We've gotten to the weekend once again! And for some of you, it's a three-dayer. Wel Jel. I hope that you all have a great weekend, packed out with some fun, some rest, some friends, and some chainsaw ice sculpture. Be safe, and have a wicked one. Love U


Cleared out one of the last remaining dungeons up in the Mountaintops, lost about 100K runes, let out some screams, then continued onward as I ranted I was totally done with the game, got some good kills and the bloodlust high brought me back to center :)


Have a great day all you wonderful people!!!


Looks like Resistance: Retribution (the best Resistance game) has been rated for back compat. Been many a moon since I shot Chimera and bullied frenchmen in that game. Here's hoping Sony sets it up with some debug options so you can aim with the stick.


So Moon Knight wasn't as good as it should have been.


Oh fucking hell. My wife and I are starting to look at adoption. Babies? Hard as hell, but it's what we're hoping for. Until about a minute ago. More in comments


Built a wand in Noita, that shot buzzsaws and globs of acid. Added a barrier shield. The shield wall splashed my acid back into me, and ricocheted the blades to saw me in half. 10/10. Almost made it past the ice caves finally too.


Whenever someone is like, "You can't make this kinda shit up," I always wonder how they've gone so long without knowing about books or games or movies or lies.


Beat the Cult of the Holy Detonation in Wasteland 3. Overall, enjoyed it. Had some minor issues with it but it had some cool ideas and visuals. And its interesting to see the devs toy more with forcing ye to keep moving towards an objective under pressure


Been messing about with the final DLC for Ace Combat 7. This soundtrack sums up my mood perfectly:


20K comments and I got my badge! Haha


Breaking the law by still enjoying Star Wars. You’ll never take me alive coppers (troopers?)! Apologies to those who are negatively impacted by clutter.


Well, I don't own the house yet but I live in it! And so far it's done the thing houses do - throw everything at me all at once. Plumbing issues are fun. To unwind I grabbed Wreckfest, which is a noun I'd use to describe a fun racing game and this house.


If Nintendo ever releases a Switch successor, I wish that they would honor legacy eShop purchases. I'm just dreaming, but it'd be cool to have titles like the GBA Metroid/Zelda/Klonoa games available to re-download on a Switch 2 if you bought them.


Just got my second clear in Slay the Spire. This time with Ironclad. Actually got a relic that let's you get cards from all characters. Was pretty fucking awesome, managed to make an insane build. I think I like this game.


Current Status: Bless me, Pigmar


I will bump the E3 and Occamsdex prompts tomorrow one last time before we set to work on them. May go with the new D&D Tarot Deck. Kinda has Dragon Age vibes.


I may have a final fantasy xi obsession.


If Qtoid loves Elden Ring so much why don't you marry it?


When you're typing a response on Discus and the screen lock up and you cannit se way your tttyping


I saw a post calling Ghilles in the Mist the best level in gaming, but I couldn't immediately think of other "best levels". I think Silent Cartographer is best I can do. What do you think the best level in gaming is?

My Thoughts on Halo 5: Guardians that no one asked for and that are 7 years late

So I finally made time to sit down and play Halo 5: Guardians. I'd heard nothing but bad things about it, so I decided to sit it out when it first dropped in 2015. In fact, it's the reason I never bought an Xbox One. Now that I'm in my...
