Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Final Remix and other stuff going on...(Chuseok time)

Well, Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTAV) was released on the 17th of September, and garnered 800 million dollars in its first day alone. Apparently, the company Rockstar is predicting at least a billion dollars in sales in the first month alone.

At the time, the webs seem slow and quiet. It's probably caused by gamers working on GTAV. Feels like a cultural phenomenon at the moment.

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 came out on the 10th, and I got it a little bit afterwards, having pre-ordered it beforehand. (Time usually takes for an item to be shipped). The game is fun and intuitive. It's important to explore everything and try everything out to be able to proceed with the storyline and playthrough.

Anyhow, Chuseok was just celebrated yesterday on the 19th, but the holiday for most started on Wednesday the 18th, lasting all the way until next Monday the 23rd. So many people migrate to visit their relatives, that the neighborhood where I live is incredibly vacated and quiet (like the net is over the matter of GTAV).

Have been watching some movies I bought from movie.naver.com . (I'd have to add that I already watched these ones a long time ago, but felt compelled to get them considering the deal). Purchased Wonderful Days, Battle Royale, and Battle Royale 2 for 1,000W each (like 95 cents USD each).

Battle Royale was spectacular, as expected, but its mature content matter (it's rated 18+ by Korean standards) will probably warrant it as a movie I'll rarely watch.

Battle Royale 2 was ridiculous in many parts, but its content is rated as less mature (it's for 15+ by Korean standards) will warrant it as a movie I'll watch probably many more times. Watching BR2 gave me the same vibe I was getting from watching the Resident Evil movies. Lots of preposterous stuff (like the whole: "If one of the two of you in a couple dies, the other gets his/her head blown off by the necklace as well!"), but it's all in good fun. Case in point, BR2 just felt like something you'd sit down and watch a bunch just for fun.

Wonderful Days felt like a mature cartoon, with a bit of humor and darkness embedded. I expect myself to be able to listen to this movie over time like I do some others while I'm web-surfing.

As usual, have been having daily dreams, and dreamings. There are so many times when I'm about to embark on something interesting, only for me reminding myself that I'm a thought broadcaster (in dream!) and it ruining the whole setup. I guess even in my dreams, I can feel self-conscious.

I think that over time, I'll go back to cataloging my dreams, like I had many years ago. My in-real-life journal is full of them, but I tend to forget over time, and my handwriting becomes illegible.

Tomorrow is Saturday, and lotto night. Don't really expect to win, but it would be awesome to get just a few numbers. 3 numbers merits a 5$ reward, and 4 merits a 50$-ish reward (in Korean WON equivalent). One thing to note is, that whether I win anything or not, this buying a lotto ticket is a one-time thing.

Am still waiting for FFX/X-2 HD (Final Fantasy 10, 10-2 HD Remastered) to be announced for its US release. Apparently, it's coming to Japan sometime in December, but right now, no one knows when for the US version. It's not I'm incredibly stoked for it, but I know it'll be one of those games really worth getting. I'm rather more excited for FF13-3.

So, in FF13-3 Lightning Returns (Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13), many previous characters return. Also, the number of party members goes down to 1 (was 3 in the first FF13, and two in the second FF13). Apparently, there will be a time allotment for various activities, and something called "saving" certain characters. Whatever the game is like, I know for sure that this'll be the ONE PS3 game I will make sure to get without a doubt.

Things on mind right now: Finishing up Kingdom Hearts, and waiting for some other games to ship.
