Awww yeah! My Undertale Collector’s Edition just showed up. Picked it up for Vita, just because of my preference for handheld consoles.

Contest: We've got 15 PAX Australia passes to give away!

So, did you want to check out PAX Australia later this month, but were bummed out when you noticed on PAX's website that the 3-Day passes were completely sold out? Well, fret no more! Thanks to the fine folks at PAX, we've got fifteen of th...

 
 
 

Wound up taking my niece to Build a Bear today so we could get her a birthday present. I... I may or may not have also gotten myself something. I'm a responsible and mature adult, you guys.


 
 
 

Holy fuck, you guys. Blade Runner was amazing.

 
 
 

My SNES mini arrived today. Was playing around with it in the living room, and someone points out that SNES games look somewhat "amateurish" compared to more modern ones. I was playing Yoshi's Island at the time. They were met with a death glare.

Review: Pokemon Silver

As someone who grew up in the late '90's and early 2000's, I was a huge fan of the Pokémon series as a child. I was the type of person who'd make it a habit to wake up as early as possible to watch the latest episode of the anim...

 
 
 
 

It may not be #ArbitraryMetalTuesday yet, but you should have some Caligula's Horse anyway. Why? Caligula's Horse are fantastic. Definitely worth checking out if you're into Prog Rock/Metal.



 
 
 

Hello, you sexy, sexy people! I've got a Steam key for Hustle Cat — a rather enjoyable dating sim about coffee and cats — to give away. Key's in the comments.

 
 
 

I caught a Mew in a copy of Pokemon Blue on a second 3DS, transferred it to Blue on my main 3DS to teach a few TMs to it (Softboiled, Submission, and Swords Dance). Transferred it back to my second 3DS to trade to Silver on my main one. Worth it.


 
 
 
 

Welp. I just found out that one of my favourite bands — Arcturus — is playing in Brisbane tomorrow. I just had to impulse-buy a ticket. Yup. Definitely had to. It might be a poor financial decision, but I guess I'm going to see Arcturus.



 
 
 

Okay, so I’m pretty much in love with Octopath Traveler’s combat system. This is now the game that I’m most excited for next year.

 
 
 

One of the anime streaming services that I use recently added Metalocalpyse to its library. I didn't know that Metalocalypse was an anime, but there you go! I guess I shouldn't complain, as this show is fucking brutal. Even if Adult Swim is ams dildos.

 
 
 

Just got back from seeing It. It was pretty good! Kind of felt like a film ripped straight from the 80's at some points, which I very much appreciated. I still think Tim Curry was a better Pennywise, but overall it was an improvement over the miniseries.

 
 
 

While it may not be #ArbitraryMetalTuesday just yet, I felt the sudden compulsion to share a track from the latest Brendon Small album. Why? Because arbitrary reasons, that's why! It sounds a lot more Dethklok-y than his previous solo album, mind you.



 
 
 

All right! Recycling/rebumping my previous giveaway Qpost just to hand over one final lewd game. This time, it's HuniePop. As per usual, key's in the comments. Enjoy, you sexy perverts!

 
 
 

Oh god, I'm feeling weirdly nostalgic about Nu Metal. Why the hell am I feeling weirdly nostalgic about Nu Metal?



 
 
 
 

Attempting a randomised Nuzlocke run of Pokemon Fire Red. I managed to catch a Blaziken in the starting route, but for some reason, it wound up crashing my game. Luckily, I found and caught a Blissey after restarting my Game Boy. Also, Ninetales is great.


 
 
 

Holy crap, the latest Septicflesh album is great.



 
 
 

Well, it's Father's Day in Australia now. As such, it's only appropriate that I post something to commemorate such an occasion.


 
 
 

Finally got around to making a U.S. iTunes account so I can play Fate/Grand Order. Figured I'd just use my iPad for it, since I don't want to re-download the 70GB of music on my iPhone — iCloud Music Library deletes downloaded tracks if you sign out.

 
 
 

Been spending a fair bit of time playing Metroid Zero Mission. The GBA Metroid games have aged absolutely beautifully, and it's still a shitload of fun to this day. I'm desperately hoping that Samus Returns manages to retain this level of sheer quality.

 
 
 

You know, I feel as if the Destructoid Community is neglecting the single greatest Pokémon of all time. Which one is it? The incredibly phallic-looking Gen 1 sprite for Golbat. No other Golbat will suffice, of course. Just this one.
