That’s right beetches, after seven long years of scoffing at and avoiding Wind Waker I mother-effin-finished it last weekend. …What? You didn’t even know I was playing Wind Waker? Now I’m scoffing at and avoiding you, reader. You must not follow my game log.
Do you know what I do to people that don’t follow my log? I send the Nue from Breath of Fire III after your ass.
So yeah, I finished Wind Waker and stuffed it away in a random box somewhere. Now I’m ready for my next adventure. I’m ready for something fresh and brand-spankin-new. Something I’ve NEVER played before. Something that will further my…uh seemingly endless gamer-horizon.
…or am I?
Consider this: I have an extensive backlog of untouched games that haunt me in my sleep. They are pissed off that I don’t play them. So wouldn’t it make sense that I would try to plow through those games before I replay the same ‘ol titles for the umpteenth time? I would get NOWHERE in my backlog.
Well you know how I work. I don’t like to make sense in things. Currently, there are two games I’m yearning for right now (and have been since mid Wind Waker): Dragon Age: Origins and Breath of Fire III. And yes, I’ve completed these games more times than I can count. So why do I want to play them A-G-A-I-N?
It’s still a mystery to me as to why, but Breath of Fire III is the only game I find myself playing at least once a year. It’s especially weird because Breath of Fire III isn’t even my favorite game! It’s up there, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t ever get “cravings” to play Final Fantasy IX or Ocarina of Time. Perhaps it’s the characters. I am a sucker for a group of dynamic characters and get great deal of pleasure out of watching them develop and grow throughout the progression of a story. Or perhaps I simply have a weakness for blue haired dragon’s named Ryu…
Now, wanting to play Dragon Age again is a no brainer. Dragon Age II releases in LESS THAN THREE FUCKING WEEKS and although I know the story like the back of my hand I want a refresher course. I want to vividly remember the character’s names and courses of action I took. I WANT TO REMEMBER HOW THE SUN REFLECTS OFF OF ALISTAIR’S FACE.
And here’s a terrible confession: I haven’t played all of the DLC yet.
…Okay. My decision is made. I will go to Best Buy tonight and purchase Dragon Age: Ultimate Edition. I will play through it and all of its DLC before March 8th.
Balls. Which platform do I get it for? I loved it on PC so much more than 360, but my PC isn’t top notch.
One dilemma leads to another, I tell ya ;)
