I usually don’t post stuff anymore of what I’ve bought, but perhaps I’m going to start with that again. So here are some of the stuff I’ve bought since mid April.
God of War was fantastic! And one of the best games I’ve played this year and in fact the game that got me out of my gaming slump. I’ve felt like no other game really mattered after I finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2, so I’m glad to be back again. I had Dragon Quest Builders for the PS4, but wanted to play it on the go instead. And I wanted it on the Switch, because I’m going to buy Builders 2 for the Switch if it’s released in the west.
I’ve owned .Hack G.U Last Recode before but traded it away. Not it seems like it’s harder to get a hold of, so I snagged a copy again. Been wanting to try the Yakuza series and see what all the fuss is about. Just have to get some time to be able to play it too…
Since I was never a fan of the Wii U, I missed out of a couple of great games. And since I love my Switch so much, I was going to fix this little problem. The problem of missing certain games of course. So far it’s been fun and a bit frustrating, but it’s nice to play a Donkey Kong game again. I’m going to try and buy every Wii U game that is ported to Switch. So perhaps it’s time for Captain Toad next time.
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.
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.
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… 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.
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..
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?)
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
So I woke up this morning not feeling all to well, must have been something I ate.
But pretty quickly my queasiness turned into excitement. Because I woke up to news that we are getting two new Rare Blades. This Friday, the 27th! Oh happy days!
Well that in itself is good, but what really got me excited was that one of these Rare Blades are T-elos from Xenosaga Episode III! YEAH!!
More Xenosaga characters in Xenoblade. So happy with this news and I just love Kouichi Mugitani (CHOCO) artstyle so damn much. Really happy to see him getting more of his designs into Xenoblade 2. T-elos will be available to all who has finished the game and its said to have a pretty high rate of appearing in a Core Crystal.
I sure hope so, wouldn’t want another KOS-MOS grind on my hand.
The other Rare Blade that has been revealed is Poppi Buster. A clone(?) version of Poppi that any character can use. She is exclusive to those who buy or have bought the Expansion pass. This Poppi is a bit more yellow and seems to have an antenna on her head. Oh and right, she has her own freaking mech! Probably where the ”Buster” part comes in!
Either way Poppi Buster is looking rather cool! Well at least the Nopon like mech is, she will be obtainable via a quest ingame. Man I’m so looking forward to getting back into this game again, it feels like it never stops giving.
I guess that’s why I’m having such a hard time to let it go. They also said they have finished voice recording for a new Rare Blade that will also be released, a bit unsure if it will be coming with this update or at a later date.
I sure do hope T-elos will be using the scythe in the artwork, really looking forward to add her to my group. Bring me more Xenosaga characters MonolithSoft and Bandai Namco, or even better. Bring me a Xenosaga HD Collection.
I’ve been kind of tired of the design of the old site. So I’ve been wanting to remodel it for sometime now. Been working on this little by little.
I grew tired of the dark and orange colors, so now I have a few more lighter colors on the site. I like it a lot myself. The design for this is a bit inspired (ripped of) from the WordPress theme ”Rowling”. But I’m not done yet I’m going to fix the search bar so it looks better. Hopefully going to fix the comment section. Get an overhaul on my Beaten and owned games. At least that’s what I’m hoping to be able to do.
But it will probably take a little while before anything of this happens. Or you know I just have to have a real boring time and I’ll probably do it in like a few hours. Haha.
But some of the changes besides the colors I’ve made are that some fonts are now bigger and easier to read. And again I think these colors are a bit easier to the eye, at least they follow a theme now. A theme that isn’t just dark.
Well hopefully I can add more of those little extra things in, I just want this to feel good!
In other news I’ve started playing the new God of War for the PlayStation 4 and it’s fantastic! I like it, I like it a lot. Actually it’s the first game I’ve played since Xenoblade Chronicles 2 that I really feel like playing, it broke me out of my gaming slump.
I’m a amazed that they took a character like Kratos, who more or less just was a raging bull and a bit of a boring character and made him interesting. Well I won’t speak more of the game, since I think you all should play the game and I won’t say to much because I haven’t finished the game myself.
I’m still debating if I should keep the site in English or Swedish or just make a few posts in the language I feel like for the moment.
I really don’t know what to do. I can reach out to more people in English and I might start to like doing some reviews again if I speak English. But some parts are easier in Swedish and I might want to do some videos in the future… But I don’t know in what language there either! Well as we say in Sweden this is a real ”I-lands problem”.
Ahh! Semester. Visst är det skönt? Det är skönt att bara säga det, semester.
Det ska bli så otroligt skönt att få sova ut lite och samla kraft igen, de senaste två veckorna har varit lite väl stressiga i min mening.
Men som sagt, nu blir det att ta det lugnt och samla kraft. Ta igen lite spelande som jag missat de senaste två veckorna. Eller missat och missat, jag har helt enkelt inte orkat spela. Ska ta tag i ett spel som legat och väntat på att bli avklarat, det är nämligen
Golf Story till Nintendo Switch. Är mot slutet av spelet nu, men det har legat i flera månader, så känner vill få ett avslut på det nu. Får väl se vad som sker. Haha.
Även om det känns drygt att fortsätta med det. Kanske skippar det ändå…
Nåja, annars blir det att lägga min fokus på Ni no Kuni II. Gillar det jag spelat av det, men det har fått ta lite stryk nu, när jag inte haft orken att spela.
Har lite inplanerade besök till läkare också, bara lite rutin grejer. Annars ska jag köra storstädning i hela lägenheten, förhoppningsvis kanske till och med möblera om lite. Ska inte hoppas på för mycket, men jag vill möblera om. Vet inte vad som blir bäst dock, känner jag har inte de bästa möjligheterna att ändra om. Eller jo, det har jag kanske. Jag vet hur jag vill ha det, men allt det kräver nya möbler. Haha.
Printade lite egna posters! Dom är i storlek 50 x 70 och Xenoblade Chronicles 2 postern är i gudomligt kvalité. KOS-MOS bilden är dessvärre inte lika bra IRL, då jag hade ingen högupplöst artwork. Men den duger helt klart, vill ju ha lite mer liv i lägenheten.
Har typ inte haft något på väggarna på över 5 år, men det är 5 år delat på två lägenheter. Har inte velat sätta upp något då tanken inte var att bo där under en längre tid. Men kände jag verkligen behövde göra det hemtrevligare nu.
Så det börjar kännas skönt nu faktiskt, lite som om man faktiskt bor här.
Det blir att beställa fler posters längre fram, ska bara hitta stora och bra motiv.
Har ni några förslag på på något så hojta till i kommentarerna, alltid kul att se vad folk själv hade satt upp. Känner inte att jag behöver mer Xeno-relaterade posters i alla fall, om man skulle hitta något stort och bra för Tales of-serien. Hm… Det kan bli bra det.
We finally have confirmation of when Dragon Quest XI will be released in the west.
The release date is September 4 for PlayStation 4 and Steam.
So just a few months away! Great news, for me at least is that they will add voice acting. The Japanese original release didn’t have voices at all. It will feature some fixes and changes, you can see them a bit down on this post.
Here are some of the stuff they are adding and fixing to the game.
- English Voiceover
- Draconian Quest, a hard mode that offers additional challenges for more experienced players.
- Overhauled Menus & UI, with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation.
- Camera Mode, allowing players to take in views of the beautiful landscape, character renders and ferocious monsters in detail.
- A New Dash Function and many other system enhancements such as improved character and camera movement
They have confirmed that they will not release the 3DS version, but they will release the Nintendo Switch version in both Europe and America when it is released.
Much later. At least they’ve confirmed it’s coming, but we still don’t know if it will be an upgraded 3DS version or the same version released on PS4.
I’m just glad we finally have a date, even if it’s about five months away. At least now I have something to look forward to. Might even take a vacation day to enjoy it fully.
