I miss Weekend Destructainment. Whatever that segment was called.



 
 
 
 

We've gotten to the weekend once again! And for some of you, it's a three-dayer. Wel Jel. I hope that you all have a great weekend, packed out with some fun, some rest, some friends, and some chainsaw ice sculpture. Be safe, and have a wicked one. Luv U x


 
 
 
 

The more I play Dragon Quest X, the more I think its more akin to DQIX and that's a good thing. I believe if they should make another local wireless multiplayer DQ. Perhaps in DQ10 Offline version??? I'm just saying. That'd be a huge selling point.

 
 
 

Weekly Update, here are the games I am currently playing. I am going to review those within brackets once completed: -[Valkyrie Profile (PS1)] -Valkyria Chronicles 4 (Switch) -Guacamelee! 2 (Switch) -Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PS4)

 
 
 

So there's a Batman-themed Cars knock off and a Sesame Street mecha series...okay.


 
 
 

Caught the moms watching a movie called The Minion starring Dolph Lundgren. Walked in on an hilariously bad CG statue turning to the leading lady to say "Let your anger flow through you... bitch!" and it was the funniest thing. No YT clip, unfortunately.


 
 
 

Just Torch, Renaud, and myself enjoying a little weekend Monster Hunter.


 
 
 
 

A catchy pop-punk song for the summer. Gives off early 2000s vibe to me for some reason 🤷‍♂️. #musictoid | blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly - gfy



 
 
 

The last TV show you watched is the title of your sex tape. What was it?

 
 
 

The news about what happened in Texas just reached us over here. We've been here before.The next time you see someone blaming gun violence exclusively on video games, show them this:


 
 
 

Getting a real Resident Evil meets Silent Hill vibe from Stranger Things. Season 4 is really gory like wow what the hell.

 
 
 

Elden Ring Log: Did 13,000 damage in one attack against the largest dragon I've ever seen. I also killed a putrid avatar way out of my league, worth 20,000 more runes than the aforementioned dragon. Still really digging this game.

 
 
 

I have imbibed alcohol. To quote a phrase, is good.

 
 
 

Started playing Death’s Door yesterday. I just got to a miniboss that has two infinitely respawning minions that follow you around the arena the whole time and it makes me want to quit forever. Whose idea was this?

 
 
 

I lived through Columbine, Jack Thompson and the demonization gaming. The fact that this was even brought up and then called “Cyber Gaming”, like this was 1991 and my typing teacher is making class watch a video on the World Wide Web is fucking sad.


 
 
 

I forgot it was Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend! This weeks TGIF is up over in the blogs. Queen wrote it for me this week. Come say hi and let us know how your week went along with all your weekend plans!


 
 
 

Again, everything shows up at the same time. Cat didn't want to move, so we compromised. Always wanted to own Zombie Nation, its a crazy NES game where you're a flying, severed samurai head that's saving New York, by destroying it...apparently.


 
 
 

But this is what I really got from ZB today: "TRAILER TRASH, American cheese, fried pickle, chicken fried bacon, cheese curds, ranch dressing"


 
 
 

i always forget how old I am next to these youngin developers. a dkc2 reference must be like a ms pacman reference to these kids


 
 
 

KOTOR2 is coming to Switch! Neat, I absolutely loved the first KOTOR, the sequel I haven't beaten, but from what I played I enjoyed, just not on the level that I did with the first game. Either way, cool addition!



 
 
 

Guess I'm playing Vice City again. The original, not the terrible remake. I haven't played it since it first came out.

 
 
 

Finally, some good Star Wars
