VG Blog is, simply put, where I discuss anything video game related. Previews, reviews, my own game progress, etc. Hope you enjoy.
I have far too many games to complete, and I don't know if I ever will manage to do so, especially since I'm spending so much time here. And as soon as I start/finish one game, another is released that I must have, or an older game I've wanted receives a price drop.
I'm already racing against time 'til October, when the two next big games I want, The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (Nintendo DS; Oct. 1) & Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction (Oct. 23; Which also calls for a PS3 purchase), are released, and I'll be purchasing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as soon as I get my PS3. After that, more, such as Assassin's Creed (PS3; Early November), Super Mario Galaxy (Wii; Nov. 12), Super Smash Brothers: Brawl (Wii; Dec. 3), Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3; Early 2008) and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3; Early 2008), plus others in between those releases, and those in the indefinite future (Such as the new Splinter Cell: Conviction and Final Fantasy Versus XIII). This also doesn't include any Virtual Console releases I've yet to become knowledgeable of, or games such as Spider-Man: Friend Or Foe, to which I'm on the fence.
The list (In no particular order):
Pokemon Diamond (DS) - 3 Badges, not nearly completed Pokedex, or game.
Need For Speed: Underground 2 (PS2) - Not yet started.

The Legend Of Zelda II (Wii VC) - I don't even know what the Hell to do...
The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past (Wii VC) - Not yet started.
So you see, my schedule is quite full.
And many of the above are games that will take forever to complete. DQVIII and FFXII alone will take probably 100+ hours, if not more. Bully & Vice City Stories will be upwards to 40-50. Pokemon & FFIII, even though they are handheld games, are also about 50-60+ hours each. Probably the same with Phantom Hourglass when it comes out.
On top of this, I've two games on order: Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (PS2) and Burnout: Dominator (PS2), which of course shall require more time.
It's not a problem of money, luckily (For the most part anyway). I've got a job, and I live at home, so I'm bill-less (With the exception of $20 a month for my Cell Phone). I do have a student loan to start paying off in February, but by then I anticipate having a better job. So time is the only real factor. Time is my only true enemy.
Wish me luck! Better yet, wish me time! I need it...desperately.
