Official Lone Wolf game! · 6:54pm Yesterday

OK, I expect one, maybe~ two of you to get what this is about, while most of you just blink owlishly, but I just have to fan-boy sqee for a bit.

(Too Long: Literally didn't read version: The one of a few series of Choose Your Own Adventure Books worth playing even nowadays. Highly, highly recommended if you've got a weekend or two to kill—and graciously offered free online nowadays, with illustrations and everything.)

Happy new year! · 8:10pm Dec 31st, 2017

...

Well, at least 2017 was better then 2016. I'll give it that much. :unsuresweetie:

Still, here's hoping to a better 2018! :pinkiehappy:

Have a safe and happy night, everybody.

The Last Unicorn — Supplemental Mk2 · 4:15pm Dec 28th, 2017

This dropped into my YouTube feed a few days before Christmas, but right then it didn't seem the time.

So... Yeah. Show I've gushed about before, comparing the movie I've gushed about, with the book that...

Seasons Greetings! · 9:07am Dec 24th, 2017

No matter how ya'all celebrate it, I hope you have a safe and happy winter solstice. :twilightsmile:

...Oddly, I think I've heard all of one Christmas song this year. Not counting the few I've sought out myself on YouTube.

Guess the push-back against the people that start playing stuff like that before freaking Halloween finally hit it's mark, and things swung a bit too hard in the other direction instead, or something?

My Thoughts — Skulduggery Pleasant #2 — 'Playing With Fire' · 8:44pm Dec 21st, 2017

I don't have that much to say about Skulduggery this time. Don't get me wrong, it's still good. But it's...

Well, honestly, I was really tempted to just copy my thoughts on #1, and I'm not sure if anybody would have actually noticed. Great action, great snark, creepy villains, too much lame-tastic Valkyrie Cain, not nearly enough awesome title-character skeleton-man.

Dark Horse Status · 5:35pm Dec 17th, 2017

Pro: Writing is going well, if slow. :raritywink:

Con: Chapter will probably not be completely done and proof-read until January, something. :fluttershbad:

11490 words, 32 pages, ~85-90% done.

Why so few updates this year? AKA, state of the author · 4:49pm Dec 17th, 2017

Tried writing this nearly a dozen times, so brass-tacks version behind the cut.

Don't want be bummed out by RL stuff? Then I wish you all happy holidays. :twilightsmile:

Grim Fandago Remastered free on GOG · 6:39pm Dec 12th, 2017

I bought this—a game from 1998 with little more then a spiffy new coat of paint and an engine that won't scream if it's run on anything faster then a TNT2 card—as a freaking full-price preorder, and it was worth every...

Say, what is the Euro's version of pennies called, actually? No matter.

Still, if you haven't already, get this game. It's one of the finest stories ever told in the entire medium of gaming.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, free on Humble store · 7:38pm Dec 1st, 2017

AKA, the XCOM spin-off with the fifties, black goo blob monsters, and tons of cigarette smoking.

Oh, and some aliens and shooting, too.

Jokes aside, I've got a soft spot for this game. It's no great all-time classic, but not borked trash-tier stuff either. Decent shooting, decent characters, decent twists, decent enemies, decent guns, decent powers...

Brütal Legend, free · 6:00pm Nov 21st, 2017

For the next 24 hours ish as of writing this, over on Humble Bundle.

Link.

Personally one of those that loved the idea of a 'Heavy Metal Zelda with an awesome car,' only to burn out on the not exactly riveting 'third-person Battlezone 98 light' segments.

Still, say what else you want about it, but there's no other game quite like it, and free's free.

Oh, and worth it for the face-meltingly awesome voice-cast. That too.
