function like the PS3, not only the ad-hoc multiplayer (playing multiplayer locally). Thhe ad-hoc play function on PS3 works well, but only how many of PS3 users also have a PSP? That's why I am excited for PS Vita.

On my PSP Go, I stopped progressing in Final Fantasy VIII for no good reasons. I don't feel like playing it.

Or maybe because this guy is a total jerk

I still don't get why Ocarina of Time is great. I am still early in the game, so I still have my hope on. But the save feature turned me off. It doesn't matter where I save the game, the game starts back at Link's house every time I load the game. Why the hell the game won't allow me to continue on where I just saved the game? I don't want to spent most of time just travelling, and it defeats the purpose of being a portable game.

You always start back at Kokiri Forest no matter where your last save is.
Last week I downloaded Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! from the DSiware. It is a puzzle game I bought for only $7, and it worth more than my money. The game is simple, you just need to set a path for the Mini Marios (who will just walk straight) by using the pink blocks. The more you progress, the more type of terrains, enemies and traps that are revealed. I'm surprised by how the developer manage to get this game become complicated by using such a simple mechanic. I like this type of thinking very much,

And can't help the fact that Mini Marios are cute
On my PS3, I am still playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3, using different combinations of characters to make my close-to-perfect team.

With Zero on every team, of course

Also last week, Capcom announced Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, which will includes 12 new characters, tweaks and extras to the original. I doubt it will be an add-on, but I am willing to buy it. The new characters are:

Marvel side: Hawkeye, Ghostrider (!!), Rocket Racoon, Dr. Strange (!), Nova and Iron Fist

Capcom side: Firebrand, Frank West (!!), Phoenix Wright (!!!), Vergil (!!). Nemesis and Strider Hiryu (!)

Phoenix Wright. Nuff' said.

No objection here, buddy

I am struggling to finish Bioshock 2. I finally see what's the appeal behind the game, and I can see myself playing the game for at least one more time.

And raping Big Sister every time
Again, the title doesn't have anything to do with the post. It's the characters for a manga. I like Hibiki first, then Mikiri, and Fujiko. Don't give a damn about Mokoto and Zero; they should just sleep forever and give the host role to Hibiki.

I just played Catherine demo, and I find liking the game. I hope it will arrive in Malaysia by this weekend :)

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…
