    Say, how are you doing buddy?

    well so far so good, i started The Witcher 3 a couple of weeks ago but it really hasnt grabbed me at all, i see the quality but it somehow fails to captivate my attention.

    Meanwhile i have been really hyped about Fate GOs last event, and absolutely love the new servants they added to the game (it also help they gave me a new badass version of my favorite character).

    Anyway i apologize because i never wrote the things about Disgaea 5 that i promised, i ended up leaving it for later and never did it, sorry about that, (i even forgot part of what i wanted to write about the game).

    on 11 August 2018

    Lol no worries man.
    Yeah, The Witcher looks pretty but that's it, it looks like it's boring to play.
    Well, I might change my mind whenever I play it but it does look boring.

    Rooting for you guys tomorrow.

    Thank you, hopefully our team performs as it should tomorrow.

    You guys did really well today as well but then again that has been the case for a long while now.

    on 02 July 2018

    Damn that was sad.

    on 03 July 2018

    And disgusting, that really wasnt a penalty but at the same time the Colombian players didnt help themselves by playing dirty the rest of the match.

    Anyway im gonna be rooting for you guys now.

    on 03 July 2018

    Japan yesterday (even as expected) and you guys today, the cup just lost a lot of personallity.
    Same old now, gonna avenge Japan and take Belgium out and hopefully we can beat France this time if it gets to be, would preffer Uruguay, tho, they deserve to reach the semis.

    on 03 July 2018

    Feel the same way, we need to bring the cup back to south america where it really belongs.

    Yeah, that's more like it.

    Wanna see Colombia doing well this cup.

    Yeah, same (obviously lol).

    Hard to believe Japan and Senegal are the leaders of the group but thats football for you (full of surprises).

    Knew Poland would drop the ball, lol.

    Day 1

    on 11 June 2018

    From got outplayed by Koei but at least their Samurai Souls has quite a lot more of mobility it seems.
    Also, did I see a Bloodborne-like transformable weapon there? Would be nice, that was by far the best mechanic from BB.

    on 11 June 2018

    It was his arm that transforms, also i dont agree that Nioh outplayed From (though you already knew that).

    Also i forgot to tell you but i started Disgaea and played it for a while until i realized that there is no way im playing through 3 of this games without getting burned out for a while, (they are afterall games with HEAVY investments of time), so i said fuck it and im starting D5 instead since i would much rather enjoy that one and later get back to the previous ones.

    And i also dont care anymore about getting spoiled on the special attacks from the characters of previous games (from the DLC), since i will go back to those games just for the story and character development, since the newer games are a straight up improvement in every single way.

    on 12 June 2018

    Well, enjoy D5 then.

    Finished it?

    Literally got the platinum an hour ago XD

    on 11 May 2018

    Nice! Did it last friday xD
    Do you plan to play it more after the platinum?

    on 12 May 2018

    I do want to beat it on GOW dificulty but im just exhausted at this point, i might have played the game far longer than the supposed 40 hours, heck i feel like i might have played it for 80 or more hours thanks to Nifelheim and Muspelheim.

    Getting the blades of Chaos gave me goosebumps it was such an amazing moment, so well done in every way... the music, the pacing, the reveal, the dialogue and it culminates into some epic gameplay full of adrenaline.

    The Stranger fight at the beggining has to be one of the best boss fights and opening acts on any game ever, just absolutely loved it (i fougt him bare handed) and the moment i gave him a full combo and with my last punch i sent him flying only to see him crash agaisnt 3 trees and shatter all of them i knew i was in for a very special ride.

    The Dragon boss was another highlight, the moment it appeared i was so blown away from a graphics and technical perspective that i legit felt i was playing on a PS5 all of a sudden, ("so this is what PS5 is gonna feel like, huh" was my first thought when i saw him on the elevator), and the way you take him down... that entire sequence and how Kratos ends up posing in front of its mouth when it dies, thats gonna be really memorable.

    The game is filled with stuff i could spend time just talking about (like the reveal at the end) but i guess i will cut it short here, and just say that it got robbed because this does deserve that 95 on metacritic and even that 96 it was slowly getting to.

    on 12 May 2018

    I'm asking it because there is something you maybe still did not do, if you think it's ok I'll tel you where to go so you won't know what it is before it happens.
    I don't want you to get spoiled of that.

    on 13 May 2018

    You mean the true ending that you get by going home? Because i got that days ago.

    on 13 May 2018

    Yeah, that.
    How did you know about it?
    Anyway, now that you knoa, that was one of things I wanted in this game, Thor and the Mjolnir.
    Kratos had ice and fire weapons, I was expecting him to take the Mjolnir to be his eletriic one, but it'll be a GoW 5 thing.
    I'm glad they at least shown it, tho, looks beautifil.
    I dunno if you know but Magni and Modi were destined to survive the Ragnarok and inherit the Mjolnir from Thor. Magni was actually supposed to the the strongest (raw power) Aesir ever.
    The Aesir are quite changed in the game personallity wise than they were in the mythology, I've been arguing with a friend about it and we have two theories.
    The first being that they legends were lies manipulated by the Aesir, which the games hints a lot, Odin keeps trying to reshape history to his liking and that makes a lot of sense, as the powerful and victorious are the ones that write the history.

    PLEASE ONLY READ THE NEXT PARAGRAPH IF YOU PLAYED AT LEAST GOD OF WAR 3, OTHERWISE THERE ARE SPOILERS

    The second is that the pandora's box effect has reached them and changed them like happened in Greece. We know Kratos got there and maybe Athena too (not clear if was just his mind, even as her appearence was the stony athena she used to incorporate statues instead of her spiritual one, but we know she still existed by the end of 3).

    Be what it is, it's really cool Kratos is reshaping the mythology, he is getting to build a mythology of his own hahaha. Cory also said he has 5 more games planned, and we (me and my friend) expecting it to mean they will also go on the Egyptian mythology as they were really wanting to do it too, and they even showed it exists and has gods in this game too.
    There is a lot to discuss about the game and the series future, a damn lot, this franchise has a really cool power of making me thinking about it and what it can be nonstop when they are to and after they release a new game.
    It was one of the very best games I played in my life, even as beating TLoU on Survivor+ made me rethink if it deserves to be under GoW, both are so powerful, so good, so interesting, so masterly crafted, and so different...

    on 13 May 2018

    Atreus literally tells you to go home when you get the first ending, so thats how i knew.

    So you guys are already theory crafting, well thankfully i did got the platinum for GOW 3 as well so i do know about Pandoras box and what it did to the greek goods, however i do not think for one second that its reach extends to other mythologies, simply because it would complicate things and compromise things far too much, (especially if they keep going to other mythologies).

    The way i see it and the way it seems to be presented is that even though every mithology exists in the world at the same time, they are all encapsulated in their geographical locations, and dont seem to be affected or concerned at all with mithologies that exist in other parts of the world, as to the Aesir being different from the original myth i think that is to be expected (why should they follow the myth 1 to 1?), they are obviously taking their liberties with the mythologi as well, (just look at Loki i think that says it all).

    I never expected the game to be completely accuarate to the real myth, i think when you are writting fiction and you are basing yourself on an already established and known lore (like Norse mythology), you need to give yourself some liberties in order to truly surprise the audience (like the loki reveal) otherwise some people would know what to expect and it wouldnt be as exciting or interesting.

    on 13 May 2018

    That's not it, their personallities are widely different, that's the thing, not that they need to be following the mythos religiously, but why change their personalities, it's likely to do with something they want to on purpose.
    Well, they know about each other existences, Baldur talk to Kratos on he knows on how better them think they are, mimir knows about Zeus, Egypt gods and all that (so do Odin).
    They do not influence each other on purpose but Kratos opening the Pandora's box was out of their expectations, maybe it did affect the Aesir.
    For some reason Odin decided to screw the Valkyries and bring the dead back to Midgard after Kratos moved there... why? Maybe he became corrupted, maybe Kratos getting there changed his Ragnarok profecies and he decided to act.
    The point is, Kratos is there, a Greek god is changing the Norse mythology, they can affect it.

    on 13 May 2018

    Nothing in the game itself ever implies that the gods personalities have changed, you are just taking the real mythos comparing it to the one in the game, seeing the differences and assuming that there must be a reason why they are different (like pandoras box), but the reality of it is that Norse mythology is nowhere near as popular as Greek and most people dont even know who the heck Baldur, Magni or Modi even are, (much less what their personalities are) and that gives Santa Monica all the freedom in the world to do with the characters whatever they want.

    Also i think its very clear that stuff that happens in one mythology doesnt affect the other ones, Kratos opening Pandoras box has no effect on Norse Mythology, and Ragnarok happening will surely not affect Egyptian Mythology.

    Why do i think this? simple really... Kratos while killing all the gods of the Greek pantheon caused all sorts of plagues and disasters that went on to practically destroy all of the Greek civilization, yet in Norse Mytholgy there is no evidence of any of this plagues or disasters (like the giant flood) ever reaching the Norse Mythos, so why the heck should we asssume that the effect of the Pandoras box ever reached them?.

    Of course Kratos moving into Norse Mythology is something completely different, since then he can indeed mess with the events of that "world", and its obviously something that the Gods can not ignore.

Originally on the PS2, later got a HD upgrade on the PS3 and 360 but it had a lot of problems until it got patched (well the PS3 version the 360 never did). Im looking forward for the PS4 version at 4k with VR support next month....
