  1. GOTY of the Year

    Totally - there's usually at least one game released in December that should be a candidate for GOTY (*cough*TalosPrinciple*cough*). Here's what came out last December. Myself, I only played one game released in 2017 due to a busy schedule. That game was West of Loathing, and it's worthy of a mention here. Mostly because it's hilarious, but the stick-figure art had a certain charm as well. Also if you're not playing with "stupid walking" set to "on" you're playing it wrong.
  2. bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

    Sounds like a version of Pi for the modern age.
  3. The threat of Big Dog

    From the academic behind "willrobotstakemyjob.com" posted upthread: Robots may have led to Trump’s presidential win https://eandt.theiet.org/content/articles/2017/10/robots-may-have-led-to-trump-s-presidential-win-oxford-university-study-suggests/ They really are trying to kill us all.
  4. It's way more action-focussed than Thief. You have superpowers! I really loved how the weapons and abilities meshed together, it gives you a lot of options (some of which you'll see in the video above). Getting caught usually just means that it's time to break out the good stuff. Or of course you could teleport across the rooftops and make your getaway. Really mean to get round to playing it again sometime, my last playthrough was too cautious and stealthy...
  5. bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

    Currently wishing this mining boom could be over so I can afford a midrange graphics card. Need to upgrade, but prices have been crazy for the last 6 months or so...
  6. I Had a Random Thought (About Video Games)

    Playing Lawbreakers' Blitzball mode for the first time yesterday, and I laughed when I found out the ball has the same voice as Morty.
  7. Mouse Wrist Pain

    This might be a bit drastic, but you could try using your left hand at work? Took me some getting used to, but it's saved me using the mouse in the same hand all day.
  8. Crota 2Day: A Destiny 2 Forum Thread

    Resurrecting this thread once more to mark the PC open beta, which started today. Played the introductory story mission - wow! Reminds me of Halo a bit, the part aboard the enemy ship especially had flashbacks to the Truth and Reconciliation. Gunplay feels pretty good, everything handles well with mouse and keyboard. Wish the UI would show key bindings for your abilities though (like Overwatch does) as I spent plenty of time in the menus trying to work it all out. My modest PC (AMD 7950...) gets a decent frame rate, so it's well optimised. Like others on here I'm also not liking the forced banter. Cayde isn't half as funny as the script thinks he is.
  9. The threat of Big Dog

  10. That part about the wipes... so good! Reminds me of this meme:
  11. The threat of Big Dog

    Oh good, they've built one of these:
  12. The Official Video Game Music Corner

    Good to see the return of the music thread! Been listening to this on repeat for the last few days. I never played the game, but I sure like Nero:
  13. If Mario has access to a time machine, how does that change the Idle Thumbs Unofficial Mario Canon? Cappy could be riding a dinosaur thanks to the wonder of time travel (no need for Mario to be 65m years old!) Dead By Daylight was the game that sprang to mind when the Thumbs started talking about Friday the 13th. Proof that good ideas tend to keep coming back to the surface.
  14. Recently completed video games

    Talos is fantastic. The DLC, Road to Gehenna, is up to the same high standard and well worth playing. I'll quote what I said about it in this very thread:
  15. The threat of Big Dog

    According to that, I'm pretty much safe from robots (2.5%). Those at risk could become HR managers (0.55%), nurses (0.9%), elementary school teachers (0.44%), clergy (0.8%) or photographers (2.9%). Working with humans seems to be the best bet. Pretty much everyone else is totally screwed. Sadly there is no entry for "President of the United States of America"
