I've done and started skateboarding again. Taking it easy just remwring how to ollie and shuv it, and some freestyle stuff like Casper's. Outta shape tho, I can only last like 20 mins but it's getting easier each time

 
 
 

Did moe ever figure out who's been crank calling him these past 30 years?

 
 
 

Welp. thats a dead phone. kind of. my phone fell. flat. on. its. screen. display is pitch black, there several cracks along one side of the screen. Bluetooth is still ok, i could listen to music driving home, strangely enough. repair or replace phone?

 
 
 

does anyone have any experience with a faulty pokemon y cart, or 3ds cart, in general? How reasonable is it to expect Nintendo to repair and keep all of my prized pokemon in it's innards? I've already googled, and cleaned both cart and 2ds.

 
 
 

A mysterious package has appeared! A. Attack B. Defend C. Use scissor D. Run Away


 
 
 

So today I found out about Charizarding, and inadvertently, squirtling

 
 
 

The Council did not counsel me on the console matters

 
 
 

#ArbitraryMetalTuesday demands my posting of one of my favorite tracks from Nuclear Rabbit, a band which itself is a bit of a deep cut, if that were a thing. Haven't sought them out recently, but this song paints vivid imagery, and remains a fave.



 
 
 

Hot my first dose of the vacksin! I'm due for my 2nd on 4/20---sgoild I smoke before or after my appointment har har

welp. Got my stimmy moneys. Used it to upgrade my computer case so that i can install more storage space and mount my new 1TB SSD to install of my Steam and EGS library, probably my GOG stuff as well. Also bought a new skate board and knee/elbow pads

 
 
 
 

You know what game the Epic Games Store lacks? Jazz Jackrabbit. You'd think one of Epic's first games would be on there, back when they were known as Epic Mega Games, and they had that dople blue logo with clouds in the sky.

 
 
 

last post of the night i promise but i cant not share this to those not in the know; i just found it about 12 mins ago. The wait is worth the payoff. some of the best drum shredding ive seen



 
 
 

I've been watching a lot of Skating on instagram, and it's really making me want to ride on a board again. kinda miss that activity despite the constant danger of breaking something on my body. Video very related



 
 
 

Please discuss FO76 here. I want to know about this game in its current state. How glitchy is it? Is it more fun for quests or base building? How much do mtx intrude while playing? Is the building better than FO4's?

 
 
 

Who's worse? EA, Activision Blizzard, or Nintendo?

 
 
 

I love how Jurassic World Evolution will give you a contract to sell a dinosaur without explaining how to sell a dinosaur in the first place. Here's a picture. Having fun otherwise.


 
 
 

Anyone ever see a queen termite and think, "man, i could eat a whole baguette right now..."


 
 
 

HAPPY BDAY DTOID! THANKS FOR ALL THE GAMING NEWS, BLOG POSTS, VIDEO GAME DISCOURSE, QTOID, AND ALLOWING ME TO BE DUMB ON A VIDEO GAME SITE'S COMMENTS SECTION. YOU HAVE BEEN MY TRUE SOCIAL SITE FOR OVER 10 YEARS

 
 
 

My HLJ haul arrived. Still missing: my loop effects pedal from Amazon. Some of my favorite things, Berserk, From Soft figmas, and SKELETONSSSSSS


 
 
 

If anyone like forgotten, quirky and japanese horror films I can recommend Cursed (2004), a delightful film about a haunted convenience store. Just rewatched it recently and it held up.

 
 
 

Slayed the Great Izuchi in the demo 2 of MHR, and I'm sold. How much to time travel to the 26th?

 
 


About cockaroachone of us since 5:06 PM on 10.15.2009

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
Portal
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Bloodborne
MGS:Revengance
Banjo Kazooie
Katamari Damacy
Shadows of the Colossus
Doom
Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Painkiller
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
Earthbound
Tokyo Jungle (an odd one, for sure, but i love it so)
