I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.
Puppets again, home invasions, and HP Lovecraft
As a companion piece to my recent review...
Filmmaking, from what I've read, is a strange process. People in suits pitch ideas that they think people who maybe don't wear suits will pay money to watch. This leads to lots of writing, folks doing things in front of cameras, computer work, and then a theatrical release. Myriad pictures, though, don't make it past the "man pitching an idea" phase and end up either a memory in the mind of some screenwriter or a rejected script treatment with accompanying concept artwork.
I hate PVP, but I love my new Ring of Fog!
The life of a games critic is a cold one. Now and then we have to depart from those we love to spend time with those we utterly cannot stand. I recently put Dark Souls on the shelf so I could
tarnish every memory I have of Godzilla by playing one of the worst games attached to the franchise play Godzilla on PS4. I mean, seriously. It makes the Game Boy Godzilla look like a masterpiece. In only a couple of sessions, it went from mediocre to complete garbage. I will say, though, that the Commodore 64 Big G game is worse, but that's not saying much...
Before my temporary sign off, I hammered out a bit more progress. Previously, I was upgrading my junk and getting ready to face the boss of Anor Londo, but then I decided to take detour instead...
I've been avoiding overtime at work lately because I want to finish some reviews/blog posts. I'm hoping to have:
-Godzilla review (PS4)
-An accompanying Godzilla-themed blog
-Jurassic World review
-Fruit Ninja review
-Recent horror viewings
Game progress blog
Avengers: Age of Ultron review
-Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light review
I have my work cut out for me. The list was actually much longer before, as it included the reviews that went live recently (Cast of the Seven Godsends, Odallus, Wizorb, Mad Max: Fury Road, etc.).
And it only set me back $60!
I have, for as long as I can remember, loved Godzilla and other kaiju movies. I blame TBS and their constant showings of King Kong vs. Godzilla in the early '80s for this. As you probably know, there's a new Godzilla game out which I will be reviewing here soon. I haven't read much of the details, as I want to form my own opinion on the matter, but the critical consensus has been grim. Low to mid rule, along with maybe one or two above-average reviews.
On top of all of that, I'm hopelessly addicted Dark Souls. So basically I have to put aside a gaming I'm freakin' loving to see one of my favorite licenses squandered. I'm trading good times for heartbreak.
Cynophobes and ornithophobes need not click
I recently discovered DreamDeeply, an online app that allegedly shows the dreams computers have. Obviously, I take such claims with a pinch of salt, but I did find that submitting some pictures to this thing can be quite amusing. A normal picture becomes a mess of dog faces, hidden birds, surreal buildings, eyes, and random human bodies. For instance:
Three more dead bosses + Odallus rocks
It's been a while since I blogged about games I'm playing (i.e. mostly Dark Souls). Before jumping into the one game I've mainly been work on the last month or so, I thought I'd mention some games I've been playing for review purposes.
Odallus: The Dark Call (PC)- I'm almost done with the game. I have one more stage to go, with four secrets in it, before challenging the final level. Thus far, I've received all of the power ups and upgrades and only have a couple more to find. My verdict: it's a great game and a worthy faux-retro follow-up to Oniken.
