  1. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Ah ha! Another Houstonite. Our numbers are growing.
  2. Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2014

    I watched the pitch videos with my kids and gave them each a pick. One thing I love is seeing their reactions to the games through the lenses of their own gaming experiences, which is increasingly unique to them and separate from my own. Anyway, our picks were: - Dear Leader (Me. I'm a sucker for Soviet Russia aesthetics) - Jet Girl & Ghost Dog (My 13 year old son. He literally said "Why does this remind me of Earthbound?" seconds before Earthbound was mentioned as an inspiration.) - Dum Sim (My 9 year old daughter. Her comments were "It's made by a girl!" and "I sounds like Diner Dash and The Sims!") Our consensus pick for the Pendleton pitches was Little Pink Best Buds, which I was outvoted on (I liked Cupid, You Fat Little Scamp). Other cool / funny comments from them while we were watching: - "Wooo, it's a mystery!" - Mnemonic - "This feels like Slender." - Fathomless - (In unison) "Too scary." - What Could Go Wrong - "Are they ripping off Minecraft?" - My son, anytime a pitch mentioned crafting - "Wooo, CATS!" - Cat in a Box - "BAD GOLF 2! BAD GOLF 2!"
  3. Neptune's Bountiful Pride: The Sequel

    I'm down. Haven't been properly stabbed in the back lately.
  4. Feminism

    Yes, that's right. I'm a sexy chick. Don't be jealous. I'll stop derailing now.

  6. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    Sometime in April, I believe.
  7. Games giveaway

    Wooo, I'd be interested in that ToME code if you haven't given it away yet.
  8. The threat of Big Dog

    Seriously. If I've learned one thing from Kim Cattrall, it's that mannequin's are people too.
  9. General Video Game Deals Thread

    Wooo, Puppeteer at 7 bucks is a lock for me. Has anyone tried Rain? Was it any good?
  10. Return of the Steam Box!

  11. Help identifying song from a video

    If only there was a magic engine that took text as input and returned relevant results. <3
  12. I Had A Random Thought...

    I do the same on my work e-mails, but I chop out the massive amount of marketing stupidity and leave it as just "Sent from my phone".
  13. Well, he *IS* pretty damn good at sharing his opinions. :-P
  14. Tales of Maj'Eyal

    I've fooled around with it a few times and it's a good game, especially considering it's basically been a hobby project for so long. I think it's probably the best available "traditional" roguelike. They also recently got a commercial version greenlit on Steam that has the normal expected features like achievements, cloud syncing, etc. Worth picking up if you want to support the project.
  15. It's still 2013 in Texas. Has Rockstar fixed their crappy PC ports in the future of 2014?
  16. Intoxicated:

    Sweet tea and peach schnapps is amazing! Drink gallons of it and thank me later.
  17. Games giveaway

    If you're not a robot, then logically you must be a witch.
  18. Movie/TV recommendations

    I was totally thinking about this the other day. I'm also re-watching The X-Files and a lot of it seems so cheesy and implausible now. Have I just gotten more knowledgeable / skeptical or has society in general? Conspiracy theories seem a lot harder to buy when they can be easily debunked on Wikipedia within a few minutes. Also, after the 9/11 attacks, it's a lot harder for me to believe that the US Government has the competence to cover up the existence of aliens. Ultimately, I think it's best when you approach the same way you might approach Lovecraft story or some other piece of classic sci-fi. You have to just allow yourself to adjust your brain into the mode of the time and take it for what it is. Also part of the draw for me is it walks my memory back to being a teenager in the 90's.
  19. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    Man, after watching the latest episode of the backer video, I am so completely excited for this game. All the art, animation, and audio is just crafted so well. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Also, Chris with a beard looks like the lumberjack from the test animation sequences. :-P
  20. Might as well throw mine into the ring too:
  21. General Video Game Deals Thread

    Legend of Dungeon is only $1.49 right now in the current flash sale. It's best described as a roguelike beat 'em up. I've had a ton of fun with it so far. Has support for local co-op too if you've got your PC hooked up to a TV.
  22. General Video Game Deals Thread

    I don't think it's just you. The controls always made me feel like I was a step behind when I played it on my phone. The best results I've had with is playing it on my tablet propped up at an angle, but even then it's not great. Maybe the Leap Motion version on PC works better? I don't know anyone with a Leap to confirm.
  23. Life

    It's a lamesauce question, but only because it doesn't really introduce pucker factor. I like to ask what they consider to be their single biggest mistake they've made in their career and what they've learned from it. The best people always give the most awesome stories as answers to this question. Also, they usually end in some variant of "and that's how we lost all that data."
  24. Video game music renditions

    I took my son when it came to Houston last year. He plays viola in the school orchestra and I used to play violin, so it was definitely cool to get our combined love of symphonic music and video games. :-)
