So, uh, again, I'm back with this, but it's weird how nobody (except @dain22) seem to be adressing that developpers are getting accused of being white-supremacists.

Link here.

Seriously I don't know enough about the groups cited to have an opinion myself on the subject but I guess I'll keep digging (or should I? I won't buy the game anyway).

This is the part where I go from "maybe I'll look at this" to "I want to peel this project from my brain forever."

I fucking love these so much.

I still need to finish Wasteland 2 and Alien, so in some future I can see myself playing this but it's definitely not the near future.

Not gonna lie, the best thing about that Charles Dexter Ward game is the Charles model looks exactly like H.P. Lovecraft. Which is great since CDW is probably the most self-insertion Lovecraft ever did.

Then I kept reading about it and S.T. Joshi is doing advisory work, and then I remembered where Agustin Cordes' name was so familiar - I loved Scratches (also I've got the reading comprehension of a seven year old apparently because Patrick put it right the fuck there). Suddenly this game seems really fucking cool to me, and I'm always struggling to figure out if The Case... is my favorite Lovecraft or not so now I'm putting money into this thing.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest is awesome. It's terrible, and one of the easiest games I've ever played, but fucking-A it's great

I'll admit that a lot of brutal death metal is just immature, misogynistic, dreadfully composed garbage. But man, you go to a Defeated Sanity or Devourment show and try to act chill in that atmosphere. I've never had more fun than going to see a bunch of terrible NYDM bands open for Dying Fetus a few years ago. So much fun, even though a ton of the people in that scene are the worst human beings possible. Glad that the majority of the musicians involved are just normal dudes, but the fans can be dumpster dwelling anti-humans.

Gonna agree with the people that have said Supernatural, but based on your disdain for monster of the week stuff Season 1 may be a little difficult to get through. S2-5 are really the highlights of the series where the characters really get fleshed out, the mythology becomes more than just slightly altered real-life analogues, and the writing stays fairly good consistently and throughout 2-5. Season 6 is where the show started to lose me a little bit, but that was still all right (man I would have killed for the Season 5 finale to be the series finale, holy shit). After S7-9 is just a shitshow and so hit or miss that I can't really get behind it.

I won't say I didn't enjoy those seasons in the moment but afterwards and when I started thinking about some of the episodes in them I realized they just don't hold up against the early stuff.

Nobody likes Daily Dota or the Chrono Trigger Endurance Run.

I hate DD but the Chrono Trigger ER was pretty all right by me. Ryan and Patrick was an amazing combo.

Good luck wherever you end up.

And say hi to Dave for us.

Never forget.

The Thing is definitely Lovecraftian - not Cthulhu Mythos or even his Poe worship, but it's totally got Dream Cycle written all over it. Plus it's amazing.

Die Farbre and The Whisperer are both fantastic.

I'm so massively skeptical of this, but deep - deep - inside I know this is the best news I'll hear all day.
