  1. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    So I've been meaning to create this topic for quite a while now. As the game is now "currently nearing completion", it seems appropriate somewhat. Oh boy the new Binding of Isaac game looks amazing. Edmund McMillian has been updating the binding of isaac tumblr for the last month or so with updates and new additions to the game. It looks sweet. When he first mentioned that there's going to be a graphical overhaul, to make it look more like Zelda: LTTP, I was really skeptical, as I personally loved the art of the first game. I'm really pleased to see that the new game looks amazing though. There's a lot of stuff I'm looking forward to: Co-op: New bosses: Huge rooms: Becoming OP in new exciting ways: Awesome new soundtrack: The list goes on. So yeah. I have been looking forward to this game for a long time, and I'm super excited that it's almost nearly done.
  2. Secret Santa 2k17

    Messing about isn't the main reason, it's more that I've been super busy this last month with house buying, and also over Christmas time I'll be on holiday, so I won't be able to police my dms as much! If people want it I can set it up, that's no problem! Also I haven't been on the forums as much as work has been cracking down on non work internet usage. That and the boss can see my screen XD
  3. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    The umbrella is fun, but it does feel very situational. I love the concept, but in practice, i found that popping the brolly up kinda leaves you super defenseless with any weapon that isn't a charger, as you just can't retaliate fast enough, but it does do a fair amount of damage. the brolly is in the single player, if you want to play about with it. I really hate rainmaker. It's a great idea, but there are so many people who don't know what they're doing, even at C+ rank. I can't wait to get up a tier, because i'm getting fed up with people on our team taking the damn thing closer to our base and then dying. I had one guy last game who just swam around with the rainmaker, not knowing where to go or what to do, and had it in one corner of the map until the timer wore down and it got reset to the center. I didn't even know it did that! And then we lost. Saying that, I did get a real rush when i grabbed the rainmaker 10 points away from our base and sped it all the way to theirs. That was awesome. The Splatoon amiibo are always super gorgeous, but yeah, they really outshone themselves with them this time around! from the detailing on the boy squids hands, to the difference in plastic textures between the ink and squid in the squid form amiibo, it's really something! Also, their clothing sets are awesome. I love the school shoes with the socks. Dey look so hip.
  4. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Salmon Run is ace, I'm loving it. I think it's just the remix thing unfortunately. You can play the rhythm game by going to the arcade machine next to the DDR game in the plaza, but you can't play it whilst match making
  5. RuPaul's Drag Race

    Season 9 of this show started a fortnight ago, and I'm really digging it. Who else is watching it? It always takes a few episodes to get into the personalities of the queens, but Lady GaGa's appearance in episode 1 was amazing. No T no shade no Pink Lemonade
  6. Hey kitty kats! Another year, another most secret of santas. Last year i got an amazing gift set from the wonderful Dibs. socks, tasty chocolate money (which is now probably more expensive than real money), and a real cute sheep magnet. It was awesome! Much <3 dibbles Anyways, who's in for more santa this year? As usual, post on this for questions, and PM me to join. I'll update the thread with number counts. I'm closing the entry a tad earlier this year so that we can hopefully get presents sorted by xmas! Entries are closing on the 27th. As per usual, rules: How to enter: PM me with your name, Address and country before the 27th November. In the PM, also state if you are up for: shipping (i.e. physical present), international shipping (i.e. present from abroad), digital, or all/mix of the above! Also state any important information like food allergies. If you are wanting a digital present, also include your steam ID/email address. Rules: Present(s) should cost no less than $20 - $25, excluding shipping (note: I have no idea how much international shipping costs, so if this'll cost too much, let me know!) You must be an established forum member to enter (50+ posts). This is to prevent flakey flakers flaking out at the last minuet, meaning someone doesn't get a present and being sad. They'll probably cry. I know I would. After the 27th, I shall randomly assign people according to their shipping options, and then hopefully people will send off stuff and it'll all be fun and games. You shall get the address of your secret Santa by the 28th/29th Post on this thread what you get! Or don't! (but do)
  7. It's been a while. If anyone doesn't have a present yet, let me know and i'll get in touch with them!
  8. i'm not going to stop listening regardless, but i do listen in mostly for your game chat, as it's always interesting.
  9. This game is on PS+ this month! Exciting! I've always been curious as to how games get on ps+. do you know what happened with this ben? Did sony come up and ask dan if it's ok to put their game on ps+?
  10. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    whoa bit explosive there Kolzig. Sure, it's sad news that it's not coming out on WiiU, as I myself have backed it for the WiiU, but after playing with the Toybox+ on PC, it's clearly an issue with Unity, or whatever plugins they are using, and not with them. It's not as if they abandoned the system, or that they even want to. It's a bit much to say they're fleeing a sinking ship, because that genuinely wasn't their intention. Also, they're not a professional dev team, they're an indie team of ex-rare developers who just want to recreate the joys of N64-era platforming. They didn't expect this technical hurdle, nor do they have the money or the resources to overcome it.
  11. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    Also don't forget that they nerfed the Triforce collect-a-thon at the end, making it a lot easier to complete. lol,
  12. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    Did you do the final secret levels Tanukitsune? They were fucking brutal, but also the most satisfying platforming I've had since Super Meat Boy. I absolutely adore Tropical Freeze, it might be the best game on the system. The platforming is tough and the controls are tight. My only gripe is that it's really not a 2-player game, and Dixie is the best Kong compared to diddy and cranky, apart from the 4 or so kong letters/warps where you need cranky's cane. Seriously there is no point to diddy's existance. I might be wrong, but I think there's a demo on the eStore? If you like the bayonettas, I recommend Wonderful 101. I'm also playing TMS:#FE, and it's a blast.
  13. Creepers, it's Christmas! (2016)

    Ben I think you need to create a true Christmas thread. Not this pale imitation.
  14. Fantasy Finale XV

    Not really. It might have been cliched but you need an event in order to have characters grow, I guess. tbh I wish the story just made an ounce more sense. i'm on like chapter 6 and i have no idea who's a friendly or not
  15. Fantasy Finale XV

    Yeah, Brotherhood is good! I liked it a lot in the run up to release. The CG film, however, I hear isn't so good. :/ I'm really enjoying this game. I like how driving is fixed, even though i did manage to wang my car on the first crossroads lol! Now prompto drives. Also, it's a weirdly static open world. Maybe it's because i'm used to more action-based open-world affairs, but it's not very interactable. Items are just shiny shinys on the floor, and bar monsters and the occasional npc's, you can't really react to anything. In many ways it reminds me of Yakuza's open world, beautiful yet untouchable. Also sometimes I'm trying to pick up an item and it doesn't really do it despite being on top of it and I'm just a loon jumping on the same spot. Still, this is a fun game, they clearly have put effort into other things, which work a lot better, like character interactions.
  16. Right, all santas should have their giftees now! If you don't, please PM me and I'll sincerely apologise for my royal cock-up and sort something out!
  17. Just a quick update - I'll do the posts when i get home tomorrow (28th), so expect to hear about your giftee in the next 24 hours!
  18. But those Double Online Madness Weekends are worth all the Mountain Dew and Relentless in the world.
  19. Other podcasts

    I mean, fair enough regarding FatT, It's just going to the bottom of my list until i've caught up with Glass Cannon, My Dad wrote a porno and Campaign (which is another gread Star Wars DnD pod). Maybe I'll jump back in on it, but it's just hard when there's better stuff out there. If you haven't listened to the exceptional 6 music's Adam and Joe podcast, which in my honest opinion is the best podcast ever, I strongly reccommend that. It's stopped now, but there's some excellent recaps of the whole show on the A&J podcast stream, and there are a couple of torrents of the complete set which are really worth hunting, becuase they are really, really funny. I also reccommend Radio X's Chris Moyles Podcast, which is really funny, Moyles is a lot calmer than he used to be, and it's really lovely to listen to a professional do what he loves doing and does it really well. Finally, Richard Herring's Leicster Square Theatre podcast is a great comedy show where he interviews other comedians live at Leicster Square. Particular highlights are Ross Noble, Stephen Fry and Limmy. Oh also, whilst i'm at it, Answer Me This is a pretty funny british question show with some funny hosts. Well worth a listen.
  20. Other podcasts

    I really dislike FatT. the first episode was 3 hours of them piddling around asking if they can see each others cursors and generally being dull af. i do really recommend the glass cannon podcast for some excellent and riveting dnd. even though it's path finder
  21. Aww I'm touched! gg on getting those 50 posts! If you're really good, you might not need to make the 50 prerequisite. (but you have to be reeeally good)
  22. PM me plox! (Then delete the post so that no one knows you're in the runnings!)
  23. New Forums! Post feedback, notes, etc here

    Hey, it is possible someone could update the site with all the relevant contact details? I don't know where to find the correct email address for questions to Idle Weekend, I can't find it anywhere! I don't really want to listen back through a pod to find that 4 second clip of the address.
  24. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    I believe it does Roderick.
