Well. Ran into a database error on my PS4, and had to reformat the drive/reinstall the OS. One issue: I only pay for PS+ when I'm actively going to use it. So I had no cloud backups for my saves. That... that fucking sucks. Kinda pissed.


Replaying Super Mario Odyssey. It's one of those titles that reinforces my love of gaming. It controls so smoothly, has so many things to discover, and its sense of personality often makes me smile. I feel like we'll be talking about it decades from now.


It may not be #ArbitraryMetalTuesday, but fuck it. Have some Ningen Isu. Because this band is all kinds of delightful. Just some good old school heavy/doom metal. That, and just look at them go! Metal is kind of fabulous sometimes.


Well, I beat Cadence of Hyrule. That was a damn fine game. More than anything, it feels like a solid traditional 2D Zelda game with a kickass soundtrack that just happens to have NecroDancer's control scheme, and I'm very much okay with that.


I picked up a thing while I was out today <3~ Pretty stoked to check it out. Though it's kind of sad to think that this may just be the final new game I'll ever pick up for the 3DS. It's been a good run.


I can only hope that Bethesda brings back Magnus for this year's E3. I mean, look at him! He is a creature of pure metal and probably also lightning. He can conjure circle pits with just a glance. Truly, he is a god.


Just saw the new Godzilla movie. It was exactly the film that I hoped it’d be. So much glorious monster carnage. Just so much. It’s big, and it’s dumb, and that’s okay. It’s just a damn fine kaiju movie.


#PetToid, huh? Well, here's one of my cats. I'll post more cute animals in the comments <3~


Oh my gods. Saw Eluveitie tonight. They were so, so good.


Well. It's Tuesday, and I feel like arbitrarily posting some Celtic folk metal. I guess you could call it #ArbitraryMetalTuesday <3~ Seeing this band on Friday, and I'm pretty fucking excited. Wanted to see them for a little over a decade now.


Saw Detective Pikachu last night. I’ll agree that the plot is predictable, and it falls apart at the end. Where it succeeds is with its fantastic world building and loveable cast. Despite its faults, it’s an absolute delight to watch. Would recommend.


Well, I enabled custom firmware on my Vita. The first thing I did with it? Changed my boot message to "Hello, Smithers. You're quite good at turning me on."


Got myself a ticket to Devin Townsend's acoustic tour later this year! This makes me happy. So, so happy.


Metaphorically dusted off this rather goddamn pretty console so I could replay Fire Emblem: Awakening. Been in the mood to replay a Fire Emblem since a new one is out soonish. It was just a little difficult to decide which one to replay, haha!


I got bored and added quickly added Sonic's teeth to Jar Jar Binks. You're welcome.


My hair's a little messy and damp because I just had a shower, buuuuut yay, my new Devin Townsend shirt arrived <3! #SelfieToid.


Just got out of Endgame. Holy fuck. Just holy fuck. I... wow. That was a damn good movie.


Spent some of my eShop rewards coins so that I could finally perfect my most brilliant of Smash Bros. Mii fighters. Behold!


I try not to get caught up in hype. It doesn't always work. This is one of those times. Because holy fuck Rivers in the Desert! In Smash Bros! <3!


@Wes Tacos once offered to steal Occams' guro collection for me. This was years ago, and he now just evades the topic whenever I bring it up. I never received any of the ill-gotten artwork and literature.


@Wes Tacos never pays for beer. Like, ever. He just expects me to foot the bill each and every time. Even when I politely ask him to pay my share. What a scam!
