New Metal Gear game for Nintendo Switch confirmed


Listening to Chelsea Wolfe and reading about the Eltanin Impact (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eltanin%20). I need this solid combination of doom & gloom to make it thru my workday.


Gamestop is selling The Witcher 3 Complete ED. for $24.95; their used copies are $44.95. Guess which one they sold out of first. Also, Agents of Mayhem is totally worth its $10 price tag.


Guts can't save everyone.


#XmasToid Who loves Xmas music? Why, you do, of course! So here's something to help you get in the mood for this very festive season.


2B is the robot you *want*, but Aloy is the robot killer you *need*.


This the trailer for Peter Jackson's new film called Mortal Engines and it's the most anime-looking live action film trailer I've seen all day.


The Frozen Wilds subtley reminds us that Yellowstone caldera in NA is a giant supetvolcano that will surely plunge much of the world into darkness. Also, I finished TFW expansion over the weekend. It was hella good.


A few quick thoughts on that MHW beta: mounted felinxes are very handy & enjoyable to watch in action. It's very easy to get sidetracked with alt boss-level beasties; open world games should never *ever* have time limits, mission-specific or not.


Link never looked better in this stunning Gerudo ensemble!


Maybe I'm outgrowing video games. New console prices are starting to seem outrageously high to me. Maybe it's my sexy new wife and cute child and all the financial responsibilities that come with that level of adulthood.


Is there a way I can learn this power?


Order something from Amazon today to receive a very warm bonus gift for the holidays this year.


Sitting in my car, playing Phantasy Star Nova, nursing a migraine/sinusitis, waiting to start my workday, hurting your eyes with shitty sentence structure, comma abuse:-P


I had to choose between Monster Hunter Stories & Elex for this month's Illicit Game Purchase That My Fiancee Will Complain About; went with Elex since it reminds me of Two Worlds II. It's clunky, fun & the NPC's are more interesting than the protagonist.


Haven't played much lately outside of No Man's Sky/Elite Dangerous/Fallout 4 due to other commitments & lack of funds to buy anything new. Oh...wtf is a cuphead?


There isn't much that could make me give up gaming. But there are quite a few bad game development practices that could make me stop buying new games. Microtransactions, loot boxes tied to real cash, characters only unlocked as paid DLC are just a few.


Had to make a quick decision between a Destiny Warlock action figure & The Last Jedi Apprentice Rey (they made her look like Ellen Page AFAIC). McFarlane's forgotten how to do proper figure articulation so the Warlock was out. No ab crunch, no buy.

About Moi:

The funkily-spelled term 'ikiryou', per Wiki, 'refers to a spirit that leaves the body of a living person and subsequently haunts other people or places, sometimes across great distances'. Now replace the word "haunts" with "annoys". I like more game types than I can think to post here, which makes for an awful backlog of epic proportions. The picture below is a poorly 'shopped representation of me holding my backlog list.

I've been gaming since Defender was only available in an arcade. The first video game I can remember playing (non-arcade) was a Defender clone on some sort of godawful Tandy computer. It could've been a Trash-80, I'm unsure since it was middle school. Then my parental units bought me several LED/LCD-based handheld/tabletop games (Pac-Man and Zaxxon) which were totally not actual video games.

Around the same time I discovered goth/heavy metal/thrash/new wave music, which I thought my parents considered a loud tool of Satan(!). So I naturally consumed it like tasty unrefined Red Lyrium and turned into a frothy-mouthed red demon or something.

I am currently demoniacally possessed by an Xbox, PS2, PS3, Xbox360, a PSP(slim, CFW 6.61), a pearl-white DS Slim, a Vita, and the New 3DS XL...and an ungodly backlog which I've *totally never mentioned before* in this profile.
