  1. I was planning on buying and playing this game on GOG at some point, but I think I'll watch this first anyway.
  2. Man I remember playing the demo for this ten years ago. That was fun. The game never got a sequel or anything, and I don't see many people talking about it these days, so it probably is decent Game Dungeon fodder. Watching Ross try to survive La-Mulana would be...interesting, to say the least.
  3. Socialists: resource extraction and mindless consumption under kkkapitalism is destroying our planet! Also socialists: socialism can and must be a luxurious consumers' utopia, where consumption will remain at a constant, sustainable level that is 10x our current level
  4. Halfway through the video and Ross is making the game look like a frustrating experience. I know that feeling when you put up with frustration in a game because you really like other parts of it, but I think Sonic Heroes would probably end up just pissing me off. Some of it just seems like bad design that's baked into the franchise to an extent. I do like how Ross is asking the hard questions about Sonic, and to the SONIC CABAL at that.
  5. It's worth noting that the IPCC's recommendations on fighting climate change mostly amount to "sky high carbon taxes". Which is probably one of the easier things to actually get done, all things considered.
  6. Just want to mention that personal favorite puzzle game 3D Ultra Lionel Traintown has like half a dozen levels where you have to save Christmas. You know, in case you're starving for Christmas material next year.
  7. My mind wandered back to this game and now I'm going to try it out. I like rally racers and I kept thinking of that screenshot, plus the reviews saying the stages were not only long, but based off real geographic surveys. I've heard a couple people say this is almost the equal of Richard Burns and Colin McRae Rally, the two big names of classic rally games.
  8. Now that I look at it, I kind of wish there was a pure FPS category.
  9. Haven't watched the video yet, but I skimmed through a bit of the list and I can confidently say Harvester (1996) is a severely fucked up game. I watched the Retsupurae series on it, they basically commentate on a longplay MST style mainly to poke fun at the cheesiness. I consider that an acceptable method of experiencing the game - and experience it you should, for it's still quite interesting - especially since the last third features the unholy abomination that is adventure game combat.
  10. Seconding Titanic: Adventure Out of Time. It's a great old cult adventure game that needs more love. Since it's on Steam and GOG now, however, it might just get it.
  11. Survival Crisis Z, basically an old freeware zombie game like Project Zomboid. Definitely looked interesting enough to be on the show. Video here. Would also have to second Space Station Silicon Valley. Again, definite Game Dungeon material! Lastly may I suggest Fortnit-HRRRRRRK
  12. Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions is another original Xbox racer that I think would be a good fir for Game Dungeon. It's not well-known, it has some flaws but also some good points that make it ultimately fun. Like, on one hand some of the missions are so poorly designed they're frustrating to beat, but on the other hand there's an actual tank you can unlock and use as a vehicle.
  13. I honestly think Project Gotham Racing, the original Xbox launch title, would make for a good Game Dungeon episode. It's not as widely known as its sequel, the series it's in isn't as widely known since there hasn't been a new entry in a decade, and not only is it an eclectic racing game, it has an eclectic soundtrack with a lot of really obscure stuff, like this: The only potential hurdle is that it's only on the original Xbox, but that's nothing some good capture equipment can't deal with. Fun fact: it was the second best selling Xbox title after the first Halo, and Halo was the game that MADE the Xbox. If Halo somehow didn't exist, PGR would have had to try and make up for it, and as good as the game is, it wasn't quite the force Halo was. Sometimes I like to think what the console scene would look like if that had been the case.
  14. Rogue Warrior, for those of you who are blessed with ignorance, is an infamously bad FPS published in 2009 by Bethesda. IGN gave it a 1.5. The most notable aspect of the game is the fact that it stars a likeness of Navy SEAL Richard Marcinko, who is voiced by Mickey Rourke. Rourke (or his director) apparently thought the best way to capture the essence of Ricky Dick was by portraying him as a psychopathic maniac who swears roughly every two seconds; this is something that Marcinko apparently approved of. And now, a YouTuber by the name of Rotarna has extracted all the hilariously over the top dialogue from the game to use for...whatever. I'm just glad it's out in the world now, as perverse as that may sound, because I for one find it funny. Link is here.
  15. I'm surprised City 17 has tacos, but hey, how else are you gonna motivate Civil Protection?
  16. Here's my fashionably late homework assignment! It's hard to say what modern music I like because I've honestly never listened to many recent modern bands, and I dislike almost all of the top 40 pop/rap/country stuff you hear on the radio. I can name a couple bands from the 2000s I like, but my musical tastes are actually pretty wide. There's a good number of times I liked one or two songs from a band but wasn't as crazy about the rest of their work. These facts were true when I was high school-age, and they're still true now. If I had to choose, I'd say my primary interest groups are classic blues/country (think O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Fallout: New Vegas), Silent Generation-era oldies/jazz, certain types of electronica (primarily demoscene/chiptune/vaporwave/synthwave/ambientish stuff), classic rock, and power metal - or really any metal that doesn't sound like the Cookie Monster having a seizure. Bands/groups/individuals that fall into these categories include Marty Robbins, Muddy Waters, Louis Armstrong, Vera Lynn, Sabaton, Brothers of Metal, Metallica, Skaven, Boards of Canada, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and perhaps Johnny Cash. Game soundtracks deserve a special mention; they run the gamut but I'd have to single out distinctive indie OSTs with real work put into them, such as the soundtracks to Bastion and Into the Breach. The composer for Into the Breach, Ben Prunty, also made the music for FTL, and is in general a really talented electronic musician. I also like classical music and traditional cultural music like Scottish bagpipes/traditional Middle Eastern music/Native American flutes, but I couldn't say as much about individual artists for that stuff, since I regard the music as more prominent than its performers in most cases. Russian composers like Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky are some of my classical favorites that aren't super obvious and popular like Mozart and Beethoven. As for traditional cultural music, Clanadonia are great bagpipers while R. Carlos Nakai is perhaps the most famous Native American flutist. As for what's "coolest" out of all that stuff for a high schooler, I'd have to say it depends. Best overall is a toss-up between power metal and 1930s-40s music: driving ballads about historical battles and Norse mythology are undoubtedly a strong contender, and a lot of it is pretty recent, but Great Depression and WWII-era music has an undeniable historical/elegant chic. Traditional cultural music is a decent pick, since it carries a worldly sound, and being of the same nationality or ethnicity as the stuff you're listening to is a potential conversation starter. As others in the thread have said, classical music is timeless and enjoyable, and not exactly trending with The Youth, apart from perhaps the most popular and super obvious artists everyone hears in music class. Electronica would be a great fit for a geek/computer programmer, while game soundtracks and more chill stuff like Boards of Canada would fit for both geeks and artsy folks. Classic rock and metal wouldn't be out of place for a shop class tradesperson, but I can't say it would be my top pick. Old country would have historical chic similar to WWII oldies, but I'm not really sure where blues would fit.
  17. +1 for Drowned God. The moment I heard about this game I thought it was perfect Game Dungeon material.
  18. I liked the video, I think you gave some honest and constructive criticism of the game, but I just have to say there actually is a Life is Strange 2 being made. So there's not just a prequel here.
  19. That admiral has to be the most chill military officer I've ever seen. It's great. Loved the episode BTW, this was a neat one.
  20. Kronolog: The Nazi Paradox, a 1993 DOS adventure game with average gameplay, but a highly intriguing alt-history Nazi victory setting. The European version is called "Red Hell" and substitutes Nazis for Soviets.
