All About W8I8Z
My life as a Gamer....
I have a friend who lives in Japan and asked them to order this for me since I live in the USA. They placed an order and it finally arrived today!
The box is a simple white color but the contents are beautiful. Each game has artwork on the CD that I have never seen before.
The only negative is that the games were re-released on their original formats so unless you have a backwards compatible PS3 or your original PS1 and PS2 up in working order, you can't play most of the games. However, this doesn't matter to me because I just wanted this set for its Collector Value and rarity. Too bad other 25th Anniversary games don't do something like this. I would love to see a Box set of Dragon Warrior/Quest, Metroid, Castlevania and Legend of Zelda.
Yes, you read that correctly.
I have played the first two games in the Ar Tonelico series on the PS2 and loved them. They were a different type of RPG with a mix of random encounters, physical attacking and song magic. Add in some sexual innuendos, nieve heros and half dressed heroines and it made a great story and great game. If you learned the battle system, there was practically no battle you could lose. Plus, there were options to dive into the girls Cosmospheres to create stronger magic and gain their love. I know it sounds corny but it was fun and different from any other game I ever played. All the elements were there for a decent RPG if you could get past the girly voices.
Now comes the third and final game in the series and they changed the battle system. Not that I'm complaining, different is sometimes better. But, this wasn't what I was expecting. The girls still sing, you still go into their Cosmosphere to get stronger magic, but you ask them to strip off more clothing because, the more skin they show, the more powerful the magic. When they mention this in the game I almost fell of my seat laughing. Now I am about 20 hours into the game and yes, I have the girls strip down to barely any clothes in order to defeat most enemies. The story is still sound and the game is very enjoyable.
I just would love to know who actually pitched this idea to management and who actually would approve this? I want to shake their hand and thank them for coming up with something new and original and risky! Good job! Nice to see some games taking an adult turn for once. The animated video of the stripping holds nothing back as the girls who are bigger than the other will bounce and show it off.
Can't wait to see how it ends!
Well I waited about 6 months after my original FAT Metal Gear Solid Edition 80GB PS3 got the yellow light of death before purchasing a new system. When it originally happened, I seriously almost cried. Since I don't play online I didn't have any way of saving any of my memory or data and even still have an old PS2 game stuck inside. About 6 years worth of gaming saves and trophies just GONE. Yes, I know it can be repaired and memory saved but I decided that I don't really play the games for the trophies, instead I play for the thrill of finishing the game itself so I really didn't lose much. any of my favorite games that I have I can just replay them and experience them all over again instead of loading an old save. Still... was very depressed for a long time. Thank God I had an Xbox360 and Wii to hold me over.
Now I got the Uncharted 3 320GB PS3 edition and even signed up to the Playstation network, even though I never play with anyone online. So after running out of Xbox and Wii games to play I started going through my unopened PS3 games. Started with FFXII-2 and loved it. I know most people had bad reviews but the game was just as good as original and graphically stunning. Only upsetting part was that it doesn't end... but continues to FFXIII-3? Followed that up with Resistance 3, Killzone 3, Hunted the Demon Forge and Dragon Age II. Now I'm playing Ar Tonelico Qoga and have a few more games ready to go. (Batman Arkam City, Uncharted 3, Hyperdemention Neptuna 1 and 2 and all 3 games in the Atelier series + more!)
Hopefully I don't burn this system out anytime soon... Bring on the Wii-U!
