  1. oh shit I totally forgot this was coming out this year, I'm fukin ready for it
  2. SHINING SOUL [3] I dunno dude. I just needed something to play in bed because I've spent a lot of time in bed nursing sore muscles the last two days. It's an extremely, EXTREMELY mindless dungeon crawler that relies on you having friends to be any fun, but since I'm playing this on a cracked 3DS there's not gonna be any friends coming. It was probably way better when you had friends to play it with. RETURN OF THE OBRA DINN [4] So I posted about this at the start of the month, forgot that it was coming out this month, then saw it go on sale yesterday and immediately bought it and spent all day (Thursday is my Saturday) playing it. It's fucking fantastic. It's a Whodunnit for 60 Sailors, and it's an excellent example of non-linear storytelling. If spending $20 for a 7 hour trip to a spooky place that you can only really play once is worth it for you, then absolutely go for it. I'd say it's one of my favorite games of the year, but I have had strong dislike for extremely many of the games that came out this year, so what's that really worth to y'all?
  3. Hi! This is open for business again, thanks to the two hours a day I spend on public transport monday through wednesday. As with last year, only nominate one album. If you nominate two, I will listen to zero. There's three additional caveats: 1) Since I'll be listening to the album on the bus and making notes on the bus, the style of writing might be different. Before I was just typing while the music was going. Can't really do that on a bus (I don't have a laptop, before you ask). 2) Also, because of the whole bus thing, they'll be coming out slower than they did last year. As an added benefit, this means if you're next up you'll have more time to change your mind if something comes out. Also if you want to hear whatever else is happening this year (I know new Solange is on the horizon so I understand) before suggesting anything, the cut off date is the same as last year: December 31st. 3) No Kanye West anything. I didn't listen to Pusha T's new album because of Kanye. If I'm not going to listen to my favorite rapper's new album for my own satisfaction, I'm not going to listen to whatever else he did this year for yours. Sorry Teyana Taylor. Oh, and for the record, my album of the year is "In A Poem Unlimited" by U.S. Girls. I think it's perfect. Start to finish perfect.
  4. ok look i know that this is my second post about this record in this post, but I listened to it again on my bus ride home today and goddamn this is my favorite beat of the year. listen to this album.
  5. A few years ago I took time off my degree because my physical condition deteriorated so much that I couldn't sit through long lectures because I'd start crying from the pain in my leg. I went from the Deans List to failing two classes in one semester. Today was my first time getting myself home from college, and while it was painful, I only had to stop and sit down twice. Previously, I went from bench to bench, sometimes only making it a few dozen feet. So uh that rules
  6. Return of the Obra Dinn is out October 18th for $20. Return of the Obra Dinn is the new game from the developer of Papers Please. It's a supernatural murder mystery adventure game. It also has maybe the coolest art style I've ever seen in a game.
  7. Last year, I thought the new Shabazz Palaces records weren't for me. This summer, I shoved funk record after funk record into my face. I just went back to them this week, and yeah I was tripping last year. They're great.
  8. I'm not sure if anyone on here loves Liars the same way I do, but, just in case, the new Liars record that came out last month (Titles With The Word Fountain) is fucking completely amazing. It is, however, amazing in the same way that They Were Wrong So We Drowned was, which means that it seems like everyone fuckin hates it. It is the Angus's Raw Id record I thought TFCF could be, but this goes way further. However, if you were on Team Anti-Drowned, you'll strongly dislike this one.
  9. FORZA HORIZON 4 [4] Imagine a world in which Sega Rally Championship was the biggest racing franchise ever. Forza Horizon 4 is a game about games in that world. Its central conceit (we convinced Scotland to let us have an eternal car festival to the detriment of everyone living there who btw you never actually see) is similar to the Burnout Paradise "plot." At least in this you see that there are at some point drivers and people not currently driving. But then they add in like bossfights and shit. I dunno. I'm playing it through the Game Pass 14 day trial and it's fucking awesome and probably the Big Budget Game Of The Year.
  10. to be fair, that's because they have to meet deadlines in order to have money for food and shelter, so they can't deep dive into a single game's mechanics like someone playing it for pure entertainment can EDIT: I added a sidebar that made a lot more sense when I thought this was the general thread and not the upcoming game thread.
  11. Create New Wrestler, use which ever option isn't the "Start From Blank" one Load an edit, Delete is near the bottom
  12. I've never got the sense if I'm the only person that cares about milo or not, but I just bought concert tickets for his probably last show out here under that name so in honor of that, have some extremely good milo songs Take Advantage Of The Naysayer Bookoo Bread Co. (live) folk-metaphysics 2nd ed ecclesiastes
  13. Honestly I've meant to get caught up on this year's stuff since I'm taking public transport more and definitely have the time on there to listen to albums, but instead I've just been listening to Hermit & The Recluse (Ka and Animoss) over and over and over. It's all hypermassive chord beats that Ka sails over. Here's (roughly) how the record opens. Can't recommend it enough.
  14. i think battle royales skew the ratings just because like # Of Different Spots Per Match. It's considerably more rare in singles and tag matches. I'll say that length of match can do a lot to raise the rating.
  15. WELL THAT WAS A BAD MONTH+ the part that hurts worst is that now we might finish behind the fucking nats.
  16. I just dumped this in the other thread, so now here's some more words about Go For Your Guns. I started learning bass when I was 11 because of Les Claypool. So, I've always had an up and down relationship with funk. I understand that like a large part of the stuff I like about bass comes from funk, but I always had a hard time relating with it. I tried and tried but I was never able to find anything funk adjacent that drove as hard or fast as any of the rock stuff I really liked. This continued on until last year, where off a random recommendation I checked out Go For Your Guns. And I was like enjoying it alright! It drove harder than some of the other stuff I've messed with. Then this happens. And that's how I started the funk phase that I've been going through for like the last year.
  17. I think the modern equivalent of that would be "AYY, AYY, AYY, AYY"
  18. listen, just... here. learn you some. as for the hip hop thread name: "At Least Two Elements"
  19. So I've been spending the first month of the game downloading people's custom wrasslers because when Fire Promoter comes out I'm gonna use all custom wrestlers instead of trying to figure out who's real wrestlers are any good. My brother's been helping put things together, because where I have the Fire Pro brain he has the Sports Management Sim brain. Here are the fake promotions we've come up with so far. I'm also attaching the styles they'll be attempting to use- assuming it's that much like MOR- and the theme of each promotion. Not A Luxury (Strong, women's promotion) Kamigoye Here Often (Strong, everyone with kamigoye and/or golden trigger) Left Lane Pro Wrestling (King's Road, I asked my brother for "some kind of dividing thing because of the NOAH split" and this is what he came up with) Pro Wrestling RIGHT LANE (King's Road, but has stables) Loudmoufs (Showman, people who spam voice samples and/or have amazing gimmicks) BlownOut (Showman, Must Have Tattoos To Ride) unnamed hustle analog (Showman, The first guy I downloaded was this extremely anime looking dude just named Dennis, he's the Naoya Ogawa, Glenn Danzig is the Nobuhiko Takada, Glenn Danzig totally counts as a fictional character) Minute 2 Win It (Hardcore, people who look like scumbags or who use weapons (think IWA-MS), where the trademark gimmick match is an exploding ring that blows up one minute in) Enmascardo! (Lucha, masks) El Consejo de Caballeras (Lucha, hairs) MRTLRTS (Stoic, either people with shoot gimmicks or people who never goddamn pin ever) if the game makes me make another shootfighting promotion I'm going to download every podcast host I've seen and put them in the cage.
