  1. AGDQ 2016

    My highlight of AGDQ is always the Super Moneky Ball speedruns. Last year when I lived with three other students we had AGDQ on the main TV in the background while we did other things and would occasionally come together to watch certain games. Edit: After watching that Mario Maker event, THAT'S my new favourite for sure!
  2. I work at Game (the main game retailer in the UK) and there's no longer an Amiibo shortage. If anything, we're getting too many. We've had so many Dr Marios in we don't know what to do with them! King Dedede is coming in all the time, and I spent £25 on getting one imported from Japan! The main people that seem to buy Amiibo are adults thinking they're like Skylanders for their children. I still get excited whenever new ones come in, and have bought three over the past month, but the general hype around them has died down so much over the year.

    Added my details Also new to the forums, look forward to playing games with new people!
  4. Tabletop Game Development

    I had to design a board game for my university course, it turned out pretty well but it was so difficult trying to create something in a short timespan with five people who hadn't played many tabletop games prior the coursework. Since then I've become an avid tabletop gamer, I go to board game meet-ups 2+ times a week and might even take up tabletop game design rather than video game design as a career after university. The concept we had was based around riots and riot behaviour (it had to be something involving current issues), it was a 1 vs 3 game where one player controls a police force and the rest of the players control rioters. At first the game was going to be a bit like capture the flag but it turned out to be both boring and too easy for the rioters to win. We then changed it so either side would have different objectives but only implemented that gameplay element a few weeks before the deadline. I might continue the concept further (although might change the concept to something more light-hearted, or at least not so real), but either way I learned a lot from it.
  5. Steam Summer Sale Spendapalooza

    I usually spend way too much money during Steam sales, although the only game I've bought this Steam sale is Hatoful Boyfriend...
  6. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    The Dear Hunter is one of my favourite bands of all time; they're a progressive rock band with elements of jazz, blues, alternative rock, indie rock, classical and who-knows-what-else. They've released three albums that continue the story of the 'Dear Hunter', a collection of nine E.P.s, each a different genre, and a stand-alone album.
  7. E3 2015

    There seemed to be a lot more games that were 'console-exclusive' but also on PC this year that previous years. Unfortunately, it seemed like the PC Gaming conference was a bit of a shambles and severely bored a majority of the people watching (even the crowd looked exhausted near the end of the conference, one person I follow on Twitter who was in the crowd started live-tweeting the countdown clock they had timing each guest's slot). If it were a bit shorter in length, structured more like the other conferences and less like a low-budget late-night chat show then it might have been a good part of E3. At least there was the presence of Tacoma, No Man's Sky and Beyond Eyes to grasp my attention.
