Man its weird I visited my old highschool's website, and half the images of 'students' are stock photos, and the other half are all kids from my class... I graduated quite a while ago... Why hasn't this been updated?

 
 
 

Yes! I fixed the display issues I was having with Windows 98 SE in Virtual Box. Now I can play my old PC games again!

 
 
 

I just got back from Last Jedi! Spoilers in the comments.

 
 
 

SF V AE will have massive changes to the way you earn Fight Money. Story modes, trials, survival, etc... will still give you exp so you still earn FM through them but there are no extra payouts. Extra battle mode gives you the chance to earn new costumes.

 
 
 
 

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Current status:


 
 
 

In today's good news category, Funimation will be airing a simuldub of Trigger's Darling in the FRANXX! Also, Brawlout is coming to Switch next week which is news to me!

 
 
 

Grim Reaper only for a year, no invisibility, and I can't phase through walls or other random crap? What a ripoff!



 
 
 

CJ’s article reminded me to go tweet a courteous #fuckyou @EA. Thanks, buddy!

 
 
 

Oh man, you know those days where you just wind up exhausted? But its the kind of exhaustion of slaughtering your enemies, fulfilling your dreams, and securing your kingdoms? I've got that.

 
 
 

Think I've got my top 10 and bottom 10 of the year planned. Just need to double check by actually turning on my PS4 and should be good to write up. Although will have to be in a 2 part fashion judging by past years.

 
 
 
 
 

Just reached the end of chapter 9 in Xenoblade. All I can say without spoiling things is WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.

 
 
 

This is hard to watch. DrDisRespect admits to being unfaithful.



 
 
 

Sorry for the late #GamingFactOfTheDay. Today's my mom's birthday, so I couldn't do today's illustration until later.


 
 
 

Current mood thanks to Captain Johns Toffee Trunk. Drunk.



 
 
 

Back from a Star Wars double feature. Was a fantastic time! I hadn't rewatched TFA, so that was pretty good! But that last Jedi WHOOOO man what a movie. I can see it being divisive, but man I loved it. Was a great time.

 
 
 

So this happened to me while I was playing with GM yesterday. All my hours of playing and I'm still experiencing new stuff. Even got attacked by Void Vor for the first time today!



 
 
 

Finishing up my last, most frustrating final. Current status:


 
 
 

Well the backlight to my tv went out. I guess this is a sign to save up for a newer one. Goodnight sweet prince, its been a great 3 years. I guess it's handheld for my switch from now on.

 
 
 

In a lot of ways, Monster Hunter is reminding me of Souls games. Encountering something new is almost always exciting and dangerous. But with time and patience, you gain an almost intimate familiarity. Very satisfying.

 
 
 

After DOA5 Last Round Top 8 finishes at NEC 18, there will be a surprise announcement by Team Ninja.

A Man-at-arms: Favorite changes to Monster Hunter: World's weapons
