  1. Hyper Light Drifter

    So one thing I picked up from watching speedruns is to constantly be hitting the starter gun and sword at the same time as you're railing on the bosses. Haven't played the game in a few months, so maybe they've changed some things. All the same, I hope that helps?
  2. E3 2016: Content Experience

    I didn't see anything on a release estimate for Zelda...are they going to try to hit the holiday time 2016?
  3. E3 2016: Content Experience

    Pretty excited about the new zelda game seems like they put the ingredients of a lot of other genre's into it. Things that come to mind immediately include monster hunter, dark souls, and perhaps from the best zelda game: okami.
  4. This. I tried to do the whole perfect breeding thing back in college because apparently I made more time on my hands than I honestly should have. That said, it was a HUGE time-sink, and it made me so jaded for the series. Depending on if that mid-level complexity is somehow in there (I have no clue what they could come up with) this could be the first game I buy in a _while_. The idea that the next level of engagement in the game is to keep track of invisible stats is just too tedious to me. [edit: typo]
  5. Civilisation 6

    Agreed. I think one of the best UI mods isn't even on steam at the moment, but that's probably far more integral to the civ experience than any of this graphics discussion is.
  6. Civilisation 6

    I feel like we're hearing the same arguments about the graphics (off two screenshots, mind you) as we did about Wind Waker... at least that's the tone I'm reading on all the reddit posts about it. Not to mention that if 6 is as mod-able as 5, then there's going to be shaders and texture mods that can be applied, right?
  7. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Well apparently there was just a 256GB micro SD card brought to market. again, we have no clue what the storage capacity demands would be like for NX games, but if the plan is for a cartridge market, and solid state prices still dropping, this actually may turn out alright? Also, if they're able to get it into the form factor of DS/3DS cartridges, you could have tons of back-catalog to draw from for the system... likelihood of that can't be too high though....maybe?
  8. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    So there was some news on this in the recent past that it might be cartridge loading? Does that make any sense? I don't know how large of SD-card, or SD-card-like technology can get to be cost effective for such a plan... I mean games are just getting larger and larger with every iteration, and last time I bought a small 128 USB it was at least $50. considering current costs of games, I feel like this could have some implications: either moving to a solid-state storage system will make for dropping prices in those raw materials, and/or our games are going to get more expensive at release? any thoughts?
  9. The real answer for cutest per generation is clearly: ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, and ditto. /s
  10. Playscape: Los Angeles - Alx Preston

    Can you post some of the links to the reviews you and Alx were mentioning? You briefly mentioned one where you liked the style of the review, and I was curious to see it.
  11. The Last Guardian

    not a bad starting point, though. I thought it was a thoroughly charming movie. But development for TLG started in 2007 (according to wiki), and the movie came out in 2010. The book the movie is based on came out in 2003; but I feel like this idea was already in the zeitgeist of popular culture. When I think of popular portrayal of training a wild animal, I think of Dances with Wolves ( Edit: Actually if you want to talk about training of the wild, I believe Gilgamesh was the first figure to tame a wild beast-man (Enkidu)

  13. I really like how the first gameplay demo looks like he's messing up as much as I do while playing any of the latter games. I'm curious to know what you all thought of Black Flag's 100% tasks, but I definitely couldn't get into 100% these games after AC2...just became too tedious to go through a mission without taking a single hit or some other nonsense.
  14. Nintendo 3DS

    A bit off topic, but DS related. This modification someone did just became a big thing on reddit. To make this comment more relevant ~ how are you all liking the virtual emulation on the 3DS? The idea of a cartridge-less future seems both scary and convenient, so I'm not sure what to make of it since I haven't played mobile stuff in a while...
  15. Diablo III BattleTags

    Hey, wanted to pop in here since I seem to be the most active person in the Idle Thumbs guys can jump into a game whenever. I'm usually just messing around trying to find more interesting things.
  16. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    Thank you for this. I had totally forgotten about that song. Is there a collection of Remo's songs from the show anywhere? On a note back to Broken Age: I may have missed some of the dialog, but did they ever explain the..
  17. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    I loved the story. It was ridiculously charming, and the puzzles were satisfyingly difficult. Only thing I lament is that when looking at reviews of this game on iOS, I remembered why I don't like looking at customer reviews...
  18. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hello ~ long time listener who started catching up on the new episodes. Came onto the forums to checkout stuff about the minecraft server -- went on earlier and no one was on though! Anyway, came on to check out stuff, maybe comment on a few things. Stuff and such.
