I worked at Best Buy last year for a few months between jobs... It was a fucking mess. The game shelves were always barren because the back room was a mess of unpriced Used games mixed in with new ones. I'd organize it, only to have new shipments carelessly shoved in. We had 15 copies of Shim Megami Tensei 4 from… » 11/23/14 5:22pm Yesterday 5:22pm

The one point the GamerGate dregs always bring up that I 100% agree with is the effect equity social justice advocates have on artistic creativity. If someone wants to create an ethnically accurate homage to medieval Europe, there is nothing wrong with that. If someone wants to create a game set in the criminal… » 11/23/14 4:49pm Yesterday 4:49pm

This looks shopped. I can tell by the pixels and from having seen quite a few shops in my day. There's no way that can be real; these are moulded plastic. Unless the mould itself is shaped like this (meaning there would be at least thousands out there), there's no way this can magically happen. » 11/22/14 9:06am Saturday 9:06am

I'm probably not playing anything. I'm working today, got tomorrow off... I was playing Fire Emblem Awakening, but I'm almost done the game and it's just kinda been a repetitive slog. It's had some minor highs, but as an overall package, I'm not as impressed as many others are. But that could be because I have no idea… » 11/22/14 6:14am Saturday 6:14am

I'm so fucking bored right now. 0_0 And it's not your typical, "I have nothing to do" bored where I could surf the net and learn up on some topic, it's the kinda bored where I have shit to do but I need to wait for others to help me, but they're all busy and I'm waiting and I don't want to risk websurfing in case they… » 11/21/14 11:08am Friday 11:08am

A Glorious Return to Gaming: Why It's Okay To Be a Shut-In

I've been absent from TAY for a while, and possibly for a valid reason. It's because Dyram smells (but not really, you are pleasantly fragrant). I took a step back from online communities and attempted to branch out to more social pursuits - specifically, larping and politics. But try as I might, it just didn't take. » 11/20/14 11:10am Thursday 11:10am

Deal Alert: Arcade Block Subscription for 25% Off

So I saw an ad for this Arcade Block thing (https://www.nerdblock.com/arcade) on my Facebook, and I checked it out. Normally these mystery box things are full of cheap crap from completely unrelated franchises, but this Arcade Block one seems legit. I'm actually really surprised. I went to sign, and it came to $35 a… » 11/16/14 4:37pm 11/16/14 4:37pm

Thanksgiving already happened, accursed Yankee! #CanadianSupremacyComplex But honestly, I don't really do Christmas. I probably won't for my kids, either. It's become more of a quiet, contemplative, family dinner kind of affair after growing up with lots of presents and lots of familial in-fighting. I don't really… » 11/01/14 7:47pm 11/01/14 7:47pm

Bipolar? You're either polar or you're not. Pick one and stop pretending. </idiot> I have been living all my life with mental illness. The doctor's have been all over the place on diagnoses since I was a kid; ADHS, schizophrenia, depression, manic depression... I was recentlky diagnosed with generalized anxiety… » 10/27/14 6:58pm 10/27/14 6:58pm
