Again, the Switch has opened my eyes about a game. Hollow Knight is easily one of the best games I’ve ever played, maybe even top 5. Same goes for Hyper Light Drifter, though thats only top 10. Wandersong next, then my white whale: Cave Story+


Hollow Knight got a lot more fun when I finally threw away my manchild pride and just went on the wiki.


Im incredibly bad at hollow knight but at least this time around im “getting it” more. I still think the map system is awful but I’m learning to live with it.


I would like to give a big moist hug to the developers of Hyper Light Drifter and Donut County. These two games (the most recent two I have played) reminded me why I love games and why the indie scene is where its at.


BK did nothing wrong. EDIT: I totally forgot I ever posted this but I just remembered it and it seems there was a failure to communicate. I meant BK from Donut County, not the Burger Kaiser.


Are there any other games that are similar in terms of gameplay to Hyper Light Drifter? Im craving more.


I’m retroactively naming Hyper Light Drifter as my GotY for 2016. This is everything I desire in a game, and more. Fuck the 800 dash challenge tho :)


When the run is good:


Lol I didn't play all that much this last year. I did play close to 200 hours of Gungeon on Switch tho....


Meet me in the bathroom, Wes.


Watching Pan’s Labyrinth for the first time, and I think the faun has the best costume/makeup/prosthetics I’ve ever seen. Edit: Alright this film was pretty fantastic.


Another year, another reminder:


I know not everyone here has had the same feelings towards it, but Gris has really transcended being a game for me. I can’t quite explain it. It just perfectly connects some wires im my brain and brings me to tears simply by looking at it. Art is powerf


Did an escape room for the first time last night with Sarah and an old friend who was visiting from Vegas. It was actually a lot of fun, much more so than I would have expected.


2019 goal: play the plethora of games folks from the site have gifted me over the past few years. Titles include (but are not limited to): SUPERHOT, Celeste, A Hat in Time, Nier Automata, VVVVVV, Titan Souls, Thirty Flights of Loving [continued in disqus]


Persona 5 Racing


I have had my eyes opened to the world of IPAs. Elysian Space Dust IPA is, as the kids would say, “lit.”


Who wants to fly out to scenic Central Jersey to play The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls with me?


I’ll admit, Pokemon Lets Go is honestly better than the Gen 7 games despite being a kid/GO focused spinoff, and I’m loving it. Its how I imagined Kanto as a wee lad.


I dont deserve all the gifts that my family and partner gave me, but this was the first Christmas that Sarah and I celebrated together and it was the first Christmas in a long while that had some of the same magic that childhood Christmas Days have.


Gris is, uh, wow. Not finished yet, but I think this is my GOTY. Edit: yeah its my GOTY.


I vaguely remembered Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as my favorite film at one point, despite having only seen it once. Upon rewatching, it may not be my favorite, but it’s up there. Charlie Kaufman’s screenplays never disappoint.


Well, this has probably got to be my proudest gungeon achievement to date. Hero Shine (9 curse) run as Robot to completion. Yeehaw.


no context required


My Santa has been naughty this year. This is actually a good gift tho, thank you!

Big thanks to Dangus Taargus (who looks like a male model, by the way) for immortalizing my signature Chiyo frown in 8-Bit glory.
