Dumb Game Monday Discussion



  • So Gemini: Heroes Reborn is quite the gem.

    It's like a mix of Half-Life 2, Star Wars, and whatever time swapping powers (until Dishonored 2 comes out).

    @MiserablePerson I can't believe I forgot to score it!

    Pok├ęPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure: 8.1



  • So now that Mr Kyle @Bosman has an xbox, fully playable would a certain xbox game "Star Wars: Obi Wan" be considered for a possible future stream? Something that would make me proud to enjoy this all time classic of an xbox exclusive



  • Do the comments disappear after posting them in the latest Patreon post by Kyle? I just voted like I was asked to, and my post vanished after hitting Enter. And there are literally no comments there now, at least visible. 65 likes I see.



  • @Sentinel-Beach Patreon kinda borked sometime after the No Man's Sky review went up.



  • Dumb Game Monday came back! It's been a while. We chose Pryzm, and we chose... poorly. Man, that was horrible. Still, the reactions we got from Kyle by the end were some truly great DGM stuff, he got me laughing so hard with him. Only I wasn't about to go insane. :D "So many levels... I'm losing my mind!" Great stream in that regard, but hopefully we'll pick a nicer surprise next time. :)



  • Mixed feelings about Dumb Game Monday, it turns out some gems but I've never been one to watch someone play a game they didn't enjoy.

    I had fun marathoning the Banjo Kazooie and Pokemon TCG2 playthroughs with the wife for a week each, was quite the adventure having experienced both games already myself. So it seems strange to go back to Dumb Game Monday after having a clear example of how fun streams can be when everyone is enjoying it on both sides of the screen.

    Maybe I'm the only one? lol. I'm sure people like to watch Kyle cringe.



  • @ZyloWolfBane You're certainly not the only one. I've tried to watch a few Dumb Game Mondays, but perhaps the ones I looked into were real stinkers of games.

    On the flipside, I've really loved the Tekken 3, SSX, and Pokemon TCG 2 streams to death because it's just good vibes all around. Granted, DGM is offering something different since the 9 generally stream games they love but I don't know... I'd rather not have Kyle suffer at our expense. That can happen during the next fantasy football season, not during a stream.

    Hah, I loved that last part.

    It's just different...if someone is struggling at a game that isn't designed like crap and is widely enjoyed by most people, it's one thing.

    But to play a game that is literally bottom of the barrel garbage intentionally? Games NOBODY could possibly enjoy? It's hard to sit through, I compare it to like...watching someone who sucks at souls try to "Git gud" over someone playing Superman 64 just because it's bloody awful.



  • But Kyle has his limits, as we just saw. He doesn't spend weeks playing some garbage, if the game really is that, like we just saw with Pryzm. He spent hour and a half with it and said "I'm done, never again". There are many games he didn't spend too much time on, like the dinosaur fighting game, or that Beowulf game he never finished.

    The idea of the DGMs is to find the gems that are hidden there, like the Pantheon of the few selected shows. Those are games he enjoyed and so did the audience (more or less). It's great to finally find something fun and interesting among the titles you never knew would possess something like that. Those are really nice moments in these streams.



  • @Sentinel-Beach I could see that appeal. Maybe just a simple tag of the archive/YT video stating a game actually is a hidden gem could alleviate that issue and allow others to get into the idea.



  • So I broke down and decided to start watching the Pryzm playthrough. I'm having a good time actually! I loved reading the 7 IGN gave this game...

    "Deserving at least of a couple of playthroughs before shrugging it off as yet another budget disaster..."

    A couple?!



  • So that happened! A pretty rough first date with Stolen. Jeez. I mean yeah, the game was pretty punishing and weird at points, like that whole huge "get in the room" scenario which took over an hour or something. But before all that the chat was right: Kyle did make it too hard for himself. Way too many misread situations and wrong approaches to them. Luckily the AI wasn't that good as he could just basically run in circles around everyone. But a weird first stream. It took him so long to get into the same level with the game, and then when he was finally forced into that, that huge pause with the room came right away to shatter it all. Maybe we'll get the groove going next week.

    Anyway, hooray for Tails of the Sun! :)



  • Was Gemini: Heroes Reborn not voted in the Pantheon?? :O I don't remember.



  • Stolen was a bad game for DGM, in the end. It wasn't very streamable either. Luckily it wasn't longer than this, and the use of those cheat codes was a wise choice after a certain point.

    But it'll be Fun Game Monday next, was that right? I feel like we need some colour after this. Joy, too.



  • Pokepark 2 needs its time to shine.



  • It's really great watching Kyle play a game he loves and one I remember really enjoying as a kid. My memory on a lot of the details are hazy so this should serve as a nice refresher. Now if only Mega Man Legends 3 didn't get cancelled, the world would be a better place.



  • We could have had Omerta...

    This first person flying in Starwinder with those graphics just makes me nauseous, I can't watch it. I don't even remember when this has happened to me before, but boy, what a rough choice you made in that regard. :/ Luckily it doesn't seem to be too long of a game.



  • The beginning of this week's Dumb Game Monday having Kyle sing part of "Frontier Psychiatrist" by The Avalanches is everything my day needed.



  • Beastly is a great dumb game, it seems. Entertaining for Kyle and so for us too. On the downside the game almost killed Kyle. Like literally. What a moment.
