  1. 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.
  2. 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)
  3. It's a golf RPG. Stats. Quests. Equipment. Story. Exactly what it says on the tin! It's pretty funny too. If you don't like golf video games you won't like this.
  4. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    I've never understood it myself, mechanics-wise. Although level-wise I mostly prefer the original's set.
  5. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    I'd play versus, but personally I would like to get really into the coop as my primary L4D2 experience.
  6. Golf Story came out today. It's like Mario Golf: Advance Tour. The GBA one, that's an RPG, made by Camelot. I've been excited since I saw the first tidbit of it during one of the Nintendo Directs. I've played about an hour, and it's exactly what I wanted. SO YEAH GOLF STORY WOOOOOOO
  7. Left 4 Thumbs - The Homethumbing 2

    Yeah when I played the first game I had a group that basically only played together and always played together, and we moved up from the easiest difficulty to the hardest, slowly but surely, and dominated the game. Then L4D2 came out and we put a lot of time into that but not as much, and I never got to play it as much as I personally wanted. I'd love to repeat that experience, but no one seems to want to make tha tlong commitment to getting better. Not that I blame anyone. Time is hard. I have it easy 'cause I'm a loner and a loser.
  8. Stargate

    The show is completely different from the movie. It takes the events and then goes off the rails the movie had set. It's the best of the Star____ series. *nod*
  9. I really wanna try it but I'd have to buy it on the Microsoft store and I'm still hesitant to do that. U:
  10. anime

    FINISHED IT! it did not turn out shit! i'm not a huge fan of the ending, though. not SHIT but could've been better. still, i don't believe a subpar ending can retroactively make the previous stuff bad (at least not always). i still recommend it if anything i've said sounds good to you. something worth calling out that i didn't mention above: the show features "superhumans". what that means in this specific case is... EVERYTHING. demons, people who can turn giant, mechs, ghosts, robot satellites that respond to and are powered by cries for help, cyborg cops, magical girls, etc, etc, etc. these are disparate concepts and wildly varying art styles that bones somehow successfully made work. nothing seems out of place. everything melts together into a sublime soup of superpowers. hell if i know how they managed it. another thing: because the show takes place over a long period of time, jumping back and forth through time, there are many many times when people shift allegiances. alliances form and dissipate in what seems like minutes but is actually literally years within the show's timeline. it's cool!!! i think. it's also worth repeating what i said above about that being its biggest flaw. but also i think it's one of its biggest strengths. it makes it interesting. not to say it's for everyone, but i... kinda liked it, even while i hated it. it's a complex show. it's very hard to follow. it requires serious work to fully understand the flow of events. if i were a less lazy man i honestly would've written down the timing of events to help me understand better. i'm not, though. i might some day. or i suppose i could find where someone else has done that on the internet. also in the process of writing this post i think i might dislike the ending less. i think it was kind of a copout in that it... makes a lot of events throughout the show feel kind of... it brings them to a head that ends before the face. (what.) on the other hand, it absolutely jives with many of the themes presented throughout the show. so... there's that! anyway i like it please watch it so i have someone to talk to thanks.
  11. Stargate

    Wait what is this Origins series?! There's new STARGATE????!??! I love Stargate. All of it. Except the original movie. I mean, it's not bad, but it's not why I love Stargate. Wait is this new thing based on the movie?
  12. I loved Rabbids. I am also completely shocked I didn't hate the rabbids! The game was so fun! As mentioned above, the movement mechanics really made the game shine. I did find it fairly easy, though. I got a perfect for nearly every fight. I think I didn't get a perfect for... three battles? All in the last world, and one of them the final boss. I am unsure I'll go back for any DLC they release, though. By the time that stuff comes out even more games will exist on the system. On that note, I'm glad it came out now 'cause otherwise I almost certainly would've skipped it in lieu of all the other things I'll be able to play in, say, six months. And then I would've missed out! By the end, my fav team was Rabbid Luigi and Rabbid Mario. Up closeand personal. Rabbid Luigi dashes around setting up vamp on everyone closeby, Mario and Rabbid Mario wreck shop and heal any damage from the previous round. Heck yeah! That team didn't do so well on the last boss, though, so I did have to switch it up to regular Luigi and Rabbid Peach.
  13. anime

    guys i know concrete revolutio is a hard sell, it's fuckin "superheroes are everywhere", but it's good!! it deals a lot with discrimination and societal acceptance of that which is different. it also has a lot of parallels with real history events, like shitty ones, like human experiments, etc. and also it looks fucking good, and it's bones, so you KNOW it's got some great goddamn animation. it's biggest flaw is perhaps the way it jumps around in a very complicated timeline. it gives you dates, but if you're just watching the show passively it's real hard to keep up with the flow all the specific events. the broad strokes aren't hard to pick up, though. also a gay relationship was just revealed and it was not a big deal? that is, the show did not think it was a big deal. the manager/producer/whatever of the band she was in did. it was of a minor side character, though. it may be one of the most underrated series i've seen that said i'm not finished and maybe it turns to shit by the end i don't think that will happen though
  14. Oooh sorry I misunderstood. It does seem like a huge mistep they wouldn't put touch in a Wii U version, I agree.
  15. The Wii U is dead. I don't think anyone is going to be making anything significant for it from this point on.
  16. xenoblade looks to have the same combat so i will definitely be staying as far away as i can from it, it's... not for me... at all octopath looks and sounds fucking great so i'm stoked for that mario continues to be perfect i don't really care about anything else they showed besiddes a few indie games (golf story is apparently coming out this month heck yes!!!) well surprisingly that 3ds kirby game piqued my interest, but i'll never turn on my 3ds again so eh
  17. Socialism

    Your country is doomed.
  18. Socialism

    It's convenient to ignore when socialism or socialistic methods succeed to make a point about socialism never working.
  19. If Wario and Waluigi aren't in this game it is the worst game ever.
  20. I watched the first episode of Defenders, and then instead watched the third season of iZombie. I'll probably still go back, but... I'm not enthused. I hate Danny Rand so fucking much. I only sorta like Daredevil, whatever his name is. I hated Luke Cage in Jessica Jones, loved him for most of his show, and now I'm pretty ambivalent. I'm exhausted by the nurse, at this point. Still enjoy Jessica's schtick, though.
  21. The number one reason to play Chrono Cross is that it's better than Trigger.
