Played a bit of Streets of Rage 2 last night with my Gen Z girlfriend. She asked why there was a cooked turkey in the trash can and what was it for. God I feel old lol


 
 
 

They Bleed Pixels is out on Switch today! I played this years ago on PC and I was always sad that it didn't get the attention it deserved. It's a great, brutal little platformer with an amazing spooky soundtrack. Definitely a great Halloween game.


 
 
 

I just listened to Sterling's new blog on Golden Axed, a prototype that was made in 2013. Just happens... I wrote a blog here on Dtoid in 2013 all about bringing back classic Sega franchises. Kinda wondering if someone from Sega saw it...


 
 
 

My retro battlestation is complete! Not sure what else I'd add, these are the systems I most care about. Just wanted to share :D


 
 
 

I decided to make my girlfriend a PC - the core is older parts I already had, but I got a new kb/mouse & case. She's decorating everything, including the monitor, controller, & case (the sides are off for Sailor Moon painting). Video tour when we're done!


 
 
 

Dtoid is the best gaming community around but I wish there was a little more PC and hardware (PC & console) related coverage. I have to go to places like WCCFTech for that stuff and they aren't nearly as nice and have some alt-right creeps around.

 
 
 

Went through with it, that's a 3700x. Should be great for gaming for a few years. Now for the fun part of installing it all :D


 
 
 

I think I'm going to upgrade my PC so I can build a second PC with the parts left over. I'll put it beside my main PC for my girlfriend & we can either play stuff together or she can play more chill stuff while I play stuff like Cyberpunk this November.

 
 
 

Someone on the other side of the block is having a party so loud I can hear it here. Yeah giant party during a pandemic what a great idea. We're all going to die.

 
 
 

Yaasssss finally here!


 
 
 

I've mostly been doing well with the pandemic since I'm staying in & getting to see my girlfriend a bunch (she's my 1 person I see). But between the boredom & political news & the pandemic it's getting to me. Think I might upgrade my PC as a distraction.

 
 
 

lol this just came up in my Facebook memories. We're still dating a year later, guess I was nerdy enough for her.


 
 
 

Playing Thunder Force IV & I have to say I'm not sure why people say it's better than III. It's *good*, but not great so far. Lots of slowdown/flicker, weaker ost, weaker level design. Some neat bosses, though... with tons of slowdown. Hope it picks up.


 
 
 

I was going to sell a friend some manga & they offered me an SP instead of cash! Been wanting one for a while since I collect OG GB games & the SP is considered the best way to play them. But now I will be tempted to collect Color & Advance games... oh no


 
 
 

Finally just broke down and ordered a copy of Thunder Force IV. Yeah I can emulate it but I own an actual Genesis and CRT so it feels weird to play it any other way. What I sampled previously didn't seem quite as good as 3, but it was still pretty great.


 
 
 

Hello fellow nerds! Virtual goth night lol


 
 
 

Wonder how many Witcher "fans" complaining about CDPR's rainbow logo remember that Ciri is gay? And boy are they gonna be traumatized by Cyberpunk lmao


 
 
 

Got my import of Parodius for Gameboy! I enjoyed the other Gradius Gameboy games, not sure why the system has so few shmups


 
 
 

My girlfriend made me an e-girl...


 
 
 

It's been years since I've blogged, but I just started writing one about diversity in gaming and the excuses we make for not having diverse protagonists. Yeah, you know, I'm starting with something easy and non-controversial for my first time back...

 
 
 

Playing a little of the Mario 64 PC port. I forgot how infuriating this star was to get. Janky camera, janky controls, and the slightest misstep and you slide all the way back down. I want to scream.


 
 
 

The one good thing getting me through lock down has been getting to spend a lot of time with my girlfriend. I am so freaking lucky, she's an amazing person.


 
 
 

They just added Project Warlock & Forsaken Remastered to Twitch Prime finally! (and a few other games in addition to the initial releases this month) Kinda excited because I wanted both of those.


 
 
 
 

I've picked up an NES & 2600... now I just need a proper SNES & I'm about where I want to be. Kinda running out of space. Bottom two shelves have backs so cable management is a bit messy lol. Now to stop buying crap & catch up on playing games!


 
 


About Jinx 01one of us since 4:26 PM on 11.18.2011

I love gaming, and I have followed the industry and its technology since I was a kid in the 80's. I have gamed primarily on PC since 2000, though I still follow console news and hardware as well.

I worked as a mapper and beta tester for the mod Action Half-Life. I also make custom images for Steam's grid view, those are over on my website.
