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.

 
 

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.

 
 
 

After getting back to it using guides as extra help, Zelda Four Swords Adventures is finally down. Enjoyed it more than I would have expected.

 
 

Mario & Luigi Super Star Saga Beaten. Played the original and its potential worked in its favor, most of the time. I know the sequels use a better layout, and I'm ready to try them out.

 
 

PSA: for anyone interested, ScourgeBringer is coming to PS4 and PS Vita on April 22nd.

 
 

Gliding again on the go while witnessing this beauty #indietoid


 
 

That's Thomas Was Alone 100% trophy set achieved. Smiled and laughed with the game just like when I first played it.

 
 

Last Story's disc won't seem to work so I moved to Pandora's Tower, and I have to say grinding and looting never felt so rewarding. Best Ending is totally worth it.

 
 

Playing indies on the Vita is marvelous. Salt and Sanctuary takes up most of my time without me even noticing. As a masochist I am, this game rocks.

 
 

Radiant Historia was released 10 years ago. Either the original release or the enhanced port are portable gems.

 
 

Final Fantasy Type 0 was a better spin off title that I had anticipated. That ending I did not see coming, it was worth my struggle throughout that final dungeon.

 
 

11 years after its release and one year since I started playing it, Super Meat Boy has been beaten. Dark world will have to wait. This is a milestone for me as I never thought I would be able to see the credits.

 
 

That Nintendo Direct was going well until my favorite Zelda game Skyward Sword HD was announced. I lost it, I screamed, I was happy. I was expecting to be disappointed but I wasn't. Darn it, gotta save up for a Switch.

 
 

Zelda 35 blog is up. Ended up writing a poem out of some of the series' quotes.

 
 

Happy Valentine's y'all. Spend it just like any other day: doing what you like, where you want to, and with whom you feel good with.


 
 

This ending sequence is already up there as one of the best I have witnessed. Totally worth it, and this song only adds to the whole feeling.

 
 

Said and done: bought an used PS VITA Slim. Gotta enjoy those indies and ports I have been wanting to play so much.


 
 

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast was a tiring one hour mini game released as a full game. The soundtrack does its job, though.

 
 
 

New monthly upload for QTOID this 2021: gaming appreciation poems. This one goes to Resident Evil 2.


 
 

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles last night. I was missing out, for sure. Kudos to this game for it is a must have for RPG, and Wii owners. The Last Story is next, and maybe FF12 again.

 
 

As I wait for the outcome of some job applications, I want to do something I couldn't do last year: play genres new to me. Mostly for PC, I am looking for Roguelike, FPS with story, god game, and action rpgs. More info in the comments.
