Today is a good day for a picnic. It's so sunny I might even play some Mario Sunshine later to celebrate the good weather.


 
 
 

What is everyone else up to on this fine Saturday? I'll be out and about with the lady, probably playing some Warframe later this evening and maybe even some God of War. Also, congratulations Ireland, incredibly proud of that country right now.


 
 
 

A critic that shaped the video reviewing landscape and impacted so many people. May his family be treated with the privacy and respect they deserve and may his work live on to inspire others.


 
 
 

The Expanse (also known as "One of the five best TV shows still airing currently) might have finally gotten picked up by Amazon for their streaming service. There is a God after all.


 
 
 

It's the royal wedding bollocks over here today. I hope the groom turns to the cameras before the speeches, rips his shirt off, tears off a priest's head and holds it up while acting out the scene from Gladiator:


 
 
 

I'm sorry, what?! I'm there day one mate.


 
 
 

Flu is just the worst. States of lucidity and able to string sentences together, then states of headaches and blurry visions and a rising temperature. Germs suck.

 
 
 

Today is the day I watch Princess Bride for the first time. Hopefully I like it as much as most others do.

A rule for everything in life, whether it be babysitting, making love or telling off a small child: If at first you don't succeed... Try again, but with weapons.


 
 
 

I regret agreeing to this arrangement.


 
 
 
 

My friend who works in film as a sound designer is amazed at how illiterate I am when it comes to music. Apparently never attempting to listen to Gorrilaz is a criminal offence for an Englishman.

 
 
 

Shade's blog really spoke to me and inspired me a little. Guess it's time to write that Mental Health and Video Games blog I keep putting off. After I finish my CotW Edition of course which will be up tonight

 
 
 

I'm at a loss for words... Kind of shell shocked. As a script writer the way they handled these characters boggles my mind, and making Thanos such a central character really paid off in the grand scheme of things. For now, I can say it is superb fun.


 
 
 

I gotta try the Detroit: Become Human demo. I'm hoping it's as awkwardly terrible as all of Cage's other games.


 
 
 

Halfway through bingeing 'Made in Abyss' while I recover from food poisoning. Really good show, one of the better anime I've seen in some time. The animation alone makes it worth watching.


 
 
 

I just reached THAT part of God of War. Best thing about this game is that there are several "THAT parts" dished out over the course of the narrative.

 
 
 

So the film "You Were Never Really Here" starring Joaquin Phoenix is balls to the wall insanity. It might just be one of the best films I've seen in the past few years. Might review it on here sometime in blog form.

 
 
 

So I'm nearing the six hour mark of God of War. Thoughts so far? Bloody masterful, specifically its use of pacing between puzzles, action and dialogue. Its the definition of a polished game.

 
 
 

My studies have finished for the year, have some free time over summer so I can finally be more active on DToid and in Discord! I've missed actually being able to chat with you crazy cats.


 
 
 

There's nothing worse than being halfway through the writing of a blog and realising you can't structure it properly nor do you have the literary nous to pull it off, meaning you have to abandon it.

 
 
 

I mock Polygon a lot but they sure know what a perfect game looks like.


 
 
 

Been wanting to do a film oriented podcast for a while now. On the one hand, I have a good idea for it and my voice is butter. On the other hand, GM and Dino will murder me for two-timing and also I'm bad enough at the podcast lark as it is.


 
 
 

Right, since personal issues have made GMana and Guerrilla take a back seat, Comments of the Week are in need of at least two new recruits. We have cookies and hookers. Also you get to insult GM. Bumped.

 
 


About TheLimoMakerone of us since 6:59 AM on 03.25.2015

Hello there. I'm insane. From England.
I love what you've done to your carpets.

The horror genre means a great deal to me (mainly as they give me excellent ideas on how best to dispose of my ex-girlfriend) and I have expressed my love for the genre in countless blogs which must be especially grating for the other members of Destructoid to read but, eh, f*** it.

I mainly game on the Playstation 4 and you are more than welcome to connect with me on there if you want but, if you're new here, interact with me a bit first because, believe me, I'm an acquired taste.
Well, acquired taste... Wanker.
Tomato, tomato.

As for some of my favourite games, they range from Silent Hill 2, Okami, Deadly Premonition, To the Moon, Undertale, Bloodborne, Bioshock... I will play anything as I find joy in the strangest of places.

Anyhow, if you actually read this (which nobody does anymore), don't ever feel afraid to start a conversation with me in the comments or on discord. I will give anyone the time of day.
So long as you aren't French of course.

Also decided to add my Games of the Year from years past, just because I can't really place my thoughts elsewhere:


2005 - Shadow of the Colossus

2006 - Okami

2007 - BioShock

2008 - Call of Duty: World at War

2009 - Batman Arkham Asylum

2010 - Nier

2011 - Portal 2

2012 - Spec-Ops: The Line

2013 - The Last of Us

2014 - Valiant Hearts

2015 - Undertale

2016 - Oxenfree
