Ok, guess I justpre-bought Edmund McMillen's new game, because that's what I do whenever he releases new shit *sigh*


 
 
 

Current Pico 8 Breakout tutorial progress: 10 videos down, 67 to go


 
 
 

I usually try really hard to avoid Pokemon spoilers, but as I'm not planning on buying Sword/Shield anytime soon I decided to check out the leaks. I dislike some new designs, but there is a lot of cool stuff out there. Seems like it will be a fun game


 
 
 

Had fun yesterday! Ended up not playing my brother's Switch, but we had a MtG cube draft, in a best of 1 tournament format. I ended up winning with a Golgari deck. I mean, half of players never played it, but still counts I guess.


 
 
 

Welp, I just turned 30 years old today


 
 
 

Status update: figured out how to animate sprites on Pico-8, but found it kind of a chore. That said, I'm probably doing it wrong. Only programmed animations for the down and right sides because Im lazy


 
 
 

The good thing about the residence program is that the lunch break is 30 min longer than at my previous job. Did a bit more of the Udemy Blender tutorials, then gave it a break and decided to watch some PICO-8 youtube tutorials instead. I'm digging it!


 
 
 

So I went with my brother to the MtG Open House at his favorite store, but just briefly. I scored a green/red welcome deck (M20) and he got a white/red. We played once, he got me at 4HP and then on the next turn I caused 15 damage and won :p


 
 
 

Game genre idea: an online cooking game where 100 players try to bake the tastiest cake ever, while the slowest players are eliminated one by one. The name of this genre? Batter Royalle.


 
 
 

Working on saturdays sure is fun, but thank Arceus I have this video to keep me entertained. Oh, and also brought my 3DS but haven't turned it on yet. And by the way, next monday is my last day working here, details in the comments. (now with details)



 
 
 

Since yesterday I've been feeling like playing some good ol' Phantasy Star Online. Never made very far, I always stopped playing at area two, and I bet this will probably happen again if I end up installing it :l


 
 
 

Ancap coworker: I used to like System of a Down until they started putting political stuff in their lyrics


 
 
 

My brother is trying to get me into MtG, so he gifted me a pauper deck that consists of dinosaur cards + knight and vampire tokens. We played yesterday, and I'm finding it quite fun so far! First impression was that I may like it more than Pokemon TCG.


 
 
 

The only reason I'm still sober is because I don't own a hip flask

 
 
 

Today is Brazil's Independence Day, and not a living soul will work today... Except me and my coworkers. I'm bringing my Android gamepad and my 3DS stuff to survive during the most boring 4 hour shift ever.


 
 
 

Welp, have fun with Iceborne, console folks! I'm trying to decide if I spoil myself by searching the full monster list or if I instead try to go blind only to get spoiled by social media. Decisions, decisions...

 
 
 

Having to work on Saturdays sucks, but at least there always almost no work to do, so I guess I'll try to play MHGen once more to see if I make it past Low Rank before I get bored of it


 
 
 

After weeks without touching this I decided to work a bit more on my FPS for Android. Now you can shoot and it has 2 buttons. Baby steps!


 
 
 

On less horrible news, yesterday I had the chance to try Breath of the Wild and woah, what an incredible game. It felt so good to just play it. Also I'm surprisingly good at getting myself killed by climbing steep slopes and falling in freezing water.

 
 
 

I think I just overheard two co-workers talking about the Amazon Forest fire saying that the mainstream media is spreading fake news or something among these lines. Nothing like far-right conspiracy to brighten my mondays.

 
 
 

Yesterday me and the lady tried the definitive classic unitedstatian sandwich: the vegan hotdog.


 
 
 

I was pretty pumped to play 30~45min of NMS Beyond before work, then I had to update my GPU driver, then I had to download a small patch, then I ended up playing 5 minutes only (+10 during lunch break). At least the new Pokedex page looks way better now


 
 
 

It is Father's Day here in Brazil, so I spent the morning in the most fatherly way possible: playing No Man's Sky while the baby and his mom slept. More pics from today's session in the comments, including two fabulous animals I found.


 
 
 

Giant Friendly Crabs



 
 
 

Building my base, room by room. If you look really close you can see my little dude standing over one of the skylights. Too bad that building each wall block takes 40 freaking carbon each. Anyway, should probably go back to the main quest


 
 


About Churros89one of us since 10:08 PM on 02.07.2012

Hello! My name is André and I live in Brazil. Currently I'm a System Analisis and Development student and I'm a hobbyist game dev (current status: life block).

My love of games comes from when my parents gave me a Sega Mega Drive when I was 4 (i think). My mom still regrets this decision to this day.

Love all consoles equally, but my current game devices are a trusty 3DS and my ok-ish laptop (at least it was a neat machine back in 2014).

Dango made me a list with my very favorite games ever (thanks a lot dude!):
