Games I’m looking forward to in 2019: Part 1

I’m sorry, the original post was written in Swedish. So here is comes once again, but with some added stuff. Some of the stuff in the Swedish post has been released, another one has finally gotten a release date. So I thought it was about time to update it. And with E3 around the corner, I’m looking forward to see how many games I can add in an upcoming list. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Trails of Cold Steel II

Release: 2019-06-07 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

I really enjoyed the first Trails of Cold Steel game, so naturally I need to have the second game. Not too far from releasing, really looking forward to this one.
Right now I’m saving myself from playing any JRPG’s just because I want to be JRPG rested and fresh for Cold Steel 2. The first one ended on such a cliffhanger so I really want to know what happens!

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2019-06-28 | Buying for: PlayStation 4 & Nintendo Switch

I’ve had this game on just about every list of games I’m looking forward to, in the last 3-4 years. But now it’s coming to an end! The game finally has a release date and it’s coming very soon! For PS4, Xbox One and PC it will be released on June 21 and it will be released a week later on Switch. I’ve been waiting so long for this game, I’ve always had faith in it. Let’s hope that faith is rewarded. The next post I make with Bloodstained will probably when I either get my copy or my Kickstarter copy of the game.

Dragon Quest Builders 2

Release: 2019-07-12 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

This is also a title that has been featured in a few other game’s I’m looking forward to lists. I am not a fan of Minecraft but I really enjoyed Dragon Quest Builders, so when they announced the sequel I was ecstatic. Especially when there are so many improvements in the game, I’m gonna have a really good time on this game. And since I’m getting the Switch version I’ll be able to play this game together with my friends in the same room! Couch co-op is the best! The PS4 version will only have multiplayer online, while Switch will have local multiplayer.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

Release: 2019-07-18 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I’ve never played the older Ultimate Alliance games, but I’m ready to give this one a try! I need to have more of my Marvel fill, so I’m hoping this will be good.
I’m not particularly hyped for it and I could have waited for it, but yeah this will probably be my chance game of the year. So far at least.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Release: 2019-07-29 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Not really a big fan of SRPG’s, but I’d like to give Fire Emblem a real chance. So why not try this one? If I don’t like it I can always sell it again, but I think it looks at least a bit interesting. At least enough to give it a try.

Astral Chain

Release: 2019-08-30 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Probably the biggest surprise for me so far this year! When we where first shown the trailer, I got butterflies in my stomach. The art style, scenery and the feeling about everything… I and many others thought it was a Xenoblade sequel.
But it turned out to be PlatinumGames new and exclusive Nintendo Switch game, which was still a great surprise. PlatinumGames are great with action games, so I think it will be fantastic. Really looking forward to this one!

Dusk Diver

Release: 2019-??-?? | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Saw a trailer for this game some time ago and it looked pretty neat. It’s an action RPG, that takes place in Taipei apparently. I liked what I saw of the trailer, it was recently announced to be released in both Europe and US both physically and digitally.
I don’t really know what more to say about this game, go check out the trailer for yourselves. The game will be released on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in the west.

Well that’s it for this time! Will probably make a new list after E3 is over, when we hopefully have some more dates on a couple of games.
And hopefully some surprise announcements.

Project Prelude Rune has been canceled

My fears have come true. When it was announced that Hideo Baba had left Square Enix I feared the worst for Studio Istolia and their game “Project Prelude Rune“.
And today the death sentence finally came. Square Enix has confirmed via USgamer.

“Following evaluation of various aspects of Project Prelude Rune, development of the title has been canceled,” a Square Enix representative said. “Studio Istolia is no longer in operation and we have been taking appropriate steps to assign studio staff to other projects within the Square Enix Group.”

So I’m really bummed out now, like seriously. Was so looking forward to a Hideo Baba game that wasn’t a Tales of game and a game he might have gotten a bigger budget for. But sadly dreams do end, I’m just a bit surprised at how hard this affected me.
Sure we just got a teaser trailer for the game, but if what we saw was the kind of style the game would have it was full of color and beautifully cellshaded.

New trailer for Final Fantasy VII remake

I’m a few days late with these news, but about three days ago Square Enix released a new trailer from their upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake. It’s no secret that I am not a big Final Fantasy VII fan, but this remake has has really hyped for the game.
Much more than the original game ever hyped me. Check out the trailer for yourselves!

I think it looks really good! I’m I am very eager to try this game, for me personally I have nothing against this being more of an Action RPG than a turn based one.
If it’s just as fluid and fun as it is in Kingdom Hearts III, I know that at least I am going to have a very good time with the battles. I’m really digging Aerith’s design, she looks really, really good. Even Cloud looks better than he did in the 2015 reveal.
Sure I’ll miss his banana hair buy what can you do? I know some people really liked his more sickly design, but it didn’t really resonate with me.

2015 Cloud: “This guy are sick”. – Aerith original Final Fantasy VII

Square Enix is going to share more news with us in June when E3 is, I really hope they’ll show more of the characters. I am a bit eager to see Tifa, mostly due to me thinking she’ll get a bit of a redesign… Since I don’t think her original will work with today’s climate on the internet regarding certain designs.
It does feel a bit weird to be hyped about FF7, I wonder if this is what people felt like when they waited for the original to be released.

My biggest hope is that we’ll get some parts that are playable with Zack in this remake, since there seems to be no plans to make a Crisis Core HD. Doesn’t really seem to fit in with the whole way FF7 is going, but then again… If that erases Genesis from FF7 lore that might not be such a bad thing. So tell me. Are you looking forward to this remake?
Why? And why not? I’d love to hear your opinion on it.

Bloodstained finally has a date!

At long last Koji Igarashi and the team behind Bloodstained has revealed the release date of the game! And thankfully we will not have to wait all that long!

Bloodstained: Ritual of The Night

After god knows how long we will be able to play this game. I’ve waited so long for this, it has been on my lists for upcoming games I’m looking forward to many times now.
The game will be released on June 18th. But the Nintendo Switch version will be release a little bit later, on June 25th. So not all that long.

So enjoy the trailer and see how much they have improved the game. I think it looks really good, but then again I’m one of those who never had problems with how the game looked like from the start. But I do appreciate that it looks prettier now.

I’ll be taking my chance with the Switch version. I pledge $60 on Kickstarter to get the PlayStation 4 version physically, but I think I’m gonna leave that one unopened. Plus I ordered Bloodstained: Curse of The Moon for Switch from Limited Run Games, would be nice to have both physically for Switch.

Äntligen Nördag: Paket med grön kraft

Då var det äntligen dags! Det första riktiga klippet från Äntligen Nördag är uppe! Förra videon var mer en presentation av mig och Hans. Eftersom vi inte har en separat blogg till Äntligen Nördag så lägger jag upp det här på min sida istället.
Så har man ju någonstans att kunna posta lite extra om det. :)


Kolla gärna in våran YouTube kanal Äntligen Nördag för att se flera videos. Dock är de lite äldre och vi kallade oss Skånespelarna då.

Jag slänger även in presentations videon här så ni kan se den!

Barbie MILF Princess Of The Twilight!

Yeah, guess I’m back to write in English. I’ve missed it. So we’ll see how many posts I’ll do, if it will be more I’ll change the stuff of my site to English too.

I found this video yesterday that I thought was funny. It’s buy an group calling themselves Nanowar of Steel. They are apparently a comedy heavy metal band.

The melody in itself is pretty good. But he lyrics are just.. Yeah. Haha.
Just check it out! It’s so weird.

Nu blir Billy utbytt!

Billy, Billy, Billy… Billy boy. Billy bokhylla.
Kär hylla har många namn som jag hört att ingen någonsin sagt förut.
Men är ni som mig och samlar på TV-spel, filmer eller annat smått och gott så är chansen stor att ni har bokhyllor från Ikea, för det är typ det enda som erbjuds, så vidare man inte vill slänga ut enorma summor på special designade bokhyllor.

Billy bokhyllan runt 2016. Vad lite grejer det var det!

Jag har inte haft det bästa tycket för Billy bokhyllorna, det har väl lite med min pedanta/OCD-liknande beteende av att inte ha mina spel intryckta längst in i bokhyllan.

Visst är bilden ovan en äldre bild på Billy bokhyllorna, men det var den bästa bilden jag hade på dem framifrån. Även om de var lite tomma just då, det har ju tillkommit en del de senaste 3 åren.

Helsike vad PlayStation 4-delen har ökat och Nintendo Switch har ju tillkommit också. Känns lite kul att se nu när man pillat runt.

Billy bokhyllan runt 2018. Som jag sagt så många gånger tidigare så hatar jag djupet i Billy bokhyllan.
Den är ju dubbelt så djup som spelen är. Så jag fick göra egna stoppare för att ha spelen i kant med bokhyllan, som jag tycker ser mycket bättre ut. Är väl kanske inte en stor grej, men det har stört mig något otroligt.

Vad skulle man göra? Är ju inte som att Ikea har några bättre alternativ, dessvärre. Fast dom har ju tydligen haft stora bokhyllor förr i tiden som var mer anpassade för CD-skivor och DVD-filmer sett till djupet. Varför tar man bort det? :(

Efter mycket letande så såg jag folk på Reddit som postade bilder på sina bokhyllor och de hade ett perfekt djup för spel. Precis som jag alltid önskat mig.
Men det verkade ju vara något som var exklusivt för USA, vilket gjorde mig ledsen.
Men tack vare en person där fick jag veta vad dom kallades på Amazon, så jag kollade runt lite och hittade där. Var rätt dyrt dock. Men jag lyckades hitta en återförsäljare i Sverige som hade dom, så jag blev väldigt glad och beställde hem två stycken direkt!
Tur att man kan ta det på avbetalning… Hehe… ^_^;

Så här är dom! TecTake bokhyllorna med ett betydligt bättre och nästan perfekt djup för spelsamlare som inte tycker om att ha sina spel intryckta längst in i Billy bokhyllor!

Jag älskar dessa bokhyllor alltså! Dem är precis vad jag alltid önskat mig, lite drygare att sätta ihop än en Billy bokhylla och lite dyrare också… Men för mig så kändes dom väldigt värt det. Dem har ungefär halva djupet av en Billy, så det blev mycket plats kvar i TV-rummet. Eller snarare det ger verkligen illusionen om att det blev mycket mer plats kvar. Jag kommer absolut köpa en till när jag väl flyttat, så är jag helt framtids säkrad sedan. Mer eller mindre åtminstone, nu ska man bara vänta på att få en ny lägenhet också, det är ju något som kan ta väldigt lång tid…
