    The Shackled Wolves - 2021 Games Completed Thread

    Quake (NS) Ay, look at me. I beat a game. OK, so it was just the main game, and it was co-op, and @Goodtwin carried my ass. Great time (in co-op...I have a feeling this game would've ganked me to a rage quit solo). Smart edits with little lighting touches, and the visuals have been out of...

    Posting from my new Chromebook. I've probably posted less here than ever because I lacked a reliable computer with a keyboard. Ay, I noticed. Halloween isn't Halloween without some Cheshire action. Had to come here to get it.

    Alright, you know what a simp I am for 8bitdo. But seriously. This is bonkers. "Plus, 8Bitdo's Switch mode includes a wild optional toggle that revolves around the triggers. Unlike Xbox and PlayStation, Nintendo Switch doesn't formally support analog triggers; they're just on-off buttons. But...

    The Shackled Wolves - 2021 Games Completed Thread

    Metroid Fusion (GBA) 2:24, 42% items. This game is like my manhood. The older I get, the shorter it feels. I think this is the quickest I've ever finished Fusion, and I wasn't trying to. Speed runners do this one in under an hour, of course, but I have no desire to try that. Maybe one day...

    This is so true. I didn't realize how much I appreciated this until the Switch. And a happy 4th to you, too, amigo. I hope the storm fizzles out.

    And now we can't edit posts? Wth? Anyways, Alyx was in development for like 4 years. HL3 wasn't; they had an idea and didn't get far. That's the difference with Dread; there were at least two playable builds (maybe three, if you count the 2001 E3 not-Fusion game). It existed in a more solid form...

    Honestly, I'd bet HL3 happens. https://www.pcgamesn.com/half-life-alyx/next-half-life-game It's been a constant "Source / Source 2 just isn't ready"-thing. Well, it's ready. They followed through, released a Half Life game, and seem to have gotten past the intra-studio shocked-Keanu "what if we...

    I thought E3 had lost the capacity for big shockers. And tbh, after this, it might. To have the biggest fangasms, you gotta have pent-up demand, like wanting burly-man Link. We're probably not ever going to have another mascot-level franchise with a 15-20 year mystery game floating around...

    One can never underestimate the internet's infinitely renewable capacity for edgelord shitposting. You get your "knew it was coming, didn't see that angle" Zelda megaton. You get the great white whale of vaporware with Dread. You get SMT V as your epic post-apocalyptic JRPG. Sure, why not...

    Monster Hunter: Rise (NS) A shade under 70 hours. Saw the credits roll in the village; would've seen the credits roll in the hub had they not moved the goal posts with the last update. (Betting that either , or and we fight the version of her.) Utterly fantastic. I know the hipsters will...

    Sooooooo...yeeeeeeeeah. At least on the timing alone, some "insider" credentials should be revoked. I almost miss GAF being able to blacklist people. ...now watch them announce it tomorrow. I think I kinda benefit from only having one console. For me, the Switch is like having a mini Steam...

    What is Retro Studios REALLY up to?

    I'm less worried about an art director than them only hiring a lead producer last summer. Kinda important to, y'know, have someone in charge of the project that they got in (checks Wikipedia) January 2019. How do you get a huge project, but don't put anyone in charge of the overall effort...

    It's alive! I swapped to DuckDuckGo as my phone browser, and it wouldn't let me log in here for some odd reason. Now it works today, and I find that the CT has been a busy place. I go in for vaccine dose 2 today. Can't wait to start putting pandemic life in the rearview. Duuuuuude. I miss...

    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (NS) This game is fascinating. Not because it's good (which it is), but because, with the modest updates Grezzo did, it feels like the sort of game Square Enix has been trying to do right for years now. "SNES, but modern." SE published Bravely Default...

    Pretty much all modern shooters are also designed with DA in mind, too, though. That's why there's so much programming chicanery with sticky aiming/assist; devs have bent over backwards to make shooters playable with sticks since Halo and COD4 showed that the biggest audience for them was on...

    This. Oh, I'm sure it can be played that way with a mouse, but the game was built to make you feel like you walked out of a brawl after an hour-long session. Precise pirrouetting into one-shots isn't really the DOOM ethos. Slam dancing in a punk moshpit, yeah. The only enjoyment I'm getting...

    I'm in that boat. I see comments on "but it's a special anniversary!" No it isn't. 40 is special. No one gives a shit about 35. A trio of HD remasters is enough to mark the "occasion." If Rise has anything close to the success of World, it'll be a pretty heavy hitter. It might be a year late...
