Scratched the surface of the Steam Next Fest and found some good stuff already! Unmetal has my kind of comedy, Grime is Blasphemous by way of the Steamworld, Severed Steel has kicked the crap out of me! It's so good! (GIF topical but unrelated)


 
 
 

Nintendo really just went that hard like it wasn't a big deal. I haven't been this optimistic about ready to use my Switch since 2017. I can't believe Cruisin is back. I'm more excited for Dread than Prime 4. Just...wow.

 
 
 

Considering how Earth was shut down last year, I'm not too surprised that big companies don't have much to show at this year's E3. Elden Ring looks great, and a few indie things too. I'm curious to see what Nintendo has lined up.

 
 
 

Since things have calmed down with the site as a whole, I'd just like to pop up and say clicking "all news and updates" feels really redundant since it takes me to a page with 1 to 3 extra stories compared to the front page then a "next page" button.

 
 
 

I was going to watch some E3 coverage before I went to bed this noon, but when I saw Siege gameplay I assumed it was a preshow thing. Whoopsie-doodles. Can't wait for the Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, and nothing else!

 
 
 

I'm really excited for the Alex Kidd remake. I'm hoping more games do that kind of remake too, especially after Monster Boy. C'mon Konami, let someone do that with Ganbare Goemon!

 
 
 

The concept of a director's cut of Death Stranding seems silly to me. How much more Kojima can the apex Kojima game possibly get?

 
 
 
 

Signed the lease! Perfect timing too, the AC in my current place decided to die today or last night x.x Now to dismantle my room and begin the packing process...fml my whole damn head

 
 
 

Square's E3 presentation dealy specifically says (in the email I got from them) that Avengers is on the docket. So I look forward to either A - surprise release of Spider-Man and/or Black Panther content, or B - This thing finally dying

 
 
 

I stayed up late to finish reading The Last Command, the third book of the Thrawn trilogy. It was so artfully done.

 
 
 

Shog's May 2021 Gaming Journal

Remember, remember, when May turns into June and once again rumors of a Switch Pro have begun to circulate again. For goodness sake, people have been spreading rumors about a Switch Pro since mid-2017. Anyway, there were some pretty bi...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers June 2021 Prompt!

It's summer time, and you know what that means, it's time to go down to the beach, it's time to do some beachy things. Even if it's too early in the season for you to go though, you're going to want to consider your wardrobe as the wea...

 
 
 
 

Back from work, so now I can look at the site on my PC instead of on my phone! This is pretty bad. Yeah, change isn't necessarily bad, take everything case-by-case, this is a case of the bad. I come here because it's *not* IGN, Polygon etc. Bad Dtoid, No!

 
 
 
 

Move update: We have a place lined up! We'll have a timetable lined up soon, and will likely be moving in July. The place we're going to is essentially in walking distance of where we currently are.

 
 
 

lol, Landlord is selling the place I'm at so I'll probably have to move this month or next month at the latest. I blame summer on this. Video unrelated; *note - Dankmus It's a Handgun was the first video I was going to post but...no*



 
 
 

BOB ... Gosh, this is awkward

I don't usually play around with photo mode in the games that offer them. In fact, I'm struggling to think of games recently that had a photo mode in general. There was the demo for Resident Evil VIII but the issue with that is that th...

 
 
 
 

I noticed that my store has Destruction All-Stars for $20 at base and I don't understand why. It's a new PS5 game, it looks like a lot of fun...what's the deal? What's wrong with it?

 
 
 

I could have played a lot more Nocturne over the last couple days, but Resi 4 finally clicked and I just started a Pro playthrough. Well, pseudo-pro, Ashley is wearing armor...not that it's helped me in the siege house.

 
 
 

Something about the Leon/ Ada/ Krauser dynamic reminds me of the Sonic/ Rouge/ Shadow dynamic...

 
 
 

I've never actually watched Blink before, but I understand the hype now. I was expecting it to be more horror focused given how the Weeping Angels kicked off a whole horror trend (or at least it seemed to have done).

 
 
 

Just finished Dark Force Rising and started Last Command. I see the hype for Thrawn, and liked how the subversion at the end of DFR boosted the stakes. Kind of a shame I have to look up a reading order and get the next series second hand.

 
 
 

Had to leave work early because of a potential gas leak, and a poo pipe going kaboom. The front of the store was basically flooded with poo water. Woo.


 
 
 

I don't drink or do things that would make me high. Tell me filthy, tasteless jokes or anecdotes. Hit me as hard as you can, come on, go all-out, use spoiler tags, there are no rules just suggestions.

 
 


About Shoggoth2588one of us since 6:55 AM on 06.03.2013

Hello all! I'm Joe, from Maryland! I released five days before Enix launched Dragon Quest 3! I started playing games around the time I was 3, with some very early memories of myself playing Duck Hunt in my Dad's office and Golden Axe in an arcade at what might have been an airport (It was a weird memory). I'm mostly harmless so if you wanna talk to me, send me a message. I'll be around, making horrible puns though not quite as horrible as Gus' is able to do. I'll lurk on the Discord too and if you want to be my friend there, than come at me!
