    a couple little things I noticed in the screenshots (didn't bother watching the video):
    curses seem to have a visible mark on the HUD (above the item HUD, below the map)
    item HUD rows are sets of 4 and smaller now

    really like the item HUD change, makes it actually useful now
    EXTREMELY excited for this release, looks pumped full of awesome things

    I was the first one, so I wanted to leave a little bit of time for some other people to hopefully get their first picks out of the way. Now that some more people have shown up, I think I'll come back and add The Last Door + The Last Door: Season 2, because it's one of the two entries in the Horror section that caught my eye (the other being White Night), Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY Edition since I have kind of wanted to play one of these since the 2nd one came out, and this one is more to my hardware level, and Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, which I've wanted to give a shot ever since I first watched someone play through it when I was 13 or so.

    If anyone else wants any of these as their first pick and sees this post though, please shoot me a message, since I'd rather someone else get their most desired picks like I did. :)

    I'll be the first one to show up at the Bundle Barrel :)

    If no one else is clambering to get their hands on them, I'd like to take the RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack, because as of about yesterday I was hit with a very intense desire to play a RollerCoaster Tycoon game, but I've long since lost the couple of physical we had as a kid. For my unusual pick, I know absolutely nothing about Unhack but the name is appealing.

    Thank you for putting all of this together, again. <3

    Had the luxury of playing this a few times on my cousin's PS4 recently, since the toaster I use for a personal computer couldn't hope to run it, and I agree that having pretty much any past knowledge of a CoD game will make it immediately appealing if you have some enjoyment of that style of gameplay still in you. I hadn't played a CoD game for something like 5, 6, 7 years or so and I picked this up and it was like putting on old gloves that still fit me. I'm also a fan of the gulag system, and honestly I think I'm just more of a fan of battle royales that implement a respawn system at this point. Mitigation of the whole "search for game -> wait for game to start in lobby -> drop -> die to some off-view bullshit -> queue again" series of events, even if it's one extra life, is a big plus in my book. I've yet to win a standard royale or give Plunder a real shot, but I agree with pretty much everything else you said here. I find it to be a really nice twist to the popcorn shooter gameplay that CoD (is/used to be) one of the most satisfying at doing.

    I came back to grinding for a higher time on Devil Daggers in the last couple of weeks, and last night I finally managed to get the single achievement after 158 hours recorded in Steam. I took a screenshot of the post-game leaderboard after that run, and of another run I did a bit afterward. I don't play on stopping here, I fell in love with this game because of its completely barebones focus on movement, aim, and self-improvement. Nothing ever changed about the game to make it easier or something. I just learned and got better. And that's such a wonderful feeling that I had to be reminded of through something like this game.

    I've also been playing the Steins;Gate VN at a slower pace than what I'd usually play a VN at, because I want to savour it. One thing I admire about it in the ~5 chapters I've played through so far is that the dialogue is very... deja-vu inducing. I've had multiple moments in this where I feel like I've seen almost the exact same conversation happen, and it's right after I boot the game back up for the day. If that pacing is that meticulous on purpose, then I can't wait to get into the later parts as well.

    Just sat down and gave this a full read like it deserves, absolutely lovely skip, the twist in the -EX sub-skip got a notable chuckle out of me when I got to it. I think I'm a sucker for -EX skips at this point, the last time I went on a big SCP binge I ended up finishing off with some of them and they were easily one of my favorite bits of the site that I wish I remembered to check more often. Stuff like the GOI hubs are also up there in things I love when I'm reminded to visit them.

    I love the SCP foundation and I've been reading it on and off roughly for the last 10 or so years!

    Started a long time ago with stuff like browsing 4chan's /x/ board as a kid (yeah i know), creepypasta wikis, eventually stumbled upon the site and some of the related fan-games of various kinds. There even used to be an SCP-087 fan game on Roblox! Anyway, I was hooked on the format, the idea of this "single universe" that's not actually singular, the way canon doesn't officially (and never will) exist, the way that you can construct this whole world and shape it to whatever your own personal favorite vision is.... It's so perfect to me. And it's all under a Creative Commons license, to boot. It's such a lovely effort by people who just..... love the idea of the SCP universe. Easily one of my favorite things that is still on the internet today.

    Some favorites:

    Captain Kirby's 001 proposal: O5-13

    Lily's 001 Proposal: The World's Gone Beautiful

    SCP-2316: Field Trip

    SCP-990: Dream Man

    SCP-1384: Taker of Turns

    SCP-1230: A Hero is Born

    SCP-001-EX: A Good Boy

    SCP-8900-EX: Sky Blue Sky

    SCP-2935: O, Death

    SCP-3009: Hi, I'm Your Snappelganger!

    SCP-3001: Red Reality

    SCP-3480: Olympus Mons

    SCP-4000

    SCP-4376: Have you tried just smiling more?

    SCP-4999: Someone to Watch Over Us

    By no means a definitive favorites list, but some classics and some that people might not have ever seen before. Definitely forgetting some incredible ones like the kids trapped in a very well known FPS game server, the one where the Foundation severely mistreats a low-threat anomalous person & is a commentary on therapists who don't do their job, the one about the submarine, the one about the massive eel creature, the one about the two living boats.... There's just too many.

    Oh yeah, I was by no means intending to bash Togashi for the hiatus, I just like to warn anyone who shows interest in the manga that it is not complete & has history of long hiatus.

    I love Togashi and it sucks that he seems to be having an incredibly rough time in recent years. Whatever it takes him to be happy & healthy is what he should do, even if that means it ends in him retiring. Would be absolutely awful if he's actually developed a long-term health condition from the work ethic.

    Selections from the last couple of times I've spent an afternoon or so looking through itch.io:

    Last Train Home - 5 to 10 minute horror experience. Simple, though the climax was notable to me since I'm a sucker for the kind-of-cliche presentation it had. Decently strong arachnophobia warning for anyone who might be interested in this, though.

    Text and Drive - I may have posted this here before? It's by the same dude who made 2:22 AM, which I've almost certainly posted here on tildes sometime before. Played this again and concept is so spot-on, even if the execution and experience playing it in janky unity web browser mode is.... less than desirable. Still not sure what to make of the final section, though, thematically at least.

    Extra Ordinary - Reminiscent of PS2 Scooby-Doo games rather than NES/SNES horror games, but that might be because I grew up with one instead of either of those. I didn't like it very much but there's probably a few people here who'd get a nice smile on their face from playing this.

    Intercontinental - Also by the same person who did Text and Drive & 2:22 AM. Kind of lovely, in a hopelessly doomed way. Makes me wonder what kind of messages I would send out to everyone I know, should I be facing an imminent death.

    I'm not any of the previous people who commented, but I hope you really enjoy Celeste. First time I played it, I played up through all A-sides and part of the B-sides before I moved on to other things.

    I eventually got the platformer itch back, returned to it and 100%'d (in achievement form, not true 100% everything) it and it was a very very very rewarding experience. I love that game, I hope you love it as well whether you pursue all the extra post-game stuff or not. :)

    Love it. Don't use them myself but love seeing people trying to buck the constraints of binary gender by carving their own path. I use them for whoever prefers them, but mirroring Gaywallet's experience, I've never met someone who also doesn't have a they/them or other traditional pronoun that they're also fine with people using.

    Does it make a difference? I think it does. Lots of people love to throw the concept of it under the bus of "oh it's just a fashion statement" or "oh it's just a zany snowflake label", but I like how it's a relatively quick filter you can inquire someone about. I know other queer people who don't like neo-pronouns and still default to they/them or whatever secondary preference the person has, but I rarely run into someone who has a strong hate for them that isn't also queerphobic in some other ways. YMMV of course, my experience.

    Will they stand the test of time? I'm not an expert enough to say so. I hope they do, but I would not be surprised if they don't.

    How did you feel in relation to your non-LGBT peers? Did you feel significantly different because of your sexual orientation or gender?

    I connected with my non-queer friends and all, but I never had anyone I could really talk to about things about sexuality or gender or mental health or stuff like that. None of those friendships were ever anything beyond surface level and I don't talk to anyone from high school anymore. There were a few people who were out about being trans or gay in high school, but they were often on the receiving end of notable amounts of harassment. That scared me deeply, added onto the fact that I knew my parents and other family wouldn't even begin to try and understand being anything other than cishet. So I was one of the cowards who stayed in the closet and unconsciously built a wall around myself.

    How does your sexual orientation or gender affect your daily activities that you feel is different from cis-/hetero folks don't experience?

    I don't talk to people in real life much, and the express reason for that is that I don't really want to build up any relationships of friendship with people when the odds are massively stacked in favor that they'll drop me, or potentially be malicious and out me to people I'd rather not have know about my identity. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a rude person. I can make casual conversation and I'm not a total bumbling idiot when I open my mouth, but people often describe me as "quiet" or "shy", which I'm indifferent to hearing. I just don't really see much of a reason to try and connect with people here when the majority of them are likely to slot me into the "freak" category in their head and stop talking to me. I don't think cishets really have to be afraid of that, at least from an identity perspective. In the future where I'm no longer in deeply conservative rural backwoods America, I hope I won't have to be so isolationist to feel safe.
