With all of the risk that delivery workers are taking on, I'm going to hold off on any unnecessary purchases until this stuff settles down. I just got something wholly unnecessary delivered to my door and thought "why'd I ask someone to do this for me?"


In the RE4 remake I hope they change everything except they use literally the same voices. Same lines, same literal recordings. Done.


I don't know if I'm just fucking dumb or if FF7 is legit hard, but I feel like I seldom have full control over combat in this game. It's all very cool looking, but most of the time I'm just stumbling through encounters. More detailed thoughts below:


This is one piece of dumb text art that I'd totally hang in my house. "We like to chill at a cafe!"


Having given up on 360 emulation, I instead decided to give Lost Odyssey a spin on my actual 360 and maybe I'm hyper late to the party, but this is just FF7 but more Westernized. Sorta.


So there's no way to pre-load FF7 before midnight? Am I missing something?


Well then, just a PSA on Xbox 360 emulation at the moment: That stuff still needs time in the oven. I was able to rip my copy of Lost Odyssey, the emulator saw it and ran it only as far as the main menu screen.


Cleared the last boss in RE3 remake on Nightmare difficulty.... and man, that was very demanding.


So I'm what I assume is about 1/3rd of the way through RE3 Remake. Quick opinions in the comments, as someone who has played and re-played the games in this series many many times.


Since I'm working from pajamas now, I can stay up and play re3 right? I'm not even that pumped for this game, after the reviews. But...


Been playing metroid prime 1 and 2 with mouselook on PC. It's very good! Highly recommended. The mod is called Primehack.


It's finally happened. Every app I regularly use now has an officially supported dark mode. Fucking finally.


It's maybe too upsetting for the current moment, but the film 1917 is a really really good watch. I came into it knowing only that it's about WW1. It's a real emotional journey.


Have some more Vivaldi this evening.


I'm working from home as of tomorrow. Very thankful for that to A) be an option and B) still be working in general. Gratitude aside, my workday will now include ~75% more Vivaldi than it previously did.


Got through the RE3 demo. And all I got to say is that save room music. Oh man. That was a sense memory like getting the first smell of a warm spring day. My mind saw the color of my best friend's bedroom walls in middle school.


At this point, work is much more of a stressor than this damn virus. I've been barely doing anything else. In the Great Work From Home Surge of 2020, IT departments have a lot of work to do...


You can track when this outbreak began to really take traction in the news and in the minds of most people when it went from "corona virus" to "coronavirus" as one word.


So, if E3 2020 is canceled then that means one thing... they're bringing back Spaceworld, baybeeeeee!!!


My initial impressions with CoD Warzone are not great! The menus are very confusing, full of features only applicable to the paid modes, and the battle royale itself took 10 minutes in the lobby because is insisted on 120 people joining, then it crashed.


I finished The New Pope just now. I am maybe not going to be this impressed by a TV show again in a long long time. Chernobyl was technically impressive, and competently written. It doesn't hold a candle to the kind of craft happening in New Pope.


If I had anything close to a personal wish to be granted, it would be this: to have a private, honest conversation with Miyamoto. I've thought about that for a long time. I wouldn't record it or write about it.


ALSO, this August will be the 5th year anniversary of Qtoid. 2015... damn. Mark it on the calendar's, people.


You ever do that thing where you're at your computer, scrolling through Qtoid and then you pick up your phone to reflexively refresh Qtoid lol


I'm totally ok with the FF7 Remake battle system. It does seem a little too flashy for its own good (a cutscene ate my limit break during the boss fight) but you can do some wild shit with this combat system.
