BoB - Shog-Gifted Games

Video games have been a big part of my life for so long that I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have the option to play one. I don’t recall too many holidays or birthdays going by that didn’t involve me getti...


I had a sleepover last night and watched my person play Pokemon Shield on my new TV for most of today. Now it's my turn...


Merry Xmas everyone! I got a new TV and Horizon Zero Dawn so I'll be playing some of that and replaying some other things now that I have a great TV.


Santa is coming. Santa is coming. Thank you for being a fantastic community. He's coming.


Watched Rise of Skywalker last night.


Finally saw my Nintendo Year in Review thing. It was emailed to me!


I was going to do a 2010's retrospective cBlog. Then I was going to do 10. Now I'm going to still do that but they'll be monthly releases, one a month, starting in January. Maybe by next October I'll have played some big 2018 and 2019 games.


Bad: I haven't done any X-Mas shopping aside from DSS Less bad: I should be almost 50% done x-mas shopping after today. Maybe. Hopefully.


I'm calling Opus Magnum. I knocked out all of the main puzzles and a handful of the Journal puzzles. I even played a bunch of Sigmar's Garden. The limited-space puzzles are a bridge too far though. My overall thoughts on OM are in the comments...


The night jobs I applied for rejected me and I've been sick for the last 3 days. On the plus side, I'm not as sick today as I was on Wednesday.


How many years have people been clamoring for a sequel to The Wolf Among Us? I would guess it's been long enough that the original is going to get an HD-Remaster around the same time the sequel launches.


Top 5 most anticipated games for the next decade: Syndicate Redux. Super Mario Generations. Shaq-Fu vs Charles Barkley-Kuan-MMO. Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Part 2. Peter Molyneux's Actual, Real-life home: A VR/AR Experience.


Thinking about it a bit more, I would rather play Dragon Age 2 than Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Sticker Star, or Destiny.


Fable 3, Dragon Age 2, Skyward Sword...off the top of my head, these are the three worst games from this decade. Ride to Hell was hilarious, Mighty No. 9 made me want to beat it, and Siege doesn't actually exist.


My Secret Santa is awesome! Totodile is the best starter, and I loved Final Fantasy Adventure as a kid but I've never actually played Mana 2 or 3. Time to change that! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You <3


I'd like to see if Stick of Truth is one of the games that defined the decade. It's incredibly rare for a licensed game to be good but what's even more rare is for a game to turn censorship into such a hilarious set-piece. #cursdmas?


Halo: Reach PC hot take - Nobody called me a bundle of sticks or a J*ker with a hard R. 7/3.


"It gets better later" applies to JUMP Force because even though I can't do it within 5 minutes, it took less than an hour for me to beat the Hell out of Boruto with Kenshiro, Deku, and Pegasus Seiya.


Shog's November 2019 Gaming Journal

November! It's a time for cold weather, family gatherings, rabid consumerism, and that most beautiful of things: transitioning from pumpkin spice to something different. So, while I was enjoying a sweet coffee with butter toffee creame...


My original plans after work today were to make a character and maybe get a feel for the controls of Outer World's then do some writing. 5 hours later, I'm in space, and Parvati is best girl.


Found this at Best Buy this morning. Happy Black Friday everybody!


My store is selling The Outer Worlds for $35. I think I bought our last one. I can't wait to play it on Sunday afternoon (maybe Saturday)


About Shoggoth2588one of us since 6:55 AM on 06.03.2013

Hello all! I'm Joe, from Maryland! I released five days before Enix launched Dragon Quest 3! I started playing games around the time I was 3, with some very early memories of myself playing Duck Hunt in my Dad's office and Golden Axe in an arcade at what might have been an airport (It was a weird memory). I'm mostly harmless so if you wanna talk to me, send me a message. I'll be around, making horrible puns though not quite as horrible as Gus' is able to do. I'll lurk on the Discord too and if you want to be my friend there, than come at me!
