Hey! I'm from Italy and I like Koopas a ton
. Feel free to shoot me a message or add me to your Multitap. (Just make sure I can add you back!)
I dislike most trends in today's video gaming industry. I despise FPS and battle royale games, still love platformers, and would hate the possibility of gaming becoming online-only.
I go by the name "TartaKoopa" on my Switch and a few other sites, and I plan to re-name myself on here as soon as possible.

RATINGS / COMMENT REVIEWS
Ignore all my ratings for now.
The site update will introduce the ability to give half-star ratings, like 3 1/2, which will extend my rating scale a lot. I'll re-rate every game in my collection when the update is introduced. Keep in mind that, for me, 3-star ratings still mean that the game is good and that it's very worth playing if you like the genre.
Don't check out my comments either, because you won't find many good opinions there. I am currently writing longer and more detailed opinions, and I'll like Pastebins in the Comments, but it's going to take me a while for obvious reasons. In the meantime, feel free to ask me anything you want about the games I've played; provided it hasn't been too long since I last played it and don't remember anything, I'll be more than happy to answer your questions.
- I never saved the game, although I might have tried the first few minutes of it.
- Obtained save data.
- Beat the final boss and watched the credits, unless the credits are clearly fake and the true version is not
locked after post-game content.
- To be honest, I mark a game
when I feel like it, but I do have a few personal rules I try to follow:
- Achievements are never
required; neither are best ranks if they don't unlock anything.
- If there's an in-game percentage counter, only when it says "100%" (or, if I know that the % can go past 100, whatever the max is) I can
said game, unless what is left is an extremely time-consuming and tedious task, or I can't find a way to increase the counter anymore.
- I don't have to finish the game at the hardest difficulty (I tend to use Normal) unless that's explicitly required for 100%. I find that a chore. I may make some exceptions; if I enjoy the game enough I'll play through harder difficulties, or I might not play them even if required for 100% if they're too difficult or tedious.
- I don't care about NG+ if it doesn't unlock anything.
- For games like Pokémon, finishing the usual monster encyclopedia isn't required. However, finishing the Regional Pokédex (or at least as much as I can without a paired version) is
- If updates or DLC extend the game, I only have to finish all content in the base version of said game.
- I use this for three kinds of games:
1) compilations of games that I don't want to play through
2) games that don't have an ending (as far as I know)
3) Bubble Bobble: Double Shot
Some people use this for multiple versions of a single game too, but I just don't add those to my backlog.
- Unused, because will be removed with the site's remake.
As for large DLC expansions released after the original game's release, I do count them as completely separated games if I play them (like Slime-san's "Blackbird's Kraken" expansion), or I simply don't add them at all if I haven't bought them or haven't downloaded their patch.
MY USE OF "ORIGINAL SYSTEM"
Instead of marking the original system for which a game was released, I use this to specify on which system I am playing said game. This is because I don't actually own a GBA or a Wii, but instead I use a DS Lite and a Wii U to play games for those systems.
Oh, I also have a VGM playlist! Feel free to check it out if you're curious. [Link]
