  1. Idle Thumbs Streams

    An excellent trilogy: And a-doe-rable clip: As far as stream requests, CKII would be nice to see again. The Monks & Mystics expansion from earlier today lets you join a Satanic cult and generally expands the religious game. Total Warhammer would also be cool.
  2. There would have to be some kind of throttle, but the quest to discover the other brains is an excellent long term goal for this cast.
  3. Fuck Rob! Congrats Rob! Now that you're both at the same location, what are the chances of Rob-mentors-Danielle in strategy streams? CKII Monks & Mystics would be awesome.
  4. Idle Thumbs Streams

    Ok, who asked for sweet clips? When the Zelda vod is uploaded to Youtube, Nintendo will probably try to take your ad money. If you care enough to prevent that, here's a guide to Copyright Deadlock.
  5. It has good stories, good storytelling (once you start to piece things together), and excellent worldbuilding. Here's a summary of the first game's stories from Dan Floyd: And starting at 18:20, Super Bunnyhop discusses more here: I think my favorite big-picture video, though, is this from RockPaperShotgun's fail forward series; 9:48-15:32 being the most interesting part:
  6. I don't want to keep flooding the IT thread with BB talk, but I agree with others that farming and exploring is much more interesting than inevitable death rushes.
  7. Torment: Tides of Numenera

    I'm 9 hours in, and still haven't gone to the Underbelly or Order of Truth. I'm loving so much of this game.
  8. The Next President So all he has to do is brag about getting a soldier killed for no reason while being less embarrassing than usual, and some in the press start to love him.
  9. I wasn't going to comment because I don't have anything interesting to add, but I've decided to anyway. This episode is definitely the best you've done in a while; it's truly incredible. My favorite moments have always been ones where I am baffled at the nature of what I'm listening to (Ancestry -> cave-dwelling Scottish serial killer Breckon is one of the peaks), and there are so many great instances of that here.
  10. I also have the hoarding problem in games, to the point where I finished Fallout 4 with over 400 stimpacks (generally sticking to cooked food, which was also hoarded). One interesting solution to this problem is the cypher system from the Numenera table-top game, wherein there's no hard cap on these consumables, but holding too many can harm the player. From here: I haven't played the tabletop game or Torment and so don't know how it is in practice, but it's always sounded cool. Edit: The cypher system works effectively in Torment
  11. Idle Thumbs: A Patreon

    Wait, how has nobody posted this yet? This is what content is made of!
  12. I've also listened to a lot of Thumbs while going to sleep, and remember once waking up from fairly deep sleep to the NOB! music. It was so bizarre that I went on to assume it was actually just part of a dream or a hypnagogic hallucination. Then (maybe just a few minutes later), I reset the podcast to the last stuff I remembered hearing, and once again woke up to NOB! I was able to get through the cast fully awake the next time, but in listening to 300's compilation, I was yet again woken up by NOB! I don't know when, but I'm sure it will wake me up again in the future.
  13. It's been almost a month since I've been sent the clips, so here's an update: Over the past few weeks, I'd been instead working on job applications. Starting today, however, progress is resuming. At this rate, I expect to be finished by the end of the month. Also, here's one of the best and most naiive clips I've found while moving through them:

    What happened to Steve's portrait?
  15. I expected this to be a time filler podcast, as opposed to one I actively looked forward to, and I was completely wrong! Amazing start.
  16. Dan Floyd finished his Dark Souls 2 lore video yesterday, for those interested.
  17. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    So 47 is a fan of moonshine
  18. Can one of the pre-300 episodes be episode 12? You went from 11-2 to 13 and I didn't notice the absence of 12 until tonight when I was wrong about its existence. :c
  19. To me, the most important thing about Idle Thumbs is the community. As long as it's maintained, I'll continue being here to support you. During the 'trying stuff out' phase and since the normal schedule is now at night, would you consider reintroducing the 30m pre-episode game streams? ___ After the show, Chris decided to answer some questions about the future of Idle Thumbs in the Twitch chat:
  20. Nick Breckon has usurped the title of Idle Thumbs!
  21. Idle Thumbs Streams

    7-7:30 Pacific
  22. Feeona's stream has had some good content tonight
  23. There's a solution to your chat problem, Nick!
  24. I think you should at least try to have Sean on next week. He'll have a ton of crazy stuff to say about RE7 (although he might make you play it anyway).
