Been using the Hotstock app to get timely 3080/3070 notifications and got one. Was for $999. I said "fuck these scalpers, I'll never support that, even if I could." I immediately got an email my credit limit increased by $3000 outta nowhere. God tempts me


Guys help, I made the mistake of listening to Vergil's DMC5 theme before bed and now that I woke up its all I can listen to! You need to stop me before it completely consumes m-I AM THE STORM THAT IS APPROACHING!!!


I've bought over 60 cards I needed to finish building my Commander deck. Pro: it will be full of budget goodness like our good boy pictured below. Con: the store is from another state and I have to wait for it to be delivered and aaaaaaaah


Finally caught up with the future and got myself wireless headphones. Feelsgood.


This might be a shit post, but as excited as I am for cyberpunk I think it is odd how many people think it is a "next gen" experience. It looks like it will be gorgeous when it has the hardware update for ps5/XsX but....


Some things never get old


Not to get political or anything, but kings on Twitter are way too clumsy. They keep dropping their crowns!


Ugh, just got softlocked in DOOM: Eternal. I'm liking the game fine but this I have so little patience for...


Oh hey there's a new Worms game. But it's, uh... It's different.


Now that I have beaten Yakuza 0 and am enjoying the post game content, I can now fully appreciate those Kiryu never killed anyone memes. Man they're great.


So apparently Dragon’s Dogma 2 leaked in that Capcom ransomware attack... I’m simultaneously overjoyed and sad, because these leaks are not a fun way to get game ”announcements” :(


PSA: Space Invaders Forever is coming to the Switch and PS4 on Dec. 11, 2020. It includes Space Invaders Extreme, Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders, and Space Invaders Gigamax 4 SE. I didn't know this was coming so soon and I love these games. :)


{Wordtoid} Maybe not news to big Star Wars fans, but clever etymology is used in Darth Vader's name. The other Sith lord's names are easy. Plagueis - Plague. Sidious - Insidious. Vader - Invade, but Latin vadere means "to walk".


Never thought I'd be this hyped for a port of a 2010 DS game, but here we are. Can't wait for this to unlock later today. I've been waiting years for the right time to play this and finally the time has come. Time for some Fushigi no Dungeon!


One day I won't get in trouble at work on my days off, since they called me in today again. Today was not that day sadly. Gonna eat some pizza, go to bed, and do it all again tomorrow! :D


Haven't heard trance in a while, but this one is a goodin. Much more uplifting than most and gives off lots of energy. #musictoid | Armin Van Buuren, Super8, Tab - Leka


As the end of the year draws close, it occurs to me I should really get around to putting together my GOTY list. Dunno if I'll be playing any more new games this year.


Just ran through Mafia: DE in 11 hours and even did it on classic difficulty. Not a bad remake! This basically unifies the three games into the same general visual quality and that's cool. Got SW: Squadrons, and then it's back to Death Stranding. GAMES!


This looks like a fun game and that price tag seems reasonable. I hope someone at Dtoid will review it soon.


I've been absolutely glued to the Super Mario Bros Game and Watch. It's so simple and convenient that I can't not play it.

Revisiting Far Cry 2
