Re: Game Reviews

Come to think of it, that seems to be the problem you and other reviewers had with Braid , too: that the actual plot was told too much through the narration and the books in the end. Yeah, I did have that problem. And that's even more reason for me to go and grab The Witness soon, because it's a ve...

Re: Game Reviews

Sounds like good puzzles, obnoxious story. And yes, I'm one of those people who think it's fine for a game to have no plot at all, as long as the gameplay is good. That's what I remember of The Witness, when I played it back in 2016. For some weird reason I ended up not buying it... Also, the probl...

Re: Game Reviews

In retrospect, that was one unnecessarily mean review for a game that ain't even that bad. I guess I just have this thing against puzzle games that need bloated and overly serious storylines to compensate the fact that they are, well, puzzle games. It's like, after Portal, it's shameful for puzzle g...

Re: Game Reviews

The Talos Principle Imagine you're playing Minesweeper, and, every time you lose, you get a lecture on pre-elementary philosophy. So, in another installment of "game designers desperately try to be taken seriously", here's The Talos Principle, an epic tale of lasers, robots and tetrominos...

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

I commented in chat, but I'll say it here also that I think the story is coming along really well. It's quite impressive to see how the gender issues come across so naturally just by having Fry act like Fry. I'm really enjoying your writing and your characterisation in this.

Re: More YouTube Insanity

Ahh, Simpsonwave, yes. One of those wonderful, unexplainable Internet scenes... but then again, all vaporwave is.

(the video editing is really good, there)

Re: Random & Fun

For whatever reason, I'm watching the 2017 Speed Chess final between Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura, and I'm positively delighted by the fact that the commentators refer to the knights as "ponies".

I'm doing this forever now.

Re: Music discussion and reviews

I think I have discovered a new obsession: the 1973 album Artaud , by Argentinean band Pescado Rabioso. ... though it's not exactly an album by the band, but is really a solo album Luis Alberto Spinetta, since the band was already dissolved by then. But that's how the album is credited. Argentinean ...

Re: Game Reviews

Hlambdalf-Life 2 episodes 1 & 2 No, that's not a typo in the title. That's just how I'm going to refer to this game from now on. Well, it seems like, after two years, I was able to play the two "episodes" of our favourite game series that will never, ever be finished. And all this tim...

Re: OPINIONS: Twin of the Dead (WIP)

Talking about your motivations and reasons for writing is important, especially in an "opinions" thread, since it helps give us a better insight on what you're trying to do and offer better advice. Also, personally, I find it very interesting to know the artist's process of thinking. What ...

Re: New album launch - O Cinismo Meigo

Thank you, Chris! I'm always happy to receive comments about my music from everyone, regardless of experience in critique. Talking about music is just fun, y'know. :) Also, this is the first album of songs that I've done, and even though they can be quite sophisticated and non-trivial at parts, they...
