You spend ONE Summer coding almost glued to a screen and suddenly a beard makes itself known. Truly, a mystery for the ages.


 
 
 

Ys games are so good you guys. Play them. Play them all.


 
 

After fixing up my grandma's TV channels, I have come to the conclusion that TV is a horrendous medium full of way too many casino commercials. How is it still going? The internet is a thing, people! #CatGirlFriday


 
 

And the second worst bad ending in a video game goes to Persona 5! Haunting Ground still hogs the top spot, for featuring multiple levels of horribleness ill fit for any eye!


 
 
 

The promised days of darkness have arrived. And through their malevolent influence, I am once again given the power to sleep. And Autumn isn't far off...


 
 

Thanks for all birthday wishes! Here's my loot list: A pillow, a shirt, a chessboard, wireless headphones, sunscreen, deoderant, a Bloodborne hunter figure, a shopping trip with mom, Chantelise, Ys: Memories of Celceta and Shining Resonance Refrain.


 
 

It's my birthday as well. I'm 23 now and I hear this is as good as life gets. I'm gonna play Bloodborne with a friend.


 
 
 
 

must sleep, or the cat will beat me

 
 

The Tetris effect is interesting. Last time I was afflicted, I got an eye for shipping containers thanks to MGSV. Now thanks to Persona 5, I've put focus on my scheduling a bit more. Anyone here got some fun Tetris Effect stories?

 
 

It's been forever since I wrote something fueled by salty rage. Monday is gonna be fun.


 
 

Do you think a shelf falling apart and raining Donald Duck comics on your head is a sign from above that you should clean? Asking for a friend.


 
 

Turns out that clearing the first dungeon in a single day in Persona 5 is about as tedious and terrible as it was in Persona 4. Worse than anything Nocturne threw at me frankly. But it's either this, or NG+. And I ain't going through that intro again.


 
 

All right, I'm starting Persona 5. Let's see if this bastard is really 110 hours, or if y'all are just slowpokes.


 
 

Wow, Titanfall 2 offers options I didn't even know existed.


 
 

Ok, that's the Star Ocean series done. Question is, how many JRPG series do I have left?


 
 
 

I was correct. The combat in Star Ocean 5 is nowhere near as annoying as in 3 or 4. Same with the crafting. The plot has yet to prove itself, but the game already has me in a good mood. Y'all need to play worse JRPGs.


 
 

It's amazing what ICO manages to do with so little. The platforming isn't far from Uncharted, but the addition of atmosphere, actual puzzles and somewhat quick combat sections does the game wonders.

 
 

I didn't believe this for a second, but still, fuck you for even trying to equate a Hip Hop band with the same name to the one and only Dio, Google. Also, it's kinda creepy that they look over my song collection and give me notifications based on it.


 
 

Instead of starting Star Ocean 5 like a good little gamer, I instead went back to Soul Blazer and ICO.


 
 
 

The HFC Segathon has begun and it's time to donate to Child's Play so HFC plays more games! Today's games are either Bayonetta 1 or 2 and Streets of Rage 2. Links in the comments.

 
 

I think I've figured out the major reason why Chrono Trigger is so fun. Compared to other JRPGs, it really goes for quality over quantity. Maybe the whole genre would be better if the expected game length only was 30 hours or so.


 
 

Good part of not being lazy: I get coding done. Bad part of not being lazy: It's so engrossing that I work for hours until hunger gets me in its grip.


 
 

A PSA for non-Octopath people: Shining Resonance Refrain is out now for Switch/PS4/PC. It looks like an off-brand Tales of game, but the musical theming seems fun. Has anyone here dug into it yet?

 
 

Star Ocean 3 completed, at long last! Now I only need to beat SO5 before I can write the whole series off as mediocre with some fun ideas. Time to go back to Chrono Trigger, I need a palette cleanser.


 
 

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

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.
