Finished the Switch version of Link's Awakening tonight. It is with both sadness and joy that I say that it has replaced A Link to the Past as my favorite Zelda game ever.

 
 

"Bioshock" is trending on Twitter. I ask myself "Oooh, is this BioShock 4? Or maybe a Switch port/collection?" Nope, it's one of the PS Plus free games this month...

 
 

Got a Marvel Arcade1up just before Xmas and finally got around to modding it. Put an Optiplex 780 in there running Retroarch, swapped the sticks for Sanwas w/ octagonal gates and Happ buttons. Lots of ROMs, lots of systems, lots of fun!


 
 

Playing through Link's Awakening has me hoping Nintendo makes top down Zeldas a regular thing. I love BOTW and Ocarina/TP before them, but there's just something magic about playing the classic style with modern graphics and controls.

 
 

Adam Vinatieri is undergoing season(probably career) ending knee surgery. He's the last active NFL player that was in a 16 bit Madden game.

 
 

One thing that I've always hated about even the best RPG video games is the lack of a non-stealth equivalent to lock-picking. I like playing in character, and a brute force character isn't going to pick a lock, so let me bash it open with a blunt weapon.

 
 

I think I'm going to get a Switch Lite. I'm a bit disappointed by the complete inability to dock at all, but I do play primarily in handheld mode, and I like having an actual d-pad. It'll be nice to have my own Switch I don't have to share with the kids

 
 

I'm secure enough in my masculinty to say I have loved the hell out of the IDW Jem & the Holograms comics. Nearly done with the series, and I'm bummed that it's almost over.

 
 

Kenshiro: You've grown so thin, Toki. Toki: *still has arms like twice as big as my legs*

 
 

Binged all 6 episodes (+ the pilot) of The Shivering Truth. WTF did I just watch?

 
 

1999 Me: LOL, no I don't play Pokemon - I'm not in kindergarden. 2019 Me: Kids, get off the Switch - it's my turn to play Pokemon.

 
 

My kids are now into Pokemon, and my son is obsessed with Mr. Mime to the point I think he's going to start a religion based on him. Heh's been extolling the virtues of Mr. Mime to me and his sister, trying to get us to catch one and put him our parties.

 
 

I got my son Lego DC Supervillians for Switch for Christmas, and this is his first Lego game that he's playing primarily on his own, and it's KILLING me to see him buy characters before unlocking the score multiplier bricks.

 
 

Heeeeeeelllllllllllppppp! My son just saw an eShop ad for Ark on Switch and now he's begging me to buy it for him.

 
 

LEGO Hobbit is free on Humble Bundle today if you want a semi-decent unfinished game.

 
 

I've been dreading the day Stan Lee was going to die for a long time now. I knew it was coming sooner or later a few years ago when he started scaling back his convention appearances. RIP Stan and thanks for making the world more exciting!

 
 

Crap, I hope my kids don't realize there's a Paw Patrol game coming to Switch this week.

 
 

Okay NOW I'm excited for Smash on Switch.

 
 

I just discovered Junji Ito a couple of weeks ago and now I feel like the preceeding 39 years of my life has been a complete waste.

 
 

RIP Leon White, AKA Vader. One of the best big men in the history of pro wrestling, this tough sun of a bitch wrestled a mach with a broken orbital, and his eyeball literally hanging out of his head.


 
 

LinkedIn just recommended I check out jobs recently posted at Konami. Disappointed to see there's no Pachinko machine tester openings - I feel like that's my true calling in life.

 
 

So was anyone else disappointed during the E3 direct when they showed the left and right sides of the GameCube controller that it didn't turn out to be GameCube joy-cons?

 
 

Word has it that Skyrim will be playable on your PipBoy in Fallout 76.

 
 

Looks like Best Buy has phased out Gamers Club Unlocked just as my membership was up for renewal. Amazon Prime is the only option left for discounts on new game, and only if I pre-order.

 
 

I pre-ordered the Spider-Man PS4 game yesterday despite not owning a PS4. I'll pick one up sometime before it launches, just trying to figure out if the Pro is worth it since I don't see myself investing in a 4K TV any time soon.

 
 

Sort of want Sea of Thieves, but man do I hate interacting with people in online games and I don't think it'll be fun as fun solo.

 
 

I'm actually entertaining the idea of trying my hand at making a game. I've got an idea that I've been wanting to see someone make for a LONG time, realized it's not going to happen, and might just make it myself.

 
 

Finally, something is happening with Casca after her being catatonic pretty much all of my adult life. I can't wait to see how this series ends 50 years from now!


 
 

I recently subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, and I fucking LOVE IT. I'm currently reading Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Amazing Spider-Man and Uncanny X-men starting from the very beginning. I can't wait to get to Claremont's run on X-Men. *squeel!*
