I had a very packed, very fun morning! Oh hey, a bag!


Capcom. Capcom, how about an HD-Pixel remaster (yeah, Octopath engine, you can afford it) of Sweet Home.


...And now that I've watched the Spider-Man 2 (Playstation 5, and we're in the final inning) trailer I can speculate and talk about how I'm not immune from hype. Dammit.


I didn't catch the Playstation dealy but I heard some of the bigger news. KOTOR-R seems like the easiest money-and-good-will spinner that could be done. All they need to do is not touch the story or characters and they're golden.


*slams fists on table* This reminds me a lot of the recent South Park games and you know what? This could be really good. I stand by that too. I'm guessing Granpy Rabbit will be this game's Morgan Freeman.


Lame characters Aang and Korra are in Nick Smash Bros, but it's only a matter of time before Satchmo and The Gromble get announced.


Missed the JLPT registration deadline, but given how few available seats there were this December I'm not shocked. On the plus side, this gives me 10 full months to study instead of 3. This is why I'm a lot less active here.


My headache clearing up the moment I sip down a bit of coffee is probably something I should be concerned about.


SNES, GBA, PSP, Playstation, Steam, DS...I just keep buying and re-playing Final Fantasy IV and it's not even my favorite FF...I should import a JP GBA copy...What's that Steam, a new version is available to pre-buy?


The Suicide Squad would have been surprising if it was good, but I wasn't expecting it to be that good. I wasn't expecting to care about the characters either, and I certainly wasn't expecting to like them all. Very pleasant surprise (found a Zelda too!)


I ate a whole freezer-pizza, took a five hour nap, and may have messed up my sleep schedule. Good thing I'm off tonight.


I've been enjoying My Hero Academia and just started season 5. I strongly identify with Sun Eater and want him to succeed in all things.


This is the face of a spoiled, grumpy, girl who is upset that she couldn't have any of my Swiss roll.


Games like Euro and American Truck Sim are surprisingly engaging for me. I get the feeling that the train sim games would be just as engaging too, but the initial cost plus potential DLC costs can be pretty steep, not to mention the time investment...Or;


Shog's July 2021 Gaming Journal, only not

I moved this past month, and since things have been in a general state of upheaval I haven’t really prepared this month’s games journal. I’ve played games, I just didn’t follow through with my usual documentatio...


Band of Bloggers August 2021 Theme

Whether you love them or hate them I think we can all agree on these two aspects of games journalism; Review scores are awful, and review scores are very difficult to ignore. For this month’s Band of Bloggers prompt I’m goi...


Well...Destructoid <i>used</i> to have infinite scrolling. On the plus side I knocked out time trials and intense training in Episode Prompto. Just need to take out the Kaiser Behemoth.


The time trials in Episode Prompto are abysmal. Edit - Episode Ardyn is the best FFXV DLC by a country mile, and I'm only half an hour in.


I made croquettes! Not to sound too Maryland, but they tasted a little bland until I sprinkled some Old Bay on the 5th one I ate. I have other food on my "to make" list that I feel more confident about making now. Significantly easier to make food.


I made onigiri last night. I've tried making it a few times before but this was the first time it held together while I ate it. I stuffed it with tuna, it turned out really good.


I think I need to replace my 3DS battery. At least it waited until I got to the end of my current Metroid playthrough to start acting up. Also, somehow, I made it past Not-Nito in DS3 without the doll. Where the Hell is Crystal Sage...? NVM CS Ded lol


About Shoggoth2588one of us since 6:55 AM on 06.03.2013

Hello all! I'm Joe, from Maryland! I released five days before Enix launched Dragon Quest 3! I started playing games around the time I was 3, with some very early memories of myself playing Duck Hunt in my Dad's office and Golden Axe in an arcade at what might have been an airport (It was a weird memory). I'm mostly harmless so if you wanna talk to me, send me a message. I'll be around, making horrible puns though not quite as horrible as Gus' is able to do. I'll lurk on the Discord too and if you want to be my friend there, than come at me!
