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

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

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

Still playing through Control... fantastic game.

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

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.

sounds sweet! i didn't have the luxury of owning a ps4 pro (peasant base level console for me) so that should tide me over until the big titles start dropping.

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.

I bought the full game but haven't played it yet. I have a bad habit of this when it comes to Steam purchases. I'm guessing it's a Souls-like then? One of the best I've played in recent years is Hyper Light Drifter.

I had to do a fresh restart on Fallout: New Vegas recently because of bullshit corrupted quicksave & autosave files. So this time I'm doing another run with autosave on travel only, but otherwise only manual saves just before ending play sessions. Apparently save files can get corrupted over time if overwritten too frequently, so quicksaving is out from now on. As much as I love this game, it isn't without its jank.

I beat Hyper Light Drifter. I did enjoy that. Got it for free from Epic Games Store.

Ghostrunner is first person wall running and killing. Like a modern Mirror's Edge with a sword. It moves too fast for me.

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).

You can play Switch Online classic games for 7 days offline, but you still need an active account:

Goroga is a fantastic/concise game. It had my girlfriend and I captivated as we played it through in one sitting.

Also I recommended it a page ago but I just beat Creaks and highly recommend it. Gorgeous and well designed puzzler.

Last campfire looks like I would enjoy it but it's not yet available on steam. Assuming it's exclusive to epic or another store? Lame. Luckily I'm a "#patientgamer" lol and will just play it some day when it comes to steam

I bought it on PS4, but I missed the sale that's happening on it. I use both Epic and Steam. Don't really understand Steam loyalty.

Unrelated, I was finally able to snag a PS5. Feel like the bundle is kind of a ripoff, but I got Miles Morales with it. Should come in two weeks.

Was discussed earlier in this thread iirc, but for me it's not a loyalty thing. Steam is just where all my library is so it would be annoying to have a separate launcher for one or two "other" games. I barely play games as it is, I'm mostly just catching up on games i bought and haven't got around to playing, or replaying classics, so it makes sense to use steam to browse and launch and chat with friends. Plus you can load games downloaded from Gog (another storefront) into steam so those play nice together

Finally done with DOOM Eternal. Some of the encounters in the last level were actually difficult and fun, but the final boss was mostly annoying. In fact, most of the boss fights in the game are mostly annoying. I have a lot of gripes but it's not a bad game. I'm watching John Romero play the first levels and it feels like a different game at the beginning.

Moving on to DEADBOLT and Return of the Obra Dinn next.

ya I don't get the loyalty thing but Steam is the main place I buy games, it's convenient, biggest library, etc. Still I'd highly recommend having Epic too since they give away so much free shit, I've scratched a ton of games off my steam wishlist because they showed up as Epic freebies.

This has been really nice from Epic. Tons of quality free games over the last year and a half. I also like that they charge developers less in fees.

 

Unrelated, beat the first section of The Last Campfire. Gives me some N64 Zelda vibes in terms of how the world is structured, though the gameplay is a lot simpler.

Except you don't get the PS5 upgrade nor can you buy the DLC for it

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl remakes (as expected) for Switch, and a new Pokemon MMO that looks like it runs on the Breath of the Wild engine...

Epic Games Store is missing so many features that are basics on Steam. That's a big reason why people are reluctant to use Epic Games Store.

DEADBOLT is pretty fun. It's a lot like Gunpoint. I like the goofy spooky universe it's in. Zombies and vampires are in gangs.

Started rdr online, it's really grindy, but it's nice to walk around in the beautiful scenery again. Somehow the grindiness can be nice if you just want to mindlessly tick off some challenges and reap gold

Started the ff7 remake too. It's really good.

I've been playing BoTW, SSB4, & Mario Kart 8 on my PC. Cemu is fantastic once it's configured correctly. It took a while to gather what the best settings were, but it's very, very smooth now. You can even get online on the official Nintendo servers. Still some infrequent Smash emulation issues but I'm sure they'll get fixed soon. It's great way to experience these games and render at higher resolutions. BoTW really needs to be played at 60FPS. It's too bad Nintendo are all about novelty and gimmicks these days with its hardware. Maybe next generation will get a remaster that will release it proper. Getting good on Master mode.. difficult, but the DLC gear (Phantom armor, Majora's mask) make it bearable.

 

Other then that some occasional CoD, usually hardcore Search & Destroy.

Oh yeah, that one's by the Risk Of Rain devs. Might need to grab that one at some point.

      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!
