metal gear solid v ground zeroes is free on ps+ (obvs in build up to mgs v coming out in sept).

hoooly shit yeah this game is wicked. solid cutscenes + solid gameplay. the tweaks and improvements to the gameplay really go a long way and open the game up in a big way. the game being a self contained little demo isolated to 1 base actually makes it really fun figuring out how to play it and tackle the situation. plus there's not heaps of codec calls and cutscenes interrupting the fun gameplay. i'm assuming of course mgsv the full game will have a ton more cutscenes thrown in, but im hoping the game has the same focus on streamlining because holy shit it's gonna be a fun game when the gameplay has its time to shine

i was pretty blown away with it honestly. based on how everyone talked about how ps4 specs couldn't touch bleeding edge pc's i kinda expected it to not look that great or have a low frame rate. instead it looks gorgeous and at a steady 60 fps. oh, and yeah. the gamplay is really fucking good. i played it shortly after beating peacewalker and man... so good. worth the $40 or $50 bucks they sold it for at launch? nah. not even mad at the $10 i paid for it a few months ago

yeah, even tho i grabbed the free version i'd like to pick up a cheap physical copy somewhere .. just out of my distrust of having a ps+ account forever +PLUS really enjoying the game and wanting to keep it. maybe there'll be a bundle with MGS V or something?..

Been playing Splatoon for days now. Easily the most fun I've had this year with a game. Seriously this is like Nintendo's version of Counter-Strike yet is totally unique.

 

Also loving the whole timed release of maps, modes, and weapons. Seriously to have a new map every other week is insane. It all adds up to a game I'll be playing all summer.

Brutal Doom version 20 is off the damn chain, finally released today after 18 months in development (for this version alone). This mod basically takes a classic shooter and not only makes it even more violent, but gives it an overhaul to overall gameplay as well as new sprite animations, while retaining all of its core qualities at the same time. Only available for PC tho, obviously. If you try it and enjoy it, be sure to thank the guy who is its sole developer.

Gotta say this has been a good week for gaming news, along with the announcements of XCOM 2 and Fallout 4 as well.

No idea why I keep returning to Dark Souls. Finally figured out the combat (I think) and made it to a blacksmith. Also killed some tall guy in black armor and unlocked an elevator back to the starting area. Yasss.

I'm so surprised by how good Splatoon actually is. I don't care what people say Nintendo are still on top when it comes to making genuinely fun games.

 

I really hope it does well and they continue to make new IPs and concepts.

Are you gonna attempt to access the paywall DLC?
The amiibo stuff? I'm not bothered about that. They are adding new maps and multiplayer modes for free.

Look up some gameplay vids, great single player stuff, and fairly trippy. Really stupid they didn't do a bundle for the West.

They did do a bundle, the problem was that they were stolen. At least, if you were a Game customer.

Yeah I meant a US bundle.

 

Night Terrors looks really unique, your house is the playing field, turn out the lights and wander around using your phone camera as both the screen and controller. Good party game where your friends could hide and scare the shit out of you, after a few drinks or tokes.

Good lord they made Brutal Doom 10x more brutal.

 

:wub:

The thing I love about it too is the modernized game play. Monsters actually "lean" after being killed close to walls, you can do sideways barrel rolls (a la Star Fox 64), hot key frag grenades, and even dual-wield some weapons. I noticed the zombies actually fire their guns erratically for a brief second when they're killed too, much like the enemies in the first F.E.A.R. game. And there's so much more...

 

Some of you can knock PCs all you want, but one major advantage they have over console gaming - mods.

Black Knight? Alone at the top of a short, small tower? He's so great when you first encounter him. Just fucking destroyed me...kept coming back to him and finally felt like a king when I first took him down. Black Knight armor was my favorite in the game, most likely because of that.

No no not that guy. He kicked my ass once and I never returned. The one I'm talking about is inside an old church or something. Right before you reach the blacksmith. He wasn't hard to kill at all, just really intimidating to look at.

      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!
