Really love that VHS copy of Warrior of the Lost World in the video store.

The guy from Paper Chase was in that movie!

Perfect Stride looks freakin' awesome. Totally understand Patricks reaction to it. Somehow reminds me of the feeling I had playing Ballistics back in the day.

Shoot, can't believe I didn't catch that. It looks like XSplit doesn't play nicely with, specifically, OpenGL games. Sorry about that.

The last game was really awesome. But sometimes, for me anyway, indie games can just be to indie to enjoy. I guess it's a case of trying to hard?

HEY KATIE (Katy? Caitie? KT? K Dogg?)

My sister goes by K Dogg, sometimes, in a joking manner. Her name is not Katie, but yeah, my sister is rad.

Perfect Stride might be the best showboarding game in ages.

Videoheroes could be legitimately amazing if it were expanded.

LA Death Disc is fun, but I wish I could be playing the 2-4 player deathmatches with 360 controllers. Anyone know the best all-purpose way or program to set up controller support for some of these?

Was that Moth game social commentary on how humans are nothing more than moths flocking to the tiny luminescence of their smart phones and other technological devices?

Perfect Stride looks amazing. It imagines a world where Tony Hawk never did the 900 and became famous and so Perfect Stride is how everyone knows skateboarding games. Also, dat music :D

If Perfect Stride looks interesting, check out the ArcaneKids' previous game Zineth at http://zinethgame.tumblr.com/

http://www.giantbomb.com/zineth/3030-40943/

It is basically a roller-blading game like Jet Set Radio Future crossed with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, crossed with a bit of pokemon. You area guy with a rollerblading robot suit, delivering Magazines as your new job, and you get various tasks from your boss. You keep track of these tasks on your mobile phone, which also has a pokemon like game build into it, which you can play against the NPCs in the game (and you have to get good at it to complete the real tasks of the game). The 4th task that you get is really the last task of the game, so don't worry about it for a while (it involves the moon).

The interesting thing is, if using an xbox controller, the left stick controls your character while the right stick controls the phone, so you can move and use the phone at the same time. The movement system is really great, and you build up a nice flow of moving around from obstacle to obstacle and it has the same kind of rewind time system if you miss a jump. There is a big city like structure that you have to explore and climb to the top of.

Don't worry Patrick, your love test was inaccurate because you didn't use full names!

It actually said "Grimes Grimes", and the only thing I could think of was the band Grimes. Maybe whoever did the art/music was a fan of both bands? Not really sure.

That intro to Perfect Stride was one of the greatest things I've ever seen in a video game.

And now I imagined Ryan losing his shit to that game and made myself real sad. Goddamnit.

@automatontribe: It is mislabeling a Crystal Castles poster as a Grimes poster for maximum irony because that's the hipster seapunk life.

What would it return if both of them had the same last name? High compatibility due to marriage, or low compatibility due to incest?

Patty/Pattie is common female name but I have never heard of one shortening it to Pat.

"Let me sprinkle some magic on you," I said to the comely young lady tending the bar when said lady introduced me to the bouncer and the bouncer introduced me to the pavement of the street out back. :(
