    Nintendo Switch

    Steam has added support for the Switch Pro controller: https://steamcommunity.com/games/353370/announcements/detail/1648757912601251834
  2. Probably the wrong thread for this, as it's not Steam, but... if anyone has Amazon Prime, you automatically get access to Twitch Prime, which is giving away a decent set of games to keep each month, Humble Monthly-style. This month they have: Steamworld Dig 2 (excellent) Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale adventure, and a rare, actually funny game) Tokyo 42 (fantastic art style, no idea how it plays though) Kingsway (if Windows 95 was an RPG: was on my wishlist due to this review) DubWars (???) There's a Twitch client app you have to install t

    I’m ready and so is mid-level sub boss
  4. Couple more spare keys from the Humble Monthly, PM me: Civilization VI Tomb Raider (2013)
  5. Happy new year, all. My resolution this year - the RLLMUK Steam thread as my witness - is not to buy any PC games for the next 12 months. (My backlog has gone beyond "shameful" to "actively immoral".) I've unsubscribed from all bundle / offer / sale emails, set Steam to go straight to my library, and (fingers crossed) I'm good to go. I'm still subscribed to Humble Monthly, as I prepaid for 12 months last year, which I'm hoping will scratch enough of the new-games-itch to make it bearable. All of which is by way of saying, this will be my last duplicate Steam key giveaway for a whil

    Nintendo Switch

    Don't know if this will be any help, but I redeemed mine on a Wii U and linked the Nintendo accounts, which merged the money over to the Switch account. (It had to be on the Wii U itself, I couldn't redeem it online for some reason.) Or if you have a 3DS, would be worth a shot on there? EDIT: ignore me, just saw BossSaru's post, I didn't try mine directly on the Switch, and sounds like that should work

    Nintendo Switch

    Let it here be noted that on this, the twenty-eighth day of December in the year of our Lord 2018, after 20 years of playing Mario Kart in various forms, I FINALLY managed to deflect a blue shell. I might print out a certificate.

    Well-regarded supernatural adventure game Oxenfree is currently free on GOG.
  9. Couple of spare keys from this bundle, PM if you want one: abstract rhythm-platformer 140, and isometric sci-fi horror point-and-clicker Stasis.
  10. A study looking at how gender affects the kind of verbal abuse people get in games (specifically Halo 3 multiplayer):

    The Valve Thread

    He left a while ago, and is now working at Bossa Studios. According to Wikipedia:
  12. Agreed, loved the especially. A bit of a coincidence was that I was talking with friends about the trolley problem earlier in the week, and experiments asking what people would do in various permutations of it (I'd just listened to a RadioLab episode about it), and one of my friends suggested that people should be put in a VR simulation of it to see what they would really do. Anyway if there is a better moral philosophy-based sitcom around at the moment I would like to hear about it.
  13. While I'm sure that Humble being sold to IGN will be nothing short of a complete success, just in case it isn't I thought I'd better get rid of my unused Steam keys. PM me if you want one and are at least a semi-regular poster. Good and/or popular-seeming games: Rise of the Tomb Raider Stories Untold The Walking Dead: Season 1 Offworld Trading Company Pillars of Eternity Wuppo Kentucky Route Zero SUPERHOT Undertale The Swapper Thirty Flights of Loving VVVVVV Steamworld Heist Others, spoilered

    The Witness

    Where you see a bug, I see a feature. It certainly allows - even encourages - you to assume a puzzle-type is obeying a simple rule where a more complex rule is actually the case. Typically you come across a puzzle that contradicts the simple rule, and then you need to construct a rule that satisfies both the new puzzle and the old ones, and experiment. The maze puzzles are one kind of challenge in the game; working out the rules for the mazes is the higher-order challenge, and that for me is what the game is about.

    The Witness

    The last few posts seem to be missing what I thought was the whole point of the game. There's not a single instruction in the game, and everything you learn is through induction; part of the puzzle of the game is questioning the assumptions you have made along the way, which I think it does brilliantly. It's a game about inductive reasoning, not the kind of deductive reasoning you would use to fill in a crossword.
  16. I'm really enjoying this, and don't have much else to add except to say that every time Chidi says "What?!" I *will* laugh. I feel the same kind of warmth to the characters as I did in Parks & Rec. I read somewhere that the writers have the first 3 seasons plotted, so I am intrigued to see where they take it. re spoilers:
  17. Not sure about the best, but the third best is Boars, Gore, and Swords - two American stand-ups recap each episode. It's more of an entertaining review of each episode rather than the kind of in-depth plot analysis you'd get from Cast of Kings, and obviously funny is in the eye of the beholder, but I really like it.
  18. Apparently I have a spare Steam key for SpeedRunners - first person to PM me can have it. Gone to @ilpostino
  19. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Galactic Civilizations 3 SimplePlanes Armello Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter Kero Blaster Hyper Light Drifter 2000:1: A Space Felony Next month early unlocks are NBA2K17 and Pillars of Eternity. (I seem to have got two keys for NBA - did this happen to anyone else?)
  20. No, it's usually obvious what you do next, due to both how it's all laid out and the camera will occasionally subtly point you in the right direction if there's something important to notice. Great game, I'd recommend going in knowing as little as possible about it. For purchasing decisions, know that you'll complete it in about 3 hours, and I don't think they'll be any particular value in replaying it, if that's a factor.
  21. I've bought a couple: Pinball FX2 VR - I'll just say that I'm sure the Mars table is great for people who can cope with spiders constantly in their peripheral vision - and Thumper, a rhythm action game, which is excellent so far and looks really good in VR. (Both seated games, not room-scale) Job Simulator is fun for a couple of hours, and a good demo to show new people to get used to the controllers etc. It's my kids' VR game of choice when they get the chance.
  22. Might be a temporary glitch, but I got to the end of my discovery queue and got 13 summer sale trading cards - worth a go if you want the badge / pennies?
  23. Oh, I enjoyed it - I never said I was any good at it though! It's one of those games I played for a week, enjoyed it a lot - it's super tense for a turn-based game - and then either life or another game intervened and I would now have to relearn it. I keep meaning to go back to it though!
  24. I have some spare Steam keys to give away, but I've noticed recently keys are tending to be snaffled by lurkers. So I hope people don't think I'm being too arsey, but to restrict it to active rllmukers these are only available to those who have EITHER at least 100 posts OR at least 100 reputation OR are a supporter / donor. Requests via PM, one per person please. I've bolded my favourites: 2064: Read Only Memories 7 Grand Steps ABZU AI War: Fleet Command Beat Hazard Ultra Beyond Eyes Chroma Squad Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble Day of
