Local Superstitions

When it comes to games I'm kinda picky and my library while moderately sized, is mostly comprised of titles that everyone has herd of. However when you own a new system you can't be picky for the soul reason that there's not much of anything well known available. For that reason i love and hate it when new systems are released. I get a chance to purchase new different and unknown titles without thinking that i wasted my cash because there were better titles available.

This brings me to subject of the game Folklore. The whole reason that i bought the game was because of how my plans to purchase a different one fell through. After one week I beat the game and it wasn't all that bad. It was worth the money but not much more than just that. The main reason is that the gameplay itself while ok isn't something I'm going to go back to because of how fun it was. The story would probably warrant another start to finish run though. It had many twists right to the end and was what made the game as worth the while as it was.

Game intro (seems to be old the village name is different in the the games)

On a side note the whole game really felt western as if there was no Japaneses influence. It felt so authentic when i first saw the game i wondered if it was made in the states. Anyway it was made in japan and that whole authentic feeling was blown away when the credits were scrolling and halfway through a j-pop song began to play... it was weird to say the lest.

j-pop fit to Irish folklore...

TONS of yen = LOTS of dollars

Neon genesis evangelion, that is the title of the biggest anime is the history of the Japaneses animation industry ever. Let me say right now that if you think your an anime freak or any type of otaku and don't know about this show your a light weight. If you have herd of it but haven't watched it you set slightly above that. Evangelion is a psychological and right out confusing anime that really makes you question the fabric of time and reality itself.
in my personal opinion there are two animes that will always be timeless. those are evangeilon and cowboy bebop; but even bebop came after and felt the effects of evangelion. Because of how revolutionary the show was bebop nearly didn't air and almost became a defunct show.

Ok ok enough i'll get to the point. After more then ten years the infamous evangelion series is having a rehash and is being animated as four movies. Hopefully it will make more sense this time around but the major point is the amount of money the first film has made. since opening on sep. 1st it has grossed 1.468 billion yen. Ok so what yen is like junk to the us dollar! yeah i know but the USD figure is $12,774,801. I really don't care who you are, that is still a lot of money.

I'm a evangelion fan myself and i look forward to getting my hands on there movies one way or another. Also just for the record I WILL be buying them when they come out because of how much i love the series, I own the series full sized platinum anniversary box set.

not much else to say so here's the original intro.
