Has anyone ordered the Switch SNES controllers? I've been trying, but Nintendo's page is giving me nothing. Dtoid article said they ship on the 18th, but I can't even find that much info from Nintendo. Did the initial shipment sell out right away?

 
 
 

Anything Not Saved Will Be Lost

Whenever I see that phrase upon exiting a game, I always feel like some evangelical is proselytizing me. Ok, I get it, we all know, the wages of sin are death, and the wages of not saving your game are frustratedly replaying thru a par...

 
 
 
 

Really feeling hyped for the Turbografx-16 Mini. On NES mini there were a few titles on the Japanese version I was envious of. It seems Konami's approach is gonna be to give everyone both region's set of titles in the other language. I really like that.

 
 
 

Just noticed that Kimagure Orange Road has been added to Crunchyroll! I am so psyched. I've seriously wanted to watch this show for 25 years, no exaggeration.

 
 
 

Recently discovered Puce Mary. If you've never heard her, it's basically Aphex Twin summoning Satan. I'm impressed.

 
 
 

I'll be honest. I don't like Borderlands. All this talk about it tho is making me wish Gearbox would remake one of my favorite Wii games for the Switch! With HD rumble and slightly more accurate motion controls, it could be so good!


 
 
 

I just love this album cover! I don't care what you think, this is metal AF. The album itself is rather middling, seen any awesome album covers recently?


 
 
 

Was listening to the Avantasia & Candice Night song "Moonglow" earlier in the car. Gave me some intense ASMR.

 
 
 
 

Anyone else having issues with Genesis Alpha One? I was lucky enough to win it here the other day. Just now got around to trying to play it. It hung and crashed on the first loading screen after intro video. Twice.

 
 
 

Octopath Traveler: A Love Letter

I know I'm late to the party, but I recently started playing Octopath Traveler. I have limited money, limited time, and what feels like an unlimited backlog, so I'm often one of the last to play a game. I'm about 30 hours in so far. I'...

 
 
 
 

One Week of Fitness Boxing

First off, let me say thanks if you are reading this! And if you are not reading this, that's fine too. This is going to be the first blog post that I actually finish (hopefully). I tried to make a post with a direct game-by-game break...

 
 
 


About Damien Quicksilverone of us since 8:25 PM on 12.22.2018


Near the beginning of the millennium, I wrote an opinion column titled "My Twenty-Five Cents" in a short lived zine titled "Classic Gamer Magazine" iirc. I used the pen name "Damien Quicksilver" at the time. I get thoughts about gaming that I feel the urge to write about from time to time, so this is something of a reprisal I suppose. If there is somehow anyone out there who remembers that zine, that would be amazing. It was made with a group of folks I met in rec.games.video.classic on Usenet. If there is somehow anyone out there who remembers what Usenet is, you're old. If you don't know what Usenet was, it was basically the cretaceous period equivalent of Reddit.
