Gamestop and Amazon finally agreed on a release date for Chrono Trigger and it's....November! The 24th, but I'm guessing that's the ship date and the release is the 25th (which I won't even get into that whole mess of retardation system...) Yes!! Wee, I'll have a nice long weekend to play it over and over again!! Squee! And it sounds like the PSX anime cut scenes will be included, as well as a new dungeon! One of the few games I'll drop an immediate $40 for, even though it doesn't look like there will be preorder bonuses. :(

And upon further reading of Rhapsody, they freaking took out the only actual gameplay element to it, so that one's off the must-buy list. -_- The original one was the only strategic-type rpg I would play and now they've just made it turned-based and apparently insanely easy TB at that. I actually liked maneuvering the puppets around so I have no effing idea what they were thinking with that. And the songs will only be Japanese with english subs which I haven't decided how I feel about that yet.

And thanks to the article [ profile] xarx  provided about Castlevania: Eccentricity of Vampires or whatever the hell the newest one is called, I'm actually looking forward to that now, but again no PO bonuses in sight so I'll probably wait on that one too. They went back to the gothic look of the characters as opposed to that horribly generic cutesy anime look they'd been going with and the added exploration and town-visiting sounds like it could be good additions. Dunno about that glyph system since I still haven't played DoS, but the sword combos sounds fun to play with.

Robert and I are both apprehensive about looking forward to Sonic Chronicles, the DS RPG game due out this month. While it was the potential to be good, with recent Sega releases, my money is on it being very very bad. Especially since the only sense of it I get from the screenshots is bland backgrounds and not actually doing anything. :/  And of course, it's the only one of the upcoming games with a preorder bonus. *insert eye roll*

Silent Hill 5 also comes out at the end of this month. Since [ profile] xarx has played all the other SHs for me at this point, I hate to break tradition, so I'm going to try to find a way up there the first weekend of Oct so I can be there for the inital playthrough. I love playing the helper and providing atmosphere by emitting a high-pitched keening throughout the gameplay. :D Unfortunately that coincides with fairtime and Barbara's annual leave, so I'm not sure on the logistics yet.

And speaking of the fair, choosing pictures to enter has been an even bigger pain in the ass than choosing doll contest photos. And since Tatton's been down with illness and my mom's not too keen on that stuff, it's been blargh. I'm getting them printed tonight and still have 4 or 5 categories that I have no idea what to enter.

Also, none of my recent 10 million purchases has actually sent a ship notice yet, which is highly aggravating me. Well, Principessa just did, but she's like the only thing I won't play with. Mom already got a ship notice for Viktor Dreary which she bought long after all my stuff. Grrr, I want stuff in hand before the economy melts and I won't be able to have luxuries anymore!!
