That's Not News!



  • @bam541 I recommend Pathologic 2. It's incredibly interesting and (though many hardcore fans would disagree with me using them) it has a lot of really great difficulty sliders.





  • Merry Christmas, Allies! Hope you all have/had an awesome day - even if Christmas isn’t your thing. Now, to play some Borderlands and prepare breakfast before the kids are up.



  • Merry Christmas to everyone! I love and appreciate you all so much! Hope you all have some you time to hang out and enjoy some games with some loved ones and can have a couple smiles!



  • @e_zed_eh_intern Bah Humbug!



  • Some cool stats to look at



  • Here's a really interesting story from the development of Agent.



  • @bam541 The whole time I was reading that story I was banging my head against a table. Fascinating read, but Jesus Christ, the amount of western arrogance is astonishing. Rami's tweet sums it up very well, I think.



  • @naltmank Yeah, it's kinda insane that they're so confident with barely any info going in. I feel like there are bound to be people that would have known that the Egypt cops are as strict as the article described. The US Embassy peoples' reaction are so spot on, yet hilarious in hindsight.



  • Really cool video from MinnMax, they got museum curators to react to museums in 2020 games

  • So I bought a PS5 at launch and sold it a week or two ago but not before trying a few of the PS Plus Collection games. I went to my ps4 library yesterday and the games were there and I was able to download them. Pretty rare situation but cool nonetheless.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern

    Why did you sell it? And for how much?



  • @scotty why? No games that interest me that I can’t play on PS4, I don’t have a 4k tv, it felt like it wasn’t finished and like a liability that could break down any time. Maybe if it were cheaper I wouldn’t care but my Switch is already a paperweight so I didn’t want to regret something nearly twice the price. I sold it for like $20 more than I paid. I just wanted it gone. It worked out well. It was basically a free rental and I got God of War and the Last of Us Remastered for free.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern

    But if you knew there isn't any games that you can't play on PS4 beforehand why did you buy it in the first place? I'm not interrogating, I'm curious.



  • @scotty well l, to be honest, I just kind of got wrapped up in the hype the day the Seried X came out. I ended up ordering 1 of each assuming I could sell them to a friend for what I paid or throw them on craigslist if not. I found a friend for each but the PS5 one backed out after it arrived. Then I was gonna throw it on Craigslist but it just kept calling out to me to open it. And to be honest, I could have kept it and just waited for games to come out but my biggest concern was actually that it honestly felt that unfinished so I was too afraid of a ylod-type situation. I will 100% jump back in in a year or two though,



  • Someone found this easter egg in TLOU that I never heard about, it's pretty cool

  • @bam541

    That is really cool. My theory is that it's just placeholder and this specific process of reloading the game to see the ant on the TV is just a bug (pun intended).

    I bet they knew they would talk about something on TV like zombies, cordyceps, blah blah, and a game designer just threw it in knowing it'll get replaced with animation when the script is done.

    I kinda feel like it's so weirdly specific and so outside of the world of TLOU that it is an oversight as opposed to an easter egg, right? Never seen an ND easter egg that's just a PNG.

  • Finally got the time to watch Action Button's review of The Last of Us. It's real good. I've been thinking about how Naughty Dog's games make me feel like I'm roleplaying like in RPGs, and Tim's review is probably the first one I seen that delved a bit into that feeling. There's also a bunch of things he mentioned that I really agree with, and this review overall made me appreciate ND's games even more. I'll be watching his other stuff soon... if I get the time to watch another feature length production.
