Not sure if anyone knows about this - one of my friends sent it to me.

Either way, my weekend is now wasted...

(also not sure if this should go in General Discussion or not...)

This is easily one of the top 10 clicking games this year.

#7 Edited by Amikron (295 posts) -

@bemusedchunk: I certainly can't name 10 better clicking games that came out this year.

#8 Posted by bemusedchunk (692 posts) -

@amikron: all the upcoming clicking games don't look nearly as good as this.

#9 Posted by Amikron (295 posts) -

@bemusedchunk: Game developers need to step it up to get near the level of polish this indie darling has.

#12 Posted by Amikron (295 posts) -

@sexytoad: You can export your save to the new one though, it is just a series of characters you paste in.

That's the sort of dumb I like to see.

Anyone send a link to the Giant Bomb guys? I'm sure at least Jeff would get a kick out of this.

If anyone has twitter, please mention it to him there!

#20 Posted by subliminal_kid (60 posts) -

The point when clicking is pointless is great.

#21 Edited by bemusedchunk (692 posts) -

@subliminal_kid: yeah - but i still click now and then to give it that oomph.

#23 Posted by subliminal_kid (60 posts) -

@bemusedchunk: Indeed, used mouse + trackpad to get the last couple thousand cookies for child labor.

May as well share my favorite recipe for Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Joanne Chang's Flour cookbook:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks/228 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (165 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (140 grams) unbleached flour
  • 1 cup (150 grams) bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 9 ounces (255 grams) semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 1/2 ounces (70 grams) milk chocolate, chopped

Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a handheld mixer or a wooden spoon), cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on medium speed for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture is light and fluffy. (This step will take 10 minutes if using a handheld mixer or a spoon). Stop the mixer a few times and use a rubber spatula to scape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and the paddle to release any clinging butter or sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Scrape the bowl and the paddle again to make sure the eggs are thoroughly incorporated.

In a medium bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, bread flour, baking soda, and salt until well mixed. Add the semisweet and milk chocolate and toss to combine. On low speed (or with a wooden spoon), slowly add the flour-chocolate mixture to the butter-sugar mixture and then mix just until the flour mixture is totally incorporated and the dough is evenly mixed.

For the best results, scrape the dough into an airtight container and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 3 to 4 hours) before baking. When you are ready to bake, position a rack in the center of the oven, and heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Drop the dough in 1/4-cup balls onto a baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Flattening each ball slightly with the palm of your hand.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown on the edges and slightly soft in the center. Don't let them get too brown through and through. Part of their appeal is the chewiness of the slightly underbaked centers. Let cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 to 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely.

The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. The unbaked dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

@subliminal_kid: Flour cookbook?! Oh man, I wanted to get that for some time. I work in the waterfront district and I absolutely love going to Flour for any baked goodies.

Will share this with the girlfriend - thanks!

#30 Posted by subliminal_kid (60 posts) -

@bemusedchunk: It is $35 retail which is damn pricey but it is easily the best baking cookbook I've come across. She goes into so much detail that it is hard to mess up. The pumpkin pie recipe resulted in probably the best thing I've ever made.

@bemusedchunk: Not surprising, I bought it from a little store across the street. Sure does have the macaroons recipe, haven't made it but everything I've made has turned out great.

Now I want some pie. And cookies. And eclairs.

Edit: Guess I should be more specific, it has three different macaroons recipes. Not sure if they have more, never actually been there.

#33 Edited by Amikron (295 posts) -

Great now I want macaroons.

#34 Posted by bemusedchunk (692 posts) -

Cookie Clicker 2: Now With Macaroons!

#35 Posted by Amikron (295 posts) -

Macaroon DLC coming soon.

#36 Posted by subliminal_kid (60 posts) -

I'd take blueberry pie DLC any day.

#40 Posted by TobbRobb (4653 posts) -

This is awesome. I 100% approve of this.

#41 Posted by bemusedchunk (692 posts) -

I feel like I've done all I can in this...

...and yet, I continue to buy more portals...

#42 Posted by TobbRobb (4653 posts) -

@bemusedchunk: I know exactly what you mean.

Also goddammit. I only have 40/41 upgrades and I can't figure out where to find the last one. Any clue?

#44 Posted by Kinapuff (244 posts) -

@tobbrobb: Someone mentioned you need 160 Pointers to unlock the last one, although I've yet to confirm whether this is accurate or not. I've got 10 to go.

#45 Posted by TobbRobb (4653 posts) -

@kinapuff: Well that's gonna break my obssessively even bulding ratio. Oh well. I should have enough to do that in one go by now. XD
