Amazon and Shipping

Amazon and Shipping

I just bought a book from Amazon, and the thing was bad in terms of how it looked. What I got was the
Valkyria Chronicles: Design Archive, it is basically an artbook with commentary on how the game was made and the look of the game itself, I got this because I was really happy to get Valkyria Chronicles as my very first PS3 game, so much that I refused to own any other game before it; including Uncharted, and I wanted the book to find out how the game was made. 

So when it finally came to my home, I was so excited that I took great care in opening it, but when I did as happy as I was to have it, was also equally as disappointed to find that the book damaged. The book was bent; the front cover in the upper right corner was bent as well as a few pages, and scratches along the spine on the back, overall the book the feels like it was very roughly treated in its life. I flipped over the book and it was very nice, the content look awesome and a fun to read, but because the book as a whole was bent up, it was hard to enjoy, for being a new copy you think Amazon treat their books with better care. 

I don’t often buy stuff for myself, so I don’t know if I am being very ungrateful or something, or if I have a right to complain about it. If it wasn’t so bent I could deal with it but… eh. I have never return something online let alone to Amazon, but for some reason I think this is going to be a major pain. I just want a nice new  undamaged book.

A Fun fact about September 11

The Fun fact about September 11. We all know about the September 11 2001 attacks. But September 11 was also the same day as The Battle of Brandywine which was a major win for the British Troops that lead to the capture of Philadelphia in the American Revolution. Something to think about.

I wasn't expecting much for my birthday, in fact I was not expecting any gifts, but I was thinking that I would at least to spend the day with someone to talk to, I guess that's too much to ask. You know that you've hit a low point when the best thing you could say about your birthday is "at least I did not get sick like last year", I didn't even get any cake or sweets.

Sigh... Happy Birthday to me.

On the bright side, at least cleaning today was nice and cool.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (Opening)

It’s been awhile since I did a new post. I have been replaying an old RPG on the PS2, Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, for the longest time I didn't want to replay the game after my first playthrough of the game; because the game’s difficulty goes way up after the first disk. But I have thought that I should start again, and then I remember what I love about the game was that it has a great opening. 

Your main character Fayt Leingod (Yes that’s his real name) is your simple everyday college kid, on vacation with his family and friend just relaxing; before the planet that they are on gets attacked, and Fayt and his friend Sophia Esteed end up running away to the underground safely bunker, but sadly leavening behind the Leingod family in the rush. That is only the first haft an hour of the game, the opening started on a very calm note and the music helps, when you first take control of Fayt when it plays a very beautiful vocal song called, The Little Bird by Misia, and it engages you into a safe calm world, then the mood changes to a very tense and dangerous escape for safety. 

The story moves very quickly and the thing that gets you is the mood once you escape, the bunker is cold and dark, there is a lot the people who are in the bunker; who you may have talk to before, are worried about what is going to happen to them and wonder what is going on above on the surface. 

Overall for an opening to the game, it is very engaging and makes you want to know what is going to happen in the story yourself, with likable characters I was able to fall in love with the game again. I am going move forward with the story and relive the wonderful world Star Ocean again.

Birthday to me

House Cleaning

I was cleaning the house today and I found it really heartwarming, when the weather was slight cooler and I get  very up and up to do cleaning, and my room was a compete mass, I had to put away all the DVDs, games, books, comics, and Yu-Gi-Oh cards that was all over the place. My main desk is still a mess, but can now walk around my room now.

I am going to watch Fight Club before I go to bed tonight


Mood: Pump-Up

New Blog

I think this is the sixth or seventh blog I have started, only this one is meant for me and me alone as I only started blogs for projects that I did, like podcasts. With all the ways to write on the net, I have always like blogspot as it was the most simple way to work and not get confused.

I guess that is it for now, I am mostly going to use this for random stuff like pictures and things like that. I know the sky is nice today so I am going to try and go for a walk right. I love to walk.


Mood: Cheerful
