Posting after a stressful week. Shovel Knight was replayed and also got back to The Last Story. Hoping to finally finish it. As for different games out of my comfort zone, Oddworld New n' Tasty is a new genre I'm tackling. Finding solutions keep me going.


I am so fucking glad this movie exists. I already see it being displayed for use during therapy, mostly for children just like 'Inside Up' has. So darn good, loved every minute.


For a moment there I thought the first game shown at today's State of Play was going to be a new Dino Crisis. I am glad it wasn't. But a new Valkyrie game? Finally.


9th game beaten in 2022 goes to Resogun. Shoot 'em up is a genre I don't really care about but since I played this on the PS3 I always wanted to finish it. Playing it on a handheld feels a lot better.


Just returned from watching The Batman. The wait was worth it. That is all.


Quick check in. Busy week that ended on a good note with me beating Child of Light and having some friends over to play (missed dancing me ass off at Just Dance). As for Child of Light, it won me over quickly becoming a favorite. A piece of art, indeed.


Started playing Child of Light out of curiosity. Just a few hours in and I am in love. A game that uses poetry in every dialogue? That is all.


7th game beaten in 2022: Raymen Legends (Vita). Had a blast with this gem back on the PS3, and playing it on a handheld feels great. Those music stages are the best. Eye of the Tiger, as a Rocky fan I replayed that stage over and over.


I love the Internet.


Binge watched Peacemaker while still fully recovering from the Kidney stones. I went blind and expecting anything at all, even being a DC fan, and what a good shot it is. The minimalistic yet powerful intro, the characters, just great. Vigilante is my man


Little update: kidney stones struck again. This time out of the sudden when I thought I had them on check. 3 hours of intense pain but I am recovering now hoping to work properly on Monday. Darn those things.


I can't seem to get my memories with my 3DS so I am sharing some stats manually: Most played game: Persona Q2(118 hours). 2nd place goes to Theatrhytm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, and 3rd place goes to Persona Q. Good times with this system, indeed.


Guys, Happy Valentine's day. Thanks for being this uniquely, random, and awesome community that lent me this space to be me. I know it's kinda cliche, but I really mean it. Though technically not friends, you're part of small circle of good people. Love.


5th game beaten in 2022: Rayman Origins (Vita). Still as fun as it is on Wii, plus the portability nature. On to Legends, which I've read takes advantage of the handheld. Also, Rayman's dance moves are everything.


Saw this somewhere. I am so happy for Switch owners and Nintendo fans.


Arrived from work after being unplugged from the Internet not to know anything about Nintendo's Direct. Watched it, saw Klonoa making a return: screamed out of joy. That is all.


So the Oscar's nominations are in, and as per usual, some decisions are questionable. However, Andrew Garfield and Kristen Stewart being nominated made my day, same with 'Coda' for best picture, and 'The Mitchells Vs The Machines' for best animated film.


Started playing (for the last time, I hope) The Last Story. I got around finding my way through the part where I used to get stuck so, here's to finally finish it.


Came across this and found it interesting.


Today marks my first year owning a Vita. It was and continues to be a handheld that I appreciate so much. So many games played and lots more to discover.


Though I don't own current gen consoles and can't quite comment on the matter, these acquisitions as of late bug me. Hoping for the best with all of the studios.


Just like God of War Ghost of Sparta amazed me with its PS3 remaster, it did so again on PSP. God of War 2 vibes in terms of scale and exciting set pieces & boss fights. Now, do you guys recommend to play 1 & 2 on the Vita? I've read some negative reviews


Watched 'The Worst Person In The World' due to how good its reviews have been. Truly a thought provoking story, and a good movie to discuss about.


Last night I could finally spend the time to beat God of War Chains of Olympus on its original release. I had played it before on PS3 but since then I wanted to play it on the PSP. Besides from some graphical hiccups, the old formula plays well.


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.
