About Me:

I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.


Just... eight... more...
August 06, 2015

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 now I'm about to do something very painful.
July 31, 2015

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.

DreamDeeply: turning movie monsters into canine nightmares
July 27, 2015

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:

GODZILLA


Or is it "Dogzilla" now?

Gaming Progress + RPG clearing: Anor Londo Edition
July 26, 2015

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.

Gaming Progress + RPG clearing: Additional Dead Bosses
July 14, 2015

RISEN 2: DARK WATERS (PC)


I don't have much to report here because I mostly spent my time grinding so I could afford an improved sword. Long/short: I engaged in enough crab killing, pearl farming, and house raiding to afford a better saber. Now I think I shall be doing a tad more exploring.

DARK SOULS (PS3)


Most of my progress consists of exploring, dying, nabbing a few items that I'm glad to have (elite knight armor set, for instance), but mostly of some dead bosses.

Gaming Progress + RPG clearing

RISEN 2: DARK WATERS (PC)


It's somewhat shaping out like a proper Risen title.

Risen and Gothic both started you out with next to nothing. Through survivalist tactics and careful grinding, you eventually ascend into the roll of an armor-clad badass or a staff-toting spell-slinger. Dark Waters kind of does the same the thing. You begin with not even a shirt on your back and a basic sword, but you (should, at least) have plenty of healing items called "provisions." Pretty much any time you nab a generic food, instead of separating each particular morsel into slightly different items types, they're all counted as provisions. Yeah, so a jug of wine and an apple have the same effect...

Gaming Progress: the RPG clearing project has begun!
July 04, 2015

Chaos is dead, and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light has come to a close. I have temporarily shelved most of my other projects (Chronicles of a Dark Lord, Arc Rise Fantasia, etc). , with the exception of Soul Reaver 2 and Injustice: Gods Among Us, which I intend to fire up now and then. The time has come to begin the big RPG project I blogged about months ago and kick a few RPGs out of my backlog. It'll be a long, grueling process that might leave me sick of RPGs. I'll probably visit some short action titles along the way to make sure that doesn't happen.
