Hear me of writers of reviews on Dtoid, I humbly ask, to bring into question, if a Monkey Island review be on the horizon or if my trust must be placed in the words of others less wise?

 
 

So... apparently no one in the US knows what a blackcurrant is or has tasted one?

 
 

Finally got round to watching RRR. It did not disappoint.

 
 

It may be Clap Hanz, but man Easy Come Easy Golf isn't the next Everybody's Golf...

 
 

So it looks like age has made me lactose intolerant. RIP pizza, cheese, ice cream etc etc...

 
 

The Queen has died.

 
 

I fixed my Internet. Don't know why it wanted an engineer visit as this could have been done over the phone...

 
 

It's only 1:40am and already today sucks.

 
 

PSA: There's a save data issue hitting MH: Rise on the Switch. Apparently deleting Guild Cards is the suggested temp fix.

 
 

Well what a day. Had a guy literally smash through the covid screens and rob one of the tills. Everyone is okay. Gonna be a lot of paperwork.

 
 

Finished watching "The Rehearsal" which, is an incredibly uncomfortable watch. But - why the hell does the media seem to speak of it as a comedy? Like, there's nothing comedic about it...

 
 

Some front page folk are... odd. Like, the bad kinda odd. Saints Row's comment section is a cesspit.

 
 

Why does Disney+ hate 4:3 so much?

 
 

I feel like some here will appreciate this


 
 

Better Call Saul was good. It ended well. I still think Bojack probably has the best ending of all time, but if was still strong.

 
 

So after Simple Plan got mentioned I went back and listened to a lot of songs/bands I used to listen to in college. It was depressing. Like man, I think my entire music taste at that time was born from childhood heartbreak...

 
 

Been watching stuff. Opinions in the comments (no spoilers). [Random Bump]

 
 

First DnD session in a long time and my Internet provider has widespread issues. Sad times.

 
 

Give me a stupid "fact" from when you were kid. Mine in the comments.

 
 

Today has been a day. Please send hugs.

 
 
 

It's hot. 40C/104F. All the shopfloor chillers died. The shopfloor freezer died. The back chiller died. The back freezer died. 8k of food died.

 
 

Well, that's the credits rolled on Sunbreak. It certainly was more Monster Hunter Rise.

 
 

If you like classic Guns n Roses and dumb action films, Thor is a good time. My friend didn't like it as apparently something to do with Marvel, but as I don't follow such things I liked it.

 
 

Having only ever played MushihimeSama on the PS2, my dear lord does it look god damn fantastic on the Switch

 
 

Am I missing something but are the folk on Destructoid streams (just seem the Spot Dodge one come onto YouTube) have like no one who posts on Destructoid? [Bump for Boxman]

 
 

Boris has resigned. My lord.

 
 

Forgot to reveal what was in the box. Know a few of you guessed correctly.


 
 

So I've been much steamrollin' through Sunbreak, probably carted twice and then hit a bit of wall with a beastie I didn't think would be an issue at all. Dude is a straight up HP tank...

 
 

Oldie but a goodie Monster Hunter tip: use herbal medicine instead of antidotes. Work as fast as a ration and also restore health.

I started as a massive Nintendo fan. I had a SNES before, but it was really the N64 I got on my 10th birthday that really got me into gaming. I stuck with Nintendo pretty much exclusively until the DS rolled out and I played NSMB - man I hated that game. It looked awful, sounded awful and was so easy it was hardly worth paying attention to what you were doing.

The PSP and Monster Hunter stole away hundreds of hours of life and that's when I really started to look at Sony. I had missed great games like Okami, God of War (it was cool at the time), Gradius V and Metal Gear Solid

With the promise of Metal Gear Solid and Monster Hunter on the PS3 I snagged one as soon as I was able. In the long wait (and Monster Hunter jumping to Nintendo...) I picked up Uncharted. My god, what a game! And more followed - Uncharted 2 was excellent, Catherine, Rayman Origins, The Last of Us - man the PS3 was amazing. Yes I still played the 'essential' Nintendo titles (and spent hours on my 3DS when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate landed - and 100s more on Generations) but the PlayStation had become my main shabang for modern gaming.

I'm also a huge retro fan. Having loved the games I played as a kid, and discovering the earlier titles in franchises I loved - but it was really when I got into sprite ripping and the world of emulation that I truly discovered all there was out there on offer.

Top 10 Games:

Metal Slug X
DoDonPachi
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Frogs and Flies
Catherine
Doom (2016)
Okami
Mother 3
Day of the Tentacle
