  1. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    Yeah, I know most people here probably know about them but one of their albums was just rereleased this week so I've been listening to them a lot lately along with other riot grrl and punk.
  2. Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road CSG Kickstarter

    I'm glad the writing and gameplay seem to hold up ok. I was well aware of the artwork looking horrid from seeing the previews so I was pretty pessimistic about the rest of the game. EDIT: I just started playing. Oh god, the animation and models in this are worse than they are in the trailers. The writing seems fine and I'm liking the music so far but even as someone who usually doesn't even care about graphics this is really bothering me. How did they think this was ok? Luckily it looks like the models in the Gabriel Knight remake are better.
  3. Diablo III

    Wait what's this? Blizzard is separate from Activision now? Did anyone read Stay Awhile and Listen? It's an ebook about the making of the first Diablo and I thought it was pretty cool. It's not perfect but it's a pretty fun read if you liked other stuff like Masters of Doom. http://www.amazon.com/Stay-Awhile-Listen-Blizzards-Video-Game-ebook/dp/B00G8UL474/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397438036&sr=8-1&keywords=stay+awhile+and+listen And yeah, change the difficulty. The game improves drastically if you play on a harder difficulty and play with friends instead of solo. Join the Thumbs guild, we'll play with you!
  4. Morrowind

    I think what I love the most about Morrowind is the world itself. Everything just feels so alien in the creature and building design. I had such a hard time getting into Oblivion because the world felt like generic fantasy compared to Morrowind. Skyrim still wasn't as good but at least it was better than Oblivion. Now I really want to play Morrowind again. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is how tedious it is fighting cliff racers.
  5. Year of the Goat has replaced Year of Luigi
  6. Comics Extravaganza - Pow Bang Smash!

    Never heard of it but I do like Brian K. Vaughan. I'll check it out!
  7. I'd also like to say Danielle is great and I hope she comes back soon. It sucks that there's some negativity in this thread but at least it rarely ever happens here. I was also expecting Remo to be more of an expert on escape goats since he did write this
  8. Comics Extravaganza - Pow Bang Smash!

    Would you recommend these if I wanted to get through the series? I've only read the first story a long time ago and would like to get through the rest. I don't know why I waited since I really liked the comic too. Are the spinoffs worth reading too? I know nothing about Hellboy aside from the first few issues.
  9. Diablo III

    I really should pay more attention to the multiplayer gaming group. Request sent!
  10. Diablo III

    I'm really liking the expansion too! It's probably an even bigger change for me than most people since I haven't even played since before paragon levels were introduced and yeah, it's way better now that everything has been rebalanced. Was anyone thinking of getting a Thumbs clan or community going for this game? Do we even have enough people for that?
  11. Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2014

    I'm actually ok with him making a game and the game I voted for won, but think of it this way, maybe it helped get the Amnesia Fortnite some extra funding and some Adventure Time fans have discovered Doublefine and will buy some of their games. At least it will be fun to see him participate in the daily streams for the next two weeks.
  12. Amateur Game Making Night

    Those are indeed some pretty sick ramps. Nice work!
  13. Amateur Game Making Night

    Oh thank god I chose C# then. I've been learning Unity by working on a game with my friends (basically a remake of the old pc game Skyroads) and I didn't know what to choose. I was more familiar with C# but it looked like their documentation and a lot of tutorials used Javascript. I guess I chose wisely.
  14. Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2014

    3 votes isn't enough! I ended up going with Buried Metropolis, Eras of Adventure, and Dear Leader. I chose Little Pink Best Buds as my Pendleton Ward game.
  15. Of course 20 minutes after hearing Nick talk about Astro Blaster, my friend posts on Facebook about how she maxed out the score on the ride before even leaving the first room. Maybe it IS a baby game
  16. The Idle Thumbs 10th Anniversary Committee

    Is it too late to donate? I just found out about this thread after listening to the podcast.
  17. What's the Steve Gaynor lean? And I don't know why you guys were so self concious about using podcast to talk about the 90s. I would be ok with a 90s PBS podcast.
  18. When's the next time you guys are playing? It would be cool to play with a group of people that know the game. I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing but it seems fun so far.
  19. If there's one game that needs Oculus Rift support, it's a game by Cyan. I can't wait to play this. I'm actually not a huge fan of Myst 3. I really like the other games that studio developed (The Journeyman Project series) but the world in Myst 3 just wasn't that interesting to me. It might actually be my least favorite Myst game, not that it's bad. I also think that if you're going to play Uru, you should actually download Myst Online instead. It's free, you can interact with other people, and it has the content that Cyan created for the game when it was on Gametap.
  20. Gone Home from The Fullbright Company

    Just another post saying how great Gone Home is. I hope it doesn't take years for Fullbright to develop another game. Anyone know how well it's selling so far? It's not at the top of best selling list on Steam but I would imagine that it has a way lower budget that most of the stuff on there anyway and hopefully it's profitable for them.
  21. Gone Home from The Fullbright Company

    I had a dream last night that I played the ghost hunter DLC for Gone Home and it was pretty awesome. Please make this happen Steve.
  22. Broken Age - Double Fine Adventure!

    I think that most of the people that backed it aren't angry about it. Most of the rage seems like it's mostly because it's the internet, where someone always irrationally hates something. I mean, it's still a big screw up but the game is still happening unless no one buys the early access.
  23. Wonderful, I have a pretty big break from work when it comes out for the PC as well. Has Telltale said when Fables and Walking Dead season 2 are coming out?
  24. Is Inform 7 what you want to use for more traditional IF?
  25. Leisure Suit Larry in "gimme your money"

    True, some did. I thought that there were still some later games that had pretty bad dead ends though. I agree with RPS's review. Not bad, not great http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/06/27/wot-i-think-leisure-suit-larry-reloaded/
