Suuuuuuushiiiiiiii I don't usually eat sushi, cuz of mercury and other non cool heavy metals, but goddamn I had to for my local spot having to close and find a new home. If you live in GA, pay I <3 Sushi a visit in Marietta, till they move to new home


Got some more vinyl today. I'm starting to develop a habit.The taco is totally for the Putting on the Ritz and no other song. And I could always use more hip hop on wax with Midnight Marauders


Just bought Kid Koala's vinyl re-release SE of Some of My Best Friends are DJ's, and pre-ordered Old Man Saxon's LE Rothko's Chicken and Waffles Amber vinyl as well.


The Steam Deck: exists Valve: What microchip shortage?


Any y'all heard about the tagheuer x Mario limited edition watch? https://www.tagheuer.com/us/en/smartwatches/tagheuer-connected-collaboration-3.html


i tried registering for the FF14 trial just to see what the hubbub was about, and i got stymied hard when you have to put the google authenticator one time password to register the google authenitcator...it kept not accepting the password. WTF SQeenix


I still have mp3's from the early 00's, do they go bad?


damn it nito, why's it feel like im fighting you for the first time? maybe its because you are usually one of my least fought bosses in all of my play throughs? 4 kings and BoC have been downed more than you in my history. oh i know why....Tomb of Giants


Dang double post, here's my kitty


That moment when eating something spicy and it makes your scalp tingle....I live for that shit


At a gay bar with my wife, for first time being on a packed small venue, and am very drunk y es muy bueno


I was gonna do the two thumbs thing, but im too excited: on Dec 5th, I am going to see GZA, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon perform at the 3 Chambers Tour.


Jeez I might actually want a silent hill skate deck, but only if it's priced right and comes with good trucks, wheels and bearings. If it's no name plastic crap I'm out


Happy dad day, dtoid dad's! I'm no dad, but I respect the dad's that stick around and try their best


Man RTJ 1 is just full of fucking bangers from beginning to end. Love El-P's production skills sooo much. This song i actually dont care much for the lyrical version, that beat is just too good



Ok but what happened to Metroid Prime 4?


PSA: For anyone that cares, Tokyo Jungle is on PSNow, to play for streaming. If you missed out on this game, perfect time to jump in if you have PSNow. I played some last night and it plays exactly the same. Man I love that survival mode.


ok, i am looking for a game reviewed on this very website around 2 years ago, but i cannot remember the title. The screenshots included is sort of god with antlers or something like that, and it was possible eurojank. It did review favorably though.


Welp I just saw on my Instagram feed an ad for light up butt plugs, specifically so you can have DAT UNDERGLOW like a customized car in the night. Do I want one? Hmmmmm


Super Mario Land 2 is a fun little game. It has some QoL stuff missing from current recent games, like game overs restarting you right at the level you attempted, complete with saving your mid level continue point.


something strangely refreshing about playing old games, tonight I just popped in Super Mario Land into my Super Game Boy and had fun taking turns and shots with my wife, and a friend on video chat cheering on. The we did Lion King; practice is needed.




Man , i found BB kings club in NYC shut down. in 2018! wtf, so many good shows i saw there. The Skatalites. Del the Funkee Homosapien. The Misfits halloween show. fun/dumb anecdote in the comments


Well, this is my work today. The Dr is out, and I have time to organize all these stock lenses we inherited from another store closure (RIP Karoo optical) luckily it's a half day too. Lenses in those upper shelves, pile in the mid, and all in that safe

My favorite games meld music, art, and gameplay to enhance one another, elevating the product to something beyond mere "consumption"; it's an experience. Not everyone will like them, but they do gain a passionate following. Sorry if anything I said sounded pretentious, I am trying to be sincere. I love music and art, I've dabble in both for over 20 years now, so I appreciate games that put love into their art assets, animations, character design, level design, music, sound design, storytelling, and voice acting, even if the gameplay is simplistic (as long as it's fun!). These games also tend to feel nice- the control has a certain snap to it, enhanced by the visual and audio cues. This list may be biased towards my adolescence and childhood favorites from the SNES and N64/PSX days, so bare with me: you will see a lot of retro favorites. If your favorite is not on the list, it's probably because i didn't play it as a child/adolescent, or as an adult, for that matter.

In a somewhat random order:
Chrono Trigger
Super Smash Bros Melee
World of Warcraft (Classic/Vanilla)
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Banjo Kazooie
Katamari Damacy
Shadows of the Colossus
Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Meat Boy
Donkey Kong Country
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Human Fall Flat
World of Horror
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Super Mario Odyssey
Metal Slug 3
Tokyo Jungle (an odd one, for sure, but i love it so)
