Good game looks good! Went live on Kickstarter today, and it honestly may be the first game I back in years (maybe I'm feeling thrifty). Quite into any game where the world is open and I can just go do mundane stuff.



 
 
 
 
 

Finished the Snyder Cut and then this was literally on TV as I switched out to turn it off, as if the universe were trying to balance the extraordinarily bitter karma it had just dealt me for the past four hours.



 
 
 
 
 

There’s a game I learned of recently that’s just about making and serving curry at an Ichibanya and... I feel like I really want it.


 
 
 

Sephonie is the new game from Anodyne's developers (Melos Han-Tani and Marina Kittaka) and I'm of course already excited. I spy at least one instance of fungal overgrowth and it looks gorgeous.



 
 
 

Without question one of THE funniest sound effects in Video Game History.



 
 
 
 

Oh, to be a plump green caterpillar inching along. This looks great! Maybe a little stiff in the actual platforming, but, like, just look at this thing.



 
 
 
 

Final bump, thanks to some dude's uploaded saves I... "beat" the final boss. Live-A-Live is amazing.


 
 
 
 
 
 

Made a little card for my brother’s birthday the other day.


 
 
 

Enjoying DMC5 in several ways! One of which is definitely NOT V! Am I smoking crack or his style of play just terrible?? Literally just now playing as Dante for the first time; why couldn't he be the ENTIRE game!


 
 
 

PB&JPSA: Minute of Islands has looked great for awhile now, and has a date! March 18th! Everywhere! Play it with you hands!



 
 
 

That is a fine watering can. May I ask how much you paid for it?


 
 
 

Started Japanese lessons yesterday, and a lifetime of samurai/yakuza films and games defining my existence compels me to over-dramatize each word.


 
 
 

About to step out for groceries and am channeling the 1972 heist movie extra who gets shotgunned in the stomach. Le sigh.


 
 
 

PSA! Anodyne 2: Return to Dust (or, One of the Best Games of the Past Decade) hits consoles February 18th! This game is AMAZING! Buy it! Eat it!



 
 
 

I think about this almost every day, and today, well, I guess a little more than usual. Blessing your Qtoid feed.



 
 
 

So I've played a bit of this again over the past few days and hoo boy, Nintendo is MISSING OUT by not reviving this. For me it's mostly the characters and world, but the racing itself is so unique; there's an appeal other racing games don't have.


 
 
 

I don’t know if I’m a genius, but yogurt on toast is really good. Also banana is King of Fruits; we aren't accepting alternatives at this time.

Sam. Sir Shenanigans. Not your daddy's kind of stupid. Can't decide what's for dinner. Big fan of dolly shots in movies, Japanese sweet potatoes, Hellboy, Indian food, God Hand, and Herman Melville. A pig's gotta fly.
