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

 
 

So far, FE is gets a hard recco from me because of how pleasant the rythm is. It's easy to take breaks and feel good about it because of the school calendar aspect. It really works well for my time budgeting.

 
 

Whenever I look up in a public bathroom and see a weird vent or a hole in a ceiling tile, I immediately think "that's where the perv cam is hidden"

 
 

What would you say you're unusually good at, either in games or real life. You dont need to be the best, just better than average. And don't lie or I'll know.

 
 

This is my lock screen, no fun allowed (real answer: I get sick of staring at the same thing and I'm too lazy to keep changing it so a plain black background is nice... also fuck bright colors on screens, ever)


 
 

We've really lost the thread on what the word meme used to mean, huh? Today it just means "image-based joke on the internet".

 
 

I connected my original NES to the same TV I used as a child. It had been many many years since any of this stuff was plugged in and turned on. Pics in the comments and a quick fun slowmo video of CRT magic.


 
 

Finished Timespinner. It's nice, but even I must remark that this game's story feels a little like Progressive Bingo.

 
 

Well gosh, I had no idea.


 
 

I would like it Dragon Quest Builders 2 came to PC, thanksthanksthanks

 
 

Vacation Mode: Enabled.


 
 

I used to wear this pocket watch before the clasp broke. I needed it for an old job that didn't allow cell phones and I still refuse to wear anything on my wrists.


 
 

Kirby inhalea a Ditto that's looking at another Kirby that inhaled a Mr. Mime

 
 

Honestly, part of the fun of my wordtoid posts is cramming in all relevant top-level info into 255 characters without relying on informal abbreviations. It might secretly be my favorite part of them.

 
 

{Wordtoid} Fast means both Quick and To Abstain From Food (e.g. Breakfast), but the root is the same: To Harden. This is easily seen in the word Fasten. Quick is derived on the notion of "running hard", the food sense comes from "hardening yourself".

 
 

What movie quotes do you say either out loud or in your head when certain things happen?
