Grapist

For those of you does not know the meaning of the title, let me shed the light to all of you. Grapist is the term used to describe a person who does not have a job or jobless. The word came from a direct translation from Bahasa Malaysia, penganggur. In BM anggur means grape, so penganggur is called grapist. You know, the guy who plays guitar is call guitarist, bass is bassist, so penganggur's grapist. I've thought of the word graper but that's a person's name. But this is not a real translation mind you, it's just me creating something out of nothing...

But if you really want to know the meaning of the word grapist, better look at here. But this one's also not the true meaning of that word, so I'll stick with mine because mine's not as vulgar.

Why am I naming the title like that? It is because I am one. A person who does not have a job and spends his time playing video games, watching downloaded fansubs/movies/tv shows, like the malay people say, finishing the rice (menghabiskan beras)...

With this super lots of free time, better I do something useful to myself, that is polishing my typing skills and also writing. I envy Mr. Shaggy because he has the time and tools needed to write long entries. My blog these past few entries are not as long as his, mainly about cintan, which is unrequited. So what should I write about? Album reviews like Mr. Mat Yuz? Gold traying like Miss Ani? (I could not fine the proper word for mendulang so I used direct translation again!).

So to not make this entry empty, let me tell you what games that I am currently playing right now. Ok, I know, I'm still playing with my PS2 when other people are playing their state of the art consoles right now, but what can I do, I can't afford the hardware, not to mention the software must be original. It's not that I support piracy, it's just because there's the RM4 DVD and the RM100++ DVD, which one will you buy? Of course the RM4 one right? When I can afford buying those state-of-the-art consoles and games is when I have a proper job and have lots of free time to play it. If I work at a factory I don't think I'll have the time and energy to play games. Maybe a government servant like Mr. Mohsin. He has lots of free time in his hands.

Back to the topic, I'm now playing games that have been sitting around gathering dust because of my console has been faulty for the past 2 years or so. Now it is repaired! RM160 to repair the mirror for the lens and browser, RM30 for 2 gamepads and RM40 for a memory card. The old gamepad is broken but a genuine Sony gamepad, my old memory card I can't seem to remember where I put it last. So RM230 flew away from my RM500 salary... Luckily the government paid another RM500 for my INSEP allowance. Just now my beloved Emak injected another RM50 for me because the allowance balance is RM13 only. I love my Emak!



Right now Mr. Kencik is playing Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly with me as the coach as I view the walkthrough at gamefaqs. This game is not for kids or people with weak hearts. This is the game that I myself have problems playing in the dark. This game is super duper scary! As with other ghost oriented games, you use machine guns, pistols, shotguns and anything with bullets to kill ghosts but not this game, you must capture ghost using and old camera, named Camera Obscura. Imagine having to look at the viewfinder and looking at the eerie ghost and at the same time evading their attacks. Forgot to mention the protagonist in this game is a little girl, who walks and runs very slowly... Currently in chapter 4 of the game, another 5 to end it.




Other games that I play are Kingdom Hearts 2, an RPG game made by Square-Enix in association with Buena Vista Games. Yeah, Disney... Shaggy must love this game because it features characters from the Disney universe. The main character is Sora, a boy bearing a keyblade (a blade that looks like a key) that can unlock any locks. He is accompanied by two all time favourite characters from Disney, Donald and Goofy. Their mission is to search for 3 people, Riku, Kairi and King Mickey. King Mickey is the ruler of Disney kingdom and is lost and the heroes must search for him. Riku and Kairi are Sora's friends that's lost in the first installment of the game. There's also other characters that you can use such as Aladin, Capt. Jack Sparrow, Ariel, Mulan, Tron and lots more.

Other games that we play include GT4, WE2008, Burnout, KOF collection, NFS Prostreet and others. No reviews for now because all of them are not finished yet.

Getting tired of typing, with many distractions, so I'll end this entry.
