I swear I'm the worst at finishing games. I've yet to beat Death of the Outsider, Hollow Knight, Super Mario 64 AND Prey, even though I'm a significant portion through all of them. Ugh.


RNG + Treasure chests in FF12 has me quite angry. I just want techniks, and I don't want to re load a zone 20 times to try and get them


I keep finding excuses to put off playing The Red Strings Club.


Shopaholics never die, they just sale away.


Help a sister out guys. I'm almost set to launch my Etsy shop. I still don't have a name for it. I'm wanting to open March 1st.


Here's a little more Overwatch from me! Just like with RE5, though, I'll probably stop sharing these particular videos from me at this point. Don't wanna inundate you all with everything I post. Anywho, I continue having fun editing these, especially!


Today on this most auspicious of holidays, we must all remember one thing...


To make Bayonetta doable on breaks at work, katanas make her less naked.


Those were the good old days, weren't they?


Finally got around to beating AM2R and I'm seriously impressed. It's better than Samus Returns by a long shot and easily one of the best games in the series. Play it if you haven't!


I still think my idea for Wreck it Ralph 2 is better than what they seem to currently be going for. Having a second Fix it Felix Jr machine where the Ralph in that one enjoys being bad. Just a thought...


Ever wondered how Shadow made Infinite rethink his entire life? Here's your answer.


So guys, I gotta tell you some great news!!! Your girl WON A PLUSHIE COCK!!! I'm so excited. 馃槉


I鈥檓 ready to go home, but my work computer decided to perform a mandatory security update.


Looks like the work weeks going to be a light one this week. I also have Hellblade which I'll try to start and I may try to keep cracking at MHW. Overall I'm not feelin too bad today, and I'm hopeful its a good week. Praise Nixon on this glorious day.


Started playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in honor of Presidents Day. 5 years old and this game is still amazing. It's no wonder Platinum has built up such an awesome reputation.


I searched for "bayonetta switch special edition" on Amazon and found this on the 1st page of results. Is there something I should know about this game?


Gotta love the gym's showers this time of the year, they're either freezing cold or boiling hot.


It might be President Day in the states, but here in Canada it's Family Day! Go celebrate your family! Hug your parents! Chill with your siblings! Or at least give em a phone call!


Ostensibly, today is President's day. (Time and space are both a mystery to me, but my calendar says it is, so whatevs) Related, here is the President of my heart:


... I beat Darkbeast Paarl on the second try? What the fuck? Also the visceral attacks were doing like a third of his health, that was nuts.


21 degrees and snowing. Perfect weather for a run to the gym!
