  1. Double Fine Action News

    From the jobs page: "The ideal candidate has a minimum of 5 years experience in games programming, with at least 1 published console or PC networking title. Published games should reflect experience with PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and/or PC development (familiarity with Xenon is a plus)" Also, I think DS dev kits cost something like $4000
  2. Cut Psychonauts stuff

    To the best of my knowledge, the only way to get xbox game files onto a pc is via a youknowwhatt-ed xbox, because a pc dvd drive can't read xbox games. I feel like youknowwhatting my xbox even less than I feel like downloading 3 gigs

  4. Cut Psychonauts stuff

    Poop. I want all of the delicious sound and video files from the game, but I don't want to open my PC copy of the game. Looks like I'll be downloading 3 GB on dialup
  5. Calling the graphics unoriginal and linking to that image in the same post was not a good idea..
  6. Tim Schafer loves me

    Tim loves me so much that he couldn't find the words to express it
  7. Psychonauts hate thread

    The eb near me has a counter with benches instead of stand up kiosks. All three consoles have their own 19" tv. You still can't choose which games they have in the console, but it's better than standing up and playing on a 9" screen with a controller that's bolted to a piece of steel.
  8. Game Packaging Sucks

    I'm partial to white backgrounded box arts.. Yummerz
  9. Is it just me or is Majesco.....

    ... *cough* Fangus was cancelled because of OI's major restructuring, they are an ideas and art company now, as read on this site here (you might have heard of them).
  10. Is it just me or is Majesco.....

    *cough* EA published the latest oddworld game

    For the first year of its life, you couldn't enter a gaming forum without seeing "LOL but xbox is sew hueg!"
  13. Psychonauts = 9.5 from OXM

    No, but you should be able to see some level of conformity between reviewers. I guess comparing one reviewer to another is a LITTLE unfair, so let's look at a few of hilary's past reviews. 9.3 Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War 9.3 Deathrow 9.5 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 9.1 Jet Set Radio Future - unique game, has flaws (ie camera), yet still got a 9.0+ score 9.2 Panzer Dragoon Orta - unique game, has flaws (ie length), yet still got a 9.0+ score This one takes the cake.. 8.7 Tao Feng: Fist Of The Lotus - apparently this stupid game is as good as psychonauts.

    Those stupid closeups make it look bigger than it is. They don't hide the ugly, though...
  15. Psychonauts = 9.5 from OXM

    As well as factual errors.. Quote from the review.. I can't get over this score when I look at something like gtasa's review. I guess overwhelming the player with mediocrity (mediocre graphics, gameplay, minigames, driving physics, plane physics) is better than a steady stream of awesome creativity. Objectively, I could see psychonauts getting an 8.7. Some may not like the sense of humor, the brevity or whatever, but RELATIVE to IGN's other reviews, a 8.7 is a slap in the mouth. Are jade empire, god of war and gtasa REALLY that much better than psychonauts? Why do they overlook the flaws of those games but harp on psychonauts'? I guess in the end it doesn't really matter, nobody outside of the gaming community cares what ign thinks, and the gaming community only cares when IGN's opinions coincide with their own. On the bright side, I'm sure psychonauts will make an appearance on some stupid "underrated gems" list that ign craps out during a particularly slow gaming week!
