Beaten games 2015: Part 1

So I thought I was going to make a little list of the games I’ve beaten so far this year and write a little something about them. I will list ten games on this list at a time, that way the list won’t be to long and I can perhaps write a little more about certain games, not sure I will though since this, will just reflect some simple thoughts about the games. If anyone wants to know more of what I think of a game, I can write in the comments. The dates by the name is the date I beat the game.

01: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition [ 2015-01-01 ]
I was never a fan of the original Tomb Rider series, but this rebooted series really clicked with me. So much that I had finished the last gen version of this game and I had to play the current gen version too. I don’t replay games that often, but this was so good. A great way to start the year.

02: Tales of Symphonia Dawn of The New World HD [ 2015-01-10 ]
In my opinion it is a much weaker game than its predecessor, but I don’t think it’s flat out bad as so many others do. I had fun with the game, Martha is great!

03: The Wolf Among Us [ 2015-01-15 ]
Bigsby is one cool wolf. I really liked the story in this game, it might not have been anything special but it was fun seeing fairytale creatures hide in our world like regular humans.

04: Super Princess Peach [ 2015-02-01 ]
Move over Mario! It’s time for Peach to kick some butt! And she sure kicked it hard. A pretty typical Mario platformer game, really nice to see Peach being the star and not being kidnapped for once.

05: Transistor [ 2015-02-22 ]
I’ve heard people say so many great thing about this game, so of course I had to try it. But I honestly don’t see why people like this game. I didn’t really enjoy it while I was playing and wanted it mostly to end, sorry folks. This was the first disappointment of the year for me..

06: Wolfenstein: The New Order [ 2015-03-08 ]
Those who might have read what I’ve written before, know I’m not a fan of FPS but I got this one recommend from a friend who also didn’t like FPS. I must say I was really surprised! I had a blast with this game, it was fun and it was pretty nice to play something else than only JRPGs. A breath of fresh air for me.

07: Wild Arms 5 [ 2015-03-22 ]
And speaking about playing only JRPG’s… I wanted to finish this game for sometime and when I did I felt a bit empty, the game starts out great but I think it slowly goes downhill from there. Don’t get me wrong it is a good game, it just didn’t reach all the way to the end for me. Still hope we’ll see a Wild Arms 6 one day.

08: Saints Row: Gat out of Hell [ 2015-03-23 ]
Chaos, mayhem and destruction. A few words to describe the Saints Row series as of late, Gat out of Hell was short, very, very short. But it game some enjoyment, like punching Satan right in the face.

09: Metroid: Zero Mission [ 2015-04-03 ]
This was actually my very first Metroid game and I really liked it. It was enjoyable from start to finish, well the Zero Mission part was a bit frustrating, but enjoyable. We’ll see if I’ll ever finish Metroid Fusion.

10: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD [ 2015-04-04 ]
Me and my pal played thought the entire game together, it was really fun I must say. This was also my very first time clearing the game, I sadly lost all interest in the original when it came to gather the Triforce pieces. I am a bit ashamed of that, but at least I finished it, this time around

Some stuff and a new banner

I’ve had wonderful time with my vacation, it was well needed. And I’ve managed to get a somethings done so that’s even better. But tomorrow its back to work, but I could definitely have had some more vacation days. Haha, well I suppose I shouldn’t be greedy. Having easter of was more than enough. The first day I was incredible lazy. I only watched TV and caught up with some shows and animes I’ve missed and it was great. Finally back on track there. Honestly I almost felt bad of how good, doing nothing was. After that it was time to finish of some games I had lying around. And that’s probably what I’ll do today, if I feel better. Came down with something yesterday, that really made me feel like shit. Vomiting and just feeling, sick. Ugh. Hopefully it will feel better later today.

There where two games I finished before I had my easter vacation, but it was so close to it so I thought I’d mention them anyway. Wild Arms 5 was a good game, much better than Wild Arms 4 but I still think I like Wild Arms 3 more personally. Better characters and I like the world more, even the fighting more actually.
The HEX-fighting system is good, but I prefer the games without to be honest.
And right now I am so sick of WA5 battle theme… Sure these things might sound like I’m pissing on the game, but I’m not. I had a very good time with the game, even if I didn’t like everything about it. Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell was a short but fun game, something that I felt I needed after a long JRPG. It is silly, it is over the top. But damn it was enjoyable, even if it was a tad short.

Next up was a game I’ve been eyeing for sometime and it was Metroid: Zero Mission. I have actually never played a Metroid game from start to finish before.
This was such a good game, it felt really great playing it and I really think I needed a game like this. Samus Aran is such a cool lady, kicking space pirates ass and doesn’t afraid of anything. (Old internet meme. Goggle it.)
And last but certainly not least! The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Me and my friend Elden have been playing some Zelda games together in the past, like
A Link To The Past, Skyward Sword and now Wind Waker HD. Such a good game, I was very enjoyable. Guess we’ll see if we will tackle more Zelda games together in future.

And now I’m going to enjoy Final Fantasy Type 0 HD, I’ve just played a few hours on it but I like it so far. I’m just starting on chapter 3. So I’m looking forward to get to know Class Zero even more. Before I leave I just want to thank my good friend Elden for making drawing me! Right now I’m using it in my banner and I really like it! But then again I do enjoy his art and if your interested check it out! He has some really cool stuff. Here is the old chibi art VS the new one, which took some inspiration from the Tales of games. With a bit of his own style thrown into the mix. Hopefully I can get him to make a new one, when I start to loose some weight. Hehe.

How am I doing?

Yeah, I think I decided to write in English from now on. While fun to write in Swedish, I just think it feels better to write in English. And I have an easier time that put some words together in English, might be strange but that’s how it is. So I’m going to redo my “Spelen jag ser fram emot under 2015” post later, since some stuff has changed and I might have forgotten to add some stuff. So therefor I’ll be updating it.

I’ve been feeling a bit ill/sick these past months, like I have no energy or just don’t have the strength to do anything. I’ve had a really hard to to motivate myself do anything, even sitting down to enjoy a game has been somewhat hard. I was missing some vitamins that made me feel tried all the time, so I’m taking them now and it is a bit better. Still not as it used to, but hopefully getting there. There are some other problems besides the vitamins, but since I haven’t talked to a doctor about those things yet, I won’t be saying anything. Its nothing dangerous at least, I can say that much. But I hope I get the held I need, so I can feel more alive again. Right now it’s almost as I only feel alive when I work, well not really but it is really hard to explain. I feel better than I did, so that’s great! =)

But I have managed to beat some games. I’ve finally made my way through
Wild Arms 5, a good game but I’m not really sure what else to thing about it. I like it, but I still think my favorite one is the third game. I like the characters, world and enemies much more in that game. It felt more alive, in a sense. At least it was better than Wild Arms 4, but I dunno. Perhaps I’m just not that into the WA series? I’ve also played Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, a fun but very short game. With a musical number and other weirdly awesomeness. I have gotten Final Fantasy Type 0 HD and I’m going to start playing it for real tomorrow after work, because after tomorrow I have about a week of from work! So that is going to be sweet! I really enjoyed the demo of Final Fantasy XV at least and I’m really looking forward to the full game.

I’m also going to start to projects, both will take some time but I will post here as soon as I have some form of results. First one is to mod a GameBoy Advance with a screen from a GBA SP, since I vastly prefer the form factor on the original GBA over the SP model. But the original screen is more or less worthless for playing with. In my memory it was much better, but then reality hit me. So I really want to get this mod done. The second one is a bit of a mod on a DualShock 4, some painting, getting it a bigger battery and stuff. But will take time since I’m not rich and can get all the parts I need at the same time, but I’m working on it. So we’ll see what will happen, but even if they are failures I’ll post about them.

På bättrings väg

Nu börjar det äntligen kännas lite bättre, så nu är man väl på bättrings väg. Mår bättre, har ingen feber som skiftar upp och ned längre. Energin och aptiten börja sakta men säkert återvända. Så i veckan som kommer, kanske jag till och med orkar att göra saker! Ska bli riktigt skönt faktiskt, men jag känner mig inte helt återställd. Är fortfarande trött och orkeslös, men det har blivit bättre. Har ju redan fått tillbaka en del av min vanliga energi och det är jag glad för, då denna helgen har jag gjort mer än bara sovit bort den.

Till och med sett lite filmer i helgen. The Intouchables (En oväntad vänskap) var en riktigt bra film, gillade den riktigt mycket. Feelgood film om en blommande vänskap, den var rolig, helt enkelt. Klicka länken om du vill läsa mer om den. Såg äntligen Edge of Tomorrow också, som jag måste säga att jag gillade betydligt mer än jag trodde att jag skulle. Hade inga förväntningar på den, men jag tyckte den var en schysst popcorns rulle, helt klart. Att den baserades på en manga var en överraskning för egen del också.
Såg även om den nya Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, den är fortfarande okej. Finns en hel del saker jag önskar kunde ändras i filmen, men delar av den är bra. Andra mindre bra, hoppas betydligt mer på uppföljaren.

Har även spelat lite helt otroligt nog! Körde igenom Transistor som man fick denna månaden på PlayStation Plus. Ett helt okej spel, har hört folk som hajpat det rätt rejält. Visst det var trevligt, men för egen del var det verkligen inte mer än okej. Nu ska jag ge mig an att testa Wolfenstein: The New Order till PlayStation 4. Gillar inte FPS[/] i normala fall, men har hört väldigt bra saker om spelet från andra som inte är större fans av FPS. Med detta så blir det en liten paus ifrån Wild Arms 5[/b] och jrpg. Kan vara lite skönt det, jo jag älskar fortfarande jrpg, men måste trycka in något annat i mellan känner jag. Det blir för mycket tårta på tårta så att säga, plus om mindre än en månad kommer ju Final Fantasy Type 0.

Under nästa vecka väntar jag på svar om jag fått en lägenhet jag sökt, så det är lite spännande. För är inte nämna att jag ska till Sci-fi Mässan i Malmö som är nästan helg, ska bli spännande att se vad man finner där. Hoppas på mycket cosplay denna gången och att jag får en massa foton, kommer lägga upp det här i sådana fall. :)

My day (with pictures!)

Well firstly this month has been slow as hell. Its been pretty boring.
And I just want it to be over, so I can get my hands on Metal Gear Solid 4 sooner!
The more I think about it, I can’t seem to find very positive stuff about this month, sure its had its golden moments, as when an old friend of the family gave me their old bike. It may not look like much but its functional and I don’t have to buy one.

Well I decided to do something different today. I decided to take pictures of some of the stuff that has had some sort of importance today. Like what I’ve been doing. This is very unlike me, I never take picture, but what the hell! I’m going to do this June 12 too.

Wild Arms Wild Arms

The first thing I did today when I got up was to boot up the PS3 and started Playing Wild Arms 1. I played for about two hours and after that I did some other tings, like watch some anime and had dinner. And I forgot to take pictures of those things. =/

When the clock was around 19,25 I decided to take my bike and take a 7-8km long ride to Willys. Why? I wanted to cola. This is probably the the dumbest thing I’ve done for cola so far. -.-

My bike Cola

Willys had and offer that I wanted to take part of. Buy 3 coca Cola company drinks and get a special Eufa Cola glass. I got this glass yesterday since my parents had bought some soda and today I bought myself and got a glass.
Which I gave to my mother since she collects special cola glasses. So she was happy. After I had gotten home I was sweaty and tired. So before I hit the shower (no pics sorry), I shaved my head completely. Ahhh, how I love being hairless.

It's a me! PlayStation 3

So not much remains of the day, right now I’m looking at my PS3 and thinking about how much I love it. I want to hug it. And I’m going to end this day by playing more Wild Arms. Thanks for taking your time to read all this. The next picture day update will be better. ^^
I hope I can afford a HDTV soon!!! Actually I hope I can afford anything soon. =)
