Having grown up on NES / SNES, there's a soft spot in my heart for classic RPG's like Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana, etc etc. Strangely though, I never played Earthbound, which people are still raving about. But alas, it's fun to watch these streams of people doing speed runs of these classics. ... more

DeeMon: Yes, what both of y'all says. I had to delete my Paladin story thing because I typed 31st instead of 32nd. I'm surprised that I lost count of my own characters... Embarrassing, dood.
Kaneki: an easier way to delete old posts,, i always end up typing something and regretting it (a lot) later rip
Got in the HyperUniverse Alpha! What's with the NDA though? No images or videos, seriously? ... more
Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC pack details are out! ... more
tabs: I haven't played BotW since I got Puyo Puto Tetris. Too busy learning how to chain in Puyo Puyo. I like to think that I'm alright in Tetris. I can pull off combos and t-spins consistently; I'm trying to get faster at the B2B t-spin triples set up.
captain: @hawtnoodle: it's that good? :[email protected]:I presume you mean Puyo Puyo not Puyo PuTo :D Haven't heard that name for about... *gulp* 20 years almost. How is it?

benevolentia: What is the difference besides content now seeming to have a max-width & my navigation side-bar being stuck to it? I mean, I can sort of see something has changed, but I struggle to pin-point exactly what without a side-by-side comparison HAHA.
captain: @benevolentia stories now have a max height, which means that we can remove the pinterest-style plugin, which was causing issues with page loads speeds when you tried to loads lots of pages.
Look at this beautiful little game called Figment. It looks so unique and out there. Apparently the music and environment play a big role in the gameplay. ... more
joblessjim: I like the aesthetics of this :^)
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. ... more
captain: @privateereck yes! AC!D :D
privateereck: I haven't played that spin off series, but I played Portable Ops.
What're you all up to this Easter? Family? Friends? Gaming? All 3? ... more
FriedClams: I am waiting for the day after Easter when all the candy will be 50% off!
DeeMon: Gaming as usual, dood.

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. ... more
MizuiChan: Yeah, I know what you mean. Day 1 DLC sort of seems a little fishy to me and my bank account xD
Cool, how fun does Monster Boy look!? Nice Action RPG-ish type thing. ... more
Daimaohz: almost the same as this lulz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pr_dtRgC144
syrup: yeah totally @daimaohz! I thought the same. :)

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.
Hey all, hope you're well. Just thought I'd gauge your feedback on the recent update to include videos from various video game companies. ... more

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!
