Waking the Wind

Thursday, March 27th, 2003

I just got my copy of The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker, but I just bought Pokémon Sapphire last week and with the copious amount of homework I have, I don’t think I’ll be able to play it for about a month.

One of my all time favorite games for the TI-99/4A was Parsec. Never mind the fact that we only had three games for the system total (Parsec, Radar Rat Race, and Hustle).

Apparently some people are overflowing with creative juicyness, virtually dripping with it. Well they think they are anyway. I personally could not imagine writing about video games in fiction style but many people think it is a good idea apparently…and I couldnt possibly fathom writing about this even though it is currently one of my fav’s…oh well.

Got an old 486 laying around? Don’t throw it out, turn it into a gaming machine.

I just recently came into possesion of a 486… time to dust off those copies of Hocus Pocus and Mystic Towers that I’ve been hanging on to.
