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.

 
 

Seemingly joined the unemployment ranks. This is not good.

 
 

Tried playing Muramasa, and failed. Odin Sphere wasn't that hard to follow. I'll try Dragon's Crown next.

 
 

First blog of the year published. Here's hoping I get called to work again so I can have more sources of inspiration.

 
 

From left to right top 10 TV shows watched in 2020.


 
 

Wonder Woman 1984, either a good or a bad movie does something right: strong performances and DC's original take on its movies.

 
 

Current mood:

 
 

2020: defeated!

 
 

Just wanted to share some positive things regarding this passing year. Something good did happen to us, let's embrace that and march on. Happy new year, guys👊🏼Thanks for all the posts.


 
 

My Retro GOTY Awards 2020 blog is up. Thanks in advance to those who took the time to read what was in my mind this year.


 
 

Whether the decade finished last year or will this one, these games are my top 9 for that matter. I can finally blog about them... Bump: Blog is up.


 
 

From left to right my top 10 movies of 2020.


 
 

Playing one's favorite game never gets old. This marks my 3rd Persona 4 playthrough and it feels beary good.

 
 

16 more days and this year will finally be over. Here's hoping that most of us return working in one way or another, and beat those issues that may get in our way. We can do it, don't know how, but we can.

 
 

The Game Awards used to be enjoyable... at best, but it's 2019 and 2020 iterations left me wondering if I should bother next year.
