  1. A look at a new town:
  2. The Witcher 3: Complete Edition

    That's earlier than expected! It does look rough but hopefully that's also seeing it in hi-def in Youtube - watching it running on the Switch will probably make it look better. But I hope they at least can keep it at a steady framerate - that's far more important to me. I'll definitely get it but not until early next year, I think. There's just too many games on this side of Christmas and I do expect this to drop in price rather quickly. I'm currently reading the books and have made a dent in The Time of Contempt. Enjoying them thus far.
  3. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    I have complety mixed up Shakedown Hawaii and Hotline Miami. Like.. Total mixup. And I have apparently got the idea that Miami had already appeared on Wii U. Then I guess that announcement was a bit bigger than I first thought.
  4. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    I honestly can't see whats so great about Superhot and I'm kind of glad that I got that spoiled as I wouldn't have seen enough of it in that trailer to see what was going on. Hotline Miami Collection isn't much of a surprise since the second game is on Switch. So I'm only sad that I knew about Ori but since it was only a matter of time before it was properly announced, I didn't mind it much. But generally, yes, leaks are unfortunate. If they only stated it like a rumour, I would like it more as it leaves room for more speculation.
  5. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    Hmm. Yeah, that wasn't too exciting but a few games stood out to me: Ori naturally, but I'm also concerned that it doesn't really hold up anymore. To me, it seems like the Metroidvania genre has shifted a bit after the release of games like Hollow Knight. The Touryst had an interesting premise and graphic style. Eastward seemed interesting as well. Then there were some already known games in the reel in the end that were interesting:
  6. Exercise & Fitness: 2019 Edition!

    Finally got my squat rack yesterday and I now have a completely functional home gym (perhaps except two things: a bench and a pull-up bar). The important thing is that it can be stowed away and this is how it looks when stowed away: There is more or less a cubic meter in that space. I think that's an acceptable amount of space to use on training equipment. The rowing machine is in another place, though. That obviously doesn't fit. I haven't tried the squat rack yet but it seems fine and sturdy. It can't take more than 100 kg but I don't even have that so it's fine. Lately I've been doing more cardio than strength. Running 4-6 km twice a week and rowing 20 minutes once a week (I manage about 5.6 km in that amount of time) and then some gymnastics (push-ups, squats, etc., no weights) but I'll try to get a new routine at home with some strength a couple of times a week.
  7. Astral Chain -- August 30th 2019

    I'm not that far in the game but given what I've played I'd guess about 15 hours for the main story on casual.
  8. General Switch Discussion

    I think you are right. Which is kind of sad since I've only played that game with the JoyCons once.
  9. General Switch Discussion

    It was the very first thing I did when I got my first game. That and smell the box. Nothing like the smell of new game.
  10. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Wasn't aware of the event. It was stupid of us to trade at that time as we became Ultra Friends a couple of weeks later. However, I'm glad that I got my Gible before going on vacation so I could have it as my buddy while walking a lot around - just passed 200 km with it (also gave it 50 Rare Candy that I had stocked for it so I'm actually almost able to get a Garchomp now - but I won't until I can get a GIble with higher stats - it's only got 2 stars). In other news, something has happened so biking at lower speeds using Adventure Sync can hatch eggs for you! I've already passed 20 km this week due to this (usually never go past 30-35 km in a week). So I just hope this isn't a bug. Also lately, I've been hatching a lot of Riolu. Currently have three and have transferred one away - I already have a Lucario.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    Had an issue with drifting yesterday and noticed this on my control stick: Seems like something's broken off. I haven't noticed it before now but it's possible that it's been like that for some time. Hopefully Nintendo's support will help me out as it clicks in that position when going round.
  12. New forms are boring but it's nice that they are making new evolutions of old Pokémon.
  13. Job woes/wins

    I started at a new place last September and I am enjoying it quite much. I've learnt a great deal about modern software development, Java, and about starting a new place. However, socially I'm having a bit of a hard time. While people are nice, I haven't found many that I "click" with, partially due to the fact that I'm working off site on a project that is starting to end so people are moving away from it. This means that we are relatively few people left at this place. On top of this, there has been quite a few resignations over the past year and it feels like every one that I tried to get close to just left afterwards. It's getting a bit frustrating now since there has just been a resignation from one that I have worked closely together with over the past half year. I felt that I had great fun with him so it's sad that he is leaving. But the tasks I have got have been really good and I'm still enjoying the job. I just wish I were better at socialising.
  14. General Switch Discussion

    The E3 trailer looks great:
  15. General Switch Discussion

    Yeah, probably getting that. Looks good. Just hope it's not out too soon. Hehe
  16. Just confirmed for a Switch release after long-going rumours. Out July 26th.
  17. Indie Games

    Never heard of it before. Watched a trailer and didn't really feel it.
  18. What Have You Bought?

    Just bought the last two books of the first three books in The Witcher series to warm up to the series in December. Thought they'd make for a good reading during my vacation next week. Couldn't find the first book in a store but found a store that could guarantee that I'd get it before I go south on Saturday. I'm looking forward to reading them, it's been a while since I've lady read a book (due to parenthood).
  19. Marvel's Phase Three

    Yeah, that's great news. Even though
  20. General Switch Discussion

    I remember back in the N64 days. The controllers at the demo stands were completely useless with no friction left in the control stick at all.
  21. General TV Thread

    New trailer for the Watchmen series airing in October :
  22. Marvel's Phase Three

    Hmm. Probably won't watch many of them, the characters are just not that great.
  23. Arrowverse TV Shows

    That's really funny. I haven't followed the shows since season 4 of Arrow but may watch this crossover. Sounds interesting.
  24. General TV Thread

    Full trailer for His Dark Materials: Looks awesome. This is the treatment the books deserve.
  25. Switch eShop Thread

    Wow, that's cheap! I haven't played the games, I think, so just picked it up as well - I had some gold coins I could just as well spend on it so it was about a quarter of a pound for me. Reasonable price. Thanks for the heads up.
