Recent horror viewings: First October post of 2015
October 09, 2015

It's October. I like horror movies. I think you see where I'm going with this...



ZOMBI 2 (1979)

Tisa Farrow (Mia's sister) searches the Caribbean for her father with the help of Ian McCulloch and a couple of guides. What they discover is an alcoholic scientist creating zombies with voodoo in the name of scientific research. Meanwhile, Olga Karlatos gets a wooden splinter in her eye and a zombie fights a tiger shark.

I disappeared from HG briefly so I could pound my way through Dark Souls II
October 08, 2015

I'll be doing a more in-depth blog post than this, but yeah... I beat Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. So, what did I think?

-I ultimately enjoyed it, but it's a step back from the previous game.

-The DLC quests were almost not worthwhile. The first one was good, but the best boss fight it offers was basically a retread of Black Dragon Kalameet, except he can inflict you with toxic (Sinh, the Slumbering Dragon).

-The hidden boss in the Sunken King DLC was a three-on-one bout against two melee warriors (a heavy and a light) and a ranged character. Apparently this is meant to be a co-op challenge, but the fight is horribly unimaginative and lazy. They even recycled non-boss character models from the previous game (the heavy looks exactly like Hovel the Rock).

Dark Souls II Progress: 9/21/15
September 21, 2015

After killing some non-essential bosses and taking out one of the first four major villains, I've decided it's time to acquire one more Great Soul. So I padded back to Harvest Valley and did lots of running and healing to make up for the fact that I kept getting poisoned. No biggie there. One thing I liked about the area as the abundance of breakable walls that led to sweet goodies. Unfortunately, I needed to lead some sickle-wielding freaks to the walls in order to smash them, but it wasn't too terrible.

It's time...
September 21, 2015

As you may have noticed, I change avatars about seasonally. I've decided to choose one that will last a long time. I recently adopted the Godzilla/Sailor Moon mashup as a placeholder until I settle on a longer lasting image.

After some consideration, it came down to three avatars: Randall Flagg, Mad Hatter, and Firebrand. It was a difficult choice because they're all pretty awesome villains (or antihero, in Firebrand's case). The winner, which I've selected, shall appear shortly after I publish this blog.

HG-27 and RoG-27
September 19, 2015

Occasionally, I find myself without anything to review. When this occurs, I look to old school titles I wish to revisit and review those. I decided, since canceling the Halloween reviews this year, that I would like to undertake a pretty big project without any commitment. If I finish it, awesome. If I don't (and I most likely won't), no sweat. I would, however, like to see how far I can get. So, for both of the websites that host my reviews, I thought I'd do a review for each letter of the alphabet for six different platforms/categories. Total, that would be 324 reviews. Yeah, like I said, it's not likely to be completed and I'm okay with that. Here's what I've finished so far.

Dark Souls II Progress: 9/17/15
September 17, 2015

Have you ever experienced that odd transitional stage in a game with flexible linearity? You know, where wander around and search a few areas before making any major headway? That sums up my last week or so with Dark Souls II. I beefed up, sharpened my Uchigatana, and pretty much plowed through anything that didn't look friendly.
