    Listen to this: https://austinwintory.bandcamp.com/a...oth-and-tail-2

    Wintory uses several leitmotifs in this album in different songs. The specific leitmotif I would suggest to you develops through "The Food of Beasts", "The Old South Distillery", "Who Becomes the Meat?", "The Ivories of Beasts", and "The Victors will Feast".

    If I had to put them in order of least to most refined, I'd go with "The Old South Distillery", "The Ivories of Beasts", "The Food of Beasts", "Who Becomes the...

    OOC Commentary:

    Hey folks. I don't have an update ready for this week, but I do have a question I'd like to put to you all.

    My last project didn't have a posse, or really any characters who accompanied the MC for long. What I am finding with this present quest is that the presence of the posse members poses some challenges. Specifically, I have to make sure that each member of the posse is:
    1. Not stealing the show from the main character
    2. Not useless
    3. Not boring
    4. Not getting more face-time than any other important character.

    ...

    I'm playing through Paradigm with a friend and.... well. It's not the weirdest adventure game I've ever played (that would be Jazzpunk), but it's up there. You know you're in for a wild ride when you walk out your front door and the first thing you see is a beatboxing eggplant....

    They needed to make one last detour, for munitions. From the beginning, Ash had counted on using a lot of dust to take down Stitch-Eyes. She had her bait, and now she needed the trap.

    "As to that," said Lans, pre-empting everyone else, "I have an idea." He put a hand to his chin. "The tower's wheels are of such a width and shaped in such a way that I believe the whole structure could be made to run along the railways."

    A brief silence followed this statement as the table silently wrestled with a mixture of confusion and disbelief. Zolt was...

    Started up Dark Souls 3.

    Co-op is easier to arrange in this game than either of the previous ones, but I feel like in some ways that's a bad thing. I ran through the High Walls region with a partner, and it completely changed the way the game plays. With two or three people double-teaming powerful enemies, very few of them are really threatening. And if one or both players already knows the level, then the risks and challenges of exploring unknown spaces is nullified.

    Dark Souls, in my experience, is at its best when you overcome dangerous and powerful opponents. That...

    I recently beat Divinity: Original Sin 2. One of the cleverer RPGs I've played, mechanically, but in all this talk of immersion I have to admit it almost encourages you to metagame.

    Also beat Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I feel like people give every Deus Ex game past the first one unnecessary grief for not being a more perfect Deus Ex game. I think that's silly - perfect games do not exist, and I've never played any sequel that improved on its predecessor in every way. Game design is both art and craft - it can be improved through iteration over time, but there is always going to be...

    I played that game. Wonderful setting, pretty good characters, unbalanced combat system, abysmal AI....

    "Where are the others?" Ash asked, with a deepening frown. "Are they alright?"

    Bo nodded. "They are well. You were the one most hurt. Serge has cracked ribs, but that is the worst of them."

    "I guess that's good, considerin'." Ash rubbed her eyes and sighed. "Well, if we all made it, I guess that we won and the town's safe."

    Bo nodded again, but then hesitated. "It... seems so," she began, uncertainly. "The shadowed land is gone. But we do not know what to do with the tower."...

    replied to Lunar dragon-blooded breeding?
    My In-Character Reason: because the way Lunars express their essence does not change with their form. A Lunar who turns into an owl is a still a lunar, able to use lunar charms and liable to reproduce some kind of beastmen instead of normal owls. A Lunar who turns into another human, then, even if it's a human who was Dragonblooded... will still be a lunar, and liable to reproduce lunar-essence-infused humans instead of Dragonblooded humans.

    My Out-of-Character Reason: Because that is hax OP bullshit, and I was already predisposed to nix any plan that had the words "Lunar"...

    The Ranger merely raised an eyebrow, shook her head and picked up her cards.

    She didn't remember sitting down at the table. She didn't remember having cards in front of her. But now she was, and there they were - and she frowned, because it was that hand again. Two black aces, two black eights, and...

    ...and something that wasn't a playing card at all. It had no markings she could read - it looked like a fortune-teller's card, with an elaborate painting instead of signs and numbers. The image on its face showed something shaped like a tower, but made of some kind of greenish,...

    This comment confuses me. I have a lot of complaints about their most recent releases (I have a screed about ME: Andromeda in this thread somewhere), but even so I can appreciate the qualities they have, if for no other reason than for the sheer amount of resources poured into them. Despite their problems, I liked those games and would recommend them to others.

    What, in your opinion, makes current Bioware offerings not "good" compared to their earlier work?

    What non-Bioware games are particularly "bad" and why?...

    Stitch-Eyes sat on the opposite side of the table. The Gentleman was nowhere to be seen.

    He did not look up, but he spoke almost as soon as she became aware of his presence. "Huh," he grunted. "Back for more, seƱora?" He had rows of cards laid out before him, and he moved cards from one row to the next as he spoke. "The old man stepped out. It's just you and me, now."

    He hummed to himself and swept up a row of cards into a pile on the side. The Ranger wondered how he could tell what the cards showed.

    "It's a dream, red,"...
