Meolotov-Ribenpurr Pact


I noticed quite a few obvious easter eggs in Castlevania S2 but I'm honestly impressed with the cabinet one (around 4:18). Mind blown on that one.


As someone who really struggles to finish Pokémon games, I’m finding it quite easy to stick with Let’s Go. It’s very cute not quite as tedious as other entries. This is definitely not for everyone, but it’s pretty good for the casual itch


Northernlion just hit 1,000 episodes of him playing Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+!


Upstairs neighbours are blasting Nickelback. I should leave.


Final boss of Fallout 76 is a dragon. Todd Howard got us to buy Skyrim again without us knowing.


All our ancestors were neckbeards and legbeards.


Vanguard in ME3 seems different than in ME2. Any build tips? Also, damn, looking at it again I'm fairly confident ME3 looks better if not at least as good as Andromeda, at least with mods. Character models and animations are definitely better.


Happy 100th year of independence to Latvia 🇱🇻 🇱🇻 🇱🇻 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 I’m honored to be a part of its history and culture. #themoreyouknow


Well, I checked out what upcoming concerts are in my area. February’s going to be fun, as I now have tickets to see both Alestorm and Deafheaven.


I meant to post this on the 14th but Happy Birthday to all newborn babies, 1 year olds and 3 year olds. I really hope your parents didn't name you Chris and Anna if you were twins. #50shadesbabies


Unpopular Opinion?: I'm happy with BLU in FFXIV. I'm glad it starts at level 1, and don't mind the 50 cap. I know what it's like (from FFXI) to be treated poorly for missing spells. I wouldn't want it to start at 50/60, with spells pre-learned via quests


Does anyone have this problem where the Esc key stops working? Happens to me often when I'm in a game and I don't really know what causes it.


Well, I've been out all weekend, so I've not had a chance to play Let's GO in docked mode until now. Turns out that yes, I much prefer handheld mode. It's a shame that the game won't let me use the Pro Controller, since I find the motion controls fiddly.

Fledgling retrodev: AI and Data Reuse

Like I said in my previous blog on Bumper Ship Racing, my future blogs on that game won't focus on a single topic. This time, we have two topics: an unnecessarily fancy reuse of data for little practical purpose and how the AI in the g...

ARGH! A blog about being depressed, not about suffering depression.

An Unbiased Look: Fallout 76

DISCLAIMER: If you are only interested in a verdict of the game, please jump to the last summary paragraph. It's November 14. Fallout 76 was launched way earlier than most folks anticipated, for certain regions. I was able to get righ...
