I've been playing Terraria nonstop for the past several days. Think I've logged over 75 hours with the new 1.3 update that got released.

I remember when I got steam when I was 9. Terraria was my first steam game and I played 129 hours.

I found a disc of Quake II at the Goodwill the otherday for 4$. Its probably still there. Should I grab it?
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

Yeah you should. Who doesn't want to experience some good old Quake.

Doom II just got a new world record set for under 20 minutes.

Should it count, though? I mean, obviously the player isn't human.

Well, of COURSE the player isn't human. We all know John is the demons.
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

Welp. Continuing the trend of 2015 being major suckage, Ty Halderman passed away last month.

Ty was the maintainer of the /idgames archive, and one of the programmers of the original Boom engine. Needless to say, he was a very important member of the Doom community.

RIP, Ty.

Well, been doing some gaming recently.

My wife and I are WAY too into Splatoon. Like, WAY too into it. I'm A+ ranked, and she keeps oscillating between A+ and S. REALLY fun game.

I've also done a bit of Mario Maker, but I'm not that great with making levels. Anyone who's played my CQ stuff knows that!

My wife also got me a 3DS for Christmas, so I've been playing Shovel Knight. That is an amazing game, and really feels like the stuff I used to play when I was a kid. The music is AMAZING, and well worth a listen! Seriously, I'm a WayForward fanboy (woo, Shantae!), but Yacht Club Games gives them a run for their money on the whole semi-retro platformer thing.

Oh, and my wife recently bought herself...... "Akiba's Trip"... Yeah, I know, but I'll be darned if they didn't accurately recreate the entirety of Akiba in that game! I've actually been to several of the shops in the game IRL, and I remember that Duty Free store near the train station. Heck, they even have that electronics stall I remember looking at electronic dictionaries at in the game! It is making her kinda homesick though. One day...
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

Like... this is months old, but doesn't it not count since the player skipped Map32?
EDIT: Nevermind, I'm dumb, it says 30uv

For speedrunning, both of the secret levels are optional. However, everyone cuts through MAP31 because it's faster than finishing MAP15 the normal way.

@Loremaster: Splatoon is an absolute blast! I'm stuck at a B ranking since I just get waaay too into it and it wears me out. Haven't been playing much either because of that.
Haven't played Shovel Knight though. Hear nothing but great things about it though.

Actually, who else here has a 3DS and/or WiiU? I have almost no friends registered.
