6th Generation thoughts

Before I get into my main topic I'd like to address where I've been as of late. While I've still been around to comment and share my opinions on stories, I can't be there as much as I used to be. Basically my work cracked dow...

Where In The World Is GoofierBrute?

  Answer: in the back of a Camaro, in a Jack in the Box parking lot, fapping to his Rosalina, Lucina, and Palutena amiibo while his Pac-Man amiibo and a homeless man peeing outside give him a thumbs up. This has been "Wh...

Ask me a question, tell me to state my prime directives

Since Occams and Pixie both did one of these I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon as well because I'm unoriginal and shameless sometimes. Plus it gives me an excuse to post a new cBlog since I haven't done too many ...

Hey look! Vergil gameplay from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Holy shit! Seph posted a blog! Capcom released some gameplay showing off Vergil in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. I sent a tip to Destructoid about it, but nothing has popped up on the front page about it and I'm impatient as hell to talk about some of this crazy shit.

Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?
