My January Will End With a Great Start

Just got my copy of Final Fantasy XIII-2 from Gamestop! I also bought the Strategy Guide (Collector's Edition) with it, since I got my refund from the price drop of Resident Evil Revelations (It's $40 now). They have discounts if you buy a guide with the respective game and another discount if you have the Pro Membership card. I'm a happy person right now...How long has it been since the last time I played a good JRPG? That's why this game makes me really excited.

I just started playing it, and there are a few things that caught my attentions:

1. They provide a Beginner's Primer, a summary for what happened during Final Fantasy XIII (divided by chapters). It's a nice addition for people who never played the original, and also for myself since the story doesn't really make any sense back when I played it.

2. This might be the first time a Final Fantasy game has a difficulty setting (I might be wrong though), although only Easy and Normal modes are available. From the reviews I read, the conclusion I got is this: don't ever change the difficulty into Easy. Yup, you read that right.

3. Some sweet extras are given to those who has the save file for Final Fantasy XIII, including themes for your PS3/360 and some hidden treasures in the game. Not sure if you need to complete Final Fantasy XIII first or you only need the save file. I think it's the latter.

Well I am working tonight and tomorrow night, so I won't be able to concentrate to play it maybe until weekend. Also goodbye Modern Warfare 3, we'll meet again someday.

On the side note, I also went to bookstore to get my textbooks. Thank God I got them cheaper by renting the books. I still need to get one more book before this weekend :( The textbook for Biology is freaking thick! Plus expensive too...At least I can start doing self revisions from now.


  1. You make me jealous!


  2. that's my purpose mwahaha

    and you should look how much Hope has grown up, I'm sure you'll love him mooooore

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.

The Master Algorithm, written by Pedro Domi…


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…
