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

I like this new Fallout 3 DLC

How's Watmm enjoying the new God Of War? 

 

dbc7p7gu8aajzno3iu5q.jpg

 

Only a few hours in so far, but it already looks and feels a bit special. I haven't played anything God of War since II on PS2, and even then I had no particular affection towards the series, yet I'm enjoying it a lot. There is more drama and intensity in the first 15 minutes than I was anticipating (the benefits of adopting a complete media blackout for the game prior to release). Will get some more played soon.

I may or may not have have reserved a PS4 Pro including God of War

Good for you - hope you have a HDR 4K TV to leverage it - supposedly the best way to play Dad of War on PS4 Pro is to play it at 1080 with higher frame rate and better antialiasing.

I do. I saw some 1080p vs 4k framerate comparisons and I'm definitely gonna go for 1080p

=D

Imbroglio just got a new expansion... so I've been obsessing over that for the last week or so... 

=P

Templar Battleforce, Heroes of Steel and Death Road to Canada also all got some great updates over this last week... I've only briefly checked out DRtC though... 

Too many games... not enough free time...

https://www.pcgamer.com/dark-souls-remastered-is-half-price-for-owners-of-the-original-pc-game-after-all/

 

 

In January, despite some confusion, Bandai Namco assured us existing owners of the original Dark Souls would not receive money off its incoming Remastered edition. Now, the publisher has confirmed that they will. 

 

Billed as a "loyalty discount", owners of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition can pick up Dark Souls: Remastered at half-price when it hits Steam on May 25, 2018. 

 

Moreover, the Prepare to Die Edition—which costs £20/$20 at present and comes with the base game's DLC—will be removed from Valve's digital storefront entirely as of May 9. It will however remain playable for existing owners.

hi Joyrex, do you have a link for that, I'm currently using a free month trial of Prime, but can't find the deal.

After a month and about 50 hours, I finally beat Far Cry 5. The ending was


Anticlimactic as fuck. If you go with the Resist option in dealing with Joseph Seed, he still wins in the end. And all your friends die in nuclear fire, yet you somehow survive. I thought it was bullshit overall TBH. Haven't gone with the Walk Away option yet though. Think I'll do a second playthrough and do it then at the end.

But as the saying goes, the journey beats the destination.


Regardless, it's still a genuinely fun game. Also looking forward to the DLCs and more Far Cry Arcade maps. Might even consider building my own.

Not checking that spoiler but I am very much enjoying Far Cry 5.  I've been consistently impressed with the series since Ubi took it over, especially the balls to go as heady & provocative as they do with their plotlines.

 

Counting down the days to Dark Souls Remastered.  Still haven't beaten 3... getting my ass handed to me in Irithyll.

Looking forward to playing the remaster at some point too...just may wait til it's on sale in a few months though. Everyone's saying good things about the remaster's quality so that's great.

 

Irithyll wasn't too bad, but definitely has a few stretches that are treacherous. What kind of build are you playing?

So I've received my PS4... I've hooked it up... I've bought Shadows of the Colossus... and I have no fucking desire to play anything.

an actual cool forum feature would be to give you a warning when you're responding to the last post on a page

I have a few builds but the one I got the furthest in (to Irithyll) is a dex sword & shield build.  I have an "easy mode" pyromancer build that I play on when I just want to have fun and not cry, but only made it to the Cathedral of the Deep with that one.

Yup. Every time.

Ah, damn, dex should do you well enough there. Not sure what's tripping you up but of course the old method of run past everything until you make it to the next bonfire then backtrack is an option :) Ranged weapons helped me there, just a decent bow to trigger individuals or wear them down from far away at some of the mob areas. A fun area all around though imo. PVP was pretty hype there, could always get a friendly to help you through if you're just sick of it :P

played some frostpunk. very moody and atmospheric, nice artwork, writing and design. but gameplay wise, in the shadow of rimworld it seems very shallow and lacking replayability, it's all very linear and doesn't allow the player to entertain different play styles. the interface is also pretty bad and was probably the main reason i ditched it, you simply have a hard time getting the information you need to manage shit efficiently.

I’d say ….. it depends! I can definitely see people finding the whole thing a soulless slog, but for me the atmosphere of it that has kept me going for the 8+ hours (still have a chapter or two to go).

 

It’s *very* English, tonally it feels like if Threads crossed over with The Archers, but as a child of the 80s growing up and wandering around the same quaint village/towns for much of my life it had an instant emotional connection. It’s a huge step up from The Chinese Room’s previous Dear Ester, but definitely similar in tone – So if you played that and it did little for you then you may find this title lacking as well.

 

Just chiming in to say I finally got around to finishing this (Everybody's Gone to the Rapture) last night and absolutely loved it. Beautiful game too, I could explore those environments forever.

 

Was initially a bit fucked off to discover the lack of manual save (I lost 2hrs of gameplay early on) but then worked out significant events triggered the autosave, so I accommodated my sessions around that.

Didn't want to open another thread for that but anybody here grabbed Korg Gadget on Switch? I'd love to collaborate with some WATMMers on tracks over the web!

      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!
