Like I said before, Okami got the boot for Twilight Princess this past week. While playing it, tons of apprehension washed over me. I suddenly remembered all the issues I had trouble with the last time, and started to wonder if I could do better this time, and oh God, I forgot about the giant spiders. I have a baby at home now, so I can’t scream like a little girl when one drops on me, like I did last time I played. And no, it didn’t happen just the first time; it happened EVERY time.
I’m actually considering foregoing the game yet again to play something else, primarily because I’m not sure I can handle another Zelda game this year. Zelda games are a lot of fun, but man they can be a pain in the arse with their zany dungeon puzzles and boss tactics. But I will give it another week before I put it aside yet again, hopefully to be finished in 2010.
For those wondering about Spirit Tracks coming out in 2010, I really doubt I will pick it up. It looks just like Phantom Hourglass with a train in so many ways, and unless reviews and trailers can convince me it is most decidedly not so, I’d rather just play Phantom Hourglass again.
In Final Fantasy news, I finally reached a part of the Final Fantasy X story that I didn’t get to last time, so many years ago. I see why a certain friend of mine loved it so much, and I’m eating it up for the same reasons. Could this be part of the reason why I’m dragging my feet with Twilight Princess? Possibly just a little, but not the complete reason.
Still working on the Last Remnant guide review, and I hope to finish and post it before I leave for Atlanta (for a geek fest) on Friday. I’m still going to review Okami as well. I have plenty to discuss about this guide even without playing the game.
