Had a Xmas in July thing for work at a Pub. I ordered the Katsu Sandwich it was good.


Really great video for all you geographic/architecture nerds out there explaining why we Londoners complain about the heat so much. A large city retains heat, the underground traps heat, our homes trap heat... There is no escape.


I'm loving the writing in Great Ace Attorney already, even just in the first case. Several giggle-out-loud moments already, most of them related to Ryunosuke being a bundle of nerves in his first trial. He even has an animation for a wimpy desk slap.


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.


Weekly Update, here are the games I am currently playing. I am going to review those within brackets once completed: -[Kartia: The Word of Fate (PS1)] -Ys VIII(Switch) -Hollow Knight (Switch) -Persona 5 R (PS4) -Monster Hunter Rise (Switch)


The thing about Stray is that the concept of playing a cat inside any big city setting would've been cool. But then they went and made it a futuristic, cyberpunk-esque sci-fi dystopia because I guess they really, really wanted to get my money. Fine.


Pixar DOES know how to craft a fine booty. (I'm looking at you Mrs. Incredible.)


Watching Rocco's Modern Life. Suddenly, all I can see is Heffer being an orange pumpkin like mass wrapped around. Anyone else see something specific about a character design that broke it?


Got my hands on some more FF TGC stuff. Opus V seems to have FFXIV ARR, FFT, FFTA2, FFXII, Type-0 and FFXIII stuff. I mean, Lighting was on the packs, so yeah. I like my shiny Chibi Vayne card.


Watching Point Break (1991) for the first time and enjoying some Bonchon wings. Pretty decent evening. Also started Returnal and it’s pretty cool, but man would I be pissed if it crashed on me during a run.




Scored a Playdate 21 preorder yesterday, and I have to admit it has me a bit more excited than any other system out there. Hope you got one too if that's your jam


Chill edm song for the chill weekend. Has the same vibe as one of the downtempo daft punk songs from Interstella 5555. #musictoid | Don Diablo, Galantis - Tears For Later


Asking the important questions. Also, I'm sauced. Est bon


If any one is starving for new, modern hip hop, i just went into a vein of sorts on spotify. I'm gonna recommend the songs i just recently liked. Names in comment


With 8 billion people around the globe, there's gotta be at least one out there who's smooched a bee


i've seen middle life changes, but this man is NOT the one he sold in the 00's.


I didn't anticipate doing Pokémon UNITE twice in a row on stream, but since yesterday was cancelled and I already had this planned, well, join me and the full party of boys tonight @ 7:30PM ET for some RANKED matches! shorturl.at/vACS3


Classic fav for tonight’s drinking. Some vaguely related and unrelated comments to follow.


Bro, final Smash character speculation. How dope would this be?


The Song of the Hero quest in Skyward Sword feels like it should be side quest content. Surprising how recycled the last 3rd of the game feels.


Kind of want to give Skyward Sword another try with the recent remaster. I'm feeling forgiving and like games/franchises I dislike (Dead Space/MH/SS/Dragon Quest) deserve a second chance.


We all know what's in the box, so I'll get to the point this time. N O S T A L G I A !
