    @Corsini dropped a code on me for Maize!
    Maize is a first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

    That sounds pretty amazing. Thank you very much! :heartbeat:

    I beat COD1:UO with the red nub mouse.

    Dark days

    Plowed through Doom 2, and wow, courtyard and citadel were interesting. But Gotcha....dude...seriously. Fuck you, John Carmack, but in a good way

    Gotcha was designed by John Romero, so you've got something else to thank him for besides Daikatana

    (incidentally, Sandy Peterson designed The Courtyard and Citadel)

    Okay, so we're finally on the 12th page, where we're not afraid of any gift-related threats from unscrupulous individuals. So I should go into more details about my plans for the charity drive.


    I'm currently having some real-life problems, so this is the plan, but absolutely not 100% guaranteed yet. We will be having another charity drive this December, starting on the 15th (Which is 1 week before the steam sale starts) and stopping on the 5th the final day of the steam winter sale. For those of you who werent around for our previous sale drives i'll go over the plan real quick. We celebrate our sales and saving money by giving what we can spare to help others who are not as fortunate. We donate to Child's Play charity during the steam sale to help children who are in hospitals or otherwise sick experience something that can distract them from their own bad times. How do you contribute? You simply donate at https://childsplaycharity.org/ and then send me a screenshot of the receipt. You do NOT send any money to myself or any other forumer, you simply provide PROOF that you donated and we'll add you to the charity drive list. Once we reach certain goal amounts we'll have rewards, usually other forumers doing streams or other actions to entertain people.

    For instance, if we reach $500 in donations i'll host another Backlog challenge this January, helping people find an excuse to clear out some of the games they've just purchased. :p If you would like to help out in the planning, or suggest goals feel free to message me on the boards.


    Reminder: THIS DRIVE IS NOT ACTIVE YET, if you donate now its super nice but will not count. We're still planning everything to make this as good as we can. Also theres not 100% guarantee the drive will happen yet, should something unforeseen happen and pop up.


    If you have ANY questions or concerns please message me. I promise I'll respond ASAP. <3

    Is RE4 HD out the box(so to speak) comparable to the fan HD patch?

    I've always wanted to try that out.
    No. The textures for RE4HD are still pretty low resolution. the HD patch is on top of the HD version and brings the textures waaay up in resolution. most of them being remade from scratch using source photos.

    Guess I'll find out! It was only $5, not a bad experiment.

    Some of us couldn't get the sign-ups to load at first and are stuck with Q2 2022.

    Maybe lots of people will cancel and we'll get shifted up.

    I just installed the HD pack and tried it out but didn't notice a difference.

    That's a shame, I was following it for a while and it looked like a world of difference...

    It's a pretty huge download, too. Guess I'll see...

    If people get shifted up they should still get the option to retain their original date, to allow for getting the money together. No reason anyone should get bumped further down the line for not having the cash earlier than they anticipated they needed to.

    Yeah I've seen the before/after photos and they always look great but I just couldn't tell you if it looked any better than the HD textures to be honest. I didn't play very far though as I just finished my first ever Pro run late August.

    I guess page 12 is as good as ever. I'll be doing my Extra-Life 2021 marathon on Saturday, November 27th. It's later than usual and it'll only be ~12 hours, but I imagine I'll start around 10am EST and go until I get tired which will probably be around midnight. My goal will be $2k as always, and I'll be raffling the usual steam prizes (One steam game of your choice, and a $100USD digital Steam Card) from the previous runs, but nothing physical this time around. All you need to do to enter the raffle is donate at least $5 by the following Monday morning. I'll pull winners then and post them here :). Try to include your PA name in the donation message so I can message you.

    https://www.extra-life.org/participant/Koopah is the dono link! I'll have a Twitch extension up on my channel as well thanks to Extra-Life making streamer's lives easy.

    Thanks friends! <3

    Before I forget (I was kind of tired last night, sorry for not saying anything then), @Spoit was his usual twitchy self and hit me with a code for Star Wars Galaxies! I'm looking forward to giving this a try- mostly because I think it's going to be the closest to my dream Star Wars game as I'm going to get, unfortunately...

    Mine's Q1, and I hope that's January (or bumped to December), and not, like, the end of March.
