Someone like me, who you might recognize as a wordy person, is not a lover of grammar. Grammar is the science of language and uncomfortable neighbor of art -- a mess in the chaos.


Sensors indicate a larger than expected quotient of wienerage in the last episode of Chernobyl. Satisfaction levels dangerously high.


Started playing Sundered, a metroidvania that I think is easily lost in the shuffle. But it does some very good things with conventions of the genre, it even does procedural generation in an interesting way.


The Chernobyl miniseries continues to be a profoundly good piece of work.


Comic Book Ads: "Lobo" issue 2 (1994)

Oh hey, good morning! We're back with some more old comic book ads to take a lookie-loo at, so I sure hope you enjoy this trip down advertisement lane. This one is from the second issue of Lobo, a DC character of very 1990's repute tha...


Since everyone else is doing it, my spoilies in the comments:


Picked up Hyper Light Drifter again after having beaten it a while back only to notice "New Game Alt" mode with a completely different character that doesn't use a sword. Is this new? Maybe I just glossed over it because I started an NG+ file before.


A friend texted this to me. What a manipulative, shitty piece of propaganda. This coming from an employer says a lot.


What if an indie dev makes a spiritual successor to Jet Force Gemini? Like a low-poly game with sharper visuals and modern controls. That would make me a happy boy.


Comic Book ad blog number three has been posted. Do please enjoy.


Comic Book Ads: "Spider-Man" issue 375 (March 1993)

[Direct link if images aren't loading] Once again, good morning to you! For my third entry into what has become a daily blog series on this site I present more comic book ads for us all to enjoy. The cover will be our normal starting p...


The next entry in my new blog series showcasing comic book ads has been posted (or it will be when the Dtoid site catches up). If anyone still can't see the images, let me know in that comments to the blog and I'll put them in there... again. sigh


I'm not even sorry about it, my brain is naturally hilarious. In a dream I was reading something and it described someone's legs as "butt arms". In the dream I was laughing. I'm still laughing at this.


Been kicking this idea around for years. I want to upload pics of old comic book ads from the many I have lying around that were mine and my brothers spanning the late 80s to the early 2000s. Look for it in the cblogs, one issue's ads at a time.


This video is part of a very good trend of people speaking out about working conditions in game development and is part of the increased unionization talk for US labor overall. Good stuff.


Am I just noticing it more, or are people saying "hell yeah" more often than they used to lately?


Dang, I didn't know Jim, Jonathan and Conrad had started a new podcast series. It's exactly what you're imagining it is.


I don't think I'll understand why people like first person melee combat.


I saw Endgame two nights ago... and then I this week's episode of Game of Throne.


I've always said Fromsoft shouldn't just make sequels, but if they did for Sekiro it should be subtitled Shadows Die Thrice, thank you, thank you, yes thank you.


So the shitty crab ending of that Melee tournament has resulted in Hungrybox getting completely unloaded on with subs and donations on Twitch as a goal to see him eat some crab on stream.


A Melee tournament ended with the winner getting something thrown at him because he wasn't the crowd favorite. I will defend this game's competitive play and its community all day, I'll also own when this shit happens. I'm legit furious.

Hello, curious browser. I've been a reader of Dtoid for several years now and continue to enjoy the unique sense of community around these parts. I think I'll stick around, if ya don't mind.
