Eid Murabak to my Muslim friends here on Dtoid! Have a great celebration :)


Can anyone recommend a good linear game to complete on the PS3 or PS4 since after Persona 5 I'll be moving on to Nier and Yakuza and I might go mad from open-worlditus.


Does anyone recommend Oceanhorn on the Switch? It looks really pretty.


If you think that growth in videogames can equate to a contest then you are seriously delusional. Stop wasting time on growth if you only seek to surpass others, it is a waste of time and effort. Playing more than someone else doesn't make you better.


Oh, god dammit. It turns out that the English-localised version of Fate/Grand Order isn't available on the Australian App Store. That's... that's pretty shitty.


Yesterday, we went skeet shooting for the first time. Was surprisingly relaxed and fun, had a better hit ratio than I do in games. Girlfriend enjoyed it a lot more than going to a range. My shoulder, on the other hand, is not fan.


Tracy Chapman really taps into my depression well



In Australia, we have an ice cream called Golden Gaytime. People never make the easy joke here and I respect that. I was kind of hoping that would happen with the Japanese tuition game.

Remember kids, if you play games with bad balance or mechanics, you should put in 30-50 hours in hopes of getting good at the game, otherwise you aren’t allowed an opinion on said game.


GOG code for Alan Wake's American Nightmare in the comments ;)


Dr Who this week in a single image pretty much. I've not seen the show go this dark for a long time


My opinion has never fallen as quickly as it has with Hollow Knight. I was already having enough trouble with a boss, plus it was annoying to reach, now I find out it has multiple phases? So on top of backtracking, I have to repeat a boss too? Nah.


My computer put me through the ringer today. It wasn't recognizing my monitor, then when we finally got it to do that, it decided that my resolution was obviously too high and wouldn't go back. Now it has audio problems and I'm too tired to care anymore.


Also, speaking of backlog, I'm finally at Luigi's Mansion 2 final boss. I was realling looking towards it, as the game never was thaaaat much fun and drags on a little bit too much. Still a valid and ok experience, though


Ok, I'm a good 6 episodes into Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, and I can safely say that if you don't enjoy this show you don't have a soul.


Just beat Spak the Electric Jester's first campaign. The art is rough, the cutscenes are definitely amateurish, ut hloy heck the gameplay and soundtrack where solid as rock. Will try to focus on the backlog now, but I want to check the other stories later


I wish playmobil had the balls to release a 1529 seige of vienna set after releasing this martin luther figure.


Just bought Cyberbots. Im finally gonna play the game where Jin is from after all these years playing him in MVC2:




I entered the garage to bring the cats back in for the night, and there's this baby vole that a kitten and a big dumb tomcat try to steal from each other. Last I saw the vermin, it was battered and in the paws of the kitten, but I didn't see it get eaten.


I've been playing Ni-Oh the past few weeks and I have to gush about it. It's the best Souls-like I've ever played. It's like Ninja Gaiden the RPG. Also, you can spec as a ninja and it's viable. How did I skip this?
