Title: Too Good For My Good?
Posted: January 09, 2007 (01:31 AM)
After scouring many game stores in Florida during last week's visit to my mother's house, I found a copy of Sega Genesis Collection. Now that I'm back in the dorm, I popped it in to explore the buttery depths of Sega classics. One of those classics was Columns, a puzzle game that involved getting three gems in a row - not unlike a few of the puzzle games we have even today.

Unfortunately, I reached Level 100 on my first try. I know I should be patting myself on the back and frolicking over to my local Japanese store to get a well-deserved can of coconut juice, but I was irate. Maybe it's because the game was too easy or that I was too good for my own good. But it's most likely because I wanted to stop at Level 34, when the gems were falling out of the sky like anvils, but since it was my first try, I wanted to see how far I could get without dying. This equated to about two and a half hours worth of time.

I'm not sure how I feel at this point. I'm glad, mad, grateful, and spiteful. So I guess I'm feeling empty.

(Sigh...)

Why are you wasting your time with Columns when Phantasy Star II is right there on the disk!

Plan to kill EmP:

1) Say that I don't know what Phantasy Star is.

2) Get a hammer while he's stunned.

3) Eat lime jello.

You should have saved your money for Rogue Galaxy instead.

You are joking about not knowing what Phantasy Star is, right? I haven't played it, except for the Phantasy Star Online games, but I know it by reputation. I have the Sega Genesis collection disc, too. I'll probably use it to play Phantasy Star 2-4, but first I need to play me some Sonic!

Yeah, I was just goofing off with not knowing about Phantasy Star, though I must admit that I have only heard it through the grapevine of reputation. I played Phantasy Star Online for a while on the Dreamcast, but as a few noted, the original series on the Genesis were different and better overall. I'm actually trying to get through Sonic the Hedgehog as well, so I guess Phantasy Star will have to hold for a while.
