Touhou Luna Nights in fugging incredible and I'm sorry it took me till now to get to it. The title screen remix alone punched me in the face, and it just got cooler and cooler from there. Case in point, minute TEN:


Took almost a decade, but I'm in there. Got my horrible mutant character, a decent beginner's class, the Master Key, 60fps, a light visual mod, and a shield strong enough to be a sword. Let's go, Dark Souls.


This ain't normal Quickpost fare, but Card Sagas Wars' first community tournament just entered its Top 8. The game is super sick, has a crossover roster of champions, and is a pixel-art beauty. Take a look! https://www.twitch.tv/masterhandgaming


The amount of snow and hail in Spring we've got over the past week feels post-apocalyptic.


I joined a podcast! Me and my colleagues discuss what will happen to conventions in a post-pandemic world, our histories with Final Fantasy, and what to do in quarantine! https://player.fm/series/pixels-ink/pixels-ink-episode-308-conpocalypse


Ehrgeiz: God Bless The Ring is an acceptable game to play in 2020, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.




GOG, Steam, and Itch all have "Stay Home" free game packs going on, but I need to highlight Lucah: Born of a Dream on Itch. It's a character action game with a WILD art style, and there's really no reason not to get it. Also, Shadow Warrior on GOG.


This choice is absolutely mullering me. What say you: Dark Souls 3 + something small, Skul: The Hero Slayer, or 2 or 3 obscure games? It's a real brain-scratcher, to be sure.


So, been wondering how my interview went? If so, thanks for the kind thoughts. Anyways, I have been too. I've been looking to get into this field since I was a kid, WHAT'S ANOTHER TWO OR THREE WEEKS?!


Alright. Today's the day of the big interview. Never been more prepared for anything in my life. I even have a backup job waiting in the wings. Time to calm down, and take transit. See you on the other side, everybody.


Verdict from the call: I'm getting a follow-up interview in-person in the next two weeks. The job seems to fit me like a glove, so we're gonna' see if this works out. AND THE STRESS CONTINUES! ...But not as much.


I'm having a potentially life-altering telephone interview this afternoon. Wish me luck...


12 unedited minutes of Genshin Impact footage from IGN Japan. It wears its Breath of the Wild traits on its sleeve, but it's probably better with them. Menus and HUD are less impressive. Combat looks quite good, and this PC skew is running very smoothly.


YOOOOO!!! Soleil, the ex-Ninja Gaiden devs behind Naruto Shinobi Striker, are making a 3D Samurai Jack game due out this summer! And there's even a bit of gameplay here!


So apparently, Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting selectable assists like Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. That's a thing. Probably good for player creativity.


Aw man, I'm so psyched about watching Madoka Magica again. The plot, the writing, the cinematography, the editing, the backgrounds, the animation - everything in Magia Record is just so good! RRRRRRGGGHHH! I-LOVE-IT!


Tonight, go to sleep to the soothing steel-on-bone sounds of the highest-level hack-and-slash gameplay in the world.


This was made for someone on here. Merry belated Christmas, ya filthy animals.


Boiling Take: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate does need one more first-party Nintendo rep to be truly complete, and that character should be Wonder Red, Master Hand, or Tabuu. Feverish Nightmare Take: If you want a memetic pick, a good fangame probably has it.


Finished listening to the 7-hour Pokemon Omega Ruby analysis in record-breaking time. A lot of the points raised still apply to Sword and Shield, so I'd say it's worth a shot. Don't worry, there are timestamps - and a lovely Scottish accent.


Ys VIII has had a ton of problems in the West ever since it launched. However, working with the publisher, hackerman Durante just released a massive technical overhaul for the Steam version - that even added co-op! And it's half off this weekend!


I take back everything good I've ever said about mods.


The official Devil May Cry Twitter has a video teasing announcements of something coming to the Devil May Cry 3 Switch release. The big days are Jan. 16th and 30th, and Feb. 13th. Website implies Style Switching, but those are good Direct dates too...


The past day in game news feels comprised of small announcements that could lead to big ones. I'm curious as to what the Pokemon Direct and inevitable PS5 presentations have in store, and I don't think Tencent loaning Platinum money is a big deal.


About Uncle Arena Fighterone of us since 11:00 AM on 12.28.2018

Howdy. RMC here.

Big fan of action games, especially stylish action and arena fighters. Regular fighting games are an old flame of mine, though I was never any good at them. Platformers are a casual interest.

As for a bit about myself, I am a freelance writer and aspiring game designer. I'm also Canadian, and thus subject to raised Canadian game prices! Woo!

Ask me anything about fighting games. I know a little about a lot of things.
