  1. It seemed like Hawk was expecting her to say that, too. He pauses a second before picking up the phone like he's waiting for Lucy to finish talking.

    I believe what they specifically said was "it's like Skyrim with beans". And based on how they've talked about Skyrim on Video Games Hot Dog, I suspect that the idea that the side quest would be most interesting part of the game was what they were intending to suggest. I want to second this recommendation, this is absolutely worth listening to. It's really interesting to hear about the development process, since it seems so different than other games at this scale. They're also just entertaining people to listen to.
  3. This was not the Steven Universe crossover I was expecting.
  4. The threat of Big Dog

    You can't just post a link to that article and not mention the completely outrageous video it contains.

    I'm a couple hours in and I have to say I'm impressed with this one. It's the kind of game that makes it easy to overlook it's flaws. On paper, the fact that the combat is so haphazard should be a big deal in a game with this much combat, but it hasn't led to be being bored or annoyed at any point so it feels like a pointless criticism. I think the fact that the writing is so consistently good is what makes this game work, every side area is worth exploring because you know something amusing will happen even if you don't get anything useful from it..Even the combat has some decent visual gags, like how Doc Alice heals you by dumping a bad of medical supplies on your head. My favorite joke so far is when you ask the circus vendor for a vegetarian option: "this is a carnival, not a herbival"
  6. I think it's plausible that Diane has just never met Dougie, given that she doesn't like Janey very much.
  7. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    The thing is, I feel like a lot of this is only relevant if you're better at the game than I am. I understand the theoretical advantage of using a charger, but if you aren't good at reliably splatting people with it, it does very little because that's all it's good for. If you're bad at reliably splatting people with the splattershot it's fine because you're only trying to do that when you have a good opportunity and you can do other stuff the rest of the time. The reason I don't feel that way in ranked is because if I'm bad at platting people with the blaster there's less of an opportunity cost, and I'd be doing just as bad with any other weapon anyway.
  8. That pie is making me uncomfortable. This is great though
  9. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    I kinda feel the opposite of this. Whenever I play turf war I feel like I'm wasting time if I'm not inking ground, and so many of the weapons don't spread ink very quickly. If you want to use a weapon that's tuned for splatting like a blaster or charger it feels like you have to be really good at it or you just drag the team down. In ranked the objective takes up less of the map, but I feel like I can use whatever weapon and even if I'm not doing that well I can do something with it that visible helps the team.
  10. Artifact - The Dota Card Game

    When I first heard about this I for some reason thought it was a physical card game and convinced myself it might actually be pretty cool. Then I realized it was obviously going to be a hearthstone and got much less excited. Then I heard Brad Muir was making it so now I'm cautiously optimistic again.
  11. I had been assuming Audrey didn't live in Twin Peaks anymore, and that was why nobody ever mentioned her in situations where it would clearly make sense to mention her. Then Audrey showed up talks about going to the Road House so I guess that's what I get for making assumptions about anything in this show. I don't think she's in a coma, but there's clearly something weird going on here. Also, I'm a little surprised people are so down on this episode. It wasn't my favorite episode, certainly, but it wasn't categorically worse than anything else we've seen.
  12. I haven't played this but I do want to say, "Behold the Kickmen" is one of the best titles for a video game I've ever seen.
  13. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Cool, I'm not very good at this game anyway so I'll just keep being fly.
  14. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Am I correct in assuming that the effects are minor enough that I can ignore them and wear the gear I think looks the coolest and be basically fine?
  15. This was my interpretation of it as well. The way Gordon and Albert were talking about it sounded like they didn't quite understand what they were seeing either. A man faded into nonexistence in front of them and their reaction was "I think I saw somebody".
