  1. I used the after credits cheats and saw all the videos. I hadn't missed anything big!

    This game and thread was very fun to read through. Listening to the thumbs and VG hot dogs talk about it tomorrow, stoked.

  2. You've either missed or ignored all the stuff about the people who raised them.


    Ack, yea I figured that out, except I never

    figured out if Eve poisoned her parents with the mushrooms.


    I was mainly wondering if I'd missed anything after my most recent discovered event.

  3. The wife and I have played this for over 2 hours now and have come to the point of long stretches of not finding anything new. There are more videos to find (we are ~80% through) but am unsure there is anything else "important" left. I want to listen to all these discussion podcasts about the game!  :)
    I'm going to spoiler what I've figured out and someone tell me if I have anything big left?


    They are twins separated at birth. Miscarriage. Eve is sexy and Hannah is shy. Eve has a wig that she uses to have a life as a musician. Simon started sleeping with Eve without knowing her relation to Hannah just being fascinated by the resemblance. Hannah finds out, goes crazy about the duplicate antique mirror gift. fights, breaks mirror, "accidentally" slits his throat. They hide the body in the cellar and off to Glasgow they go.


    Playing this game is the #2 gaming experience this year, bonus that I got to experience it with my wife. Playing it solo wouldn't be the same.

  4. I don't know why, but Forest Ambassador didn't click for me. Part of it is a high high degree of discussion of media/games I've never heard of. Usually when the ratio is a bit better I can hang, like when the Thumbs or VGHotdog talks through an unknown game.

    I'm not #altgames enough :(

  5. This same thing happened to me, I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one. I'm treating it the same way I've been treating all little hiccups with Win10-- hoping that it will soon just be fixed via patch. This already happened with video drivers so I'm thinking it might just be a waiting game.

    The other solution I've thought of is getting a Steam controller when they come out, but that also depends on how those are received. Anyone have any firsthand experience? Also how exactly do they connect, should I pick up an internal bluetooth card?

    That would be nice - but the pessimist in me thinks drivers for the ye olde X360 will not be a high priority at all.

    I'm hopeful re the steam controller, but worry that it will be near impossible to break the current 4 face/4 trigger/2 stick hegemony after all these years.

  6. After upgrading to windows 10, my X360 controllers stopped working. I reinstalled some drivers, etc and now they will connect so I can use them.

    However I've lost the "home button" functionality with the center button. Before it would boot up Big Picture and call up the menu in game. Super handy.

    Any thoughts on how to get back to where I was before?

  7. Got it! I briefly thought about holding off until more kinks are worked out but that button called to me.


    My games (Spelunky and Rocket League tested) ran really slow. For whatever reason, this fix worked


    Now my Xbox 360 controllers won't connect. My googling isn't turning up answers so easily for this one. Anyone run into this?

  8. Beat the hair! I used three firebombs to do it though :/ they were really tough. One hit KOs on everyone but Brad. I have the Chicken guy now.

    Do you think I'm under leveled at 10-12 or do you think I'll hit similar combat walls like this throughout the game? Wondering how much resolve I'll need to beat the whole thing...

  9. I think I should backtrack to the bar at the beginning and recruit another member with fire attacks. I only have the main guy and Nern. My third, the annoying guy you meet early who talks too much, was kidnapped while I was napping.

  10. This game makes me sad. The scenarios are so interesting and the music is truly fantastic. It burrowed into my brain and many evenings having a song stuck in my head would lead me to boot it up.

    I'm stuck though. I'll stay vague. I killed the blob with a firebomb and have the bicycle, but the nice hair people kill me in one hit basically. I really don't want to stop now, can someone give me some advice?

  11. I purchased the soundtrack steam edition based on this thread and the strength of said soundtrack. First 15 minutes were promising! I'm hopeful that I can finish this. I'm not much for long games anymore, much less RPGs.

  12. A testament to how fantastic the Nindie bundle turned out to be, here is the only game I already owned. Let me know if you want it. It's got a nice chill aesthetic and Mega Man style gameplay, only not as hard or frustrating.

  13. All of you are fantastic and I have a ton of great looking stuff to sift through. Thank you.

    You even gave me podcast recommendations :)

    EDIT: For music, Lucius - Wildewoman is one of my favorite albums from the past five years.

  14. My wife and I are making June 2015 women's media month. I want to try to consume books, longform articles, games, movies, TV made by women. For the more collaborative media, I'm settling for lead writer/designer/director being female. I've got a few ideas already, but would love more! Help me flesh this out?
