It's been a while since I posted a fitness update, there wasn't much to update, but now I feel like I reached a major milestone: the mythical 6-pack. Seriously, there are really 6! I can't believe I made it this far. I thought only people on TV did that.

 
 
 
 

Achievement unlocked: spread the ashes. Like a lot of people, I was skeptical of the new God of War and came away utterly impressed with the final product. Easily one of the most incredible games I've played in recent years.

 
 
 
 
 

What did you fine folks play in February? Which was your favorite? How many Western and how many Japanese? I played more games than in January despite no longer being on vacation because January was almost entirely eaten up by Red Dead 2. I finished...

 
 
 

Finished New Super Luigi U, a precious relic from the long lost Year of Luigi, also known to average humans as ”2013”. Like NSMBU, I played it back then on another forgotten relic called "Wii U", and now again on the Switch. It's great.

 
 
 

Taking a page from Steel Squirrel, how many Western and Japanese games did you play last year? I just counted mine, and I was actually surprised by the results. I thought it would skew a lot more Western. Turns out the score was West 19, Japan 13.

 
 
 

It's becoming abundantly clear that extreme measures to "contain" the Coronavirus are about as effective as containing the Flu. It's time for governments to abandon that fool's errand before doing even more harm. It seems we'll just have to live with it.

 
 
 

Finished New Super Mario Bros U again after 7+ years, this time on Switch. It didn't get much love back then due to the double punch of 2D Mario fatigue (Nintendo released 4 in 5 years) and the Wii U failure, but I think it's great and gorgeous.

 
 
 
 

500 deaths in Stupid Ori and the Stupid Forest. I'm probably close to the end, trying to escape the "fire temple" after freeing the fire element. Worst part is, when you die in this sequence, you have to do the whole damn thing again.

 
 
 

Damn, I didn't know Ori and the Bljnd Forest was this hard. I've died 229 times as of this writing and thought about rage quitting more than once. In fact, I'm considering it right now.

 
 
 

I went shopping for an SD card, came across Nioh and Evil Within 2 for BRL 60 each ($14) and nabbed them. This is my entire PS4 physical collection, a fraction of my total collection. Made me wonder if this is one of the last times I buy a physical game.


 
 
 

Hey, the Netflix Dragon Quest movie is any good! Well, besides the... (Spoilers)

 
 
 

Holy shit, I think I've just created my first Destructoid meme. I'm so proud.

 
 
 

Apparently Netflix has a Dragon Quest movie. Is it any good?

 
 
 

Too early to say if Ori and the Blind Forest is good, but it sure is cute.

 
 
 

Now the Remake is properly finished with both characters. It was a wonderful feeling to play two fairly different RE games back to back and be thoroughly impressed once again.


 
 
 
 

Welp, in RE2 they added plant zombies that one hit kill you unless you use a subweapon, can't be permanently killed except with fire, and Claire only has a few flame rounds. Somebody at Capcom took the "kill it with fire" meme way too seriously.

 
 
 

Not sure how I feel about the new map in Resident Evil 2. I can't say I hate the convenience, but it's too convenient. It tells you everything, to the point of cheapening the tension and making exploration unnecessary.

 
 
 

I didn't know they added a huge invencible guy to chase you around RE2. It's a bit annoying but also cool.

 
 
 

So zombies keep getting back to unlife 2-3 times in RE2 remake? This is new. I've been wasting a lot of ammo thinking headshots were the way to kill them for good.

 
 
 

Finished Resident Evil 7. It was amazing! It felt like RE1 all over again without simply copying RE1. Not that I didn't have issues with it. The hide and seek sequences sometimes annoyed more than scared. The first two thirds of the game are the...
