    Tiny games

    Mixolumia is one that I'm going to pick up, nice little spin on Tetris and is half price on Steam atm.
  2. It's got that weird stickiness from the looks of it, you see when Sonic runs off a platform he's just suddenly there on the platform below. It's like they're terrified of using real physics and so you're probably not going to get much genuine momentum. It's a shame how serious this feels as well, I'd love a similar open-world with giant Bee Bot's and Motobugs, scale them up and you could have some really interesting encounters. The world theme being a mishmash of this and the classic tiles could really work as well. This though just looks charmless.
  3. It's probably due to having a family now, they were on about returning to the office in the podcast so I can imagine that'd be a massive strain when you have 2 small kids.
  4. So Reedus said something that more or less confirmed Death Stranding 2, Kojima posted this image in response.
  5. I was really surprised by that video, the amount of effort that's gone into those locations is crazy, I came in expecting to be "wtf" but I'm now genuinely a little hyped.
  6. I've watched Giantbomb from years and years ago and recently I started listening to the podcasts - seems pretty good to me. Gerst was always the favorite but I like a lot of the others like Tamoor, Bakalar and Lucy. JeffJeff's Bizarre Adventure is amazing and all I look forward to nowadays. Gerst will be missed but I wouldn't kill off GB just yet.
  7. With the absence of Balrog AND Bison my two usual picks I don't know. Ehonda looks pretty smart in this design and I want to see what's up with the cane dude.
  8. Only you know what you want to do, so I don't think anyone can decide what you should play.
  9. Very crazy "leak" of characters, probably legit and spoils entire roster:
  10. Yakuza with SF combat is something I'm definitely down for! The commentary thing made me wtf - but actually I've warmed to it and if they provide enough voicelines so that it doesn't get repetitive; it will really add to your games and let you feel like a top level player without the need to devote your life. I don't know if they're using it but there's *very* good tech to simulate people's voice out there now; so they could potentially get some big names signed up for it for relatively little recording work and still provide a crazy amount of lines. Surprisingly hyped!
  11. I think for entertaining me for over a decade. Easy to take for granted but it's a humongous effort to create a game that's challenging but has an infinite amount of options. Edit: Binding of Isaac
  12. I must have a dozen different versions of the originals throughout the years. For me the real value that catches my eye is the bonuses that're locked away. Because it's a cheap DLC too - gives the impression that there's not much to it. They've kind of unsold themselves, greed has just done nothing but made the product less appetising as a whole. Even ignoring my hatred for this style of nickel and diming, separating the extras has taken away the Illusion that this is a definitive edition and instead shows it to be what it is; some nice little additions. Would have been more sold if they just had the top tier version.

    Episode 44 is where I've started enjoying it again.
  14. 🕹 High Score Day #25 - https://highscoreday.com Apart from the first I was pretty comfortable with that

    Completely understand why I gave up on season 3, the opening episodes felt very contrived with heavy exposition about stuff we weren't really too interested in. And not organic in any way. They could have done a lot better with what they had. Gonna carry on but man they wasted the introduction what could have been a very cool character.

    Re-watching AoT and season 1 is still amazing, but season 2 is also a banger which definitely wasn't what I took away originally. I gave up in season 3 but now I reckon I might enjoy it more now. It's strange how the more you know - the better the show seems to be on repeat viewings.
  17. The Dectus medallion... Not useful if you've been to the destination a million times. I kind of thought it'd take me somewhere new, I was so disappointed although I bet it's pretty epic if you've not been there before.
  18. Godskin Apostle in Caelid is hard, anyway he's down. Got a real Sen's Fortress vibe from that tower which is refreshing. It was fun messing around with spells to push enemies off.
  19. Radahn down... Very epic but a little easy which I wasn't expecting, sort of regretting summoning the people. Maybe next playthrough I'll head to him early on.
  20. It's one of the Beastial Arts.
  21. I get the feeling this guard may have a bad day.* *My new favorite thing to do, launch boulders as high as possible in the air and watch them come down and squash the unfortunate soul that's standing under it. It's actually addictive!

    Re-watching Attack on Titan, dropped it during the 2nd season (maybe the beginning of season 3) but I'm gonna give it a good try this time. Season 1 is just so good though, up to the Trost battle and badass Erin is amazing to see. Plus the knowledge you gain in the future somehow adds on to the enjoyment in a way I didn't expect.
  23. It's good, loved the first episode but it dropped a little too much exposition in the second. Felt like unnatural signposting. I wish it kept a few secrets from us; Wanda dipped once we knew everything and I hope this doesn't do the same. It could even be a good thing and they've established it so they get to focus on the story of the arc more - only time will tell.
