Jealous of my homies at #PAXEast, the ASUS booth looks dope as hell! twitter.com/IntelGaming/st…
When Elden Ring came out, I thought "lol no way I'm playing this." Now I'm almost 40 hours in and HOOKED. Lotta Elden Ring takes on the internet right now, but mine is simple: this game is gud rog.asus.com/articles/gamin…
So Happy Easter. I hope today your basket of eggs is full and your burdens are light. But if they aren't, give yourself permission to hand them off. Then stop doomscrolling, just for a bit. Then go tell someone you love them just as they are. They probably need to hear it.
No matter how we feel or what hot water we're in right now, God says "I love you. You're enough. You're worth more than you or anyone else will give you credit for. I'll carry this burden for you, so you can get up and try again." And I swear, I'm really trying to do better.
God's love is the only thing that has reliably and repeatedly pulled me out of that mess over the past few years. This day isn't just about what Jesus did. It's about why he did it and what we're called to do with that gift.
Am I really becoming the type of father I want to be, or am I letting stress and anxiety and anger get in the way of showing my kids real, kind, compassionate love? (I spent some time in therapy this year for that last one especially.)
It's a lot harder to look at myself and say: Have I really stood for justice, or do I hold my beliefs silently out of laziness and fear and ambivalence? How many people have I hurt in my life because of my own selfishness?
And honestly, that's easier said than done. God promised us that we'd need to turn that judgmental gaze inward, too. It isn't hard to point out how other people have failed to make the world better, or how they've harmed their friends and family.
It's a weird thing to find comfort in, but I have repeated this to myself many, many times over the past few years. Every time I see this stuff happening, I can choose to feel hopeless, or I can choose to get motivated to be better.
"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them."
God promised, long ago, that this would be the world we lived in. He promised us we'd be surrounded by evil, and that in fact many evil things would be falsely done IN HIS NAME.
How am I supposed to trust in God when this is what his people regularly do to each other? Many of whom purport to be followers of his word? It's taken me a while to realize that trusting in God means KNOWING this will happen.
From news headlines to people in my community to every third tweet on this site, I'm surrounded by things that test my faith in humanity. Not to mention the countless atrocities we all know are happening, but aren't currently being shoved in our face by a fearmongering algorithm.
I have watched people purporting to be Christians show the opposite with their actions. I have seen and heard of people showing untold levels of selfishness, often emotionally damaging their spouses, kids, and friends. And it's exhausting.
It's been a tough couple of years. I probably don't need to tell you that. In many ways, my family and I are so fortunate and blessed that it feels trivial to say that. But it's hard not to be generally discouraged by everything this…uh, decade.
I wanted to throw out a Happy Easter tweet, but 280 characters was not enough. So instead, here are many more characters than you asked for with too many personal details, plus some politics and religion. I don't usually do this, but that's how Twitter works, right? 🧵
i *am* gud. gud at summoning three wolves and spamming sorceries from a safe distance

Okay I beat the boss I feel better ...for now
Yesterday I was all talk like "Man Elden Ring is so good I'm gonna play this for months!" and tonight I'm like "lol fuck this game it'll break me in a week"
Everyone at Reviewed is great! Especially Joanna! If you like writing about TVs and audio and other related things, jump on this! twitter.com/JLNwrites/stat…
3 weeks ago I wasn't even considering buying this game lol
Maybe that'll change after another 10 or 20 hours but I feel like I could play this game for the rest of 2022 and still not actually beat it
Elden Ring has me hooked, but not in the usual way most games do in which I truck forward to see what happens next. I want to explore everything. 10 hours, 25 levels in and I feel feel like I've barely scratched the surface of the south half of the opening area.
This old article of mine has become more relevant than ever with Elden Ring out...my list of things to check out in Limgrave is already quite long lifehacker.com/i-have-a-to-do…
I think some developers might take the wrong lessons from Elden Ring. They’ll think, “We have to make our games hard too,” but what they really ought to do is give a double jump to their horses.

I honestly think I would prefer permanent standard time to permanent daylight time, for a number of reasons, but permanent anything is probably better than switching clocks
Don't go crazy stocking up on games every time you see a big sale come around. Here's how to really save money on PC games: rog.asus.com/articles/guide…
Okay fine I'm downloading Elven Rings, where do I find Margaret
Got my first clear in Hades. This game is an absolute friggin masterpiece. 10/10 straight up. If you haven't played it yet, put it at the top of your list, seriously.
Was trying to work out what HDMI stands for so I could tell the kids but all I could come up with was "High definition am I" in a Yoda voice

As a filthy casual, I had very little interest in Elden Ring until @clawforce described it to me as a modern Morrowind...now I'm questioning everything
Konami is killing it with their classic game collections. I already own both Castlevania collections and the Contra collection, and I've been hoping for a Turtles release. Here's hoping we'll see it on PC! twitter.com/verge/status/1…
One of tech’s greatest tragedies is when you accidentally sneeze on your monitor

What I'm saying is hey @lyonsinbeta I'm not stalking you today, but congrats on having a good string of tweets the algorithm decided to show to me at once
Some days I like a tweet, then Twitter decides to show me another tweet from that person, which I like, then they just start showing me replies from that person which are good so I like two more, and now it looks like I'm stalking this person now but it's the algorithm I swear
Holy mother of crap, Hades is so good. One hour in and I'm HOOKED.
The Forgotten City is a very cool game with intriguing characters and a story that hooks you quick. Mainlined the whole thing yesterday, highly recommended: gog.com/game/the_forgo… And it's on Game Pass!
