Twisting Corridors is probably the worst content Blizzard has made for World of Warcraft. It is about an hour long and the power curve is such that you can get to the very end then get one shot by any of the bosses moves and get nothing for your time.


I am gobsmacked by how much pain a human body can generate. I keep thinking this injury has peaked and it takes me to whole new realms of hell. Be careful out there, your body has a horrible power.


I love how many people here have black cats. Sweetest cats I've ever known. That said our Calico puts up a commanding fight for that crown.


Gunpoint is done. Solid game! The last level in particular was a real treat. May come back to it someday. Two games down in three days. Won't keep that up now that work starts tomorrow...


Anyone here got New Dawn and an Xbox? Only got this left to polish it off. Would only take about 3-5 minutes each. If so hit me up sometime!


The reformat worked! I got Jurassic World running :D. I named my first Dinosaur Chiclet.


Computer is having terrible troubles lately. Thinking it needs a good ole reformat. Realizing only now that doing that on the 1st of the year is thematically pleasant.


I've posted a very simple contest for this month over on the dtoid forums. Link in the description of this qpost. I won't be plugging it more than once a week absolute tops. So don't forget if you like free stuff.


Poetically I'm at 940 instead of 1000 because 2 of the achievements cannot be completed until they patch the bugs related. But my feelings on Cyberpunk 2077 are mostly positive. I finished on a stupendous high note that I imagine helped.


I'm with Xeo. Cyberpunk is buggy but I'm enjoying it quite a lot. It isn't my GOTY but I've finished the main story* and liked it. The cyberpunk future is a miserable awful hellscape marketed as a utopia. The real world reaction to it is super meta.


Looking at qposts when you can't comment is a uniquely agonizing experience.


Been playing a lot of Gods and Monsters lately. If you enjoy a surprising amount of Greek jokes that don't explain the punchline to you I can highly recommend it. The game handles really well and looks stupidly nice. Nice upbeat experience.


Beat the final eff you dungeon of Yakuza 7. I find it really sweet how often Yakuza games say nice things about you (or thank you) for doing things in them.


Been a couple weeks (13 days) since I cut out social networks from my life. I find that my knowledge of the goings on in the world apparently hasn't changed but my stress levels have largely plummeted. Even as work gets pretty intense.


Early impressions of Yakuza 7 is that it is a charming, lovely, engaging experience filled with fun characters. While it would deeply offend weebs, the English VA is really good. Lots of great additional lines (no subs, so probably ad libbing).


On the same week as the PS5 being released I got a lifetime PSN ban from Sony for having a modded PS3 lol. They want to prevent piracy and the solution was blocking me from buying anything from them. The math checks out! Surprisingly not really bothered.


That spam bot going around the comments saying it bought an expensive car the moment it got a big paycheck has me shaking my head. That is fiscally irresponsible little bot. You shouldn't be blowing your money the second you have it.


Good god. My hands are not built for this shit anymore. Great game though.


I adore Arlo's reaction. Also, finally having seen it. Woo you can be the zombie. That would be my pick. That or Enderman. (Link in description since it looks broke for me on the post?)


I would suggest whenever something happens with a property that has millions of fans to just not be surprised by anything. When you have millions of people you end up with at least three or four unique opinions. Maybe five on a good day.


Playing that mobile mario kart for the pins. I haven't touched the controls once and the worst outcome has been 2nd place lol.


My positive feelings towards Mario 64 as a child seem to be only amplified as an adult. Every level has been either a joy or so short that it doesn't overstay its welcome. Controls are just as good as I remember. I honestly have no personal complaints.


Built some furniture today. Only broke one piece while doing so. A new record!


If I don't have to take any kind of bullshit survey for the Xbox I'm just flat out getting it at launch.


I'm not privy to how the DRM works for optical drive consoles. Is there anything (besides $$$) that stops these digital consoles from accepting any external optical (format appropriate) drive?

A lot has changed since the last time I was here. And yet if you slapped two pictures of me beside one another you'd be hard pressed to see them.

If you really enjoy following someone that is almost unbelievably inoffensive I'm glad to offer. It isn't that I avoid controversy I'm just genetically predisposed to being boring.

And that's that! I imagine there are other things but I'm forgetting them at this moment.
