I hope everyone had a heartfelt day of remembrance this past Wednesday. I had to work at the mall that day and, gee, it was so empty. There were a few customers, but not many. The release date is just 3 days away, so get your Kingdom Hearts copies soon! I really hope we get a shipment in, but I guess I'll find out since I have to work that day. I finally got the October 2002 issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine. The in-depth view on the game is incredibly long. I was quite impressed! It covers the worlds in a bit more detail and gives some insight into the development of the game. It also has a new preview of the game. I couldn't find any playable demo, though. I was a bit disappointed there. Although the Spyro the Dragon demo was very cute. If you hadn't heard already, Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth will appear for the US release of the game. Woohoo! >:-) An interesting side note ... if Sephiroth ever appeared in a movie, the magazine says that Orlando Bloom -- the blonde, long-haired, elf archer Legolas Greenleaf from Lord of the Rings -- would make a good candidate. Just by comparing physical appearance, I thought it was an excellent match.

On my way to depositing my first paycheck of my new job, I stopped by a local grocery store. The new October 2002 issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine is out! You cannot miss it since the magazine's cover has the Kingdom Hearts image on it. From what I could see on the cover, the CD includes a playable demo of the game!!!! Everyone, go out to your local bookstore or any store with a good magazine section and pick up a copy! I haven't picked one up myself since I was outta cash at the moment, but once my check goes into my account, I'm off to buy a copy. Woohoo! :-D
