So yeah... I love playing F-ZERO 99. I really do. And we're going to play more of it tonight since we're going live with the first FULL session of F-ZERO 99! https://twitch.tv/virtuakazama


Current Status:


The much-maligned Mortal Kombat 1 on Switch, spotted on store shelf for 75e. I'm still happy to not play fighting games. Also on a happier note: Eurogamer's review of the game (PS5) was by a certain Chris Moyse.


It's autumn again, so it's time for me to replay Dear Esther.


#26 Movie of 2023: Talk to me. I can say this is more drama than horror or psychological horror, but whatever the case, it is done remarkably well. Social commentary since the beginning, and a good one. Created by Youtubers, less is more, alright. 5/5.


I think one of my favorite parts of MK1, legitimately, is watching Johnny Cage and Kenshi become best friends.


I never knew Megan Fox was in the new Mortal Kombat but man her acting is HORRID compared to the other characters. AAA developers really need to ease up on hiring hollywood actors.


Well, Bone Marrow on Genesis is the more in-depth version of 2048 that I hoped to see after one on Switch was a letdown. But it also feels rather boring after two levels.


Average Tuesday Status:


It's been years since I've done a Crowd Control stream. I know what we're doing tonight...


Yesterday, I finally participated in a local Just Dance tournament after being a fan of the series for so long, and came in second place. Golden trophy for that, and Platinum for overcoming my social anxiety and dancing around people.


Late night pajama party status:


I looked at the number of comments on FP articles. I suppose I can now start looking into creating a site for my random blogs now.


Causal Sunday Evening Status:


Hover cars in Horizon Chase 2 on Switch? Not liking the double nag screens about creating an Epic account every time I start up the game either.


#52 Game beaten in 2023 is: Oddworld Stranger's Wrath (Vita). Having played the first one in the series and not liking it much, this spin off was on my radar for quite some time. I loved how experimental and unique it was. 4/5 due to pacing & difficulty.


Current status: I took an ibuprofen


Weekly Update, here are the games I am currently playing. I am going to review those within brackets once completed: -[Jade Cocoon (PS1)] -Daemon X Machina (Switch) -Panzer Dragoon (Switch) -DOOM Eternal (PS4/5)


Howdy folks. Been a long while since I posted here. Some gaming hot takes. Starfield is fucking booooring, Karlach is new best girl, Unity can eat a bag of dicks and that Robocop game looks ace. Ok now back to my cave.


Hey! Did you know I paint minis! Yeah it's been awhile but the weather is finally cooperating aka it's not hot in my painting room. Up today is another carter era mini: 1979 Elf Hero from Tom Meier himself. Need to come up with a weird 70s name for him �


I've been deep diving first person shooters where shooting is secondary to everything else (if that genre has a name) and I finally arrived at the father of them all, System Shock - god DAMN that hud is... something.


19 hours to go! Get yourself a giant retro gaming coffee table book ASAP! These are only printed once in this size, so don’t miss it! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/darrenhupke/32-bit-library-volume-3-konamis-playstation

The First Syphon Filter Sets the Stage for a Continuous Tale
