Gonna get a bit more into mobile games just to have something to routinely do with my phone that isn't social media; suggestions welcome

Just wanna not get mocked and othered by the media I engage with, thanks

I sold my Vita when P4G was rumored to come out on Steam, but I think I'll wait until a story within that universe comes out that openly accepts a character's non-heteronormative identity -- without caveats -- to start engaging with these games again

I also appreciated the end of the TV series, both as a reflection of its diminishing budget and a surprisingly direct acknowledgment that creative writing often results in a problem-solving conversation the writer has with themself

I watched End of Evangelion last night and (standard anime caveats aside) loved it, specifically the reading where Shinji is an obsessive fan who lacks the ability to constructively introspect or identify avenues for positive change

The hardware itself looks like a mid-'00s comedy caricature of what futuristic consumer hardware might look like. Maybe this reflects poorly on the IKEA pressboard decor that surrounds me, but it doesn't look like it fits anywhere

The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality continues to add a lot of great games. They have Celeste now, which is probably the best platformer of all time. Some other favorites of mine include They Bleed Pixels, Super Hexagon, A Short Hike, and Oxenfree. There's also heaps of tabletop games and asset packs for game devs. You need to pick this bundle up, it is the best deal in the history of gaming.

They've raised almost $5M now for BLM-related causes.

For real, the trailer for Goodbye Volcano High had me feeling so validated as a weirdo animal-people webcomic artist. At last, my subgenre has a place on the world stage

I've been watching this stream; it's a stretch for an artist to say this, I realize, but I think my initial interest in a game depends proportionally on how divorced its aesthetic is from reality

Figured I'd try testing out DS emulation on my media PC, and now we're a good half-hour into this.

Today I played through 6 chapters of the Tekken 7 story mode; it's my first time playing anything at all from this series, I have no idea whatsoever about what's going on, but I'm strangely captivated by everything I've seen so far

There's a bundle the Racial Justice and Equality here:

The profits are split 50/50 between NAACP and the Community Bail Fund and the bundle has a frankly unreasonable amount of video games and assets.

Game bundle in support of Black Lives Matter 

I'm in it. All the money goes to BLM and the National Bail Fund Network.

Pass it on.

please boost, boston protests, uspol 

Folks are getting arrested in boston tonight, if you have the resources please send support to the MA bail fund

Thinking out loud about laptops :servbot_at_work: 

Just finished my basic-ass amateur refurbishment of the 2015 laptop, it's now running Prime95 at 60C like a champ. I plan to spend the rest of my early evening testing and prodding at it for a bit, after which I'll snap a bunch of photos, throw it on eBay, and buy a decent/upgradable fightstick with the revenues. :servbot_exuberant:

“Division All Stars -Division Battle Anthem-” is the longest song in the Taiko no Tatsujin library and it's become the song me and @Lobst end our sessions with. It has twelve MCs and it goes incredibly hard.

Think I'll make that new FFXIV alt during my stream today! I'll be starting at the top of the hour, feel free to come by and hang out: 🔸

Alright, here’s the first chapter on my guide on how to get into fighting games!!! It’s just an intro to start with, but it has some important info!
