  1. IdleMC Epoch 7.5 Final Prologue GOTY Edition

    I can host 'em no problem. If nothing else I'll probably put them in S3.
  2. IdleMC Epoch 7.5 Final Prologue GOTY Edition

    Thanks again for doing this! Is hosting this revival costing you anything? I'd be happy to donate a bit towards the cost, if so.

    This is awesome! Epochs 3 and 4 were definitely new world, we wiped away the server each time and started fresh. The fourth (I think) had a very extensive subway system, if I recall. But it predates booster tracks, so it relied on the old "make one cart clip into another cart" physics trick.

    Ah, looks like the domain expired. I do have them all, I'll try to set up a new hostname for the site tonight if I have time. Edit: I've set up the archive at - it's serving the wrong cert via https, so you'll get a security warning when you try to access it that way, but I'll fix that up later tonight. Plain http should be fine (and there's nothing especially sensitive on that domain anyway)
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Anyone Remember?

    Are you thinking of the copy from the Pantscast website?

    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.

    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.
  11. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    That's exactly where I fell off the game.

    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.

    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: They started recording it after season 2, so it's very spoiler-heavy on the first two seasons from the start. So... beware.
