Hi! I’m an old reclusive dude who writes about games, or whatever else I feel like.
Talk about getting outside your comfort zone. This is so far outside my comfort zone that it’s on a completely different planet, with a poisonous atmosphere, crushing gee forces, with a comet heading directly for it.
Musing about the essential ingredients that go into a hall-of-fame RPG as I finally begin to replay The Witcher 3.
I think it’s about time to write that followup post to my first impressions about Elden Ring. Somewhat of a correction, because my first impression didn’t give the right impression.
Stormveil Castle and Goderick the Grafted.
I don’t want to write this, because it will make it real.
Settling into a routine.
An invitation to Roundtable Hold.
Groveside Cave and our first look at that boss.
Stormroot Catacombs, a new Prisoner character, and Fringefolk Hero’s Grave.
Stormgate and beyond.
The Tree Sentinel and Gatefront Ruins.
A small window into what it feels like to enjoy playing Elden Ring as it was intended the way I like playing it. [ED: I shouldn’t assume.]
Elden Ring is good enough, but we’re still waiting for a successor to Dark Souls 3.
I actually did finish Demon’s Souls before Elden Ring launched.
With some 8 days remaining until Elden Ring launches, it seems unlikely that I’ll finish Demon’s Souls before then, which puts me in a bit of a sticky situation.
