  1. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I don't want to alarm anyone, but man Mario Kart 8 Delux is pretty great. I wish the online features were better, it stinks trying to coordinate groups of friends together currently. Hopefully once Nintendo's online system comes online that will be a little bit easier.
  2. Plug your shit

    Sweet, congrats! I'll definitely check this out.
  3. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    i'm in a similar boat! Not sure how much local multiplayer I'd actual play. I do say though, I wish it had come out a week earlier because i was watching my 5 year old niece last weekend and she has a game on her leap pad that is like a edu-tainment version of Mario Kart, i think she would have gotten a kick out of playing some co-op.
  4. Backlog Busters

    It's been freeing being honest with myself, I'm probably not going to play all of these humble bundle games. I don't have very much time to game currently and I think at some point the sheer volume of my backlog was putting me off of starting something. Being able to free myself from the cruft that has built up has been freeing, hah.

  7. So I picked this up and put and hour or so in this morning and actually took home 1st place, woo! I'd like to check out the squad stuff, it seems neat. I miss the DayZ stuff we used to do here at Idle Thumbs!
  8. Such a "good" comment hah. Also, never Jiffs. So, if we are being honest - my knee jerk reaction is to want something as close to the original as possible. It is literally just "Hey I like that thing, make that thing!". When I think about it though I know that is totally dumb, and I think you (and Jake) are right - it's totaly boring.
  9. Weird, which comments are bumming you out? Maybe they've been removed already, as I only really see positive comments atm?
  10. Rocket League

    Any of the thumbs RL players also Giant Bomb premium members? it looks like they are running a tournament. Currently looking for a 3rd player on Steam: https://www.giantbomb.com/rocket-league/3030-34407/forums/2017-rocket-league-standard-ass-giant-bomb-tournam-1809223/#76
  11. Photos of things

    Just an Easter portrait of my niece, testing out a new (to me) 35mm lens.
  12. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    First try came out decently! Crumb is not perfect, but at least it gives me an excuse to try again, hah.
  13. Alright, you've twisted my arm. This seems like my kind of non-sense!
  14. Fake Games

    They're the reason handing over the ability to declare the authenticity of a game to the userbase is not a great idea - Crawl is killer!
  15. Life

    Congrats Roderick! Let us now when there is an English translation!
  16. Fake Games

    And keep in mind this the game was stolen from an Unreal Engine tutorial, repackaged, slightly modified and then sold for actual money. I don't know if full democratizing curation to the userbase is a great idea (I think Clyde's example of Depression Quest is a great example of a game that could be punished because of certain extremist groups), but there is obviously a lot of malicious garbage out there on steam as well which needs to be addressed.
  17. Fake Games

    Steamspy is interesting, was able to quickly find one of these scam games: https://steamspy.com/app/344040 335,000 sales at $4, the dev team is walking away with 1 million dollars with stolen assets by a guy who is a known scammer, this is from his other game:
  18. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    I'm going to try this!
  19. Idle Cook Club - Veggie Feeds-me: My Body Is Ready

    Tycho, those all look fantastic - great job!
  20. Fake Games

    Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? This is a joke
  21. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Yeah, my switch is slight cupped on one side, hope it doesn't turn to to be an issue! My left joycon had some issues at first but yeah, like Twig mine seems to have just went away on its own?
  22. Other podcasts

    So I took this recommendation to heart and got through 5 episodes of this on Sunday with my SO as we had a lot of driving to do - such a good show! Both my wife and I felt the same way about this spoiler.
  23. Yeah, I wonder if its explained in more detail later on, I would assume its one of those "he paid off the cops to hide the real story" things - but yeah the tone of that stuff felt a bit weird.

    I'd like to recommend a great 2 player boardgame, 7 Wonders: Duel. It is a two player card based strategy game that can be setup and played in ~45 minutes. It really does a good job handling the "feeling" of BEING two adjacent cities competing over a period of time. There isn't a lot of direct interaction, but there is heavy competition for resources which makes the turn-to-turn strategy pretty interesting. There is a bit of esoteric iconography, but my wife (who isn't really a huge board game fan) was able to pick it up in about 5-10 minutes using the included reference card, and then she destroyed me with her military.
  25. I watched a bit og the Giantbomb quicklook and man, that game definitely as style! Hope Amazon actually ships me my copy, still pending, boo.
