Let’s play Zumba!

In a related post to my previous one, I’ve recently seen this footage of a video game for the XBox Kinect called “Zumba Fitness World Party”.

And yes, I know the game has been around for a while, but hey, I was too busy catching up to my Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Red Dead Redemption marathon. (John Marston is my idol right now, I swear).

I’ve been trying to get a hold of a second-hand copy of this, since XBox 360 games trading is still pretty much thriving in our local scene, but nobody seems to want to let go of their c opy! Which is really surprising, since I thought that Kinect games are not really a “strong” seller in the circuit. So, I’d probably have to buy it for brand new.

Combine this with my Dance Central games, which have fitness monitors, maybe I could lose weight with this. I’ve heard some pretty good weight loss reviews from this game, and from my experience with the DC games, I get the feeling I’m going to get really worked up in this. I mean, just look at the girl in the video! I mean if I could dance like that, I’d be making videos of it too.

Which possibly also means that I’m going to have to get the music from this game, put it on my phone, and buy MF’s best earbuds so I can play them on my commute to work. I want to be able to practice it during my down time.

Nobody Expects The (Dragon Age) Inquisition!

Heyyyy! I’m back! Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while. I’ve been pretty busy… you know… gaming.

Mainly because I finally have (ta-ta-tadaaaa) a Xbox 360!! Yay for me!

I know, I know… the Xbox has been around for AGES, and I was only able to get it now, mainly because it was a present by my sister for my 30th birthday. Sure, the Xbox came out about the same time as the PS2, but hey, you got to prioritize right? We got the PS2 mainly because of Final Fantasy X and Okami (which is STILL and FOREVER WILL BE THE BEST GAME EVER!). If I had the Xbox at an earlier time, it probably would’ve drowned during the 2009 Typhoon Ketsana flooding. Still, I’m pretty happy that I have one now, since I can catch up with my console gaming again.

And one of the first games I bought was Dragon Age: Origins. What can I say? I love Alistair (and Steve Valentine for that matter). There’s always a chance that a gamer to fall in love with a character, specially if that character is as funny and as faithful as a lover like Alistair. <3

Anyway, so I heard that Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming up soon (November 18th, 2014 if I remember correctly)… and it’s going to be available for the Xbox 360 (AWWW YEAAAAAHHH!!!!). Although I’ve heard that the graphics won’t be as pretty as when you would play it on an Xbox One, I’m still pretty happy that there would be a continuation to the game’s story (although according to the game’s creators, the previous protagonists from Dragon Age: Origins and 2 would make some sort of “appearance”). And as much as I want to play it as soon as it comes out, I still want to finish Dragon Age 2 first before I do.

What can I say? I fell in love with Anders. XD

The game’s trailer looks AMAZING. And the music of it is certainly not helping in curbing my enthusiam for the game. Just listening and watching the trailer and other videos about the game makes me want to hit that “Mail your order today!” for the game. But… like I said, I want to be able to finish the games and understand everything what’s been going on in the story before I order the next one on November.

But I AM going to get it though. I’m already playing through the story as quickly as I could… although Alistair’s adorable-ness is making it difficult for me.

DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION ON NOVEMBER, PEOPLE!!!! I don’t know about you, but I’m already saving up for it.

Hitman: Absolution?

So… I know I posted that I’m going to buy this game for the Xbox…

Problem is, I think I’m going to fail at playing it. ~_~

I’ve never been good at shooting games (even more on horror games… damn you Fatal Frame ~_~), or even at sneaking games. I remember I played my brother’s Metal Gear Solid 2 once on the PS2 and I always end up getting caught. And shot. I’ve seen the Game Over screen so many times, it’s annoying. ~_~

Anyway, Agent 47 is awesome that I really want to play it. No other character who can kill a target, find burlap overlay and wrap it up in a jiffy without spilling blood on himself. Kind of like Ezio Auditore.

Now there’s an idea… Ezio Auditore vs. Agent 47…

Versus Thane Krios. XD

Hmm… I feel a fanfiction coming on.

Wait, I think I’d better finish my other one.

Agent 47! You will be mine! I don’t care if I suck at playing the game! XD

Caffeine Excess…?

All this obsession over Mass Effect is making me feel like I’ve had too much coffee in my system.

Either that, or I am just excited.

Maybe I should lay off on my old buddy, wilbur curtis here. *pats coffee maker beside me*

It’s just that it’s been WAAAAYYYY too long since I’ve played decent video games. The last game I played was Final Fantasy XII, and it didn’t catch my fancy that I ended up doing Okami on my old PS2.

I’m really hopeful I can buy an Xbox 360 (even though I know the Xbox 720 is under it’s testing phases now). And yes, I still prefer the Xbox over the PS3 simply because of Dance Central. XD

Ugh… this is driving me nuts. There’s so many great games on the Xbox, and the only thing I’ve ever played on it is my friend’s Dance Central 3 game. T_T

I changed my mind.

I don’t want to play Mass Effect because of Thane Krios.

I’m going to play it because of Garrus Vakarian!!! XD

Garrus Vakarian… the Space Batman.

Seriously, I am worshipping this pairing, right here. It’s the cutest couple ever. A kick ass female and a sweet tough guy turian… finding out ways to make their relationship work…

A love story better than Twilight, I believe.

Besides, this guy dances the TANGO. On the tippy toes of his alien FEET. And he dances WELL.

*sigh* Why can’t I find a guy like this in real life? *minus being the whole turian thing XD*

Mass Effect!!!

I now have a new reason to actually buy an Xbox 360…


Yep, the Mass Effect Series for the Xbox 360 is now in my #2 priority games-to-buy list (Dance Central is still #1… my sister positively DEMANDS it. XD)

But… I would still have to play the first Mass Effect before playing Mass Effect 2 (where Thane is a recruitable character).

It seems I have a pechant for men (or aliens O_o) who are good with guns. I had a crush with Irvine Kinneas (fromm Final Fantasy 8) and Vincent Valentine (from Final Fantasy 7), and now I have a gamer-girl’s crush on Thane frickin’ Krios.

I. Am. So. Weird.

I need to update my Xbox wishlist. XD

Xbox 360 Woes T_T

I seriously need to get an Xbox. T_T

With the upcoming release of the PlayStation 4, I have begun to realize that I am missing out on so many frickin’ games. Assassin’s Creed 4 is already in the works, and I haven’t even played the first Assassin’s Creed!

I’ve also heard that Saint’s Row the Third’s company, THQ, has filed for bankruptsy. So now how in the hell can I get a copy?!

Dang… T_T

I still want to play SOOO many games before I get married(which is still not an option for me yet XD). But then again, my sister and I DO have a back-up plan of getting our own house and becoming old maids with lots of dogs and cats. Hahaha! It’s not such a bad idea, you know. XD

Anyway, I’m still waiting on my bonus to be able to buy an Xbox. My sister would have to wait before I get Dance Central 1/2/3, because I SHALL complete the Assassin’s Creed games on the Xbox before I get Dance Central. (she’s gonna get so pissed XD).

I wonder what other games I should get… hmm….

Body Stagnation?

Is there such a term like this? When someone hasn’t been exercising lately that they end up with creaking joints and flabby tummies? XD

Because I have that. XD

I really need to get moving again. Just this morning, I stretched my arms up and my back literally went “crack-tack-tack-tack!”

It’s been almost a year since I’ve stopped going to the gym and I’m gaining so much weight again. Hahaha! I consider this my normal cycle, but sometimes I feel it’s getting out of hand.

I know, I know… it’s my fault because I lack the will-power and discipline, and because of the fact that love food. But honestly, I am not getting any younger, so I really need to take care of my body now. Just yesterday I pulled five gray hairs out of my head. FIVE-FRICKIN-GRAY-HAIRS. For a single woman, that scares the heck out of me. (Although my father has the most glorious head of gray hair… it’s grey, but it’s still thick… and slightly unruly XD).

I’m thinking I should probably get my bike down from my hitch bike racks, or get my sister’s TV down again and do some yoga. I personally prefer the yoga more, although the recent butt cramp I had last year kinda scared me. >_<

I’m also planning to get an XBox this year, mainly because of Dance Central 1 to 3. That game has an exercise counter which counts how many calories I burn from dancing the steps. I just have to make sure that I choose the right songs that would get me moving…

And I’ll be sure to only pick, like, 3 non-dancing games so I won’t get stagnant playing that XBox. Hahaha! I think Assassin’s Creed, Saints Row the Third and Hitman: Absolution is enough. XD

Anyway back to topic, I wasn’t able to clean out my yoga mat yesterday (since my washing machine broke down and I had to wash ALL of my clothes by HAND T_T), but when I get the chance (and when the skies clear up of this rain), maybe I’ll start doing Yoga again. XD

Street Fighter X Tekken for 2012!


Is it just me or is Chun-Li’s thighs (and titanium bracelets for men)getting bigger every time Street Fighter has a new game out… ?

Anyway, looks like what I said before came true… THERE’S A STREET FIGHTER V.S. TEKKEN VIDEO GAME COMING OUT, PEOPLE!

Bad thing is, we don’t have a PS3, or an XBOX 360.

Looks like I need a credit card. >_< Anyway, yup! Street Fighter VS Tekken will be coming out next year, and from what I've been reading around the net (and from my discussions with my BFF Joyce), the game is going to be great. So far, from the previews, I've been seeing a lot of old faces, though it was mentioned that there were going to be quite a few new characters, too. Personally, I'm just happy that they made this. I guess it's going to beat the whole "Final Fantasy Dissidia" series out of the running, but still, I'm really apprehensive. The playing styles from the previews seems to lean more on the "Street Fighter" controls rather than the "Tekken" gameplay, so it might make Tekken lovers take some time first to practice. However, it's still a good thing to finally see that Ryu/Ken/Hwoarang/Steve Fox battle I've been dreaming about. I wonder how much is an XBox nowadays... hmm... Oh... I don't think Paul Phoenix was in the preview... >_<
