Have you ever heard of Final Fantasy XV? If so have you played it before? I'm just curious haha

Yes! ♥ My brother has been playing it recently and I’ve been watching as well ((i’m more of a backseat gamer)) and I think it’s really awesome – but the feELS!!!

I told him to hold off the final battle for a while because I need to recover all my emotions LOL ((we’ve been finishing sidequests and doing the level grinds but we didn’t know that Chapter 9 and beyond was like a one-way trip to pain wtf))

I’ve been doodling the squad sometimes too ((first time sketching them hhh pls forgive the mistakes–gotta practice moreee)) *__* I also have some comic ideas for them ((the game haS SO MUCH CRACK MATERIAL if u look closer))

+++ Ignis is best ♥♥♥

That Squip virtual big brother au is what I need in life

Imagine if Jeremy got the SQUIP into video games.

He refuses to admit that he enjoys it, but then whenever Jeremy and Michael are playing one, he gets so into it and he’s such a backseat-gamer. 
Like, all Jeremy can hear the entire time is: “what are doing?! Obviously, a combo attack would defeat that enemy more efficiently, Jeremy! And you just lost ANOTHER life! This is pitiful, where’s your head at?!!”

I'm getting this really concerning urge to put myself in harm's way, and I'm not upset, I just feel compelled to put myself in danger so I'll get hurt. Do you have any help or advice? I'm really concerned because I have to walk a long way today, next to the street.

Intrusive thoughts. Try and imagine those compulsions as a separate entity to yourself. Like an annoying backseat gamer who won’t stop telling you to do dumb things when you have the controller. And then, just like you would do with said gamer, flip them off and continue doing what you should be doing.

Ok,,I'm not a big Pidge x Lance shipper But,,,,here are some headcanons -Pidge finding a way to plug in her game and she plays it all night and won't let Lance have a turn until SHE BEATS THE GODAMN LEVEL-Random hugs from Lance every so often-this also led to Lance having to announce his presence shortly before hand as he almost lost his head after scaring her-Pidge falling asleep on her laptop so Lance moves it and puts a pillow under her head and gently puts her head on it &a a blanket on her

I mcfreaking got up and went on my laptop because I AM HERE FOR THIS. Also I appreciate this ask especially considering you’re not as into it ty for humoring me babbu <3

But consider…Pidge is a backseat gamer. Meaning once she let’s Lance play she’s CONSTANTLY HOVERING OVER HIM like. Telling him what to do and how to play. ‘No! You missed a chance for a weapon upgrade! Okay, Okay make sure you hit him while he’s mid jump! What’re you doing ???!!! YOU’RE MISSING ALL THE COLLECTABLES.’ 

Lance hates it. They have bickered several times because of Pidge’s hovering. Especially because when it’s her playing she’ll get irritated so fast if he so much sits behind her shoulder. 

I headcanon that Pidge gets startled super easily ( take note of her freaking out about Lance in ep 1 ). So Lance accidentally sneaking up on her is my favorite.

 One time he makes the mistake of intentionally trying to scare her and sneaks up with a tackle hug. She had her bayard on hand and tased him. She was only like 30% sorry about it. 

Also I see your Lance putting a blanket over sleeping Pidge and I raise you Lance clumsily trying to pick her up and take her back to her room to sleep. Some times he manages to get her back without any mishaps but most of the time either he ends up waking her up. Or she kicks around in her sleep while being carried and kicks/punches him. Pidge is most definitely a restless sleeper and kicks A LOT. 

Ty for this my dude semi platonic plance fluff is my favorite I die

anonymous asked:

Do you watch anime? I'm just asking because you've been reblogging stuff that has anime in it. I'm not shaming it or anything, I'm just curious. Sorry, if this sounds rude...

Not a prob! I don’t really watch anime, but my husband does occasionally and I like to be the backseat gamer to all his video games (some of which are Japanese). So, usually I reblog stuff that I recognize and appreciate. I also reblog things I don’t even know about but I think its cute or nice, lol.

I do like ONE anime though: Samurai Champloo. There are a couple others I started but never finished because my distracted ass can’t ever finish any series outside of Futurama.

I feel like dva would often invite her friends to co-host with her on streams. even if they’re not good at video games she’s really supportive of them and will be a huge “backseat gamer” like “PRESS A, PRESS A!!!” and her friends like IM TRYING IM TRYING and they end up just laughing together.

Eventually her friend will get over the hard part, only with dva cheering them on. Even if it takes her friend 30 minutes where dva could beat it in 5, she’s proud of her friend and they’re all happy

🍦 what is one treasured childhood memory?🐼 if you could meet anyone, who would it be and why?

🍦 Hmm. I think any treasured memory of mine from my childhood is watching my mom play one of the early FF games or maybe it was Wild Arms or something on the PSOne. It sparked my love for playing RPG games and it’s still my favorite genre. My mom would play but I’d keep track of chests, quests and villagers when she played or point out things she missed. I’ve always been a backseat gamer. XD

🐼 If I could meet anyone it would probably be Justin Furstenfeld. I was originally going to say Johnny Depp but I thought about it some more and came to Justin. If you don’t know who he is, he’s the lead singer of Blue October, and he happens to be from Houston like me. I remember seeing them perform after “Sway” came out and I heard them play “Fear” and I literally cried. I related to the song and his music so much. I had always been a fan kinda but after that I became hooked and now I see them every time they come back home to Houston. A lot of his music is about fear, depression, anxiety, hatred for oneself and others and the path in overcoming those things and I hope to do that myself one day. If you have anxiety, depression and things like that, I implore you. listen to “Fear.”

BASICALLY LIKE… give me ps4 game recs. i gotta decide what games i wanna start out with. if i get stuff like fallout and skyrim i want that to be for pc so i can get mods… im curious about stuff like, do you think until dawn is a game that needs to be played firsthand or is it fine to just watch a few lps. are uncharted games just like long indiana jones movies or is there something added by playing it yourself. theres plenty of games im curious about but im mainly gay for Story so im not gonna buy something i could easily just enjoy as an lp unless, like fc3, i end up kin of it or something… whereas i Need to get prey because the gameplay style is so fun and open that i feel antsy and like a backseat gamer trying to just watch it online. does this make sense. what games are really fun to Play or, ideally, the story works better when you play firsthand. i dont care about sports games, cod-style shooters, or jrpgs, but im open to anything else (and with jrpgs you may be able to convince me). you hear about video games

When playing video games as a group only Tsubaki can be trusted to hold the controller. Because they know she wont break the controller, the TV or someone’s face when she jumps. 

Everyone else is the worst backseat gamer ever. 

“Go left!”

“NO! Go right, what are you stupid?”  

“Hey listen!”

Tsubaki: *Muttering* “I wanted to play Ocarina, but nooo, we gotta play the spooky one.”

Meanwhile Liz and Crona have created a fort behind the couch and are eating chocolate.     

Boffinshield vs Mariocart
  • Lindz: MARIOCART WOULD RUIN THORIN AND BILBO
  • Alys: IT TOTALLY WOULD!
  • Alys: And of course cause everything is Boffinshield lately! BOFUR JUST CACKLING IN THE BACKGROUND REFUSING TO PICK UP A CONTROLLER
  • Lindz: Bofur is a backseat gamer
  • Lindz: TURN LEFT TURN LEFT AAHHH YEH MISSED IT HOW COULD YEH MISS IT
  • Alys: There's a shortcut jest there yeh know. OH THORIN HERE IT COMES THE BLUE SHELL O' DEATH
  • Lindz: "WhAT WHERE WHE-FUCKING DAMNIT BILBO"
  • "ehehehehehehehe"
  • Alys: Then Bofur gets tired of them gaming, so starts attacking who ever's winning the most just like "C'mere love" -kissing along necks or pulling into his lap-
  • Lindz: It's probably bilbo
  • Lindz: "Bofur no no get off don't you-nooo nono hang on you bloody-"
  • Alys: "Yes yes love." He would probably just pick Bilbo up and carry him to the couch farthest from the television and just flop with him.
  • Alys: "This is much more entertainin than starin at cartoon characters."
  • Lindz: "BoFUR NO IM WINNING BOFUR THE CONTROLLER DOESNT EXTEND THIS FAR BO F UR THORINS CATCHING UP!!"
  • Lindz: Thorin's cackling quietly to himself
  • Alys: "Well if yeh think of it another way, Thorin is definitely fallin' behind." -more nuzzles and kisses-
  • Alys: Pfft what if they have the wii equivalent version, Bilbor still trying to steer and nearly elbowing Bofur in the face as he's carried off
  • Lindz: Omg yes
  • Lindz: Angrily screeching
  • Lindz: Arms outstretched to try to keep the connection
  • Alys: Peering around Bofur and his stupid hat which is blocking him from seeing the screen
  • Lindz: /"DWARVES TOGETHER"/
  • "SHUT UP SHUT UP WITH YOUR STUPID DWARVISH I CAN BEAT YOU FROM HERE THORIN OAKENSHIELD"
  • Alys: Bilbo is scary when he's competitive! XD
  • Lindz: He pretends hes above it all but thorins competitive attitude rubbed off
  • Lindz: When bilbo and bofur play against each other its way more chill
  • Lindz: If Thorin's involved shit gets intense
  • Alys: Oh definitely! Bofur just like making snarky commentary the entire time. "Oh look at that spin out! Peach never stood a chance!"
  • Alys: Bofur refuses to play with Thorin
  • Alys: He's of the opinion that if Thorin wants to get that riled up and competitive, he would far rather it be in bed
  • Lindz: Bilbo always plays thorin and says itll be chill but he gets caught up every damn time
  • Lindz: Until hours later bofur comes home to them yelling on the couch viciously playing
  • Lindz: Cushions everywhere
  • Alys: And he just sighs, and is constantly coming up with new ways to distract them
  • Lindz: Its way harder to distract thorin who is capable of just shoving Bofur to the floor
  • Lindz: And usually gets more legit angry while bilbo just gets louder
  • Alys: One time Bofur just comes in the door, sees that things have gotten out of hand again, and just full on tackles Thorin to the floor
  • Alys: Not taking any chances this time
  • Lindz: DkdkdkKDDJLS
  • Lindz: first time he was really able to take thorin by surprise
  • Lindz: There is such a commotion
  • Alys: Dwarf wrestling. "GIVE ME THAT BLEEDIN' CONTROLLER!"
  • Lindz: /"ENRAGED KHUZDUL"/
  • Lindz: "BOFUR WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!"
  • Alys: "WINNING!"
  • Lindz: "I WAS ABOUT TO OVERTAKE HIM YOU -RUDE KHUZDUL-"
  • Alys: -overdramatic offended shock- "WELL SEE IF I EVER KISS THAT MOUTH OF YEHRS AGAIN!"
  • Alys: Bofur is secretly the best at MarioKart but he never lets on, far preferring to have fun. Until one day he's like 'THIS FUCKING GAME! MAHAL HAVE MERCY! OKAY I CHALLENGE BOTH OF YEH TO A TOURNAMENT IF I WIN WE GET RID OF THE GAME!"
  • Lindz: GASP
  • Lindz: its a near thing, thorins out pretty quick but it gets intense between bofur and Bilbo
  • Alys: XD Thorin starts trying to distract Bofur because he doesn't want to lose the game
  • Alys: Bofur doesn't even blink
  • Lindz: SkfjdkLDJDOSP
  • Lindz: it becomes a little terrifying
  • Lindz: Thorin sitting in a kinda horrified awe as he watches the two of them
  • Lindz: He is so freaked out because they're BOTH SILENT
  • Alys: THIS IS NOT THE HOBBIT AND DWARF I FELL IN LOVE WITH
  • Alys: THIS IS AN EVIL GAME
  • Lindz: THIS GAME IS TEARING US APART
  • Lindz: thorin ends up turning it off
  • Lindz: NoPPE
  • Lindz: STOP EVERYTHING
  • Lindz: HE WANTS HIS CHATTERBOXES BACK
  • Alys: MARIOKART IS ENTOMBED WITH THE ARKENSTONE

Toriel, with the help of backseat gamer Frisk keeping an eye on her gamepad, takes on sans in a Splatoon match while they Skype with one another.

sans has a bad time. ]: )

(Played, scripted, and voice acted by me! This all coincidentally happened when I was streaming Splatoon and just happened to find a sans on random battle matching. And considering that I was playing as Toriel on my own account, I found the outcome really hilarious. And I thought it might be fun to throw in a little voice acting as though Toriel and sans were actually playing Splatoon online with one another instead of the original stream audio.

Toriel always struck me as the sort of person who would keep talking while playing games and explain every little thing she was doing and going to do. I hope you guys find it in-character! This was really fun to do. I hope you enjoy it!)

Original stream audio version here.
