Been playing a lot of Gods and Monsters lately. If you enjoy a surprising amount of Greek jokes that don't explain the punchline to you I can highly recommend it. The game handles really well and looks stupidly nice. Nice upbeat experience.


Beat the final eff you dungeon of Yakuza 7. I find it really sweet how often Yakuza games say nice things about you (or thank you) for doing things in them.


Been a couple weeks (13 days) since I cut out social networks from my life. I find that my knowledge of the goings on in the world apparently hasn't changed but my stress levels have largely plummeted. Even as work gets pretty intense.


Early impressions of Yakuza 7 is that it is a charming, lovely, engaging experience filled with fun characters. While it would deeply offend weebs, the English VA is really good. Lots of great additional lines (no subs, so probably ad libbing).


On the same week as the PS5 being released I got a lifetime PSN ban from Sony for having a modded PS3 lol. They want to prevent piracy and the solution was blocking me from buying anything from them. The math checks out! Surprisingly not really bothered.


My next year, or, do you like free stuff?

Hey Folks! It's been a while. I've still got other things I need to write going forward but life's a beach. I'm going to be trying to improve my quality of life and I'm hoping to improve yours a little while I do so. This will be a mul...


That spam bot going around the comments saying it bought an expensive car the moment it got a big paycheck has me shaking my head. That is fiscally irresponsible little bot. You shouldn't be blowing your money the second you have it.


Good god. My hands are not built for this shit anymore. Great game though.


I adore Arlo's reaction. Also, finally having seen it. Woo you can be the zombie. That would be my pick. That or Enderman. (Link in description since it looks broke for me on the post?)



I would suggest whenever something happens with a property that has millions of fans to just not be surprised by anything. When you have millions of people you end up with at least three or four unique opinions. Maybe five on a good day.


Playing that mobile mario kart for the pins. I haven't touched the controls once and the worst outcome has been 2nd place lol.


My positive feelings towards Mario 64 as a child seem to be only amplified as an adult. Every level has been either a joy or so short that it doesn't overstay its welcome. Controls are just as good as I remember. I honestly have no personal complaints.


Built some furniture today. Only broke one piece while doing so. A new record!


If I don't have to take any kind of bullshit survey for the Xbox I'm just flat out getting it at launch.


I'm not privy to how the DRM works for optical drive consoles. Is there anything (besides $$$) that stops these digital consoles from accepting any external optical (format appropriate) drive?


http://twitch.tv/oafkad - Gonna be doing game dev for a couple hours. If anyone is interested.


"so we will be inviting some of our existing consumers" It stuns me that capitalism got so gross that consumer is what we call customers. Makes the whole process sound even more vile that it often is.


Sometimes it really is best to just start from scratch. Finally some progress. This weekend should mostly just be fun stuff.


Because of my move I was unable to continue doing Bass's Flaming Hot Jam. I am however still going to finish my game. I'll simply do it for Bass's Room Temperature Jam that is comprised of only me. Details in comments.


Might do a full review on it once I'm done but honestly I really like the Battletoads game. It absolutely murders my hands but I've been having a great time and it frequently makes Liz and I laugh. Can tell it was a passion project.


To answer the "How do you want to die?" question. I want it to be a surprise and while I'm sleeping. I want folks to talk about me like they do serial killers after the fact. "He was such a nice guy, I never would have thought this would happen."


Drove 28 hours over 4 days but I'm finally in Iowa. Very peaceful. Cats are finally exploring our new house. Good times.

A lot has changed since the last time I was here. And yet if you slapped two pictures of me beside one another you'd be hard pressed to see them.

If you really enjoy following someone that is almost unbelievably inoffensive I'm glad to offer. It isn't that I avoid controversy I'm just genetically predisposed to being boring.
