Notre Dame cathedral is on fire right now. Apparently it was being renovated so they're suspecting it's an accident but that is probably my favorite piece of architecture in the world and it's painful to watch this.


 
 
 

Metro Exodus has one of the worst intros I've ever played. I legitimately couldn't tell what I was supposed to do half the time and the amount of jarring first person cutscenes that don't even tell a coherent story was absurd. I really hope it improves.

 
 
 

I love living by the college. There's so many restaurants. I ate an enormous plate of really good sushi for dinner today. The meal was only $26 with tip too, which isn't too bad given how good it was.

 
 
 

Today's project was a success. I took my 32X completely apart, sprayed compressed air everywhere, and cleaned everything inside it including the cartridge slot, ribbon cables and sockets with contact cleaner. Reassembled it and 32X cartridges work again!

 
 
 

I just did the math and found out I consumed 1308MG of caffeine in the last 12 hours. Eh fuck it. My watch says my heart rate is 71bpm which is only about 10 more than my normal resting rate. I'll be fine until I crash.

 
 
 

Finally got all my art hung in the new apartment. This will be three concurrent posts with three pics. Starting in the living room, I hung all the Smash 4 posters. Seeing these makes me really miss Club Nintendo.


 
 
 

Second, here's the wall next to the Zelda wall I posted a week ago. That Kirby piece will be replaced with two more sexy pin-ups when I get around to ordering them from Shark Robot. I really am like a 14 year old boy.


 
 
 

And finally, my housemate calls this the Naughty Nook. Because of course I have all these pics of Zone-tan by my computer. I'm really happy with how my appartment turned out.


 
 
 

Hung my Nintendo pads up behind my gaming chair to act as decorations and help reduce echo from the surround sound system. They're affixed with velcro command strips so I can even take them down and use them if the desire strikes me.


 
 
 

Got a new phone number and some job recruiting agent called while I was losing at Super Punch Out. My response: "EAT SHIT AND DIE!" I may have fucked it up for whoever had this number last.

 
 
 

Got an original model SNES to replace my Jr. SNES. It's a 1CHIP-2 and I've never seen a SNES in better condition. Absolutely no yellowing and even the warning sticker was perfect. This thing is gorgeous!


 
 
 

Decided to play Battletoads on Sega Genesis, made it to the Ice Caves and then remembered why I never play Battletoads. It’s because the screen doesn’t scroll far enough ahead for you to see any obstacles. The soundtrack is amazing on Genesis though.

 
 
 

Finally got my pictures hung up on one of my bedroom walls. Only took 1 1/2 months. See if you can spot the theme.


 
 
 

Tonight’s plans have been finalized. Taco Bell and Ninja Scroll. Violence, tits, and junk food. I love being an adult.

 
 
 

Nothing like waking up and finding a fucking mouse in your kitchen. Guess now I have to get some traps, poison and maybe a cat for a more long term solution.

 
 
 

It seemed like my GBA collection was bigger when it was in the binder...


 
 
 

Just backed the Retro Fighters Next-Gen Dreamcast Controller on Kickstarter and Preordered Dan Kunz's Dreamcast HDMI mod kit with my state tax return. Figured the latter would be a good thing to test my new soldering station on.

 
 
 

My housemate got a snek. She’s a Kenyan Sand Boa. She still needs a name if anyone has a suggestion.


 
 
 

Just got a great deal on Castlevania Legacy of Darkness for N64! Over a week of prowling eBay at odd hours for it has finally paid off!

 
 
 

Help! None of my Sega 32X cartridges will work. Regular Genesis games play fine. Sega CD games that require the 32X play fine. All the contacts both in the console and on the games have been cleaned with 92% isopropyl. Any suggestions?

 
 
 

After years of owning cheap pop culture wallets I just spent $80 on a one that’s actually nice. It had better last me at least 10 years or I’ll be annoyed.

 
 
 

I’ve started Kingdom Hearts The Story So Far and I’ve decided to start KH1 over on easy because the camera and lock on system are borderline broken and it makes the combat borderline unplayable. Seriously, that game has not aged well mechanically.

 
 
 
 

Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far has finally been restocked on the Square online store! I bought a copy because it’s the only time in ages that the series has ever been approachable. Who’d have guessed a sensibly named game would sell so well?

 
 
 

I dreamt last night that Nintendo announced Joy Cons with a proper dpad so I’ll make that my prediction for todays Nintendo Direct. There were other things in the dream too but I can’t remember anything else. Also yes I really did dream about the Dire

Hi everybody! My name's Peter and I live in Ohio. I was introduced to gaming on that fateful Xmas where I got a SNES with Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. All these years later and I love gaming more then ever!
