I found this ages ago and today is the day I post it. Red on white makes for a good combination. Unless you're in the Ace Attorney universe. Then it's a pretty bad idea. #MagicalGirlMonday


 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime - Matterfall

Matterfall is a sidescrolling arcadey platformer released by Housemarque on the PS4 in 2017. It's centered around the destruction (and implied cleanup) of a whole pack of robots gone haywire. Sci-Fi Presentation & Excuse Plot Matt...

 
 
 
 

I just wanna restate my love of Ys Seven a bit. That final boss was metal as hell! I only have 2 Falcom games left now. Then I'm temporarily free! At least until Ys 8 and Memory of Celceta hit PC. Still holding out hope for CS3 within 3 years.

Heel-turn: Kain's Legacy

[I remember playing the hell out of those old PS1 demo discs back in the day, and I must have gone through that one section of Soul Reaver over thirty damn times. I miss those things so much. It's just not the same when you can downloa...

 
 
 

Instead of enduring the Gagharv trilogy, I axed them from my backlog and played Ys Seven instead. It's such a shame that Ys isn't a more renowned series. It's so good you guys, the frenetic bosses with 25 different attacks especially.


 
 
 
 

It took a long time, but I finally found a Falcom game I'm not too keen on. It's part of the Gagharv trilogy of Legend of Heroes. It's extremely standard and only has a speck of charm. Charm is probably one of the most important things in a JRPG.


 
 
 

As if fated by some god with a weird sense of humour, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is on a small sale over at GOG right now. It's the best Sonic game I've played. #WesLovesBunnyGirlsWednesday


 
 
 

Remember to pick the correct words for this most special of holidays. Like these ones, oozing of romance and love.


 
 
 

I finally found the Dark Souls of Monster Hunter games. It's made by From Software and everything!


 
 
 

Fine, I'll play your twisted game. 2 truths, one lie: I've set my hair on fire, I can ride a snowboard and I can code in C++. Doggo unrelated. Bump! 3 is the lie, I can only code in C and maybe a little in C#.


 
 
 

Seeing as the staff have their priorities wrong and reviewed some weeaboo dragon cube game instead of Zwei: The Arges Adventure, I decided to do it myself. Check it out! #MagicalGirlMonday


 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime - Zwei: The Arges Adventure

Zwei: The Arges Adventure is the second release of the second version of the original Zwei, a cute dungeoncrawling action RPG originally released by Falcom on the PC in 2001. It was translated and updated by XSEED for a 2018 release on...

 
 
 
 

I finally beat Dela Mode in Brandish. Never before have I enjoyed such well-constructed assholery. There were crazy traps EVERYWHERE, super hard battles, new gimmicks, difficult puzzles and mind-melting maps. What a great bonus.


 
 
 
 

It has come to my attention that Falcom released a pair of strategy games in English for free like a decade and a half ago. They're named Vantage Master & Lord Monarch. I'll link them down below. And they're so old and simple that they just work!


 
 
 
 

Brandish on the PSP managed to surpass my expectations. I feared awful jank, and found a really solid grid-based dungeoncrawler. It tickles the King's Field partition of my brain in that special way. Should probably have went for the Gagharv games first.


 
 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime - Xanadu Next

Xanadu Next is an action RPG made by Falcom and released in 2005 for the PC and N-Gage. The player plays the part of silent knight looking to find the Dragonslayer sword in order to reclaim his soul and find the secrets of the ancient ...

 
 
 
 

-31 C (-24 F) this morning. Gonna be one of those Mondays.


 
 
 

Yeah, I beat Zwei 1 as well this week! Very cute and somewhat clunky. Really feels like it's 17 years old. The two games make for a really nice little series. Probably gonna go for Brandish or some Legend of Heroes next. I'll get you yet, backlog!


 
 
 

I played through my copy of Matterfall all the way today. It's quite sweet overall, feels like a combination of Outland and Super Stardust. Even at the lengthy final boss, the controls still confused me though. #CatGirlFriday


 
 
 

My dad was cool and used his 3D printer to make me a Spyro figure. Always wanted a Spyro figure. It's no $200 Figma, but it'll do. #ShoutoutToid


 
 
 

My god, I think I've cracked the case on Wez's true identity. We've been fooled for so long. It seems so obvious in retrospect. How did I miss this?


 
 


About Kerrik52one of us since 3:12 AM on 02.28.2016

Greetings, one and all. I'm known as Kerrik52 around these parts and I think I'm pretty swell, for a Swedish dude.

I love all games, except the bad ones. I play games when possible, thinking I'll eventually break into heaven. I'm currently studying computer science.

I have written some blogs here exploring old games by From Software with more to come later. Not to mention my salty bitch series on the Souls-games.

I also have a little Youtube channel bearing my name that mostly contains videos related to my blogs.

I some games I love are:

Dark Souls
God Hand
Resident Evil 4
Tales of Eternia
Kingdom Hearts
Jak & Daxter
King's Field
Devil May Cry
Legacy of Kain
Shadow Hearts
Spyro
Ys
Shin Megami Tensei
Resistance
Patapon
Legend of Heroes
Yakuza
Locoroco
Ape Escape

I have a very low standard for movies, but I have some favorites. These include:

Coraline
Tintin
The Secret Life of Walter Witty
Pooh's Grand Adventure
Scott Pilgrim VS the World

The last TV shows I watched were House, Mythbusters and Fringe.

Anime on the other hand, is something I watch often. I like:

Symphogear
Jojo
Gonna Be the Twintail
Nichijou
WIXOSS
Black Rock Shooter
Nobunagun
Airmaster
Fist of the Northstar

I don't read very much anymore, but I like Asimov and Lovecraft.

Music-wise I'm an apostle of Dio and the German power metal scene. Other favorites include:

Gamma Ray
Iron Savior
Freedom Call
Dreamtale
Axel Rudi Pell
Edguy
Avantasia

Go ahead and share a piece of your world with me and I'll pay back in kind. Don't be deterred if I answer you in a wall of text though. I despise unfulfilling writing and will do all it takes to make my points.
