For anybody that was interested in a bit more serious and hardcore snowboarding game than Steep, they just put out a big update on all platforms that significantly updates things.

Performance has been improved drastically on the Xbox One, and I'd imagine on the others as well.  Smooth, fast framerate, no hitching...not an issue anymore.

The biggest change, though, is that they have added a lot more control to slowing or speeding up your spins.  Previously you had to perfectly judge your pre-wound torque and then that was kind of it.  That lead to a lot of out of control spins and flips.  Now you get a bit more control over it once you launch.  This is honestly a night-and-day change, and the fact that they were this responsive to player's complaints is a great sign for the future (to me).

They have also replaced all of their tutorials, added several more and overall teach new users and get them ninto the game much better.  There are also some videos you can watch in the game now for additional tips.

I was a little scared to come back to this after having so much fun in Steep, but with this update I think this one can still stand on it's own.  Not graphically (a small indie team will just never compete with Ubisoft's multi-studio empire), but in it's own ways.

There is currently a blizzard in North Dakota where my parents still live.  This is from the house of a friend of theirs (yes, that is snow with a door imprint)

Don't think that last episode did much to get people back on board, but I enjoyed seeing a Carl-centric episode.  Of course this entire side plot I find a bit ludicrous, from Carl essentially doing a suicide mission (doesn't he give a crap about his dad or sister anymore?) to Negan NOT killing him.  But... from what I recall, the episode really reflected how the entire event played out in the comics.  The big difference was Carl was much smaller/younger in the comics, so it was a little more believable that his judgment would be lacking, and that Negan would find him more amusing.  Anyway it made for a nice showcase for Carl and a little more insight into the Savior's world.

Spoiler for Hiden:
What I think is different is that previous episodes they showed that even with "intent" to harm a human, somehow programming overrode it.  So even though they thought they were self aware they weren't actually independently sentient.  Through suffering and/or finding/solving the maze, Dolores broke this last threshold and was able to physically harm William as well as Ford.  I don't know if we're supposed to assume the same is true with some of the others.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Killing everyone wasn't what made them become aware, suffering is what makes them become aware. As far as I can tell, the only arguably self-aware hosts by the end of the season were Delores and Maeve. And I say arguably because it still seems to me that at least Delores may have just been programed by Ford to start killing everyone. Same with the other hosts that invaded the town at the end. The decision by Maeve to leave the train seems to be her first independent idea contrary to her programing.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah because when Bernard showed her her programming, I believe it said "Infiltrate Mainland"

I've got a bunch more crap as well, but I'm not going to bother updating this thread anymore since nobody seems to read it or request anything.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun


EVERYONE who has a PC should try the demo out on Steam if they own a PC, and enjoy games like the old Commandos series. Hell, even if you don't try it out anyway. You may love it, and the demo is free!

Yeah, I'm trying this out and it seems awesome!  I never really played the old Commandos games beyond a demo or two, but this really satisfies my Tenchu ninja stealth assassin itch. 

I kind of wish it wasn't $40, but I also feel petty saying that.

$28.74 on GMG.

Damn you!  I can't really afford to get more games right now (or shouldn't), and I already have too many as it is.  But...   icon_neutral

Ok, this is exactly what I was looking for.  Of course I managed to die in the opening scene even with the overpowered weapons they give you, but I guess it took me a bit to get back into the rhythm.

Using the camera for PP as well as investigations?  Nice addition.

Selfies with zombies?  Classic.

Happy, jazzy Christmas music in the pause menus?  Brilliant!

Kinda janky base movement still?  Not great, but I can live with it.
