Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Has Plague Inc. been suggested? I think it's an interesting, though breakable game.

Re: Games Completed 2018

I finished Max Payne 2. Such a cool series. I feel slightly ashamed for having never played these games before. Trying to decided if I like either 1 or 2 more than the other or if I just like them as a whole. I wish there were more of the series like that, before it went to Rockstar (though I still ...

Re: Books completed (2018)

I just reread Jurassic Park and the Lost World. Still love them, but I defiantly see the flaws in the writing style more than I did my first few reads. It's nice not being a kid/teenager and being confused by the science or philosophical discussions. Also, the dinosaur stuff is still tops. Probably ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just started Max Payne 2. Talk about a graphical upgrade! This series is so cool, glad I've finally tried it out. Even 15 years later, it's still impressing newbies like me.

Re: Games Completed 2018

Finished Metro 2033 Redux. What a strange game. I'm wondering if the books are as weird as the game's story? Interested to find out. The whole game was much different than I was expecting. Very thoughtful, with a lot more world building and atmosphere than I assumed. I'll definitely check out the se...

Community Streamers

I thought we might need a place for community members who stream to drop their Twitch (and non-Twitch) links. I'm always looking for new to people to follow and connect with via their streams. Go ahead and put info about your channel and schedules here as well! You can find me at www.twitch.tv/duskv...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

Just read Batman: Year 100. Cool story with a lot of fun twists and nods to the Bat-history. The art is some ugly stuff, but I guess that's the point? Makes this version of the future look extremely unattractive.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Started Westworld season 2. Close to being caught up. I'm enjoying this season much more than the slog that was the first. Much more focused, and a bit more sci-fi. Liking it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Started Metro 2033 Redux last night. Was expecting a lot more action straight out of the gate, but it seems like it might be a more thoughtful game than that. Action happens as scenes, most of the the time it's best not to fight and I've spent more time just touring survivalist towns. Interesting so...

Re: Games Completed 2018

Yikes, finished Telltale's Jurassic Park. Very quick. Intellectually, I know it's not a great game. It's nothing but quick time events and nothing is there to engage the player. It's really just an interactive movie. On the other hand, that movie I'm interacting with is Jurassic Park, so... Am I cra...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Started Telltale's Jurassic Park: The Game last night. First two episodes done, with only two more to go. Seems short, but there's also not much "game" there, so it's probably for the best.

Re: Games Completed 2018

2. I guess I made part of that assumption based on the fact that it was on the Gamecube. 3. The last JRPGs I played were Trails in the Sky 1 and Worlds of Final Fantasy, so I think I was just on this weird kick. I never played the sequels, but, yes, Xenosaga was very dramatic. One of my favorite, n...

Re: Games Completed 2018

I went in expecting something light and fluffy That's really interesting to me because I think that JRPGs are particularly prone to mature themes and writing. Xenogears, Suikoden and FF Tactics have heavy political plots with strong philosophical undertones. I haven't played it, but my understandin...

Re: Games Completed 2018

I finished Tales of Symphonia last night. I was surprised by it's length, considering it was a Gamecube game. Ah, this has escaped me over the years also and is close to my current maybe pile of what to get into next. How long would you say it took you to get through ?? It took me about 40 hours, g...

Re: Games Completed 2018

I finished Tales of Symphonia last night. I was surprised by it's length, considering it was a Gamecube game. The developers deserve credit for packing that game with so much. Also, I was surprised, mostly due to my ignorance, about how dark the story went. I went in expecting something light and fl...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Just finished Barry on HBO. Thought that show was hilarious but it also got a bit too dark for my taste at the end. I'd love to find another show like it, but on the lighter side.

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

Not new, but I had Chumbawambu's Tubthumper in my car's cd player all last week. Loved the albums as a teen, always surprises me that I STILL like it as I've gotten older. Still love "The Big Issue" and "The Good Ship Lifestyle".

Re: Games Completed 2018

Well, after 27 years, I finally saw the end credits of the first Sonic the Hedgehog! I don't know if this is agreed upon or not, but as an adult, that level design in that first game is nuts. Everything about it is the opposite of "going fast" and there's so much lava and water levels! Gotta take my...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I spent all of last night playing online in Street Fighter 30th. Lots of fun, but I was surprised that I didn't spend much time in II or Alpha 3, which were the games I owned and played when I was younger. I spend the majority in Third Strike, which I've never played until last night. Part of that i...

Everyone seems to be on different platforms for this (collection of) game(s), unfortunately.
Yeah, I picked up on that fact too. Cross-play woes strike again.
