I have not been having fun with games for some time now. Often considering leaving the hobby. But today I found my new jam so fuck all that.



 
 
 
 

So I follow a couple of indie game shops on facebook and the one I used to live close to is getting some cool stuff in! A bunch of amiibo and a few toy/marvel comic packs...they look like things I had to leave down south...

 
 
 

My adapter finally came in! My 2600 joystick works but my TAC2 is acting funk so it probably needs a clean. I also though the TAC2 would be smaller for some reason but its a big as an xbox control! Yup, ill be marathoning pitfall and berzerk for a bit :P




 
 
 

Holy shit! They did it. They fuckin did it. Infinity War is a great time.

 
 
 

Not looking for any condolences, but I needlessly lost someone today. There is always someone to talk to, and life can always offer something better, or at the very least, different. If you need help, just ask, if you know someone who might, check on them

 
 
 
 

I did it both ways. I like the green best! What ya think?


 
 
 

BTW for those who didn't know Anita Sarkeesian is planing a come back to video games.

 
 
 

Anyone still hoping against hope that there is any line the GOP won't cross for Trump need only look at "principled libertarian" Rand Paull caving after weeks of very public "principled" opposition. It's terrifying.

 
 
 

First up for my fallout collection going into my shop now.


 
 
 

My Band of Bloggers cblog is live! This month I've played the most draconic game ever made: Spore. Link in the comments because I'm dumb and don't know how to put links on qposts. [bump + included a link to my sporepedia profile]


 
 
 

One of my all time, favorite indie games launched on Switch today: Sky Rogue. If you dig Ace Combat, check it out. Plays great, even the optional motion controls! Also on Steam, sans motion.


 
 
 

This is absolutely stunning. The weird part is it smells strange. It seems to be the ink on the box because the good stuff doesn't smell. Small potatoes really. The art is ridiculously great.


 
 
 

Does anyone remember anything from A Link Between Worlds?

 
 
 

Ah what a good day. Super Robot Wars X is out, and my review of Super Robot Wars V is on the front page. Good times.

 
 
 

It's #thrashmetalthursday! Here's a lesser known classic thrashterpiece. I was five years old when this released in 1989!



 
 
 

I need opinions. Words in yellow? Keep it all white? Or ????


 
 
 

So I beat God of War. Still got some side stuff to clean up, all in good time. Quite the game it is. Looking forward to the rest of this new trilogy. Going to take a few days away from games and then get back to finishing Blue Dragon.

 
 
 

Looks like a Switch port of The Long Dark is in the works. I've played it an insane amount on PC. If you want a chill, beautiful survival game with no zombies or other players it's pretty great.


 
 
 
 
 
 

Busy trying to hype my shit on Twitter and Instagram. All in a day's work...lol
