Hello there TAY, how are you all doing this wonderful Tuesday? Because I am DOING GREAT! Had my entrance exams last Sunday and I rocked it. I was honestly surprised by how easy the whole thing was, finishing it with hours to spare. So ye, I’m in a very good mood and I hope you are too.

Haloween is gone, no more spooky scary skeletons, unless you’ve bought Soma like I did (and with money from Steam trading cards no less. Why do people buy these, I’ll never know). I’ve been meaning to play that for a good while and now is finally the time. I also bought Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 and I’m in love with it, especially now that my thumb pain is no longer a concern. I can’t find a soul to play online with but hey, that’s what friends are for right?

Besides that, I’ve been getting a “Thread Stuck in Device Driver” error lately that seems to be related to my graphics card. Really not looking forward to buying yet another one, especially given that I just bought a new fan. Oh well, here’s some GG tunes to celebrate I guess :P

Baiken is Love, Baiken is Dustloop

And here’s today’s questions:

  • I was playing Ys the other day and something hit me: Devs don’t really make “Thank You For Playing Screens” often these days. Do you remember them? If so, what are your favorites?
  • Speaking of old things: Favorite Cheat Codes? Anything that makes the game silly for me works, my personal favorite: Canadian Laser Bears in Age of Mythology.
  • How’s your GOTY list so far?
  • What old relics do you still hold on to this day? Consoles, old music CDs, what have you.

Now go and Talk Amongst Yourselves!
