Please enjoy this amazing Japanese metal band. I know i did. I was just looking for some group _ inou, found here https://youtu.be/w%20


What a whirlwind of a video game news week. Lots of crazy announcements, and the loss of Sony Japan Studios? What's next, Nintendo set to buy Disney? They got theme park money now, once covid clears up.


Did xbox live shit themselves? Can't seem to log in


Psycho Dream is a bizarre 2d platformer, but I kinda dig it. I have no idea what the story is, but I saved a girl from a moth? Check it out on the SNES switch online app.


I'm really excited by the new Companions Update in NMS. I found so many stupid creatures, I wanna gather the lot and be the ultimate I ever will be. Look out universe I got a gang of rolling sentient balls with me!


Wally's Wonderland was a fun film. It makes no reference to FNaF despite clearly being inspired by it. But Psycho Goreman was aux much better film


Damn. All this time I had thought Him Cummings did the voice for Yao in Milan, but I've been livingcin a lie! He is in fact voiced by the great Harvey Fierstein. Me ashamed.


Man I love my dirty leaf water (tea). bigelow lemon life steeped with green tea classic is a solid choice


I've been playing Super Mario 64 on my Switch, and i gotta say: This game sucks. As I'm playing i kept thinking to myself how much better Banjo-Kazooie, dunno if its the Switch ports fault or the original game, but Mario moves like ass.


Anyone know a good ergonomic gaming mouse that allows one to use it sorta "vertical" so the wrist is not twisted like it is with a regular mouse? My carpal tunnel is getting to me


happy g-hog day yall. Dont drive angry


I love how It's Always Sunny is both the most politically incorrect show on TV but at the same time one of the MOST progressive shows ever.


In the midst of all the BS at the Capitol, trump, covid, and the impeachment, at least joe the pigeon will not be euthanized


#Suncatoidday Me with my two homies, Valentine in the foreground, Peppercorn in my arms, sometime before xmas


Where are the weed video games? games about: smoking weed and earning money to smoke more weed, the head shop tycoon game, the weed empire games, the game where you get to be the annoying weed dealer that comes late all the time. Where can i find these?


Died this morning https://twitter.com/schmoyoho/status/1347053742521262082?s=20


good vibes and feels to everyone out there, all across the world. While bad shit is happening, don't forget the good stuff out there "The world is chaos, be kind"- Michelle McNamara


Dunno what's more funny. Pence telling trump no to reject the electoral votes or trump supporters/rioters calling the police "traitors" when pepper sprayed in the face by the police in the Capitol.


New year's gaming resolution: beat some of the new games I bought/received for free over the holidays. Full list in comments


How are y'all spending NYE? Mine might mostly be spent doing end of year inventory at work, hopefully I can be out before midnight. Then I'll spend it with da missus and maybe Sam Porter Bridges.


My wife, outside of the 2 zelda games i got here, also received ARMS and Super Mario 3D All-Stars. I did not get a game for xmas per se, got some cool swag like a dope High Sprits Shirts sweatshirt, a battletoads pin, and most awesomely, a Ukele Bass.


i started playing Blasphemous, early xmas present from my main gaming buddy. Weird, religous world:love it. it's a little too much like Dark Souls. Also, i gained a cheevo only 24% of the playerbase achieved in the 50+ mins i played? do yall not riposte


Don't tell my wife, but she's getting a very Zelda Xmas. Age of Calamity and Cadence of Hyrule!


My Game of the Year has been World of Horror. It's everything i love in a game: Replay value, interesting story, challenging game-play, turn based combat, stat and inventory management, and beautiful art. There are still many mysteries for me to solve.


Tyranny is pretty fun. I snagged it during the free drop at epic. It is not a perfect game, but I like the concept and conflict it provides. Basically boils down to ruling based on fear always divides, never unites


Anyone remember what they were doing 16 years ago today? I know I was shaking with anticipation over WoW getting released the next day. I know that game has gotten a lot of meh over the past decade, and Blizz became a shitty corp, but I did love that game


Wtf Blue Point. Why would you rename the awesome Red Hot Demon's Soul to "Searing Demon's Soul"?!? What an unnecessary change.

My favorite games meld music, art, and gameplay to enhance one another, elevating the product to something beyond mere "consumption"; it's an experience. Not everyone will like them, but they do gain a passionate following. Sorry if anything I said sounded pretentious, I am trying to be sincere. I love music and art, I've dabble in both for over 20 years now, so I appreciate games that put love into their art assets, animations, character design, level design, music, sound design, storytelling, and voice acting, even if the gameplay is simplistic (as long as it's fun!). These games also tend to feel nice- the control has a certain snap to it, enhanced by the visual and audio cues. This list may be biased towards my adolescence and childhood favorites from the SNES and N64/PSX days, so bare with me: you will see a lot of retro favorites. If your favorite is not on the list, it's probably because i didn't play it as a child/adolescent, or as an adult, for that matter.

In a somewhat random order:
Chrono Trigger
Super Smash Bros Melee
World of Warcraft (Classic/Vanilla)
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Banjo Kazooie
Katamari Damacy
Shadows of the Colossus
Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Meat Boy
Donkey Kong Country
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Human Fall Flat
World of Horror
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Super Mario Odyssey
Metal Slug 3
Tokyo Jungle (an odd one, for sure, but i love it so)
