I replayed Devil May Cry today. And boy oh boy, is the music ace. I also tried using the Nightmare Beta properly and it totally shredded Griffon. DMC5 better be at E3 this year. The stars are aligned and I need it badly.

 
 
 

I also have the Sega coupons to give out. These include Dawn of War 2: Retribution, Endless Legend, Endless Space Collection, Bayonetta and Total War: Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai. Ask and ye shall recieve.


 
 

I found this ages ago and today is the day I post it. Red on white makes for a good combination. Unless you're in the Ace Attorney universe. Then it's a pretty bad idea. #MagicalGirlMonday


 
 

I just wanna restate my love of Ys Seven a bit. That final boss was metal as hell! I only have 2 Falcom games left now. Then I'm temporarily free! At least until Ys 8 and Memory of Celceta hit PC. Still holding out hope for CS3 within 3 years.


 
 

Instead of enduring the Gagharv trilogy, I axed them from my backlog and played Ys Seven instead. It's such a shame that Ys isn't a more renowned series. It's so good you guys, the frenetic bosses with 25 different attacks especially.


 
 
 

It took a long time, but I finally found a Falcom game I'm not too keen on. It's part of the Gagharv trilogy of Legend of Heroes. It's extremely standard and only has a speck of charm. Charm is probably one of the most important things in a JRPG.


 
 

As if fated by some god with a weird sense of humour, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is on a small sale over at GOG right now. It's the best Sonic game I've played. #WesLovesBunnyGirlsWednesday


 
 

Remember to pick the correct words for this most special of holidays. Like these ones, oozing of romance and love.


 
 

I finally found the Dark Souls of Monster Hunter games. It's made by From Software and everything!


 
 

Fine, I'll play your twisted game. 2 truths, one lie: I've set my hair on fire, I can ride a snowboard and I can code in C++. Doggo unrelated. Bump! 3 is the lie, I can only code in C and maybe a little in C#.


 
 

Seeing as the staff have their priorities wrong and reviewed some weeaboo dragon cube game instead of Zwei: The Arges Adventure, I decided to do it myself. Check it out! #MagicalGirlMonday


 
 

I finally beat Dela Mode in Brandish. Never before have I enjoyed such well-constructed assholery. There were crazy traps EVERYWHERE, super hard battles, new gimmicks, difficult puzzles and mind-melting maps. What a great bonus.


 
 
 

It has come to my attention that Falcom released a pair of strategy games in English for free like a decade and a half ago. They're named Vantage Master & Lord Monarch. I'll link them down below. And they're so old and simple that they just work!


 
 
 

Brandish on the PSP managed to surpass my expectations. I feared awful jank, and found a really solid grid-based dungeoncrawler. It tickles the King's Field partition of my brain in that special way. Should probably have went for the Gagharv games first.


 
 
 

-31 C (-24 F) this morning. Gonna be one of those Mondays.


 
 

Yeah, I beat Zwei 1 as well this week! Very cute and somewhat clunky. Really feels like it's 17 years old. The two games make for a really nice little series. Probably gonna go for Brandish or some Legend of Heroes next. I'll get you yet, backlog!


 
 

I played through my copy of Matterfall all the way today. It's quite sweet overall, feels like a combination of Outland and Super Stardust. Even at the lengthy final boss, the controls still confused me though. #CatGirlFriday


 
 

My dad was cool and used his 3D printer to make me a Spyro figure. Always wanted a Spyro figure. It's no $200 Figma, but it'll do. #ShoutoutToid


 
 

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.


 
 
 
 

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


 
 

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.
