Like a book club, but with video games.

Podcast recording soon

I finish my exams this monday, so I’m looking to record sometime this week. I’ll let you guys know in advance, but I suspect that it will be this thursday evening (GMT). THERE I PUT IN THE SIDEBAR ARE YOU HAPPY YOU DINGUSES? I’ll also be streaming among the sleep, which came out recently, and hopefully finally finishing GYP2.

Love, Cats

Moogle calls dibs on streaming Bayonetta 2

So apparently you call dibs to stream a game and stop other people doing it before you by making a blog post about it. Apparently nobody does this, and when they do, everyone ignores it I look forward to being added to that hallowed list of great people.

I have every intention of streaming Bayonetta 2 on release, and if you take this from me I will find you, and I will do horrible things to you. Horrible things, like hiding your keys, or moving your glasses somewhere else when you take a shower. I’ll also work magic on you so that you go into rooms and forget why you went there. It’ll be bad, you don’t want that.

The exception to this is of course if the game is delayed a large amount in Euroland compared with other territories – in which case, fill your boots. And fuck you for getting it early, you dicks.
