Spotted the old Canadian flag while reading a Richard Scarry book to my daughter. “Best Word Book Ever” was published in 1963; Canada adopted the maple leaf flag in 1965 🇨🇦
"So you're really into bronze, huh? Name your three favourite alloys."
I have fallen down this trompe-l'oeil hole four times now despite knowing exactly where it is. A+ level design.
Underrated upshot for devs announcing Switch games: they get to take a cool photo of the handheld console in a tastefully arranged setting.
My dentist described me as “compliant” because I get regular cleanings.
Feeling oddly rebellious now…
Every time Kratos reaches into a sarcophagus I expect a jump scare of a skeleton grabbing him. Hasn’t happened yet but I’m betting on at least one before the end of the game 💀
My daughter figured out how to crawl today 💖
My wife put on Raffi for the baby at home and it kicked me out of Spotify at work. I thought the future would be cooler.

Had to do a double take at this.
(It's a history of Americans in the Spanish Civil War, thankfully.)
Folks who compare Celeste to Super Meat Boy are doing it a disservice imo. It’s more puzzle than reflexes; reminds me a lot of The Swapper (2013). It also portrays mental health struggles in a very raw & honest way. It has such a truthful warm kind positive vibe… I love this game.
Hearthstone friends: I'm enjoying this druid combo deck. Hadronox + Cube + Witching Hour = so many Lich Kings. https://disguisedtoast.com/decklists/3759-witchwood-cube-druid
Shudderwock! Allegedly game-breaking on expansion day zero, might have to try it before it gets nerfed.
Recently finished "Thinking in Systems: A Primer" and absolutely loved it. It belongs with "Understanding Comics" and "The Design of Everyday Things" in the pantheon of books that aren't about games but still teach game design. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18891716-thinking-in-systems
