  1. Yeah I don't have or want one, so I'm out of luck. Was hoping it'd come out on PC. Alas.
  2. Nuts & Bolts WAS great and it's still a huge shame how much shit it got. I'd buy it again. Never did finish it. Got rid of my 360 before I could. But also good luck with that haha.
  3. There is no backward compatability. Nintendo does rereleases/remasters all the time, but nobody knows how likely it is Galaxy would be one of them. Virtual Console is a thing that doesn't exist yet but will probably(?) roll out next year with their full online service. Whatever that entails. Sales happen, but they're not one dollar for twenty game sales like Steam.
  4. They already have a season pass for Rabbids, so there's gonna be dlc. Death squares is pretty good but will have you yelling at your friends!!! NO DO THIS NO DO THAT

    grumble grumble no one watching concrete revolutio grumble grumble grumble grumble gorm always pestering me to write more in this thread grumble grumble i just finished space battleship yamato 2199, here's some random thoughts i wrote down in evernote just now (bolded stuff is the most important - one being my biggest complaint (sort of), and the other being my biggest anti-complaint (not sort of, absolutely, 100%, best thing ever)): my fav episode is the one with the gamilan robot and analyzer becoming friends and then the newly named "alter" being killed by analyzer at the very end because he's gone what amounts to dangerously insane and since he's a robot it's okay to kill him. ): i'm a HUGE sucker for ai being people and this was executed very strongly i think. and then they never did anything with it again! why! hell, even analyzer barely shows up from that point on, except as a drinking buddy for drunk doctor. i wonder if it was like this in the original series. like maybe it was more throwaway, and they made it better here, and then because they were trying to stay faithful to the original material, they never touched on it again. i don't understand norran's motivations by the end. he kidnaps mori because they think she's the iscandarian. okay, fine. he's loyal to gamilas. okay, fine. he takes her to gamilas and then is assigned as her protection and whatever. then she's nice to him so he... saves her? i guess? it's weird, i don't buy it all. yamato ship damage should've/could've been permanent. like battle scars i mean. how they gonna repaint the ship even if they repair. they used a 3d model so it should've been easy to just keep adding scars. bit of a bummer, but oh well. the female uniforms are awful. truly awful. the iscandarian robots are goofy as hell! that walk cycle!! there is a literal goddamn space submarine that dives into subspace and has a periscope that pokes out of subspace and fires torpedoes out of subspace. INCREDIBLE. series should've been one or two episodes shorter... like why did we need to see goer's rebel fleet wiped out? why did we need to see desler survive yet another obvious and unavoidable death? is he dead for real this time?! just feels like they stretched it out for some reason. which, i am told, this is an ova so they had however any episodes they wanted and didn't need to do 26. i dunno weirdddddddd. and then we got ghost older kodai, whose soul is i guess in the cosmo reverser. thinking about it more, the last episode was real good so i'll accept what happened. overall, though i fucking loved it. to be honest, i'd even say it fits comfortably alongside a lot of my favorite western sci-fi series. much of the same tropes and plot patterns. i mean that very positively, too. but i'm a unique butterfly when it comes to sci-fi tastes, maybe, probably not actually, but whatever.
  6. Stargate

    Yeah it was definitely aping BSG a lot. Which is why at the time I hated season one. season two felt more like "What I Want From Stargate". I assume that by the time I'd rewatched the entire series I was more open to something Different, hence my opinion shift. Wish I had a roommate to rewatch the series with. Again. Man.
  7. Well you did say you "have never clicked with any golf games ever". I'm glad you like it! I finished it already 'cause I'm homestuck. The upper right corner contains an arrow displaying the slope of the green once you get there. You mostly just need to get a feel for what that means through experimentation. If you do the minigolf thing in the starting course, you get a special putter that lets you curve. It makes putting way harder.
  8. Stargate

    First time I watched SGU I hated the first season and loved the second. Second time I watched it, I flipped. Well, I still liked the second season, just not as much. I'm not sure what happened there, but yeah. I'm still bummed it never ended.
  9. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    *raises fists in the air* So when do we play!!!
  10. Stargate

    DARK MATTER GOT CANCELLED EVEN THOUGH IT WAS POPULAR BECAUSE SYFY SUCKS When I was watching it as it came out, RDA leaving was a huuuuuge bummer to me, but fuck if it didn't deliver in spades. It's still no Farscape, but damn. There aren't many long-running TV series I'd buy because they're expensive to collect, but Stargate remastered for Blu-Ray would be pretty tempting for me. D:
  11. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    I also like L4D2's levels a lot; you're not alone! But I do think they're not as good as the first game. That's all!
  12. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    But then I have to play as the infected which, when I'm out of practice, just means I get insta-killed the second anyone knows I'm there. I played a lot of versus. A lot. It's cool when everyone's at the same level, as you tend to grow together, too, so eventually you're actually having solid balanced matches against each other. But when teams are even slightly off balance it's a complete stomp and it's utterly boring for the losing team.
  13. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    I don't care about VS because it's competitive. I like coop because I enjoy cooperating with other people to overcome obstacles. The reason Turtle Rock wasn't bought out by Valve is because the people at Turtle Rock didn't want to move. Valve tried.
  14. Yeah I'm finally gonna play Axiom Verge when it's released. Completely agree the indie scene is fucking good. It's been a huge saving grace for me, as I continue to recover from my busted leg. Other indie games I liked recently: Steamworld Dig 2 (very solid sequel to the first game, better and better) Mighty Gunvolt Burst (apparently it's the Mighty No 9 everyone wanted, as it's legit a remake, plus you can play as different characters) Thimbleweed Park (though I'd recomend PC, as the controls leave something to be desired on Switch, why couldn't they implement faux-pointer controls, it would've worked so well! ron gilbert hire me i'll do it i know exactly how to make it work i've set it up on my steam controller more than once and it'd feel way better with a single switch joycon than the bulky steamtroller please thanks - lots of 4th wall jokes everywhere, many references to past adventure games) Slime-san (very competent platformer with 100 short levels, multiple styles of play, didn't mess with NG+ which apparently remixes them, but maybe I'll go back some day - the weird pillarboxing is weird and I'm not a fan, but it's all right... also it can be a bit buggy, i got legit stuck sometimes and had to restart the level, but it didn't happen often) Retro City Rampage DX (finally got around to it, eh? it's all right as a game, it's got some... problematic shit from time to time, but is mostly just REFERENCE REFERENCE REFERENCE, the main villain is doctor buttnik ffs, also it has a Rad Racer segment which is like, that's THE racing game i played as a kid, and it sure hit me a nostalgia note) Lichtspeer (while i like this, it is kinda... repetitive, and i'm not sure it'll hold up long term for me, but i might treat it as a game i just poke my head into every now and then) GoNNER (pretty fun roguelike, and it's a pure roguelike, you can unlock some different weapons/backpacks, but rogue legacy this ain't, also got some cool style to it) Non-indie: Mario + Rabbids (I think i've said enough about this in places) Disgaea 5 (never played a disgaea before, man there's a lot of systems, and they're fun if confusing to engage with, haven't beaten it, took a break once i got home to play persona 5, i'll get back to it some day for sure)
