Re: Netflix and Kill Me

It's a truism that watching The Good Place is good. It's also a truism that rewatching The Good Place makes it even better. I went to re-watch the first episode a few days ago and ended up going through more than half the season again in a sitting. (Or just follow Twitter people and comment threads ...

Re: Essential Games By Platform

I wouldn't, because those games are actually WILDLY fucking different; the gameplay flow is almost entirely unique between the two of them thanks to JSRF dropping the original graffiti mechanics. Level design in JSR leans harder toward the Tony Hawk skate park style, while level design in JSRF is mu...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Celeste feels like kind of a fantastic Brundlefly combination of Knytt and Meat Boy. Something about the locomotion (particularly the wall climb) and the atmosphere feels extremely Knytt (maybe it's the hallways full of eyeballs in one level?) while the rock solid challenge and largely single screen...
