    This only happens with the original mixes, this do not happen with dubbed movies to other languages or from other languages, maybe they can improve the sound mixing at the original but they just don't want to.

    Finished Persona 5 recently, I felt the endgame was very weak. The final boss fight was good, but the story just wasn't. Persona 4 will continue to be my favorite gameplay and music wise.

    Finished TMNT: Shredders Revenge, and I think is one of the (if not the) best Beat em ups ever. (I might be biases because Turtles in Time was my favorite from the genre growing up).

    Started with MGS: Peace Walker on the PS3 collection, I haven't play Metal Gear Solid games in a while, so the controls feel weird to me.

    I played Half Life 2: Episode 1 yesterday.

    I think the flashlight ruins the game for me, it was very inconvenient, it didn't cross my mind to search for a mod fixing it until I finish it. I'll probably play episode 2 next weekend, Episode 1 didn't have much story.

    I'm also playing Antichamber, which I started playing many years ago and it's better than I remember, the puzzles are very creative and so far I haven't gotten stuck.

    Just watched One Piece Film: Red at the cinema. I didn't have much expectations about it because almost all of the teasers where about Uta and not Shanks (or Luffy), but it ended up being pretty good.

    First few minutes were boring (almost like a filler episode) but when you get to the first plot-twist 15 minutes in, it starts to escalate quickly.

    Most of the songs are good, only one or two are cringy, but a bunch of them are genuinely bangers.

    Animation was crazy, very Madoka Magica-ish.

    Normally I don't watch movies from anime series[1], because at the end of the movie everything always goes back to normal, and nothing that happens in the movie affects the overall story; and this movie was not the exception, but it was enjoyable, I would watch it again.

    [1]: by this I mean anime movies not based on manga.

    There's one scene where you can listen (I at least you think you're listening) the thoughts of some enemies and you notice how scared they are of you. One of them says that he had just save enough money to bring his mom to the States from his home country, and that scene totally broke me. I had to take a pause from playing the game after that.

    I finished Metal Gear Rising yesterday, that's my new favorite game ever.

    It has everything: it's short, it's hard, it's fun, it's touching, the final battle is hard but never stressful, by that you should have master all the gimmicks in the game to win the battle.

    The DLCs are pretty good also, one with a lot of action and the other with a more stealthy approach which is refreshing after finishing the main story.

    There's only two things from the game I didn't like:

    • One area in a subway that's pitch black and confusing to traverse.
    • Sundowner's fight, which is plain boring.

    It's funny how they almost get the point that we men are also affected by the patriarchy but then discharge all their rage and discomfort over women.

    I finished Stray, I really wanted to enjoy this game, but I couldn't.

    The "free-roaming" parts (the slums and midtown) were a nothing but a chore and the opposite of fun, I like puzzles and exploration, but those were just boring. And the very last part of the game was just mediocre. That "emotional" scene at the ending was just laughable. Ruined the desire to 100% the game for me.

    I think the game would be a 10/10 removing those 3 parts, because I really liked the concept and the fact that everything looks so detailed, for instance, Clementine's apartment was so well decorated that it felt like a real life apartment where actual people live.

    Half Life 2, baby. Just wanted to play it after playing Stray, which I haven't finished yet because it gives me motion sickness (still don't know why, maybe is my widescreen monitor). So yeah, the game holds up incredibly well.

    I think the Source Engine has a lot of charm, or maybe I'm just being nostalgic, but its still one of the best game engines out there even after all these years.

    I finished Dark Souls on Sunday, it was a very good game that have aged pretty well.

    Elden Ring was my first souls game and at first I was worried I was going to miss some of the advanced gameplay elements (like jumping), but no, I actually liked the simpler mechanics, the bosses character design is more unique and interesting than in Elden Ring and the story is an equal mess.

    There was only two things I didn't like about the game:

    • It feels really claustrophobic: I know it's to demonstrate how your sword can clash with the walls if you don't have enough space, but it has too many narrow corridors and places where the camera is covered almost entirely by the character's back. But at least it doesn't have horrible platforming sections like in Elden Ring.
    • You can only equip two rings: most of the time I equipped Havel's ring to quick roll, so I pretty much just had room for one other ring depending of which zone I was on.

    I would probably try to 100% even though I didn't care about covenants or maybe just jump directly to Dark Souls 3.


    I also played Trine 2, it still looks amazing, specially on ultra-wide monitors.

    Last Saturday I finished GTA 4. So far it was the only major GTA release I haven't play and it has the best story of all of them, but it has two major flaws that probably will make me never play it again:

    • No purchasable properties/safehouses: you always have to travel a lot just back home to save your game, I ended up travelling in taxi to all the locations I needed to go, because you end up with a lot of money and nothing interesting to spend it on.
    • Friends calling you all the time: it's just annoying, you can put your phone in plane mode, but you have to do it every time you load the game, and still you'll have negative feedback from your friends if you forget to turn it off just one time.

    In the other hand, I liked:

    • The story: it's just amazing.
    • The Radio: the stations are very varied with music from Don Omar to Kreator.
    • The minigames: pool and bowling are two of the best minigames in the whole franchise, the only game with better minigames in my opinion was Red Dead Redemption.
