Starbound looks fun
5 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-04 19:26
I keep hearing about Starbound, but what is the appeal? The site doesn't really explain the hype; is it terraria done right?
6 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-04 19:43
It basically does look like Terraria/Minecraft but more fleshed out with way more content. You can actually use furniture like chairs, farming system along with a cooking system (with specific categories like drink, snack, main course, etc), different races, lore with books and stuff like in the elder scrolls games, vehicles, etc.
There's also an infinite number of randomly generated planets to fly to with tons of variables like terrain, biomes, gravity, fauna, creatures (which are randomly generated themselves), towns and dungeons (again randomly generated and vary in style depending on what race they belong to, like the bird people an Aztec style and robots have medieval castles). All kinds of things that will hopefully make exploring fun for a good while.
Unfortunately it's a game I'm hyped for which means it will probably turn out to be bad ( ´_ゝ`)

With the Sims 4 announced, I thought I'd give the Sims 3 a real try. It took the entire morning to install all the expansion packs, but now I'm finally two hours into the game. The open world is very fun and you can really do a lot. Building homes can be as extensive as you like it and the customization is endless and easy. I still have to get used to the doll-like faces, though.

I dunno, it kinda looks that way. But a terraria with enough extra things that make it so it doesn't get boring after 5 hours would be great, and hopefully that's what starbound is

Still makes me feel a bit bad that i'm not yet living in a perfect town.

I just got the very last cage in Rayman 2 and I'm now just 1 lum away from 100% completion. This feels very satisfying because I didn't use any guides. The last lum is hidden somewhere in the first level so this is the perfect ending to a long journey.
36 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-26 16:17
I now have 999/999 lums and 80/80 cages. Yet my progress is still 99.9%! I remember that the final boss ate one of the lums during a cutscene, lowering the number of collectibles from 1000 to 999; maybe I have to defeat him once more.

Oh god, I remember this. This was one of the best games ever! I lost my disc though... It was also damaged, not allowing me to pass after defeating the robot army in the mid game or something... I thought about getting it again
38 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-26 19:01
I had to swallow my pride a bit and look up the location of the last lum when defeating the final boss did nothing. It was hidden in the graveyard level, presumably because the lum died when it was eaten.
You really had to know where to find the room it was hidden in, though. Because the path to it wasn't visible from places you could normally stand.
I had to fly around a shadowy corner and there I was greeted by a staircase spiraling down. Reaching the bottom, I stood eye to eye with a gigantic glowing skull across a lake of acid. Space pirates jumped out of each eye hole and started shooting at me. After defeating the two, a keg floated to the surface of the acid and I could advance. Another pair of pirates sprung up and, in turn, another keg appeared after their death.
I had now reached the last keg and three little spiders came crawling out of the skull. They didn't seem to attack me and I quickly dealt with them. I could now see a single lum floating in the left eye-socket. There was a spiders-web spanning the width of the room at the foot of the skull. I jumped onto it and gently floated into the left eye-socket. I captured the lum and was celebrated with a big 'YAHOOO' that popped up on the screen. There was a sharp decline after the skull and I dropped to the black.
I was then dropped somewhere in the level and everything was business as usual. I started with a lum count of 50/50 and this was still the case. I was worried there might be another challenge for the 100% completion I was pining for. Thankfully after finishing the level the save screen put me at ease. After my initals it said '100%'. Victory at last.
I somehow felt like writing this down. Thanks for reading.

What games are you looking forward to for the rest of the year, Post Officers? For me it's
-The Space Station 13 remake. SS13 has always been hit or miss with me, but I've been playing it for over 7 years and the thought of playing it on an engine that doesn't suck makes me giddy
-GTA5. It will likely be the last console game I ever play (at least for a good while), and I'm paranoid my 360 will die before I can finish it as a final twist of the knife. I'll probably end up getting the PC version too if/when that comes out, assuming I've upgraded by then and they don't drop the ball with the port.
-Starbound. Already mentioned in the thread. I hope it's fun
-Project Zomboid. I'm not as into zombies as some people are, but an open-ended ultimately hopeless survival game with permadeath sounds fun.

Osamu Sato, the guy who made LSD and its sequel Eastern Mind also made Chu-Ten (the kanji translates to something like 'middle heaven'). Only 100 or so copies were ever made and nobody was able to find and rip a copy until now. The soundtrack has been readily available, though.
Chu-Ten is kind of s sequel to Eastern Mind and doesn't have that much bearings with LSD at all except its trippiness.http://shutupcarlton.tumblr.com/post/54583988254/chu-teng-download-link

Eh, Mother 2 is bolder, but most of the time it feels like a shock and awe sort of boldness. 3 has a better narrative/gameplay on the whole, a grasp on subtleties of both. It's inches closer to perfection, and while Mother 2 certainly made me feel things at times, Mother 3 is the only game that's ever made me feel emotions as complex and involved as it did.
Everyone should play both for sure, though. Itoi is a wonderful creative mind whose work I hope to see more of in the future.

I haven't played it, but I was around when a friend of mine finished it and he seemed pretty disappointed in the final boss fight and the story's conclusion. I'd probably still go ahead and finish it just because you're already so far into it. >>77
The Metroid Prime games are really great but the controls might take some getting used to. You may want to start with Super Metroid because it's in 2D and would be easier to control. I think you can download it on the Wii.

Though this is a highly specific idea, it is in fact a real thing. But with guns! It's called Teeworlds. It's free, open source, and compiled for all OSes. You make your "Tee", grab a weapon, and start killing. It's fun and really cute.
