Had a good night. Got to see my two best friends, got my hands on a SNES Classic, ate filet mignon and lobster tail at a hibachi grill, and went to the Great American Comedy Festival and saw Joel McHale perform live. And now I sleep.


Be careful around the net, Avengers 4 details are getting leaked out. While none of the ones I have seen have been that bad, they're out there and they're still spoilers.


The Pokemon Let's Go Pokeball Plus Bundles are up for preorder on Amazon. For anyone interested. EDIT: Link to the Pikachu version now in the comments courtesy of Gmana.


Time for another weekly reminder for June's #BandofBloggers theme Parents and the #BookoftheMonth The Warrior Heir. Now that my arm is mostly healed I'm hoping to get my BoB blog on Venetica up in the coming week. Links in the comments. Gif unrelated.


The AT&T and Time Warner merger got approved (which is bullshit) and now they're going to go into a bidding war with Disney for Fox (which they will lose and just piss off Disney).


The only thing about Ghost of Tsushima I'm not a fan of is that they keep calling it a samurai game. It's not. The main character is a ronin, not a samurai & based on gameplay he behaves more like a ninja. I dunno, it's a nitpick I guess, but it bugs me.


Well, Smash Ultimate looks fan-fucking-tastic! December can not come soon enough!


Just watched Sony's conference. TLOU2 looks interesting, Ghost of Tsushima looks fun, Death Stranding is intriguing if weird, Spider-Man looks amazing, the RE2 Remake makes me want to start playing REmake, and Control was an interesting surprise.


Looks like Microsoft actually did good this year. Good. Unfortunately I also see they are already teasing the XBONE's replacement, which means I won't be getting one until they're cheap, since it will likely be abandoned next year.


The best thing I can say about EA's conference is that I had a lot of fun cracking jokes about it here on Dtoid. And really, isn't that what really matters?


Two gripes. Gripe No. 1: Why is so much Harley Quinn merchandise glamorizing her abusive relationship with Joker? Gripe No. 2: Why is 99% of Harley Quinn clothing for women only? Guys like Harley Quinn too and her diamond pattern could easily be unisex.


How much would the internet explode if Nintendo's E3 Direct announced that Metroid Prime 4 had been renamed Metroid Prime Federation 4ce?


Dead or Alive 6 announced. Btw did we miss E3? Has it already come and gone?


Weekly reminder for this month's #BandofBloggers prompt, Parents. I'm hoping to get my own BoB blog on Venetica up soon. Also there's a new #BookoftheMonth for June. This month is The Warrior Heir. Links to both in comments. Picture unrelated. BUMP

Band of Bloggers - June 2018 Edition

Welcome to yet another installment of the newly revived Band of Bloggers. This time I, dephoenix, shall be your humble host. Last month my fellow Band of Bloggers-er Greenhornet214 blessed us with the theme of A Walk Through the Woods,...


Arby's switched to Coke products which means no more Mtn Dew Game Fuel at Arby's. Arby's is dead to me.


I decided to make this in lieu of a blog. Too much work, especially with only one good arm. I purposely didn't fill out the hype part. I'm not actually too into E3 this year. I'm not expecting much.


The sequel to March's #BookoftheMonth My Solo Exchange Diary came out yesterday. I just ordered my copy, thought I'd give you fine folks a heads up. I know that there were some fans of My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness that were looking forward to it.


About dephoenixlikessandwichesone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Current Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, and Self-Appointed Grand Duke Viceroy of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer, aspiring writer, and a big fan of dark, offbeat humor. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
