I hope Mario is a secret racist in the next Tetris game.

 
 

The older I get, the more it seems like people think the stuff I don't work very hard on and am not at all proud of is great, and the stuff that I work hard on and am proud of is no good. It feels weird to be a Bizarro in your own world

 
 

I know the exact feeling that people who love Sonic Mania are having right now, and I want to have that feeling too, but everything I know about myself tells me I'd be bored as hell with that game.

 
 

Comic book fans! There is a special shout out to Dtoid in Image Comic's Sun Bakery #4, which reprints a comic that first appeared in the illfated Dtoid Magazine. It's really good! https://imagecomics.com/comics/releases/sun-bakery-4

 
 

As someone who played Wii Sports Boxing every night for months, I can say that Arms is... good! I plan to play a lot of single player then maybe go back online everyone once in a while.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QXyqk9flwk

 
 

Profound Waste of Time is like 95% funded! I'm helping to round up people to be potential stretch goal contributors. Any on your wish list? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/caz/a-profound-waste-of-time-a-gaming-magazine

 
 

Heeeeeeyyy that zine born from the Dtoid Community is on Kikcstarter now, joined by Yacht Club, D-Pad, Dennaton, Vlambeer, and a lot of other cool game devs and writers. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/caz/a-profound-waste-of-time-a-gaming-magazine

 
 

Happy Halloween! I recorded 4 Scooby Doo songs. 1 and a half of them turned out OK. https://jonathanholmesandfriends.bandcamp.com/album/scooby-doo-halloween-special-2016

 
 

Soooo, how about that Walking Dead season premier...

 
 

My Gotta Protectors review for Nintendo Force is the only one to make it to Metacritic. Wish it got more coverage. It's like if Hyrule Warriors but based on the old 2D Zeldas instead of the 3D ones. http://www.metacritic.com/game/3ds/gotta-protectors …

 
 

Finally going to bed, but you can AMA and I'll answer in the morning! Hooray!

 
 

I am playing AM2R right now and it's great. Will write about it and interview the devs for the next Nintendo Force. Also interviewed the dev of Axiom Verge and debated the merits of Federation Force in there. It's going to be a very Metroid issue!

 
 

I made this Turbografx16 style Jason tonight for some reason


 
 
 
 
 

One time my boss touched my butt while I was dressed as a bull

 
 

Crossy Road artist learned that Notch is a Nihilist that thinks "Words Have No Power" so he made this cute parody-tribute of the whole thing https://twitter.com/SunraHeadgear/status/736202696827404293

 
 

There's a stage in Rhythm Heaven 3DS where a small woman and a bunch of small monkeys throw pillows in the air and then take a nap. It sounds like Dale North singing the song and it's really good.

 
 

A lot of positive press for the new Doom. Still don't get why they embargoed reviews for after release. I'm sure there is a method to their... method, but I don't know what the heck it is.

 
 
 

All you catgirl fans will be happy in a couple months

 
 

I jungled a book. Best jungle I've booked in years. It had more books of eli than jungle to jungle and christopher booker was a god in it. https://i.guim.co.uk/img/static/sys-images/Environment/Pix/columnists/2011/10/13/1318501728755/Christopher-Booker

 
 

My 3DS with +3000 streepasses (including Reggie IRL) will no longer take a charge or turn on. I got Nintendo to transfer my account to a new *New* 3DS, but those streetpasses are locked in there. Any tips?

 
 

Heard a rumor about the next Zelda that will make some nerds really happy and others very mad.

 
 
 

I can't believe how long Pokken's single player is mode. A true test of endurance. They totally could have ended it just now, but instead were like "HOW ABOUT A NEW LEAGUE OF FIGHTS JUST LIKE THE LAST 50 FIGHTS?!?!" Also, I'm drunk.

 
 

The devs of Chasm are playing one of my favorite games ever right now. https://www.twitch.tv/discordgames

"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1

"The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1

"I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
