Mark of the Ninja: Remastered released today. I recently wrote some stuff about it; the game means a lot to me. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have!

 
 
 

Six Years a Ninja: Memoirs of a Grad Student

(It's been over 3 years since my last CBlog, and the formatting has changed.  Bear with me if you notice mistakes and inconsistencies.  This is going to be a rather long personal story, though I promise there's a videogame-re...

 
 
 
 

Yesterday's episode of What's Good Games cites Jordan's article about the Harry Potter leak. It's cool knowing who's reading dtoid. Also, I have a (LONG) CBlog going up shortly about Mark of the Ninja and life in general.



 
 
 

I didn't get to play it since my copy is a couple hundred miles away, but I wanted to say I'm really happy that Mega Man 11 launched today. Also, I'm working on a cblog I'll publish later this week. It's... 4200 words. About school, ninjas, and life. <3

 
 
 
 

I drew Hollow Knight on the back of a pumpkin for our office Halloween decorations. I used a pen for the outline and shading, and marker for his eyes and legs. I’ll shade the nail with a pencil. Also I should absolutely get back to reading Agamben. <3


 
 
 

So thrilled about the possibility of finally getting cross-platform play on the PS4. Now when the fuck can we expect to change our goddamn PSN names?

 
 
 
 
 

So Dante's abysmal theme from DMC5 was pulled from YouTube. Hopefully it's being replaced. However, we shouldn't let this die:


 
 
 

Cy Games, who handled ZOE: MVRS, are in talks with Konami to do a 3rd game pending sales. I’ll set my cynicism aside and support this cause.

 
 
 

I'm not done with the game yet, but after 5 hours I really need to ask: is anyone else totally not liking The Messenger?

 
 
 

Donut County was a wonderful palette cleanser from the fun-but-depressing Iconoclasts. Starting The Messenger. Let’s see if this becomes my new Hollow Knight. (Also I have to read 300 pages of philosophy and literature by next Thursday. Wish me luck. <3

 
 
 

PSA: Donut County is simple and relaxed, also charming as hell. And now I really want a donut.

 
 
 

Watching the Fast & Furious series with my brother. Just finished Furious 7. They're so goddamn stupid, but I can't remember enjoying a series of movies this much. I'm legitimately sad that Johnson and Diesel had a falling out after 8. RIP Paul. <3

 
 
 

“Alexa, tell me a Pokémon joke.” “Why is it impossible to play hide-and-seek with a Pokémon? They always *pikachu*.” “Alexa, that was shitty.”

 
 
 
 

Salt & Sanctuary is *also* coming to Switch the same day as Iconoclasts. This sounds excellent, unless they don't fix that BULLSHIT CO-OP GLITCH in which case I'd sooner double-dip on Iconoclasts. This is your chance, Ska Studios. (Single player is fine.)



 
 
 

I've spent my afternoon with the X Collections, and I'm really happy with them. But is anyone else finding that the Switch Joycons are dropping inputs? It's really tough to charge, dash, and jump without it feeling like I'm losing a button press. <3

 
 
 

I picked up Iconoclasts finally and it's good. Like Gunstar Heroes good.

 
 
 

Friendly reminder that our own @Alphadeus fucking rocks. An artist that can manage so many styles and influences is worth celebrating.



 
 
 

So Galak-Z Variant S launched on Nintendo Switch, and it's now a mobile game with microtransactions. As in you need to buy Crash Coins with real money to repair your ship, or wait 9 hours in real time. Oh, and you can't transform. What the fuck, 17-Bit?

 
 
 

I'm gonna stream more Witcher 3 tonight (8 EST) and play for a few hours. I want to continue reacquainting myself before starting a fresh DM playthrough w/o NG+ (I'll start that later this week). Come hang out. https://www.twitch.tv/shibboletho

 
 
 

Streaming Witcher 3 if anyone cares to chill with me for a spell and watch me slay Drowners. https://www.twitch.tv/shibboletho

 
 
 

Alright, fuck it. I'll do a 4th playthrough of Witcher 3. Would anyone care to tune into a chillstream later this evening?
