If Doom Eternal had Icon of Sin like in Doom 2, whose head would be inside?


Watching E3 has again been more fun than playing games.


I hadn't realized how bad I had gotten with games until I begun playing even Sword of Vermillion to stop playing bad games for the lack of more fun things to do.


Trying to work on my next retro game project, Trapped In. The next time I want to deal with matrix operations, I'll consider a different language than Z80 assembler.


Talk enough of something and they'll give in . "Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam" and all that . Which is why I've looked a bit too often what old Gundam games look like .


Last day before long-needed vacation, worried that things will come crashing down during it. Plus the lyrics are about as coherent as my mind nowadays.


People who hate content creation for games should create games that don't need much content.


There are bad jokes, worse jokes and jokes saying that the best of Rage 2 are on its streets.


Finished Mana Spark on Switch. Not a crazy long game with a limited pool of (still random) powerups. I imagine I would've liked it even without the discount price.


If I hadn't seen Lego Movie 2 Lego kits in the store, I wouldn't have any idea that Lego Movie 2 is a thing. Or was?


What is the difference between lootboxes and toys/collectible cards sold in blind bags?


Should I need to remember what "having fun" and "accomplishing something" feel like?


I was wondering if there was an ancient astronaut theory with mechas/giant robots around (I blame Torch's existence for making me think about this), then realized Transformers is pretty close to that.


One of the things warming my heart here is when I see my qtoid post with "PCX" in place of zero upvotes. Even if it is just because of feeling ill-founded smugness.


Endgame or New game+?


Looks like my AI optimiser routine reduced the speed periodically to one eighth rather than by one eighth... well, that's half a week of computation wasted. Bugfree, my code is not.


Surprisingly authentic-looking conversion of Super Mario Bros to C64. Some obvious slowdown, though.


No vertical screen orientation in Konami's Arcade Collection on Switch, or am I missing an option somewhere?


Having played Gradius so far only on MSX and NES, the arcade original on Konami's Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics feels very different. As in, I couldn't even get to the end of the first level with one credit.


MSXdev'18 results are out, and I agree on the winners of the classic series. My game ranked 7/12; pretty much what I expected.


I have spent some 140 hours with Gems of War (Switch), and I'm finally starting to play other games as well. Uuurgh.


So far the last of the music Kickstarter has wrapped up for me, with another (physical) CD of orchestrated Turrican music and another CD with new TFMX music by Huelsbeck and Brimble. Reason enough to go to the office on my holiday, I guess.


Dancing is dangerous, mmkay.


Made the mistake of trying to open my PS3 superslim and get the dust out. Gave up when I broke a shell piece so that I'll need tape or glue for it to stay up. But at least I gave Neo Contra, Gradius V and Afterburner Climax another go.


I've registered only a bit over 4400 km to Wii Fit U thru the Wii Fit Meter so far. I'm disappointed.


The reveal of Cadence of Hyrule got me to try out Necrodancer first. That didn't amount to a sale, though, since I had had from some GOG sale indeterminable amount of time ago. So... for whom is that a good thing?


At this rate I'll get the Labo VR kit. I'm a sucker for anything endlessoceany.


Looks like Snow Battle Princess Sayuki is coming to Switch. I'm not sure, but it looks like it has a lot to do (a straight port?) with Heavenly Guardian / Legend of Sayuki. I'll probably want to get it...


I shouldn't be this upset that a game called "Pine" has a stylised spruce or a fir as its logo. But I am.


How many of you have ever used a ball mouse? (Not trackballs but the ones with the ball under the mouse) And how many of you have used it in the past ten years?

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

On a hopefully long-term break from saying anything.
