  1. Idle Thumbs Streams

    Additional Nick Moments(TM): The Pizza Backstory Nick hates many things
  2. Bloozzard

    A lot of vanilla's charm for me was how much was unknown about everything (mostly due to a lack of tools and dataminers.) There's a certain sensation with making discoveries (small and large) that you just don't really get with modern WoW, both because of Blizzard's decisions and the prevalence of outside tools. It's also something you can't exactly recreate now.

    Nick had an interesting experience with having pizza delivered on his stream last night (feat. Janel) (also apparently featuring a bunch of my typos in chat)

    I both did not know people said that and am in no way surprised people said that.

    We were denied the true glory of orcs versus humans, but in space!

    I don't think the recent expansions actually live up to Blizzard's claims that they're returning to those roots. The most recent one certainly felt like it was just a few cutscenes devotes to faction leaders making angry faces at each other (and killing people I guess) and then the players go goof around on troll island. My biggest concern relates to your point, and is that they're going to double down on the recent trend of making pretty much all bad actions by any character the result of some corrupting influence by spooky evil being, because there's already enough of that in Warcraft 3 as it is. If it's just a few characters getting additional screentime, I'm not too concerned, but I would hope they don't just bog the whole thing down with it. I'm getting increasingly excited by new tower defense content though. Warcraft 3's battlenet never works for me for some reason, and a lot of standalone games just don't have the same charm.

    Blizzard’s statement that they were updating Warcraft 3’s story to line up better with how events are laid out in World of Warcraft seems... bad, given what a mess that game’s become. I’m curious what’s motivating them to mess with the writing when it seems like more risk for litte reward. I don’t think anyone (reasonable) would be particularly upset if the remaster of a ten year-old game didn’t line up perfectly with modern products, but I can think of plenty of changes that would annoy me. Anyway! Tower defense games! Someone better remake Wintermaul Wars.
  8. Just noting that there’s 3 days left of a free Battlerite Royale event.
  9. Another Red Redemption, Dead

    Nick's stream also suggests that there's intense lasso-based gameplay.
  10. Blade Runner 2049

    Accidentally replying to an old post, whoops. (I'm glad to get backup on the nipple presence though.)

    They all cut their thumbs off in a ritual that took place at the end of the last episode to rid themselves of the genie that had been forcing them to cast pods for all eternity.
  12. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    Given that none of them have had digits cut off, they are keeping up the thumbs front too.
  13. The battle royale standalone version of Battlerite came out into early access this week. Battlerite Royale. BR? BRBR? Regardless, it's a pretty interesting experience. The rounds seem to be much shorter than most games of the genre, and there's a lot of quirky little things that add a surprising amount of variety between rounds (at least for now.) Fake chests you can place that explode when opened, potions that turn you into parts of the scenery, etc. The devs also seem willing to experiment with the content they've already released, and that's been for the better so far. Anyone else playing it?
  14. Idle Thumbs Streams

    I strongly endorse going back to watch some of the higher-ranking clips from the various streams. They are a source of joy in these dark times.
  15. DOTA 2

    The Bane pair seems like the one with the most potential to me aside from all the fringe cases. Shadow Shaman too. The problem seems to be that you have almost no saves if you're running two offensive supports like this most of the time, and you risk getting run over pretty hard if you're not winning all your fights convincingly. I saw Waga playing him mid, so that might be an alternative that frees up another support with more... supporting abilities.
