After 4-5 years of service, I finally replaced my Nexus 5 for a Motorola G6. The thing's spiffy, so now my photos aren't garbage anymore! Here's part of my Black Friday haul. And Crash Twinsanity.


 
 
 

Turns out Neo Sweden is a thing in G Gundam. It's a sailor scout with Zero hair that goes into a berserk mode and is piloted by someone named Allenby Beardsly. Anime was a mistake. Gundam, doubly so.

I also beat Tales of Destiny today! It's good enough, but I can see why people rarely bring it up. It's missing something to make it memorable. And I'm not talking about the cut sketches. Onwards, to the next one!

 
 
 

I beat Automata. Wasn't as affecting as I'd hoped, but it has its moments. It certainly has some nice layers to it. A shame the combat is so braindead. Pretty sure Drakengard 3 had better combos. But hey, at least the performance wasn't horrific.

 
 
 

I'm halfway through branch B in Automata. It's so nice to to play a good Yoko Taro game. It still has some bullshit, but it's not offensive at least. Too bad that he's sort of predictable by now, much like Miyazaki in Dark Souls 3. No spoilers, please.

It's been a busy year in the world of gaming. Night in the Woods made people sad, Shadow of the Colossus came out again, Metal Gear Survive was a thing, Valkyria Chronicles 2: For Realsies This Time came out, Ys 8 shat itself on PC, Be...

 
 
 
 

This year was also a game-filled Christmas! I got the Asterix remaster, VA-11 Hall-A, Vodoo Vince, Hollow Knight and a preorder for Kingdom Hearts 3. Thanks everyone, make sure not to stuff yourselves to death with Christmas food!

After a mere month, my laptop relapsed and requires another trip to the repair shop. Something tells me the right hinge is cursed. If this happens again, I'm sure they'll just pay me what it's worth and put the poor thing down.

It's amazing how efficiently you can shop with a full stomach. It's like immunity to a status effect! I could've gotten candy at like 60% off but the thought off doing so seemed ridiculous without sugar cravings whispering in my ear.

 
 
 

I got a spot at a tech company for my graduation job. That's basically a 2-month interview in case they're hiring during next spring. I'll probably earn a letter of recommendation at the very least.

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.
