I just bought Ghost Trick this weekend! I've only played the first two chapters, but I love where this is going. I'm going to recommend it to all my PW-loving friends.

And I was so excited when I learned that they named the doggy Missile. :3

I was happy that they named the dog Missile as well! There weren't really a lot of Phoenix Wright references in Ghost Trick either.

I could be wrong, but I think I heard that Shu Tamaki's dog is named Missile, and that's where the name comes from. I'll have to double check on that though.

Co-worker let me borrow Ghost Trick so I will be playing that soon as well! Otherwise my DS has been getting some Dragon Quest V love. That game is so good. I got a good chunk into it a while back on my old laptop before it died, so now I will finally beat this game! I am still sort of playing SoulSilver but it pales in comparison to Dragon Quest so I lose interest pretty quick.

Today at work a very nice customer let me keep all of the PS1 games he brought to trade in but couldn't since GameStop doesn't take them. I am stoked. Some gems in the pile include Parasite Eve which I am playing now. I also got FF7 through FF9 (all black label, for you collectors here), Tactics, Anthology, and games like Resident Evil 1 through 3 and a bunch of other great ones. Wheeee!

I double-checked the thing with Shu Takumi's dog. He has a Pomeranian seen here. I'm not sure if his dog's name is really Missile or not though, but Missile (from Ghost Trick) was definitely based on him!

Nice!!

Do you have a local non-Gamestop store near you? When I worked at Gamestop we'd have to direct people to the non-Gamestop game stores (there was one about 10 minutes down the road one way, and one about 15 down the road the other way) if they asked about PS1 games.

Also, I just noticed I don't own a legit copy of FF Anthology. I thought I did, but it was Chronicles (IV and chrono Trigger) that I was thinking of. Damn, I need to go fix that.

Nope. Around here there's really nothing else that I know of. 10 minutes up the freeway from my store (where I actually live) there's another GameStop. Haha.

Also that guy's pomeranian is adorable. *-*

I might decide against keeping Anthology since I already have FF5 & 6 on GBA. I will keep you updated.

Parasite Eve = a lot of fun. And really gruesome, dear god.

That is the cutest dog ever.

His one cat also looks kind of like Shoe (who I'm sure was named after Shu himself) from Justice for All.

I'm actually starting to realize just how much Shu Takumi must love animals.

Michi, is this your first time playing Parasite Eve? That game is amazing! I'm still waiting for 3rd Birthday... as I have been for several years now.

I totally sqee'd!!! SO CUTE! I sort of want to play Ghost Trick again now that I know the ending to see how that affects my take on other events.

SPOILER: (highlight to read)
Someone already mentioned how now it makes sense that Sissel can't read. And a lot of his comments to Missile - like about barking - take on new meaning once you know he's a cat. And the fact that the first time 10-year old Missile talks to him, he just took off - SO LIKE A CAT! So the second time Missile had to trick him. LOL!


I bit the bullet and restarted GS: Dark Dawn. -_-; I just have to have all the Djinni.

I had to go buy a new PS2 memory card this weekend. Started playing Beyond Good and Evil and then didn't have enough room to save it. -_-;

Yeah. I didn't know anyone that had it, I don't think, and all my PS1 games were either from friends, presents, or ... uh, the occasional rental. I used my PS1 mostly for Final Fantasy, Wild Arms, Chrono Cross, Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, stuff like that. I didn't start branching out until I was playing stuff like Devil May Cry on PS2. Tangent but yeah, that is why!

I want to replay it again too, and I finally got it back from my sister so I think I'll put aside 999 for now and replay Ghost Trick (and finish replaying the Phoenix Wright games).


SPOILER: (highlight to read)
TV tropes has a list of some of the hints at the ending under the foreshadowing section: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GhostTrick I thought of some other ones too, like when Missile and Sissel were both wondering "why people die when they hear that loud bang" regarding guns. They both had the same type of naivety throughout the whole game.

I do. Whenever we get people who want to trade in PS1 or original Xbox games, we direct them to Toys 'n Joys, which is pretty much our biggest import shop.

I have a game specialty store, which sells every type of console and the games. Their stuff can be a bit pricey, but they thoroughly test and refurbish everything so I'm willing to spend the extra money knowing that I'm getting a quality product. I trust these guys a lot when it comes to games.

I also have a music store that has about 5 or 6 locations in my area, but it's one of those things that's only in my area. All of their stores have a quadrant dedicated to games. They take any game or console, but they don't have a method of testing the games unless they happen to have that console, so sometimes they sell broken games. Their prices are sometimes really cheap, but sometimes they do weird things like sell older current-gen games (like Gears of War) for $60. Other times, they'll have multiple copies of the same product but each one will be a different price.

Then of course there's Gamestop, and there's, like, a billion of those around here. All the employees are cool though.

Oh my god. A dog with the cuteness factor of a cat?!? THIS IS THE DIRTY BOMB OF THE ANIMAL WORLD!

Metroid other M in HARD mode.

I finally got that last item I couldn't get for months, unlocking the last gallery and hard mode made my day.

I thought getting through Other M with the audio one was hard mode?

That being said, it's been MvC3 and P3P as usually, although I ended up buying Scurge for the DS for like $10 buck new at Gamestop. It's like a knock off Metroid, but in a good way.
