Such a good game.

Just picked it up for 25€. Hurray for performance patching games that I have been meaning to play that are also on sale.

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

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

I like this new Fallout 3 DLC

I beat Resident Evil 3 remake. I thought it was great, so I don't get the hate. Yeah, it is shorter than RE2, but pretty fun. I think I'm going with Subnautica next since people seem to be suggesting to wait on Fallen Order until I can get my hands on a PS5.

Maaan I can't get enough of Prodeus. It's like pixel Doom 2016 but with the tactical feel and weapon/enemy variety of famous GZDoom mods like Brutal Doom and Project Brutality. Hope the campaign gets completed this year.

Haven't done much VR gaming tho since I got my Index six months ago. I played a bit of Boneworks last Nov but never finished it. HL: Alyx is still awesome - would like to stream it later this year if I can figure out how.

I enjoyed it, but there's a clear conflict of methodical gameplay mechanics introduced in RE2 and RE3 style of action. It feels like a DLC to indulge in more dynamic and less developed aspects of the main game. The constant boss fight comes off too corny narratively

Tea For God looks p cool but I wonder if it's only Oculus-compatible?


This upcoming VR title looks intriguing as well - looks like it'll be available on Steam in April

(I only know a few Russian words so far, but this is just a demo vid)

You can choose a different mode at the start which turns off Hunger and Water requirements.
The game is challenging enough with those, so I can recommend playing that way. (On your second play-through you could try playing with hunger and thirst.)
I also suggest drawing a Map for yourself with your base / starting location in the centre and with the big crashed ship to the right.
This helps immensely. As you can get lost very easily, especially when it's dark.
Mark the different Biomes on this map. They contain different materials, creatures and plants. They are key to your progress.
Try to find all crashed escape pods. They will give you hints and progress the underlying story. They will also help you find new biomes.
And explore every new wreck you find completely. This way you'll be able to unlock all sorts of cool new stuff, allowing you to get new tools, base expansions, etc...
Most importantly upgrades allow you to dive deeper and deeper...
Diving deeper = Progress in this game. Really cool and innovative design imo.
(this game has tons of secrets)

Celeste was great, I was really surprised how much it resonated with me emotionally. And fun jumpy jumps

Just bought this on Steam and played it. So yes, it is a real game. On Steam.

Also played Cyberpunk first. This one seems to have aged better after the fact.

yakuza 7
loving it

best game series

Would you say Like a Dragon would be a good entry point for the series? From what I've heard, LaD changes up not only the protagonist, but a lot of the gameplay style compared to previous entries in the series...

I'd say the best entry point is Yakuza 0 and after that play Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2. Those are absolutely fantastic games. The battle system in Yakuza 7 has changed into a turn based jrpg style battle. It is fun but  totally different from the previous ones. To get the best Yakuza experience I totally recommend starting from Yakuza 0 which is a fantastic game.

i started with Yakuza 0 and ultimately gave up maybe halfway. Combat was boring, and I wasn't into the story. I did love how they had classic Sega games you could play inside the game though.

^^ i had no idea how bad either game was and only tried them for because i like the films. i had played t2 on gameboy but this was exceptionally difficult. at first i thought it was just me but figured it's somewhat unplayable. pinocchio at least looks good.🤓

If there's a competent Terminator game, the best one I can think of in recent history is Terminator: Resistance released in November 2019.

Movie-base games were generally pretty janky back in the early days of consoles, mostly due to technology constraints at the time I think. Goldeneye 007 was a rare exception. (no pun intended)

Horror movie games on NES were the worst

"Hey, is the sound design for the RE: Verse trailer done?"
"Erh... yeah, sure..."
"Cool."

Blasphemous just looks like Dead Cells with a different art style. I love Dead Cells and the whole Metroidvania concept but it's getting tired.

this was a stupid post. Blasphemous ended up being one of my favourite games from that year. people should stop using the term "metroidvania", it says nothing about what a game has or doesn't have to offer other than that it's a 2-d sidescroller with combat.

speaking of which, Dead Cells just got an update.

      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!
