    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    There's so many damn system names in Stellaris that are dumb references.

    Arrakis, Sanctuary (Niven's Ringworld system), Omicron Persei, a bunch named after Star Wars characters, and Olimar just to name a few

    I love Stellaris, I probably start a new campaign at least once a month and just have fun roleplaying space-communist societies that get into grudge matches with slaver civilizations.

    Most importantly though there is a Lando system.

    Also Alderaan can show up as nothing but an asteroid belt.

    Hey guys, I need some help. Details in the spoiler.

    I am at my wits end trying to figure out what is wrong so I'm putting it out there.

    Could you take a look at the store page for game and let me know how it could improve?
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/703100/Parabolus/

    PMing me would be best, Best couple bits of feedback gets a key!

    What's the issue you're having right now? Just a lack of views/feedback?

    The store page, I was getting plently of views (altough this has dipped now the launch visabilty is ending) but so far hardly anyone is buying, or even downloading the demo. I figure it must be due to the page as the quality of the game has no bearing at this point (only once reviews come in).

    i actually bought onrush last month

    it's cool! it definitely launched at the wrong price and that's a potentially killer downspiral, but accessibility should help it

    it's also pretty depthless tho

    Waypoint has an article up about an indie horror game called "Total Chaos" that was started by the developer as a DOOM 2 mod back when he was a teenager 15 years ago.

    Wait, he actually released it and it's still a DOOM 2 mod?



    It doesn't look like a DOOM 2 mod.

    I asked some friends to take a look and give some feedback. Neither played the game or demo, this was their impressions from watching the trailers and description of the game based on the store page:
    Demographic - plays some games, female, 33 years old, graphic designer:
    Ummm
    For a space shooter it looks kinda slow
    They need more music because it was the same in each trailer
    Hard to see the space ship against the bg
    Graphics/ color combos look like N64 but high res
    Looks like the controls could be a bit clunky and slow since in one of the trailers the aliens? Ships? Big red things crash right into you
    Yeah it doesn't look very exciting
    Kinda like space invaders at a different angle
    No characters for me to invest in
    The description hints at some story, none of it is in the trailer

    Demographic - enthusiast gamer, male, 33, programmer:
    ok so I watched the videos... they seem to cut to new scenes too quickly
    also the videos should more explicitly point out features
    although the game is pretty minimal
    yeah I don't know man... this is not my kind of game at all
    I'm surprised something like this isn't a mobile game
    well what I was expecting to see is an evolution of the gameplay... the basic stuff they show at the beginning, and then evolving to crazy Raiden-esque stuff at the end with strafing, star fox "barrel rolls", and so on

    and it looks like there's no strategic depth whatsoever... from the trailers at least and it looks like there's no strategic depth whatsoever... from the trailers at least

    Stellaris 2.2 Patch Notes are out

    I remain very excited for this update. I've never actually played a multiplayer match of Stellaris, it's something I would like to try out at some point.

    A small story that got missed

    Eric Barone is ending his relationship with Chucklefish and going forward, Stardew Valley and his next game will be self-published

    Both sides say it’s an amicable split, he’s just gotten to the point where he no longer needs a publisher and can handle it himself

    Bit of a slap in the face to Chucklefish, who handled a lot of the non development aspects of the title pretty much from the begining. I guess he realised that his next game was going to be a hit no matter what so he didn't need to pay a publisher anymore.

    I mean, they got their Stardew Valley money, I think they're plenty happy with it

    It was strongest before it went 'open' world, and I was floundering with it after that point until I grinded out all the map upgrades and bought all the hints. Then it was fine again, albeit with some very hard platforming sections (fuck those ghosts!). I gave up on ever getting all the power seals too. The overall difficulty of the game is wildly all over the place as well.

    I'd be interested in a sequel that focuses on the stronger aspects of the gameplay and story telling.

    You made the right choice on the seals. I spent about 3 hours on the last 2 and the reward was not worth it.

    Still got the music stuck in my head from that game. It's a catchy tune.

    Yep, seals reward sucked. Writing sucked, which is typical of a Devolver Digital published game. Metroidvania design was poorly implemented (almost all the character upgrades are frontloaded in the linear portion of the game, unlike the standard Metroid vania, which made all the backtracking a tedious slog that felt like padding).

    Still, music was good, art was good, the twist was neat though fairly overhyped.

    The twist in The Messenger was hyped up as mind blowing so much I thought it was going to be another Oxenfree situation where I'm thinking "no other medium could do this and there's no reason a game shouldn't have done this years ago."

    Instead it's just
    Evoland but it goes from Ninja Gaiden III to Super Metroid.

    So I know Just Cause 4 is kinda an anti-indie game, being a massive AAA open-world Square-Enix joint, but it has an extremely great and extensive easter egg I never would have expected:

    You can find the cauldron and pickaxe from Getting Over It, which leads to an actual 2D GOI minigame with narration from Bennett Foddy
