Well, it's been real guys, but this is going to be my last post for Blogathon 2008. Unfortunately, I have work fairly early tomorrow and I just couldn't afford to ask to have the day off (I was fortunate enough to be able to blog today, really).

But thank you all a bunch and I wish you tons of luck!! Maybe we'll meet again next year-- I certainly hope so!

There's one game that I really love that I was never able to beat, and that's Golden Sun for the Game Boy Advance. It's a wonderful RPG with great characters, an awesome sense of humor and unique gameplay, but it was too hard for me to get through the puzzles in it. I started replaying it a year or two ago, but even then, I had to rely on walkthroughs too much for me to really consider it much fun anymore. I don't know why... I just couldn't wrap my mind around quite a few of the things that are required of the player.

But the visuals are incredible and I love the sound effects. When you're beating the heck out of your opponent, you can definitely hear it, haha. I would recommend it to anyone looking for more of a challenge in their games. :)

Sometimes, I really don't feel like Dance Dance Revolution is an actual video game. Since it normally requires you to exercise, I feel like it breaks the rules, but in a very good way.

Playing DDR, I lost a lot of weight and found tons of music that I really love, so I'd recommend it to anyone. I've taught kids how to play too because I think it's just that much of a worthwhile game. You can technically play it with your controller, but I found the timing to be strange and that takes the real fun of the game out of it!

The newer games in the series are adding a bunch of extra options, but my favorite is the combo challenge. Basically, in that mode, if you miss a single step, it's game over, but it's fun to see how many you can get in a row. At my best, I think I got around 1,100 steps.

And the really good news is that two of the DDR classics (Extreme and Max 2) have been reprinted at a cheaper price, so you shouldn't have to dig hard to find them at all. :D

Back to Final Fantasy X...

It has the most moving ending of anything that I've ever seen or played in my life. A lot of people end up crying over it (myself included, I admit). It's gorgeously animated and brings everything together. And I feel it's better than watching the end of a really good movie, since you get to bring the ending about yourself.

This kind of begs the question of why they felt they needed to make a sequel with such a wonderful ending, but I can't quite judge X-2 without having played it.


Keep going, everyone! You're doing good!

Anywho, I'm sitting here as Sephiroth is casting his lovely Super Nova move and taking two minutes to do so.

But the next game I'm going to talk about is Final Fantasy X. It's a game that I frankly think should get as much recognition as VII, but it really doesn't. I'm not saying that VII is a bad game, not at all, it's just that X is also very good and I think that the plot in X just makes more sense. (And the battle system is easier, but that might not be seen as positive by everyone.)

The graphics are gorgeous too, especially for a 2001 game. I think it would be pretty hard to make an argument against the game, really.

More when I'm less distracted.

I think I'm going to be lazy with this post in favor of trying to beat Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII. :x Wish me luck?

Also, I haven't mentioned it in a while, but if you'd like to donate, please do so here!
