The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in the yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim, because it was grassy and wanted wear; Through as for the passing there had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way lead on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood , and I-- I took the one less traveled by, and that made all the difference.

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I know I haven'y been keeping up with updates but that's because I was too busy with school and beating Metroid Prime 2 which I did.
Time taken to beat Metroid Prime 2: 1 week
Total play time: 25 hours-ish
So, if I played through, I'd have beaten it in 2 days but of course the sleeping factor killed me.
Next, Merry Christmas again, this Christmas our family went to a buffet with my mom's side of the family. It was fun but I could beat my brother in an eating contest... he ate 9 courses while I only ate 7.
A sad day came upon me 2 days ago... I had to format my hard drive because I got a virus that didn't let me get into Windows. I lost 25 GB of stuff!!! I weep for the loss of my Emulators folder.
But, I rebound by sayiing that for presents I got $225 (curse you Godel for killing my nice even number), a DVD of Sleepy Hollow, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Animal Crossing. Overall, not too bad because I combine Christmas money with my brother so in total we have $455 and he got the Matrix DVD.
Looking to the future, I'll will everyone a Happy New Year.
My computer asploded!!!!

Beating games is hard work.
Well, I beat Skies of Arcadia and Minish Cap. Skies of Arcadia final boss was a three part thing but it was easy because my Pirates' Wrath hit for 8000 damage and Zelos is an ugly bastard. Minish Cap was semi-hard. Vatii also three parts. The first part was confusingly but easy if you know what to do.
I'm really bored now. I need more games to play. Unfortunately I've exhausted my vast supply of games to play. Maybe I should replay the games I didn't bother to play/finish.
Godel you must now kill me by pushing me off a cliff. I feel sick and the day before Justin's party... I must attract unluckyness.
Games currently playing: Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (Jap), Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (5th time), and Bahamut Lagoon (2nd time)
Sleep is important or else you'd lose precious playing time.

Argh!!! My internet went down for the better part of Friday and the morning of Saturday so I went a played 3 games of Civilization and it always had me winning from the space race option. (I should remember never to piss off Stalin during the late game...)
Skies of Arcadia... I don't know who is playing anymore. First, it started out with my brother playing. Then half way through I took over. Now, he's taken over again. And like I told you Sammiechan he's going to take a long time to finish the game. Woo!!! I beat Vise!!! It started with a Prophecy and ended with me reviving Vyse and Gilder respectively after I killed Fina clone (a.k.a. I don't remember the name) then using Blue Rogues but I had to use an Aura of Valour.
Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap: This game is... strange yet fun. It's got your typical dungeons but it's also got the Kinstone combinations. On my first playthrough, I miss 35 combinations... I guess I'll have to improve on my second time through and the ability to turn Minish sized to explore new place adds new depth to the game. Unfortunately, you don't start with the spin attack but you learn it rather quick so I'm happy. You learn other skills from Swiftblade and other people that all end with Blade.
Currently playing: Skies of Arcadia (switching players), Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Must beat last dungeon), and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (Japanese)
I have an instant liking of Lawrence because he's a mix of the silent badass and the mercenary that only cares about money.
