Happy father's day, fellow gaming dads. Also extending a welcome to the newest dad, SrChurros.

 
 
 

Got to squeeze in a second movie today: Train to Busan. Awesome zombie movie, and I would highly recommend to anyone into the genre.

 
 
 

Dragon Quest Builders is done. There's one game from the backlog completed! Very delightful and fun game. I liked that it gives focus to Minecraft style gameplay.

 
 
 

The kids are at grandma's, and wife is away until tonight, so decided to treat myself to a movie. Saw Solo. It was a really enjoyable movie! I liked the characters a lot, and I didn't have any issue with the guy playing Han. Hope they make another.

 
 
 

Square Enix just had to break my heart when I discovered that the Octopath Traveler demo has a 3 hour time limit.

 
 
 

To the Fortnight players: How long do games last, on average?

 
 
 

I've enjoyed E3 so far, but I'm so bummed that I'm probably not going to be able to watch Nintendo's show live with everybody.

 
 
 

Ugh. Just realized I'm stuck working on the intake team for a massive rollout of a new system at work 2 out of the 3 days of E3, so I won't really be able to watch anything as it's happening.

 
 
 
 

A high school girl without a date in PA took a cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito to the prom. In response, he took a cardboard cutout of her to Always Sunny. This man is a gem.


 
 
 

Ugh. On a terrible losing streak. Not even that I'm paired with horrible players each time, but getting outplayed on a regular basis. This is getting old fast.


 
 
 

I am totally loving Battletech so far. Thank you Chris for reviewing it, because I would probably have completely missed it otherwise.

 
 
 

I supported your place today Kevin (there's no WaWa anywhere near Hershey).


 
 
 

Ben may be destined for the Dark Side, but he can still make a new friend with the Sun Bros.


 
 
 

Enjoying some burgers and beers out on the deck with absolutwife after a long day and some workouts. Liking forward to some Dark Souls later.

 
 
 

And now, a moment of levity with everyone's favorite hero, Ben Swolo. (lokhe, you inspired me.) Ben has been imprisoned all of several minutes, and he's had enough. After a brief respite at the first bonfire, it's time to go.


 
 
 

Finished up Dragon Quest VII last week. My save file was around 160 hours (some of that is from dozing off while playing in bed at the end of the night, so realistically more like 135-140 of game). Thoughts in the comments.

 
 
 

Are we still going to be doing the Pinball FX3 tournament?

 
 
 

My wife posted this on Snapchat last night. We received a paper from the school stating that our son is in the 91st percentile for weight and is overweight (you can tell because his ribs are showing!). BMI is a garbage measurement.


 
 
 

Happy birthday Ein and Rad Party God!

 
 
 

Just ordered Dragon Quest IV and V with part of my Amazon gift card money. Loved IV when I played through it originally. Looking back, I was 11 when it came out. Damn, I'm getting older! Looking forward to playing it again and V for the first time.

 
 
 

Now that I'm several days out from having finished the new God of War, including my thoughts in the comment section here. Spoilers, beware!

 
 
 

My entire drive home goes through this red area. Dime sized hail coming down a little while ago. Wish me luck!


 
 
 

Figured it was high time to start playing Dragon Quest Builders since I bought it back at release. It's delightful so far! I do wish I had waited for the Switch version though. Would be perfect on there.

 
 
 

Since my ridiculously stretched out playthrough of Dragon Quest VII is finally nearing the end, I'm feeling in a DQ mood. Started looking up the entries on DS that I missed. $120 for VI on Amazon....what the fuck?!

 
 


About absolutfreakone of us since 1:25 AM on 08.06.2013

I'm a married father of four, and I've been gaming since I was big enough to hold an Atari 2600 controller. I tend to favor single player games, but I'm not against some multiplayer. When online, I prefer cooperative experiences, or team based competitive games with objectives.

My top genre is RPGs, and I fell in love with them after playing old ones like the original Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, Wasteland, and the Gold Box D&D games.

Here are just a few of my favorite games:
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy IV
The rest of the Final Fantasy series
The "Souls" Series
Halo
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
Spelunky
Undertale
Skies of Arcadia
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Mario Kart 8
Super Mario World
A Link to the Past
Dwarf Fortress
Civilization 5
Metal Gear Solid 3
The Wonderful 101
Left 4 Dead 2
