  1. So Much Ireland (Help me plan my trip!)

    Hey all, late to the party mostly because I'm really bad at recommending touristy stuff. The Game of Thrones exhibit would be one to see, a few friends have loved it. I'd also recommend the Burren, Aillwee Caves and Giant's Causeway. I'd also recommend Blarney Castle (although fair warning it has been turned into a totally American-focused tourist trap, but it is still a lovely castle and grounds), and Carlingford, which is just a gorgeous town Also as SuperBiasedMan says don't eat or drink in Temple Bar, there are regularly shock 'This is what we are charging tourists for a pint' reciepts posted on twitter and the like If you are in Dublin and looking for food you could do worse than Crackbird on Dame St, or a few restaurants on South William St. Hope these help!
  2. Grand Thumb Auto retro PC edition

    That was a beautiful night gentlemen, we should do it again soon! Had no idea multiplayer GTA could be so much fun!
  3. Game Dev Talks/Lectures

    Here's a business-oriented talk from one Steve Gaynor, which I really liked. I think the recognition of 'tiers' of indie and the fact that following success has benefits that finding success doesn't is really interesting.
  4. Plug your shit

    Great work Jon! Have been doing artwork myself, colouring a pin-up by Will Sliney (Irish artist for Marvel comics): http://24.media.tumblr.com/2f98438bc8d080745f8c800adc70e034/tumblr_n00t07ZuRj1r34kceo1_1280.jpg
  5. The Idle Thumbs 10th Anniversary Committee

    I only just saw the unveiling when Jon tweeted it, then saw this thread, amazing stuff, great work. I would've offered to contribute, was blown away by the amazing work!
  6. Life

    Wonderful work tegan! My New Year's resolution is to sort out my life. Would love more time to draw and maybe make a game (I've made stuff with Unity before, but have always felt I'd pour a lot of energy into it and then there'd be no reaction).
  7. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    Duplicate dailies? The possibilities... the data scientist in me is now assuming Derek Yu is performing some sort of elabourate social mouse-in-maze experiment. The past few attempts I've had have been barely worth posting, but this was just crazy enough, Spelunky still surprises me (watch out for a very near spike miss!)
  8. Spelunky!

    While every else talks about ghosting and other elite activities I return to my daily runs with a bang. Not a good bang.
  9. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    I'm still working on handling some more basic situations!

    holy crap that's the worst insta-death I've seen in a while, bad luck
  11. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    Being on GMT and playing late at night means I usually post a day late! I won't lie, I saw Korax's impressive bomb toss and tried my hand at it, turns out it's super hard.

    Haha, have been considering recording audio, will have to look into it. There was some light cursing at points I think I've been lucky once and found the Black Market, just once. Bizarrely good feeling.

    [edit: for some reason my post was submitted twice]
  14. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    "The Benny Hill switch" is my new favourite label. Yesterday's run, got further than expected (maybe a record?) but ended it all bashing the controller shouting "getupgetupgetupgetup". Fecking stuns!

    Just amazing, I love it! I really just shocked myself with this one, so embarrassing:
