I recently subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, and I fucking LOVE IT. I'm currently reading Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man and Uncanny X-men starting from the very beginning. I can't wait to get to Claremont's run on X-Men. *squeel!*

 
 
 

Six episodes in and I still can't figure out if I actually like Black Mirror.

 
 
 

The Best Games I Played in 2017

As 2017 mercifully comes to a close, I thought I'd take a few minutes to reflect on some of my favorite gaming experiences I've had this year. Note this is best games I PLAYED this year - not necessarily games that released in 2017. Hi...

 
 
 
 
 
 

A couple of weeks ago, I quickposted about having to find a new home for our dog, and how it destroyed me inside. Fortunately, he was adopted to a new family on Christmas eve, and his new family reached out to us (found my wife's email in some paperwork)

 
 
 

This has been a pretty crappy week. Our dog bit my 4 year old on Monday - not bad, but scared us as he was only an inch from his throat - and we've made the difficult decision to send him to foster home tomorrow to ultimately find a new home for him.

 
 
 

I REALLY hope this Bandai Namco event on the 15th reveals a new non-mobile Katamari game.

 
 
 

This illustrated letter to Iwata has sent my feels into critical overload. https://imgur.com/gallery/B3oQw

 
 
 

I'm not sure what's more disturbing - Mario mounting and riding Yoshi, a sentient creature, as if he's some simple beast of burden or using his ghost hat to possess him and outright take control of his body.

Overstuffed: Addicted to game sales

[Let he who doesn't have a massive, irritating fucking backlog cast the first stone! Let jaygerbomb regale you with a tale on this Thanksgiving Day of how a simple act of buying games on clearance led him to a lifelong struggle of resisting...

 
 
 

If you're in the US, please take a few minutes to call/write your representatives about Net Neutrality. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, THIS AFFECTS YOU. https://www.battleforthenet.com/

 
 
 

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the winner of the internet: DOOM gameplay with Jump Up, Superstar as the soundtrack.



 
 
 

I got new entries in my 3 of my favorite Nintendo franchises this year (asterisk beside Samus Returns, but new enough for me) and they've all been fantastic. As much as they piss me off sometimes, no one makes games like Nintendo. No one.

 
 
 

I could go try to track down a SNES Classic at local brick & mortar stores or go for a run. I think running will be better for my physical and mental health, so that's what I'm gonna do.

 
 
 

NBA 2K18 is nice to have on the Switch. I don't even like basketball that much, but it made for some fun multiplayer action during lunch at work today.

 
 
 

Started playing Samus Returns on 3DS today. Still excited for Prime 4, but now I really want a new 2(.5)D Metroid badly.

 
 
 

Too many games coming for Switch I want! Odyssey, FE Warriors, DOOM, WWE 2K18, Xenoblade, maybe Skyrim again? And that's just this year. Wolfenstein, Octopath, and Kirby next year. HYPE AF.

 
 
 

*Looks up YouTube video of how to express dog's anal glands* Yeah, no - he's going to the vet for that.

 
 
 

My four year old just came up to me and said "I am the toy man! No one else is allowed to have toys but me! Get out of here with my toys!". Not sure where he picked up that Rick & Morty variation...

 
 
 

No games for me tonight - Voltron: Legendary Defender season 3 dropped today!

 
 
 

I wish game collections had ESRB rating for each individual game sometimes, or internal parental locks. Just got Namco Museum for Switch, and I can only imagine the shitstorm I'll hear if my wife catches our 4 and 6 year olds playing Splatterhouse.

 
 
 

So the SNES classic went up for pre-order at after I'm in bed for the night last night. This is such an irritating trend with Nintendo products.

 
 
 

I think I'd go for a Game of Thrones musou game if it ever happened. The only problem is so many of the key players never set foot on a battlefield. Still, I think they could get a couple dozen playable characters out of that property easily.

 
 
 

I've been playing video games for over 35 years now, and there is NOTHING more satisfying to me than beating a Kid Cobra player with two Slamanders using Master Mummy in ranked mode in ARMS.
