Spelen jag ser fram emot under 2015

Folk som har läst denna bloggen innan eller känner mig, vet att jag älskar spel. Det är en sak som alltid funnit i mitt liv och det är viktigt för mig. Även om det har blivit lite mindre spelande än jag hoppats, för att man jobbar en del. Men tack vare det kan man köpa fler spel och även under 2015 kommer det ett par spel jag gärna vill ha. Här är en liten lista på de jag kommer på just nu som jag verkligen vill ha och måste ha! Nu kan ju oturen vara framme och något av dem försenas, men det får vi hoppas inte sker.

Tales of Zestiria

Jag älskar Tales of-serien. Det är väl den enda JRPG-serie just nu som jag verkligen älskar så otroligt mycket, naturligtvis finns det många bra. Men Tales of-serien ligger mig lite närmare hjärtat. Så när Bandai Namco släpper ett nytt Tales of-spel i väst köper jag det, så länge det inte är till mobil vill säga. Tales of Zestiria ser ut att bli minst lika fartfyllt i fighterna som de senaste i serien, så längtan är stor att få besöka denna världen. <3

Dragon Quest Heroes

När man fick se DQH för första gången blev jag otroligt sugen på spelet. Gjort av Omega Force som är kända för sina “Dynasty Warriors” spel. Dragon Quest Heroes har element ifrån Dynasty Warriors serierna, men ska tydligen vara mer action-rpg. Gillar verkligen hur bra Akira Toriyamas stil passar i 3D och så ser jag fram emot att få spela med klassiska Dragon Quest hjältar. Hoppas detta släpps till sommaren eller så i väst.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman! Alltid denna Batman! Du gör alla förbrytare tokiga! Så vad gör vi? Det är simpelt! Vi dödar Batman! Vi hjälps alla åt! Lite så kommer det nog vara i Batman Arkam Knight. Det sägs också vara det sista spelet i Rocksteadys trilogi, Arkham Origins gjordes inte av dom. Kommer Batman att dö? Kommer Gotham bli skurkarnas paradis? I juni vet vi svaret på de frågorna.

Xenoblade Chronicles X

Som den Xenosaga-fan jag är, så måste jag köpa allt som Monolith Software gör. Jag älskar deras spel, Xenoblade var trevligt även om jag inte klarat det än. Ja, jag skäms över det. Men det tar vi itu med sedan. XBX ser otroligt ut och verkar enormt! Ska bli intressant att få skapa sin egna karaktär och utforska världen.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U

Allt vi har fått se av detta spelet än så länge har gjort mig otroligt hajpad. Allt från de enorma landskapen till att hoppa från hästrygg och skjuter pilar på monster. Zelda spelen levererar alltid på ett eller annat sätt, så jag ser fram emot detta något otroligt. Själv hoppas jag nästan lite att Link fortsätter bära sina blåa kläder vi sett honom bära i de få bilder och trailers vi sett. Var lite uppfriskande att inte se honom i sin tunika, inte för att det är första gången han är utan dem. Hoppas på klädes byte annars. ;)

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Efter MGS4 ville jag i stort sätt inte ha något med serien att göra. För mig var det en besvikelse, somliga delar var naturligtvis bra. Men det slutar på ett otroligt dålig sätt i min mening. Men nog om det nu, MGS5 ser i att bli ett riktigt grymt spel och vi får än en gång bekanta oss med Big Boss. Ska vi äntligen få se honom bli “ond”? Personligen hoppas jag verkligen det och kanske skulle vi kunna få se en ung Solid Snake. Hoppas kan man alltid.

Games, movies and hopefully fun

Man this month has been a killer so far. It hasn’t been easy dragging yourself out of that damn hole called depression, I’m still crawling up and it feels better. But I’m more or less still an emotional wreck when I am alone. Well as I said, its better now. But I’ll be more than happy when this “period” is over and I can go back to feeling well and actually function properly again.
The worst thing about this is that it leaves me with little to no motivation or energy to do anything, I’ve had inFAMOUS: First Light for a while now and I’ve played it for about an hour. I just don’t have any motivation to play games. And now I can play Dust: An Elysian Tail that has interested me for a while, but noooo! Just waste the days by staring at the computer of ceiling.

It’s the same with Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World, I started playing it and got past the intro part. Met Martha for the first time and had my first fight and lost all interest, and it’s not because the game is bad mind you. Still way to early in the game to have an opinion about it, but yeah. It’s like this no matter what I play right now. But hopefully after tomorrows work is done, I can start relaxing and get into something. And while we are on the subject of the Tales of-series, next month Tales of Hearts R will finally be released! And Bandai Namco today announced the game will have support for PlayStation TV, so if you rather want to play it on your TV than on an handheld go right ahead. You can read about it here on the PlayStation Blog. I think this was a great choice and I hope more people who release Vita games make them compatible with PSTV. I hope some old games get some patches to work with PSTV too. I like the Vita don’t get me wrong, but as I’ve said before about handhelds, I’d rather play on a TV-screen. Mostly because my hands cramp so damn easily with handhelds.

If everything goes well, me and Elden should be watching at least three other horror or monster flicks this weekend. On the menu we’ll find, Spiders, Cabin in the Woods and one more that I for the life of me can’t remember right now. Which sucks a bit. I have never seen Spiders before and my expectations are as low as they can be, if I can get a laugh out of the movie at least it won’t be a total waste. Cabin in the woods on the other hand is a movie favorite of mine, I love it! So I’m really looking forward to see that one again. When it’s closer to Halloween we’ll be watching Trick ‘r Treat, we both like that movie very much! I don’t think we’ll watch any of the Halloween movies ironically enough, but I’m hoping and we must keep out own tradition of Freddy VS Jason alive! We always watch it around Halloween and have done for the past 3-4 years now.

Time for ToS: Dawn of The New World!

After finishing Tales of Xillia 2 I was thinking of taking a break from JRPG’s, but then I started doing a bunch of extra sidequests and stuff. So I though I should play Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World instead of just grinding levels in a game I’ve already beaten. Sure I have more to do in it to get “everything”, but right now I’d much rather focus on games I haven’t played.

Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality

I have heard a lot of negative stuff about this game, but it won’t keep me from playing it and to form my own opinion of the game. I have played a few hours of it before on the Wii, but I wasn’t to fond of the controlls. It feelt a bit weird to me and since I am playing the PlayStation 3 version of the game I can play with a controller I like. Not saying it was bad, it just didn’t work for me.

I really like the graphical style, I almost wish the first Symphonia game was remade with these models. I like the more vibrant colors of the game, it is almost like a cartoon. I’m not a fan of monsters taking the place of real characters in the game. You have Emil, Martha, monsters and sometimes you get guest characters that are the old characters from the first game.

I had forgotten what a bunch of assholes the people of Luin are in this game. Emil’s parents was killed by “Lloyd” and he of course hates him for that and because he has an opinion different from all the others in Luin he is treated like shit. It almost makes my blood boil! Mostly because bullying like that sadly excists for real and it pains me. I myself have been treated like I wasn’t worth jack shit, so I really feel for Emil here. Thank god he has Martha at least and she is a breath of fresh air. I really like how open with how she feels about Emil. Not many characters are so open with whom they love in games, so I really like this. Tenebrae is also a great character and will probably get even better/funnier the more I progress through the game. I’m looking forward to see more of the characters.

I’m not sure what the game will give me or what lies ahead for me. Let’s see if I like the game or if I will become of those who dislike it. I don’t think I will though, from what I’ve played I lile it and I take it for what it is.

Tales of Xillia 2 – The feelings

So I finished Tales of Xillia 2 yesterday and I enjoyed it very much. I think it is a worthy successor to Tales of Xillia and one of the best games I’ve played this year. Not to mention that it has been my most anticipated games of the year for me. I am going to talk a bit about the game, but then I’m going to jump in more on the story and there is going to be spoilers. So if you haven’t finished the game stay away from now on. Just wanted to warn you all so you can hang me for it later. From here on there will be spoilers.

(more…)

Gaming Sunday

Today has been a really great day, I’ve done absolutely nothing but playing games. It has been a really lazy Sunday and I love it!!
I’ve had a real hard time putting Tales of Xillia 2 down, I’ve done tons of sidequests and i’m almost addicted to them. XD
Playing poker in TOX2 was pretty fun too and I usually suck at those kind of games. Doing character quests are fun and I love learning more about the characters of the game.

I’m trying to max out some of the characters affection for Ludger too. I’m almost done with the first one and I’m about 40hours in. I really hope the others go much faster. I’m thinking of taking the platinum trophy in this since I have it in the first game. I would love to have the trophies in Tales of Symphonia Chronicles HD too, but they take to much time. But who knows? One day perhaps. The only reason I  are about trophies for the Tales of games are I love showing I’ve finished all the challanges of the game.

Tales of Xillia 2 and stuff

So its been a while since I posted anything. A shame for me since it feels like it’s growing longer between posts, it’s not like I don’t have stuff to write about. But I just don’t get around to it and as I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I write for me. If I write some gibberish or whatever it’s because I need to get that out of my system and if some of you can find something good/funny/ or other stuff in that it makes me happy. =)

And as you see above, I picked up my copy of Tales of Xillia 2 last Friday (22/8). I have just passed about 18h in the game and I’m at level 30 and I’m having a blast so far. Still to early to say if the whole game will be fun, but I’m normally not dissatisfied with the Tales of games. And today I’ve preordered Tales of Hearts R for the PlayStation Vita, I am hoping an crossing my fingers that it will be playable on the PlayStation TV. I’ve got nothing against handhelds, but I can’t sit down with a game and relax the same anymore if it’s on a handheld. You can think what you will, but I’m the one who is missing a ton of great games because of this. =/

I’m also happy because I’ve been able to upgrade my old mobile phone. It was slow and crashed and was ready to die and I’m very dependent on my phone in work, that’s where I keep track of everything I’m planing and stuff like that. So I had to bite the bullet and it put me in the red, but I got a Nexus 5 and I’m very happy with it! I can take better photos, way, way better than my old phone! And I have the need for that to in work, when I have to report some stuff to the bossed. Like and accident or destruction of property we take photos of that. Well enough of that, I’m just so freaking happy to have a phone from the this age.

About one and a half week ago, me and Elden had a barbecue at his place. OMG! It was so damn good! We had ribs, which I must say was the most disappointing of the bunch of meat we had. Then we had tenderloin I think, its called in English. It was some of the best meat I’ve eaten in ages. And I brought a steak that also grilled. Man it was so good! Hope to do that again soon and we watched Mrs.Doubtfire in honor of Robin Williams. It was a really good day and a very stress free day, I really needed that because I was starting to go to a darker place myself. Having not been feeling well and other problems eating away at me and my depression going back and forth like a damn swing. So yeah, that was a great day and it helped me greatly.

So yeah, happy as can be and I’m starting to feel a bit better too. I’ve had a little mini-vacation from work now. But I’m only free one more day, then Thursday it’s back to business. But I’ve had the chance to recharge a bit and do what I wanted, so it feels better. But it is still going to take a while before I’m filled with my usually energy again. At least I hope so, because having to much energy is hard too and it’s much easier to deal with when you to tired to do anything. ;)
