So I just started watching HUMANS on Amazon, and so far I'm pleasantly surprised with how good it is. Been itching for some solid sci-fi for a while. What are you all watching these days? What do you think of it?

 
 
 
 

TNG is an amazing show, but DS9 will always be best Star Trek.


 
 
 

Endgame has put me on a big Marvel kick, and I'm going through all the MCU movies again. I'm about halfway through. So far, GotG 1 is still my favorite, and still really gets to me personally, even 5 years later. Winter Solider is probably a close second.

 
 
 

Holy shit. Just finished Cuphead for the first time, on Switch (with my only A+ ranking being on the Devil, funny enough.) What an intense and gorgeous game. Very likely one of my top five this year. I need to lie down for a minute.

 
 
 

The Aussie lady in this Sony State of Play is at least 20% more excited than the last host.

 
 
 

Happy Birthday Torchman, the guy I see everywhere, doing all the things and making Dtoid great. Even if I don't think we've ever actually talked.

 
 
 

Quick update: I told my company I wasn't relocating, and they told me I'm out on the 15th. But I also nailed a final interview on Tuesday, which I'm hoping will result in an offer today or tomorrow. This could go really good... Or really bad.

 
 
 

So I thought Endgame was actually really good. I've been a bit bored with some of the more recent Marvel movies, but the way they've all culminated into Infinity War and Endgame is admittedly pretty incredible - minor plot criticisms aside.

 
 
 

My company has been pressuring me to move to Seattle the past 2 months, while I’ve secretly been trying to get a new job here (Austin). I’ve got 3 interviews this week, and a meeting with my boss to tell him I won’t be moving. This may get rough.

 
 
 

One thing I find super curious while playing Division 2 is how... Optimistic? It is for a post-apocalypse setting. It's cool to see a strong attempt to rebuild, rather than everything becoming Mad Max immediately after the incident - like most others.

 
 
 

Semi-Hot-Take: Sekiro is a really bizarre game mechanically. And as someone who absolutely loves Soulsborne games, I say that more as an observation than a criticism. (Cont. Below)

 
 
 

Playing through FF9 on PS4 with a buddy right now, via Shareplay. Definitely remembering why I used to call this my favorite FF. It's really a fantastic and underrated gem. ....Also, fuck, do I miss old Square.

 
 
 

Had a great time this weekend with a friend pulling off an S-rank Hardcore run of REmake 2, which - as someone not good at these sorts of things - I highly recommend to any player. What a rush! S+ Hardcore can go fuck itself, though.

 
 
 

For all my Yakuza fans out there, Judgment finally has a US release date for the year. June 25th! Should be a good summer sleeper hit. https://twitter.com/Wario64/status/1102943256810143744

 
 
 

Listening to the Person 5 soundtrack to keep myself motivated at work today. Crazy to think that even two years later, there is still a constant desire in the back of my mind to drop everything in my life, just to focus on going back through it again.

 
 
 

The way REmake 2 is somehow able to adapt such modern mechanics and controls into an easily playable format, while somehow still being so incredibly oppressive and tense, is super impressive. It’s a textbook case of what makes a good horror game.

 
 
 

So I picked up YIIK anyway, despite the bad review last week. I'm having a good deal more fun with it than Kevin did, and it's definitely a very unique/special game, but oh boy does it have problems.

 
 
 

So one of my major hobbies outside of gaming is following music, esp. hip-hop. With that, where my fellow heads at? What would you say were your top 5 rap albums of 2018?

 
 
 

For anyone who missed it, the crazy postmodern RPG YIIK finally has a release date: January 17th! I can confirm it's dropping on Steam, but not sure if it launches on PS4 or Switch that same day, or the ports are coming later.

 
 
 

For those still playing AC Odyssey, like me, there's tons of stuff dropping this month. Free story DLC, new Mercenary tiers, even a way to turn off level scaling!



 
 
 

Grabbed Kingdom Come: Deliverance in the Black Friday PSN Sale, and I'm kind of loving the weird mix of awkwardness and charm so far. This game could have had so much more impact if it wasn't released broken.

 
 
 

The new RE2 trailer made me cry with joy when I saw it, and is already my most anticipated game right now. The more I hear, the more excited I am. You guys are entitled to your opinion, but as an old fart who fell in love with it at 11, the hate is silly.

 
 
 

If anybody is lonely this Valentine's Day, I'd be perfectly willing to put some time into co-op gaming tonight to keep someone company! I'm down for whatever PS4 game you want, always down to throw some money down for multiplayer. Tag is MrPopadopalus.
