Looking forward to some Marios today if the collection is shipped on time!


Joyous news: Cavill is back as Supes. https://cosmicbook.news/henry-cavill-signs-superman-deal


Yay! Friday! And I should be getting my new Pro Controller, Xenoblade Remake, and 3d All Stars delivered today! (and I bought Hades yesterday) Switch is gonna get a workout! I played and bought more games during the pandemic than any other time. You?


Thinking on it, I had been saying Sony handled the PS5 pre-ordering situation pretty poorly. And while it could be argued that's true, at the same time then we saw how the new Nvidia cards were today. More below (This might take a paragraph or two.)


Exchange rate for 70$ is 60€, but PS5 games will cost 80€. Why?


Confession time: Whenever I hear an audio clip of Drumpf or one of his replaceable cronies, I hit the mute button. Those fascist fucks deserve to censored and removed from power. Even when I imagine Drumpf speaking in Palpatine's voice, it doesn't help.


Majora's Mask 3D is almost done 100%, makes me sad actually since I love Majora's Mask so much. Just need to do Great Bay, Stone Tower, Anju + Kafei, and a few cleanup sidequests then I'm done with the game completely.


I didn't think I'd need a retro-styled FPS in the vein of Crypt of the Necrodancer but here we are. This game looks amazing and the song in the trailer kicks ass too.


Current Status:


So, I just joined Reddit in order to advertise my new EP release. Am I wasting my time or are there some solid music, gaming or queer communities to interact with?


Just curious, has anybody watched Lovecraft Country on HBO Max? I know it's a dumb question--it's not like I don't have a ton of free time, and could just...watch it, lol. I'm sure I'll get too it, but I'm curious what you guys think.


So I completely forgot that I had some eShop credit leftover months ago, which combined with my gold points meant I only had to pay $33 for the Super Mario All Stars collection. Current status:


Man, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition looks AMAZING!


"It was a mistake for Microsoft to make their first party titles cross-gen. All those games will be held back by weaker consoles, unlike first party PS5 games which will take full advantage of Sony's new hardware."


It has been five years since Metal Gear Solid ended. In the time since then I've realized that it was my favorite game series of all time. There's closure in knowing that there will never be a new game, but it still hurts. Like a Phantom Pain...


I had to check, just out of curiosity. To no surprise, people are selling their PS5 pre-orders, and I'm sure they're selling. Also, Mario 3D All-Stars is already going for $90, but there is one seller, with copies for $58.99, if you need a physical copy.


I realized I'm just playing games I've played already, Borderlands 3, Tropico 6, Katamari Damacy Reroll, and Shadow of the Colossus. I need to fix that.


#bathroomselfietoid cases have been breaking out left and right at my school district. I’m am very anxious being at work, but I am doing the best that I can!


Pictured: Artistic rendition of people thinking Monster Hunter Rise is proof that a Switch pro is SURELY coming this spring. And it'll totally support 4k, you guys!


Hey folks. We've been clearing out some undesirables, and doing our best to make the ole unofficial community discord more friendly. Come hangout in Communicord with us! Link in comments.


Hey guys, this goes up in 45 minutes. If interested, have at it!
