Hype! · 12:25am
Tomorrow, Persona Q is released, and I can honestly say that I've never been more excited about a video game in my entire life (though given that I didn't really start playing them in earnest until I was in graduate school, that statement isn't quite as hyperbolic as it sounds). But in all honesty, I think this game just may be the first time I've ever made a "Day One" purchase of a video game.* I'm absolutely certain that it will be the first time I've ever taken a day off from work because of a new game, though in my case, that day off will be Wednesday, because a) I'm not going to have a chance to play the game until it arrives in the mail on Tuesday afternoon, and b) Thursday and Friday are the Thanksgiving holiday, so I figured, "Why not make it a 5-day weekend?"
Whatever. In any case, this game is the reason I bothered to purchase a 3DS in the first place. I'm excited.
*The closest I'd ever gotten before was an impulse "Day Three" purchase of South Park: The Stick of Truth earlier this year, which turned out to be a "Day One" edition because my local independent video game store had slightly overestimated the demand for the game.
