Slowly getting back on my feet. Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012) helped me as well as my previous post and some friends that checked up on me. I had to play online to get this platinum and the love for the Vita has created good comunities online.


 
 
 

One month without posting, guess an update would be nice, mostly for me as venting over here always helps. Update in the comments.

 
 
 

Finished watching 'The Sandman'. Went blind just following some of you guys talking about it and I really loved it. Though a favorite episode is hard to pick, that battle in episode 4 is art. Good writing is always appreciated, as seen in the screenshot.


 
 
 

Continuing with my trend of playing new genres, Hyrule Warriors Legends has been beaten. My 1st Musou that I struggled to get by but got the hang of it to the point of playing even when charging my 2DS. Also, this is my #24 game overall. More in comments.


 
 
 

As a horror fan, I'm glad that Alone in the Dark has a new game announced.



 
 
 

Playing through new game genres or entirely new franchises continues: Killzone Mercenary beaten. I am very selective when it comes to FPS and this one was a hell of a good time. I am convinced to try out the trilogy now. Those graphics were beautiful.

 
 
 

Been kinda busy with work and tired during the weekends, but got a chance to watch some new TV shows like 'Under the Banner of Heaven' which stars Andrew Garfield and does a good job as always, but the other one I saw: 'Severance' is great TV right there.

 
 
 

Just finished watching Resident Evil on Netflix. I should have listened and go do something else but, I suffered through its awfulness. I don't get it, a spin off that feels like a fanfic. This is a new standard on how NOT to do video game adaptations.

 
 
 

Gotta admit I only got Sonic All Star Racing Transformed just to play as Vyse and race on his track based on one of my favorite games ever: Skies of Arcadia. Kinda worried the Vita port won't play as the console ones, but I'm having so much fun.


 
 
 

A few months ago I tried a new game genre with both Oddworld and Another World. Today I've finished playing, much to my delight and sadness, Machinarium. I really enjoyed its cuteness, simplistic yet emotive storytelling, and challenging puzzles.


 
 
 

I haven't had the opportunity to play as much as I would like to this year, but choosing my favorites is still a thing. So far, out of the 16 games beaten, these 3 have been the ones I've had the most fun with.


 
 
 

I was scared I might not like the Persona dancing games. Guess I just needed to try them out. Honoring P3 which was my 1st Persona game, to see and listen SEES again is amazing. Might try P5D and then P4D as the latter's story mode doesn't do it for me.


 
 
 

Said and done: God of War 2 platinumed. I thought I was going to take longer to do it as I haven't been feeling well emotionally, but I managed. Glad to have found the means to get out from where I was.


 
 
 

Used to play this a lot on the PS2, and the Vita portability plus its long battery life while on sleep mode helped me beat the challenge of the gods. Playing God of War felt great and I'm very excited to move on to God of War 2 which is my favorite.


 
 
 

I am so happy that more people will be able to enjoy the greatness of Persona games. That is all.

 
 
 

Beating games from the good old backlog is always fun. Chain of Memories is not a KH game that many people enjoy a lot, but this original version plays a lot better than the remake. Marluxia always delivers a good boss fight, either 2D or 3D.


 
 
 

Got a little creative and decided to put a video game reference in one of my exams. Skies of Arcadia came to mind as the content was a little about psychology and self superation. BUMP: She did it, my student developed her writing. Answer in the comments.


 
 
 

Following this sudden streak of beating games, Metal Gear has been beaten. So glad this one was available on the MGS HD collection for the Vita, as portability helped me because I used a guide every now and again. Hideo Kojima was ahead of everything.

 
 
 

After a gaming interlude due to work and the birth of my nieces, I've beaten a new game this year. #12 goes to Final Fantasy IV DS. Just like when I played the GBA version, I couldn't put this game down. Voice acting & cutscenes were well implemented.

 
 
 

Been wanting to design a banner about the best games I've played (2006 to 2021) a long time ago, but I barely use a computer these days. I asked a friend and the end result is way better to what I had in mind. In love with this. 15 years of pure happiness


 
 
 

Watched 'Everything, everywhere, all at once' last night. What a movie. The film references, the symbolism, the acting. Easily of the best 2022 has to offer so far, along with 'The Batman', and 'Turning Red'.

 
 
 

Just watched Morbius. I didn't actually care about the reviews it got, and gave it a watch. Somewhat entertaining, yes, but the script hurts. The acting saved some scenes, though.

 
 
 

It's my 28th birthday today. Best thing learned from my 27: to spend my time with good people and good people only. So glad you guys are part of this, too.

 
 
 

I'll be sharing a top 10 from level 27 as I am turning 28 tomorrow on May 10th. Continuing with 2: my niecesđź’šIn this picture only one is shown but they are two, actually. However, seeing them everyday before going to work fills me with 9999 love points


 
 
 

I know this game (Lost Winds Winter of the Melodias) isn't remembered by many but its Mother's love main quest won me over some years ago. Happy Mother's day, guys.
