Watched Mamoru Hosoda's Belle. I'm not really into anime but this director convinced me into Japanese animated films with 'Summer Wars' and 'Wolf Children', and while his new movie started slow, that second half did wonders. Loved the innocent approach.

 
 
 

And that's Luigi's Mansion 2 replayed. Had a great time with my favorite Nintendo character. This has been my first replay in 2022, and the following games are the PSP God of War ones and Final Fantasy XII.

 
 
 

Went to a party last night only to realize I need a cleanup on my friend list. Whether is a thing of new year or not, I want good people around, not the opposite. On other news, started replaying Luigi's Mansion 2. I had forgotten how good that game was.

 
 
 

Following a recommendation I finished watching It's A Sin. Truly a touching story of an already delicate subject matter. Glad I gave it a chance.

 
 
 

Coming back to work got me back to my usual self. Guess that was what was keeping me down these past days. On to teach, play, and watch lots of TV Shows and movies.

 
 
 

Got around playing Halo Reach in order to find something to do and I'm glad I did. Playing the original Halo 5 years ago was something else, and beating this one felt great, too.

 
 
 

Been feeling kinda down since the beginning of this year, don't know why. Maybe I need to get back on track with teaching and stuff. Just venting a little.

 
 
 

I didn't have resolutions for 2021 nor thought of any for 2022. I guess try some new game series, focus a lot more on my job, cherish and take care of my social circle while also looking for more people to talk to and, be a better person than I was before

 
 
 

A flawed beauty. This will keep me busy until it's time to come back to work.


 
 
 

Guys! You made it into my drawing of 2021!😊Thank you all for being here when I needed it most, for celebrating my happiness whatever that may have been, for making me want to check Dtoid to laugh, share, enjoy💚You guys can do everything. Happy New Y


 
 
 

My GOTY list this year, as per usual, is about games not released this year as I don't own current gen consoles. Metroid Dread was the exception and a very great one at that, despite its ranking. BUMP: GOTY Blog is up, for more of the games I played.


 
 
 

Exber's GOTY Awards 2021

It all has come down to this, me changing the name of my yearly awards while also adding three new categories and, sharing it outside my gaming circle to curious effects. To share one's love is something I learnt this past year, and la...

 
 
 
 

Someone lent me Alone in the Dark (2008) and I did enjoy it once again. Played it first on PS2 but the 360 version along with PC and PS3 are the main ones. Such an ambitious game with lots of potential, and a killer soundtrack. Sadly, a missed opportunity

 
 
 

'Don't look up' is the type of movie I wouldn't have liked in the past but that I clearly enjoy and cherish now. In addition to the cast's vibrant acting, the conversation this movie proposes is refreshing. Truly had a great time watching it.

 
 
 

Hoping the best for you all guys, you rock👊🏼


 
 
 

PSA


 
 
 

Watched Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City last night. Holy T-Virus, it was bad. I did laugh a lot, though.

 
 
 

Just earned Persona 4 Golden's Platinum! Way to honor my favorite game of all time.

 
 
 

Quick thoughts on the top 3. Spencer's use of cinematography is everything along with Kristen Stewart's excellent performance. CODA perfectly displays all of its subject matters with a lot of heart. Finally, tick tick BOOM is humble, powerful and relevant


 
 
 

My oldest brother came back to visit in order to spend one month with us! 3 years without spending the holidays together. This is the best Christmas present I can ever wish for. Also, my last Persona 4 playthrough is almost done and with it its Platinum.

 
 
 

Arrived home from Spiderman No Way Home. Three things: 1)We fans got our Christmas present early. 2) Willem Dafoe delivers acting greatness in all of his films and, 3) clapping and screaming with the audience feels so darn good. 4 stars out of 5.

 
 
 

A few months ago I got to beat World of Final Fantasy. As a fan of the series, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Easy difficulty and missing characters aside, what the game shows is a love letter to fans, one that is worth playing. Review blog is up.


 
 
 

Review: World of Final Fantasy

When a series gets too many sequels and spin-offs one can expect either greatness or failure out of the end result of each. Final Fantasy has been a staple in the JRPG genre for decades and to celebrate its 30th anniversary Square Eni...

 
 
 
 

2nd year doing this. So, quick thoughts on Top 3. Invincible is adult animation meets superheros with a refreshing take. Arcane is a prime example of how to do video game adaptations. Finally, Nine Perfect Strangers' approach and performances do stand out


 
 
 

Nintendo not winning family game? Best game direction not being GOTY? Quite the twists there. Anyway, I'm so glad that Metroid Dread won Best Action Adventure Game. Totally deserved. Finally, the orchestra at the end did a great job, as always.
