So Many Awesome Acronyms
I like Japan. I like Sony products. I like the Playstation 2. I like "Need For Speed" (NFS). I like losing my BMW M3 in a race. I like starting at the bottom with $30,000 cash. I like buying a new, cheap car to race with. I like working my way up the Black List to win back my M3.
I should be able to find some sweet PS2 games at awesome prices with the Playstation 3 making its debut in mid November.
Race car games are the neatest. I like the kind where I can race a car and win money. Then use that money to buy parts and modify my race car. I've played a few of the Gran Turismo and other similar games on my friend ST3's PS2. I enjoy them. They make me go 'Wheeee!'
I'm really excited to see which Castlevania games are available for the PS2. I've been a Castlevania freak since the first one came out for the NES. Simon's Quest followed and to this day I still think it's the best. The music, unlike the horrible rap in so many modern games, is original and phenomenal - especially when entering the castle ruins to burn Dracula's body parts.
Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse featured ground-breaking visuals with an extra graphic chip built right into the game. No wonder it cost me a whopping $85 back in 1990. Didn't matter to me though. If anybody knows how to make a jaw-dropping game, it is Konami.
I'm such a Castlevania nerd that I had the C-III castle layout map pinned up in my closet years after the SNES and even the PS1 came out. My desktop theme at work even features a sombre Belmont holding his trusty whip and looking upward. Is he looking up to the heavens for good luck? Perhaps. I imagine he's staring up at Dracula's tower from a village far below.
Me thinks some shopping is in order tonight. The Halloween decorating will have to wait. I have some SAW-ing (Skeleton Ass-Whipping) to do.
