Is Old Yharnam a mandatory area? I'm going through it, and while the generic enemies feel in line, the elite enemies have not felt like it (kited them over an edge), and Blood-Starved Beast feels like too big of a spike to be right.


Good this chocolate is, yes.


I find that my favorite arguments, the ones I feel the strongest about and argue with the most vigor, are about the most trivial shit. Case in point: The most mediocre hot sandwich is better than the best cold sandwich.


Whoops, double posted. Here, have a silly picture instead.


Alright, my migraine is "better". Taking a nap helped. No longer hurts but I still feel a bit dizzy and nauseous. Gonna maks some peppermint tea and see how that helps.


Really, Iced Tea is the drink of the gods when you have a hangover... is 4pm and i just waked up, my head still hurts, i think im still a bit tipsy and i was thirsty as hell. Oh Iced tea! how i needed you!


Really, I've gotta fix up my KLWP Persona 5 theme on my phone to swap Makoto in for Futaba (sorry Inquisitive Ravenclaw!) but it's been so long since I set everything up in that app that I absolutely do not remember how to use it anymore.


What armor are you hunters wearing? My fav is the Teo/Rath mixed set because affinity builds with sharpness are fun.


Look at what I just got in the mail! Ahhh! It's out of print and I managed to snag some! Isn't it amazing?


If Black Panther did one thing well, it got me to stop getting the heebeejeebees whenever I see one of those African lip disc guys.


Have a great Sunday. I'll be listening to this album for the 50th time in the last week because I'm obsessed with it. This shit speaks to me.


Well it's my lucky weekend! I get to deal with my Father in Law again today! Twice in one week. I can't stand this man. I like most people but he is on my list!.


I'm liking Injustice 2 a lot. Technically not shocking, considering it plays a lot like Mortal Kombat X. Thing is, I like MK characters overall more than DC. But this has my fave, Subsy, AND Batman, Hellboy and TMNT. In a way, its roster is even better.


Would you guys prefer a new smash Bros brought to switch, or an improved port of the Wii U version?


In MHW is there any downsides to capturing? If I come into someones quest and cap it is that a possible dick move?


Bought axiom verge on sale to support Mr. Happ. Pretty good so far! You guys like or dislike it?


You know that trope where video game characters play a video game? Has there ever been a time where the characters inside that little game play an even SMALLER game inside of itself?


Times are hard. The morale hasn’t been particularly high, as Malika has been constantly sick due to baby. A student of mine committed suicide last Thursday, and I’ve had a very hard time processing it emotionally. Just a very challenging time right no


Overheard in med school - "I learned about the colon through the process of elimination."
