Just learned the guy that made the music for Made in Abyss (GREAT anime, good manga with ... odd... content at times) was heavily inspired by Metroid Prime. Makes sense. He did an amazing job

 
 
 

Have food poisoning for the first time, spent the night rushing to the bathroom over and over, and yet I still gotta get into work because no paid time off and I can't afford to be sick :(

 
 
 

I thought we would have finished Dark Souls 3 by now, but jesus that Ringed City DLC is giving us a challenge that I haven't felt since I first started playing Souls-type games

 
 
 

Not sure why, but for the first time in so long, I was able to play a game almost nonstop, completely immersed, with my SO. Though to do it at all is unusual. Maybe it's a sign of better mental health. I hope so, at least. Dark Souls 3 is reaaaally fun

 
 
 

Having that post-vacation, new-year existential dread and feelings of "what's the point!". Always a fun one. I just really don't like the 9-5 grind right now :(. But Mario Maker 2 and Dark Souls 3 PC have been small beacons of distraction at least

 
 
 

Playing through Octopath now since I was lucky enough to receive it from the SO. Lemme just say, after seeing how beautiful this engine was, why didn't Square immediately announce remakes of their old games with this engine? It would be amazing

 
 
 

Since Christmas eve and Day fall in the middle of the week, I'm here at work for "day where no one does anything cuz Christmas eve is tomorrow and the school is closed" day

 
 
 

Getting coins for the laundromat is always such a tedious process, and of course I forgot my Switch D:

 
 
 

Aww man, Crystal Chronicles got delayed to summer 2020. That's such a bummer, but as long as it's all good when it does launch, I can wait

 
 
 

You know sounds like nails on a chalkboard? I think I get the same reaction from hearing someone mash buttons on a game controller with no audio from the TV to supplement it.

 
 
 

Bf was kind enough to replace the keyboard I managed to break. Time for more clicky clacky times!

 
 
 

I'm replaying through Nuts and Bolts for the first time since I got it in 2008. Man, this game was special, it just came at an almost I possibly bad time. It would have been cool to see what they would have done with this if it was better received

 
 
 

The third Steven Universe game is exclusive to Apple Arcade, and thus, Apple devices. And has a surprise launch right now. That hurts deep :(

 
 
 

Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair on sale for $10 instead of $40? Fuckin yes please

 
 
 

Currently in that post-game & post-show void of nothingness where I can't decide on what I want to play and watch next, but everything I try just doesn't feel right

 
 
 

So I spilled a but of water on my mechanical keyboard while cleaning up, now the V and space bar don't register. Any tips?

 
 
 

I wanted to thank those of you who gave me tips yesterday for my shadowing of the engineers. The day is going well, most of it was spent doing inventory, but they're very accepting. It's not a guaranteed job offer,but I hope they find it easier to hire me

 
 
 

I work in IT, but only like extremely basic troubleshooting, and only software related. Tomorrow I start shadowing the Engineers and I am going to feel like a complete fraud and fish out of water. Fake it till you make it, though, right?? I hope...

 
 
 

Luigi's Mansion 3 has some of the most charming animations Nintendo has ever done. Feels like I'm watching a Luigi-focused Pixar movie at times during the opening cutscenes

 
 
 

For the first time in almost 2 years, I'll have an actual bed to sleep on instead of a sleeper sofa. BF and I are so excited. Though it's so exhausting having a sales person try and convince you to buy every single thing

 
 
 

Aside from the silly hurricane prep like water, food, and gas, I'm doing what really matters and charging my portables for the Long Nights. ... And also the silly stuff.

 
 
 

Used to be kinda excited for hurricanes but now I can't afford any more days off so pleeeease stay away from South Florida :( oh dear god the heat if we lose power

 
 
 

So I worked on my app project. I presented it to my Launchcode mentor, and NOW I have 2 weeks to study another language for a live-coding test as well as add onto my app. I'm just so mentally exhausted with this, I'm not sure I'll be able to keep it up

 
 
 

Started back on Destiny 2 on PC. Loving the 60+ FPS, but I need to play with others cuz playing can get pretty tedious. Though I am just trying to get through the story at the moment, so I should be fine until the endgame

 
 
 

I made my first "app"! All it does is make your input text into that SaRcAsM text from the spongebob memes, but it's still exciting to see something I made actually work, even if useless

Well, I'm your pretty run-of-the-mill gamer. I blend in with the rest of the Destructoid community commentors and have the same general taste in games.

I am a self-confessed Nintendo fanboy. I grew up with em' and plan on keeping them in my gaming life for as long as they exist. Course, I'm not a blind one, they have many many many problems, especially with their terrible handling of the Wii U.

I prefer RPGs and games heavy on story such as Bioshock. I tend to stay away from games like Call of Duty or any game that focuses too heaviy on multiplayer.
