Hey guys guess who is about to graduate aaaaaaaaaw yeaaaaaah


What are some of gaming's most legitimately terrifying baddies/bosses? Personally, I can't think of any much moreso than a certain Neutral ending Undertale boss or SMTIV's YASO MAGATSUHI.


I likely won't see Star Wars until next week, but I've dipped my toes into KOTOR (first time ever) and classic Battlefront II via Steam. They're both scratching that Star Wars itch quite well. If anyone wants to get a multiplayer game going, let me know!


That official and cringey Youtube video of the corrupt FCC Chairman Ajit Pai about the "7 things you can still do on the internet after net neutrality" has been taken down. Versions of the video on other channels still exist.


Talking fight sticks? Who uses one. I have a HORI RAP4 kai


Did you know that donuts were first made in Greece?


Finally joining the Street Fighter V community. With the incoming Fight Money changes it just made more sense to get the game now while the getting's good. Also got my fight stick collection started with a Qanba Carbon.


Judging by the total lack of buzz I'm guessing nothing significant happens storywise in The Champions Ballad.


Today, WayFoward has started sending out codes for the Color Swaps and Drifter Blade for Shantae Half Genie Hero!


Wow, this is bold AF 3d pen folk! Not related to Nintendo or GameFreak as far as I can tell. But these are the Amazon pics. One more in comments


God I am so hyped for the MHW Beta now! I'm glad I didn't get PS+ just to try it. Good work shopping impulses.


Today's been a great day so far, finished off most of my Xmas list, and soon I'll be off to drink some beers with my work friends and go for hotpot right after. It's going to be a great weekend.


Whelp, not to sour anyone, but I saw Episode VIII and I absolutely hated it. Really enjoyed VII a lot too. I ... am shocked. Hope you guys like it more than I did.


Es is in Blaz Blue Cross Tag. *Someone knocks on my door* "Hello, Officer. No, you don't get it! She's a robot who looks like an oppai loli. You can't arrest me, she's my new waifu!"


Company holiday party tonight. They’re experimenting by having it on a Friday rather than a regular Monday through Thursday work night. I’m thinking they’re going to regret that decision.


My girls wanted to say, “Happy Howlidays” But they can’t because they’re dogs and they don’t have vocal chords but if they did....
