Earlier this month I've played Automaton Lung after watching this video. It is a really rough game barely held together with duct tape with spectacular vibe and exploration. Loved it, and it definitely is making me consider going back to amateur gamedev


Finished Severed 100% today, and oh my what a game! Loved the gameplay, themes and duration, and felt like I already miss it during the credits. Now I'm trying to pick another 3DS game, maybe I'll go with Ever Oasis?


Oh, and I was super happy that back on my vacations I was able to get back at learning gamedev stuff, was learning how to do stuff in Godot, then September 1st a new set released on Magic Arena and I was back at my draft addiction (cool set though)


Started playing Severed on my 3DS today and apparently it is very, very good? The art direction is GORGEOUS.


My vacations start tomorrow! First time I take a 1 month leave from work since 2018 (these should happen once a year here), whoo! Downloaded some Steam/Epic games, subscribed to gamepass and installed Godot, time to catch up my gaming/deving :D


I'm finally will have my first one month paid leave since 2018, sweet! Time to finally dive into those Unity courses I've bought in Udemy and... oh, oh no


Was feeling like playing a digital TCG that didn't had that F2P bullshit from current games like MtG Arena, friend of mine recommended me this one. Playing with the premade decks, looks fun so far but I'm also feeling a bit dumb learning it haha


Monster Hunter 4 was a game about ending a pandemic by killing the disease with physical violence.


Hey folks, how are we doing today?


This "not E3" having all those shooty space scary games reminded me of a few years ago where most games on E3 had bows as weapon


Ok, last question about SMT IV: got the chaos ending, watched the lawful on YouTube. Should I watch the neutral or play it? How quick is the reincatnated NG+ playthrough?


"Shigeru Miyamoto on the E3 stage unveils the Nintendo 4DS, a three screen portable that is the successor of the Nintendo 3DS" #DALLEtoid


Aaaand Shin Megami Tensei IV is done! It feels like some sections drag a little bit too much, it could be a bit shorter, but it was a really solid, stylish and fun piece of RPG! Chaos route is done, but I don't think I have it in me to do the Neutral one


Even after all these years, my heart still has a Sup Holmes shaped hole on it. It was my first podcast and the only one I listened to for a good while. Nowadays I do listen other stuff, but I still think about this one from time to time


Shin Megami Tensei IV status: finally finished that quest that asks you to pay 150k only to find it was optional? Reached a point where as much as I enjoyed it I just want the game to finish soon, but luckly I think I'm about to get into the final stretch


Woah this new open Sonic game they announced today sure looks amazing, huh?


Laptop update: looks like both the hinges and the lid of my Nitro 5 got busted, according to the repairmen is due to manufacturer fucking up and tightening the hinges A LOT on this model, and this will cost like 1/4 of the price I paid for the whole PC


Cannon Spike was basically a shmup + beat 'em up hybrid and it was freaking bonkers, one of Dreamcast's finest #underratedmonday


Left my laptop on the repair shop this morning, it seems that the left hinge got fucked (thanks Acer!). Not looking forward to going cold turkey with Magic Arena, but I do think that more time with my 3DS and Mega Drive will be a nice change of pace.


Also, finished Sonic & Knuckles for the billionth time, then decided to reinstall Sonic Generations and... the controls and gameplay sucks a lot more than I remember?


My Acer laptop hinge/lid partially broke from regular usage, and I'll take it to repair tomorrow, which means that I'll have to involutanrily take a time off from playing Magic Arena :/


Aaaaand I didnt make it to the money prize on the day 2 of Arena Open. Managed to draft the stinkiest White+Blue+Green deck and even then SOMEHOW I went 3-2. But hey, not bad at all, never thought I could get so far :D


Heck yeah I've made it to the Day 2 of the Arena Open! Went with a Black + Blue sealed deck splashing a bit of White, pretty focused and strong. Let's hope I don't fuck up the draft tomorrow!


Hey Torch, happy birthday! I barely know anything about Gundam other than the part 1 OVA you recommended me once, so here, have a Megazord:


Mother's day loot: got a bunch of old bootleg Mega Drive cartridges and I'm about to test them to see which ones are still working, hope Sonic 2 is allright


Weekend videogame aquisitions: got Hot Wheels Unleashed's new Monster Truck expansion and also Star Wars Episode I Racer PC port


Oh, and I started playing Monster Hunter Rise this week, and holy buttcheeks the village theme is, like, REALLY GOOD? I mean, all the village themea are great, but this one is bananas


Welp, finally had to have "the talk" about adult stuff with 3 yo son. I thought it would still take a year or two, but yesterday I finally talked about democracy with him (he asked me why Mayor Humdinger was a mayor)


So, Sonic Origins looks freaking sweet, but Sega is not only not doing regional prices here but charging more for the Brazilian base game than the US premium edition so yeah, that will be a hard pass

Hello! My name is André and I live in Brazil. Currently I'm a System Analisis and Development student and I'm a hobbyist game dev (current status: life block).

My love of games comes from when my parents gave me a Sega Mega Drive when I was 4 (i think). My mom still regrets this decision to this day.

Love all consoles equally, but my current game devices are a trusty 3DS and my ok-ish laptop (at least it was a neat machine back in 2014).

Dango made me a list with my very favorite games ever (thanks a lot dude!):
