Picked up Persona 5 Royal on a discount. Wasn't willing to pay full price since it's mostly identical to a game I already own, but with a price reduction? Yeah, I'll bite. I'ma probably disappear for a bit because unholy time sink, haha!

 
 

Yeah, all right. Ghost of Tsushima is infinitely more fun on Lethal difficulty. Holy crap. I kinda love this game now.

 
 

I've got to say, I'm enjoying Spider Man: Miles Morales just that little bit more than the OG PS4 game. It's just much more concise and focused, with far less of the superfluous cruft. It's what made the previous game great, without the baggage.

 
 

Oh lordy. Souls PVP is still Souls PVP. This invader took absolutely no damage after I backstabbed them.

 
 

You know you're in the right place to rescue Yuria the Witch when you spot a message someone left saying "Cute person ahead." Oh, Demon's Souls.

 
 

Holy heck, the Old Monk fight is a real treat in the Demon's Souls remake. It's nice to be able to see that with a genuinely flourishing online playerbase.

 
 

Getting my fourth (!) Pure Bladestone before getting a single chunk is the most extreme and terrible example of RNG going utterly fucking insane. Took a slight break before and oh god why is this even happening?

 
 

What even is RNG? I got my first Pure Bladestone before even getting my first Bladestone Chunk.

 
 

Fucking hell, PS5 backwards compatibility is absolutely transformative for some games. Sekiro is now running at a completely unflinching 60FPS, it's amazing.

 
 

What the fuck the Demon's Souls remake character creator is so good! Anyone has access to any body type and feature (including voices, facial hair, animation types), with no gendered language used. It's inclusivity by way of giving folks more options.

 
 
 

iCloud save support should be available for any single-player iOS game. It's annoying that I can't transfer my Danganronpa saves between my phone and tablet. Though at least with Stardew Valley, I can AirDrop my save folder between devices.

 
 

EDIT: Welp. Dark Souls didn't work. So now we're gonna screw around with other shit. Come check out the Destructoid Twitch channel! Dreezy's playing some games for Extra Life. https://www.twitch.tv/destructoid

 
 
 
 

I am so, so emotionally drained. I think I'm just going to lay on the couch drinking choc hazelnut beer and watching xxxHolic. This is the thing that I should be doing right now. It seems like the most sane option.

 
 
 

My copy of the latest Mr. Bungle record arrived!


 
 

Hey. Hey Australia Post? In what way is this an acceptable state for a record to arrive in? It doesn't even physically play on my turntable, it's so warped.


 
 

Apparently it's possible to access the Crown Tundra's Dynamax Adventures before even doing the first Gym in Sword and Shield. That's kinda interesting, and I'd like to see if it affects the speedrun meta. Free level 65 (or level 70 Legendary).

 
 

Spent a bit of time playing Pokemon before, but now I guess it's time to lay down and continue watching Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai. I kinda felt the need to rewatch it due to the new series that's ongoing <3.

 
 

Playing around with Regieleki and Tapu Koko in Pokemon Sword. God damn that Pokemon is disgusting. Its ability boosts electric attacks, which it already gets a STAB bonus from. And it's the single fastest Pokemon ever. Brutal.

 
 

Here's Bumpy. He's a piece of shit, but he's my piece of shit. He's vicious and all round terrible, but I love him. #Caturday


 
 

My copy of Anaal Nathrakh's Endarkenment arrived! I kinda sorta had to do some tasteful cropping to show it off because it did not, in fact, come with the censored artwork -- unless you count a small card featuring it. Only uncensored.


 
 

I installed Genshin Impact and gave it a bit of a look. Honestly, it seems like a pretty solid game. Though I feel like I'd enjoy it a lot more if it didn't have any gatcha mechanics. You know, if it were on Apple Arcade or a premium (paid) game.

 
 

My copy of Ahab's The Giant (and an Ahab shirt) arrived today! Some solid, proggy nautical funeral doom metal <3.


 
 

So the new Anaal Nathrakh album is out! And it's kind of goddamn amazing. Holy hell. This may be one of their most melodic and decipherable tracks since Forging Towards the Sunset on Vanitas, mind. But so fucking good!

 
 

This just arrived! What better way to start the Halloween season than with some Skeleton?


 
 

Hey, you. Yes, you. You, the cute person reading this Qpost. You owe it to yourself to take it easy for a bit <3. Do something fun, unwind, maybe watch Nichijou or play something cathartic. Shit's fucked right now, so try to take care of yourself~


 
 

This just arrived! It's on yellow and light blue vinyl <3
