My copy of book 11 has shipped. slim chance it might arrive today, but looking likely for tomorrow, possibly Wednesday (since it's in Ohio right now, or at least was.) i reread book 9, and more than half way done book 10. i hope to finish book 10 tonight. i read some summaries for the earlier books so i didn't have to reread the whole series, since i so don't have the time for that.

book 11 promises to have a lot more action than book 10, which was a bit disappointing since NOTHING HAPPENED until the final damn chapter. but book 11, it shall continue the story... i shall at last find out what happens. oh yes.

With the two big series i've been reading the past few years releasing their penultimate books this year, i'm curious as to which will come out with the final book sooner? Will it be book 7 or book 12? bets anyone? Or will they both be within months of each other like book 6/book 11?

I really want to play Lufia 1 & 2 again. should i try to get the games used for SNES, or break down and splurge a bit and get the GBA? there are so many old school RPGs on GBA now, it really might be worth pickign up. but i don't play my gameboy much these days, so maybe i should bother. But i do want to play those games. *le sigh* the dilemma.

I would suggest getting a GBA SP. You should be able to find one used for relatively cheap.

In other news, for a new "old-school style" RPG, wait until November for a new Dragon Warrior game for PS2. I for one can't wait.

I was thinking the SP, and from what i can see, it costs 80$. might be able to find a little cheaper because of a sale or something, but i'm looking at about 80$ and then probably at least that or more on just a few games. fortunately my current library of games will still be able to be played on the newer model console.

I'm not a big fan of the Dragon Warrior series...don't like the character design at all. never cared for the Dragon Ball style.

But besides Lufia, i AM looking forward to picking up the original Zelda. good stuff that.

My bet is HP book 7 will be out before RJ book 12. Reason being RJ has the audacity to work on other projects. Doesn't he KNOW that we're a bunch of strung out addicts looking for closure?!

I'm guessing book 12 will be first. Book 10 came out in january 2003, book 11 2.5 years later. he finished it back in the early spring, but let it go through the full editorial process, and it still came out under 3 years later. he's been pretty darn good to keeping with 2-3 years, while JK's been known to push back dates. for a couple years.

November 2011
