Bought Dreams on PS4 yesterday, we should do a WATMM thing there!

You mean you bought the paid early access? It's not out yet, is it?

Yeah pretty much. You get the full version when it releases, at half the price, while figuring out things will take time anyways. Seems fun so far, time consuming though. Love the way it renders things, has this kinda washed out look, hope I can make a few things for a short film idea with it, not sure how far you can go with importing your own music, and exporting it for further copyright use and all!

Umihara Kawase Fresh! demo off the JP eshop.. love this series of games. bouncy fishing line grapple madness. this one has a bunch of basic story/quest type stuff i could do without but apart from that, it's rad! as maddeningly difficult and satisfying as ever.

also Dragon's Dogma again... why is it so good...

I'm a bit torn on dragon's dogma, am I supposed to accept all quests on a board and run around the map? And there's no fast travel, just stones you can travel with once?

oh i thought you could just keep using those travel stones? dunno, i like walking everywhere 🙂

quests... i just accept them all and then ignore them until i'm at a loose end some time and feel like it.. not a fan of list-of-tasks-to-check-off style games really.. i mostly just wander around.. 

it's so generic and sort of drab, but d-dogma really shines in DUNGEONS.. going down that well in the starting town was when i first fell in love with it....it's really good at darkness and night, and a sense of exploring dank places. the enemy grabbing mechanic! and the thing pawns do where they learn stuff about the world while off journeying with other players, then act on it when they come back to you, is real clever. does take ages for the battling to get more interesting - you can eventually change to new classes.. magic archer's fun, it's like Rez multi-lockon with bow & arrow.

DD so sort of terrible and videogamey af ("wolves arisen! they ill like fire" x5000) but def has some magic hidden depths i reckon..

I got my girlfriend interested in dungeons and dragons.. where the fuck do I go from here, I've never played it before! so hyped though, she's usually anti vidya and all, but is a huge LOTR fan so the whole talk-to-the-trees-no-guns aspect interested her

Action game or more turn based isometric RPG style?

I assume you'll want to co-op, for the former you have the Capcom DnD arcade Beat 'em Ups, and the latter you have Divinity: Original Sin II.

Also you may want to get her into the Youtube PnP series Critical Role, lots of girls like that.

thanks, but I meant more like an actual DnD session, I can see how that isn't too clear in my post. I've been playing Torment: Tides of Numenera every once in a while, seems more up my alley than the usual Divinity setting 🙂

Oh def play the original Planescape: Torment if you haven't, it's literally one of the best RPGs made. (Just put the difficulty down to easy and pump WIS at char creation for the most dialogue options).

Oh yeah I will, once I get my tower running again. Love that era of games, reminds me loads of Myst, Riven, just that otherworldly thing the 90s put in people's heads.. Moebius comes to mind :wub:

I've found D&D noobs enjoy the game more with some floor tile maps and miniature figures to help the imagination.  It's just also more fun imo.

That's funny. When I started we didn't use anything at all but now I play with someone who's been playing since the 80s and we always have to have a map and figurines.

Yeah back in the day we just traced a comic book character and made him your guy.  That's it, no fancy toys like today!  Much better today.

i've still never gotten into D+D. had a small group try it out but even the DM was a noob so it was a slow process of trial and error and figuring out how it all worked, and how to respond to the players needs and expectations... and eventually too much of the group lost interest and we stopped lol. i think having a DM who's not a noob will go a long way.

(hopefully this isnt too frowned upon..) Bought a secondhand dsi in hopes of loading up cfw, but it turns out it didnt have any of the software required so i was out of luck there (luckily have a flashcart..). I already had an original 2ds, but I got fed up with the horrible d-pad on the 2ds; its so mushy.  The slightly clicky d-pad on dsi is a huge improvement.  Ive read some people say gba/snes emulation on the dsi hardware is really bad, others say its acceptable.. ill have to try for myself and report back.

For Smash, you really need either a Pro Controller, or the Gamecube adapter and Gamecube controllers. Depends on how familiar/not you are with Smash.

i've played every smash game, probably put more hours into them than any other game/series. i don't fancy splurging any more than i already have, so i'll be playing with the joycons for now.

A Pro Controller can be had for around 55-60 USD, and a GameCube controller + the adapter is around that as well.

Any of you nerds have a Fortnite account they don't use anymore that I could merge mine with? I play it once a week with my cousin, admit it's pretty fun, we've been doing this since day 1.. The merging ends tomorrow, thought I'd try my luck here. No way I'm wasting sheckles on a galaxy shaded pickaxe..
