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

I'll be playing Dead Cells once it's finished. not touching any early-access stuff.

 

Actually it went 1.0 roughly a week ago. It's been on my wishlist for quite a while now... but i've got too much unfinished business *cough*

Been playing more adventure games and just finished off Wadjeteye's series. I highly recommend The Blackwell Legacy series to anyone who likes point and clicks. They're the equivalent of those non-fiction books that you see at the grocery store in length and tone, but the guy who writes them is *very* good, if not one of the best adventure game writers currently developing. It involves a woman named Rosa who comes from a family lineage that can talk to the dead and send lost ghosts to the next world, and spans across roughly 40 years with the in-game mechanics and character development reflecting it. The characters, settings and plots are all strong (the second episode was probably the weakest but was still good), voice acting is on par and the puzzles are just the right amount of difficulty: not easy but they make sense in the game world. The last game in the series was full length, high budget and had the perfect ending that took me completely off guard.

 

There are references in the game to Wadgeteye's first game, The Shivah (game was so-so), but they are mostly constrained to easter eggs than anything related to the story. It is worth playing through the first four to play the 5th because of the past references, questions and stories all being neatly answered and tied up. Their other adventure games are good B to A- grade products with the weakest of the adventures series on there probably a toss between A Golden Wake and Gemini Rue. The former has very interesting settings and detail, but the character writing, poorly-responsive action sequences, puzzles are bad and non-nonsensical plot twists. Aside from that, the Blackwell series is probably the most successful and has the most effort put into it. It shows!

 

 

 

They just released a new Shadowrun-esque adventure game, Unavowed, that I'm going through now.

I’ll be headed to Gamescom in a week to show off the game I’ve been working on for about a year. Pretty excited about this.

 

Good luck! By all accounts Gamescom is a bloodbath on the public-attending side of things, hope that doesn't spill over for yourself.

lol what do you mean by this? I've never been, but I'm imagining hordes of neckbeards and scrawny nerds clamouring over each other to play the Next Big Thing.

 

Anyhow sounds super cool Squee, good luck!

I have 40 achievements (10%) left to 100% Isaac. they're mostly going to be real pain in the ass type achievements like getting a 5-win streak with all different characters etc.

i have only 1 left, finish the entire game in 20 minutes picking up no bombs or hearts. its the most annoying challange ever, because when you get a room that it is just a bridge through the middle, and then a heart drops on it, your run is over. 

 

 

got this one the other day. I used Azazel for it, since he can fly over most of the shit you don't want to pick up. having an activated item that can give you soul hearts or black hearts is a must, unless you're an untouchable player which I most definitely am not.

 

also, I just beat Delirium as the Lost! so fucking tense. only just reached him with Mom's Knife to finish him off before he nearly got me (already spent my Holy Mantle one-time protection for that room). if I hadn't had like an obscene 40+ damage stat combined with the huge multiplier provided by the knife at the end of its arc, I'd've been done for. edit: and if I hadn't had like a thousand bone orbitals shielding me using Book of the Dead in countless rooms beforehand, I'd've been wiped out much quicker anyway.

 

orgasmic moment as 3 achievements unlocked: Holy Card, Godhead, and Real Platinum God. I'm down to my last 11 achievements now. they're all Keeper shit though, who is even worse to play than the Lost, and possibly the worst character in the whole game. edit: plus my last challenge run, Ultra Hard.

replaying circle of the moon on retroarch. did u know there's crowdsourced achievements for emulators now? dank: https://retroachievements.org/user/juiceciuj


picked up dead cells after i started replaying cotm as i didn't know it had gone gold yet. might return it and buy it again later when it's cheaper as it wasn't nearly as fun as blasting through rooms in cotm

Started up Mafia III since it's free with PS+ this month, I'd been meaning to play it for a while. Not too far but pretty damn good so far, good gameplay and the story seems well told.

That's good to hear because the first one is already in my Steam library :)

Dishonored 2 is a big improvement over 1. Both are good, but some of the levels in 2 are insanely innovative.

 

 

the recommendations for Dishonored were great.  finished 1 and the expansions, now onto 2.  is quite an excellent series.

Darkest Dungeon, really great. Despite its 'turn-based combat + random encounters' definitely not like any other game I've played. Makes you rely more on natural instinct than on gamer experience.

      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!
