  1. Does anyone care about the new consoles?

    Lucky you! I'm still on the lookout for one. Periodically online stores here will get a batch of 100 or so PS5s but they're gone in minutes and I never have time to order. :|
  2. Netflix Originals

    It is time again, my friends, to return to the Idle Thumbs forums for a yearly ritual. THE RANKING OF THE NETFLIXES Original Movies, that is. 1. I'm Thinking Of Ending Things I felt this one. As for Kaufman movies, I think I almost like it as much as Eternal Sunshine, but it's a lot darker. 2. The Old Guard This was just a really good sci-fi action movie. The action is thrilling not only because it's choreographed well, but because the stakes are well set-up. Unlike Extraction, pffff. 3. Lost Bullet This is my pick for HIDDEN GEM on Netflix this year. Great French actionmovie about a man framed for murder. It's a story you've heard before, but it's very well-told, and the actionscenes are great. 4. Da 5 Bloods That Delroy Lindo, man! He should be in more movies. Also pretty good: The Devil All The Time Love Birds Mank Meh: Extraction - all style, no substance! The Half Of It - I don't even remember any of this. Enola Holmes - Good cast, just... kinda boring. Disapointments: Eurovision:The Story of Fire Saga - I like Will Ferrell, and I'm an avid watcher of the Eurovision, so I was expecting to like this, but all the jokes are the same kinda lame jokes that the Eurovision already make about themselves every year.
  3. Does anyone care about the new consoles?

    I was just about to preorder a PS5 last week but then I saw it'll take until NEXT YEAR before it'd arrive cause they're so sold-out, so I dunno, maybe I'll see if I can find one in the local stores on opening day? That's probably wishful thinking. But yeah, an upgrade feels like a no-brainer since it'll run all the PS4 games I'm currently playing anyway, but with an improved performance.
  4. Working Hardspace, or Hardly shipbreaking?!

    Yeeeees I'm also playing this! In a week when TLOU2 and Desperados 3 is releasing, this thing just came out of nowhere and stole my attention away from those. I like games where you're just a everyday workerperson doing a job, and I like zero-G space-sim-stuff, so this is right up my alley. It's cool that Focus is throwing so much money at jazzing up weird niche sims like this and Snowrunner and giving them the AAA-treatment.
  5. Half-Life 3

    Or just get a Rift S. Way cheaper and perfectly fine for HL Alyx. Anyway sure you're gonna come to VR for Alyx, but you're gonna stay for Beat Saber.
  6. Half-Life 3

    Also here's a recent Valve interview where they talk about bringing the Campo Santo folks on board. (at 14:55)
  7. Half-Life 3

    So anyone else play this Half Life: Alyx thingy? I just finished it and here's WOT I THINK. Performance I'm on a GTX1070, i7-4770K 3.50GHz, 16GB RAM, playing with Oculus Rift. I had a few crashes, and also a bit stuttery performance towards the end. The game also kept warning that my memory was low whenever I started it up. It says it requires 12GB RAM, but I have 16, so dunno what I'm supposed to do about that (yeah, I had all other unnecessary applications shut down). Had graphics quality set to Low, tho the game still looked great, and performed smoothly for the most part. Gameplay This is the most polished first person shooter I've played in VR. Gunplay and other interactions feel great. They way you have to flick your wrist back to pull things with the gravity-gloves feels great. There's a ton of great little environmental touches. You can play the piano, draw with crayons, honk car horns, pick up everything that looks pick-uppable and open anything that looks like it should open. I played seated, with smooth locomotion. My favourite part was a stealth-focused section in a vodka distillery halfway through the game, which packs a lot of neat VR stealth ideas into just 30 min. It left me wishing someone would make a proper Thief VR game. Story It starts off strong, with a clear objective which you then pretty quickly accomplish. After that the pace slows down for the middle part of the game before getting really intriguing in the 3rd act. There are some crazy revelations and it's very fun to see how it ties into the series as a whole. Video! Having finished this it's hard not to think another Half-Life game is right around the corner. They way it ends, man... they just can't leave us hanging for another 15 years before continuing the story. I mean, they wouldn't do that, would they? ... would they?
  8. OK I JUST PRESSED THE BIG BUTTON! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1133590/Stilt_Fella/ And with that, this thing I've been working on for the last year is now a thing which people can buy on Steam. I'm exhausted. I need to go for a walk and clear my head.
  9. I've set a date, February 26! Get hyped and wishlist plz: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1133590/Stilt_Fella/
  10. [Released] Beppo's Hole (in one golf)

    Nice. I did give it another go with the new update but I think I only got +4 or so. Oh, one small last change I thought of: pressing "continue" with spacebar, that way the whole round would be playable with keyboard.
  11. [Released] Beppo's Hole (in one golf)

    And that is how it's done.
  12. [Released] Beppo's Hole (in one golf)

    Ok this is a remarkably solid golf game. The gameplay is tight and I love the commentary. My first round. I didn't quite get a good grip on the controls until hole 2. edit: played another round, on Intermediate and got a score of +1, just below Par! Suggestions: -change clubs with up/down arrows. -when putting there should be a minimum distance that the ball will always go, even if you just double-tap the shoot button because you're really close to the hole and don't wanna over-do it. -add 9 more holes and release it on Steam. I'll definitely buy it! The Thumbs would probably be cool with lending their voices/likeness to the game if you asked nicely.
  13. [Released] Beppo's Hole (in one golf)

    Ooooh yes, I remember some other game having this issue as well. I'm using Swedish keyboard. edit: ok yeah, the new version works!

    Same for me. :/ Output_log attached, in case that's of any use. output_log.txt
