    It is really rad. I really rarely go back and watch old GB videos, but something about having chat there to interact with makes it really special.

    It's a little weird that Jason is so high level and helping fight these low rank monsters, he is just thrashing them and taking no damage which is not very representative of how those fights really go...

    I should add that I have a group of friends (most IRL but some online buds too) who play on the regular, there's probably ~10 of us and we get a 3-5 stack most nights. We are extremely chill, never fl...

    I'm a pretty regular Dota player and honestly I find you can diffuse the situation pretty quickly but mentioning that you're new, or haven't played in forever, and throwing out a sorry. Some people w...

    I had this issue for a little while yesterday, apparently it was a PSN thing. It did eventually go away though, after a few hours.

    @therealturk: Capturing in particular was a confusing one. I was getting bounties for capturing monsters before I even know how to do it. For the most part I think they do a pretty good of rolling t...

    Yeah, there were similar complaints in the "new player" thread, and just about everywhere on the internet. It's pretty clear they botched how they handled the traditional story quests with multiplay...

    I did some more digging on the partying system and found this pretty thorough post on reddit. Basically the advice for now is to go through the story missions solo because the partying system for it...

    @zeik: Yeah, we sort of figured that out, but when I joined my friends quest after it started, I didn't get credit for having completed the quest once we were done. It's frustrating for sure.

  • fenster posted a message in the forum topic How are people who haven't played any or much of the previous games liking this?. on the Monster Hunter: World board

    I think it's a matter of expectations. I've never played any Monster Hunter game before but have had a vague interest in the series for years now. At first glance the game does look like some sort ...

    @bollard said:Unfortunately not, the monsters are only balanced two ways (solo, or 2-4 player). One thing I would stress though is that in the full game this would be much less of an issue than it was...

  • fenster posted a message in the forum topic Interesting Switch usage data from Nintendo. on the Nintendo Switch board

    I'm actually kind of surprised at how much handheld there is. For me, the handheld is a nice perk for certain games like Stardew Valley, Shovel Knight etc. But for big marquee games (which I feel I...

  • fenster posted a message in the forum topic Why can't I stop playing this game? (now on switch). on the Stardew Valley board

    I think the first couple weeks of the game do kind of start a little slow, especially if you're new to this genre and aren't familiar with it. I think most people's large term goal (though maybe not ...

  • fenster posted a message in the forum topic Why can't I stop playing this game? (now on switch). on the Stardew Valley board

    Yeah, I'm basically reliving my arc of addiction to this game from when it came out on PC. Having it portable really makes it so much nicer -- even if I had a very busy day I can play a few days bef...

  • fenster posted a message in the forum topic Switch version releasing October 5th. on the Stardew Valley board

    Definitely buying it again. I played ~80 hours of Stardew when it came out, but that was almost a year and a half ago, and the idea of occasionally messing with my farm while in bed or in transit is...

    I just finished the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab. As far as YA fantasy goes, it was very enjoyable. My main gripe was that the second book doesn't really have much of an ending, just a se...

    Hm, I disagree I think. Like almost every National album, it took me a few listens, but I really enjoy it now. It feels a bit more...feverish?...than some of their other albums, which I kind of dig...
