Friday - August 18, 2000
I'm sitting here at the office doing what i usually do every Friday - too burned out to do anything useful, recapping what has happened this week, and trying hard not to freak about what i need to do next week. Being 'Penny-Arcaded', as largo so aptly put it, certainly made us jump this week, but perhaps it was the kick start that was needed to really get off the ground. Of course, this is just what i need right now - more deadlines. :) Of course, things can always be worse.
ok, enough griping. I do that a lot.
It looks like the 3rd installment of one of my favorite dating/love sim games 'True Love Story 3' will be commin out sometime in early 2001. In what seems to me a particularly evil bent, the game doesn't just span a single month of high school, but an entire year of junior high. Gyah. Now I have a whole year to fuck up relationships with the 12 or so girls who populate the game. joy. ^^;; And to do this, the next game will be in DVD format and will require me to purchase a PS2. Drat. Finally, a reason to buy that stupid thing (sigh)
TLS is such a great game. Conversations are such that you dynamically select topics and things to talk about - choose some thing wrong and it's 'see ya looser!' and she finds an excuse to walk home a different way. ^_^. Now, the character designs for True Love Stories might not be the cutest around - in fact, they are sort of an acquired taste (yea, some people say they suck), but they grow on you. Right now, I am balking at the screen shot over on Magic Box...
I have two disks sitting here from Hibikino Watcher that I need to install. Wai! finally, i can have my favorite gal Miyuki call out 'piro-kun' in her own voice via the Emotional Voice System... now i just need some time to play Tokimeki Memorial 2 again...
