Re: The 26 Game Challenge: play a game a fortnight - 2016

Little big planet Karting: complete (by my definition at least)

In progress:
Shadowrun Hong Kong
Cities: Skylines


What counts as completing cities Skylines?

Re: Tabletop Gaming

I like these games due to their simplicity and the fact you can play them drunk and have a good laugh, maybe even offend the odd person or two. That said if I'm not drunk(or only having a couple of bevvies) then I prefer games with more depth. I shall have a look at the entries on your list! I noti...

Re: The 26 Game Challenge: play a game a fortnight - 2016

Ok I'm in.

In progress: Little Big Planet Karting, Shadowrun: Hong Kong

Maybe we should post completion times or helpful recommendations for which games are short enough to make them easier to get finished?

I ended up getting my parter some Gamecom 788's when I found them for $98 at EB. She's pretty chuffed with them and they seem pretty good so far.

Re: Your "Game of the Year" Award.

Oh my god how few new games I've played this year.

I think my GOTY is actually Expand.

Like all the other new things I played were GOOD but nothing else was as neatly and beautifully tied together.

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Steam Winter sale has started. No daily deals or flash deals this year, probably linked to refunds now being a thing. Just several days of solid deals.

Re: New Australian gaming network provides local ISP-based game servers

As far as minecraft goes there's been some call for a modded server. As it stands I only have the resources to run one minecraft server so I've specifically chosen to make it one that's vanilla client friendly as a way of being inclusive. I can see putting up a modded server if I can get another mac...

Re: RE: Re: I need new headphones! What do people recommend?

hi acegiak! If you're looking specifically for stereo gaming headsets that cover both ears and not just a one-ear + mic you're def looking at probably $79 or above. Would they be for pc or console use? It's def worth going in knowing exactly what you need because some will only have Xbox one connec...

Re: Final Fantasy VII remake to be episodic and rather different

Any system where I need to grind on random encounters to progress can go die in a fire. Losing the turn based combat though, that does suck. I know that a bunch of people I know that enjoy final fantasy type games like the turn based combat because it makes them feel less pressured and have more tim...
