Sad it's ending. Happy it's ending on its own terms. It's a fuckin' winner no matter what happens.


Despite it being more low key than others, birthday has been pretty good today. Persona 4, Lightfall, Metroid Prime, some new perfume & sunglasses, a snazzy suit, and a whole weekend of activities planned. Sometimes folks, life is good.


Finished REmake. Have now played all the mainline RE games in some shape or form. In terms of my personal enjoyability, I've ranked them below.


My friend's response to the latest episode of The Last of Us had me cackling. Yeah... That WOULD be wild if a video game did that huh... I can't imagine gamers would EVER be annoyed about it.


Just watched the Suicide Squad game footage. It's a game I have not yet played, yet is also a game I'm sure I've completed several times already.


Happy Friday y'all hope you have many good games ahead of you for the weekend! Gonna finish up REmake, and maybe start Uncharted: Lost Legacy or carry on with Horizon: Forbidden West.


Should polish up RE1 in the next few days, work permitting. Then it's on to Yakuza 0 me thinks.


Hammering through the backlog because I have too many classic games I've never beaten. Trying to finish RE1 for the first time, and as ever I'm struggling to enjoy it on any level. Yakuza 0 & Persona 4 on the docket afterwards. I'll get there eventually.


Dead Space Remake done and dusted. Improvements in the graphical & world design aspects aside, it's much more of the same, for better and for worse. Solid stuff. Hope the second one gets a similar treatment. 7/10.


Broke Dead Space. I'm stuck in first-person mode, my weapons won't load, enemies have de-spawned, and I have no missions available. Guess I should just explore like it's a first-person Walking Sim instead.


An exceptional Direct. Think the first presentation I've loved from beginning to end since Sony's PS5 reveal. Excellent stuff all round.


I genuinely think this might be the thing I have instead of a child. It makes me that happy.


That new episode of The Last of Us is beautiful. Just beautiful. Using the song 'On the Nature of Daylight' should be considered cheating because it never fails to make me cry.


Finished The Medium. What an ugly, nasty little game that is. When it's not sympathising with sexual predators, it's actively telling people with trauma that maybe 'you are beyond saving.' The below trophy tells you what it's stance is on mental health.


Watch the new Last of Us episode with headphones. Makes it so so tense. The sound design is incredibly crisp and astoundingly intimate - Hats off to the foley artists and mixers out there, because stuff like this shows how important you are.


Oh yeah. That was some good fucking stuff right there. Craig Mazin & Druckmann nailed it. I need the second episode immediately.


The wrestling news saddens me. Current status.


Saw a post earlier about Evil Dead Rise. That movie looks fuckin' groovy.


Started playing Saturnalia, an Italian horror game but the art style makes me motion sick. So I'm replaying Catherine instead. As for multiplayer, I've been roped into Gundam & Elden Ring Co-op which I'm really enjoying. Hope y'all are enjoying '23 so far


Citizen Sleeper done and dusted, and an easy 9-10/10 for me. A solid adventure game that focuses on people just surviving the day to day. My ending felt satisfying even if it was somewhat bittersweet. But those types of endings are sometimes the best.


Thank you Renaud for sharing this meme regarding Twatty Tate. I can now sleep tonight knowing my team meeting in January won't be about him. Time to play some Citizen Sleeper and have some Bailey's and never think of him again.


Best movies of the year below. Aftersun takes the top spot; beautiful, dream-like, with outstanding cinematography and a gorgeous look at who we believe our parents to be, contrasted with who they really are.


These two bad boys can fit so much exceptional TV into their runtime. The Bear is Uncut Gems in a Chicago sandwich shop. Severance is Office Space by way of Stepford Wives. Give 'em a watch with your time off. They are my pick for TV of the Year.


Showed my girlfriend Klaus for the first time. Yes we both cried twice, and yes, we will probably cry again next year when we rewatch it. That movie is always a 5/5 for me.


So my steam wishlist includes Dwarf Fortress & Factorio now, and pay day is approaching. I fear for my spare time.


Tried watching the Muppets Christmas Carol with my partner to show it to her for the first time. I say tried, because it turns out she hated it so I had to turn it off halfway through. Can't win 'em all.


So that's God of War Ragnarok done. Better bosses, better story, better characters, better combat but atrocious pacing. An incredible experience that is easily up there with Elden Ring & Stanley Parable in the 'Best of the Year.' 10/10 despite the flaws


About TheLimoMakerone of us since 6:59 AM on 03.25.2015

'Sup fools, it's me, ya basic British boy.

Been on Destructoid for five years and counting now, but have been reading for this wholesome site since November 2010.

The community has welcomed me despite being as cynical as one can get, and for that I will always be grateful.
Despite my seemingly hard front, I'm a softie at heart and will always give you the time of day, whether it be on Destructoid, Discord or if I'm fortunate enough to be carried by you in an online game.

Story-driven games are my forte, along with horror games, RPG's and FPS games.
To be honest, I'm someone who will play absolutely anything I can get my hands on; I believe you can find excellent games in the strangest of places.

Also decided to add my Games of the Year from years past, just because I can't really place my thoughts elsewhere:

2010 - Nier

2011 - Portal 2

2012 - Spec-Ops: The Line

2013 - The Last of Us

2014 - Valiant Hearts

2015 - Undertale

2016 - Oxenfree

2017 - Persona 5: The Royal

2018 - Return of the Obra Dinn

2019 - Disco Elysium
