The software side of Gen Con 2009 is lacking this year. It’s depressing to see so few videogames lining the West side of the convention floor. With crushed spirits early in the morning, I turned my attention to the costumed peoples roaming the Indianapolis Convention Center for a temporary but cheerful lift. The gallery below is an excellent representation of what I’m seeing at the event. There are a few costumed and scantily clad booth babes, more than a few pirate wenches, an angry Twi’lek, togas, Solid Snake, and much more.
There’s a reason the girl in Twi’lek garb and paint (in the gallery) isn’t the happiest camper. She arrived roughly an hour before the show floor officially opened to attendees. As I debated walking to the other entrace, she rushed into my vision and frantically started trying to open the doors. The people around me instantly whipped out their cameras and asked for pictures. She obliged, of course, but obviously had somewhere to go fast. After about two minutes -- more and more people started snapping images -- her face twisted from complacency to anger.
Eventually, she clicked off the lightsaber and hurried the other way. I hope she got to where she needed to go without being hassled too much. As she bolted, a guy on my periphery exclaimed, “Run Twi’lek, run!” Poor girl.

Occams Naruto 4 installs on my PS4 and it updates. Game says it can't run story mode during installation. Nothing's installing though. Restarted PS4. Reinstalled. Nothing. Fucking dumb.StriderHoang This plays in my head every time I tell myself to stay determined.Gamemaniac3434 Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity.
A night well spent.
Fuck us all. Ckarasu So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.FlanxLycanth Justin Timberlake blasts Kuma in the ass and dies.ooktar I'm loving these fighting game elitists trying to give me shit because I criticized Street Fighters Fight Money business model.Nathan D Thanks to Dtoid I now have this gif in my life, and I can't stop laughing. I seriously can't get over it.
Jiraya Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you) Mike Wallace I stayed up late last Saturday writing a Dead Space 4 proposal outline. Solved every plot hole, had plenty of badass moments. This is the state I live in, people. Torchman WHY DO THEY GET SOUNDS BUT PIKACHU AND CHARIZARD CAN'T.

Guess who's never listening to Zack Furniss again? :-/EdgyDude Deadpool spoilers: He gets cancer.beargreasey So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.CoilWhine I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.Nekrosys I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.Parismio New Splatfest is Pokemon Red vs Pokemon Blue.
