As much as I like the Persona series, Persona 4 Arena was just ok. As a fighting game, it shows potential even with that unbalanced characters and difficulty. Its store mode, however, doesn't fit. Guess visual novels aren't for me.

 
 
 

After reading @Seymour blog of their games beaten during the first quarter of 2021, I remember I hadn't blog about mine since last year. My thoughts on these 15 games are up in my blog.


 
 
 

Exber's 2021 First Quarter Games

Last year these blog series suddenly died after some personal things I had to go through, and when I remember about it, it was time for some other blogs. This year, however, that is something I don't want to see happening. 2021 is goin...

 
 
 
 

Giving Legend Of Dragoon a second chance has been worth it.


 
 
 

From left to right: Top Oscars' Best Picture Favorites. Never Rarely Sometimes Always is still my favorite from 2020 overall but Promising Young Woman is a must watch.


 
 
 

For anyone who had played Persona 4 Arena. Is each character story mode mandatory? Can I just play through arcade mode with them all and get a grasp of the story?

 
 
 

I'm a big fan of the Def Jam series but ICON was... A product. Holy, haven't felt this disappointed since Resident Evil 6 but at least with that game I had some fun. Good thing the first two titles are on my replay list.

 
 
 

A year ago, I followed a friend's recommendation to join this site. A year later, I'm thankful for that, for your welcoming here despite I'm not that active and, keeping this a nice place to be. Thank you, all. Let's keep on making Qtoid great. Blog is up

 
 
 

1 Year As A Destructoid User. My Thoughts.

The pandemic has been something that no one has been able to escape from. Most of us got hit with a myriad of realizations we needed in our lives. I decided to trust in a community once again after not being able to fit in anywhere nor...

 
 
 
 

After years of wanting to play it, Axiom Verge has been beaten. I know it is heavily influenced by Metroid but a little more personality and a better pace would have helped it. I'm interested in the sequel, though.

 
 
 

After months without playing on a big TV, playing Dishonored had me appreciating my PS3 even more. That's how easter went for me and I had a blast, indeed.

 
 
 

As I played through DOOM 2 hopeful and thirsty for more, I couldn't help but feel this game as an afterthought. It had me entertained like the first one because of that: it plays and feels like DOOM with little to no touches.


 
 
 

This was an interesting watch.



 
 
 

The Legend of Dragoon may be many things, but it certainly grows on you. Lots of tropes here and there.


 
 
 

The Ultimate Doom finished. Kinda left me wondering why I played the GBA port and not this one in the first place. Loved the music. Had me headbanging for the entire playthrough.

 
 
 

Wrote my very first movie review a few days ago about the film Never Rarely Sometimes Always. Link in the comments. Any kind of feedback would be appreciated.

 
 
 

First time watching the BAFTA Games Awards was refreshing coming from The Game Awards. Short, to the point and with surprising winners. Hades GOTY had me smiling for a while.

 
 
 

Sorry for double posting in one day. Quick question: co op shooters for PS3? Twin sticks, similar to Dead Nation would work. Thanks in advance.

 
 
 

As a Kirby fan, I wanted to play Mass Attack. I thought it was canon but it wasn't and it's ok. However, the level design can feel unbalanced and those end stages felt unfair, only to have a joke of a final boss. Glad I played it, forgettable as it is.

 
 
 

A lot better from 2017's release. It was worth the wait and totally worth my time.


 
 
 

As I wrote in my latest blog: Salt And Sanctuary's platinum has been earned. 34 hours divided in three runs to complete it and find interest in The Souls series. Great game, indeed.

 
 
 

The Milestone Of Beating A Game

The sense of accomplishment is something that goes hand in hand with our IDs as each has its own. Having said that, these times we have been pouring our hearts and souls to make it out once it is all over kinda backports our life spans...

 
 
 
 

I'll keep watching the Oscars for my love to cinema but the snubbing is very ironic. They will star asking for politically correct films and yet they forget those which already do that? And yeah, Mulan for best visual effects is laughable, at best.

 
 
 

As the pandemic has been with us for a year now, our struggles are something only we understand. Due to this I wrote something to vent a little, as we all need to sometimes. Write up the comments. Keep it up, everyone. There's no challenge we can't defeat

 
 
 

Good news amidst unemployment anxiety: one of my ex students contacted me for online teaching. Waking up at dawn again hurts but it has been worth for both of us.

I have been playing video games since I was 4 years old. Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo 64 are among my first gaming memories.

Console gamer. I play on PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, 3DS, DS, and many retro systems. However, PC is not out of the picture.
