  1. Host Master: Master Host. Programmed entirely in assembly code.
  2. Oh yeah! As a mega slacker backer who never got access to the hidden forums or the fancy badges, I'm excited to go back through time!
  3. Many recent Double Fine games have introduced new tech into either the Moai or Buddha engines. Any new tech planned?
  4. Just pointing out that I created the *first* forum thread about Headlander, and totally called a past Amnesia Fortnight project. Missed it a bit by assuming it was a Pendleton Ward project, though.
  5. I'm glad estimates have it as a shorter game. It took be 32 hours of gameplay to finish Grim Fandango: Remastered, over the course of a full 100 days. And that was the only game I was playing. I still haven't finished Massive Chalice, bought on June 1st, or Brutal Legend, bought in March of 2014. Yikes.
  6. I just wanted to pop back into the thread, and let you all know I'm following along with excitement!
  7. I finally got them all downloaded! Check your sums before you wreck your sums!
  8. I'm excited to start my second playthrough, after having similar results to your first playthrough.
  9. Troubles in battles, for sure. There were a few battles near the end that literally eliminated all of my characters, and I had to search for brand new ones.
  10. Yeah, bad luck with corruption, and losing so many battles!
  11. Aw man, I was so close! I lost all but a single keep before the final battle, and then all my bloodlines die off one by one. So, big question, do I start over from Year zero? I don't know if I really "learned" anything, so I'd probably make the same bad choices. Any thoughts on what to research early/mid/late?
  12. I was pressured by friends to purchase Minecraft, long after it was out of alpha releases, so it was the full $26.95. My friend even set up an Amazon EC2 server for us to play on. I dunno. It's just boring and incomprehensible to me. What combines to make what? There's a wiki you have to read? Oh yeah, someone blew up my house while I was gone...no wait, that was a bad guy that my friend was trying to escape from. Ah, we just need to install server mods to make it fun. Um...how do I do that? The Minecraft documentation should tell us, right? Um. Yeah, nearly the most I've paid for a game in 7 years, and I haven't touched it since.
  13. I've got to say, on the subject of Father's Day, I'm LOVING Massive Chalice, especially for this reason: While I'm on baby care duty, I can play a turn, change a diaper, play a turn, fix a bottle, play a turn, all without forgetting to pause, because it's totally turn-based. I love that.
  14. ENGAGE WILD SPECULATION. Spoils of the Amnesia Fortnight partnership with Pendleton Ward, or something else? I know Adult Swim Games has published a lot of good games for mobile, but I hadn't realized they're the publisher of record for Jazzpunk, Völgarr the Viking, and a bunch more.
  15. Baby pics are a fine social currency! Our little one came in the first week of April, so I know what's up too!
  16. Is it GEMA? If so, it's a known issue.
  17. My guess is that the game was close to release when Galaxy achievements went live, and adding anither testing cycle was untenable. The APIs are different, so adding it in would open up the possibility of bug regressions.
  18. I'm about 80 years into my first timeline, and I'm losing every single character with The Cadence... Is it worth it to stick it out until I lose all my territory (or, bizarrely, win), or should I restart the playthrough now? I'll admit I'm not very good at strategy games, so my progress, or lack thereof in this case, is expected.
  19. I find local theater is the best place to find maladjusted people like myself.
  20. I just finished Broken Age, and it's 3:30AM local time! Mostly due to Broken Age! Okay, partly because we have a new baby, about the same age as Brad and Cate's. So our days and nights kind of mesh together. I replayed Act 1 as suggested by multiple DFers, and was glad I did. I picked up on lots of clues that I had forgotten. Without further ado, I present my notes: I ran out of space, and opted to write over my boots logic. I also can't draw hexagons for crap. I didn't quite understand why Vella got a hook, or needed one for quite some time. Maybe I missed some explanatory dialog? A friend of mine is playing Broken Age through with her 8 year old, and letting him do the controls. I was just a little further in the game than they were this weekend, so hints were asked for and received. My wife looked at us funny when we kept talking about the right size of Cloud Shoes. Meh!
