The Steam Deck is the first gaming handheld(/console?) with FIVE L triggers and five R triggers and a grand total of nearly 20 BUTTONS on this damn thing! This "future of gaming" trend is really starting to get out of hand now.


I swear the most interesting things turn up in my Twitter feed. Today's tweet is about the prices of video games in the 90's and how not-so cut and dry they were compared to today where most everything is 64.99 regardless of how short or long the game is.


Today's journey through Twitter hit me hard with the realization we're now living in a time where kids are oblivious to the Sega Dreamcast...


I hi-key wished there was no character limit in blogs, especially when images take up said character limit. I actually had to remove a few images just so I could fit the first half in. Oh well, enjoy the read!


Nintendo's about to rob me $600 (assuming all these games are $60) worth of amazing games by the end of this year...f- off!!! Picture is the exact moment I widened my eyes, covered my mouth, and screamed in utter excitement


It's 5pm on the East Coast, and I've just finished my extensive write up on Sonic the Hedgehog. Just gotta throw some images together and schedule the post. You might want to set some time for this one folks. It's a VERY long read, but pretty informative.


I've got my wishlist nice and updated, how about you guys?


I bet you anti-Sonic nerds are more than thrilled now that Yuji Naka has left SquareEnix and possibly retiring. Y'all made him cry because of you're negativity towards Balan Wonderworld!


How much do you love the Super Mario Bros. movie? Do you love it so much you would watch a recently unearthed never-before-seen 2 hour cut of the movie? Link in comments.


Very rarely does a fight scene give me serious goosebumps...this was the last time I got those goosebumps.


Well that was the shortest series of announcements I've probably ever seen, damn.


For those that may have already read my blog post about Dragon Quest may want to look back as I've added all the new announcements from the stream that happened. Super excited for a lot of these, not gonna lie.


There's been an increased interest in Sonic lately. I'm currently typing out a post all about him that won't be released for another month, but boy oh boy have I got a nerdy retrospective look on a subject that I am probably most fond of!


I started playing Grandia last night and most of the day today. It's been a pretty fun ride so far. I think I can see myself enjoying this just as much as I did Grandia II.


If anybody can help bring Mother 3 to the western shores it's Terry Crews!


Juan Joya Borja, famous for being the face of KEKW on Twitch has passed away. He was 65 years old.


Remember when Limited Run Games was just a silly little web store that sold digital-only titles on physical media? Looks like they'll be opening up a physical store at the MacGregor Village Mall in North Carolina in September!


So it looks like all is not lost when it comes to buying games off the PSN store over a web browser! (Links in comments)


I never did understand the concept of recreational drugs. I was too busy playing video games to care much about them.


Just bought 192 DOGE after waking up to the coin soaring in price from 7 cents to 13 cents...Let's see how this turns out.


Video games are for children after all so I see nothing wrong with this, hmmm... (video in comments)


I saw this in an article, inspiring words to follow: “Don’t play more than an hour of games each day. Go out and play. Work and study hard. When you do better, you’ll enjoy the games more, too. You are the future of our country.” - Takahashi Me


I'm curious if you're an achievement hunter or not? Do you find more enjoyment in a game without having to think about trying to get that platinum trophy or earning every achievement in a game? Or do you want something to show off your accomplishments?


I am an absolute sucker for strong independent female leads, so my #womantoid shout out goes to Aya Brea.


Here's a tier list that's a little easier on the eyes.


If the average price of Switch games wasn't $50-60 I'd have another 7-10 games on here maybe...


I'm surprised this isn't bigger news...maybe because it's not on Steam...oh yeah, and it's $230 for all 4 games.


After about 3 months and continuous compressing I've magically filled this 6TB hard drive with every PS2 game from Europe, Japan, and America. AMA.


Guess I'll throw in my completions of 2020. Most of the retro games listed were kind of repeat completions so I almost didn't include those but I was home a lot this year.


I'm 24 hours into FFXV and am I correct to assume the game is basically 80% sidequests and 20% main story? I feel like I've spent probably close to 10+ hours just on Chapter 3 with almost no progress because of all these sidequests! (love the game though!
