Hatsune Miku

Just realised it's been awhile since my last blog entry ... over the past month or so I'd finished Dynasty Warriors - Next (only on Easy mode but have unlocked enough of the game to lose interest) and played a bit more Dissidia Duodecim 012

I reckon DD012 is the best Final Fantasy title I'd ever played (on hindsight, Crisis Core - the prequel to FFVII - wasn't bad either) ... but that's the thing, both DD012 and CC aren't "proper" Final Fantasy games and for hardcore FF fans, the only titles that really count are the FF I-XIII (and Type-0). Yet, these real FF   games, for me, are a bit old. So, even though they are "classics", I find them a bit boring to play; i.e. bit like Pokemon and I've been through with Pokemon games for decades! To my surprise, last week I found FFIII on my iPad --  I must have bought that when it was released (God knows why) and after playing it for a couple of hours I was already bored. I'm sure the game was great at the time, when it was first released. But yes, now with better graphics and all, there are just better games out there.

All that made it the more sad that I think DD012 is totally bug-ridden. Ever since I bought the game a couple of years ago (on the cartridge for the old PSP), I've been having problems with it crashing. The PSN-downloaded version for my PSVita, as I found out last week, is also bugged and has already crashed a couple of times. I don't think I can pause mid-game. The problem is that game actually crashes my machine so I had to delete it completely from my console.

Now, I am slightly tempted to download FFIV - the Complete Collection, partly because, apparently, it has a really great story and, partly, it's dead cheap now. But here lies the dilemma, should I get it even though I know the gameplay isn't great (i.e. similar to FFIII)? 

Square Enix, which produces the FF series, is being unbearably slow with its remake of FFX for PSVita (not until 2015!) while we aren't even sure it will localise Type-0 (which looks amazing) ... both games I wanna get my hands on! 

So, in the meantime, I've just started playing the rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f, which came with the limited edition bundle I bought earlier (I just wanted the console, not the game). Well, Project Diva is, err, totally not my kinda game but I have nothing else to while my time away (Assassin Creed - Liberation is not out until end of this month) so I gave it a go this morning ... and after several hours of working out how the game works, am getting quite good at it and have already unlocked all the main characters. The songs are also quite addictive but this is too Kawaii (even) for me...

(Hours later ...)

Okay, am downloading FFIV (cos it's cheap) ... I don't think I'm really that into unlock costumes for Hatsune Miku and dressing her up ... (Japanese blokes are quite into that ... apparently ...)
