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

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

I like this new Fallout 3 DLC

I used to have both devices, but now only have one. Gave my DS Lite to a friend as a farewell gift last September, since I haven't used it in ages anyway.

Tried the Terminator: Resistance game last night, the one that came out two months ago. It's supposed to be special in that it's a faithful tribute to the first two films, though I haven't watched either. About as mediocre as I expected so far, but I'll continue regardless. Plays like a truncated modern Fallout game basically. Even has nearly identical lockpicking mechanics.

I'm currently playing Divinity: Original Sin 2, damn amazing and engaging rpg battle system. I actually look forward to playing it at night which really hasn't been a thing since my early teens.

It's basically Baldur's Gate 2 on steroids. Thus far BG2 has the better story but Divinity definitely has the better battle system. But of course it wouldn't exist without BG2, so.

Did you play the games before it? Divine Divinity 1 & Beyond Divinity? They were essentially BG games like Icewind Dale...  Beyond Divinity was just as good.... I felt like it fell off after that including Divinity II and Original Sin. =(

Maybe I just need to revisit. But if you enjoyed the BG games, if you haven't played Icewind Dale give that a shot + Tyranny. Once you're done with Original Sin 2 of course. Surprised to see someone else on the watmms that enjoy those games tbh.

Edit: I imagine you've played all of these, sorry. Just got excited to see someone else playing a classic lol.

Actually no I haven't. I had no clue about Larian Studios until I saw they were doing BG3, and now that I've played DOS 2 a bit (in the second act on explorer mode) I am super excited to see the best possible studio is making BG 3.

Decided to check them out and I'm wondering how in the world I've never heard of at least Original Sin 1 and 2. Every time I've looked up "Games like Baldur's Gate" I'll see Icewind Dale or Planescape Torment, but I just recently found out about Divinity like 2 months ago.

I remember you recommending some games like BG2 to me before, but I don't know if you recommended OS 2. Do you really not like Original Sin 2? It Feels like I'm playing 3D chess with RPG mechanics.

I still haven't played Icewind Dale, and I almost beat Planescape Torment, but my save folder corrupted randomly toward the end. So I need to tackle that one again.

I absolutely love these kind of games too. 
For me it all started with Neverwinter Nights. Played it a bit too much maybe; I still regularly have flashbacks to that game. ?
Right now I'm playing Divinity Original Sin in Split-Screen with the gf on pc. We both control 2 characters. The battles are really fun as you can come up with some awesome tactics and combos together. Can highly recommend playing it with 2.

angry video game nerd 1 and 2 deluxe coming to the switch and steam. :music:

I keep meaning to get around to those at some point. They look really fun (and frustrating)

I started playing Kentucky Route Zero in addition to Death Stranding because I had a long flight. Love the art style so far. Story still picking up steam.

Dragon Quest 11 and Pokémon are the gifts that just keep on giving.  Was gonna give Tokyo Mirage Sessions a try bc of the Fire Emblem crossover, but the combat seems unbearable.  There's also an official Nintendo Mario Kart 8 DX tournament currently happening, code: 2403-5150-5963

Latest update/pre-alpha demo of Nightdive Studios' System Shock reboot (1.5 hours tho)

 

I keep getting confused because a remake of System Shock 1 is coming out in addition to System Shock 3.

Yup. In fact, my understanding is that Warren Spector, the original creator (who also directed Deus Ex), is working on the third game. But lore-wise SShock 3 will be more of a pre-sequel, since it takes place after the first game but before the second.

      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!
