< Darashiva updated his status:

The final part of the History of Metal Gear-series is now finished and up on the site. You can check it out here if you wish: http://www.vgchartz.com/article/392859/history-of-metal-gear-kojimas-farewell-ground-zeroes-amp-phantom-pain/

I'm still considering writing an article to wrap up the whole series, but we'll see if that happens.

< Darashiva updated his status:

Here's the next part of the Metal Gear retrospective. Only two more articles to go on this one. http://www.vgchartz.com/article/277755/history-of-metal-gear-a-quick-detour-spin-offs/

Did you ever write that LoD article?

It's going to be a part of the Forgotten Gems articles. Haven't yet written that one, but it's on the shortlist of games I'm going to be writing about.

Probably not going to be the next one since I've been alternating between Japanese and Western games, and I just wrote about ActRaiser on the previous one.

Shouldn't be too far off though.

Finally finished the next part of the Metal Gear retrospective. Should hopefully be up relatively soon.

Love to see you keeping this avy

No reason to change it really. It is one of the best games ever after all. I might swap one day, but don't really have any need to at the moment.

You better not!

We'll see, but like I said, I'm in no rush to do so. I like my current one anyway.

Songs of Conquest

in PC Discussion on 18 June 2019

Well, I included it in the article about the games you may have missed from E3, so I've done my part of spreading awareness of the game. ...

What's Naughty Dog been doing this whole console generation?

in Gaming Discussion on 13 June 2019

Naughty Dog released UC4 in 2016 and UC: The Lost Legacy in 2017, so it hasn't even been two years yet since their last release. ...

How physical are you?

in Gaming Discussion on 13 June 2019

On consoles I buy mostly physical, at least 80%, probably closer to 90%, but on PC it's pretty much all digital. ...


Height: 0'0

Eye colour: Blue

Hair colour: Brown

Favourite Games: Final Fantasy-series is my favourite, with FFIX being my favourite game of all time. I like JRPG's in general, but I play almost any kind of games regardless of the genre.

Favourite Music: Rock and metal music mostly. I listen to a lot of other music as well.

Favourite Books: A lot of different fantasy books.
Lord of the Rings. Books by David Eddings have always been favourites of mine. The Witcher-series. The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. Too many others to list.

About Me: I'm a lifelong gamer, having started playing video games when I was just 3 or 4 years old, when my uncle bought me an NES that came packaged with Super Mario Bros., Tetris and Nintendo World Cup, as well as 4 controllers and a multitap. Ever since then video games have been one of my most important hobbies.
