DToid Community Extra Life Streams!

Extra Life game day is this Saturday!  Several community members are planning on playing, so I wanted to get a single place to view who is live and where.  If I missed you or if you want to add details, feel free to leave the...

 
 
 

Extra Life Game Day 2020 - Final Fantasy 7!

Back in May I did a no reason fundraiser playing Final Fantasy 13 for 13 hours.  Now that the official Extra Life day is upon us, I think it would be only appropriate to play Final Fantasy 7 for a total of 12 hours!  Unlike M...

 
 
 
 

"Early" thoughts on Warframe

Warframe is one of the most consistently monetized free to play games I have seen.  Want a new gun?  Five bucks.  Oh wait, you don’t have enough slots for a new gun.  We’ll sell you those slots for five ...

 
 
 

Cave In - an Experimental Card Game

Cave In I had an idea to make a card game the other day that plays similarly to Screw Your Neighbor combined with Cash And Guns.  Figured I would type it out to see if it makes sense, and unleash it on you all if you wanted to try...

 
 
 

Gushing about TROUBLESHOOTER

There is so much that I wanted to say about this game that in a review, but I wanted to try to write a 'professional' review because I had seen so few.  With that being said, a lot of the soul of things that made me love the game ...

 
 
 

Review: TROUBLESHOOTER: Abandoned Children

Fire Emblem with Seoul Sometimes there is just nothing going on at work or in my life, so I go and check out the upcoming section on Steam to see if there is anything I can get excited about.  I saw a bright yellow rectangle with...

 
 
 

FFXV vs FFXIII

I just beat Final Fantasy XV, and before that Final Fantasy XIII, so I thought it would be cool to do a side by side comparison of each part of the game with the other one!  I’ll try to keep things as subjective as possible ...

 
 
 
 
 

Game Pitch: 'Katamari Racing'

I saw a gif of someone glitching out in Forza the other day - the road suddenly disappeared underneath the car, and the car was suspended in air doing 600 miles per hour.  It got me thinking about how fun it would be to have a gam...

 
 
 

Borderlands and VR

Borderlands 2 is probably in my top 3 most played games.  I beat it once with each character on release, then played all the characters again with my brother, then I picked it up on PC later and beat it two more times, came back t...

 
 
 

Anal Beads and Video Games

This blog has been something that I have thought about for quite some time.  I think the revelation hit me when I was playing Crysis 2 on the 360, but it applies to so many different aspects of most of the games that I love:  ...

 
 
 

Outer Worlds Rantings and Ravings

  Elder Scrolls - like Zelda, but an RPG!  Fallout - Like Elder Scrolls, with guns! Outer Worlds - like Fallout, in space!  I like Skyrim. I really like Fallout (even 4!), and I thought New Vegas was one of the best.&nbs...

 
 
 

taterchimp's 2019 Games Played and Life Blog!

In previous years I have looked and evaluated each game that I have played and given a brief synopsis, but this year I wanted to do something a little bit different.  You see, 2019 is probably one of the second worst years that I ...

 
 
 

Fire Emblem Hard+ Difficulty Brainstorm

Three Houses is my first Fire Emblem game, and from playtime alone, I adore it.  I beat it just outside a week on my first playthrough, and again in just over a week on my second.  The character building is great, and seeing ...

 
 
 
 
 

Hey, I beat Earthbound

Emboldened after playing Secret of Evermore, I decided to try again to get use out of my SNES and old games.  I started up Earthbound, then bounced over to Final Fantasy 3 and boy do I have opinions on THAT game. So I went back to...

 
 
 

Majora's Mask Retrospective

I never played Majora’s Mask, but was always somewhat interested.  It was a bit of a blind spot for me, as I didn’t want to buy it when I had an N64, and as I got older, I didn’t want to play it because the 3 day...

 
 
 
 

Serious Sam 3 VR is my most played VR Game now

Lately I have been going on in qposts about how much I like Serious Sam 3 VR, so I decided to go into more detail than  just gushing about how great it is. It is the full game ported to VR, with improvements only.  This feel...

 
 
 

Five Hit Fighters: We want you (to playtest!)

A not-so-short while ago, I came up with the idea for a video game:  what if there was a tournament fighter where you didn’t have to worry about any of the inputs?  Instead of fumbling with controls, anyone would have t...

FF 12: The good and bad

Good: Right off the bat, the game looks really good.  The first cutscene was on par with the current Final Fantasys in terms of visual fidelity, which is pretty great.  From what I have heard, your mileage may vary on this, b...

 
 
 

You not cooking: making chicken soup

What do you do with a chicken carcass?  A question asked since time immemorial.  Turns out, you make some bomb ass soup.  Full disclosure, this is a drunk blog after a shit week, so buckle up, homestuck. So last time, I ...

 
 
 

Cooking blog: At least I have chicken

I don’t really know why, but I have been bit by the culinary bug lately.  I always have had some kind of interest in it - there is something soothing about the ‘ritual’ of a recipe.  I don't know if its the ...

 
 
 

Games Completed in 2017

These are the games I played in 2017.  This is supposed to be a foreward, but then I started drinking and wrote this last.  So technically, this is a drunkblog, yaaaaaay.  Anyway, enjoy. Aragami:  A+ I love love lov...

 
 
 

The Cost of the SNES Classic By Game

The alternate title would be "Justifying spending 80 dollars on a raspberry pi, with Nintendo's fabled seal of quality" Marvel at its seal like qualities So I went out to Amazon and found the listing for every game (except Star Fox 2, ...

 
 
 

Thoughts after beating XCOM 2

I finally beat XCom 2.  I wanted to provide a ‘review’ but I remember writing a blog a while ago where I said that user reviews are bullshit, so I wanted to run down some talking points about the game that I found out ...

I also covered the progress of building my own gaming PC. I had no experience, and overall, it wasn't all bad! If you are on the fence about it, I suggest you read about my efforts

The series never had a part 3, because I was having waaaaay too much fun playing it. Suffice to say that it does alright these days.

Thanks for stopping by my blawg!
