  • That's quick, should we wait a couple weeks into January?

  • Hitman 3 comes out pretty soon. Don’t think we can wait.

    I’m off work until the 4th so I can do any time that’s most convenient for people, but if we can avoid starting between 4-10 PM PST I would appreciate it!

    Also, I would love more people and less games. It means we have even less sure things, although we might struggle with drafting!

  • I'm totally down to have my heart broken by bad decisions again! Sorry I'm not as active on Discord right now. I keep the Desktop app closed while I work, and since I've been working from home most of the year, I kinda walk away from my PC when I'm off work.

  • What would be the time on Saturday? I'm still a little unsure about participating this time around.

  • I’m still down to do Saturday but after 9:15PM PST would be 12:15AM EST and that’ll be way too late. Took us 3 hours last year.

  • I'm up for joining this year

  • Just an update:

    Draft is Saturday, Jan 2nd at 8pm PST (make sure to calculate the time difference for where you live)

    @Sazime @Inustar @HappyGaming still need to make new publisher names for 2021. Don't get cut this year! If you're not update in the next like 20 hours, you might not get to play this year.

  • @tokyoslim Thanks for the reminder! Creating my team now.

  • Heh, 8th place 2 years in a row. I'm on a roll!

  • Ugh, I got sick over the weekend, but was sure I still had a reminder set so I could get in Discord and participate directly, even if in an uncomfortable fashion. In my haze, I set my reminder for 2 weeks out.

    That's for letting my poor team auto-fill, fellas. Sorry I wasn't there.


  • @sazime Minus my counterpick of course, I still think all of these could work out better than expected. A lot of games feel like more of a gamble than usual this year. Still wish you and everyone the best luck and hope you're feeling better, friend!

  • @happygaming My self inflicted food poisoning has reverted, yes. :) I kinda want to get 8th place again, just because the odds of that happening are so low.

  • I couldn't find a thread for The Medium so I figured I'd post this gameplay demo here. Until now, I haven't seen footage of this before; just the reveal trailer. I think I will like this game and I'm super open to more of these survival horror games popping up.

    It definitely copies a lot of Silent Hill's homework, which I figured would happen, but it's also just outright taking the cheesy acting too which I can live without by today's standards. Also a healthy dose of Until Dawn's talking to yourself as you discover items and such.

    Anyways, I'm into it, but it does look a bit rough. Kinda like a lower budget Until Dawn. Still difficult to tell how this will review because the cool stuff we see in this demo could be repeated 14 times over for all we know. I went from intrigued to excited after this demo.

  • Has this been talked about anywhere yet? Discord? A new round for '22?

  • @sentinel-beach

    Yeah we’re doing a new season and drafting on Jan 10th. I think there are some pinned messages on Discord.

  • On a Monday? Damn, I might have to sit this year out, because I'll be at work then, and these drafts have tended to happen around 4 AM here in Finland. Might be Tuesday morning for me. :[

  • Draft Day is 1/10/2022 at 5pm PST. If you can't make it, I'm fine with drafting from a list for you or auto drafting using the hype score. If you want me to draft for you, PM me a list of the games you want in order and I'll do my best. If you run out of listed games, I will draft based on hype meter.

    Also: none of the proposed rule changes have a majority vote yet, so if you haven't voted, you might want to take a look at that Google doc in the pinned posts on the discord.
