Hmm... I still haven't finished the story mode of Dissidia NT. That says a lot about how poorly it was made, but I'd like to make that my next game to kick off my backlog.


I'm tempted to boot up Gravity Rush 2 just to derp around with Lunar Style jumping and see just how far I can navigate around the world using only that.


Know what's weird? E3 speculation is always about sequels to existing IPs rather than new ones. I know it's impossible to get excited for ideas that don't exist yet, I just find it weird to think about. Hoping E3 2018 gives us something new & awesome too!


Finished Dusty Token grind. I didn't realize how much I'd enjoy messing around with infinite Gravity Power until I unlocked it. Then again, knowing me and platformer hubs, I should've expected I'd enjoy having that kind of freedom!


My Gravity Rush 2 Token grind's been going faster than I thought! Just might get it all done today!


Random question: How do you define "guilty pleasure" games, and how do you feel about them if you have any you play? Personally, I consider them "games which are objectively bad, not even subjectively, but which I still enjoy for personal preferences"


Been playing Rayman Legends thanks to PSPlus. Feels good to get back into a swing of doing some daily challenges to get my platforming fix!


Discord just reminded me that Super Mario Galaxy is 10 years old. I feel old.


Ooooo boy, I didn't even realize Hyrule Warriors Switch had the Adventure Maps of both Wii U AND 3DS versions. I've barely made headway into most of the Wii U DLC and never touched the 3DS one, so it just got all the more tempting to get in the future...


Gonna head out to treat my own mother soon, but I hope everyone's having an excellent Mother's Day!


I've been gradually getting addicted to Gems of War again... reminds me that I've never actually played a Puzzle Quest game. Maybe I should change that one of these days? Any recommendations?


Hmmm... haven't played Gravity Rush 2 for a while, even though I've got some token grinding to do before the servers close in two months. Might want to amend that this weekend before it slips my mind...


That cblog I wrote yesterday got me thinking... whenever I get back into DFO, I'd probably warm up w/ a new char before jumping back onto my main. But I'm curious what ya'll do when picking up an MMO you've not played for long. New char, or back to main?


Friends got me fantasizing about Warriors crossovers again and I remembered that we're getting Orochi 4 news this week. I want to get excited because that's what I like to do, but thinking logically, I REALLY shouldn't. Not yet. Not after seeing DW9...


And then Mario & Rabbids was no longer incomplete in my backlog!


I'm glad I chose today to get super addicted to Mario & Rabbids because it's the weekend and I'm almost done with the game and it'd be bad if I was this into it on a busier day


May the thing after the third one be with you today


Playing Mario & Rabbids reminds me... that DK DLC is supposed to come out this Spring, but we still don't have a more exact date?


List of most of the RPGs in my backlog. Currently focusing on Mario & Rabbids, finished up World 3 just this week!


I've wanted to get Ni No Kuni 2, but I have so many RPGs in my backlog already. Perhaps by the time I beat some of them, I'll be able to grab the game for a cheaper price?


I've decided to cut out my personal Twitter and other effortless time-wasters from weekdays. For a multitude of reasons, but one of them being so that I can play more games and do more for DToid! Even leisure time deserves to be taken seriously.


Recently went to the doc because of sinus issues. Found out I'm allergic to a couple of things I thought I wasn't and which I was regularly exposing myself to. Oops. Take care of your bodies, kids and squids!


The thing I love about games like Disgaea is I can make mooks in my army stronger than the protagonists and nothing can stop them from overthrowing Overlords if I believe in them


The fact that Overwatch keeps adding new characters from the OW crew's past is cool and all, but you know... the world could always use more heroes.


Been getting back into Disgaea 5. A bit overwhelmed by how much there is to keep up with after a year-ish hiatus, but it feels good to chip away at the story again.


Weird question. Do you feel more rested/rejuvenated or tired at the end of a good, long session of gaming?


Chat with friends is making me consider getting into Tera on PS4. It's also making me salty about class/race restrictions that grossly favor one race at the expense of others. Why do Elin have like 3 unique classes and Aman get none


Playing video games is pretty awesome, but have you considered WRITING about playing video games? The bloggers here sure have and it's awesome


One of the reasons I love video games is experiencing ridiculous fantasies such as watching television all day alongside a Pikachu. I'm still not sure what Game Freak was thinking. Nor am I sure why I bought that game as a kid.
