Game idea: You’re an innocent new Destructoid user that wakes up on Oh Shit Island. Vadicta is there, taunting you with threats of the card game Cribbage, pretending to be a Grandpa. You’re certain he’s not a Grandpa. In fact...

 
 
 

Times have been tough & $ has been super tight, but I came home today to an unexpected check from my college for over $1,100 that I received via a grant that I didn’t even apply for. Couldn’t have come at a better time. Feeling pretty dang blessed.

 
 
 

Happy birthday to, resident Top Nep, Gundy! You may be eternally stained with the blood of countless generations of Nep Neps, but we still love you, and we’re better off (outside of your terrible opinions on NieR:Automata...) for having ya around!


 
 
 

I started playing Horizon Zero Dawn for the first time, and after the opening scenes where Aloy is a child (and rocks a pretty mean mullet), I can’t help but think of this as the story of Feral Kid from The Road Warrior.


 
 
 

This is a picture of my dog, Rufio, getting dirt and hair all over my bed after going to the park. A fair trade for that smile.


 
 
 

RTJ4 is stupid good. It took them four albums to get serious, but they’ve always had it in them, and it’s wonderful to see them finally fully dig into shit.



 
 
 
 

Only two episodes into Bojack Horseman, but I can confirm that Limo has officially had at least one good opinion. It’s genuinely great, and I definitely needed the laughs.


 
 
 
 

Guess who just finished the semester with four A’s and a B?!? This freakin’ guy, that’s who!!!


 
 
 

It took 32 years, but it finally happened! All thanks to the new Destructoid forums!


 
 
 

It’s no secret around here that I love the movie Heathers. However, I don’t often talk about the soundtrack. This song is legit desert island material for me.



 
 
 

I’m slowly dipping my toes further and further into video game music. This demo is my first real attempt. I still need to upload it to Ableton, mix, and add some overdubs, but this feels like a solid foundation to build from!



 
 
 

It didn’t look like something I’d get into, but I started watching The Good Place on a whim (also, Ted Danson!), and everyone was right. It’s great. I finished the first season in less than 24hrs, and I’m watching season two right now!


 
 
 

#MyFirstQuickpost was about a comic I like a bunch, and (although, the Disqus history is gone now) Anthony Marzano (aka my arch nemesis) was the very first friend I made here as a result.


 
 
 

Are there any goofy video game mysteries that keep you up at night? I’m looking for submissions of any kind, no matter how insane, dumb, or small. It’s about to be summer break, so I’ve got a few months to play detective.


 
 
 

One of the things on my bucket list is to own a guitar that glows neon green like the violin in Starship Troopers.


 
 
 

I had a Zoom party with a few of my friends last night, all of us drinking and hanging out digitally. I gotta say, it was a good time! I thought it’d be lame, but it was rad as hell. It’s nice to have even just a little slice of normal these days.

 
 
 
 

I’m about two hours into Beyond: Two Souls, and I’m starting to question whether I really do have terrible taste in games. I loved Detroit, liked Heavy Rain, and I’m definitely digging this so far. It’s goofy sci-fi, and I’m all about that stuff


 
 
 

It’s 2:15 AM, and I’m currently rewatching The Fifth Element for the hundredth time. I always notice something new upon subsequent viewings. This time I realized that the population has grown to 200 billion, compared to the current 7.53 billion.


 
 
 

Pikuniku is so dang adorable! I was a bit skeptical for the first 30-40 mins, but it’s definitely awesome. Paper Mario-style humor with light light puzzles and super chill. I’m really glad I hopped on that $1 Switch sale! Thanks, Jordan!


 
 
 

I’ve been making decent progress with that Korg Kaossilator app that I posted about a while ago. My most recent creation is this goofy beat! It ain’t too fancy, but I had a lot of fun making it haha...



 
 
 

I just finished episode 5 of Tiger King, and I‘ve come to the conclusion that Joe Exotic is 100% Kenny Powers from Eastbound & Down.


 
 
 

I figured this show would be dumb, but Tiger King (and this man’s jacket) is pretty damn wonderful.


 
 


About Kevin Mersereauone of us since 10:38 AM on 05.02.2014

I like video games, music, comics, and corgis a whole lot. Pretty much everything I do in my free time revolves around these four things...
