Thaaaat's not a good sign. If you or anyone's around that pink area today, I'd be in shelter or ready to move at a moment's notice.


 
 
 
 

Finally managed to get HDR enabled on my TV, and oh my god the picture quality change is dramatic. It ested several games and films, watching Your Name right now, it looks amazing.

 
 
 

10 hours into FF12, thoughts? This game's pretty damn boring.


 
 
 
 

Did Game of Thrones end with Scotland Yard showing up and arresting the entire cast?

 
 
 

Couple of updates from yours truly. Firstly, Happy Victoria Day to those calling the Great White North their humble abode. Secondly, my Thief: Deadly Shadows retrospective article will be finally out sometime before the 25th.


 
 
 

I was driving to work this morning and there was this peculiar truck in front of me. I think I spotted Agent 47's side business when he is not busy putting out hits.


 
 
 

For I beheld Satan as he FELL FROM HEAVEN!

 
 
 

Took the day off to take the little guy to see Detective Pikachu


 
 
 
 

We're about two years away from Ubisoft having to apologize for running a game development sweatshop in Cambodia.


 
 
 

Hot damn.....I turned 40 on Saturday. Wasn't online all weekend. Happy C0-Birthday to Rad Party God,Parismio, and grumpyaussiewario.


 
 
 

Why does the switch turn on when you undock it, that's so annoying! Battery dead because it has been in sleep mode when it should have never turned on in the first place. Console feels like sparkly junk sometimes.

 
 
 
 

I've been offered a job in Monaco and I got surprised with my very own, original Bayonetta after I helped a friend out. A good start to the week. Now to watch the GoT finale... I hope your week is great too. x


 
 
 

I was let down so hard with the last episode of Game of Thrones. Im very:


 
 
 

It's a-me, Raiden!



 
 
 

The finale wasn't a dumpster fire but it also wasn't great.


 
 
 

I think at the end of the day, the thing I love most about Rage 2 is definitely it's realism.


 
 
 
 

even in a hat in time the cursed game follows me


 
 
 

I'm still annoyed with Jurassic Park popularizing the image of velociraptors as being so big. They were small compared to humans. If a dinosaur series needs a big raptor, the Utahraptor will do just fine. Feathers are optional.


 
 
 

I've seen this now you have to as well.


 
 
 

Finally replaced the couch after bed bugs. It has a chaise and a sleeper and I can not wait to be off and laze about on it all day.

Game In Progress: April 2019


This update won't be like the others. It won't be focusing on what I have done on my game. Or in this case, didn't. I just wanted to share my life experience of how I got here. Maybe some of you can relate. Maybe you won't. Perhaps, y...
