    Favourite games of all time so far: Monkey Island, Psychonauts, Broken Age, Grim Fandango and Final Fantasy IX. Yep, Tim Schafer has written 4 out of my top 5. And that's why I've joined Double Fine forums. Can't wait for Psychonauts 2!
  1. Psychonauts 2 in the media

    Video of Tim receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at GDC 2018.
  2. Chrono Trigger has been released on Steam, as I have long hoped it would. Everyone is complaining about it being a mobile port. I played FF9 on Steam which was a mobile port but I had no problem with it at all, it was definitely preferable to the PS1 version since it came with additional options and better textures. Is this a mobile port in that vein, or is it a truly terrible mobile port that makes it less enjoyable to play? I've been playing the demo of FFXV and I'm so terrible at this gameplay oh my god. On the plus side yesterday I bought meatloaf and Ignis said "That's it! I've come up with a new recipe!" and it made my evening. I may not have played the game, but I know the memes
  3. We gotta celebrate Tim getting a Lifetime Achievement Award at GDC somehow!
  4. New Developer Documentary - Raz's Family

    There's something about Frazie and Dion standing next to each other that reminds me a bit of Elaine and Guybrush and I can't unsee it. Mirtala is also really familiar but I can't put my finger on it.
  5. Mortal Engines is one of my two beach books! They're the only books I take to read on the beach, and I only ever read them while at the beach, to limit the number of books of mine that get filled with sand. As such I've been reading it for two years and only 3/4 of the way through, so I'm not watching the trailer yet, haha. I think it's a pretty fun story so far.
  6. Psychonauts 2 in the media

    Haha, he does look very different without it, but I knew it was him from his beautiful head of hair.
  7. Psychonauts 2 in the media

    Fig Update #5 - First Playable Milestone I love so many things in that video!!!
  8. Spaff talked on twitter how he does the moderation of the Steam forums and the ways in which Valve's moderating tools are lacking, so that's one aspect they should work on.
  9. Any updates? Am I missing something?

    Updates tend to be quarterly.
  10. I don't know much about brand new shows that aren't animated (loved Duck tales too!), I've got enough shows from recent years to watch. Sadly, I enjoy a lot of grimdark stuff, so apart from Doctor Who I can only recommend: The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow are breezy fun, lots of humour and entertaining action. Supergirl is the most light-hearted and The Flash is probably the best one, there's some heartbreak but in a bracing way, they're not grimdark. Orphan Black, which ended its final fifth season yesterday, might be the best show of recent years and is generally positive and has a lot of humour, but it does have some psychologically disturbing stuff, heartbreak and some gore too. EDIT: I can't believe I forgot Sense8! OMG. So good. It takes a few episodes to get going, but it celebrates positive messages about humanity in all its diversity. Has some violent fight scenes.

    Raz has been added to the roster of Bounty Battle. You can see his art at the link at the on-going Fig campaign. In other Fig news, Kingdoms and Castles investors recuperated their investment within weeks of the game release! Good to see the model working.
  12. Psychonauts 2 in the media

    Nice Zak audio interview, gives info on the sharing out of creative responsibility (things are worked out at a high-level, but people take creative ownership of the level they're working on) and how far along the project is (2 months into production, 3 levels being worked on, hiring people to work on a 4th, a year of production still to go).
  13. She's fantastic in Broadchurch, and Chibnall wrote the women on that show really well and with a lot of sensitivity, so I'm also glad it'll be him in charge rather than Moffat. She was also in Black Mirror 1x03.
  14. Jodie Whittaker was fantastic on Broadchurch, and has sci-fi credentials with Attack the Block and Black Mirror, it's such exciting news.
