So previously on KillerRamen's Blog, some dude broke into my house and stole a lot of my stuff. http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?b=17448
I've been living with my parents since then and I've been starting to put back the pieces. I got a new laptop and a new bookbag which I really like. I've been gaming on my PSOne playing the Misadventures of Tron Bonne.
Today I went to the Microcenter and was looking at their PSOne games. Believe it or not, but they still sell PSOne games brand new. They had Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy Chronicles and something else. I ended up not buying one, but I suspect I'll need something to play down the road.
The Microsoft Store's super slow delivery service finally delievered me my Kinect. So now I have a Kinect, Kinect Adventures, Kinectimals, Dance Central and no Xbox.
I guess it's better this way because it would have been gone too.
I've also been recreating all of the work I lost that was on my old laptop. My seminar professor is awesome and she seems like she's willing to work with me on a due date for my paper. I'm just trying to get a presentation together right now, so we'll see how that goes. Honestly, the hardest part is trying to recreate all the hours of research.
So, I got a call from the police today about my Hannah Montana PSP, but it's in Montana or Minnesota or something, so it's probably not the right one. So I went back to my place today to check the serial number on the box...
Guess what happened? They broke in again. AGAIN! Twice in one week, I mean, what the hell? The police came again and they got quite a few prints. The dude messed with my limited edition Final Fantasy XIII soundtrack and guess what? The super slick case picks up finger prints really well, so who knows. Maybe they'll find a match.
In terms of stuff, it doesn't look like they took anything else. They just randsacked the place looking for the couple hundred dollars in cash they dropped the last time they broke in. (I was saving for a TV... I guess next time I'll just buy Amazon giftcards and tie it to my account when I'm saving up for something special)
Honestly, I am just glad I wasn't there and all of the important things that didn't get stolen the first were already out of the house. I could tell the guy was messing with my cutlery and I found my butcher's knife in my living room for some reason. I'd rather not think about what would have happened if I was there... I don't know what's going to happen with school now. It's really hard to get my head back into the whole law school thing.
er who keeps breaking into my house, this one is for you...
So aside from the suck that's been going on, I've been thinking about getting a newer system. My PSOne is awesome, but it's kind of strange to go back after all this time. My PS3 is my favorite system (I love JRPGs/SRPGs), but I really want to play the new Kinect stuff and I have a lot of Microsoft Space Dollars. The Wii on the otherhand, while not my favorite console is super cheap ($199 + $50 rewards points this week at K-Mart) and would make it really easy to replace (it also has Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love... Which is my favorite game of this year). Finally while the PS2 is even cheaper with a great library, nothing new is coming out for it aside from some games I don't really care about.
So I'll pose this question for my blog, if you had all of your consoles stolen from you aside from your PSOne, which one would you replace first? Or would you just keep gaming on your PSOne until you get everything else straigthened out?
So apparently there was a Greatful Dead Concert (or the dudes that formed Greatful Dead) at SLU today.. It definitely made the night interesting in a good way. There were all sorts of interesting characters out around school when I was making my way home tonight.
In terms of something awesome that happened tonight, I got a free chicken dinner tonight at the Chick-fill-A on campus. They took like 25 minutes to make me my chicken nuggets and then the nugget pressure cooker got stuck. I ended up getting an orange soda, a chicken sandwhich, some fries and a 12 piece chicken nugget all for free!
(The cows would be pleased)
