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. 

Sounds exciting. I'd also love to see him work on another Deus Ex but that seems not very likely.

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

Bought an Oculus Quest for my cousin who has had a really rough couple of years, divorce, loneliness, career difficulties, etc. Hoping it'll be a fun way for the two of us to hang out over long distances. We used to be super close but have lost touch in our adulthood... also hoping a few relaxing fishing games will bring my step dad some relief and escape - he's near the end of his days after fighting cancer for four years. He's mostly bed-ridden at this point, but he's been an avid fisher most of his life -- if he can grasp the controls, which is certainly more intuitive than a gamepad, but nonetheless difficult for noobs, I think it'll help put him in a more peaceful headspace. We'll see.

All that said, I'm gonna have a hard time parting with this headset, lol. Being untethered in VR is awesome. I showed it to my girlfriend's mom last night (used The Blu as her introduction, then let her try out an easy level in Beat Saber). She immediately checked amazon to buy one, haha. It's pretty wonderful that VR is so enticing for non-gamers.

Saw that on Twitter, they're also doing great things with artificial "hero arms" for limbless people.  An amazing time to be alive.

Mind blowing.

Countdown to cyborg porn. Cyporng.

Just pre-ordered Doom Eternal. Guess I'll find out if it'll run on my 6.5 year old laptop. Doom 2016 runs fine on it tho.

Also just found out there's a Skyrim mod that adds guns to the game. Tempting to start a new run just for that.

I think I am growing out of gaming. I don't feel the need to play games anymore and I haven't played any games since the end of 2019, it used to be my main hobby though

Might not be long for me as well. Bought my first analogue synth last weekend and am tempted to buy a drum machine in the near future as well. So making more tunes may be back on the table soon.

Compared to my 20s though I probably spend about a third of the time on gaming now that I did back then.

It comes and goes depending on what goes on in your life.

I don't play as much as I used to, but I still do casual gaming (GTA/Red Dead 2 Online etc). I realized that I just couldn't be bothered to put in the time to be really good at FPS games anymore. I used to play them competitively nearly 20 years ago. The upside is that I write a lot more music.

I finished Terminator: Resistance last night. But already started a second run because I'm not happy with how my choices affected the primary NPCs late game. So I want to make sure they actually survive this time.

Otherwise, idk why IGN and Metacritic crapped on this game, because I found it quite decent. And it's actually part dating sim, but with only the most important parts. Plus you get a shit ton of plasma weapons to mow down killer robots with on top of that in the second half.

Now I need to actually go watch the first two Terminator films on which this game is based. Many in my generation and prior might consider it blasphemy that I haven't actually watched them yet.

This bollocking bit of The Witness is still bugging me, getting so close to the end though. Get a nervous twitch whenever I hear In The Hall Of The Mountain King

Decided to replay the Mass Effect trilogy. On the third one now and goddamn I miss the first one. Should’ve stayed an RPG instead of becoming a shooter with endless linear dialogue “trees.” 
 

Still worth it for the Citadel and Leviathan DLC I suppose. I love that universe.

That's true for so many rpg series that started in the 90s, 00s and had iterations in the late 00s/early 10s.

      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!
