Overwatch has lost it's novelty for me. I've only played it once in the past 2 weeks and it was for half an hour. I don't really have fun or enjoy playing it anymore.


Happy national pie day. Remember where not to put your keyboard in a pie


That feeling when you finally find your main in a game.


Welp I'm done with Issac for a long ass time. The RNG is so awful to me. I mean how is it outta 20 runs I get like 6 dps upgrades and only one from an item room? Just wow. No worries though got yum heart with blue baby so... what did I ever do to you?!


I wish I could shake off this depression.


Bought Odin Sphere Leifthrasir at Gamestop for 30€ because I'm broke and my backlog is already massive so it seemed like the reasonable thing to do.


My cat is starting to get up in age(almost 15), seems in good health and very playful. Best behaved cat ever seen, and still manages to surprise me. 1st time EVER she intently watched TV while I played a game. She followed Shantae moving around.


I absolutely love Shin Megami Tensei IV, but it's impressive how those small tweaks introduced in Apocalypse improve on the experience. Also, those MGS and Dark Souls shout-outs were rather unexpected.


It's strange. I kind of want to harm Kelly the Con. On the other end, I kind of want to sail around the world with her, observing and fucking with every culture and political system possible. She's the real world equivalent of Tynnyfer for me.


Woot!!! Last Week Tonight will be back in February! Bring on the depression, birdy faced fact man!!


A better Weezer jam than Buddy Holly, from da bess Weezer album. Also applicable to a situation I'm in.


I realize there's been a fair amount of stress for everyone in the past few months - individual, political, and so on. That said, I'm still happy to be part of this community, and I'm glad to have so many of you as my friends.


I propose the 15th February to be the official Phalanx Pheller Day. It's a day after Valentine's, so it would be easy to remember. The 15th is also my Birthday and I therefore have the absolute legal authority to create this holiday.


SAMURAI JACK MARCH 11TH AT 11:30. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I wonder if Samurai Jack is so important that it's bumping DB Super or if this means Toonami will gain another half hour and start at 11pm.


The worst thing about January is waking up at 7:30 and finding it's still dark and temperatures are below freezing. Staying in bed is so tempting.


Unlocked Bard, Summoner and Scholar in FFXIV this week, then went back to level up tank jobs Sunday. Marauder went a lot better for me when I added Gladiator skills. Those lead up to Warrior and Paladin, so I guess I work toward those next.


You find a lucky ticket which grants you a free tour of a meat packing facility. While on the tour, you get lost among the sausages, and stumble across an old man. He tells you that he knows how to get out. Continued in the comments

Improving Pokemon

Pokemon is an excellent franchise. I've found every new title it releases a guaranteed time killer. The newest games, Sun and Moon, have become my favourite Pokemon games and were such an improvement over X and Y. However, that’s...

Life of Black Tiger - Death Of PSN?

Below is a link to Jim Sterling's gameplay of Life Of Black Tiger, a game for the PS4, costing $9.99. As horrendous as the game may be, and from what I've seen, it really is, it itself is not the problem. Well, it is, but not really. ...

Artist of the Week: The Greenhornes. New, but also old.

After the last few weeks covering big name artists deaths, I thought to myself, "Why don't we move away from the big view, the names and the glitz and bring it down a little bit. Make it a little more... intimate." So under that though...

My a tad unconventional personal Wii U 'end-of-life' fave games

Yesterday, I looked at how many physical Wii U releases I had. Given that I play only a handful of them - at best - within a month (Tank!Tank!Tank!, Just Dance 4, Just Dance 2015, Super Mario 3D World being the ones of January 2017), I...

Yakuza 0 Review: A Nostalgic Beat

The Yakuza series has been a cult hit from Sega and a spiritual successor to Shenmue. The series is a similar mish-mash of designs and genres just like Shenmue was. While Yakuza 0 is the latest in the series design-wise, it’s a p...

Who’s the Sexiest Character in Gaming?

Let's give some love to Demon's Souls

Now don't get me wrong, it's not that Demon's Souls is unappreciated, but let's face it. Demon's Souls is dramatically overshadowed by its older brother.  And to some extent, that was unavoidable. It was PS3 exclusive when all the...
