Lovecraftian board game Mansions of Madness is getting a video game adaptation

Toothball

@Nemesis It does come with a selection of fairly nice miniatures for the price. Kind of unusual for a non-Kickstarter game these days.

Rare outlines next few months of content updates for Sea of Thieves

@oldskooldeano Yeah, I don't mind the occasional chase, but when you lose a couple of hours of effort because someone else doesn't want to put in that same effort it isn't much fun.

@pelican_ Sea of Thieves isn't just a PvP game though. It's not like I've joined a Call of Duty deathmatch and expect to be able to look at the scenery. There's a variety of cooperative activities in the game and some people would like to be able to enjoy those without finding themselves losing hours of progress because some other crew thought it was funny.

Here's hoping this will give the more grief-inclined crews something better to do than to chase you down relentlessly when you just want to hand in some chickens at the outpost. I don't mind that there's not a lot to do at the moment, I'd just like to be able to do what there is without being chased for half an hour.

Sea of Thieves review - a Rare treasure

Toothball

4 weeks ago

I bought the game outright and have been having a tremendous time with it. One thing I have been enjoying is the lack of instruction. It initially seemed frustrating not to be told how to sail, or where to go to get things and so on, but after a week it seems like much of the learning is intended to come from other players. I've found out so many things about sailing and piracy from talking to other people in the game. I now see that the game's tutorial is to jump on board with some other players and get them to show you the ropes!

Arms keeps swinging with another new update

Toothball

3 months ago

I like the idea of Tournament mode. I've not played a lot of Arms, but the prospect of grinding enough coins to buy arms for every character looked exhausting. This'll be good for sticking it on when I have people over to play. Probably for tournaments too, I guess. I don't expect to be competing in any though.

Kinect was amazing - in a museum

Toothball

4 months ago

My best experience with Kinect was also in a museum. There was a Game On exhibition (or one similar) touring the country, and in the rhythm gaming section they had a Dance Central setup, with way more space than I had in my bedroom. But despite the lack of space on my usual dance floor I'd had enough practice and could actually play the game, and so I started to get a small burst of applause after each song from the few people who had stopped to watch. It was nice to hear, but I mostly miss having such a large space available to play.

@SuperSoupy

That Mega Drive is just licensed by Sega rather than being produced by them. It reportedly has weak emulation, and half the games aren't Mega Drive games at all, instead being short throwaway games.

Maybe it's easier to manage the servers this way, requiring a networks team to be on standby for one weekend instead of two. It's not so bad, as even if you plan to play Splatoon for 24 hours continuously, you will still have 48 hours left to join in with the ARMS event.

I'm interested to see what games they choose to turn into digital games. Most of Fantasy Flight's recent games have been designed to be collectible in some way, such as their Living Card Games (Legend of the Five Rings, Arkham Horror Cards), minature games (X Wing, Armada, Runewars), campaign-based games (Imperial Assault, Descent) or the new combination of cards and dice that is Star Wars Destiny. Any of those would present an interesting set of challenges to convert to a digital format.

They still have some standalone games, so maybe Twilight Imperium 4 would be a good place to start. The biggest challenge with that game is usually finding a large enough table to play on.

Minor detail, but Fantasy Flight no longer publish Fury of Dracula. That game was included in their partnership with Games Workshop, which ended last year. Fortunately for fans of that game, it'll be coming back from WizKids at some point.

If there is a transfer option it will presumably be possible for Nintendo's service team to use it when you send in your device for repair. If they're sending a replacement they'll have both devices on hand. I do hope so anyway.

The Save Data transfer option would have helped me a couple of months ago, when I had to sent my Switch in for repairs and they just sent a fresh replacement. At least that should mean that anyone getting repairs in future shouldn't need to worry about their data.

I did enjoy collecting games and I still have a large collection of cartridges and discs on shelves. But then I ran out of space to keep them, and moving house was getting harder and harder. I switched to digital when it meant that my portable consoles could contain most of their libraries, and then later at home when it meant that I could launch a game with the press of a button.

I do understand the appeal of having physical copies of a game on your shelf, but is it that big a stretch of the imagination that some people might not place such a value on that?

Many people don't sell their games after playing them, so for them resale value is irrelevant. And the ease of use factor can be appealing when you don't have to get a game off the shelf to play it.

I hope they've fixed the issue where audio output is forced to the device when you have a bluetooth headset connected. I spent a week getting really confused why music wasn't playing through my bluetooth headphones until I restarted my phone, until I realised that the Switch app was stealing all the sound.
