Summer Gaming Goals

This is a good start.

A month ago I did some spending of money at those gaming stores. For a solid $50, the price one would pay for a brand new game (less actually), I got six: the complete Devil May Cry series, Rogue Galaxy, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Metroid Prime (that last one just for collection completeness).

So I have been home from school for a week now, and already had plans for gaming. First off, I needed to play through the MGS series having only played the first one. Now that the collection of the three is complete, I played the original PS1 version for the first time, since my brother took it from a former roommate. I have The Twin Snakes for Gamecube and that was the only taste of Solid Snake that I knew, thus you must feel exactly what I am talking about. I will return to this topic later on.

I still have Final Fantasy X from Erik, and that is one RPG I must play through. This lack of a PS2 all these years has really hurt the gamer in me. It is why I bought all these games that I did. And while still on topic of FF, I hope to have a week of FF posts where I talk about my favorites of the series.

Also with blog topics, another one I want to give is my favorite Cam Clarke voice acting roles. He is awesome.

So back to MGS.

I have this plan. It is called buy a Playstation 3. I think it is a suitable gift to myself this summer. But not a normal PS3; the one that come bundled with MGS4 and an 80 GB hard drive. I will be the first to admit that I don't need 80 GB, ever, but the deal is pretty fair. It is $400 for a 40GB, and the bundle is $500 for the game (60) and the system (400) therefore leaving the other 40 gigs for simply a dollar a piece. Then I will also get Call of Duty 4. It will be sweet.
