After an effective eternity, I've beaten Tales of Phantasia. It has some really rough spots, but it's a solid foundation that the series hasn't deviated from much, from what I gather. Kinda shitty of the game to have the ultimate summon suck though.


My AI teacher was lazy. He recycled questions wholesale from previous exams, making this one a cinch, especially since we only needed 50% to pass. It was down-right fair. I even got out before half-time and caught a decent bus home.


Welp, Halloween is over. Back to the old avatar. Then again, isn't it high time for Christmas avatars? It's less than two months until Christmas Day, you know! It's basically time to decorate the tree and drink as much eggnog as humanly possible.


Happy Halloween, Sir Dan. Congrats on not getting an upscaled port!


The Dark Digital Depths of Despair

You know, video games are pretty fun. Don't know if you know that. Systems to master, weird stories to experience and dropkicks to engage in. All good stuff. But you have to be wary sometimes. Of what, you ask? Not the actual Fear, mi...




I picked up Dex on the Halloween sale on a whim. Turns out it's a fully voiced 2d Cyber Punk RPG that just oozes Shadowrun and Deus Ex. Combat is simple, but there's a surprising amount of detail in other places. At $2, how can you say no?


Tales of Phantasia was starting to drag a bit, but then I got to go to war in the sky on a pegasus. Also, you get to take lunch before backtracking into an old dungeon. I like the cut of your jib, video game. Do keep up.


Ok, it's a bit past 8 in the morning and I have to code all day, with nothing but Initial D music to keep me company. LET'S DO THIS!


Since the translation of the Jojo Part 5 game got completed, I decided to try it. The gameplay is like a boss rush in a rudimentary 3d fighter where you have to scramble to figure out the enemy weakness. The Man in the Mirror fight sucks. Very much.


Traveller In Playtime – Shadows of the Damned

Shadows of the Damned is a horror-themed third-person shooter brought to life by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by EA in 2011 for PS3 and Xbox 360. It's a tale as old as gaming itself, where a man, armed only with his talking gu...


While getting my laptop back, I tried out some demo stations. Switch had Mario Kart, which was fun, the XBONE wanted to update and the PS4 had a Spyro demo. It controls better generally, but the motion blur was absurd. I hope they revise it.


Holy crap, this week was murder. My body just gave up today and gave me a giant headache to enjoy on the way home. And I still have stuff to do during the weekend. I'm gonna need good a dose of God Hand to recover. #CatGirlFriday


I need answers. Next E3 can't come fast enough.


Traveller In Playtime - American Mcgee's Alice

American Mcgee's Alice is a horror action-adventure title developed by Rogue Entertainment and published by EA on PC in 2000. It was also bundled with it's sequel on 360 and PS3 in 2011. The game is a sequel to the original Alice stori...


Somehow, a Sci-Fi Souls-like game with guns released without my knowledge. Fancy that.


And this is what happens when you let the existential dread set in. Don't let it set in. #PandaToid




Traveller In Playtime – Koudelka

Koudelka is a horror JRPG developed by Sacnoth for the Playstation and published by SNK for its Japanese debut in 1999, with a world-wide release by Infogrames soon following in 2000. It stars the titular Koudelka, who is a medium draw...


One the one hand, I managed to install Windows 98 (Including 256 colours!) on a virtual machine and can finally run some of my childhood games I thought lost. On the other hand, it's nighttime and school awaits in the morning. #Priorities


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
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.
