I’m not sure how to feel
So coincidentally, Bethesda released their teaser-trailer for Fallout 4 this afternoon and if stuck with me, god knows why, for a while, you’d probably understand that I’m a big fan of the Fallout series. However, it’s been 7 years since I’ve played Fallout 3, the first open-world/FPS style entry in the series, and I’ve formed different opinions of the game since then. I still love New Vegas to death however, and I’d actually call it one of the greatest RPG’s of the decade for its story, gameplay choices, and the near ultimate freedom the game lets you approach a situation with. Fallout 3 was made by Bethesda, the new owners of the Fallout franchise after buying it from Black Isles while New Vegas on the other hand was made by Obsidian, with members of Black Isle being its crucial development members. See as how I’m not foaming from the mouth about Fallout 4 finally being announced and how I just differentiated the two studios, you can easily judge my reaction.
I barely had one.
The graphics were somewhat lackluster for me, and I’m not even that big on graphics in general. Even before the teaser-trailer dropped, I saw reports saying that the game would utilize PS3-360 graphics. That alone sullied the coming news for me and to make this news even less exciting, I saw the Washington Memorial, putting the setting back in the DC area (although I hear it’s actually set in Boston). If anything, Bethesda going back to their flawed East Coast setting is what’s really making me sad since we could have far more interesting places to visit in this next-gen craze and shed more light in post-apocalypse America.
So to match this feeling of semi-optimism knowing that Fallout 4 is coming and my dying hopes for the game because Bethesda in charge of it, here’s the theme of Dark Souls’ hubworld, Firelink Shrine. Wayward travelers and ones who were beckoned by fate rest here where they calm themselves before trekking out again into the bleak, unforgiving world to die and die again.
I don’t even need to add too much “review” like words to this. This part of Part 3 has people that have been waiting for longer than I’ve been alive to see animated. DIO doesn’t disappoint but they did cut off the part where the car runs over a busy street filled with people (with quite literally Waldo being in the accident) but understandably, this is airing on national television.
Enough of that though, get your tickets kiddies, the Last Train Home is now preparing for departure.

Here we go
I think we have a month proper before Part 3 ends and I’m expecting a Part 4 announcement around that time. It’s been nothing but playing League and UMvC3, especially the latter where I recently entered a small-time tournament with a buddy of mine and we both made it in the Top 5. Surprising though, seeing we beat everyone that wasn’t at least playing like the pros did. I personally lost to a Zero May Cry Team while my friend lost to someone with pro-like tech and combos, but very weak defense and execution. The person who did end up winning was a Morrigan-Doom player so yeah, no surprises there.
Saltiness aside, the season’s end is coming to a close and Oregairu is stepping it up real high in terms of stuff going on. DxD is just a reckless trainwreck that didn’t surprise me but come on, at least attempt a decent fight scene sooner or later.
We finished off Demon’s Souls last week and we’ll be plunging into Dark Souls. To start us off, here’s the track that plays during its opening cinematic where the narrator details how the world was ruled by Dragons and then shaped by the Gods who conquered them.
Bloodshed before the finale
We have one more week until the final arc begins, and it will take the entirety of June to cover. GET HYPE FOR DIO’S WORLD Y’ALL

ACEN is done and gone and I’ve got to find something to do with myself for the next few months. Whether that be Bloodborne, DMC4:SE, or a job, I pretty much welcome anything at this point that will eat up my time. Maybe I’ll get back into Pokemon but hot damn is the self-trading process slow. Jojo itself has surprisingly ended Vanilla Ice in two and a half episodes, so now it’s all nothing but DIO
We’ll be finishing off Demon’s Souls today with the final theme, One Who Craves Souls, that plays when you choose the “Bad Ending” and kill the Maiden In Black attempting to lull the Old One back to sleep. You become a part of the greatest demon and you continue this “dark age” of mankind.
Off for the weekend
ACEN is a few days away and I’m getting myself prepared for sore feet and an empty wallet with its overpriced wares but it’s all part of the experience. Other than that, it will be an uneventful week waiting in anxiety but hey, this weekly post came late so I’ll probably have only one day left.
Either way, this week’s theme is the one of the two songs that play during the credits that happens after you choose the “Good” Ending, where you leave the Old One to be tended to be the Maiden In Black and it is lulled back to sleep. The art of souls disappears and peace is finally restored in Boletaria. Here’s Return to Slumber, I’ll see you after I go broke next week.
Sho Hayami’s voice got put on Vanilla Ice while Jouji Nakata has Pucci.
I’m sort of angry I guess, Sho Hayami did something divine (no pun intended) with Pucci’s line delivery in ASB and while Jouji Nakata isn’t bad, I just really liked ASB. Oh well
