    Any of you folks trying out the Gigantic game preview?

    Played one round of it so far, totally stomped the enemy team but not sure if I get the flow of the game at all yet.

    I haven't played it recently, but I played it a fair amount a month or two back and wouldn't mind giving it another spin if you want to group up.

    I remember playing a couple games at PAX way back in the goddamn mists of time

    I played a little bit of Gigantic in its previous era of beta and I ALSO never got the flow of the game at all. It seems to be a persistant problem. It was always incredibly unclear to me what most of the various "towers" were actually contributing and how important investing in them was supposed to be.

    Oof.

    I saw that on twitter but skimmed past it, that Windjammers of 2017 line is real rough.

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    I legitimately don't know what all those Windjammers clones are gonna do now

    Nobody wants a new Windjammers, they just wanted a close enough substitute

    But now the real thing is coming back to eat all their lunches

    Any bets on someone breaking out the PS4 release of Neo Turf Masters on UPF today?

    The cash grabs will die, the smart ones that innovated on the formula in fun ways will probably do okay

    there is still the possibility that windjammers comes back and turns out to be a crappy cash in on enthusiasm and not a good game

    You are Narita Boy, a legendary digital hero in an epic quest through simultaneous dimensions.

    The aesthetic of the game is inspired by retro pixel adventures (Castlevania, Another World, Double Dragon) with a modern touch (Superbrothers, Sword and Sorcery) and an 80s plot homage (Ready Player One, He-Man, The Last Starfighter), accompanied by the retro synth touch of the old glory days.

    If it is, it seems like an effect that could be made toggleable if people don't like it. So I hope they do that.

    Has anyone tried Epic Manager? I completely missed that it came out in the game/sale flood in December and got a notification this week when it went on sale and I realised I had heard nothing about it.

    Just wait for the sequence inspired by the 1980's classic WarGames

    Also where you have to watch a 20 minute cutscene of the character acting out the climactic scene from Die Hard

    Also something about John Hughes

    and two straight pages of of just listing books and films that came out

    and you can tell that the main character is passionate about 80s stuff because one person says that a movie sucks and is for babies and the main character responds that no, that person sucks and is for babies and the movie is great because is has [actor name] in and that's the fucking deepest that this person can go when describing media and the book plays it off as an "epic argument that draws in crowds"

    or when the main character is like "i can't skip even one day of cyber school or they will expel me so it's going to be difficult for me to do this thing" and then two pages later after doing the thing goes "well i had good enough marks to skip the rest of the school year so i'm just going to forget about it as an important presence in this story"

    But yeah, it's not a great book. I liked it fine at the time I read it but in retrospect it is real real bad

    I got caught in a conversation with an Agile software consultant who is supposed to be building up knowledge leadership at my work who cornered me into talking about how loves Ready Player One and what did I think of it?


    That conversation was about as enjoyable as you can imagine.

    The movie won’t have any of my films in it. I’m not putting myself in this movie…They reference so many ’80s movies. I’m doing the whole pop culture thing. I’m just going to leave myself out of it. I can’t do that. Too self-referential.
    That includes stuff he worked on but didn't direct, like BTTF etc. Maybe a little too far in the other direction? But I can understand why he'd do it.

    i do think that the idea itself isn't irredeemable

    like, there are some ideas that are raised by the setting, in that in a horrible future young people become obsessed with a nostalgia for a past they never even experienced. This in turn stifles newer creativity, and culture becomes more focused on dogmatically reconstructing older media without even an understanding of what made that media resonate in the first place. And thus the setting's "nerd culture" is solely based around liking a set list of approved media.


    And if you took this setting as a criticism of nerd culture, and maybe had the characters realise something about the value of creativity or something it might work.

    Or even just thought about why people might like nerdy things and why these books and movies and shows might resonate these people.



    Instead the entire book just felt like one giant "oh, so you say you like star wars? i bet you can't even say how many parsecs it took han solo to do the kessle run"
