  1. Reminds me of the old Game and Watch gameboy game. I play that cartridge so much that it just doesn't work anymore good stuff though
  2. This is a super cool idea, I hope they expand the gameplay types in a way that keeps stability for the game overall. Certainly would be a neat tool to introduce different game types to friends who aren't as saavy.

    Gaming News:Go on the Hunt in Path of Exile: Bestiary

    It's been a fun patch! Where last patch many were confounded by the hard-to-see Abyss cracks in the ground, now we are figuring out how to capture beasts without killing them first. Most builds seem built for speed and high damage, so slowing down to throw a net before clearing a crowd of enemies gets a bit close on timing. Biggest piece of advice is to throw a net before starting damage because you have a brief window of the net animation before you should do damage (while being quick enough so that the beast doesn't break out and hulk out). This is the second league that I've completed the main campaign (Acts 1-10, the Atlas is post game content), and I'm still having a blast. Been playing for a couple years now.

    Feature: Review: Shadow of the Colossus (2018)

    I said a while back I'd be getting it. I got it, I love it again Roommate was asking about lore of the game, and I love how my response was more speculative than fact. 16 colossi seemingly created by some ancient civilization to trap and seal away separate parts of this evil god, only to be released a millennia later by a boy from an up-and-coming tribal village. The save/heal point monuments serving as rest stations or base camps for the ancients during the construction/growth of the shell colossi. All of that stone work and scaffolding that makes it easy to climb them just leftover as a contingency plan in case the trap/sealing plan didn't work. So much else that just gets created in your mind as justifications for certain things!
  5. Hey @Jack Gardner, glad you guys are back, but the SoundCloud clip is cut short (also missing intro music), FYI
  6. Not to nit-pick, but I wouldn't call this "Gaming News", Jack
  7. Since some of us don't use XSplit there was a topic on divying out keys to those who do. I thought I'd start a thread as a place for anyone to offer their donation reward keys if they choose not to use them. So far the keys I immediately know of are the XSplit 3 month license and Carved custom phone case. I've given my XSplit key away and still have the Carved key if anyone wants it (they don't have my phone as an option). @herobyclicking mentioned that you could use them as donation incentives in your own circles if you wish, but if you just want to drop it here you certainly can. I would advise not posting the actual keys in this thread, just DM them to who you want to give it to.
  8. I have the Looney Labs $10 gift card code I don't plan on using
  9. D: But I played Penumbra before Amnesia! Penumbra was amazing

    OBS Snapfoo

    So one thing to keep in mind when trying to stream is to keep OBS updated. I apparently had been running a years old version (around 0.6something) and it was taking up a LOT of processor utilization. Upgraded to v20 (which looks pretty neat btw) and everything runs great! My computer feels young again! Not to mention with the Randomized Pokemon HG race I'm doing for EL this year coming up, we wanted to stream to a multi-screen stream. If I had two OBS (old version) streams going (one to multi, one to twitch) then my computer just wasn't having it. Really goes to show the improvements OBS has made over the years o.o
  11. My brother and I would play the level that had two 5 level structures opposite to each other in a canyon, then dig a tunnel from the top of one to the top of another through the wall that juts out. Even back then we could recognize the resource limit as at some point the explosives would just do nothing. Super fun, big part of my ps2 nostalgia

    Xsplit reward

    I can certainly see this for the larger streamers/teams. For myself, my social media circles are pretty small so I tend to just opt to give out the codes here. I'll keep it in mind though!

    Xsplit reward

    @herobyclicking, can we change this post's title to "EL 2017 Rewards Swap"? I also have a code for the Carved phone case I can't use (they don't have an option for my Nexus5X). I don't remember what all else there might be, but it might be helpful for others to have a one stop thread for notifying others. Just wondering, not sure if that's something that comes up much, but it would be sad to see some of these go to waste :/
  14. We just had a 4 way Pokemon HG Randomizer Race this past weekend, and one of the 4 of us works his day job as a (Full Stack?) Web dev. I'm not sure if he used your tracker or not, but he modified something to make a cool Pokemon life total for donations (bottom right). I asked him if he was interested in posting it to the forums here https://clips.twitch.tv/PeppyVibrantNuggets4Head

    Pokemon HG Race!

    Hey all! Myself, my brother, and two of our friends are going head to head this year for Extra Life. We've decided to run a randomized version of a Pokemon game! Our run will be in two stages, 1) Beat the Elite Four! and 2) Battle each other with that team. We will be streaming this on October 14th, starting around noon and running as much as we can. I'll be streaming at twitch.tv/cptjecht, and I'll post a multi-stream link (most likely twitch.tv/novax81) closer to the date! The randomizer we're using is the Universal Pokemon Game Randomizer. We have, most notably, pokemon types, moves (within typing), starters, trainer pokemon, wild pokemon, and legendaries all randomized! I figured I would post here if anyone was interested in tuning in

    Pokemon HG Race!

    We finished up at $200! Was super fun, three of us finished the Elite Four. Plenty of softlocks on our emulators, but it was still lots of fun the time three of us ran into Raikou at the same time https://clips.twitch.tv/PeppyVibrantNuggets4Head

    Xsplit reward

    just got mine. I don't use XSplit, does/can anyone want to use my code?
  18. I went back two weeks ago and played Oblivion and, again, had a blast playing it. The only thing that I would want different from it though is that difficulty scaling. There was a video I watched where the guy explained the scaling system and how hopeless dungeons start to become if you don't scale your attributes as quickly as the game scales enemies. I felt after that video that the main way I feel like I can still enjoy that is by racing through quests and not getting distracted by random dungeons (which would level me more). Either way, I'm back in the Bethesda Universe with Fallout 4. 39 hours in 4 days and I can't stop thinking about the game, even at work.

    So excited! Haven't gotten to play 1, but I love the art style and direction, and as a PC gamer I'm certainly willing to use the BNet launcher more. I'll be playing!

    Podcast:The Best Games Period - Episode 58 - Lair

    So. I am still trying to follow whats going on at 41 mins, ya know, the usual way the show goes--thinking I know they get off topic sometimes, but they did say they were starting to talk about the game...whats with all these weird plot jabs? *Reads description before SoundCloud embed* 2 days early--oh. *sigh*
  24. Neato burrito. I was super interested in Destiny when it first came out, but didn't have a console to play it on. I think I might join up when this comes out. Love the setting/style
