My Video Games Shopping List (Part III): Bright Colored Games for Mental Health

If you are worried about talking into the void and it makes you feel invisible, unworthy, neglected, unlovable, it’s okay. I am used to talking to myself and I am quite proud of it. I don’t care how introverted you are but humans are made to talk! So talk to the void if you need to release mental stress! There is no shame to it. I promise it will make you feel better. Isn’t that why people confess to the preacher? Well I hope your sins are not too big.

I need to talk and I must talk! If you are new to my blog, I like to make a list of three recommendations. This time it’s video games instead of movies. I did this shopping list a few years ago on my old blog when I was still a bit timid about online exposure. You can check them out here:

My Shopping List–Casual Games are Great!

My Video Games Shopping List (Part II)

In the upcoming winter days, I prefer playing bright colored games. It’s good for mental health if you are feeling a little down from all the gloomy weather and the Dark Cloud (do you like the pun? I still have yet to beat the game, hehe).

  1. Sakuna of Rice of Ruin

I live in the city and city life has its pros and cons, but these days it’s more cons ever since the pandemic hit. If you can work remotely, there is no point in living in the city. Transportation was the main factor why there are city dwellers like me. But on the plus size, things have been quiet in the city except during certain nights I can hear homeless people shouting. It’s really sad because some are suffering from mental illness. It really is a societal issue. Even before the pandemic, I often dreamed of going into the mountains or somewhere far from civilization so I can breathe nature. I think I found the perfect game: I can play as a farm girl. Yeah, I want to be a country girl for a change! It looks fun and its popping bright colors will sure lift anyone’s mood in the upcoming winter days.

2) Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of An Elusive Age – Definitive Edition

I need to escape from reality ASAP, did I mention I am stranded in the city? I played the demo and really like how immersive the game is. I feel transported into a different world that is less chaotic. I think this is the game I am going to play on my birthday! Some people hate being born close to Christmas, but not me, I am sure the only present I need for Christmas and birthday combined is a good game. Bright colored games= instant happiness.

3) Cuphead

Cuphead [Online Game Code]

I normally purchased pc games that are story-driven and that is where I play most of the indie titles. They can be quite relaxing to play before bedtime. For Cuphead, I am still debating whether I should purchase this on Steam or on PlayStation store. The illustration looks great and I am always up for an adventure so Cuphead made it to my list for the winter days!

I hope you enjoy my recommendations even though I haven’t played them yet! I guess I am just so excited I have to make a list. Hopefully you found something you like on the list as well and it will add a little sunshine to your life. Well that is it for now, bye bye.

Three Horror Series Worth Watching

Halloween is over but it doesn’t mean it will stop me from consuming all things horror-related as it is one of my favorite genres.  Why you may wonder? Because death is the biggest mystery of them all and I’m a big lover of the supernatural world. The genre if done right, teaches people how to live wisely. Typically, anything that is good for my brain, I will consume it.

Yes I am back with my list of three. Why three because it’s my favorite number. So three it is.

  1. Hell Girl
Hell Girl - Wikipedia

Yes I have been told that I am weird, it’s okay I am used to it. Misery loves company and Hell Girl is comforting to me. If you go around abusing people, eventually karma will get to you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Yes, that’s why I like this anime. It’s eerie, but justice will be served.

2) The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House (TV Mini-Series 2018) - IMDb

This was a very good series–inspired by Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House, I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I must confess though, I did not read the book until I watched this series. I like it so much that I bought the book. The book is also good, but it’s not the same story as the T.V show. I was hook. It’s extremely rare for me to binge watch shows. Yeah, I watched it on my laptop in my closet to get the pitch black movie theater experience. You should watch if you haven’t already. It’s well done compared to The Haunting of Bly Manor, which was rather a disappointment.

3) The Girl from Nowhere

Girl From Nowhere | Horror Amino

My work friend actually recommended this show to me last year and I finally finished watching it. It’s kind of similar to Hell Girl, but with a Thai flavor. I enjoyed each episode but there were a few I didn’t like much, especially towards the end. The series started off strong but ended weakly.

I know normally I like to crack jokes, but today feels a little heavy. If you have seen any of these shows, let me know what you think. Well that’s it for now. Bye bye.
