Halloween Event Odds and Ends


Time for a update to my Halloween Gaming Event of 2015.

It has been going quite well. Thanks to the co-op help from JiibayDan and Usagi704, I was able to complete my third playthrough of Demon’s Souls in just over 14 hours. I’m going to play a bit more on a continuation of the same character I have. I still have yet to get the Mausoleum Key from Ostrava as I had mentioned previously that I’d like to do. This time I will make it my first priority.

Completing Demon’s Souls gives me my 16th game finished this year. It’s the lowest amount by mid-October I’ve ever had. I had 16 games beat by March 2014, May 2013, April 2012, and June 2011 in those specific years.

By the middle of October I had finished as many as list that follows:

2014: 35
2013: 23
2012: 40
2011: 29

If there’s any October left I’ll probably choose another game to finish up Halloween 2015.

In other news, I made an appearance on the first episode of Checkpoint with @ebbderelict. We chatted about recent movies watched, what we call the “fake Konami ban,” and PC Gamer’s 100 top games list.

And finally I purchased the 1994 film True Lies. You’ll notice I got it on DVD and not Blu-ray. Sadly, there’s still no release planned for Blu-ray. This version is from 1999 which means there isn’t a newer version. It’s very strange to have such a blockbuster movie be literally ignored for the last 15 years.
