BoB - Breath of Fire III

I had meant to write this for last month's BoB. But then time decided to be an asshole and the month ended. So here we stand with me seeing the new theme. Something about a forest. Well guess what, there are forests in this game. Ok. On wit...


Rico's April Contest Results!

Another month has passed. We enter now into a month that never knows if it is going to do something or not. I occasionally write semi-masturbatory qposts reminding people that I do contests monthly currently. Entering them is incredibl...


Rico's April TwitchTube Giveaway!

Hey Folks! Well, well, well. Here we are! My first exploration into the world of bribery went down without a hitch! I'm now officially done with twitch affiliate and can return to streaming what I want, when I want, without feeling lik...

I frequent Destructoid (as you probably know if you are reading this), one of the most popular concessions made on the website is that your waifu, whoever she be, is trash. This profound discovery was first unearthed by Torchman and ha...


The Cynicism of the Commons

This is something I've been thinking about recently. There is just about nothing that comes out of video games that lacks controversy. It can be taxing and makes most video game news just disinteresting. You can't get excited about anythi...

Maybe you are someone who likes stalking other people? If that's the case, here are some ways to keep up with me. It helps make me feel like a special snowflake and lets you bolster some numbers across your various networks. I'll be releasing an honest-to-goodness game this year. Probably within the next couple of months. So if you are interested in that, keep an eye peeled.
