it's been years since i've been able to put together anything resembling an honest list (without forgetting half of everything), but hmmmm. i'll think about some favorite albums and write them down in an unordered fashion.

i set up a dedicated Minecraft server recently, so i'm going to be playing with one of my friends tonight, and the elder nephew tomorrow. gonna saddle up my skeleton horse! and finally make an enchantment table.

i am in the mood for DOOM... wait, there's a palindrome here somewhere... but i haven't purchased it yet. i may try to get back into Hard Reset or Painkiller HD, since i've Serious Sam'med my way to completion for every single title in that series. frown

i'm in for this, but no gaming time right now (so no need to buy just yet). craving a new action shooter. tried to play Doom3 the other year and i got bored several levels in - happy to hear this is more like the original.

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered also has really good reviews and may be a bit more straight forward typing game.

this is a 'word maker' game (like Bookworm or Boggle) and not a typing game - i always used the mouse to construct the words. (don't actually remember if you can* use the keyboard). it also gets quite difficult in later levels.

(no one wants to play with me in Typing of the Dead because it really is one of the games i'm best at - still, the final fight is incredibly hard. i was obsessed with this game for a while. - i have the original on disc for Dreamcast and PC [and the new version in Steam], and even have multiple Dreamcast keyboards/keyboard adapters.)

One more interesting tidbit on Youth Code, from the Pitchfork review of their album.  It was produced by Rhys Fulber of FLA fame.  Which explains why it sounds so much better than the first album.

not sure what this band is doing in this thread (i feel like there should be a non-genre specific music topic), but since we're here .. their material sounded very inspired by late-80s WaxTrax! sound.

also i'm putting this here for Gratch's amusement (or disgust)

Those of you who build your own rigs -- I'd love your feedback.   More detail?  Less detail?  Something I missed that I should cover? 


are you looking to sell your old parts, by any chance?

Baroness Purple

pleasantly surprised by this one. it went from a 'meh' feeling when i put it on hold at the library to 'i would actually buy this' while halfway through. they changed their sound up and i think it works even better for this group. there's a good instrumental passage right in the middle of the album and "Shock Me" (is this the single?) sounds, oddly, like mid-90s Catherine Wheel.

Just an update - I did finish Grim Dawn (normal difficulty) so yay me! First game finished in 2016.

I'm now working on the second and third endings for Arkham Knight. There's a lot to do since I pretty much mainlined the storyline missions, but I'm making tremendous progress and hope to have that knocked out by the end of the week.

you make it sound like work...

21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Biggest disappointment/surprise of the year 2015 on: January 09, 2016, 06:01:45 AM
disappointment was Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth expansion. at least it was only $6.66
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 emulation on the PS4 is an exciting prospect on: December 14, 2015, 09:16:16 AM
i still have my PS2 and original discs, i'll just play them there. The Mark of Kri is a pretty good title for those who haven't tried it yet - interesting graphical style, and the fantasy "Pacific atoll"/Polynesian setting hasn't been done very often (if ever...)
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist -- 12/11/15 Edition - Pre Star Wars Mania!!! on: December 12, 2015, 05:35:19 AM
the new challenges in Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth. i'm sucking at them.
24  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: My modem or my ISP? on: December 12, 2015, 05:33:55 AM
i had similar issues at a previous house - it was due to the coax cable running in the house not being 'cable' grade (only 'antenna' grade). seemed to occur more frequently in warmer weather.
25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My current musical obsession (metal) on: December 03, 2015, 02:35:11 AM
how about that new Ghost record? out of a pile of albums i've listened to released this year, this was one of the more interesting ones (in all aspects).

this Serious Sam DLC on 'hard' difficulty is pretty difficult. i'm having to really struggle and be on the top of my game to clear some sections. it doesn't help that i still haven't gotten any good weapons yet; throwing a Highlander thrown at me when i only have the single-barrel shotgun is cruel. well, i guess that's what the chainsaw's for...
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/25/15 - US Thanksgiving Edition - Black Friday Madness on: November 25, 2015, 11:16:26 PM
Rogue Legacy, Spelunky, Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, Serious Sam: Legend of the Beast DLC, Painkiller HD, Spintires, dunno, it's a long weekend.

yes, it is surprising how well PCSX2 runs nowadays (if you have a decent machine)
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/20/15 Edition on: November 22, 2015, 05:40:00 AM
got Rogue Legacy for cheap, and put five hours into it so far. exceedingly difficult the first hour or so, but it gets easier (easier, not 'easy'). still haven't beat the first big enemy.

going to try out lawnmower racing in Wreckfest now

EDIT: using the lawnmower in a standard banger race (where everyone else is driving cars) will totally make you the target of a takedown within the first 10 seconds. i did last three laps on an oval, tho.

Spelunky Spelunky Spelunky Spelunky

i made it to the City of Gold for the first time this week. took several hundred attempts over the span of a few years.

Quote
To access the City of Gold, the player must play through the whole game from the beginning, collecting all of the special ancient Egyptian artifacts from each area:

    The Udjat Eye from the Mines.
    The Ankh from the Black Market in the Jungle.
    The Hedjet from the Ice Caves.
    The Scepter from the Temple.

    To acquire the Udjat Eye, you must find the Key to unlock the Big Chest.
    To acquire the Ankh, you must use the Udjat Eye to locate the entrance to the Black Market, use a bomb, Fire Frog or a mattock to reveal it and purchase the item within for $50,000.
    To acquire the Hedjet, you must locate the Moai and kill yourself anywhere on the level to resurrect inside it, where you will find the item.
    To acquire the Scepter, you must find and kill Anubis in the temple 4-1.

When you possess both the Hedjet and the Scepter, you must then locate the Golden Door somewhere in the Temple 4-2 to gain entry. The Scepter must be relinquished to open the door, leaving you with only the Udjat Eye and the now-useless Hedjet.

i've liked or loved all Killing Joke's albums .. i thought Absolute Dissent (from 2010) was one of the best they've ever done, and that's saying something. i got the 3 disc In Dub collection (most of which were new mixes by Youth) earlier this year, and it is greaaat. i am a fan, tho - i was even going to go to Jaz's book tour back in August, but that was cancelled. (visa didn't go through or something)

Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (which totally glitched out when loading the save file from the base game and gave me a few achievements i had never earned due to their incredible difficulty, including Godhead and The Real Platinum God)

also Painkiller HD, Spelunky and Besiege

if you're serious, you can get PS1 and PS2 consoles for cheap at the Goodwill - i see them there pretty often now. (actually got an Xbox 360 last year for $24...! it's a first gen, tho. i expect it will RROD some day.)

38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/30/15 Halloween Edition on: October 30, 2015, 11:35:51 PM
completed Serious Sam 2 last weekend, so iíve moved onto Painkiller HD (since one of my original Painkiller discs is damaged). already played through the Halloween DLC and am a quarter-way through the main game - it's significantly shorter than the original.

also i suppose i have to play Costume Quest (which iím not overly enjoying yet, but it is thematic, so whatever). tried Bulletstorm (not overly enjoying that either).

i thought i was out of Serious Sam for now, but SS: SE HD DLC was on Halloween sale for $0.49, and i didn't have it, so i paid for it with some Steam trading cards. playing on Hard to (artificially?) extend the playtime.

that's great. i dodged the bullet on my secondhand 2011 MBP (it didn't have the faulty nVidia graphics card). for next time, detail the issue(s) you're experiencing in the first post - someone could possibly help out, then.

On the other hand, Wreckfest is still missing a lot but it is an actual game, with races, tracks, AI, drivers, online, etc.  Hopefully they get this next big patch out soon, it's also taking way longer than expected.

people on the forums are feeling slighted as the devs seem to have taken to Twitter to post mini-updates. i agree - how hard is it to post a small update in the News sub-forum?
