Yay! Quicklooks! :D

Also, this game is really great. Couldn't put it down until I finished it and can't recommend it enough.

It also has some awesome visual filters (great CRT filter and a neat broken wire filter).

@daweboss: Here in Germany only old-ish houses or restaurants have gas stoves. Virtually all other households have electric / induction stoves.

I have a flat wok, too. It's a compromise, yes, you cannot really fry with this as with an actual carbon steel wok and an open gas flame but at least it's big enough to toss the ingredients around without making a mess. That's the difference to a normal pan.

Actually I considered getting some kind of on-top gas stove and a real wok but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. The logistics of it all just seem too inconvenient.

Very enjoyable watch so far. Good vibes despite the remote situation.

I wish Jeff would stream more Cyber Shadow!

The art style is not bad - a very competent rendition of somewhat modern Saturday morning cartoons - but it misses the mark SO MUCH as a Battletoads game. The color palette, the vibe etc. It's all very different. Even the music feels "wrong"; too much shrill guitar shredding, not enough catchy buttrock riffs (which was a core ingredient to the flow of the old games).

And hell, the movement still looks like the Toads wade through molasses. Didn't they already speed it up or something after the first reactions when they revealed the game? The speed of the music is also at odds with what's happening on screen.

Sometimes a certain kind of game comes along at exactly the right time. This is one of these times for me. Can't wait to lose myself in this world.

I will be honest, the backseat gamers in the chat and Jan paying so much attention to them is starting to really drag the fun out of watching this for me.

Also, Jan, please don't just run through new areas. You are missing so much on the way and in the end you'll die anyway because you're not as aware of the surroundings and that's when the game gets you.

Fantastic game!

However, I'm not a fan of these huge resolutions for classic game makeovers, I have to say. Everything looks too far away, like a map screen, and some fixed elements/windows become so tiny on screen. Not particularly easy on the eyes.

Wish he'd play with the original resolution which is fine because the pixel art is gorgeous.

Yeah, I enjoyed this a lot but Doom 2016 is overall more cohesive.

Agreed that Doom Eternal shits the bed with its attempt at lore and backstory. It's as if this game had completely different writers than 2016.

Nice. One of the best platformers ever made along with Rayman Origins and SMB.

(yes, I consider pretty much all Mario games to be lower tier than those games)
