< 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!

on 26 April 2018

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

Are exclusives anti-consumer?

in Gaming Discussion on 14 April 2019

Only if playing the game would suddenly require the consumer to spend a significant amount of additional money to play it. For example, a game that was promised as a multiplatform title that people had bought systems for was no longer coming to some of those systems, effectively either gating some people out of playing the game or forcing them to buy another system to play it.. ...

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Official Story Reveal Trailer

in Gaming Discussion on 14 April 2019

Well, it's EA so I don't trust anything about this game until it releases, but if nothing else getting Respawn to make this is probably the best possible option for EA at the moment. Titanfall 2 was awesome, so at least for the moment I'm cautiously optimistic about this one....

Should video games play themselves (easy mode for Sekerio?)

in Gaming Discussion on 11 April 2019

Sekiro doesn't need an easy mode, but having one wouldn't in any way take anything away from the game. People who want to play the standard, developer-intended way could still do so, and others who can't play the game that way would have a chance to play the game through too. FromSoftware is in no way obligated to put an easy mode in the game as they are working with a specific vision in mind for...

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.
