There was quite the crazy afternoon at the school my kids go to yesterday. Details in the comments.


Would it be possible to have a toggle where I could have Flixist articles appear mixed in with my Destructoid ones?


I just announced to the department that I'm working from home today, 10 minutes ago.


Jumped back in on hard core as Leon. Getting my ass kicked, but in a good way. I'm becoming much more efficient in how I'm handling encounters and planning how I get from point A to point B.


I am so happy that the Resident Evil 2 remake exists. I was chomping at the bit all day to get home and play it, and have not been disappointed. The three hours or so I played just flew by.


Happy birthday to everyone's favorite lover of tacos....Betty White! Just kidding. Happy birtday Wes!


Happy Birthday Soulbow, glad to have you around here.


In the vein of my Tales From the RimWorld series, I have a new CBlog up of my first major run in Caves of Qud up (where I don't die from an amoeba 5 minutes in).


Caves of Qud Adventure!

Caves of Qud is a roguelike RPG with both fantasy and futuristic elements to it. I picked it up during this latest Holiday Steam sale, and have jumped in. I'm hoping to post some of my adventures here in the CBlogs as well as some of m...


After dipping my toe into the water with Caves of Qud, I think I'm going to do a CBlog of my next character's (most likely short) life, similar to my RimWorld stories. Now debating if I should just go with some random guy or carefully decide on my build.


Gave Caves of Qud a test drive before bed. I didn't survive a single day. Very strange character creator, but I think I'm really going to enjoy playing this game.


Finished off Chapter 4 in Celeste, and I can definitely see why this game is so loved. It's fantastic so far!


Thanks to some Steam gift cards from my wife and mother, I was able to grab 8 new games on Steam. How did I do?


Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you all have a great day and maybe get some cool stuff.


At some point am I going to become a mature adult? Got an email at work, and the only message in it was "FYI, Dick" along with a spreadsheet. The guy's name is actually Dick, but that didn't stop me from cracking up at my desk.


After picking it up at launch, finally stopped being an idiot and started Dragon Quest XI last night. I was exhausted and only made it out of the first town, but very happy so far. This game is gorgeous and delightful.


Sometimes Pennsylvanians don't want Florida Man to have all the fun.


Hope you're all enjoying Smash Bros. I've received inside information that Santa will be bringing it for my kids, so I'll join this party in a few weeks.


First night out with the guild, and we were incredibly pleased with the results. Took down the first four bosses of Uldir, even with some first timers in the raid. Found some good PuG players to fill in the cracks.


My seven year old son has just decided to start playing Dark Souls on the Switch. I am so proud. And he is going to get his ass kicked so badly. Update: He managed to take out the Asylum Demon. He requested Burger King for dinner. He earned it!


Popping in for a quick Happy Birthday to Mr. Moyse. Have a great day!


Halloween...a magical holiday where Soldier 76 wants to hook up with Wednesday Addams.


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
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
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
