After waiting like a decade, I've finally started watching Kino's Journey. It feels like the quintessential 00s anime. It's surprisingly brutal, but really serene as well.

 
 
 

I finally hunted down my JRPG white whale. The Tales of series has elluded me for far too long. Now to complete Zestiria and get to the other six. Here's hoping I like one of them more than Eternia.


 
 

Ninja Gaiden 3: RE pounded my face into the ground so hard yesterday that I overslept. It was kinda fun, but holy hell, I was not prepared. I must relearn the ninja way.


 
 
 

*puts on extra large tinfoil hat and awaits E3*

 
 

Welp, I finally made a proper job application. It's for a summer job in elder care. Not my field, but I do have some experience and it's close by, so I can do it. Now to wait for an answer...


 
 
 

PSA: Currently, Abe's Oddyssey is free on Steam and The Flame in the Flood is free on the Humble Store.


 
 

LittleKuriboh voices the pope in Tales of Zestiria! How did I not know this? That's cool!


 
 
 

This isn't my copy of Prisoner of Azkaban for the PS2. This isn't it at all. What are the chances that someone sent me a cursed game?


 
 

My teacher was lazy and recycled a few questions for my hellish math exam, so I managed to finish with time to spare. Currently playing Persona 4 with a friend.


 
 

Y'all better double down on the catgirls. I'm playing Dick Move Capcom: Devil May Cry again. And I swear it's not because I hate myself! #CatGirlFriday


 
 

Ok, kinda running out of cheap PS4 games to buy over here.


 
 

72 hours, and I'll have had my fifth showdown with the math gods. I know you have to earn your grade and freedom, but can't I get a bulk discount? #WesLovesBunnyGirlsWednesday


 
 

Let it be known NISA, that I didn't get this for you. I got it for Falcom and for myself. Consider whatever profits you make fair dues for the second hand copy of Disgaea I bought years ago. Now to enjoy this game in a proper and crashfree fashion.


 
 

Gonna have to call out @GajKnight for talking smack about Tales of Zestiria, in spite of never playing it. It's nice! Simplistic Butt Rock intro and all. But after Enchanted Arms and Star Ocean 4, my perspective might be a bit skewed.

 
 

I'm sure glad that Bamco's store is down, so I can't claim the ONE HALF of the online pass-esque DLC I'm privy to due to my purchase not being at launch month. IT'S A SEALED COPY, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT!?


 
 
 

I'm finally through my stash of iron supplement pills. Now I don't have to poop green!


 
 
 

SSX On Tour is better than I thought. If you can break through the aesthetic, you're treated to some really solid mechanics and levels. Gotta ask why Mario is playable though.

 
 
 

Apropos of nothing, I bought El Shaddai. It looks really cool and I'm surprised it was so easy to get. Something tells me it'll make a more worthile final PS3 game than Drakengard 3.


 
 

It sure pays off to have a friend who runs his own shop. Except for the part where you actually have to pay him for merchandise, but you know what I mean.


 
 

I got my answer from Swery. I wonder if he has purged Spy Fiction from his mind.


 
 

With the defeat of Tokyo Xanadu, I am finally free from the shackles of Falcom! It was a good time, hell their whole library (save for the Gagharv trilogy) is awesome. Now I can play something else. (At least until I get my hands on Ys 8 & Ys MoC.)


 
 
 

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.
