just saw someone refer to a PS4 as a "bloodborne machine"

Bloodborne wasn't the first game with trick weapons, Perfect Dark has an alt-fire mode for every weapon, including grenades

one thing i gotta keep trying to remember is that most of the people i've known who have an "intimidatingly cool" vibe actually feel a little lonely and alienated because people are too intimidated to open up to them

cool friends, i'm gonna be earnest and enthusiastic with you, brace yourself

honestly the best life decision i've ever made is deciding to assume everyone i meet may not be perfect, but means well and is genuinely doing their best

i've been very disappointed once or twice but it's still 200% paid off


Playing the Ocarina of Time modhack for Super Mario 64 and whenever I get stuck my partner opens up their Ocarina of Time official strategy guide in an attempt to help

This is a friendly reminder that when two people on the fediverse have a disagreement, you don't *have* to express your opinion about it in their mentions, use the opportunity to make a loosely-related political point, or join a spiralling public drama about it.

It can be hard to break the habits we formed on platforms where techbros have monetised our negative emotions, divisions, and innate desire to belong. But your activist energy can be better directed, and your mental health will benefit.

Upset to discover that JK Rowling is anti-trans? Need something to fill that hole now that Harry Potter is cancelled?

May I recommend KA Applegate and her Animorphs books which are (imo) much better and deeper. Fun fact: she has a trans daughter who she's very supportive of

Security through obscurity: the hatch on my partner's car is broken and can only be opened by applying pressure to a specific point and using the handle

if you think of something nice to say to someone, then just say it, you will both feel good
