The Only good thing that has come out of this whole COVID-19 and social distancing, it’s all the sales on the Nintendo eShop and other sources of entertainment.
Social distancing is official – for me. Today, I have been instructed to basically move my office home. Take your monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse! Anything we would need to be able to comfortably and effectively work from home. Guess now there will be a lot of Zoom calls and more chats! Never thought we would get to this point and yet, here we are now.
I was having a conversation today, in a super-secret discord channel, about them video games. In the conversation, Zelda Breath Of The Wild was mentioned. Part of me feels Zelda-shamed that I haven’t been able to truly play and stick to this game. I purchased this game when I first bought my Nintendo Switch. What, like 3 years ago maybe? And I don’t think I never left the Plateau. I even remember an ex-coworker lending me the Game-Guide so I could actually play it and so we could geek-out about at work. Long story-short, I never got to play it and then I was laid off el-oh-el.
Anyhow, I need to play this game, I really do. I see images and videos all over the internet and I am always on aw! I have Amiibos related to the game, wallpapers on my phone and computer, a tattoo even, clearly I am a fan of the franchise and its lore. But can’t stick to the damn game!
Probably my biggest drawback or inability to play this game is how open and adventurous it is. These days I rather play something more lineal and with clear direction – I think. I always remember when I was supposed to prepare some dish, I had a hard time figuring out the ingredients, like somehow I was supposed to know that, but really. How the fuck was I supposed to know? I had to google the damn thing. And it also felt chroy, like I was doing chores all the time and dying a lot, that was also frustrating.
By the looks of it, it seems like we are also headed to some kind of quarantine situation here in the Idahos. Good excuse to jump-in maybe.
We shall see!
Tatsumi sets out on a journey to help his poor village. When he’s rescued by a band of assassins, he joins their fight against the corrupt government.
Another good anime show on the Netflix’s! I have been watching this one pretty much all week. I’m not gonna lie, I am pretty much an easy sell when it comes to anime shows. Give me a lot of action, blood and awesome weapons and I’m in. This sure has all of the above! It has an interesting setting, good action, cool fights and of course your typical Japanese over sexualized characters and whatnot, which it can get a little weird sometimes. It is what it is when it comes to that but it’s still a very good enjoyable show. So far the story it’s good and you really get a feeling for these characters and their motives. I am really into the story as see how it develops.
I give this one 🍫🍫🍫/🍫🍫🍫
Before I have complained about my Powerbeats Pro and the left earpiece to always being dead or with less power than the right one. Which has been annoying me for the last few weeks.
Today, I noticed something. I was playing some music, as you do, on the phone speakers when I decided to better play it on the HomePod. And saw this,
It’s like as if the left headphone never registered that it’s in the case. Could that be the reason why it’s always without charge? Because it’s always ‘searching’ or being somewhat active while in the case.
This game, Blasphemous, it had been in my Nintendo Wishlist since it came out and the other night, I finally bought it.
Blasphemous is a punishing action-platformer that combines the fast-paced, skilled combat of a hack-n-slash game with a deep and evocative narrative core.
I have been hesitant about buying this game, even after playing the demo, which it’s still available. The reason is because like many other games of this style, they tend to be somewhat difficult and a little frustrating.
But I can’t help myself, I love this genre of games, I love the pixel art and its style. Same thing happened when Shovel Knight first came out for the Nintendo 3DS. I fell in love with the pixel art and did play a big deal of it but never finished it. Same with The Messenger, although this one I stopped playing for other reasons, not because it was too difficult. And also with one of my most recent ones Katana ZERO, god knows I love this game but grrrr.
These games are my guilty pleasures. Mainly because, like I’ve said before, the pixelated art. I ❤️ pixels! But they aren’t the easiest games to play a lot of times and yet, I buy them, play them, love them and hate them!
Back to Blasphemous. I have played a few hours of it and so far I am enjoying it. And so far it doesn’t seem too difficult in the sense of the fighting style or the enemies but the gameplay itself. If you die, you re-spawn in one of these altar looking structures and just like Shovel Knight, you’ll have to track back we’re you died to get all your stuff back. These altar looking things are very self apart from each other so that can get annoying.
This game is as if Dante’s Inferno, Shovel Knight and Castlevania had a baby.
The pixel art is beautiful and so the background scenery. The story is creepy and very interesting and you encounter very weird and interesting characters along the way. But, I am afraid that I might not finish this game either, that I will get frustrated and rage quitting it but we will see.
I find it cute every time the AppStore tells me I should download something on WiFi (or something like that). To which I just hit Download “I’ve got unlimited data modafoka!!” 😅
The coronavirus situation in the United States and around the entire world has changed quite a bit since late February, which was approximately….. 50 years ago.
My favorite line of the entire article.

When I said that peanut butter in my oatmeal was my new jam, I should have been more clear. Peanut butter and a little bit of brown sugar in my oatmeal is my new jam. Today I tried just peanut butter and oatmeal, no brown sugar, and it is repugnant! el-oh-el

Now I’m afraid of even coughing at work or something like that. Afraid that if I do, people in yellow suits will appear out of nowhere, “Code 2319, Code 2319!”
This is something i have been thinking about since yesterday. The gym i play at is not a big place. It’s like a “mom and pop’s” type of thing and the times i go to, there’s very to almost no people. And yet, i am considering that maybe i should start work out at home.
I’m paranoid man!
I am not going to lie, this whole Coronavirus situation it’s starting to get me a little paranoid. A simple morning allergy makes go down a rabbit hole. Did I get it?, But from where or whom? It’s just morning allergies!, Is it though?
Again, I am getting paranoid, not scared – yet – but paranoid. Two of my business trips have been canceled, I am truly relieved by that. There is still one conference I signed up for that is not until June but I would not bee surprised if it gets either postponed or canceled.
These are weird times.
I have been listening to Spooky stories all morning. One even almost made me cry, I got to say. Regardless, these stories are creepy af (as the kids say).
