You know, it’s interesting what impressions you give others, even though you don’t mean to sometimes. It happens to me a lot. I think mainly due to excessive behavior.

(not surprisingly, this was also when I met my girlfriend who is now my wife). I had purchased Final Fantasy XII when it was first released. The special edition version from EB games/Gamestop that had the bonus DVD and cool metal case. I even bought the special edition strategy guide I’m so hardcore!

So why is it that only now that I start playing FFXII, a Playstation 2 game, on my Playstation3? Backlog.
