p.s. i have 2 'things i love beginning with k' so you get 2 things i love in the one blog! exciting huh?
you know when you're a kid, & your whole childhood focuses around one thing? may it be sports, or reading, or cartoons. mine was nintendo. i loved nintendo, & i still do. that's why it was such a shock when i found that i actually liked a sony game. it started when i was at my friend natalee's house, who dabbled in & out of xbox & ps2 games (i'm saying dabbled like it was drugs and not video games)
i was in the middle of bragging about how i'd beaten the elite 4 for the millionth time (cause that's prestigious stuff to 9 year olds) when she whipped out kingdom hearts & beagn playing that. i was agast.
so i sat angrily on her bed while she stayed glued infront of the tv screen. then i heard the familiar voices of disney characters, & i couldn't help but not pry my eyes away from my GBA & take a peek at what she was doing. i think it was at that moment i began my affair with sony. at first it was just playing a half hour or so of kingdom hearts when i was at natalee's house. but when we moved back to scotland, i was in a game store & i seen a cheap ps2 + kingdom hearts. i felt awful, but i bumped the affair up a level. in the following days & weeks, i would spend all my spare time with sora, travelling to different worlds, fighting the heartless, & eventually, i battled my way to the end. it felt strange that i had completed a non-nintendo game, & had actually had fun. so soon after completeing it i was on amazon & i came across the second kingdom hearts game for like £5. once again, my relationship with sony was triumphant over my never ending love with nintendo. the second KH 2 arrived i played it constantly, until i reached the awkward stage of completion once more.
there's a KH game coming out in october, called 358/2 days. but it's kind of a sequel to chain of memories for GBA, which apparently was rubbish so i never bought it. but i think i'll have to if i want to understand half the things going on in 358/2 days. i know the gist of chain of memories, but whatever. it'll be fun playing a KH game that i haven't completed a billion times.
& number 2: i fucking love kool-aid
