FFXI

I didn’t do much this weekend due to me feeling purely exhausted for the most part. I often don’t realize how exhausted I am until Friday evening hits and my body just wants to do nothing but sleep after pushing myself to walk on a limp right leg for most of the week. Most of what I did had to do with Mission 5.1 for my brother and then getting my brother’s BLM AF hat. Nothing spectacular, but I was happy that my brother had finally logged on after several weeks of being on hiatus…

We did have a great big laugh at watching a jelly monster run around to get us in the Canal. We were laughing our heads off watching it run and the music would play for all of us as it would get close and then stop when it got too far away. It almost seemed like we were in a horror movie, but with a little pudding cup chasing us down instead of some freaky scary… thing.

the World Ends With You

If you don’t own this beautiful DS game, I highly encourage you to get it ASAP! This game is made by S-E and Jupiter and is a little reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts, especially Chain of Memories. If anyone had played this GBA game, you know that it was a kind of annoying card battle game that sometimes made me want to chuck the game at someone. I never did finish it, since I fucked up my cards and (at the time) didn’t want to replay through the damn thing.

The World Ends With You is totally different from the annoying card system, in that you have pins that are highly dependent on things you do with your stylus. This game is NO button mashing game! It IS a very stylus intensive game that caused my hand to cramp up after hours of gaming with that tiny stick. Even the storyline is different than normal FF fair. Its a lot more ‘real’ for me, as I could distinctly remember being on the same vibe as Neku for a very long time. The music is also a great addition, and is unique (to me) in that it changes with each round or even if you refresh the page. It actually makes me want to buy the sound bites on the game; a feature I typically don’t care for in other games but actually appreciate in this one.

And in relation to the title? There IS a clink clink reference in TWEWY somewhere in the game!

Mario Kart Wii

I am extremely impressed with how they handled the WFC setup for this game versus that of SSBB. I actually don’t suck as bad as I do on Mario Kart Wii than I do with SSBB so unless my brother is hogging the Wii or I’m not trying to level up my pins and buy out all the clothes in Shibuya… I’ll be on racing every so often.
