Y'know, it's actually kinda funny that the Joel McHale "Oh boy!" head-slap moment is what immediately preceded the SonicFox thing. Some of us thought the worst, but then...
Shit I guess I missed the free Hades price error on the Epic Store because I couldn't reset my password properly
Look, I love Supergiant, like I fucking love Pyre, but it's no Journey. Journey is there. Who cares about Hades.

Actually given what Supergiant does it's really weird they have another game sorta ready to play like a year and a bit after their last one.

The only Supergiant game I have played is Bastion and I thought it was all right... But hey... Free is Free lol

What's so great about that screenshot? 3 dialogue choices isn't exactly a return to form. IDK the humor in that trailer rubbed me the wrong way. Not as excited as I expected to be for that game. I typically love everything obsidian puts out so we'll see.

Oh, it was free? Well, go for it, dude.

Also, I don't love Transistor, but Supergiant games are the epitome of appropriate scaling and production scope. Them shits are tight. They're all around 10 hours long and mostly paced impeccably.

If they were on disc I'd ship them to you just to make you obligated to play them. You really should, dude.

It was free when it first went up but I couldn'T login... I went to play VR for a while and when I came back and finally managed to fix my account they had fixed the price.

It's not just three choices.
It's one that needs a certain stat to use.
It's another that's sort of passive and kinda just keeps the conversation going.
It's yet another that involves active aggression and ends the conversation.
They're all doing different things there mechanically and systemically. That is definitely tighter than BGS' last couple games.
Bastion bored me to tears and I haven't really played their games since that.
Look, you like RDR2. You're into lengthy sequences of dialogue and then sort of inscrutable mechanics in brief gameplay sequences.

You'd be way into Pyre.

So I posted the MK 11 trailer on my Facebook feed now that I can finally talk about the game and my brother (who likes fighting stuff but doesn't actually play games) went on a long rant about how the trailer is not realistic and how those characters should have died within seconds considering the violence of the different attacks.... sigh...

i look forward to hearing their theories about why scorpion could not feasibly have a burning skull for a head and constantly come back from hell

Silly that the next OT is up for a poll. We need to make up for our fuck up by not dedicating the last one to Alex’s rock band. I’m still salty this ended up being the title for OT10, it’s an OT6 title at best

I was at first being facetious, but there is sort of a shared through line. The way the crew interacts around a singular point is very much like the camps in red dead, except instead of missions where you go and shoot things every freaking time, you instead go play fantasy basketball. It's just presented in a much smaller budget way, and with less direct character dialogue, and more of a literary flair.
