  1. Nintendo says the Switch Lite is not replacing the Nintendo 2DS / 3DS handheld devices... Yeah, right. ๐Ÿ™„ Let's be honest. The Lite is the perfect replacement. ๐Ÿง
  2. Keep them coming. Gonna make a list of this. Listened to 38 releases in 2019 so far. Still have to pick my favorites.
  3. Listening to this right now. Really amazing so far. (track 3)
  4. One of my all time favorite games of the last years. Love it.

  7. I'm not a vegetarian or vegan. We just consume less meat and other animal products like cow milk. I'd say we substitute more than half with soy, peas, beans, grains, vegetables, and especially green lentils and plant milk. I think it can be quite hard to completely give up on bacon and ground meat. Why does it have to taste so good? But we try the best we can / the best we are willing to go without. Flexitarian I think it's called. My sister is vegan. My brother and mother are vegetarian. My father is omnivore. We all used to be omnivore a decade back.
  8. Episodes - Surprisingly good dry-comedy drama series about 2 writers trying to make a tv-show in Hollywood. Stars Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig from the absolutely brilliant comedy show Green Wing, and Matt LeBlanc from Friends. Liked it. Shameless - Drama-Comedy about a family living and coping with poverty and daily life. It's ok, but there are very few funny moments, character development is weird, story has lots of plot holes,... I like the concept though, and some of the actors are good. Not getting any better by the season. I think some people like it because of the shock value, and/or connectivity to the characters? Dunno. I think I would like it betters as a more realistic in-depth drama / commentary. Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Comedy about a police department. It's ok. Meh. The humor is not my cup of tea at all. Don't like the Jake Peralta character. So that doesn't help. Reminded me a bit of The Thin Blue Line with Rowan Atkinson. Friends - Was fun to watch it again after all the years. It's ok. Addictive. Parks and Recreation - Comedy about the daily happenings in the department of Parks and Recreation in a small town. Love it. Great dry absurd awkward humor. Very welcoming and warm. Good dialogue. Amy Poehler / Leslie Knope is really good in this. One of our new favorite shows. House of Cards - Just started watching. Seems interesting so far. Temptation Island - Reality tv in which 4 couples are separated and then dropped on an exotic island with singles... to test their relationship? I don't know why, but I like watching this, well, the series from Belgium-Netherlands that is. A guilty pleasure. Doctor Who - Adventure series. My gf liked the seasons with David Tennant as the doctor. But the whole Doctor Who thing is not for me though. I feel it has too many plot-holes and dumb stuff going on. Guess it's more for young adults.
  9. Finished The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It's a good open-world action-adventure sandbox game. Beautiful art-style and many different environments. It's also very fun addictive to play. You'll easily spend hours upon hours doing random stuff and wandering about. However, the dungeons, music, side-quests, puzzles, characters and story are only just ok. It's not a perfect game at all. I think some reviewers only played the first few hours and didn't bother to finish the game before writing their review. It's not groundbreaking either. Other open-world action-adventure sandbox have done a better job in my opinion. It's mostly very different from other Zelda games in the series. But Breath of the Wild was certainly refreshing, beautiful, interesting, quite fun, addictive and the perfect switch-console seller. Just started playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Already like this type of game more than botw. Gonna buy and play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in 2 years from now, once I've played more games in my library. Bought a PlayStation 2 USB Dance Pad (the ones saying "Stay Cool!" in the middle) secondhand. Me and the gf use it to play StepMania and Crypt of the NecroDancer. Really fun actually. Also great for house parties, I think, if we would ever have a house party, lal. Bought South Park: The Stick of Truth. Gonna play it in the very near future. Also playing The Witcher 3 at the moment. What an amazing open-world action role-playing game. Very immersive in every aspect. Only thing that distracts me is the heavy wind, lal. Might mod that. Bought some more old time golden classics. (just because my backlog wasn't big enough as it was) Over the last months: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Assassin's Creed 2, The Secret of Monkey Island, SimCity 4, Mount & Blade: Warband, Machinarium, To The Moon, Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, The Stanley Parable, Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale, Braid, Anno 1404, Half-Life, The Talos Principle, Populous: The Beginning, Europa Universalis 2, Risen, Medal of Honor Allied Assault, Silent Storm, Rayman 2: The Great Escape, Undertale,...

  11. The Epic store is somewhat ok, but the best thing is that they give away about 1 game every 2 weeks for free. I now have: Axiom Verge, Subnautica, Super Meat Boy, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Jackbox Party Pack. Awesome, great interview. Gonna check out that game.
  12. From the makers of Embrace of the Serpent (El abrazo de la serpiente)! Nice. Gonna watch.
  13. Loved Westworld. Season 1 was awesome. But season 2, I dunno.
