Alla mina förbokade spel (2018-06-10)

Ja, nu är jag tillbaka och skriver på svenska igen. Nu kommer jag hålla mig till detta, det är ju möjligt det kommer ett och annat engelsk inlägg ibland. Om det är något jag vill ska nå ut till en större massa. Men har bestämt mig nu, tycker det är roligare att skriva på svenska och även om det resulterar i lite mindre läsare så får det väl vara så.

Inlägget innan detta handlade om samma sak, men det har hänt lite och blivit en eller två ändringar i förbokningarna. Så ville köra en uppdatering på det, plus att jag får börja om med ett svenskt inlägg om spel. Hehe. Nu byter jag inte mer, så ber om ursäkt till dom som tycker det varit jobbigt. Men nu kör vi på. :3
 

Shining Resonance Refrain

Release: 2018-07-10 | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

Har sett smått fram emot detta sedan det släpptes till PlayStation 3 i Japan, men nu en generation senare kommer det släppas till Switch, PS4, Xbox One och PC i väst.
Detta spelet verkar gå i ett musikaliskt tema och det älskar jag! Vapnen på karaktärerna är också ett instrument av diverse slag, någon har ett svärd som också är en elgitarr. Awesome! Känner man sig osäker på spelet så kan man testa den demo som kommer släppas till Switch, PS4 och Xbox One den 12 juni. Om Switch demot flyter på bra så kör jag på den versionen, annars kanske jag ändrar min bokning till PS4.
För övrigt gillar jag verkligen Taka Tonys artstil, speciellt hur han rita älvor… Mmm.
 

Octopath Traveler

Release: 2018-07-13 | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

I börjar var jag inte så intresserad av detta spelet, brydde mig inte ens om demot som finns. Men så ville en kompis testa det och även jag föll lite för det då. Gillar verkligen denna 3D pixel stil eller vad man ska kalla det. Jag hoppas det kommer bli bra, känner mig väl fortfarande lite orolig för spelet, men jag tror det kommer kännas hur bra som helst när man väl spelar det. Kommer börja spela som dansaren Primrose! <3
 

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Release: 2018-07-13 | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

Ett av de spelen jag helt ignorerade till Wii U. Tyckte inte det såg speciellt roligt ut och det tycker jag väl lite nu också faktiskt. Men jag ska ge det en chans, tror nog jag kan uppskatta det mer nu än jag hade gjort förr. Det ska bli spännande, för jag har ju hört en hel del bra grejer om spelet åtminstone.
 

Dragon Quest XI: Echos of an Elusive Age

Release: 2018-08-04 | Köper till: PlayStation 4

I februari gjorde jag ett stort Fokus inlägg om detta spelet, så är ni intresserad av att läsa vad jag tycker så kan ni läsa om det här. ÄR så oerhört glad att vi fått lite mer info sedan det inlägget, vi har fått ett release datum och de har bekräftat att spelet kommer innehålla röster. Något som jag verkligen hoppades på, nej det finns inga Japanska röster för det finns ingen japansk dubb. Det engelska blir original dubben. ;)
 

Spider-Man

Release: 2018-04-07 | Köper till: PlayStation 4

Spider-Man är nog ett av de spelen jag ser fram emot mest i år eller som jag hoppas mest på ska jag kanske säga. Håller tummarna på att det blir ett riktigt bra Spider-Man spel, det ska högre makter veta att det finns det inte allt för många av!
Det blev snabbt en förbokning efter att dom hade visat spelet första gången, så ser fram emot att få svinga runt i storstaden med Spidde snart igen.
 

Kingdom Hearts III

Release: 2019-01-29 | Köper till: PlayStation 4

Äntligen har vi ju fått ett datum på Kingdom Hearts III. Nu återstår det ju bara att se om det kommer bli försenat. Igen. Tyvärr kommer det inte i år som det sades från början, utan vi får vänta tills slutet av januari nästa år. Ska ska jag äntligen återvända till Sora, Kalle och Långben och resa runt i nya världar och träffa gamla Disney vänner.
 

Super Smash Bros Switch

Release: 2018-??-?? | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

Här är ett spel jag är väldigt spänd på! Har inte spelat ett Smash Bros spel sedan Melee till GameCube, så jag har missat en del. Så det blir ju att ta igen det nu! Själv hoppas jag ju på att vi får fler Xenoblade karaktärer i Smash. Hade gärna sett Elma från Xenoblade Chronicles X med i spelet. Fler kickass brudar tack!
 

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu

Release: 2018-11-16 | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

Är försiktigt optimistiskt till detta spelet, ett Pokémon spel som är lite mer bundet till Pokémon GO kan nog bli intressant. Om inget annat gillar jag verkligen artstilen på spelet. Gillar ju själv att dom går tillbaka till Kanto och de första 151 Pokémons.
Slutade ju spela Pokémon efter Gold & Silver, så blir en nice nystart för mig att komma tillbaka till den delen jag känner till bäst.
 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2018-??-?? | Köper till: PlayStation 4

Vet väl inte om man riktigt ska räkna detta som en förbokning då det är en Kickstarter jag varit med och bidragit till, men vafan. Den får vara med ändå! Har längtat efter spelet sedan jag såg det för första gången på Kickstarter, har ju velat ha fler ”Igavania” spel. Dom har sagt det kommer i år, så jag hoppas det inte blir försenat igen. Får helt enkelt hålla tummarna, annars får jag väl trösta mig med att ytterligare en försening bara gör det bättre… Eller hur?
 

Yoshi

Release: 2018-??-?? | Köper till: Nintendo Switch

Med E3 bokstavligen runt hörnet, lär vi ju få se mer av spelet och mycket troligen få ett release datum och spelet fulla namn. Ser fram emot detta då jag hade trevligt med Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze. Saknat denna typen av spel, sedan tycker jag just Yoshi spelet ser både kul och charmigt ut.
 

My preordered games of 2018 (So far)

Well I posted to separate posts before of the games I have preordered so far this year. And since those lists now has changed a bit, I thought I’d update them and put them in a big post instead. Some of the games have been released, others I changed my preorder for and some new ones have been added to the list.
 

Shining Resonance Refrain

Release: 2018-07-10 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I’m not sure how many Shining games we got outside of Japan, at least the none SRPG ones. Not so interested in those myself, but I’m very interested in this title.
Firstly I really like Tony Taka’s artstyle, especially how he draws elfs. Mmm…
But it looks like a fun JRPG, with battles in the vein of the Tales of games. And it’s based heavily around music and the characters weapons are also instruments and that is very intriguing to me.
 

Octopath Traveler

Release: 2018-07-13 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I wasn’t very into this game from the start, but the more I saw and saw of my friend trying the demo, it sold me on the game. It looks charming and at the same time I feel relaxed and happy when I see the sprites in this game. Time will tell if this preorder was a wise one, since I’m still a bit on the fence about this one.
Sure, Shining Resonance might not be a wise buy either. But I’m taking my chance with both and I hope they’ll be great.
 

Dragon Quest XI: Echos of an Elusive Age

Release: 2018-08-04 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

Back in February I made a bigger post about this game, but in Swedish. If you are interested to see my thoughts about it, you can read it here. Well since that post we’ve actually gotten a release date, it will come out in the beginning of September, more precise the 4th. God I’m looking forward to this! So glad they are adding voice-acting into the version in west. And some other fixes.
 

Spider-Man

Release: 2018-04-07 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

Another one of those games I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced and as soon as we got the release date I quickly preordered it. It’s a shame it will be released 3 days after Dragon Quest XI, that means I’ll probably have to wait a bit with DQ before I start it, because I want to give it my complete focus.
And the same with Spider-Man.
 

Kingdom Hearts III

Release: 2018-??-?? | Buying for: PlayStation 4

Kingdom Hearts… Well what can I say?
Supposed to the end of Sora’s story arc and hopefully tie some of the story together in a good way. But I’m mostly excited for the new worlds, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Tangled, Big Hero 6 to name a few. With rumors of this one release around November, this will be my Christmas game this year. Just like the first game was, all those years ago when it released.
 

Super Smash Bros Switch

Release: 2018-??-?? | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Can’t wait to see more from this game! The last Smash Bros game I played was Melee for the GameCube, so I’m really itching to get back into the fun. Keeping my fingers more Xenoblade representatives joins the battle, would love to see Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X appear in the game. Either was I preordered this was as soon as I knew it was available for preorder. Now like with all other stuff in here, we play the waiting game. (Do I need to preorder that game too?)
 

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu

Release: 2018-11-16 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

This is going to be somewhat exciting. A Pokémon game that is a bit tied with Pokémon Go. Which I actually tried for the first time last week. Haha.
I think it looks good and Gen 1 is a bit closer to my heart than all the new Pokémon stuff, so I’m looking forward to heading back to Kanto and see if I still have some love left for Pokémon. :)
 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2018-??-?? | Buying for: PlayStation 4

This isn’t really a preorder? Or is it? Either way I’ve been waiting for Bloodstained ever since I donated to the Kickstarter and hopefully nothing happens and we’ll finally see a release this year. Well I’m really looking forward to getting a new ”Igavania” like game, it could actually be one of the games I’m looking forward to most this year. I’m also thinking about buying a second copy of the game, since my Kickstarter copy is a PlayStation 4 version, I might buy a Switch version.
 

Yoshi

Release: 2018-??-?? | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

With E3 around the corner, we will probably get the full name and release date of the game. Really looking forward to try this, had a blast with Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, so I really want to go back to these kinds of games. I think it looks fun and charming.
 

Games I’ve preordered 2018 – Part 2

Here is part two of my series of preordered games. It’s not the games I’m looking forward to in 2018, but rather I’ll talk about the games I’ve preordered and are coming out this year. If nothing happens to delay them, something I can’t foresee when I’m writing this. I’m splinting this into multiple posts, just so one post doesn’t get to long an clotted. AS of now there is no part three, but I’m guessing that will change after E3.
If any of the games there will be released this year.
 

Dragon Quest XI: Echos of an Elusive Age

Release: 2018-08-04 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

Back in February I made a bigger post about this game, but in Swedish. If you are interested to see my thoughts about it, you can read it here. Well since that post we’ve actually gotten a release date, it will come out in the beginning of September, more precise the 4th. God I’m looking forward to this! So glad they are adding voice-acting into the version in west. And some other fixes.
 

Spider-Man

Release: 2018-04-07 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

Another one of those games I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced and as soon as we got the release date I quickly preordered it. It’s a shame it will be released 3 days after Dragon Quest XI, that means I’ll probably have to wait a bit with DQ before I start it, because I want to give it my complete focus.

Darksiders III

Release: 2018 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

While I do not know much more about the game beside the title and that we get to play as the third horseman (woman) Fury. I’m just glad the Darksiders series is back and I sure do hope this does well so we can get a fourth game with Strife.
I’m just hoping in style and quality this title is more like the first and much less like the second one..
 

Super Smash Bros Switch

Release: 2018 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Can’t wait to see more from this game! The last Smash Bros game I played was Melee for the GameCube, so I’m really itching to get back into the fun.

Games I’ve preordered 2018 – Part 1

Now to something a bit different but still a bit familiar. This time is not a list of games
I want, but games I’ve preordered. So this time around it’s not the games I’m looking forward to in 2018, but rather I’ll speak a bit of the the games I’ve preordered and are coming out this year. If nothing happens to delay them, something I can’t foresee when I’m writing this. I’m splinting this post up into parts of 5 games per post, so it doesn’t get to clotted.
 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2018 | Buying for: PlayStation 4 (Maybe Switch)

Firstly we’ll start with something that isn’t really a preorder? Or is it? Either way I’ve been waiting for Bloodstained ever since I donated to the Kickstarter and hopefully nothing happens and we’ll finally see a release this year. Well I’m really looking forward to getting a new ”Igavania” like game, it could actually be one of the games I’m looking forward to most this year. I’m also thinking about buying a second copy of the game, since my Kickstarter copy is a PlayStation 4 version, I might buy a Switch version.
 

Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze [Switch]

Release: 2018-04-05 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I never was a fan of the Wii U, so I skipped a bunch of games on the console. But this time around with the Switch I’m going to buy as much of the games Nintendo put out.
I really want to support them. So I’m extra glad they are releasing Tropical Freeze, so I a Wii U deserter can have a chance to play this fun looking game.
 

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

Release: 2018-05-18 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Hyrule Warriors was one of the titles I actually played on Wii U, but got a bit pissed when the 3DS got a version with a whole lot of improvements. That Switch owners where locked out of, but they are finally fixing this little misstep (IMO).
With the Switch version is brings the best of both versions of the game.

Kommande Nintendo spel – DEL 1

Vi drar väl igång med en klassiker och kollar lite på vad vad det är för spel jag ser fram emot, men denna gången kommer jag dela upp det hela. Annars blir listorna för stora och för röriga känner jag. Därför börjar jag med Nintendo och lite av deras spel som jag ser fram emot, det är inte säkert att alla titlar har fått ett datum vid tiden detta inlägget görs.

 

Bayonetta 1 + Bayonetta 2

Release: 2018-02-16 | Format: Nintendo Switch

Jag har aldrig fått en möjlighet att spela Bayonetta 2, så nu när det äntligen kommer till Switch så ska jag ha dom! Dock är jag sjukt besviken på både Nintendo of America och Nintendo Europe, som har valt att enbart släppa Bayonetta 1 digitalt. Detta resulterade då i att jag bokat den japanska version av Bayonetta Nonstop Climax Edition. Som är den enda version som innehåller en fysisk utgåva av Bayonetta 1. Lite dyrare än jag hoppades på, men kommer ångra mig om jag inte får ha båda fysiskt. Ser fram emot att sparka röv med Bayonetta igen. Bayonetta 1 är ett av de mest underhållande action spelen jag spelat på senare år.

Kirby: Star Allies

Release: 2018-03-16 | Format: Nintendo Switch

The Rainbow Paintbrush var inget bra spel i min mening, gillade det inte alls. Men Star Allies ser ut att bli ett mer traditionell Kirby äventyr. Nu har jag i och för sig inte spelat så många Kirby spel i mitt liv, men detta ser ut att vara kul som tusan. Inte minst för att man kan spela 4spelare samtidigt, riktigt härligt med fler spel att spela tillsammans med vänner.
Sedan ser det ju sådär härligt charmigt ut, detta är fler spel i denna typen som jag kommer försöka skaffa i framtiden.

Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze

Release: 2018-05-04 | Format: Nintendo Switch

It’s time to funk like Funky Kong! Spelade aldrig detta spelet när det kom till Wii U, så det får man ju se till att fixa nu! Hört mycket gott om spelet, framför allt från min goda vän CrilleKross. Så det är ytterligare ett av dessa måste ha spelen. Vi får se om det blir på releasen dock, har ju ingen större betydelse när man köper det då Nintendos spel aldrig går ner i pris.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

Release: 2018-??-?? | Format: Nintendo Switch

Vi har inget datum för spelet än, men det kommer släppas i Japan den 22e Mars, så det borde komma runt samma tid eller någon gång i april kan man ju hoppas. Har kört Wii U versionen av spelet sedan tidigare och ett av de Musou/Warriors spel jag verkligen gillar. Så jag blev rejält sur när 3Dsen fick en version med exklusivt innehåll, dock i Switch versionen kommer vi få allt. Därav ”Definitive Edition”. Ser fram emot att få springa runt och slakta horder av fiender med Ganon och hans trogna treudd klädd i hans Wind Waker kläder.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix

Release: 2018-??-?? | Format: Nintendo Switch

Släpptes från början till Nintendo DS för 10år sedan, var inget jag var intresserad av då. Men nu är jag lite nyfiken, då jag hört mycket bra om spelet. Känner man får väl passa på att stödja så många JRPG man kan på Switch också, man vill ju gärna ha mer utav det.
Vet väldigt lite om detta spelet, känns även som detta är det spel jag har stört chans att inte fastna för av de som är med på denna listan. Så det får bli mitt chansning spel, när det väl kommer.

Dragon Quest Builders 2

Release: 201?-??-?? | Format: Nintendo Switch

Det första Dragon Quest Builders släpps nästa månad på Switch, men det kommer jag skippa. Däremot ser jag sjukt mycket fram emot tvåan! Jag hoppas detta kommer utannonseras att det kommer utanför Japan och att vi får Switch versionen också. Var tänkt att köpa det till PlayStation 4 från början, men med tanke på hur kär jag blivit i att spela Switch portabelt och co-op i DQB2 så blir det Switch versionen som gäller. Man kommer förlora sig i timmar med byggandet. Än så länge vet vi inte ens det japanska release datumet, men jag hoppas det kommer snart och att vi inte behöver vänta länge på att spelet kommer till väst heller.

 

BUBBLARE
Sedan finns det ju redan en del spel ute som jag vill ha som jag inte fått en chans att spela än. Ett som ligger högt upp där är Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, en Zelda klon som är i klassisk Zelda 2D stil. Det ser helt fantastiskt ut! Men jag är osäker på om jag ska köpa det nu eller invänta den hintade fysiska releasen…
Jag är också väldigt sugen på Axiom Verge, har hört mycket bra om det också. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle skulle jag också vilja testa, även om jag inte är helt såld på spelet. Fire Emblem Warriors var jag sugen på, men nu när Hyrule Warriors kommer så avvaktar jag.

My favorite things from 2017

Last year was a pretty great year, I was happier, I had more money than I used to have and I just felt better than I have in a long time. Well except I had to remove more kidney stones later in the year, but before and after that everything was pretty good. Now that I’m heading into this year, I’d like to take sometime to reflect on the things I enjoyed most last year. One reason for doing this is to make sure, I have have some new experiences this year and hopefully it will continue to keep me growing as a person. I’m also hoping this year will be the year, I’ll loose som goddamn weight, so I have to really work for that.

 

* Manager at my work
I got a promotion and became manager at my work or as we say here ”driftledare”, so perhaps work leader would be a more correct translation. But I think they are about the same. Well anyway it felt great, I’ve worked hard and wanted to prove to myself I can become more and I can do better. Now I’m trying my best to make sure everything works as it should and everyone has been tremendously helpful and I’m glad I share this with a colleague of mine.

* I actually traveled
Yeah, I’m not still to fond of this. But after being totally out of it in 2016 due to kidney stones, I knew I had to be more active when I had my vacation. And I was, sure we never left Skåne, but it was nice leaving home a bit. Just of doing silly stuff my with the best of pals.

* I started cooking more
Sure not as much as I wanted or should have, but it’s an improvement. I’ve tried making stuff that seemed a bit hard do me and to my surprise it turned out great. I have a bit of a problem following recipes since I think they aren’t explaining all I need to know, but I’m pretty proud of what has come out of it. Gotta get better and better and hopefully try new things.

* I went out to eat expensive stuff
Perhaps not something to talk about really, but I’ve never really liked going out and eating expensive food. Mostly because I’ve never had the money for it and secondly it felt wrong somehow when I’ve never could afford it before. But it was damn good and fun, two times this year I was at out local Steakhouse with good friends. Hope to be able to do this more in 2018 and more of my friends will join us.

* Bowling for birthday
I usually don’t celebrate my birthday, but my friends dragged me out and took me bowling. It was super fun bowling with friends, I’ve only gone bowling with my work in the past and while that’s fun, this was even better. Good friends, having a good time and getting treated to good food. What more could you possibly want?

* I went on a date
Stop the presses!! What!? Yeah, it’s true. I met a very lovely girl and we went out, but sadly it didn’t click for me. Or perhaps I wasn’t ready for anything. But I’m glad we can be friends.

* I spent money on something I love
Well what so strange about that you are wondering? As I said before, I’ve always had a ruff economy, both growing up and in my adulthood. It was under 2017 I got rid of one big debt and I’m no focusing on the big last one, but thanks to this my economy became better and I decided to treat myself to some good stuff for my birthday. But it was more like a late birthday present. I bought both the Collectors Edition and Limited edition controller for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. I next to never buy Special, Limited or Collectors editions of games, so this was pretty big for me and I don’t regret it at all.

* Release of the Nintendo Switch
I bought the Nintendo Switch on it’s release and it was fantastic, me and my buddy Elden was at the midnight sale our local GameStop had. They don’t have to many of those, so you’ll have to take your chances. Either way it was a great experience and seeing so many people there was awesome, the Nintendo Switch is probably one of my favorite things from 2017. I really like and enjoy this little console, I’ve always liked Nintendo but they had lost me for a few years. But now they are back in full force it seems and I couldn’t be happier.

The games I beat in 2017

While I did make a list about this before, that’s all it was. A list. I wanted to make it a bit more detailed and perhaps add some of my favorite games in the bottom. I kind of took inspiration with this from my friend opkji. Sorry mate, I hope that is okay with you? :)
In 2016 I beat 38 games and I tried the 52 games in a year challenge and as you’ve might have guess, I didn’t make it. But it was fun to try, might give it another go in a couple of years. But I managed to beat 44 games last year, so that feels good that I at least played more than 2016. Hope 2018 brings the same kind of number.

 

Nintendo 3DS
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D
I hadn’t played Majora’s Mask before so I thought I had to give it a go now. And I didn’t like it, not at all infact. Disliked temples, I didn’t find it engaging at all and I didn’t like the time system in the game. I never once felt the dread of the world ending because of it. Now I understand that some people love this game, just like I love other games people hate. But for me, this has been the worst Zelda game I’ve played.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
With disappointment in my heart, I needed to play a Zelda game I knew I enjoyed. So I replayed A Link Between Worlds, hadn’t played it since it’s release. And this game just proved to me that I much prefer the 2D-style Zelda games over 3D the 3DS. Yes, this game has 3D models in it, but it has the same top-down style like older Zelda games and plays like the GameBoy games. One of my favorite games on the 3DS and they are using my favorite style on Link.

 

Nintendo Switch
SnipperClips: Cut it out, Together!
I’m not all that into puzzle games anymore, but man this is fun! Played it in 2player mode with my friend ZX-Omega and we had a blast!

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment
DLC nr.2 let’s you play as Specter Knight and oh boy is he fun too play as! Shovel Knight and it’s DLC are all awesome! You need to play.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
How I looked forward t this game, the shear size of Hyrule is mind blowing. See those mountains there in the horizon? I’m gonna climb those! One of the best Zelda games I’ve played and I’m looking forward to the next big 3D Zelda title. They don’t have to change much, just the weapon breaking, make the world more lively and not so ruined. I’ve heard many say, ”How will Nintendo top this title?”. In my honest opinion, they don’t need to top it, just make one that’s equally good.

Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope
One again I return to Shovel Knight! After Zelda I needed something a bit different, so I replayed Shovel Knight. Again.
Man I love this game.

Blaster Master Zero
Played the original on the NES when I was younger, but I never beat it. So I thought I’d give this version a try, it was pretty nice. Frustrating at times though.

Kamiko
A cute little game with Shrine Maidens trying to protect or save the world. It was cheap and it was short, but I enjoyed it.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap
It’s a trap! Pretty good remake of a game I’ve never played before, but I did enjoy this. Love the new more cartoony mode. But it’s also nice for those who want to play with the original graphics, you can pick which one you prefer. Will probably replay in the future.

Super Bomberman R
While I’m not a fan of Bomberman it was nice to see the guy(‘s and gals) back. Still I wish we could get a remake of Bomberman 64, still my favorite Bomberman game to date. I really need to try the multiplayer in this game with a couple of friends.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst
What Mighty No.9 should have been. I like the style, it’s fun to play and actually feels like it has replay value. Again, everything MN9 should have been.

Cave Story+
Hear a lot of stuff about this game, so thought I’d try it when it came to Switch. It was good, but not worth the money. Not much more to say really.

Disgaea 5 Complete
The Disgaea series is nice, but if this game thought me anything its that I’ve grown tried of them. A good game of course, but it feels stale and it hasn’t evolved much.

Sonic Mania
Finally a more classic Sonic game and it’s not shite! Actually it’s really good, one of the better experiences I’ve had with Sonic in the past 10years.

Super Mario Odyssey
”Here we go, of the rails it’s time to set our sails” man that song has been stuck in my head so much! The Mario game I’ve been dreaming of since Super Mario 64, I much enjoyed it. But I wish they toned the the moon collection part, there should have been fewer moons and harder to get. The collection part of the game gave me nothing.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Currently 144 hours into this game and I have finished it and what a game! My favorite from last year without a doubt, but then again there are many games from last year that I would give first place. The emotions and the travels I’ve had with this title are all real, when I’m not playing this game I’m thinking about playing it and I’ve also dreamt about the game. My only problem with it is the damn RNG blade system, 144 hours in and I’m still grinding in hope of getting KOS-MOS…

 

PlayStation 2
Power Rangers: Super Legends
Not only the worst game I’ve played in 2017, but probably one of the worst games I’ve ever played.

Gitaroo Man
I really love this game, my favorite rhythm game, but I wish they had released it as a PS4 classic or something.

 

PlayStation 4
My name is Mayo
The only reason I ”played” this was because I heard it was easy to get a platinum trophy. It was. Don’t do this to yourselves.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
A lot of people seem to dislike this one, but I enjoyed it. Perhaps not as good as the first one, but since I never liked the original Tomb Raider games Is till think this is good.

Steamworld Dig
I don’t know what to say about this one, it didn’t really click. Don’t want to say much more, I think I’ll get death threats if I do.

Tales of Berseria
A fresh wind for the Tales of series, with one of the best casts for the series in a long while. If perhaps not my favorite cast, it is a prequel to Tales of Zestiria but you really need to play this. It’s so much better and darker than most Tales of games.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-
A nice little game where you play as Aqua and a good lite demo of what to expect of Kingdom Hearts III.

Stories: A Path of Destiny
No sir, this was not for me. I really don’t want to dwell deeper into it.

Batman A Telltale Series
It’s a Batman story game from TellTale Games. I think that says it all.

Kingdom Hearts II HD Final Mix
My first time beating Kingdom Hearts II and it felt good! Now I feel like I’m more ready for Kingdom Hearts 3, but I guess I’ll h ave to try and beat Birth by Sleep and DDD too someday.

NieR: Automata
A great game from PlatinumGames and a strange game, just what I expected from Yoko Taro. I like the original NieR much more personally.

Crash Bandicoot 1 HD
Never played any Crash games before, so this was pretty fun. Old school hard platformer. Need to play the other two games on day.

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age
Didn’t like this game when it first released on PS2, but after FF13 I enjoyed this much more. Still not a favorite and I’m not a big fan of Ivalance, but it was a nice game.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
While I’m really tired of TellTale’s games, this was really good. Will at least play the last season of Walking Dead, then I’m probably never touching their games again.

Shantae Half-Genie Hero: Pirate Queen’s Quest
While it was fun to play as Risky Boots, this DLC was so cheap… Same bosses, same stages as the standard game. Cheap, cheap, cheap.
While Shovel Knight reuses the same stages too, they at least change it around some. It’s still enjoyable, but I wish there was more.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Chloe and Nadie don’t need no man! These ladies are here to kick as and they kick well! A really good game, do yourselves a favor and play it if you like the Uncharted games.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
The first Ys game I actually finish and I enjoyed it, mostly of it at least. I hate ”Tower defense” mechanics in games and it was some of the worst parts of this game, other than that it’s fun! The game will be getting a new translation patch sometime in 2018, so if you haven’t played it yet, you can wait.

Knack 2
It’s speknackular! Ouch, that hurt my brain to write. Haha. Good sequel with the right kind of updates, I enjoyed this like I enjoyed the first one. Give it a try, you might just like it.

Dragon Quest Builders
Here a game I was very hyped on, played for 20hours and left alone. Until my friend Elden started playing it and put god knows how many hours into it and got me back in the grove. Now I’m eagerly awaiting the second game and looking forward to playing it multiplayer with Elden.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment
Wait a tick? Didn’t I play this earlier in the year? Indeed I did good sir, indeed. But this time it’s the PS4 version and it’s just as great as the the Switch version. I’m so eagerly looking forward to the last DLC ”King of Cards” with King Knight. Will buy a new physical if they release the game again.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Seems like we waited an eternity for this game and I’m not sure what I think about it. I like it, but I think I like The Stick of Truth more. Still really good, but I didn’t feel the same ”hype” playing it as I did with The Stick of Truth.

Dragon Quest Heroes II
I had a pretty good time with the game, but then halfway trough I lost all will to keep playing this. After having to force myself to play through the rest I’m so sick and tried of Musou/Warrior games right now. Game was pretty okay, but frustrating at times.

Sonic Forces
I blame myself for actually thinking this Sonic game would be different. I think I love the theme song the most with the game, I really like ”Fist bump”.
Took this game in one sitting and I’m not returning to it.

 

MegaDrive, SNES, PlayStation 1 & Steam
Sonic The Hedgehog
After playing Sonic Mania, I wanted to go back and play the original. So that’s what I did, so nostalgic. <3

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
Me and my friend Elden went for some co-op play in Turtles in Time and it’s just as fun now as it was over 15years ago.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Me and Elden played this as out Halloween game, still one of the my favorite games of all time. And the first time we played it together.

Mighty Gunvolt
I actually played something on Steam!? Call a doctor. The prequel to Mighty Gunvolt Burst is short but nice. Really enjoyed this little classic.

 

Congrats if anyone is still reading after this long list. Well there they are the 44 games I played in 2017. It was a really good gaming year for me and probably the year with most played game for me in a while. This year I will take it a bit easier, I won’t be buying as many games day one, some special cases don’t apply to this rule. But for the most I’ll wait a month or a halv and get them for like 15-20bucks cheaper. Still have some games from 2017 I need to play.
Well I think my 5 favorite games from 2017 are the following, I don’t want to rank them since I enjoyed them all tremendously.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild,
Tales of Berseria,
and Super Mario Odyssey
