Good news: got another job interview in about an hour, and I'm really hopefull to get the hell away from this Covid timebomb office. Bad news: a coworker whose desk is near mine called sick today cause he has Covid symptoms, hooray!


Thanks Fanatical! I can't actually install Nocturne for 11 days, but hey, that sense of anticipation is pretty sweet! In the mean time, I have a minecart to survive and an Ashley to rescue...again...


Wait what for the last few bits of Resident Evil Village you use a time machine and go through bits of Resi 1-7. That's so bizzare but kinda cool. Spoilerz I guess sorry Bateman but you could just forget how to read to avoid the spoilers so eh.


"Furries are zoophile blackface" is the funniest thing I will hear today.


I know I'm probably the only one who cares, but I rather like the dub voices in Strive! They're pretty fitting, in my opinion.


Oh, don't mind me, just downloading 100GB of Mass Effect.


Listen here Mr Billy-Bob GamesIndustry, I will not be buying previous generations games for £70. So you stop that. You stop that now.


Got my 5G antenna injected. The range is good, but I'm going back in September for a speed boost.


Everytime I watch Castlevania I'm re-reminded that Alucard is an angsty emo teen in a mans body. And it's great everytime. Anyway halfway through, and looking forward to seeing that last half!


Castlevania Anniversary Collection is up on Limited Run Games for Switch and PS4. Grabbed this version.


Guilty Gear Beta quick thoughts -- I've already forgotten how Ramlethal works, I-No's really fun!


If you ever wondered what I do for half of my working day, here you go :P


What a weird world.


Random Thoughts While Pooping Hollywood Edition: I would like to see a G.I. Joe 3 movie where it's the Joes VS COBRA VS Baronness and Destro's new third faction that wants to eliminate them both.


Speaking of Metal Gear, they really need to remaster the best game in the series.


I ended up liking MGS4 more than I thought I would. Its self-indulgant cutscenes makes it an interesting companion piece to V. The two games provide different experiences, but they both exemplify the negative effects of external forces on development.


Son of a bitch I'm in.


Wasn't hugely fond of her last album, but Annie Clark did a goodin' here.


So I haven’t beaten Village yet (just got to the Factory), but so far it has the same issue I had with 7. It opens with a strong, classically designed section with exploration and locked doors, but then every section after is basically linear. More belo


Everyone at work: Working. My brain at work:


Battle of the Gods (2021) - Final song for my last album. I am resting for now, but will start work on my 50th album based on this Blog Post. Comment your short story in that post ^^ Thanks.


Hey folks, Friday already. Dunno about you but I'm soopa tired. I hope that y'all have a happy and fruitful weekend - literally a weekend full of fruit. Look after yourselves and be good to those near you. We are but one people. Love y'all x

PS REVIEWS: Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix
