Re: Obscure Old Games

5. Faxanadu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsswXv-q6qk I -almost- cut this from the list because it's one of the weaker games I'll be talking about. A lot of 'obscure' lists go for 'obscure and playable' over 'obscure and good' (which is what this thread is) so you end up with a bunch of clunky bu...

Re: Hot game deals

The strike is getting surprisingly little coverage in the US, and little enough of it is mentioning the striking workers' specific call to boycott major subsidiaries like Whole Foods, Twitch, Audible, IMDB, etc. There's a limit to how much the AWS monopoly can really be avoided, but at least some so...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior III: you mean they made a sequel to that one game with all the instant death monsters?

And just like that, we return to our party. I have no idea how the Japanese version handles this scene, but I suspect it's very different and that the localization didn't quite handle it as gracefully as it maybe should have. That thing with the stiff shoulder... Were we supposed to get a massage? ...

Re: TV Series On The Television

But hey, now HBO is giving White Thanos gets a whole new stable of young women to play around with. And in a setting that justifies basically whatever misogynist backstory tropes he decides makes for a stronger character built out of trauma! I wonder how many of them will be whores?

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior III: you mean they made a sequel to that one game with all the instant death monsters?

Oh, also, I did some poking around in how DW3 handles damage/defense formulas, and the answer is complicated, but a reasonably close approximation is 1/2 attack power minus 1/4 defense power, with like 30%ish variance on the final number. It just helps when deciding if an upgrade is worth the cash:...

Re: Fallout

There is not a solo mode. "You are allowed to play single-player" means you're allowed to not group up with people. Since 100% of all humans in the game are players, with zero npcs, that doesn't leave much, no. Since apparently it is entirely possible to kill players who don't want to do p...

Is there any particular reason you're Vaulting a bunch of spare equipment? I can't recall anything to do with that ...

Re: QUILTBAG

A classic example of why we keep saying "no cops at pride".

The queer community is generally pretty good at dealing with toxic, hateful attacks like that. But cops will stop us.
