It's time for our final update of the year folks! Our December update! 🎄

The month is a little light on co-op games but not on quality. There's some solid indie choices from the looks of it.
  • Added ANVIL to the OP and our co-op list
  • Added Archvale to the OP and our co-op list
  • Added Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! to the OP once again due to a small delay
  • Added ICARUS to the OP again after a delay pushed it from August to December
  • Added Heavenly Bodies to the OP and our co-op list
  • Added Thunder Tier One to the OP and our co-op list
  • Added After the Fall to the OP and our co-op list
  • Added Ampersat to the OP again after a delay pushed it from August to December


Now for the other news, we will be having an end of the year event either December 10 or 11, whichever works better for folks. I'd be willing to hold one on both days if some can make it for one day but not the other. :highfiveblob:

And next year I'd like to take the time to discuss with everyone what you all would like to do with our events going forward. I've talked a little before about how they've gotten smaller and smaller and have become kind of stagnant. As I said then the fault lies mostly with me, I don't deny that and it's something I deeply regret, but I feel we can still improve both the co-op events and this thread with everyone's help. :blobhug:

Calling bullshit. Time zones are tough to deal with, that's not your fault in the slightest. I'm sure everybody will agree.
But I invented time zones! I'm also responsible for daylight savings.


Why anyone gave me that power I have no clue.

In all seriousness, you're right about the time differences. It's nearly impossible to find a time that works for everyone. And while I do sometimes wish I could find that perfect time, the part that I regret not doing better with is promoting the events more. Either in more threads or on Discord. Or both.

But we'll get it all figured out eventually and as always, thanks for having my back! :cat-heart-blob:

And let’s not forget most gamers not being really social at heart. I keep saying that what PossiblyPudding has done is already very impressive. It’s not his fault if the event has drifted a little, it’s everybody’s.
….
And fucking timezones :disapproval-blob:

Hey folks! Let's go with Saturday for our event. We'll start it slightly earlier than we normally would so that hopefully it's easier for everyone. I'm thinking around 2pm EST, so roughly 7-8pm for most folks.

We'll figure out what we'll be playing once we have a better idea of how many folks will be showing up but I would love to see some suggestions from you all if there's any that come to mind. :cat-heart-blob:

January and February update time! This time around I'll include the store page links here as well. Which will stop me from labeling MHR as Monstie Huntie Rise.. but not from mentioning it here. :cuteblob:

January


February




And that's without some surprises sneaking into February! :face-with-cold-sweat:

We'll see about holding a co-op event sometime this month. If enough folks are interested in one I'll get started on finding us a good date and time. Also folks are more than welcome to join myself, Li Kao and Le Pertti when we play on Tuesdays or Thursdays. We're planning to try out Rainbow Six Extraction soon and get into Sea of Thieves and Grounded.

First session of Rainbow Six Extraction with PossiblyPudding
Went really bad then really good. You have to get used to play as a team, keep an eye on your mates, quite tense.

Wonderful session ! :photoblobheart:

Double dose of updates again! This time we've got March and April. And jeez.. there was a lot more in March than I realized!

March

























April







I have a feeling I'll be adding more to that April list as a few more sneak into the month but wow, March really did hoard them all. 🙀

Yeah, it's a shame to see the direction they've taken 3 in so far. It's still in early access so hopefully they'll turn it around even if it's probably unlikely given the amount of DLC that's already available and it being turned into a seemingly very predatory live service game.

I loved the first two PQ games so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out for the better with 3. The idea of a co-op PQ game is pretty exciting.

An only slightly, just a tiny bit, late May update!























Nothing terribly big this time around outside of arguably Sniper Elite 5, but there's no shortage of interesting choices. I really want to check out at least half of this list at some point with Soundfall probably being the one I'm looking forward to the most.

An on time June update? What kind of sorcery is this?! 🤯

It's looking like a pretty barren month currently, though we'll see what the different events in the coming weeks hold for us. I won't be shocked at all if there happens to be at least one surprise June release.



In other news I might start posting about my streams here rather than the Steam thread. I feel awkward taking away from conversations there by butting in to promote myself. Of course the worry then is that's all this thread will become but I still feel it's a better alternative.

Which yes, I admit it's my self esteem problem rearing its head a little again. I just hate feeling like a nuisance so rather than going with my first instinct to avoid the topic altogether or disappear, we'll put it here. For a while at least. :cuteblob:

We'll be continuing our adventures with throwable child in Ender Lilies in about 10 minutes if folks would like to see some more metroidvania.

And yes, the first part of that sentence is a little messed up without context.. but only slightly. :face-with-stuck-out-tongue-and-winking-eye:

It's time for the Sunday bounce around again. No idea what shenanigans I'll get up to this time but we're going to start with a little Dragon Marked For Death. I haven't played it in a long time and have been wanting to get back into it.. and also not so sneakily try to entice a couple friends to pick it up during a sale. :cuteblob:

Friday stream coming up in about 15 minutes. Going to work on finishing up Ender Lilies, or at least getting as close as we can. Chances are it'll probably be a lot of backtracking today so I want to give everyone a heads up of what to expect.

But I'm sure we'll still find a way to sneak some goofiness in there. :cuteblob:

Hey folks! Got another stream coming up in about 10 minutes where I have absolutely no idea what I'll be streaming so expect some chaos to occur. It might end up being another all demo stream but we'll see. There's been a couple great releases in the last day or two that could be fun to check out as well.

We didn't quite finish up Neon White last stream so we'll start things off with a little of that and then move on to our usual Sunday bounce around nonsense. I've got a few games in mind that we'll check out and maybe a couple more surprise games if we have time. Should be starting in about 10 minutes!

The day has finally come! A double dose of Sunbreak and Cuphead DLC!

In about 15 minutes we're going to start things off with some Cuphead and switch things up to Sunbreak about half way through. I'm fully expecting to get my butt kicked in Cuphead.. less so in Sunbreak but I'm sure it'll still happen. :face-with-stuck-out-tongue-and-winking-eye:

July update!

It's another somewhat sparse month, and one that sadly doesn't have some heavy hitters at the end. Though that doesn't mean there's nothing interesting either. F1's co-op career seems solid for racing fans and I'm really curious about As Dusk Falls and River City Saga.











And these last two are games that will be leaving early access this month.

Got a hopefully chill Tuesday coming up in about 15 minutes. We're going to start off with some more Little Noah and then see what sounds good. The original plan was for us to finally start The Quarry today but given the shootings that occurred here in the US yesterday that only continue to add to a long list that have already happened this year I really don't feel like playing something that kind of glorifies guns in any way.

While I doubt we'll be able to completely avoid violence in the games we play today I'm going to try my best to find ones that aren't excessively violent.
