I just ordered the green PSP + Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker pack, as well as Dissidia, Crisis Core, and FFT. I feel slightly guilty because I bought them all new, and who buys games new? Besides me, apparently. I believe I'll be holding off on Cata until the summer, and I'll be holding off on a PS3 until PS4 comes out. Alas.

So while I was in Bosnia, I really wanted to pick up a Dzeko Wolfsburg jersey, except they only carried his Bosnia NT kit, which makes sense, but I didn't want a Bosnia kit. But bizarrely enough, there was a random little store that had a RM Özil jersey on display, so I got one of those. The shopkeep was delighted with me--apparently, the Özil kits had just arrived the day before, and I was the first to buy one. He gave me free whistles. Go me, I guess.

Anyway, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] savepureness.

Day 01 – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just freaking end already (or both!)

Mike Carey's Felix Castor series (starting with The Devil You Know) needs to go on for longer. It's terribly similar to the Dresden Files; Felix Castor's an exorcist in an AU London where the dead, zombies, weres, ghosts, etc, walk the earth, and he just needs to eke out a living busting ghosts. And then there's some demons. My favorite character's a vain, paranoid zombie that's an ace hacker and collects jazz records in his abandoned movie-theater turned fortress. He's kinda cool, though I do like everyone.

The series is not technically over as far as I know, since they never specify how many books are within the series, and the fifth book's ending definitely leaves plenty of room for more story-telling. I'm pretty sure he was only contracted for five books though, so I don't see any more coming in the future.

I buy games new! Actually I only buy games new =P on the other hand...I don't buy many games anymore. I wish I could return to my childhood and those afternoons playing Sims, Age of Empires or things alike...*getsslightlydepressed*

Anyway, I may steal this meme. But, being me, I'll do it all in a row as I don't have time (nor patience lol) to do it everyday =P

Aww, no more videogames? Maybe you're growing up. :P I've fallen behind a lot on the times since I only have a PS2 and DS (and a computer), but I can't imagine my life completely without gaming. The geek runs too deep in me, sadly. If you've got the money to burn, a lot of handheld games now are designed to not suck your entire afternoon into a dark abyss of lost time. You know, mission-based, bite-sized snippets of gameplay and stuff.

It's a cool meme! I've seen musical/movie/tv-show versions of it, but those didn't interest me so much because they'd be completed dominated by Kunze (musical) or scifi (movies/tv-shows), so my answers would get really boring. You should do it. I'd love to see your answers!

I actually bought a Wii a couple of moths ago but the enthusiasm died 2 weeks after it lol
I actually liked to play a lot but there was a time where no decent games were released so i slowed down, then I went to Law School and I lost my free time. And now with the Masters Degree I forsee even less time =\

Indeed. Last meme I did I ended up writting "Rebecca" in half the answers LOL
