And some others probably, most don't update as often as I'd like. (Every frame a painting for example :)

Titanic vs Avatar (2020)

Titanic was just Jaws without a shark.

Bun-Bo Forum RPG

This is about the pace I'm comfortable with. One post every couple of months.

Game Magazines

I think the funny captions was a staple of gaming magazines back in the days. Because I remember Super Power a nintendo magazine I read in the mid-nineties also just going to town with the captions.

I basically still have my Nintendo-Magasinet from 1989-1993-ish and then Super Power from then on until it became Super PLAY and then eventually I stopped subscribing and it stopped existing (I assume).

I should take some random pictures.

Until then I did a blog post elsewhere and uploaded some images from an old issue (1991) of Nintendo-Magasinet to my locker that I will now share:


An image of the upcoming Game Boy F1 racing and it's four-player(!) capabilities.

Mega Man at some trade show in 1991

(this one's about the new 16-bit Nintendo machine that will be called "SFX" in the US. Or at least that's what the people writing in the magazine think. At the time. (this is in reference to the SNES)

Top games of February-March 1991

And then a bunch of Super Mario Bros. 3 spreads:



RMN Attemptcast, Episode 0

Currently an aim is to make this a monthly thing and I think them being about an hour was pretty good too. So I should probably see if I can recruit volunteers to guest on a next episode.

[size=100]Final Fantasy VIII - The review[/size]

This feels like it might have been twenty years late.

'member FF8? I 'member.

Damn I was hyped back then too. And damn the graphics were nice. And damn it fell apart in the final act.

Goaling It 2019

Was there a goaling it 2018? If there was we need to find it and link it because after all the most fun is always to see how hard we failed our goals a year later.

2019 gaming diary

Over five minutes at work I wrote down a couple of games I should get to and hopefully will get to this year.

The Long Dark (played it in early access but haven't since it came out ages ago!)
The Banner Saga 3 (I already have this installed, it's going to get played)
Pillars of Eternity 2 (I got a bit into this but I need to finish this epic of a godsdamn rpg)
Kerbal Space Program (years after everyone's stopped talking about it I should also give it a try to see what the fuss was about five years ago)
Frozen Synapse 2 (My most hyped game of 2018 didn't get nearly enough playtime from me)
Quadrilateral Cowboy (one of my most hyped games of 2016 still hasn't had enough playtime from me)
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada (giant spaceships in 40k. I didn't ever remember I owned this, but it has to be tried at least)
BattleTech (kickstarted this and played a fair bit, but it's been patched a lot since and I should just get back into it. I just know it's going to be a long ride)
Chime Sharp (this is a puzzle game I shoulda played by now. Original Chime was great)
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (another epic I'm dreading to get into. I know it was not as well-received as Human Revolution)
Dust and Salt (I just heard about this randomly and it sounds like my jam, so I have to remember to also play my jam)

I wonder how many of these I'll get to over 2019. As it looks now I'm mainly just continuing my constant rotation of Plunkbat - Rocket League - Rainbow 6: Siege - Overwatch.
