It's a feast for the senses.
There was no school today. Which in turn means no school all week. Ah well, yet more time for me to get ready for the skeletal retake.
Watched a made-via-camcorder-in-Japan version of Kill Bill this morning. Sure the english subtitles were cockeyed, it was laden with Japanese subtitles, the quality was lacking and you could hear people in the audience laughing (especially during O-Ren Ishii's commencement speech), but the movie was just as great as when I saw it in the theater. I found myself getting in some much needed boken practice after watching it, just like last time.
Then, to continue being lazy, I fired up and finished Silent Hill, getting the Good+ ending (Cybil lives! Yay!). I remember hating that game so much after finishing it originally, as the storyline was incredibly vague. Silent Hill 3 gives me the knowledge to make sense out of the first now. After finishing the game, I decided to look over some FAQs for plot analysis, when something caught my eye. Those crazy Japanese are fueling my masochism once more. Konami announced plans for Silent Hill 4: The Room. I'm getting chills just thinking about it. Apparently, this one takes place mainly in one man's apartment, from which he can't get out of, but rather gets into random spots in Otherworld from strange portals that appear in his appartment... And while that almost sounds kinda farfetched, it IS Silent Hill we're talking about, so it's guaranteed to scare the shit out of me all hours of the night.
This year seems to be a good year for gaming and upcoming sequels/prequels. Halo 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, new GTA, and (hopefully) Starcraft: Ghost along with the aforementioned Silent Hill 4. Final Fantasy XII looks pretty promising as well, just as long as it doesn't go the way of Finalquest...uh, Everfantasy...um, 11...Ultima Online...I dunno, MMORPGs are all the same.
And...yeah, It's been a gamer day since I'm too broke to go anywhere. Tomorrow should prove a little more interesting though. And on that note, I'm gonna attempt sleep, although I'll probably end up playing something I haven't finished yet. So much FFX crap to find...
