Thinking of creating my own fight stick using wood from the woodshop. Any button/joystick/other suggestions from those who have done so before?


Just found out that Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Monster Hunter World (my two most anticipated 2018 games) come out on the same day...Looks like I'm using a personal day for work on January 26th!


It's nights like these, when I know I have to run 22 miles tomorrow morning for marathon training, that I'm reminded of Pheidippides, the first guy to run the "marathon" -- who also DIED IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS.


Man, this was harder than I thought. Obviously a lot of Gen1 pokes, but WHATEVER.


Anyone else playing Path of Exile? Currently leveling up my second build -- a Charge Dash Trickster. Going to take a lot of work to make it decent, but I'm going to try!


I'll make a cblog post about this soon, but I made a videogame in 72 hours for Ludum Dare! My friend did the code work (aka the hard part) and I did just about everything else. Check it out! https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/39/space-email-4000


Starting the fifth dungeon in Persona 5. I hear it's awful?


I never thought I'd say this, but Ubisoft has won E3.


I can't be the ONLY person who un-ironically has a special place in their heart for Bubsy, right? Those games were probably some of my most played titles on the Genesis (note: I am not saying they are good).


god damn modern review sites, always giving everything the same scores. i remember when people weren't afraid to give 5s and below!!!!!1 -- In all seriousness, I think 2016 has been an amazing year for games and I can't wait to enter GOTY season


Man, I can't wait until everyone gets to experience Owlboy! Such a beautiful game.


In honor of Undertale's anniversary, here's a picture of a poster I have up in my classroom! Easily one of my favorite moments in the game.


So is Pony Island some sort of inside joke that I don't get? I can't even bring myself to finish it because of how....lame it is.


Booktoid! Got this approximately 15 minutes ago, super pumped to continue exploring this amazing universe.


Mad shoutouts to Khalid Eternal Nigh. Dude has an excellent GIF game and great community participation.


One way to win in SFV? Put your opponent on tilt going into the third round!


I haven't had much opportunity to play SFV yet (working 100% on the Stardew Valley review!), but I want to main Karin JUST BECAUSE OF HER THEME SONG!


There needs to be a Teacher version of Netflix, so when I want to show a video on WWII or Henry VIII to my students, the ads for their "awkward sex shows" don't immediately come up...


Wow, am I the first to mention that Mikey is easily the best turtle? I'm starting to question everyone here...


I didn't write a post about them, but some of my 2015 favorites were: Affordable Space Adventures, Curse of the NecroDancer, Undertale, Splatoon, and Rocket League (100+ hours). I very much enjoyed 2015 :)


I will likely finish Undertale today. I am so excited!! :D


Here's my classroom board today. Talkin' bout news and Halloween!


My first upload in Super Mario Maker currently has ~9% completion rate...I didn't think it was that hard? Feel free to judge for yourself: 5022-0000-002F-2E66


Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


If I can't use my ION Drum Kit on my Xbox One for Rock Band 4....I'm going to be very upset :(


Been playing Metal Gear Solid 1 for the first time. These boss fights are amazing conceptually, but quite frustrating mechanically. Mad props for doing this stuff during the PSX era.
