I grew up on expired Peeps that my grandparents bought in the post-Easter candy sales from the previous year, so you can imagine how I feel about the things. We used to stuff them into plastic eggs when they weren’t looking so we wouldn’t have to eat them, but then they thought we really liked the things and started Read more

I fired up Super Smash Bros Ultimate last week, played a few matches, found the World of Light, unlocked a couple characters, and promptly became frustrated at some combination of gimmicks or another. I powered through, unlocked another couple characters, and became frustrated again at a completely different Read more

Completely unrelated to the main point of this article, but I didn’t realize The Room 4 had been released on Steam this month. Thank you for accidentally being the one to tip me off about it! I don’t even think Remote Play would work well for a game like The Room, but I’m still getting plenty of mileage out of this Read more

You say that, but while we’re distracted by his money, he’s stealing our hearts.

Sure, but now instead of grappling with my anxiety and rationalizing through how unlikely it is that petting a dog will give me COVID or re-applying hand sanitizer every time I touch an unfamiliar surface, I can just shout “DOG!” from across the room like a joyful toddler, just like I always have.

Yes, yes, there are medical reasons, but the single best argument I’ve seen to not even think twice about getting vaccinated is that, three days ago, on February 22nd in the year of our lord 2021, while getting my tires changed at a local garage, I got to pet a stranger’s dog without having weird, “Not all of these Read more

Prediction: Wendy’s Twitter account is going to be all snarky about how GameStop might as well dig expired ice cream out of the dumpster behind their local Safeway, and then they’ll spin it into an advertisement for their Expired Ice Cream From Safeway Frosty.

Also, my inner child is offended by the thought of either eating a chocolate hologram or watching the image turn into a rainbow blur on a too-hot car trip home from the rainbow confectioner.

I remember going to the mall when I was a kid and seeing giant framed holograms in a gallery for purchase like they were paintings. I’ve never met anyone with a framed hologram, but this article makes me wonder how many people still have these gracing their living rooms, next to their Wham! posters and scratch-n-sniff Read more

Yeah, I’ve played enough of Melee to know that there’s a different game design philosophy at play in Smash and the imitators that have cropped up since, but my problem with getting good are the same for Smash as they are for Street Fighter: I just go out with fists swinging and don’t adjust my strategy based on what Read more

There were only 4 proper levels, plus a separate area devoted to a big final boss encounter. And with how soon after unlocking the last pikmin color they threw the final boss at you, it really did feel like the entire game before the boss was an extended tutorial. Read more

I’ve been watching a lot of Super Mario 3D World speedruns over the past couple years, probably would still have to dig around every level for stars like I’d never seen any of it before, so I’d probably get a lot of mileage out of it. I don’t totally have a grasp on the Bowser’s fury gameplay loop yet, but it’s 3D Read more

Wendy’s needs to find a new marketing gimmick. At this point it just feels like they’re trying desperately to style on fast food places with superior food because they landed one good snarky tweet a decade ago and they think it’s their “thing” now. The breakfast menu was OK, but none of their food (especially the Read more

I suppose getting Akira Yamaoko on sound design is probably too much to hope for.

I am going to spend Valentine’s Day at home, playing a video game about trying to bone magical beings and mythological creatures at a summer camp by trying to play it cool and not accidentally summoning sentient butt monsters when the time comes to impress my monster crush. And I’m going to do this while dipping a Read more
