Wish I'd tried Prey sooner. Amazing game. I'd passed because I didn't like the monster design. But you have to experience them in-game & *hear* them as the sound design is part of why they're so freaky. Gameplay/story up there w/ Deus Ex/H-L/Bioshock imo


 
 
 

New advert for Rainway, that game streaming app. If they can get it on Switch it would be fantastic.



 
 
 

I've had these weird erratic sensitivity issues since I got my new mouse. Couldn't figure it out, then I realized - it's reading my mousepad's worn spot differently, so as I move across the pad it tracks at different speeds. I am a dumb.


 
 
 

Look like indie platformers/shmup hybrid A.N.N.E. is probably launching in 2018. Going to be an insane year for indie platformers, that's for sure, starting with Iconoclasts in a few weeks.



 
 
 

Decided to try Shadow of Mordor. Quit a couple minutes into the intro. I just couldn't do it. I'm so sick of badly shaven white dudes whose family or girlfriend get killed in the first 5 minutes of a game. It's such a lazy, cliche game story trope.

 
 
 

I'm way down in Athens at my parents, but the weather is saying F this spot in particular & dumping 16"+ of snow on my house in Cleveland. Guess I'll stay here & spend 2 days playing Hollow Knight till it passes because what a mess to drive 4 hours to lol


 
 
 

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate holiday Rotty? <3


 
 
 

Decided to try PUBG. It's okay. Feels like DayZ when I played the mod years ago. I don't enjoy the combat or low health, if someone sees you first you probably have no chance to fight back. If you do play on PC, though, go ultrawide. Look at that wide FOV


 
 
 

Working on my geeky computer corner in the living room. Finally starting to feel cozy!


 
 
 

Heh heh heh heh


 
 
 

Holy crap, I knew the game was beautiful but I wasn't expecting all the cool cut scene animation. This just topped my 2018 Most Anticipated list.



 
 
 

Where did this Ylands game come from? Never heard of it then suddenly it's #1 on Steam. Did I just miss the coverage? It's a good looking building/survival game. But how did anyone even know it existed?! http://store.steampowered.com/app/298610/Ylands/


 
 
 

Been getting into Overwatch Deathmatch a little. Obviously it's unbalanced as hell, but it's good practice. Problem is, it's a 5-6 player sized map with 8 people on it. A little too messy imo. Anyway, I think a 1:1 K:D ratio with Mercy is pretty good :)


 
 
 

My new rule: only buy a game if I plan to IMMEDIATELY start playing it. Because it will only get cheaper in the next sale. Need to play Divinity OS 2 & Hollow Knight, though. All these games & I leave the GOTY contenders unplayed in my library. I R DUMB.


 
 
 

Picked up Titanfall 2 just to try since it was only $10 on Origin. Now I can't stop playing it. They really blew it releasing that half-assed first game, the bad impression definitely killed my interest in 2. Also, I am sold on ultrawide, 4K is passé.


 
 
 

Going to watch a friend on Twitch feels like going to see a friend at work who is a stripper.

 
 
 

Why am I loathe to buy anything on the Microsoft Store in Windows 10? Because in a few years all my games might disappear when MS loses interest and shuts it down like GFWL Marketplace. Just spent an hour & a half with MS tech support & no help.


 
 
 

I only posted this on Facebook before, but maybe you guys will appreciate what I found in my cup last week.


 
 
 

I decided that I wasn't going to buy any more AAA games with gambling in them, period. Then I realized I haven't bought a single new AAA release all year anyway. I think maybe I'm just burnt on those formulas. Meanwhile, I have 60 hours in Dead Cells...

 
 
 

I don't really like most geek collectables (Pop Vinyls etc) but I had to have this little Mario. I have a lot more space now and I'm not sure how to decorate. I want... geeky but sophisticated.


 
 
 

Anyone played Super Lucky's Tale yet? Almost forgot about it because it's only on Windows Store. I enjoyed the crap out of A Hat In Time, how does it compare to that, Yooka, and Mario Odyssey?


 
 
 

My copy of SNES Doom is missing :( It's ruining my day because I was gonna show up all you people on Switch who think you're so hot with portable Rip and Tear.


 
 
 

Just started Elite: Dangerous. I can already start to see why Joel likes it. I'm just doing tutorials so far, but even just landing a ship feels... satisfying? Tried letterboxing down to ultrawide and I think this is how I'm going to play.


 
 
 

Nothing like getting gaming stuff for Xmas. Star Voyager, Atari Racing Pack w/ Indy 500 & racing controllers, & Air/Sea Battle! 1983, 8 year old Jinx.


 
 
 

My estimate of the Xbox One X as "RX 480 w/ slow CPU" is looking right. A GTX 970 stomps it in Gears4 performance mode, I think the CPU is the bottleneck there. The console is built for 4K/30, not 1080/60, so don't expect that option in everything.


 
 


About Jinx 01one of us since 4:26 PM on 11.18.2011

I love gaming, and I have followed the industry and its technology since I was a kid in the 80's. I have gamed primarily on PC since 2000, though I still follow console news and hardware as well.

I worked as a mapper and beta tester for the mod Action Half-Life. I also make custom images for Steam's grid view, those are over on my website.
