Well I’m slowly recovering from the flu. Last night after being caught in traffic for an excessive amount of time on I-20, I stopped at the Parks mall before heading home for the night. While there I paid up and picked up my previously reserved copy of Final Fantasy X-2 for PS2. I then went downstairs and found my way to a cart that I had seen previously that sells personalized Veggitales CDs and picked one up in which the Veggitales will sing to my nephew Zach, figuring that will be a good christmas present for him. The lady at the card was nice enough to let me listen to it before purchasing it, and I chuckled as I heard “If Zach likes to talk with Tomatoes, if a Squash can make you smile, if Zach likes to waltz with potatoes, up and down the produce aisle…”. It was very funny and I’m sure my nephew will love it.
I then got a cheesesteak sandwhich before driving home to try my long anticipated video game. I had seen japanese videos of the opening scene but the english version was slightly different. It was indeed a pop concert, but what struck me was how very Charlie’s Angels the opening sequence was. When each of the 3 female lead characters were introduced we are taken to a screen showing just that character on a colorful background with their name, then when all 3 characters were together they strike attack poses and all 3 of them go over the colored background with Y R P on the bottom. The only thing missing was the Charlie’s Angels theme song, although the music at that point in the game was of a similar style. Fortunately from that point on the only symbalance to CA was the fact that the 3 main characters are female and they kick some butt.
I must say however if Brother and Yuna end up together by the end of the game I’m going to be pretty ticked! Brother has a very obvious crush on Yuna which he shows by excessive concern for her safety and a crazy desire to see her dance.
