Weird West arrived from Special Reserve Games yesterday. Ordered 3/31/22, game released in April, physical expected in August. And here we are. It went on sale twice in that time. Dunno if I’ll order these limited physical copies again. Pics in comments


My PS+ is about to expire, and I’m kicking myself for not renewing during Black Friday. Any tips on places that run good deals?


Someone with more SRPG cred than me, please sell me on Tactics Ogre Reborn. I like Triangle Strategy (haven't finished it yet), and while I respect FFT, it's dense as hell. Should I take another swing with Reborn? It looks cool as hell. Thoughts?


Y'all thought this RADNESS would END? (Next DLC for Olli Olli World in early November, in case the video doesn't work.)



Finally managed to score a PS5! The Horizon bundle was everywhere this past week. Related: would anyone be interested in buying a cheap digital copy of Horizon Forbidden West? I have no intention of playing it and the code works for both PS4 and PS5. LMK.


Cruising through Live-A-Live and really digging it. Great remake, but not the best RPG. Happy that it’s short. Might even replay it for secrets. Anyway, here’s the RG Unicorn next to the Beyond Global RX-78-2. Wish me luck on Chapter 2 of my dissertat


Fun fact: Olli Olli World has cross-platform leaderboards. Funner fact: I got legitimately nervous at having to go up against myself. (1st place is my PS4 account; 3rd is my Switch.) Stay rad, friends. <3


The Zelda: OoT TAS Beta Showcase at SGDQ2022 somehow became one of the most touching, moving moments in my entire life of gaming. I’m so glad I got to see that. #HereTogether


Lol which one of you is j%20? From GDQ stream this evening.


Summer Game Fest more like Horror Game Set In Space Fest.


My favorite thing about this is that it’s real and in my hands.


I’m so happy right now. (And this free theme is so lovely. <3)


Is anyone looking into Weird West? I'm interested in it, but I'm waiting on some reviews.


Not game-related news, but Cormac McCarthy is finally releasing The Passenger, his first new novel since The Road in 2006, this October. I spent my entire postsecondary career studying his work and now I get to see this right at the end of my studies.


JSRF, one of my favorite games of all time, is 20 years old today (2/22/02; US release was 2/26/02). This game defined my teenage years, and through it, I met one of my best friends. I’m happy to see games like Bomb Rush Cyberfunk carry this legacy on.


Hey dtoid, it's my birthday today. Let's celebrate by posting fanart--yours or others (with credit if you have it)--of some of your favorite characters. Here's Nicole-458 from DOA4, by Gregory Stacker. No NFTs.


Finished the RG QAN[T]. He wasn’t as troublesome as I feared, though there were a couple spots where pieces suddenly snapped in. (Not as bad as Astray Red’s ankles.) It was nice to do another model. Won’t do another until summer. More pics in commen


Dude at GameStop said, “I remember you! I set one aside in case you made it today.” Let’s. Fucking. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!




This has been in my backlog since early June. All panel lining done. Episodes of Critical Role on in the background. Let’s go, Barbatos.


Just finished my prospectus hearing. I'm now a PhD candidate and ABD. While that's fun in itself, it's a fucking milestone because 23-year-old impostor-syndrome Shibb would never have imagined he'd get this far. Love y'all, dtoid. Post Samus fanart. <3


I just wrote a blog post. It felt a bit weird, my trying to qualify this state of "I want to play something but I don't want to feel like I'm wasting my life playing something I won't love". I'm either getting old or thinking too much. Or both. <3


Gather ye gamepads while ye may.

I’ve been in a bit of a new game rut lately—I want to play something new, but I want to find just the right game to play.  This is a concern we’ve all had: starting up that fresh new experience, instantly meshin...


Finally submitted the 5th draft of my Prospectus. Should be ready to defend soon. Until then, I make irresponsible decisions.


Some friends who are new to the Souls series wanted to co-op DS3 with me, but the 100% invasion rate is turning them right off. The co-op is basically a guaranteed PVP fight. Sucks that we can’t just turn invasions off.
