I'm glad to say I've beaten Riku at fighting and at the race. For the life of me, I just couldn't stay on top of the palm trees on my way back to Kairi. It seems that if Sora is to run below the palm trees, have him jump onto the elevated sandy ledge and jump back onto the bridge platforms. I was trying to have him swim around that ledge and make a mad dash across the sand! Oy! Wasn't working! The storm finally hits the islands, and dang, do those Heartless beings come in by the swarms! Just a tip to those who are about to reach this point: Sora's little beating stick is ineffective, so don't bother trying to battle them until he gets something better! I got Sora to level up a bunch of times before heading off to Traverse Town. The big Heartless is a big wimp! But then again, maybe that's a good thing since Sora's not too strong just yet. I'm right now lost and confused in Traverse Town. I managed to find 2 cute Moogles and Cid! I just wish I can find Cid's Accessories Shop again because he has a save pad. Apparently, 99 Dalmations are missing, and Donald's nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie run a shop in Traverse Town, too! I've always wondered who their father (Donad's brother) is. You never see this mysterious duck...

I'm so glad I don't live in Greece right now. I feel terrible for any gamers who are living there. If you want to know what I'm refering to, read this news article from GameSpot about it. On happier news, I FINALLY GOT KINGDOM HEARTS on Thursday!!!! I had hoped that on Tuesday, the store would have gotten a game shipment in, but alas, just music. Apparently, the gaming stores in the mall had a game shipment in, but weren't allowed to sell Kingdom Hearts until Wednesday, unless I was willing to put down a reserve fee or something. They were selling it for $54.00?!?! Geez! Well, Thursday rolled around, which is the massive shipping day for my store. At 5:00 PM, still no sign of the game. I was getting a bit frustrated at this point, so I started prying open box after box, until finally, I found a box with 4 Kingdom Hearts games in it! Woohoo! I bought a copy and went to the Electronics Boutique to get a copy of the super cool strategy guide. So far, I'm still on Destiny Island trying to beat Riku at fighting and at the race. I saw a glimpse of Donald and Goofy. So cool!
