The only thing I love about my cat is that he refuses to love me.


 
 
 

The lass pick up Dragon's Dogma a bit ago... And so I've been watching it being played for about, I dunno... Say, 90 hours or so... And like, nothing has happened... Is something supposed to happen in that game?

 
 
 

#Bump8 ($240 to go for my car!) Made a less cluttered looking stab at this, as after fender bender, I am in a pickle. I'm grateful for all the help so far, but fuck the rest of the goals of this. I need help to get my car running. Link inside comments.


 
 
 

5 more hours and I have two weeks off. Yay!

 
 
 

Well, my new Native Instruments Maschine MK3 just arrived and the package is now sitting here next to me, mocking me, for my colleagues got collectively sick and I have to work 9 am to 11 pm <.<

 
 
 

Well. File this under “I completely forgot I ordered that.”.


 
 
 
 

Never thought I'd use the Xbox One's HDMI input for satellite stuff, but low and behold I actually have a perfect use for it with the Open Source Scan Converter to upscale everything to 1080p and stabilize it with any capture card. More in comments.

 
 
 

Weekly Update, here are the games I am currently playing. Those between bracket I am going to review when completed: -[Shining Force III: SC2 (Saturn)] -[Mega Man ZX (DS)] -Legend of Zelda: BotW (Switch) -SteamWorld Dig 2 (Switch) -Dishonored 2 (PS4)

 
 
 

Well, it finally happened. I couldn't update a game because my PS4 had insufficient space. It's a 2TB drive! Game are way too big now, man...

 
 
 

So I double dipped on Transistor a few months ago for the Switch version. I have played most (probably 3/4 of the game) on the PS4, but when I heard it was coming to the Switch, I thought "hell yeah". I finally tried the Switch version, and it's perfect!


 
 
 

After a small hiatis due to just hecticness followed by sickness, Ring Fit Adventure is finally complete! ...Well the main story at least. Feeling healthier than I have in a long time, not gonna stop now!


 
 
 

Im working on something ;)


 
 
 

My friend made a Dead by Daylight video that made me remember: when my friend gets drunk it gets hilarious.



 
 
 

Having now played through Oxenfree three times in a row I suspect there's one last secret in there that the internet still hasn't discovered yet, a secret ending or something.

 
 
 
 

Not gonna take four months between blogs this time! Time to relive C&C Generals in all of its 2003 glory! TL;DR: It was fun back then, and it's still fun in 2020. Next stop: Tiberian Wars!

 
 
 

Stream was fun and a success! Thanks to all who came out tonite!


 
 
 

Hello DTOID! i spent another quality couple of months on the middle of nowhere, but this time i took my laptop. And while i dont have internet over there, i could game on it. And y'know? i still can't like Hollow Knight... but i think i got it now.


 
 
 

sketched Nero today, pretty tired, think moving house has caught up with me haha.


 
 
 

Happy weekend hunting folks!


 
 
 

So legit on PS4 my Siege data is corrupted. Like the game starts up, hits the splash screen then boots me out with an error message. Tried to reinstall a few times, no dice. Google no help. Anyone know? 🤷🏻‍♂️

 
 
 

Hoo boy, those Japanese-only-until-yesterday Kunio games are HARD. At least for me. Took me like 11 tries just to get past the first stage in Nekketsu Koha Kunio-kun.
