I was looking through my old children's books and I remembered how much I was into haunted houses and castles as a kid, and now I want a haunted house/castle building simulation game. I don't know what the goal would be though.


I didn't see much video game cosplaying at Boston Comic-Con, perhaps unsurprisingly, but I did see someone dressed as Bayek of Siwa. That was cool. Interestingly, the most popular costumes appeared to be four guys dressed like KISS.


After going through the Discovery Tour in AC: Origins I feel bad about how much work they put into recreating Ancient Egypt because it's lost on me. I'm not paying attention to the lives of Ancient Egyptians when I'm stabbing my way through the Greek army


I need to stop watching incompetent Let's Players. I should make it a rule to stop the moment they are unable to follow basic instructions.


So few people have played Solo that I can't find a walkthrough for it anywhere, which is unfortunate because I'm stuck on a puzzle and I'm thinking about quitting the whole thing.


Typing "The Sexy Brutale" into Tumblr was a mistake.


I was enjoying The Sexy Brutale up until the ending. I hate those kinds of endings, they're so uninspired. And I must say, if anyone is planning on playing it I must insist on using a controller, the keyboard controls are amazingly uncomfortable.


I seem to be having a run of bad luck for PC games which would be fun if the keyboard controls weren't terrible and unchangeable. First The Sexy Brutale then Solo.


Time to find out if Layton's Mystery Journey really does spit on the Professor Layton legacy.


There wasn't a lot of video game news out of the SDCC. I'm a little disappointed.


For a bit I thought the map music from Mass Effect was ripping off the Water Ruins music from Jet Force Gemini, but now I see they're different. I wish there was a way to put two YouTube videos in these comments.


I replayed A Link Between Worlds. I enjoyed it a lot more this time, even though I played it on Hero Mode. It helped to not think of it as a ripoff of A Link to the Past, but as an improvement.


Alright Yacht Club, this is getting stupid. The last Shovel Knight expansion didn't take this long. Nobody cares about your dumb card game.


I finished Halo Wars 2, and now I really wish whoever did the writing for that did the writing for the main games, because the story was so much better.


I'm still waiting on a re-release of Dishonored 2 with all the DLC and stuff.


I thought I would give Blast Corps another shot on Rare Replay, but I got to the first Backlash level and quickly changed my mind.


Unlike Conker's Bad Fur Day, Jet Force Gemini still holds up today. As long as you use the modern controls on Rare Replay.


Except for graphics, A Link to the Past does not deserve the high praise it gets, because every subsequent 2D Zelda game has surpassed it, from story, to characters, to less obtuse puzzles, to bosses who don't need finite items to beat.


I'm replaying Conker's Bad Fur Day for the first time in a while, and I suspect the game is just a mashup of Rare's leftover ideas from other games. Everything feels half done, and there's a lot of tedious busywork.


I beat Halo 5 on Legendary. But because my internet wasn't working when I beat a couple of levels I don't get the achievement for beating it on Legendary, even though it says I beat the levels in the game itself, because the Xbox One is a piece of shit.


The problem with Halo games, especially on Legendary, is the arbitrary checkpoint system. Spend ten minutes clearing out a room? Well too bad the next bad guy filled room is the one with the checkpoint.


I'm playing Halo 5 on Legendary. Boy do I hate fighting Forerunners, and boy do I hate the stupidity of my AI teammates.


I like Myst III and IV and want to own them again, but GOG.com is just charging too much for them. I'm gonna wait for a sale.


My problem with the Halo games is that way back in Halo 1 I heard about the hidden video you get if you completed it on Legendary, and I saw how the emblem changes depending on what difficulty you play, so now I have to play every game on Legendary.


There should be a Let's Play YouTube channel done by two guys in prison. Not a maximum security prison, it would be something to do for their rehab. I would watch that.
