Spent some of my eShop rewards coins so that I could finally perfect my most brilliant of Smash Bros. Mii fighters. Behold!


 
 

I try not to get caught up in hype. It doesn't always work. This is one of those times. Because holy fuck Rivers in the Desert! In Smash Bros! <3!

 
 

@Wes Tacos once offered to steal Occams' guro collection for me. This was years ago, and he now just evades the topic whenever I bring it up. I never received any of the ill-gotten artwork and literature.

 
 

@Wes Tacos never pays for beer. Like, ever. He just expects me to foot the bill each and every time. Even when I politely ask him to pay my share. What a scam!

 
 

Replaying Gravity Rush 2. God damn does this game never cease to make me smile. The world traversal is just so fun, and Kat is such a genuinely loveable protagonist. It's just one of the most heartfelt games that I've ever had the sheer joy of playing.


 
 

Been listening to the new Darkcell album. God damn this is some good industrial.

 
 
 

Well, I was considering doubling down on the sheer edginess with my PSN name change for fun, but then I remembered Poe's Law is a thing and also that's a stupid and terrible idea. So instead I went with something a hell of a lot more adorable.


 
 

You know how I know I got old? I’m getting all excited about buying a fancy new laptop bag to replace the cheap one I picked up a decade ago. But dammit, it’s pretty.


 
 

Finally getting around to watching Into the Spider-Verse. Ordered it in on a whim because dammit, it looked like something that'd be glorious on UHD based on what little footage I'd seen.


 
 

So there's a new Devin Townsend album and it's kind of fucking amazing. That is all.

 
 

Just got home from seeing Heaven's Feel II. It was fucking excellent. Ufotable with a cinematic budget is a goddamn sight to behold, and while the previous film was mostly setup, things really pick up with this one. Also, it has much more of best girl.


 
 

Put a few hours into Sekiro. Christ, despite my hundreds of hours of game time invested into the Souls series, it’s finding all sorts of ways to fuck me up. I kinda love it for that.

 
 

Earlier today, there was a shooting in Christchurch. While there is allegedly footage of this incident, the Dtoid Community Team would like to ask you to please keep it off the site. Discuss the event if you may, but please keep it to just text. Thanks.

 
 

Got myself a ticket to see Eluveitie in May! I've wanted to see this group for weeeeell over a decade now, and I missed out on them the last time they were here. This was a necessity.

 
 

Saw Captain Marvel. It was a pretty enjoyable film with a very fine cat. The cat was great, and I want it to have its own movie. I’d watch the crap out of that. Or least have it show up to be a good cat in Endgame. Just something!

 
 

Hey! As Rasori and Tohsaka have already pointed out, you can still view comments for individual Qposts if you just click on the chain link icon. It’s a little roundabout, but yeah. Sorry for any inconvenience! Edit: Bump for visibility.


 
 

Decided that I want to replay Xenoblade Chronicles X. Man, it's really sad to see the warning that the Miiverse service has ended each and every time I boot the game up. But at least I found a pair of cat ears. That's clearly the most important thing.

 
 

As a friendly reminder, if you want another way to chat with other Dtoid-ers, we’ve always got a Discord server! It’s right here: https://discord.gg/3J3kcQd

 
 

Holy fuck. Slayer was so good, and Behemoth and Anthrax were fucking glorious. Not even the rain (which ironically happened during Raining Blood) could dampen the mood. This may be Slayer’s final tour, but they’re going out in a wave of brutality.


 
 

Holy crap. This time tomorrow, I’ll be out seeing Behemoth, Anthrax, and Slayer. I’ve wanted to see all three of these groups for years now so I’m excited as hell.

 
 

Thanks to my Xbox One's ability to change regions (and storefronts), as well as a U.S. gift code, I can now watch Lords of Chaos. Let's see how it is.

 
 

Well, I’ll be seeing Deafheaven tonight. I’ve been looking forward to seeing them for a while, so I’m pretty excited. But first, beer. It is a necessity.


 
 

Oh god. I got back into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in a major way. Nia is still pretty much the best JRPG character ever. More games need Nia.


 
 

Decided to once again feed a cruel and uncaring capitalistic system to satiate my weebish consumerist desires. Which is a roundabout way of saying that I did more shopping for anime.


 
 

Had to upgrade my iCloud storage because I inevitably wind up buying each and every Humble manga bundle that occurs. I guess I could manually sync these books to my tablet, but that means I have to hook it up to a PC whenever I want to swap them. Welp.

 
 

So, I made a decision that's probably incredibly goddamn stupid, but also definitely a good idea. I got myself a ticket to see Anaal Nathrakh two days after I see Behemoth, Anthrax, and Slayer. And also it’ll be on my birthday. This'll be brutal as shit

 
 

Soooo... how long would it take for someone to die of alcohol poisoning if they took a shot whenever someone said "darkness" or "heart" in Kingdom Hearts?

 
 

Picked up Kingdom Hearts. I feel like I’m going to be playing this with an iPad next to me, Wiki tab open just to help me refresh my memory.


 
 

Well, I hit the combat level cap in Old School RuneScape. That certainly happened.
