And as far as your statement goes regarding us "stealing all the elements" well The Blacklodge is totally different from the show, there is no FBI Office or anything like in the show or movies, Glastonburry Grove is a forest that we hand crafted to look like the actual location, The Diner is the same but different containing elements from the show but presented in a different way. But since these are locations that people who love the show want to visit and see in a whole new format, we are trying to honor the material and also honor the fans while creating a whole new story in that world.

Look, there are so many elements in this that are literally ripped straight from the show. Unless you're telling me you've got the license to produce, I'm sticking by "stealing all the elements".

---
Here's a list from one quick viewing:
0:00 - Twin Peaks music for video - Laura Palmer's theme

0:17 - Black Lodge room is set up exactly like the show

0:27 gas station lumberjack

0:31 - "Relive the some of the shows most iconic moments"

0:31 - Location from Twin Peaks: The Return

0:44 - Gas station scene from The Return

1:08 - Dossier by "the archivist" - literally the premise behind "The Secret History of Twin Peaks" - Identity already given in book BTW.

1:16 - Video room from The Return

1:17 - Laura Palmer replica in Black Lodge room

1:22 - Owl ring from The Return

1:30 "interact with TP's memorable characters and locations" showing someone dancing like Audrey.

1:36 - BOB

1:48 - Giant

1:52 - gas station scene from Return again

1:57 - Tree "man from another place" from The Return

2:01 - Laura again

2:03 - Man from another Place (original version) with owl ring

2:19 - Twin Peaks theme starts

I'm not going to even get into how offensive it is for you to think it's okay to take wholesale a concept that is succinctly David Lynch, and think you could "continue" it like you'd know where it's going.

Inspired by Twin Peaks... watching that trailer, it's more like "Steal all the elements of Twin Peaks". That wasn't even trying to be its own thing.

Asus created AREZ because they are "scared" by Nvidia...

Now Nvidia has to come out with a KRATOZ line of cards to kill the AREZ.

Yea, that was a "God of War" joke. Don't blame me, it's coming out this Friday and it's on my mind.

I was just thinking the other day, that out of all the old show revivals, I think I would actually have watched a "Night Court" revival... well, there goes that idea.

He was also great in his few appearances as Harry the Hat on "Cheers".

I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't know he had a magic shop and nightclub where he performed a one-man show in New Orleans before Katrina... I had gone there the year before the storm, and would have definitely made it a stop to meet him in person.

I don't understand how WRoEF got best game... it's not even a game. It's literally walk forward and click something to hear a story. It's a (barely) interactive movie. I played it, was actually getting into the story, but it was very much just walking forward. Got to the first "weird flashback" thing and thought "Oh okay, we're going to get gameplay moments in these sections."... then it turns out it was just moving forward to follow a cat or something through trees. Still no actual game. Quit and refunded the game after that section.

The Long Dark? Really? Shitty abandonware from asshole devs. Won't even run on my PC for more than 5 mins without CTD.

I'm confused at how this is "abandonware"... it came out in August. I go to their website, and there are dev posts for Sept through December, a Halloween update, an update in December, and another dev post in February. I don't know the history that makes the devs "assholes" to you, but it certainly doesn't seem like abandonware.

I'm starting to believe that Valve just puts CS:GO on this list no matter what... I find it hard to believe that FC5 managed to knock out most every other title off the list, but the game that was in 9th place last week, somehow still remains and all the titles above it are mostly gone.

Surely the human race is running out of things to put the word "Simulator" after...

That's when we take it to the next level of inception...

They clearly mean the Console Games Awards.


Cuphead, What Remains of Edith Finch, Superhot, NieR and even Gorogoa are all on PC. The only games listed that aren't PC are LoZ and HZD.

They didn't do 3rd party cards back in those days, which is another reason why the company was destined for eventual downfall.

Am I misremembering? I'm pretty sure that Creative and Diamond at least made Voodoo2 cards.

Nina Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist taught me that daughters and alchemy don't mix!

I loved Cities: Skylines and was excited originally when I first heard about Surviving Mars, thinking it was going to be a Mars colonization simulation... but after watching the videos for it, it seems a bit goofy with wacky stuff like aliens and such. I was hoping for something more realistic (anyone remember Moonbase?)
