I just had an interview with one of my favorite tech companies - well known in the gaming space, but not a gaming related position. Still, it went well and I'm super excited!


I hate hyperbole, but good lord this is the worst E3 in recent memory for sure. There has been absolutely nothing that has me salivating to play. I expect nothing from Nintendo tomorrow, and will still probably be disappointed.


OMG No Man's Sky looks amazing (and runs smooth as butter) with DLSS and the new graphics overhaul.


The death of Kentaro Miura has really soured my day. I've been following Berserk for damn near 25 years now. That's pretty much all of my adult life, going back to high school.


We bought my wife the original Sims Complete Collection for Mother's Day. She's remarked a couple of times over the years how she preferred the original game to all the sequels, but it's been a long time since we've seen the disks. She was VERY happy.


I have to say, Geforce Now is the best way to play Cyberpunk on PC. I have an AMD RX 580, and it does all right, but GFN looks better with the nVidia specific options, and with everything maxed I'm playing at 45FPS. Minimal jitter/latency as well.


Welcome to gaming in 2020 where you preload a couple days before release so you can download a 60GB day 1 patch.


Oh man I've drank a lot of whiskey tonight. I should probably cancel my work meetings for tomorrow.


So seriously, you guys doing okay out there? I'm not at my best right now - the past 7 months have worn on me. And you know what - that's all right. It's okay to not be okay. Take care of yourself as best you can, and know that it will get better.


PS5 and RTX3080 both sold in in minutes. Good thing I wanted neither right now.


Wanted to share my new (non video game related) YouTube channel - Grill Science! https://youtu.be/1QeG%20 I'm a geek who loves grilling, so I think this will be a fun creative avenue!


I waited an extra 5 minutes after the Paper Mario presention for Bakugan?


The last 25% or so of FF7 Remake has been a total chore to play through. I really enjoyed this game at first, but it feels like after the plate dropped, the narrative just fell apart. I still like the game overall, but I'm glad I'm done with it for now.


To all the virtual residents of Sim Cities I've created in the past, played for a month, got bored of, then decided to end by unleashing ALL of the disasters at once, I'm truly sorry. I expect Godzilla to show up any minute now.


I logged into the My Nintendo site for the first time in god knows how long, and this is the what they're peddling these days. You can use coins to "buy" Animal Crossing coupons you can print for your mom. FFS.


I've got a Switch and a Switch Lite, so I have two islands on Animal Crossing. Since I can't be online on both Switches at once, I have to get my wife to be my "turnip mule" and go buy/sell my turnips on the other island for me.


Wife: Oh, there's going to be a visible meteor shower tonight. Me: In Animal Crossing?! Wife: No, in "real life." Me: That doesn't get me star fragments, so fuck it.


If you're trying to sharpen techical skills during the quarantine downtime, feel free to hit me in any of my areas of expertise - Linux in general, Kubernetes, Ansible, OpenStack, or anything cloudy. I don't know everyting, but I know people who do.


My wife doesn't think it's funny that I have turned our kids against Tom Nook. My 7 year old son posted a message on the bulletin board saying "Tom Nook is the worst!". And he used the pencil tool to do it instead of typing so it looks like grafitti.


Finished the Switch version of Link's Awakening tonight. It is with both sadness and joy that I say that it has replaced A Link to the Past as my favorite Zelda game ever.


"Bioshock" is trending on Twitter. I ask myself "Oooh, is this BioShock 4? Or maybe a Switch port/collection?" Nope, it's one of the PS Plus free games this month...


Got a Marvel Arcade1up just before Xmas and finally got around to modding it. Put an Optiplex 780 in there running Retroarch, swapped the sticks for Sanwas w/ octagonal gates and Happ buttons. Lots of ROMs, lots of systems, lots of fun!


Playing through Link's Awakening has me hoping Nintendo makes top down Zeldas a regular thing. I love BOTW and Ocarina/TP before them, but there's just something magic about playing the classic style with modern graphics and controls.
