Paid 45 quid for COD MW only for it to cut my sound out when I play it and crash every 5 minutes. My fault for knowingly ordering the shit burger off the menu I guess.

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 wasn't enjoying The Outer Wilds, so I just watched the rest of Youtube to see the story. There's something really frustrating about an exploration game with time limits, especially when the controls are so clunky.

I started Days Gone, and I like it so far.

I just finished shenmue 3, which is the only Kickstarter project I've backed because I really loved the original 2 on the Dreamcast 20 years ago.

It ended with "to be continued..." and a note saying yu suzuki hopes to be able to make shenmue 4.....

I googled shenmue 4.....not confirmed...no news about it.

Livid. What the fuck. Why didn't he just wrap it up if he wasn't sure he'd be able to do ANOTHER sequel. Cunt. Cunt cunt cunt.

(absolutely loved it btw)

I'm playing Celeste. I'm loving it. Very challenging, but it just comes together extremely fresh and emotional, which is strange for a platformer.

 

It's interesting, because when I first saw it, I immediately thought about Jumper, a very old game made in Game Maker which was the shizznit 15 years ago on Game Maker forums... Well, later I read that it's the same dude who made both of these games. Crazy how some people have such a strong distinctive feel.

It's challenging but doesn't feel impossible. Really good, agreed.

I cancelled my preorder when I realized I had no compelling reason to (re)play this.

Unlike you, I have a good reason to replay it because as much as it hurts me to say it,

Spoiler

I never beat Sephiroth. 

The way I remember it, the constant onslaught of random fights got on my nerves and I began to bail on most of them to make progress with the story, so that when I reached the end I was too weak from lack of fighting. ? I meant to go back and train myself for the boss fight of boss fights, but then I got high or something and never finished the game. So I've still got a bone to pick with good old Sephi, and I've been sort of waiting for an opprtunity, but now that's finally available, I just saw a video review, and now I'm kind of afraid to play it. It just doesn't look very appealing to me, not like the game I loved so much back then (well, apart from the gazillion random fights). To me, it looks like they disposed of its charm and turned it into just another live action game. I think I expected some retro feel, but the spirit seems to be gone. It just looks too modern to me, if that makes sense. I bet it's still a great game, but to my own surprise, I'm not really interested in it, and apparently it's just the first section of the original too, which wouldn't really help me in my quest for revenge anyway 

Is there a port of the original somewhere for PS3 or PS4? I might just play that. Or perhaps I'll dust off the PS1, look for the old memory cards, pick up where I left decades ago and start manning and  leveling up. I need closure.

Played Sim Meier's Alpha Centauri for the first time, very good game so far, and unique so even though it's 20 years old, doesn't FEEL that way.

I played FF7 for about 18 months, beat the extra weapons bosses, but couldn't get thru Sephiroth's crater, it kicked my ass.

Yeah, I believe it is available for PS4 for like 8 bucks - go finish it there, because it is going to be a LONG time (I'm thinking 2024-25 before they finish this "remake" at the pace they're going).

Anyone who doesn't have a NEO·GEO Mini console for their retro mini console collection can pick one up on Amazon now for $30.00: https://www.amazon.com/NEOGEO-Mini-International-electronics-games/dp/B07D1KN661

Streets of Rage 4 is a must play really.

Been a fan for a while, I spent hours and hours beating the first three games with a friend of mine few years ago so we discovered together this new game and we really weren't disappointed. Took us 3 or 4 hours to beat the game a first time, but we are already training ourselves to beat our high score lol.

The music is on point too as well, and it runs flawlessly on Switch !

Played some Jedi Academy on Switch yesterday, there's a surprising number of people doing online lightsaber battles.  They patched out the PC players that were griefing everyone.

Ok WATMM, need your input. Considering and impulse buy of either Sekiro or Doom: Eternal. I know, almost diametrically opposed game styles, but here we are. Straw poll time: which would you choose? Bonus points: why?

You hold the fate of my evening/weekend in your hands!

I only played Doom Eternal, but if you like Dark Souls, then I'm pretty sure either one would work for you.

Even though I managed to finish it, Doom Eternal was a bit over-the-top for me personally, not to mention being sullied by at least two major unexplained plot changes from Doom 2016. And the platforming/parkour between arena brawls felt out of place to me for a Doom game. Plus you're super limited on Shotgun ammo. But they did improve the Plasma Gun. Not sure if I'll play it again though.

But that's just my personal take. It felt a bit polarizing to me overall, but there's still the possibility that you'd enjoy it more than I did.

Has anyone seen the recent leaks for The Last of Us 2? Apparently, the story and certain characters are considered "controversial" and have gotten a lot of flak from gamers ... Dunno why, as I try to avoid major spoilers, but I guess it might have to do with the female lead? I'm still looking forward to it and hope it gets released soon; Naughty Dog games are pretty much the only must-haves for me these days.

Sorry if this has been discussed, haven"t been following the thread.

Cheers! I ended going w Sekiro. So far, it's great. Punishing at times, but not surprised - never actually played any From Software titles but I know Jedi: Fallen Order borrows liberally from the play mechanics, so know it's a matter of deep learning mixed with reflexes that carries the day.  

I think what has sold me is the atmosphere. There is something that feels very deep and ancient about the setting - in some ways makes me think of team Ico games, or, perhaps, playing through an anime.

Love that the game defaults to Japanese as the spoken language too.

You'd also enjoy Hyper Light Drifter I think. It's from 2016, but it incorporates that same vein of combat style. If you're on PC though I highly recommend a USB controller.

I had to give up on it. I love the atmosphere and the mechanics too (love stealth), but kept getting my ass kicked by some of the bosses. May get back to it at some point.

Yeah, my read through this topic suggests a lot of people hit a frustration point which puts them off from finishing. Will see - already hit an early mini-mini boss that I died at like 12 times last night. ...

Currently getting back into development on Open Tibia an open source private version of Tibia now newly compatible with Unity so you can mod the client, graphics, gameplay to your liking. I'm gonna try to add music to the game, learn a thing or two about game dev and server hosting.

      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!
