Finally finished LoZ: A Link to the Past on Switch although I cheated a ton with the rewind functionality. I've started the game maybe 5 times in the past and decided to finally play it through.

I really started playing Zeldas beginning from Wind Waker and I've pretty much finished them all after that except for Skyward Sword and the GBA games. Maybe I'll get the Skyward Sword HD when it comes out later this year and finally do that. Well, at least if this fucking pandemic keeps on going.

Been playing Control, it's pretty cool, although a bit repetitive/grindy, maybe I just suck at it. 

Played call of the sea, it's all right I guess, perfect game pass game, not sure if I'd buy it to play it. Probably not. It's a bit underwhelming tbh.

Loving a plague tale.

Really digging carrion.

Having fun with Dishonored 2.

Game pass is spoiling me, I'll probably never do anything creative ever again. Thanks, Microsoft

Been playing it too - has an interesting vibe and good sound design. Curious now how it ends up (although somewhat predictable from what I can tell so far)

Not really clicking with me that one. I have been spending too much time in offices in my life already I guess lol. /traumatized

 

 

 

That's actually one thing I really like about Control - the amazing architecture of the building you're in...

Ghosts N' Goblins and 1943 are free on Capcom Arcade on Switch today...

So you can play SNES games on Switch then. I've been wondering about that. Because if you can play games on it from any Nintendo platform pre-Game Cube, then I'll consider buying a Switch for that aspect alone.

It's a subscription based system. ~4USD/month - ~20USD/year. With that you can play all the games above and also some Switch originals.

Some of the emulated games also have Switch specific versions and the rewind system is really handy in some of the old games that are ridiculously hard by modern standards.

Has anyone tried the leaked remake of GoldenEye 007 for the Xbox 360?

 

Yeah, got this up and running in like 10 minutes (Xenia emulator, download the files from Archive.org, open the file. that's it). I only played a little bit of the Dam level, but enough to be like, yes, this is everything I"d hoped for a remaster. It looks the way my nostalgia glasses remember it (i.e., it looks better than it was, but like it seems like it should have been) and the controls are on point (played with a wireless Xbox One S controller). Some hitches playing on a gaming laptop, clearly some final bugs that could be squashed, but 99% perfect. 

Haven't revisited only b/c a)time b)it's hard knowing that multiplayer is a hypothetical option but not yet working (people w/ modded Xbox 360's can play via Xlink, but xenia doesn't support netplay). The fact that we are all, like, just one last step to being able to replicate, remotely, the experience of 4 player splitscreen at home is maddening. ...

Great question and honestly I have no idea... I wasn’t following the thread and just saw “earthbound” and replied impulsively 😂. One of the best series of all time I hope it’s avail on the switch for y’all

I 100 percented Bowser's Fury. Two days worth of playing. Still is a good game though a tad short but who said all games should be long, right? Not super difficult but I had some frustrated moments. Was cool to play a mario game that was open world. Will be interesting to see if nintendo  releases the next mario game in this style and if they can one up it.

I keep coming back to dirt rally 2.0. Very challenging to get into, took me awhile to get through a stage without going off the track. I still stuck, but having a good run is super rewarding. Game looks mighty fine on pc too.

I tried Cuphead. Unbelievably difficult. Took me dozens of tries to beat the first boss on simple, and then they told me you don't get credit unless you beat it on regular. I am just terrible at platformers. Art style is amazing though.

Keep in mind though, so far it's only NES/SNES - no N64, no GameCube or Wii/Wii U and Nintendo is providing these for play; you do not download these to your system and requires a Nintendo Online subscription to play them. The positive aspect is you don't pay extra for them (beyond the NO subscription).

Many PS4 games have free upgrades that put them at 4K/60 or higher, and the PS Plus Collection for PS5 has some of the best PS4 games available if you have a PSN subscription.

As for dedicated PS5 games... yes, things are a bit slim - Spider Man: Miles Morales is excellent as is the Demon's Souls remake on PS5.

Downloaded the Ghostrunner demo. Couldn't get the hang of the controls. Kept dying near instantly. Having a bad run with hard games. 

Started Gorogoa on PS4 and downloaded The Last Campfire too (from No Man's Sky devs). Still waiting on a PS5 to play Miles Morales.

god damn I regret getting into Warframe. I laughed at WoW players for years and then got sucked into this shit, joke's on me.

try Ruiner next to solidify this experience and then finish with Devil Daggers to give up on life entirely.

      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!
