A post here reminded me of a cartoon I grew up with so I wasted an hour watching openings from my childhood... #cartoontoid


Acquired Persona 5 Strikers yesterday and put 4 hours into it today. Can confirm that it is awesome... They put some serious love and care into this, and it freaking shows. Those sweet sweet menus..


I am a man of faith.


I'm posting this as a public service announcement. Not because I'm thirtsin for a pretty well done cosplay by luxlocosplay


Seemed to have nailed my "Switch Pro" prediction on the display size increase and 4K output mode, but not the resolution? Surprised they're only going w/ 720p. A 1080 panel could let you run docked mode in handheld using a more efficient Tegra chip


Hey remember Storm Hawks? I remember Storm Hawks.


Let's face it, Gamorrean Guard are literally just orcs and thats why I love em.


Guilty Gear Strive has been delayed to June 11. Hopefully this'll give them time to completely re-do the lobbies! I'd be fine with the classic "3D chibis running around" look.


Beat soundtracks in the series, for sure.


The noise keeps getting louder. I would LOVE to play a simple game like Link's Awakening without framerate hitches. Or Age of Calamity w/out the grass 2 inches ahead of me popping in every moment at sub-480p. Love my Switch, but it's a struggle at times..


After and before pic of my gaming setting. Now I can actually see my consoles! Before pic in the comments.


Chicken eggrolls & Guinness Extra Stout = Best dinner. Change my mind


"There better be some fucking flashbacks." -- Watching a movie version of TLOU2 with my mom and it's going about as well as you'd expect!


Care for a bit of Persona 5 fun? If you have one, what is your Palace and what is your Treasure?


Well, fun day of letting the team know we're all at risk of redundancy. Same day one gets told his mother has breast cancer and a week after another's husband is diagnosed with Motor neurone disease. 2021, fuck me dead.


Having a bit of a rough time right now. Details in the comments.


If they ever make another Hitman game I hope they go back to regular targets and stop with this shadow cabal puppet master bullshit.


Why did PS3 games have that clear bit at the top?!


PSA: for anyone interested, ScourgeBringer is coming to PS4 and PS Vita on April 22nd.


For the first time in my gaming history, I'm not looking forward to the next new thing from Nintendo. I just want updated / more powerful Switches like Apple does iPads and fully backwards compatible. It's already a damn near perfect product


Ace Combat music in a nutshell:


My sister put this in our group chat and it gave me a good chortle.
