I think Hollow Knight is easily the best Metroidvania released in the past 5 years. The atmosphere is fantastic, the map is gigantic with lots of interconnectiveness that metroidvanias need, there's plenty of world lore lying around for you to piece together, and the Souls-elements fit so well with the Metroidvania theme of exploring a massive hostile environment alone.

How does it compare to Ori and the Blind Forest? I just finished that game and it's probably as close to a perfect game in the genre as I've played. Art, music and gameplay were all pretty much on point. Was thinking about getting Hollow Knight next.

Why are they waiting more than a month to put it on Steam?
Yeah, can't seem to find the install size. Normally you can see the info on Steam sales page. The original TSW seems to be 43 gig.

I think the full install option was 26gb.

Jumped on to play this, saw nothing different. Apparently you have to start a new char. May try again tonight, but the character graphics and animations are showing their age. Makes it harder to get back in to.

The animations have been updated but I believe you need to start a new character to enjoy them.


Some were, some weren't. Everyone has to create a new character. It's not importing characters from the original game.

I tried it, but really don't like the "action combat reticle" interface that doesn't let me do anything else UI wise while moving or fighting.

Also kind of annoyed they're not giving patrons an extra character slot for subscribing. Most games I've seen with optional subs have that as a perk for subscribing.

It's sad... so many of the main cast of Babylon 5 have passed already.

Goodbye Emperor Cotto.

Cyanide and Spider remain two of Focus Entertainment's premium RPG developers. Big fan of both of their works. That said, not a fan of the Cthulhu mythos. A bit too demonic for my tastes. Not judging those who enjoys HP Lovecraft's work.

that's odd... I actually love the mythos because it seems so far removed from demonic/angelic dynamic to me. It's all space-creatures to which we're insignificant type stuff.

BGE2 has gone from one of my most anticipated never-going-to-be-made sequels to something I have absolutely no interest in. A prequel with no Pey'J and Jade. Nothing in the realistic design or more mature tone says BGE to me. Except for the shot at the end that is obviously supposed to be Jade's mother, and Jade's theme playing at that point, nothing reminds me of BGE.

And that monkey is really annoying if he's going to be a playable character...

Blue, you cut the title off too early:

Richard Garriott Reassures Shroud Of The Avatar Backers About Their $11 Million Going to Build the New Wing of his Castle.

To be fair, Garriott did sell Brittania Manor back in 2014. And His other Austin property where he was going to build is currently on the market.

Now they just need to do this on mobile... because I can't tell you how many sites I've just given up visiting on my phone because they're impossible to browse with either slow loading ads that pop up over everything and no way to close for an extended length of time. Or my real favorite... the ones that just redirect to a site that you can't go back from to get to the original article you were trying to read. Like WTF point is having ads on your site if they literally redirect people off the site with no way to go back.

You see it a lot in Roman Latin inscriptions. Although usually they don't have a J, either.

Isn't that usually a V instead of a U?

The Engadget article on this mentioned that they were a 2014 model of Beats that required additional batteries to operate.

Oh please, CJ doesn't play games, he just comes on Blue's to bitch about every game that exists. Nothing is good enough for his royal highness.

I've honestly gotten to the point with him, where I really feel that is actually the case.

Black and White Bushido is almost literally that Samurai Jack episode where they fight and the entire thing is done in solid white and black with no shading. Awesome sequence.

But the author is more involved than the games, and he isn't a fan of the games, yet I think TW3 probably has the best characters, or world, or something, of any game I've played, so I think not having him involved had to have been a benefit.

I actually read a recent interview with him a month or so ago, and (from what I remember) it's not so much that he doesn't like the games, he actually complimented on them on the job they did, he just finds it frustrating some times how people think he's writing books based on the games and such.

From reading the splash page it appears to be a strategy game as opposed to a space combat game. It talks about building fleets and the smallest ship it mentions is a corvette.

Might be interesting.

Build a fleet with... umm... resources? no? oh. My bad. Defend your starting fleet, for which you can't get any replacements from unending waves of cylon ships!


(yes, after looking at the URL at the end of the trailer, it's set during the first Cylon war, so fleet building makes more sense. But I still stand by my joke.)

The game was fun. Weird but fun. And it was written with a sequel in mind but it never materialized.

Even more frustrating is that in the beginning level of Quantum Break, they put in a television that, when you turn it on, plays a trailer for an Alan Wake sequel. That's just rubbing salt in the wound.

word of warning: I picked this up and its got a very confusing 3rd person perspective where the player is off to the side which makes it sort of hard to walk in a straight line or know where you're looking.

Weird... Never had an issue with this game in regards to movement.

Are The Poets of the Fall responsible for this? They had some great tracks in Alan Wake. Children of the Elder God being one of my favorites.

I was more thinking it was the licensing for the Roy Orbison and David Bowie tracks.

I love when game companies tout their "Registered Player" count. SoE did this crap with Free Realms, acting like it was hugely popular, when it actually ended up failing. Pretty much it's a PR stat, and not a valid metric of anything.

Beamer wrote on Apr 26, 2017, 13:24:
First off, that wasn't Vivendi, it was Infogrames. Second off, you can't even blame them, because that ignores everything from the Lynx in 1989, the Jaguar in the early 90s, the remainder of the 90s when Atari sold literally nothing, and two years of continuing to be nothing with Hasbro.

Its a shame they didn't market the Lynx properly or get good developer support on the games side... It really was a way better system than Game Boy. Backlit color display, did equivalent of SNES Mode7 effects before SNES, and you could link multiple systems to play together.
