22 years already? Wow. I still remember watching this music video on TV with my brothers trying to figure out which console this was being played. We were such kids. Oh, the memories.


I'm like 9 years late to the party but I just found out the Vita could connect to bluetooth speakers. Now I know how I'll play through Persona 4's ending and a bunch of other PS2 titles on the system. I made a right choice buying this handled, all right.


Health update: it turns out I didn't have Covid to begin with, it was all on my mind. As vaccines are not happening where I live anytime soon, it's up to me to double the protection methods. I feel relieved now.


2021's First Half Retro GOTY Nominees. Second half coming in November. Disclaimer: I know Salt and Sanctuary and STAY aren't retro but the rest of the games I have played this year certainly are. Hence, these awards of mine keep such name.


Playing Persona 4 (for the 4th time) during pride month may have been destined. Such an open minded game with lots of diversity. Remember it was first released in 2008 so, that's something. This game was the spark to help me identify myself. My favorite.


So it goes without saying: I am afraid. These changes were made to the previous sites I used to blog at and well, I made it all the way here. However, I trust in the staff and their love for this community. You can do it.


Just beat this game as the first one from my recommended series. My first visual novel, that's something new. New genres and more coming up.


Friends The Reunion is this documentary/special that sparks emotions in me just like when the actual shows was airing. A celebration of its influence but also, a reminder of how good is to remember things while still being able to move on. Emotional watch


The Dragon's Crown has been retrieved and so the game has finished. For a beat em up, this game is well done but for a Vanillaware one, it had a lot more potential. Still, had a blast with it and every victory was meaningful, indeed. Will miss u, narrator


Been kinda worried. A close friend who came to my birthday suddenly found out he has Covid19. He is under treatment as of now but thing is, I haven't felt any symptoms. The thought of it is making me feel bad. Going to do the test. Will let you guys know.


First time I believe, that I post a pic over here. So yeah, this is me.


Replaying Vagrant Story. It was great on the PlayStation, it is great on the PSP. And that sound design, marvelous.


After 4 months of teaching again, I can say I missed laughing with my students for the silliest of things when making examples. Having fun from Monday through Thursday all over again feels great.


And that's Legend of Dragoon beaten. Just like with FF8 last year, this game had so much going for it and never took off from that. My backlog feels lighter now and this game surely won't be forgotten. Rose won me over, so did this song. 3 out of 5.


Finished watching the final season of Castlevania. Though some new characters felt like fillers, the action sequences and resolutions were worth it. Glad this came to fruition. Also, good thing I didn't pay attention to the poster. That moment nailed it.


Had to share this.


Thanks for those birthday wishes yesterday. Did what I wanted: spent it alone with only instant family and one guest all day long. As I said, in the comments is this piece of writing that I'd been wanting to share with everyone. It's just a thought.


First birthday gift coming from my brother. This was unexpected and also, this is my first gaming piece of clothing ever so I'm wearing it all day long.


A lot happened last night. Sorry I didn't ask for your help, I needed immediate action. More on this later as for now, I am still recovering and taking time for myself. BUMP, here's what happened: gonna be a long read and going personal but I trust in you


Just replayed Crash Team Racing (PS1) and had fun all over again. In other news, let's be great to one another, reflect upon what we share and whatnot. I have something written regarding this but that'll be up for my birthday, in exactly 4 days from today


To whoever got this going, I thank you.


Worth every penny.


Took advantage of boredom at a birthday party to replay Bloody Roar to completion. All those memories from my childhood were pleased and I also got to enjoy the game even more. Love replaying old titles.


After some thought, I decided it was best not to sell my PSP just because I got a Vita 3 months ago. Admiring that little system while playing on it feels great. In other news, I will be finishing The Legend of Dragoon soon.


Started Dragon's Crown and I am in awe. Vanillaware sure knows how to make their games, all right. A replay of Odin's Sphere, this time leifthrasir, will follow.


Mighty No. 9 has been beaten and yeah, why did this happen? As a tribute to classic Megaman and Megaman X titles it takes it too seriously becoming a product of that time. The boss battles stand out but that voice acting and dialogue is so bad, it's funny


Watched Mortal Kombat (2021) and was oddly surprised. The first two acts are hampered by one performance that wants to steal the show and does so, for the worse. Luckily, it ends on a good note that does things right. 3 starts and a half out of 5.


200 posts already? To think I wasn't sure about posting here but it has been fulfilling in more ways than one. I don't know if I had shared this over here before, but it is a good time as any.


Wallpaper status. Home screen in the comments.


Haven't felt so relieved with gaming news in a long time. Sony did play with our feelings, indeed.
