I've forgotten how to write and like stuff and live.

Of course Rise is getting an Okami crossover.



 
 
 

Sometimes you gotta tell your job your internet is down to come online a little late. Burn out is real folks.

 
 
 

Just realized that the Capra Demon is the capricorn demon. I wonder if the gargoyles were the gemini demon, and which others are related to the zodiac...

 
 
 
 

Maybe Demon's Souls isn't the best choice of games to play while trying to quit smoking...

 
 
 

This is for anyone who wants to hear what AJFA sounds like properly mixed. Excellent work on drastically improving what was already a favorite album and a fun watch. #ArbitraryMetalTuesday



 
 
 

Got a bit further into Vergo Vs The Zodiac now and its pretty fun so far. Main story is simple,mainly a excuse to go to cool places but I like the story that is there. Lots of flavour text with every box having unique text and nice variety in weapons.



 
 
 

The Reunion mod continues to do its thing. I wonder how hard it would have been to use the battle models everywhere in the PS1 version. Looks so good.


 
 
 

Beat kraid in metroid. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would based on the first few deaths. I'm starting to get the hang of it

 
 
 

kinda ironic given that activision was originally founded by a group that broke away from atari due to a toxic work environment, 40 years ago

 
 
 

That Weiss fight in FF7 Remake is straight BULLSHIT! All of his moves are super hard to dodge, he can heal his stagger meter, he has 3 different forms, and one move he has instantly kills everyone. Keep the Carbuncle summon on hand, you may need it.


 
 
 

I’m curious to see what the Blizzard employees who signed the letter think about the boycott ideas. I’ve been in a similar (not near as bad) situation with an employer, and I was fucking TERRIFIED customers would walk. It would mean jobs. More below

I'm going to talk about all the cancelled Metroid games I could find in my eventual blog series, but I wanted to give a shout out to the unused villain of the original Metroid Prime 2, an insane AI with multiple personalities. Would love see it in a game!


 
 
 

Drunk on a monday because life is a joke, hooray!!! Spicy Chicken this weekend though, so thats a goal, right?

 
 
 

Duncan Rhodes looks like an annoying cunt who wins bar trivia night every week. He looks both 14 and 40 at the same time. He always cums first, then leaves to eat. Alright, I'm done. The man is talented af, but christ he seems like a smarmy cunt.



 
 
 

Was planning on beating Mass Effect today, but a sudden case of some sort of flu postponed that. Runny nose, sore throat, super tired. That sort of thing. Might spend the rest of my evening checking out that Owl House cartoon on disney.

 
 
 

Pokemon Unite just isn't making sense to me. I don't understand how I'm consistently melted by opposing Pokemon 1v1. I can handle losing, but I don't get HOW I'm losing, and it's becoming frustrating

 
 
 

Nearly everyone I grew up with that never moved away from those small Midwest/southern towns are idiots.


 
 
 

Yesssssssssssssssssss!!!!


 
 
 

Hi. How're you doing? Having a good Monday so far? Good. Good. Hey, did you know that the industry we love is rotten to the core?



 
 
 

Timeshift stones just might be my favorite Zelda series puzzle mechanic. They do some really awesome stuff with it in Skyward Sword.

My First Three Days with Far Cry 2


Over these three days I had enough game breaking glitches to end four or five play sessions but I persevered. If you do the same then rewards await. The game is haphazardly delightful. If you've played it you know what I mean.   D...

Cannon Brawl (Switch) Review


Note: review code provided by Blitworks. For me, artillery games are a very early childhood memory rooted in Flash. Launching cannon shots and chunking away at the terrain has been around for a surprisingly long time in video games, a...

Paper Mario: The Origami King review


If there's a game I've played in recent years that defines 'a fun time, but-' to the letter in my books, it'd be Paper Mario: The Origami King. It's a grand adventure that's colourful, well-written, has great set pieces, and a fantasti...
