I like my 8bitdo brand controller quite a bit, d-pad and all. I wonder if this wireless receiver is worth a crap lag-wise.

Pretty sure one of the best Castlevania songs, resting largely on the strength of the chorus at 0:45 that sounds like the "good guys prevail" part of an 80s buddy cop movie where all the bad guys get their asses kicked and arrested in a montage at the end, is exclusive to the X68000 CV (and its subsequent re-releases).

Friday the 13th part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan


I had to Google this because I thought it was a joke. It's real.

... How was it?

 

 

I thought it was a blast as far as schlocky 80s slashers go! Like, there's almost no way the rest of the series (I've only seen this and the first one) is as much fun or I think there would be a larger fandom surrounding it. The funniest part is thinking of Jason as an agent of Christian God, because the degree to which he kills people for like base Christian "sins" is sort of absurd. Like I know a lot of slasher flicks are like this but it is really intense in this one.

Here is a list of 23 movies I've watched in isolation (outside of Mig's twitch movie club), like 90% for the first time. Recommend me one movie, and *to narrow it down* it has to be something you've personally seen for the first time in the past couple of months.

 

I went on a climbing documentary binge recently. All of them were good, but Dawn Wall was the best. It's about 2 dudes free climbing in Yosemite. Unlike Free Solo, they are somewhat sane and have ropes for safety. 

 

 

 

Nice. I haven't even seen Free Solo, but I do find the world of climbing to be fascinating.

Wow, Daicon looks so rad that it almost seems like a parody of someone's *idea* of raditude.

 

Not trying to pun on "rad(ish)" but there's that too.
