The name's Mandrake. I left birdsite in late 2017 and I've been part of Elekk's community ever since. I mostly toot about #gameing news (especially #indiegames), what I've been playing recently, and whenever games are being given away for free.
Nuclear Throne, initial thoughts
Started playing #NuclearThrone the other day and I think I might prefer it to Enter the Gungeon? It's much faster paced, constantly throws weapons/power-ups at you, and perfect if you've only got 15 minutes and want to shoot some stuff up

BREAKING: a federal judge has ruled that suspicionless searches of travelers’ cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices when we cross the U.S. border are unconstitutional.
This is an enormous victory for privacy. https://www.eff.org/press/releases/federal-court-rules-suspicionless-searches-travelers-phones-and-laptops
Luke is too pure and innocent for this world. #ProfessorLayton
Moonlighter final thoughts
Finally finished #Moonlighter last night. The twist ending is quite clever with how it explains the rougelike mechanics in-universe. Hopefully there'll be a sequel which continues the story and adds greater depth to the shop system and characters.
Also, you cannot pet the dog in Moonlighter, but you can have a friendly slime who follows you everywhere and helps out by poisoning monsters.
Reggie Fils-Aimé recently gave a business/marketing lecture at Cornell University, following which someone naturally asked him a question about Mother 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7Bh0VkNa2Y
His response: "Luckily for me, this is a decision that I'm no longer part of!"
