  1. Regarding Williams mail : What ? Another queer gamer from northen Sweden who also listens to thumbs podcasts? Awesome! I live in Umeå and I think there's a pretty good support for the things you mentioned in your mail here. I was recently attending Global game jam on Humlab X which I believe is a space where people can converge and make stuff that's funded by the University. When I was attending we mostly stuck to free software like blender, Unity, and other stuff that doesn't need licencing. If you have a laptop I think you can sit in the library as well. I usually sit at the university on weekends. I have classmates that teach children to program in Scratch, there's game jams going on pretty much all the time and tons of free software so I don't see any problem in it. Or did I misunderstand your point?
  2. Man, exact ditto on the Soma question, I was scared to death in the game until I toughened up and just ran and took a death. Then I knew what the worst was and the rest of the game was pretty tame. And I was also on the verge of quitting , I mostly survived by streaming the game and being on skype with some friends watching. My favorite moment was when I was getting really cocky about the game. I grabbed a keycard and re-wrote it so it would open an elevator which the evil being was guarding. So I went to the computer , re-wrote the keycard but forgot to pick it up afterwards and freaked out when the monster was chasing me and I couldn't get the elevator open and then it hit me, I forgot the damn card, I couldn't help but laugh at the absurdity of it all. And my friend told me he was laying on the couch watching me play and also freaked out when he saw me not pick up the card afterwards, he told me he was screaming to the monitor in vain in his living room. Great times... haha Good game, everyone should try it!
  3. I think Jake would love this ( because it's Mario 3 mechanics pushed far beyond what you need in a normal Mario 3 run) : Also if you though the Mario 64 commentary was bonkers I present to you Cosmos Ocarina Of Time Speedrun in 18:10 with full commentary, watch it , it's a treat! Especially if you know the game! 3D zeldas are really broken and fun to watch in my option xD
  4. Holy crap, this show is amazing, the talk about animation and then the talk about mechanics and what they mean and culture where all amazing. I wish I could be more constructive but my mind is kind of blown right now and in awe. It's kind of driving me nuts how great you guys are at articulating your thoughts (while still being super respectful to other opinions and doubting your own, are you guys sure this isn't scripted? xD), especially Rob, holy crap. Great show , keep it up guys! Also awesome that Jake could be on for a bit! More Jake for the people!
  5. Man this show, so happy, cozy, personal and wonderful! Keep it up guys! Loving it! Speaking of Christmas memories, me and my brother knew we where getting super smash bros for the N64. We saw the ridiculous commercial where the people in suits beat eachother up and where super excited to play it. Come Christmas and we were going away pretty far, about a 5 hour drive. When were almost there tragedy ensures, we forgot to bring the N64. Christmas ruined and we where inconsolable. Thinking back to it now though it's pretty funny
  6. Nice! The also fixed the Tigers pathfinding, finally! It was a nightmare before!
  7. Wow, great episode, love how intimate and personal this show is ! Makes me feel a lot better about being depressed and stuff A great addition to the Idle thumbs network, can't wait for the next episode! Great job guys!
  8. Just "finished" Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist. It was pretty entertaining and about what I expected, what I didn't expect though was a pretty hilarious discussion on the steam community page / discussions forum. Must have been the devs who put som postst there? No? Fun idea to extend the make-believe of the game to the discussions forum, if not them gg to the community on that one. Play it then check it out! Maybe you can figure out what that thing is... I still haven't gotten past the tiger....
  9. Yes, now I can finally add Nick Breedon to! I wonder where he works? Probably at Phaedrus.... I guess Jake would know (?)
  10. Random though: I was watching some games done quick videos and stumbled upon a Bomberman Hero race and it reminded me about it's awesome but pretty bizzare soundtrack. It's mostly drum and bass tracks and it's pretty darn good ( I love drum and bass!). And it got me thinking about other games that has dnb (drum and bass) tracks in it. The only one I could think of is System Shock 2 and that ios(?) game that Spaff once talked about on idle thumbs. I would be interested if anyone knew more games with "good" dnb tracks in it, just a random though! And it's pretty weird that almost every track in the game is drum and bass. Also everyone has to check out what bomberman says when he beats a level in the English ver, it's pretty hilarious! Even as a kid it was hilarious! I did it!?
  11. If I remember right kero blaster loops around after you beat it the first time and puts you in hard mode the second time . And if you beat it a second time you get a special super hard second final boss. I wonder if Chris made it there? Can't imagine playing the hardest parts on a phone though..
  12. Went here just for this, I Harry endorse this. Also kero is the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound a frog makes
  13. I think Chris is playing Ori in a unsatisfying way or a "wrong" way haha (just kidding). The way ( that I like to play) Metroidvanias is to run trough the game, maybe pick up some powerups that you find on the way then when you get all of your abilities you just get all of the stuff in the end and I find that part very satisfying . I had a blast running trough Ori. Just a bummer that you can't go back to some areas so I got 100% in every area except in one area that I can't go back to. But I get stuck in other stupid loops like sidequests or canvas of prayer quests in Lightning Returns or just doing every stupid thing Shadow Of Mordor before moving on to the second area. I just can't move on before I do them even if I know that I'm not optimizing my "fun" to time ratio The Moon Logo and the visual effects in Ori reminds me so much of The Swapper for some reason, is there any correlation or am i making that up? Also, finally a Nick Breckon soundboard!
  14. So on the topic of Orc dating sims... Apparently a writer named Mitch Alexander is making one called Tusks! And it actually seems to be really thoughtful and interesting! I think a demo is on it's way soon so I'll check that out Apparently it will feature a NSFW content on/off toggle and orcs with visible and invisible disabilities which is interesting The whole thing is in the link below, it's SFW.
