Happy Saturday! I hope your time off is relaxed, or your work unbegrudged. If your day isn’t going the way you’d like, maybe take solace knowing that 13 years ago today, in its home country of Japan, the greatest game of all time was released.


 
 
 

Looking to start a manga series! Narrowed it down a bit if anyone has any opinions...


 
 
 
 
 

I'm mostly a 1960-75 kind of guy, but then I catch myself in a '90s mood and I feel like a teenager. Listened to this shit LOUD driving home last night.



 
 
 
 

Literally three minutes in and Control's first collectible is fascinating me. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?? NO KETCHUP??


 
 
 
 
 
 

In this house we respect our wieners. And sweet potatoes.


 
 
 

There's a fuckton of roast chicken in Castlevania 64.

 
 
 

Barring acts of Earth-splitting intensity, this time next week I’ll have started work at Barnes & Noble. Retail: The Final Frontier!


 
 
 

Me last night: “I wonder if Titanfall 2 is still amazing.” Titanfall 2:


 
 
 

Oh wow... why didn’t I start Mega Man Legends sooner!


 
 
 
 

Starting to feel empty when I don’t have a Castlevania game lined up in front of me immediately. That’s Symphony of the Night down and in the books!


 
 
 

So uh... When is it exactly that Evangelion becomes the best thing ever? Also, bump: The developments with the Fourth Child and bureaucratic intrigue are actually interesting! Though things are feeling a little left field-ish...


 
 
 

Saturday question! What are some of your favorite towns in video games?Being liberal with “town,” defining it as less Liberty City in GTA and more the like the segments in Persona 4; not the entire game world, basically, but pockets of it.


 
 
 
 

Hit the Best Pastries Known to Sam again, and was so struck... I doubled up! Strawberry eclair; almonds, whipped cream, custard. A favorite. Not big on chocolate, but that looked too pretty to pass up! Mousse, ganache, and I think a little fudge.


 
 
 

Okay, who’s read House of Leaves? I’m less than halfway through it but I think this might be a top ten favorite book for me. I have never before read a book the way I’m reading this.


 
 
 

Shady? Maybe. But worth the potential PayPal-refund hassle for a good deal!


 
 
 
 

Started Evangelion the other day and keep thinking about this bit of animation. Anime tropes have a way of dissatisfying me but I see why people like it already. I also realize how goddamn amped I am for Daemon x Machina.

Well, borderlands continues the series tradition of having terrible boss fights for single It’s always nice to kill 90% of a boss and then have to start over because there wasn’t anything else to kill to get back

While that would be a rather unnerving sight, having that many spiders gathered in 1 area would cause a drastic decrease of insect
