Whenever I see something get hyped beyond belief, my reaction tends to be "Ok, calm down there.", to temper my expectations. And I'm glad VA-11 HALL-A did turn out to be really amazing.


 
 
 

I've been seeing such negativity surrounding Travis Strikes Again that I thought I'd chime in. Completed the game, took me around 18 hours, had a great time! Some actually brilliant parts in there. Will play it all again, gimme that DLC.


 
 
 

Looking back on my 2018 in Gaming

Now that a new year has begun and it’s (still) the season to check what everyone thought of the previous one, there’s a sentiment I’ve seen across many year-in-review lists and videos: that 2018 felt really long, for ...

 
 
 
 

I've just become aware of this OP for the Persona 5 anime and I'm in love.



 
 
 

Just replayed the main story of TWEWY in the Final Remix, and it's still great, but I so much prefer to play this on the DS. I had to buy a compatible stylus, which wasn't gameplay-ready, since I had to buy another one. Tried with the finger. Nope.

 
 
 

Unless he's pulling a Kojima, Suda just confirmed Travis isn't in Smash... Given all the content the game has and Joker's announcement, I have no right to feel disappointed, but I can't help feeling sad.


 
 
 

Welp, Smash still hasn't arrived... Something else did, though, so I can at least dance the night away.


 
 
 
 

That Order of Ecclesia is pretty good, y'all.


 
 
 

I want to get into the Dreamfall games, so I started with The Longest Journey. I played about 2 hours, but I'm not having a good time at all. Would I be missing much, if I jumped straight to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey?

 
 
 

So, I finished Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, and wanted to share some quick thoughts on the experience (And spoiler warning)


 
 
 

It has arrived! That keychain is especially awesome.


 
 
 

PSA: Get on Steam right now and get this bad boy!


 
 
 

I'm thinking about buying a stylus for the Switch. Does anyone here use one? Any recommendations?

 
 
 

My boy is here too! (his spirit, anyway) One down, only that Travis DLC to go.


 
 
 

Well, well, a rather interesting assortment of games just turned up.


 
 
 

Motivated by Bass' latest blog about his trip to Japan and Hong Kong, here's a pic of me at Loch Ness, from my recent stay in Scotland (P.S. Nessie not included; P.P.S. Or is it?)


 
 
 

Let's get dangerous! (Awesome birthday gift my bro got me)


 
 
 

After over 91 hours, I just finished Yakuza 0! And since my pre-order of Octopath Traveler hasn't been dispatched yet, I'm thinking of turning that negative into a positive and play Yakuza Kiwami, all quick like.

 
 
 

I just came back from watching Incredible 2. They showed a short film at the beginning, Bao, and it's incredible. I was in tears by the end. I'd honestly have payed the price of admission just for it.


 
 
 

Help me out here, Yakuza fans: do you advise against playing Yakuza 6 before Zero?


 
 
 

After receiving Every.Single.Thing I could've wanted from previous Smash Bros. in this one - characters, stages, controllers - I almost feel bad asking for anything else. But could I have just this one thing? Pretty please? After that, I'm good, honest!


 
 
 

Wait a minute, with those sweet sounds, now you've got my attention.



 
 
 

Early 2019 is good by me! Now, I've got money burning a hole in my pocket, so announce those LEs in the meantime please (anyone else hoping for a physical Vita release, or only me?)



 
 
 

Thank you, InquisitiveRavenclaw, for such a great piece of art!


 
 


About JPF720one of us since 3:45 PM on 04.08.2015

Hello there, I hail from the mythical land of Portugal and video games are a passion of mine. It all began when I played the original Super Mario Bros. at a friend's house, got rekindled when my uncle got me a Saturn with a Golf game (which I never played) and has now blossomed into a very critical, but also very loving, view of this medium.

As a Translator with a background in Psychology, I love to share and reflect on my personal experience with games, be it the narrative, the mechanics or how they are perfectly in sync (love those).

My favorite games?
Dark Chronicle,
Hotel Dusk: Room 215,
No More Heroes,
Persona 4,
Shadow of the Colossus,
Tales of Symphonia,
Virtue's Last Reward.

And some other ones that get the shaft way more than they deserve:
Bioshock,
Bloodborne,
Catherine,
Digital Devil Saga,
Flower, Sun and Rain,
Killer7,
Mario&Luigi: Superstar Saga,
Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir,
Persona 5,
The original Professor Layton trilogy,
Shin Megami Tensei IV,
Steamworld Heist,
Syberia,
Tales of Berseria,
The Talos Principle,
The World Ends With You,
Valkyria Chronicles,
The Yakuza Series.
