    @Morac - That's great! Let's make sure to meet up for a Whitechapel crossover.

    @James Cunningham: Rest assured, I will be pimping this game as much as humanly possible.

    @Sleestak: This sounds like an excellent idea!

    I gots me a fancy new computer, so I'm finally able to play video games on it. I tested out L4D2, and it runs so smoothly. So, yeah, if anyone isn't completely burnt out on zombie-killing (like all my IRL friends) my Steam username is brittanica.

    Oh L4D2. I only played through that with a couple friends this year, but damn was it fun.

    There was that one level with the gnome. You get the gnome to the end of the level, you get an achievement. We decided to do it.

    So the end of the level, there's the big encounter, multiple Tanks; etc. And we're doing pretty well--not great--but we're about to beat it, and both my friends and the computer player book for the helicopter, up in some bleachers. Being the first time I played the level, I went the wrong direction...toward a horde and a Tank! When I realize my mistake, I make a mad dash for the choppah, firing in all directions, jumping, watching my health slip away faster and faster--until finally I get right to the door of the helicopter, firing as I'm running backwards, with less than 5 health left, I yell IRL "THERE'S TOO MANY OF THEM" as I leap backward into the helicopter dual firing at a Tank that's inches away from tearing off my legs and it cuts to FMV and we win, gnome and all!

    It was awesome.

    I keep having these moments where I think "I'll just get past that one test on Portal 2 and head to bed" and then everything goes black and suddenly it's two hours later and my eyes hurt.

    DAMN what an awesome game.

    P2 was one of my favorites from last year, no shit.

    An acquaintance of mine made a Wheately puppet for Dragon-Con last year--it was dead on.

    Downloaded the beta of Batman: Gotham City Impostors. It's a lot of fun, sort of as if the Timesplitters team were handed the Batman license. Nice range of unusual gadgets and a distinct style make it feel a lot fresher than the rest of the FPSs out there.

    I just downloaded the demo for Syndicate. I'm enjoying it so far. Interesting looking bullet-riddled cyberpunk setting, fair amount of character customization, and the co-op missions demand actual teamwork. May end up getting this one when it comes out in a few weeks.

    Psychonauts 2? Oh yes, please!

    (Linked to the article I wrote on it. I'm never sure if that's considered bad form or not.)

    The Binding of Isaac is utterly brilliant. It's making me laugh and swear concurrently. I am swaughing.
    On top of that, Bethesda have just unleashed the creation kit for Skyrim, allowing folks to mod the hell out of it, and distribute their work through steam. This alone is brilliant, but they've only gone and released a high res texture pack as free DLC for pc.
    Unfortunately, the servers are being pounded and ETA is 12 hours. Humbug.

    Oh sweet jebus. A pal recommended me a game called Shadows of the Damned saying that it's right up my alley, and boy, was he right. What ticks me off with especially AAA-level games is that even when they try to be nasty and weird, they are kind of nice and conventional, and you rarely see the developers and writers really get to let their hair down. In case of this game, they set their hair on fire. This is weird and hilarious stuff, but if bad penis puns aren't your thing, skip this one.

    Yeah, this is the first Suda51 game I've played.

    @Vorna - one of Whitechapel's own worked on that...

    Hah, really? Figures :)

    I actually just beat Shadows of the Damned! It's very good, but the controls can be a tad sketchy when you get into hairy positions leading to frustration and it's fairly short(under 10 hours)

    That being said, it's a blast to play. The boss fights are pretty great, even though the last two stretch FOREVER.

    But, if you are at all capable in gaming, I suggest doing Legion Hunter/Hard. Even that wasn't very difficult. The most replays I had to do was maybe 4-5 on single part? And I think that was the final boss.

    Getting back into Okami so a friend can play it. That game is good but it's strangely resistant to being played. Something about it just refuses to hold my interest.

    With Shadows of the Damned, this is the kind of stuff I'm talking about. I mean... WTF :D There are these storybooks scattered in the game world, and if they have anything to do with the plotline, so far I haven't figure out what it is. But... yeah :D

  7.  (10421.137)
    Yeah, I did spend quite some time working on this game :).
    Glad you guys like it...

    I quite liked Shadows of the Damned as well. Sad that there wasn't a game+ or something extra after you beat the game though.

    The storybooks are just background for the bosses, but on top of that it sort of plays with the whole Mexican aesthetic and the oral tradition of the culture. I particularly enjoy the story and the sort of toying with the machisimo concept.

    Congrats, a damn fun game! What was your involvement in the project, if I may ask?
