I'm super glad GOG.com exists, seriously. I've heard of a lot of these games, but never played them as a child because our family was more console-oriented. (I was probably too young to play anything other than Lemmings or Dr. Brain games anyway.) I like having the chance to play these games and check out what people are talking about. I just nabbed the Wing Commander series to give it a shot. Also Mark Hamill is in the games too, and I wanna see that.

I'm thinking about trying to get more recent games on GOG too. I don't know if anyone else has the same problem, but Steam can really clog up my computer sometimes. I don't have a gaming optimized laptop, so just opening Steam can be a trial for me. Games that are DRM free are such a turn on.

I really should be reformatting my hard drive, but I'm hesitant. My laptop originally came with Windows Vista installed, but I received a free upgrade to Windows 7 and used that. I don't know where I put the upgrade disk anymore, though. I'm afraid of reformatting and ending up with Vista again. That would really, really suck.

I'll have to go hunting for it again sometime.

The internship is going well, though I'm super tired by the end of the day. I'm supposed to do 225 hours this semester and keep a bi-weekly journal for my professor to review. Sounds fine to me. As long as I don't have to do a final or anything, I'll be happy.

Now if only my other classes could be like this. /sob

In gaming news, I GOT THE ICO/SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS COLLECTION! It's not really a collection. Just two games on one disk.

So, so, so happy. These games were so awesome when they were first released, and I can't wait to try them in HD.

...hopefully I can actually finish them.

Blog surfing again -- it's possible that I'm just horrifically late in learning about this, but there's a Black Rock Shooter game in the works? What's that supposed to be about? I don't remember the OVA being really deep or anything, so. :\a

EL SHADDAI POSTCARDS this is awesome and so hilarious. I love this goddamn meme so much it's just laksjdflaskdjf. Also LOL I want that Enoch card. SO BEAUTIFUL. そんなポーズで大丈夫か?

EDIT: Caved in and downloaded them. I am such a sad little person.

The whole KAT-TUN plagiarism thing made it to the forums, of course. I think my favorite comment there is KAT-TUN 「歌ってみた」. That whole ordeal is rather unfortunate, so I've been trying not to get into it.

Which games to remake? Personally, I don't really see a point in remaking FF8 or FF9 -- not because I dislike the entire second half of FF8 or anything, but it's just kind of redundant. I imagine you could probably add voices, but otherwise the characters were in proportion when wandering around towns and the FMVs are still good looking imo. Not much to do with it.

FF7... you know, despite my apprehension, I'd probably buy it if they remade it. So I probably shouldn't say too much.

That survey is kinda suspect, anyway. EHRGEIZ ARE YOU SERIOUS isn't that called Dissidia? Did anyone buy it for any other reason other than lol FF7 characters? Was it popular in Japan? Do people want to see Sephiroth's hair flowing magically in the wind as he facedives into the sand in order to grab the flag? Because if there's one thing Dissidia is lacking, it'd be beachtime fun. DEAD OR ALIVE HAS IT, SO CAN DISSIDIA. Where's my all Final Fantasy cast volleyball minigame?! >T

Personally, I think it'd be really rockin' to see a Suikoden (I or II) remake on the PS3 with awesome 2D graphics. Maybe like Odin Sphere or something. I'd really love more games like that.
