NISA's crappy PC port of Ys 8 has a free trial this weekend. That's useful to see if your computer setup is one of few that actually works with the damn thing.


I've been trying my damndest to save up a buffer of my favorite podcasts, but it just ain't happening. There are just too many things in life made better with a good podcast to listen to. I just can't help myself.


Traveller In Playtime - The Evil Within

The Evil Within is a survival horror game developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014. As gruff detective Sebastian Castellanos, the player gets trapped in a nightmarish reality...


Assault Spy speaks to me in a way I haven't felt since DMCV. What it lacks in budget, it makes up for with spirit. In what other game does your suplex chain automatically into an Izuna Drop? I think this screenshot sums the game up well.


Thanks for all the birthday wishes. This was a more pragmatic birthday, as I got a dentist appointment and money for a bike, but there were still games. I got Finding Paradise and Assault Spy!


So, not only is summer unreasonably warm, it also infects some people with the strange notion that it's the perfect time to go outside and "enjoy the weather" and "do things". I sure hope medical science will find a cure for this terrible malady.


Traveller In Playtime – Resonance of Fate

Resonance Fate (or End of Eternity) is a JRPG developed by tri-Ace and published by Sega for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010. It received a re-release for PC (which I hear has a nasty sound bug) and PS4 as well in 2018. The game's setting...


I have been bamboozled! This wasn't a heart-wrencing episode, this was a heart-pumping episode! This is what I get for trying to understand vague statements in Japanese. But how much more setup can we get before things start to go down? #SymphogearSunday


I prepped to remove a wasp nest from my grandmother's balcony today, but it was for naught. She had been valiently fighting off the wasps for hours on her own with bug spray, so when I arrived, it was just a matter of removing the deserted nest.


XV keeps on rollin'! This episode was great for setting up some stuff for the rest of the season, but what I really loved were the small touches in it that people have been wanting for years to see. #SymphogearSunday


Hey game developers, if you aren't sure about the implementation of your stealth system, please do not strain it by randomly spawning an enemy that loves to ignore hiding places and only has an instant kill attack. Also, play Haunting Ground, you hacks!


Traveller In Playtime – System Shock

System Shock is an immersive sim developed by Looking Glass Technologies and published by Origin Systems for the PC in 1994. The player takes the role of a nameless hacker who gets caught poking around the network of the TriOptimum com...


Everything is fine. Everything is fine. Everything is fine. Everything is fine. Everything is... #SymphogearSunday


Onimusha 2 really is a perfect window into its era. One the one hand, it has decent animation, a bunch of ideas I haven't seen elsewhere and combat that rewards mastery. But it's also janky, obtuse, unfair and incredibly campy. Was fun though.


Why did nobody tell me that Onimusha 2 had this banger of a song hidden in its attract mode?


I went through the whole Steam summer sale without buying anything for myself. Does this mean I win? Have I achieved gaming Nirvana?


Tales of Legendia took an interesting turn.


Traveller In Playtime - Tales of Symphonia

Tales of Symphonia is a JRPG developed and published by Namco for the Gamecube in 2003-2004. It received a Japan-only PS2 port in 2004, a world-wide PS3 port in 2013-2014 and a PC port in 2016. The story follows the Chosen, Colette and...


Torchman's will be damned, Symphogear is back! And with a new season, comes my Symphogear Sundays! I'll be writing down my impressions for every episode and putting them in the comments of Qposts. This first episode just radiated animation money!


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 bitching" series on the Souls-games.

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

At present, I am writing weekly reviews, which is a fun exercise.

I some games/series 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
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 often. I like:

Gonna Be the Twintail
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 despise unfulfilling writing and will do all it takes to make my points.
