    Popup Dungeon may be a good one as well.

    Oh man Shining Force brings back memories.

    I can confirm that WarGroove is good! It is closer to Advance Wars than SF/FE due to each map having an economy and production rather than a set number of units.

    Yeah

    WarGroove doesn't have any sense of character progression from what I played.

    I'm looking for that distinct character/leveling up/tactics kinda game

    again, it's really hard for me to describe why something like Shining Force is what I want but not FF Tactics as they check a lot of similar boxes.

    Disgaea and the other NIS games are honestly the closest I can think of structurally, but they're also a lot.

    Like, those idle games that are all about just building your machine to feed the number curve. Except a tactics game.
    Edit: though if you only care about story they're easily completable without falling too deep down that rabbit hole.
    They're just... very much built for rabbit chasers.

    At least one of the firms that tried to short GameStop is already talking lawsuit and by god I hope they try to sue a subreddit.

    "How dare you stop us from manipulating the market by manipulating our manipulation"?

    Shorting is not market manipulation. Neither is mass, organized, decentralized action, but it's closer to market manipulation than shorting stock.

    Isn't one of the shorters infamous for basically shorting stock for companies he considers "weak" then producing financial videos declaring as such from his place of "authority"? That seems pretty manipulative to me.

    Saying "I am doing this thing and here is why" is not market manipulation, no.

    From what I've read they are not telling people what they're doing regarding their own financial stake in the company, they're telling people that X company is going to die for whatever reasons and then reaping the profits as their lemmings do what lemmings do best

    Reminder to please quote and source your tweets

    tube hey just to be clear

    do you want the full text of a tweet copied for every single tweet?

    what should we do for tweets that are primarily just videos or images?

    and for things like game release tweets, like I have in the OP, is that game date/title/description enough context, or should I also copy the text?

    @Brolo, ideally the text would be quoted, for people who can't open tweets. You're kind of a unique use case for this one.

    Scavengers Studio creative director accused of belittling, screaming at, groping employees
    Current and former employees of Season studio say Simon Darveau's toxic actions were enabled by co-owner Amélie Lamarche

    GamesIndustry.biz has spoken to nine current and former employees of the Montreal-based Scavengers Studio who worked with the company at some point over the past four years, all of whom spoke with us under the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal. They described a company largely composed of talented people working on projects they deeply cared about across both Darwin Project and Season. However, they also said that the excitement and creativity surrounding both games was tainted by a toxic work environment fostered by the studio's co-founders: creative director Simon Darveau (formerly founder of Spearhead Games and a designer at Ubisoft) and his romantic partner at the time of the studio's founding, CEO Amélie Lamarche.

    Was that Grit Gate? For me it was hyper intelligent bears who sent me to Golgotha, where I have, so far, narrowly, avoided being processed with the sewage.

    The way Golgotha works is this:

    There are four chutes on the surface, randomly arranged, that you can jump down. One leads to mostly fire traps. One leads to mostly spark traps. One leads to mostly acid traps. And one leads to crabs.

    If you jump down the crab hole you're fucking dead and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it. I've never come out of the crab hole. I can't conceptualize what the process would look like even as a hypothetical. True Kin can use a Sphinx Salt injector before jumping and then go back in time and pick a different one if it turns out it was the crab hole, but mutants don't get that effect, so I have no idea how to not have a random 25% chance of certain death on a mutant.

    One former employee described an incident that occurred during a team meeting on Season, where one group was presenting its idea to have the main character, Abby, be able to play the guitar. Someone remarked in front of the group that this feature "wasn't realistic" because the guitar was too complicated for a woman, and that she should play a ukulele instead. This remark went unchallenged.
    What.

    I think I would immediately get up and walk out of the building if I heard that.

    so uh hey, Celeste 2 is out
    https://mattmakesgames.itch.io/celeste-classic-2
    https://radicaldreamland.bandcamp.com/album/celeste-classic-2-lanis-trek-original-sound-version

    For Celeste's 3rd birthday Maddy Thorson and the other Celeste folks made a new sequel (in 3 days) to Celeste Classic, the original PICO-8 game that the full Celeste we all know is based on. It uses an entirely different movement system, it's neat, plus a new soundtrack by Lena Raine
    We said we probably wouldn't make a sequel to Celeste, but we never said anything about Celeste Classic

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate @Brolo who has given us, among many many other excellent things, Star Citizen experiences, daily lists of games coming out, and Freespace 2 references in regards to stock prices?

    Because Brolo, I appreciate you.
