Have to go to dinner with my father in law in an hour (who absolutely sucks) and my wife's brother just bailed on the meal. Current status:



 
 
 

They’re dating... I am so happy with these you don’t even know.


 
 
 
 

A lot happened last night. Sorry I didn't ask for your help, I needed immediate action. More on this later as for now, I am still recovering and taking time for myself. BUMP, here's what happened: gonna be a long read and going personal but I trust in you

 
 
 

Another chill track, with a bit more electronic flavor - jazzy even. #musictoid | ZHU, Arctic Lake - Yours



 
 
 

TONIGHT ON FORTUNE ROULETTE: As we are drawing closer to the fourth and final season of Castlevania airing on Netflix, we're starting off with Castlevania Resurrection, an unreleased Dreamcast game! https://twitch.tv/virtuakazama


 
 
 

The RE2 remake is fun so far, but I'm a little disappointed they got rid of some of the cheesier parts.

 
 
 

Anyone playing RE8 on PS5 and noticing abrupt LOD changes in open areas? I didn't see any mention of this on Digital Foundry and wondering if it's just me.

 
 
 
 

MOUSE TRAP! Dark Souls: Remastered https://twitch.tv/shutupaceyp P.S. Eat, Pray, Tell me to Shut Up!


 
 
 

The next time I buy a lemon to use its zest, I'll make sure to eat the fruit. Yummy! (My second batch of lemon biskvis went a lot better in some respects, worse in some other.)

 
 
 

I have fallen down a rabbit hole (one box is for my friends, don't JUDGE ME)


 
 
 

So finally got some time to play Returnal. I like it. But yeah, the save thing sucks. Like putting a system into rest mode should not be the only way to resume progress. This is like leaving a NES on overnight.

 
 
 

Still in Thailand, and things are degrading quickly. It's getting grim in Southeast Asia. I want to say more, but I've been told not to talk about it by the embassy. Everyone send good thoughts out to India, Thailand, and all the surrounding areas.

 
 
 

Game called 7th Sector is on sale on the eshop for €12, seems maybe intresting might pick it up. Seems to be basicaly a cyberpunk like 2D puzzle game. Not sure if the switch port is good or not.



 
 
 

"PLAY WITH ME SOME MORE!!!" I can't, help, I'm stuck in Village about 2 hours in. Dammit. Spoilery question in comment.

 
 
 

im about to eat two chicken burgers life is great bro

 
 
 
 

Okay, I just noticed something about the ps5 that is a little annoying. I have Nioh 2 as a physical PS4 copy, but to play the ps5 version, the disc needs to be in. This instantly tells the system to reinstall the ps4 version on the disc. See what I mean?

 
 
 

P H A T B O I


 
 
 

Okay, I finished episode 1 of Invincible. Holy. Shit. That is all.

 
 
 

Glad you're all enjoying RE8. In my childhood I chose the Die Hard Trilogy over Resident Evil and so never truly got into the series.


 
 
 
 

Finished Sonic Colors (Wii). I'm surprised to find I enjoyed the 3D game more than its 2D counterpart, but then Colors is still largely 2D either way. The characterization and narrative was cute and unoffensive, the worlds were fun, and it had good music!

 
 
 

Man that part in Nier Replicant where you have to move slow in the room with projectiles is annoying as fuck to do. Mainly because its easy to make the analogue stick make your movement normal instead of slow by accident and have to restart the room.
