Some typecast dark knights as edgelords. I prefer to be referred to as a brinkbaroness or vergeduchess, possibly accepting brimdame or marginmarquise.


 
 

He is Geralt of Rivia. He has a silver sword for monsters, a steel one for assholes. He goes through more steel swords than silver ones.


 
 
 

Picked up SWitcher III. Definitely not that great for home play, its miles better visually elsewhere, but it looks nice in portable mode and I'll get so much more out of it as a portable game. Can't exactly bring my laptop to work as easily.

 
 

What Astral Chain lacks in story and character,it makes up for in visual design and unique gameplay. There's a little Okami and NierAutomata in there, too. It also feels like they're competing with FromSoft on raising stakes as you progress.


 
 

I finished Link's Awakening last weekend. So glad this got remade so others could enjoy it for the first time.


 
 

That it's even a question whether or not it's okay to fire someone for being LGBTQ is absurd. It's wrong to fire someone for that. But in the trash fire that is present-day America, SCOTUS will be considering it today. Stand by your LGBTQ friends.

 
 

For some reason, I designed my vampire in Code Vein to suggest people are bad at killing her and instead add to her nail/rivet-based body mod aesthetic.


 
 

Okay, I caved and got Code Vein. Shift just does such great character creation modes.


 
 
 

I hope this isnt Chris's blood. Kainé, you go on ahead. I'll be studying... this.


 
 

I tried to rationalize Code Vein, but then played the demo for the character creation, created a cute cybergoth vampire and upon realizing I have plenty of games like this to finish, put it on my Black Friday list.

 
 

Got all the main paths done in Nier Automata. Definitely one of the best games of the generation.


 
 

On the C path of Nier Automata now. The game haa an interesting sense of pace and getting to see the story from different character perspectives has made for a good time.


 
 

Google's answer to Apple Arcade is the exact reason I've been against "Netflix/Spotify for videogames." You own nothing and developers get very little unless they make a timesink. Not to mention, it makes devs even more faceless & publishers like that.

 
 

Bloggers Wanted will be returning this month and ahead of October to give extra time for the topic. Pic unrelated, I just liked it.


 
 

Playing Nier Automata in preparation for the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse raids in FFXIV. I like the customization and the weird juxtaposition of themes, but hate the corpse retrieval mechanic that threatens the loss of your chip build.


 
 

I closed the FFXIV Self Destructoid server this morning mostly due to my failure to grow it as well as inactivity. Plus once you join the game you kinda find your own guild and get sucked into their Discord. So it was a nice, but really redundant, idea.

 
 

I've mostly been messing with character creation in various games all day. MHW Iceborne let me make my character tired of it all. She looks how I feel on Mondays.


 
 
 

Finished my Dark Knight's Cronus Lux greatsword in FFXIV, named for Kronus, the king of the Titans and god of time. And also because it glows. Kylo Ren wishes his lightsaber was this cool.


 
 

It's been a rough week. Seeing this made my day, though. I'm gonna have to track this issue down.


 
 

Hello Dark Knight my new main. Tendonitis won again. There will be much less Monking. I have to scale back the punching. And now I must embrace The Blackest Night. A pure delight, as well as the sound of Quietus.


 
 

The reviews are in. My Hollow Knight Scarab's Grotto tee has a 100% approval rating from co-workers, friends, gaming strangers, family and even people who don't know what it is and just think it's pretty.


 
 

Kevin Smith is directing and writing the new He-Man cartoon. So now it will just be Adam and Skeletor arguing about Star Wars. And then they fuck.

 
 

Playing Doom 3 and wow, no wonder this place went to shit. People just leave passwords everywhere for anyone to find.

 
 

I developed tendonitis in my left hand so I've had to scale back gaming a little and rest as much as I can since we're in our busy season at work. It stinks because I wanted to do Eden's Gate savage-tier raids in FFXIV, but casual play is better for now.


 
 

Finally settled on a new look, just shifted away from red to various shades of purple. I spent lots of gil at the stylist NPC constantly changing my mind. He bought a yacht later, I think.


 
 

I have chosen my side. I was already leaning Black Eagles, but then I looked up the romance options and it supported my choice.
