  1. Game of Thrones (TV show)

    Is this show just straight up bad now?
  2. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    You really want to savescum the challenges to get multiple kill types on a 'single' run, and planning how to best do that kinda becomes a game all in itself.
  3. @Kyir I haven't tried this, but here is an easy-sounding recipe that will use all of the garlic. http://altonbrown.com/40-clove-chicken-recipe/
  4. The percentage thing is a bit of a joke: http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/303124/do-shrine-treasures-count-toward-the-completion-percentage-on-the-sheikah-slate
  5. I think the reason BOTW isn't optimized to let you run then jump is that the stamina loss from even a tiny bit of running is actively detrimental for gliding long distances, and running into a jump does not actually give you much forward momentum compared to just walking. It just feels really good to run into a glide. Paddles make a ton of sense conceptually, but I imagine they're less intuitive for novice gamepad users, and getting used to paddles really does take some brain rewiring after 20 years of SNES-derived controller designs.
  6. Idle Thumbs Streams

  7. You have to pick up drops from enemies, and seek out pickups in the environemnt. You rarely cared about that on your Dark Souls streams, but these are how Bloodborne makes blood vials acceptable. (Not good, just acceptable.)
  8. That's a bummer, but I'm also pretty excited to see where GB West goes with two new hires to reshape it. Shake stuff up!
  9. I think the spirit of the reader's question is "can anyone who wants to beat a Dark Souls do so?", because otherwise it's just a stupid thought exercise that ends with silly hypothetical scenarios, like the one explored on the cast. If anything, you're proof of the opposite. You could do it, but you don't want to, and that's fine. Here's a nice writeup about the LP Chris mentioned: http://kotaku.com/how-a-total-novice-built-a-solid-youtube-following-beat-1769744851
  10. Hitman: Steve Gaynor Edition

    I got spotted in the safe room and ended up in a gunfight in a nearby bathroom. Killed one of the military dudes, took his pants while no one was looking, and walked right past the whole crowd of hotel guards yelling at me to get out.
  11. Steam Greenlight

    The most logical way seems like Valve not taking their cut of sales until the fee is repaid, but I can also see pitfalls in that approach.
  12. Jake's 3D glasses trick was done during the 3D TV push, without red/blue part. A small number of PS3 games supported two views/players on one screen using two sets of polarized 3D glasses on a special Playstation-branded 3D TV, and some TV manufacturers had similar set-specific implementations that just stretched the hell out of the image but obviously couldn't account for menus or cutscenes, which totally broke the experience.
  13. Patreon actually has this functionality built in now. It generates a unique per-backer RSS feed that stops working if you stop backing. You'd just have to post the ad-free versions attached to backer-only Patreon updates, I think?
  14. (I hope nothing like this idea isn't floated in the back half of the episode, as I haven't finished it yet.) Have you guys considered also keeping Idle Thumbs going, just putting out episodes less frequently? I'd be fine if it morphed into The Idle Game Club, to follow the network's other monthly cast. Along those lines, you might all agree to play the same 1-2 for each monthly episode – the discussions when multiple hosts have gone deep on the same game have been a highlight in the past. At any rate, I'm excited to listen to whatever you guys put out.
