    This song has became a meme in latin-america in the last three or two years because how catchy it is. I love the sax solo.

    Translated lyrics:

    If you had always told me the truth
    If you had answered when I called you
    If you had loved when I loved you
    You would be the woman of my dreams
    
    If you didn't know how to love
    now you can go away
    
    If you knew what I've suffered for you
    Having to forget about you without knowing why
    And now you call, you want to see me
    You swear you've changed and you want to come back
    
    If you did not know how to love
    now you can go away
    
    Get away from me, there's nothing more to talk about
    With you I lost, I already have someone to win with
    
    I knew that there was no one who gave you what I gave you
    That nobody has cared for you like me
    That's why I understand why you are here
    But time has passed and I have changed too
    
    If you didn't know how to love
    now you can go away
    
    Get away from me, there's nothing more to talk about
    I lost with you, I already have someone to win with
    
    I knew that there was no one who gave you what I gave you
    That nobody has cared for you like me
    That's why I understand why you are here
    But time has passed and I have changed too
    
    //If you didn't know how to love
    now you can go away//

    I don't mind open world games, I just didn't like how you level up in The Witcher, you can't explore around safely because if you go too far a simple boar can kill you in one hit if you're too under-leveled.

    So it would be much better if it was just linear RPG or an open world game without the leveling up mechanics.

    The Last of Us and Uncharted games.

    I like how polished they are, but the movement is too natural that feels uncanny to me. Also I really don't play games for the story so most of the time with any game I just skip the cutscenes or wait until they finish while staring at my phone.

    I always try to keep distance from all the gaming drama and because of that I'm still out of the loop. Why is Epic so hated by gamer? (beside the "Fortnite bad" excuses)

    Oh wow, I actually remember back in 2008 or so, a friend lent me some DVDs with random animes including this one, but I never got the opportunity to watch it.

  8. Which is Your Favorite B-Tier Anime?

    By B-Tier anime I mean anime that is "average", nothing that you would consider the best-anime-in-the-world, or so-bad-that-is-good, or something that you would have strong opinions about; but...

    By B-Tier anime I mean anime that is "average", nothing that you would consider the best-anime-in-the-world, or so-bad-that-is-good, or something that you would have strong opinions about; but animes that are just "ok" but can hook you up from start to finish.

    The best that would fit this category for me is Uninhabited Planet Survive, which is about some kids in the future who get space-shipwrecked in an unknown planet. The premise is so simple but every episode is enjoyable and have a decent overall story.
    It's not the best anime in the world nor it tries to be (it's mostly aimed for children), the animation is ok, the soundtrack is nothing special, and the characters aren't very original but they feel real (every one with their own flaws).

    So, it was an interesting experience for me to find an anime that fit this category, and I would love to read if anyone else feels the same with any other average anime.

    I read this post 50 minutes ago and got stuck 40 minutes playing. I had to re-map my keys though, because I prefer to rotate with the up arrow but the patch works as intended.

    I wasn't expecting anything, really, maybe just more info on SMT5, but I knew they weren't going to say anything about it. But... It's nice to see Skyward Sword finally on switch and I'm looking forward for the physical release of Hades, also I ran to download the demo for the Triangle Strategy game which I'm loving already.

    So yeah, it was ok at the end.

    1. Do you feel that you need to hide your gaming from others?
      Not necessarily, but talking about games is not something I do often with my friends, I only play single player games and because of that I don't need to befriend a lot of gamer friends.

    2. Are you honest with others about the amount of time you spend playing games, the types of games you play, or the importance you ascribe to them?
      I don't play as much as before, so there's no reason to be ashamed of gaming too much, also I have never been asked IRL how much time I play.

    3. Do you feel that people judge your gaming habits or status as a gamer negatively?
      Some people may see it as childish and in some context that makes sense, but at least the people whose opinion I care about don't see it as a bad thing.

    4. Do you identify yourself as being a part of a broader gaming culture?
      There's a lot of bad things in the gaming community such as homophobia and misogyny, so the further away I can put myself from those echo chambers, the better.
