I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.

Getting Swole with Idols

I have some things coming up next month that are going to leave absolutely zero time for games, so I have been ignoring virtually every other project on my “to-do” list in favor of trying to finish Tokyo Mirage Sessions#FE. … Continue reading

New year, old hobbies

Today, I am a man.
