I'd imagine the latency would kill it for us playing though :(

But yeah this game is fun as hell. I bought it on Steam and setup Steam family sharing so if I'm not playing anything on my Steam account, my gf can play it on hers. I am trying to convince her to just buy her own copy though.

The servers are getting absolutely slammed!
Uh, I'm going to have to buy this tonight. I just watched some videos and it looks fun as hell.
If buying on Steam, at least if you don't like it you can refund it. But yeah, I've already got my moneys worth even with the short time I've played it :olol:

Fuck (and I can't stress this enough) FUCK the ragdoll physics of this game. :olol: I understand that they want the gameplay to be wacky and fun, but I don't like feeling out of control. Especially on those damn see saws. It reminds me when Smash Bros introduced random tripping in Brawl.

Block Party and the hex mini games are great though. I hope that they make an offline, split screen mode sometime.

I get the feeling this game is going to be around for a long while.

Yeah the ragdoll can be frustrating for sure.

Did you buy it on steam? It wouldn't recognise my XB1 controllers on 2 PCs without me going into Steam big picture and forcing controller config or something, then it works fine with no big picture required.

This tweet should be relevant to you then.



Still no word of when they will add control options to PS4, though. I need inverted analog controls.

That would have been nice last week, but a 1 time fix sorted it for both PCs anyway :olol:

I did that when I bounced off the crown not realizing I had to grab it.

But in related news, I got my first crown! My heart was racing as I pulled off an insane Hex-A-Gone run. It was amazing.

Nice :D I've gotten 3-4 eliminations away from winning a crown Hex-A-Gone. I think I prefer it to Fall Mountain because it's easier to recover on Hex-A-Gone than catch to someone who makes a perfect run through an obstacle course.

I did Fall Mountain and had the lead the entire way, tripped near the top and got overtaken. I was so pissed. I've been seconds away from a crown so many times now :olol:

I got a Steam news update for Battlefield games on sale now!
EA have been busy, and I'll never let anyone shit on them for no effort games ever again, because according to Steam:
Battlefield V, Battlefield 1, Battlefield Hardline, battlefield 3 AND Battlefield 4 ALL released on June 12th 2020.
That is AMAZING... FIVE GAMES IN ONE DAY, and they've even put in pricing tiers as well!!!

Actually I will shit on EA, because Battlefield Bad company 2 (The only truly amazing Battlefield game since REAL Battlefield 2)
still costs $7.48 at 75% off...
FUCK UP EA! I got Bad company 2 on steam for like $14 a decade ago. LITERALLY A DECADE AGO... FUCK YOU IT STILL COSTS $29.95!!!
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

It finally happened. I bought the game on Steam. Now I have to start all over, but at least I can finally play with people.

Now, teaming up with the original development team, Strictly Limited Games is excited to bring back this legendary IP.”

An exclusive trailer and more about the 30th brithday edition will be announced during the Gamescom 2020: Opening Night Live stream on August 27 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET, which you will be able to watch on YouTube and Twitch. After the reveal, Strictly Limited Games will open pre-orders for the exclusive and limited editions via its online store.

Further details were not announced.
