The King in Yellow could not recall a source, nor recognise their current visage. Was it always this way, spreading the gospel since the sands formed, or had it merely forgot a prior life? If the theory troubled then its sunken face... [indecipherable]


A dimming bulb, The Yellow King looked upon what it was to be remembered as it could feel their being evaporating from minds. Was it necessary to appeal to people's happiness to remain, or could it warp fear, madness and melancholy to [indecipherable]


As pathetic as it is, one of the things I miss about recapping is not getting to post my "This week, I've been mostly listening to...". I don't know if anyone ever paid attention to what I posted there.


Pst. If ye be wanting a free Elite skin in Rainbow Six Siege... Ye'll be wantin' to play an online match between now and the 6th of March.


Not going to lie, finding out earlier today the protagonists of The Red Strings Club are a couple was pretty sweet. I honestly don't think there are many gay protagonists in games out there.


Stuck in the very peculiar position of trying to find the nicest way to let someone know their anime cosplay makes them look like a rent boy, and all I can think is when I see it is "...How much did we agree upon?".


Oh Seymour, you odd fellow.


The King in Yellow was surrounded by spawn, seeking to blubber obscene words in their own hideous languages. Fortunate to the bags of flesh, they had a guiding hand along the path to [indecipherable].


I can't decide if Ubisoft named the Far Cry 5 Mondo Collection after the company who made it, Mondo, because it's the surname of Vaas actor Michael Mondo. Far Cry has such a hard-on for Vaas that I do suspect it, but I could be paranoid.


Dennis probably understands.


Oh a special Nintendo announcement that will be a "new interactive experience" ?


"How was yesterday?"


The Yellow King emerged again with news, wearing a skin of malevolence, offered a hand and spoke of fruits. Its news were like piercing ripe red gems that unleashed a sweet flesh inside. The knowledge it bared was plentiful of [writing indecipherable].


They've released the box art for Dark Souls Remastered for the Switch, and I for one am pretty excited.


"The password matchmaking system from Dark Souls III is being implemented in the Dark Souls remaster."


I will be leaving the regular recap group and returning to being a reservist again. The longer story of why is in the comments. I'm sorry.


Got my Darkest Dungeon class beta nearly nearly done. Just this god damn localisation file is so long, about 200 lines long and most needs to be edited.


2018 recaps continuate next week fornightly my special handsome friends.


If I had to make my current illness into a physical form.


First draft of my top 10 and bottom 10 list has left it at 5.7k words. Would people prefer if I break this list into two separate articles or keep it like my prior Riobux Yearly Awards (who are of similar size)? Also, since sharing is caring:


So this is what classical acting looks like.


I'm working tomorrow and the day after. Just, fuck my shit.


Trying to work out if people would like to read a blog talking about my life in 2017. A smidge about video games (and video game journalism), a bit about Destructoid, some negative things, so I wouldn't blame if people wouldn't want that.


Need a lovely Christmas game to play for the season?


The blogs keep not wanting to load. I can tell what should be an hour recap job at worst is going to drag out to several hours.


Just choked on a Rainbow Six Siege match. Just fuck my shit.


About Riobuxone of us since 5:18 AM on 03.23.2013

Hey, I'm Riobux. I joined Destructoid a good deal back due to Podtoid when Jim Sterling, Jonathan Holmes and Conrad Zimmerman used to do it, and when Phil & Spencer did the Destructoid Twitch channel. I'm a Sociology With Psychology graduate who has a particular interest in videogame culture and the creation of videogames. These days I just punt out recaps, but you can also find me creeping around news story comments.

When I'm not here attempting to act like a civilised being, making odd jokes only I snigger at or being way too late with posting recap, I can be found on Bagogames attempting to ramble as a previewer/reviewer.

You may also find me working out how the hell the new strange world of social media on Twitter works at @Riobux.
