I’m actually quite pleased with the condition of the Castlevania guide. The only damage it has is what you see on the front cover. The first thing I did after examining the damage (and leaving positive feedback on eBay) was check and see everything I missed in the very beginning. I missed so much, I’m seriously thinking of starting over from scratch. I missed a major weapon, I now know how to reach certain areas I couldn’t figure out earlier, and I missed equipment and what I’m sure are important items. No wonder I had such a hard time with the first boss.
Okay, thinking over. I’m going to start over. Then I can hear about man being “a miserable pile of secrets” again.
The second guide was totally a spur of the moment purchase. I received $35 in gift certificates from Best Buy, and since I had errands to do in a Best Buy vicinity, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to stop on in and pick up something that ISN’T on my Amazon wishlist. My birthday is Saturday, so I don’t want to accidentally spoil a possible gift. It hit me that Transformers War for Cybertron released last month, and the trailer had me laughing so hard I knew I would own it eventually. I took the very last copy Best Buy had of both the game and the guide, the latter of which I had to dig for in their shoddy organization for guides. I found it tucked between a NIER guide and a guide for Spirit Tracks, so I assume someone tucked it back there for later. Too bad, sucker! MINE MINE MINE!!
I have no idea when I’m going to get to this game, but I’m just so happy to have it. And the guide. I’ve got the touch…I’ve got the powwwwwwer!
