I know some people love Nioh like its the second coming but I always felt the sponginess was ridiculous and could never focus on the actual game.

Do I really need to stab a man in the face 20 times with a katana before it dies?

Never played it, but I'm gonna try it out.
I heard it's like a harder dark souls in a Japanese setting.
Maybe I'll first look up some recommended weapons. Dunno yet.

Picked up Hades again:  Finished a 20 heat run, but the additional challenge conditions make the game too stressful to continue.  Moved on to The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.  I'm not typically into adventure games or visual novels, but the Phoenix Wright games really click with me, and this is more of that, so I'm enjoying them.

I finally grabbed Hades on Game Pass after hearing so much about it. How long did it take you to manage your first full run?

I want to say around 25 or so, and I just hit 110 runs total.  The darkness upgrades and keepsakes help quite a bit.  As for powers, I found a lot of success with Athena's 'Divine Dash', which makes you invincible and reflect projectiles while you're dashing.  The gameplay itself is really addicting for me, but the game really distinguishes itself in the way it handles storytelling.  All these runs later, and I'm still unlocking little plotlines.  It makes me wish something like Destiny 2 could handle narrative that way.  It keeps the game really interesting for me.

I've got about 6 hades kills and got my first around 25 also. It was definitely a stars align build with at least two duo boons and charon bow.

Wonderful game!

Beat boss three and almost beat boss four on Returnal. I may be able to beat this game!

 

Unrelated, Death Loop is getting 10/10 review scores. Looks dope. I loved Dishonored 2 and Prey.

I had no idea Returnal would be my game of the year, but so far that's the case.  I ran out of stuff to do in that game(that didn't involve like a million hours of grinding), and I'd be all about any DLC if they announced it.

Yeah, pre-ordered Deathloop last night. Woke up this AM to see the 10/10 scores which has me hyped (I enjoyed Dishonored 2 but not as much as I thought I would, so trying to temper expectations going in on this one...)

If Dishonored 2 a) had a better story and b) had every level be as good as the clockwork mansion and crack in the slab, it would be a best of all time consideration.

I'm all of a sudden hyped for Death Loop and it wasn't on my radar at all.

Same boat.  Went from mild interest to looking forward to playing it tonight.

there's a new Bioshock game in development? I didn't even know.

or maybe I did and I forgot about it. I don't think Levine would be working on it, he seemed to have closed the chapter on it from his side. which means any new endeavour will be a risk... Bioshock is sacred to me so that's a bit worrying.

It hasn't been announced yet but it has been rumored for years now. Ken Levine has his own studio now (Ghost Story Studios) and the only thing we know they're working on is "We're working on a new immersive sci-fi game with RPG elements."

This is pretty nuts. Looks through that wiki link and non other than Ron Perlman is doing the voice of the main character, with Brent Spiner (Data) also playing one of the characters. I had completely forgotten about Zelazny until this post - I read a novel of his ages ago and was struck by how genre defying it was... chapters that were bits of poetry, just a total experimental approach to the genre. 

@ManjuShrican you recommend any books of his to check out? 

Read his novel Lord of Light.

Playing Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster. It's crazy how much of the original I remember from 30 years ago.

Yeah I heard there was an info leak that the next Bioshock installment in the works, but that's all I really know so far.


Got back into Fallout 4 lately, even though the game is still stupid in a lot of ways. Synthetik is still my top roguelike on the side.

Would be nice if the next Bioshock take place in a more recent or near-future setting like Prey though. The old-timey early 1910s/1960s thing is neat and all, but I'm craving something more modern.

      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!
