Completely forgot about PS2's birthday this month, and with the current events, I had to scramble to get this blog done on time! Hopefully you'll find it a good read. Here's to 20 more years!!

 
 
 
 
 

Finished Doom Eternal. You don't need me to tell you how good it is, but if I had to, here's my review in one sentence: diamonds can't match how hard I am right now. Very strong GOTY contender. Now for the ultra nightmare run...

 
 
 

Yo, GOG is giving a bunch of free games thanks to Corona. I'd like to personally recommend Tyrian 2000, an amazing Shmup that not many people have played.



 
 
 

Current mood:



 
 
 
 
 

Happy 25th anniversary, Chrono Trigger! Thank you for all the timeless memories!



 
 
 

What else can I say besides... Welcome Back Commander!



 
 
 
 
 

Not gonna take four months between blogs this time! Time to relive C&C Generals in all of its 2003 glory! TL;DR: It was fun back then, and it's still fun in 2020. Next stop: Tiberian Wars!

 
 
 
 
 

I got a long weekend ahead of me! Brazilian Carnival is just around the corner and imma start celebrating it early! To my fellow Brazilians, don't do anything I wouldn't! Everyone else, have a fun regular weekend! Also, here's some samba!!



 
 
 

To all the lovely people out there with a special someone in their lives, I wish y'all a Happy Valentine's Day, you freaking normies! To everyone else, I hope you join me to make this the funkiest of Fridays. #FunkyFriday



 
 
 
 
 

50 years ago today, Black Sabbath changed heavy metal forever. Raise your horns, my brothers! \m/



 
 
 

Replaying C&C Generals right now. Dear Lord, I forgot how politically incorrect this game is at times! They break the Geneva convention at least once per mission! Especially with the GLA! Their music slaps hard tho, some true bangers here.



 
 
 

Odin Sphere's Theme Is A Musical Fairy Tale

A few years ago when I was still trying to get a degree in music, I had a teacher of musical composition that would always, without fail, take 20 minutes of his classes for musical appreciation. We already had a class on that subject b...

 
 
 
 

Finished the Early Acess portion of ScourgeBringer. This has loads of potential! Anyone looking for a fast-paced rogue-lite better keep their eyes on it!

My life in 24 games

[Nior is here to take us on a journey of their life, using video games as touchstones for important moments. Some of this is incredibly personal, and I’d like to thank them for taking the time to share. – Kevin] Last year I turn...

 
 
 

I'm back baby and about damn time! Time to continue that C&C Retrospective like I said I would! I give you Renegade! TL,DR: Game's fun but has issues. See y'all in two months for Generals XD!

 
 
 
 
 

3000+ deaths and 8 hours later I finally did it. Worth every single second. This was an amazing finale and the most fun I've had with a platformer in the last 10 or so years. Farewell Celeste, and thanks for the memories!


 
 
 

Hey I've been meaning to ask about this for a while now but kept forgetting. I was scrolling down my blog list to fetch a link for my next piece when I saw this and I'm very confused. (More thoughts in the comments).


 
 
 
 

Black Mesa's Xen Was Worth The Wait

Black Mesa, the unofficial-turned-official fan remake of the original Half-Life has been trough a lot. Upon release, it was missing the last portion of the game, Xen, a portion that many fans of the original (myself i...

 
 
 


About Niorone of us since 5:29 PM on 12.15.2014

Writer for fun, professional amateur and 16-bit dreamer.

Brazilian man born and raised, under the hot sun where I spend most of my days. Currently working on a series dedicated to the documentation of the local gaming culture and landscape, that I call Brazil Of Games. I took the name from an old TV series that aired a long time ago here but no trace of it exists on the Internet.

The Brazil Of Games:


[*] The original blog about Nintendo's departure from my country that planted the seed for everything that's to come, all the way back in 2017.

[*] The first real installment, where I explore the origins of the world's first digital-only console, the Zeebo. And why it failed.

[*] Meet the Locadora, the parlors where we got our first contact with gaming!

[*] A follow up of sorts to the previous blog, where I explore Brazil's most revered game: Top Gear!

[*] The SEGA Genesis might have been born in Japan, but it was Brazil that made it its home! Here's how it happened.

[*] It's no secret we love soccer games. So here's a brief history of the Mod that forever changed how we played them!

[*] Folklore is not something many games explore. Here's a game based on a local folk tale from my hometown.

[*] Everyone knows that gaming really started in the days of the arcade parlors. Brazil's history with them was a very curious one, thanks to legendary company Taito and their many, many bootlegs!

[*] Every story has a beginning. Here's to the game that created our whole gaming industry, Amazônia! May your legacy be remembered for all eternity!

[*] Happy 20th anniversary PlayStation 2! This one is dedicated to the console that changed everything!
