New in: NieR: Automata, Final Fantasy XIII, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! (DE)

I’ve had most of these lying around for a few weeks now. NieR: Automata was a birthday gift at the end of October and I got Xenoblade 3 a little bit before that.

Final Fantasy XIII was an eBay purchase, as this copy which looks like it’s new and contains the manual only cost me 6 euros. I know most people don’t like this game, but still, that really surprised me. I got Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster from Amazon on the same day.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz was an impulse purchase today. I went to the store to get Persona 5 Royal on Nintendo Switch originally, but then I saw this on the shelf and it was the last copy. I haven’t finished watching 2wei Herz yet, which is the second cour of the second season, so this was a good reminder for me to do that.

New in: Splatoon 3, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes and Metroid Other M

Fire Emblem was an impulse buy this week, since I have wanted to get it since it was announced. So was Metroid, actually. I have been wanting to add it to my Wii collection for a while and found a good price on eBay.

Splatoon, however, was pre-ordered for a while. I’ve been looking forward to this game for a long time. Recently, I took part in the Splatfest World Premiere for Team Rock and had a blast. I’m glad to finally be able to hold this game in my hands.

I pre-ordered Splatoon 3 online, hoping to be lucky and get the game a day earlier, like a lot of other people. The package was dropped off today (release day) at around 2:30 PM. Actually the tracking suggested it may even be delayed by one day. Next time, I will just go to the store and pick the game up myself.

Trying to live a healthy life is a pain

I’ve been ordered by my doctor to live a more healthy life. That mainly means changing my eating habits, doing more excercise and leaving the house more often. Needless to say, I am struggling with all of these.

Anyway, this is my progress for today. I’m mainly just walking around aimlessly in the city. Since it’s summer, I should probably take advantage of it and go outside at least once a week.

Still working on my eating habits. That one is a bit tougher.

Notice of service shutdown: qpost

qpost is a social network I started in Summer of 2018 when I was looking to build an alternative to Twitter. I spent a good chunk of my time on it between 2018 and 2020 and really enjoyed building it.

However, I have since come to realize that qpost is not going to replace Twitter and it shouldn’t. I no longer believe in the need for an alternative to Twitter. I believe the entire model of Twitter has aged poorly and should be replaced entirely. Neither do I believe in services that only exist to be “alternatives” to other flawed popular services.

Most existing Twitter alternatives are heavily politically influenced, which is something I never wanted qpost to be. The initial idea of a “censorship-free alternative with free speech” however seemed to make people believe otherwise. I often noticed people believing qpost was just another Gab or Parler.

The name did not really help either. I am not a marketing genius and didn’t come up with the name “qpost”, so I was upset to find out that it is mostly associated with Qatar Post and Q-Anon. It was incredibly hard to be seen and be taken seriously with a name like that.

These are all things that led to me deciding to shut down qpost. This is a decision I have made a long time ago and it is about time to follow through with it. I have moved on to other projects, and already shut down other deprecated projects of mine (namely Yoshino Chat Bot and Kostenlos-WLAN), so it only makes sense to do the same with qpost.

qpost will officially shut down on June 1st 2022. New registrations have been disabled as of the publication of this post and the Android app has been unlisted from the Google Play Store. After this date, all data including user accounts, posts, follows, favorites and anything else will be permanently deleted.

qpost allowed users to either create native accounts or sign up with Gigadrive accounts. Gigadrive accounts will not be affected by this shut down. Those who wish to convert their qpost accounts to Gigadrive accounts should contact

The source code of qpost was published under the GNU General Public License v3.0 and will remain as an archive on GitHub and GitLab.

Thank you very much for supporting this project.

The Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Delay

Nintendo just announced a delay for the launch window of The Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is now expected to release in Spring of 2023 after previously being announced to release in 2022.

I am not at all surprised by this to be honest. Back at E3 2021 when the release window of 2022 was announced I confidently said that I believe there will be a delay. Nintendo’s 2022 is already pretty packed and we still know next to nothing about this game so it was hard for me to believe they would really make a 2022 release date.

Regardless I am still excited for the game. It is very rare for me to complain about a delay since I will always prefer a polished experience over a rushed game.
