What Video Games Are You Currently Playing

better save my pennies for the nx..

I think they're trying to sit on that info at least til E3, if everyone knows Zelda will be on NX, I can see a lot of people canceling their Wii U preorders, and possibly selling their consoles to get trade in for the NX stuff. Either way they make money, but damn that system is in a tail spin.

Paid tribute to some of the featured artists in my Animal Crossing home

The creator of the "Konami code" has passed away ?  

Obsessed with Wipeout, not played it for almost 20 years.

how is The Division? looks interesting.

 

so far I'm not too impressed, just seems like another generic 3rd person shooter, where Ubisoft promises more than they can deliver. The menus are a little confusing, the UI is cluttered and the text is too small, you can hardly see what you're shooting at, and the cross hairs are badly designed. I still can't tell if Square button is reloading my weapons manually, or if it only reloads when it's empty.

Is Final Fantasy X:2 the most camp game ever? Playing the HD remaster right now. Combat and character development are both p lush at least.

Hopefully it won't cost more than a mid range graphics card so everybody wins.

 

Except those that just bought a WiiU.

I just did and I have to say I'm kind of disappointed by Nintendo's strategy although it was highly previsible.

 

I knew the NX would come out pretty quickly but I thought Nintendo would try to support the Wii U a bit longer, especially with the load of stuff they did to keep it alive recently.

That sums it up pretty well. After being spoiled by Destiny's combat, Division feels a lot less smooth. It also can't seem to decide if it wants to be gritty and realistic, with its destructible environments and pretty weather effects, or cartoonish RPG with enemies having bulletproof hoodies and gangs of people with flamethrowers.

 

I can dig it, though. The Dark Zone is really, really fun. My main concern is how much of the non-dark zone content will be as fun or interesting, and important to the end-game.

 

Still stuck on the Witness challenge. Figured out one of the "meta" puzzles related to it but I just can't solve the tiles quick enough.

Added my PSN handle, I'll be playing co-op stuff like Borderlands, Battlefield, COD, maybe The Division. and a lot of Japanese stuff and RPGs. The Witness is as good as you guys were claiming.

 

Any other co-op recommendations watmm is currently playing?

Street Fighter V - VERY barebones (March would be a good time to pick it up since that's when all the stuff that should have been in it at launch will be there), but if you have a friend to play against, incredibly fun.

oh did you pick it up jr? i played a ton of ranked over the weekend. barely cracking ~1000lp. kept going back and forth on long winning/losing streaks. need to brush up on my mika corner shenanigans because that's where the magic happens. i've definitely started to notice dropped inputs using a legacy stick and the first big tournament in atlanta next month has banned legacy support so looks like i'll be upgrading...

 

still taking way too long between ranked matches (i'd say anywhere from 1-3 mins on average) but maybe some of that will get resolved with the server maintenance later today. been using the extra time to my advantage. lifting weights, pushups, squats, etc. if i play this game enough i'm gonna get totally ripped

TRON run/r is enjoyable, but they dropped the ball by not including online Light Cycle races.

Borderlands Handsome Collection

Dying Light

Journey

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

Black Ops 3

Will add you both. Rubin, what modes do you play in Blops? I usually hang around Hardcore SnD/KC. I also own Borderlands and Journey but haven't made a dent in either.

Is this the game with the Ae track in the soundtrack? If yes, how is it?

on this list only occasionally play blops3. if alone i'd usually just jump into ffa but recently found out that ctf is basically the most fun mode on there. now that sf is out i'll probably very rarely be playing blops

 

btw you can't really choose your partner in journey. it's always random. it's part of the magic!

I noticed last night for the first time a few dropped inputs with my legacy stick too...

 

Has anyone played Firewatch? Curious if it is as good as they say and is worth 20USD.

It's a pretty great little game, but there's like 4h of gameplay

So more like a movie experience - once the story's done, that's it - no real replayability (other than say completing challenges for trophies)?

Yeah, cinematographic would be a good description. No replayability. There are some minor changes depending of your choices in some dialogues but nothing extraordinary. Still I really liked it, there's quite a unique ambiance that's grown on me ever since I finished it.

 

I would say it's worth paying 20$ as a support for this kind of game-making, but next time they'd better put deliver more content!

      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!
