      DaruSH Eater of Time and Basil

      First off, some stuff about IO Interactive... They're fully separated from Square Enix and have all the rights for Hitman. There's also a new ET coming this month for Hokkaido. I did go and see Alien: Covenant, found it to be very enjoyable. I also recently watched Split and was surprised to learn it was linked to Unbreakable(another Shyamalan movie about enhanced humans). Oh, yes... I did have to look his name up(It's not a name I've seen often), just so we're clear. There is a third movie in the works, with McAvoy, Willis and Jackson reprising their roles from the previous 2. E3 recently concluded, so make sure to check out the info out there. 


      I leave you with the Destiny 2 Private Beta date, July 18...

      Happy Victoria Day(only applies to Canadians) people!


      Today, I bring you Persona 5 tips.


      Tip #1 The final boss is a doozy, I recommend being Lv. 78-81 before engaging it, fight the red enemies on the 2nd last floor of that dungeon for plenty of Exp. They consist of 2 Kali and one Mot or Abaddon. Kali has no weakness, Not is weak against Garu/Wind and Abaddon is weak to Psy/Nuke spells. Abaddon will absorb any phys/gun attacks, so be careful.



      Tip #2 The Temperance confidant is really useful, especially once it's been completed.


      Tip #3 Get the busted PC in the used goods store(back alley near LeBlanc) and the repair kit(Akihabara) to see a familiar face.


      Tip #4 Some personas can be turned into skill cards. However, this ability can only be used once per day ingame.


      Tip #5 No Arcana chance anymore post battle. You can strengthen Personas in VRoom(same place for #4).



      I used my Scene points to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2, liked how they included Ego in the story. He's basically Zeus from Greek mythology, except he wants to kill everything. I plan to see Alien: Covenant next weekend(I have 2 Movie Cash codes for it, courtesy of Best Buy's Alien movie promo) Berserk(the anime) has started it's second season, I do not recommend it if you're under the age of fifteen(at least). It is not a happy and violence free story. On a sidenote, fuck those damn trolls from the last two weeks. HMV is closed for good here, managed to snag some good deals on Blu-Rays(including RvB Season 14). 


      I found a copy of Kafka's Complete Works at a garage sale this weekend(1983 Hardcover). Anyone who's up to date on Tokyo Ghoul will have probably heard of him(and the story he wrote called Metamorphosis). In related news, Kaneki and Touka finally hooked up this week during Tokyo Ghoul Re:


      The Eden of Grisaia is now out on Steam(PG Version only, 18+ will be available through Denpasoft). It's the last entry in Yuuji's story, since the school building is used by the successor of CIRS after the events of the 3rd game. Meanwhile, I'm selling games and stuff next weekend at the community garage sale. I'd invite people to come, but I'm pretty sure anybody reading this doesn't live anywhere near me. I managed, somehow, to capture Mewtwo with a single Ultra Ball in Pokemon Y. It's now been transferred to Pokemon Sun, where I have both his Mega Stones(code is M2DESCENT, caps don't matter). Did run into an Articuno on the way to Pokemon Village, but it flew away before I could do anything.


      Gonna go watch RvB S15 Episode 8, then read Assholes: A Theory of Donald Trump. All while eating the 35 cent Cadbury eggs I found at a nearby grocery store. Laters!

      Hello!

      I'll spoil the shit out of it in May, so stay tuned!

      So I'm now 2/3(maybe?) into P4G and trying to catch the fucking River Guardian for the Hermit SLink, cause you need 1 for the Deep-Sea Rod from the old guy at the riverbed. It's not easy, and after several attempts I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Meanwhile, I've been sprucing up Poke Pelago in Pokemon Sun and it's fully upgraded now.


      On Thursday, I joined some friends for Archery Dodgeball, You can think of it as paintball, but the projectiles don't hurt as much when you're shot. It's probably b/c they use projectiles similar to ones fired by a Nerf gun. So one guy broke his bow by pulling the string too hard, one guy found his head attracted arrows and I managed to somehow, despite not intending to, nail a guy in the nuts. Some people on the opposing team preferred to just camp and not do anything besides sit down. Everybody got a free drink(bottled water or can of pop), although truth be told it appeared to be on the honor system(I only had 1 anyways). So when I was done, my shirt was half soaked from the activity(I also stunk to high heaven, cause of the sweat).


      Iron Fist beat its way onto Netflix on the 17th, I'm just about to start Ep8.


      See you soon!

      I finally got to play Resident Evil 7, and now have an intense dislike of people named Jack for some reason. I was able to complete the Surgeons ET in Hitman, didn't get SA despite meeting conditions required. I hope there will be more ETs in Hokkaido. I've been playing Pokemon Sun, having just transferred my pokemon from Y and Alpha Sapphire to it(courtesy of Pokemon Bank). Recently, I found a Fire Stone ingame as well, used it on a Eevee from Pokemon AS I had already named Skorch. I earned some more trophies in Persona 4 Golden and plan to do a Max S.Link run next playthrough.



      I saw A Cure for Wellness last month, and plan to see Logan today. I've been catching up on Arrow, having been behind since mid-season 4. I've also been catching up on The 100. There's a new trailer for GotG Vol. 2, 1 for Alien: Covenant and a new teaser for Deadpool 2.


      Meanwhile, Trump accuses Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during election, fails at using scotch tape to affix tie to shirt. He just stuck it on back of tie w/o rolling tape up so both sides were sticky. He's also guilty of ruining steak by having it overcooked(it resembles a curved, misshapen hockey puck) and then drowning said monstrosity in ketchup(WTF?!).


      I did manage to score really sweet deals on leftover Valentine's sugary treats, including 20 cents per kilo of caramel filled chocolate hearts.

      It is with a heavy heart that I must inform readers that John Hurt passed away earlier this week. Most people may recognize him as Kane, the 1st victim of the Xenomorph in 1979's Alien(and was a victim of the creature in Spaceballs as well). Resident Evil: TFC came out in theatres this week, with a CG movie coming later this year(like Degeneration and Damnation).


      Some new games have come out, including RE7, Tales of Berseria and Fate Extella: The Umbral Star. The Last Guardian is also $20 off at Best Buy in Canada until Friday. Hitman gets a phys release at the end of January(this Tuesday), along with a new mission being made available to all copies(phys/digital). The new elusive target(Blackmailer) is available in Paris, look for the guy wearing makeup(not Heath Ledger). RWBY has a new episode(#11) available, so be sure to watch that. Meanwhile, both Agents of SHIELD and The Flash are back on the air. With Flash's return last week, we know that a gorilla attack occurs soon(most likely Grodd, why he left GC is unknown). Patton Oswalt returns to AoS next week, as Nadir, Radcliffe and The Watchdogs attempt to get their hands on the DarkHold. BTW, seeing Fitz shoot Radcliffe-2 last week was the most badass thing he's ever done ;)


      Prey also got a release date of early May this year, along with a new trailer. I preordered it during E3 last year b/c Amazon usually has a discount for preorders during the convention. I'm definitely interested in RE7, but will wait for the price to drop($80 +tax isn't a small sum for a game you know).


      So I'm definitely watching Alien again today, have fun guys!

      Happy New Year!

      Now that I've gotten that out of the way, it's time for some news. Skyrim(Elder Scrolls V) is supposedly coming to the new Nintendo console later this year, though I have no idea if it will be like the recently released remaster or the PS3/XB360 version(with DLC of course). The new Elusive Target for Hitman is The Chameleon and as always, you have a limited window to eliminate the target. My current PC can't run Nightfall(dammit), but it did come with the VR version. I hope to enjoy it on my new PC, which I plan to buy within 2 years. RWBY Grimm Eclipse is coming to PS4(and probably XB1) soon, if it hasn't already. Not sure if Gang Beasts has made it to consoles yet, I don't think they even have online multiplayer for PC yet. February's Humble Monthly Bundle will contain a Steam Key for XCOM 2, so that's definitely something to look forward to. The Tales of Berseria demo is out on PS4 as well, so you can play it before getting the game.


      Chaos;Child premiered yesterday on CrunchyRoll, hopefully this adaptation fares better than Chaos;Head. Don't get me wrong, it was decent for 12 episodes. They shouldn't have added ransom stuff like the Noah I prototype of the GE rate thing from the last episode. I'd completed the VN it was adapting prior to watching it, so my perception was affected. Agents of SHIELD returned this week, so it was nice to see more of John Hannah. In March we get Iron Fist on Netflix, plus Guardians Vol 2 in May(Then Thor: Ragnarok and Spiderman: Homecoming later on).



      It's gonna be fun!

      I acquired my own copy of Skyrim SE for $30 CDN on Boxing Day, along with the Battlefront game(+season pass) for $25. I also picked up Deadpool on Blu-Ray, along with Nightfall for PC(it's a game with monsters from legends in the Philippines, like the tiyanak*). I received a copy of Titanfall 2 for Xmas, which I will start playing soon(I hope, I'm having too much fun w/ Skyrim atm). I have yet to kill Elusive Target #17 in Hitman, mainly b/c I'm terrible(ie I haven't replayed the levels much for unlockable options). In case anyone didn't know, exiting GTA V while signing out of GTA Online will mess up your $$$(especially after delivering a car you had sourced for your vehicle warehouse).


      I learned a movie for Doctor Strange was released for home video in 1978, having found a copy at the local library. I plan to watch it this weekend. I'm going to see Office Party as well tomorrow, then heading to Montana's for dinner with family. It's gonna be great!


      *Seriously, for the love of fuck... Don't look it up, you may have nightmares.

      While I'm at it, do not look up the following:

      -Aswang

      -Duwende/Duende

      -Ekek

      -Kapre(okay, that was a joke one)

      -Mambabarang

      -Manananggal(no typo here)

      -Mangkukulam

      -Tikabalang

      -Wakwak(don't let the name fool you, it'll tear you apart)


      So yeah, beware these creatures. They might just be lurking behind you.**


      **Not really, I just wanted to fuck with you before the year ended. Have fun!

      I'm well into Skyrim on PS4, having acquired a helmet with Fortify Alteration. I've also been working on a lot of different skills, including smithing. I'm currently heading to High Hrothgar and then returning Ulfric's axe. I have yet to start Inside or The Witness, but did manage to take advantage of the previous weekly discount for GTA Online(cargo missions). I ended up selling 1.6 million $$$ worth of cargo, which I used towards a vehicle warehouse out in El Burro Heights(the oilfield). I haven't played Hitman a whole lot, aside from completing the story missions. I guess the one I liked the most was the Silas mission. Destiny has a new event going on, so be sure to check it out(especially since Sparrow Racing is back).


      I saw Rogue One this weekend, it was pretty good. The last movie release I saw this year was Ghostbusters: ATC. While it still isn't a great movie(Ghostbusters: ATC), I did enjoy it.


      I don't have anything else worth mentioning, except for aGirl&aGame is almost done her playthrough of Until Dawn. I think she's having fun with it.



      Happy New Year!

      I'm pretty much done with Skyrim on PS3. I've finished the story for hitman as well, have moved to contracts and other stuff. I may hunt the Sarajevo 6 too, just not tomorrow. Earlier today, I got a good team for cargo collecting in GTA V. Up until I decided to sell anyway... The other pilot either got dropped or fucked up(still not sure which). I ended up losing 8 crates, which wasn't as bad as it could've been(having sold all 27 I had for the warehouse). I picked up Inside(from the team behind Limbo) and The Witness during the PSN Awards sale last month, They're on the backburner until I'm done with Rise of the Tomb Raider(at least, I have a lot of games thru PS Plus). 


      As for movies, I'm not planning on seeing anything til Rogue One on the 16th. I ended up skipping Inferno and The Newt Scamander movie. I'll probably go see Marvel's stuff next year, with Infinity Wars drawing closer the story's going to pick up. On the DC side of things, I'm interested in the Fables movie(as in Bigby Wolf, Snow and the rest from The Wolf Among Us). It's probably going to be a side story, b/c I don't see it being a good idea to just jump into, say, The Great Fables Crossover(or the Mr. Dark arc). I believe it's being written by Jane Goldman. There is an Alien(fuck Weyland-Yutani) movie coming next year, more info here:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien:_Covenant


      For Skyrim, I need to find stuff with Fortify Alteration only(no magicka/mag regen bonus) to use the TK exploit. I'll level up quicker and be able to find a Legendary Dragon sooner. I'll need to summon a dragon for that, either Odah or Durn. I want to finish the guild quests first though(Companions, Thieves and CoW). 


      I'll make a new post later, the RT Podcast is yelling at me to watch it.
