Longing Log, Day 6: No changes yesterday. Today I finally unlocked another area. At long last I have a pickax, aaaand my dude has no upper body strength. Apparently he needs oodles of time to harvest even 1 crystal. Good thing I have it. Yay?


Longing Log, Day 4: A new area unlocked, but only a small one. But it does introduce a sorta cool thing. My music is not actually improving yet. Read some Poe. Forgot how much fun Cask of Amontillado is to read.


Longing Log, Day 3: Came back and the clock advanced from 398 to 395 days since last night. Furnishing the room makes quite a difference. And the music I just made is a little better. The walk-to-room feature still incredibly busted and rarely works.


Came back to The Longing today to find the clock advanced while I was gone. Thank. Goodness. I was worried people would need 3 years or something, b/c the clock only moved while the game was running.


I'm going to jump into The Longing blind. If it's the greatest game ever made I'll see you all in 400 days in real time. Time for some virtual waiting!


Happy Birthday to Destructoid: still my favorite form of social media. Thank you all so much.


I just want to gush about how freaking clever and cool Loop Hero is. I keep finding more weird combos and odd rules and I'm increasingly digging what this game is putting down.


See what happens when a furry spends almost 10 years making their dream game from scratch, in Dust: An Elysian Tail. It's crazy how good that combat can be. #indietoid


I love that whenever people mention Tron Legacy, people are like yeah, Daft Punk and The Dude sure made a good movie. I think some other people showed up too.


For how much the first time through made me rage, I've gotten so much out of repeated runs of the Berlin stage in Hitman 3. It really gives you a long leash to mess around.


I just saw this knock-off of The Witness on the Xbox store and I'm actually happy people want to copy The Witness. I mean, it's got some new ideas, and looks way easier, but they clearly wanted to make The Witness and I don't blame them.


Just got my Series X, baby! Let's see if it really is...kinda the same but loads faster. I love that packaging now is designed for YouTube unboxing vids. It's so cool and adventurous now.


Merry Christmas Destructoid! I hope you have a fantastic weekend and much, much better new year.


My book blogs are up. I'm skipping movies this year. There's just not enough there. I saw Birds of Prey, Sonic, and 1917. Anyway, here's another video...


Okay, posting up my 2020 Switch stats.


The first of my end-of-year blogs is up. Have a video!


My blogs are coming. My top blogs are: Games, Music, Movies, and introducing at least one for Books. Stay tuned! And have a music video in the meantime!


Can't wait to play the bug-fixed Cyberpunk GOTY edition, where the cool punk is being crushed by quotations on the cover and I get all the Catwoman chapters.


It's official. My most played Spotify song of 2020 is Faith by The Weeknd. Also my most listened artist.


It's funny how terrified everyone in Destiny 2 is about ice magic. "Oh, the darkness will feed on your anger and selfishness. Beware, lest you lose yourself to it. Oh no!" Guys, it makes ice cubes. Chill.


Destiny 2 on Twitter hinted at a small live pre-expansion event, which they emphasized was small and no big deal. Destiny 2 has been at capacity for hours, well in advance. No pressure for this low-key soiree, Bungie.


I really appreciate how each debate has gotten structurally more difficult like in a video game. Next they should do American Gladiators challenges.


I watched an Among Us stream tonight and it was the first time one of these things truly entertained me. That game is 100% a psychopath training simulator. The implications of it's popularity are maybe kinda dark? IDK. But it's fun-as-hell to watch.


WHAT? Minecraft? When mayor Tinstle from Ooblets is right there and ready to throw down? Look at all that combat potential. Limited spots, Sakurai.


I've been playing No Man's Sky the last few nights and it's been fantastic. The mission progression, the environments, the space stations, it all feels so much better and cooler. If you have the game or Game Pass, absolutely check it out.


51 stars in. The people who talked up Mario 64 for decades look like sadistic assholes right now, but I can't stop playing it. Did people actually play this with a worse controller?


Every single-issue of Black Panther ever is free on Comixology right now. IDK how long. https://www.comixology.com/search?search=black+panther
