Gaming

All “Gaming” blog posts. This category is already self-explanatory but since I need to fulfill the SEO requirements (the red icon really bothers me) I will act now like those ridiculous gaming journalists and give a review about the games I played on either PlayStation or Steam. These posts are simple and will not give a rating system since I don’t have criteria for those.

↝ You might see some “Travel” or “Life” categories here since my hubby is a retro game collector so we will be visiting some arcade games and claustrophobia-triggering stores to fulfill his growing collection and my game collection as well.

↝ Since it’s all about gaming, the topics that will be posted here are ranging from current game style to old-school, retro video gaming. I might share a 30-sec to 1-min video clip because I want to show off with my cheap laptop that can only handle 1 minute of OBS recording and also I want to use my throwaway Youtube account — I am just pushing my resources.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir — Game Review

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a stunning remake of its 2007 PlayStation 2 counterpart, simply titled Odin Sphere. Fans of Vanillaware are familiar with the artistic excellence standard for their titles, from the breathtaking background and character designs to the smooth animation and gameplay to match; If you’ve played Oboro Muramasa Rebirth or Dragon’s Crown, then you know what to expect from Odin Sphere Leifthrasir.

Upon the start of the game, we’re treated to a short series of cutscenes regarding the Cauldron ownership and Titrel ring that started a war across Erion, ending with Gwyndolyn knowing of her sister’s death. After the intro, we meet a cute kid named Alice and her cat… Socrates.

Muse Dash — Game Review

It’s been a while since I posted something here. Honestly, things got really busy around my last post [xx] and this is the only day that I could get a breather or at least a good day to finally compose a blog post.

So, Rhythm games — I’m a sucker for those kinds of genres since I love music and how gameplay differs based on the difficulty you’ve chosen, I can casually play just by choosing Easy and Medium mode and go hardcore when choosing Master mode. I shared my comments about a not so obscure rhythm game before [xxx] and I might create another blog post about it again since it released 3-5 DLCs since 2020 entered, but wait that’s not the reason I’m making this post!

Grand Theft Auto V — Game Review

Grand Theft Auto V is the latest game from the Grand Theft Auto series, released in September 2013 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, eventually reaching the Playstation 4 and Xbox One the following year. Just like its predecessors, Grand Theft Auto V is an M-rated action game featuring a massive open-world environment to roam, filled with countless activities to do. It’d take hours to simply traverse the map in its entirety.

The story revolves around three (3) protagonists that were suddenly connected due to a simple repo task and ends up with them killing everyone that fucks them over as the story progresses.

Visiting Seoul — with Arcades and Street-food

At the beginning of May, my family and I returned to South Korea and revisited Seoul for the fourth time in which we stayed for almost a week. So why did we revisit Seoul yet again? — The original reason was to see a concert which unfortunately ended up getting canceled, thus we planned an entirely different set of goals for the trip, as my waifu wanted to do some game arcade-hopping around Seoul, have a quick meet up with a friend, as well as a little bit of street food-tripping in Myeongdong.

Despite the early-Summer forecast on that week, surprisingly the weather there was a bit cold, feeling akin to early Spring weather, especially at night time, unlike here in the Philippines where it has been blazing hot and humid all day for the past two months.
