Which games are you all playing? I'm a bit all over the place right now. Y'all on PS4, Xbox, both? I really want to get a Switch but I'm a bit over spent recently. :(

I intend to or have recently played:
  • FFXIV
  • Horizon Zero Dawn
  • GTA5
  • Have a bunch of Assassins Creed games to still dig into
  • Want to try Paragon
  • Infamous First Light
  • Kingdom Hearts 1.5

I think that's it for now. I'm blanking of course as I write this.
Currently playing:
Pillars of Eternity - This is just so old school and amazing. Never thought I would get to play a game like this again and on console to boot. At over 100 hours now so taking a breather before continuing.

Final Fantasy XIV - Let me sub lapse on this one. Need to take a good long break as the issues with the game are starting to get me down and I've played this A LOT.

Waframe - Back into this in a big way at the moment. Good old Warframe.

Planned upcoming:
Nioh expansions - Need to be bought and played

Horizon Zero Dawn - On the list but unsure about this one so will probably wait until it's very cheap.

MGS 5 - Bought this for a fiver and liked what I played. Just waiting for the right time to dive in.

Edit: Top of the page! Don't know if this is still a thing but I'm going for it:

^Nice pictures but one of those has pubes which is a big no no afaik.

Just 100%'d Hollow Knight. Lovely game if you're into Metroidvania. Last boss felt impossible when I tried it yesterday but I one-shot it today so I guess I was just tilted.

Still have to finish BoTW, Witcher 3 and Pillars of Eternity. But Mario Odyssey is coming out soon and that's going to take precedent over anything else. I feel like I'll never be able to finish huge 50 hours+ games because I always get distracted.

Holy shit. I spend a few hours away and missed so much @_@* lol

Hi Raxus! If you need some tips for gorging yourself on food, I'm great at it. I'm a good stress eater. :p That said, I finally got back to the gym this morning, it felt sooooo good.

Thanks everyone for the gaming info I'm going to check out all the ones I haven't heard of. And now you're all making me desperately want to pick up a Switch.

Hahaha I'm a stress eater too. I think thats why I ballooned well over 300 pounds. Now... i've learned how to deal with stress and shrunk half my body weight. But! I miss cake... and ice cream.. fuck it, I miss a lot of things.=(

I want a Switch but outside of Mario(looks incredible!), Zelda, and Mario Kart I don;t see anything that really interest me. I'm hoping Nintendo actually supports the Switch and not abandon it like the Wii U.

Mine are simple right now. Gain weight. My metabolism is nuts and I am trying to reach 150 to 160 pounds at the moment. I am 5'9 and weigh 126.8 at the moment.
I'm extremely jealous. I'd love to have a high metabolism. I'm weighing in at the 150s I believe.

If I could put the weight on for you I would... I love to eat, but eating doesn't love me

I HEAR YA. But I saw your before/after pics. You look freakin' fantastic!! I was like "shit I am definitely going back to the gym tomorrow" lol. And yeah, I got a Wii U 3 months before they announced they were abandoning it. But I still love the games I have on it. I'm sure with the popularity of the Switch it'll get a longer lifespan.

Raxis you should look into the bars Cady gave Regina George in Mean Girls. :)

I love this time of the year. It's cold but not too cold. It's sunny outside yet somewhat chilly. Lots of coffee everywhere. The food... the holidays, and more food!

'tis cuddling season! ^_^
If only I had someone to cuddle with!

I platinumed Ys VIII about a week and a half ago. Great game.

Finished Superstar Saga 3DS, great game.

And now I went back to FFXII Zodiac Age. Plowed through the story and got two dungeons left, now I'm doing some hunts and going back for Espers.

Dunno what I'll play next. Some games others have mentioned: I only played the story of Hyrule Warriors Legends. While i like the game a lot, the adventure mode was crazy intimidating and it seems to be insanely grindy (level was boosted to 255 wtf??), I still need to finish Bravely Default, much less second (chapter 7). I'm waiting for the Goty edition of Horizon.
Adventure mode is massive but not really grindy. I have played the game for 174 hours and haven't had to grind at all.

Thank you =) I've been struggling a lot lately with self image and even going to the gym has become an issue as I just don't care but I'm getting back into it.

Ohh I would have been pissed. The Wii U had so much potential, I really wanted to play Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze(LOOOOOOOVE DKC!) and Mario Kart but couldn't justify it. I'm hoping Nintendo learned its lesson and gives the Switch way more first party support than they did with the U. It's like they just gave up

What were your favorite games on the Wii U?

Since losing a ton of weight I can't deal with the coldness that well. Even high 40s to low 50s makes me ice cold =(

Holiday food > food all year around. The best desserts, and best food in general. It's like comfort food at its finest.

If only I had someone to cuddle with!
I think it's time we start GAF Cuddle Club for the singles here.

DOWN for cuddle club! *makes a sign up sheet*... Tada!

Wii U games I have (it's short):

Mario Kart 8
Mario 64 (downloaded)
Zelda 1 (downloaded)
Super Mario Bros Wii U
A bunch of older Wii games...and crap I can't remember the others right now but it's not many more. But all the Mario titles are of course where it's at. I'm holding off on Zelda BOTW till I obtain a Switch...for now.

You have a Wii U too? What do you have for it?

I'm not a huge fan of 4 players in the new Mario games since you can kill each other by bouncing off one another and such. It stresses me out lol. But I've been doing it single player and loving it so far as Peach. She's my jam. 4 player Mario Kart is amazing though. There's a gay bar in SF called Brewcade where it's all old school arcade games and a giant screen for Mario Kart 8. As long as you're ordering a beer you can play Mario Kart for free. It's really fun to play with new people but next to each other.

I'm not going to even talk about holiday food. It's so good but I'm dreading it :O

No Wii U here. I wanted one for DKC Tropical Freeze and Mario kart but couldn't justify it. I have a Wii though! I'm itching to buy Mario Galaxu 1&2 again. LOVED those games!

Extremely jealous though. Mario kart looks like a ton of fun, and nothing beats Mario 64. One of the finest games of all time. Loved Zelda 64 also. I agree fully about the NSMB games. I... am guilty of jumping on peoples heads to kill them. After all, its you or me... and I choose the latter. lmao. Lets meet up in life at some point so I can jump on Peach's head.. err co-op ;)

I'm going to that bar now, confirmed!

I'm not going to even talk about holiday food. It's so good but I'm dreading it :O
YES! Lets talk about Christmas goodness. The cookies, cakes, pies, eggnog! The varieties are endless at this point haha. It's the stuff I can't eat but I can dream! Though I make banging macaroni and cheese so thats what I'm looking forward to.

Cuddle club sounds nice.

@JCX and Bet: Which Gundam animes have you two seen

Gundam Wing / Endless Waltz
Gundam 00
G Gundam
08th MS Team
Mobile Suit Gundam - only the early parts though since Toonami stopped showing it after 9/11

I tend more towards the Wing/00 spectrum of Gundam. 08th MS Team bored me when I saw it as a kid, but I would probably enjoy it more now.

Also shout out to The Big O, starring the best Batman.

Are you guys streaming these? I have totally lost touch with anime and need something to crawl back in with. If so, which service(s)?

G Gundam
Gundam SeeD
Gundam SeeD Destiny
ZZ Gundam
Gundam Unicorn
Gundam AGE
Gundam Build Fighters
Stardust Memory
O8Th Team
Char's Counter Attack

These are the shows that I've watched in whole, so every episode. I got bored of the others or didn't like them.

I was such an anime whore I consumed way to much for a while.

Prince of Tennis
Intial D
Ranma 1/2
Sailor Moon

Like I watched these things back to back and if some people dont know these things are huge, I lived off energy drinks and like 4 hours a sleep a night and only ate like once a day.

Has anyone heard from DOWN? Usually I see him around here or on Instagram but nothing. Kinda worried about him.

Gibbs, you and I need together and spend a day cooking and baking.
YES! That would be incredible! I'm so much better at cooking than I am at baking.

I just made homemade stuffing too.

Speaking of baking, I made a peach and blueberry pie with brown sugar last night.

It's really good.
You just had to go and outdo me didn't you Via.... hahaha I'm joking! Blueberry is everything. EVERYTHING!!!!!

When we meet you'll have to bake something! I'll cook! We need Beth to be apart too!

We should do a Table for 3 discussing Gaf and other things.

I’m all about making sweets.

Sugar cookies? Cakes? Pies? Brownies? Yeah I love to make them, I just don’t eat them lol.

I’d totally take part.

Also Via that sounds amazing.

I need to make some Rasberry Cheese Cake to go with it.

Hulu Plus has Wing, 08th, 00, and a Mobile Suit Gundam movie.
Thanks!! Gonna check these out on Hulu. It'll get me out of my Sabrina the Teenage Witch re-watch coma (I can't stop).

I burn water. Seriously.
Same. I am a shitty cook. I often times have to hang a sweatshirt over my smoke alarm when I cook certain things so as to not give my dog and I PTSD. I'm trying to get better now that I live alone and it's happening...but it's a slow process. I love to eat just my heart isn't super into the making it part.

So if any of you want a perfectly cooked steak but the inability to see your plate through the smoke when it's done, call me!

No shame in that. So we need a GAF Cooks group and give tutorials.

Burn water?, did you almost burn your house down trying to make pancakes? then step into GAF Cooks where your fellow members provide all the help you need.

With a small fee of 19.95 and includes a cookbook.
YES. Where is this pie?!
Haha I would gladly share but the miles between prevent that. If you can bake you should make it.

Oh boy... you'll need a lot of help. Let Gibbs guide you. Like the movie Ghost with Patrick Swayze. We'll turn that pottery... err water into something incredible.

I'm dying over here. Once I set noodles on fire in the microwave. Then the time ham caught fire on the stove. I've come a long way. You will too! I'll teach you my ways!

Yeah, I remember when I was at around 170 lbs, winter didn't feel that bad. I actually remember wearing a lot of tee shirts with a cotton hoodie on top, and shorts. One time winter was so bad here that it got to -40 degrees and I wasn't wearing much. 15-30 degree weather felt like nothing! Now a days (I'm at around 145 lbs ish) even 50 degree weather with wind chill feel freezing, lol.

Haha! I'm getting a little better since I'm on a diet and forced to cook low-carb. Scrambled eggs have become a specialty. But I would like to try out things that are more complicated...

I heard you can post selfies here.



Hello.
Yo!
