My god, I think I've cracked the case on Wez's true identity. We've been fooled for so long. It seems so obvious in retrospect. How did I miss this?


 
 
 

You may have mixed feelings about Mr. Wes Tacos, but remember that he gave us the perfect excuse to fill yet another day with lazy image posts. Just like John Wayne would have done. #WesLovesBunnyGirlsWednesday


 
 
 

I'm inching ever closer to completing Zwei 1. How many Falcom games does that leave me? Gotta buy Ys 8 and Tokyo Xanadu. I also have Ys Seven. Can't forget the PSP Legend of Heroes either. There's also some Brandish games I need to check out.


 
 
 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime - Slain!: Back from Hell

Slain!: Back From Hell is a 2D platformer released by Digerati Distribution in 2016 for the PS4, PC and in 2017 for the Switch. Set in a world so metal half the walls are adorned with skulls, you're tasked with slaying the evil overlor...

 
 
 
 

After enduring a near-critical moment of running to the bathroom thanks to some vengeful salami, I think I've come closer to understanding Dere's love of toilets. Pictured: My poop trying to best me.


 
 
 

Welp, might as well ride this gravytrain for what it's worth. Time to teach you something about the last time we went to war. It sorta went ok. Extra History has a great series on it if you're curious. #SwedenToid




 
 
 

Zwei 2 really is the quintessential Falcom game. It's bright, full of friendship, food, wacky stuff and even had a plot twist that got me. Not to mention the giant demon you fight at the end of all their games. The plot was really sweet too!


 
 
 

Don't be afraid kitty, Chris doesn't bite. I'll put some lewd "extras" in the comments. #CatGirlFriday


 
 
 

How fitting that my pal gave me a fancy import on the day I posted a blog about putting a dent in my backlog. Is this even out physically in the west?


 
 
 

My Experiences With The Playstation 3

I recently cleared my PS3 backlog (all 57 games!) and barring the addition of a few straggler titles, it'll probably remain as such. It's been bumpy ride these last 10 years for the poor device and I thought it'd be fun to recount my m...

 
 
 
 
 

PSA: Zwei: The Arges Adventure is out and you can have cute animals as pets. I also hear it has gorgeous artwork, but who cares? There's a kitty! And a doggo! There should also be a launch discount soon.




 
 
 

*David Attenborough Voice*: And here we see two distinct species of adbot vying for the attention of your everyday Dtoider. Though often ridiculed, they are malicious to the core. They seek to increase its creator's SEO or to fool people into their site.


 
 
 

I got to the final boss of Drakengard 3. Great shitting hell, I was not prepared. Not even close. Tried for like 3 hours. I believe Taro didn't actally want anyone to beat this. So I nuked it from my backlog and now I'm finally done with my PS3 games!




 
 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – SSX 3

SSX 3 is a snowboarding game released by EA in 2003 for the Xbox, Gamecube, PS2 and Game Boy Advance. There was also a Gizmondo release in 2005 for some reason. It forsakes the disjointed levels of the previous games and instead lets t...

 
 
 
 

Path A of Drakengard 3 complete. Ended about as well as I guessed and I feel like I was only given a small piece of the story. I'm miffed that there's $30 worth of DLC. The game really needs a rerelease on current hardware with it bundled.


 
 
 
 

Drakengard 3 first impressions: It really runs like ass, the combat has a bit of jank to it, but is fun and the outlandish crassness of the whole thing amuses me greatly. It's interesting that I find something so hateful funny.


 
 
 

Yo, Tacomancer. I heard you were born into this world ages ago on this day. So I"persuaded" some femfolk to wish you a decent day and whatnot. What fitting fate that it would be today. #WesLovesBunnyGirlsWednesday


 
 
 

Hehe, I beat Xanadu Next today as well! Not as obtuse as I feared. It's like an unholy mix of Ys, Dark Souls, King's Field, Zelda and Diablo. It's kinda my jam. The shortcuts and magic was awesome, while the crashes and deleveling mages were not.


 
 
 

CS2 done at last! I really can't choose properly between Trails games, but this one was nice. The battles have some decent complexity finally, exploration is actually a thing and Laura has kept her title as best girl. Ending wasn't exhausting either.


 
 
 

The hour is early and I'm taking the day off. Before me lies 3 unfinished Falcom games, loads of videos, a review that needs to be written, Symphogear fanart to save and some other things. I SHALL PARTAKE.


 
 


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
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.
