  1. Dreadlands: new turn-based game!

    Looks right up my alley, I'll put it on the ol' wishlist.
  2. Frozen 2

    Same, OP, same.
  3. Life

    Mid-life crisis buddies high five I think it's a shame that this concept has mostly been treated as a source of comedy (getting fast cars and upgrading your wife) instead of talking about the deep existential dread and awareness of mortality that underlies it. At a certain point you (or at least I) realise that you've completely lost sight of what you're doing thing for. I'd tell you the solution if I had one. Anyway, fuck slack, yay forums.
  4. Compact view broken

    Hi, is it just me or is the compact view in the 'unread content' page no longer working? Paging @Tabacco
  5. [Dev Log] Dot Gobbler in Sock Justice

    Congratulations, very cool. I love the look.
  6. Steam store downish?

    Huh, I got a blank page, but refreshing fixed it. Interesting.
  7. Half-Life 3

    I'd gladly take a podcast over whatever their next game is :/
  8. Life

    A familliar thing to hear Erkki, unfortunately. It feels like the elasticity/capacity to deal with life's blows has been going out of things lately. Try to take some time off, you *really* don't want to get into burnout territory.
  9. Something True 2.4: Okaasan

    Easy enough to check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Tsukiyama
  10. Infinite Jest

    I think it's a testament to how good and moving some parts are that people recommend this book to anyone at all ever. I still love it.
  11. I mean, the game is much less fun than the soulslikes, so makes sense.
  12. Life

    Congrats! You made it
  13. The transcript link leads to a 404.
  14. Clickbait Games Journalism: Polygon vs Kotaku

    I don't like either site, but I've never been one to visit this kind of big generic gaming site. If I absolutely want to know what's up I''ll check bluesnews. The rest filters through anyway. Waypoint's of course great <3
  15. Photos of things

    Wowwwww, great!
  16. I thought it was fun to do nonlethally, I always enjoy having a limited toolset and finding the one weak point that lets you exploit them. The worst bit is when you leave someone snoozing and then they fall 10cm and die, or rats get them, and the game doesn't tell you. That's the only reason I didn't get ghost on the first game. I did get it on the later ones where there's an indicator that you fucked up somewhere.
  17. Life

    That's great to hear SAM, whew.
  18. Life

    Geez, that's horrific. Wishing you a lot of strength, hope it works out. Even if it requires up-front payment, are medical costs as insane there as in the US?
  19. Looking for TBS recommendations

    I think so, if there's a game like Auto Chess that gives you more deterministic insight in what the consequences of your positioning or character synergies would be.
  20. Looking for TBS recommendations

    I don't think the distinction is all that important to be honest, because there's a huge blurry area with stuff like setting up synergies between character builds in advance, choosing which direction each character engages from etc. Strategy's your high-level plan, at least as far as I loosely define it. Anyway going back to Clyde's original question, you can even have strategy games where you control zero characters, e.g. Majesty, Auto Chess, various tower defence games, Settlers...
  21. Looking for TBS recommendations

    How are you distinguishing your hypothetical from already-existing party-combat games like Divinity: Original Sin 2 for example, where each player controls one character? There's plenty coordination required between characters/players for good strategy/tactics there.
  22. Gosh guys, this looks aces. The trailer really sold me. A++!
  23. Half-Life 3

    Artifact VR relaunch
  24. Episode 464: Dota 2 Auto Chess

    Yessss I've been waiting for this. Such a weird game.
