Nothing like a shopping spree...

To make your otherwise bum week that much better!

So, today I hung out with my cousin Eddie. I have two cousins named Eddie, one of whom I hate, the other of whom I love. This is obviously the one I love. I got him a 50 dollar gift card to best buy for his birthday, like I have for the last two years in a row, but his birthday was in October and I barely gave it to him today...

We decided to go hit up the Wharf in Monterey. It was decent. Good food, good company. The drive to Monterey is a lot faster than I thought. And it's pretty! I haven't seen the ocean in a good year!

Then we went to the Del Monte Shopping Center. I don't think I've ever been there. It's an outdoor mall. It really isn't that impressive. Lots of stores, lots of failage. I did go to Gamestop and pick up King of Fighters XI (Vanessa be proud!) and Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max. The people at that Gamestop were helpful and kind! Nothing like the one I usually go to! But nothing else was there really.

Then we went to the new Bust Buy that opened in Marina. I needed to get me a new surround sound system, because my old one is on the fritz. They didn't have the one I wanted (IE: the cheaper one), so I spent another 30 bucks. I found Mario Party DS, too, and picked up Mulan!

Then I watched Mulan. That's good times. But I noticed something when I watched the original 'true to your heart' video. Them Lachey boys (mostly Nick) have some big ass ears. Maybe it was the hat that he was wearing. I dunno. Just saying.

So, I took a hit in the wallet. Nothing huge. And it was fun to spend money. I love spending money!

It's good to hear that your month is improving somewhat -- retail therapy may be bad for the wallet, but its effect on the soul is undeniable.

I do have KoF XI (I can't wait for '98 Ultimate Match), but is SFA3 Max something different than the old PS1 version? Also, I bet I'm going to regret opening this can of worms, but...what do you think of SFIV so far? I think it's got potential despite its spotty history (the game's director made Capcom Fighting Jam / Evolution,

fuseji wishes SNK was all the rage.

Indeed, retail therapy is my panacea. I can't help it, I grew up in the 80s!

SFA3 Max is a little bit different. Essentially, it's the same. But they have 4 new characters (Yun, Maki, Eagle and Ingrid), plus everyone is unlocked from the getgo. They have a shitload of new modes, too.

SFIV...

I hate the graphics. I honestly and truly hate the graphics. I swear to god if they make my beloved Chunner look like shit the way they make Ryu and Ken look all old and wrinkled, I will not be pleased. Usually the graphics are okay as long as they aren't close ups.

I'm upset about the story. I mean, this is supposedly after Super Turbo, right? Which already means that I won't get Ibiki back, and that makes me sad. IBIKI IS LOVE! But maybe Sakura can come back and we can see what she's been up to post Alpha.

I'm going to buy it, no matter what, but I will not be without my worries.

You know what really pisses me off? Soul Calibur IV. Yoda's 360 exclusive! WHY?! WHY!?!?!?!
