Finally beat Hallow Knight after owning it for like a year. Very fun, but difficult game. And there is clearly lore there but I absorbed roughly 1% of it. Now I'm playing Xenoblade 2, that I got on launch day, but never touched till now. Loving it so far

 
 
 

Regarding the Mario Maker 2 online news, I think Nintendo bases their online design on the rules that a wishing monkey paw has

 
 
 

I swear there is a cosmic force that senses when you're saving up for things because this morning both of our cars decided to have very expensive issues happen to them, separately, at the same time

 
 
 

This is very 1st world problem, but: Just got a Samsung TV for a decent sale yesterday. Maybe I'm just spoiled by non-edgelit screens, but apparently its normal for them to have these white clouds of backlight spill through the corners, and its nuts

 
 
 

There's always this moment in the day after my coffee where I get super motivated to play ALL the games and get home to dig into one of the many games I haven't finished. Then I get out of work, get home, and realize I'm too tired to really invest myself.

 
 
 

Started back on FF14 over the weekend. Sometimes while playing I take a moment and appreciate just how much work must go into the game and its huge amount of content. I can't even begin to imagine what it must take for something so huge

 
 
 

Ever From game seems to give me at least one moment like this. The audio is my favorite part



 
 
 

Today is one of those days where I just don't feel up to "it" in general. I wish I could take days off, but I have the wonderful position of working full-time but on-paper, I'm "part-time", so I get no benefits like paid days off.

 
 
 

Just got to fountainhead in Sekiro. When I first started, I felt this was the most difficult From game. But after all of it so far, I think it's one of the most forgiving and satisfying ones to come from them.

 
 
 

The weekend felt too short, but I'm proud to have gotten further in Sekiro. Anyone have any tips for 1) The enemies that require confetti and 2) Those mini bosses that shoot terror orbs? I'm at a loss with them

 
 
 

Managed to beat a certain primate set of boss fights in sekiro. Took me a while but got the second phase down to a science.. Until the second encounter, which was more just flailing to get rid of the brown one

 
 
 

Just watched some videos on Elder Scrolls Blades. It somehow manages to be even more scummy than the majority of mobile games. Good lord Bethesda, do you just actively want everyone to hate you and everything you make?

 
 
 

This Kingdom Hearts mobile game does an amazing job of making me hate the sight of every world it puts you through. Please for the love of god no more agrabah, AND I'm only on mission 500-something!

 
 
 

When Sekiro talked about "confronting the memory" of a boss, I thought it was gonna be a way to replay any boss fight you want, for fun. I wish that was a thing, cuz some bosses are so fun to play against, but I might not want to power through a NG+

 
 
 

Dunno how I did it, but I was able to learn and beat Ashina Genichiro in Sekiro much quicker than I usually do. There really is something to be said about doing better when you're not stressing yourself out. So satisfying to deflect it all

 
 
 

Took some focus supplement and managed to make some decent headway in Sekiro. Got murdered on Ishina Castle unexpectedly by a flying enemy that screamed the whole time. Will try and upload a clip, it's hilarious

 
 
 

Today is one of those days where it feels like time is going by extremely slowly at work

 
 
 

Happy Wednesday - Currently thankful for my coffee working and wishing I could use this temporary energy boost to plow through more Sekiro

 
 
 

Taking a break from Sekiro to play some Vermintide 2. That game is so fun, but serves as another remidner that try as I might, the Warhammer universe lore is lost on me. Fun as shit co-op though!

 
 
 

Finally beat madame butterfly! Didn't use a snap seed either, since I lost them all in the many many many attempts to kill her. I missed that satisfaction

 
 
 

Playing Sekiro. Found a fire bull, got my ass handed to me. So I explored more and found madame butterfly and got my ass handed to me. So I explored more and found a blue armor guy and got my ass handed to me. I've run out places to run to!

 
 
 

Happy Friday, everyone! Currently hopped up on some caffeine and wishing I was at home to use this energy to get further in Sekiro

 
 
 

Just finished installing my first 1440p 155hz monitor. And I just witnessed 144fps for the first time. It's hard to describe. But it's absolutely beautiful

 
 
 

I spent a chunk of money on my PC a couple years ago, but ended up not really using it much. But now that my boyfriend got his own gaming laptop, I've played more in the past week than I've done all year. It's exciting :))

 
 
 

BF gets his first gaming computer delivered tomorrow. I think the thing I'm most excited about is finally being able to play Left 4 Dead again, with someone I know

Well, I'm your pretty run-of-the-mill gamer. I blend in with the rest of the Destructoid community commentors and have the same general taste in games.

I am a self-confessed Nintendo fanboy. I grew up with em' and plan on keeping them in my gaming life for as long as they exist. Course, I'm not a blind one, they have many many many problems, especially with their terrible handling of the Wii U.

I prefer RPGs and games heavy on story such as Bioshock. I tend to stay away from games like Call of Duty or any game that focuses too heaviy on multiplayer.
