All About Kravyn81
Aw, man. I'm excited I received this game from Amazon today and anxiously dove into it. After much deliberation and hemming and hawing after researching this game through professional/user reviews and gameplay videos, I decided to buy it. I've been looking for a "serious," mature, deep RPG and this seems to be it.
God bless Amazon. I was able to score the Enhanced Edition for less than $20 (compared to GameStop's overpriced $30+ after tax). It arrived today and is in pristine condition as well containing all the extra stuff such as a high quality mini-guide that I'm assuming is a walk-through for the entire game, a fold-out map and, to my surprise, the game's soundtrack as well which I was not aware was included.
I'm liking it despite some early frustration which, in all honesty, was all my fault because I was trying to "rush" or play the game faster than you should. This is a game that requires due diligence in execution. It rewards "smart" playing and preparation over hack 'n' slash. I knew this going in which is part of the appeal I found about the game. But due to a severe lack of these types of games, I was trying to play it differently than is optimal.
First-hand impressions are positive. As I said, this isn't your typical hack 'n' slash, dungeon crawler; but a much more methodical experience. Quick example: You cannot drink a healing potion once you've engaged in combat. Any potions and status effects must be drunk/prepared ahead of time. You must coat your sword in various oils which have different effects towards different enemies. You have two main swords to contend with; one for human enemies and the other for creatures.
It's very "in-depth" without feeling overwhelming, at least to me. So it allows a true sense of accomplishment after every battle because you're only going to survive if you use your head and plan first. It's very much a thinking-man's RPG if such a thing exists. If I have piqued your interest at all, don't hesitate to check out the review here at the site since that's where I started.
So that's what I'm currently playing. I haven't played BioShock Infinite in over a month. I just kinda lost interest; not that it's a bad game or anything but I'm weird like that
What's going on? Where is all this support for Sony coming from all of a sudden? I thought it was "cool" to hate on Sony. What gives? How come in GameSpot's Twitter battle Sony is leading with a commanding 86% to MS's 14%? Where are all the snarky, loud-mouthed, obnoxious Xbox 360 zealots verbally masturbating about how superior Microsoft is???
What happened over the course of an hour this morning in Washington? Did all those Microsoft lovers drop off the face of the Earth?
Oh where have all the Xbox fanboys gone? I mean, it seems as if just yesterday (and for that matter, the SEVEN YEARS leading up to today) that people have been ceaselessly dragging Sony's name through the mud; unmercilessly critiquing every little thing they did and lambasting them as incompetent, pompous monkeys that were out of touch with their customers, all the while lifting Microsoft up on a pedestal as though they were the Second Coming of Christ and were beyond mortal transgressions.
WHERE ARE ALL THOSE PEOPLE NOW?????
Oh, they're voting for Sony apparently.
Today, all of a sudden, Sony seems to be "cool" again.
Huh...isn't that funny.
Anyone interested in joining up to play? I've got another friend who will be joining me tonight; it will be both our first time checking this game out. So I was kinda hoping that I could wrangle in some more people from the site here.
I don't play much online but this game seems like it could hold some promise. I'm not trying to form a clan or any long-term commitments so don't worry. I'm just asking if a few people would also be interested in joining my friend and I. Let me know if you are.
My Recent Reviews
A small tribute I felt like making. Hopefully it will make everyone pause and reflect about what happened.
Just something I made real quick. Dedicated to all the obnoxious fanboys out there.
