    REVIEWED IT! Twin Breaker: A Sacred Symbols Adventure

    Hey, I'm Eldar.

    Thanks for checking out the show! Alright, so for some context. This is a solo podcast where I talk about things in the games industry that resonate with me. The conversation usually boils down to me breaking down some of my favorite games, sharing some of my opinions, talking about my gaming history, what have you. I like talking about my genesis as a gamer, from playing JRPGs on my Playstation, mascot platformers on N64, shooters on Xbox 360, and more.

    I'm an avid Xbox achievement hunter, with well over 110,000 gamerscore- and I'm also a trophy collector on PSN, with over 6000 trophies. I love obscure titles like Dark Cloud, Onimusha, random Dragonball games, stuff like that.

    Let's talk, hangout, and talk games. Welcome to the club, hope to see you soon.
