Has he consistently posted bad stuff over the years? Iirc he was stridently anti gamergate and then clueless about biology. We're not talking some right wing provocateur here.

He's literally using alt-right terminology in the tweet posted by moosegrinder, so either he's massively, massively ignorant or that's where he is politically aligned. His frequent use of it would lead me to believe the former. 

 

I wasn't comparing the acts, just saying it's OK to like the creative output of a person without dying on a hill for them. A more apt comparison probably would have been the Oddworld games, despite Lorne Lanning being a 9/11 truther.

It is getting OT, but I do want to say I don't think anyone's dying on a hill, just to slow down on the hate. When you post this:

Good, another reason to say fuck Jonathan Blow. The whiny right wing misogynist. I hope everyone plays his game wrong and he has another melt down.

 

I'd expect it more than thinking the reason more men then women are interested in tech is biological rather than sociological. A tweet which was then deleted because of the offense it caused. I'm not saying he hasn't posted dumb stuff on twitter, or even people shouldn't boycott his games if they want to, of course they can, just that the eagerness to hate someone for being far right happened very quickly and I don't see the justification for that being the case. Additionally, is the alt-right terminology you refer to 'far left' ? Because that's used by shitloads of people on twitter, mainly arch centrists. I've got friends who've used that term, and they certainly aren't alt-right.

 

I wouldn't die on a hill for Jonathan Blow, but I wouldn't rush to hate him either. He's just tweeted some stupid stuff.

This is getting a bit off topic but sadly, bad ideas about genetics and gender also exist independently of the alt-right derposphere which has adopted them.

Exactly, the transphobia in the UK crosses political lines, not that what Blow posted comes anywhere near that.

Also, smart, not especially social person who got successful enough to spend far, far too much time alone in a house with their money and on the internet.

Yes you idiot, no-one was vaccinated more than 6 months ago so "At least six months" is the best we can say.

Volunteers have been vaccinated for nearly a year now.

Never parsed this as "Fez has been released on the Switch" which is amazing news!

Bizarrely I just dug out my PS3 yesterday to mop up any PSN redownloads I needed and Fez has been top of my reasons why. I’ve been keen to replay it for aaages and I don’t think it’s backwards-compatible on the X1 even. 
 

Now release Braid pls.

It’s completely insane to me that they hurried it’s release in the montage part of the Indie World video at the end. Whilst I know it’s a re-release of an “old” game it seems like it’ll do great if most knew it was released.

 

Sounds silly to say it but maybe the Indie World had too many games in it :lol:

It was a bit weird, eh! I'm looking forward to playing it and not completing it again. I do enjoy it.

 

Overall getting a bit nostalgic for the golden days of XBLA now after seeing @moosegrinder (I think!) on Bastion the other day. I bought it for pennies ages ago then promptly forget about it. Much as I regret inadvertently starting the Blow snowball I still want Braid, and Symphony of the Night and maybe a Geometry Wars pls.

Yeah it was a couple of quid in the current sale, so I got that and transistor. Bargain for the combined price of 6 quid odd. I mean it's not like I own Bastion 3 times already...

How are  Bastion or Transistor on the Switch? Both are pretty cheap and as they are made by the same people as Hades, they have piqued my interest.

 

However, are they quite similar to Hades? I'm probably going to get that in the second half of the year, but don't want to burn out on similar games before then.

Not played any of their others, but I came away from Bastion pretty underwhelmed. Lovely visuals and overall aesthetic, but something about it left me feeling a little cold. Perfectly fine game, but didn't quite understand the buzz I had heard about it for so many years.

I've not played Bastion but Transistor is not the same. But it has a lot of cosmetic similarities - They look similar, and the feel of the art and the dialogue is not far off but the setting is different. The delivery of the story feels very similar. Small bits of dialogue and lore uncovered as you play. It's a really interesting comparison to Hades. 

 

Hades is very much twitchy gameplay despite stats and stuff being part of it. Transistor is a sort of seamless mix of action with some light strategy / queuing of moves. It's hard to describe. It's not turn based but you can effectively freeze / slow down time, queue up some actions so it's more strategic, with some time to stop and think about how you might approach a group of enemies. You can just kinda hack and slash but that doesn't seem to work so well. I found Hades much more fast and furious. 

 

I really enjoyed Transistor. It's short and sweet unless you decide to do replays and I thought the art style and vibe were really lovely. 

 

I felt like playing Bastion because I loved Transistor but was a bit afraid it'd let me down and never got around to it.

Yeah, I don't want to dis Bastion too much as it is worth a punt at £2 but after an hour I just gave up. It felt a bit ploddy.
