3 for the price of 1 [13 Apr 2007|02:10am]
[ mood | nerdy ]

So as I have been lazy and haven't posted i'm going to do a quick run down of FF 1-3 in this post letting everyone know how it rolls.

FF 1 the granddaddy of it all. A great game that focuses on the basics of gameplay. No real story but that's how it goes with older games. With a selection of different characters who each play a different way. Short and sweet the games gets it done in most every way. I give it a 4 out of 5 as it is a great game just lacks a bit in the story, but oh well.

FF 2, now here is a game that was understandably not orginaly released to the U.S. With old graphics, a rather poor story and the abuse of the FF gameplay. Really all in all it would be a decent game if it had kept the level up system but they decieded to take all that away and give a junky random stat level up system where you might(emphisis on might) gain a point in a stat that you used during battle. I would have to give it a 2 out of 5, worth playing if you want to say you beat it but all in all it's not worth much as a game regardless of how bored you are.

FF 3 now here is a good game that should have been released orginaly but they decide not too. Oh well this game works well for what it does, going back to the standard level up and having the old classic gameplay and style. The story is still kind of lacking but the gameplay surely makes up for it, with the ability to change your class and make the perfect team. Sadly the way the system works you have to just about spend the whole game using a single class to get anything out of it. Even with this flaw however the game is solid and completely makes up for problems. I give it a 4 out of 5, still not the best game and it gets rather boring near the end when it's just the same thing over and over again.

Well there you go, now everyone is caught up, I will be keeping in touch more often with the random things I do and look foreward to the next post that will be for FF 4 one of the best.

Ok i'm sorry for those who are really interested in the boring things that I do in my spare time (which there isn't much of either). But oh well i'm back now and i'm going to be doing so with a bang or atleast a few posts that will let everyone know what it is that i've been up too. With work and other things i've just been to busy to do anything and my nights off i've been too tired to really mess with it. So that's the bad news, the good is that here soon within the next month I shall be moving out and getting a place of my own. I'm a bit scared about it but I think all in all it will be good for me and it will work out in the end. With that everything is going pretty good. I still have a wonderful girlfriend, the project is going wonderfully and I have beaten everyone for each month so far. Well that is about all that there is for this, look foreward to more random things from me in the future.

I am kingbah hear me roar....

DOOM!!!!! [24 Jan 2007|05:12am]
[ mood | mischievous ]

Yay!! I now have Doom (the moive). It makes me so happy to have such a wonderfuly crapy movie. Aw but even though it sucks it is still true to the games. Also while on the topic of Doom I just beat Doom 3 eariler aww what a time that was. P.S just for everyone's knowledge, Satan is apparently about 20 to 30 feet tall and has a rocket launcher for an arm.

And speaking of wonderfuly bad things I get to enjoy a lot of early mourning cartoons. However for every great show there seems to be about 2 bad ones. Like the other day I was watching tv and on came a an 80's show based on Dungeons and Dragons. Yes yes they made a show based on it and it was horrible. Plus i've seen that they are making yet another Power Rangers tv show, another one! Why please tell me why? Have they not hurt the brains of the future generations enough? Oh well just please let it go away in disgrace like everyother one after the first.

Ok so that is my rant for the week, everyone keep on keeping on and try not to get into too much trouble.

I am KingBah
And man do I love shotguns. YAY DOOM!!!

Vacation time!!! [10 Jan 2007|05:59am]
So i've been laid off of work. This would normal suck if it wasn't for the fact that I have only been laid off for a week. Yep strange huh? So yeah i'm thinking of this time off as a sort of vacation. So wooh hooo!! No work for a week. With this I'm going to go visit my girlfriend for this time.

Also I have just become a loser, becuase as of tonight I have officaly watched Snakes on A Plane. Yep that's right I watched it. Hate me all you want but I have to say it was actually pretty good. The idea is orginal and it made a rather interesting movie. Plus Samuel L. Jackson was in it and he pretty much made the movie what it was. So for all you ney sayers all I have to say is... BAH!!

And last but not least I have just finished watching Wolf's Rain. It is a good series that starts off slow but gets really good in the end. Plus I have come to a conclusion after watching this show and that conclusion is...

That wolves are ninjas.

It Has Begun [06 Jan 2007|12:41am]
[ mood | weird ]

So it has been decided as to what team I shall be using in Final Fantasy. *drum roll* And the winners are "Thief", "Fighter", "Red Mage", and "Black Mage". These four came out with the highest number of votes. The cool thing about this is that I also get to pay tribute to the team from 8-bit. ....BAH!!

Ok before I get going I have one more thing to talk about. As i progress I will be putting up reviews of the games that I play and i'm going to use a special rating system that I will using for these reviews. This goes from 1 to 5 and here are the rating levels.

1= Edward. Edward is a character from FF 4 who is a bard and the only thing he can do is hide (literaly). So that is what this game should do, hide and never come out.

2=Cait Sith. A Scottish sounding stuffed cat. That's about it. not very usefull but not as bad as Edward. Games with this rating are hard to get through and should only be played by those who are really dedicated.

3= Mog. Mog is the moogle mascot of the FF series. He is cute and cuddly and good but not the best. Basically he is just well balanced which is what this game is pretty average.

4= Gilgamesh. Ok I know he is just a bad guy and only appears in a few games but every time he shows up he does really awesome attacks and he is rather hilarious. So any game that gets this rating is good but not perfect as just like him it falls just short of being truely awesome

5= Sephiroth. No really need to explain this one is there? Anyways he is the best so anything that gets this rating is also the best.

So that's it for now I will keep updating as I have nothing better to do then annoy people with the random things i do and think about. Oh well that's my life.

New Year, New Plan, Same Great Life [01 Jan 2007|12:32am]
[ mood | pleased ]

Alright so it's the new year and like I said I have an interesting project that should keep me busy most of this year. So it's 2007 and I don't know how many know this other then a geek like me and those I have told but 20 years ago in 1987 they made what is in my opinion the greatest game series in the world "Final Fantasy". So in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this great game series I am going to take the year playing the various games of the series. Each month will go with a different game (basically each number will go with the same numbered month). The only exception to this is that in November I will be replacing 11 with Tatics as I don't have 11 and I don't want to take the time to go with it. So as I said starting soon I will start this taking 1 month to beat each game. I will keep everyone up to date of my progress on this subject.

Alright so the first game is FF 1 and I was hoping for a bit of help on choosing my team. I would like it if some people would comment back on a team of four from the list of characters that are in the game. There is Monk, Fighter, Theif, Red Mage, Black Mage, and White Mage. So anyone wanting to suggest a team, comment back however no duplicate characters. Alright then I'll leave it at that and I will let everyone know what team I pick next post. Well Happy New Year everyone, have fun.... BAH!!

"I am KingBah hear me Roar........ BAH!!!"

Lost in the classics [23 Dec 2006|06:52am]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

So I'm playing FF 12 and I get to the part where I have to fight Gilgamesh. As the fight is going on I start to notice all the things that were brought back from the older games when you fought him. Like they had his orginal boss music remixed and they even had a comment during the fight about his encounter with Excupliar in FF 5. Man i'm such a geek.... BaH

As if this wasn't bad enough I went out and bought the new Castlevania for the DS. It's a great game and it brings back a lot of good memories about the olden days back when games were about killing time and having something so you could ignore your parents. Not all about graphics and so easy that a two year old could beat it. However this game does not disappoint and it does actually make me want to scream about the fish (inside joke) but all in all it makes me happy at the end of the day and the game is still a bit creepy.(giant behemoth with weird blood tentcales comeing out of it *shudder* just creepy) Well that is my rant for today.

Everyone have a good Christmas and try to find that one good game you can curl up with at the end of the night.

*Brought to you by Castlevania. Showing that men with whips can kick some serious vampire ass since 1987*

So this is the first time I get to do this Live Journally thing right here so don't blame me if you think that it sucks. Just live with it. Bah!!!

In case you didn't notice the title is "Ramblings of a Gamer" so that means this will mostly be the things that I think about when I am a work for long periods of time and the thoughts usualy lead to things about gaming. Also I will be keeping everyone up to date about the progress of my latest project to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Final Fantasy Series. There will be more about this development as the year turns and you will just have to wait to find out.

Ok so about me, what is there to say? I'm a 21 year old gamer who has a job that sucks like most people's, the only thing that makes my life better then everyone elses is that I have the greatest girl in the world. Who made my journal by the way.(she did make me say that. *grumble*) Well as my closing statement on this fine how do you do and what not. The name is Eric E Colmean put that together and you get EEC, so have fun figureing that one out.

Well that is all there is for now so if you find this interesting stay tuned for the random stuff that will continue to happen here.

and on a parting note that everyone should look for, this is my saying:

"I am KingBah, hear me roar!!.... Bah!"
