want to play RDR2. Is it the holy grail of vidya as some say?

It's a slow game. But it's one of the best.

I started playing it and after about 12 hours I realized I probably would never finish it. Never touched it again. It was good though, but it's needy. Doesn't value your time. I mean, 12 hours is plenty for me, close to the limit of how much time I'll spend on a game. I feel most games are too long, but here I felt I had barely scratched the surface. It's probably great if you have unlimited free time.

Has anyone else here played the original Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 also known outside Japan as the Lost Levels? Holy fuck it's brutal. It's not just difficult, it's evil. There are warp zones that take you back, all sorts of sudden unexpected death traps, invisible blocks you need to find to progress, you need to be a small Mario in order to finish one of the levels and the only new power up is a mushroom that will kill you and it appears right at the beginning of the first level. 💀

Haha, yeah, also known as Super Mario USA.
It's nuts. I can't remember every single detail of the story, but Nintendo had a quality assurance guy in the US who would play through all of their games and when it came to The Lost Levels he was like, "we can't release that in the US...". So they took Doki Doki Panic and changed into a Mario game.

Once you're done playing that you should try out Super Mario Special for the PC88 or just watch Jeff Gerstmann play it. It starts out fine and then turns into a fucking nightmare.

Late to the party with RDR2 as well. Started two months ago, and with job and family I don't have a lot of spare time, but I have an hour or two now and then, and I just recently completed the story missions. After playing shooters since I was a kid, I've enjoyed more open world history driven games for the last few years. I don't have another game waiting, and I have no hurries finishing this one. I enjoy just being in the Wild West riding around doing sidequests and bountys. A few nights ago I had a few single malts and just roamed around and was ambushed twice at camp and in a forest at night, scaring the hell out of me. It's funny how strange things happen if you decide to travel without any particular goal.

R2D2 RDR2 is still on my pending to-play list. Can't remember if I already bought it or not, but I keep hearing good things about it.

Wish they wouldn't outsource the online mode for RDR2, it's such a shitshow. Besides that it was definitely mesmerising, especially the tech/random handcrafted moments. Staring at someone at the camp for a few minutes blew my mind, they get angry and confused and eventually someone comes and punches you in the face for being a weirdo. Couldn't stop laughing

As much as time I spent playing BOTW during the pandemic I hope I'm not still stuck at home playing video games when the sequel comes out, sorry Nintendo. Also it doesn't look like much of an improvement to the first one which was released over 4 years ago already? But in case I'm somehow in some fucking lockdown or quarantine then I guess I'll get it but I'm hoping my Switch is just collecting dust at that point.

The only thing I wanted to see is more enemy variety and they showed the same goblin designs again. Oh and a couple of them are sitting on a stone golem. *owen wilson wow*

      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!
