Unhappiness: feeling obligated to type in 3300 bytes in hexadecimal because free OCR appears to fail miserably in the task. Relief: it could be so, so much worse.


 
 
 

Pineapple on pizza makes the rancid milk called "cheese" tolerable.

 
 
 
 
 

Because cats and Fridays, here's something I found when doing... research for a future blog.



 
 
 

Cheap game-related cardboard crafts that Hiryuu might appreciate. These pieces make a 4x4x4 cube.


 
 
 

Do you imagine the Yoshi game with the crafts aesthetics will come with a cardboard DIY-Yoshi?

 
 
 

Birthday paradox is about how many people are needed for it to be likely that two people share a birthday. Now I'm wondering how many ppl we can expect to need to have someone's bday every day of the year.

 
 
 

Labo reminded me of this: https://www.destructoid.com/dad-replaces-son-s-cardboard-nintendo-switch-with-real-one-437652.phtml

 
 
 

Gryzor on MSX2 highlights how having more content (levels) isn't all that important when so many other areas are lacking.



 
 
 

Freeing time for projects by stopping playing video games has the unfortunate consequence of having time to come up with more interesting new projects. From backlogs of games to backlogs of projects. Video related to one such thing.



 
 
 

For my 2*2*3*5*5th qpost... more SCC Konami music, but Konami's own versions this time... except for the stereo effect, I think.



 
 
 

Vampire Killer (Konami, 1986) was just given an updated soundtrack using Konami's SCC (Sound Custom Chip, which added more sound channels; think the extra chip in Famicom version of Castlevania 3). (Replaced link with a better one; sorry for the bump)



 
 
 
 

I uninstalled Steam and games from GOG, hid my portable consoles, uninstalled mobile games and unplugged home consoles. This'll be interesting.

 
 
 

True story: The first time I heard of GOG, I thought it was a hoax or a scam: it was too good to be true. Didn't buy games there until years later.

 
 
 

Unfinished Battlegrounds already in 2003. I liked the original :/



 
 
 

After having played as Kabuto in Giants: Citizen Kabuto (Planet Moon/Interplay, 2000), dinosaurs are like a downgrade to a Reliant Robin.

 
 
 

I wish they'd have a proper translation and a manual instead of, well, this... so far, DragonFangZ on Switch feels way better than Quest of Dungeons.


 
 
 

Outlander, almost a Mad Max game on 16-bit home consoles.



 
 
 

#TuesdayMusic Well, I don't know if this is from a Turrican game or if it is a bonus track for a Turrican music record. Retrofraction can probably fill me in?



 
 
 

Styling Star is reminding me of TMS:FE -- both have licensed tracks from Avex and I'm quite liking them... but SS has English versions only and the overall theme is different from TMS:FE. (Lady Moon/Tsukiko's Wings is my fave so far.)



 
 
 

Eh, my fave Switch games of 2017 in alphabetical order: Golf Story, Has-Been Heroes, Namco Museum, Neon Chrome, Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Also really liked Ironcast, Strikers 1945.

 
 
 

Did you write a Switch prediction blog between 10/2016-02/2017? I'm considering writing a cblog on how right Dtoid's armchair analysts were in their guesses one year after the system's release, a joint follow-up if you will.

 
 
 

Giving up on XC2: I've finished the plot and most of the quests, but getting all rare Blades summoned and all rare Blades' affinity charts maxed out doesn't feel like it's worth the effort.

 
 
 

[NVGR] Introspection on my 2017 on Dtoid

Honestly, this blog really has little to do with the site or video games, so you shouldn't bother reading it unless you're the anointed recapper. 90 years ago, in 1927, Max Ehrmann wrote his poem "Desiderata", or "desired things". Giv...

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

For the good of me and everyone else, I'm now voluntarily banned on Disqus, so I won't partake in conversation on the site.
