Scatter Storming. Issue #016 “Let’s Qubit!”

ss016Way back when I wrote for, I “went” to E3. Somehow, miraculously, I was also in Toronto working on a gameshow for the Discovery Channel. It was called Qubit. The cover is a still taken of me when I was standing in for the host while the control room was figuring some shot out. Anyway, that show was sort of the start of my new position in my current job. And since that’s been my life this past month, I decided to make it the cover. How is it working out? Me and my attempts to make the covers for this feature relevant, I mean. Am I selling it? Anyway, let’s talk about me and my gaming brain.

Serendipity -
Mass Effect 2 Week is next week, meaning the game comes out then. Also, I have a week off of work. This pleases me. My new job doesn’t allow me to go in with no sleep so much anymore, and when I got my hands on the first Mass Effect, I played it until 6am on a regular basis. Now I can do that without worry. Excitement.

Final Fantasy V -
Originally I was going to play FFVI, but another issue with my brother (how many times has he screwed me over on Riddlethos?), and it turns out my FFVI case actually holds a disc of The Office. Great show, not helpful for gaming. But if you read this site a lot, you already knew that. I also decided to play FFV for my first JRPG Relapse title because I’d rather have a more concentrated play session with FFVI as I want to give it a fair shot. JRPG Relapse week is to compare the (potential) evolution of the genre, and I think FFV is a better choice for a snapshot.

Aaaand, Darksiders again -
While I’m excited for this week, I definitely miss Darksiders. I should beat it just before Mass Effect 2 comes out.

That’s it! I gotta play FFV before bedtime, which is soon. G’night, mother fuckers!

    - If you want to stick with an even stricter theme, you could only playing FF games with some form of the job system (FFV, FFT, FFX-2), just a random observation I had.

    - I think I’ve just about convinced myself to go get ME2 the day it comes out, even though there’s so much else to play. I’m hopefully finishing up my “completionist” run of Persona 4 this weekend (BTW, Persona 3: Portable announced for the US today. Anybody else excited?… *crickets*), and that leaves me dangerously not-in-the-middle-of-anything when ME2 hits on Tuesday (Plus, I think I heard somewhere that some DLC is free for the first day after launch or something like that?). These Best Buy gift cards aren’t going to spend themselves :D.

    - Unfortunately, I think Darksiders is one of those games I’m going to have to wait to play. I’ve been hearing a ton of good things about it, and I really hope it does well, but ME2 is much higher on my priority list right now. Maybe between ME2 and FFXIII…

    @Ethos: Dude, you know I have FFVI. Also, in Darksiders news, I didn’t pick up the heart piece (I mean, lifestone shard) until I’d finished the dungeon portion of Twilight Cathedral, because I thought that the second floor of the north wing would unlock the door to the tower (trying hard to not spoil anything). Frikkin’ doing the dungeon with 1 lifestone was pain. WTF last puzzle putting you through 3 waves of enemies. WTF. On the other hand, getting really good at that R1 dash business now.

    @DG: March will be the same business, FFXIII and God of War III.

    @DG: Which is to say, ow, my wallet. Ow, my life.

  4. Ethos says:

    Wait…what language is it in?

  5. Andogo says:

    English. I have Anthology, Chronicles, and Origins. But I won’t be able to get it to you before the end of the week. Unless you want to come up to North York…

    They’re the PSX versions. If you want the SNES version… there’s A&C games, near Bloor/Spadina.
