Re: 2019 Raven Mythic Check-in!

I am here! Game wise I've been flitting from game to game with various single player titles. I'm building up a collection of tabletop RPGs that I'm probably never going to run, despite what I keep promising myself. I've been dabbling in Drake's Werewolf game in the Shoutbox and keep telling myself t...

Re: Fallout: 76

If there is an option for hosting your own server, that might be a saving grace for this as a game. It's still hard to see it as anything other than a disappointing entry into the Fallout series.

Have you ever enjoyed stories like The Great Mouse Detective, An American Tail, or the Redwall series but think to yourself, "You know, what this really needs are motorcycle gangs"?

Re: Castlevania (Netflix)

I absolutely loved it, short as it was. Fortunately it's already been renewed for a second season and they'll be doubling the number of episodes for that one.

If I had any complaints it would be that we didn't see any classic enemies from the games. Or wall chicken.

Re: Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" series

I sincerely enjoyed this series. I'd read the book as well and it's one of my favorites but I have to save I've loved all the parts that deviated from the original story or added to it. The bit with Vulcan may have been a little over the top though. The one thing I wasn't sold on at first was their ...

Re: [AoC] Ashes of Creation (MMORPG Coming 2018)

I was following this on Kickstarter, but it got to sounding like way more than they could conceivably deliver. Particularly with all the stretch goals they chalked up.

If anything ever comes of it though, I'll happily eat those words someday.

Re: Castlevania (Netflix)

Watching this again, I'm getting the feeling this based on Castlevania 3. Which would make the woman casting magic Sypha and the guy throwing knives Grant. So Alucard is bound to be in there somewhere.

Re: Castlevania (Netflix)

Wow... I was actually pretty pessimistic when I heard about this series because of the direction they went in with the Lords of Shadow games. But this looks good. Tying it back to the NES was a nice touch. The castle itself has a look of wrongness, and that's the right vibe. A bunch of impaled skele...

Re: Mass Efffect: Andromeda

I actually gave my brother's copy of this on Xbox a try tonight. I'm finding the face thing jarring. Maybe I'm looking back with rose colored glasses, but I feel like the previous games had better faces.

I reuse character names in other games all the time. Because I am terrible at coming up with character names.

Re: Humble Freedom Bundle

Quick update: Some of the games are no longer available to new buys of the bundle. I guess they had a limited number of keys from the developers and they've exceeded that number. Super Meat Boy is no longer available as a Steam key, but is available for Windows DRM free. Monster Loves You is no long...

Humble Bundle is running a particularly good bundle at the moment. Called the Humble Freedom Bundle, the minimum amount is $30. In exchange you get 40 games, an audiobook by Cory Doctrow, a PDF of an out of print Neil Gaiman collection, a book about how women are targeted online and how to stay safe...

Re: Stardew Valley?

Yup! I started playing around when it launched and managed to pull myself away from it eventually.

Its the sort of game I've been wanting for years, an old school Harvest Moon but better and more. I really hope there is a sequel.

I'm excited for this... but I'm not really feeling any of the energy from Danny as a character that I got from Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones or Luke Cage. I hope this doesn't end up being the first Netflix Marvel flop.

I could recap what the listing says, but if you know anything about the CAH guys, you know it's going to be a funny read.
