Time for a proper !

Hi, I'm Phil. I'm 25, and live alone in the middle of nowhere in Poland (which in itself is a middle of nowhere).

I play a variety of games, though recently metroidvanias (Bloodstained hype) and platformers (CELESTE.) have dominated. Plus whatever comes out on Switch.

My timesink genres are fighting games (Guilty Gear) and Monster Hunter (my all-time favourite).

And I play FFXIV, so there's that.

Other than that, I like cycling. And wall climbing.

:)

Just randomly remembered that time I got humiliated at DDR by some random kid in front of my crush whom I had just bragged to lol

Ok so I dunno if yall seen the gbvs OST cover, but musician Zooey has me all kinds of worked up

speaking of AAA price hikes:

go play Hades and/or One Step From Eden. They're excellent roguelite games you can get at frankly criminal price points.

specifically, Hades if you want you want really interesting storytelling, and OSFE if you want mostly hard, twitchy action gameplay

huh, I've played 120 hours of granblue fantasy: versus

when did that even happen

possibly too much information 

having the freedom to just walk around my place naked is great

fuck having roommates lol

It seems that sometimes, genuine enthusiasm is indistinguishable from shameless bragging

re: 30-day video game music challenge, day 9 

Ok so licensed music, right.

I don't know if you know this, but there was a Jungle Book rhythm game in 2000: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jung

I got a pirated copy from my uncle (???????) and I played a TON of it with my sister.

In German.

So here's the German version of Bare Necessities, deal with it:

re: 30-day video game music challenge, day 8 

I'm honestly drawing a blank on shooter music. I don't really play the genre, and the ones that I did I don't remember any of the music from. :^)

So have a perfunctory Doom theme: youtube.com/watch?v=BSsfjHCFos

today I made a spreadsheet to track the grind I'm doing in granblue fantasy so there's that

all caps 

YOU FAIL IT!

YOUR SKILL IS NOT ENOUGH
SEE YOU NEXT TIME
BYE-BYE!

why the fuck is "the maya mysteriously disappeared" like a thing you hear online in those pseudo science mystery channels??? like, we know where the Maya are, they're in Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize. there's like 6 million people who speak Mayan languages with a clear cultural continuity from like 900ad to modern day through the colonial period. they're right there, you can go talk to them, I'm sure some of them are lovely people

food 

I haven't ordered pizza from my favourite place in nearly 8 weeks

a mistake I have now rectified

yo Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is on sale on Steam right now and you should play it!!! i kickstarted it back in 2015. it is by a studio called Kiro’o Games, based in Cameroon and the first game dev company from Central Africa, with a team that is entirely self-taught!!! it draws on multiple different African mythologies and while the outer shell is a little rough around the edges, the mechanical core is solid and it’s well worth the play!!!

30 Day Video Game Music Challenge Day 8 

DOOM (2016).

Seriously, I can't think of a more fitting shooter soundtrack. It's brash, intense, and great at stealing the show amongst the in-game carnage. Plus, the number of nods and easter eggs in the music (references to the original theme and the "666" added in one of the songs if you look at the waveforms via oscilloscope) is really freaking neat. Mick Gordon did a great job of taking the old-school and mixing it into something new and unique.

I still love listening to this one.

also, that new-ish feature on youtube where if there's timestamps in the description of a video, they're used to divide the playback bar into labelled segments

it still works on videos that just happened to have timestamps in the past

which demonstrates once more to me that Plain Text is the ultimate backwards-compatible format
