    David Lynch Teaches Typing https://rhinostew.itch.io/david-lynch-teaches-typing Silly, short interactive comedy thing. Still not as weird as actual David Lynch.

    I mentioned it in the games completed thread: http://www.mfgamers.net/index.php?/topic/41418-post-when-you-complete-a-game-17/&page=10&tab=comments#comment-208331 It's a great game, and I love the soundtrack.

    If you've got Amazon Prime, then you have access to these. You need to link your Amazon and Twitch accounts: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202096320 , and download the Twitch Desktop app. I also got Devil May Cry HD collection this way the other day. I'm not sure if that one is still being offered. Edit: It's available until April 6th
  6. Nintendo Switch

    All these re-releases and ports of old games, they ought to rename the machine 'Other Consoles Classic Mini' Joking aside, if you never owned a Wii U or played indie games on a PC in the last few years, the games library for this machine looks amazing. I haven't bought a console since PS3 around the time of Uncharted 2, but I'm really tempted by Switch.
  7. Into the Breach

    https://steemit.com/gaming/@badastroza/interesting-people-27-chris-avellone-on-into-the-breach Interview with Chris Avellone, who did some writing for Into The Breach. He talks about writing for a non story based game like this, and about his going freelance in general.
  8. Into the Breach

    I've beaten the game on easy, haven't managed on normal yet, but got totally demolished on the final battle a couple of times. I've unlocked 3 or 4 new squads. I really like the Rusting Hulks who use smoke clouds a lot to cancel enemy attacks, but also have a passive ability that electrifies smoke to cause damage each turn. They're a lot of fun. There's another group who revolve around chain lightning attacks, but I haven't really managed to get my head around them yet. It's too easy to do collateral damage to friendly units.
  9. Memorable gaming adverts.

    I answer "plug you into a Sega?" every time Monica asks "can you do me a favour?" Every time. She loves it. I mean, I assume she does, who wouldn't?
  10. Cool Video Game Shit

    https://kotaku.com/halo-reach-players-spent-seven-years-trying-to-get-into-1823356029 I'm not a fan of the Halo games, but always kind of respected the way Bungie put together these spaces where players can do so many weird things.

    http://kck.st/2CLXVPw 90's shooters weren't really my thing, but Hellscreen looks really stylish.
  12. Overwatch

    had a quick play around on the test realm. I do love a character that can knock enemies off the map.
  13. Into the Breach

    I've had this on my wishlist for a little while. I played about 45 minutes tonight and I'm glad to say it's quality so far. The 2D graphics are really nice, and I'm enjoying the music a lot too. Advance Wars is an apt comparison, it's on the very approachable end of turn-based tactics, just like those GBA games were. The combat is very different though. In these early stages, using your attack abilities to move enemies around is pretty key to success. Protecting the buildings is very important, as damage to buildings decreases a power level which persists across the game. Once that goes down to zero it's game over, so a lot of the decision making is about can you prevent the bugs damaging buildings by killing/manoeuvring them. If not, do you allow the hit this time, or let one of your mechs take it. As for the 'time travel': It seems a bit Edge of Tomorrow'. You can re-start a turn once per battle, and there's also the option to restart the timeline (i.e start a new game), choosing one of your pilots who persists with all their experience and abilities, while everything else re-sets. I haven't gotten far into seeing what the upgrade system is all about, but on surface level it has similarities to FTL. Upgrades are earned, found or bought, but need sufficient power in order to activate. There also seem to be different teams of mechs you can unlock, with different weapons and abilities.
  14. Sea of Thieves

    Very nice cover. Took me a second to work out what that skull was all about when I saw it elsewhere earlier today. It probably didn't help that my Nintendo blind spot didn't make the connection between 'legendary UK studio' and Rare.
  15. Metal Gear Survive

    Everything I've seen of it in videos does look bad to me, but the whole meter-managjng survival thing is one of my least favourite game mechanics. I can't wait for it to go out of fashion. MGSV was the first time a Metal Gear game looked particularly appealing to me. I don't think this is all that similar?
