  1. From today's patch notes: "You may now honk a car horn when sitting in the driver's seat with Left Mouse Click."
  2. Looking for fellow scrubs to help me friendzone some boys in PunkBag. Never grouped before, but I have a decent headset, so hit me up!
  3. Just had a match where I was getting shot at while driving a boat. Made a too-sharp turn and beached it. Hid behind the boat for cover, and my antagonist comes racing at me unloading a shotgun. I also had a shotgun, so we strafed and shot and hid around the boat for a while. Eventually, I got the idea to throw a grenade. It landed too far behind him, but he didn't know that. He came around the right side, hoping to take cover from the shrapnel, and I blasted him with my S12K. Felt pretty clever about that.
  4. Just had the best match. Coming down a hill, I hear gunfire to my right. I investigate. Crest a ridge, and there's a jeep coming right at me up the hill. I pull out my S12K and put a round in the driver's side. Not dead, the dude swerves around me and goes down another part of the hill. Slows, stops. I run up, about to blast him as he comes out of the driver's side, but I guess he realized what I was doing because he speeds off again. Then, there are shots peppering the dirt around my feet, coming from roughly behind me. I hoof it over to a tree and take a look. There's another guy who I guess was chasing the jeep guy, except this guy's got a dune buggy that he's hiding behind, shooting at me. I return fire with a SCAR-L, hit a couple of times, the buggy starts rolling down the hill. He runs to another tree, and I'm not letting up. He pops from the left, I shoot left. He goes right, I shoot right. Goes on for a little while. My heart, pounding, is in my throat. I'm half worrying that jeep guy is going to come back and run me over while I'm dealing with this long range firefight. Then, calm as anything, buggy guy steps out and puts one bullet between my eyes. I jumped out of my seat. I wanted to high-five him. I spent a clip and a half playing whack-a-mole with this guy and he goes and pulls a Deer Hunter? Ugh. This game is good. How am I going to sleep now?
  5. Something True 4: Ruska Pravda

    Good show, guys. Can't wait for the next one.
  6. Thanks, Rubixs. The comedic timing is unbelievably good. Also, Problem, the ownage I was thinking of was the crack about "someone needs to lead the baby gamer through the world by his tiny baby hand" when Nick missed the pathway up the hill after the bonfire outside of the locked door. It wasn't overly harsh, it was just well timed and hilarious.
  7. Solid ownage by ProblemMachine on the April 9th stream. Also a quality stream. Nick smashed through DLC1 all while being hilarious and indignant. Someone oughtta make a mashup of all the times that bird fell on his head. I haven't laughed so hard in a dog's age.
  8. Ditto. Not really into Dark Souls 2 but hopefully he beats it in one magnificent stream next time.
  9. Nick talking about how the tower runs through a bunch of areas reminded me of something he might appreciate now:
  10. I think one thing Nick sorta glossed over was the chat empathy. Yeah they talk shit sometimes, but we were all where he was at one point. Most of us stayed up waaaaaaaayyyy too late to beat that boss and failed and woke up and did it the next day or the day after. It was hard to watch but it was also super gratifying to be there with somebody who went through the same stupid bullshit I did. I said it during the stream, but I want to repeat here that watching Nick's Dark Souls streams has been one of the highlights of the year for me. Really, really appreciate them.
  11. Just watched it. I'm so happy right now.
  12. Idle Thumbs Streams

  13. The only way this ends is with Nick playing all the way through Dark Souls 2 after DaS1. And then we will have the best streaming content on the internet.
  14. The Next President

    I think the takeaway is that the math is different for Democrats. Repubs can run anyone and they'll win because their people show up. Dems need Rockstars if we expect people in Ohio and Florida to get out of the house on Nov 8. Right now it's all about 2018, but in 2020 we need to run Beyonce or Bruce Springsteen.
  15. The Next President

    Okay this sucks. But don't give in to despair. We can figure this out. Just need to process it first. Most importantly, we need to support our women and LGBT and african-american and immigrant and minority friends as much and as frequently as possible. Create inclusive spaces and art. Practice empathy. Then go out in 2018 and vote.
  16. The Big VR Thread

    Got the PSVR, had my girlfriend over to try it, we had a blast. That saloon game in Playroom is fun as hell. I'm personally really into Driveclub VR though. The lighting effects while driving at night are incredibly immersive.
  17. Warcraft Adventures (old old stuff)

    I'm pulling a Kel'Thuzad to let everyone know you can go download and play Warcraft Adventures now. Anyone tried this yet?
  18. General Video Game Deals Thread

    Urggghh dunno if I should get this. Just started making stuff with Unity and I don't wanna get sidetracked.
  19. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    Failed pretty hard at this one within about five minutes. Not my best showing. Gunned down in the attic. The rewards for these any good?
  20. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    Just finished the Thailand episode. I know its a core part of the game, but, man, I hate changing out of 47's suit.
  21. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    Killed The Broker. Got the Sheik disquise. Standing right next to the safe with the key in my hand, waiting for the guard to turn around. GPU crash. Who needs a drink.
  22. Necropolis

    Update today added better descriptions and more varied areas. Also changed RNG on monster and item generation so good things can pop up earlier in the game. I died at level 6 to some giant fly looking thing with a staff and a sword. Got some sweet new tunic colors though. Gotta say, I wish the levels were a little shorter. Running through the swamp becomes tedious pretty quickly.
  23. Intoxicated:

    Sean is handsome and I miss him on the podcast.
  24. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    Some of his lectures on the internet are pretty relevant to that interview. There's one where he talks about game design respecting the player's time and intelligence that I really like.
