    Lots of creeping dread with one mild jump scare. Very gory. Just watched Peanut Butter Falcon it was okay but Dakota Johnson needs to stop being in films. Shia Laboeuf does a good job and the actor that plays Zach is great. The problem is that Johnson's character is bot underwritten and she does nothing with it. There are too many side stories that don't pay off and even a guest appearance from Jake 'The Snake' and Mick Foley don't really save it.
  3. Movie/TV recommendations

    There aren't really many jump scares, none that I recall, but there is a fair amount of very realistic grisly violence, so fair warning for that.

    As long as we're talking about Midsommar, is it scary in like a "stuff popping out" or "sudden string instruments" or "loud noises out of nowhere" sense? I can't watch movies like that, so if it's that kind of horror movie I'll have to skip it (although I did manage to make it through Get Out, albeit barely). But lots of "horror" movies (Alien, Jaws, Suspiria, The Thing, zombie movies, etc.) are fine for me. Any chance I could handle Midsommar?
  5. Free Music Resource - Over 1800 Tracks

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE: All of my music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more creepy music tracks this month. I had a super busy week creating original music for some indie projects, but I managed to get a few new free tracks done for everyone: On my Fantasy 9 page: MELANQUIRKY HOLLOW – (Looping) – Here’s a strange little piece that combines melancholy with quirkiness. Perhaps for humorously sad inhabitants of a fantasy village who stumble around drunk all the time? This one definitely falls into the “I’d be very interested to see what someone uses this for” category…lol. On my Urban Ambience page: STREET_R29 – General street ambience. No foot traffic. Truck passes. Distant brakes. STREET_E30 – General street ambience. No foot traffic. Have a good weekend!

  7. [WIP] Bite the Bullet

    Hello, everyone. Our new game 'Bite the Bullet' will be released soon and we need a little feedback:) Satisfy your appetite for destruction in this roguelite RPG shooter where you must eat to powerup your character, weapons, and abilities. Consume strange species to add new entries to DarwinCorp’s mysterious Compendium. Catalyze crafting fermentations in your belly by eating enemies! Explore three branching skill trees based on your diet - remember, you are what you eat! The ultimate strategic mission of biological corporation DarwinCorp is to collect genetic material from every species in the galaxy, through research, experimentation, and force, if necessary. For particularly "involuntary" specimens, Darwin Corp brings in Chewie and Chewella, two mercenaries with razor-sharp skills and a hunger for success. Unbeknownst to their employer, Chewie and Chewella collect genetic information by eating their targets, using bio-implants from their time on the blasted remains of Earth - a sign of their true heritage as half human, half Ghouls. However, when a DarwinCorp executive sends Chewie and Chewella on a mission to Earth to collect samples from the mutated local population, the pair discover she may have destruction rather than collection in mind, and must decide to which end of the food chain their loyalties lie... Shortlist of gameplay elements: -Devour enemies to powerup your character, weapons, and abilities! -Choose between diet-based classes, like the vegetarian Slaughter of the Soil or the blood-soaked Gorivore! -Chow down on everything - enemies, walls, even bullets! -Blast or eat your way through powerful enemies like Goo Behemoths and Mutant Hamster Squirrels! -Loot powerful weapons with fun modifiers, like Spicy Critter Cannons and Organic Meat-Seeking Missiles! -Craft exotic new weapons by wolfing down special types of characters and enemies! -Customize your character with synergistic skill trees that offer abilities like Napalm Vomit and Appetite for Destruction! -Eat enemies so you can burn calories to energize your skills and special attacks! -Earn action hero bandanas by fully completing each world! -Chew carefully - every enemy has its own nutritional information, and you body type will change based on the types of enemies you consume! -Gorge yourself on 40 stages of shooting, platforming, and eating! -Transform into your powerful Zombro form and smash enemies into bite-sized bits! -Use a highly advanced shield to protect yourself from oncoming fire or knock enemies away! -Play as either Darwincorp's most trusted mercenary Chewie, or his female counterpart Chewella -Gobble up an exciting plot with a ton of sidequests! -Native Linux and SteamOS Support!

    Just watched Midsommar the director's cut and I said 'Fucking white people' so many times that I annoyed the woman I went to see it with. I really liked it, big, moody, incredibly slow but always engaging. I really like the way things feel wrong from the get go. Also, the boyfriend is a character I loved to hate. So, basically everything tht Erkki hated about the film, I liked.
  14. Yeah, I have the same complaint as _bloomy_. This is also an issue with the previous episode, where everyone other than Rob sounded a little muffled, but Rowan's volume is especially uneven in this episode. He ranges from being almost as clear as Rob to being almost completely inaudible
  15. Brilliant podcast! You guys (and gal) completely sold me on trying out this game. Wait, the game is only on the Switch. You guys are terrible!

  17. Love the pod, but made an account here to ask if you can check the mic levels before episodes--I listen to TMA while commuting, and I couldn't hear Rowan half the time when in the subway, even as Rob before and Nicole after came through clearly. As for ONI, it hasn't yet clicked for me to play in the same way Rimworld has, though I do enjoy watching other people work through the issues with their colonies. For streamers who enjoy the problem-solving aspects of the game, the macabre charm Nicole mentioned makes it very watchable.
  19. Three Moves Ahead 478: Oxygen Not Included Nicole Clark joins Rowan and Rob to talk about Klei's Oxygen Not Included and its punishing model of offworld colonizaiton.Learn how everything that can go wrong does go wrong, and how well the game communicates excruciating detail about why your colony is dying.

  20. Free Music Resource - Over 1800 Tracks

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE: Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready: On my Funny 6 page: SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there. On my Puzzle Music 4 page: CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else? Enjoy!

    Ballers, Peaky Blinders and Power all come back on the same day I think! Nice.
  22. Just catching up with summer listening (!) but just needed to lodge this observation: one difficulty of historical grand strategy games is the fact that the important moments of history are discontinuous -- the moments when the rules themselves change. Sean came close to touching on this when discussing the need for different rules to apply to different factions, but the modeling challenge is how to provide the player with the experience of that break while maintaining a single perspective. The cautionary tale here is Spore, which attempted this writ huge and sadly failed. Literally created an account just to say this, big thanks for your great podcast even when I'm months backlogged
  23. Full Throttle Remastered

    I just played this for the first time and it was really disappointing. It feels very empty compared to most Lucasarts adventure games with few characters, repetitive settings, less objects and hot-spots to interact with, less lines of dialogue. I get that Ben is very taciturn and can't be a quip machine like Guybrush Threepwood but it feels like most attempts to interact with the world are met with the same 4 dismissive lines, which makes me not want to try anything. Even in situations where it makes no sense he'll fall back on the same lines, like when I was trying to use my bike chain on the semi-truck during the climax and he replied "I'm saving that chain for my friends on Mine Road." And Peter Chan's art is beautiful but scene layouts are often at the expense of clarity, like the magnet tower Thyroid mentioned or trying to figure out where the gas cap on the security force hovercar is supposed to be. Between the lack of humorous bespoke dialogue and hard to parse scenes (oh, that tiny little square in the trailer is a cabinet?) it feels like the game wants to make it hard for me to play. Same with some of the puzzle design: I get a steak and instantly know I'm going to use it to distract the junkyard dog but when I try to use it on a nearby car Ben informs me that the dog would eat the steak and then eat him. Ok, so throwing the steak into a car isn't the answer, so I bash my head against the scene for 15 minutes (luckily the remaster lets me skip the animation of Ben getting chased by the dog, no way I could watch that 15 times in a row without turning the game off) until I give up and look up a FAQ. Turns out I was supposed to throw the steak into a DIFFERENT car. That sort of thing happened half a dozen times, where I figured out what I was supposed to do (bunny minefield was another big one) and then spent a while trying to figure out the exact specific way the game wanted me to do it. It's clear the focus is story and I had heard great things about it, especially Mo and Ben's relationship, but even that was a little underwhelming: there's barely any meat there. They have a brief conversation when Mo finds him, don't really interact again until he finds the Vultures hangout, and then they pull off their motorcycle heist and there's a finale. I like that the sexual tension is ambiguous and that the game doesn't spell anything but they're both too unemotive for that ending to really mean much. There's a lot I liked (art, music, the more cinematic approach) but overall I found it missing most of what made me fall in love with Lucasarts adventure games.
  24. Marvel movies

    My fav Marvel movie is Thor: Ragnarok. Perfect blend of action, humor, quality character development, Zeppelin, tie-in with and set-up for other MCU films, and great visual/thematic style.
