I didn't even notice until I was editing it that the first guy I killed in the hold was the guy who killed me on the island, which feels kind of poetic.

I have the day off so I decided to give Doki Doki Literature Club a shot and boy was that a tremendous four hours.

It's a game that I would absolutely recommend - but it comes with some hefty caveats. It will help if you have some familiarity with harem anime or other visual novels (both their general content and mechanics, even if you've not played any others; you've got to be willing to meet the genre halfway on its long periods of clicking through and reading dialogue), and it's also probably not a game to play around normies. The game itself has a content warning ("This game is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed") which does give away the fact that it has some dark turns, particularly one scene quite early in the game.

But I was left speechless by the sheer audacity and creativity of this thing multiple times. I was sitting alone in the house, my jaw dropped, laughing out loud at some of the things it does.

This is a special game, perfectly suited to the medium in which it's told and probably impossible to tell as effectively in any other.

Oh, and it's free.

Not technically a screenshot, but...

I was in voice chat with aniki at the end (from about when I hid on their balcony), but my mic didn't record, so you can only hear him.

Dem's some good Sea of Thieves shots.

FF14's sky is bloody lovely. The stars move across the sky at night (I know it's not the stars moving, shush), clouds cover the sun, every sunset is genuinely different.




GTA 5 had its moments.






And a bonus shot from Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, just because I can't think of any other game that has a pixel-perfect English pub.

I wasn’t talking about your characters.

My character doesn't have a beard, so I've forfeited that contest.

The thought of the pair of you as the twin scourges of the seven seas greatly amuses me. I hope you regularly squabble over which one of you gets to call yourself Orangebeard.

I only took a couple. I really need to take more non-sunset shots, though.


I have set up the nVidia replay capture thing, though, so in future I should be able to grab evidence of our piratical exploits to enthrall and amaze.
