Traveller In Playtime – Darksiders

Darksiders is an action-adventure game made by Vigil Games and published by THQ on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2010. 6 years later, THQ Nordic published a remaster developed by Gunfire Games for XONE, PS4 and PC, with a Wii U version follo...

 
 
 
 

I got to test out a Hololens in class. It's cool, but somewhat fiddly. Our teacher also showed that a Kinect uses machine learning when you try to teach it commands. Never thought I'd see one. Kinda assumed they were all recycled into smoke detectors.

 
 
 
 
 

In class today we were shown a really clever way of teaching idiots not to jaywalk in Paris using science!



 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – Spyro: A Hero's Tail

Spyro: A Hero's Tail is a platformer developed by Eurocom and published by Vivendi on the Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube in 2004. In it, the titular dragon sets out alongside his friends to stop the elder dragon Red from taking over the world ...

 
 
 
 

Commercials are crap in general, but radio commercials have to be their lamest incarnation. They're just so loud, cheap, pathetic and you can FEEL them clawing for your attention. If anything, I'm surprised they're still kicking.

 
 
 
 

I've been watching more Castlevania. It's nice.


 
 
 
 
 

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...

 
 
 
 

WHY ISN'T THIS IN THE DELUXE EDITION? GONNA NEED YOU TO FIX THIS GRAVE ERROR ASAP, MODDING COMMUNITY!



 
 
 

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.



 
 


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.
