Thanks to Disney+, I can watch RECESS while I'm at work. Current status:


 
 
 

Id be super down for this, but even if there was a free trial for stadia I don't know if my internet could handle it sooo.



 
 
 

Picked another pupil to teach the ropes of Guild Wars 2. He's 10 years older than me, but he seems genuinely excited to see what the game offers. I got a little nervous at first, but he sounded like a chill guy when I talked to him over Discord.


 
 
 

I love the way they textured the fur between Sonic's eyes to give the illusion that they're connected without actually making it one continuous eye, because that probably would have looked terrible in this style.


 
 
 
 
 

This is your Tuesday now



 
 
 

It's been a long time since I've really touched manga/anime, but man, read through like 158 chapters of Beastars in like 3 nights.

 
 
 
 

Good moody mornin'!



 
 
 

Wow. Just saw that Reddit thread on the issues plaguing Sword and Shield and hoo boy, that is super worrying for the quality of the games: The texture pop-in, no GTS (to promote House) and the lacking Dex. Oh and 'high quality animations.'


 
 
 
 

Cancelled my preorder of Pokemon Sword. I wasn't bothered by dexit or anything, but so much more as come out about the game that is making me decide to wait. I may still get it at some point, but it's officially not a priority.

 
 
 

Ok, guess I justpre-bought Edmund McMillen's new game, because that's what I do whenever he releases new shit *sigh*


 
 
 

Landed a contract to coach English to Ubisoft!!! I'm super happy! Surprisingly, I didn't need to scale a tower to reach their offices. Pic unrelated.


 
 
 

I think Death Stranding is the result of Hideo Kojima hearing the term "walking simulator" for the first time. He did not understand the negative connotation of the term because no one presented him with an hour and a half cinematic about it.

 
 
 

I got a Brooks Ps3/Ps4 to ps2 super converter today cause I also bought cvs2 and I'm disappointed that my Mayflash arcade fighting stick F300 doesn't work with it despite looking online for solutions. My Hori Fighting Commander works wonders though!

 
 
 

Hey guys it's been awhile but i'm back. I'm going to make part 2 of best run 'n gun games soon. The theme will be "Platform and shoot" and a very new title will be on the list, can you guess?

 
 
 

Apparently I might be eligible for a free year of Disney+ through Verizon. If you have them as a service provider, check your account add-ons once Disney+ goes live tomorrow.

 
 
 

It's double XP and a community event in Dying Light till the 16th! Get your zombie killing on!

 
 
 

The anime Knight's & Magic was pretty good. It is kinda like Gundam (one of the good ones, like 00) but set in fantasy times and with mechs using elemental magic. Too bad it's only 13 episodes long.

 
 
 

I've got some thoughts about the new Watchmen show. Read ahead if you're caught up or don't mind spoilers.

 
 
 

Who's picked up the Fire Emblem dlc so far are you enjoying it?. I drew maid Annette, I saw a pic of her in the new maid suit's and by god she's so adorable I had to draw her.


 
 
 

And that's 12 hours of The Surge 2! I died 62 times, but I decided to bump up my donation in true dtoid fashion to a nice 69 bucks! That brings in my total to 350 USD! And since I hit 2 of my milestones, I'll be streaming 2 suprise games on Nov.13!

 
 
 

After going through some tough financial stuff (sold all my Switch games to buy food) I now have a job, earning more than I have before and my meds are kicking in. Not perfect, nothing is, but it's better. Hope y'all are doing well and surviving <3
