Legend of Zelda

Did not realize how short this game was. I enjoyed my time with it. Going to wait a little while before I go back and complete the second quest. I might pick up Zelda II over the next few days, but that could lead to me trying to complete the whole series, and that could be a costly venture. I've played the majority of the games in the series, but it would be nice just to slog through them all again.

Farewell 2012

Well it is 2013, and that means a whole new year of gaming is ahead of me. Started off this year playing a lot of Call of Duty Black Ops II. I am really digging the campaign so far. The changes they made to the story structure is a welcome relief and I look forward to playing that more. I picked up The Legend of Zelda for my 3ds, and I am almost finished it already. I may tackle the second quest as I hear that is where the true challenge is. Other then that I have been playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown off and on. I love personalizing my characters with the names of my friends. I know it is corny, but every time one of them dies I feel bad, and hover over the load game option probably longer then I should. I have Sleeping Dogs in the hopper ready to go after I complete the other two games, and I am picking away at Kid Icarus: Uprising. Demon's Souls is out on the PSN next week, and I think I may go back to it. I played the hell out of it when it first came out, but I do not believe I gave it its fair shake. Since Dark Souls, I have a greater appreciation for those types of games, and I want to give it another crack.

2012 has been an odd year for me. It marked a full year since my Mom passed, and I am struggling constantly with the idea that I am wasting my life. Mom died young, 58. I don't want that to be my fate, well, no one does, but you never know when your time is up. I finished my second degree this past year, and I am now a certified Teacher. I have not had one sub day yet, and that is hella discouraging. Because of this I picked up a job at Starbucks. I am digging it, but I am finding it hard to juggle work, and home life. I guess it means less time for video games, but that comes with territory.

Prepared to Die (spoilers)

Tutorial Complete.

Class Chosen: Pyromancer

Item Chosen: Master Key

After watching Giant Bomb's Quick Look of Dark Souls and the first part of IGN's Dark Souls' marathon I found the tutorial rather easy. Lucky for me I stopped watching shortly after that section. One thing that I did stumble upon though was the giant crows nest and the eggs asking me for something warm and something soft. Puzzled I continued on my journey past the tutorial area and rested at the first Bonfire in Lordran and decided to spend some souls increasing my Endurance and Dexterity. Flying by the seat of my pants. (More to Come)

Call me crazy...

As part of Giant Bomb's blog initiative...jesus.. I can't believe I am saying this... I will be blogging my way through Dark Souls so other users can follow along, make fun, add suggestions, or just laugh at my misfortune. I will try and get a few videos at key stages of the game to demonstrate my frustration. Should be a laugh... any thoughts?

Skyrim vs Dark Souls

Who cares. Despite the fact that these games are completely different there has been a strange lust for people to try and pick sides and defend their game. Of course, they are both dark fantasy so comparisons are gonna be inevitable, but the amount of tension people bring to either side is pretty sad. Hell, why can't we all celebrate the fact that there are two high profile dark fantasy games coming out this Fall? Personally, I can not wait to play the hell out of these two games and then make criticisms/compliments about these games. As a gaming community we must celebrate the fact that we live in a time where dark fantasy games are considered High Profile and have massive budgets thrown behind them. Frankly I contribute this success to the Lord of the Rings movies but hey, that's another blog post for another day.

Too Mundane

I believe that there is a tremendous amount of hype surrounding this game...  You have to give Dennis some credit for putting his reputation on the line like that it takes some serious bawls.  I played the demo thought it was alright but I doubt I would invest time and money towards this experience because there are better games to be playing.
