We learned that there are Hunters that can't log out from a certain server in ExA, but there's one problem... I DON'T HAVE A ExA HUNTER'S LICENSE! Let's get that first as we go live with more Virtua Quest! https://twitch.tv/virtuakazama


Sunday Evening Status:


#24 Movie of 2023: Blue Bettle. As someone born and raised in Latin América, I can finally say that a movie actually took the time to have a decent representaon of our culture. As a DC fan, the mix of drama, action, and heart is there. Entertaining. 4/5.


Weekly Update, here are the games I am currently playing. I am going to review those within brackets once completed: -[In Cold Blood (PS1)] -13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (Switch) -Knights and Bikes (Switch) -DOOM Eternal (PS4/5)


#22 Movie of 2023: Elemental. Had this one been called differently, it would have made a lot more sense. Why elements when only fire & water are at play? A clever love story, yes, but a movie that had potential and was limited. 2 and a half stars out of 5


This is my child, Loot. He's four months old and refuses to eat beef


The wait for Starfield is grating on me, painted up some ye Olde early 80s spacemen in anticipation lol. These guys are from asgard who did that lovely line of fantasy dwarves I got a pile of too.


Wave 5 DLC came out last month and I haven't experienced it yet. It's time to jump back into Mario Kart once again as we go live with the 27th session of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! https://twitch.tv/virtuakazama

Needed to keep my mind off things for a while so I thought: "Why not by replaying Final Fantasy XII again?". And here I am, happily playing one of the best games ever made. Everyone has their own therapeutic games, and this is the one for me. Excellency.

#46 Game beaten in 2023 is: Resistance Retribution. Now this does feel a lot more like a sequel. The narrator is back. There is another plot unfolding. Characters are not just there, and the final boss was nice. Graphics and control scheme: superb. 4.5/5.


I know it's been a week since that last boss battle, but I'm still reeling from it. Let's hope for a bullshit-free session as we go live with more Virtua Quest! https://twitch.tv/virtuakazama


Gonna need a new capture card soon. Looks like the one I have is about to crap out.


I can't believe we live in a world where we're going to get a Gex remaster nobody asked for, but still no love for Dino Crisis.


Sitting here wondering why the hell Gran Turismo needed a movie. Like, that's on the very bottom of "Playstation game" adaptations list. Like, below Patapon and the Badman games. Below Syphon Filter and Kinetica. Hell, Kenetica actually bears explai


In this weeks Vlog I show crops, what makes them tick and how to unlock secrets based on where you plant them. Very satisfied with all of the functions I added to the crops and it all works as intended!


Casual Sunday Evening Status:


PSA to all Dtoid & Cohost users in Eastern Washington, there's a wildfire going on. Please pay attention to the evacuation orders given and get to a safe shelter area. To those west of the Cascades: wear your masks as the air quality sucks and hunker down


Had a great time at California Extreme this year! Played lots of old arcade games and pinball. Lots of cool stuff was there! Pics in the comments!


A new life awaits you in the off-world colonies!
