Saw Bone Tomahawk last night. Good film. Not a movie to eat dinner to... it has maybe one of the most disturbing scenes of violence I've ever seen.


The Big House 9 Melee tournament was insane. The tourney scene for this game refuses to stay the same, 14 years later.


{Wordtoid} Cubicle is not related in any way to the word Cube. It comes from Latin just means an apportioned space, and originally referred to bedrooms, specifically. Cube comes from Greek and refers to six-sided dice.


The humor is Borderlands 3 is fine. I don't get all the backlash, it feels pretty misplaced.


They really de-Ellen Paged Ellie in the next Last of Us game lol


If I'm a gramar-bastard about anything, it's the use of "less" and "fewer". Less is for things of proportion, fewer is for discrete numbers. In other words, if you can separate and count the thing, use fewer. Less water, fewer cups.


You know what's really satisfying. Take a game you know super well, go to youtube and search its name with "longplay", then set the speed to 2x. Something about that is just so satisfying to me.


I'm afraid it's going to get extremely lost in the mix, but Blasphemous is so dang good. The world building it does is clearly done with more effort that most games bother to do, and I will always appreciate that.


What's the opposite of H?


I had a dream where I woke up from a short coma and Jim from the Office was president. And he was selling a brand of cigarettes (?) called Tower cigarettes, and on the box was a quote "suffocated by the abyss". #Darksiders2 ...?


Banjo Kazooie from early tests is quite a solid character, and for a change it seems like one I'll actually want to play. I dunno if I got lucky downloading it early because servers are in maintenance mode now, but so far I'm liking what I got


Oh, hello log-in page. See you next Tuesday!


If you forgive the tragically forgettable name, Remnant: From the Ashes is a very good game. It's got some mid-tier production values, but otherwise it's a very satisfying execution of a third-person shooter Soulslike.


I'm in love with Blasphemous so far, thanks to the demo. This is a game world almost tailor-made for my tastes in fantasy.


Little did Man know that when they first took to the skies, the skies would try to take it back.


Started Mutant Year Zero thanks to Tim Sweeney's Humanitarian Game Fund, and I gotta say this game hates to be played. I feel personally targeted by this game's non-existant margin for error. *keeps playing*


You know what people don't say anymore? "Super market". At least not that I've seen. The idea of the super market was like the original retail boogeyman.


When I die, I want my skeleton mounted in front of my videogame collection with a puzzled posture and a plaque that reads "I'll find something to play eventually".


{Wordtoid} Why doesn't Livelihood mean "the state of being lively" instead of "aspect essential to your lifestyle"? Because it was originally the Middle Englsih Livelode, from Live- (life) and -lode (course or path, same as in lodestone).


{Wordtoid} Quickie this time, because I see this error occasionally. It's "utmost", not "upmost". Ut- prefix is the same as in the word Utter, meaning Outer in the sense of "to greatest extent".


Anyone else think the weird subtle border on this website was burn-in on their desktop monitor?


If you were a fire emblem character, what would your death/defeated quote be?


I had no idea OCRemix did a Skies of Arcadia album last December. The remix total is way better now than it was with one dumpy remix of the Horteka town theme from 2004... lol http://arcadia.ocremix.org/


It's dat time again. Evo tyme.


Sakurai just very slyly added some real brutality to Quick Play in Smash. If your rank drops below Elite, it kicks you out and won't let you rematch your opponent. Ouch.


All the early labbing with Hero in Smash Ultimate has assuaged some fears avout being OP. He could be a contender, but not a show stopper on his own and that's good news.


Ok, I found a thing I don't like about the new FE game. That god awful quasi dance remix of the battle theme with the overdone to death progressive beat garbo, ah! It was fine for like, an hour.


Dtoid Writers: Do you call it a "lede" or a "dek" or something else? This seems to change all the time lol
