Re: What have you watched recently?

Hit a bunch of horror movies: Ghostwatch still holds up, I think. Their fake outs and misdirections work well, and I enjoy the more subtle and subdued kinds of ghost stories, so all the buildup had me going. The Stone Tape was alright but frankly I was distracted the entire time because everyone was...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

Receiver 2, which is Receiver 1 but moreso in every way. Which is pretty good. Receiver was a quick 7-day development challenge experiment whose design philosophy was more or less, "Firearms are more complicated that video games typically simulate." You don't press R to reload. Depending o...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

Started on Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass. So far I just might most be a fan of how seamlessly the game lets you skip encounters. If you're overlevelled you just... press cancel and you skip it. Don't turn them off, don't make you futz with menus in case you do want to grind, just press cancel to skip...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

Square's been registering trademarks for Live-A-Live outside of Japan, which is kinda exciting. It was a JRPG on the SNES that was pretty unique in having seven stories with wildly different genres (the caveman chapter has no dialog and is all slapstick. The sci-fi chapter is Alien from the cat's P...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

I guess by that I have been playing Pokemon Go, but it rarely seems to activate the "game" sense in my brain. I usually file it as an activity. Like reading an article on my phone or checking Discord, pop on to Pokemon Go to see what's happening. Although after years it finally has gotten ...

House Flipper updating and crashing whenever I try to go to the house I was working on is like when your stress relief ball rips.

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

No One Lives Under the Lighthouse is a pretty good short retro-horror game in the same vein as the Haunted PS1 Demo Disc collection that came out a couple of months back. The look is definitely evocative of Silent Hill 1-esque PS1 games with chunky models and only-so-fine textures. Including some of...
