I hit a snag with my DS2 Genocide run: the zombies and rats in Grave of Saints keep respawning! Maybe killing Royal Rat Mohawk will stop that, but I don't want to kill bosses quite yet.


Not only am I going to have to wait until the 5th at the earliest for a new debit card, but of course Steam decides to put a chunk of my list on sale!! Lame. I should be fine by the time the Halloween sale starts. Oh hey, Wes says I won MO:Astray! Thanks!


What the Hell is a "Band Camp" and why are Californian's trying to use my money for it? I wanted a burger today but I guess I'm going to be money-free until I get a new bank card


Remember that time I was all like, "Woah, Guacamelee is incredible, I shouldn't have slept on it!" I'm going through that all over again with Metro Last Light. Loved 2033, and this one is absolutely measuring up so far. That plane segment before Theater..


Maybe now Starfield will finally either be pushed or be shelved. Probably shelved since Micro KNOWS Elder Scrolls is a massive sales generator, and Bethesda has said no ES6 until after Starfield.


Not gonna lie, Midnight Castle Succubus DX looks legit despite being...ya know...what it is.


In the original Super Mario Sunshine you can unlock a pair of Sunglasses to tone down the bloom so...is that unlocked sooner in the All-Stars version or is it still something you need to find? I usually turn bloom off before starting a game.


This is probably old news, but Guacamelee is really, really good. I probably shouldn't have slept on it for so long.


Just interviewed for a Team Lead position at Target. I'm currently in a 1 or 2 week, "prove you can be a leader" period before I'm given a second interview. More money would be fantastic yo, NGL.


I want to play as a Slytherin who takes a hardcore Muggle-studies playthrough. I really hope this Hogwarts thing is open and short enough for multiple playthroughs.


I swear to God, if Final Fantasy XVI is episodic I'll riot. Well...I'll grumble at the very least. Also, it was funny as Hell to see that asterisk: Only on Playstation* (also available on PC)


Are we still doing anime openings? Has nobody posted the best one from the 90's? Let me fix that...#OPtoid


A Decade in Review; Shoggy-18

2018 happened, and I think this is my most anemic list so far. I’ve tried to keep up with modern games, but it’s easy to lose track of everything as it comes out. That being said though, I think I managed to put together a ...


Since it's possible to kill enemies enough times in DS2 to cause permanent de-spawn, I think I'll go for a true Genocide Run. This probably won't be too tedious


BOB - A Delayed Game is eventually Shogged

Shigeru Miyamoto once said, “A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever”. You may have noticed a delay in this month’s Band of Bloggers prompt, and that was totally to drive this point home. We&rsquo...


The next Final Fantasy that should be remade is 13 and it should be done in the style of Octopath Traveller.


Just finished Call of Cthulhu (2018) and even though I have nostalgic ties to Dark Corners of the Earth, I think I like the new one more. Gonna go through it again to get that damn, fourth ending and hopefully clean up the rest of the chivos.


I didn't like Super Mario 64 or Sunshine. I thought SM64DS was an improvement, but okay, let's wallow in the past instead of improving it. Making the collection a limited time thing baffles me too, but I guess that'll guarantee sales.


It's annoying to me that I've only ever seen Ultimate Alliance 3 on sale during 1 Black Friday since it launched but Mario & Rabbids, another Switch exclusive made by a third party, is almost always $20 or so. I don't get it, but I blame Disney.


So, I moved a bunch until I was about 9. Then I moved a bunch more until recently, so I don't think I have any of my original childhood toys. This isn't my original FFMystic Quest, but it's a game that I played as a young child #childhoodgametoid


Shog's August 2020 Gaming Journal

This month has been...meh. I’m getting tired of blaming seasonal depression for my feelings of ennui, especially during Summer, so I’m going to start blaming people who eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Anyway, I chos...


I hate fighting the mules, I hate fighting the BTs, and I hate Low Roar. Has any of that been modded out of the PC version of Death Stranding?


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!
