Happy birthday Vxxy I love yooouuu big smoochies

 
 

Tried my hand at 3D modeling for the very first time! It was a lot of fun, even with all the trial and error. The program is Nomad Sculpt for Android and iOS.


 
 

Finally had the chance to play more RE3 and I love it! It's not quite RE1/RE2 Remake or RE7 or Revelaitons, but it's definitely up there for me. Definitely more action-y than RE2 but not nearly as much as Rev or RE4 so far. Also made a new sewer friend!

 
 

Having to go to Steam and GOG to see reviews and tech support threads because it's not covered by any major outlets and EGS has no system in place for forums or user reviews is the peak Epic Game Store experience.


 
 

Have approximately $50-60 in Steam wallet gifts/credit. Would Horizon Zero Dawn and Control be a decent use of my funds? Both are GOTY. 🤔

 
 

Just woke up from a dream where Breath of the Wild 2 was revealed to be a top-down game with stock Unity assets, but everyone was still talking about how amazing it looked and when I said it looked bad Triggerpigking drove to my house and beat me up.


 
 

I saw this in a server I'm in and wanted to make sure it got to Occams.


 
 

I'm genuinely curious, what's the appeal of stuff like Google Stadia or Geforce? When many major retailers and even first parties like Microsoft offer PCs and consoles on subsidy for less than $30 a month, would anyone pay so much for games you don't own?

 
 

How the hell is the EGS still this pathetically dogshit? What happened to the roadmap? What an enormous piece of shit software.

 
 

Had a startling realization today and suddenly it all made sense.


 
 

At Kerrik52's request, I played the original Devil May Cry! Just beat it today. I wasn’t expecting to, but I had a really great time with it! It was cheesy as hell and the gameplay actually aged really well. Definitely going to try the rest of the serie


 
 

Thanks to Kerrik52, InquisitiveRavenclaw, and everyone who recommended PSUs and wattage calculators in my previous qpost, the FrankenPC is once more alive and quieter than it was the day we built her! I can’t thank you guys enough. Love this community!


 
 

I want to thank Kerrik52 and InquisitiveRavenclaw for buying me a replacement power supply for my PC. This PC got me through some of the worst moments of my life, and it dying on me felt like a punch in the gut. I can't tell you how much this means to me.


 
 

Hey everyone! The PSU fan in my gaming rig gave up the ghost yesterday and I was wondering what some good brands or models were. It’d need to be ATX and between 400-450W. Any help would be appreciated!

 
 

I've been playing a metric fuck-ton of classic-style roguelikes. Like actual roguelikes modeled after Rogue. They're absolutely wonderful and brutal and have been kicking my teeth in. Been thinking of doing a blog about my love of the genre, possibly.


 
 

And just like that, another game's off the list! This time it was ZombiU. Absolutely phenomenal game, and a true underrated classic. Hot on the heels of Cold Fear, Dead Space, RE Remake, RE Rev, Dying Light, Alien: Isolation, and Metro Exodus to boot.


 
 

I absolutely loathe how long Origin and the EGS take to update. Uplay and Steam are a pain in the ass, but they have the common decency to not have huge-ass updates that take ages on my shitty internet. Wish more games were DRM free or on GoG.

 
 

Been playing Dead Cells on my iPad and it’s a lot of fun! Giving me Rogue Legacy vibes which I really appreciate. I’m still awful at it, but I’m getting better, and being able to take it with me is appreciated too. (Also, it’s absolutely gorgeous!


 
 

Spent Memorial Day weekend making a tiered herb planter for my mom's garden. She found some she liked online but they were all handmade and very expensive, so I told her I'd make one for her. Ended up being only $40. Not bad for being out of practice.


 
 

As much as I get frustrated with the sub-par user experience of the Epic Game Store, I have to remind myself that it could always be worse. It could be the Rockstar launcher. I just wanna do my Red Dead Online dailies, dammit. Image related.


 
 

Man, Metro Exodus is more than worth the $10 I spent, but I'll be damned if the Epic Game Store client isn't a ginormous piece of shit. The QOL features I'm missing really make me miss Steam, and that's pretty damn bad, lol.


 
 

A huge thanks for all of the birthday wishes both yesterday and today! You guys are the best and I hope you're all managing to stay safe out there.


 
 

I just realized I never posted an update on my art recently, so here's a drawing I did for our very own wonderful, macro-loving microbiologist Gamemaniac3434.


 
 

I cannot wait until I finally get a job and make enough money to escape this irredeemable hellhole of a country.

 
 

Since we can't afford Resident Evil 3 remake, Kerrik52 and I have been doing a Resident Evil marathon. I've been doing RE2 Remake and RE1 Remake and he's played RE2 1998 and Code Veronica. Code Veronica is dumb as shit, but it was 100% enjoyable schlock.


 
 

Drawing is simultaneously the most self-affirming and miserable experience. But I've been doing a bit here and there recently and this Lotte drawing is the most recent. Bonus art in the comments!


 
 

The pandemic cleaning out grocery stores could not stop me from finding bread to make eggs in a hole. Learning to cook has been a metric shit-ton of fun. Eat shit, coronavirus!


 
 

Eugh. It's a circus out. Yesterday they found covid-19 like 15 miles away and now people are acting like a bunch of nutcases. Ran down to the store to get a box of tissues for my allergies and bread for toast tomorrow. All sold out. Bleh.

 
 

Just wanted to come out of lurking to wish our very own robot pal Vxxy a happy birthday. Have some cake for me, buddy!


 
 

Although a lot of people overlook it, I think my favorite advancement this generation has to be the rise of minimal/contextual HUDs. Having more room outside bars and numbers for the game to shine really makes me feel like I'm part of the world.
