So it's the first day of Ramadhan, and the first thing I saw on TV when I woke up this morning was an ad for a new all-you-can-eat restaurant. Who says the universe doesn't have a sense of humor? Happy Ramadhan, everybody!


Because I don't want to feel old alone, let's play "I'm so old..." and provide the whippersnappers some trivias along the way, shall we? Example: "I'm so old I know that Red Dead Redemption was a SEQUEL. R.I.P. Red Dead Revolver."


It's hilarious that everything Phil Fish said in that fateful 2012 GDC panel now applied to just about every Ubisoft games and every other garbage game publishers in the West. Don't @ me, Ubisoft fanboys.


I asked ChatGPT to write an outline for a movie based on the Contra and Centurions cartoon series. It amused me how quick advancements in AIs are and how incredibly predictable big budget Hollywood action movies can be, because I got the same scripts.


What are the dumbest things you've said or heard as a teenager? No judgment, no hate, just things that you've heard and or said before you're of legal drinking age that today makes you shake your head going, "GOD that was real DUMB!"


As I sit here wondering if I would actually be watching and loving "Drive" if the trailer hadn't lied to me, please tell me your own stories where trailers/ads/promos blatantly lie to you about what the end product is actually about.


Random Thoughts While Pooping Hot Take Edition: saying "all superhero movies are the same" is precisely as stupid as saying "Ratatouille and Psycho are the same movies because there is a man who wields a kitchen knife in them."


While y'all be clamoring for Nintendo Direct, I'll be sitting here contemplating a Genshin Impact VA scandal. Link: https://twinfinite.net/2023/02/english-voice-actor-genshin-impacts-tighnari-faces-allegations-of-inappropriate-conduct/


Random Thoughts While Pooping Ars Goetia Edition: why are the Goetians called "demons" when a lot of their skills and powers are beneficial to humans? I mean, one takes money from the wealthy and divide it evenly among the people! How is that evil?


Thanks to a certain loud-mouthed Youtuber, I have discovered Inspirobot. My days are less grimmer now. Thank you, Inspirobot!


And y'all called me weird when I was simping over Rex's butt! I could've had a writing career, dammit!


You know what I hate? Corporations trying to take ownership of everything. A long time ago, sharing a funny meme is as easy as right-clicking and sending it to your friends. Now you have bullshit like right-click disabling over public domain materials.


Found this little gem, and while I get that this is a joke made by MTV, it amazes me how many things gets a pass by corporate executives back then as opposed to today.


Anime fanboys are the worst, and I'm embarrassed to call myself one in public.


Destructoid, what underrated or niche movie/TV series/cartoons/comics deserved a next-gen video game adaptation? Personally, I want a Mystery Men in the same vein as Gotham Knights. I mean, can't be any worse than the actual Gotham Knights game, right?


Shower me with your hate, DC fanboys.


Hot Take: "disgruntled former employee" is such a bullshit excuse when deflecting shitty corporate behavior. Of course every former employee will be disgruntled; there's no such thing as a "contented former employee."


I've seen enough hentai to know where this is going.


MovieToids, which movies that everybody else despise that you can't help but love? Mine would be "The Musketeer" (2001). Everybody and their grandma knows the story, so why not have an epic fight scene stolen from Jet Li movies instead?


Let the fanboy flame wars begin: https://screenrant.com/ash-pikachu-retirement-digimon-better-pokemon/


Next time someone tells you you're aloof and unfriendly, tell them they just don't get your vibe.


Calling all millenials! Because I don't want to feel old all alone, would you mind sharing some of your pre-internet memes? You know, things like typing "80085" on the calculator because it spells "BOOBS".


Abbott Elementary took one of the darkest moments in Avengers: Infinity War and made me laugh my ass off. GodDAMN I love this show!


Remember that South Park episode where Earth was revealed to be a trashy daytime reality TV for aliens? That's how it felt like when I hear about shit like this: https://kotaku.com/activision-blizzard-daniel-alegre-yuga-labs-bayc-ceo-1849914535


An exaggeration for sure, but somehow felt incredibly accurate.


I just read up more info on Ys X: Nordics, and sounds like it'll be an even more contentious title than Ys IX. Oh lawd here we go again!


There's an anime cosplay event at the mall where my office is today. I gotta say, there is a TON of anime characters whose entire costume is just their Japanese middle school uniform with sword/scythe/weird glowy thing on their person!


About Ricky Namaraone of us since 8:16 PM on 02.17.2014

Don't mind the burning skull: it's just a flesh wound.

Greetings from Indonesia a.k.a. "You Mean Bali?" Ricky's the name and talking your ears off is my game. My family and friends often get annoyed with my endless ranting of the current state of the video game industry, so hopefully y'all will prove to be a better audience. Gosh I probably shouldn't say that out loud because one of them could be reading this huh? How do you edit these darn things?

Oh yes, my age is starting to show itself, doesn't it? Unlike you whippersnappers I was born when typing actually means typing on a typewriter. So as you can see, sometimes my opinions can get really outdated, and in this day and age of "I Am Offended" it's easy to forget that, you know, old folks like me ain't dead yet. That's why if you happen to disagree and find my opinions not quite matching up to your own worldviews, I apologize beforehand for that.

Now then, on with the show!
