  1. I wonder if No Man's Sky has started a trend in games for (in want of a better word) esoteric titles.
  2. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    If either of you aren't familiar with Miles Davis - Kind of Blue then you need to check it out. I don't know much jazz either but I know it's great
  3. Wizard Jam 2016 Team Building Thread

    I'm an artist, mostly 3D environments but may be able to help with other stuff (I won't be much help if you want character rigging/animation though). Best way to contact me is probably on slack: @brett_e Timezone: BST(GMT +1) Sample work
  4. anime

    I just finished Erased, I thought it was pretty good although most of the last episode a little far-fetched.

    Post Rock PSA: There's new albums from both Explosions In The Sky and Hammock.

  7. I might have to come back and watch that after I've played the game. In other news Austin mentioned a piece he'd like to write about the philosophical points The Witness is making and I want to read it real bad but sounds like he might not have time to do it

    Ah ok, thanks Biggy.
  9. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    I'm almost at the end of this game now, I just have the treehouse and jungle left of the main puzzles. I really dislike the audio based ones so I'll probably skip those. I've done everything I can find in the treehouse except
  10. In big picture mode, got to settings > display > resolution > target monitor.
  11. I just got a steam controller and I wasn't too keen on using big picture but I realised you can set it to use specific screens which is real helpful for me as I have my PC near my TV but still want to use it as a PC on my monitor, so I just hit the steam button on the controller when I want to play games and all games I launch through steam will default to the TV. It doesn't sound like a big deal but I found positioning windows perfectly on the TV a pain.

    I'm looking forward to the new Daughter album, out on Friday.
  13. According to the i7 920 is about 5000 something number and the i5 2500k is about 6000 something number so yours is a whole 20% better I was ok with waiting for Fallout 4 but with X-Com and Tomb Raider coming out I may have to upgrade a bit sooner, I'm thinking a new card this month and a new CPU (and thus new motherboard) next month. I'm leaning towards the R9 390 and probably a high end i5.
  14. Psychonauts 2

    The only reason I'm apprehensive about this game is that Psychonauts 1 is such a unique weird thing, it'll be very hard to follow that up. The mini doc episodes about its development show how unusual it is and now that Double Fine have matured I can't help but wonder how it'll affect the sequel. Which isn't to say that I think they need to crunch like hell and almost go under but the first game was (for better or worse) undoubtedly a product of a troubled development/inexperienced team. How much of what makes the game special is tied to that is probably impossible to say though, they did highlight one example in the docs, the little hidden areas that they spent a disproportionate amount of time on when very few people would ever see them. Oh well, unlike a lot of the internet I actually have quite a bit of faith in Doublefine, things seldom go to plan but they always deliver something different and entertaining.
  15. I'm not sure, probably ones from the 'Excellent' section of this site because I don't tend to keep up to date with this stuff:
