Nintendo should stop trying to innovate hardware and go back to making playing cards for the yakuza.

It's sad watching them after loving so much of their stuff from the last 30 years. Starting to look like they're going to go down in flames.

 

Yeah seems like Nintendo's glory days are a thing of the past now. Nothing lasts forever I guess.

I feel like such a douche for promoting this... but... hi... hello... a game I'm doing the music and sound design for is on Kickstarter and things are going pretty well. Elijah Wood and Patton Oswalt

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

of these , BG+E is the best.

its been a long time since i played that game but last i remember that game was really amazing. i might have to back to that one.

 

 

It's dated. Lot's of load screens, some stupid mechanics in terms of having to run back pointlessly... now and then.

 

 

Other than that it's more fun and has more personality than the others I listed. It's just a good game. Better than Psychonauts, for comparison.

 

I wish there were more great games. They just don't make them like they used to.

 

 

 

 

 

OH! Deus Ex: Human Revolution was pretty dang good. It's not soulful but it's a very, very well made game. Better than F3, gameplay wise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I just wanted to say this now: Splosion Man is the most underrated series of the past 5 years. Personality, wit, soul, joy, SOLID gameplay. It's nearly a PS1 title!

I have a stack of Wii games waiting to be played, I've just neglected them as I hate the rubbish low res of the Wii. Being able to play them all in a nicer crispy resolution essentially gives me a bunch of games to enjoy all over again on the Wii U.

 

Also, if Nintendo pulls their finger out and gets the right Gamecube games available digitally (F Zero, Wind Waker, Killer 7), I will be very happy indeed.

You realize (as far as I know and have read) that Wii games won't upscale, but instead display at native resolution (which if you ever watch SD on an HDTV you'll know what I mean), so if anything, you're going to see it look WORSE I would imagine. I hope not.

 

Having digital GameCube games would be nice... Nintendo needs to get into the HD remake game and redo Wind Waker, Mario Sunshine, Galaxy, etc.

3 minutes to go .... It's finally here ! http://blackmesasource.com/

 

EDIT: Bugger - have they just pushed back release for another two weeks ?! ( http://www.blackmesa...ment-letter.pdf )

 

No their distribution sucks. Site is down, mirrors are down, only "official" tracker is down... They should have just put it on PirateBay or something.

 

I'm downloading now (at 130KB/s :() using this torrent file:

http://www.mediafire...ba8kfb4xu4jjvna

 

But the tracker in that file is down so add these trackers:

udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80

udp://tracker.ccc.de:80

udp://tracker.istole.it:80

 

Edit: HTTP mirror that is up for now: http://www.shacknews.com/file/32999/black-mesa-source-10-windows-free-game

I'm going to try to get the platinum for Dragon Age 2. I played and beat it when it first came out, which was a while back now. It was a pretty cool game.

I had some rare free time last night and was supa-excite to start playing Mass Effect 2 (or at least to play through the interactive backstory comic since I have a PS3 and ME1 is unavailable to me), but the fucker took about an hour to install with all the DLC downloads and Cerberus Network activation, &c.

 

I will meet you this weekend, heroic lesbian ginger Shepard, and our journey together will begin.

Do you have a source on that? It would be disappointing if that is indeed the case...

I think I'm going backwards. When I was a teen I would play nothing but PC games. Quake (Quake online happy to see TF use 2fort5 map), Quake 3, Unreal, Hexen 2, The Daedalus Encounter, RollerCoaster Tycoon, etc. Not a lot of people I knew would play PC games, it was sorta frowned upon. Now, I have and play console games and not so much PC...however, most people I know are getting into PC games. :)

I've beaten everything from HL2 and up but when I tried to play H1 in 2000 I was little and scared and then when i got older the graphics just sucked. But now finally!

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
