  1. At least the food isn't a survival mechanism. It's basically just a health refill, plus maybe a temporary boost to some stats. But yeah, I get it. One nice thing about the Switch for me has been the portability and the system-level mandate that games support preserving their state when you put the console to sleep. It makes it easier to play things for a little bit at a time.
  2. You never know... I still have minimal interest in the combat sections of that game, but playing it as a purely open-world exploration adventure, it gave me plenty of fun. Figuring out how to sneak around mobs to unlock fast-travel towers or get past mountain ranges turned into a kind of weird meta-puzzle that I enjoyed more than I expected.
  3. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I didn't try the demo because I'm already 100% confident I'll enjoy the finished game. I also really want to see Yoshi's Woolly World ported from the Wii U. That game was great too.
  4. Anyone Remember?

    Are you thinking of the copy from the Pantscast website? https://web.archive.org/web/20120804075222/http://pantscast.com:80/
  5. Idle Thumbs Mastodon

    Should be fixed now, sorry about that! Update: temporarily down for a few while I migrate all the upload assets to S3. Sorry! IT's back for real now, and images have been migrated to S3 so we don't run out of space again.
  6. Idle Thumbs Mastodon

    Sorry, I'm on vacation and haven't been able to check it out. Rails likes to slowly allocate memory and eventually start swapping. Will check it out in the morning.
  7. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    That's exactly where I fell off the game.
  8. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    For what it's worth, my engagement with the forums has dropped as conversation has coalesced into a few megathreads, even if they're for subjects I'm actually interested in, like Switch games. It's basically turned the forums into a slack channel anyway.

    Oh dip.
  11. The Good Place

    There's a pretty good companion podcast, hosted by Marc Evan Jackson (who plays Shawn) where various members of the cast and crew are interviewed about things: https://overcast.fm/itunes1388743215/the-good-place-the-podcast They started recording it after season 2, so it's very spoiler-heavy on the first two seasons from the start. So... beware.

    Bye
  13. Idle Thumbs Mastodon

    Do you miss the fun days of Twitter, when it wasn't full of (as many) garbage people and was way harder to use? We've set up a Mastodon instance just for Idle Thumbs at https://idlethumbs.social What is Mastodon? It's basically decentralized Twitter. You can follow people from other instances, but your local timeline will always show you post from just the Idle Thumbs instance. It's a delight. Also it's free and you can just go sign up.
  14. I believe some folks are still in the process of moving.
  15. Still newer forum!

    Nah, the forum software groups reports, and if you reply it just means there's a dangling reply that makes no sense once the spam is cleaned up. Though it does seem to have subsided in the last day or so, fingers crossed.
