I remember when Tatsumi Kimishima took over Nintendo nobody really knew who the hell he was. Turns out, he was president of Nintendo America before Reggie, and CEO of NoA until 2013! I feel like I would have remembered that if anyone reported it...

 
 
 

Three cabinets I hope are at the arcade auction coming up: Strikers 1945, Bubble Bobble, Tapper. What would your dream machine be?

 
 
 

Been watching Cowboy Bebop with Gus, Vxxy and Limo. Got five episodes left. Been a great time, the Ed focused episode was amazing.


 
 
 

Remember the Magic the Gathering art I shared some time ago? The artist is running a Kickstarter for art prints and play mats -- basically huge mouse mats that can be used as smooth tabletop surfaces. So I'm sharing it in case someone's interested!


 
 
 

Shame I couldn't bring this home. It'd slaughter everything on Steam no question.


 
 
 

Bowser is either an idiot or he prefers twintails.



 
 
 

Man, Ace Combat 7 needs a fucking photo mode. Or at the very least let you pause and rewind replays. Also, oops I left the HUD on. #DangerZone


 
 
 

Game 3 of 2019: Mega Man 11, which was a treat. I think the gear system is genius and only needs to be tweaked a bit in future games to not make bosses die instantly.

 
 
 

Anyone who is a fan of Wolf Children would absolutely adore this film.

I dare anyone who thinks teachers are paid too much to spend a full day in a pre-school lol. I love my job but I am exhausted when I get home.

 
 
 
 
 

It's no coincidence decorated mixed martial artist GSP and Reggie announced their retirement on the same day. Having caught wind of his retirement, Reggie decided to follow suit, knowing the only man who could still challenge him was a threat no more.


 
 
 
 

IT'S HERE! Outside of a few light scuffs, it looks IMMACULATE!


 
 
 

Astro Bot is genuinely one of the best 3D platformers I've ever played. It just never stops throwing new stuff at you and is a joy from beginning to end. Charm by the bucketful and banging tunes too. 10/10, must buy.



 
 
 

Coming Soon to a Five Dollar Friday Near You!



 
 
 

Gee, thanks for this suggestion YouTube...


 
 
 

Walmart put RWBY, Red vs Blue, Danny Phantom, and Batman Beyond in the Anime section, but none of them are anime because they were made in America.

 
 
 

Does anyone remember the article posted here a couple months ago about Google wanting to test it's streaming platform? Did you participate? If you did, check your uplay account. They gifted everyone in it a free copy of AC: Odyssey. What a nice gesture.

 
 
 

Reggie before you go:



 
 
 
 

Now hang on just a second. The new president’s name is Bowser? Where do they find these people lol!
