Picked up the Castlevania Anniversary Collection. Had $10 PSN credit and figured $10 total was worth it. It's pretty weird playing NES, SNES, Gameboy games on PS4. Now I really want a Ghouls n Ghosts collection including Maximo games from Capcom. Please.

 
 
 

Here's me growing a new strawberry and trying to recover from playing Mordhau until 3am with my brother last night. #selfietoid


 
 
 

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is actually super fun and plays super well. I'm glad I finally checked it out after all of the hate died down for it. It's definitely more fun than MvC3 and actually more fun than SFV. Such a good dang time.

 
 
 

Started playing Dragon's Crown on PS3 yesterday and decided it was a good idea to use the rest of my PSN wallet monies to buy Dragon's Crown Pro and experience the game in 4K. This was a good decision. Every little bit of this game is eye/brain candy.

 
 
 

Did you guys know that Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is still really damn cool? Just in case you forgot.

 
 
 

I really want to play NBA Street Vol. 2 right now, but I have no way to do it. Starting to consider some PS2 emulation just to play it again. Remember when EA used to make cool stuff?

 
 
 

Three games off the backlog! Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, and Yakuza 6. Feels good to knock out some bigger ones! They were also some really good ones. SotTR was actually the best of the series I thought. Less murder and more tombin' was good.

 
 
 

If ya'll got nothing going on tonight and want to help my old buddy out, he's trying to get Affiliate status on Twitch and just needs some more viewers/followers. If you go, thanks, that's real cool of ya! https://www.twitch.tv/vomitwizard

 
 
 

The "death" mechanic in Outward is brilliant. There are so many smart things happening in the game that it completely makes up for any of the roughness the game has. It's amazing such a small team has managed to make a refreshing open world experience.

 
 
 

Double post while shitting. Musta been impatient and hit Post twice. Sorry, folks!

 
 
 

Outward is a fucking brilliant game. I really hope these guys sell a ton of copies and they get a bigger budget for their next open world project. What a breath of fresh air in very predictable world of open world games. So impressed by such a small team.

 
 
 

Just getting into Vagrant Story and man it could really use a remake. What a beautiful, awesome game even in its blocky, jaggy, messy, wobbling-texture, early 3D game form.

 
 
 

Hey, that first PlayStation State of Play thing starts at 2pm today! Time to be disappointed?

 
 
 

That feeling when you realize King of the Hill is on Hulu. Gonna be a good weekend full of games and hearing about how "That boy ain't right".


 
 
 

I finally figured out how to enjoy FFXII's combat. I read somewhere to think of it like Dragon Age Origins's combat and it blew my mind. I loved DA Origins and the combat worked really well. FFXII's combat is pretty much that mixed with classic FF combat.

 
 
 

Trying to go back and get through Horizon Zero Dawn and the combat is just bad. Everything else is pretty alright in this game but when it comes to having to fight the human enemies and act quick, it just falls apart and feels so damn clunky.

 
 
 

I think Bill Hader would have been a much better Freddie Mercury. Rami Malek looked like a Muppet rendition of Freddie. I have made you an artist's rendition of the Bill Hader Freddie. Discuss.


 
 
 

After playing a few hours of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, I can safely say this is the best game in the series to me. Not quite as much blatant murder as RotTR and the story is tighter, as well as the gameplay and tomb puzzles. Feels like less busywork too.

 
 
 

Was browsing PSN today and found out that the first season of the Devil May Cry anime is free in the video section. Must be to celebrate the launch of DMC5 or something. Either way, free is a good price for a full season of a show.

 
 
 

Man... when did the Nier OST come to FFXV? I just fired it up to check it out on my new 4K HDR TV and there it is in the music player. Such a damn good soundtrack! Edit: It's only two songs, but they did happen to add a lot of other Square Enix music.

 
 
 

I totally forgot this Granblue Fantasy game was in the works. I hope it gets a US release. This looks like the perfect action JRPG to me. It's also super rad that Nobuo Uematsu did the music for it. Just got excited all over again haha.



 
 
 

I was just thinking... what if Bluepoint's tech is used for backwards compatibility for PS1/PS2/PS3 games on the next gen PlayStation? This video is super interesting and kind of seems like it would be very possible. I can't wait to see next gen unfold!



 
 
 

Lemme tell ya... Dirt 4 was a great $12 spent on PSN. I'm definitely enjoying the arcade feel over the simulation handling of Dirt Rally. I just wanna have fun and rip ass down a dirt road, I don't want to be angry every time I hit the gas too hard.

 
 
 

I should be sleeping but I am farding instead.

About Steel Squirrelone of us since 7:45 PM on 09.07.2007

I've been around for a little while. I have stuff and things to say, but I don't always necessarily say them unless I feel like it's necessary.

I deleted all of my old blog posts quite a while ago in some kind of purge after feeling like I wanted a clean slate to start from.

I enjoy the video games and I enjoy discussing them. Sometimes I might seem like an asshole, but I'm really not. I'm pretty okay.

You're a good person. Don't let the discussing of video games make you a bad one.
