Blacker than a moonless night, hotter and more bitter than hell itself... that is coffee.

    It definitely felt like nearly every 2D game released during that era was operating with some sort of scarlet letter emblazoned across its figurative chest in the hearts and minds of gaming culture, which was such a shame. Not that there weren't still success stories in spite of that, but they were relatively few and they were hardly ever what anyone would call blockbusters.

    Dang it, this is always a danger whenever I post in the notes, I can never salvage my numerous typos with a quick edit. :p

    I spend a solid month-and-a-half in-game just bathing with old dudes so I could keep desperately pumping points into my Charm stat and it was all worth it.

    The Persona series isn't lacking in great villains, but I don't think I've ever hate one as much as Kamoshida.

    His manipulation, narcissism, entitlement, charm, fury, misogyny and pettiness, and the way so many other adults around him look the other way in order to protect the prestige he brings to their institution, are so striking and real. His variety of evil is utterly terrifying.

    Wow, good for the team over at Monolith Soft. Xenoblade 2 managing to break 1 million in just under a month is a real eye-opener.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    I've recently gone back to Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, which is a pleasant, stress-free way to pass the time during free moments throughout the day. I actually forgot I still had quite a few more of the town buildings to design, which I find to be the most satisfying part of the game; I still love the adorable little mom-and-pop konbini I made several months ago!

    I've also been trying to get into Tales of Zestiria, but I'm not sure yet if I'll be sticking with it. While I've enjoyed the Tales games I've played in the past, this one isn't quite clicking with me.

    It's real bummer to see another fun arcade racing series just sorta die off.

    Granted, Revenge is the only Burnout game I've played, but I was obsessed with that game for months after it came out.

    It's a bit of a shame that Fumoto won't be working on UFO 50 anymore, but Downwell was a phenomenal game and I have no doubt he will be a part of great things at Nintendo.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    After spending roughly 170 hours playing through two profiles on PC, I wasn't sure if the Switch version of Stardew Valley would be able to get its hooks into me the same way, but sure enough, I've managed to put in 15 hours over the last five days. Turns out that, when I no longer have to be tethered to either a television or a computer, I may actually just keep playing Stardew Valley until I die of starvation.

    The positive feedback loop of SDV's first two and a half years, where you're constantly getting rewarded for all the effort you put in, is an almost dangerously perfect fit with handheld gaming.

    The 3DS is going down fighting to the last. Godspeed, old warrior.
