There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

You know, I can be such an idiot sometimes.
Primarily, when I had my first GBA. No interesting games, a lot of ports and I was very unsatisfied with the machine when I got rid of it for a pretty good price. I was disgusted with the machine, wondering if a novel game that'd intrigue me enough to want the machine again, would ever appear.

And now I have Wario Ware, the fifth game for my handheld joy. Kurukuru Kururin was the only title I owned originally that I had enough fond memories of to buy again, and now other people have the console the multi-player game does amuse. Link to the Past, Pokémon Ruby and Advance Wars were all new titles to me, all captivating me for some time. Wario Ware will be over way too quickly but will always be a fun game, especially seeing it's one of the few my mother really begun to enjoy.

"The purpose of this game is to pick the nose? How much did you pay for this game again?"

And I did get rid of SOS: Final Escape and Ape Escape 2 in exchange for Skies of Arcadia Legends. So that's another infinitely long RPG to play. All I need now is to be sacked and I'll be fine!

Speaking of the job - pay's still rubbish, and looking down the Jobcentre I saw jobs that'd be as simple as what I do now for a pound more an hour. I like to consider myself loyal, but I'm curious over what I could earn if I really pushed myself, heh.

In other news, whilst eating salty crisps I managed to get a paper-cutesque thing happen to my tongue due to a sharp piece of crisp, which would be bad enough if it wasn't for the fact my mouth was harvesting enough salt to make me whine like an idiot - until enough water was drunk to shut me up.

Wait, that's not real news? So it isn't!

So Pokemon Ruby. Is it worth it? And can you get a reasonably priced seccy hand copy?

It's worth it if you're in the mood for collecting all over again. One thing I have noticed though is that you'll be through the game a few hours before you see a Pokemon that's from one of the old games... it isn't too bad a game to play in moderately long bursts - but it's useless for a five minute blast. The new ideas feel a bit twee, but they do improve the Pokemon and they don't take long to do.

And there's no hope of the shop getting a reasonably priced second hand copy. I think brand new online at £25.99 is the best I could find for it. The shop, when they were selling it, had them in (and selling fast) at £38.

Got my copy for free. I babysat a kid who found a GBA on the bus with Pokemon Ruby in it. Since there was no identification on the GBA, he kept it. But he doesn't like Pokemon, he gave it to me.

I haven't played it though (watch out, the real point is coming) because AoS gives my GBA a heartbeat. All I can say about it here is this:

It's great for Castlevania game.

Hell yeah.

I love Wario Ware with the undying passion of a thousand suns. :-) I have everything unlocked except the last game you get by getting all the medals on every game in grid mode. And even after I do that the game will still be fun purely for the competition factor of keeping my scores better then my sister's. :-P
