Holy shit you guys. I got into my top-choice PhD program. Oh my fucking god I am still freaking out.

 
 
 

Hey dtoid, can we get some art of videogame characters playing videogames? I'll post some more in my comments.


 
 
 

I’ve had the best weekend ever. But I just want to say to all the people struggling to keep it together and deal with life that I feel you, I care about you, and I want you to do well. Don’t give up. I swear you can fucking do this. <3

 
 
 

I've been thinking about it for the last week and I have to say my absolute favorite 3DS game was Kid Icarus: Uprising. KI:U really made the system for me, more so than even Smash. May it live forever, and may we get a sequel without waiting 2 decades.


 
 
 

I understand why, but I can't help but feel a little disappointed that my only gripe with Bayonetta 2 is that there's no 2B costume.

 
 
 

#striptoid, huh? Let's dig out an old favorite (source— http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/comic/tears-in-rain):


 
 
 

Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of JSRF and I forgot to play this fucking gem:



 
 
 

Florida's a small place. One of my students sat in my office crying because she couldn't reach her friend back home in Coral Springs. I was born there. I can't imagine looking at my students and thinking that 17 of them won't get to go home anymore.


 
 
 

I think I'd like to try a bit of Twitch streaming from my PS4. Would people be interested in commentated casual gameplay of something like Witcher 3 or Dishonored 2 or something? And what weekend times work best for people? Fri/Sat/Sunday night? <3

 
 
 

I conquered Celeste Mountain. 125/175 Strawberries, 1167 deaths. No crystal hearts, but I located 3/4 of them and I think I know where the last one is. Overall, game was a good Meat Boy-style platformer, but it had some issues. Won't play it again. <3

 
 
 

100 posts! Hell of a ride! Etc., etc.! So am I supposed to do an AMA? Fuck it. Ask me anything. *Edit* I do not apologize for my novel-length answers.

 
 
 

#Shoutouttoid to @TriCerAroK for always being a thoughtful commenter, good conversationalist, and for having one of the coolest avatar pics on the site.

 
 
 

Early this morning, NASA provided us with a live feed of the cutscene where all the enemies respawn.

 
 
 

Finally watched the Warcraft movie. I haven't played Warcraft since WC2, but I dig Diablo and Overwatch and Blizzard in general. I really enjoyed it, didn't find it at all confusing except the names, and would watch a sequel. Good fights, too. Fuck.

 
 
 

Dissidia day 1 patch lets you map jump to the X button! Fuck yeah! Also I just noticed I can upvote people 5 times now instead of just 4! Anyone know what governs that?


 
 
 

GoNNER is yet another wonderful beloved indie platformer brought to the Switch that forces me to use its stupid-as-all-fuck control scheme instead of allowing me to map my own. Have the devs never held a fucking controller before?

 
 
 

Today's the 11th, and it's my 30th birthday. Can we celebrate with some Mega Man, some metal, and some fucking ninjas? Have the best day ever, you incredible bastards. <3


 
 
 

Okay, game idea: the Toads from the Mario series team up with the Servbots from Mega Man Legends to build a rocket ship to the moon and rescue Mega Man and, for some reason, Mario. I still hate the Rabbids.

 
 
 

It's January! I've got a birthday in a week and a half, another grad school application due after that, delicious Chinese food in my stomach, Okami in my PS4, and I had a date today! Fuck yeah, 2018!

 
 
 

My top 5 games: Hatsune Miku: Automata, Life is Strange: Zero Dawn, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Uncharted: Death of the Outsider, and The Legend of Zelda: The New Colossus.

 
 
 

Tonight’s sandwich: hard salami, smoked provolone, and roasted red pepper on seedless rye. Tune in next week when I teach you how to avoid students by shopping at the Publix across town.

 
 
 

Saw the Pompeii exhibit in the Arizona Science Center and apparently Mick Gordon did the music for it. The same Mick Gordon who scored Doom with chainsaws. National fucking treasure.

 
 
 

The End Is Nigh on Switch is fantastic, but why the hell is Edmund McMillen forcing me to jump with the fucking A button?

 
 
 

Put in final grades for 3 classes. Failed 6 students, busted one of them for blatant plagiarism. I don't drink, but I've never wondered why my colleagues keep whiskey in the back of their filing cabinets. Those of you finishing a semester: stay strong.

 
 
 

Mega Man X Collection with X-X8 coming to all current gen platforms and PC. One of the few things I wanted from the 30th anniversary. Now give us Legends. *Edit* MEGA MAN 11 HOLY SHIT THERE ARE ACTUAL TEARS

 
 


About Shibbolethone of us since 1:04 AM on 03.14.2013

Sup? We're all here because we dig games, and I wanted a place to talk about games and game-related nonsense.

This screen name, "Shibboleth," refers to something codified, like a ritual or signal, that lets us know we are a part of this community. Wearing an Xbox shirt in public (gasp!), carrying around your 3DS in StreetPass mode, or having your ringtone set to the Codec sound are all clues that we send to one-another. We're here, we all do this particular thing, and we should all hang out and be groovy.

Also, cocks.
