All things considered, this probably isn't as obscure as I think it is. I'm sure it came and went with exactly as much attention as it deserved (which is not much). All I really remember about the game was that you could give your alien-man a neat flamethrower-arm.

Oh for crying out loud... It turns out that I was way, WAY over-thinking it.

Anyways, it was a fun little game.

Despite a few points where the complexity jumps quickly (relative to what the game had expected of you up until those points), I haven't had much trouble with Hack 'n' Slash. But now I'm at what I'm almost positive is the very last puzzle, and I don't even know where to start.

Where I am: The rooftop (drmrooftop.lua I think the room is called) after beating the wizard. He's trapped in a book that seems to be corrupted, but also seems to be the last room in the game (having peeked at the lua file with a text editor). I have PrincessRoomCopy and I think I can manage to get PrincessRoom (though I'm not 100% sure how I did it). I have no clue what the key code is and the game "crashes" when I use the door on the right side of the screen.

My initial thought was to look for a readme file or game manual, thinking that the name "drmrooftop" was a hint alluding to old PC copy protection codes. And if it turns out that IS the solution, I'll feel really dumb, because I looked and didn't notice anything.

If possible, I would prefer a slight hint or nudge in the right direction as opposed to the answer directly.

This is almost as good as (maybe even better than, depending on what games haven't been announced yet) Humble Bundle 5, which was (if you paid above the average of like 6 bucks):

  • Bastion
  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent
  • Limbo
  • Psychonaauts
  • Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP
  • Braid
  • Super Meat Boy
  • Lone Survivor

I didn't watch Raw, but I saw Sandow yelling at people for retweeting some "private picture" or something. What was that all about?

Dolph 'leaked' some pictures of Miz.

Oh. Oh goodness. Wow.

I ended up getting kimchi dolsot bibimbap. It was sinus-clearlingly spicy (as expected) and I burned the shit out of my tongue because I didn't realize that bibimbap counterintuitively gets hotter over time, but it was reeeaaal tasty.

I'll definitely have to try some of the other suggestions next time. Thanks again, everyone!

Thank you Ian Gillan from Deep Purple, Uematsu, and lyrics written by Hironobu "THE GOOCH" Sakaguchi for this fuckin hilarious song.

THAT'S what that song's from? I always just assumed it was some Fire & Flames style nerd metal. On the other hand, I've only heard the song on VGCW, so it makes sense that it's a video game song.

The Namco X Capcom opening theme is pretty great.

Awesome, thanks for all the suggestions! I just looked up some of these dishes online and they all look super good. I'm really pumped for dinner now :D

Bibimbap, bulgogi and Kimchi! All very delicious, at least at the Korean place here.

I hope bibimbap is as delicious as it is fun to say.
