Decided to try Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath on Android. The original game came out in early 2005 apparently. But it's nice to be able to play it anywhere on my phone.

Pretty fun, and solid voice acting. Though I'm not sure if any of the characters from the older Oddworld games with Abe will show up or not. I guess the only thing they have in common really is taking place in the same game universe.

Just a PSA for anyone that may be interested in xbox 360 games.. I've been browsing amazon warehouse deals and bought Bayonetta, Metal Gear  HD Collection, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, and Vanquish for a grand total of 35 dollars. 360 games are crazy cheap right now if you feel like stocking up before the prices start climbing 5 years from now.

My brother just got me a Retropie. Any recommendations for wireless controllers?

if you have a ds3 or ds4 lying around i'd try one of those. i think if it's a pi3 w/built in bt those are supposed to work pretty well with the newest versions of retropie on pi3

It's all over the place, some j-pop, some j-rock, some weird squid language singing, but damn it's so fully realized as a world, Nintendo has established what I'm sure is their next long running franchise (and the Youtube Splatoon anime series starts August 12, kinda like Pokemon Origins I believe).  

 

BTW, what happened to Bitroast?  He deleted his watmm account, and disappeared from Switch.   Am I the only Switch owner left here, and by default once again the Nintendo evangelist?  Also trying to secure an SNES Classic pre-order today, so I guess the answer is yes, lol.

I have a switch but don't have Splatoon. Next purchase is Zelda DLC and Overcooked

Started playing What Remains of Edith Finch and I REALLY like it so far!

 

That game is a real trip! Very well designed and voice acted. So so morbid though.

Cool, gonna pick up Namco Museum (again) on Switch eShop this Friday.

Thought Overcooked was out when I went to buy it last night (it wasn't). Bought Gonner instead.

It's pretty intense! Not usually a fan of roguelikes but this one has me coming back

 

 

I'm curious to see how Pac-Man Vs. will work on Switch, in handheld mode each person could use their own Switch, but how it works in TV mode is anyone's guess.

 

Infinite Mini Golf is also supposed to get released soon, that one looks cool, and I love me some golf games.

tried the destiny 2 beta (ps4)

 

meh

frame rate in multiplayer is still a poxy ~30fps which just feels shite compared to overwatch/titanfall

the single player seems like it'll be more of the same

Picked up Gravity Rush 2 and The Surge on sale, probably won't play them for a year, but hey, cheap games.

that's the spirit, got a bunch of shit from Humble Monthly Bundles I know I'm not going to touch in forever

      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!
