    FTL - Faster than light

    107 hours in and I don't think I'm ever going to finish it. Today was the closest I ever got. Everything went improbably well. Then the final boss comes back to life looking like THIS? and obviously I had no opportunity to repair. I can't think of any other game that I find this compelling, yet makes me so utterly miserable. I hate it. I hate the way I feel playing this game. I hate its unfairness and rubber band AI. But will I ever learn to recognise that I don't enjoy the game, uninstall it and never play it again like I managed to do with civ? Doubt it.

    Shrek retold

    200 people have remade shrek. It's odd. Some of it is incredible. Some of it is not. Overall a lot better than our robocop remake. Trailer and full film below. Highlights for me are rat boy genuis' bit, and David liebe hart singing. Trailer - Full film - https://youtu.be/pM70TROZQsI

    "'The real Super Mario' dies aged 84"

    Here's a great article on the BBC - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-46072339?fbclid=IwAR2S8-caPnldxVwegtuXzXVGhcMylUl_XyW0bv1cP7HsI6Lg3j9G3xnI-Vg He wanted to be known for what he accomplished in life, not having super mario named after him. Unfortunately, we decided not to mention any of those accomplishments and wrote about super mario instead. It's the exact opposite of what he, and his loved ones would want!

    Is it not a stealthy kill people ridiculous history game any more? I really didn't get on with the stanley parable. Found it way too pretentious, ironic, sarcastic and abusive. I may give it another chance in a year or so though for the sake of getting that 5 years of not playing achievement (I can see when someone bought me it, but not when I last played it)

    I've never played an assassin's creed, that really doesn't seem like my kind of thing at all! I've never played a dragon quest! I don't think I want to play a JRPG right now, but maybe later? I'm simulataneously put off and attracted to those bright cartoony graphics. It seems a bit tonally dissonant - but then my favourite JRPG is skies of arcadia, so if it's anything like that that'd be marvelous. Yes seems precisely the kind of thing I want to play right now! Bought!

    I really want to play some kind of adventure at the moment. Like the witcher 3, skyrim or zelda. But that I haven't played before. Something I can get really lost in, you know? Tempted by dark souls 3 but that's all combat. Have you any advice? Here's my games list https://steamcommunity.com/id/moonible/games/?tab=a

    Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

    Right, so "I need to wash myself again, to hide all the dirt and pain 'cause I'd be scared that there's nothing underneath". If you were scared that there was nothing underneath the dirt wouldn't that make you want to avoid washing?

    Socketeer: My New Game Inspired By Paradroid and Spelunky

    Glitch report! (Steam version). When you pick up an item from a chest, and you need to press a to pick it up with the a button... You can press the a button repeatedly for infinite of whatever was in the bag. To be clear I open a chest, receive a bomb bag I press a to pick it up , I keep pressing a and I keep getting bomb bags. It stops when something else prompts me to press a , but until then it's infinite bombbags

    Best New Music of 2018

    Hey, don't know what month these came out in but there aren't any posts talking about my favourite albums of the year so far Rival consoles - super-synth, with rich soundscapes but also structure. A little bit like boards of canada and similar, but I think he does have a pretty unique sound Nils Frahm - All Melody- This is one of those where someone has spent a lot of time exploring the textures of sounds rather than being super melodic. I can understand how people would find this a bit boring, but personally I find it enchanting

    Are games fun?

    I just bought the witness, so I can tell you that, no, games are not fun.

    Thinking of getting one major game and one puzzler type thing. So how overrated and pretentious Is the witness in the scheme of things? And is it fairly self contained or is it a bit "Oh you need to keep notes and decipher a new language I invented and cross reference that with the autobiography of a biologist who my ex girlfriend really admired to truly appreciate the vision of my arty game"?

    Posting in here because people get upset when I bump old threads to call the games they're about shit : Borderlands?? I'm two hours in and is this it? Receive quest from cardboard cut-out character, shoot enemies until their HP bar runs out, collect weapons, walk around a featureless arid wasteland, shake my head at developer's piss-poor juvenile attempts at humour? So far very confused at how this got good reviews and became popular. It's like PSO minus the nice visuals, story, setting, and music.

    West of Loathing

    Hey does it also bother you that there's now a serious drama series called "sneaky pete" and nobody seems to mention that?

    Does anyone use synthmaster and make your own voices with it? I am finding the presets absolutely great but if I want to do anything with them it's totally incomprehensible to me.
