Gaming Poetry Blog?
January 31, 2008

Does such a thing exist? The idea of doing this popped into my head, as I was thinking about the music from Gradius V while I was outside smoking a cigarette. (Freshly chopped, *ahem*)

But anyway, I'm into poetry and I'm into gaming so why shouldn't the medias get its own subgenre in poetry? That's a bit of a broad statement, but just leaving this as a note to myself...

This all kind of occurred to me when I thought of the track title from Gradius V's soundtrack called "INTERMEZZO" referring to every part in gradius between stages where some dudes come out and they're a chance for 4ish powerups before the level gets underway. A lasting theme in the Gradius series. It's pretty interesting to consider those parts as say, intermissions or interludes before the real battle.

Silent Hill Origins Tonight...
January 28, 2008

I finally picked this game up again after playing it for about five minutes. I was biding my time before, but tonight seemed like the night to resume the game. Played for about a few hours. I think it is mandatory to play Silent Hill games in the dark, especially a portable Silent Hill as Origins has been released on PSP. However, it will also be being ported to PS2 or something.

Argh! And more portable shmuppin'
January 24, 2008

I can't seem to find the right angle to approach my Star Ocean 3 review at, it's only about 50% written but I'm afraid I've turned to liking it so much the past month that I can't even describe why I like it without sounding like a fanboy or whatever. Well, I need to make an outline of the main things to talk about, I think that will help me prod it along. I haven't reviewed any RPGs before and there's so much content to talk about, it's kind of disorienting compared to the simpler games I've tried my shot at reviewing.

It's been too long since I got one out, and now I'm debating on a Gitaroo Man Lives! review. Hoooo.

Oops! That SO3 review will come... hopefully soon!
January 14, 2008

I forgot about this site for a week, somehow. I don't know how that happened really, but I had many-a-day when my schedule was totally wack, so maybe my memory was failing me for a while. Who knows? Anyway, I've been sinking some more time into Star Ocean 3, I swear, the game is like crack to me right now. I'm finally doing the bonus dungeon content for the first time, too! It's pretty exciting. My team is just wicked. And I did think of a fun way to write another paragraph of my review, that is, to detail a few seperate battles in an exciting kind of way. I'll indulge and go ahead and describe how my party eliminates baddies right now:

Twinbee Portables!
January 04, 2008

Checking out Twinbee Portables on the PSP a bit more. Pop'N Twinbee is really fun. I've been stickin' to Twinbee De tana for the most part with the game, but gave Pop'n a try since De tana was pissing me off. Heh, really fun stuff. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this little UMD for a long time. The Twinbee games are just so happy, makes me wanna play more Cute 'em ups. I'm browsing the Music Gallery now... lets you listen to every single track from all 5 Twinbee games it includes. Some awesome tracks, and I read that Michuru Yamane did some work on the Twinbee soundtracks, same woman who did the Symphony of the Night soundtrack. Some really catchy, fun songs.

Will someone play Twinbee on the PSP with me? I'm in Minnesota, by the way. Hehe.

PSP memory qualms
January 01, 2008

So I picked up this memory from the brand LeisureStore, based in HongKong, off of ebay. Got a 1gig stick of this stuff but the problem with it is it won't play games, or update your PSP's firmware. Keep in mind, it's not specifically designed for the PSP. But I wasn't so lucky with this purchase. So now I'm gonna have to shell out another $15 or something for a good stick of memory so I can play Beats on my PSP. D'oh.

So stay away from LeisureStore if you want your memory to play games. Otherwise, it seems to contain other kinds of data on the PSP just fine.

But I'm thinkin' I might just get some A/V out cables so I can play on a TV. Those would come in handy. Costs about the same as a gig or two of memory, anyway.
