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

    Overcooked is good for multiplayer. Single player, I've really enjoyed Golf Story and am liking Human Fall Flat. Tried getting into Stardew Valley, but there may just be too much for me there. With how many things they put in that game I find myself pulled in all directions at once and don't reach a satisfying point in any of them. And yeah, Snipperclips is choice #1. I got a Labo. Built half a piano tonight. I enjoy constructing things. Looking forward to playing with it later!
  2. Jeff Goldblum

    It is the third I have seen, the others being French New Wave (very good) and Nier Automata alternate endings (EXTREMELY good). I enjoy this meme.
  3. LucasArts adventure games on GOG and Steam

    Yeah, I was 13, so probably in a very similar vote. When I logged into The SCUMM Bar and saw all the disappointed people who'd grown up on the earlier games I didn't understand at all. (Not to say I hadn't grown up on them a bit. MI2 was one of the first games I'd ever played thanks to a friend lending me that disc from a LucasArts Adventure pack, but I had limited access/experience with the rest of the catalogue.)

  5. LucasArts adventure games on GOG and Steam

    Man, I haven't played CoMI since I still lived in my mum's house. It's been nearly a decade. I gotta get on this and see how it holds up.

    38 is
  7. New people: Read this, say hi.

    What kind of magical place do you live where the liquor store also sells ice cream?
  8. Hoisted

    Old timer thumbs will remember the days of the ExtRemo.
  9. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I also work with ten year olds, so worst case scenario is that I bring it to work for a day near the summer vacation and the kids get a kick out of it.
  10. Best Third-Person Shooters

    For me what makes Third Person shooters special is the possibility of an advanced movement system. Moving around an open world with freedom is the main appeal of any third person game to me. As such, Just Cause 2 &3, Saints Row 3 & 4, Splatoon, Max Payne, Vanquish, and their ilk are the ones that I love the most. If I'm flying from firefight to firefight in a way that feels good and pulling ridiculous stunts along the way, I'm usually going to let a LOT more slide than I would with other games.
  11. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I may have already pre-ordered both sets...
  12. Sports!

    This isn't about hockey. Where is the sport?
  13. Bayonetta

    Most of the plot is actually super referential to the first game, which was also largely nonsense. The whole thing makes very little sense, but having a grasp on the first does help. Long story short, God created two gems that controlled reality, gave one to the lumen and one to the umbra with the intention of balance between light and dark. Then the lumen and umbra fucked that up by letting two of their members have a baby with each other (Bayonetta). In the first game, light (run by Bayonetta's father, Balder, who also controlled the lumen gem) made a play for the other gem which had manifested itself inside Bayonetta and was attempting to use the two to give god a physical form. Bayonetta kills Balder (who is brought back in Bayonetta 2 thanks to time travel as a past version of himself from before he'd lost his damn mind called "The Masked Lumen", which is why that dude matters), then actually punches god into the sun at the climax of that game. The finale of two explains why Balder went crazy in the first game, actually, making the story of the two games weirdly cyclical. The end of two leads into the start of one, then the end of one leads back into two, thanks to Loki's weird time shit pulling Balder from time period to time period. One is definitely a harder game and less polished, but I'm really glad that I played them back to back over two weeks. It was a really good two weeks. Going into 1 after finishing 2 would be kinda jarring. They're very similar to one another, but if you feel the urge to replay B2 in a few years, consider picking up the first at that time and trying them back to back. Very fun.
  14. I have mostly been playing on Easy since I'm traditionally bad at strategy games, but have only lost once so I should probably step it up. It's a very good game. Regarding that one loss, I recommend not taking a pilot that you're attached to on a run to get a feel for a brand new squad. I'm sorry, Smashy Stan. (I rename everyone to what their mech does).
  15. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    We used the exact same teams. They are very good teams. Luigi is sniper of the year.
