Dark Soulin my enemies >:3

So its going to be a while since I will be able to play Dark Souls due to a accute case of Skyrimitis (downloading at the moment ..... :D) , I decided to take this chance to relay my favorite PVP stories from my part:

Well I decied to kill Gwendolyn , so as you know you get to dark Anor Londo and hence you become hunted by a lot of players from the darkmoon covenant ( I think so) , since my first playthrough was throught the way of the white covenant I hardly had PVP encounters , so I wanted to quench my blade with other players souls. By this time I was right outside Dark Sun Gwendolyn bonfire but I was hesitant to go inside to beat the boss , as I was at the bonfire adjusting my magic I get kicked out of the menu due to an invasion. A smart player would´ve dashed to the boss fog , but as I said I wanted more PVP so I didn´t. As you know the central bridge was lowered , my adversary activated it .... so I told myself: " Fine let him come to me ... I got some Wrath of the god for him right here" , a minute passed and the bridge didnt move , so yeah the invader had no idea of were I was , heck I´ll go to him then. So I activate the bridge to lower it again , the bridge begins to move , but to my surprise the " you defeated " box appears .... :D I made him fall without knowing it , but I dont know if it was really my doing or he just killed himself. If the former then what a way to defeat an invader eh?

So after this victory I just went to fight more invaders , I was feeling good. Many fight latter I devised that my fights should be held on the rails inside were the painted world access is. It proved dangerous to me , but also gave me a better fighting chance against my opponents. But as you know under this circumstances you can get invaded (just like in the forest) by 2 people. So after some fights a couple invaded me , the cat and mouse game began and I lured them to the railings .... I casted my miracles and was on a great position , one of my oponents was using the stone knight shield , he was a warrior , and behind him was the spellcaster. In a rare instance of amazing team effort , the knight was blocking all my miracles and attacks while the spellcaster shot me with magic. I don´t know why , but even if I lost that battle that team effort was so cool to see , and I vow to the cunning of those 2 warriors.

My last story and my favorite just happened last night ... I was on my NG++ so after the Northern Asylum I went to the catacombs , I was clearing the place and exploring. As I reached the first bridge that you can turn (and already did by this time) I get invaded , I think to myself .... oh boy this maybe the time I can put my theory to the test .... what theory? Read on duders. I stayed were the switch was , tried to conceal my body as best as possible , then I see my enemy dashing through the stage ... he reaches the bridge and begins to cross it but he stops .... as he pauses I can imagine his thoughts "Wait a second .... the skelletons are still here ... even the fire shooting dude ... where the hell is him?" As he ponder this questions I TURN THE SWITCH .... the bridge begins to turn exposing the dark soul to the depths , he fells and I just imagine his face of "oh crap!!!!" as he plunders in to the floor and dies. Oh it was so beautifull my fellow droogiess!!!! Hollywood couldn´t have planned it better.

There you go, these are my highlights on this PVP business in Dark Souls .... so my fellow dark soulers .... what stories of defeat , victories and what not do you have to share? And yes Dark Souls is an effin amazing game!!!!!

Unplayed games update .08

Hello dudes:
 
Well waddya know , Im stocked to play the Dragon Age 2 demo , after finishing for the first time DA: Awakenings , really liked it and to my surprise I ended playing it for 20 hours 0_0 game time , that is like a full game, but I need to replay it with my dead warden (something about how you must import the game saves ... it is quite a mess , but a good reason to replay anyway). The story is nice although the characters are not quite as good as the folks in DA:O , but still they get the job done. Also downloaded Hard Corps Rising and it is a love letter to those who like Contra , and heck it was made by Arc systems so you know you will get your cool anime fix too ^_^ , the game plays like Contra except you can run and do all kinds of crazy stuff , like bullet reflection , double jump and my god .... dash , making the game a lot faster . 
 
The game gets very hard (hard like old school games) but you will have a good time with it , well I did. And depends with who you finish the game you get a small animation of the character at the credits , so there is a reason to replay the game with another character (also while loading the levels , the small story write up changes according to who player #1 is using). 
 
Also while downloading Killzone 3 single player demo , I finally finished the light levels of Super Meat Boy , boy did I felt good when doing so , but there are still more levels to play after the end and also I still need to finish up the dark worlds (I am stuck at hell , yes it is hellishly difficult) , but at the moment I am done for now. Got rid of many of the games that I was supposed to play .... didnt liked them as much (Eternal Sonata , Golden Sun , Far cry 2) so I used them  to pay in advance my copy of Killzone 3 , so less games to finish. Also tried to start Valkyrie Profile 2 and to my sadness it doesnt play like the original VP :(  leave it to the japanese to upgrade something to 3D and make utter shit out of it. Gonna try again , but I not looking forward to it. 
 
OH yeah before I forget I finished writing my script YAY!!! Sent a copy to my brother and my sister in law (boy that girl is smart) so they will tell me how it fares , and before you ask my brother has been always very critical when it comes to creative stuff , just as I am and being brothers have nothing to do with it , so I trust his critique to be fair and unbiased. Need to look for more volunteers tho. Also finishing up any unfinished chores as come Tuesday Im off to kill helgan/ISA scum ,  so I will not exist outside my bedroom.

Hello duders:
 
Finally!!!!!! T_T I finished Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne and the ending was ..... was ... lackluster :( all that effort for a very crappy ending , oh well I enjoyed the game around 70% of the time , problem is and I finally discovered what it was , the god damn dungeons , not the art style (which I loved) but the damned tendency of Megami games to have the "oh you took a wrong turn.... so I transport you back to another room , repeat the same path just dont take the wrong turn" syndrome , add that a high encounter rate and tedium sets in really fast. There nothing I hate more but punishment for exploring , and after a while you just want to end the effin dungeon so your overall enjoyment is diminished. Although I know there are more endings and such , I wont be playing this game again in a loooooooooong time.
 
So whats next? Well since Dragon Age 2 release is lurking nearby I will play Awakenings and after that have another playthrough of DA:O with an elven mage (which I already have started some time ago :P ). 
 
Well have a good week fellow bombers

Hello there dudes/ dudettes :
 
 So I havent played as much because I kinda found a job sort of .... really but not really :P , needless to say I've been busy  writing my film script , yep Im writing since I dont  like doing so it is  either the script or blogs (and we all know what is more important) , in case you wonder it is the forth version of the script and no it is not done yet. But I have indeed playing some videogames well rather 1 of them and it wasn't Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne , rather Metroid Prime 2 , the only one I haven't finished until 10 minutes ago , 96% with all creature scans :D . I love Metroid Prime they are the best in the whole of Metroid in my books. Also after playing the Killzone 3 beta I felt the need to replay Killzone 2 , so I did that and heck even got some of them trophies  (like beating Radec in less than 20 minutes) , so I am ready for KZ3. 
 
It is clear to me that my enjoyment of JRPGs is now almost non existent , including the Shin Megami games .... guess I am burnt out , by this I don't mean they are bad games is just that well , they just make things to feel like work  , not gaming , every random encounter is like "grrr enough dude cant you just end , be done with". Perhaps it is just a phase  , I hope , I still have a ton of them jap games to finish -_-U  , oh well I will try Shin Megami Nocturne again , Im far and all but  , damn dude is Nocturne D:

So I havent updated for a while and truthfully just now I finished one of the games , the one was Mad World , I really liked this one and surprisingly the story is somewhat good and decent (in quality I mean :P) , also this game is a delight to play , it may get repetitive but heck it is a brawler game so that expected. Also I got a little side tracked because during the month I had a desire to replay Red Faction (the PS2 game) , it hasnt aged that well frankly and the AI is atrocious and cheap , in comparison to Half Life 1 , the game has huge design flaws , you dont have as much fun with it as in Half LIfe 1 and while speaking of it I replayed that one too  ( the PS2 version ) and it still is as fun and cool as hell :D , shows the quality on Valve's game design. 
 
Also I already have started Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne , Im at the 40 hour mark level 60 more or less , but I dont play it all the time really , I just play it while I listen to whiskey's media podcasts , helps with the level grinding. Also being playing some of dragon age's DLC that I missed , Leliana's Song and the Witch hunt , but this one I will play it after I finish awakening.
 
So thats it for now and back to finishing those games yo

Ok finished No More Heroes .... and Im kinda of pissed off , I know the game is supposed to be super crazy and hilarious , but to skip all the story of the Last boss (well before you can select the real ending) in a fastfoward manner , I was dissappointed because I always a sucker for girls' stories specially tragic ones.... really my stomach aches of how angry I got at that lame ass excuse for "laughs" , and also I m pissed that I want to now play No More Heroes 2 , as if I didnt have too many games to play :'(  ... aside from that I really liked the game and it was a good rest from so many RPGs , somehow I still dont want to tackle Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne , but I dont want to finish all the fast games that I have to play because there are a lot of RPGS to go ... oh brother , so the options are these : either Nocturne , Soul Nomad or Eternal Sonata so fellow Giant Bombers which one is next???

Hello there dudes:
 
Well finished the first game of the second set , Lost Odyssey , didnt take as much as I expected , which was ok for me. The game is good , but it still has many of the JRPG stuff that is no longer very appealing , but it has one of the best substories I seen , Seth and her son Sed .... Seth is young but immortal but Sed is old and is her son , long story short it is very interesting , the bad part of the game (aside the gameplay which is your standard JRPG) was the ending , kinda lackluster and the things you want to know more of they are never shown ie the "Other side" of the mirrors , exactly what was the mission of Kairn and the other immortals so on etc. a shame really :'( , needless to say if you want a more traditional JRPG for your Xbox 360 give this game a spin , it has some gameplay quirks which are interesting some nice visuals and art direction , one more thing tho , I dont like the models of either Ming nor Sarah , boy those chicks carry huge boobs , so big that they dont look good , also Ming has one hedious hair style so is her costume as horrible , Sarah well one word ughh. If  they were more like Seth  , she is good looking , has a cool outfit , hairstyle and normal sized boobs ;)
 
Next game on the list ... yikes 0_0!!!! Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne , ooooh brother , that game is hard , I like the game but I don't know if I can play another JRPG so soon , even if I already took a break with the orange Box ( finished all the Half life 2 games , what can I say I love the game ) maybe I should skip it over and finish No More Heroes instead ....

Attack of the unplayed games update .02 & final 2010's blog

Hello there dudes:
 
First and foremost  Happy New Year!!!!!! I hope we all have a better year in 2011 and keep on going Giant Bombers :D
 
 
          Well finally set 1 is complete , it took longer than I expected , the guilty culprit (aside chores and hopefully a job by making some designs) was to my surprise Folklore , boy that game is long , also it has way too many japanesy game designs that I no longer want to put up with , at least n the current gen of consoles , like the "famous" LOAD STORY SECUENCE ENGINE , CUTSCENE , LOAD GAME ,  take a FEW STEPS , RELOAD CUTSCENE ENGINE , CUTSCENE .... why can't they just make 1 bigcutscene and spare us too many god damned loads and wasted minutes?????? Add to this a very slow story telling and you wont want to spend too much time playing the game , so you stop and do other things. It was an ok game , it has good graphics for a 1st/2nd generation game for PS3.
 
          Other game that I finished was Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga 2 , and although it also has the japanese game designs (really???) I was able and willing to put up with it , after all it is a PS2 gen game so those elements are forgiven , but the good thing ws that the loads times were very fast , to my surprise , I did do a lot of level grinding at the end , because I thought that the level I had at the end was enough but nope I had to lvel till lv 85. Beated it it was a good play , nostalgic in a way , also I noticed that this game is heavy with Buddhist elements (as if it wasn't ovious with words like mantra and atma) , and the end is basicly achieving a Nirvana state (sort of) ... so things worked out for the Embryon after all :).
 
         Because I ws sure that I would be worn out of heavy JRPG elements the last game of this set was Dragon Quest Swords for the Wii , in normal circumstances I would have probably not liked the game , but its simple game progression , total lack of challenge (except the end boss , which I defeated with the last riposte at the  last moment I could before I would have died with nothing to heal and the big boss attack coming ) very easy to follow story and cute designs , it was a delight , also its short duration (9 hours) was a  change from the last 2 games that I am very grateful. If interested in this game I would give it a rental or it is a perfect RPG game for a child although there are some sexy ladies here and there ;) and even if you fight with motion controls (that aren't all that precise , but that's like all motion controlled games ) the game system is better than average.
 
         Now I am playing Lost Oddysey and to my surprise I was  on the fourth disk :) so it wont be as long as I feared , played a couple of missions to re introduce myself to the gameplay , but Im still tired of so much RPG so Im going to play me some Half Life 2 , then come back to finishing my unplayed games .... set 2 here I come >:)
 
       If you are interested in my game of the year picks go to my lists , its the only one that I have , but if you wanna save some time I will tell you my #1 pick ....... roll drums.......
MASS EFFECT 2 :D its not just that I loved the game , it improved over the first one , delivered an incredible game experience and also its a game that I have played 5 time already and still I want more of it ... isn't that what a great game is supposed to do??? Make you play it a lot of times and enjoy it every time you do as if it was the first time
Well thats it for this blog and year , so have a good New Year and see you in January 2011!!!!
