How many times must you defy the Jack Pirtles Conglomerate? In the past thread the new title was declared following Elder FlyMike’s dissertation:

Tennessee: Put the Ball in the Hole

Tennessee: Who gives 2 fucks, we only give one. 2 fucks is for rich people, haters.

Tennessee: 3D in theaters summer 2012.

I just got done playing Child of Eden on kinect and damn… that game is awesome.

Nope. I doubt that’s ever going to happen.

So Catherine is seriously good thus far. Very heavy on the story, but I like the way it’s woven into it. That said, aside from the cutscenes you get as much of it as you want to put in, sort of like talking to people in RPG towns tend to be in the fact that it’s optional, but you often learn a lot about the game world or flesh out characters form doing it. And from what I’ve seen, your reactions to conversations and texts have definitely affected the story so far, even this early in the game. As for the puzzle scenes, they’re hard as shit and I love it. It’s like what would happen if you took Q-Bert and crossed it with a block-pushing game, then threw in a giant demon with a fork who wants to stab you with it. I’m playing on easy and I’ve died many times already. You don’t get that kind of a challenge much these days, except for games like VVVVVV (really, go get the Humble Indie Bundle) and Super Meat Boy. It also has that dangerous habit of making you want to see what is next, and you keep going “okay, I’ll do this and then go to bed”, but then find that two hours have passed.

Something else I appreciate is the way it really makes you think about certain things. It’s not just haphazardly crawling around or reacting to things, you have to approach stages with a serious plan in mind and think two or three moves in advance. It seems daunting at first, but the game has a method of teaching you new techniques through conversations that you’ll see and go “AHA! I wish I would have thought of that!”

So far my biggest gripe is that the marketing misrepresents the game. It’s not a big animated tit-fest like the advertisements seem to make it look, and I feel like that will turn people away from it. Give the demo a try if you like puzzle games. I know it’s only my first day playing it, but so far it feels very refreshing and original.


#14

we should just call that game “Underage Titty Q-bert”


#15

FFUUUU IT CAN HAPPEN IN MY DREAMS…Sorry I didn’t stop by today. For some reason, whenever I have off, all of the shit seems to happen at once. I’ll be happy enough if I make it to Hastings tomorrow. If that plan ends up falling through, I may hit you up for some drunken MvC3 matches. Just let me know what type of liquor you like.

I ended up switching Deadpool for Taskmaster as my anchor, and the change is amazing. I’ve noticed that Taskie has a ton of options for keep-away and “OH SH–!” situations. Also, dat air juggle. I’ve been trying to figure out a good replacement for Trish, but I like the block pressure and zoning with her. My buddy was pissed earlier because we played a ton of matches with his new MvC3 PDP fightpad. I won every fight. He says I’m the best hes played, but I think I still suck horribly. I love the clicking of that fightpad.

When I first heard about the game, it was labeled as an “erotic horror puzzle game.” Needless to say, I was confused and interested at the same time. I’ve been hearing that its alright.


#16

All weekend long probably. I’m down to just sit around a get drunk and talk shit about top players like I’m really good.


#17

I might come out there. My plans seem to have fallen through for this weekend, and with Saturday being my birthday, I just want to party somewhere lol. Send out the invites for “Drunk Birthday Fuck a Evo Cookout 2011 plus 1” thats the official name of the event if I can make it out


#18

Chris comes back that day too and I’ll extend an invitation to Sherry, mMke, James, Lorenzo and others. I’m not sure if I want a party or a gathering yet. Parties are always a hastle to clean up.


#19

Scotch, but tonight would be a BAD night. I have a French final tomorrow that I need to pass.

See? Told you he’d be a good fit for you and your team.
