Even if I just discovered his name by accident, Yoshitaka Amano ranks among my favourite artists for a freaking long time. Besides designing a humongous amount of old-school anime that I haven't even heard of he's responsible for the iconic scening and character design of almost every major Final Fantasy release out there.
This is my completed setup. Never again will I have to plug or unplug a cable or switch in- and outputs. I can hear and record anything going on on every device at any given moment. It's a dream. (You might've noticed that I still need a proper audio cable so I don't need to go from the MPCs phones output, but that's just cosmetics)
Two years after I've first begun playing Dark Souls I decided to get myself a gamepad and get back at it again. It's such an intense game, there's no way describing it. I must've died a hundred times over, quite literally, and still don't grow tired of getting up and trying again.
One big aspect of the game is figuring out how it even works. I played for four hours only to decide to start over again, because I messed up my character stats. Then after 16 more hours I recognized that I missed out on some of the critical game mechanics and began anew. Now I'm feeling that I really got the hang of it and it's not that hard anymore. Still incredibly teeth-grinding, air-out-your-lungs-pulling fucking hard. Simply love it.
