    If you buy Necromunda Hired Gun on sale during one of the many, many 40K sales that happen throughout the year at an extreme discount knowing that you're getting a low budget strange amalgamation of Doom 2016 (without the interesting enemies) with looter shooter mechanics you'll probably have a...

    Final Fantasy Origins is the hardest I've laughed at a video game trailer since the Marilyn Manson Dragon Age Origins trailer or the incredible Duke Nukem trailer from some random even like 12-13 years ago. The dialog was so bad that I thought it had to be satire. The main character looking...

    Is income inequality unjust, and if so, where is the injustice?

    I read an article about how Amazon execs are worried they may run out of workers willing to work for Amazon based on the incredible churn they have. Something like 150% of their workforce yearly. It's insane. There's like...a way...you can stop that from happening.....

    Gas Bandit's Political Thread V: The Vampire Likes Bats

    Sirs, we need to figure out how to change the orbit of a planet that weighs seven septillion tons and is traveling sixty-seven thousand miles per hour to battle climate change. "Can't we use less fossil fuels" Impossible.

    So I'm giving that 5e D&D game Solastra a try. It's so fucking quaint so far that I can't help but love it. Though I guess I'm surprised that pragmatic character traits just mean my wizard bitches about money all the time and my half-elf fighter that has a violence as his lowest trait still...

    Canadian Politics

    Man, you know Kenney is floundering because he's banging on about equalization payments (a-fucking-gain, the system he created while the finance minister in Ottawa) and some mythical referendum that's going to change the legislation in Ottawa. Dipshit, even Albertans fucking know we can't change...

    Man, all three characters are really fun to play in Griftlands. I like the differences in all their combat decks. If I have one complaint it's that all the negotiation decks are very similar, but I guess that's the downside trying to make 6 different unique decks with tons of options for each...

    Solasta is a 5th edition D&D game? What the fuck? Why isn't that being shouted from the clouds? I had no idea. Cool, it's on Gamepass, one of the legit best services in PC gaming.

    The third character you unlock in Griftlands keeps absolutely cracking me up. Right now I'm having to prove to a drug dealer that I'm cool in a negotiation battle. That's funny. His first optional quest choices were between going to fight club or a beach party. I chose the beach party. I licked...

    TTRPGs are cool and all, but you know, I'm old and being able to organize that kind of thing has become a thing of the past.

    Random Video Game Crap

    So I was thinking about wrestling, since that's basically all I watch for TV now (AEDUB). Most wrestling video games come at it like it's a real sport, fighting and doing damage to your opponent so you can pin them in what is generally the least fun you can have playing a video game (suck a dick...

    I fucking love this game right now, though I know I'm going to burn out on it eventually. I need to see if it's on Switch, because this could be my game before bed. I now have both a story mode, with branching paths and 3 characters and a more familiar mode called Brawl which is basically...

    Griftlands, it's Slay the Spire with more Borderlands and an interesting mechanic where you get boons and banes depending on who likes or dislikes you. It's excellent. These games are catnip to me.
