Bought one of the water bottles when they came back on sale yesterday and, other than the fact it's $15 to ship to Texas for some reason, I'm really looking forward to taking it everywhere.

Also, happy birthday Jess!

Happy Birthday, Jess!

RE4 is still a banger. I have high hopes for the remake of RE4.

"Suitcase Tetris" is still the most fun / badass inventory mechanic in any game.

Speaking of mansplaining: The higher bitrate resolved the compression artifacts quicker once the image stabilised, but you'd probably wanna increase the compression quality (not the bitrate) to solve the underlying issue that's causing it to break up in the first place.

Watching now with spatial audio on my iPhone and it’s weird. It’s cool for watching sports on Apple TV, though.

Btw (I’ll say this here bc the same ppl prob read comments and won’t see the edit)

In a comment on the Nintendo Direct stream, I named Koei Tecmo as the main support studio for Nintendo games like BotW, and that was actually Monolith Soft.

Speaking of the lid for the flask, has anyone found an aftermarket lid that fits? I've ordered two so far and have had a hard time. I know they're out there, but I think so many put that it fits that's it's now hard to find ones that aren't just throwing it in the item description to get bought.

Happy (now late) birthday!

I remember really not enjoying Hotline Miami 2 mainly because the maps were so big and you were getting killed from off screen enemies way more, it felt more bad design hard rather than challenging hard that Hotline Miami 1 was. Didn't love the story stuff either but that was a secondary issue.

Agree with @rorie, the RE games are more fun for me when I don't have to worry about health and resources. I've been playing all the mainline RE games alongside my wife recently and just using Cheat Engine on them. My wife likes adventure games, and some of the RE games are basically just Nancy Drew games with zombies.

Hotline Miami 2 started with a pointless rape scene that was not part of the story and just existed to be shocking, which revealed the developers to be harmful internet edgelords, or worse. How could nobody working for this website remember that? The game was banned in some countries because of this crap.

I can't believe that Rorie referenced my second-favorite comic of all time, WE3!
