  1. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    Is there a point of no return? If so, is it obvious? I've gotten all the lasers, but still have a lot of other stuff to unlock. Can you continue to explore after completing the game?
  2. Torment: Tides of Numenera

    I would avoid it. My understanding is that it's still quite broken.
  3. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    Can anyone tell me why this is not a valid solution for one of those damn early tetris ones? I don't need the solution. I just don't see what rule this is violating.
  4. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    Oh man, solving the garden mazes in the castle first attempt made me feel like a god damn genius. Let's ignore the countless others I've just walked away from. ¬¬
  5. The Witness by Jonathan Blow

    It also make me feel weird. I wouldn't go so far as to say that I want hurl, but my head and stomach definitely feel slightly off. Other than that, I'm really enjoying it. The audio log at the top of the mountain was so good.
  6. Movie/TV recommendations

    Not out in the US till the 4th. I want it to good, but I have low expectations. This is the time of the year in which studios release their dregs. They didn't even try to go for any awards with this one. Miller's Crossing and The Big Lebowski, unquestionably.
  7. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    Speaking of which, this is one of the more irritating aspects of Finn's character. Finn could have been a substantive character with a lot of conflicting emotions. But he was just an incompetent goofball. What part of the way Finn acts screams "brainwashed storm trooper"? In the film itself, one of the New Order guys even claims some absurdly low defection rate. If their brainwash techniques are so damn good, why does Finn appear to be utterly unaffected?
  8. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    Maybe someone has already mentioned this in the thread, but I was discussing the awful death star stuff with my friends after watching it again this evening, and we realized just how completely unnecessary all of it is. You could make a near seamless cut of this film that takes out all of the death star stuff. You don't need to blow up 5 planets that no one cares about. You don't need an unwatchable assault "planning" scene. You don't need a pointless space battle that has zero tension; that even the rebels know the outcome of going in so that they don't even bother to evacuate. All of it can go. (While you're in there, may as well axe the terrible smuggling space monster bit too.) You're still left with Han and Finn going to get Rey and the confrontation with Ren. It would have been better if that stuff wasn't happening on a giant death star planet, but you can only do so much. Imagine how much better the film would have been if it had actually been shot this way. If the confrontation with Han and Ren and Rey had been the culmination of the movie Empire Strikes Back style rather than being buried in a bunch of pointless clutter that no one cares about.
  9. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    If Disney is going to churn out Star Wars movies ad infinitum, then it would be great if they allowed some weird genre films to be made. You know, like a Star Wars neo-noir or a political thriller or whatever. You know, something that isn't a summer blockbuster where the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.

    Things that don't make sense:
  11. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    Was I the only one who really disliked Finn's character? I was sad that Oscar Isaac didn't have a larger role. His character was quite entertaining, and had an excellent opening scene. Also, who came up with these garbage names? They're impossible to remember. Snark? Slark? Snork? What? *checks IMDB* Ah, it's Snoke. Of course. And why are all the new names one syllable? For things I did like, Rey was most excellent, lightsaber battles were done correctly, and it was pretty. Things I'm looking forward to: Things I'm concerned about:
  12. Full Throttle Remastered

    Oh man, I can hardly wait! 2017...
  13. Fargo (TV series)

    I like season 2 way more than season 1 (granted, I think I'm only about 4 episodes in). Season 1 was a lot goofier, and the entire middle portion of the show felt like random filler.
  14. Recently completed video games

    I finished Technobabylon today. It was another quality Wadjet production that I'd definitely recommend. The puzzle design in particular was superbly executed and satisfying, apart from a few pixel hunts. I'm in an adventure mood. I recall that Danielle mentioned an AGS style adventure (earlier this summer?) that looked worth checking out, but I can't remember the name of it now (not Dropsy). I seem to recall there being three characters... and maybe they discussed the music and voice acting on the podcast? Does anyone have a clue?
  15. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    Wow, there's a lot of hate for the "Story Time" mode in the official forums. The assumption is that it's just a super-easy mode. That would be bit disappointing (the game isn't particularly difficult as it is), but I can see how implementing anything more sophisticated would be quite challenging.
  16. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    This is hilarious to me because the strongest part of the game is its writing, and most (not all) of the companions are interesting. Whereas, the game mechanics are alright, but definitely not something that I'd seek out in and of themselves. I'm quite curious to see how they implement the "Story Time" mode that they just announced. If it's done well, I think it could be a significant improvement to the game.
  17. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    And... They just announced part 2 is coming out at the end of January.
  18. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    I had the same problem. I finished it a couple weeks back, and enjoyed the story immensely. I'm glad that I pushed through some of the less interesting mid-game content. Has anyone played the expansion? I'm thinking of waiting till both parts of it are available.
  19. Fargo (TV series)

    I've only watched the first two episodes of the new season of Fargo, but I'm enjoying it a lot more than the first season so far. It's good!
  20. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    Yeah... that fight's impossible. I just turned on god mode.
  21. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    I've almost finished it now. Just need to clear out that endless dungeon before finishing up the main quest. Did anyone actually use the crafting/enchantment system? I completely ignored it.
  22. Project Eternity, Obsidian's Isometric Fantasy RPG

    I haven't played Eternity for months now. I put it down after arriving at the large, multi-area city. I want to play and enjoy this game, but the city is so thoroughly uninteresting that I'm having a difficult time pushing on. Do things improve after getting out of the city?
  23. Sound's like Nick's nightmare has happened to others:
  24. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    I always thought it was harder to see with Cat anyway...
  25. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    I've experienced this hilarious bug since the latest patch where dudes that I knock down with aard never hit the ground. They get stuck mid-air.
