  1. Firewatch Spoiler Thread | Henry Two Hats

    i think the subversion of the players agency on the mind and intention of others is pretty central to firewatch. sorry but delilah just doesn't like u in that way
  2. No Man's Sky

    Yeah there is the obvious analogue between first person and VR but honestly I think there is a lot of potential for neato 3rd person and birds eye view stuff. The idea of turn based 4x games where the presentation is like a polished 3D game board or even something like the skyrim map which is crappy and hard to use in 2D suddenly is like a functional landscape jewel box. I think there will be hoardes of VR games that play the same dumb tricks as 3D movies with crap flying in your face all the time but in my mind the best uses of it will be more subtle leveraging of depth to provide different depictions of scale that are pretty hard to represent in 2D.

  7. The games that made you buy the system

    I think I posted this in another thread but I bought the xbox 360 just to play the Skate games and those are still the only games I play on that console. If they come out with a Skate for xbox one I will unfortunately have to buy that system also.
  8. im on day 3 and managed to sneak through some invisible walls. now i enter the true wilderness edit: aah woah there's supply caches out here. conflicted between cracking them open to see how much i can tear this game up and not spoiling myself
  9. Tfw your family is diabetic because you work 3 jobs to support them and only have the time and money to pick up McDonald's in between shifts and then you lose one of your jobs to a pair of robotic arms

  11. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    In other words you and a friend could explore an abandoned island for the same price that you could get a tool enabling the exploration of the urban jungle through sick grinds, slides, and vert pipe stunts. Does that seem fair? Personally I'm only willing to exchange 30 cigarettes and 11.25 gallons of water for an indie video game

    You can't but you could have one skateboard for the value of two Jonathan Blow's The Witness
