In happier news, Peacemaker is fucking golden. The intro is just *chef’s kiss*


Welp my mom has a “slow moving blood cancer” and is on chemo for the second time in a few years. Prognosis TBD. Thanks for nothing, 2022.


Game 1 of 2022, like some others - Death’s Door! Really lovely game, enjoyable, took about 9.5 hrs at 89% completion. No desire for postgame but loads of extra content still. Very recommend.


Awww shittttt now we Dtoid fireteaming out here.


It's the first week of January, which means Pat's posted his (checks notes) 2020 reading list in the cblogs! Look, bear with me. I'm trying! I have a 2019, 2020, and 2021 gaming blog to write still, and my 2021 reading blog. DONT RUSH ME.


Free code in comments for Jedi Fallen Order. EA Origin. Fun game!


Solo setup of the LG C1 65” was goddamn terrifying and took 2 full hours - probably half of that just staring at space and sweating my face off. Setup will have to wait til tomorrow. Goddamn that was stressful 😂😂😂


I lost a lot of my positivity and joy in 2020/2021, and my resolution is to get that back somehow. I’m not sure what that means but I struggle with being true to myself and saying what I want to the people in my life…so it’ll be a real one.


Happy or unhappy New Years, everyone. Fingers crossed for 2022. At least we’ve got each other 😂🤷🏻‍♂️


Here’s my top 5 games I beat this year in order. I completed half as many games as in 2020 but played much longer ones this year. Also Halo mp rekindled my love of competitive mp and also absolutely prevented me from finishing GotG this year 😂


Thanks everyone for all the amazing help and suggestions. I ended up nabbing the LG C1 and soundbar setup Squirrel linked me. Can’t wait to set this up on Monday 😬😬😬 Current tv is from 2005 so it’ll be a big upgrade. Edit: 2015, not 2005.


Any recommends for a 65” 4k tv? Was looking at Samsung AU8000 but the in-speaker sound is apparently shit. I guess if I’m spending the $ I can also get a sound bar or something 🤷🏻‍♂️ Got Apple TV so it doesn’t have to be overly *smart* -


Hit my first DNF book in a long time, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, by Alix Harrow. I won’t blow it up but just not for me. Very well marketed, beautiful cover, very purple prose. Couldn’t make it past 100 pages.


If you’re an adult actress meeting a Vice President from Pierce & Pierce and want to know how much my apartment cost -


Anyone playing Riders Republic? Looks pretty fun but not sure of the *mileage* (pun intended).


Enjoyed some surprise Halo Infinite mp w/ @ThisIsMyBoomstick last night. it was 3am here 😂 but was awesome to play together even if I don’t know how squadding up works lol. Kicked some Tactical Slayer ass. Cool how friends are a different color


Merry Christmas and happy holidays / happy season of whatever anyone wants to celebrate. I know sometimes this time is fraught with emotion, perhaps loneliness - I’m grateful for all of you and whoever needs it, Pat loves you and is here for you.


Welp, had to cancel basically all holiday plans due to a COVID scare. Maybe at least this’ll mean more time for movies and games at home 🤷🏻‍♂️ Bummer to not get to see family this holiday still :(


Is $29.99 the price point that brings me back to Sekiro JUST for the final boss fight? Idk if I hate myself that much yet.


I understand some folks are salty on Halo Infinite mp, but having discovered for the first time what Tactical Slayer was last night and then having 2 hours evaporate, was so goddamn fun. But now do Tactical with just pistols, you cowards.


My switch playing dropped off precipitously once I got a PS5 🤷🏻‍♂️


TIL that the new Xbox game, The Gunk, is from the Steamworld devs (as part of Thunderful games). That's an instant interest for me.


My secret Santa has absolutely spoiled me and blown me away with personal care and attention. Thank you so much for the amazing games and book. I’ve never played Chaos Theory or Jade Empire and am super stoked. Thank you so much!!!


I think my dream job would be to be a writer with Remedy. Sam Lake seems like such an amazing guy and the dev does such weird and fun stuff. Also listening to a podcast interview with him and *chef’s kiss*
