Oh have you played it already? I haven't got around to it yet (tbh I thought it's still in the making - I didn't check). If you say it's extremely well done, then I will be extremely glad to check it out.

Yeah they've done a good job with it; modernising it enough (better shadows, fog effects, etc) but nothing looks out of place or makes it look weird. Some Quake source ports can push things too far and it detracts from the old school feel. I think this gets the balance right.

This has been done by Nightdive Studios (same people who did the DOOM 64 PC port) and it's extremely well done. I'm very impressed with this reissue, so far.

Nightdive did the remaster? They remastered Blood (Fresh Supply) a couple of years ago as well. AND their full remake of System Shock should be available soon...hopefully.

Given the work they've done the last 8 years (including Turok and Strife remasters), they've become one of my favorite game companies.

Gonna give this Quake remaster a go now..

I'm keen on it. Nightdive are great, I'm so glad they exist. hoping they get past this delay that's holding up the Blade Runner remaster.

I hope they do Quake II . That would make my day...

Yeah I instabought the Quake switch port - I know the base game well enough and don't care about playing it with joysticks. It's a blast running through the levels on a handheld device BUT I really feel like I'm gonna throw up after a 15 minutes session lol.

I also started Axiom Verge 2, it looks beautiful, feels really good to play. Seems to be more on the exploration side, but I feel kinda lost on the map and put it aside for now. It will be a very good game to keep me busy until Metroid Dread comes out !

Finished the base game of the Quake remaster, and now playing the Scourge of Armagon campaign for the first time. And just now bought Perilous Warp, White Hell, and Dread Templar on Steam on top of that. 

With this whole Realms Deep expo it feels like we're in the midst of a "boomer shooter" renaissance. Pretty soon there'll be too many to keep up with.

Metroid is about the only full game I plan on buying since Mario Golf was a dud. The BloodRayne 2D remaster does look good though.

standalone? either way, nice. Blasphemous has really gained more traction than I would have thought.

edit: I see it's a "concluding chapter" to be downloaded into the main game, it seems

Blasphemous: Wounds of Eventide is a free DLC/update for the main game, coming 09 December 2021.

Sunshine Animation Studio Madrid made the awesome 2D animation for the trailer.
Pretty, pretty, pretty good. Stuff like this makes me want to go into 2D animation.
It seems they also made a trailer for Temtem (a Pokemon-like game on pc).

The devs also announced Blasphemous II.
Oooh yeah! Coming in 2023.
I have unwavering faith in this.
It's going to be miraculous.

I've been playing the Super Mario 3D World on Switch. Earlier itt I said I'm done with playing Super Mario games but here are we are again. There are so many fucking extra levels and worlds in this game, jfc. I guess I've finished everything except the last one that requires to collect all the stamps? And you can get all the stamps only by finishing the game with every fucking character? ffs.

The Bowser's Fury is included also but I have only briefly tried it.

Also I've played some StarTropics on the NES emulator and it's such a ridiculous game but somehow addictive. A kind of Zelda rip-off but with weird sci-fi/fantasy/tropical vibe. The hero's main weapon is a yo-yo and he goes around in a submarine..

I've been playing Psychonauts 2, which is good fun and doesn't have the control and camera issues the original had. Also dipping into the Ascent, which is pretty janky and flawed, but I still love it. I think I'm about to hit a point where everything it has to offer turns into routine/repetition unfortunately.

Star Tropics...holy shit that takes me back. We're talking literally three decades ago.

Puss 'n Boots & Kiwi Kraze are another couple of NES titles I ought to revisit at some point. Idk if they can be played on Switch tho - emu might be the only option. (Who knows how obtainable the original consoles are these days..)

You have to try Bowser's Fury. Amazing game.

Oh yeah, that was a good one! The idea with the hidden message irl blew my mind quite a bit back then. 🙂

So supposedly quake for switch has some audio problems: the nin soundtrack is extremely quiet and sound effects delay like half a second after they are supposed to play, for example when you shoot a gun or collect ammo.

Both could be fixed easily in an update and I think I'll wait to pick it up until then.

      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!
