  • I'm looking forward to System Shock Remastered — I missed that game when it was originally released and I know it was a cult classic favourite. Red Dead Redemption 2 is pretty likely in my future... though yeah, like @EchoGolfSierra , mostly catchin…
  • A friend of mine worked on the concept art for this; looking forward to playing it and seeing his work come alive. I've been thinking I can wait until the price goes down a bit though.
  • Recently finally finished Prey, Gears of War 4, X-COM 2, Halo Wars 2. I've got Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II, and Torment: Tides of Numenera as the next major games in line... ...but I've been messing around just trying out a lot of the …
  • Finally got to try it; it's a fun idea. In my first playthrough, I must have missed some of the clues to how to get to the cow level etc., so will try again.

  • 2017 was one of the worst years of my life (second only to the year before), unfortunately. My ex has been on a campaign of what they call "parental alienation" and vexatious litigation. I shouldn't say much more than that in a public forum, but it'…
  • Today's random beef is from the You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means Department. I'm getting tired of how often the media is misusing the word "chaos," and then other media blindly repeating those claims of said…
  • I decided to get the Necromancer; my reasoning is that I'm incredibly impressed with how much free content and updates Blizzard has kept making available for the game, so I'm happy to show my support for that. That said, I think most (if not all?) …

  • I just reinstalled Diablo III on Xbox One, and this "Seasons" thing is new to me... how does that work? And it seems like there's some way to get Pets?

  • Sad to hear about Carrie Fisher today. They found she had cocaine, methadone, heroin, ecstasy, prozac, amblify, lamictal & oxycodone in her system when she died. (that's without a "full" autopsy, which her family would not allow... because they …
  • Played a bit of Hawken on Xbox... but... free-to-play nonsense...
  • @Juxtapose said: For Bell in general, they're a large conglomerate who is funding and using their resources to establish funding for various mental health organizations. No corporation is going to do this though, no matter how noble the cause…
  • @wikkiwild1 said: In Deus Ex I can't even complete the 1st mission. I just can't get to the helicopter to stop it from taking off, I can only get half way there at best. Zing dies everytime! Hmm, I vaguely recall using the cloaking and runni…
  • [Listens to the political news on the radio.] [Computer turns on...] Wake up, Neo... The Matrix has you... Follow the white rabbit. Knock, knock, Neo. [Door opens] [Screams of terror]
  • Cheesecake is cake, and I know because I don't really like cake.
  • (In all honesty, I just lurk around here occasionally, and kept seeing "goal met, this year's funding complete" sort of messages... this year by chance I logged in just in time, it seems)

  • I don't think I've donated before so here's a modest donation when divided by 5 years.

  • But for all of that long post above, I do understand that @EchoGolfSierra original post was more about financials... (it's just that the "crash of 1983" always gets me for the reasons shown... haha.) I agree that the $100+ full versions of AAA game…
  • @TimothyWedel said: it's really fun. I spent a couple of hours with it already and gave it a spot on my front page of apps. I think so too... but it feels very familiar... like this game already existed, but they put a Pokemon skin on it? (A…
  • @TimothyWedel said: I think they mean that it was quiet in that they didn't announce anything beforehand. It was a surprise release. Honestly though, after Pokemon Go's insane amount of press, essentially all they had to do was make sure the…
  • You know, I just have to say it. About 90% of the advertising I see for Bell the last few years is during the #BellLetsTalk mental health awareness campaign. The not-so-covert Bell advertising bombards me not from the expected sources, but from my f…
  • I got a laugh from a Facebook headline saying "Nintendo quietly releases new Pokemon Duel game" when it's all over the headlines. I'm starting to think that using "quietly" in that manner in a headline is just clickbait wording? Oh, also, shhh: htt…
  • @Law212 said: The reason its not so popular today is that kids don't grow up with Nintendo and Mario anymore , they grow up with call of duty, god of war. Something that has been problematic, speaking of Mario, is controlling a 3D platformer…
  • @EchoGolfSierra said: So any of you under about 40 years of age are probably too young to remember this... But in about 1983 the gaming industry was worth around 3 Billion annually. Then the wheels fell off and industry revenues plummetted …
  • @WhorrorLoLz said: It was soooo not worth it. I'll definitely never do that shit again. I've no experience, AFAIK I have never had close friends into anything harder than pot -- and even that's only recently. (Alcohol is enough escape for me…
  • You also made me wonder what game has the first user level creation tools (other than RPGs). I was thinking perhaps Broderbund's Lode Runner. #threadhijacker
  • Well, the oldest RPG games would let you create your own characters, picking classes and skills and such, like Wizardry and Ultima and probably earlier ones... so you might need to define "customized" further...?
  • @TimothyWedel said: Everyone should watch/listen to this podcast by Kinda Funny with Gary Whitta who wrote the first draft of Rogue One. There is some really interesting information in there. Thanks so much Tim! Watched it tonight. I have Ga…
  • I liked Rogue One. I bet it was far closer to what old-school Star Wars fans wanted to see compared to the prequels. But when you think about it, there have been 5 Star Wars movies (taking place after the prequel trilogy)... ...4 out of 5 of them …
