If a tree falls in a forest, and there’s no one around to hear it, and a certain owl decided to stream his noob ass at Dead Cells, would anyone watch? BUMP: Streaming now!

Alright, enough screwing around. It’s time.


Happy birthday, Admiration Hackbang!


I beat Minit, took me about an hour and a half. I know the game is big on optimizing runs, but I’m not really compelled to play through it again. Oh well.


At the behest of our own PhilKenSebben, I tried out the Vasara Collection (currently on sale for $1 on Switch eShop and Steam!) and recorded my impressions. I decided to turn it into my very first full-blown C-Blog! Please forgive me if it's a bit rough.


Vasara Collection: A Closer Look

Around the turn of the century, a game developer named Visco created a pair of shmups that take place in an alternate-history feudal Japan.  When I say “alternate history”, I mean samurais riding flying motorcycles, sh...


Happy birthday to our resident chewing gum, JuicierFruit! (More heartfelt birthday wishes in comments)


I bought Donut County, then immediately downloaded and started Donut County, then beat Donut County in one sitting. It's a short game, but it's kinda nice to have such a quick turnaround in this era of the backlog. Also, it was fun.


Mixed feelings on this Mario rumor. More people being able to play these classics is a great thing, but I own all of the rumored games already and I'm not sure I could bring myself to spend that kind of money on a port. But what if there's extras?


What the shit guys. I don’t post for 18 hours and I come back to find Nightmare 2004 Remastered.


ARMS is a bit more fun (and much easier to control) after trying it for a couple of days. Doubt I'll play it beyond the trial, but at least I'll know what it's all about if they do wind up making a sequel.


*cracks open 3DS* Screw it, time to see what Shantae is all about.


First mow of the year! Mowing made me want to play Monster Hunter for some reason. Then Mario Maker 2. Then Golden Sun, Chrono Trigger, and Harvest Moon? Anyone else have weird/random associations like that?


I like the style of ARMS, but I don’t know if I like the gameplay.


Having just finished VA-11 Hall-A, I was going to start a new game tonight. Might as well be ARMS!


And that's a wrap on VA-11 Hall-A. All endings, prologue/bonus sequences, Model Warrior Julianne, the whole deal. Enjoyable game, though I admit I expected more to be wrapped up by the end. But I guess that's not the point. I had fun, in any case.


Going out in public be like


Anything is toilet paper if you're brave enough.


Holy crap, is that a Destructoid reference?


Glad that everyone is getting their copies of Doom and Animal Crossing (even if some of them are running late). Meanwhile, I'll just be over here, waiting for the TG-16 Mini to get a new release date.


What's worse than one coronavirus?


FINALLY. My patience has been rewarded!


I promise it’s a coincidence that I’m playing this right now.


As I've seen people mentioning Edith Finch a few times here lately, it seemed like a good time to post this. A lengthy watch, but if you enjoyed the game, it really puts things in perspective and might answer some questions for you. Edit: HUGE SPOILERS
