I picked up the DS2 design works and some BB comics. Unlike the trashfire that are the Dark Souls comics, I've heard good things about the BB ones. I hope Elden Ring looks as good as the awesome concept art From Software artists produce. Shit's gorgeous.


All right people, have your fun.


Traveller In Playtime - Dishonored

Dishonored is an immersive sim developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. It later received ports on PS4 and Xbox One in 2015. Following a trip to a neighbouring country, the Royal ...


Having done shopping for my grandma for years now, I am so sick of buying carbonated water and so much fruit and bread that it rots in the fridge. It's such a waste on every level. Really makes me want to move out so I can keep a clean fridge for myself.


I wanna play more of Tales of Innocence. The game seems good, but Iria scares me. Also, whoopee 1000 posts.


Traveller In Playtime - Touhou Luna Nights

Touhou Luna Nights is a metroidvania developed by Vaka Game Magazine and Team Ladybug and published by Why so serious? and PLAYISM in 2019 on PC. After constructing a parallel version of Gensokyo as a playground, the vampire Remilia se...


As a break from my neverending JRPG binge, I decided to watch Golden Boy. As far as sex comedies go, it was pretty refreshing. Unlike modern shows of this ilk, it's surprisingly mature in both its theming and just how saucy it gets. I recommend it!


I don't wanna play Tales of the Tempest anymore. The game is bad and Rubia scares me.


Traveller In Playtime 2019 Summary

Here we are, at the end of my third year doing reviews with a decent amount of stuff to show for it, in spite of the complications I ran into this year. After last year's huge efforts that resulted in 52 reviews, I decided to cut back ...


A friend of mine showed up to deliver belated birthday and Christmas gifts. While I only sorta like Evil Twin, I felt I had to get a physical copy for the manual. Manuals usually contain extra story tidbits and this one is no different. It's pretty neat!


After a haphazard nostalgia trip, I was reminded that U.B.O.S was a thing. Going by the first episode and my memories, it seems to be a decent enough show. But good lord did they rip off Harry Potter super hard!


I finished my game of the year blog. I bet you can't guess what won.


Kerrik52's Game of the Year 2019 - Devil May Cry V

It's been one hell of a gaming year compared to 2018, especially for me, since I actually bought some new games this year! I've made it a bit of a personal policy as of late to wait a year before buying a game, since by the time I get ...


Merry Christmas, Destructoid! Stay weird!


Traveller In Playtime – Parasite Eve II

Parasite Eve II is an action RPG with survival horror influences developed by Square and published by Square and Square EA on the Playstation in 1999-2000. Following the New York incident in the first game, Aya Brea has joined the FBI'...


Pros of suffering a temporary power outage: The router reset and returned my internet speeds to acceptable levels. Cons: I lost about 30 minutes of progress in Tales of Graces. Feels like a fair trade all things considered.


I bring you the song of my people.


In lieu of those fancy Switch summaries I'll instead gloat over the fact that I've beaten 6 Tales of games this year! Might hit 7 if I hurry. Only 4 (or maybe 6) games to go before I can tell you all which are the best and the worst!


Traveller In Playtime - Assault Spy

Assault Spy is a character action game developed by Wazen and published by NISA on the PC in 2018. Self-proclaimed master corporate spy Asaru gets assigned the mission of stealing the company secrets of the esteemed security company Ne...


I'm conditioned to think that the PS4 only gets a handful of games per year. But it gets a lot of indie games too. Like this rad-looking juiced up PS1 action RPG Final Fantasy Castlevania-esque mess! I feel kind of compelled to try it.


RIP in peace, Gamestop. You really should have tried to sell me weeb PS4 games for less than your obscene prices. Still, thanks for the metric fuckton of PS2, PSP and PS3 games you provided me with. I'll treasure them always and never trade them in.


For once, an ad told me about something interesting. I know one of the devs were sad about being restricted to digital, so this is great news! I'm tempted to double dip just to support the games and free more of my game collection from PSN.


Traveller In Playtime - Shining Resonance Refrain

Shining Resonance Refrain is a rerelease of the action RPG Shining Resonance originally developed by Media. Vision and published by Sega on the PS3 in 2014. This new version, handled by O-Two Inc. features new content and was also publ...


So, Tales of Vesperia had Lunar Phase and style switching and now I see that Tales of Graces has Rainstorm, charged fist attacks and an actual parry move. Bless you, DMC-fan over at Bandai Namco, you're doing the world a service.


Traveller In Playtime – Whiplash

Whiplash is a 3D platformer developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Eidos Interactive for the PS2 and Xbox in 2003-2004. It was also made available on PS3 as a PS2 classic. In the animal testing facility of the mega corporation ...


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'm Swedish dude with a bachelor's degree in computer science.

I play a lot of games, even the bad ones if they have something interesting to offer. I then write about them on this site for you all to read. I've written stuff about about a lot of genres, but if you need recommendations, I suggest my From Software Retrospective and my "Let's Bitch" series about the Souls-games. At present, I am writing weekly reviews, which is a fun exercise.

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

I'm mostly a character action game and JRPG player, but I try to keep my gaming diet varied. Here are some games/series I love:

Souls Games
God Hand
Resident Evil 4
Tales of
Ratchet & Clank
King's Field
Devil May Cry
Legacy of Kain
Spyro the Dragon
Shin Megami Tensei
Legend of Heroes
Ape Escape

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

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 a decent amount of. I like:

Black Rock Shooter
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
Axel Rudi Pell

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 just can't help it sometimes.
