Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, because I was sucked into a Skyrim Vortex and can't seem to get out of it, I have an SSD question.
If I use the Steam Mover thing, will it move my save files and mods over too? Doesn't that get a little messy?
Fairly certain it just moves the entire folder. But saves generally aren't in the game folders anyway. If the mods are in the game's folder they should move to. Save files shouldn't really matter for most games.
So, I played and beat Lego The Videogaming of the Movie the other day. I'm not sure why I felt compelled to play this. Probably largely because it's been a stressful couple days and wanted something I didn't care about to be my focus of my game time, which is why I was also regretfully revisiting the Call of Duty well with finally playing MW2's campaign.
Anyway, it's kinda... bland? I mean, the Lego games are all a bit samey, but they've also evolved quite a bit. This one is stuck just retelling the movie's story, so it doesn't really get to have much freedom, which is one of the series strength when it comes to emulating and lampooning its' source material. The cinematics are just the movie scenes but some seem oddly stripped of music and sound effects, so they often feel a bit strange (assuming someone cheaped out and didn't want to license it?). The hub levels are pretty small. Most of the jokes are just the film's dialogue. Sooooooo I guess, if you really like the movie and maybe haven't seen it in so long your memory is hazy, it might be worth a pick up. I suppose the fact that I beat it goes to show how different it is to the rest since in those I tend to get into the collectibles and exploring. In this I kinda just barreled through.
Some pretty great set design. I feel weird being this negative about a Lego game, but hey, there it is. Really feels like the sort of generic licensed stuff that's slowly died down over the years.
That macro ends on the perfect note of tone deafness. A defender of his saying he's getting it as bad as Quinn.
I mean, that thing is REALLY padded if that's supposed to show the ugly side. There's definetly a few shitheads in there. But there's also things like some dude coveting his birds? I guess it is needed to make it look larger.
