First thing’s first, TAY. Did you see this adorable butt dumpling of a boar? Just look at how he emerges from the ocean like a terror of the deep, runs straight to freedom, but then turns right back around to cause a ruckus on those humans.

I love him.

I just hope no one got hurt.

Now imagine such a fine creature troubling your favourite in-game store. Because it’s National Retailer Month and I can only think of this boar running through a Homegoods, trampling the pre-made cocoa mixes and shattering the dishes. In my mind, he’s also running through a Uniqlo and he tried on the cutest military green jacket. What a guy.

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • I recently finished Yo-kai Watch, which had some of the best little stores in-game. Shoppers’ Row had food options, ramen shop and a bookstore. So fun! What’s your favorite store in games? Items, weapons, food.. etc? What? You craft so you too good for pre-made!?
  • Any standout shops in your gaming adventures?
  • And as I do almost every year where I secretly try to compile data on you guys, we’ll do something a little bit different in asking for your Chinese zodiac animals. This year, figure out your Pokemon zodiac and let us know if you agree :
