Where's CJ at? He still working at dtoid?


I like how the front page is stuck in 2021, as if certain people were still working for dtoid


Mr. Covington, my sweetest little goblin baby, is currently in the animal hospital with a possible heart failure, we don't know for sure what is up with him. Please wish us all well, we are preparing for the worst.


Speaking of frogs, in seeing the Les Claypool Frog Brigade this Saturday! In New Orleans! I'm so excited to see them again!

Boy I'm getting into a weird rabbit hole w/ Monster Hunter. I'm reading about MHDos with it's new fan translation patch, and this game looks...unique? No other title in the series is quite like this one, and it's very hard core difficult.


dag nabbit sony, stop porting games to PC until you've ported Bloodborne!


Getting home to my wife watching Reboot, holy shit. This show brings me back, both in the fact I watched it's of run on ABC, then got to finish it in High School via Toonami. I remember loving how serious it got by the end, good preteen melodrama


Finally got my bloody results. Very red. Much plasma. More deets in the comments. Of course, the doctors had to parse my blood out from the communal blood bucket


I wanted to be a lot of things growing up. Paleontologist. Cartoonist. Animator. As an adult, tho, I want nothing more than to be a shambling skeleton guarding a crypt somewhere


It's not the meta, apparently, but Arial style Great Sword and Insect Glaive are some of the most fun I've had in MonHun (GU). GS even more so, I miss a lot, getting the hang of charged jump swings, but connecting a hit feels good man


Not sure if anyone saw this already, but I found it fascinating. Truly a surreal work of art.


While yall were playing ToTK, I was playing...MHGU. and let me tell you, between the two games...they are very different from one another. that is all


I raged hard last night when the very first treasure chest in the very first temple gave us a fucking amber. Amber!? Really Nintendo??! Couldn't even give us a rupee or new type of stick or shield?!? Worst. Game. Ever.


Nintendo's color game is unmatched. Elden Ring might match it, and definitely passes it in fidelity detail, but TotK's color and art direction is beautiful, and Nintendo still sits on the throne, have been since Mario Odyssey, another color rich game


15 mins into wathcing my wife play ToTK and im already inspired. This game looks fun and im happy my wife has found another game she vibes with.


We'll, I just realized my wife is friends with the Ukelady, who is in a band with Gabby LaLa, and they recently preformed at les Claypools vineyard. Like, is there a chance in my life now to jam or meet that man 1 on 1 now? Holy shit


Wow, Jack Welch was literally the one of the worst things to happen to the US and corporate world. https://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-behind-the-bastards-29236323/


BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT coming to ATL!! He's playing this weekend Friday and Saturday, we are going Saturday--ooh, excited! He was great when I saw him at the Bell House in Brooklyn back in 2017


that moment you buy a retro game but it's not BC with your consoles. Truly, only for Xbox 360. At least i have an undeniably loved From Soft treasure. Maybe i'll own a 360 again; I have an extensive 360 collection that happens to also be BC with the xbone


Want to say that Diddy Kong Racing still FUCKING holds up as a video game, and more racers need to do this. Forgot how fun the silver coin challenges are, collecting something and having to be in first is a fun tension to have in a race


I don't miss the way video games looked between 2005 and 2010. Man that was an ugly period, w/ twilight princess being one of the worst offenders. Ugly ass bloom and lighting ruined some great character design


Saw the Mario movie. Bowser was enjoyable, and so was kamek with his lip licking. But outside of callbacks to the games, it was ok. Still find Wreck it Ralph the better Mario movie


Any fans of Drake here? Just what the hell is his appeal? Not once have I had the urge to listen to his music on purpose, and what I have heard is...boring?


About cockaroachone of us since 5:06 PM on 10.15.2009

My favorite games meld music, art, and gameplay to enhance one another, elevating the product to something beyond mere "consumption"; it's an experience. Not everyone will like them, but they do gain a passionate following. Sorry if anything I said sounded pretentious, I am trying to be sincere. I love music and art, I've dabble in both for over 20 years now, so I appreciate games that put love into their art assets, animations, character design, level design, music, sound design, storytelling, and voice acting, even if the gameplay is simplistic (as long as it's fun!). These games also tend to feel nice- the control has a certain snap to it, enhanced by the visual and audio cues. This list may be biased towards my adolescence and childhood favorites from the SNES and N64/PSX days, so bare with me: you will see a lot of retro favorites. If your favorite is not on the list, it's probably because i didn't play it as a child/adolescent, or as an adult, for that matter.

In a somewhat random order:
Chrono Trigger
Super Smash Bros Melee
World of Warcraft (Classic/Vanilla)
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Banjo Kazooie
Katamari Damacy
Shadows of the Colossus
Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Meat Boy
Donkey Kong Country
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Human Fall Flat
World of Horror
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
Super Mario Odyssey
Metal Slug 3
Tokyo Jungle (an odd one, for sure, but i love it so)
