Whew… That was a decent weekend. Still haven’t done much in the way of writing or being able to make progress with finding out how best for me to become a freelance writer and all, but… After getting a severe migraine on Monday and not being able to shake off the migraine until sometimes Tuesday afternoon and then the headache going by Wednesday evening… *sighs* I just kinda needed a complete escape. And I decided to try out the Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (on the PSP) as a way to leave everything behind… And, of course, knowing me, I kinda got addicted for a while… *hee*
I think I was really disappointed when the second and the third in the Trails in the Sky series didn’t get released in the UK. Well, physical release, anyway. *shakes head* The second game in the series did get a download-only release for the PSP a couple or so years back, but my PSP won’t connect to the router I’ve got now. Guess the router (which I did get back in June…) is just too new. But thankfully, I was able to get the game to download and work on the Vita, so that’s something. I’ve only gave the second one a quick run to check that it works and all…
The third one, though… *shakes head* I didn’t see it in the Playstation Store, and from looking online, I don’t think it ever got released for Europe. In fact, it seems like some sources are saying it never got released outside of Japan? *sighs* Being a JRPG fan is not an easy thing sometimes, is it? I should double-check, though. And maybe find out if it’s possible to buy and play US physical versions on the PSP… Hmm.
Anyway… At least the rumours that I’ve seen about the third game in Trails of Cold Steel is a bit more positive – although it’ll be for the PS4 rather than the PS3. It might take a bit longer, but the chances of it being released for Europe is potentially likely. Whether that’ll be 2018 or 2019, I dunno. All the languages we have for Europe, you know…! And from what I’ve seen, the number of words there’s to translate for the third game is like… three or four full-sizes novels. So… Quite a challenge, really.
But yeah… Like I say, being a JRPG fan is a challenge sometimes. You’re really hoping that some company will pick up the rights to bring out the whole series, especially when it comes to Europe. According to my brothers, it’s a lot better than it was, back in the pre-Playstation days, but… Even so, I’m still always anxious until they get released here! And preferibly on physical media as well!
Something I’ve noticed before and remembered again, though… I do appears to get a lot of crushes of video games characters and all. *hee* I think the reason is probably because I’m single and have been for a fair while, and while I know I’m not ready to have a girlfriend, I still want one. *grins* So I guess video games characters are a way to just let my imagination runs riot!
So which character did I develop a crush on this time? Scherazard Harvey, of course! Even though I know there’s no chance I’d be able to cope with her, especially given the way she’d umm… *coughs* get when she’s drunk. (No, you don’t actually see her get drunk, but from what Estelle and Joshua have said… Yeah. *grins*)
Oh well. It’s not every video game characters, just that I do tend to get crushes on a few! There does appears to be a certain type. Basically, it appears to be those that are pretty much the opposite of me. While I can be a bit outspoken online, I’m actually quiet and shy when it comes to dealing with other people face-to-face. Whereas those that I tends to get crushes on are those that would have no problem in getting in other people’s faces. Scherazard, Medusa, all those. Guess it’s also a little bit of “wish I could do that” as well.
But, hey, we’re all different. I like to think I’m decent when it comes to the written word, right? *grins*
Okay… Gonna stop here for now. Hopefully, I’ll be able to write again in the next couple of days! Until next time, see you soon!
