Turns out this is what I needed to bottle that gaming lightning again.


Gaming has been a bit ho-hum no-go for me lately (even as wonderful as Sable is) but lots of comics on the menu... Taiyo Matsumoto's No. 5 is just blowing my mind. Saving further reading until I finish some other stuff.


I saw The Hayao Miyazakimobile in yellow today!


Happy birthday to GOD HAND, turning the big 15 today. Few games match its excellence; some Renaissance paintings match its beauty. It’s been called “perfect” by the scientific community. A warm blanket under which I invite you to reflect on this day


Was turned onto this, which is now in its final days on Kickstarter. This coming JUST as I’m getting back into Ghost in the Shell and cyberpunk, and in a year with Cruelty Squad… Demo is out on Steam apparently!


Pangs of indecision over whether to get WarioWare Friday. I *love* WW, but I’m feeling so content with my current slate! Not to mention Eastward and Sable so soon. Talk me through my indecision! Also I made peanut noodles with black rice noodles!


And now, a haiku: Reading a Hellboy/ Resplendent day of sunshine/ Oops, organs in trees


Started to doodle more and this morning this is all I've been obsessed with.


“Y’know van der Meer, oneuhthesedays yergonna wake up and BE a curry!”


Polluting your timeline with the Good Word that is Death’s Door, which is honestly a perfect game so far. Pothead is a treasure of a man to be stood beside for all of time.


Question for Dtoid artists!! I’m looking to start tooling around with (Blender, to start) animation and digital drawing software, and NEED a drawing tablet (proper terminology?). Any cheap recommendations? More deets inside. (Pictured: Me.)


I say the words "Looter Shooter" to myself, in my head or out loud as a joke in a Werner Herzog impression at least once a week.


So the demo for this might not have been excellent; there’s some refinement to the movement and UI that needs doin’. But GRIME looks like a weird, fungal, subterranean metroidvania, now coming August 2nd. Rock people and post-humans brawlin’!


Holy cow Junji Ito made a short manga for the upcoming (long-delayed!) Japanese theatrical release of The Lighthouse. That is SO COOL!


Spending the evening mostly playing tons of demos on Steam's Next Fest--might toss a loud opinion or two in the comments here if anyone cares!--but I'd IMPLORE you to check out Starstruck: Hands of Time! Been following for awhile and it is GOOD!


Hey YOU! Do you HATE video games but LOVE free stuff? Buddy have I got news for you! Step right up and claim a game from this month’s Humble Choice, (almost) everything up for grabs! Details inside, and just lookit these happy blueberries!


Jeez a guy goes to work for a day and comes home to find a release date for Elden Ring, a release date for Sable, and more Death Stranding. AND I just ate a Thick hamburger. Which is all to say, uh, holy cow.

Sam. Sir Shenanigans. Not your daddy's kind of stupid. Can't decide what's for dinner. Big fan of dolly shots in movies, Japanese sweet potatoes, Hellboy, Indian food, God Hand, and Herman Melville. A pig's gotta fly.
