    How do you survive the whole collapsing temple thing in the first mission of the top path of the first branch? It seems that you just need to be lucky to not become walled in. And the level is already pretty hard to get there.

    The lower branch, OTOH, is easycake compared with the second level. Can't count the number of times I crashed into the terrain there...

    That's part of what I meant about reading the map
    You can see that the "main path" clearly goes along the lower branch, ie. it probably is easier.

    The cave-in isn't that hard if you feel your hitbox and stay near the center. Then, only really evil constellations can kill you (but they are not THAT common).
    You absolutely have to finish it, though, as it unlocks the probably most useful subweapon: Scort. Also known as escort to normal human beings.

    The whole temple level is permanently burned into my muscle memory, though. Especially the miniboss.

    And yes, the second level is evil.

    A completely redesigned Xbox 360 was announced a couple of hours ago. It looks pretty good.

    According to the leaked photos from yesterday, it has one big fan right on the heatsink à la desktop x86 computer.

    From what I read on Pelit.fi (Finnish gaming mag website), they're supposedly going to start selling them tomorrow, although no details on whether that applies only to the NA region or EU as well.

    There are photos of the unit from a few angles in this Ars Technica article. (By the way, I think he's using it upside-down.) And from what I've read, they're apparently shipping TODAY to retailers, and they'll start selling in a week.

    Given that he showed that the vent was on the top, I doubt that.

    Then the official pictures on Microsoft's website are upside-down?

    Hey, if Microsoft loves blocking off their vents, they can go right ahead...

    Not exactly gaming, but didn't want to make a new thread.
    Might be interesting, especially to you, MK.

    Portal 2. You probably already seen the trailer. But have you seen the gameplay videos? This. Is. Amazing. (part one is kind of an extension of the trailer, watch whether you've seen the trailer or not)

    We COULD if Ville wanted us to. If you look on the right hand side of the reply posting screen, it says that all of these optional features are on except for embedding Flash. Maybe we (AKA Someone that isn't me..? ) ought to make a new thread petitioning for it. I see it being useful, as long as some way to avoid abuse was created.

    I actually watched the Nintendo conference livestream yesterday.

    We must have missed the unofficial Stranded II modification for Multiplayer! <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.unrealsoftware.de/forum_posts.php?post=157264&start=0">http://www.unrealsoftware.de/forum_post ... 64&start=0</a><!-- m -->

    Some day we should try the latest version, even though it's still a beta.

    Now that's a brilliant idea. A minesweeper RPG.
    It works pretty well, as it very much reduces the chance to loose with your first few clicks (you can survive the encounters),
    and sometimes when there's a lock-up, you just expanse in some other direction until you level up.

    In other words, it removes most flaws minesweeper has.

    (also, maniac version: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.hojamaka.com/game/mamono_sweeper_h/en.html">http://www.hojamaka.com/game/mamono_sweeper_h/en.html</a><!-- m -->

    Pretty fun. You just need to understand it well.
    #
    Amarth 6 years ago
    Hmm. Once you get the trick, it's really not hard. You can do 90% in mindless mode and the remaining 10% is just constraint passing (in that square must be that, so there must be that). Which is really easier than the usual minesweeper "suppose there is that, then that, contradiction".

    Harder modes seem just unfair. It's basically too hard to make meaningful deductive progress and you have to start guessing too soon.

    Strange that it's simpler to play, because it seems to be a generalization of minesweeper...

    that minesweeper is fun even though it's pretty easy even in hard mode, even though I had to hit a higher lvl monster once, seems bugged

    You're supposed to be able to survive stronger enemies, if they're not TOO strong.

    I never had to guess even in hard mode (whereas "never" means "probably once or twice") :>

    And by the way, you can click again on already unearthed monsters to show the number on their field.

    Jumpman is nice. The physics are a bit glitchy, as sometimes you can't jump over physical blocks. Apart from that, it's yet another good-time-wasting activity.

    I heard of a new game from this video. You control your mouse to get the cheese and bring it to the hole. There is an english version, but there are barely any players in that one, so you could just brush up on your french.

    Some people might have a golden wrench...


    I have a golden TRUCK!

    Sometimes bugs are hilarious.

    Oh well. Exposure to the golden wrench has driven most TF2 players obsessed for crafting.

    And me friends on Steam as well. But considering the improbability of getting one, I'd rather keep the items and craft them into new weapons later.

    You kind of guessed it, but Grim told me about it earlier today, on IRC.
    I don't really feel the need to keep up with stuff like that... :>

    Speaking of something else, I don't think we ever talked about Minecraft in here.

    I've seen it before. I still prefer Dwarf Fortress.
