  1. What music have you listened to recently?

    fck yeah beach house <3 Been on and off again digging in to Hammock, but didn't notice they released a new album (sometime) last year. It might just be "the honeymoon phase" but so far this is a damn good one. The opening tune itself is something that sounds like it will stick around for a long time for me, totally gives me Jonsi & Alex vibes!
  2. The cost of games

    “Worst game I’ve ever played! 0/10” (play time 200 hours)
  3. Mute

    Might as well post this here, I had no idea about this movie until the other day but as a big fan of Moon I'm looking forward to it. There's hardly any information about it yet but the director (Duncan Jones) described it as a spiritual sequel to Moon. Apparently out on Netflix next month (so I guess I'll keep it for at least one more month then :P) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1464763/
  4. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

    On the off chance you understand Swedish here’s a pretty nice little 3 part video of a studio visit to Machinegames by Fragzone, not too informative to a developer but still a neat look at the studio and their process. I have a lot of respect for the guys over there. It feels like they have a really strong direction to how they make (and stick to how they make) their games and I think it really shows. Wish I had the chance to work with a bunch of them before they left Starbreeze.
  5. Rime

    Guess this thread is a billion years old but I finally got the game - on Switch. It's cool, I like the ambiance in it a lot! But I'm pretty disappointed in how poor the performance is in a lot of the open exteriors.
  6. Max Payne... 16 Years Later

    MP1: Quick save, kill everyone while slowmo-jumping once, repeat 17 times until you get it perfectly, move on. Need to replay this someday, been way too long.
  7. Invisible walls frustration

    Because nowadays devs receive death treats if someone finds an "unintended" advantageous spot anywhere in a map Seriously though I’m not a big fan of invisible walls either (and I’m definitely to blame for a bunch of these throughout the years...). Whenever possible I think it at least helps trying to make a surface you can’t stand on look like it’s dangerous, slopes or otherwise obstructed in some way. Having a recognizable shape language for these types of surfaces throughout the game helps a lot too.
  8. Cuphead

    Oh shit I didn't know it had coop, that's awesome! Looks super cool but pretty (very!?) difficult from what I've seen. Definitely getting this
  9. What music have you listened to recently?

    Mogwai's new album is starting to sound really freaking good. Sound wall is back! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pRfkpAQkjbA
  10. AoE IV

    Really hope they'll show some gameplay in the coming days too!
  11. Battlefront 2

    Looks really stunning! With a campaign I feel I should definitely pick this up. Didn't quite give the previous one enough time I'm afraid.
  12. Overwatch

    This is really cool Fanmade map by a student!
  13. Ubisoft opens a studio in Stockholm

    I think there was talk of something like this a long time ago (or maybe I'm getting the studios mixed up :p)... anyway it's great to see more studios in Stockholm!
  14. What have you watched recently?

    It was alright. At times I got this kind of childhood adventure/mystery vibe which was pretty awesome. Also features a young Ron Perlman so it's worth it just for that! It's a little silly and cheesy for sure but it goes well with what this guys is usually doing. Don't go in expecting something like Pan's Labyrinth tho... Nowhere near that good IMO.
  15. What have you watched recently?

    Ah that sucks. I found it as a buy/rent movie with English subtitles on Amazon's streaming app. I doubt the library is the same globally but I guess it could be worth a shot in case you have that.
