Interesting. I ended up enjoying the sequel a lot more than the original. I'm a metroidvania junky and I found the second one to scratch that itch a lot better than the first. Both are great though. The art is outstanding and was worth tinkering with my monitors HDR settings to get just right

it appears that Alan Wake 2 is on track to be even more popular than Control, with the 2023 sequel having sold 1.3 million units as of this month, the fastest selling Remedy game to date. "By comparison, Alan Wake 2 sold over 50% more copies and over three times more digital copies in its first two months than Control did in its first four months,"

I absolutely love this type of post! If there is interest I would definitely be down to make this another weekly stickied thing alongside the other thread. Anyone feel free to chime in if they want to see that

I'm excited for the Mario maker glitch showcase!

As far as I know it's made by the Rayman origins / legends devs. Origins is my favorite platformer of all time and metroidvania is my favorite genre. So I am super excited for this!

I can believe it being an accident. The character only has 8 lines of dialogue and it seems (if I am reading right) it's just the English dub that has this problem? He's voiced normally in the 4 other fully dubbed languages. It's truly a bizarre thing to have happened though

The article says that often during development they'll put in simple text to speech stuff for characters as a placeholder. I'd imagine to make sure certain audio hooks work and sound isnt broken

This sucks lol. I actually think netflixs gaming selection is pretty solid. I will immediately lose interest if they pull this though

On Android, not including stuff you can also get outside netflix:

  • deaths door
  • into the breach
  • shovel knight pocket dungeon
  • Poinpy (from the downwell dev)
  • Spiritfarer
  • Moonlighter

There's also a few things that you can get through Netflix that's also available outside of it, like dead cells, world of goo and btd6

Overall it's my go to place when I feel like finding a game to kill some time. They have a lot more than that but those are some of the higher quality ones

A bit click baity but the test results I found to be interesting and fun to read through

Yes I like free games :)

I'd prefer epic didn't have platform exclusives but at the end of the day it's still on PC and I really don't care that much about epic store stuff.

Your Sci-Fi suggestions

I haven't had any luck in finding sci-fi books recently. I'm looking for a longer story that takes its time to establish the world/universe and the characters living in it. I like the idea of exploring space or futuristic cities/landscapes and being on a journey together with the protagonist. The story doesn't have to have a...

Not really space-y but I'm obsessed with storm light archives which I think checks some of the boxes you're talking about. That and everything else cosmere too.

Yeah it def is a lot more fantasy but I also feel the world is so alien seeming it could fit the bill. I love how crustacean heavy the fauna is. But yeah not a traditional sci-fi setting by any means

I'm quite ignorant on financial stuff, but the guy introducing the bill to remove him has tried to introduce a different bill several times that normalizes cryptocurrencies into the US financial system and says that token based cryptocurrencies aren't securities. I don't necessarily trust his intentions here

I can see why Bitcoin is not considered a security but this seems to say most others are

https://www.reuters.com/business/finance/what-makes-crypto-asset-security-us-2023-06-07/

the classification as securities would effectively ban them in the US

I don't really see this as a bad thing. Cryptocurrencies are volatile and awful for the environment
