I finally finished my third book by Yahtzee, Will Save the Galaxy For Food. It's about as delightful and funny as the rest of his output. This one in particular veers a bit into Douglas Adams territory with some sprinkles of Flash Gordon.


 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight is a metroidvania developed and published by Team Cherry on PC in 2017 and on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One in 2018. It follows the journey of a nameless knight as they explore the ruined bug kingdom of Hallownest and meet oth...

 
 
 
 

So, if I did everything right, I'm done with all the work I need for my degree now. I feel so relieved.


 
 
 

YOU CAN'T JUST MAKE THE NORMALLY HYPE 12TH EPISODE INTO THE 8TH EPISODE LIKE THIS AND THEN TELL US THAT YOU'RE GONNA BUILD THE HYPE FOR 5 MORE EPISODES! I KNOW IT'S THE FINAL SEASON, BUT AT LEAST PRETEND TO BE A SENSIBLE ANIME! #SymphogearSunday


 
 
 

You try to be good to your body and eat lentils, only for them to biocurse you with non-stop farts. It just isn't fair.

 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime - The Evil Within 2

The Evil Within 2 is a survival horror game developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017. While trying to drink away the memories of Evil Within 1 (I know the feeling, pal), ex-police officer S...

 
 
 
 

I'm still amazed this game exists at all, but I'm sad to see it looking so...mobile. I would much rather see something building on what was done with 2.



 
 
 

FUCK YEAH, NOW WE'RE TALKING! I HAVEN'T BEEN SMITTEN BY SOMETHING THIS AWESOME SINCE DMCV'S ENDING! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY WENT THIS FAR! XV HAS OFFICIALLY GONE OFF THE RAILS AND IS GOING TO SPACE AT MACH 8! #SymphogearSunday


 
 
 

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!

 
 


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.
