Good Jaerb, you say? Hmm. Looks to be well-received. Ah, but I have enough to play on the Switch already. I need to stop buying $20 eShop games every chance I get (or maybe just eShop in general, as they just continue to pile up.)

Sleep: Not playing anything
I can't say that I've ever wanted to go to one of these things, but I do remember a time not even that long ago - or was it? Time gets kinda screwy when you never get sleep... - when I'd get excited to see what kinds of crazy shit they'd roll out with. Somewhere along the line, everyone involved, from the companies to their customers, just got really cynical, and while it was nice to see some bright-eyed indie developers get some time this year, most of it is, "Hey. Yeah. New Call of Duty. FUCK YOU YOU'LL BUY IT!" And they're right; Devolver made the joke that, "You don't even enjoy video games anymore," and it really is starting to seem that way; people just buy whatever thing advertising rams down their throat without really thinking about whether or not it interests them. Sure, they pay it good lip service, but that sounds more like someone who just bought a grill and is grilling every single meal for no reason other than to justify the purchase. We're all just going through the motions. I don't think that's just a result of my getting cynical, either, because I've been cynical most of my life.

Hell, when I did my usual routine of checking out just the titles that had names that sounded interesting (a pretty significant number), I'd estimate that about 1/3 of them were games that I already knew, some of which I'd even played already. When I did check out the ones that sounded interesting, I didn't find a single game that I care enough to follow. The best one was Strangers of Paradise, and only because it was an AMAZING shitshow; I couldn't breathe or see for most of that 2 and a half minutes. Seriously, they didn't even play the first game; Chaos was a surprise boss at the end that nobody even knew about, even the protagonists. Still not going to play it, because the combat looks clunky just from the footage we saw, and you know that's the best of what it has to offer.

I'm going to stick to what I usually do: check out SteamGifts, GOG, itch, and Humble daily to see what kinds of weird new games I can find. It's worked pretty well so far, and it's brought me more interesting stuff than E3 ever has.

How are you finding Golf Story?

The two issues that significantly dragged the experience down for me were the lack of the grid/graph perspective when putting, and, more significantly, the inability to quickly retry a challenge. I'm bad at golf games so I spent more time than I would care to admit just mashing the confirm button to boot myself out of a challenge I was failing at so that I can try again.

Aside from that, I love everything else about it. I'm hoping the sequel is a bit more polished.

Well, it's that time of the year again. Top 10 time!

Top 10 of 2019:
(In no particular order)
1. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III
2. Return of the Obra Dinn
3. Enter the Gungeon
4. Super Mario 3D Land
5. Devil May Cry 5
6. Resident Evil 2
7. Marvel's Spider Man
8. DETROIT: Become Human
9. Celeste
10. Furi

My least favorite game of the year was Kingdom Hearts III.

2019 was a great year for me. I managed to get my Master's Degree and nail an internship so I didn't have much time for gaming later on in the year. This year I plan to either dip to get a Nintendo Switch or I might have to be patient and wait for the Playstation 5. I'm really excited for 2020, because there's so many games I'm looking forward to that are coming out this year!

Anyway, I'm really happy to share this all with you and wish you well in the new year.
