@hunter5024: Yeah I can't search the podcast list either, there's a topic about it on the bug reporting forum, thanks for the info though, found it in the video feed Here, about 10 minutes in he starts talking about it.

@vocalcannibal: Sadly He doesn't talk about the ones in New York, but they're probably pretty cool. You'd get some talented people working on it in such a diverse city.

I want to try a small group one as well, the one I did yesterday was a group of 10 people. We all knew each other in some way, either through me or my brother, as we organized it together, but doing something with just a couple people or 4 or 5 would be interesting as well.

Same problem with all podcast pages, on Chrome here.

@hunter5024: Don't suppose you remember what episode that was? think I missed that one.

Couldn't find any topics on it yet, but I know the Idle Thumbs guys have talked about it in the last year.

These guys.

Canada or

US

Scrap the company that designed it is one of the originals out of Japan, and eventually San Francisco. There are a lot of imitators, but this was really well designed, Has great atmosphere, and while it's hard as hell, you rarely feel like you're dumb, just that you're missing more clues, which is probably accurate. The one in TO was the same design as the SF one, 1.8% of people made it out of the SF version. We did not manage to escape, but got within a few stages of getting out, which was very frustrating, we were on the right path, but we skipped a major part of the puzzle early on that left us with a lot of red herrings that wasted time and people for the later half. The game runner guy said that the specific thing we found, and then figured out how to put to use almost right away was pretty much unheard of which is a bit of a pain, but it's not the games fault. We would have gotten about the same distance either either solving the long, hard puzzle, or wasting time on it.

I won't spoil much as they do rerun games in different cities, but if these guys run it near you, check it out, super fun for the nerdy brain. If another organization does it, look into it, but I don't know how well designed it'd be, so do your research.

If there are any non-spoilery questions I'd be happy to share. Also if anybody has played Volume 2, I'd love to hear if it's worth it or not.

Of the more recent stuff, this definitely springs to mind

@pete0r: This exact version of the concept works best in some form of fantasy sure, but In GTA you just wake up in a hospital, why is that any different? Also think bigger. I think it was Alex that tweeted something about trying this out in a wrestling game. Any sports franchise would be great though, working your way through the ranks, building up to the big boys at the end, have something like a morale system so beating somebody who beat you at hockey a few games back gives your team a stat boost. There's a lot of cool ways to work it, and hopefully a bunch we can't even imagine.

@thebatmobile Ha, yeah that'd be weird.

This situation seemed to work out perfectly as none of us knew anything about this feature previously, it popped up and I heard about it because her boyfriend texted me saying he walked into the room and she yelled "I have to avenge Dave!(me), this fucker killed him!" as she road furiously across the blasted wastelands on a caragor to face my killer.

Definitely helped with immersion there.

The game can do this? I had no idea.

A buddy just got a quest telling her to avenge my death. It was the same name and character design of the Orc Captain and everything, Sadly she failed and the bastard got away, but would he have died in my game if she succeeded? will he gain power for me now since he survived?

I haven't heard anything about this feature.

Notch Seems like a good dude and always has, I wouldn't be surprised if he did something like fund his own scholarship program, or programming school, or just gave away half the damn money, most people could live in absolute comfort for a few million anyway, having a couple billion is excessive for anyone.

If he doesn't though, whatever, good for him for never being a dick or screwing his customers/fans over in any major way and still making off like a bandit at the end of it.
