  • You're telling me Diablo 2 is real life?

  • "Silly me! You know how spacey I can be sometimes."
  • I'm paranoid about this. When a game has a "junk" tab in the inventory with an option at stores to "sell all junk," I know there's going to be a quest to give a generic silver ring or a jade statuette to someone.

  • The men vs. bear saga reaches the inevitable conclusion
  • I think chubby bisexuals are classed as "pandas"

  • The men vs. bear saga reaches the inevitable conclusion
  • I never understood this debate. Of course a woman would feel safer with a large gay man at her side.

  • Thanks, I hate it
  • Frozen yolk hurt.

  • "Now I'm just somebody that you used to know"

  • Poll: How would you rate the Xbox Games Showcase?
  • It was probably the best lineup they've had since the 360 days. Doom, Fable, Perfect Dark and South of Midnight are all the ones on my list.

    Could have done without the huge CoD bookends, though. People in the room said a noticeable number of people started to leave during that part.

  • Star Wars Outlaws: Official Gameplay Showcase | Ubisoft Forward
  • Did anyone else think the guy doing the voiceover sounded like Werner Herzog?

  • Dragon Age The Veilguard Gameplay Reveal Teaser
  • I really wish game and film companies would stop sharing trailers on xitter, and people should definitely find a different source before resharing it. We all need to quit driving traffic to Elon's nazi bar.

  • Got a hot 'n' ready pepperoni on sale, straynjuh.

  • scrumptious
  • New Dark Souls great sword just dropped.

  • METAL GEAR SOLID Δ: SNAKE EATER - Official Trailer #1
  • I never get tired of seeing a tall ladder in Elden Ring with a note that says "snake, snake!" in front of it.

  • DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO - Release Date Announcement
  • Budokai Tenkaichi 3 on Wii is my favourite DBZ game of all time, so I hope this lives up to it. That game had a massive roster, with the ability to transform and fuse characters mid-match, so I hope that's still a feature.

    I'm just worried that they'll chop up the characters and release them piecemeal as DLC. Seeing Gogeta and Broly as pre-order bonuses makes me think this'll be the case, but they're just "early-unlock" so maybe they're in the game anyway but the pre-order just gives you access to them from the start.

  • The Thing: Remastered Announcement Trailer | Nightdive Studios
  • This is really surprising. I figured this game was lost to time because of licensing issues after Vivendi was absorbed into Activision.

    It looks like more than just a remaster is going on here. I've been replaying it recently and there are some things shown in this trailer that aren't in the original game, unless they just scripted some scenes to look cool for the trailer that aren't actually going to be in the game.

    I just hope they rebalance the boss fights. Some of them are ridiculously difficult in the original, to the point where they almost ruin the game.

  • Mountain Goats at Loveland Pass
  • Which one is John Darnielle?

  • Dystopika - Cyberpunk City-Builder Gameplay Overview Trailer
  • This would be a great screensaver game like The Endless Forest.

  • Accuracy in language is important
  • This is another reason why "groovy" needs to make a comeback and I've been consciously inserting it into my daily life.

  • Mac Glocky - Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana (if it was written by Incubus)

    When I run out of Incubus songs to listen to I've been turning more and more to Mac Glocky. He also does good impressions of Smashing Pumpkins and Chevelle.

    Cool Remixed Music to Share MamboGator

    The Naked And Famous - Young Blood (White Sea Remix)

    Yes, I have been watching The Dead Boy Detectives. Why do you ask?

    Fun Lovin' Criminals - Scooby Snacks (1996)


    I just ordered this from the Xbox Design Lab

    I justified the stupid cost to myself because it can also simultaneously pair with my Steam Deck and the paddles will work with all of my old games that I had to use the rear buttons for in the control mappings.


    Can you help me choose a new Mastodon instance?

    I'm currently on, which is great. I have no issues with the users or admin. They're all good people. But I'm more of a casual Trek fan and posting about anything non-Trek-related doesn't seem to be what the other members want to engage with. I like to post about sci fi or horror movies I'm watching, games I'm playing, old TV shows from the '90s and '00s, and other geeky things I'm into; but it's like I'm talking to myself when I do.

    I know there's also the global feed, but that's like spitting into the ocean.

    I've tried to find more of a general media or geek-culture focused instance but have come up dry. Does anyone know of something along those lines?

    PS5 Performance?

    I know a lot of people are having issues with the frame rate, but is that limited to PC? I'm playing on PS5 and it's been very smooth. The only thing I've noticed is NPCs fading into existence when they're right in front of me.

    It could just be that I have low standards.


    Oxventure: Deadlands

    If you're unfamiliar with Oxventure, they're a TTRPG group that spun off from the Outside Xbox channel. They mostly play D&D but occasionally do a one-off or shorter campaign of things like Blades in the Dark or Lasers and Feelings. They make my favourite actual play videos besides Dimension 20's first season of The Unsleeping City.

    This is the full playlist of their Deadlands campaign.


    Hard West 2

    Here's my contribution. If you enjoy games like XCOM and Shadow Tactics you'll probably like Hard West 2. Everyone says to skip the first game and the story of the sequel doesn't follow from it anyway so it's a fine starting point.


    Dobie Gray - Drift Away

    We used to sing along to this in my friend's van all the time.


    "Outcast: A New Beginning" demo

    I just played the demo on PS5 and it's absolutely gorgeous. I really like the original, which also got a shiny remake a few years ago.
