Judie’s Gear Diary – 2005-08-19


Stop the presses!

I just got an email announcing the Monday release of
Arvale II: Ocean of Time! Woo Hoo!!

For those of you that don’t remember, Arvale
I: Journey of Illusion
was the first turn based RPG that I ever played to
completion. I have been excitedly waiting for its follow up…and I can’t wait
to immerse myself in the fun again. Of course, I will be practically worthless
until I complete the game, so if you email me and I don’t reply back – now
