It must be in the weird temp Americans use, what is it in celsius ? :thinking-blob:
Wait, no ? It is celsius ? What the fuck !

- edit -
Thanks Anonymous User for Insomnia: The Ark. If my memory is right it's the RPG that took forever to ship and went from a nice isometric view to a more mundane one. Always been curious about its dieselpunk universe.
It is in Fahrenheit, temp was -29° C with -34° C wind-chill. Somewhat close since it's approaching -40°, the one temperature they both agree on.

I love these interviews with people who actually worked on it.
I don't love that IGN fills them up with repeat applications of the same 40 seconds of gameplay footage and hardware renders (I realize they might not have much more than that, but then simply don't cut away from the interview this often :p).
yeah, they really could've shown more ... or just stick to the interview

too bad it's not all that in-depth, though

Death's Door get~

Now to patiently wait for Great Ace Attorney for $30 or less @3@
What price do you see on Gamersgate using "GG-DEALS-21" In Euros its about €29.18 but I've no idea regarding dollars to be honest.

I'm sorry but I don't think there is anywhere else to get the game below Gamersgate price. I got word its $32.79.

I suspect most have already seen it, but just in case...


A little over an hour before the poll closes :ripblob:

Also, still super stoked about N++. Really fun levels and the character movement has so much nuance to it, despite it being a single-button game. And it's so cheap! Utterly mind boggling. I've done all the intro stages, so I moved up to the beginner ones. Only several thousand left to go :fearful-face:

There is some real quality in there. Terrific stuff.

I wasn't involved with any online forums etc during this golden age of signatures and i feel like ive missed a truly wonderful period of human history that will never be repeated.

I feel like bragging a bit, so here's a video of a friend and me achieving (what was at the time) the global top score in E-04 N++ in co-op:

(Even if you watch nothing else watch the part at 0:45)

Very impressive! Those co-op levels are something else. I also watched part of a GDQ speedrun the other day, and the amount of coordination that's required for these is next level.

I was wondering, at 0:51 and later at 0:59, one of the players (the white ninja) seemingly lands right on top of a bomb (or rather walljumps off it) but it doesn't explode. Is there some kind of trick to that, or is it actually just the right angle?

It's just hitting the right pixel/angle. (Or if there is a trick to it beyond that I never figured it out ;))

All on the hardware.

yeah it's definitely a hardware issue. Maybe New World's title screen was badly programmed or whatever, but like I said a page or so back, internal thermometers are supposed to throttle clock speed or trigger an emergency shutdown before it gets hot enough to damage anything, that's literally why PCs have them

I remember getting an older version (N+?) of this game in some PC-related magazine a long time ago. Was really fun.

I finished two games today, Skyscraper and Stealth Force: War on Terror.. They were awful

Skyscraper is the worst game I've ever played. I wasted 5 hours beating it :despairblobbos:. I don't have much of anything to say about Stealth Force, but I'll write a review for Skyscraper later.

:poorbaby:me

Here's the final boss in Stealth Force:

I just noticed that F1 2021 doesn't have the 10% discount for EA Play subscribers. I wonder if the contract with F1 doesn't allow it for this year's version?

Why am I so tempted to grab this




it seems that some people really like WASD on their arcade stick. There's a big modding scene. I wonder how people like mechanical keys for the rest of it.

I think I'd prefer a Hitbox style layout, but I'm not trying to spend too much.

Well this is interesting and sure deserves a bit of your time, looks like some developers are starting a petition to resurrect Terranigma and they started a petition, with the current state of Square-Enix rereleases this is something that could happen so, if you want to help, why don't you sign the petition and share with others? I'm sure this is the best moment for this proposition to the higher ups after the great releases of SaGa and Mana IPs :blobeyes: :blobeyes: :blobeyes:
Sadly I don't think Square Enix cares about any Enix property that isn't Dragon Quest.

Well, I don't agree, we have seen how big the rereleases have become for Square-Enix in general and to be honest, the main problem here might be who owns the rights (quintet in this case) and if S-E is willing to help them allowing the team to re-release the classic.

I think this is the best moment for something like that.

Is this thing any good if you're only interested in the single player?
Its alright. I only play single player stuff, got this a while ago. Its campaign splits between 3-4 mini stories across the allied forces so you get one where you are a regular solider in a tank crew, one you are a pilot, one you are a message runner (i think, its not very memorable). They are all fairly standard, each one is a few chapters long so you can get through them in a couple of hours. Worth a play if you like the setting and FPS. It looks very good graphically if you have a beefy PC. Worth a Fiver. Last story is pretty good, Laurence of Arabia stuff.

Some MS games have steam keys sold on amazon and gmg, etc.

Do we have a thread for forum issues? It looks like there's been a change recently and a ton of my posts that use color have "UWSL" liberally applied to them. It's odd. The text colours are still there but the posts are messed up.

I've had a poke about and it looks like posts that use Bold have been hit as well. I only noticed it this morning. all seemed fine yesterday.

How's tribes of midgard looking? My friend and I are always looking for games that have campaign co-op and the games we tried recently:
Dark Souls 3
MonHun World
DQ Builders 2

While good in their own ways, have lame restrictions on progression :/

Observation: despite of the EGS summer sale, there is barely any dev or pub advertising their games on sale on EGS, only so far Ive seen on Twitter is the publisher of Mundaun and Stonefly and there is barely any talk about the sale either.

Like, Days Gone is currently on sale on Steam and EGS and the game's Twitter page is only linking to the Steam page and mentioned EGS in the same tweet, but no EGS store page link.


No thread on ERA or r/gamedeals

Basically unless Epic finances coupons noone seems to give a shit, not even devs/pubs themselves. I mean, things can change of course, maybe Epic didn't tell any dev or pub about the summer sale so noone advertises their games on sale there, but yeah.
