Somewhere out there, hopefully, there is an alternate universe incarnation of myself who doesn't waste time trying out new mobile games for like 1-3 days before uninstalling them probably forever.

 
 
 
 

Hope you're all enjoying the extended weekend, guys n gals

 
 
 
 

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is soooo so good. It's the level based Castlevania I've been wanting for so long.

 
 
 

Ninja...Gaiden...3...Razor's Edge...beaten...I...am...the...best...ninja.


 
 
 

I gotta say, this music video got me good. I actually laughed when he played guitar alongside himself. The seriousness of the song & Mayer's music in general (which I'm usually not super attached to) clashes beautifully with the video.



 
 
 

Inti Creates, if you could make a Gradius or Contra like game, that would be just great.

 
 
 

So apparently the movie is being sued but not by Disney, but by Sesame Workshop. I was close.


 
 
 

At the behest of one of my favorite Youtube channels, I’m going to give Fallout 3 another honest shot with fresh eyes.

 
 
 

Besides the fact that Slain runs terribly on Switch (when you are moving...sitting still sees the game at 60fps), it started to remind me of something that I have not thought of in a long time: MK Mythologies. Remember MK Mythologies???

 
 
 

I just watched all of FLCL in a row during that Toonami marathon and it was a lot better that way. I still don't understand why it's one of the best anime ever, though.

 
 
 
 

I can't clean this colander because it won't hold water. They should make them without holes!

 
 
 

Hallo everybody! My name is B.B. and I just started writing here! I've got a post going up later today on Flixist, so watch out for it!

 
 
 

Did you hear about the new bamboo trees at the zoo? It was pandamonium out there!

 
 
 

For those who haven't heard the next bit of sad news Ted Dabney Co-founder of Atari has died age 81. May he rest in peace

 
 
 

My squad on Warframe dismissedly sighed after the mission. I guess they didn’t appreciate how I cheesed a level 100 Grineer boss with my bare hands.

 
 
 

Been invited to my friends Twitch stream after a couple drinks. Feel free to pop by. Link in the comments.


 
 
 

Just stretching a little after Blight Town.

Watched Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO today in its entirety. It was... interesting. Not amazing, but I adore the concept and its structure. More in the comments.


 
 
 
 

Finally completed my fifth monster design and the first one to be (partially) aquatic in nature. Meet the Memorrhage, a fiend that'll drag you (and people's memories of you) to the bottom of its underwater abode.


 
 
 

Finally convinced my parents to allow me to not take summer classes. That's a load off. Now I'm in a better financial place for the fall semester.
