I have come to the conclusion that Kirby is a sadist. Why? Look at him and his mind-controlled compatriots, dancing with joy at the suffering that they have wrought. What cruel and terrible creatures they are.


I managed to get a good photo of one of my cats rolling around in leaves. He’s a fine cat when he’s not satiating his rampant bloodlust.


Picked this up while I was out shopping today. As soon as I finished it, I felt it necessary to order in the second currently-localised volume. It's definitely worthy of recommendation, albeit only if you're comfortable with some fucked up imagery.


I got this big lump of dog a new toy while I was out shopping today. She quite clearly approves of such a gift, given her expression here.


Spending the weekend at my dad's place. He may have just handed me this rather nice collection of movies and TV shows as an early birthday present. I approve. Very much so.


Just checked out the demo for the new Kirby game. It's pretty much exactly as you'd expect; more classic 2D Kirby. This is to say that it's absolutely goddamn adorable, and I kind of love it. Maybe I just have a soft spot for cute things, no?


For no reason, here's a photo of one of my cats that I took while I was getting up to get a drink last night. He's a great cat, if a little ridiculous.


It’s been a long and exhausting week. Spent much of it up in Rockhampton for my uncle’s funeral, which was pretty tiring and stressful. But at least tonight was great. Got a chance to see Venom live.


Oh my gods, the onslaught of spam is still ongoing. The only reason Qtoid's still readable is because of the tireless work of Dtoid's fantastic Community Managers. You should give them all hugs and cake! Especially Panda. Maybe even Torch.


So, I've been spending the past little while manually sifting through the CBlog/QPost scheduler in order to nuke as many spam posts and accounts as I possibly can before they go live. Gif related. Illya Punch!


Finally got around to helping dad set up the Wii that I got him for Christmas. He’s already filled with a strange sense of childish joy that you rarely see in him. He used to have a Wii when it launched, but he had to sell it. He clearly missed it.


Random shower thought: I want to play an anime dating sim where every character is voice acted by James Earl Jones. Especially the obligatory smug loli character.


It's hot, and I had to fight off a particularly large and possibly-murderous spider that was running rampant in my bedroom. Send help.


Did you know that today marks the birthday of Destructoid's most beloved bear-like mascot character, Robo Panda Z? You should all wish her a happy birthday! You should also give her cake, for I'm sure she'd appreciate it. Especially if it's choc mint.


You know, after reading some more about this Labo thing, I honestly think it’s a damn cool idea. My four year old nice would absolutely adore something like that! I’m sure she’d customise the hell out of it with stickers and crayons and such, ha!


This just showed up in the mail today! Anime of the year material, no?


Just for a nostalgia kick, I started playing on RuneScape's 'Oldschool' servers. I immediately began cutting down trees to amass enough income to fuel my love of cosmetic gear. I've yet to level anything else up, but at least I've now got a fine pimp hat!


Well, I suppose it's up to me to start off the first #ArbitraryMetalTuesday for 2018 the right way. Have a track from Portal's upcoming album. Portal is easily one of the harshest and most... unique... bands in my library, but I'm pretty excited for ION.


This just arrived today. It's... it's truly special.


While I’m waiting for horrifically awkward family-related Christmas stuff to happen, I’ve just been laying on the couch watching Berserk with a beer and a cat. This is preferable. Berserk, beer, cats, and air-conditioning is my ideal Christmas.


Well, that's a little disheartening. I tried to boot up NieR: Automata, but was immediately greeted with a message saying that my DLC content wasn't found, despite it being on my PS4 HDD. So I reinstalled the DLC. No dice. Reinstalling the full game now.


I know that it’s fun to tease Torchman, but he really is a fine fellow. I mean, he may like puppies! It’s not entirely confirmed yet, but it’s a possibility! For that reason, #TorchmanAppreciationMinute should be a thing. Because he may like puppies


For this #ArbitraryMetalTuesday, I shall share some Mayhem. I'm actually going out to see these guys play De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas (probably their best album) in its entirety next month! Then two days after that, a Prog Rock/Metal festival. Ha!
