February just seems to want to beat me up. Been mildly accident prone this month. Bruised shins, packing material in my eye, cardboard cutting me, etc. Had some kind of fatigue attack last week, too. Staying in and treating myself today. Send fairies.


Maxed out all combat jobs to 80 in FFXIV, got the Amaro mount for the achievement. An Amaro is like a green humpbacked chocobo. While on the mount, "On Our Fates Alight" plays, which sounds like something out of FFX-2.


Recent stuff that came in. Return to the Obra Dinn coming soon, too!


Much to the dismay of Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will see abolishment of belts from player inventories.


This is pathetic. A thousand people gathered here today to worship a rat.


I think I'm a chronic double/triple dipper now because I've gone most of my adult life w/ jobs that lay off people on a whim and had to sell my games to stay afloat. Fear of losing stuff. I have 3 copies of VA-11 Hall-A, which I only just got around to.


Sure, everyone likes the giant lady. But it's really just a bunch of short people looking at me silently, sometimes whispering "mommy" and slowly orbiting my waistline. Sometimes they speak and I refuse to step on them.


Finally getting around to watching Harley Quinn in full on HBO Max rather that hacked up YT clips and it's really good over all. Helped me laugh a lot in these crazy weeks.


Cocaine Mitch sounds like it has the potential for an Occams band name.


I know Sterling said it today, but I have been thinking for a while how all these dystopian/apocalyptic games will have to work harder to compete with reality. I'll still allow Deus Ex, Resident Evil, Doom and SMT, it's just they look preferable to today.


My fangamer t-shirts have been stuck in Arizona for the last 3 weeks. Finally arrived yesterday. Snake: "Kept you waiting, huh?"


I now have 35 tabletop gaming dice. Got glow-in-the-dark ones to make sure I don't lose them all too quickly. It's also the strategy I took on to not lose guitar picks.


YouTube discovered you could ban bigots, conspiracy theorists and seditionists as well as remove their content today. I've known this since I moderated FFXI sites.


Gonna focus on getting Hyrule Warriors and the first Ori game done first, but I've begun inching toward my resolution to familiarize myself with DnD and CC2020 TTRPGs. Got my 5e books today, but man is character creation in BG1 decrepit by contrast.


Finished Wonder Woman 1984. It was... okay. Just okay. Not Dawn of Justice bad but just kinda eh overall. I'm not mad, but not wowed. Gadot got carried hard by Wiig and Pascal. They were the MVPs.


If there is an ache inside for something Cyberpunk that functions, Humble Bundle has the old 2020 TTRPG books and novels up for grabs.


This is an accurate depiction of the Hades gameplay loop at times.


My first impressions of Disney+ and HBO Max are that I like The Mandolorian and wish Disney+ worked on my TV. HBO Max I will cancel after watching Wonder Woman 1984 and Birds of Prey.


"We don't allow snowmen here but, okay. He can stay. He looks very polite."


The 2B minion is a rare drop in the FFXIV Puppet's Bunker YoRHa raid. First time I'd seen the drop, actually. Won the loot roll :D


At the podiatrist because my front door decided it hated my left big toenail.
