I played P.T. and triggered the trailer and now I'm sad. Wonderful experience! Glad I 'bought' it all those years ago and then jumped through hoops to force it to download to my Pro. Did I mention I'm sad? Oh well.

 
 
 

It only took 14 years, but I finally finished Silent Hill 4. Extremely interesting game, but I'm glad I'm done with the big 4. I don't think I'll be playing anything after 4 but P.T. just for curiosity's sake. Thoughts within...

 
 
 

Silent Hill 1-3 re-plays complete. Just configured 4 for PC (looks like it'll have to stay at 4:3 res, oh well), and I'm ready to finally dive into this one and finish it after 14 years and several failed attempts.

 
 
 
 

I'm working on a Powerpoint presentation about my video games because I have to give a talk to a college class tomorrow and it's making me want to write that blog here that I always talk about one day writing... but that I'll never get around to.

 
 
 

2 Octobers ago I did a series run of Castlevania, last year it was Metroid, this year I'm thinking Silent Hill. I've only ever finished 1-3. Started 4 plenty of times, and have no idea what horrors await me after that.

 
 
 
 

Should I buy DQ XI right now on Steam in a drunken fit of stupidity? Or be a patient boy and wait for the Switch version? GO.

 
 
 
 
 

Remember this thing? I built it about 2 years ago but I never use it. Which is sad. I just had the idea to put one of my extra Raspberry Pi 3b+ units in it and run RetroPie as well as add a Power/HDMI/USB passthrough. Maybe I'll use it more this way?


 
 
 
 
 

I think this is the first and last time I make a touch screen game. The Raspberry Pi couldn't handle it for some reason (runs at 14fps..), the touch screen required a hack to work, and now I have to hide a Windows laptop under a pedestal! Don't do art.


 
 
 

I'm so glad I 'bought' P.T. through the PSN website back before I ever had a PS4. Just did the trick to download it by setting up my PC as a proxy server. This should be fun!

 
 
 
 
 
 

So this is what I've ACTUALLY been doing the last two weeks. More photos in the comments! Here are two new arcade cabinets for two of my oldest games: Debtris, and The Adventures of Sisyphus. Exhibition of 8 works coming up in Sept. in Massachusetts.


 
 
 

I made some really cool arcade cabinets but the light isn't great (duh, it's 9:30pm) so I'll share tomorrow. In the meantime, help me pick my next backlog game to conquer - list in comments. Also Wes is hot.

 
 
 

Beat Samarost 3, which was nice. Also tried to get back into Shadow Warrior 2013 and I just can't. It's so boring after playing DOOM and it's really doing nothing for me. The new Dangus isn't playing games he doesn't like just for posterity - he moves on.

 
 
 

I'm still in a FPS mood so maybe I'll try for the 40th time in the last year to get No One Lives Forever 1+2 working on my PC. I fixed the 60fps audio bug at one point, but never could address the stuttering, janky mouse movement. Anyone have any luck?

 
 
 

Well I'm 17 levels into DOOM 64 and I think it's safe to say it's my favorite of the older games. Which is a nice surprise, because I always assumed it was a port and never planned to play it. Series ranking time! DOOM(2016)>DOOM 64>DOOM>DOOM II>>>>DOOM 3
