Many things already happened in 2023: the humiliating Kevin McCarthy, Damar Hamlin's tragedy (and recovery), the great Brock Purdy (and 49ers' No.2 seed), and so on. But the main reason I couldn't put something for days was Steam Deck.
Specifically, I'm obsessed with Chained Echoes. At first, I was interested in it because it was an indie game developed by a solo developer - Matthias Linda, but it put me in a reminiscence of my old days - when I played Final Fantasy 6 first time. I'll talk more about it when I finish the game, but for now, I can tell that my best purchase of the last year was Steam Deck. The only downside would be the battery; I need a 45W power to play games - it's not so mobile. But it is so accessible and makes me feel zero obstacles running into a game. It has made me play something again; I'm so grateful for that.
