Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

If you played Spintires you’d understand how proud I am to have finished the Flood map (on normal difficulty)

5 February

I don’t know how it made financial sense for Letterpress to add bots this late in the game’s life but I absolutely love that they did.

6 February

9 February

Trying to play Mankind Divided after Dishonored 2 was a terrible idea. So many annoyances stand out from comparison.

10 February

Do they sell a variant of Munchkin where the cards are big enough for humans to read? It’s a lot of fun, but you sometimes need a telescope.

11 February

I played seven board games this week, watched dozens more on YouTube, and now I’m having board games ideas 🙄

I like that there’s no programming involved, though.

RT @astroneergame: #screenshotsaturday - A tease for the next patch + update. 🎆

Nooooooooo, my 21-day streak! I’d done two thirds of this Sunday and forgot I needed to finish it

Miraculously realized that just because the Monday crossword was published at 12am my time didn’t mean it was 12am in NYC — streak saved!

Ohh Dirt Rally PSVR is out today and I want it but I already own it on two other platforms but I want it but it’s 50€ but I want it arghhhh.

Whenever I get a streak over 2 weeks on the NYT crossword it becomes a chore I resent.

Games with daily challenges 👍

Emphasis on streaks 👎

Game shop already making hell of a profit on games I’m too lazy to put on eBay but not enough—gotta upsell me hard on insurance & preorders.

Dirt Rally on PSVR is fantastic 😍 and it was well worth buying the game a third time.

Though of course I’m more impatient than ever to get a VR headset on my PC so I can play with a lot of much needed supersampling.

19 February

Dirt Rally VR is the most fun I’ve ever had driving an imaginary car, even if I have to go lie down after an hour.

@DaleBeran/4chan-the-skeleton-key-to-the-rise-of-trump-624e7cb798cb">From 4chan to GamerGate to Trump: what we need is a deradicalization program for white males.

RT @kirkhamilton: My main take on Horizon Zero Dawn is holy shit look how they animated her legs when you spin the camera while on horseback https://t.co/o9w7hlVXVQ

Of all the shit Milo Yiannopoulos said, it’s a bit disturbing that he’s falling on what may legitimately be his coping strategy as an abuse victim.

RT @yashar: When Simon and Schuster signed Milo, Roxane Gay gave up a pile of money and cancelled her deal in protest. Here are her thoughts…. https://t.co/qOIdtB6TbS

RT @winter_wk: & it sure as fuck isn’t because anyone cares about kids. He’s going down because the right’s homophobia could no longer abide him

Yay! The Last Guardian came in the mail!

Oh, it has a drunk, laggy camera and I’m gonna get a migraine in ten minutes.

Goddammit I thought I had figured out the puzzle and Trico jumped into the (spoiler) while I was looking the other way.

22 February

Looking at a photo of a T150 wheel, I thought “huh, weird, mine isn’t blue.” Oh, wait, it is — but I’ve only used it in VR where it isn’t.

RT @CThursten: This was one of those spectacular ‘but-what-if’ images, and then I saw the googly eyes. [twitter.com]

(You can pry my petty Mass Effect nitpicks from my cold dead hands.)

Bit of trivia I googled while drafting this tweet: distance to Andromeda is “only” 25 Milky Ways, if I got my math right. Would have thought it was more.

I mean, we shouldn’t be able to cross a single Milky Way in 600 years, but oh well.
