The best thing I can say about Dishonored is that I wish it was an actual book. I like the world-building in theory but in execution having every story play out away from from the player and through text is a terrible way to do it. I think the gameplay is fine (for some reason, I've always leaned more towards Deus Ex but I realize that Dishonored's systems are really cool when done right). But the story left me wishing its potential had been realized in another medium.

Trespasser always looked great in magazines, but then again, I was a sucker for anything advertised in a magazine. I'll have to watch your playthrough. I've seen a few minutes of the game here and there but I've never really seen anything in depth.

That was a fun stream, especially watching you lose your mind in the labyrinth. Great writeup too, Zeep.

Ignore @zombiepie. It's just good life advice in general but especially applicable today.

I need to give FFVI a better chance. I made it halfway through it, intended on beating it, but never did. It never stuck with me as much as FFVII-X and even FFXII, which even I'll admit is some sort of RPG blasphemy.

Okay, I'm actually sort of with you on the ranch on pizza thing, because I regularly dip my pizza in ranch and it's not that much of a stretch to just replace the sauce with it. That said, I think I'd do a blend of that and a white sauce, simply because I think the ranch would be overpowering? I'd try it, at least. I've had weirder on pizza (horseradish or mandarin oranges, for example, and I hold to it pepperoncini is the great unsung pizza topping no one uses).

And the pico de gallo is an interesting idea. It's not even all that far from a traditional pasta sauce (at least in America), just with a kick. I could get behind that.

Good stream! Gunfire Reborn's all right. Kinda wish the unlocks came a little faster, but I'm pretty terrible at it so it might just be me.

Some other recent-ish rogue-lites worth checking out are Neon Abyss (platform shooter, neon aesthetic, really neat boss designs) and Nova Drift (top-down wave based space shooter with fast-unlocking run-based abilities). Nova Drift takes some real getting used to as far as the controls, but it's a neat idea.

Que Serah, Serah.

That's it. That's all I really wanted to write. Good blog.

And re: the GBCER, message me when you play/watch Club Dead. I want to rub my hands and maybe even twirl my mustache menacingly.

Sometimes I wonder if I played the same game as other people when it comes to Grandia II. I liked the original but I can't stand the second game's protagonist to the point where it soured me on the whole experience. Anyways, good write-up, and pretty much the final nail in the coffin as to me playing 12 Minutes anytime soon.

Dragon Quest V might be my favorite of the series. Always meant to return to the 3DS version.
