Plans for the rest of the year.

I still have to get a new computer but I've decided to blow the money on a HDMI-enabled monitor as well as more games.

The Last Remnant - Really late on this one. So far it's very addictive and definitely reminds me of Square's Romancing Saga series in terms of progression and combat. Definitely liking this one.

Test Drive Unlimited - Kind of an MMO for car fans this game boils down to exploring a Hawaiian island, participating in races, and buying cars. I've put some time into this one before but in my opinion it wasn't enough.

Burnout Paradise - I've played Burnout 2 through Revenge yet I never got around to this one. This is another matter that clearly must be rectified.

Tomb Raider Underworld: I haven't played a TR game since the first one. I'm not exactly sure why I chose the last one to pick up but I'm not an entirely sensible person so whatever.

The Red Star - This forgotten number by XS games took forever to release only to quietly bomb and end with the death of yet another developer. I wonder how the game itself turned out.

Devil May Cry 1 - With Bayonetta coming real soon(or already out if you imported/live in Japan) I realized I never played through the first game.

Viewtiful Joe - Picked this up as well cause I never played it. Should be fun.

Guilty Gear Overture - This game was dead even prior to arrival cause it was everything but a new 2D Guilty Gear game. Thankfully for fans of that series Blazblue is available and it's quite nice. Regardless Overture isn't for the close-minded. This is probably the closest thing to a tower-defense game I'll ever actually play.

Tsukiyo Ni Saraba - In Europe this game is known as 10,000 Bullets. Why 10,000? I have no clue. Anyway this is a Max Payne-esque shooter with lots of slow-motion and thugs to shoot.

As far as I'm concerned this will be it for at least the rest of the year. There is Bayonetta on Jan 5th and possibly a couple other things but other than that my wallet should be relatively safe until March.

Not sure what else I'm going to do though as I can't guarantee any updates without a computer. I may have to consider using a library computer or something. A better option would probably be for me to shut up about all these updates I'm not doing but eh..

Okay I thought I was getting my laptop back but guess what? It's dead. There's no saving it at this point so my only option is a new computer. Throw in the fact that I just replaced my car battery and those plans of buying a new HDTV/PS3/PSP/??? are slipping away rapidly. Looks like I'll have to put together a little ebay sale before long if I'm ever going to get out of this dinky 19" Sylvania TV that my room-mate loaned me.

But enough whining it's time for a look at what games I've picked up since the last update -

Rygar (PS2) - Like Ninja Gaiden this 80s game saw a revival in the form of a Devil May Cry-esque 3D action game. So far I can say I've done much worse for less than $5. The soundtrack is fantastic as well.

Sacred 2 - I've said before that I'm a sucker for loot-based action RPGs and Sacred 2 is definitely all about that. I actually just quit this game because I am sick of it. I'll explain myself just as soon as I can put together a reliable update again.

Bujingai - I'm actually not 100% if I even have this game yet. I'm still waiting for it to arrive and in fact its doubtful that I even purchased this game from a reliable seller. Too bad cause this game is by Red Entertainment and looks kind of interesting. Hopefully things work out.

Daytona USA: Championship Edition (JPN) - This is the second Daytona USA game that saw release on the Saturn. The main reason I purchased this was because I read somewhere that the JP version offers an option for the original game's handling. Unfortunately maybe it's due to being shipped to Japan or something else but the package has taken quite awhile to arrive. Maybe the Winter Haven Post Office doesn't have their stuff together. I wouldn't be surprised because they've lost one of my packages before.

Oh and how could I possibly forget about the biggest game of this month? That's right Mushime-sama Futari and it's out next week! Okay sure it won't arrive in my home until sometime in December but hey still hyped.

Hopefully my fortunes change in the near future cause I'm absurdly behind on this blog.
