Got all my Killing Floor perks to level 5 and up. So that's sort of cool.

Other than that it's still all about Fallout 4.

Looks kind of xcom-like? Hmmm I might pick it up too.

Nnnot really. It's more like if Alien Swarm didn't suck.

Would any of y'all be interested in getting together sometime for some Jackbox Party Pack? You don't need the game to play, just go on the website and you can use your phone/computer as a controller. Of course, this would mean that I'd need to host the game on a streaming website that had low delay, or alternatively we could all get in a Skype call and I could share my display.

Playing a lot of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup again lately. I got another win! With a Formicid Fighter of Cheibriados, which means I won with a character who moves at half speed and can't teleport. I'm pretty proud of that.

For anyone who likes Mega Man, a new update just came out for Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch, adding in campaign content for Mega Man 9. The game's really great, it's a mod of Doom 2 and it has content for games 1-9, Mega Man & Bass, and The Wily Wars. The community's kinda small, but there are almost constantly at least 1 or 2 multiplayer servers up.

I streamed some Death Road to Canada the other night if anyone wanted to see what that's about. This video will probably only be up for a few days though.

Wow, it's like an RPG version of Organ Trail.

Okay, so recently I finished (well, completed the main game, anyway; there are post-game side quests which I've just started) Pokémon Y and, for want of something new to play (which isn't Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, which I've been playing to death), I picked up a copy of Yoshi's Island DS. I had this first time around with the actual DS, but didn't really get into it and lost my copy. Got a new one off Amazon and have given it a go.

There's one level towards the end of the game which is probably impossible; specifically, one jump where a pixel out of place means instant death. Yoshi's hit box is frustratingly large at times, so I've been completely unable to progress anywhere past the halfway point in this level. It's making me cry with frustration and at one point I punched myself so hard that my girlfriend tried to make me stop all activity for fear of damaging my internal organs.

Has anyone else played this game and/or completed the damn thing? It's driving me crazy!

I made the mistake of retrying Worms: Clan Wars again today. I guess I just forgot how bad it really was. It runs like crap on my computer, even with the graphics settings at their lowest and an FPS booster, gameplay is sluggish and slow, you can't move the camera with the mouse, you can't even play against a CPU in deathmatch and HOLY CRAP this game is just terrible and sloppy and it sucks. I remembered it being mediocre but I wasn't expecting it to just be this bad. Wow.
EDIT: I'm willing to give Worms: Clan Wars another shot once I get a better PC, but I kind of flipped out when I realized you couldn't play against a CPU in deathmatch. It's such a shame they keep trying to top Worms: Armageddon but can't even be bothered to re-add a basic feature from like EVERY WORMS GAME EVER.

Besides that I've been playing Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube. Gotta love that Weegee.

I love Luigi's Mansion, and there's a variable ending so you can play it again and again.

Luigi's Mansion 2 is great too, although the third boss is crazy hard.

Road Redemption will be out of early access soon-ish. Will be interesting to see what the online multiplayer is like. There's already quite a lot to play through. The cars make for hilarious obstacles - causing pileups getting airtime on hills, and struggling to navigate sharp bends. There's also a car rain mode:
