in Nintendo Discussion 4 hours ago

Bluepoint new game, which game is it?

Favourite Games: Final Fantasy-series is my favourite, with FFIX being my favourite game of all time. I like JRPG's in general, but I play almost any kind of games regardless of the genre.

Favourite Music: Rock and metal music mostly. I listen to a lot of other music as well.

Favourite Books: A lot of different fantasy books.
Lord of the Rings. Books by David Eddings have always been favourites of mine. The Witcher-series. The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. Too many others to list.

About Me: I'm a lifelong gamer, having started playing video games when I was just 3 or 4 years old, when my uncle bought me an NES that came packaged with Super Mario Bros., Tetris and Nintendo World Cup, as well as 4 controllers and a multitap. Ever since then video games have been one of my most important hobbies.
