Another Pointless Blog Post Vol. 4: Oddfellows (03/02/2013)
Greetings, weary traveller of the online wastes, and welcome to this week's installment of the window into my life that no-one asked for!

I's been a good week for the gaming, not so much for variety, but for what I have accomplished. I made good on my promise to restart Metal Gear Solid 4, and am now back to the point in the game where I left off last time. I'm feeling it a lot more this time through, and am excited to delve deeper into the rabbit-hole of Kojima's twisted genius.
On the portable front, I finally hopped aboard AlphaJax (WP,) after finding out that a good number of my friends already have it. Quite enjoyable, but I am far from good at it, I'll be working hard for the Lexicographer achievement!
However, the gaming event of the week that I am most happy about by far, is my progress on Devil May Cry HD Collection. Only an hour before writing this post, I finally drew to the end of my DMC1 Dante Must Die run through, netting me a tasty 40G, and meaning that every achievement for Devil May Cry 1 has now been obtained. I shall soon be moving onto DMC2, but will be taking a few days off from the HD Collection to recover after 6 playthroughs of the 1st game. I love Devil May Cry!

It's been a good week for game purchases too. Based on the demo i spoke of last week, I picked up a copy of Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry, as well as buying my own copy of DMC HD, my rental copy of which has been returned to Lovefilm, to be replaced by something else in a day or two I hope. Also, I received my long-awaited order of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - Wizard's Edition, the PS3 JRPG co-developed by Studio Ghibli. I am super-excited to clear my gaming schedule soon and sink my teeth into a top-quality RPG!
In terms of rentals, I received a copy of Splinter Cell HD Trilogy (PS3,) from my service, but with ongoing current playthroughs of MGS4 and Hitman: Absolution, I have more than enough stealth gaming going on as is, so I won't be starting that for a little while yet. Also, after feedback on my blog last week regarding Platinum Games, I have added Bayonetta to my rental list. I have played it before, some time ago, but I feel I must re-visit that title. It seems that it is universally adored among the gaming community, however I remember it with nothing but bile and vitriol. I wish to re-visit it based on the possibility that maybe I missed something in it first time around, surely for a game to receive so much praise, it must do something right? Further opinions on that to come, dependent on when I get the game.

Not a bad week for music, either. I got 2 new albums, in the forms of Take as Needed For Pain (EyeHateGod,) and the new release from Mike Patton project Tomahawk, entitled Oddfellows. Both are stupendous albums, for different reasons, but the get equal adulation from me. Went a bit crazy on Amazon on Friday, and ordered 11(!) new CDs. These are as follows:

Dopesick (EyeHateGod)
Bullhead (The Melvins
Stag (The Melvins)
Eggnog (The Melvins)
Ozma/ Gluey Porch Treatments (The Melvins)
Sonic Excess In It's Purest Form (Crowbar)
NOLA (Down)
IX Equilibrium (Emperor)
Original Album Series (Pantera, all 5 studio albums for under £10!)
Pentastar: In the Style of Demons (Earth)
1/ Dog Days (Goatsnake)

There is something I truly love about collecting CDs, as well as experiencing the music contained on them of course.

Well, friends, that's about it for another week I guess, all I really want to get done this week is hopefully finish MGS4, make a start on DMC2 and maybe dive back into Hitman: Absolution, nothing too crazy this time!
So until next week, traveller, our paths part ways once more!
