So glad Nope is SO GOOD. Wasn’t a Get Out fan, big Us fan, and this was pure craft. Evidently Jordan Peele is an Evangelion fan. Projectionist’s view:


Porco Rosso turns 30 years old today and remains a stalwart fiber of my very being.


Grappling with the realization that, to my friends and colleagues, I am becoming recognizably known to be a JoJo fan.


Had some free time the other morning at work so I brought in something WARM to test some stuff in the theaters…


Frivolous question for those in the know: Is Kid Icarus Uprising worth ("worth" is so relative and personal, but bear with me) $80-90ish? I've sort of been struck by a real interest in it recently, and without a Switch port...


No lies told POINPY is one of the year’s best games. Shame it has the sorta weird Netflix Games stigma but Fumoto is a genius and I will follow. If ya got a phone and Netflix ya got POINPY! Pray for PC/console releases.


At the point where Elden Ring has me jumping at the sight of my mug


Witchfire is back. Witchfire is an Epic exclusive. The monkey's paw strikes again.


We talk a lot about how tense From Software’s boss fights are but really when a Souls game asks me to do some platforming is when I sweat.


After an unintentionally-thematically-linked double feature, I’ve made the discovery that 2005 was the Best Year for Video Games and am now going to chip away at some oddballs from that year for the rest of the year.


In kinda fun news, this week I started training as a projectionist! Which means I absolutely WON'T be splicing frames from horror movies into kids' trailers!


Started Elden Ring. (Also this particular view was like total Shadow of the Colossus deja vu!)


I have decided to embark upon a well-trodden but also merciless set of paths. (My first impression is that Elden Ring is probably Too Good and I think it may give me a stroke and so am daunted to play it.)


Stranger's Wrath had no business being that good. Besides some LAME combat gauntlets towards the end. Pure atmosphere. We need more WESTERN GAMES.


HEY DO YOU HATE VIDEO GAMES BUT LOVE FREE STUFF. Some Steam keys I don’t need in the comments! Unrelated (or is it?) curry shirt pictured.


Whenever I get to see the city from angles like this I just think of the Ninja Turtles or Spider-Man.


It’s Friday and we’re making Movies and I’m going to sleep and eat a lot this weekend.


Decided to play From Software's earlier masterpiece before getting to Elden Ring.


KATAMARI DAMACY TURNED 18 TODAY! One of the single most-influential works of art in my development as a human, and an endlessly wonderful game to revisit.


My Zoom meeting is half an hour later than I thought which gives me time to say RANKING OF KINGS IS WONDERFUL I LOVE IT ANIME MAKES ME WARM INSIDE and also that I have absolutely no idea what Video Game I should play next.


It's truly been a joy playing all of these Kirby games over the past few months but good lord I have murdered this tree so many times I am so sorry.


Killed so many goddarn albino monkeys and dudes with purple capes and Twizzler-red armor and shed a lot of blood and made puppets and smoky blood but also talked to a fish and overall had the best time ever. What to play NOW.

Sam. Sir Shenanigans. Not your daddy's kind of stupid. Can't decide what's for dinner. Big fan of dolly shots in movies, Japanese sweet potatoes, Hellboy, Indian food, God Hand, and Herman Melville. A pig's gotta fly.
