  1. My Boy's a Box! Damn You, a Box! (BOXBOY!)

    I really like this game and hope Nintendo keeps making these small experiences.
  2. General Video Game Deals Thread

    This would be a good opportunity to play/replay the original Katamari Damacy for a dollar. A lot of the other games that also came out on PC I already ave on Steam.
  3. Games giveaway

    It's doubtful that people here don't already have this, but just in case here's a gift for the forum for my favorite podcast: VVVVVVVVVV (?) LLZ0R-IXEVA-9Y7NL
  4. Nintendo 3DS

    I used all my club Nintendo points on 3ds games. Mario's picross, Super Mario Land 2, and the Dillon sequel. Never played the first Dillon, people say the follow up improves the formula. Love that hammer Mario stars in Picross
  5. Designer Notes 3: Frank Lantz

    Great interview. I want to buy Drop7 for my Android phone, but I can't find it on Google Play. A web search reveals a bunch of sketchy looking sites claiming to offer the apk for cree. Any insight Frank?
  6. Nintendo 3DS

    I'm currently playing through Mario vs Donkey Kong from the ambassador program, and it's just a wonderful little portable game. I had a tense moment where I wondered if my save game would carry over after my system transfer.
  7. Nintendo 3DS

    My local indie game store could only give me 60-80 for my XL, so I'm braving the Evil Empire of GameStop. They were sold out of preorders, so I'm getting one sent in the mail. I do the transfer at home and then I can come back in for the 100 dollar credit. Though I'm going to send out am exploratory craigslist post to try and sell for a bit more. ... Any Seattle thumbs in the market for an excellent condition XL? PS: I would not upsell a thumb. Straight 100.
  8. An email I sent to Giantbomb

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to manually add podcasts in Android Pocket Casts. EDIT: Paste into the search box, FYI.
  9. This has been the least shameful way to get hints. (I used it once) Hope I can complete it this time with my adult brain. Fifteen years ago I stalled out in year two.
  10. Where in the World - Idle Thumbs Map

    Seattle, represent! The top of my building is very dirty. Thanks map!
  11. After trying unsuccessfully several times to get into LoL and never even playing Dota once I received my invite to HotS. I love it. It plays so well. Currently steamrolling through my practice rounds. graddy #1782 Are people still playing this?
  12. Elite: Dangerous (Kickstarter)

    I'm currently downloading. Hoping to play with some Thumbs. Happy that I've avoided almost all media for this game. Dr. Wookie, will I be ok with just M+KB and/or a 360 controller? What is everyone else using?
  13. Tacoma from Fullbright

    As a fellow Seatle thumb, who used to occasionally work in Gig Harbor over the bridge, I have to run-on say that looks terrifying.
  14. Tacoma from Fullbright

    Interesting that the game was initially going to take place in the actual Tacoma, Washington. I work there sometimes! I trust Steve and co. to have an interesting spin on the at first glance normal sci fi setting. Excited for the game. 2016 seems far away.
  15. Games giveaway

    I'm listening to old trine idle thumbs about trine. Trine. Anyone have a key for that by chance?
  16. Wizaaaaaards!!

    Are you on Orcas Island in the Puget Sound? That looks familiar.
  17. The response of the general iOS public to the $2 Monument Valley expansion has been disgusting. I like the platform, don't drive all the good developers away please.
  18. The Yawhg

    My middle aged female friend REALLY enjoyed this game, as someone who "doesn't like video games." She wouldn't stop talking about how cool it was. Its made me consider more the idea of collaborative local video game experiences. Can anyone think of other games similar to this?
  19. Intoxicated:

    We had a more diverse showing at our recent Manhattan Club (we have custom cocktail glasses, be jealous) and I made a negroni for our gracious host. She repeatedly said "This tastes like cough syrup." Oh well. My mistake initially was thinking you can add as much or even close to the amount of campari compared to other ingredients like vermouth or the base liquor. A little goes a long way when making up a cocktail.
  20. Chris, in my tired mind that morning, the less weird thing was to say hi from behind you compared to your seeing my Idle Thumbs shirt as I walked on the bus. Anyway. I've always felt a bit strange meeting people who I've heard a lot (podcasts, video) but who obviously don't knoe me. The only reason I felt OK asking Tim Schafer to autograph my Grim Fandango poster was that someone else already asked right before. It was really fun to see your dynamics live on stage. It was fantastic seeing and not just hearing everyone getting exasperated at Jake.
  21. PAX Prime 2014

    Oh good Lord, thumbs panel on Sunday. I was going to skip that day. Now I need to buy a Saturday and a Sunday pass from scalpers
  22. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    I don't think you have to take their opinion as gospel. Many people, including myself, think it's just fantastic. Even at the end where I was dying at a much greater frequency it wasn't too bad. Just enough of a taste of the old games.
  23. Quit teasing, show your stuff.
  24. graddy is my tag. PC is now my primary facing platform so the possibility of multiplayer with some of my 500+ steam library is certainly there.
