Yes, it’s bad news. T_T
.

Did you know that late last week, Granado Espada had a patch called The Requiem, version 2.6? It’s supposedly full of goodies such as new RNPCs, Bai Hu and Vicente Rio, but unfortunately, this update is the deciding factor of me stopping GE for the time being.
.

Yes, you heard me right, I’M STOPPING GE!! Even though I just barely started my GE comic… T_T
.

Why, you ask? Well… they changed the font so that ASCII codes (such as é, ¥, © and ï) became boxes instead… LIKE THIS: □!!!
.

The management didn’t offer any solutions (not even a name change, character swap, etc), I didn’t want to play with such a box in the middle of the name (imagine going around with Valkyr□a as your name…), and I didn’t want to start a new character to train all the way… so definitely no more training for me. T_T
.

Okay, so I still check GE everyday despite the fact I’m not training, though all I do is to check my market, collect money and putting more stuff for sale. Then I realise, “Hey, I’m running out of stuff to sell!” And went off to play with Bellem’s Boxes (my main source of income since I hardly train even before this).
.

THEN I FOUND OUT THE GOLDEN WELL ISN’T WORKING ANYMORE!!!!!
.

So that did it. With no way of making money in GE (in case I do get back to GE, you know? I still like the costumes), and since marketing was my “joy” in GE, well, so it’s goodbye GE.
.

And I won’t return until that &%#&@ box is fixed or a solution is in hand!!
.

Yep, that means no more Tales of the Valkyrïa Family comic… for a while. I may feel like going back to GE just for the sake of this comic, but who knows?
.

I’m also busy with university, anyways. *is staying up late to finish report and to study for exams*
.

Sorry, everyone. T_T

~Estrelita Farr, kind of moody today. T_T

First, let me start off by how I found the video. xP

.

  • Early this year, my boyfriend bought a PSP with his group of friends and got Monster Hunter Freedom 2 (and recently he started playing MH Portable 2G, using the unofficial English patch). Since I’m also a gamer, I played his PSP occasionally when I’m bored, though the games he had then wasn’t of that much interest to me (and since I have a PS2, I don’t see the point of getting a PSP so I didn’t o_o)..
  • He asked me a few times to search for some PSP games that I can download to play on his PSP when I’m bored (and when he’s not using it!), so I bounced off to GameFaqs (doesn’t everyone? xP) to search for a list of PSP games. Then I gave up and read reviews on RPGFan instead. =D.
  • And then I saw THREE pretty good reviews on FFT: WotL (which is a port of the original PS1 game), and since I loved the original, obviously I had to get it!.
  • Upon finding out that FFT:WotL has some new cell-graphics cutscenes, then I went off to YouTube to look for some videos (not afraid of spoilers since I already completed the original a few times!)..
  • THEN I FOUND THIS!! =D.

It’s a GMV (game music video) made using cutscenes from FFT:WotL, and I think the lyrics fit very well in the portrayal of Ramza and Delita’s friendship!

.

(And yes, I do like certain Japanese songs, I do like anime songs after all. xP)

.

Here, watch it!

.

Oh, before that:

Wallpaper of the Period

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions (Game)

.

Gotta update the wallpapers and you know why I choose this. xP

.


Presenting… the GMV!!

.

.

**Edit: Hey, I dunno why the author took this out just a few days after I wrote this on my blog!! I’ll keep looking for it, but so far, zilch. T_T

Nice, wasn’t it? Made me so hyped up over FFT:WotL, then I just had to bug my boyfriend to get it ASAP. xP
.

Now I wanna make a music video too!! Though I’ve no artsy idea at all now. T_T
.

Disclaimer: I DID NOT MAKE THIS GOOD GMV!! Credits go to the maker. o_o

.


And now… a very mini FFT review!!

.

Upon starting FFT:WotL a little after reading lots of reviews, I thought I knew what to expect… but no! It blew me off!

.

The Pros:

The conversation translation of this PSP version (compared to the PS1 original) is much better now – everyone speaks in funky Shakespearean English!! Yep, the English is a little difficult to me too, the grammar is confusing for me! And that’s a good thing, because it makes it interesting. xP

.

But hey, the characters come back in 3D cell graphics, with GOOD voice actors! This isn’t one of those games with ridiculous sounding English voice actors; it’s pretty good!

.

The Cons:

Though unfortunately, it’s still just a PS1-to-PSP port, so the actual gameplay and off-cutscene graphics are still the same (I was kinda hoping to see different graphics outside cutscenes… oh well o_o). The icky part is, whenever you use a skill (as in, anything that turns the background dark, INCLUDING using potions!), the animation slows down a lot! The sound effects of those skills don’t match the animation most of the time, and I didn’t think it was that bad. T_T

.

Still, it’s a pretty good game to play, and I look forward to seeing all the cell-graphic cutscenes!

.

And hopefully you feel like playing the game now. xP
