Quadrilateral Cowboy, developed by Blendo Games, seems like it would have a huge barrier to entry considering that it uses legitimate computer programming to solve its puzzles. This is far from true. My biggest concern for the game was quickly alleviated as the game has a wonderful help system in place.
Let it be known that regardless of your computer programming experience, Quadrilateral Cowboy will welcome you with open arms. Also know that this is a bizarre game. Pressing F1 activates noclip mode, allowing the user to go straight through walls whenever they want. I asked if that was just for this PAX build, but it is actually part of the game. Because why not?
I haven't touched programming since high school, so I was a bit nervous heading into Quadrilateral Cowboy, especially with creator Brendon Chung standing next to me. I was then really happy to learn that typing "help" will bring up some common commands, and typing any object will bring up all of the functions associated with it. Any time I felt lost, I wasn't far away from getting help.
The very first obstacle is to open a locked door. The solution wasn't to find a keycard or to pick the lock, but instead to open up my in-game laptop and type door3.open(10) which opened the door in front of me, labeled door3, for 10 seconds. As simple as it was, hot damn did I feel accomplished afterwards.
It wasn't long before alarms were thrown into the equation, triggering if a door was open for more than three seconds. Not long after that I was disabling a camera, having the program wait two seconds, and then disabling a second camera as I scooted by. Opening a door? Child's play.
Oh, and the tutorial level took me just as long to play as Thirty Flights of Loving in its entirety. This may have the Blendo Games aesthetic, but it is a drastic departure from Gravity Bone or Thirty Flights. With unlimited potential, Quadrilateral Cowboy definitely has a bright future. It should come out this year, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
Shinta MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.RadicalYoseph The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.Torchman *looks at Amazon preorder* This one's for you Chib'CJ Andriessen Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!OverlordZetta In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.gajknight I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.OverlordZetta [img]https://i.imgur.com/GGuxv05.png[/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it. StriderHoang My heart will always be yours, Papyrus #2spoopy4meGoofierBrute I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.Pixie The Fairy It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish.

I'm not crying. Not one bit.ChrisHannard Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary? TheAngriestCarp I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.ChillyBilly Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.SpielerDad Anyone here going to NYC Comic Con?

We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.
