I used to wear this pocket watch before the clasp broke. I needed it for an old job that didn't allow cell phones and I still refuse to wear anything on my wrists.

Honestly, part of the fun of my wordtoid posts is cramming in all relevant top-level info into 255 characters without relying on informal abbreviations. It might secretly be my favorite part of them.


{Wordtoid} Fast means both Quick and To Abstain From Food (e.g. Breakfast), but the root is the same: To Harden. This is easily seen in the word Fasten. Quick is derived on the notion of "running hard", the food sense comes from "hardening yourself".


What movie quotes do you say either out loud or in your head when certain things happen?




All of the recent (and very good) Metroidvanias haven't given a sense of fatigue for Bloodstained for anyone,I guess? Feels like that would be true for me, on some level.


For what it's worth (and this isn't a dig), but I missed this and others pointed out that Banjo-Kazooie's moveset is modeled off of Duck Hunt's. Meaning several of their normals (A moves) are identical or only slightly modified in terms of their animation

Just wrapped up a fairly lengthy Cblog post analyzing the Smash Ultimate trailer for both Hero and Banjo-Kazooie and their movesets. It's only a long scroll because of all the images I posted, I promise.


In case people didn't catch it, the DQ Hero is a semi clone of Link.


Oh, I see it's Disable Loading Images Friday


The Stadia stuff is priced too good. This stuff is going to fly, despite the bad infrastructure in the US. Also, "Stadia Base" sounds like the first thing to get dropped later on. It's an onboarding level of service for skeptics. It won't last.


World charting video game series only takes 21 years and no alternative to finally spend a lot of money on production values.


I hadn't realized until now that FF7 is full of several insipid, inscrutable minigames. I must have spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to march in that fucking line. Cool.


The results of the last Melee tournament... oh baby jeebus.


An original assumption on the function of the brain was as an organ to help cool the blood. I love that kind of stuff.


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...
