Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I think of those only Year Walk and Sailor's Dream are on the list as it stands so I'll have to add the rest and see how much enthusiasm/uptake there is. The thing to keep in mind is that their titles are thematic trilogies; you could cover pretty much all of their offerings in two shows, one for K...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I would love to hear a podcast or two covering Simogo's releases (Kosmo Spin, Bumpy Road, Beat Sneak Bandit, Year Walk, Device 6, The Sailor's Dream, SPL-T) and I would also love to be on such a podcast. Hell, I'd be happy to host it myself.

Re: Threes! - Cane and Rinse 196

The tragedy of Threes is that 2048 does feel more satisfying to "play" because it's a Skinner Box. With very little input from the player you can see numbers go higher and eventually be given a win message. I'd argue that Threes does also have a win state aside from beating your high score, though. ...

Re: Dark Souls I, II & III

Shulva's enemies are higher poise than Brume or Eleum Loyce; I have a swordsman with the stone ring, and I can stagger the latter two, but I feel like they still powered through my hits in Shulva.

Re: Dark Souls I, II & III

I'm just playing through Scholar of the first Sin having never done the DLC before. I'm nearing (ish) the main quest, just made it to the Dragon Shrine. Was wondering what peoples opinion was on when to tackle the DLC areas, I got into the Sunken King area but found myself a touch unserpowered. I'v...

Yeah, I figured that'd be the case; I went on longer than even I usually do.

Re: Our next podcast recording but one - Dark Souls II

Dark Souls 2 is one of the most disappointing games I've played in recent memory, and the sheer number of places where it falls short compared to its predecessor with no good reason make me all the more annoyed that I find several purely mechanical differences more engaging as far as the gameplay is...

Re: Dark Souls I & II

So yeah, it's a weirdly laid out area. I really don't want to have to go across the entire poison swamp to reach this boss, but I guess I don't have a choice. I don't have anything to negate poison though, aside from a couple of mosses. The safe spots are actually all set up so that you could get a...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It's only a short term limit too, so it's not like you have to worry about a time limit for your entire playthrough. How much have you played? There's an interesting story element to it as well, in that the main characters are from a culture that are vegetarian, so they have to break that value to ...

Re: Games Completed 2015

I'd love to play through Chrono Trigger one day. I own it on about five different formats, and have played the first couple of hours at least ten times :/ Play the DS version. The touch screen controls make combat easier in my opinion, plus it has the anime cutscenes that the PSX version had withou...

Re: Nintendo Wii U

Hmmm, they'll no doubt save the proper Starfox stuff for E3/ Digital Event Would they really, though? Nintendo still trend towards making big batches of announcements of new games at E3, certainly, but revealing more info on already-announced games is pretty common for a Direct. This direct is focu...

You should try starting a new file with the master key in your inventory.

Re: Podcasting/Recording Microphones

As a heads-up on microphones, if anyone is considering getting a decent mic and looking at the Yeti, the Samson C01U is available from Amazon for a good deal less (was for me, anyway), and is easily comparable with the Yeti. Similar sturdy design with good, clear vocals.

Re: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Yeah, I don't know what y'all are talking about, either with this or Brawl. Almost never had a bad match in any of the three online games.

Re: Nintendo Wii U

So, this Smash Bros business. How's online? Fine for me every time I've played with friends overseas; conflicting reports in general, I think. Can you set up private matches? With people on your friends list, yes. And you can finally look at people's profiles after matches and send friend requests ...

Re: Nintendo Wii U

Okay then, still no. For one, Mario 3D World has not been outsold by Knack; Knack has currently sold more copies, and that's a result of Knack being designed from the ground up to be something that appeals to children. Nintendo never pretended online didn't exist; or, if they did, Sony deserves to b...

Re: Nintendo Wii U

Anyone think Nintendo are really missing a trick with no achievement system on Wii U? Certain games have stamps and accomplishments, particularly Smash Bros. with its challenges; and no. Miyamoto already went on record for not wanting to bait the player with a carrot, and I agree with him. If a gam...
