Watched Thor: Love and Thunder(loved it) AND Lightyear(Liked it) the other night. I do not understand the hate boner people have for these movies that are built as mythological tales for kids to look up to and learn lessons from...

 
 

I always had a high opinion of Papers, Please but now that my soul has been crushed by working retail for so long I read so much more into it than just the oppressive government angle I used to hold. BTW Cobrastan is not a real country!

 
 

Got this headline playing Papers, Please again and reminded me of something on that I thought I heard on the news and sure enough... United Kingdom... United Federation... Coincidence? 👀👀


 
 

Just woke up and heard the news. Uh... Stay strong and take care of yourselves my friends in the US.

 
 

I don't think anyone else has posted this yet but I remember there being a few fans of "Inside" on here and Bo Burnham has released a blooper real of the special and, in typical form, he arts'ed the shit out of it!

 
 

Triangle Strategy keep impressing me the more I play it, the game has very insightful commentary about radicalisation and what it takes to achieve unity. My favourite chapter title: "The Fortress That Is Faith" is just so apt for Hyzante(and real life)

 
 

The conservatives in the Australian election lost!!!!! let's goooooooooooooo!

 
 

Won a Last Spartan Standing!!! Not sure if I'm a fan of this mode or Microsoft not really fixing the battle pass incentive structure but I'll take this!


 
 

Watched Everything Everywhere All at Once with friends today and loved it. Didn't click with me immediately but when it did, it did BIG! Was incredible how it stuck the landing. Was cool how many other people were there in the cinema watching it too!

 
 

My last post was a bit of a jab against Triangle Strategy but I've come around on the game a lot. The Scales of Conviction are a neat mechanic that I thought was worth doing a video essay on. Are you guys aware of any other games with a democracy in them?

 
 

Holy shit there is a lot of talking in Triangle Strategy. I'm not sure if all of it is necessary, but the devs at least give you like every tool to speed up the process if you don't like it which is good. Also It's got cats.


 
 
 

Did a video about what I think Metroid Dread's narrative is. It surprised me how expressive Samus' hands are in the game so I hope that came through in the edit. Also tweaked the script to be a blog for those who prefer to read. Link in the comments.

 
 

This is one of the things I love about AoE4. It's a really nice touch to have a gradient from "real world" info to outlined soldiers and then full "graphics render" of the game. Works well with what's done in cutscenes(outlined troops over IRL footage)


 
 

Got my second Vax shot and I had a fever for about a day which is not too bad considering what others have been through! Now to make full use of this new power and proceed to stay inside and play videogames... Ahhhhhh.


 
 
 

I finished Dread and I had a blast playing it! I'll leave ever so slightly more indepth thoughts in the comments

 
 

I managed to finish the video before Dread came out! One last bit of hype for ya'll which is my case for why Metroid Fusion is about recovering from depression!

 
 

I found out that Sir Clive Sinclair died last month. He was instrumental in the popularity of early computers(ZX80). Anyway I thought this quote by him is pretty baller: "There’s no point in asking if someone wants it, because they can’t imagine it"

 
 

Metroid 2 doesn't get enough praise for the things that it did on that absolute brick of a hand held so I went and made a whole video essay on why it is so important to the series (and the creation of Super Metroid). Gettin' Hype for Dread!!

 
 

In the lead up to Metroid Dread I ended up replaying and reading up on the original Metroid. It was quite fascinating and I thought I'd make a video about it to add to the hype machine! What do you guys think, is Metroid girlboss or no?

 
 

I used a VR Headset for the first time!... To do training at work ...For how to deal with customers and picking out products for online orders.... Yes, mmhmm, capatalism sure is efficient... Not a single dollar or second of employee time wasted there...

 
 

Ya'll have some really neato lock screens and whatnot. Here's mine!


 
 

So there I was at my sister's, sitting in a row with her children, eating dinner at the kitchen counter. She's standing on the other side and says "Look at that! all the kids are sitting in order"... Not gunna lie, was a little devastated.

 
 

Hello fellow kids! While y'all are hunting your munsters I decided to be late to the party and got my first run of Hades completed! 9th attempt seems pretty good? The game is really good and I now understand the hubbub. Definitely THE game of 2020 for


 
 

SO Uh I made a video about 3D World. It's thematically a banger so I changed my format a bit to reflect it. Would love to see if you guys agree with my reasoning for why Meowser exists, pipes are transparent and how it all relates to a book for babies

 
 

Hey so if any of you guys were paying attention to the very small amount of stuff that I have said on here, I finally managed to get my video done about The Last of Us Part 2. Would love to hear what fellow gamers think of this game language stoof!

 
 

Happy new year Dtoid! I'm at work so no partying for me but I hope you guys are more able to celebrate!

 
 

So TLouP2 does a pretty neat thing here. We understand that cars have fronts and backs so having them all face the same way acts as diegetic arrows. An example for you budding game devs out there on how you can use the world to point/guide the player.


 
 

They've started the relentless barrage of Christmas music at my work this week. To my fellow peons in retail, stay strong and I wish that this year's holiday season be gentle to you.

Hello all!

I've been around these parts a long time and I find myself playing fewer and fewer games but my love of the medium has not dulled, if anything, it has gotten stronger.

My passion has gone mostly toward making games but my lack of being able to do art or music and lack of ability in reaching out to people to help me has meant that progress is rather slow...

I want to make games to push the medium forward in terms of understanding the language at the heart of the medium but since the making games route is a bit slow I figured I'd write up some insights and make some videos so that hopefully others can take the ideas and run with them too.

---------------------------------------------------

My Games:
Revenge Quest
(If you get stuck, just sit there and think about what basically every revenge story is about... Eventually you'll get it)

My Videos:
The Artistic Merit of Mario Games(PlayList)
The first video is a bit janky but the production quality does increase!

My Blogs:
The Spirits of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Love Letters Disguised as Battle
The Roads of Civilization
