My Dad died 5 years ago today. I wasn't told about it until the following day. I think this is the last time I'm going to go out of my way to think about it. I'm considering changing my last name, but I should 23-and-me myself first.


Saints Row 2 is a lot jankier than I remember it being. Switched to Road Redemption and that game is a TREASURE. It's exactly what I hoped Road Rash could have been if it continued. Mechanicus is kicking my ass, but it's still a good time.


I'm getting into Warhammer 40K (the games at least, I'm not made of money JFC) so I'm listening to Lore videos on youtube and I think the most whimsical thing about the universe is how Orks are psychic enough to make their thoughts real if they believe.


Shog's May 2020 Gaming Journal

May was a strange month, wasn’t it? Between the sudden cold snap followed abruptly by intense heat, the back to back protests with wildly different outcomes, the out-of-nowhere reveals of a new Paper Mario that actually looks dec...


I should be fine, sure I'm in the DC area but who's going to protest in Germantown? Oh...I AM fine and I'm not noticing any signs of armed occupation in my neighborhood. My energy levels are low, but that's mostly because of the time of year. Be well <3


Space Hulk Deathwing looks really, really, really, good, but the reviews seem to agree that single-player game people like me won't get much out of it. It almost makes it sound like Vermantide, but with xenomorphs instead of rats. I'm interested, but help


#depressingbutbeautiful because this song hits me hard, I associate it with one of my people who might be considered an ex, but it's a song that I'm probably going to assign to my future exes because I'm dumb like that.


Since it was free on Steam I played through the first chapter of Life is Strange. My joke about Last of Us 2 being Life is Strange 3 is funnier to me now, and I kinda want to watch Juno again, but I don't see myself playing any other LiS chapters.


Apparently I've had a Steam account for 10 years as of this month. Until about a year ago though, I could only play low-intensity games like Papers, Please and Final Fantasy VII. Time flies.


#arbitratrymetaltuesday I kinda can't believe how old this is to be honest. It's one of my favorite anime, but I haven't seen the live action version yet.


My wacom tablet is dead. Looks like a cat or two ate the USB off of it. I needed a new one anyway, I bought it from Circuit City.


BoB - Shog played Jazz Jackrabbit 3

If you know me well enough, or if you’ve known me for long enough, you’ve likely heard me say something along the lines of, "Extreme Pinball is by far the best game Epic has ever released.” Then I played the alpha dem...


Mid-Month reminder that this months Band of Blogger's theme is all about Cancelled games! Even if you want to talk about a cancelled port, or a game that was cancelled and turned into something else, we would love to hear about it! #BOB (semi-related vid)


A Decade in Review; Shoggy-14 (Part 2)

Welcome back to A Decade in Review; Shoggy-14! This is the second half of my look at 2014, and it's all positive. If you're interested in reading up on the games I didn't like, and felt ambivelent about, check out my previous entry. It...


I just picked up the Sierra bundle from Humble and there were a couple of things in it that just aren't my bag. I'll leave some Steam codes for whoever would like to redeem them, please speak up if you take any, and maybe share a pun or furry art or smt..


A Decade in Review; Shoggy-14 (Part 1)

2014 happened, and while it’s true that the Playstation 4 and Xbone have been out for a while it really doesn’t feel like the new console generation has kicked off yet. There were some pretty high-profile games launched on ...


I'm pretty sure I need a new chair...#chairtoid !! Lemme see where ya'll park your ass!!


Random question: Is it ultimately better for my PC to leave it on and let it sleep when I'm not using it, or should I be shutting it down if I'm not planning on using it for hours at a time (like before bed, before work, etc).


#unpopularopiniontoid: I said previously that I personally didn't like A Hat in Time or Banjo-Kazootooie. I loved Yooka-Laylee. My Final Fantasy order: 4, 9, 15, 6, 8, 7, 10, 2, 5, 3, 1, 13-2, 12, 14, 13. Never played 11 or 13-3, Curtain Call is best.


#unpopularopiniontoid: I personally don't like these games - Bayonetta, The Wonderful 101, God of War PS4, Final Fantasy 12, 13, or 14, Borderlands (the series), Horizon Zero Dawn, 3D Mario platformers (except Odyssey and 3D Land/World)...


Happy Seaquest Day. No matter what they say to the contrary, canon is subjective and all timelines are split.


Fun Fact: Not only are the servers for Mario Kart 8 still up, but the community is still active. I just ran through a few races and even got 3rd in one of them!


Shog's April 2020 Gaming Journal

As 2020 continues on so too does the global game of plague inc. we’re all being forced to play. Since we’re well and truly into Spring sales are starting to roll out online so my backlog has grown, and will continue to grow...


I spent yesterday beating Wolfenstein: The New Order and downloading animated PNGs icons for my Steam library. Do things change significantly between playthroughs because I'm probably going to just move on if not.


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!
