{Wordtoid} It doesn't look like the folks writing the "old English" in Octopath Traveler really knew what they were doing, from what I've seen of Ophilia's opening story. Lots of bogus old phrases that "sound" old like "lanthorn" for "lantern".


Humorolahraga sounds like the name of a minor prince of hell that presides over the tellers of tasteless jokes.


I guess this is a double post, but whatever: If you like pipe organ music and/or classical music or Bach in particular, do give this a listen. Listen even if you don't, at least the first bit. Very stirring stuff.


I'll run defense for competitive Smash all damn day, I've got a lot of practice. And without needing to shit on other games and the people who play them.


Have a fine weekend everyone. I don't say this often enough: Happy to be apart of this site.


Dear Japan: We need to talk about the definitions of the words Brave, Guts and Gear. See me after class.


I submit, to the ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Exhibit A: Nancy Reagan kissing Mr. T dressed as Santa Claus.


So I was going to post a C-blog about Smash Ultimate and all the things I observed through videos in the trailer and on the official site, but since they gave a ton of competitive players full access to the demo at E3, I think I'll just link this:


The setting of Sekiro doesn't interest me, but I LOVE the fact that From did what I've been hoping: Not just make another Souls/Bloodborne fan-service game. That shit's comfort food by this point, and that's fine, but they can do better and they did!


Thank GOD RE 2 remake isn't first person. That would have killed it for me.


Unlisted music on Nintendo's Smash channel (it's hosted on the official site, but through a weird embedded link that doesn't look like a youtube link). This one's pretty neat!


I will be producing a blog that examines the move sets of these characters once I'm off of work. For instance, I can tell you Ridley most likely has a counter and that marth has a directional neutral-B.


Hey, folks. I posted another Word Play. It's kinda like my Wordtoid quick posts but in video form. Today features Metroid Prime and 4 words: Strafe, Metro, Android, and Morph. Thanks and enjoy.


For anyone who follows Smash really closely, this should be pretty funny


They had to skip the next 72 Fallouts to get to one that also wasn't just Fallout 3 again.


This is genuinely hilarious.


It's already E3 judge's week, holy baloney.


If things that go out explode, and things that go in implode... then that means at all other times things are in a state of plode.


I guess chalkboards are basically gone now. Which means the art of writing smoothly on a chalkboard will be lost for all time...


{Wordtoid} There is no gramatical reason why "hanged" is only used for human execution while "hung" is used for everything else. It's just tradition.


Obligee is a funny word.


Name someone famous or well known that you have a comically distant connection to. For me: My friend plays table tennis with the uncle of Toby Fox (the Undertale dev).


Here's a fact that sound bonkers to me: The last Holy Roman Emperor died only about 80 years before my grandmother was born. I just had no idea the empire was that historically recent.


Totalbiscuit wrote publicly that he's planning for end-of-life since his cancer has spread again. Only 33. A shame. I didn't watch his stuff much, but I respect him. His WTF Is series has helped me plenty in the past.


Dr. Mel's Pro Windows Tip for Cool People: If you hit Tab+Windows Key you can make a new instance of your desktop with its own taskbar. Good for if you have like a shit ton of stuff open.


{Wordtoid} An "ærendgast" is an Old English term for an angel, made from two words still in use today: Errand and Gast. Errand used to mean a mission rather than a simple task, and a gast is an old term for a ghost or spirit.


It's the closest thing to Dismal Jesters we've gotten in a long time. I hope this keeps going. Got several good laughs from this episode.


Occams was born, and the screams of birthpains rose not from his mother but from the vocal chords of the unrelenting damned. At once all man remembered Pain and loss, the bilious sickness of Remorse, the press of Regret. At once, though it be forgotten...


{Wordtoid} "Secretary" has morphed its meaning a bit. Today it means an office administrator or assistant, or a clerk. It originally meant "one who deals with secrets", hence "SECRETary", and was extended to mean "one who deals with important things".
