  1. This is scary! I'm using that as a focus button, is that right? i don't want to be getting into any bad habits. I've no fucking idea what's going on. Was it stanshall that said he wanted to change his name to "max buzz chain" by deed poll? He's funny!
  2. Works fine on windows 7 according to friendly cat on steam - https://steamcommunity.com/app/998990/discussions/0/1780513570969754930/
  3. Ugh. Another negging. I've probably got more dresses in my wardrobe than Illyria. I'm sure Delaney King didn't have to hand in her sense of humour along with her CV. I'm sure this was a well intentioned thread to begin with but considering it's long since degenerated into the twitter-sponsored saint olympics, is it time it was shipped off to off-topic along with the rest of the forums embarrassments? Fucking morons.
  4. Oh, right. I don't think I was being rude or patronising. I had to really think about a franchise I disliked, and it was more to do with a small toxic proportion of the fanbase than the games themselves.
  5. While I don't like the idea of saving my controversial opinions for the designated "safe" thread with the wipe down seat covers, it's reassuring to see the babyman poop flying regardless.
  6. Crysis. Someone on the cardiacs forum convinced me to drop all the settings as low as they'd go and play it as a stealth game. Mind blown. I don't think I've ever gone from actively hating to loving a game so much.
  7. If I'm not enjoying a game, I'll just delete it and move on. Often I'll see something being discussed in the switch thread and really have to rack my brains as to why I sacked it off, often I'll just say nowt as I can't remember! I don't think I hate or dislike any games or franchises, it's more that I just dislike the way AAA gaming has gone in general over the last ten years and have just opted out of it entirely at this point, it's all just boring, bland, dumbed down, homogenised shite and I don't think that can be blamed on any specific franchise. Tomb raider is a good example, I can't say I hate that franchise because it used to be great and I had so much fun playing those games but now it's just "the game", the same game everycunt else is making. Dead Space is another good example, an excellent survival horror game sanded down out of existence, turned into a bland third person shooter by cunts in suits. Far Cry started out really fun and crysis was the spiritual sequel, which, although still much maligned for being seen as nothing more than a benchmarking tool for future hardware, the actual gameplay was really good fun. I mean, I could go on. I think I might adopt that as my new catchphrase! Hang on, I might have one! Those hardcore gamers playing dark souls, swaggering around telling people to "git gud"? Get bent. Don't confuse perseverance and trial and error with skill. You completed dark souls? Oh good, now do it in realtime without credit feeding. Would be interesting to see some numbers on which die-hard dark souls fans gave up on dead cells before beating the final boss.
  8. I've heard people say this before and have never understood it. In both instances, you're controlling the camera. I've never heard anyone say "I can't get on with a pad for shooting, it feels like I'm controlling a remote controlled car" It's fine to have a preference, but you just make yourself look like you have a total lack of imagination when you say something like that. Gamers are very good at learning new skills. Sorry, not in the spirit of the thread, I know.
  9. Aw man, that was going so well. 2 spellbinding hours utterly squandered.
  10. Not saying I disagree with what you're implying, but AAA refers to budget rather than quality, doesn't it?
  11. Just noticed this on the psyvariar steam page. FUCK my rotten corpse CUNT Fuck it all, I'm going to Belgium.
  12. Ugh, unless all of those A's stand for "arcade" this is gonna be more boring shit, isn't it? May as well go the whole hog and make a 3rd person, open world, story driven action adventure, buy the "Plankton Man" license and throw in some quicktime combat to seal the deal. Rllmuks game of the year 2020. The nondescript, bloated, fat, daft knacker corpse of gaming drifts away on a sea of idiot piss and indifference. See ya!
  13. What what what? Other known project? I not known nuffink!
  14. Yes, I took the opportunity to hint that he might be on the wrong page, I thought it'd be less rude than just stating it outright. Are we all feeling alright today? I'm getting weird vibes.
  15. Any advance (wars) on approximately 3? Going once ... twice ... three times a lady ...
  16. Well would you mind toning it up a little bit, darling? I forgot you were here. Divvent be daft, it's how real men bond, I've seen it on the telly. Vn1x does the same to me, he'll take it as a joke. You're right though, it's a lovely thread, I'll comb my hair all nice and go back and sit in the audience on my bestest behaviour. Boo! Get neg on!
  17. Thinking about it, I have my own daft genre classifications. "Top down shooters" and "twin stick shooters" are distinct from each other in my mind depending on whether they play better with a control pad or mouse and keyboard. Nuclear throne, top down Enter the gungeon, twin stick monolith, top down Rush Rover, twin stick leap of fate, top down nex machina, twin stick Binding of Isaac, one stick, four buttons assault android cactus, twin stick. I mean, I could go on. Maybe there should be a separate thread for our inane comments? I feel like I've wandered on stage and pissed myself during the changeover. Nice to see "Boozy", the forums live-in eunuch having his moment in the sun there* *I'm assuming this is ghost-moderator approved banter rather than straight up trolling cuntery? More than happy to replace it with some safety in numbers neg bullying if it'll save me getting banned for a month.
  18. That's another game where you don't remember the framerate being THAT bad when you fire it up nowadays. Knights of The sky is another, I loved that game so much, played it nearly every day for ages and the framerate was definitely part of the experience. It felt like you were slowing the whole world down and just getting lost in your imagination, because it was back when you still had to use it for games like that. Just big blocks and dots, flat angular clouds. I don't think I've mastered any game.
  19. You know what? You're probably right, it's time to drop the old definitions. Language changes over time, if enough people misuse a word, the ones using it properly end up being the ones misusing it. Roguelike just means procedural generation and permadeath now, and "bullet hell" means any game in any genre where there might be more than one bullet on the screen at some point.
  20. You just talked yourself out of a gobble, young man. Not aiming this at anyone in particular and I hate to be a pedant, but I see people using the term roguelike when they mean roguelite all the time on this site. The most commonly accepted definition of what constitutes a pwoper wogueLIKE - http://www.roguebasin.com/index.php?title=Berlin_Interpretation If in doubt ask yourself "Is it top down, is it grid based, is it turn based" if the answer is no, it'll be a rogueLITE. It still might be a roguelite if it's all of these things, but if it's not, it won't be. Now if you could all purposefully keep using the term roguelike just to get on my tits, that'd be swell.
  21. Oh god, you might be right. I shouldn't be so surprised. When you're not being blinded by voxels and amazing gameplay, that's what their games look like! I love the look of nex machina and the sparse, coloured in vectrex look of resogun, but you're right about the voxels, once you've gone "oooooh" a few times it would be nice to be able to turn them off. On nex machina, after you've chinned the end of level boss, there's a big explosion and the screen fills with voxels and you have to keep moving, trying to find a clean bit of the screen so you can see the decreasing circles around your character and properly time the end of level dash bonus. I know you and others find that game hard to read, I think I just got lucky, after 30 minutes or so, I could somehow blind myself to the chaos and see through all the mess. I remember people in the thread going "wow, this looks like a mess" and I remember reassuring them going "don't worry, after 30 minutes, you only see the things you need to see" but I don't think that's true of everyone. Shame they have so many mouths to feed and don't want to drop any staff until it's totally necessary. Like others have said, thinning out their numbers, turning a few lights off, they had enough of a loyal following to keep them going, concentrate on getting some of their stuff on the switch, make an exa port and see how that goes. It didn't have to end this way!
  22. https://steamcommunity.com/app/891790/discussions/0/2521353993653501584/ I've only played it for 8 hours according to steam, so it mustn't have grabbed me as hard as some other games but I remember enjoying Angerforce: reloaded. Coming soon to switch. Another vote for dragon blaze, in the meantime, it's hard as nails but I really like that one.
