I've postponed my next cblog long enough. Expect it around afternoon tomorrow.

 
 
 

I did it. I Chained the Astral. Now it's time for me to Girls the City of River.

 
 
 

I look away from the Banjo demonstration stream for five minutes and multiple Discord servers are exploding about Sans and Megalovania in Smash. This must be the work of Sakurai.

 
 
 

I've been using my spare time to work on a little something I want to share in the cblogs over the past several weeks! It still needs more work, but I think it'll be ready around... this weekend~? Keep an eye out if you like Cedi's brand of Shenanigans...

 
 
 

Still adjusting to Astral Chains' controls, beat File 3. I have some nitpicks like the corner-jumps that may or may not remain nitpicks as I get more used to it, but overall I'm really liking this new approach to a Platinum game...!

 
 
 

Alright, I've saved my other Switch voucher specifically for this occassion, I shouldn't keep putting off the fun stuff I want to do for this weekend. Time to start Astral Chain...!

 
 
 

For some reason I've been feeling down lately, even though I'm feeling great about work. I think it's probably the news. At least I have a long holiday weekend to help me recharge...!

 
 
 

It's weird contrasting how excited I was for KH3 in January versus how I feel about Disney as a whole today. Like I just can't look at the game I hyped up the most this year the same way after noticing how greedy/monopolizing Disney's business has been.

 
 
 

Why couldn't real life school have been as much fun as Fire Emblem Three Houses?

 
 
 

Lil' heads up. Starting today, I'm taking a sabbatical from writing articles for a month or two. It's something I've considered a while and discussed with the editors last week. I'll still be around the community tho, so feel free to poke me for anything!

 
 
 
 

Days like today make me wish the weekend was 3 days long instead of 2. I'm enjoying it and all, but I don't really feel "refreshed"... at least not yet.

 
 
 

You ever have trouble sleeping and have no idea why? Apparently despite our best efforts, neither myself nor my dad have slept well this whole week...

 
 
 

Just one time... just one time, Activision, I wanted to be wrong to be skeptical about your microtransaction-like cosmetics system in Crash Nitro Fueled. I see now I unwittingly made a good call in waiting rather than buying the moment I had the cash.

 
 
 

I've only just started Three Houses and I think I'm already hooked because I feel like playing for about 10 minutes before work today heck

 
 
 

Long story short, I forgot about the Switch voucher deal, realized I could actually take good advantage of it now (as opposed to when it was announced), and now I own Three Houses. PSA, those vouchers are going off of sale at the end of the month.

Lethal League Blaze excites the competitive casual in me

Like a deconstruction of a shonen protagonist, I admire the spirit of competition, but I'm much more of a casual than a hardcore player. I get a thrill from trying to climb up leaderboards and learning new things about the online versus gam...

 
 
 

For some reason I'm so much happier for this weekend than usual, even though I had a pretty alright work week.

 
 
 

Spontaneous what-if question time: If you had an average AA game development budget and a team that shared your vision, what kind of video game would you want to create?

 
 
 

Now that my God of War PS4 playthrough is a while behind me, it occurs to me... Dad of Boy 2 when?

 
 
 

I don't know whether my child self would be impressed or ashamed that I have such a big collection of games I've not finished so many of them.

 
 
 

Last night I discovered that my moth OC apparently has a page on the Kaiju Fanon Wiki. A practically empty page, but apparently it... exists? Okay?

 
 
 

Lethal League Blaze has a delightful, weird quality where I enjoy every match, even if I got my rear handed to me in a 1v1 and if I had framerate issues (tho still fix Switch Online, Nintendo). I'm just always amused and excited by the outcome of a fight!

 
 
 

Oh no... I think I like Auto Chess. I've barely started playing it, but I think it hits too many of my personal interests.

I’ve only even heard of half of these games and I’ve completed exactly zero of I am quite excited!

 
VideogameScrapbook

@Peter Glagowski, according to your preview of the Genesis Mini, the games were originally modified to have a pan-and-scan widescreen Has that been scrapped for stretched widescreen for every game, or do some games still offer that feature?

Got a new cover up, and its another from AiC! I did a much better job on this one, thankfully, as Angry Chair is probably my favorite AiC The solo, which is borderline wankery, was tricky to emulate, but I think I did okay!
