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


Look what the mailman brought me today! I wonder, what could it possibly be...


Looks like Sega wanted to take advantage of the Sonic 2 hype and increased the Brazilian prices up to effing 170%! They seem to have increased also in other places too, like Argentina. Thankfully I had already bought mostly everything I wanted.


That Chrono Cross review reminded me that a few years ago I did a pool here asking which game I should play first: Chrono Trigger or Earthbound, and you folks picked CT. Thank you all a lot, I enjoyed it a lot more than Earthbound haha :p


So, Magic Arena - possibly the CCG with the most predatory economy of them - decided to release on April's Fools the best event they ever did (chaos sealed) almost for free.


Decided to start writing a new cblog series, a good old gaming journal. I'm almost finishing writing about what I've been playing in February... on March 25th! Having fun, but wanna finish it before the month ends haha


Wanna go back at making games/game-ish things, really wanted to be a jack of all trades (3d modeling, programming and music) but I dont have time for it all. If I were to pick 1 currently would be either 3D/music but maybe I dont have time for even that


As the years go by a lot of things change, but some things just always stay the same, like forgetting the password and being scolded by the password bot


Playing Shin Megami Tensei IV os making me realize I would play the shit out of a Pokemon game with cutthroat combat


Last month I dused off my 3DS and been regulaly playing it since (3d Sonic 2, OoT 3d, SMT IV) and let me tell you, I freaking love its glasses free 3d a lot more than I remembered.


Hey, Alphadeus did a super cool song for my on his Anthems project. I hope you like Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) music, this one is pretty sweet and I liked it A LOT!


Oh, and happy bday for our girl Flopabble and sorry I'm late but happy bday for our dude Bass! Hope both of you are having a good time and a great week :)


After a ton of lifestones and failed attempts I think I'm getting the hang of that demon negotiation thing? Also, was able to recruit a Dtoid mod for my team yesterday! Really really liking this game so far


Started playing Shin Megami Tensei IV recently. I have trouble trying to read social cues IRL, and the demon recruitment system is a masterfull recreation of that experience so far!


I've been wanting to start writing monthly mini-gaming journals here but I'm almost sure I was hit super hard with burnout due to job + life stuff and I don't know if I'm able to anymore, even if I really wanted to talk about games :l


The 3DS is by far my favorite console ever, the library is so solid and so diverse with tons of different games to play *proceedes to open 3D Sonic 2 for the millionth time*


Finally was able to play post-pre-release with my friends over webcam this morning! Hmmmm, I wonder what came in this kit...


Elden Ring? Sorry, this is the only ring I'm interested


The last Hot Wheels is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace.


Hey, do you folks use any tracking/sorting app for organizing your backlogs? I used backloggery a few years ago but I'm not exactly excited about getting it up do date. How do you people do it?


Hey folks I got my first tattoo today aaaaaaaaaaa


About Churros89one of us since 10:08 PM on 02.07.2012

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!):
