Spoiler alert: Odyssey is fucking delightful.


My kids are all excited for the release of Mario Odyssey on Friday. I didn't have the heart to tell them that I'm going to be hogging it all evening.


So Keyser Soze was Mario all along?!


Wooooohoooo! I had an extra Walmart gift card lying around, and I was able to order Super Mario Odyssey. It should be arriving Friday!


My peasant and his new best friend.


I want Sucker Punch to hook me up with a new network admin job.


Yesterday I was lamenting getting Vertebra Shackles by grinding. Last night I was pleased to find that invading as a mad spirit in the opening area of The Ringed City is a gold mine. Most times the archers did the work for me. 8 Shackles in 40 minutes.


Started farming vertebrae shackles in Dark Souls III to get the last of my pyromancy spells. Spent half an hour farming in the catacombs, and walked away with zero shackles. Using the covetous gold serpent ring with 40 luck. This is really going to suck.


Loving the second half of the Dark Souls III DLC so far. My peasant champion isn't loving these angels that look like they belong in a Tool video.


On this day, a peasant slew a king.


I was having a bitch of a time against Sister Freide in Dark Souls III last night in the first DLC area. It was very satisfying to finally beat her though. That fight was epic! Looking forward to the last DLC.


Damn, Marvel's Inhumans is off to a frustrating start. So the show creators thought the best way to show off the inhumans is to strip almost all the main characters of their inhuman powers? A few more thoughts in the comments.


Shovel Knight unlocked in Road Redemption!


The SNES Classic hack was a success! The boys are enjoying it while I prepare lunch.


Also happy birthday Mike Martin!


My daughter asked to go on a haunted hayride, so we took her to Field of Screams tonight. Of course had some idiot teenager showing off in our wagon. Hey douche, nobody is impressed by how not scared you are. Overall we had a good time though.


I am having a blast with Road Redemption. Joel, thanks a ton for the review. I honestly didn't know the game existed before today.


Such a bummer to hear about Tom Petty. I've got great memories of driving around with friends after school, smoking up and listening to him. This is my favorite song of his.


The most terrifying skeletons in gaming have to be these guys that are a part of every new Dark Souls player's rite of passage. You're going to make that turn into the bad part of Firelink, and get your ass kicked.


My son started playing A Link to the Past today. He's only six, so I have to help him out a bit with the reading, but he was enjoying it despite a little frustration with getting killed in the beginning. So happy to pass this on to him.


Playing Super Ghouls & Ghosts again has indirectly proven that God is real. Satan apparently worked at Capcom in the late 80's/early 90's and put the Torch in the game as a weapon. If Satan is real, therefore God must be as well.


Hmmm....almost October. I need to start considering which of my scarier games to play for Halloween. Think I'm going to go with Soma.


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
