They're just doing too much mainstream stuff I can find everywhere on youtube: fortnite, minecraft, sims, cod.. It's just not interesting at all. I only watch the trucking and drumming and the podcasts. And the Astroneer stuff can be very entertaining.
Would've loved some QL's of games like Wintermoor Tactics Club, Garden Flipper, Signs of the Sojourner, Cloudpunk and a bunch more interesting games that came out in the last couple of months.
Sticks and Bones: I never played a game that completely relies on slapstick humor to convey a story, until Sticks and Bones! It's set in a pirate-y world where you're a skeleton trying to avoid humans in comical ways. It's very short (40-60 minutes) and cheap. It also has a bunny riding a bird while holding a gun, so there you go.
DARQ: A horror puzzle game that goes places. It's gorgeous and I was surprised by how neat some of the puzzles are presented, with fantastic level design. There's a maze puzzle that had such a great twist to it, I still think about it a lot. I loved this game and that's coming from someone who usually hates horror games.
Deliver Us the Moon: A Sci-Fi game set on the moon. You're a lone guy send to the moon to figure out what happened to the people stationed there, and also to save humanity from extinction. I guess you could call it a walking simulator, but it's a little more involved. It's beautiful and I enjoyed the story a lot. It does outstay it's welcome a little bit, I think they could've have made it a bit shorter. Definitely check it out if you enjoyed games like The Station or Tacoma.
Druidstone: A turn-based RPG made by the developers of the Grimrock games. Just a very straightforward tactics game that doesn't waste a lot of time with the story and there's some minor puzzle-solving, but it's mostly just about clearing levels in the most efficient ways. You can easily go back to levels you finished to get a higher rating. Looks lovely and there's a surprising amount of depth in the combat.
Dawn of Man: A survival/strategy/"city" builder game where you just have to survive against the elements, animals and raiders. The game doesn't hold your hand very much at all and it's gets harder the longer you survive. Check it out if you liked Banished.
I like the stuff that makes the podcast easier to follow, like the splitscreen and inserting news articles. But I really don't need all the silly stuff that's in upf that's distracting from the conversation, explody transitions and catfaces, etc. I'll probably switch to the audio version of the podcast if that happens.
Nice to see you guys trying to evolve, either way :)
After using a keypad for a while, I can't go back to regular keyboards for gaming. You have quick access to way more buttons. I used to get Orbweavers but they all died after a couple of months, Razer's quality control is an absolute nightmare. I am currently using a Logitech G13 and it's way better. I really hope they'll release a new version in the future with mechanical keys.
My current setup: Logitech G13 - Asus RoG Claymore - Logitech G502
