My 3DS (JP) Is Finally Here! o(*゚▽゚*)o

It arrived yesterday actually, and I noticed the missed call from the shop after I got home from the gym and already showered. orz
But it's ok. I got it today and it's officially one month before my birthday. My advanced birthday present for myself. (≧∇≦)♪
I was so excited that I was spamming Rai on LINE about it. And I decided to pick it up after class coz I'm afraid it will be even harder for me to concentrate in class if I picked it up along the way to school. orz
When I was at the shop, the staff said this order was made specially for me coz it's the one and only Japan unit ordered while the rest were all local units. Aww~ (*´ω`*)

じゃーじゃーん♪ I decided to name him Kakihara. (*´ω`*)

I love the metallic finish! (*゚▽゚*)

I got the staff to apply the screen protectors for me. I somehow feel that it's lighter than the DS Lite. Could be just me. ┐(´ー`)┌

My Mii~ Rai, Let's hang out on Mii Plaza soon! (≧∇≦)♪

After all the settings are done~ And obviously, the first game to play is レイトン教授VS逆転裁判! o(*゚▽゚*)o
BUT... I need to update the firmware before I can play, and there's not enough battery power to do so. It prompted me to charge it and it will update only when there's enough power. So it's charging right now. ( ;∀;)

This will keep me busy along with a lot of backlog games to clear. I got a few games from Rai over the CF weekend last year too.
それじゃあ!(´ ∇`)ノ

レイトン教授VS逆転裁判 GET! o(*゚▽゚*)o

I got the game before I got my 3Ds. ♪~ (゚ε゚;)

I wanted to get the JP unit of the 3DS in the last week of December (2012), actually. But it just so happened that the last unit was sold out. ┐(´ー`)┌
It's ok, it was a blue unit anyway. I want a red unit.
I placed an order for it yesterday while grabbing my copy of Gyakuten vs Layton. It was the only copy left on the shelf, and I don't wanna risk having the console and have no game, so I grabbed it first. Even the staff was telling me to just grab it as she placed my reservation in her system. (*´ω`*)

I also grabbed a copy of Patapon 2 since I'm just done with Patapon 1. It will be my companion as I do house visits during Chinese New Year. ( ・ิω・ิ)
As I was checking the contents at the counter, the staff ran up to me to give me a Little Big Planet Calender for 2013. ( ̄▽ ̄)

It's always little sweet gestures like these that makes me appreciate their attentiveness and happy to be their regular customer. In fact, everytime I visit the shop, she'll happily come up to me and ask me if I need help on what I'm looking for. (*´ω`*)

Next game for the 3DS that I'm anticipating will be Gyakuten Saiban 5! (≧∇≦)♪

After 10 years: 『逆転裁判5』制作決定!

I was on my way home from class yesterday when I checked Twitter on my phone and saw Anna tweeting about it.
I could hardly contain my squeal! XD;

Finally! After 10 years and two Kenji games, GYAKUTEN SAIBAN 5!!!
The news can be read here:

After that, I Tweeted and Plurked and almost crossed the road recklessly like an idiot. XD;

I really really hope that:
1. It will be on the DS
2. It will continue in the time frame after GS3 and GK2 since the Kenji series happens after GS3.

I've pretty much started work for this year's cosplay plans. Not much but there's still progress here and there.

Another lump of fabric. XD;

よーし~ 頑張るぞ~

Lovely Surprise! ♥

I met up with Natalie last Saturday for lunch and then we met up with Kyoka to hang out and catch up with each other over dinner. It was great! =)
We walked around Tampines Mall and checked out the Hokkaido fair too, before checking out the game store named Game Store. And guess what I found?


Even though I've long cleared all the games in English, I grabbed this to collect/replay in Japanese without a second thought!
It's just like last year (23rd October! I STILL REMEMBER!) when I was browsing through at Funz Centre and found the 1st game in Japanese and grabbed it to collect/replay in Japanese. What are the odds I'll be able to find the 3rd game in Japanese on a shelf? (≧▽≦)

Putting it together with the Kenji series, after I'm done cleaning up the poor dirtied cover. (≧▽≦)
Kenji 1 is in English coz it was a birthday present from a friend last year. But being able to put both series with their first and second games together is just awesome for me. (≧▽≦)

So basically, I've been spending time since last Saturday replaying Saiban 2 in Japanese. This makes it the 2nd in the series I've played in both languages, with Saiban 1 being the first that I cleared in Japanese in English.
3rd in terms of clearing it in Japanese, with Kenji 2 being the sole game in the series I cleared in Japanese first since there isn't any English localization done yet. I do hope it gets translated though! I want to see how they change the funny Japanese word plays in English.

Okamiden! Chibiterasu is so darn cute! ♥

Got my hands on the US version of Okamiden on Wednesday and have cleared the first part so far.
I just wish work didn't sap so much of my energy so that I can spend more time with my games. =(

I've nudged Silvennia into playing it, adding more unfinished games into her log. XD;
Naoko and Rai-chan are playing too! YAY!
Anyone else playing this game at the moment?

I've been waiting for the US release of this game for some time now and I'm rather happy with this.
I know there were mixed reactions when they announced that it will be on the DS platform, but I personally liked the idea because it's easier and more fun to draw in the game this way. In fact, I think it's the perfect platform for it. XD

Chibiterasu is such a cute little wolf! And every other celestial being's descendants are so adorable! Seahorses, little birds, litte rats and, little monkeys! ♥
And Kuni, the son of Susanoo and Kushi. XD

Sadly, I didn't get the Chibetersu bolster back then. Kinda regretted it. =(
I've gotten my hands on the OST though. Beautiful music by Kondou Rei as always. ♫
Then again, I've always loved instrumentals a lot. Eh heh... But the OST is really good. I'd recommend it to anyone who never played the game before too. ♪

So far, I find the story development very steady. Good pacing without compromising the details.
No, I'm not being biased because one of the producers is Eshiro Motohide. XD;;
