The World is Reborn...But...

This is another video game post!

I have some favorite video games on my shelf. Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Metal Gear Solid 2, Xenosaga series, and the .Hack series.

Well I never thought I'd see the day when they would make another .Hack game let alone three. .Hack is a simulated MMORPG. There are three games (parts) to this latest series. It's so hot, it puts the first .Hack series to shame. Well at least I can say that about the 1st of the three new games. The first one is called .Hack//G.U. Vol. 1//Rebirth. The effects are SPECTACULAR, and the storyline is pretty good too.

I don't know if anyone who played the previous games noticed this, but it seems to me that it was a game of opposites. Kite (the protagonist in the first .hack games) seemed to be timid, and a goodie to shoes , while Haseo (the protagonist in the new series) seemed to say the first thing that came out of his mouth, and has a bad boy image. Some of the bosses in the first series are hero's in the new series. Then there is the hero's in the original .Hack. Three of them-They are called "The Descendants of Fianna." There are copies of there player characters in .Hack GU that are being perceived as villains in the first game and part of the second.

I know, I know-not everyone likes video games, but I do, and I beat the first one in two days, and then started it all over again a week later and beat it again. I have been waiting for months now for the new game to come out in the U.S. I know that it's a Japanese game, but can't they release it faster. I mean come on, Japan has already seen the release of all three games and I'm sitting here twiddling my fingers like a junkie waiting for the second one to be release. I know it's not because of the subtitle either. A Voice That Reminds Me of You was to long for the cover-Yes I know, so they shortened that to Reminisce. C'mon and hurry up already, I'm already "Hooked", don't you want to get me "Lined and Sinkered" as well.

I'm dying over here!

I love video games, but I am about more than a decade behind everyone else. I am in the middle of playing Tecmo Superbowl on my NES. I'm not kidding.

Not a big gamer here, but congrats on beating the bejezus outta the game:)

I've just started playing Blackhawk Strike 2...that's how lame I am!

Happy Superbowl Weekend!
