Can I Get a Gamer "Hell Yeah"? / A game a day 2018
« on: August 27, 2018, 07:27:15 AM »
I got a Switch shortly before summer.

So surprising nobody at all, my gaming for the last few months have consisted mostly of Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors. While I have played a bunch of things prior to Switch acquisition... it's mostly been not new games. A few have made their way in there - West of Loathing, Terra Feminarum - and the Switch has of course been the biggest source of new games for me this year.

But I've got other suff to play. Things to clear out of my backlog.

I almost thought I weren't going to do this this year, but decided, alright, this is actually a good time to do it.

You know the drill. Five days, five unplayed (or very little played) games from my backlog. That's where I'll start. We'll see if there'll be another week of it. Weekend stays as cleanup days where I continue playing what I've started and I also have a meeting this Sunday. But I should be able to get some stuff done.

And I'm really only making it a thread here for tradition's sake, despite the forum being quite inactive.

So let's roll.

Games

The Posting Range / The closest we've come to Saber's packagefest
« on: September 17, 2017, 03:01:32 PM »
So remember when Saber sent me a package?

Yeah.

That was meant to be part of a dual fest where he sends me a package and I send him a package. I ended up actually sending him a package, almost exactly two years ago. He acquired this package on the 26th of September 2015. A Friday. He actually posted pictures in #nuzlocketalk, the IRC channel I was in only because he was - and then he never posted the actual fest.

But anyway.

If you want to see what kind of crap I sent to Saber, complete with live reactions - here's the IRC logs from that day. Almost completely unedited. Also some backstory but yeah.

SO HERE WE GO.

(18:28:59) (SABERinBLUE) So I'm waiting in line at Starbucks but I have this...thing in the car with me
(18:29:01) (Jimcloud) No.
(18:29:11) (SABERinBLUE) It speaks in a strange tongue
(18:29:13) (Jimcloud) SABERinBLUE: Has it tried to eat you yet?
(18:29:22) (~Pillowcase) is it the wife
(18:29:24) (SABERinBLUE) And says "not sorry" on the top
(18:30:56) (~Pillowcase) oh it's the thing you got from the magical quest
(18:31:16) (Jimcloud) I kind of thought that was obvious enough it didn't need stated, Pillow
(18:31:16) (Jimcloud) :v
(18:31:32) (~Pillowcase) well i hadn't heard of it before
(18:31:39) (~Pillowcase) so i had no frame of reference for it
(18:31:51) (~Pillowcase) but when he said something was written on the top
(18:32:15) (Jimcloud) Although that being said
(18:32:24) (Jimcloud) I feel the need to quote a few lines here out of context
(18:32:32) (Jimcloud) namely the following
(18:32:42) (Jimcloud) [12:29:09] <SABERinBLUE> It speaks in a strange tongue
(18:32:44) (Jimcloud) [12:29:10] <Jimcloud> SABERinBLUE: Has it tried to eat you yet?
(18:32:49) (Jimcloud) [12:29:22] <SABERinBLUE> And says "not sorry" on the top
(18:32:51) (Jimcloud) [12:30:53] <~Pillowcase> oh it's the thing you got from the magical quest
(18:36:45) (Jimcloud) YES OKAY THANK YOU TEXTBOOK I THINK WE GET IT BY NOW
(18:36:47) (Jimcloud) TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE INCREASE WITH DEPTH

(18:42:40) (Jimcloud) Sinspawn... I wanna say Gui
(18:42:59) (Jimcloud) Aww, nuts, not Gui
(18:43:02) (ShinyDustox) Geneaux apparently
(18:43:07) (Jackinev) I haven't played KH2.5 for a long long time
(18:43:16) (~Pillowcase) what's wrong with the ffx gui
(18:43:20) (Jimcloud) Geneaux yeah
(18:43:20) (Jackinev) Aaaand now I HAVE to play it
(18:43:27) (ShinyDustox) damnit
(18:43:35) (ShinyDustox) ill finish FFX then play Zestiria
(18:43:37) (ShinyDustox) then 2.5
(18:43:52) (Jackinev) 2.5 comes before everything else
(18:44:00) (Jimcloud) ShinyDustox: Did I mention to you I started playing 2.5 the other day? :V
(18:44:03) (Jimcloud) Just recently bought it
(18:44:12) (ShinyDustox) oh no no you didnt
(18:44:15) (Jimcloud) I almost threw my controller into the screen no less than four times in the opening segment
(18:44:18) (ShinyDustox) meh i already played KH2 but
(18:44:26) (ShinyDustox) joy
(18:44:29) (ShinyDustox) i didnt save after the boss
(18:44:32) (Jimcloud) ;~;
(18:44:41) (Jackinev) Rip Dustox
(18:44:46) (Jimcloud) I remember that boss being easy but
(18:44:49) (Jimcloud) I also overgrinded so
(18:45:01) (ShinyDustox) oh wait i did
(18:45:03) (ShinyDustox) nvr mind
(18:45:04) (ShinyDustox) whew
(18:45:05) (Jimcloud) pff
(18:45:05) (ShinyDustox) thank you past me
(18:45:09) (ShinyDustox) yeah i overgrinded a bit too
(18:45:16) (ShinyDustox) missing some ability spheres though
(18:45:21) (Jimcloud) Are we talking "Yuna knows Fira" overgrinded or
(18:45:22) (ShinyDustox) i remembered that was my problem with grinding here
(18:45:37) (ShinyDustox) oh you used expert grid
(18:45:40) (Jimcloud) I did
(18:45:42) (Jackinev) Uhm... should I play Birth By Sleep
(18:45:43) (Jimcloud) expert grid is amazing
(18:45:46) (ShinyDustox) do it
(18:45:52) (ShinyDustox) naw i wanted to do it from scratch
(18:45:58) (Jackinev) Or start grinding like hell for the Organization 13 rematches?
(18:46:15) (ShinyDustox) do org 13
(18:46:29) (ShinyDustox) i havent played X for a long time so rather did it for the start
(18:46:50) (Jackinev) >Org 13
(18:46:50) (Jimcloud) Well "expert" grid doesn't necessarily mean it's not for beginners :V
(18:46:51) (Jimcloud) Just.
(18:46:55) (Jackinev) >critical mode
(18:46:59) (Jimcloud) You have to make sure you know what you're doing when you branch out
(18:47:04) (Jimcloud) or you will dearly regret it
(18:47:07) (Jackinev) Easy peasy
(18:47:18) (ShinyDustox) yeah i wanted to avoid that
(18:47:25) (ShinyDustox) didnt want to spoil the experience
(18:47:33) (ShinyDustox) by suddenly having a handicap
(18:47:59) (Jimcloud) of course normal grid doesn't stop you from doing that, it just makes it harder
(18:48:09) (Jimcloud) expert grid has increased grinding opportunities : 3
(18:48:20) (ShinyDustox) how did you get all the ability spheres?
(18:48:20) (Jackinev) Switching to mobile

(18:49:12) (Jimcloud) Oh yeah
(18:49:24) (Jimcloud) http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Piranha_%28Final_Fantasy_X%29 I grinded these guys at the very beginning for them because I anticipated a dearth
(18:49:36) (KennyMan666) (18:29:24) (SABERinBLUE) And says "not sorry" on the top
(18:49:37) (KennyMan666) So
(18:49:42) (KennyMan666) For a bit of context
(18:50:00) (ShinyDustox) i see
(18:50:09) (Jackinev) Oh hey Kenny
(18:50:21) (KennyMan666) http://kenny.next-era.net/boxcanyon/018.jpg This is the package Saber sent to me
(18:50:48) (Jackinev) XD
(18:50:56) (Jimcloud) ShinyDustox: Mi'ihen Highroad will also have some nice ability sphere opportunities in Dual Horns
(18:51:02) (Jimcloud) pfff
(18:51:03) (KennyMan666) For further context
(18:51:06) (Jackinev) What's inside that package?
(18:51:07) (KennyMan666) This is a story that stars
(18:51:12) (KennyMan666) Goddamn I don't even know how long ago it was
(18:51:15) (ShinyDustox) hm
(18:51:16) (KennyMan666) Okay kids
(18:51:18) (KennyMan666) Gather round
(18:51:22) (Jackinev) Yay!
(18:51:30) (ShinyDustox) ill probably play until Luca before i sleep
(18:51:40) (KennyMan666) It's time for a story from the times when Saber was still a person with friends
(18:51:52) (KennyMan666) I think this even predates Apocalypse Johto
(18:51:57) (Jackinev) That has to be a LOOOOONG time ago
(18:52:00) (KennyMan666) It is
(18:52:01) (KennyMan666) So
(18:52:03) (Jackinev) ;)
(18:52:24) (KennyMan666) Saber was, I think, working at some comic/book shop whatever thing
(18:52:35) (KennyMan666) This shop had some kind of sale, which included Star Wars books
(18:52:36) (KennyMan666) Now
(18:52:52) (KennyMan666) Being absolutely insufferable Star Wars geeks is one of those things that mine and Saber's relationship is based on
(18:53:04) (KennyMan666) Despite this I had not read a lot of Star Wars books
(18:53:18) (Jimcloud) So he sent you homework
(18:53:19) (Jimcloud) :V
(18:53:38) (KennyMan666) So I tossed $20 at Saber through Paypal for him to buy books for me, on his idea
(18:53:47) (KennyMan666) And then he was going to send these to me
(18:53:50) (KennyMan666) The books were bought
(18:53:54) (KennyMan666) The package was not sent
(18:54:06) (Jackinev) O.o
(18:54:10) (Jimcloud) tut tut
(18:54:11) (KennyMan666) A bit later I was in the market for purchasing a capture device for video games
(18:54:16) (KennyMan666) Specifically, a Dazzle
(18:54:20) (KennyMan666) Because I'm a speedrunner
(18:54:36) (KennyMan666) And a Dazzle is a USB device that you feed RCA input and then you record it
(18:54:49) (KennyMan666) So there was this guy selling refurbs on eBay
(18:54:57) (KennyMan666) Problem: He didn't ship to Sweden
(18:54:59) (KennyMan666) So
(18:55:01) (KennyMan666) I hit up Saber
(18:55:11) (KennyMan666) Because he still had things to send me
(18:55:15) (KennyMan666) So the Dazzle is shipped to him
(18:55:21) (KennyMan666) And he puts it in the package
(18:55:27) (KennyMan666) The package was not sent
(18:55:33) (Jackinev) :P
(18:55:48) (KennyMan666) At some point during this, I even toss Saber more money for the shipping
(18:56:07) (KennyMan666) The package was not sent
(18:56:29) (KennyMan666) At this point the package had become a running gag, a legendary artifact, a concept
(18:56:48) (KennyMan666) It was also decided at some point that since Saber had gotten a new DS Flashcart he would send me his old one
(18:57:08) (Jackinev) And the package was not sent?
(18:57:14) (KennyMan666) I believe I might have originally said "give your old one to me lol" or something like that when he said he had gotten a new one
(18:57:24) (KennyMan666) The package was in not sent.
(18:58:03) (Jimcloud) Okay, so I refuse to believe that this package went all Brave Little Toaster to get to Sweden
(18:58:13) (KennyMan666) At this point, even another one of our mutual internet friends (well, also lives in Texas, so Saber had in fact met this guy) was starting to remind him about it
(18:58:17) (KennyMan666) Well basically
(18:58:51) (KennyMan666) Eventually, the package was indeed sent, but it had been kind of a long time inbetween the latest addition to the contents of the package and the actual sending of it
(18:59:05) (KennyMan666) Apocalypse Johto was running at this point
(18:59:14) (KennyMan666) And at some time
(18:59:21) (KennyMan666) I think it was 100 pages or something
(18:59:32) (KennyMan666) I registered on the forum and posted in his thread
(18:59:41) (Jimcloud) Pfff
(18:59:42) (KennyMan666) Mostly being like "This is my pal Saber and he's a cool guy"
(18:59:54) (KennyMan666) "And goddamn you're actually still doing this"
(19:00:11) (KennyMan666) Remember that I had seen his first webcomic project
(19:00:23) (Jackinev) What was that?
(19:00:24) (KennyMan666) It had gotten a few pages, then canceled and restarted
(19:00:31) (KennyMan666) Ad this happened like three times
(19:00:39) (Jimcloud) and then it was finally actually canceled
(19:00:48) (KennyMan666) It was called The Paragon Project and was some science fiction whatever
(19:00:53) (KennyMan666) Yeah it was abandones for real
(19:01:03) (Jimcloud) The reason for Saber's site's weird name :v
(19:01:03) (KennyMan666) So after I make this post where I'm just praising
(19:01:06) (KennyMan666) Praising Saber
(19:01:20) (KennyMan666) He writes to me on IRC and is like "I read your post and I feel like an asshole"
(19:01:28) (Jackinev) XD
(19:01:37) (KennyMan666) So the package arrives
(19:01:39) (KennyMan666) Now
(19:01:46) (KennyMan666) Even before this package was sent
(19:02:10) (KennyMan666) Even around the time when it wasn't "the package", but only "a box of Star Wars books", the idea was born
(19:02:18) (KennyMan666) That he sends me a package and I send him a package
(19:02:42) (KennyMan666) So when I got the package I actually started assembling some items in a box
(19:02:47) (KennyMan666) This became a thing that was like
(19:02:49) (KennyMan666) Lying around for a while
(19:02:55) (Jimcloud) Shockingly
(19:02:58) (KennyMan666) And I was like "maybe I should get done and fox it"
(19:03:00) (KennyMan666) *fix
(19:03:02) (KennyMan666) Er
(19:03:03) (KennyMan666) Ship
(19:03:04) (KennyMan666) The fuck
(19:03:07) (KennyMan666) Anwyay
(19:03:15) (Jackinev) Curse you autocorrect?
(19:03:17) (KennyMan666) There was a specific thing that held it up really
(19:03:20) (KennyMan666) lol no
(19:03:25) (KennyMan666) I don't use autocorrect on anything else
(19:03:26) (KennyMan666) ever
(19:03:33) (KennyMan666) else, what the fuck
(19:03:35) (KennyMan666) I can't type today
(19:03:35) (Jackinev) Lol
(19:03:43) (Jackinev) (Always blame the autocorrect)
(19:03:51) (KennyMan666) So, anyway
(19:04:33) (KennyMan666) The idea was basically an international packagefest in two parts ("Packagefest" being the part where you get the package and open it and take pictures of the stuff and post it on POS and I'll link to my part when this story is done)
(19:04:39) (KennyMan666) Like 3 weeks ago
(19:04:42) (KennyMan666) I go like y'know what
(19:04:46) (KennyMan666) I have money now
(19:05:04) (KennyMan666) Let'f fucking do this
(19:05:07) (KennyMan666) *Let's
(19:05:09) (KennyMan666) So
(19:05:09) (KennyMan666) Well
(19:05:13) (Jimcloud) It was done
(19:05:14) (KennyMan666) I used another box
(19:05:17) (KennyMan666) Gathered things
(19:05:26) (KennyMan666) IT's a mixture of stuff
(19:05:41) (KennyMan666) Half specifically prepared/purchased gifts for Saber
(19:05:47) (KennyMan666) Half things where I think I'm being funny
(19:05:49) (KennyMan666) And half filler
(19:06:00) (KennyMan666) And well
(19:06:02) (KennyMan666) That's about it
(19:06:06) (KennyMan666) The package is now in Saber's hands
(19:06:11) (KennyMan666) Or car, as the case may be
(19:06:13) (Jackinev) How long have you been preparing this package for?
(19:06:17) (KennyMan666) And I'm just awaiting his reactions
(19:06:19) (KennyMan666) Well
(19:06:33) (KennyMan666) The origins was basically around when I got the package from Saber
(19:06:36) (KennyMan666) And that was in May 2012
(19:06:42) (Jackinev) O.o
(19:06:52) (KennyMan666) But most of that time it's just been sitting in my storage room without me doing much
(19:07:00) (Jackinev) We definitely have to see the pictures now Saber
(19:07:11) (GoGoGogoat) we need the pics of kenny's box too
(19:07:13) (KennyMan666) When I decided it was time to Get It Done I took like 1-2 days to get it assembled
(19:07:19) (KennyMan666) http://thedailypos.org/forum/index.php?topic=10782.msg144449#msg144449
(19:09:06) (Jimcloud) Why is there rope in the box
(19:09:17) (KennyMan666) In the end the package I sent to Saber ended up weighing 2.2 kgs
(19:09:29) (KennyMan666) That's a thing I asked myself when I received it
(19:09:34) (KennyMan666) It has still not been answered
(19:10:03) (KennyMan666) But yeah this is the conclusion of something that has been in the making for so, so long
(19:10:14) (KennyMan666) God I don't even remember WHEN Saber got those books for me originally
(19:10:20) (KennyMan666) Hmm
(19:10:25) (Jimcloud) http://kenny.next-era.net/boxcanyon/028.jpg okay the thing on the right is, like, obviously a Gyarados made out of pipe cleaner and... stuff
(19:10:36) (KennyMan666) Let's actually check if my Paypal account has records of that transaction
(19:10:46) (KennyMan666) Yeah person in the thread figured that out too
(19:11:47) (KennyMan666) Apparently my Paypal history only goes back to 2014
(19:11:49) (KennyMan666) BUT WAIT
(19:11:59) (KennyMan666) I should have an e-mail confirmation of the transaction
(19:12:15) (Jackinev) Well, in the meantime, I had enough time to get all my forms to level 5
(19:12:27) (Jackinev) And I can now play Titan Paradox cup
(19:12:52) (Jackinev) >suggested level: 80
(19:13:04) (Jackinev) >on critical mode
(19:13:13) (Jackinev) >I'm level 56
(19:13:19) (Jimcloud) Welp
(19:13:21) (Jackinev) Yeah this is gonna be good
(19:13:51) (Jackinev) Crap
(19:14:15) (Jackinev) Titan cup is the one with the points system health thingy
(19:14:20) (Jackinev) And I HATE it
(19:14:29) (Jackinev) This is gonna be real good
(19:14:35) (Jimcloud) Note to self: be very careful about reading words out of the corner of your eye
(19:14:40) (Jimcloud) or else you might find a Polaris system
(19:14:48) (KennyMan666) Here is a transaction for $22 USD to saberinblue@gmail.com with the subject HEY SABER and the message YOU'RE A FAG
(19:14:51) (KennyMan666) So I assume it's this
(19:14:57) (Jackinev) XD
(19:15:04) (KennyMan666) And this transaction happened in 2008
(19:15:10) (Jackinev) O.o
(19:15:23) (Jackinev) Four years for a freaking box
(19:15:26) (KennyMan666) Remember, I first MET Saber in 2004
(19:15:33) (KennyMan666) Well, internet met
(19:16:05) (KennyMan666) And with my package reaching Saber
(19:16:18) (KennyMan666) This closes up something that was seven years in the making
(19:16:40) (Jackinev) That's the internet man
(19:16:41) (KennyMan666) That's more than half the time I have been friends with Saber
(19:17:10) (Jackinev) Well, I'm gonna try not to die horribly in the first round
(19:17:46) (KennyMan666) Man
(19:17:56) (KennyMan666) The very first time I sent Saber money for something was in 2006
(19:18:47) (KennyMan666) That was part of getting Saber money for a new mouse so he could resume drawing his fully MS Paint comics
(19:18:55) (KennyMan666) A bunch of us from a forum pitched in for that
(19:19:18) (KennyMan666) And just so you don't think that Saber was ever anything but a disappointment, I think we got one more comic out of that
(19:20:01) (KennyMan666) And looking at old Saber e-mails oh my god
(19:20:09) (KennyMan666) "Welcome to Paragon Sigma Forum Forums"
(19:20:18) (Jimcloud) ._.
(19:20:25) (SABERinBLUE) Kenny you sent me a jack chick tract what the fuck
(19:20:29) (KennyMan666) I can't even remember that he had a forum for that once upon a time
(19:20:35) (Jimcloud) what

(19:20:55) (SABERinBLUE) Okay I'm just gonna throw the pictures in here

(19:25:39) (KennyMan666) The Wii condom and the thing inside it are the two things that I after had sent the package was like "Wait why the fuck did I put those there"
(19:25:46) (Jackinev) Those are the most random things I've ever seen
(19:26:14) (KennyMan666) And I had managed to forget I put the wet wipe in there

(19:26:51) (Jackinev) Total NBA 1996
(19:27:06) (KennyMan666) I had originally just put the holo-picture in the box and then decided "lol let's send the entire thing"

(19:28:18) (Jackinev) Well, now you know how to build a Klippan
(19:28:40) (Jackinev) Err... guitar ninja?
(19:28:45) (KennyMan666) I actually sent you that one because I bought two of those unopened and they turned out to be the same one
(19:28:52) (KennyMan666) Jackinev: Explanations later
(19:29:02) (Jackinev) Oh ok :P
(19:29:24) (Jackinev) And what's the Astro Boy thing?

Can I Get a Gamer "Hell Yeah"? / A game a day: Class of 2017
« on: June 26, 2017, 06:53:06 AM »
And here we go again! No way I'm not doing this. Starting earlier this year.

Somehow I've actually played a bunch of new stuff this year, though - but summer, traditionally, means even more gaming. So let's keep doing that.

I had some sort of vague plan that Breath of the Wild was going to be my main summer game. But I want the Switch version, since I know I want a Switch anyway. And I really don't have the money for that. I won't have the money for that until I get a job. So.

Instead of that, for now, let's dive back into the backlog!

Format's going to be the same as previous years, 'cause why change a winning formula? Each day, I will pick one game. I will play that game a bunch. I will post about the game before I start playing and add my thoughts on it at the end of the day.

New games will be played Monday-Friday, and the weekend is for going back to resume playing stuff I didn't beat, or play some other things.

It'll be split up this year, for a number of reasons. Next week I'm probably going to my parent's place, plus SGDQ starts on Sunday. Then there's ESA (where I'll be running two games) and a convention. So I'm going to do one week now, and then probably one week in August.

So let's roll.

Can I Get a Gamer "Hell Yeah"? / A game a day: 2016 edition
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:35:47 AM »
I haven't played too many different video games so far this year.

I started the year with Paper Jam Bros. and Super Mario RPG, I finished up Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, I had a Curtain Call relapse, I played Doom and Doom 64 and spent 80 hours on Hyrule Warriors in April alone. The only games I've played in 2016 that are completely new for me have been Paper Jam Bros., Botanicula and Ninja Smasher (which is this year's out-of-nowhere gem that I'm already speedrunning).

After last year's success, I had every intention of getting around to this year's iteration of A game a day earlier. Then I started playing more Kingdom of Loathing, and actually put a lot of time into my fanfic writing (19 chapters published so far).

But now the summer's drawing to a close. Even if I have a bunch of stuff to do the coming two weeks, I'll try to end the gaming summer on a high note by dealing with some of the stuff in my backlog.

Format will be identical to last year, so anything I said about it last year still applies.

So let's roll.

So yesterday I officially launched my current writing project, One Piece: Pure Corruption. I've been describing it as "a One Piece fanfic with ambitions". It started life as an RP on K-F forums. Twice, actually, but none of the attempts really got off the ground. But I liked the characters and the concepts, so I decided to start writing the story on my own - and with some input from one of the participators, and feedback from some other people, now it's here. The prologue and the first volume, consisting of nine chapters, are currently "published".

All of it's on the in the preceding paragraph linked to Pure Corruption website. I'm also submitting the chapters to my deviantArt page, and now actually also Fanfiction.net even if it looks much worse there. The website was always meant to be the chief location for it anyway, since I have far more control over the page structure there. It also has some bonus content.

So, well, if you're into One Piece, I hope you might enjoy my story. Since the story takes place before the events of One Piece proper, and at least as of now only involves characters that have nothing to do with actual One Piece characters, no real foreknowledge is needed, so if you're not into One Piece, it might be possible for you to enjoy it too!

Junk Heap / What is the deal with

Computer screens are bright.

To be more specific - computer screens use so-called blue light. During the day, this doesn't really matter. Screens are made to shine in a manner reminiscent of the sun.

When it's dark around you, you shouldn't be looking at the sun, though.

That's where f.lux comes in. It automagically adjusts the colour temperature of your screen based on the time of day, so that it will instead use warmer, yellow light when the sun is down.

This legitimately makes the screen much more comfortable to look at during the late hours, and is a thing that is beneficial for your sleep if you go to bed right after being at your computer, which is something that I assume many of us do. I've been using it for quite a while, and it really is a help. I can't say for sure that it's made me sleep better, but it probably has and I just don't notice or remember. It definitely makes using the computer after sundown much less of a strain on the eyes, which can only be a good thing.

So just get f.lux.

In particular, I have a lot of unplayed and unfinished games. Now it's summer, so I don't have any university classes for a bit under three more months. You'd figure this would be the absolutely perfect opportunity to actually play those.

So what have I been doing for the past weeks?

Playing Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls on Xbox 360. A game which I have now played from start to finish at least six times, and a bit more since some classes had beaten the base game before RoS came out, one of them even twice. I finally did finish Act V with my Monk yesterday, which was the only character I hadn't finished it with. So that should be me done, right? Right?

Nah. I immediately jumped into Adventure Mode with my Barbarian. And for what? To get better gear. So I could play more and get better gear.

I had a conversation about this with some people on IRC yesterday. And while it was nothing new, it was the first time the specific feeling I had about it was put into words - "D3 is certainly one of those "I could be doing something better BUT" games", as said by one person - and my conclusion was basically that when I get better gear in D3, my numbers become higher, and I want to get higher numbers so I can keep playing and get even higher numbers.

For some reason, putting it into perspective like that made me figure that it was time to let D3 rest. It's time to take on the backlog. Starting today.

My intention, as noted by the topic title, is to attempt to take one game a day from my long backlog. It contains both games I haven't even started, and games I have played but never got around to finishing. And actually play it for a significant amount of time.

It's not deathly serious. The project won't be considered a failure if I miss a day. I already know there will be days where I can't really do it, as I'll be going away on cons, on ESA, home to visit parents (but that's what portable games are for, amirite?). Some games may be stretched out over multiple days. But it'll be a conscious effort to vastly cut down on the backlog, especially when it comes to the games I haven't touched at all. And of course, the end goal is to actually finish a majority of the games included.

I'll do a post about each game that gets included, which will at the end of the day be edited to include a verdict of the game. I don't believe in grading games on a point scale anymore, so I'll do none of that.

Of course, discussing the games is very welcome. And what's even more welcome is for you to join in! It seems to just be one of those truths about gaming today - infinitely long backlogs that get added onto faster than games get cleared out from it. Especially with PC games - I don't even use Steam, and I still very much have a ton of them, mostly thanks to GOG.com and Humble Bundle/Humble Store. I know you have a backlog too. Let's work on it together.

So let's roll.

So you might have heard of a little game called Splatoon for the Wii U. It's basically the nineties distilled into a video game. Nickelodeon aesthetics, cheesy songs like the aforementioned, colours, hip hop clothes, everything!

It's out soon, too! Release date is May 29th.

This is Nintendo getting into a genre they pretty much haven't touched at all before. It's also a new first-party IP from Nintendo, which hasn't happened for a long time. A team-based third-person shooter, in which you play as squids who can also turn into kids (that song is now, again, in your head).

There's a single player mode that has enemies and bosses, which looks pretty cool, but the meat of the game is meant to be the online multiplayer. Which, sadly, is still not an area where Nintendo will win any prizes for convenience. You jump online and get distributed to a game, and teams are randomly selected from the 8 people in the room (it's always 8 people). In the demo, you couldn't see what weapons people had before the match started, and you're stuck with one weapon for the whole match, making strategy and planning out teamwork hard. Oh, and it of course doesn't have voice chat either. Not even with people on your friend list. An update in August is supposed to bring lobbymaking in, at least.

The aim of the game, at least in the Turf War mode, is not to kill - or, as it's called in this game, splat - your opponents, but to cover as much ground as possible with your team's ink colour. To this end, there's a bunch of weapons to choose from, that mainly come in the varieties ink smg, ink sniper rifle (aka "charger) and paint rollers/brushes, and at least the roller that was in the demo would be the shotgun equivalent when fired before starting to paint the ground. There's also grenades and subweapons, and weapon/grenade/subweapon configuration was locked to four pre-set ones in the demo, no idea what it's like in the full game. The Splat the world commercial, at least, shows a player using the subweapon that was only for the roller in the demo with another weapon.

So yeah.

It's a fun game. Online multiplayer is very smooth, the last Global Testfire was the first time I've seen some kind of lag issues but the servers were kinda screwed over that time.

You should get it. If you don't have a Wii U, you should get a Wii U, and then get Splatoon. Or get the new Splatoon Wii U bundle.

Dungins and Durgins / Tournament of the Picks - Season 1 Grand Final
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:37:52 AM »
Before we start, click the image to start downloading the picks. I figure not everyone has all old picks still lying around.

:playitloud:

We've come a long way.

The first Tournament of the Picks started in November, 2009. Yep, we've done this for five years.

In those five years, we've gone through a total of 32 Tournaments of the Picks. The format has gone through some minor changes and streamlining and stuff over the years, but at the core, it remains being a thing about music. We had a joke pick TotP. We had mega-TotP.

And now, we have 32 picks that have been TotP winners. One TotP ended without any winners, but that's fine, because another one had two winners due to shenanigans.

Thus, it's time to wrap the first "season" of TotP up with the grand final, featuring the 32 winning picks from past TotPs.

This tournament is going to be true double elimination, so we're going to have two rounds eventually that are devoted entirely to wrapping up the loser's bracket. In my current game plan, these rounds will be rounds five and seven, and round eight will subsequently be the big final showdown.

For this tournament, all picks are treated as completely divorced from their original submitter when it comes to what can fight what. Given how different people have different amount of wins, it seems fair. When randomly rolling the first round matches, it ended up not happening that any person's two picks went up against each other, but no thought will be put into that later. I don't have a drawn-up bracket - what fights what will be randomly rolled up each round. I will re-roll if a match is rolled that is identical to a match that's happened before, if possible.

So let's get going. I decided to, for this one, include the names of all the artists in the list. 'cause that's no secret anymore.

ROUND ONE

1. Star One - Sandrider vs. Infected Mushroom - Serve My Thirst
2. Pendulum - Watercolour vs. Magic Man - Out of Mind
3. Owen Pallett - Scandal At The Parkade vs. N.EX.T - Dead Silence
4. Michael Kiwanua - Tell Me a Tale vs. The Sparks - This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us
5. Caravan Palace - Jolie Coquine vs. Sixto Sounds - The Savior of Dream Land
6. Jick - Ode to Booze vs. My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the Black Parade
7. Disasterpiece - Counter of the Cumulus vs. Groove Coverage - God is a Girl
8. Silverchair - Point Of View vs. The Aquabats - Cat With 2 Heads!
9. Inspector Gadget - Dr. Claw Theme vs. Prophecy - Chekan Winter
10. Yuki Kajiura - Key Of The Twilight vs. Jimmy "BigGiantCircles" Hinson and Magnus "SoulEye" Pålsson - Yeah!
11. Yousei Teikoku - Deep Sea vs. REDALiCE - Porky of Porky of Porky of Porky
12. 3L - Extend Ash vs. goat - Scourge of 1691
13. Holy Fuck - Royal Gregory vs. Yuki Kajiura - The World
14. VVVVVV - Piercing The Sky vs. Avenged Sevenfold - A Little Piece Of Heaven
15. The King of Fighters XIII - Diabolosis vs. Parov Stelar - Sugar
16. Star One - Digital Rain vs. Ar Tonelico II - BASARA

And all the rest
So the picks in this tournament are 32 out of an astounding sum of about nine hundred (the spreadsheet has 905 rows, but we've had some duplicates) picks that have gone through TotP. Let's not forget them!

Here's something you can do, if you want to. If enough people do it, I'll tally it up at the end of the tourney, so the "deadline" for doing this is when voting for the final round closes.

List your ten favourite picks that have been in TotP - excluding the 32 winners and excluding your own picks!

Remember to consult the TotP History spreadsheet to jolt your mind about it.

And also
Five years, 32 TotPs. Got anything else nice to say about it? Got a TotP that was your favourite? Found any new bands to be a fan of? This is a time to reminisce, so I'm inviting any and all posts about these five years of TotP. Let's talk the musics.

With that said...

Get to voting!

Dungins and Durgins / Tournament of the Picks 32: The Music Zone
« on: July 09, 2014, 05:00:48 PM »
RIGHT THEN LET'S FIGHTING

So, well, people seem to have liked the way things were done in the past, where you picked your favourite X out of the amount in each division, and who am I to change a winning concept like that?

So we have 44 picks in total which you can download here. That's eleven picks each. Vote for six songs in each division, numbers will make sense later. If you want them to make sense now then pretend there were 12 people who signed up and the imaginary person submitted Earl four times so all his picks would lose in the first round anyway.

One song from each participant was distributed to each division and then listed in alphabetical order so it's not like that one other TotP where the same person was in the same spot in each one because that made it too easy to guess who sent what!

There'll probably be some sort of loser's bracket thing too?
