For some weeks now I have only cared about working, playing and going to bed early. Some friends have invited me over to have fun and while that happens, I can't stop thinking I'm worthless. Guess I haven't yet healed from being cheated. This hurts, a lot

 
 
 

Venting a little. Having a backlog sure has given me this sense of accomplishment and something to look for, but not all the games there do it for me. I used to play them all regardless, but no more. Cyber Shadow and Triforce Heroes uninstalled. Relieved.

 
 
 

And with this I conclude my movie weekend. Watching classics or culturally significant films grants me the chance to see how actors began and how much this industry has grown. Natalie Portman's performance is brilliant.


 
 
 

There was a recent birthday over here of an user by the username of Charlton Heston, and in one of those posts this movie popped up. Watching this in college seven years ago surprised me. Watching this now as movie buff still feels fresh. Timeless movie.


 
 
 

Improving upon perfection is possible. Beating Persona 4 Golden was one of those things in life I've always wanted to do and now that I've done it, I'm beary happy.


 
 
 

This is me again sharing my love for Persona 4. I just love this piece of art. That is all.


 
 
 

Yesterday I finally got to see and play on a Switch. It was the lite version but to play Breath of the Wild for a bit felt momentous. Economy over here is a mess so seeing a friend getting one goes to show nothing is impossible if one's mind is set.

 
 
 

Watching movies out of their quotes over the net can be a hit or miss, but not with this one. Trainspotting's delicate subject matter is tackled beautifully with strog performances and absorbing editing. A film about finding one's way in life. A joy.


 
 
 

This was taken when he was excited to see me coming home from work to play with him. Two years went by in a flash and yet, he still loves playing with me or watching me play💚


 
 
 

This is my first David Lynch movie and I have so many questions. It's weird, I don't really get this piece of art but that's why I find it beautiful. For my first weekend watching classics in a row, this was a good closure. Hope to be able to keep this up


 
 
 

I could get used to watching classics during weekends. Today it was Little Miss Sunshine's turn and wow, that screenplay is gold. Wouldn't recommend it to most people as its beauty resides on how radical it can be. However, a good down to earth story.


 
 
 

After seeing quotes from this movie all over the Internet, I decided to watch it. An instant classic in my book. This, alongside 'Front of the Class' are the kind of movies teachers should watch at least once to remind us our career was a beautiful choice


 
 
 

Watched the 1st season of Resident Evil Infinite Darkness. As always, I went blind only to find what seems to be an OVA of sorts with questionable graphics. If there is a season two coming I hope they fix the plot holes. I have 0 hopes for the live action

 
 
 

So Switch OLED is officially announced and I still believe I'd be buying the base model when I get to save for it, or maybe upgrade a little big more and get a PS4? I dunno, in the meantime I'll catch up with the handhelds I own. Btw, handheld blog is up.

 
 
 

Runner 2 has been beaten. I remember how last year I wanted to play this game so much and now I can finally say I did. The quality of life improvements over the first one make the experience a better one.

 
 
 

In The Palm Of My Hands: A Chronicle

Having to share a room with your siblings has its issues, like when I wanted to play video games in peace as a kid. Such a situation bothered me for years, especially during my school ones as both my older brothers usually watched thes...

 
 
 
 

Was going through a gaming fatigue as of late but luckily, Flower reminded me how joyful is to play just for the sake of it. Whatever I felt with Cyber Shadow is long gone and beating that game won't happen anytime soon.


 
 
 
 

Day 13 of medical suspension: I missed those try not to laugh challenges on YT. Seriously, I didn't just return to watching those but also to my poetry and to P4 Golden. Playing my favorite game anywhere I want? I'm putting the backlog to rest for a while

 
 
 

Hey you, human perfectly capable of loving another human being: I love you. Never give up, trust your instincts. Love who your brain, heart and body desires. I don't know if you guys like poetry, but I am sharing my pride month poem in the comments. Peace


 
 
 

Been wanting to ask you guys this: do you remember the first game you got to beat (as to get to the credits roll or finishing the campaign) in your consoles/handhelds? My list is in the comments.

 
 
 

Moments like these mean everything: finally got around writing another blog. This one is my review on Salt and Sanctuary. It's kind of short but in the position I'm in, it feels great.

 
 
 

Review: Salt and Sanctuary

One of the things I like to do in my free time is to watch lists on the Internet about video games. Salt and Sanctuary came into my life last year in one of those without me paying attention to it much other that its title. However, t...

Day 6 of yet another lockdown: my sanity levels are in danger. Sure I have all the free time in the world but being stuck at home doesn't help oneself not to feel stuck in life. Sorry, had to let this out.
