Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core

If you know me well enough, you’d know that I’m a gamer stuck a year behind time. I’m always playing something on PSP or NDS that everyone else has already played, because I either don’t have the discipline or the time. Just wanted to be clear, before you say “Crisis Core? That’s so 2008!”

I was always a Nintendo kid, back when I was a child and was laughed at when wanting to own a PSone when I already had a perfectly good-working console. FFVII however means so much to RPG players today and was so revolutionary in its time, that I’ve always been curious. But playing the original FFVII proved to be… well boring and frustrating. I’ve never been one for Turn-Based Battle systems at all, I cant’s stand being attacked and waiting in turn for attacking, really. Crisis Core is more my cup of tea, the cut-scenes are beautiful and remind you of what a genius decision you made when you decided to invest in a PSP. The enemies start off pretty easy until you get defeated by a surprise demonic summon. That’s when you realize you need some level grinding, and that’s what the side missions are for, aside from expanding the storyline and the whole experience. Your limit breaks are affected by the relationships you make and the feelings you develop for those characters, which in turn have their own cut-scenes.

I know, I’m very visual.

Anyway, enough chitchat I’m going back to playing, I leave you with some screenshots.

Holyfuckingshitttt a Summon?!?! *pauses, takes shot of tequila*

Retro Gaming Presents

Ok, so I don’t have a brand new Nintendo Wii, not even a decent Playstation 2, second generation. My boyfriend handed me down his old Nintendo GAMECUBE, and guess what I’m playing…

Mmmmm… FAIRIESS……….

I’m almost done mounting the King of Red Lions and Sailing atop Old Hyrule.  In the meantime, I’m also playing Wii’s version of Twilight Princess. I had started a year ago, but I decided to save and quit at a very crucial stage of the game, and so when I turned it back on, I was stuck. Link was looking at a destroyed bridge, a hole in the middle, and three phantom beings on the other side waiting for him. Sadder than a crash at NYSE for a yuppie, I had to delete the file and start over. It was faster this time around though.

I’m so over buying games right now. At least at this moment. I have no time at all and no money at all for new games. My stepfather is “servicing” my PSP, so at least I won’t have to buy any UMD’s for a while. On my DS, I’m still not done finishing Dementium and Phantom Hourglass (which gets so stressful everytime Link has a visit due to the Temple of the Ocean King *gags*)

To all you PS3 owners. Good Luck playing RE5. I hope you get nightmares. *cries of envy*
