While he's not a dedicated Hearthstone streamer, and he's the best, most experienced player in the world, Day[9] is always pretty entertaining with his weekly-ish "Decktaculars"

This was my A+ eSports pro-strat for beating Gwyn in DS1 (but I eventually reinstalled and beat him for real).

I'm sure I've yelled at a game (I know I've yelled at my computer at work quite a few times) but my most frequent response to games that anger me is quitting that game, forever.

This guy knows what's up. Being challenged can be fun, but getting all-out upset is not enjoyable. And since joy is (usually) the reason we play in the first place, a game that just makes you mad is probably not worth your time.

Have to find an interior area with lots of items to lick, kick and headbutt to drive up your multiplier. I really was no where near the total until I found the Coffee Stain Studio house and went wild on the various floors (usually lick, kick and headbutting everything, making sure to do all three to each item, then doing the same while jumping). There is another house with multiple bedrooms (believe it is the house with the treadmill) that you can also do a lot of damage in.

Ahh, I hadn't been using lick or kick all that much. It seems obvious in hindsight, but I would imagine mixing the tricks up a bit probably keeps the combo going longer than just headbutting over and over, huh? That should be useful, thanks.

So far I've completed every quest except for the "find all the statues" and the last 2 score quests. The problem is that for whatever reason, I can only stand playing for a little over an hour before getting really motion sick, and the score tally resets each time you start a new session. I've only ever gotten about 2/3 to the normal score goal, so the hard seems unfathomable.

Any pro-goat-tips?

Because what else would your college roommate use as his phone's alarm? Oh the number of times I was awoken by

"The time is 1630. Autopsy subject: A. Watson. Now we're going to make the first incision in- *banging and rattling noises* hold him down, nurse! NURSE! HOLD HIM DOW-AAARRRrrrgh"

I don't know if this joke has been made yet (hell, I might have made it myself and just forgotten), but...

@mento: Regarding what you want to play next:

  • Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes is quite good. It has some fairly enjoyable puzzles, some interesting mechanics, and a weirdly dark slant. I should also note that it seems to be the sequel to Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, but you don't necessarily need to play them in order.
  • Something about The Next Big Thing really rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know if it was the writing or the setting or what, but something left a bad taste in my mouth after playing an hour or two.
  • I can't say enough good things about The Book of Unwritten Tales. I don't want to oversell the game, but I personally think it's one of my all time favorite adventure games.

The last one of note that I can think of was when I made the foolish decision to disregard Alex's 3-star review of The Cave without actually reading WHY he docked those 2 stars. It turns out he specifically listed almost every problem I had with that game (and there were several).

I'm sorry I doubted you, Navarro.

Whatever you do, stay away from MD Geist. He's the Most Dangerous.

God, that movie sucked.
