  1. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    I used to be pretty active here, tonight I logged in for the first time in over a year on a whim. I miss being here, this forum was really important to me during my mid 20s when I was going through some stuff and helped rekindle my interest in gaming.
  2. How to back up your game projects with GIT

    I really like GitKraken, maybe not as fully featured as SourceTree but a lot easier to use.
  3. That's how I eventually got out of my predicament, found some resin and happened to be carrying a bit of copper. I really like that resource distribution varies wildly between planets, the one I got stuck on was lousy with rarities like lithium and titanium but almost completely devoid of the basics.
  4. Stuck on garbage planet, can't find fuel. Gazing longingly at precious home planet.
  5. No Man's Sky

    It feels like I'm on a walk in the woods but my shoelaces come untied every five minutes, I don't want to mine anything ever again.
  6. The main difference is that in Stellaris you start with a single planet and slowly expand, in their earlier games you got dropped into a complex preexisting situation.
  7. So I just discovered that DDR4 is a thing. Will I regret buying a DDR3 motherboard in 2016?
  8. Firewatch Spoiler Thread | Henry Two Hats

    Thanks! I'm curious about the significance of Jane Eyre, I'm pretty sure it's the only real book in the game. Also, someone should write Borges-style fake reviews of the fake books.
  9. Firewatch Spoiler Thread | Henry Two Hats

    I couldn't find the turtle. Very sad.
  10. Just finished the game, I liked it a lot. One thing that bothered me way more than it should was that no one at Campo Santo seems to have pondered the logistics of carrying an entire case of beer into the wilderness, all that extra weight would be brutal.
  11. XCOM 2

    Spenny just got mind controlled and pulled a suicide grenade. I didn't even know they could do that.
  12. XCOM 2

    Are there any negative consequences of delaying the black site mission besides the avatar bar increasing? I decided to wait until I had magnetic weapons, finished it without a scratch.
  13. XCOM 2

    I'm so angry.
  14. XCOM 2

    The aliens have it too, I get hit by impossible overwatch shots constantly. It's really sad to see that many of the problems that would occasionally make the previous game so frustrating are still present.
  15. XCOM 2

    Using the thumbs soldier list provided by Wooben might have been a mistake. Jennegatron was my best ranger until she got mind controlled and killed two of her squadmates. Why do you hate humanity?
  16. XCOM 2

    It's the highest difficulty level, for some reason they renamed them. I don't know if it's actually more difficult or if I'm just being punished for trying to play it like EW.
  17. XCOM 2

    Legendary is no joke, I have 300+ hours in the previous game and lost two people on my first mission. I'm so happy.
  18. Half-Life 3

    HTC Vive > vive la revolution > liberty, equality, fraternity > liberty > freedom > Freeman?!?
  19. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R games with their insanely ambitious AI are basically what you're describing at around 1:03.
  20. Paradox buys White Wolf I really hope they're not just trolling.
  21. Battlezone is definitely in my top ten. My favorite part was the sense of isolation and vulnerability after getting ejected from an exploding tank and having to walk back to base or wait for a pickup. I replayed a good chunk of it last year, looks surprisingly good at 2560x1440.
  22. SOMA

    I really didn't expect the story to hit me like it did, I haven't experienced an ending that devastating since Brothers.
  23. Unreal Engine 4 Thread

    I recall something about Chrome not playing nice with local files, have you tried running from a server?
  24. Best Robinsonade games?

    The Forest is probably the least incomplete early access survival thing. It alternates between long periods of peaceful exploration and hectic battles with mutated cannibals in a really effective way.
