  1. Deus Ex 3

  2. Plug your shit

    Haha, perfect.
  3. Shadows of the Damned

    Picked it up yesterday, should have some time later this week to play it. It's fighting for priority with Alice: Madness Returns at the moment. I'm a huge Akira Yamaoka (and I adore Grasshopper and Suda51) fan so that was the main selling point for me. Also this little excerpt from the game manual:
  4. Fresh Indie Game Compendium Extraordinaire

    Balloon Diaspora By: Jake Elliot Available: Free at Cardboard Computer Synopsis: Balloon Diaspora is a 3D point-and-click adventure game with music by Oliver Blank. Explore a foreign culture, make new friends and ride through the clouds in a hot air balloon. The music is also available for download under a Creative Commons license. More: This is a really nice game to just kick back with and explore what it has to offer. Jake Elliot is also working on Kentucky Route Zero which is one of my most anticipated games.
  5. Recently completed video games

    Just finished Silent Hill: Shattered Memories on Saturday. I went in expecting the "psychological profiling" thing to be a gimmick, but it ended up being completely awesome. Your choices affect everything from the clothes other characters wear, their dialogue, the way they feel about you, and even the clothes your character wears and choices that get laid out in front of you throughout the game. I'm thinking of doing a write-up about it where I'll compare and contrast it with Heavy Rain. (I know it's apples to oranges but I'm speaking strictly of the choice mechanic present in each title) I recommend it, even if you've never played a Silent Hill game before (the narrative is a "re-imagining" of the first game, so it's not the same canon). It has it's faults but the good things outweigh the bad.

  7. Imperial online!

  8. Imperial online!

  9. The threat of Big Dog

    Kicking autonomous machines is an important part of IS. You have to show them who's boss. o_O
  10. Thumb Association

    Things like this happen to me all the time, but I always forget them. Maybe we should all immediately come to this thread and post about it when it happens to us
  11. Wizaaaaaards!!

    Consider my mind sufficiently blown. Also, scarred for life. I can listen to people's impressions of that man laughing, but the actual thing is traumatizing. And since this is the Wizard thread, here's an older one I forgot to post: Point of reference: Comic/Magazine subscription form, but I like to think it's a job application and they're asking me if I'm a Wizard.
  12. I will remix everything. EVERYTHING!!!

    Good to see you making a triumphant return! Triumphantly.
  13. Does anyone know if the panel will be broadcast on Ustream or a similar video streaming site? It'd be awesome if those of us who couldn't attend could watch it online today.
  14. The threat of Big Dog

    It doesn't help that the fucking thing sounds like a goddamn Manhack.
  15. Idle Thumbs PAX Panel Live Stream?

    If a room is in a Thumb, it's never a Wizard.
  16. This is for you. Time to die. This-this-this-this is for you. Dude, awesome job! Hahaha, hilarious. Mine pales in comparison.
  17. Goddamn, that was so good. I loved the Far Cry 2 story that Famous told at the end. Excellent!
  18. Idle Thumbs PAX Panel Live Stream?

    It's nice to see you guys got all those canon narrative podcast logistics worked out.
  19. Amnesia: The Dark Descent

    I don't know about anyone else, but the in the demo scared the crap out of me. Very well executed.
  20. Idle Thumbs PAX Panel Live Stream?

    Duke Nukem Forever: Framed Crochet Okay.
  21. Idle Thumbs PAX Panel Live Stream?

    I was hoping this was your reaction to Duke Nukem Forever because it was totally blowing you away
