Good Omens and Doctor Who are the David Tennant-patterned duct tape holding the shards of my brain together in this trying time

When I was a kid I never turned the computer off properly because I thought the "reset" button said "rest" and always hit it instead of the power

just finished Ori and the Blind Forest!! Well, I saw the credits earlier today but I went back to collect everything

decided to make some pride flags using only colours from doom sprites. i couldnt find any purple, this turned out to be a big issue

you ever wanna play sm64 but you only ever played the DS version, and even then, you borrowed it from someone (who you're not friends with anymore because he was an asshole) and unfortunately you gave it back before you stopped being friends so you can't even play that?

A lot of that comes down to the way your life situation changes from kid -> adult rather than a change in video games themselves, but it's really nice

Like I feel like the combination of not knowing THAT much about the game, having the actual free time to play through it without wanting to rush it to get back to life, and the way it can be a bit challenging at times but it isn't insanely hard (playing on normal mode anyway) makes it all add up to the kind of experience I haven't had with a video game since I was a kid

I know this isn't actually true but in a weird way Ori and the Blind Forest feels like the first Video Game I've played in ages

Check out Daft Punk's new single "Get Lucky" if you get the chance. Sound of the summer.

Today I learned that a handful of famicom games were put into NES cartridges, and they're exclusively for this amazingly industrial-looking Nintendo jukebox. (the NES games in the photo are just for show, they wouldn't actually be compatible with the machine, nor would Famicombox games work in an NES.)

I feel I'm going to be discovering new ultra-rare old video game stuff that existed in Japan until I die. Next year it's going to be a Sony VCR that doubles as a Sega Saturn. It plays VHS tapes but has a second slot for special proprietary betamax saturn cartridges. The games you could buy in this format were Sonic 3D Blast and Zoop. They only sold 3 units to children's hospitals in late 1997.

thinking about old games and resolving that the next time i go home to Canada, I dig mine out... I forced my parents to never get rid of that kind of stuff. I think we almost got rid of some at a garage sale once but thankfully no one bought them LOL
