Hello there! I'm from Italy and I like turtles a ton, in case you haven't noticed. Feel free to shoot me a message or add me to your Multitap!
I tend to dislike most new trends in the gaming industry. I stick with Nintendo's consoles and indies; I don't have enough money or time to handle a backlog for multiple systems. I stick to series I like, but I'm very open to new experiences. I love platformers the most.
CURRENT BACKLOG GOALS
Honestly, just get back into the groove of playing games for now.
RATINGS / COMMENT REVIEWS
Ignore all my ratings for now.
The site update will introduce the ability to give half-star ratings, which will extend my rating scale a lot. I'll re-rate every game in my collection when the update is released.
Don't check out my comments either, because you won't find many good opinions there. I plan to write more detailed thoughts in there one day. 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 mark a game as completed when I feel like it. I do have a few personal guidelines that 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 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. I also might not play them, even when 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, for Pokémon in particular, 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 rarely return to a game after updates, free or paid. Caring about DLC too much would be a nightmare.
- Will disappear in the remake. Right now, I use this for three kinds of games:
1) compilations of games that I don't want to play through; will be marked as "Retired".
2) games that don't have an ending; will be marked as "Endless".
3) Bubble Bobble: Double Shot; will also be marked as "Retired", unless my guilt is too strong.
Some people use this for multiple versions of a single game too, but I just don't add those to my backlog.
- Unused, except for Mario Kart DS.
Large DLC expansions released after the original game's release are either counted separately from the base game, or aren't added at all if I don't want to play through them.
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.
