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!


 
 
 

I set out to get 112%, but it just ain't happening. I can't do the fourth boss rush, nor can I beat the Path of Pain. Beat this guy though. But fucking hell, if this game wasn't amazing. Ate up my whole week. Time to uninstall and get my life back.


 
 
 

Help, I'm playing Hollow Knight and the damn thing won't let me stop. The last three days are just a blur of sleepless nights and bugs.

 
 
 

As a kindness to my Steam backlog, I finally beat Deadcore, which is an FPS puzzle platformer I got for cheap from a friend when I built my computer back in 2015. Was a pretty fun game, even for someone as unfamiliar with K+M gaming as me.


 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – Zone of the Enders

Zone of the Enders is a mecha action game developed and published by Konami in 2001 for the PS2, with a HD port coming later for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. The game revolves around a young boy named Leo living on the space colony An...

 
 
 
 

I finally got a chance to try the Dark Souls cardgame! Aside from some silly stuff with the names of things, its quite excellent. Really tense, without much reliance on random chance. Of course, when it's tough, it's really tough. We won though!


 
 
 

Here's my wisdom of the day: Zone of the Enders 2 is harder than I remembered and Tales of Legendia is weird as hell.

 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – Crash Twinsanity

Crash Twinsanity is a 3D platformer developed by Traveler's Tales and published by Vivendi Universal Games in 2004 on PS2 and Xbox. Following 3 years after the ending of Wrath of Cortex, the titular mad scientist tries to get his reven...

 
 
 
 

After a six month hiatus, my reviews are back! I've been playing loads of games in that time, most of which will be getting the review treatment. First up is Tales of Eternia! Next up? Who knows!

 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – Tales of Eternia

Tales of Eternia (also known as Tales of Destiny II) is a JRPG developed internally by Namco and published by them in 2000 for the Playstation. It later received a PSP port that was published by Ubisoft in Europe in 2006. The game foll...

 
 
 
 

There has been a distinct lack of Community Blogs on Mondays for the last six months. Someone should work to fix that.


 
 
 

I finally went back to System Shock. While it is clunky as hell, I can't deny that it's really immersive and fun. Current status:


 
 
 

I just took the time to blast through this old children's adventure game. Shit was so spoopy I almost died. Anyone here familiar?


 
 
 

For looking like a rip-off of Ty, Kao the Kangaroo 2 features a surprising amount of decent platforming. But besides that, it's extremely lackluster. It's clear to me that the genre has room for more games when even this has it's interesting ideas.


 
 
 

To celebrate the end of school, I decided to get the rest of the Onimusha games coupled with Dad of Boi. I swear that's the last of the PS2 games I'm interested in. I look forward to fighting the Valkyries in GoW.


 
 
 

It's so much easier to do stuff when you don't have school breathing down your neck!


 
 
 

After what must have been 14 hours of writing since last sleep I finished my research paper. I'm just gonna lie down and play God of War 2 until breakfast rolls around.


 
 
 

New Symphogear season airing next month!


 
 


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
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.
