If I had a stand, I'd want it to be a mosquito that gives/takes electricity to/from sources. Call it System of a Down.


Just now catching up on weekend stuff. Great job with the downpour of blogs over the weekend, gang! Keep that up.


A huge THANKS to the Dtoiders that played MK8 Deluxe with me this weekend! You guys rock!


I don't suppose anyone would be up for trying Paladins out and partying up? I love the game but I'm having that time again where every game is awful cause people refuse to do teamwork, the basic fundamental component the game was designed around.


I was going to make a post about my experience yesterday, but it ended up being way too long to cram in as a comment in a QPost. Is it okay if I post it as a blog, considering it's not video game related?


Hey guys, I'm making a list of games I'm going to be getting over the next few weeks. and I really want to play a sci fi game that's very Star Trek like. I was thinking maybe Mass Effect since I've never played it. Any other recommendations for others?


So about a week ago after buying the LE Transistor vinyl, I noticed Supergiant provides a link where you can ask them stuff. I asked if they had plans for Bastion on vinyl and was told there were no plans, but to not rule it out for the future(Cont.below)


All this Twin Peaks talk is making me feel soooo old, but it's wonderful to see it return. I saw a billboard with Laura Palmer's prom photo on the other day. Genuinely got this weird daze of emotion, like nostalgia mixed with melancholy and excitement.


Well that's enough ranked for me. The Season ends next week and you know what? I'm cool with where I am again. I've placed gold at the end of every season. Good luck to any of you trying to place higher!


4 total hours sleep this weekend....going to be a long Monday


I think I've been playing BotW a bit too much. The urge jump over the edge and hang-glide into town or find the secret at the top of the mountain is strong. (Sardegna, Italy. Visit it,amazing trip)


I'm loving all this black space at the top of the page. Like staring up at a night sky. Really gives a guy some time to pause and think.


A team is remaking an old mostly in europe computer that will run all it's old 8-bit software. Someone is kickstartering "ZX Spectrum Next" 11 hours to go, do I drop the money for that authentic and more accurate feel or just continue the emulation. hrmm


I hope I'm not the only one giggling for the wrong reasons, whenever the "Phan-site" is mentioned in Persona 5.


Um, is this a spam post? I can't tell...


Movers will be here in an hour! We leave early tomorrow morning!
