FEW gets the Japanese voice pack as a free download -- I'll pass, I got better use for the remaining storage I have left on Switch.

 
 
 

#OkändOnsdag Knightmare 2: Maze of Galious (Konami, 1987) is a metroidvania that was an inspiration to a popular Japanese indie freeware metroidvania in 2005. No, not Cave Story (Studio Pixel, 2004), the other one. (YT video by MSX2PLUS)



 
 
 

My 3-year old niece beat Monument Valley. I only helped her a couple of times, but it was only to teach her the mechanics. The rest she finished on her own! I'm proud of her and want to nurture that problem-solving brain of hers.

 
 
 

So Nightwish is playing Atlanta in March, but I don't really know anyone in Atlanta. Is it worth going to a concert alone?

 
 
 

Fuck I feel like setting a church on fire right now. Fuck everything. Gonna play some Evil Within 2. Hopefully it calms me down.

 
 
 

And Perseus Mandate is finished. I gotta give credit where credit is due, they really tried to make the best out of what they had, they tried to roll with the insanity of Extraction Point and improve on it. A solid expansion all around. I liked it better.


 
 
 
 

Well officially bored of destiny 2; luckily forza 7 is here to make it all better

 
 
 

Oh hey, this only has like... 15k views. Shame on you, internet! Shame on you!

 
 
 

I'm following Pumpkin Spice Fuzunga's lead and posting my own spine typo. This is from a copy of the anime Shangri-La the Compete Series S.A.V.E. Edition. #Typotoid


 
 
 

Now that botw doesn't fit into the timeline apparently, can we throw the whole thing in the trash. I'm fine with certain ones connecting but it's like trying to form a timeline with Final fantasy games. Don't bother, it'll just limit future games.

 
 
 

TCG sales in Japan are down more than 40% in Sep. 2017 compared to Sep. 2016. Sad to see the physical card market weaken but the digital TCG age is well underway. Sucks to be a card shop owner right now. (;-;) http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/20020356.ht

 
 
 

Well that was a fight. First Japan with the OHKO and then the States with a chainsword fatality. Kinda hope this becomes a thing.


 
 
 

hai guise. I maked this. I am open to suggestions and feedback. Hope y'all enjoy!



 
 
 
 

Wow, just watched Gordon Hayward of the Celtics break his leg in the NBA season opener (on youtube). Do NOT search this video if you are squeamish. Oh yeah and SPORTS! (I dont watch American Football, or baseball, plus the US didnt qualify for the WC)

 
 
 
 

Chicken Korma, or as white people call it: literally lava in my mouth

 
 
 
 
 

Good night, folks! Fun fact: I wanted to post a pic related to my current Pokémon Gen2 playthrough, and searched for "<b>ledian</b> sleeping". Google autocorrected my image search to "<b>lesbian</b> sleeping". So that's it, see you all tomorrow


 
 
 

I was listening to my music on random and this song came up. It had been a while and I was reminded how much I love it. Go ahead, give it another listen.



 
 
 

Yep. There goes my hype oh and Mecha-Hitler please?



 
 
 

Okay, sure, I'll watch the Golden Child
