Metroid Fusion is awesome. Haven't played it in ages though. The dev team nailed the creepy atmosphere.

Now I wish I had my old GBA just so I can play it and Zero Mission again.

Emulators!

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

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

Been playing Persona 5 Royal the past few days. Got like halfway through the original (which is like 50 hours) and it's great starting over, there's so many little things they changed. Also it looks better, guess it's running at checkerboarded 4K downsampled to 2K on my monitor (with a PS4 Pro). Love the artstyle, makes me want to hang out in Shibuya 🙂

Any PS5 heads pick up Returnal yet? Thinking about grabbing it but the (at least current) lack of autosave makes me nervy....

Returnal seems fun but seeing the 85$ pricetag on my store end makes me shudder. Don't have a PS5 so can't help there

^yeah, ouch. Also, it's actually the "fun" part that I'm most on the fence about. W/ limited time and whatnot a bullet hell roguelike seems like it could be just another job, ya know? Reviews are through the roof tho... probably pick it up on inevitable sale at some point....

It looks awesome, but still can't get my hands on a PS5. And think i would play Resident Evil Village first if I did manage to get one.

Waiting for the price (drop) - want to play it bad but 70USD is steep - I liked it when Housemarque made 20 buck games

@onecasemanmmm, fair point. Biohazard was such a good game - somehow keep forgetting Village is around the corner. 

@Joyrexikr! Pretty nuts that games are inching closer to 100$ than $50 these days (at least on next gen)...

Yeah exactly, never played the original myself, but Royal: what a great fucking game. Someone commented on here it's the comfiest game, and that's really what it is. 

Also started Kingdom Come deliverance. It's got some eurojank going on, but it's really immersive and also great

The Resident Evil/Biohazard mod community on PC is amazing - I accidently saw "thicc Claire Redfield fishnet suit with jiggle physics" when I was looking up a RE2 video.

I just started Persona 4 Golden. it's the first game I've played in the series so I'm still getting used to it, but after the first few hours I'm really starting to enjoy it. It's interesting how your characters' friendships and psychological struggles are tied in with the RPG mechanics. And some of the Persona designs are amazing, I'm looking forward to seeing more of them

Same. Can't justify spending €80 on any game. I can already buy the disc for €70 from Amazon...

I like the fact that there's also a mod that replaces Mr. X with Shrek. But mods or no, nothing beats Claire's booty physics.

I might "accidentally" have to come across that video myself 😉

EdIt: interesting article just came across the feed about the topic of 70$ game particularly in light of difficulty, etc.

Alright, to all you old school Metroid aficionados:

Drop whatever you're doing and play this Metroid Prime 2D demo RIGHT NAO!

https://forum.prime2d.com/t/prime-2d-demo-v0-1-21-4-1/6582

It's absolutely stunning!

prime-2d-nintendo-life-img.original.jpg

It's a fun demo. I hope they can make it into a full game one day.
(However, I'm afraid that the devs might get a C&D from Nintendo before they can continue the project.)

I don't understand why Nintendo isn't doing more with their Metroid franchise.
I guess it wouldn't make as much money as their other franchises.
Metroidvanias might have become too niche for them?
It really doesn't have to be a AAA 3D game.
(Metroid Prime 4 might be cancelled or delayed indefinitely, right?)
Why not let a really small team make new 2D Metroid games? No need to invest all that much.
If indie devs can do it, why couldn't they? Look at Hollow Knight, Ori, and Bloodstained.
😕

Played the Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.
It's a fun little Indie 2D Metroidvania / Platformer Game. 
+ You unlock different characters with different powers while playing the game.
+ Really beautiful Art Style. Looks like a colorful stylized comic book.
+ Able to buy better gear.
+ A small bit of Exploration & Backtracking.
+ You can switch the Visuals & Music on the go between the 1989 8-bit Original and the 2017 Remake.
- Mario-like movement.
- Short.
Overall I liked it.
Tip:

Spoiler

After getting Mouse-Man buy the Tasmanian Sword from a hidden Shop near the end of The Underground area.
The Tasmanian Sword allows you to switch between characters instantly, without needing a transformation room.

I thought Returnal looked and sounded silly when it was announced, but after watching a gameplay trailer, decided to give it a try.  It's kind of a rogue-like/Metroid/bullet hell thing, but it really clicked with me.  It may be worth waiting until some shitty bugs are ironed out, and the developers may cave and add a save system, which would make things more convenient, but overall it's excellent.  Once it's patched a bit, I'd definitely recommend it.

Resident Evil 8 is a great time so far, one of my favorites in the franchise. it's more action than 7, but it's not all-out action like like RE4-RE5-RE6.

it leans more into camp than 7 but still remains scary, especially on hardcore mode where ammunition gets used faster.

lot of enemy and gameplay variety. i'm enjoying taking my time.

Got bored of video games around 2 years ago but every now and then I'll stick on podcast or a good album and I'll fuck around on some Counterstrike Source servers. Surprisingly the multiplayer is still extremely active considering the game's around 17 years old now. Most servers I go on are full (32-64 people).

Yes, it's an excellent game - a shame the follow up Monster Boy game isn't as fun (from playing a demo)...

      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!
