Linkle Mod: Now featuring catboi... because reasons.


 
 

Does anyone else still kinda view the 360/PS3/Wii as the start of the "modern era" and everything before that is retro, even though that's not really accurate anymore?

 
 

Between Strange New Worlds and The Orville, I'm getting a lot of good new Star Trek lately and I'm enjoying them both.

 
 

Amazing how quickly 11 states already acted to ban abortion, but just can't seem to pass universal healthcare like the entire rest of the developed world. I'm sure it's because they care so deeply about human life.

 
 

Obi-Wan Kenobi more or less did everything I wanted to see in it, but I feel like it did so in the most half-baked way every time. It was OK, but it should have been better.

 
 

So far Shredder's Revenge is pretty much what I wanted. Turtles in Time soundtrack but even better, and Turtles in Time gameplay but even better.

 
 
 

While discussing some stuff with friends today, I just came across a mind-boggling statistic about Chrono Trigger that has completely and utterly shattered my brain.

 
 

Uh-oh. Linkle seems to have gotten herself lost again.


 
 

Repugnicans at it again. We have inflation and supply chain problems, healthcare is still broken, unionization under assault, and once again all they have to offer is "don't say gay. PS. screw women lol"


 
 
 
 

Unironically tho if we can't have Steve Downes as the Chief it would've been fun to see Vin Diesel in the role for the new Halo series. He could totally pull off the deadpan one-liners and back and forth banter with Cortana.

 
 

Beating the 200cc time trial ghost of Ninja Hideaway is an exercise in psychological abuse from Nintendo. Did they really expect even 1% of players to pull that off? Never again...

 
 

Nitpick Theater: Why is a made-for-TV streaming show STILL not using 16:9 aspect ratio? Movies I can forgive; TV has no excuse. You're ALREADY FILMING for a 16:9 screen! Y'all just love to throw pointless black bars everywhere don't ya. Stahp it.

 
 

I feel like the first episode of Halo condensed half a season's worth of plot into a single episode. That uh... that escalated quickly.

 
 

After a week's worth of banging my head against a wall, I have finally achieved the retro gaming and media center PC of my dreams.


 
 

Already triple-starred the two booster course cups at 200cc. I'd say it's a solid 6 or 7/10 release. The lack of anti-gravity tracks is felt, but I didn't dislike anything that I played. At $25 for 48 new tracks though, it's a no-brainer either way.

 
 

Finally got around to seeing No Way Home. As someone who didn't care for the previous two spidey films, I feel like this one finally did right by the character. Still a little messy though with how much had to be crammed into the plot, but overall good.

 
 

Well it's been a hot minute since I last replayed Chrono Trigger, so might as well replay Chrono Trigger. I'm using the excuse this time of trying it out with an interesting QOL romhack. Pic unrelated.


 
 

What's sad is the Animatrix shows how much potential the franchise has to be expanded in meaningful ways, but Resurrections settles for revisiting past glories through self-referential meta-commentary and ends up just spinning its wheels.

 
 

Ya know all things considered, even though I might have disagreed with some choices everything seemed like a respectable pick this year at TGA, and that's a step up from how I usually feel about these awards shows. I think they did alright.

 
 

Some thoughts on the Cowboy Bebop live action stuff (in the comments).

 
 

Finished Arcane and uh... wow. Never gonna look at these characters the same way again lol. Jinx is so wild every time she's on screen, I genuinely don't know what she's going to do next. I expected craziness, but I didn't expect so much pain too.

 
 
 
 

Metroid Dread done, clear time 7:39. Overall it was a great time, the ending was cool. Unfortunately I did have some growing pains with it towards the end though. Full wall of text in the comments.


 
 

General thoughts on Dread so far: it's a huge improvement over Samus Returns. MercurySteam clearly learned a lot. The environments and music could still use better atmosphere, but the gameplay is very on-point and I'm loving the EMMI sections.


 
 

I was nervous going through the big line at GameStop for this. Thought for sure they'd be out by the time they got to me, but there were 2 copies left. Lez gooooo


 
 

Finished replays of Zero Mission, AM2R, Super, Fusion, Prime 1, Prime 3, and Other M in my anticipation of Dread. Didn't have time to finish Prime 2 and Samus Returns but I'm OK with that. Now I just gotta wait until tomorrow morning...
