The nostalgia effect when you retype a game from a magazine after 30 years and the sprites don't have the same graphical flaws from the last time (extra pixels lit, ...): the game then just doesn't FEEL the same. Warts and all = the game's character.

 
 
 

My 'Theron as Carol Danvers' dreams have crumbled away like Brie :(

 
 
 

Also, haven't used Blender in ages, but I remember really liking it. I've been teaching 3DS Max for a Game Dev course, and now that I went back to Blender... holy crap, it feels as counter intuitive as it gets!

 
 
 

Went to check out if brazilians were flooding the French Pokémon Go announcement tweet, and my predictions were right. Nice to see so many people asking it but holy shit do they all really need to be THAT rude?


 
 
 
 

I CALLED IT! I CALLED IT!

Any-one who doesn't go to see Suicide Squad is a Racist. Any-one who has to ask why is also clearly a Racist and needs to educate themselves.

 
 
 

Yeah! 40 minutes into this mission in Guild Wars 2, I'm about to face the final boss! I've killed many dragons, I'm so fucking ready, YEAH! BRING IT ON BABY! *lost conection to server* ... It... Kicked me out of the game? I have to do it all over again!??


 
 
 

So Tara Strong was walking around Comic Con today dressed as Harley and absolutely nailed it. People apparently were asking to take pictures not even realizing it was her.


 
 
 

i am a total wreck right now... i sit down with my 8 y.o. niece and watched "Inside Out" for the very first time. And i barely could contain myself with Bing Bong final scene. Man, my feelings! "Who's your friend who likes to play? Bing Bong Bing Bong!"


 
 
 

So I'm playing the last splatfest, what might also be my last round in it. I have to say I'm both happy and sad. It couldn't last forever but it's been one hell of a ride. To all the good times, enjoy yourselves everyone.


 
 
 
 
 

Well, she's not wrong if she's only talking about P3. The Waifu Wars affected everyone.


 
 
 

I'm getting a real good feeling for this movie after seeing the new trailer.


 
 
 

Why does noone push in Splatoon?? They always seem content in just defending even when it's clear it isn't working.

Giving Brackish Water Jamboree a listen. Our boy Weslikestacos' band. It's kicking ass so far. My friend and my son are diggin' it too.


 
 
 

I was a guest on Gamertag Radio! Episode coming next week. We talked a lot about what Dtoid's like behind the scenes and what a publisher of the house of robot actually does, some favorite moments, what I think of #GG, virtual reality, adblock, and beer!
