  1. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    He's not listed in the Kickstarter, he's listed on AngelList. It sounds like he's just a financial guy.
  2. Ouya: Ooooh Yeah!

    Instead of reiterating everything I've said, I'll post a link to my article. What grinds my gears the most is that there's clearly a lot of smoke and mirrors going on. In the video, Julie Uhrman states that the system will have Minecraft. That is a lie. There are no video game deals currently. The only confirmed app at all is the TwitchTV thing. 7 months to go from 'prototype' to full product with app store and UI? That's super aggressive for pretty much any proven company. As a toy, OUYA may be fun to play around with but really, what developer will want to create games for a console when it can be rooted as a selling point?

    McPixel is based off of MacGruber, Sos says it in his documentation.
  4. Pick my Path

    When I'm at work, my lunch usually consists of me eating something quickly while perched in front of my monitor. I need to stop that and add some reading time. Good suggestion.
  5. Recently completed video games

    I haven't been keeping track but it's probably a good idea to. The latest two games I finished were Max Payne 3 and Spec Ops: The Line.
  6. Pick my Path

    Hmm.. No, I hadn't considered that. Interesting thought!
  7. Pick my Path

    Neil Gaiman wrote American Gods, so your suggestion there pushes me in that direction. I started reading WATCHMEN before (not The Watchmen), and wasn't immediately hooked. American Gods I also started, and just got sidetracked. Here's a question for you all... With all the distractions in today's world, how do you read? I've got 3 kids, a wife, an iphone, computers everywhere, game consoles, other stuff coming at me from every direction, it's hard to stay focused.

    Oh man. Oh man. MCPIXELLLL
  9. If only all my adventure games contained pubic hair.

    You are all very helpful. Thank you for all your suggestions.
  11. The Walking Dead

    After playing through Episode 1 and being completely thrilled at what Telltale did, I went and read up through Volume 9 of the trade paperbacks. Those books are pretty great if you haven't checked them out yet. I've only watched the first season of the AMC show, but i thought it was pretty funny that everything that happens in that season takes place during the first volume... except that CDC crap. That was garbage (and what made me uninterested in the second season). Haven't gotten into episode 2 yet, but I've got it ready to go. Did anyone run into the save issue where apparently your choices from #1 didn't carry over?
  12. Yager's Spec Ops: The Line

    The fodder enemies go down in only a few hits, and if you headshot they're done in one. The only real sponges in the game are the "Heavy" soldiers who walk around carrying a SAW. They aren't particularly awful either. There are some "elite" type soliders, that are more fully armored, but again, nothing crazy.
  13. Yager's Spec Ops: The Line

    As much as I loved the story aspects, yeah... I can't see this game selling very well commercially. Two years ago, it would have been on the top of everyone's list. Now though, not quite as a sure thing. Walt Williams self identifies with 2K, so yeah, I guess Yager just "made it work" for them.
  14. Plug your shit

    Since joining this forum several years ago, a few of my cronies and I have started up a new website called Splitkick. It's about video games amazingly enough. We only do opinion pieces, reviews, interviews, and podcasts, not really news (some of us have done that before and it's not our thing). After being their podcast host for a couple years, I went on to host the weekly Rocket Jump podcast. I'd be interested to hear what you all have to think about our content.
  15. Yager's Spec Ops: The Line

    Awful? Not at all. It's just a third person shooter. They've attempted to do a few things to make it a little different, like having ammo be something scarce and have selectable fire modes for weapons, but there's nothing that says it's any worse that other Unreal Engine based TPS games out there. The story is really well done and honestly, it's a bit of a commentary on both war, heroism, and how dumb third person shooters are. I've heard others refer to it as more akin to Apocalypse Now.
  16. This is a good day... I didn't have to use my AK.
  17. OMG NEW SHOW?!

    Dude. There's something new on the feed. It's less than two minutes... but does this mean we're gonna get some thumbs that are idle again? Pretty please?
  18. I don't *think* he has uploaded it yet, but prior to hearing him talk about it, I got to the same part in Dragon Age and thought the exact same thing. That Wizard in the game is going NUTS with his casting while the Tranquil is just chillin' emotionless. It's pretty hilarious.
  19. Oops.. Nevermind, looks like that one is kaput.
  20. Just wanted to drop in and say I've thoroughly enjoyed your Podding about Far Cry 2 and Torchlight. I wish you would have talked more about games that were different. Keep on keeping on. I hadn't listened to Played Podcast in a while, but maybe I'll go check that out again... if Chris is still on it.
  21. Infant Gratification

    This is retarded, but I'm going to post it anyway. A few people I know on facebook are using this app to be lame... so I used it to be lame with Chris.
  22. I think I'm in a minority, but I can barely stand playing these adventure games anymore. I got a copy of S&M:Save the World for Xbox Live Arcade and really had to force myself to get through it. I'm rethinking playing of the new Monkey Island as well as, and considering not touching any of the titles that were recently made available on steam. This is contrary to what I thought was going to happen in my head. I grew up playing adventure games, specifically the * Quest titles from Sierra (which went from graphics/text to point-and-click throughout the years) and absolutely adored them. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis was one of my all time favorite adventure titles... Even liked The Dig and Loom... but that was like 15 years ago. Today, I find the style completely boring and unintuitive. I don't enjoy trying to interact with people using every item in my inventory and hear them say the same shit over and over. About the only thing I really like is the art style. I know Jake is here, so this may be sacrilege, but... am I alone here? Or can you really never go home again?
  23. Left 4 Thumbs

    Hey guys, we get people together every Thursday to play L4D... if any of you are interested, hit up our Steam group. It'll be versus if we have enough blokes.
  24. Left 4 Dead 2 BOycott !

    Left 4 Dead is a good game. Valve has done good by me for years... giving plenty of free content along the way, awesome games, and a great digital download service. I'll get Left 4 Dead 2.
  25. Duke Nukem Forever Canned [and then not]

    DNF isn't canned. This is just 3D Realms closing... There has been no official word about that yet. Take 2 still owns publishing rights to the game and would probably move it to another studio (if legally allowed) to finish it and get it out the door.
