There's a big old bundle of games on itch.io to raise money for abortion funds. I'll put a link in the comments. Edit: link is finally there

 
 
 

Man, I was FULLY engrossed in this video. It sounds amazing!



 
 
 

Finally got around to beating Jak and Daxter. It was fun! Kind of janky by modern standards and the platforming isn't as tight as Crash 2&3. All and all tho, very solid. Looking forward to the (albeit more action focused) sequels


 
 
 

Looking through restaurant menu prices from two or more years ago on Yelp is depressing. A BBQ mix plate from L&L Hawaiian BBQ cost $10.95 two years ago, now it's $19.95!!

Finished Elden Ring. Same way I spent most of the game: dropping rocks on things, occasional glintblade, mimic tear, super Hadoken.


 
 
 

Aww yeah, verified. Not going to be there for super long, but I'm glad to be in a single-digit placement for a while at least.


 
 
 

Current Status:


 
 
 

I'm at the point in Recettear where I need to get 500,000 dollars in less than a week and I only have 3,000 dollars and I don't know if it's worth the effort to try and raise the rest.

 
 
 

It just looks so cosy.


 
 
 
 

I am now completely up to date with One Piece. I am exhausted, but excited to start reading week to week once it comes back.

 
 
 

Read Ruri Dragon. That is all.

 
 
 

Am drunk. Is drunk. Drunk drunk drunk drunk drunk booze drunk

 
 
 

They are using Franz Ferdinand for the Cyberpunk anime opening. I love me some Franz, but I would never have expected that to happen. Though I guess since it is a mixed western production, it makes more sense.



 
 
 

Is Sekiro similar to Nioh? I didn't really like Nioh and Sekiro looks kinda similar in some ways, I'm wondering if someone who didn't like Nioh is likely to enjoy Sekiro.

 
 
 

I think I"ll try to get back to Tunic.There is a good bit to like about bit but I am going to have to play on invcible mode a bit because man the combat sucks and is so basic and boring.Wish this was just the same game but no combat and more explore/puzzl



 
 
 

I'm so happy I got Huntdown on a cartridge. This game is damned good. Came with a manual and some pins too. Pick it up if you can.

 
 
 

Boss phases are in! Now onto designing attacks that are fun to dodge with all the pieces in place. Bump! ^^


 
 
 

Edm event was advertised for every Saturday at this local place but only on the EDM page and not the official page for this place. That was my first flag. Went and turns out it sucked. They canceled after the first weekend lol - wrong crowd for dubstep.

 
 
 

My brother and I always used to joke about the Pope Gundam from Neo-Vatican city, so I made it. BE NOT AFRAID.


 
 
 

Hi everyone. So many things have happened in the last year that I would love the opportunity to catch everyone up. I am excited to say as of a month ago I am no longer a teacher after 18 years and now I work for the department of natural resources!


 
 
 

Just read this yesterday. Loved it. Might be my new favorite time travel story ever. And apparently, it's being adapted to a TV show soon! I hope the show is good.


 
 
 

I committed the cardinal sin of offering to help the apartment complex handyman with his computer, but it was in surprisingly good shape given that he's 80. Still, Win 10 was not meant for cutesy laptops with 30 Gb of internal storage.
