I recieved a tax rebate so I thought I'd get some videogames :)


 
 
 

Man I love Ranking of King's theme tune! I think this band is actually pretty rad too :)



 
 
 

Imagine a game based on The Berlin Wall...


 
 
 

Time to see what all the fuss is about ;)


 
 
 

Here it is - finally finished my Etrian Odyssey collection this year. I got EOV for not too ridiculous a price and managed to pick up this figure for £6 :) EO merchandise is pretty sparse here in the UK - I also managed to get an art book for IV :D


 
 
 

I'm about 20 hours into Shin Megami Tensei V and I'm enjoying it so far. It reminds me a bit of Ys VIII weirdly (which I also played this year). It feels friendlier than other SMT games and I love seeing the demons chilling in situ!

 
 
 

What Makes a Good First Person Dungeon Crawler

One of my favourite genres is the First Person Dungeon Crawler*. This, of course, is a sub-category of the RPG genre; a sub-sub-category even, considering that I’m splitting hairs by prefacing the Dungeon Crawler genre with Firs...

 
 
 
 

I've put EO2 on hold while I enjoy the Switch I bought myself for Xmas ;) I've been playing Katamari (which is great) and about 10hrs into Ys VIII, which is fantastic!! It's extremely addictive and exactly the kind of game I need right now! :)


 
 
 

I've been allotted a shelf to put some of my videogame related stuff :) It's not enough to put out my entire collection of games so I've chosen a few of my favourite/most memorable games to put on display :) Hope the picture comes out big enough.


 
 
 

I recently read 2 books by Rosemary Sutcliff about Roman Legionaries in Celtic Britain - they're great if a little conservative. I remembered that Spiderwed Soft made a Roman RPG back in the day, so I booted it up today. It's now in line after EO2 ;)


 
 
 

Finally bought a Switch! I went for a Lite (GC colour) as we don't have space for more consoles and my kid will literally pull it off the TV. Games I've got so far: Kowloon High School Chronicle, SMTV, Divinity OS 2, and Castlevania Collection ;)

My candidate for the most 'Why the fuck is it a rogue-like game' goes to Pendragon. It looks beautiful, it's got great writing, but its all about story, so it feels really disappoitning to start again every time you die :(


 
 
 

Played this boardgame called Roll Player over the weekend, all about rolling a character for an RPG. It was great fun but made me really want to play Baldur's Gate :)


 
 
 

Loving the autumnal level in EO2 :)


 
 
 

I just want to make it known that Dark Scavenger, a weird af indie RPG/Adventure game from 2014, is availale for 39p on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/293880/Dark%20/ https://store.steampowered.com/


 
 
 

Just finished reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons (at about 5am while my son was still asleep). I'm not that big into SciFi novels but I LOVED this one. V weird and fun and I love the fictional universe it builds - vvvv plausible imho :) Any recommendations?


 
 
 

I'm quite excited for Undernauts, not that I'll have time to play another huge dungeon crawler (and I'm sure it'll be both huge and slow), but the box art is absolutely great! It's just a crazy collage of cool looking art lol


 
 
 

Anyone ever bought a game before they got the console? I just got this weird dungeon crawler for Switch - also managed to preorder SMT V. Not sure whether to buy a Lite or save for a full TV Switch (the price difference is quite bit????).

Ive never contributed laods to Dtoid, but I love to see what everyone's up to and I enjoy sharing when I can. Been busy with baby and moving house so I've had little opporutnity to sadly. Here's 1 baby photo. Promise that's the only one :)


 
 
 

Found these Hugo box files on the street the other day. I had a PS1 game with him in and absolutely hated it!! haha These are definitely going on my desk :)


 
 
 

I've never really posted personal stuff on here before, but I just want to say how much Etrian Odyssey has helped me through a very stressful time with work recently. I find the game strangely healing sounds ridiculous but there it is :)


 
 
 

Patrick Stewart explaining to Julie Walters why Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is such a fantastic game :) :) :)


 
 
 

Found this out via the HG101 podcast but the Playism store is closing its doors which means the only way to "purchase" Demon King Chronicle will be gone on 24th March. Pretty obscure but it's a fun game if you like scruffy rpg maker jrpgs :)
