Ya ever reach the point in a book or game where you step back and really think “... Wait a minute, what in the Sam Hill is going on? How did we end up here???” Well, I’m at that point with Deadly Premonition 2. York voice actor interview here.



 
 
 

I'm becoming convinced that the best movies of all time are really just about... movies.



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

So, I remember it being not very great, but there WAS already a Yakuza movie—directed by the definitely great Takashi Miike! I feel like every article I’ve seen talking about the new film pretends this don’t exist, so, y’know, here!

Treating myself after a longish workweek (Oh si?) to a massive, salsa verde-dripping (Guácala...) burrito (¡Que hermosa!) of rice, black beans, grilled chicken, onions ‘n zucchini, topped with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa roja (¡Ay dios!) RIP SAM


 
 
 

I hope you’re all having a relaxing Saturday evening! I devoured an okonomiyaki, rice, curry, and am playing Halo for the first time in six years; I’m getting a contact high. (Also PC shopping is a rush!)

OHMYGOD WHY WAS I NOT NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY AND PERSONALLY ABOUT PUKNIN

 
 
 

What’s the temperature on the Split Pad Pro? I’m splurging a bit... and always eyed this. I constantly play my Switch portable, Pro Controller in hand, laying the console down; I avoid using the Joy-Con analog sticks when I can, etc. Any users here?


 
 
 

Mamma mia! I finished The Wonderful 101 two nights ago... and it’s all I want to play??? I went from near-hatred to loving this game?? What the heck!
