Yes, still alive…I think.

At least, I still have a pulse *checks it again*…A little bit faint but yeah, I have one. Reasons for my absence…were traveling without laptop, work and other inconveniences (for example, I have to search for a new apartment).

I still have to finish my nostalgia review about Neverwinter Nights. Then, I will move on with Vanillaware-Games like Odin’s Sphere (Ps2) Muramasa Rebirth (Ps Vita) and maybe later Dragon’s Crown (depends on when I get the game)

Additionally, I will do something like a little…let’s say, writing challenge. For one word a one shot. (I need the practice…) Maybe, I don’t know.

A nice hunt to all of you

Just some musings

Ah…and my laziness finally returns to me. At the worst possible moment. Just a few days before I start my venture through the exam hell and back. Fortunately (or unfortunately) it has more to do with my health than my non existent ambition to do something. (physically, If my mental state can be saved is still debatable xD). Those are as well the reasons  why I can’t update that often anymore (besides the fact that there are no new games to “review”)

I just wanted to say that I really don’t care about “game politics” and try to keep my head out of those topics. Why? Simply, because there are so many people who talk and write and discuss these topics to the gaming hell and back that I see no reason to talk about it. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m still interested in the debate, but…Let’s say there are some things that I can’t stomach anymore like the “Video Violence”- discussion. It literally makes my eyes twitch with annoyance and this can’t be good for health.

Naturally, I have heard the whole Ps 4 vs. Xbox One thing and although I don’t meddle with this whole affair of console wars…From the neutraI point of view, I have to say…Wow.

Not wow, what games!
Not wow, what graphics!
But WOW what an one-sided slaughter that was!

No offense to the people who like the Xbox, but that was…a rather one sided matter.  It’s a pity that the Xbox had to take such a blow. (or not. I won’t lie, I’m a sadistic person. Every Crub-stomp-battle in such matters makes me smile with delight, but… there is always a next generation, so as long as Microsoft is still in business and learns from mistakes, there is no need to worry)  But that is just my thought to that, more important is the fact what I’m doing next.

Well, I, maybe, analyse Pandora’s Tower and the Neverwinter Nights series and maybe, just maybe, give some food for thought about game stories and stories in general. And just maybe I’m going to say something about “Games as Art”-thing (but you know that is more a game politics matter, so…I. Must. Resist.) Don’t worry, for those topics I’m more serious…well, just a little bit.

For the rest…I wish a good hunting session and till next time.

P.S. I have to apologize for the Remember Me review…I don’t think it was as good as the others…

The awkward moment when…

…you finished far sooner than you have expected. As a lazy person, I’m now emotionally confused how something like this is possible (in the writing department, in other things I somehow manage to be on time).

*clears throat* Nevermind my psychological condition (Let’s be honest here, my mind is already beyond help.), I made up another plan concerning my next preys. I thought, since I wrote something on Black&White, I will also rant a little bit about its sequel and maybe return into the Forgotten Realms department with Neverwinter Nights (since I mentioned it in the Elder Scroll Series). Hmm…Fallout may be also interesting. And, just to add some diversity in the game-company-section, I could look back at some Bioware games.

So, my next preys are: Black&White 2, the Neverwinter Night Series and the Fallout Series and some games which I may encounter on the way through my game forest. (Like Civilisation or Assassin’s Creed)

I know those are very RPG-heavy at the moment. This is sketch more than a real plan (I’m still emotionally disturbed), so if you have something, you would like me to write about, just tell me. (Yes,  I have the Final Fantasy series on the list, but I can also do some post only dedicated to story analysis of a game or games in general, if some people want to read my thoughts about that)

So, I wish a nice hunt

Another day, another update

Well, my plan was finished quicker than expected. (I don’t really know if I should be proud of that or not. Normally, I’m a really lazy writer.) And looking at the release dates and games which come up next…Let’s say, there aren’t many games which really capture my interest for the next time.

So, that seems that this blog goes for hiatus a very long time?

No, of course not. If I have the chance to pester other people with my blog, then I will continue. (Yeah, I’m a very cruel, selfish person and I’m proud of it.)

To keep it short, I will redirect my hunt, for the time being, to older games. Let’s call it a Nostalgia-Month, if you like. Depends on when I find a new game…

My plan in the near future: The Baldur’s Gate Series, Black & White, The Elderscrolls Series and maybe some other games and spawning general story nonsense just for your amusement.

Have a nice hunt

Welcome to the World of Game Hunter

wolf-howling-at-the-moon1

I’m your host for this blog, your casual normal (albeit mostly nocturnal) gamer who hunts down all types of games and presents them to the community with his opinion and if the prey was worth the hunt.

Feel free to come into my lair and look at my trophies, may they nostalgic or new. Maybe I could interest you to get a taste of my personal opinion on different matters in games and around games. If you like my humor that tends to be sometimes as dark as the night and my sarcastic remarks, that is.

Of course, for now, there is not much to read as for now, but I promise that it will be filled with different games soon enough. Additionally, the About page provides more information about this blog such as main points why I consider a game good or bad or general information.

Here is what I’m doing right now:

Trophy in work: Bioshock Infinite (Ps3; possibly an extra post considering the Ending)
Actual hunt: Fire Emblem Awakening (3Ds), Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen DLC (Ps3)
Upcoming prey: Soul Sacrifice (Ps Vita)

I hope you will enjoy your stay and come back for more.

A good hunt for you all until next time

– TheNocturnalHunter
