I was correct. The combat in Star Ocean 5 is nowhere near as annoying as in 3 or 4. Same with the crafting. The plot has yet to prove itself, but the game already has me in a good mood. Y'all need to play worse JRPGs.


It's amazing what ICO manages to do with so little. The platforming isn't far from Uncharted, but the addition of atmosphere, actual puzzles and somewhat quick combat sections does the game wonders.


I didn't believe this for a second, but still, fuck you for even trying to equate a Hip Hop band with the same name to the one and only Dio, Google. Also, it's kinda creepy that they look over my song collection and give me notifications based on it.


Instead of starting Star Ocean 5 like a good little gamer, I instead went back to Soul Blazer and ICO.


The HFC Segathon has begun and it's time to donate to Child's Play so HFC plays more games! Today's games are either Bayonetta 1 or 2 and Streets of Rage 2. Links in the comments.


Traveller In Playtime – Nioh

Nioh is an action RPG made by Team Ninja and published by Koei Tecmo in 2017 for PS4 and later on PC in the same year. It's a retelling of the historical tale of William Adams who became an advisor to the Shogun during the Sengoku Jida...


I think I've figured out the major reason why Chrono Trigger is so fun. Compared to other JRPGs, it really goes for quality over quantity. Maybe the whole genre would be better if the expected game length only was 30 hours or so.


Good part of not being lazy: I get coding done. Bad part of not being lazy: It's so engrossing that I work for hours until hunger gets me in its grip.


A PSA for non-Octopath people: Shining Resonance Refrain is out now for Switch/PS4/PC. It looks like an off-brand Tales of game, but the musical theming seems fun. Has anyone here dug into it yet?


Star Ocean 3 completed, at long last! Now I only need to beat SO5 before I can write the whole series off as mediocre with some fun ideas. Time to go back to Chrono Trigger, I need a palette cleanser.


I have made a terrible discovery. One of the battle themes in Star Ocean 3 includes a rap sample from the Space Jam theme! AND ANOTHER SAMPLE FROM THIS SONG GOT REMIXED INTO THE IWATODAI DORM THEME IN PERSONA 3. WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK????


Disc 1 of Star Ocean 3 done. But that means I have a whole disc left.


All right, half of the year's 52 reviews written! Soon I'll be able to match Chris Carter's output of 8946 reviews per year.


The backlog is slowly growing, and it's certainly not showing any SIGNS THAT IT'S SLOWING AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...


Holy crap, Kuze's theme is gold. They really blew it out of the park with the lieutenants in Yakuza 0. Thanks for not being trash for once, Youtube suggestions.


Wisdom of the day: Don't try to fight bonus bosses while you're tired and underleveled. It won't end well. #CatGirlFriday


I donated blood and beat all of Nioh.


The theme of the sale was Immersive Sims it seems. With Mankind Divided and Dishonored 2 on the way, I think I have all the noteworthy ones now. Such a fun genre for an item hoarder. Here's hoping the System Shock remake comes through.


I pancaked Lady Maria (and her bollocks instakill grab) with the spirit of an electrical bear. I'm the bestest Irish samurai. It was basically the reverse of this:


Oh hey, my backlog of scheduled reviews has run dry. Guess I have to stop playing Nioh and actually write again.


Summer is nice, but damn if the sun (that almost never goes down up here!) and the non-distinction between days sorta drives me crazy. Not as bad as school mind you, but still bad.


Traveller In Playtime – The Darkness

The Darkness is a first-person shooter developed by Starbreeze Studios and published by 2K Games in 2007 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It's an adaptation of the comic of the same name, starring the hitman Jackie Estacado who awakens to his...


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
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.
