About


Hello! I'm Simon, 23 years old from Finland.

I'm a big fan of video games, although I don't play regularily anymore.
Still a big chunk of what I do relates to gaming in one way or another.
My console choice of last generation is 360 and for current Playstation 4.
My favorite developers must be Bioware, Bethesda and Telltale Games for making many of
my favorites like Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Fallout 3 & New Vegas, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Walking Dead & The Wolf Among Us.
Also a big fan of Dark Souls and The Legend of Zelda franchise.

Some of my fav. TV Shows are Archer, Futurama, Ugly Americans and South Park and anime like Great Teacher Onizuka, Steins;Gate, Hajime no Ippo and Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei.
My favorite manga series are Ranma 1½, Naruto, Case Closed and Dragonball and from western comics Fables, Y: The Last Man, The Walking Dead and Spider-Man among some miscellaneous superhero albums like Superman: Earth One and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Also really got into Guardians of the Galaxy after the fantastic movie. Read through 2010 series and absolutely loved it.

I listen all kinds of music, a lot of which are video game tributes and original soundtracks.
The playlists on my profile has a ton of the music that I like.

Yeah, I knew that about the PS3, PS4 and the PS Vita’s remote-play. If anything, it just makes me wish that Sony delayed the idea of the PS Vita’s remote-play/extra controller capabilities and just made it exclusive to the PS4 instead of having remote-play be on both the PS4 and PS3. Nope. Sadly, there is no Metal Gear Solid IV port for the PS Vita or even on the US PSN store for that matter. It’d be nice to have on the PS Vita, but the only MGS news I know of is Ground Zeroes finally coming to Steam. Yes, one would assume that of Sony, but it’s not like support for the PS Vita is no longer there. Over 150 PS Vita games (with screenshots inside) You’ll still see third-party, indie and Japanese/niche games released for the system.

Honestly, I wouldn’t mind seeing more original third-party games and their ports on the Wii U. But only if they don’t turn out to be half-assed ports like they’ve been in the past. I remember having a lot of fun with Mario Kart: Double Dash on the GameCube with my family. Mario Kart 8 for me will be a must buy for me when I get a Wii U. As well as, Lego City, Zombi U, Smash Bros. Hyrule Warriors, Windwaker HD, (which I played the original Windwaker before on the GameCube) Pikimin 3, Super Mario 3D World, Wonderful 101, Zelda 2015, maybe Xenoblade and probably some others. If Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem ever gets released I’ll get that as well. Bayonetta 2 is also a possibility if I’m willing to give the series another try. I’m more a fan of Bayonetta when it comes to it’s gameplay and not it’s story. I love Space Dandy! It’s English dub, premise, jokes and opening theme are all great. I’ve actually seen a lot of people (myself included) praise it for it’s English dub where it feels like it was made to be watched that way. Speaking of anime, I saw the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. I thought it was pretty good and funny but it felt way too drawn-out and the ending was anticlimactic at least to me. I’ve also started watching The Devil Is a Part-Timer! with my brother on Netflix.

As for recent games, I’ve played and finished Deadpool (my mini-review) I also started Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Remaster for my PS Vita. I started the port of Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on my PS Vita which takes advantage of the PS Vita’s gyroscope and touchscreen/rear touch-panel. I also started the Action RPG Drakengard 3 which hasn’t impressed me much so far. The combat is good but it’s pretty much repetitive wave after wave of the same enemy like in a Dynasty/Samurai Warriors game. The toilet humor that they’ve added to the game also has me rolling my eyes. The English voice work on some of the characters I’ve seen so far is good but it’s not great. Unless it’s Christina Vee’s and Mela Lee’s voice who are exceptional at what they do. Lastly, I picked up Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut again for the PS3. It's a campy Japanese psychological horror game. It's also my favorite game of it's kind next to Murdered: Soul Suspect, Alan Wake, and ObSCure: The Aftermath. I love the games soundtrack, eccentric characters and story, and it’s also open-world with driving and reminiscent of early Resident Evil gun gameplay/mechanics. It’s also not that scary for a psychological horror game (since it’s campy) so if you’re interested, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is currently on PlayStation Plus as the PS3’s “free” game on PSN in the US this month.

You’re right about that. But flying still limits the amount you need to be crossing the water and in battles/surfing the water. I wasn’t saying that it makes crossing the water irrelevant altogether. I was just saying that by using “Fly” you don’t need to cross it as much to get to most places you’ve visited before. However, with the new feature and by using “Soar” in Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby it allows you to go anywhere in the Hoenn region and to even other places. Yeah, I can see that getting annoying but with so many ways to travel and especially now with “Soar” I’m not completely bothered by it. I was interested in Remote Play with my Vita/PS3 until by just pairing it with my PS3, the Vita itself and connecting it to my Wi-Fi router and the same Wi-Fi connection my PS3 uses it wasn’t enough. The amount of games that can be played via remote-play between a PS Vita and PS3 is limited and leaves a lot to be desired. So even If I got remote-play to work with my PS3/Vita I wouldn’t really use it much. I’ll wait until I get a PS4 for Remote-Play. Persona 4: Golden was one of my main reasons to get my PS Vita but I still had more games in mind.

There’s always going to be people who’ll pick up the game, but I don’t think that everyone who has a vested interest/researched it would. I’m not surprised about people picking up popular franchises like Smash Bros. or Capcom fighting games more than once. Especially Street Fighter which seems like it has a new “Super Ultra Amazing Hyper EX Edition” every few months or every year which is why I stopped being interested in them after Street Fighter II but we’ve talked about our favorite/least favorite fighting games before. Not much more to say on the subject either. When I first picked up and had a PSP I got it for Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core. Great game, but ridiculously short. As well as for some other games I had an interest in beforehand. Most of the PSP’s titles can be found on PSN and as such are playable on the PS Vita. Games like Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, etc. appeal to a wider audience than niche Japanese games. I’m aware that the PSP wasn’t excessively Japanese games just like the PS Vita is in some instances, but it was comprised mostly of Japanese games.

I’ve just seen people who won’t even take the time to research the system/games or only believe the PS Vita is exclusively an indie game machine. Sony has already made it known that they don’t plan on supporting the system with any more first-party games unless it comes from their Japanese studio for games like Gravity Rush or Freedom Wars. When it comes to lacking mass-appeal games, the PS Vita reminds me of the Wii U and it’s third-party titles and lack thereof. Not that it really needs them to be successful to be honest. We’ve still got plenty of time so who knows what else will be released… The only thing I’d personally wish for on the PS Vita is PS2 digital classic support. PSNow just doesn’t cut it for me. I don’t see why it hasn’t happened the PS Vita could obviously handle playing PS2 games digitally. With PS Vita game digital install’s they’re over a gig but not with physical copy installs it’s kilobytes/megabytes in size. I still haven’t met a physical copy that installed and took up 1GB of space or more. Well, they just barely released dynamic themes with the PS Vita’s latest patch/update so it’ll take time to get more. I also love being able to suspend/open up many apps as well on the PS Vita. Even with limited folder space it’s still better than nothing. I’ll agree that PSN’s “User Interface” could be better but it works for what I need it to do. I like the PS Vita’s “User Interface” more than I do the PS3’s/PSP’s and that’s why I also like the Xbox 360’s more than the PS3’s.

Alright, here's my reply to your other reply. This time I took a screenshot of it because it became too large once again for a single comment. Granted, I could have split it up into two comments, but I felt like i'd rather not to save both of us some time.

Haha. Now you just need to get Criminal Girls when it releases and import Bullet Girls which is still in Japan! emotion_awesome

I also haven't played any of the Hatsune Miku games. I'll be playing Persona 4: Dancing All Night when it's released for the PS Vita though. Welcome to the dark side of the force... I mean, Team PlayStation Vita. Yeah, you should be fine with the 8GB memory card for now. As far as I'm aware, the most space you'll be using it for digitally is 4GB's and that's for Escape Plan if you end up playing it. And the lowest will be TxK taking up like 103MB's of space. The rest of the digital games will take up at least 1.3GB, 1.2GB or even 2GB's individually. Retail physical copies will take up even less space just like they've always done on consoles.

Well, you asked for a "Top 10 most essential Vita experiences" list, and I wasn't really going for a "Top 10 of all-time/favorite list". I'd put Freedom Wars somewhere around there though. Even if I still hold Persona 4: Golden more dear to my heart. I still haven't played Tearaway but it's a good Vita exclusive that shows off most of what the PS Vita can do with the tech inside of it. I have Souls Sacrifice from a PS+ "free" deal but no, I haven't downloaded it/installed it to play it.

I also haven't played Danganronpa either but it's mostly like the Phoenix Wright games or Virtue's Last Reward/9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors with it's premise. You're solving trials and getting to know the other characters. I'd say that a 4GB/8GB PS Vita Memory Card is great for physical retail copies, but I'd upgrade to at least a 16GB memory card for all those digital games just to be safe.

Honestly, I don't have a favorite Pokémon generation I just enjoy playing the games. Yeah, I also saw that whole “has too much water” and made jokes like “Assassin’s Creed: 4 Black Flag has too much water” or “H20 has too much water”. To me, complaining about a game that always had water in a review is such a silly complaint. I distinctly remember playing Pokémon Yellow on my Gameboy Color and having it take several minutes to just save the game every single time. The premise behind Freedom Wars is that you have a 1,000,000 life long prison sentence to get rid of. This can be accomplished by completing missions that come along, or by donating resources to the Panopiticon of your choosing (which is where you live and what you choose at the start) doing both of these will knock a lot of years off of your sentence. But yeah, it’s an Action RPG and so far it’s been a pretty good game but I’m still getting into it so I haven’t played much of it yet. The game also features character customization, different ranks which improve your living situations, the main character also has amnesia and you have to earn back what they call “entitlements” which are things like what you can wear, how you can sleep, etc.

Even with those games that are on last-gen as well as current-gen (Murdered: Soul Suspect, Shadows of Mordor, The Last of Us, etc.) As long as the game is still playable and performs well I’ll still play it on what I have. That is until next-gen gets more exclusives and overall games that I’m interested in and last-gen’s overall support of games comes to a complete halt. So far, there haven’t been enough reasons/games for me to get a next-gen console like a PS4 or Xbox ONE. Better graphics, resolution, and improved multiplayer with even more people aren’t going to make that decision for me go any faster. I’ve already never been the biggest multiplayer gamer unless it was Starhawk or Uncharted 2 on the PS3.

To be fair, and to give credit where it is due, It’s quite interesting to see companies like FromSoftware and Rockstar still continuing to support both versions of their games on next-gen as well as current-gen with new content. But I’m still not a fan of the “8 months to a year” re-release/remaster thing going on. But like you said, agree to disagree. Agreed. However, whether it’s a remastered game or digital classic they can still be patched it doesn’t really matter either way. I’d just like to see even older games getting the remaster/re-release treatment over something that was just recently released. They don’t even have to be PS2/PS1 games just something that is older than “8 months to a year old”. Personally, I’d love to see more Xbox 360/Original Xbox games remastered/re-released. These re-releases of recently released games are starting to make me feel like it’s a new release or announcement of a new Tablet/Smartphone.

Even with the developers announcing that there will be an enhanced version later on, people might just wait, also the idea of people knowing about this inevitable release might infringe on sales. Not that many people would want to purchase a product that’ll just be “improved” and overall “better” later on and especially at a later date in time. Granted, with support still being brought to games like Dark Souls II and Grand Theft Auto 5 on both generations of consoles in special circumstances is a different story. It might just be me, and besides it being another way to make more money, it’s starting to feel like this is another option/answer to “backwards-compatibility” lacking on next-gen albeit a more expensive option. Yeah, I’ve heard the Wii U/3DS wasn’t great in it’s first year with exclusives. But then again, new generation consoles/handhelds tend to not be the greatest when it comes to games when they’re first launched. Even with the Wii U being the underpowered console to it’s competitors.

Ah, I see. Don't worry about it.

Interesting. Personally, I'm still going to give Far Cry 4 a chance and play it. I've actually started Freedom Wars on my PS Vita and my brother finally picked up Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire but I'm still waiting on Dragon Age: Inquisition. I haven't played enough of Freedom Wars or Pokemon to share my opinion on them though. I picked Alpha Sapphire and my brother picked Omega Ruby but at least it takes like 20 seconds (give or take) to save over the 1 minute or more it used to take in older Pokemon games on older systems so that's an improvement.

Keep in mind; I never was thinking/saying that they were “forcing” people to buy Dark Souls II (or any other remaster/remake) and/or a new console just to play it. It’s the whole “Oh this game is only 8 months to a year old. Let’s change it some and release it again!” mentality that I dislike. Either way, I don't think there's any doubting that people who have played Dark Souls 2 before on last-gen will be picking it up and playing it on next-gen again. Actually, remastering an old game like Final Fantasy X or Final Fantasy X-2 now means that they can patch it if there is anything wrong with the game. I remember playing Persona 3 FES digitally that I got off PSN and hearing that it could corrupt saves and had graphical issues. And then I found out the problems that were causing this weren't happening in my game and so I found out that they were patched out. So even PS2 digital classics can be patched and fixed. To me, even the Halo: Master Chief Collection or Kingdom Hearts re-release made much more sense given how old most of the games are. Honestly, I’d actually take a .Hack remaster/HD Collection of the first four original games and the .Hack//G.U. series over recently released games getting the same treatment but that’s probably just me.

I'd actually have to disagree here about next-gen lacking "new" games but that's only because of personal preference and because I can still play what's released on next-gen on last-gen except for what exclusives are on the PS4 that interest me. Which are Infamous: First Light and Infamous Second Son. And the Xbox ONE has D4. I'd list Dead Rising 3 here but that's also on PC so I don't really see it as a "console exclusive" anymore if it’s on something else like PC. Although I doubt even the PC I have right now can run it but I digress. I’m actually more interested in getting a Wii U than I am a PS4 or Xbox ONE right now. It’ll most likely be a refurbished Wii U from Nintendo's store for $200 but still.
