Spring semester was great, but now that’s it over, I get to enjoy my summer break. And now that that’s over, I get to go back to class tomorrow. Fortunately it only lasts a month, which is enough time to have another class before Fall semester begins.

 
 
 

Grading my students' final multimedia projects. Some of them submitted podcasts. Listening to them in my office is like listening to a bunch of shitty audio logs for a really boring game about writing.

 
 
 

Semester over. I wrote 43 pages in the last 2 weeks. One year down; four to kill. Let’s. Play. Some. Fucking. VIDEOGAMES.

 
 
 

One paper down, one to go. For everyone still working on term papers—



 
 
 

FINALLY able to change my PSN name! Feel free to laugh at the shitty old one. For those of you on the fence, feel free to ask questions in the comments re: lost content or anything else. I’ll do my best to answer what I can through the weekend.


 
 
 

@Brett Makedonski - I'm about to cite your article about Ludonarrative Dissonance in an academic paper. It's not gonna make either of us famous or anything, but I wanted you to know. <3

 
 
 

I'm sorry, Devil May Cry 5. You're good to a lot of people and I'm very happy you're back and doing well, but you're just not Bayonetta and I really hate your combat. I thought you changed in the last decade. Instead, you've just stayed exactly the same.

 
 
 

Hey, Elder Scrolls: Blades just came out in early access.

 
 
 

And for my next trick, I'm going to find an excuse to reference Devil May Cry in the title of my upcoming term paper on Marlowe's Doctor Faustus.

 
 
 

Are there any fixes for this Qtoid comment issue yet? I’m using chrome and can’t see shit, no matter which comment button I press (comments or direct link). I had to reply to people using safari on my phone. HELP ME, MARINAAAAAAAA!


 
 
 

Not videogame related: I moved to this city for school last August, and I just now found a new dojo to call home. I'm so excited for the semester to end so I can officially start.

 
 
 

It took me the better part of my small amount of free time for the last week, but I finished this look at MGS4. It's still my favorite game in the series and a personal Top 5 listee, but this guy's video is just great. Major kudos. <3



 
 
 
 

Anybody else having trouble viewing qtoid comments in Chrome? Clicking the comment button does nothing. I have to click the chain link button to see them in a new page. This is affecting mobile iOS and Windows 10.

 
 
 

DMC5 demo absolutely convinced me that Bayonetta 3 will be fucking incredible.

 
 
 

I haven't yet thought of a name for him/her.


 
 
 

So I’m locked in for the weekend working on another paper (so what’s new), but this finally arrived and I didn’t have anywhere else to share and I really wanted to. I can’t remember the last time I was so excited about a belt.


 
 
 

Sign me up for YoRHa and pair me up with 2B because I'm a motherfucking SCANNER UNIT. Also, please fucking make this essay go away. Sir Thomas Wyatt and his Petrarchan poetry can fuck right off.


 
 
 

I haven’t kept up with the competitive puzzle genre for the last decade and a half, but Tetris 99 is the closest thing I’ve played to my belovèd Meteos in years.


 
 
 

"What a long day! I'd love to go home and play some videogames. Let me ask my Unfinished Paper on 16-Century English Poetry."


 
 
 

Reinstalled FE Heroes after 2 years away and the game knew exactly how to reinforce my decision.


 
 
 
 

Thanks to @Frostyflakes, I now know what happens in Smash Bros when you shoot away a spirit’s entire shield without hitting the spirit: the shield disappears and your friend gets disappointed.

 
 
 

It’s my birthday, y’all. I began my day by donating some money to AGDQ and on Monday I go into semester 2 (of 10) for my PhD. Can we get some MEGA MAN up in here? Love you all.


 
 
 

AGDQ 2019 starts in an hour! First up is a Hollow Knight 100% run. Later this week will be Mario RPG and a 10-hour FFIX 3-person run. VIDEOGAMES! https://gamesdonequick.com/schedule
