First off, don’t skip the opening.

And second, I guess that’s where the budget for this week went. Because some of DIO’s faces were a bit off.

Began a Dungeons and Dragons quest with my crew of friends and my week was slightly busy. Normally, these Jojo episodes have me hype every Friday but for whatever reason, I keep posting them late in the week. But either way, we’re reaching near the end and they better end Part 3 with a teaser for Part 4. Oregairu is chugging along nicely with Yukinoshita remaining my favorite and DxD is approaching amazing levels of stupidity.

This week’s song is that of a boss that can be encountered early in the game or later in the game inside the Catacombs. Pinwheel is a deceptively easy boss with a lot of lore implications going on. Most of it involves stealing the necromantic abilities from another boss further in that area and how it was cursed with having 3 separate entities rolled up into one. To be more clear, a father, mother, and son were merged into a single creature with the 3 masks and 3 sets of arms symbolizing this. Apparently the father of this family tried to resurrect his family but failed miserably. And yes, you’re hearing “I’m so sorry” being whispered constantly.

I’m not sure how to feel

Dark-Souls-01

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.

It begins

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

Dark-Souls-01

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.
