Adding Overland to my future wantlist. I love the cel-shaded graphics and the turn-based gameplay vaguely reminds me of Metal Gear for Sony PSP which I was quite surprised to enjoy as immensely as I did.
HawtNoodle: Oh man, it reminds me of a book I had as a kid, it had some VERY busy drawings filled to the brim with people and stuff and on the side there were a few things you had to find within the drawing. So much fun.
captain: @HawtNoodle - where's Waldo? :)
HawtNoodle: @captain nah but you could compare it with that, it was some bear in a raincoat I believe.
Zelda Breath of the Wild "Expansion Pass" was just announced. Hmm... not sure how I feel about this. Yeah, DLC's are nothing new, but this makes me wonder if the game's not done and/or they're trying to eke out as much money as possible. Whatever the case, it makes for an expensive game if you're after the full experience.
random87: What/where exactly is the feed icon? :OOh and is there a way to see all the people you're blocking so you can easily unblock them when needed?Otherwise great feature!I've got another question though, or maybe even a request.I've noticed that - just like the pre-site-revamp basilmarket stories page - you can only have one story on the front page at a time.Doesn't that limit the activity on the site? Say I make stories daily, and some quick BZLr's(?) BZLee(?) start a conversation, but during that conversation I post another story, so now the story doesn't appear on the front page anymore, the people that don't browse BZL day and night won't even know any conversation happened!How about a limit of two stories at the time?I feel like a limit of two stories of the same person would still be good enough to stop spam.And now, in the worst case you can just hide stories, which pretty much solves any spam issues.
captain: @random87: pardon, there was a little bug, you should see the feed icon now on the front page for the automated stories. Atm there is no page showing you all the accounts you are blocking, that is on my to do list.You're correct that the front page will only show one story per member. This is a new thing and was done to prevent "doubling up" from an account which looks a bit spammy. I've gone with more independent news sources so I'll relax the limit to what it was before. We can revisit this again if/when it becomes an issue. Thanks for the feedback.
FriedClams: I did not like the stories from the companies because their descriptions were not real stories but carefully chosen words from their respective marketing teams. If a game were to be put here, a user would post a picture or link a video and write a more genuine story with his/her opinions. Also, games chosen by users are ones they want to share, while the companies will just market every game they produce in hopes of making a sale. If you want to start more conversations, I would like if it you turned on notifications when people @ each other so they know someone is talking to them. Do not forget that conversations are started naturally and cannot be forced. There are so many games out there it will be difficult to find common ground among everyone. BasilMarket had the common ground of MapleStory. Good luck with the site! While you ponder your changes, enjoy some fish and chips!
joblessjim: Definitely Liking the twitch implementation. Looking forward to the future stuff!
syrup: @rtyu: me2. I remember standing out in the cold for the Wii back in the day! I hope this doesn't become similarly disappointing fairly quick post launch.
FriedClams: $300 will buy you a lot of cannolis.
EternalMemory: Thinking about this(and this is only me), a console(or whatever platform! It can even be a PC!) is good if it has good-games. That is why I prefer the Xbox-One over a PS4, because Xbox-One has the Forza-series(and even the Horizon) that has transferable-progress of Livery-Designs that you have sank so much hours-on, in order to create atleast your own Gallery that you take pride on. Not to mention that game is massive and has economy! About the yearly-fee, I would rather pay that! Whereas PS4, I would rather play FFXIV: ARR in the PC-Platform for better functionality, and the exclusive FFXV sucks!If you can justify to me good long-term games in this console(even atleast one), I might give it a look, but sorry, I'm gonna have to pass for now. I would rather invest that $300 on Paying to-Progress in Revelation Online to be spent on Ausgyths(whatever way to bypass it) and Phlogistons. To be honest, I am a person who plays games for Progress and Rewards. This is my way of enjoying a game as well as a community ofcourse. Im gonna pass, sorry. I will stick to my plan of Revelation Online to Bless Online. By the time Bless Online comes out, I'm already 79 on my Swordmage and is grinding to cap my Mule.
Watching first 17 minutes of Legend of Zelda, Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch in gorgeous 1080p60 HD. Oh boy, at times nostalgic to see something similar and yet freshly vast. I wonder how much game time this will take? How much exploration can you really do? How many secrets can be found? I can't wait. It looks beautiful.
