The jokes run thick and fast and even with some of the subject matter being particularly dark, it always shows a level of humanity that's missing in a lot of games

All of the characters, even while representing a trope, are never one dimensional, and they're all extremely well voice acted, and the microexpressions in the character models are top tier.

All in all, an excellent game, a true sequel to the first in the series and only improved in the execution.

Just finished the game, highly recommend it.

The art style is so creative, every area feels unique and it's all so incredibly varied across the board. You play from parkland woods to neon casinos and patchwork landscapes to psychedelic light shows.

Every major boss fight is unique in mechanism and design from cooking game shows to surfing whirlpools, and the plot was gripping and fun

SOOOOOO the fleabag merch just dropped πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

completely psyched to be a part of this (fleabag is so rad!!!) & it's a HUGE deal to me personally, too - after dropping out of uni for mental illness, this project FINALLY helped me upgrade my ancient art tablet and kick off my teen dreams of being an Actual Fuckin Artist πŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ–€

This game is incredibly chill, you get the slow progression of building and researching new parts for your train, while travelling along an endless rail through the void. You can move along as fast or slow as you want, and it really only requires a little planning ahead with upgrades

This looks like a really cool game, Void Train, where you build a train in a void while fighting off interdimensional space Nazi and void creatures

after learning about a technique for surface chaining a pattern onto woven fabric, I'm now looking at Celtic knot generators....

I also like that there's 13k views of a a 7 and a half hour video released 3 hours ago

Oh man, I love Noah Caldwell-Gervais' documentaries. When he says he's giving us a "Thorough Look At Resident Evil", it's -especially- thorough

Look, I’m not trying to be alarmist, but this terrifies me. This is what COVID-19 does to your body and why it can kill

Just a cave full of loose ends I'm going to ignore

I've got a series of blog posts going into the structural details of different knitting stitches. Today I posted an explanation of the structure of m1 (the increase that involves lifting and knitting the bar between two stitches on the row below.)

This has been a pretty successful experiment. I had 10g sample sachets of the two flavours that I added to my tin of regular English Breakfast, and it adds just enough flavour to notice, and add variety, and isn't overpowering. About a 1:12.5 ratio

Me being unreasonably irritated at a tutorial video for drafting wool being advertised as "ASMR" but the whole video is a chirpy background tune, and zero actual sound.
